Das menschliche Gehirn kennt viele Wege sich einzurichten, im Alltag und im Fernsehsessel. Wie kein anderes ist es dazu fähig, aus neuen Erfahrungen Erinnerungen zu machen und Können zu erwerben. Dafür zahlen wir jedoch den Preis, dass uns vieles zur Wiederholung wird. Kulturelle Ereignisse können so Neuheitswert haben, aber auch als Alltagsgedudel durch die Finger des Gedächtnisses rinnen, und es gibt kein Argument dafür, dass das eine oder das andere "gehirngerechter" ist.

Saltus escaped the kind of moral opprobrium visited on Wilde for two reasons: he was not homosexual, and he reserved his most outrageous material for history rather than ﬁction. As Levin puts it: “Under the guise of historical documentation it was possible to discuss matters still too delicate for ﬁctional handling” (Levin, 1073). Despite Levin’s balanced and generally positive critique, Saltus disappeared almost immediately from subsequent literary histories of the period. 9 Saltus’s disappearance from the canon of American letters may be attributable to the variety of his production.
The paradox may hold, in part, in the case of Edgar Saltus, though his eclipse from American letters had already begun by the time he shifted his literary career to journalism. But the general contradiction holds: Saltus, like others, tried to popularize a culture in the United States that ran completely counter to the cultural interests of most Americans. Instead of local color, like Stuart Merrill he provided French pastels; instead of Emersonian optimism and self-reliance, he counseled Schopenhauerian pessimism and self-annihilation; instead of genteel realism and moral assurances, his writing conveyed artiﬁciality, nihilism, and decadence.
Not one of [these] is strictly American” (93–94). The Saltus efﬂorescence of the early 1920s aside, Pollard’s treatment of Saltus as an artist of excess, combined with Mencken’s dismissal of Saltus as the hollow man of the old century, sets the tone for future critical assessments. ”6 While acknowledging that Saltus held some appeal in the 1920s “for other exquisites” who found “his fantastically overstylized books interesting,” Kazin follows the cynical Mencken in his judgment of Saltus’s lack of substance, the absence of a “moral pattern”: “Saltus was something more than a decadent; he was so completely without a core that his fashionable skepticism now seems almost pathological” (66).
