Moment of freedom : the Heiligenberg manuscript by Jens Bjørneboe( Book )

64 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first novel in the acclaimed "History of Bestiality" trilogy. Living high in the Alps in a German principality, our narrator tells us he's dutifully fulfilling his obligations as a Servant of Justice and acting as a daily witness to injustice masquerading as a court of law. One day he notices that the judge is much too engrossed in looking at pornographic photographs showing various other pillars of the town engaged in a variety of sexual activities with minors. The incident propels him on a mental journey back through his life: black-humor fantasies and suicidal drinking binges; the Roman catacombs, warm summer nights in Brooklyn; brothels in Stockholm, his childhood in Norway, and wanderings in Germany. But aside from court records he has been keeping his own long and detailed account of man's cruelty to man in a massive twelve-volume study he calls his History of Bestiality. --

"This novel marks the apex and the culmination of the author Jean Bjomeboe's investigations into the nature of evil. Here the study moves to a broader canvas than in earlier works; the enquiring narrator explores not just European history, but the crimes committed by Europeans against the rest of humanity in the name of expansion and conquest. Cortez' destruction of the Aztec empire and Pizarro's of the Incas were crimes of genocide comparable with Hitler's against the Jews, and Columbus' glorious discovery of America becomes simply an act of colonialism: "The Indians had discovered America long before I came." His realization of European culpability and anticipation of the blood-bath that will ensue when the Third World claims its rightful share of the world's riches lead the narrator into a long plunge into the tunnel of depression, from which he emerges in a cathartic realization that human beings have not only an unfathomable capacity for evil, but also an immeasurable capacity for good; man is the destroyer of all things, but also the renewer of all things. The twenty-five years that have passed since this novel was first published have not diminished its relevance and its urgency."--Jacket

Bokens etiske perspektiv viser at seksualiteten er uskyldig så lenge moralbudene om redelighet, mot, alminnelig menneskelighet og hensynsfullhet følges. Boken med alle sine overdrivelser og påfunn ble utgitt første gang i 1967, og beslaglagt av politiet etter noen få dager. Både forfatter og forlegger ble dømt for å ha utgitt en utuktig roman som deretter ble inndratt. Bjørneboes essay Istedenfor en forsvarstale er trykt som etterord

ROMAN. 1. utg.: 1959, Aschehoug. Sem Tangstad er avviker i et lite snerpet og småborgerlig miljø. Hans barndom er historien om konflikten mellom barnets behov og de undertrykkende mekanismer det møter samfunn og familie. Men hans kunstneriske talent lar seg ikke stoppe av det fiendtlige småborgermiljøet. Jens Bjørneboe formidler med sin sedvanlige innlevelse og eleganse det spenningsfylte forholdet mellom en uvanlig kunstnernatur og omgivelsene
