Ernst Juenger is the author of Die Marmorklippen (On the Marble Cliffs)—a novel published inside Germany in 1939 that was unmistakably directed against the regime of Adolf Hitler. Before that time, however, he had been perhaps the most influential talent among those who paved the way for an acceptance of Nazism among the German intelligentsia. And, once the war had been won, Juenger emerged as the most authoritative voice among the writers of the “inner emigration,” that is, those who claimed to have spiritually emigrated from Hitler's Germany without having done so in fact. He also published two major works which, German critics have agreed, are among the most important products of their post-war literature: Strahlungen (1949) and Heliopolis (1949). The first provides an eerie glimpse into the fantastic, hothouse world of the anti-Nazi Prussian High Command in France, while the second is a massive allegorical novel of the future.
