Hypopigmented In Babies

Gaspard de la nuit, by Aloysius Bertrand

From Faust, to Melmoth and several others, the reappearance of the Devil was in the late eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century one of its biggest booms in the collective memory literature. Almost always characterized naturally, everyday, within the standards of behavior in the Middle Ages, under recurrent and obsessive than the writers of the time.

this presentation is not oblivious to the short work of this author of Italian origin but French adoption. Gaspard is the devil, monk-like, take possession of our author to make a few brief strokes of his world view, under the imposture dissolute buffoon.
