Sample text

Hos vår Steppeulv var det altså slik at han i sine følelser levde snart som ulv, snart som menneske - slik er det jo hos alle blandingsvesener - men dertil kom at når han var ulv, lå mennesket i ham alltid på lur og iakttok, dømte og fordømte - og når han var menneske, gjorde ulven det samme. Hvis for eksempel Harry som menneske hadde en vakker tanke, eller næret en fin, edel følelse eller utførte en såkalt god gjerning, så flekket ulven i ham tenner og lo og viste ham med blodig forakt hvor dårlig hele dette edle komediespill kledde et steppedyr, en ulv som innerst inne var fullt klar over hva han egentlig likte, nemlig å trave ensom over steppene, nå og da drikke blod eller jage en ulvinne - og sett fra ulve-standpunktet ble da hver menneskelig handling fullstendig komisk og flau, dum og forfengelig.

I dens imaginære sfære blir alle steppeulvers forvirrede og splittede ideal virkeliggjort. Her foreligger muligheter til ikke bare å godta helgenen og vellystingen, til å bøye polene mot hverandre, men også til å ta med borgeren i denne godtagelsen. For den som er besatt av Gud, er det i høyeste grad mulig å godta forbryteren og likeså omvendt, men for begge disse to og for alle andre ubetingede er det umulig å godta det nøytrale, lunkne midptunkt, det borgerlige. Bare humoren, den herlige oppfinnelsen av dem som er blitt hemmet i å nå det største, av de nesten tragiske, av de velbegavede ulykkelige, bare humoren (kanskje menneskehetens mest spesielle og geniale prestasjon) virkeliggjør dette umulige, overgyter og forener alle områder av det menneskelige med strålene fra sine prismer.

I ungdommen, da han fremdeles var fattig og hadde vanskeligheter med å tjene sitt brød, foretrakk han å sulte og gå i fillete klær, bare det kunne skaffe ham et visst mål av uavhengighet. Han hadde aldri solgt seg for penger og vellevnet, til kvinner eller til de mektige, og hadde hundre ganger kastet bort og slengt fra seg det som i verdens øyne tjente til hans fordel og fremgang, bare for å kunne bevare sin frihet. Han kunne ikke tenke seg noe mer motbydelig og redselsfullt enn å skulle utøve et embede, overholde en bestemt inndeling av dagen og året eller å måtte adlyde andre.
