Die Pest by Albert Camus( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in German and held by 20 libraries worldwide
Im Mittelpunkt des Geschehens steht der Arzt Bernard Rieux: Schon zu Beginn, als noch niemand in der Stadt auch nur an die Pest denkt, steht seine Diagnose fest: Den dahingerafften Ratten werden die Menschen folgen! Doch bis die Behörden endlich in die Gänge kommen, vergeht kostbare Zeit. Unermüdlich versucht Rieux zu retten. Um den Arzt gruppieren sich der zufällig in der Stadt weilende Journalist Rambert, der anfangs zu seiner Geliebten nach Paris fliehen will, dann aber bleibt, der Jesuitenpater Paneloux und Tarrou. Auch sie setzen alles daran, Menschen zu retten. Dramatischer Höhepunkt der tödlichen Entwicklung ist das sinnlose Sterben eines kleinen Jungen. Sinnlos und absurd ist auch das Sterben des Paters, des Freundes Tarrou und der Ehefrau des Arztes. Kurz vor Ausbruch der Pest war sie in ein Sanatorium außerhalb der Stadt gegangen. Am Ende gibt sich der Verfasser der Chronik als der Arzt Rieux zu erkennen, für den die Pest eine endlose Niederlage war und ist. Denn "der Pestbazillus stirbt niemals aus oder verschwindet ..."
Seamarks by Saint-John Perse( Book )
2 editions published in 1969 in German and held by 20 libraries worldwide
In selecting St.-John Perse to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature [1960] the committees have chosen to honour the work of the most senior of European poets. Since the death of Boris Pasternak it is hard to think of any other major poet whose characteristic published work stretches from 1909 (Images à Crusoé) to the present day (Chronique), and this in itself is not without significance in any estimate of his achievement. St.-John Perse is often (and rightly) described as an epic writer--a rare phenomenon these days ... The poetry of St.-John Perse is the monument he has raised to his own fame and to a difficult humanism. Honouring him, we honour ourselves. --Encounter
