The relentless nihilism of Schaefer's only and almost entirely forgotten novel still shocks today. The savage notes of a wife's murderer awaiting execution in prison leads into abysses of thought and sexual obsessions without regard for moral taboos. With its bold experiments in language, this novel, like Schaefer's shorter works, is among the most radical and at the same time blackest texts of literary modernism.

Abstract

The relentless nihilism of Schaefer's only and almost entirely forgotten novel still shocks today. The savage notes of a wife's murderer awaiting execution in prison leads into abysses of thought and sexual obsessions without regard for moral taboos. With its bold experiments in language, this novel, like Schaefer's shorter works, is among the most radical and at the same time blackest texts of literary modernism.
