He passed a small anteroom, meanly furnished, and stood in a bedchamber of meagre and sordid discomfort. Stretched on the bed, and writhing in pain, lay an old man; a single candle lit the room, and threw its feeble ray over the furrowed and death-like face of the sick person.
No attendant was by; he seemed left alone, to breathe his last. Sir, I am poor, but I can pay you well. There is the basin, all I have taken these six hours.
I had scarce drunk it ere these pains began. The stranger looked at the basin; some portion of the contents was yet left there.
Who else should? I have no servant,—none! I am poor, very poor, sir. But no! The old man was fast sinking under the rapid effects of poison.
The stranger repaired to his own apartments, and returned in a few moments with some preparation that had the instant result of an antidote.
The pain ceased, the blue and livid colour receded from the lips; the old man fell into a profound sleep. The stranger drew the curtains round the bed, took up the light, and inspected the apartment.
The walls of both rooms were hung with drawings of masterly excellence. A portfolio was filled with sketches of equal skill,—but these last were mostly subjects that appalled the eye and revolted the taste: they displayed the human figure in every variety of suffering,—the rack, the wheel, the gibbet; all that cruelty has invented to sharpen the pangs of death seemed yet more dreadful from the passionate gusto and earnest force of the designer.
Several shelves were filled with books; these were almost entirely the works of the philosophers of the time,—the philosophers of the material school, especially the Encyclopedistes, whom Robespierre afterwards so singularly attacked when the coward deemed it unsafe to leave his reign without a God.
This sect the Encyclopaedists propagate with much zeal the doctrine of materialism, which prevails among the great and the wits; we owe to it partly that kind of practical philosophy which, reducing Egotism to a system, looks upon society as a war of cunning; success the rule of right and wrong, honesty as an affair of taste or decency: and the world as the patrimony of clever scoundrels.
A volume lay on a table,—it was one of Voltaire, and the page was opened at his argumentative assertion of the existence of the Supreme Being.
The clock struck two, when the sound of steps was heard without. The stranger silently seated himself on the farther side of the bed, and its drapery screened him, as he sat, from the eyes of a man who now entered on tiptoe; it was the same person who had passed him on the stairs.
The new-comer took up the candle and approached the bed. The new-comer drew back, and a grim smile passed over his face: he replaced the candle on the table, opened the bureau with a key which he took from his pocket, and loaded himself with several rouleaus of gold that he found in the drawers.
At this time the old man began to wake. He stirred, he looked up; he turned his eyes towards the light now waning in its socket; he saw the robber at his work; he sat erect for an instant, as if transfixed, more even by astonishment than terror.
At last he sprang from his bed. Thou—thou—thou, for whom I toiled and starved! Rob, plunder me if thou wilt, but do not say thou couldst murder one who only lived for thee!
There, there, take the gold; I hoarded it but for thee. The robber looked at him with a hard disdain. Thou wert an orphan,—an outcast. I nurtured, nursed, adopted thee as my son.
If men call me a miser, it was but that none might despise thee, my heir, because Nature has stunted and deformed thee, when I was no more.
Thou wouldst have had all when I was dead. Couldst thou not spare me a few months or days,—nothing to thy youth, all that is left to my age? What have I done to thee?
Thy God! Hast thou not told me, from my childhood, that there is NO God? Hast thou not fed me on philosophy? Hideous and misshapen, mankind jeer at me as I pass the streets.
What hast thou done to me? Thou hast taken away from me, who am the scoff of this world, the hopes of another! Is there no other life? Well, then, I want thy gold, that at least I may hasten to make the best of this!
Thou knowest there is no God! Mark me; I have prepared all to fly. See,—I have my passport; my horses wait without; relays are ordered.
I have thy gold. He cowered before the savage. But by whom and what, old man? I cannot believe thee, if thou believest not in any God!
Ha, ha! Another moment and those murderous fingers would have strangled their prey. But between the assassin and his victim rose a form that seemed almost to both a visitor from the world that both denied,—stately with majestic strength, glorious with awful beauty.
The ruffian recoiled, looked, trembled, and then turned and fled from the chamber. The old man fell again to the ground insensible. When he again saw the old man the next day, the stranger found him calm, and surprisingly recovered from the scene and sufferings of the night.
