Introducción

Es una tradición en Counter-Currents recordar al gran filósofo de la historia alemán, Oswald Spengler, en el aniversario de su nacimiento, 29 de Mayo.

As an artist, intellectual, author, and cultural force, Wagner has left an immense metapolitical legacy, which is being evaluated and appropriated in the North American New Right. I wish to draw your attention to the following writings which have been published at Counter-Currents/North American New RightRead more …

O monstro

Wagner_Caricature_251,685 words

English original here

Translated by Lawrence

Ele era um homenzinho pequenino, com uma cabeça grande demais para seu corpo — um homenzinho adoentado. Ele sofria dos nervos. Ele tinha problemas de pele. Para ele, era uma agonia ter que usar qualquer coisa próximo à pele que fosse mais áspera do que a seda. E ele tinha ilusões de grandeza.  Read more …

Tristan & Isolde

John William Waterhouse, "Tristan and Isolde Sharing the Potion," 1916

John William Waterhouse, “Tristan and Isolde Sharing the Potion,” 1916

4,526 words

From D’Annunzio’s novel Il trionfo della morte (The Triumph of Death, 1894)

Translated by V. M. Crawford

Giorgio Aurispa had not forgotten a single episode of his first religious pilgrimage towards the Ideal Theatre; he could recall every instant of his extraordinary emotion in that hour when he had first seen on the fair hillside, at the further extremity of a long leafy avenue, the building dedicated to the supreme festival of Art; he could reconstruct the amphitheater in its solemn vastness, girdled by columns and arches, the mystery of the Mystical Gulf.
