dbo:abstract
  • Heliopolis is an utopistic or dystopian novel by Ernst Jünger published in 1949. In the fictional city of Heliopolis the henchmen of a Proconsul and a Landvogt (“country master” or “land reeve”) fight each other. Commander Lucius de Geer belongs to the staff of the Proconsul, but he stands more and more aloof these inner fights. Finally he leaves Heliopolis. The novel connects speculative fiction with philosophic excursions and historical allusions.The novel takes place in the future at a time not exactly given. Heliopolis is described as a metropolis in the Mediterranean. It controls enormous areas and regions. The names of the countries in the novel indicate, that Jünger did not want to imply a specific location. In Greek mythology the Hesperides are regions in the far west of the then known world, here they are new discovered areas not completely explored. Also the "Burgenland" ("Castle County"), Asturia, the Parsi and the Mauretanians do not really match existing countries or people of this or similar name. They rather stand for different political directions or systems.Jünger readopts several names and topics from his earlier novel On the Marble Cliffs like the Landvogt and the Mauretanians, and would again use several aspects of Heliopolis later in Eumeswil. Eumeswil shows a fictional world based on Heliopolis carrying on the developments described here. (en)
