New PDF release: Berthold Auerbach: Briefe an seinen Freund Jakob Auerbach:

By Berthold Auerbach,Hans Otto Horch

< !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

Die Briefe Berthold Auerbachs an Jakob Auerbach gehören zu den wichtigsten Quellen der deutsch-jüdischen Literatur. In einem Zeitraum von mehr als 50 Jahren (1830–1882) vertraut der Autor seinem religionspädagogisch tätigen Freund nicht nur Ereignisse seines privaten Lebens an, das unauflöslich mit der Emanzipationsproblematik der Juden verbunden ist, sondern entwirft ein plastisches Bild der literarischen und politisch-liberalen Netzwerke, in denen ihm wegen seines Judentums freilich keine unumstrittene place eingeräumt wird. Die Erstausgabe der Briefe, 1884 herausgegeben vom Adressaten und mit einer Einleitung von Friedrich Spielhagen versehen, wird mit dieser variation erstmalig neu aufgelegt. Die mit einem Kommentar sowie Personen- und Sachindicesversehene Neuausgabe in three Teilbänden folgt dem neuerlichen Interesse am Briefwechsel und seinem Autor.

Read e-book online Vermintes Echo (German Edition) PDF

By Robert Kleindienst

Robert Kleindienst setzt in Vermintes Echo Bruchstücke zusammen, die sich quer durch das 20. Jahrhundert ziehen: Gródek, Medizinische Experimente, Eichmannprozess, entwurzelte Kindheit. Der Blick des Autors richtet sich dabei wie aus der Vogelperspektive auf seine Protagonisten, gleich einem Objektiv, das immer näher heranzoomt, bis das Bild im Schwarz endet. Es sind unruhige Sequenzen mit beklemmenden Momenten und Bezügen zu Hofmannsthal, Kafka, Trakl oder Celan. Eine komplexe Komposition physischer und psychischer Grenzgänge.

„Zu erzählen: Von einem, der an Bord ging, ohne Kohle, seine Heimat im Arm. Die andern am Schiff, wie er, mit gebrochenem Arm. Gedanken, terrestrisch, aber das Schaukeln – übermächtig, der Aufbruch, die Gischt. Abfahrt bei Nacht. Leichte, bewegte See. Wir sehen ihn an Deck stehen, wie er zurückblickt auf die Küste, mit jedem Atemzug dem Verschwinden näher. Der Himmel: Frei und unbedeckt, die freien Sterne. Sternbilder. Rauch. Rauchstern und Atem, verengter Blick. Er zählt die Sterne und zählt, und es steigen die Wellen und steigen, kopfhoch. Hält er den Blick. Geradeaus, immer geradeaus. Gerichtet. Und wieder ein Stern, der glänzt und vergangen ist.“
