Die frühen Jahre des »Spaziergängers nach Syrakus« - anlässlich dessen 255. Geburtstags am 29. Januar 2018 erstmals ungekürzt. In seiner Autobiographie »Mein Leben« erzählt der berühmte Reiseschriftsteller Johann Gottfried Seume von seiner abenteuerlichen Jugend Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts: aufgewachsen als Bauernsohn, studierte er zunächst in Leipzig Theologie, bis er sich 1781 heimlich auf den Weg nach Frankreich machte. Unterwegs wurde er von hessischen Werbern rekrutiert und an die Engländer verkauft, als Kanonenfutter für den Krieg in Nordamerika. Als Unteroffizier kehrte der am Fuß verletzte Seume 1783 aus Kanada zurück und desertierte. Aus Furcht vor der zeitgenössischen Zensur kürzte und glättete der Verleger Georg Joachim Göschen Seumes so freimütig erzählte Autobiographie, bevor er sie wenige Jahre nach dessen Tod veröffentlichte. Das Manuskript war danach im Besitz von Sammlern, darunter Stefan Zweig, der es an Martin Bodmer verkaufte. Dirk Sangmeister stellt nun zum ersten Mal den anhand des originalen Manuskriptes aus der Bibliotheca Bodmeriana erarbeiteten Gesamttext vor. Sorgfältig kommentiert ermöglicht »Mein Leben« unmittelbare Einblicke in eine bewegte Zeit und bietet noch heute eine spannende Lektüre

The gallery by John Horne Burns( Book )

5 editions published between 1951 and 1964 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Horne Burns brought The Gallery back from World War II, and on publication in 1947 it became a critically-acclaimed bestseller. However, Burns's early death at the age of 36 led to the subsequent neglect of this searching book, which captures the shock the war dealt to the preconceptions and ideals of the victorious Americans. Set in occupied Naples in 1944, The Gallery takes its name from the Galleria Umberto, a bombed-out arcade where everybody in town comes together in pursuit of food, drink, sex, money, and oblivion. A daring and enduring novel, one of the first to look directly at gay life in the military. The Gallery poignantly conveys the mixed feelings of the men and women who fought the war that made America a superpower"--Publisher's description
