Andorra : a play in twelve scenes by Max Frisch( Book )

419 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 2,667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play is set in the tiny principality of Andorra in southwestern Europe. The story revolves around a young boy, Andri, who is brought up as the Jewish adoptive son of the town's Teacher, who claims to have rescued him as a child from the neighbouring, anti-semitic "Blacks" (implying Blackshirts). However, it is revealed during the first half of the play that the story of Andri's origin is a lie: he is the illegitimate child of the Teacher and the Señora, a lady from the Blacks, and Andri is not a Jew. When the play starts, Andri is engaged to the Teacher's daughter Barblin, who he has grown up with and who (unbeknownst to him) is his half-sister. While the Teacher tries to ensure they do not marry, Andri becomes the center of anti-semitism first from his fellow town members and later from invading Black forces. When the Teacher finally reveals the truth, the townspeople do not accept it, and permit Andri to be killed. At the end, Andri identifies with the Jews and defiantly welcomes his fate. --Wikipedia.com

18 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in English and German and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stunning tour de force, Man in the Holocene constructs a powerful vision of our place in the world by combining the banality of an aging man's lonely inner life and the objective facts he finds in the books of his isolated home. As a rainstorm rages outside, Max Frisch's protagonist, Geiser, watches the mountain landscape crumble beneath landslides and flooding, and speculates that the town will be wiped out by the collapse of a section of the mountain. Seeking refuge from the storm in town, he makes his way through a difficult and dangerous mountain pass, only to abandon his original plan and return home. A compelling meditation by one of Frisch's most original characters, Man in the Holocene charts Geiser's desperate attempt to find his place in history and in the confusing and fragile world outside his window

Dr. med. Felix Schaad stand in Verdacht, mit seiner Krawatte seine ehemalige Frau Rosalinde Zogg erdrosselt zu haben. Für den Staatsanwalt steht das Motiv fest: Eifersucht. Der Staatsanwalt will Schaad für zehn Jahre ins Zuchthaus schicken, doch das Gericht erkennt auf Freispruch. "Was meinen Blaubart betrifft: Schaad weiß nicht, was er unter Schuld versteht, und er ist nicht der einzige, der das heute nicht weiß, glaube ich. Schaad hat ein latentes Schuldgefühl. Vor Gericht wird ihm ein Delikt unterstellt, das er nicht begangen hat. Er weiß, dass er nicht der Täter gewesen ist, aber er kann nicht sagen: Ich bin unschuldig. ... Für mich geht es in diesem etwas schauerlichen Buch zentral um die Frage von Schuld - Unschuld in einem Fall, wo die Schuld nicht belegbar ist durch die Tat. ... Ich habe den Kriminalfall so durchschnittlich wie möglich gewählt, damit er nicht das Interesse abzieht, denn nicht dieser Kriminalfall hat mich interessiert, sondern die Technik der Wahrheitsfindung, das Gericht als Beispiel..."

Triptychon : drei szenische Bilder by Max Frisch( Book )

36 editions published between 1978 and 1993 in German and Undetermined and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schweizer Autor (1911-1991). - Auch wenn die Vorstellung eines Lebens nach dem Tod als unhaltbar bezeichnet wird, so bleibt eine Vorstellung von Ewigkeit, der Tod als Mystifikation: daß der Tod letztlich die Wahrheit über unser Leben ist. Triptychon besteht aus drei Bildern, die nicht Stationen einer dramatischen Handlung sind, sondern drei szenische Aspekte zum Thema geben. Das erste: unsere gesellschaftliche Verlegenheit beim Ableben eines Menschen. Das zweite: die Toten unter sich, ihre langsam versiegenden Gespräche am Styx, wo es die Ewigkeit des Gewesenen, aber keine Erwartung gibt. Das dritte: der Lebende in der unlösbaren Beziehung zum toten Partner, der, was immer der Lebende tue, nicht umzudenken vermag
