by Paul Busson
“The Man Who Was Born Again” is a historical novel written on romance. Author of the novel is Paul Busson. Paul Busson (1873–1924), Tyrolean and Viennese journalist, was well-known in his time as perhaps the finest adventure fantasy in early twentieth-century German literature. The Man Who Was Born Again, story of reincarnated memories in eighteenth-century Germany and France, offers a fine integration of supernatural powers, ghosts, witchcraft, black magic, demons, and evocation of the dead. It is unique in its combination of wild imagination and realism. There are 51 chapters in the novel where author combined wild imagination and realism with magical words, suspense and romance. Author picked and circulated the characters very beautifully.
Unfortunately, today, Paul Busson seems to be forgotten in the Germanic world except as a journalist in the memory of a now very old generation. But his readers know his novels offer inimitable universes, where fantasy assumes such strong actuality that it achieves its own reality.
