Le Fort wrote the book at the tail-end of the Weimar era, in a Germany being roiled from both the right and the left, National Socialists and Communists. Le Fort's literary style is often referred to as "sacramental realism" or the literary portrayal of dynamic transformations of a transcendent nature, rather than conventional material realism. These depicted transformations reveal an outward conduct that is an expression of a living faith, which in turn holds the potential to resonate and ripple throughout the wider world.
