A searing portrayal of Vienna's bourgeoisie, it begins with the arrival of an unnamed writer at an 'artistic dinner' hosted by a composer and his society wife'a couple he once admired and has come to loathe. The guest of honor, a distinguished actor from the Burgtheater, is late. As the other guests wait impatiently, they are seen through the critical eye of the writer, who narrates a silent but frenzied tirade against these former friends, most of whom have been brought together by Joana, a woman they buried earlier that day. Reflections on Joana's life and suicide are mixed with these denunciations until the famous actor arrives, bringing an explosive end to the evening that even the writer could not have seen coming+-+214895177565264ocn000230412book19700.63Bernhard, ThomasDas Kalkwerk; Roman65118ocn022347845book19910.28Bernhard, ThomasThe loserFictionMusical fictionIn 1953 three friends, among whom is the later to be famous Glenn Gould, study with Horowitz.

We learn of Rudolph's sister, whose help he invites, then reviles as malevolent meddling; his 'really marvelous' house, which he hates; the suspicious illness he carefully nurses; his ten-year-long attempt to write the perfect opening sentence; and, finally, his escape to the island of Majorca, which turns out to be the site of someone else's very real horror story.

Rather than continue with his medical studies, he travels to a bleak mining town in the back of beyond, in order to clinically observe the aged painter, Strauch, who happens to be the brother of this young man's surgical mentor. The catch is this: Strauch must not know the young man's true occupation or the reason for his arrival.

Dieser "Herkunftskomplex" läßt sich mit dem Namen eines Ortes bezeichnen: Wolfsegg. Hier ist Murau aufgewachsen, hat er den Entschluß gefaßt, daß er, will er sich, seine geistige Existenz retten, Wolfsegg verlassen muß. Obwohl er deshalb beabsichtigt, Wolfsegg zu meiden, muß er dennoch dorthin reisen: seine Eltern und sein Bruder sind bei einem Autounfall ums Eeben gekommen. Dieser erneute Wolfsegg-Aufenthalt macht Murau deutlich, daß er sich von Wolfsegg endgültig lösen muß.

Bei einem Sanatoriumsaufenthalt vertiefte sich seine Freundschaft mit Paul Wittgenstein, die in leidenschaftlichen Diskussionen über Musik begonnen hatte. Paul Wittgenstein, der Neffe Ludwig Wittgensteins, maturierte am Theresianeum in Wien und studierte danach Mathematik. Seit seinem 35. Lebensjahr brach seine Nervenkrankheit immer wieder durch. Anfänglich finanziell sehr gut gesichert durch die Reichtümer einer der reichsten Familien Österreichs, verschenkte er sein Vermögen unbekümmert an Freunde und Arme, bis er selber in Armut dahinvegetierte. In seinen letzten Lebensjahren vereinsamte er mehr und mehr, nur noch mit seinem Freund Thomas Bernhard verbunden. Bernhards Notizen sind zum Bericht der Sterbegeschichte des Paul Wittgenstein geworden. Zwölf Jahre hindurch hatte er das Sterben seines Freundes beobachtet. Und durch diese Beobachtung hat sich auch die Selbstbeobachtung Thomas Bernhards verschärft so daß durch den Porträtierten auch das Bild des Porträtisten starke Konturen gewinnt3382ocn020221374book19900.70Bernhard, ThomasHistrionics : three plays+-+40489517753133ocn548412856book20100.28Bernhard, ThomasMy prizes : an accountingBiographyA collection of personal writings, originally penned in 1980, recounts farces that developed around literary awards received by the late author, from his ungracious participation in ceremonies to the improper ways he spent prizes+-+22372725852782ocn045821117book20010.79Long, J. JThe novels of Thomas Bernhard : form and its functionCriticism, interpretation, etc"Thomas Bernhard (1931-1989) is one of the most important writers of the postwar period, not only in his native Austria, but throughout Europe. Almost all his works have been translated into English, and his novels, plays and non-fiction works have won international acclaim. The present study provides an accessible introduction to Bernhard's novels for an English-speaking readership, and also makes an original contribution to the ongoing debate on this fascinating author. The book's primary emphasis is on Bernhard's later fiction, but it also explicates the early texts of the 1960s and 1970s. The book makes use of insights from recent approaches to fiction that pay attention to what can be termed "narrative dynamics." Earlier studies of Bernhard have tended to remain within the descriptive framework established in narrative studies of the 1950s and 1960s; this book views Bernhard's prose works from a more nuanced vantage point."--BOOK JACKET+-+99778662062691ocn051336449book20030.66Bernhard, ThomasThree novellasIn Playing Watten, the narrator, a doctor who lost his practice due to morphine abuse, describes a visit paid him by a truck driver who wanted the doctor to return to his habit of playing a game of cards (watten) every Wednesday - a habit that the doctor had interrupted when one of the players killed himself. The last novella, Walking, records the conversations of the narrator and his friend Oehler while they walk, discussing anything that comes to mind but always circling back to their mutual friend Karrer, who has gone irrevocably mad. Perhaps the most overtly philosophical work in Bernhard's highly philosophical oeuvre, Walking provides a penetrating meditation on the impossibility of truly thinking."--BOOK JACKET+-+27899517752562ocn043030723book20000.81Konzett, MatthiasThe rhetoric of national dissent in Thomas Bernhard, Peter Handke, and Elfriede JelinekCriticism, interpretation, etc"In this book Matthias Konzett examines three writers, Peter Handke, Elfriede Jelinek, and the late Thomas Bernhard who have dominated the Austrian - and to some extent even the German - literary scene during the past three decades. All the three have written numerous successful novels and plays, and rank presently among the most performed and discussed authors on the German stage. Handke, Bernhard, and Jelinek are rarely seen as fully politically motivated authors, perhaps because their sophisticated aesthetics has invited discussions of form and has resulted in critical neglect of their complex stances on such public issues as nationhood, critical memory, and cultural identity, issues that are of great importance in their works [...] Konzett focuses on the new literary strategies with which the three authors attempt to instill in their readers a critical self-awareness of nation and cultural identity." -- Book jacket+-+K9578662062393ocn000802381book19700.79Botond, AnnelieseÜber Thomas BernhardCriticism, interpretation, etc2364ocn048754110book20020.81A companion to the works of Thomas BernhardCriticism, interpretation, etcBiography+-+8167866206+-+8115955596+-+8115955596Fri Mar 21 15:47:58 EDT 2014batch110195
