Orpheus in Paris : Offenbach and the Paris of his time by Siegfried Kracauer( Book )

121 editions published between 1933 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 1,364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème couverture indique : "La biographie d'Offenbach est avant tout celle d'une époque : telle est la conviction qui sous-tend le propos de Siegfried Kracauer dans un ouvrage devenu classique depuis sa première parution en 1937. Protagoniste de ces pages adminrables, autant que le musicien et son cercle, autant que l'opérette elle-même, forme clef d'une nouvelle sensibilité et phénomène culturel unique : la société du Second Empire dans son ensemble, avec sa noblesse divisée, son aristocratie financière, sa population d'artistes, de bohémines, de journalistes et de lorettes, l'émergence des masses, l'importance prise par les salons, théâtres, cafés et passages, la célébration mercantile des expositions culturelles. Sur ce fond, vient se détacher la personnalité d'Offenbach, personnage humoral et contradictoire, dont Kracauer analyse, en même temps que les espoirs et les triomphes, la conscience malheureuse d'intellectuel d'exil : reflet de bien d'autres anxiétés que l'histoire ne devait que trop vérifier. Précédant les textes et les projets de Walter Benjamin, Jacques Offenbach ou le secret du Second Empire fut l'un des premiers ouvrages à explorer la typologie du flâneur et de l'homme des boulevards, amorçant une réfléxion dont nous n'avons pas fini d'épuiser les richesses"

The mass ornament : Weimar essays by Siegfried Kracauer( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried Kracauer was one of the twentieth century's most brilliant cultural critics, a daring and prolific scholar, and an incisive theorist of film. In this volume his finest writings on modern society make their long-awaited appearance in English. This book is a celebration of the masses--their tastes, amusements, and everyday lives. Taking up themes of modernity, such as isolation and alienation, urban culture, and the relation between the group and the individual, Kracauer explores a kaleidoscope of topics: shopping arcades, the cinema, bestsellers and their readers, photography, dance, hotel lobbies, Kafka, the Bible, and boredom. For Kracauer, the most revelatory facets of modern life in the West lie on the surface, in the ephemeral and the marginal. Of special fascination to him is the United States, where he eventually settled after fleeing Germany and whose culture he sees as defined almost exclusively by "the ostentatious display of surface." With these essays, written in the 1920s and early 1930s and edited by the author in 1963, Kracauer was the first to demonstrate that studying the everyday world of the masses can bring great rewards. The Mass Ornament today remains a refreshing tribute to popular culture, and its impressively interdisciplinary essays continue to shed light not only on Kracauer's later work but also on the ideas of the Frankfurt School, the genealogy of film theory and cultural studies, Weimar cultural politics, and, not least, the exigencies of intellectual exile. In his introduction, Thomas Levin situates Kracauer in a turbulent age, illuminates the forces that influenced him--including his friendships with Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, and other Weimar intellectuals--and provides the context necessary for understanding his ideas. Until now, Kracauer has been known primarily for his writings on the cinema. This volume brings us the full scope of his gifts as one of the most wide-ranging and penetrating interpreters of modern life. --Publisher description

22 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein "Drückeberger" als Held: Ginster ist 25, als der Erste Weltkrieg ausbricht, ein begabter Frankfurter Architekt. Der patriotischen Begeisterung seiner Zeitgenossen steht er skeptisch gegenüber, und so verwendet er einige Mühe darauf, sich immer wieder vom Kriegsdienst zurückstellen zu lassen - das Vaterland braucht seine Architekten schließlich nicht an der Front, sondern zu Hause, wo etwa Granatfabriken und Ehrenfriedhöfe für die gefallenen Soldaten zu planen sind. Doch dann ereilt auch Ginster der Gestellungsbefehl. Weit weg von den Schlachtfeldern lernt er, mit militärischer Präzision ein Bett zu bauen, zu schießen und "gegen die Feinde Kartoffeln zu schälen". Und es festigt sich in ihm die Überzeugung, dass all diese Übungen nicht dem Krieg dienen, sondern der ganze Krieg ein Vorwand für die Übungen ist. Im Frankfurt des Ersten Weltkriegs spielt dieser Roman, der den literarischen Ruhm seines Autors begründete. Es ist das faszinierende Porträt eines Mannes, dessen Haltung zur Welt und ihren Widersprüchen oft mit Chaplin und Keaton verglichen worden ist
