Sitara und der Weg dorthin; eine Studie über Wesen, Werk & Wirkung Karl Mays by Arno Schmidt( Book )

57 editions published between 1963 and 1998 in German and English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diese psychoanalytische Untersuchung des Werkes von Karl May war bei ihrem Erscheinen 1963 eine Sensation. Daß Karl May, den Ernst Bloch zu den besten deutschen Erzählern rechnete, als 'gewaltiger Pfuscher' erscheint, dessen Werk ein unerschöpfliches Chaos von Kitsch und Absurditäten bildet, mag noch heute Empörung und Abscheu provozieren. Doch wer die Ursachen für den Massenerfolg von Trivialliteratur wissen will, kommt an Schmidts textkritischem Essay nicht vorbei. Er deckt Seelenlandschaften des Erzählens auf, die gerade durch ihre Verborgenheit faszinieren. So projiziert Karl May, der uneingestanden Homosexuell, 'den menschlichen Hintern unter die Gestirne'

Zwei Männer, zwei Frauen, ein See - daraus formt Arno Schmidt eine der schönsten deutschen Liebesgeschichten. In der Zeit des Wirtschaftswunders machen Joachim und Erich, zwei ehemalige Kriegskameraden, ein paar Tage Urlaub am Dümmer See. Die Zuneigung zweier Erholung suchender Sekretärinnen erobern die beiden im Sturm. Der handfeste Malermeister Erich amüsiert sich mit seiner Annemie bei Preistanz und Sekt, während Joachim, ein mittelloser Schriftsteller, sein Glück mit Selma im Paddelboot zwischen den Schilfinseln des Dümmer findet. Wie Schmidt das dann folgende nächtliche Geschehen in den Betten der Pension schildert, hat ihm in den prüden 50er Jahren eine Anzeige wegen Pornographie eingebracht

The usual sharply observed detail and sarcastic asides from an erudite writer (1914-1979). By the author of Collected Novellas

The first in a four-volume collection of one of the most influential writers of post-World War II Germany, often called the German James Joyce. In Lake Scenery with Pocahontas, he writes: "Think.
