'Through two tragic visions of historical destinies and with a unique style, Klabund shows how human nature alternately and invariably does Evil or Good.'
Pierre Deshusses in Le Monde.
Mohammed can be compared to a gorgeous series of visions of the life of the Prophet, of whom Napoleon said that in thirty years, he had achieved what had taken Christendom three centuries.
With a breathtaking rythm, frantic successions of images and its masterful economy of words, Raspoutine possibly is the novel most representative of Klabund's expressionnist style.
