LA Otra Parte

Return to Book Page. Another voice from my peanut gallery: I could see that. As I said, it seems like the 20th century was about to bear out this perspective quite readily. View all 8 comments.

I adore Kubin as an artist and no less as a writer. If only more artists would use writing to express themselves, to convey their art through words, what I would give to read something wr My th rating here Apparently Kafka read it and enjoyed it. On the surface this is a story about a person who gets an invitation from his old school friend Patera to join him in ogra newly founded Dream Country.

Pardon me, I haven’t been sleeping much at all and I am coming from invisible germs on sweaty palms and stomach numbing nerves. View all 68 comments.


The Other Side by Alfred Kubin

The Other Side is a gloomily satirical novel showing some fine rudiments of absurdism and it is a kind of a mystical dystopia. Lists with This Book. I don’t understand why it is not more widely known. Where’s the community, other than some grumbling about coughs not other worldly people stuff? Blah blah blah Kubin was a pessimist and tortured small animals in his youth I thought that was a serial killer sign but what do I know?

He put this gigantic instrument to his lips-it roared so that the universe shook. I have wanted this book for so long but because it is out of print had difficult tracking it down. Being inside Kubin’s head is a dangerous and very scary place to find oneself, even if it’s only for the duration of the book. It has his black-and-whites throughout. Study of the subconscious mind?

It was reprinted a number of times since it was written around I think with more and more of his autobiography added – obviously as he wrote it. I didn’t like being told that they all belonged together in spite of that. The Dream Land was like that, to me. Imagine yourself in another world where people commit orgies in the streets and snakes curl under your bead-sheet. I liked the written descriptions of what would have been drawings.


If I saw it in a dream that didn’t mean I could have stopped it from happening. Wild and ora, mostly in the second half and in this translation.

The Other Side

If I was one of the kids who fucked up on the first hour of my visit to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory I might feel like this. This is a thoroughly odd, macarbre, and gruesome tale, beginning as a shoddy dystopia and then speeding towards the most disturbing, surreal, Freudian and violent finale possible.


This is what I liked about The Other Side: He has even gone so far as to move buildings from throughout the world into his new kingdom, They Surrealistic nightmare? The nurse was a fucking bitch, though, and I’m ogra she would have made some mouth noise I could have construed as an invader from the kubih mental lands across the gray mass seas.

Unfortunately this is an example of the sum being less than the parts. The Dreamland is pretty nightmarish. You’ll make me cry, I swear. Villagers abuse their dinner forks. Orta che non ci siano limiti, che tutto sia vissuto come da sonnambuli, che due giocatori di scacchi non finiscano mai la loro partita?

Apr 30, Nancy Oakes rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just east of Samarkand This eventually moderated itself into a year career in painting and illustration, but those earliest, rougher works are his most urgent, some of the most bleakly memorable of the entire Symbolist milieu. Tiene un gran manejo de las palabras, de las frases que utiliza para narrar las situaciones que enfrenta nuestro protagonista. There are illustrations in the book but I liked the descriptions better than the drawings.
