As for the hill, it was about a half-hour's walk away-a walk gladly undertaken. The knoll was called Mount Zion (a quite inappropriate, but surely age-old designa tion) and was good for sledding in winter, though the season seldom found me there. In summer the "peak," with its wreath of shady maples and a bench purchased by the village, offered a breezy spot with a fine view, which I would often enjoy with the Leverkiihn fam ily on Sunday afternoons before supper. And here I feel constrained to mention the following: The frame work of landscape and house where Adrian later established his life as a mature man-that is, when he settled for good with the Schweigestills in Pfeiffering near Waldshut in Upper Bavaria-very strangely resembled, even replicated, the framework of his childhood; or put another way, the setting of his later years curiously imitated that of his youth.
Jonathan Leverkiihn did not send his children to the village common school. His decision, I think, was rooted less in a sense of social superiority than in an earnest desire to provide them a more rigorous education than they could have re ceived sharing lessons with the children of the crofters of Oberweiler. Every afternoon, having finished his official duties, the school teacher-a rather young and delicate man, who never stopped being D O C T O R F A U S T U S afraid of the dog Suso-would come over to give lessons at Buchel, though in winter Thomas fetched him with the sled; and he had already imparted to thirteen-year-old Georg almost all the knowledge the lad would require as a foundation for any further studies, when he took over the elementary education of Adrian, then age eight.
Their opposite is composed of children, the "kids" who trail after them, mocking them, only to turn and run in superstitious panic. In certain eras a certain type of "old woman" has always been immedi ately suspected of witchcraft-the simple result of a disagreeably odd appearance, which probably first required suspicion for it to assume full form and be properly perfected for popular fantasy: short, griz zled, humpbacked, with malevolent runny eyes, hooked nose, thin lips, a cane raised in threat; probably the owner of cats, an owl, a talk ing bird.
