Read e-book online Arthur Schnitzler: Anatom des Fin de Siècle (German Edition) PDF

By Max Haberich

Arthur Schnitzler wird bis heute als der Dichter literarischer Grazie und unverbindlicher Erotik betrachtet. In Wirklichkeit zeigt sich bereits in seinen frühen Dramen beißende Sozialkritik an der bürgerlichen Doppelmoral seiner Zeit und an der Ausbeutung junger Frauen. Wie kaum ein anderer entlarvte er die wohlhabenden, unbeschäftigten Lebemänner und die Leere vieler zwischenmenschlicher Beziehungen.
Max Haberich hat an der Universität Cambridge über Schnitzler promoviert, hat die Quellen dort und im Literaturarchiv Marbach durchforstet, vor allem auch jene, die in den bisherigen Schnitzler-Biografien noch nicht berücksichtigt werden konnten – etwa die ausführliche Korrespondenz mit seiner Frau Olga. Dadurch ist es Max Haberich möglich, den Jahrhundertautor in einem völlig neuen Licht zu zeigen: als sozialkritischen Autor, der sich über Jahrzehnte mit seiner jüdischen Herkunft auseinandersetzte und mit messerscharfer Beobachtung den stetig zunehmenden Antisemitismus in den Blick nahm.

Get Amor y Exilios (Pack 7 novelas) Ciclo "Amor y exilios": - PDF

By Mois Benarroch

"Una novela en castellano escrita por un autor sefardí siempre es algo unique, pero en este caso, hay algo más. Mucho más: Amor y exilios es una novela escrita por un poeta y eso siempre se nota. Y no sólo en el modo de abordar los sentimientos, o los angeles textura de las situaciones, o los matices humanos que van componiendo una trama de distancias que se amplían y se acercan. l. a. mano del poeta se nota sobre todo en el conocimiento del peso, el valor y l. a. fuerza de cada palabra, componiendo un resultado a l. a. vez duro y sutil.
Si os gustan los libros en los que los angeles trama se centra en l. a. lucha inside de un personaje, como por ejemplo los Puentes de Madison, no os perdáis esta novela de Mois Benarroch. No es una novela romántica aunque se hable de amor, ni una tragedia, aunque trate de lo irreparable. Es otra cosa.
Mois Benarroch es israelí, sefardita, y su modo de escribir en nuestra lengua, porque los angeles obra está originalmente escrita en español, tiene un sabor odd que une ecos antiguos con los angeles vibrante actualidad, l. a. eternidad de los angeles historia que nos cuenta. A veces parece una crónica y a veces una entrevista, a veces un romance en prosa, y a veces una página de sucesos, pero sin perder nunca el pulso narrativo característico del autor.
Amor y exilios habla de personas que se alejan por las circunstancias y que al mismo tiempo se acercan en el sentimiento. De un reencuentro, del imposible olvido, de l. a. lucha a muerte entre el amor y los angeles lealtad, entre los angeles obediencia debida a las circunstancias y los angeles vida actual y las esperanzas, los deseos o las fantasías de los que esperan algo más de los angeles vida.
Amor y exilios es los angeles historia de cómo unas personas que procuraban no pensar en ello se dan cuenta finalmente de que l. a. vida pasa y no son capaces de encontrar el modo de disfrutarla o hacerla plena, porque es tarde ya tanto para el amor como para el olvido. El encuentro no es un encuentro completo, porque el escenario de su memoria ha ido desapareciendo con l. a. emigración y el tiempo. l. a. separación tampoco puede ser completa porque hay personas que están más en nuestro destino que en nuestra biografía.
Quizás los angeles inspiration primary de esta novela, que recorre las calles del imaginario judío en el exilio, sea que nuestros sueños, nuestros anhelos, permanecen emboscados esperando una ocasión para saltar sobre l. a. realidad y desvalijarla.

Y los sueños no perdonan.

Y los sueños tienen una puntería acojonante…"
