The difficulties in working out the plot in a way which illuminates its engagement with history and memory are explored, as is its claim to narrate the life of the monk Medardus. The key notion of the apotropaic emerges as a nodal point in my reading of Hoffmann's complex and at times bewildering text. Most users should sign in with their email address.

Title: Die Elixiere des Teufels Monk Medardus Dieter Laser , administrator of the relic chamber of a Capuchin monastery, drinks from the elixirs of the devil and is confronted with the dark sides of his soul. Sixteen-year-old students of a grammar school are supposed to write essays on "Love".
Die Elixiere des Teufels
Published in , the basic idea for the story was adopted from Matthew Gregory Lewis 's novel The Monk , which is itself mentioned in the text. Although Hoffmann himself was not particularly religious, he was nevertheless so strongly impressed by the life and atmosphere on a visit to a monastery of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin , that he determined to write the novel in that religious setting. Characteristically for Hoffmann, he wrote the entire novel in only a few weeks. The Devil's Elixirs is described by some literary critics as fitting into the Gothic novel genre called Schauerroman in German. The Devil's Elixirs is predominantly a first-person narrative related by the Capuchin monk Medardus. He is ignorant of his family history and what he knows about his childhood is based upon fragments of memory and a few events his mother has explained to him. Medardus cannot resist the devil's elixir, which has been entrusted to him and which awakens in him sensual desires.
