Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the presence of four Continental writers who were themselves imaginatively engaged in “theologicophilological” questions. These indicate the presence of Arthur Schopenhauer both in Mr. Duffy's mind and in that of the implied narrator in “A Painful Case”. Two of these writers, Friedrich Nietzsche and Gerhart Hauptmann, are discussed in this chapter, along with Schopenhauer's progeny.
