Mars in Aries

Mars in Aries

By Alexander Lernet-Holenia

A masterwork and one of the most strikingly unique and sophisticated novels in twentieth century German language literature, Alexander Lernet-Holenia's Mars in Aries was immediately banned upon its publication in book form in 1941. Although this story of a romance between an aristocratic Wehrmacht officer and a mysterious woman in Vienna set against the 1939 invasion of Poland was deemed unacceptable fare for Third Reich readership due to its ambiguity, lack of heroic military images, and the sympathetic portrayal of a suffering Poland, the novel's actual purpose and highly subversive quality were hardly suspected by the Ministry of Propaganda.
