The new sufferings of young W. : a novel by Ulrich Plenzdorf( Book )

9 editions published between 1979 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most talked-about works ever published in the German Democratic Republic! This innovative novel by an East German writer is a worthy companion to the classic it parodies and parallels: Goethe's The Sufferings of Young Werther. Goethe and J. D. Salinger were the two greatest influences on Edgar Wibeau, "Young W." Edgar is a 17-year-old with the frustrations of teenagers all over the world, living with the added pressures of an East-bloc state. A model all-GDR boy, the son of a factory director, he suddenly drops out. But not from socialism per se--just from conformity, picky regulations, and official disapproval of jeans, the blues, and girls. Hiding out, he finds and devours an old copy of The Sufferings of Young Werther. From then on he wards off reality with Goethe texts, and young Wibeau's fate is superimposed on that of Werther like a transparent overlay

Ein klärender Beitrag zum deutsch-deutschen Dialog: Acht Autorinnen und Autoren inklusive ein Zeichner, zur Hauptsache Kinder der DDR, erzählen über ihre ehemalige Heimat. In durchaus persönlichem Ton, aber mit sachlicher Absicht, informieren sie über die Geschichte der Teilung, eine Jugend in Templin, die Spitzeleien der Stasi, die Arbeitssituation in der Planwirtschaft, die Mauer als Traumfabrik sowie schliesslich über die sogenannte Wende. Das ergibt einen interessanten, höchst informativen, unaufdringlichen, aber auch persönlich anrührenden Mix, dessen Lektüre, die wohl so manches Vorurteil auflösen könnte, man allen Wessies wärmstens empfehlen kann. Ab 14 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer

The new sorrows of young W. by Ulrich Plenzdorf( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edgar Wibeau, seventeen years old, has died on Christmas Eve in an unfortunate accident involving electricity. His father, who left the family when Edgard was five, interrogates those close to him, to find out what exactly happened - and who his son really was. Helpfully for the reader, Edgar himself punctuates the father's conversations with his mother, best friend Willi, and Charlie, the woman with whom Edgar was unhappily in love, to give us his version of events from beyond the grave - and a story magically reminiscent of Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther and Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye unfolds before our eyes. Originally conceived as a screenplay, Plenzdorf's modern classic was first published in East Germany in 1973. A satire about the cultural and social limits of the GDR, it has long been a set text in German schools, and its critical and popular success remains unabated
Carla = (Karla) by Hermann Zschoche( Visual )

21 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young idealistic teacher, just starting her career in East German schools, discovers her students hide their true thoughts and only say what they are expected to say. The young teacher tries to encourage open discussions about taboo topics, attempting to break down the walls of suspicion and cynicism. Her superiors view her actions with unease and eventually intervene to discipline Carla. The film was labeled nihilistic, skeptical and hostile by the Unity Party of Germany (SED) and only in 1990 was it shown in cinemas
