Breakers : a novel by Martin Walser( Book )

73 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 9 languages and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English and European novels set in American university communities have become something of a tradition in recent decades as itinerant novelists sojourn here as visiting professors and later go home to tell all. Notable German writer Walser has entered the lists with a feeling, clear-eyed novel of manners, a trenchant commentary on both academia and a contemporary, self-indulgent lifestyle. Helmut Halm, a German scholar in his 50s and a man of wide, general culture is teaching for a semester at a Bay Area university and is greatly taken with the inevitable coed blonde, Porsche-driving, milk-drinking Fran. As much as with Fran, Halm falls in love with California: the eternal sun, the coast and sea, the mellow, laid-back existence. So infatuated is he with its rituals that this repressed Teuton decks himself out in trendy clothes and even undertakes the ordeal of jogging... But eventually even here grim realities intrude. Two shocking deaths restore Halm's psychological equilibrium and end the novel on a sobering note. --Publishers Weekly

Ein springender Brunnen : Roman by Martin Walser( Book )

63 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Appearing for the first time in English, this masterful novel by one of the foremost figures of postwar German literature is an indelible portrait of Nazism slowly overtaking and poisoning a small town. Semi-autobiographical, it is also a remarkably vivid account of a childhood fraught with troubles, yet full of remembered love and touched by miracle. In a provincial town on Lake Constance, Johann basks in the affection of the colorful staff and regulars at the Station Restaurant. Though his parents struggle to make ends meet, around him the world is rich in mystery: the attraction of girls; the power of words and his gift for music; his rivalry with his best friend, Adolf, son of the local Brownshirt leader; a circus that comes to town bringing Anita, whose love he and Adolf compete to win. But in these hard times, with businesses failing all around them and life savings gone in an instant, people whisper that only Hitler can save them. As the Nazis gradually infiltrate the churches, the school, the youth organizations-even the restaurant-and come to power, we see through Johann's eyes how the voices of dissent are silenced one by one, until war begins the body count that will include his beloved older brother"--

Resumen: El autor investiga lo que Kafka llama el escribir. La persona burguesa del poeta se reduce y se trasforma en la personalidad del que escribe.La persona Kafka cede la palabra al Kafka que escribe.Walser examina desde este punto de vista la cosificacion, las audiencias e interrogatorios, las discusiones, las empresas de los protagonistas fantasmagoricos de Kafka, como asimismo el papel que desempena el espectador, mostrando como el instante decisivo es permanente en la evolucion humana. Describiendo al observador Kafka, logra lo que no alcanzaron otros interpretes, sin interferir nunca entre el lector y la obra
