Die Erzählung, mit der Arno Schmidt sich als Autor etablierte: Die letzten Tagebuchaufzeichnungen eines deutschen Soldaten, dessen Flucht vor der Roten Armee auf einem zerschossenen Viadukt in einem Eisenbahnzug endet, hoch über der Neiße bei Görlitz.

Three novellas on Germany from the Nazi era through the postwar years. In Scenes from the Life of a Faun, a civil servant tries to forget the war by researching the exploits of a deserter during the Napoleonic Wars, Brand's Heath is on a returning prisoner-of-war, and in Dark Mirrors the lone survivor of atomic warfare discovers he is not alone, but instead of bringing joy this brings fear. The usual sharply observed detail and sarcastic asides from an erudite writer (1914-1979). By the author of Collected Novellas

Zettels Traum by Arno Schmidt( Book )

66 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vor 40 Jahren veröffentlichte Arno Schmidt sein wichtigstes Werk, "Zettel's Traum": 1334 DIN-A-3-Seiten stark, über zehn Kilogramm schwer und als Faksimile vervielfältigt. Schmidts eigene Befürchtung - "Es wird sich nicht mehr setzen lassen"--Hatte sich bewahrheitet. Vor dem komplexen Layout des dreispaltigen Romans mit seinen zahlreichen Randglossen kapitulierten Setzerei und Verlag. Nun endlich erscheint "Zettel's Traum", das Werk, das Arno Schmidt auf einen Schlag berühmt machte, als gesetztes Buch. Jahrelange Arbeit von Setzern, Editoren und Korrektoren war nötig, um einen lesefreundlichen Schriftsatz herzustellen, ohne den Charakter des "Überbuchs" (Arno Schmidt) zu verändern und seine Eigenheiten zu glätten. Mit dieser Ausgabe gilt es, einen Riesenroman neu zu entdecken: Er erzählt die Liebesgeschichte zwischen dem alternden Schriftsteller Daniel Pagenstecher und der sechzehnjährigen Franziska Jacobi und von Leben und Werk Edgar Allan Poes. Er entwirft eine eigene Literaturtheorie in der Nachfolge Sigmund Freuds und entwickelt wie nebenbei eine neue Rechtschreibung, die zum Beispiel die wahren Eigenschaften eines "Pleas'-see=Rocks" enthüllt. In "Zettel's Traum" finden Arno Schmidts Bemühungen um eine moderne Prosaform und eine angemessene sprachliche Abbildung des menschlichen Bewusstseins ihren vorläufigen Höhepunkt

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. Don't be content with belief: go further. Once more through the circles of knowledge friends! And foes. Don't interpret: learn and describe. Don't futurize: be. And die without ambitions: you were. At best full of curiosity."

Un homme vient d'être libéré d'un camp de prisonniers. Son nom ... monsieur Schmidt. On l'installe dans la remise à outils d'une maison où résident déjà deux jeunes réfugiées, Lore et Grete. Écrivain, il travaille à une biographie de Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué. L'univers de cet auteur romantique imprègne peu à peu le misérable logis et la forêt voisine. Même Lore, dont le narrateur est tombé amoureux, prend des traits surnaturels. Quoique amoureuse elle aussi, mais épuisée par les privations, elle accepte finalement de se marier avec un autre homme, âgé et fortuné. Resté seul sur le quai de la gare, le narrateur malheureux s'enivre de sa solitude, tandis que Grete l'attend à la maison, pleine d'espoir ... [source : couverture]
