Stiller : roman by Max Frisch( Book )

553 editions published between 1938 and 2018 in 29 languages and held by 3,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arrested and imprisoned in a small Swiss town, a prisoner begins this book with an exclamation: "I'm not Stiller!" He claims that his name is Jim White, that he has been jailed under false charges and under the wrong identity. To prove he is who he claims to be, he confesses to three unsolved murders and recalls in great detail an adventuresome life in America and Mexico among cowboys and peasants, in back alleys and docks. He is consumed by "the morbid impulse to convince," but no one believes him. This is a harrowing account part Kafka, part Camus of the power of self-deception and the freedom that ultimately lies in self-acceptance. Simultaneously haunting and humorous, I'm Not Stiller has come to be recognized as "one of the major post-war works of fiction" and a masterpiece of German literature. -- Amazon
Homo faber : ein Bericht by Max Frisch( Book )

575 editions published between 1957 and 2017 in 36 languages and held by 2,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faber ist die vollkommene Verkorperung der technischen Existenz, die sich vor dem Zufall und dem Schicksal sicher glaubt. Diesen Faber, der das funfzigste Lebensjahr schon uberschritten hat, lasst [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 Rechenscchaftsbericht uber seine eigene Vergangenheit gezwungen wird. Ein junges Masdchen 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

Man in the Holocene : a story by Max Frisch( Book )

107 editions published between 1979 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stunning tour de force, Man in the Holocene constructs a powerful vision of our place in the world by combining the banality of an aging man's lonely inner life and the objective facts he finds in the books of his isolated home. As a rainstorm rages outside, Max Frisch's protagonist, Geiser, watches the mountain landscape crumble beneath landslides and flooding, and speculates that the town will be wiped out by the collapse of a section of the mountain. Seeking refuge from the storm in town, he makes his way through a difficult and dangerous mountain pass, only to abandon his original plan and return home. A compelling meditation by one of Frisch's most original characters, Man in the Holocene charts Geiser's desperate attempt to find his place in history and in the confusing and fragile world outside his window

Bluebeard : a tale by Max Frisch( Book )

81 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. med. Felix Schaad stand in Verdacht, mit seiner Krawatte seine ehemalige Frau Rosalinde Zogg erdrosselt zu haben. Für den Staatsanwalt steht das Motiv fest: Eifersucht. Der Staatsanwalt will Schaad für zehn Jahre ins Zuchthaus schicken, doch das Gericht erkennt auf Freispruch. "Was meinen Blaubart betrifft: Schaad weiß nicht, was er unter Schuld versteht, und er ist nicht der einzige, der das heute nicht weiß, glaube ich. Schaad hat ein latentes Schuldgefühl. Vor Gericht wird ihm ein Delikt unterstellt, das er nicht begangen hat. Er weiß, dass er nicht der Täter gewesen ist, aber er kann nicht sagen: Ich bin unschuldig. ... Für mich geht es in diesem etwas schauerlichen Buch zentral um die Frage von Schuld - Unschuld in einem Fall, wo die Schuld nicht belegbar ist durch die Tat. ... Ich habe den Kriminalfall so durchschnittlich wie möglich gewählt, damit er nicht das Interesse abzieht, denn nicht dieser Kriminalfall hat mich interessiert, sondern die Technik der Wahrheitsfindung, das Gericht als Beispiel ..." (Aus einem Gespräch zwischen Max Frisch und Günter Kunert)

Andorra : a play in twelve scenes by Max Frisch( Book )

167 editions published between 1864 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 1,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play is set in the tiny principality of Andorra in southwestern Europe. The story revolves around a young boy, Andri, who is brought up as the Jewish adoptive son of the town's Teacher, who claims to have rescued him as a child from the neighbouring, anti-semitic "Blacks" (implying Blackshirts). However, it is revealed during the first half of the play that the story of Andri's origin is a lie: he is the illegitimate child of the Teacher and the Señora, a lady from the Blacks, and Andri is not a Jew. When the play starts, Andri is engaged to the Teacher's daughter Barblin, who he has grown up with and who (unbeknownst to him) is his half-sister. While the Teacher tries to ensure they do not marry, Andri becomes the center of anti-semitism first from his fellow town members and later from invading Black forces--Wikipedia.com

Montauk by Max Frisch( Book )

154 editions published between 1975 and 2018 in 18 languages and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tentative réussie de donner au texte autobiographique (le "journal") la dimension de l'imaginaire et donc la portée du roman. Principaux thèmes abordés: les brèves rencontres amoureuses, les problèmes littéraires et politiques, etc. On entend ici la voix unique d'un narrateur dans la soixantaine, dont la confidence "détachée" a pour cadre une plage de l'Etat de New York
