The Swiss writer Friedrich Glauser spent much of his life at one or the other mental institution in Switzerland Amidst his treatments, he wrote four novels that were to become classics in European crime fiction In Matto s Realm is one of them, and it is rather good Matto, in Italian, is the spirit of madness, and it appears to rule in an asylum in Bern, whence a child murderer escapes and the director is found with a broken neck When the sympathetic sergeant Studer is brought in to cover up The Swiss writer Friedrich Glauser spent much of his life at one or the other mental institution in Switzerland Amidst his treatments, he wrote four novels that were to become classics in European crime fiction In Matto s Realm is one of them, and it is rather good Matto, in Italian, is the spirit of madness, and it appears to rule in an asylum in Bern, whence a child murderer escapes and the director is found with a broken neck When the sympathetic sergeant Studer is brought in to cover up the case with the approval, strangely enough, of his superiors , he finds that there are castes and hatreds and religious maniacs and sexual rivalries galore within the institution The blurb says that Studer finds it hard to resist Matto himself, finding himself drawn into the no man s land between reason and madness , but this is an exaggeration Studer remains warmly analytical throughout, even if some of his efforts at resolving the mysteries go awry and an innocent man ends up dead He is shaken by the consequences of his actions, but he is too good a man and detective to ignore the truth This is a slow burning novel of humour and understanding, written with intimate knowledge of the world of the insane Glauser has certainly put to good use his own unfortunate experiences Synopsis a child murderer escapes from a Swiss insane asylum and Studer discovers the director s body Matto, the spirit of insanity, reigns P 1937.

spicca la figura del medico psichiatra Laduner, lui che chiama Studer, l investigatore, al fine di indagare sulla fuga di un paziente e sulla scomparsa del direttore dell ospedale.Laduner della scuola moderna della psichiatria, pratica anche la psicanalisi con un giovane paziente, ha portato colori e libert agli ammalati, esige il rispetto della dignit dei pazienti e della loro malattia Glauser con

geologo parla con precisione delle cause che hanno scisso una montagna, cos noi parliamo con precisione dei meccanismi psichici che hanno scisso una mente Ma noi siamo cauti, caro Studer, e quanto dico noi penso a quei pochi del nostro mestiere che non credono di poter risolvere l enigma della psiche umana con qualche infelice mistione linguistica di greco e latinopg 104 105 op.citRispetto a coloro che lavorano con i matti e a quelli fuori quelli normaliHa riflettuto sul fatto che non si pu avere a che fare troppo tempo coi matti restando illesi, Studer Che il contatto contagioso A volte mi sono chiesto se non sia vero il contrario che nei manicomi vanno a lavorare come medici, come infermieri solo quelli che hanno gi una rotella fuori posto, per usare un espressione popolare Con la differenza che chi avverte l impulso di entrare nel regno di Matto sa di avere in s qualcosa che non va, a livello inconscio, io credo, eppure lo sa.E una fuga Gli altri, fuori, a volte sono quelli che hanno pi rotelle fuori posto, ma non lo sanno, neppure a livello inconsciopg 207 08 op.citUno psichiatra illuminato , umano e rispettoso del malato e della malattia, chiss se Glauser ebbe la

involving Detective Studer, this installment taking place in a Swiss psychiatric hospital The director and a patient have gone missing and Studer, who has been demoted and disgraced, has been sent there to discretely make inquiries The acting director has requested him personally What Studer walks into is a complicated web of close, but not always friendly, relationships, with each person hiding something, nonethan the enigmatic acting director, a psychiatrist who alternates between seemingly sincere friendship and a smiling mask First published in 1936, In Matto s Realm shows the living and working conditions in a supposedly modern institution Glauser also says quite a lot about the difficulty the ordinary working man had in just making ends meet, and how that was often an insurmountable task He has great sympathy for ordinary men broken by circumstance In this, the book is interesting and an important memory of the past On the other hand, the mystery itself was convoluted and required a lengthy explanation at the end of the book, which is where most of the action occurs This is a worthwhile book if you re interested in Europe during the interwar years or in the history of the German mystery novel Nonetheless, as a crime novel it falls short, although there are a few intriguing characters and Glauser writes with real empathy for the people at the bottom of society This is the second Glauser Struder novel I ve read and with neither was I able to follow the plot This one, first published in 1936 portends Hitler and Nazism quite clearly but on the sidelines and is of interest for that contemporaneous note, if nothing else.Ah But there is something else About half two thirds of the way through the book, I had the strong impression I was reading

else About half two thirds of the way through the book, I had the strong impression I was reading Foucauldian theory But it must predate that, as Foucault was only 10 years old in 1936 Who is the author over there, laughing Well, maybe Foucault read Glauser Foucault did, after all, have a big interest in medicine and institutions And this novel is all about both of those.Add to the mix that Glauser himself was diagnosed schizophrenic and it makes for a really interesting book, and then the murder plot is completely irrelevant Or maybe I missed something.I have a sense that I need to read it again, but maybe not straightaway ^DOWNLOAD ⇮ In Matto's Realm ↛ Despairing plot about the reality of madness and life, leavened with strong doses of bittersweet irony The idiosyncratic