He expressed his gratitude to his preserver with tearful fervour, and stated that he had already sent for a relation who would make arrangements for his future safety and mode of life.
It seems that in earlier life he had quarrelled with his relations,—from a difference in opinions of belief. Rejecting all religion as a fable, he yet cultivated feelings that inclined him—for though his intellect was weak, his dispositions were good—to that false and exaggerated sensibility which its dupes so often mistake for benevolence.
He had no children; he resolved to adopt an enfant du peuple. In this outcast he not only loved a son, he loved a theory! He brought him up most philosophically.
The boy showed talents, especially in art. It was reserved for Robespierre hereafter to make the sanguinary painter believe in the Etre Supreme.
The boy was early sensible of his ugliness, which was almost preternatural. His benefactor found it in vain to reconcile him to the malice of Nature by his philosophical aphorisms; but when he pointed out to him that in this world money, like charity, covers a multitude of defects, the boy listened eagerly and was consoled.
Verily, he had met with his reward. I, who never ceased to inculcate the beauty of virtue? Explain yourself. The old man moved uneasily, and was about to reply, when the relative he had sent for—and who, a native of Nancy, happened to be at Paris at the time—entered the room.
He was a man somewhat past thirty, and of a dry, saturnine, meagre countenance, restless eyes, and compressed lips. You are bred to regard human life with contempt.
I lament more than any one the severity of our code. I think the state never should take away life,—no, not even the life of a murderer.
I agree with that young statesman,—Maximilien Robespierre,—that the executioner is the invention of the tyrant. My very attachment to our advancing revolution is, that it must sweep away this legal butchery.
The lawyer paused, out of breath. The stranger regarded him fixedly and turned pale. Why did I not seek to know you before?
You admire the Revolution;—you, equally with me, detest the barbarity of kings and the fraud of priests?
Was Socrates to blame if Alcibiades was an adulterer and a traitor? But Socrates had also a Plato; henceforth you shall be a Plato to me.
You hear him? But the latter was at the threshold. Who shall argue with the most stubborn of all bigotries,—the fanaticism of unbelief?
Well, you have a right. Sir, we shall meet again. He hastened to his chamber; he passed the day and the night alone, and in studies, no matter of what nature,—they served to increase his gloom.
What could ever connect his fate with Rene Dumas, or the fugitive assassin? He leaves France behind. Back, O Italy, to thy majestic wrecks!
On the Alps his soul breathes the free air once more. Free air! But we, reader, we too escape from these scenes of false wisdom clothing godless crime.
Away, once more. Away, to the loftier realm where the pure dwellers are. Unpolluted by the Actual, the Ideal lives only with Art and Beauty.
O Musician! Thou art reinstalled at thy stately desk,—thy faithful barbiton has its share in the triumph. It is thy masterpiece which fills thy ear; it is thy daughter who fills the scene,—the music, the actress, so united, that applause to one is applause to both.
They make way for thee, at the orchestra,—they no longer jeer and wink, when, with a fierce fondness, thou dost caress thy Familiar, that plains, and wails, and chides, and growls, under thy remorseless hand.
They understand now how irregular is ever the symmetry of real genius. The inequalities in its surface make the moon luminous to man. Giovanni Paisiello, Maestro di Capella, if thy gentle soul could know envy, thou must sicken to see thy Elfrida and thy Pirro laid aside, and all Naples turned fanatic to the Siren, at whose measures shook querulously thy gentle head!
But thou, Paisiello, calm in the long prosperity of fame, knowest that the New will have its day, and comfortest thyself that the Elfrida and the Pirro will live forever.
Perhaps a mistake, but it is by such mistakes that true genius conquers envy. The audience now would give their ears for those variations and flights they were once wont to hiss.
Is not this common? But let him sit down and compose himself. He sees no improvement in variations THEN! Every man can control his fiddle when it is his own work with which its vagaries would play the devil.
And Viola is the idol, the theme of Naples. She is the spoiled sultana of the boards. To spoil her acting may be easy enough,—shall they spoil her nature?
No, I think not. There, at home, she is still good and simple; and there, under the awning by the doorway,—there she still sits, divinely musing.
