Berlin Alexanderplatz : die Geschichte vom Franz Biberkopf by Alfred Döblin( Book )

505 editions published between 1929 and 2019 in 24 languages and held by 3,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The inspiration for Rainer Werner Fassbinder's epic film and that The Guardian named one of the "Top 100 Books of All Time," Berlin Alexanderplatz is considered one of the most important works of the Weimar Republic and twentieth century literature. Franz Biberkopf, pimp and petty thief, has just finished serving a term in prison for murdering his girlfriend. He's on his own in Weimar Berlin with its lousy economy and frontier morality, but Franz is determined to turn over new leaf, get ahead, make an honest man of himself, and so on and so forth. He hawks papers, chases girls, needs and bleeds money, gets mixed up in spite of himself in various criminal and political schemes, and when he tries to back out of them, it's at the cost of an arm. This is only the beginning of our modern everyman's multiplying misfortunes, but though Franz is more dupe than hustler, in the end, well, persistence is rewarded and things might be said to work out. Just like in a novel. Lucky Franz. Berlin, Alexanderplatz is one of great twentieth-century novels. Taking off from the work of Dos Passos and Joyce, Doblin depicts modern life in all its shocking violence, corruption, splendor, and horror. Michael Hofmann, celebrated for his translations of Joseph Roth and Franz Kafka, has prepared a new version, the first in over 75 years, in which Doblin's sublime and scurrilous masterpiece comes alive in English as never before"-

Un portrait romancé du condottiere qui fut un des principaux acteurs de la guerrre de Trente Ans en Allemagne.

Die drei Sprünge des Wang-lun : chinesischer Roman by Alfred Döblin( Book )

121 editions published between 1915 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1915, fourteen years before Berlin Alexanderplatz, Alfred Doblin published his first novel, an amazing, extensively researched Chinese historical extravaganza: The Three Leaps of Wang Lun. Even more remarkably, given its subject matter, the book was written in expressionist style and is now considered the first modern German novel, as well as the first Western novel to depict a China untouched by the West. Based on actual accounts of a doomed rebellion during the reign of Emperor Qianlong in the late eighteenth century, the novel tells the story of Wang Lun, a historical martial arts master and charismatic leader of the White Lotus sect, who leads a futile revolt of the "Truly Powerless." Densely packed cities and Tibetan wastes, political intrigue and religious yearning, imperial court life and the fate of wandering outcasts are depicted in a language of enormous vigor and matchless imagination, unfolding the theme of timidity against force and a mystical sense of the world against the realities of power"

Döblins große Südamerika-Trilogie "Ihr seid in einer grauenhaften Unwissenheit", sagt der Häuptling am Ende der : mazonas9 Trilogie zu den Europäern. Alfred Döblins im Exil entstandenes Erzählwerk veranschaulicht diese koloniale Ignoranz und ist so gesehen auch ein großes Buch der Trauer über die europäische Zivilisation. Darüber hinaus aber ist es der beeindruckende Versuch, dem unbekannten südamerikanischen Kontinent, seiner Natur, dem Wald und Wasser, den Tieren und Menschen, eine Vielzahl von Stimmen, Bildern und Geschichten zu verleihen. Ein opulent erzähltes Romanwerk, das unserer bis heute bestehenden Unwissenheit das : issen9 einer Tatsachenphantasie" entgegensetzt, die so überbordend und mitreißend ist wie der Amazonasstrom. Mit einem Nachwort von Alexander Honold

Tales of a long night : a novel by Alfred Döblin( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and German and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a young Englishman called Edward Allison who loses a leg during World War II and returns home a nervous as well as a physical wreck, tormented by doubt and anger, and obsessed with what seems to him the mystery of where the blame for the war really lies. He is released from a clinic in the hope that living among his family will hasten his cure, but he simply transfers his fixation with hidden guilt to the domestic front. ... In an effort to exorcise his demons, the Allisons and their friends start telling a series of stories, many of them variations on ancient myths and legends. Some of these tales serve to reveal the character of the storyteller, others as a riposte or as a comment on what has gone before. All of them are meant to advance the psychological and spiritual action. Many of the tales of Doblin's long night have an undoubted lurid power. ... We move through an expressionist phantasmagoria from a wayward bus in Los Angeles to Pluto and Proserpina, by way of Michelangelo and Salome and a mock-medieval tale about the Virgin. Edward's mother, Alice Allison (a significant name, we can be sure), spins variants of a story about a mother who waits for her son to come back from the war, now in Montmartre, now in Germany, and elaborates on the already elaborate legend of her patron saint, Theodora. In the final stages of the book the distinction between framework and fantasy starts to break down completely. Yet through the haze it is possible to discern a continuous story unfolding--fmerusault at
