Frieden im Krieg : ein Roman aus dem Carlistenaufstand by Miguel de Unamuno( Book )

10 editions published in 1929 in German and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mist : a tragicomic novel by Miguel de Unamuno( Book )

19 editions published between 1926 and 1997 in German and Undetermined and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dispensing with the conventions of action, time and place, and analysis of character, Mist proceeds entirely on the strength of dialog that reveals the struggles of what Unamuno called his 'agonists.' These include Augusto Perez, the pampered son of a recently deceased mother; the deceitful, scheming Eugenia, whom Augusto obsessively loves and idealizes; and Augusto's dog Orfeo, who gives a funeral oration upon his master's death. Augusto is to be married to Eugenia who leaves and causes him to contemplate suicide. Before he does that, however, he consults the book's author Unamuno, who informs him he cannot kill himself because he is a fictional character. Mist even includes a chapter that explains Unamuno's theory of the antinovel. Anticipating later writers such as Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre, Unamuno exploited fiction as a vehicle for the exploration of philosophical themes. First published in 1914, Mist exemplified a new kind of novel with which Unamuno aimed to shatter fiction's conventional illusions of reality. It is an antinovel that treats its fictionality ironically

Kant's 1788 follow-up to his epochal Critique of Pure Reason analyzes the practical aspects of reason, which is concerned with will, or self-determination. He argues that the freedom of the will becomes the practical necessity of determining how one shall lead one's life, with the fundamental principle of morality being the "categorical imperative" stating that one should be obligated to act so that any moral action could be made into a universal law binding all mankind

Dead souls by Nikolaĭ Vasilʹevich Gogolʹ( Book )

14 editions published between 1916 and 1939 in German and Undetermined and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stranger arrives in a Russian backwater community with a bizarre proposition for the local landowners: cash for their "dead souls," the serfs who have died in their service and for whom they must continue to pay taxes until the next census. The landowner receives a payment and a relief of his tax burden, and the stranger receives--what? Gogol's comic masterpiece offers a vast and satirical painting of the Russian panorama as it traces the path and encounters of its mysterious protagonist in pursuit of his dubious scheme. Dead Souls, regarded as both a realistic portrait of nineteenth-century Russia and a work of great symbolism, continues to inspire twenty-first century authors and readers
