My struggle by Karl Ove Knausgård( Book )

68 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The provocative, audacious, brilliant six-volume autobiographical novel that has unquestionably been the main event of contemporary European literature. It has earned favorable comparisons to its obvious literary forebears "A la recherche du temps perdu" and "Mein Kampf" but has been celebrated as the rare magnum opus that is intensely, addictively readable.--

"A portrait of the artist as a young boy. On the heels of Book One and Two of the internationally celebrated autobiographical novel series My Struggle, Book Three finds us in the sensuous realm of Karl Ove's childhood. A family of four -- mother, father, and two boys -- move to the South Coast of Norway to a new house on a newly developed site. It's the early 1970s and the family's trajectory: upwardly mobile. The future seems limitless. We follow Karl Ove through bicycle expeditions, tense swim meets and locker rooms, girls, football pyromaniac pranks, and rock music in what seem like a traditional, if brutal, coming-of-age novel. In painstaking, sometimes self-lacerating detail, Knausgaard paints a world familiar to anyone who can recall the intensity and singularity of childhood experience, one in which children and adults lead parallel lives that never meet. Perhaps the most Proustian in the series, Book Three gives us Knausgaard's vivid, technicolor recollections of childhood, his emerging self-understanding, and the multilayered nature of time's passing, memory, and existence, all formed by the fear of his controlling, unpredictable, and omnipresent father."--

In the sixteenth century, Antinous Bellori, a boy of eleven, is lost in a dark forest and stumbles upon two glowing beings, one carrying a spear, the other a flaming torch.

At twenty, Karl Ove moves to Bergen. As the youngest student to be admitted to the prestigious Writing Academy, he arrives full of excitement and writerly aspirations. Soon though, he is stripped of youthful illusions. His writing is revealed to be puerile and cliched, and his social efforts are a dismal failure. Awkward in company and hopeless with women, he drowns his shame in drink and rock music. Then, little by little, things take a brighter turn. He falls in love, gives up writing in favour of the steady rewards of literary criticism, and the beginnings of an adult life take shape. That is, until his self-destructive binges and the irresistible lure of the writer's struggle pull him back. In this fifth instalment of the My Struggle cycle, Karl Ove discloses his personal and often deeply shameful battles with introversion, alcohol abuse, infidelity and artistic ambition. Knausgaard writes with unflinching honesty to deliver the full drama of everyday life, in a breathless novel poised between a desperate yearning to be good, and the terrible power of transgression

My struggle : by Karl Ove Knausgård( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Childhood is exhilarating and terrifying. For the young Karl Ove, new houses, classes and friends are met with manic excitement and creeping dread. Adults occupy godlike positions of power, benevolent in the case of his doting mother, tyrannical in the case of his cruel father. In the now infamously direct style of the My Struggle cycle, Knausgaard describes a time in which victories and defeats are felt keenly and every attempt at self-definition is frustrated. This is a book about family, memory and how we never become quite what we set out to be

Es ist eine Zeit des Umbruchs und der Veränderungen. Das Abitur hat er in der Tasche, die Eltern haben sich getrennt, die Begegnungen mit dem Vater sind spannungsgeladen, die ersten Schritte hinein in ein selbstbestimmtes Leben begleitet von Alkoholräuschen, die der junge Karl Ove in seiner Not immer öfter sucht, weil er diese mit einem Gefühl von Freiheit verbindet - verheißen sie ihm doch Befreiung von all den Komplexen, Unsicherheiten und Nöten, die ihn plagen und noch lange Jahre plagen werden. Lebenslust sieht anders aus. Unschlüssig, was er mit seinem Leben beginnen soll, beschließt Knausgård ein Jahr als Aushilfslehrer an eine Dorfschule nach Nord-Norwegen zu gehen. Dabei wird er nicht nur mit Schülern konfrontiert, die ihn verständlicherweise als Autoritätsperson nicht ernstnehmen, sondern auch mit einer überwältigenden, für ihn ebenso neuen wie faszinierenden Natur. Bald bildet sich ein Lebensmuster heraus. Den Job erledigt er mit möglichst wenig Aufwand, danach versucht er sich mittels Schreibversuchen an der Etablierung einer Autorenidentität. An den Wochenende wird hemmungslos getrunken, wobei die älteren Kollegen keinerlei Versuche machen, ihren jugendlichen Aushilfslehrer zu mäßigen. Statt dessen trinken sie mit. Am Ende des Jahres steht die Rückkehr in südlichere Regionen an - und die Aufnahme an der neu gegründeten Akademie für Schreibkunst in Bergen ... Was war das für ein Jahr? Und inwiefern ist es exemplarisch für andere Anfänge? Für unseren Start ins Erwachsenenleben? Wer Knausgård liest, wird schnell gefangengenommen von eigenen Erinnerungen, die Fragen aufwerfen, die weit über eine gewöhnliche Lektüre hinausgehen

A portrait of the artist as a young man by James Joyce( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use'silence, exile, and cunning." James Joyce's supremely innovative fictional autobiography is also, in the apt phrase of the biographer Richard Ellmann, nothing less than "the gestation of a soul." For as he describes the shabby, cloying, and sometimes terrifying Dublin upbringing of his alter ego, Stephen Dedalus, Joyce immerses the reader in his emerging consciousness, employing language that ranges from baby talk to hellfire sermon to a triumphant artist's manifesto. The result is a novel of immense boldness, eloquence, and energy, a work that inaugurated a literary revolution and has become a model for the portrayal of the self in our time. The text of this edition has been newly edited by Hans Walter Gabler and Walter Hettche and is followed by a new afterword, chronology, and bibliography by Richard Brown

Almost ten years have passed since Karl Ove Knausgaard's father drank himself to death. Vulnerable and assailed by doubts, he is now embarking on a new novel. With an uncanny eye for detail, Knausgaard breaks down his own life story to its elementary particles, reliving memories, reopening wounds, and examining with candor the turbulence and the epiphanies that emerge from his own experience of fatherhood, the fallout in the wake of his father's death, and his visceral connection to music, art, and literature. Karl Ove's dilemmas strike nerves that give us raw glimpses of our particular moment in history as we witness what happens to the sensitive and churning mind of a young man trying--as if his very life depended on it--to find his place in the disjointed world around him