How often, crook-trunked tree, she looks to thy green boughs; how often, like thee, in her dreams, and fancies, does she struggle for the light,—not the light of the stage-lamps.
Pooh, child! A farthing candle is more convenient for household purposes than the stars. Weeks passed, and the stranger did not reappear; months had passed, and his prophecy of sorrow was not yet fulfilled.
One evening Pisani was taken ill. His success had brought on the long-neglected composer pressing applications for concerti and sonata, adapted to his more peculiar science on the violin.
He had been employed for some weeks, day and night, on a piece in which he hoped to excel himself. He took, as usual, one of those seemingly impracticable subjects which it was his pride to subject to the expressive powers of his art,—the terrible legend connected with the transformation of Philomel.
The pantomime of sound opened with the gay merriment of a feast. The monarch of Thrace is at his banquet; a sudden discord brays through the joyous notes,—the string seems to screech with horror.
The king learns the murder of his son by the hands of the avenging sisters. Swift rage the chords, through the passions of fear, of horror, of fury, and dismay.
The father pursues the sisters. The transformation is completed; and Philomel, now the nightingale, pours from the myrtle-bough the full, liquid, subduing notes that are to tell evermore to the world the history of her woes and wrongs.
Now, it was in the midst of this complicated and difficult attempt that the health of the over-tasked musician, excited alike by past triumph and new ambition, suddenly gave way.

Below is the brief synopsis of the book with some side notes. Unfortunately, the novel is written in a very prosaic Victorian English, a style, which modern readers might not have the time or the patience to read.
I would love to see a movie or a screenplay made of this story if it kept the original theme, message and esoteric tradition.
Bulwer-Lytton, was a English aristocrat and Earl of Knebsworth. Knebsworth remained open to the public. He was a pioneer historical novelist, and far Below is the brief synopsis of the book with some side notes.
He was a pioneer historical novelist, and far more meticulous in his research and accurate in his facts than his contemporaries. The author was a member of the English Rosicrucian society, founded in by Robert Wenworth Little.
This explains why he was so very knowledgeable in what we now call the Western Esoteric Tradition, and it is said that the famous French occultist Eliphas Levi came to England to visit him, although the tradition of secrecy that veiled these matters in those day was such that it is difficult to ascertain the cause of their meeting or what may have happened as a consequence.
The introductory chapter to the story of Zanoni recounts how the narrator, in his younger days, had been keen to become acquainted with the true origin and tenets of the Rosicrucian order.
In his search he visited an obscure bookshop in Covent Garden, where he met an old man who hinted that he might well enlighten him should they happen to meet again.
Indeed they do meet very shortly afterwards at the foot of Highgate Hill and the old man invites the young man to his house, in a secluded part of Highgate overlooking London, and instructs him in secret esoteric philosophy.
He tells that the Rosicrucian order still exist, but pursue their profound researches into natural science and occult philosophy in secrecy.
Yet however respectable and virtuous they might be, and ardent in the Christian faith, they are but a branch of another more transcendent, powerful and illustrious Order that derives from Plato, Pythagoras and Apollonius of Tyana.
On the death of the old man he bequeaths to the narrator a manuscript in cipher that turns out to be the text of the novel "Zanoni".
It is described by its anonymous author as a romance and yet not a romance. The old man, referring to the works of Plato, has already explained that there are four stages for the soul in its return to its first state of happiness in God.
The first is music, the second mysticism, the third prophecy, and the fourth love. And it is upon this outline plan that the story of Zanoni is constructed.
Zanoni divides into seven parts, which are entitled: 1. The Musician, 2. Art, Love and Wonder, 3. Theurgia, 4.
The Dweller of the Threshold, 5. The Effects of the Elixir, 6. Superstition Deserting Faith, 7. The Reign of Terror.
This last section is an evocation of the French Revolution, along with Bulwer-Lytton's close adherence to fact, in which the occult adept Zanoni goes voluntarily to his sacrificial death in an attempt to save the innocent from the guillotine.
He was born a star and fire worshipper in ancient Chaldea, and so is some years old, his occult powers having enabled him to avoid the ravages of time He is one of only two members of a great ancient esoteric Order who survive.
