These efforts sort of culminate in the novel "L'Atlantide" published in by Pierre Benoit Now it is the turn of Germany to provide new theories revolving around Atlantis , but they are tainted almost immediately -- the only exception being Gerhard Hauptmann's novel "Atlantis" of -- by National-Socialist ideology.

Rosenberg who managed to make Jesus Christ a descendant of Atlanteans by claiming that those had once settled in Galilee ; and 4. VN is surely right to dismiss this newest claim to rediscover Atlantis in one's backyard, but he might have found another place in his book to discuss it. Notes sans musique, presents two musical works on the Atlantis theme: The opera "Der Kaiser von Atlantis", the music by Viktor Ullmann and the libretto by Peter Kien of which were composed in the concentration camp of Theresienstadt.
The work in which Atlantis is the symbol of a totalitarian empire 36 was finished in January ; ten months later, both the composer and the librettist died in Auschwitz. The "roman semi-autobiographique" "W ou le souvenir d'enfance" by the French-Jewish author Georges Perec, published in VN proudly claims to have been the first to discover in it "une nouvelle adaptation du mythe de l'Atlantide", though it may be regarded as a rather strange and, in my opinion, rather flimsy one.
In one part of the book which consists of two narratives interlockingly juxtaposed , an island called "W", named after its discoverer Wilson 37 and situated at the tip of Tierra del Fuego in the extreme south-west Atlantic, is decribed. On this island -- which at first seems to be an earthly paradise, but then turns more and more into a hell of human brutality --, three kinds of periodic sports games take place, one of them being the "Atlantiades", and this finally establishes for VN the connection with Atlantis: Elle devient [italics by VN] Auschwitz comme l'Atlantide devient le monde de l'Autre et de la dissemblance" Hereafter we move back -- again somewhat unexpectedly 40 -- into the later 19th century and to an author whom VN rightly claims to have had the greatest and longest-lasting impact on modern Atlantologist thinking, Ignatius Donelly, the 13 main "theses" of whose book "Atlantis: The Antediluvian World" first published in he reproduces on pp.
The chapter closes with a short look at a more modern Atlantologist hailing like Donnelly from Minnesota, F. Joseph, who discovered "Atlantis in Wisconsin" as already the title of his book alleges. There follow apart from the end notes to all the chapters on pp. Frost, who also published an article on "The Critias and Minoan Crete" in JHS 33, , and entitled "The lost continent", tries to identify the Minoan civilization of Crete with Plato's Atlantis see above , while the shorter second one, under the simple heading "Atlantis", endorses the hypothesis of the first.
These articles provide an interesting flashlight on the status of the Atlantis discussion in the early 20th century; they are, however, disfigured by a multitude of atrocious spelling mistakes, 41 which must have got into these texts by the process of scanning them for digitalization and insufficient proof-reading: I counted 33 misspellings on nine pages. Their enumeration would take up too much space here, therefore I restrict myself to the names thus affected: The poor handling of English in the appendix is, however, not the only instance of sloppiness in this book.

Even the French language has suffered from this sloppiness: There are also unnecessary repetitions: Proclus together with Iamblichus is twice called a Neo-Pythagorean p. Gerhart Hauptmann's novel "Atlantis" is also mentioned twice with the same additional information on p. One puts the book down with mixed feelings: There is no doubt that VN can write very well and that he really knows the things he is talking about, having occupied himself with them for half a century; on the other hand, one can only wonder why he sometimes prefers vague though often witty allusions to a clear exposition of things one would like to be informed of, 44 and why he not rarely connects topics with each other that clearly do not belong together e.
Frau's Atlantis theory and the Nazis, or Donnelly's influential book and the theosophic occultists. All in all, the book could have been better; it looks like something of a missed opportunity. Vidal-Naquet, L'Atlantide et les nations, in id. Already translated into German Atlantis: With all this, one might feel tempted to rename the book "L'Atlantide et Moi" or perhaps even "Moi et l'Atlantide". VN traces the origin of this hypothesis back to an article in the London Times in , but the idea of a possible Cretan background for Atlantis was for the first time?
As basis for this statement, VN in fact seems to assume that the fictitiousness of Atlantis is nowadays totally uncontested; on p. It may, moreover, well be that VN has "retained" more from my "little book" than he would like to admit: It also has to be said that VN does not take into account other German scholarship on Plato's Atlantis: Bidez' demonstration of that many traits of Plato's Atlantean metropolis probably derive from the big cities of the East Babylon, Susa, Ecbatana , which the Greeks at least knew from reports and sometimes from having gone there themselves. There are other faulty statements as well: To conclude from Tim.
The only model Plato probably had in mind for depicting the war between Athens and Atlantis was the battle of Marathon. Recently, a book by a leading contemporary German "Atlantologist" has also taken VN to task for his overstressing Herodotus as Plato's source Th. Franke, Mit Herodot auf den Spuren von Atlantis: In other respects, this book with its extraordinary claim that studying Herodotus may help us to find out more accurately about Atlantis' real existence has quite a few deficiencies, but its painstaking rebuttal of VN's Herodotus theory is worth reading.

Strabo records Posidonius' opinion as follows: Atlantis] also made it disappear'" Strabon II 3,6 p. VN dates him to the 2nd century BC; apparently he has not taken note that because of a papyrus find Dionysius -- whom VN calls "Denys de Mytilene" -- was plausibly re-dated into the 3rd century BC by J. Rusten, Dionysius Scytobrachion , Opladen , On this, see my "Atlantes und Atlantioi: Von Platon zu Dionysios Skytobrachion," in Philologus , , As my article shows, there are many, many more. In Pliny's addition si Platoni credimus , VN detects "un petit brin de scepticisme" 51 ; but these words may qualify only the reputedly immense size of Atlantis and thus may not express any doubt to Atlantis' former existence as such here is the wording in full: In totum abstulit terras [scil.
