triangle song – searching for Kaspar Hauser

Franconia is located in northern Bavaria. I discovered the place while reading Oskar Panizza, a 19th century German writer.

In L’auberge de la Trinité (1893), he describes ever-wandering characters in a misty and hostile countryside governed by inquisitors.

It is in that Land also, in Nuremberg, that appeared in 1826, coming from nowhere, a strange teenager called Kaspar Hauser. Still today historians and story-tellers continue to write and discuss about the subject.

After being imprisoned and totally isolated from the rest of the world for twelve years, how can man consider the human-beings, the animals, mother nature and other things?

“Those whose imagination is stronger than their reason should never travel alone,” wrote Oskar Panizza.

I recently went to Franconia to walk on the steps of Kaspar Hauser and try to capture Panizza’s demons.
