R.P. T. Aylet! VIOLENCE IN JOHANN BEER'S WILLENHA G NOVELS The portraying of acts of violence in German Literature in the century preceding the appearance of Beer's Wiflenhag novels is not unusual. One thinks of the lamentable end of D. Johann Fausten, his brain smeared over his study wall, his body quivering by the dung-heap, or of passages from the Soldaten-Leben section of Moscherosch's Gesichte Phi/anders von Sittewalt: those wishing to discover how to intlict excruciating pain with a bare minimum of naturally occurring material need look no further. In higher tone, more stylised, but no less painful, is the calculated intlicting and resisting of pain in Gryphius's martyr dramas, whilst in the equivalent dramas by Lohenstein some of the violent enactments are almost beyond the pale. None of this violence is gratuitous: all is presented with the best intention on the part of the various authors. For our purposes, however, we need to go back to sixteenthcentury Spain and to examine an act of violence which, if somewhat petty, is nonetheless of considerable literary significance. Leaving Salamanca with his new master, a blind man, Lazarillo de Tormes is invited to place his ear dose to a stone
