1965 - der kurze Sommer der DDR by Gunnar Decker( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es war ein kurzer Sommer. Mitte der Sechzigerjahre versuchte die DDR, sich aus der Umklammerung durch die Sowjetunion zu befreien und ihren Künstlern und Intellektuellen größere Freiräume zuzugestehen. Doch schon bald setzten sich die Hardliner durch, die letzten unabhängigen Köpfe verabschiedeten sich von der SED. Für Gunnar Decker setzt damals jene innere Erosion ein, die 1989 zum Zusammenbruch des deutschen Sozialismus führte. Sein Buch spiegelt Aufstieg und Niedergang der DDR in den Schicksalen bekannter und unbekannter Schriftsteller, Theaterleute und Filmemacher. Decker, 1965 in der DDR geboren, erzählt ein Kapitel deutscher Kulturgeschichte, das mit dem Fall der Mauer noch lange nicht zu Ende ist

Hesse : the wanderer and his shadow by Gunnar Decker( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermann Hesse's stories inspired nonconformity and a yearning for universal values to supplant the political fanaticism tearing Europe apart. Initially, critics thought his work inaccessible to Americans, but the counterculture of the 1960s--and subsequent generations of admirers--emphatically proved the opposite. Gunnar Decker weaves together previously unavailable sources to offer a unique interpretation of the life and work of Hermann Hesse. Drawing on newly discovered correspondence between Hesse and his psychoanalyst Josef Lang, Decker shows how Hesse reversed the traditional roles of therapist and client, and rethinks the relationship between Hesse's novels and Jungian psychoanalysis. Readers who can now explore Hesse's correspondence with Thomas Mann and Stefan Zweig--the latter recently unearthed--will come away with a better understanding of the author's profound sense of alienation from his contemporaries.--
