Der ewige Spiesser by Ödön von Horváth( Book )

"This important, never-before-translated work by a major yet overlooked mid-20th century writer, is a brutally funny look at the human comedy on the eve of Europe's descent into Fascism. A classic, prescient work of pre-WWII literature by a major Weimar author about a young man who is a failed used car salesman. In search of another means to live the high life, he decides to travel by train from Berlin to Madrid to see the World's Fair--and hopefully meet a beautiful, rich woman who will provide for his every whim. It's a highly stylized, and at times raucously funny, tale of the almost-absurd: a dark and satiric look at Europeans, and especially Germans, from all levels of society on the brink of cataclysmic Fascism. And as such, it is, perhaps, the most significant work of this important writer's oeuvre. Von Horváth's work fearlessly tried to warn of the dangers of rising fascism and the militarization of Europe (which led to his having to flee Germany and Austria suc- cessively). His characters here are adrift in their acquisitive desires, making them vulnerable to the manipulations and propaganda of the State--and making this novel brilliantly foresightful in its understanding of politics and human nature at a crucial point in modern European history"--

Il commence par écrire des nouvelles romantiques qui traduisent ses expériences révolutionnaires, avant d'évoluer vers des écrits pessimistes qui constatent une alienation sociale totale. Ses derniers écrits, plus psychologiques, tournent autour des thèmes du temps, du changement, du caractère éphémère de la jeunesse

The age of the fish, a novel by Ödön von Horváth( Book )

"Written in exile while in flight from the Nazis, this dark, bizarre evocation of everyday life under fascism is available for the first time in thirty years. This last book by Ödön von Horváth, one of the 20th-century's great but forgotten writers, is a dark fable about guilt, fate, and the individual conscience. An unnamed narrator in an unnamed country is a schoolteacher with "a safe job with a pension at the end of it." But, when he reprimands a student for a racist comment, he is accused of "sabotage of the Fatherland," and his students revolt. A murder follows, and the teacher must face his role in it, even if it costs him everything. Horváth's book both points to its immediate context--the brutalizing conformity of a totalitarian state, the emptiness of faith in the time of the National Socialists--and beyond, to the struggles of individuals everywhere against societies that offer material security in exchange for the abandonment of one's convictions. Reminiscent of Camus' The Stranger in its themes and its style, Youth Without God portrays a world of individual ruthlessness and collective numbness to the appeals of faith or morality. And yet, a commitment to the truth lifts the teacher and a small band of like-minded students out of this deepening abyss. It's a reminder that such commitment did exist in those troubled times--indeed, they're what led the author to flee Germany, first for Austria, and then France, where he met his death in a tragic accident, just two years after the publication of Youth Without God. Long out of print, this new edition resurrects a bracing and still-disturbing vision."--Publisher's website

"Gives us George Mecklin, a restless, soft-spoken teacher at a private school in Manhattan. Depressed by his life of vague moral purpose, George discovers a local adolescent named Ernest breaking into his house. Rather than hand the boy over to the police, as his nagging wife insists, George decides to tutor him. His life consequently implodes."--Page 4 of cover

Ravelstein by Saul Bellow( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mi-récit, mi-roman, le livre retrace l'amitié que le narrateur (Chick) a porté, sa vie durant, à Ravelstein, un personnage hors du commun, professeur à l'Université de Chicago (entre autres), mais aussi philosophe, dandy, ethnologue, qui se flatte d'avoir formé tous les hommes qui comptent dans le monde politique aux USA! Le livre de Bellow est le portrait saisissant d'un génie social et poétique, marginal tapi au cœur du monde, brillant, injuste, colérique, irrésistible. C'est aussi une manière de testament puisque Ravelstein, ami intime de Chick, lui demande d'écrire sur lui, comme Socrate a besoin de Platon pour immortaliser ses paroles. Un voyage dans le temps, ainsi qu'un hymne à l'amitié et à la vie
