Faber ist die vollkommene Verkörperung der technischen Existenz, die sich vor dem Zufall und dem Schicksal sicher glaubt. Diesen Faber, der das fünfzigste Lebensjahr schon uberschritten hat, lässt [den Autor] systematisch mit der aussertechnischen Welt, der Selbstmord seines ehemaligen Freundes im Dschungal von Mexiko - das bringt sein rational zementiertes Weltbild nicht ins Wanken. Erstshaft wird es erst bedroht, als Faber durch die Ereignisse zu einem Rechenschaftsbericht über seine eigene Vergangenheit gezwungen wird. Ein junges Mädchen verliebt sich in ihn. Es stellt sich heraus, dass es seine eigene Tochter ist, von deren Existenz er nichts gewusst hat. Hineingezogen in das Starkste, was das menschliche Leben an irrationalen Einbruchen zu beiten hat, bricht sein frohgemuter Rationalismus zusammen. [Das Autor] sieht sein verfehltes Leben and nimmt den Tod in seine Welt auf.-Darmstadter Echo

Martin Opitz (1597-1639) : Nachahmunspoetik und Lebenswelt( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in German and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of Martin Opitz on 23 December 1597, a colloquium took place in Görlitz involving a list of speakers as international as it was interdisciplinary. In line with the occasion, the conference essayed as comprehensive an account as possible of Opitz' work and the impact it had in its day. The guiding principle underlying the papers presented here was a concept of 'life-world' as »perceived reality in which social groups and individuals not only act and behave but also themselves produce reality through their thinking and actions« (Rudolf Vierhaus). In the context of the early modern age, however, such construction of reality took place in text varieties of a highly circumscribed nature, structured by traditional and normative concepts. The textual and perceptive patterns themselves are not however geared to concepts of 'reality' or 'authenticity' such as those formulated later in history but to a form of reality represented by binding standards. The various contributions range from systematic studies to the history of genres and perennial themes, while others concentrate on individual works. Common to them all is a concern to cast new light on the keynote subject of the conference. As such they open up new avenues for exploring the life and work of this 'father of German literature'
