"In a quaint Austrian ski resort, things are not quite what they seem. Hermann, the manager of a paper mill, has decided that sexual gratification begins at home. Which means Gerti - his wife and property. Gerti is not asked how she feels about the use Hermann puts her to. She is a receptacle into which Hermann pours his juices, nastily, briefly, brutally. The long-suffering and battered Gerti thinks she has found her saviour and love in Michael, a student who rescues her after a day of vigorous use by her husband. But Michael is on his way up the Austrian political ladder, and he is, after all, a man." "In Elfriede Jelinek's mitteleuropa, love is as distant from sex as the Alps are from the sea, and the everyday mechanics of husband, wife, and child become a loveless horror. Both a condemnation of the myth of romantic love and an angry defence of women's sexuality, Lust is pornography for pessimists." "A bestseller throughout Europe, Lust confirms Elfriede Jelinek as the most challenging writer - female or male - in Europe today. It is a dark, dazzling performance."--BOOK JACKET

"Auch in diesem Roman der österreichischen Autorin fasziniert das buchstäblich unheimliche Talent, Alltagsgeschichten auf den Grund zu gehen. Welche Entfaltungsmöglichkeiten hat eine Arbeiterin? Sie kann einen Mann heiraten, der ihr den gesellschaftlichen Aufstieg garantiert. Doch wie andere Möglichkeiten, so sind auch sozial attraktive Männer rar, und die attraktivsten sind schon vergeben. So setzt zwischen zwei "Liebhaberinnen" ein Konkurrenzkampf auf Leben und Besserleben ein, der mit Wucht ausgetragen wird." --Publisher description

In den Alpen : drei Dramen by Elfriede Jelinek ( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in German and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das St ck In den Alpen handelt von einem der schlimmsten Unfl̃le der s̲terreichischen Nachkriegsgeschichte. Bei einer Brandkatastrophe im Tunnel von Kaprun verbrennen in der Gletscherbahn 155 Menschen, die zum Skilaufen aufs Kitzsteinhorn und dessen "ewigen" Gletscherfirn aufgebrochen waren. Elfriede Jelinek stellt Originaltexte aus der Zeit des fr hen Alpinismus dagegen, aus einer Aufbruchsphase, in der die Alpen noch nicht als Sportereignis, sondern als Natur wahrgenommen wurden, als elitr̃es Erlebnis, das den Massen verschlossen blieb - und einer Minderheit. Denn die Geschichte des Alpinismus war seit ihren Anfñgen auch eine Geschichte des Antisemitismus - die "reinen" Berge durften von den "Bewohnern der Ebene" nicht ber hrt werden. In Einsch ben aus Paul Celans ber hmtem Gesprc̃h im Gebirg wird dieser ewige Ausschluss fassbar. Im Dramolett Der Tod und das Md̃chen 3, einer Paraphrase auf Rosamunde, zu der Schubert die Musik schrieb, versucht die Autorin, ihre Existenz als Schriftstellerin zu fassen. Es ist der 3. Teil ihrer Prinzessinnendramen (Schneewittchen, Dornrs̲chen, Rosamunde). In Kaprun steht auch eines der grs̲sten Speicherkraftwerke der Welt. Ein Ort s̲terreichischer Nationalidentitt̃, errichtet auf den Gebeinen der im Gebirge gett̲eten Zwangsarbeiter, Kriegsgefangenen und ehemaligen Nazis, mit deren Hilfe es nach dem Krieg weitergebaut wurde, bis zu seiner Vollendung 1955, im Jahr des Staatsvertrags. Das Werk ist ein St ck u ber den Arbeiter, der parodistisch und allegorisiert auftritt, als Hansel und Tretel, Geissenpeter und Heidi

A collection of five dramas, in which Jelinkek deals with the myths of fairy tales and today's media world.
