I suppose this first person narrative is called 'Mystification' because one of the main characters the Baron Ritzner Von Jung acted so mysteriously that it piued everybody's curiosity as to what he was really like Everyone at the narrator's university becomes excited when they find out that he will be visiting After he has been staying there for a while Von Jung gets into a heated argument at a party with a man named Johan Hermann about the 'duello' which is the study of the rules and art of dueling After the party they continue the debate with a series of letters using the narrator as a medium It turns out that Hermann didn't know much about the topic at all and was really just kind of being a blow hard so it proves what lengths some people will go to to show that they are smarter than othersIf this doesn't sound interesting to you it's because it isn't This is one of the few books on here that has an average rating of less than three stars so it's good to know that I wasn't the only one who disliked it It didn't have the darkness and creepiness that I expect from an Edgar Allan Poe horror story The only redeeming uality is that it had the same elouent prose that I have come to admire in all of Poe's tales He's a great author and I've given him some good reviews but it's definitely hit or miss
