Die Erzählung, mit der Arno Schmidt sich als Autor etablierte: Die letzten Tagebuchaufzeichnungen eines deutschen Soldaten, dessen Flucht vor der Roten Armee auf einem zerschossenen Viadukt in einem Eisenbahnzug endet, hoch über der Neiße bei Görlitz. Da gibt es kein Vor und Zurück mehr, nur den Sprung in den Tod. In dieser Situation entwirft Schmidt sein düsteres Bild einer Welt, die vom bösartigen Dämon Leviathan geschaffen und regiert wird
Nobodaddy's children by Arno Schmidt( Book )

35 editions published between 1963 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three novellas on Germany from the Nazi era through the postwar years. In Scenes from the Life of a Faun, a civil servant tries to forget the war by researching the exploits of a deserter during the Napoleonic Wars, Brand's Heath is on a returning prisoner-of-war, and in Dark Mirrors the lone survivor of atomic warfare discovers he is not alone, but instead of bringing joy this brings fear. The usual sharply observed detail and sarcastic asides from an erudite writer (1914-1979). By the author of Collected Novellas
Zettels Traum by Arno Schmidt( Book )

80 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vor 40 Jahren veröffentlichte Arno Schmidt sein wichtigstes Werk, "Zettel's Traum": 1334 DIN-A-3-Seiten stark, über zehn Kilogramm schwer und als Faksimile vervielfältigt. Schmidts eigene Befürchtung - "Es wird sich nicht mehr setzen lassen"--Hatte sich bewahrheitet. Vor dem komplexen Layout des dreispaltigen Romans mit seinen zahlreichen Randglossen kapitulierten Setzerei und Verlag. Nun endlich erscheint "Zettel's Traum", das Werk, das Arno Schmidt auf einen Schlag berühmt machte, als gesetztes Buch. Jahrelange Arbeit von Setzern, Editoren und Korrektoren war nötig, um einen lesefreundlichen Schriftsatz herzustellen, ohne den Charakter des "Überbuchs" (Arno Schmidt) zu verändern und seine Eigenheiten zu glätten. Mit dieser Ausgabe gilt es, einen Riesenroman neu zu entdecken: Er erzählt die Liebesgeschichte zwischen dem alternden Schriftsteller Daniel Pagenstecher und der sechzehnjährigen Franziska Jacobi und von Leben und Werk Edgar Allan Poes. Er entwirft eine eigene Literaturtheorie in der Nachfolge Sigmund Freuds und entwickelt wie nebenbei eine neue Rechtschreibung, die zum Beispiel die wahren Eigenschaften eines "Pleas'-see=Rocks" enthüllt. In "Zettel's Traum" finden Arno Schmidts Bemühungen um eine moderne Prosaform und eine angemessene sprachliche Abbildung des menschlichen Bewusstseins ihren vorläufigen Höhepunkt

The first in a four-volume collection of one of the most influential writers of post-World War II Germany, often called the German James Joyce. In Lake Scenery with Pocahontas, he writes: "Think. Don't be content with belief: go further. Once more through the circles of knowledge friends! And foes. Don't interpret: learn and describe. Don't futurize: be. And die without ambitions: you were. At best full of curiosity."
