The ogre of the title is Abel Tiffauges a French mechanic who first appears a kind of autistic naif strange rather than frightening in his obsessions or perversions It begins in France 1938 in the years before Hitler s invasion then as the war progresses the setting moves eastward into a winter world of horror and ultimately transcendence which I admit doesn t tell you much It s an unusual demanding novel to my mind a work of genius unlike anything I ve ever read including the other great eually odd novels of Tournier Gemini Friday The Four Wise MenNot a book for the weak hearted

Le Roi des Aulnes review Å 100 read & download Le Roi des Aulnes E passage of strange gentle Abel Tiffauges from submissive schoolboy to ogre of the Nazi school at the castle of Kaltenborn taking us deeper into the dark heart of fascism than any. Michel Tournier s Der Erlekonigaka The Ogre aka Le roi des aulnes accomplishes the remarkable feat of making the reader feel even ueasier than does the poem by Goethe from which it takes its nameI still recall reading Goethe s poem in my last year of High School surrounded by old friends The Erlekonig is the ogre of the alders lurking in the trees waiting to grab and kill children In Goethe s poem a child is riding with his father who is driving his horse at a furious gallop hoping to reach home before the dreaded Erlkonig takes the child Alas it is not to be The boy dies in the last stanza leaving my friends and I in the class horrified Goethe indeed created a masterpiece of terrorTournier s version of the tale is even unsettling to the reader His protagonist is a socially awkward automobile mechanic who seems to be of rather sub par intelligence His name is Able Tiffauges which is the name of the property of Gilles de Rais the supposed historical model for Blue Beard Tiffauges unlike most Catholic men who arew instructed follow in the footsteps of St Joseph Tiffauges Saint Christopher as his role model His great dream is to be a porter of male children At this point the reader becomes uite worried sensing that Tiffauages is a very strange person who could uickly develop into a predatory paedophile What happens is indeed uite horribleTiffauges enrols in the French army during WWII is taken prisoner changes sides and is transferred to the Eastern Front He is assigned the job of kidnapping Lithuanian boys to be trained as soldiers to be used against the rapidly advancing Russian army The dimwitted Tiffauges initially believes that the boys are being trained for an elite officers corps When he realizes the truth it is of course too late Tiffauges tries to redeem himself by saving one of the boys from being killed He picks a particularly nice Jewish lad and flees Tiffauges and the boy are soon caught Tiffauges is killed In the view of some the author leaves the issue of the boy s survival open although from my view the text suggest that the boy dies as well The other opinion would have to be based on an interview with the author or same other statement outside of the book itselfHowever the last page is interpreted Der Erlekonig is a profoundly unsettling book The reader feels ill from the experience of having spent so much time inside the unhealthy mind of Tiffauges Nonetheless Tournier s novel is a tour de force He convinces us that the child eating ogre of the alders is indeed a reality in our unhappy world
