The death of Virgil by Hermann Broch( Book )

342 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in 25 languages and held by 3,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the reign of the Emperor Augustus, and Publius Vergilius Maro, the poet of the Aeneid and Caesar's enchanter, has been summoned to the palace, where he will shortly die. Out of the last hours of Virgil's life and the final stirrings of his consciousness, the Austrian writer Hermann Broch fashioned one of the great works of twentieth-century modernism, a book that embraces an entire world and renders it with an immediacy that is at once sensual and profound. Begun while Broch was imprisoned in a German concentration camp, The Death of Virgil is part historical novel and part prose poem -- and always an intensely musical and immensely evocative meditation on the relation between life and death, the ancient and the modern
The sleepwalkers : a trilogy by Hermann Broch( Book )

138 editions published between 1931 and 2012 in German and English and held by 2,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Broch's influential trilogy examines the "loneliness of the I" stemming from the collapse of any sustaining system of values, with three stories ranging from the aristocracy to the working classes in Germany during the years prior to the First World War
Hugo von Hofmannsthal and his time : the European imagination, 1860-1920 by Hermann Broch( Book )

53 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hofmannsthal è il cardine di questa magistrale opera al tempo stesso critica e narrativa, dove Broch ci conduce lungo traiettorie concentriche nello spazio e nel tempo. Ne risulta il ritratto di un'epoca in cui si sviluppò tumultuosamente <<il moderno>>, e che sembrò culminare nella Vienna dei primi due decenni del Novecento - epoca di immensa ricchezza e al tempo stesso minacciata da un irreprimibile vuoto e dalla corrosione di ogni valore. Broch la ritrae in ogni sua sfaccettatura in Inghilterra, Francia e Germania, prima di concentrare il suo sguardo sull'Austria asburgica, "il paese felice senza speranza", il luogo dove la crisi ha toccato l'acme e l'orpello abbellisce qualcosa di sempre più inconsistente. Soffermandosi su Hofmannsthal, nel cuore del libro, Broch ne ricostruisce la storia familiare, per poi raccontarne l'infanzia e l'adolescenza di ragazzo prodigio, l'isolamento fra i letterati viennesi, la disperazione di fronte alla crisi del linguaggio e la ricerca di nuove vie là dove "la parola non sa più dire la cosa". Una dialettica fra negazione del ruolo di scrittore e urgenza espressiva che appartiene allo stesso Broch, il quale, rispecchiandosi nell'ansia etica di Hofmannsthal, e narrandoci con tanta partecipe sapienza il suo tempo, ci regala anche una profonda e rivelatrice autoanalisi

"Mild and sensitive Richard Hieck endured a quietly difficult childhood in Germany. Raised in humble circumstances, Richard was profoundly influenced by his withdrawn mother and by his father, an enigma whose devotion centered not on his five children but on his mysterious career. From his father, Richard inherited an interest in the night sky, learning to love the constellations and to take comfort in the strength of Orion and the warm radiance of Venus. Richard's shadowy, elusive father also influenced him to pursue studies in mathematics, a field offering Richard the discipline he had craved as a child."
