The hunger angel : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

98 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 2,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was an icy morning in January 1945 when the patrol came for seventeen-year-old Leo Auberg to deport him to a camp in the Soviet Union. Leo would spend the next five years in a coke processing plant, shoveling coal, lugging bricks, mixing mortar, and battling the relentless calculus of hunger that governed the labor colony: one shovel load of coal is worth one gram of bread. In her new novel, Nobel laureate Herta Müller calls upon her unique combination of poetic intensity and dispassionate precision to conjure the distorted world of the labor camp in all its physical and moral absurdity. She has given Leo the language to express the inexpressible, as hunger sharpens his senses into an acuity that is both hallucinatory and profound. In scene after disorienting scene, the most ordinary objects accrue tender poignancy as they acquire new purpose - a gramophone box serves as a suitcase, a handkerchief becomes a talisman, an enormous piece of casing pipe functions as a lovers' trysting place. The heart is reduced to a pump, the breath mechanized to the rhythm of a swinging shovel, and coal, sand, and snow have a will of their own. Hunger becomes an insatiable angel who haunts the camp, but also a bare-knuckled sparring partner, delivering blows that keep Leo feeling the rawest connection to life

The fox was ever the hunter : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

90 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 1,393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An early masterpiece from the winner of the Nobel Prize hailed as the laureate of life under totalitarianism. Romania--the last months of the Ceausescu regime. Adina is a young schoolteacher. Paul is a musician. Clara works in a wire factory. Pavel is Clara's lover. But one of them works for the secret police and is reporting on all of the group. One day Adina returns home to discover that her fox fur rug has had its tail cut off. On another occasion it's the hindleg. Then a foreleg. The mutilated fur is a sign that she is being tracked by the secret police--the fox was ever the hunter. Images of photographic precision combine into a kaleidoscope of terror as Adina and her friends struggle to keep mind and body intact in a world pervaded by complicity and permeated with fear, where it's hard to tell victim from perpetrator. In The Fox Was Always a Hunter, Herta Müller once again uses language that displays the "concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose"--As the Swedish Academy noted upon awarding her the Nobel Prize--to create a hauntingly cinematic portrayal of the corruption of the soul under totalitarianism"--

'Hunger und Seide' enthält Herta Müllers Essays aus den Jahren von 1990 bis 1995, also den Zusammenbruch des Sozialismus und das Entstehen neuer kurzlebiger Utopien: 'Wenn Utopien, während sie ausgedacht und aufgeschrieben werden, von einem Satz zum anderen auch nur einen Augenblick in einem einzigen Menschen lachen, essen, gehen oder schlafen müssten, gäbe es keine.' Wahrheit und Lüge, Aufrichtigkeit und Betrug, Macht und Widerstand in der Diktatur, das sind die grossen Themen der mit dem Literaturnobelpreis ausgezeichneten Autorin. 'Ein Satz von Herta Müller kann einen Roman ersetzen' - die Worte von Verena Auffermann (Süddeutsche Zeitung) charakterisieren auch die Kraft dieser Essays.

Der König verneigt sich und tötet by Herta Müller( Book )

58 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A menudo me preguntan por qué en mis textos aparece tanto el rey y tan raras veces el dictador. La palabra "rey" suena suave. Y a menudo me preguntan por qué en mis textos aparece tanto el peluquero. El peluquero mide los cabellos, y los cabellos miden la vida." Herta Müller En El rey se inclina y mata Herta Müller se cuestiona su propia escritura y los condicionamientos históricos y políticos a los que ésta se halla sometida: la dictadura rumana de Ceausescu, donde creció y donde se forjó su conciencia lingüística y política hasta su exilio en Berlín. Asimismo, el lenguaje constituye el centro de todas sus reflexiones: el lenguaje como instrumento de poder y de represión, pero también como posibilidad de resistencia y de autoafirmación frente al poder totalitario. Parte esencial de esta reflexión está formada por los recuerdos de su infancia y de su familia, de esa familia cuya lengua era el alemán. Surge así el perfil, tan definido como impactante, de una experiencia vital bajo el régimen totalitario a la que la autora responde, muy consecuentemente, con una obra literaria que ha merecido el Premio Nobel
Vater telefoniert mit den Fliegen by Herta Müller( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To create the poems in this collection, Nobel Prize-winner Herta Müller cut up countless newspapers and magazines in search of striking phrases, words, or even fragments of words, which she then arranged in a the form of a collage. Father's on the Phone with the Flies presents seventy-three of Müller's collage poems for the first time in English translation, alongside full-color reproductions of the originals. Müller takes full advantage of the collage form, generating poems rich in wordplay, ambiguity, and startling, surreal metaphors--the disruption and dislocation at their core rendered visible through stark contrasts in color, font, and type size. Liberating words from conformity and coercion, Müller renders them fresh and invests them forcefully with personal experience. Sure to thrill any fan of contemporary literature, Father's on the Phone with the Flies is an unexpected, exciting work from one of the most protean writers ever to win the Nobel

En una interesante conversación con Angelika Klammer habla de su trayectoria, desde su infancia en un pequeño pueblo rural del Bánato suabo hasta convertirse en la escritora mundialmente famosa que recibió en Estocolmo el premio literario más importante. En Mi patria era una semilla de manzana la autora reflexiona sobre su adolescencia y juventud en la ciudad rumana de Timisoara y el despertar de la conciencia política, sus primeros contactos con la literatura, los conflictos con el régimen comunista y la construcción de un camino propio a través de la escritura; también detalla por primera vez lo que la llevó a escribir y aquello que ha determinado su obra. Por otra parte, su descripción de la llegada a un nuevo país introduce una mirada distinta sobre la Alemania de los años ochenta y noventa, así como sobre la sociedad en que vivimos hoy

Herta Müller erzählt von dem, was sie zum Schreiben gebracht hat - eine Lebensgeschichte in der Literatur. "Ich stehe (wie so oft) auch hier neben mir selbst." So begann Herta Müller ihre Tischrede nach der Verleihung des Nobelpreises. In einem langen Gespräch mit Angelika Klammer erzählt sie von ihrem ungewöhnlichen Lebensweg, der vom Kind, das Kühe hütet, bis zur weltweit bekannten Schriftstellerin im Stadthaus in Stockholm führt. Sie erzählt von der Kindheit in Rumänien, vom Erwachsenwerden und dem erwachenden politischen Bewusstsein, von den frühen Begegnungen mit der Literatur, den Konflikten mit der Diktatur des Kommunismus und dem eigenen Weg zum Schreiben. Mit ihrem Bericht vom Ankommen in einem neuen Land fällt auch ein ungewohnter Blick auf das Deutschland der 80er und 90er Jahre und auf die Gesellschaft, in der wir heute leben
