What People are Saying About This

Jorge Bortes
The Cabalah...found in the ghettos a suitable home for its strange speculations on the nature of God, the magical power of letters, and the possibility of creating a man in the same way that God created Adam. This homunculus was called the Golem...Gustaf Meyrink uses this legend...in a dreamlike setting on the other side of the mirror and he has invested it with a horror so palpable that it has remained in my memory all these years.
E. F. Bleiler
From a literary point of view, Meyrink is one of the most talented and most annoying satirists to emerge in twentieth century Germany, and also who had the ability to prick his victims into a frenzy that is now difficult to understand. He was also one of the earliest expressionist writers, and certainly the foremost twentieth century novelist of the supernatural. He is now remembered mostly for Der Golem (The Golem), a mystical love story of charm, tenderness and terror.
