Download e-book for kindle: Imre Kertész: Leben und Werk (German Edition) by Irene Heidelberger-Leonard

By Irene Heidelberger-Leonard

Die erste Werkbiographie über den großen ungarischen Schriftsteller.

Lange vor der Niederschrift seines weltberühmten »Romans eines Schicksallosen" hat Imre Kertész einen kurzen textual content geschrieben, der sich wie eine Grundschrift seines Werkes liest: In »Ich, der Henker", einem lange Zeit unpublizierten Textfragment aus den 50er Jahren, schreibt der Holocaust-Überlebende nicht, wie zu erwarten wäre, aus der Perspektive des Opfers, sondern aus der des Täters: Ein Massenmörder legt Rechenschaft ab, zeichnet sich selbst als Rädchen im Getriebe, als Henker wider Willen und verwischt die Grenzen zwischen Täter und Opfer.
Bereits in diesem frühen textual content zeigt sich Kertész` Überzeugung, dass Opfer und Täter im Totalitarismus austauschbar geworden sind. Sie fügen sich beide in ihre »Schicksallosigkeit", ihren Verlust der Persönlichkeit. Ein Überlebender kann laut Kertész nicht ohne Schuld sein - nur die Toten sind frei von Schuld.
Irene Heidelberger-Leonard legt erstmalig eine Werkbiographie dieses Ausnahme-Schriftstellers vor. Sie zeigt, wie eng Kertész` Leben mit seinem Werk verknüpft ist, aber auch wie groß die Freiheiten sind, mit denen er sein Leben in der Literatur gestaltet: Das Schreiben seiner Lebensgeschichte ist für ihn eine existentielle Notwendigkeit, es ist die einzige Möglichkeit, aus der Passivität der Opferrolle auszubrechen und seine Individualität zurückzugewinnen.
Irene Heidelberger-Leonard zeichnet ein feinsinniges Porträt des Nobelpreisträgers, der die Selbsterforschung und deren ästhetische Verwandlung zu seinem Lebensinhalt gemacht hat.

On its first book, the reviewer of Books saw: "It is very unlikely to not recognize this painter as author. As an entire, he . . . communicates the snobbishness, self-adoration, comedy, seriousness, fanaticism, in brief the concept that of existence and the entire photograph of himself he units out to portray."

His tantalizing bankruptcy titles and headnotes — between them "Intra-Uterine Memories," "Apprenticeship to Glory," "Permanent Expulsion from the varsity of good Arts," "Dandyism and Prison," "I am Disowned by way of my Family," "My Participation and my place within the Surrealist Revolution," and "Discovery of the equipment for Photographing idea" — purely trace on the compelling revelations to come.

For somebody drawn to 20th-century paintings and certainly one of its so much proficient and charismatic figures, The mystery lifetime of Salvador Dalí is needs to reading.
