C.G.Jung entdeckte Meyrink als eine Persönlichkeit, die aus tiefer visionärer Quelle schöpfte wie Dante, Nietzsche, Wagner... „ Der Wert und die Wucht", fand er, „liegen auf der Ungeheuerlichkeit des Erlebnisses, das fremd und kalt oder bedeutend und erhaben aus zeitlosen Tiefen auftaucht, einerseits schillernd, dämonisch-grotesker Art,... andererseits eine Offenbarung, deren Höhen und Tiefen zu ergründen, menschliche Ahnung kaum genügt."
Dr. Eduard Frank
