JUNGER, Ernst
(1895-)
   German writer whose early works reflected his experiences in WWI. Auf den Marmorklippen (1939; trans Stuart Hood as On the Marble Cliffs 1947 UK as by Ernst Juenger) - though its status as a classic of resistance to Nazism has been somewhat shaken by analysis of its broodingly passive austerity regarding political action - is a peculiarly resonant allegory of the destruction of a civilized country by an incursion of vandal-like conquerors. Glaserne Bienen (1957; trans Louise Bogan and Elizabeth Mayer as The Glass Bees 1960 US as by Ernst Juenger)also applies an allegorical mode to the story of the creation and use of ROBOT bees for industrial work. Heliopolis (1949), an ironical UTOPIA,remains untranslated.
