Alamut PDF Novel ( 1938) by Vladimir Bartol



Alamut is a novel by Vladimir Bartol, first published in 1938 in Slovenia, dealing with the story of Hassan-i Sabbah and the Hashshashin, and named after their Alamut fortress.

Bartol first started to conceive the novel in the early 1930s, when he lived in Paris. In the French capital, he met with the Slovene literary critic Josip Vidmar, who introduced him to the story of Hassan-i Sabbah. A further stimulation for the novel came from the assassination of Alexander I of Yugoslavia perpetrated by Croatian and Bulgarian radical nationalists, on the alleged commission of the Italian Fascist government. When it was originally published, the novel was sarcastically dedicated to Mussolini.

The maxim of the novel is "Nothing is an absolute reality, all is permitted".
