Lamyz: Erzählungen (German Edition) by Heinz Kruschel

By Heinz Kruschel

Zwei junge Menschen, Schüler noch, wollen sich während des Krieges eine Heimat schaffen, eine Geborgenheit, und erleben, wie brüchig allein schon der Wunsch ist.
Der Tod eines Tieres macht einem Kinde klar, dass es etwas gibt, das so stark ist, dass es behütetes Leben beenden kann.
Ein Mensch will zur Quelle vorstoßen und nähert sich damit der Hölle. Abseits vom Trubel der Zeit lebt in der Einsamkeit eine junge Frau und versucht, ihre Sehnsucht zu besiegen.
Der fünfundzwanzigste Schüler seiner Klasse bürdet dem Lehrer ein Leben lang eine Schuld auf, die der gerne auf sich zieht.
Einer, der meint, von seinem Mädchen verstoßen und darum verloren zu sein; der Lehrer, der plötzlich aus der Geborgenheit seiner Kollegen herausfällt; das kleine Mädchen, das der Uralten zu einem wunderbaren Gefühl des Zuhauseseins verhilft; die jungen Freunde des Andersartigen, der für sie immer da battle; das Zigeunerkind, das Heimat sucht und Ratten findet; die Familie Eulenspiegels, die nicht aussterben darf, solange es Menschen gibt; die alte Frau, die das Unausgesprochene und Verheimlichte nicht mit in die Grube nehmen will; der Angeber, der in die Klasse einbricht und sie zerstören will - das sind Geschichten Kruschels, die in diesem Band veröffentlicht werden.
In den Geschichten geht es um die Sehnsucht nach Geborgensein, nach einer Heimat, die dort ist - wie Brecht sagt -, wo der Himmel höher, die Luft würziger wird, wo die Stimmen kräftiger schallen und der Boden sich leichter begeht.
Wie oft aber schwankt der Boden. Wird der Himmel zerrissen. Versagen die Stimmen und verstummen schließlich. Reicht dem Menschen die Luft nicht aus. Immer sind Gefährdungen da.
In Kruschels Erzählungen wollen die Helden das Geborgensein absichern: junge Leute ihre Liebe in einer Turnhalle, die Alte ihre grausamen Erinnerungen, die verstoßene Frau ihre Einsamkeit und die Jungenclique den Andersartigen, den die Erwachsenen ablehnen.
Lebendiges kann nicht vorausberechenbar festgelegt werden, auf Dauer ist kein Glück.
Es geht immer um Freunde und liebe Menschen, ohne die es sich schwer leben lässt. Oder gar nicht, auch davon erzählt eine Geschichte. Nichts erstarrt zu Stein. Auch die schlimmen Störungen gehören zum Leben. Ähnlichkeiten mit lebenden Personen können nur zufällig sein.

Con estos ojos míos (NARRATIVAS) (Spanish Edition) by Francisco Mondino

By Francisco Mondino

Este libro es un homenaje a todas las mujeres y a todos los hombres que padecieron las diferentes formas de represión política durante l. a. casi interminable sucesión de regímenes dictatoriales en Argentina. Y, trascendiendo los límites de lugar y de tiempo, el homenaje se convierte en un alarido firme, terso y penetrante lanzado desde el apego a lo mejor del ser humano, que avanza hasta los fondos del horror y lo deshace en luz.
Con estos ojos míos se abre, pues, como una caja cuyo inside está forrado de l. a. seda más delicada (por insólita y desconcertante que parezca esta imagen para aludir a un episodio de gran complejidad y profundo dolor histórico). Y ello es así, en buena medida, gracias a l. a. delicadeza de cada palabra, a l. a. economía verbal y a los angeles intuición y los angeles sabiduría estéticas inherentes a un escritor de primera línea. Una obra que apunta a lo verdaderamente fundamental.

Littérature et politique (LITTERATURE FRA) (French Edition) by Philippe Sollers

By Philippe Sollers

« l. a. politique fait semblant de maîtriser un monde qui lui échappe, elle va toujours dans le même sens (gauche effondrée, droite en miettes), alors que l. a. littérature, elle, est sans arrêt partout et nulle half. Ouvrez un livre digne de ce nom : los angeles vraie morale est là, avec l’acide ou l’ironie qui conviennent à chaque situation.
Mais je m’aperçois maintenant de ce paradoxe : pour avoir su mobiliser, à travers moi, toute los angeles littérature depuis si longtemps, ce livre est en définitive, au second dangereux où elle semble déconsidérée partout, un vivid éloge de l. a. politique. »