The other initiate is named Mejnour and he, choosing a different path from Zanoni, may presumably still be living to this day.
Whilst all this may sound fantastic, the esoteric status of Zanoni and Mejnour is much akin to that which is accorded by latter day occultists to Masters of the Wisdom, and what Lytton has to say about these Adepts predates by some forty years the celebrated Mahatmas of Madame Blavatsky or the Secret Chiefs of the Golden Dawn.
The heroine of the novel is Viola, a young Neapolitan girl, ignorant and uneducated but a supremely gifted singer. Its hero Zanoni, the master of mystic and prophetic arts, loves her for her youth, innocence and musical gifts, although his co-initiate Mejnour remains wedded to the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake - looking upon human love as a weakness rather than a strength.
Having helped Viola to become a star of the Neapolitan opera, Zanoni, although he loves her, tries to divert her natural love for him by encouraging her courtship by a young Englishman, Glyndon.
His grounds for this are that he, being virtually an immortal, cannot realistically form a lasting loving relationship with a young girl who will grow old wither and die in the natural course of life, whilst he himself remains relatively unaffected by the passage of time.
The young Englishman Glyndon aborts his selfless plans however, an amateur artist of some talent but of solid respectable middle class stock, who cannot come to terms with taking a poor Italian girl for wife.
How would she fit in on the English social scene? How would she be received by his parents or by his business associates? He yearns instead after the mysterious powers of Mejnour and Zanoni.
After some heart searching by all concerned Glyndon is eventually accepted for initiatory instruction under the adept Mejnour at a hidden temple in the mountains.
In the meantime Zanoni marries Viola, hoping that perhaps he may be able to instruct her sufficiently in his secret sciences so that she too may avoid the march of time.
Both these schemes founder in the test of hard reality and human fallibility. Glyndon, although spurred on in his mystic quest by having an alchemist as a distant ancestor, proves himself to be lacking in the qualities required of an initiate.
The Dweller on the Threshold proves too much for him. He cannot resist the lure of idle curiosity or the temptations of the flesh - tests that have been arranged by Mejnour.
He is accordingly rejected and returned to the world, but having evoked the wind he reaps the whirlwind, and undergoes a slow moral degeneration.
This manifests at first as drunken self-indulgence and social ineptitude, and passes in the end to lust and betrayal. Viola, on the other hand, is a simple, provincial Neapolitan girl.
The local priest, who condemns her involvement with a man who practices the occult arts, disastrously influences her. Despite the exemplary conduct of her husband she begins to fear his knowledge and his background, and refuses all thought of him teaching her any of his esoteric powers.
By force of circumstances she ends up in Paris at the time of the worst excesses of the Revolution. Here, partly through the treacherous act of Glyndon, she is denounced and condemned to the guillotine.
Zanoni arrives and, in a desperate attempt to save her, sacrifices his own life in the process but goes to his death with a new realisation of the meaning of human life, and above all of human death.

This is all depicted in Zanoni himself who at the time of Babylon abandoned all human passions to become immortal but during the French Revolution, to become human again, he falls in love and dies in the guillotine.
The name Zanoni is derived from the Chaldean root zan , meaning "sun", and the chief character is endowed with solar attributes.
From the viewpoint of Platonism and Neo-Platonism , Zanoni evokes the themes of the four types of divine madness covered in Plato 's Phaedrus : These are prophetic , initiatic , poetic and erotic madness.
These four threads are interwoven through the entire fabric of the work, creating an atmosphere of divine madness. Even Zanoni's attempt to become human again becomes an apotheosis with his ultimate sacrifice.
According to occult author C. Nelson Stewart, Bulwer-Lytton is well-versed in Rosicrucian and occult lore, all of which he brings to bear on his novel Zanoni ; he also demonstrates a profound knowledge of Astrology in his Disraeli prediction: " He will die, whether in or out of office, in an exceptionally high position, greatly lamented, and surrounded to the end by all the magnificent planetary influences of a propitious Jupiter.
Speaking to Glyndon, Mejnour says of the Guardian, " Hidden categories: Articles with short description Short description is different from Wikidata Coordinates on Wikidata AC with 0 elements All stub articles.
