The black spider by Jeremias Gotthelf( Book )

495 editions published between 1861 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An NYRB Classics Original. It is a sunny summer Sunday in a remote Swiss village, and a christening is being celebrated at a lovely old farmhouse. One of the guests notes an anomaly in the fabric of the venerable edifice: a blackened post that has been carefully built into a trim new window frame. Thereby hangs a tale, one that, as the wise old grandfather who has lived all his life in the house proceeds to tell it, takes one chilling turn after another, while his audience listens in appalled silence. Featuring a cruelly overbearing lord of the manor and the oppressed villagers who must render him service, an irreverent young woman who will stop at nothing, a mysterious stranger with a red beard and a green hat, and, last but not least, the black spider, the tale is as riveting and appalling today as when Jeremias Gotthelf set it down more than a hundred years ago. The Black Spider can be seen as a parable of evil in the heart or of evil at large in society (Thomas Mann saw it as foretelling the advent of Nazism), or as a vision, anticipating H.P. Lovecraft, of cosmic horror. There's no question, in any case, that it is unforgettably creepy"--
Ulric, the farm servant by Jeremias Gotthelf( Book )

Jérémias Gotthelf est né à Morat dans le canton de Fribourg en 1797 sous le nom d'Albert Bitzius. Gotthelf est un pseudonyme d'écrivain tiré de son premier roman, Le Miroir du paysan ou la vie de Jérémias Gotthelf. Après des études de théologie à Berne et à Göttingen et quelques éclats de verbe et d'écriture qui freineront sa carrière, il obtient en 1832 une petite paroisse dans une vallée retirée de l'Emmental, à Lützelflüh, qu'il ne quittera plus jusqu'à sa mort en 1854.Mais très vite sa réputation d'écrivain épique franchira les frontières de sa vallée, de son canton et même de Suisse. Défenseur des valeurs essentielles, dont il fait de ses paysans les dépositaires, il veillera jalousement à ce que les idées nouvelles ne viennent pas pervertir un mode de vie tout empreint de mesure, de travail, d'esprit de partage ou d'équité. Jérémias Gotthelf ne cessera de fustiger l'esprit de lucre, la tyrannie des possédants, l'avarice ou l'amour-propre.Tout cela serait aujourd'hui oublié si Gotthelf ne s'était pas révélé un très grand écrivain. Polémiste à l'occasion, il apparaît aujourd'hui comme le chantre le plus inspiré d'un certain monde disparu : la campagne bernoise, la Suisse la plus profonde, agreste et romantique, réaliste aussi mais avec le souci premier de défendre une tradition d'autonomie absolue, de liberté et d'authenticité. Ses romans, pédagogiques, souvent moralistes, sont autant de descriptions précises, concrètes de cet univers campagnard oublié, mais pour lequel, à la lecture, on ne peut s'empêcher d'éprouver une nostalgie poignante.Gotthelf est considéré aujourd'hui comme un des écrivains majeurs de la littérature européenne du XIXe siècle. " Le plus grand écrivain réaliste de la Suisse, un original et grand génie épique ", dira de lui Gottfried Keller. Lützelflüh, la modeste bourgade de l'Emmental, est devenue par le pouvoir de ses livres un lieu mythique, le miroir des paysans, le village d'Uli le valet de ferme qui deviendra maître de sa ferme, d'Elsi la servante et de Kathy la grand-mère.
