Description
A narrative told with 167 woodcut designs about a man who "goes into life with young eyes, with a spirit fresh and naive with a heart full of love and tenderness only to come out wounded, bitter skeptical. He seeks solitude and wishes to die alone but his spirit is reborn in a mocking laugh", with foreword by Romain Rolland.
