Hiob : Roman eines einfachen Mannes by Joseph Roth( Book )

214 editions published between 1930 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hiob" war Roths erster durchschlagender Erfolg als Autor - und bildet zusammen mit dem ein Jahr später erschienenen "Radetzkymarsch" auch den künstlerischen Höhepunkt seines Schaffens: Der kleine Lehrer Mendel Singer erfährt großes Leid, wendet sich gegen seinen Gott und findet erst in Amerika am Ende seines Lebens nach der wundersamen Wiedervereinigung mit seinem totgeglaubten Sohn wieder zurück zu seinem Glauben. Nicht nur stellt der "Roman eines einfachen Mannes", so der Untertitel, dabei ein exemplarisches Schicksal dar, sondern ist gleichzeitig ein Denkmal für die vernichtete Kultur des ostjüdischen Shtetls. Der Text folgt der Buchausgabe von 1930. Nachwort und ein vollständig neuer Kommentar geben Hilfen zum Verständnis besonders des jüdischen Hintergrundes

Die Kapuzinergruft by Joseph Roth( Book )

182 editions published between 1938 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Familiengeschichte der Trottas wird in Joseph Roths Romanen zum Sinnbild für die untergehende Habsburger Epoche. In "Die Kapuzinergruft" begleitet der Leser über 25 Jahre hinweg den in den Tag hineinlebenden Nichtsnutz Franz Ferdinand Trotta und wankt mit diesem durch das vom Ersten Weltkrieg gebeutelte Europa. Wie die Habsburger Monarchie fällt Trotta im Kriegswahnsinn immer tiefer, bis er inmitten der Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten vor den Scherben seines Lebens steht. Aufgewachsen unter der Herrschaft einer strengen Mutter, wird das Leben des jungen Franz Ferdinand Trotta von den Wirren des Ersten Weltkriegs gelenkt. Nach der Versetzung als Fähnrich nach Ostgalizien steigt er zum Leutnant auf. Zuvor heiratet er übereilt, zum Ehevollzug bleibt keine Zeit. Mit zwei Freunden gerät er schließlich in Kriegsgefangenschaft. Während die Freundschaft auf der Flucht zerbricht, offenbart Franz Ferdinands Frau in der Heimat ein für die Ehe folgenschweres Geheimnis. Und das ist nicht die letzte Krise, die Kriegsheimkehrer Trotta bevorsteht. Im ständigen Kampf Trottas in und nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg spiegelt Joseph Roth auf eindrückliche Weise das voranschreitende Ende der Habsburger Monarchie und das Überleben in der Phase zwischen den beiden Weltkriegen
Right and left ; The legend of the holy drinker by Joseph Roth( Book )

58 editions published between 1929 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wandering Jews by Joseph Roth( Book )

20 editions published between 1976 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the mid-1930s, as anti-Semitism crested and Roth fled Germany for what he thought were safer climes in Paris, he became increasingly desperate and hobbled by alcoholism. He had tremendous difficulties securing a German publisher, and his powerful 1937 preface, written for what he hoped would be the second edition of The Wandering Jews and included here, was never published in his lifetime."--Jacket
Report from a Parisian paradise : essays from France, 1925-1939 by Joseph Roth( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and German and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Roth, the greatest newspaper correspondent of his age, left the splintering Weimar Republic for France in 1925 and produced, until his death in 1939, some of the finest writing of his career. Collected here for the first time, Roth's essays form an unrivaled portrait of France in the late 1920s and 1930s - a society at a twentieth-century crossing point - resolute in its desire to preserve a past that was already crumbling while at the same time drawn to the seductive rhythms of urban life. Roth describes a world where the center could not hold - a portrait of a country unknowingly barreling toward social collapse and political anarchy."--Jacket
The hundred days by Joseph Roth( Book )

36 editions published between 1935 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Napoleon's return to the throne in Paris, as imagined by the incomparable Joseph Roth. Set during the infamous period between Napoleon's escape from Elba and his second defeat and recapture at Waterloo, The Hundred Days describes the great Emperor's last shot at glory and his final transformation from a godlike ruler into an ordinary, humble man. Roth frames the novel through the perspectives of Napoleon himself as well as his devoted Corsican laundress Angelina, to show the demise of their seemingly intertwined fates. The Hundred Days is enriched with Roth's signature lyrical elegance and haunting atmospheric details"--

Hotel Savoy by Joseph Roth( Book )

104 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Still bearing scars from the gulag, a freed POW wanders across Russia to an industrial town in Eastern Europe. In its massive Hotel Savoy, he meets a surreal case of characters - the dancer Stasia, a former factory owner obsessed with winning the lottery, and a host of cigar-puffing plutocrats and Slav revolutionaries - waiting in vain for something to happen: the return from America of a tycoon named Bloomfield. Like Europe itself in 1932, the hotel is the stage upon which characters follow fate to its tragic destination."--Jacket

Der Antichrist by Joseph Roth( Book )

30 editions published between 1934 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long out of print in English, this dizzying hybrid of novel, essay, and polemic has less to do with religion than with what Roth sees as the disintegrating moral fabric of the modern world Written while Roth was in exile from Germany and his native Austria following the rise of Nazism, this work was composed in cafés across free Europe after all his works in German went up in flames. Such events no doubt influence the apocalytic tones of The Antichrist's protaganist, J.R., a journalist hired by an inscrutable media mogul hellbent on expos
