Schöne neue Welt : ein Roman der Zukunft by Aldous Huxley( Book )

Die schöne neue Welt, die Huxley hier beschreibt, ist die Welt einer konsequent verwirklichten Wohlstandsgesellschaft>>im Jahre 632 nach Ford<<, einer Wohlstandsgesellschaft, in der alle Menschen am Luxus teilhaben, in der Unruhe, Elend und Krankheit überwunden, in der aber auch Freiheit, Religion, Kunst und Humanität auf der Strecke geblieben sind. Eine totale Herrschaft garantiert ein genormtes Glück. In dieser vollkommen>>formierten<<Gesellschaft erscheint jede Art von Individualismus als>>asozial<<, wird als>>Wilder<<betrachtet, wer - wie einer der rebellischen Außenseiter dieses Romans - für sich fordert:>>Ich brauche keine Bequemlichkeit. Ich will Gott, ich will Poesie, ich will wirkliche Gefahren und Freiheit und Tugend. Ich will Sünde!<>

The angel that troubled the waters, and other plays by Thornton Wilder( Book )

8 editions published between 1954 and 1982 in German and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his Foreword to The Angel That Troubled the Waters and Other Plays, published in 1928, Wilder explained that almost all the playlets in the book are religious, "but religious in that dilute fashion that is a believer's concession to a contemporary standard of good manners." He wanted to explore religious themes and questions without being preachy, or didactic ... In fact, it was often his intention in such playlets as this one to stand the biblical story on its head -to shake up the language, as it were. He also said--about his plays dealing with religious themes and stories--that in "these matters beyond logic, beauty is the only persuasion."
