CHARACTERS My Fantoms Théophile Gautier À 8 READ & DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF À Théophile Gautier Romantic provocateur flamboyant bohemian precocious novelist perfect poet not to mention an inexhaustible journalist critic and man about town Théophile Gautier is one of the major figures and great characters of French literature In My Fantoms Richard Holmes the celebrated biographer of Shelley and Coleridge has found a brilliantly effective new way to bring this great but too little known writer into English My Fan. Th ophile Gautier 1811 1872 one of the giants of 19th century French literature author of novels short stories essays plays and poetry was also a journalist who wrote reviews on literature theater dance and art especially art since in his younger years was himself a painter a background that served him well as his writing is visually stunning This fine collection of seven Gautier tales includes Omphale The Adolescent Clairmonde The Priest and G rard de Nerval The Poet however for the purpose of this review and in order to share a taste of Gautier I will focus on my favorite The Opium SmokerThe story begins with the narrator paying a call to the home of his friend one Alphonse Karr who happens to be smoking a pipe of opium Thinking nothing of the practice the narrator accepts the pipe from Karr and in turn tales several puffs inhaling the smoke into his lungs After his brief relaxed visit with Karr he goes home for dinner then to the theater so he can write his obligatory newspaper review and finally returns for a well deserved sleepHe has some sleep but the fantastic happens and our narrator relates the details of his vivid dream He s back at Karr s apartment Karr is on his bed smoking his opium pipe and all is similar to his afternoon visit but for one exception a decided lack of sunlight Repeating the seuence of events as if a mirror the narrator smokes his opium and lies down to feel the effects We read I was half immersed in a heap of cushions and lazily stretched back my head to watch the blue smoke rings rise swirling through the air and dissolve after a moment or two into a diffused haze of cotton wool By degrees my gaze shifted upwards to the ebony black ceiling with its design of golden arabesues As I stared up at it with that ecstatic intensity that precedes visionary experience I had the impression that the ceiling was now blue a deep inky blue like a strip torn out of the night sky This graphic passage exemplifies Gautier s painterly backgroundHe notes the ceiling s change of color to his friend Karr remarks such is the very nature of a ceiling so very much like a woman sheer caprice wanting to change all the time The narrator remains only half convinced by this line of reasoning and with a tincture of unease continues to closely observe the ceiling As if in response to his scrutiny the ceiling turns a deeper blue and stars began to appear stars having delicate golden threads stretching down filling the room with light while in the meantime the entire house had become as clear and as transparent as glassSlightly unsettled by such mystical transformations the narrator wonders what his childhood friend Esuiros the Magician would have to say about this instant shapeshifting No sooner does he have this reflection then to his stupefaction Esuiros is standing before him Wow now that s magic He asks Karr how Esuiros entered the room since the door is closed to which Karr explains magicians always walk through closed doors The narrator takes such a well formulated statement to be an obvious example of sound logicAt this point Esuiros eye become enormous round and glowing and his body dissolves and turns into swirls of sparkling light winding around the narrator s body with a progressively tighter grip In this restricted state the narrator sees whiffs of rising white smoke taking humanlike form and hears a voice whisper in his ear that they are spirits He also sees for the first time a beautiful young barefoot girl sitting up in the corner of the ceiling who tells those rising white smoke spirits that she does not want to join them but would rather live for another six monthsThe young beauty explains to the narrator that if he goes into town and gives her a kiss on the lips of her dead body she will live for six months and live for him alone Upon hearing her promise without the slightest hesitation the narrator sets off in a carriage pulled by two magical black horses During his travels he relates We sped across a dark and dismal plain There was a low leaded sky and an endless procession of small spindly trees flying away on both sides of the road in the opposite direction to the coach for all the world like a routed army of broomsticks Nothing could have been sinister than the huge brooding greyness of that sky scored by the black silhouettes of those skeletal flying trees Sidebar this entire coach seuence has much in common with a similar opium induced coach ride in Sdegh Hedyat s The Blind OwlThe opium dream continues related in vintage Th ophile
