Download e-book for iPad: Der Kleine Fuchs. Und der Alte Mann, Teil 2 (German Edition) by Richard A. Huthmacher

By Richard A. Huthmacher

Deshalb träume ich den Traum von einer etwas gerechteren, ein wenig besseren Welt. Bekanntlich indes heißt οuτοπία Nicht-Ort. Dennoch: Utopien haben immer auch eine Vorbildfunktion, sie sind das Konglomerat unserer Hoffnungen, Wünsche und Sehnsüchte. Solange wir noch eine Utopie haben, werden wir nicht an der Dystopie, d.h. an der Anti-Utopie, will meinen an der Realität zerbrechen“, so der Kleine Fuchs zum Alten Mann.
Der antwortet: „Ich glaube, Du willst mir sagen, dass wir alle lediglich als Entwurf von uns selbst geboren werden. Zunächst nicht mehr sind als ein Traum – der Mensch, ein Traum, used to be könnte sein, was once möglich wär.“
In unserer „schönen, neuen Welt“, in der Gefühle, in der Hoffnungen und Sehnsüchte, in der folglich auch Verzweiflung, Trauer und Wut keinen Platz mehr haben. Denn sie werden, samt und sonders, als störend empfunden und als hinderlich erachtet – für das reibungslose Funktionieren einer zunehmend seelenlosen Gesellschaft, die einzig und allein die emotionslose Maximierung des earnings zu Gegenstand und Ziel hat.
Ein Traum – nur ein Vielleicht, nicht weniger, nicht mehr: in eben dieser Welt, in der Unrecht nicht durch göttliche Fügung geschieht, sondern durch der Menschen Hand. Weshalb die, welche, vermeintlich, versagen, selten aus eigener Schuld scheitern, vielmehr und viel mehr an Lüge und Unterdrückung, an Armut und Not.
Mithin: „Das Böse“ gründet nicht im Mensch-Sein an und für sich; es entsteht auf Grundlage dessen, was once Menschen anderen Menschen antun. Deshalb sind wir für „das Böse“ verantwortlich. Allesamt. Und können uns nicht exkulpieren, indem wir „das Böse“ bei Anderen und im Anders-Sein suchen. Das Böse sind wir selbst. Ebenso wie „das Gute“. Denn: Mögen die Dinge nebeneinander stehen, so liegen die Seelen der Menschen doch ineinander.
Gleichwohl und – gleichsam zum Trost – gilt auch: „In einer schweren Zeit ist es leicht, ein sinnvolles Leben zu führen. Weil ein sinnvolles Leben immer schwer ist.“

Little Novels of Sicily by Giovanni Verga,D.H. Lawrence PDF

By Giovanni Verga,D.H. Lawrence

First released in one quantity in 1883, the tales accumulated in Little Novels of Sicily are drawn from the Sicily of Giovanni Verga's early life, pronounced on the time to be the poorest position in Europe. Verga's variety is fast, convinced, and implacable; he plunges into his tales virtually in midbreath, and tells them with a stark financial system of phrases. there is something darkish and tightly coiled on the middle of every tale, an ironic, sour answer that's belied by way of the misleading simplicity of Verga's prose, and Verga moves simply while the reader's now not watching for it.

Translator D. H. Lawrence without doubt came upon echoes of his personal upbringing in Verga's sketches of Sicilian existence: the category fight among homeowners and tenants, the connection among males and the land, and the unsentimental, occasionally startlingly lyric evocation of the panorama. simply as Lawrence veers among loving and despising the economic North and its humans, so too Verga shifts among affection for and ironic detachment from the superstitious, uneducated, downtrodden operating terrible of Sicily. If Verga reserves pity for an individual or whatever, it's the little ones and the animals, yet he does not spare them. In his adventure, it's the innocents that suffer first and final and always.

From the exchange Paperback edition.

Ob Mann oder Frau: Jeder, der Lust oder Frust in einer Beziehung kennt, kann sich wiederfinden. Und wird beim Zuklappen des Buches (vielleicht seufzend) sagen: Ich liebe – na und? Nach mir die Sintflut ...
