In "Hölderlin", Peter Weiss recreates the life and revolutionary times of one of Germany's greatest and most influential poets, Frederich Hölderlin. 'I wanted,' Weiss wrote, 'to describe something of the conflict that arises in a person who suffers to the point of madness from the injustices, the humiliations in his society, who completely supports the revolutionary upheavals, and yet does not find the praxis with which the misery can be remedied ...' As Robert Cohen notes in his introduction, 'As a theater of the senses, Hölderlin is a successor to Marat/Sade.'

The leavetaking by Peter Weiss( Book )

52 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in German and English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I was on my way to look for a life of my own." A brilliant, brutally honest autobiographical novel, long out of print, from one of the great artistic polymaths of the 20th century. This is a Sebaldian account of the narrator's attempt to break free of a repressive upper-middle-class upbringing and make his way as an artist and individual, written in a single incantatory paragraph. Leavetaking is the story of an upper-middle-class childhood and adolescence in Berlin between the wars. In the course of the book, Weiss plumbs the depths of family life: there is the early death of his beloved sister Margit, the difficult relationship with his parents, the fantasies of adolescence and youth, all set in the midst of an increasing anti-Semitism, which forces the Weiss family to move again and again, a peripatetic existence that only intensifies the narrator's growing restlessness. The young narrator is largely oblivious to world events and focused instead on becoming an artist, an ambition frustrated generally by his milieu and specifically by his mother, who, herself a former actress, destroys his paintings during one of the family's moves. In the end, he turns to an older mentor, Harry Haller, a fictionalized portrait of Hermann Hesse, who encouraged and supported Weiss, and with Haller's example before him, the narrator takes his first steps towards a truly independent life. Intensely lyrical, written with great imaginative power, Leavetaking is a vivid evocation of a world that has disappeared and of the narrator's developing consciousness. THE NEVERSINK LIBRARY champions books from around the world that have been overlooked, underappreciated, looked askance at, or foolishly ignored. They are issued in handsome, well-designed editions at reasonable prices in hopes of their passing from one reader to another--and further enriching our culture"--

6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Weiss (1916-1982) was virtually unknown in the mid-1960s when Peter Brook made Marat/Sade into a film. The weaving of time, space, plot, real-and-imagined characters, sexual liberation, and surrealist imagery made Marat/Sade a sensation. Little did audiences realize that this counterculture classic was written by a German Jew. At that time, Weiss was also at work on a play about Auschwitz: The Investigation. These two dramas are in this volume along with The Shadow of the Body of the Coachman. All are cogently introduced and edited by Robert Cohen

"Inferni" è la prima traduzione italiana di alcuni saggi di Peter Weiss, sicuramente uno dei più importanti scrittori tedeschi degli anni '60/'70. Questi saggi nascono da un confronto, estremamente insolito e interessante, fra la Divina Commedia e l'universo nazista. Scritti nel momento in cui si tenevano in Germania i grandi processi contro i criminali del regime hitleriano, i saggi riuniti in Inferni prendono l'opera di Dante come spunto per un'interrogazione sul rapporto fra l'esperienza individuale, la congiuntura politica e lo statuto dell'arte. Redatti in una prosa assolutamente scarna e nitida, sono come cristalli in cui si riflette la fortissima tensione fra l'impegno politico e il disagio da cui nasce la scrittura. La raccolta contiene anche un frammento drammatico, un dialogo immaginario tra Dante e Giotto
