Kubin’s "The Other Side"
The Novel written in metaphorical and symbolic language is a sort of autobiographic novel. The narrator, Kubin himself decides, along with his wife to move to “Pearl”, the capital of a built in Central Asia, dream realm, pull, whose daily life of Ancient (old buildings, mills, homes, disreputable bars, towers, cafes), a Kafkaesque bureaucratic hierarchy and emotional discord (hysteria, anxiety, disorientation, chaos and obsessions) is controlled, and in which there is neither technical nor cultural progress. The inhabitants of the city, shrouded by dense fog, are sensitive dreamer, subject only to the logic of the dream world. Patera, the ruler of the dream realm is left to decay, so the chaos is increasing.

Kubin’s novel exerted a decisive influence on writers like Franz Kafka, Gustav Meyrink and Ernst Jünger.
It is probably also in the sense Kubin, if we interpret the novel as so many of his prints as a symbol of the fatalistic view of things, but even he calls himself a fatalist.
In the novel "The Other Side" and also in the drawings noted Ernst Jünger a peculiarity of the composition, which he calls "unrelated simultaneity," a blunt isolation of the individuals who are in the world such as in a number of prison cells next to each other act similarity to Georg Trakl.
