"Written in exile while in flight from the Nazis, this dark, bizarre evocation of everyday life under fascism is available for the first time in thirty years. This last book by Ödön von Horváth, one of the 20th-century's great but forgotten writers, is a dark fable about guilt, fate, and the individual conscience. An unnamed narrator in an unnamed country is a schoolteacher with "a safe job with a pension at the end of it." But, when he reprimands a student for a racist comment, he is accused of "sabotage of the Fatherland," and his students revolt. A murder follows, and the teacher must face his role in it, even if it costs him everything. Horváth's book both points to its immediate context--the brutalizing conformity of a totalitarian state, the emptiness of faith in the time of the National Socialists--and beyond, to the struggles of individuals everywhere against societies that offer material security in exchange for the abandonment of one's convictions. Reminiscent of Camus' The Stranger in its themes and its style, Youth Without God portrays a world of individual ruthlessness and collective numbness to the appeals of faith or morality. And yet, a commitment to the truth lifts the teacher and a small band of like-minded students out of this deepening abyss. It's a reminder that such commitment did exist in those troubled times--indeed, they're what led the author to flee Germany, first for Austria, and then France, where he met his death in a tragic accident, just two years after the publication of Youth Without God. Long out of print, this new edition resurrects a bracing and still-disturbing vision."--Publisher's website

The eternal philistine : an edifying novel in three parts by Ödön von Horváth( Book )

83 editions published between 1930 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important, never-before-translated work by a major yet overlooked mid-20th century writer, is a brutally funny look at the human comedy on the eve of Europe's descent into Fascism. A classic, prescient work of pre-WWII literature by a major Weimar author about a young man who is a failed used car salesman. In search of another means to live the high life, he decides to travel by train from Berlin to Madrid to see the World's Fair--and hopefully meet a beautiful, rich woman who will provide for his every whim. It's a highly stylized, and at times raucously funny, tale of the almost-absurd: a dark and satiric look at Europeans, and especially Germans, from all levels of society on the brink of cataclysmic Fascism. And as such, it is, perhaps, the most significant work of this important writer's oeuvre. Von Horváth's work fearlessly tried to warn of the dangers of rising fascism and the militarization of Europe (which led to his having to flee Germany and Austria successively). His characters here are adrift in their acquisitive desires, making them vulnerable to the manipulations and propaganda of the State--and making this novel brilliantly foresightful in its understanding of politics and human nature at a crucial point in modern European history"--

Figaro divorce : comédie en trois actes by Ödön von Horváth( Book )

25 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Against the backdrop of a classic plot, Ödön von Horváths comedy Figaro Gets a Divorce (written between 1934 and 1936) treats highly explosive topics of his time such as revolution and emigration. This text edition documents the complete creation process of the play, which is closely interwoven with the creation process of Don Juan Comes Back from the War. The differences between the "original version" in 13 scenes and the final version in 9 scenes show exemplarily how difficult it was for Horváth to comment on the current political developments directly.Nicole Streitler, Literaturarchiv der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek, Wien, Österreich
