The black spider by Jeremias Gotthelf( Book )

494 editions published between 1861 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 1,895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An NYRB Classics Original. It is a sunny summer Sunday in a remote Swiss village, and a christening is being celebrated at a lovely old farmhouse. One of the guests notes an anomaly in the fabric of the venerable edifice: a blackened post that has been carefully built into a trim new window frame. Thereby hangs a tale, one that, as the wise old grandfather who has lived all his life in the house proceeds to tell it, takes one chilling turn after another, while his audience listens in appalled silence. Featuring a cruelly overbearing lord of the manor and the oppressed villagers who must render him service, an irreverent young woman who will stop at nothing, a mysterious stranger with a red beard and a green hat, and, last but not least, the black spider, the tale is as riveting and appalling today as when Jeremias Gotthelf set it down more than a hundred years ago. The Black Spider can be seen as a parable of evil in the heart or of evil at large in society (Thomas Mann saw it as foretelling the advent of Nazism), or as a vision, anticipating H.P. Lovecraft, of cosmic horror. There's no question, in any case, that it is unforgettably creepy"--

"Das literarische Werk, die amtlichen Tätigkeiten, das pfarrliche, pädagogische und politische Engagement des Schweizer Schriftstellers Jeremias Gotthelf (Albert Bitzius, 1797--1854) sind in den vergangenen Jahren wieder in das Zentrum der literaturwissenschaftlichen Forschung gerückt. Seit 2004 erarbeiten Barbara Mahlmann-Bauer und Christian von Zimmermann mit einem Editionsteam die neue "Historisch-kritische Gesamtausgabe" der Werke und Briefe. Innerhalb von 10 Jahren sind nicht allein die ersten, umfassend kommentierten Editionsbände zu den Predigten des Pfarrers, zur politischen und volkspädagogischen Publizistik entstanden, sondern vielfältige neue Blicke auch auf das erzählerische Werk gerichtet worden. Der vorliegende Band trägt vor diesem Forschungshintergrund neue Studien zu Leben und Werk von Jeremias Gotthelf zusammen. Die in der Kommentierungsarbeit erschlossenen theologischen, kirchlichen, schulgeschichtlichen, politischen und literarischen Kontexte werden für neue Schlaglichter auf das Gesamtwerk und die exemplarische Analyse bekannter Einzeltexte wie "Leiden und Freuden eines Schulmeisters", "Die schwarze Spinne", "Das Erdbeeri Mareili" oder "Die Frau Pfarrerin" genutzt."--Page 4 of cover
