We, the drowned: a novel by Carsten Jensen( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1848, a motley crew of Danish sailors sets sail from the small island town of Marstal to fight the Germans. Not all of them return-and those who do will never be the same. Among them is the daredevil Laurids Madsen, who promptly escapes again into the anonymity of the high seas.This is also the story of the port town of Marstal, Denmark, whose inhabitants sailed the world from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the Second World War and about the women and children they left behind. The novel tells of ships wrecked and blown up in wars, of places of terror and violence that continue to lure each generation with their cannibals, shrunken heads, prophetic dreams, forbidden passions, cowards, heroes, tragedies, and miraculous survivals.The result is a brilliant seafaring novel, a gripping saga encompassing industrial growth, the years of expansion and exploration, the crucible of the first half of the twentieth century, and most of all, the sea.Hailed in Europe as an instant classic, We, the Drowned, spanning four generations, two world wars, and a hundred years, is an epic tale of adventure, ruthlessness, and passion destined to take its place among the greatest seafaring literature
Wir Ertrunkenen : Roman by Carsten Jensen( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in German and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carsten Jensen erzählt in "Wir Ertrunkenen" von Menschen, deren Leben vom Meer bestimmt ist: von Männern, die ihrer Sehnsucht nach Freiheit und Abenteuer folgen, und von Frauen, die dem Meer, das ihnen die Männer und Söhne raubt, den Kampf ansagen. "Wir Ertrunkenen" ist ein pralles, buntes Buch voller phantastischer, komischer und nachdenklicher Geschichten. Alles beginnt im Jahr 1848, als der Seemann Laurids Madsen aus Marstal in den Himmel fliegt und unversehrt wieder zur Erde zurückkehrt. Der Tod hat ihn noch nicht gewollt. Später wird er sagen, seine Stiefel seien zu schwer für ein Leben da oben gewesen. Seither ist Laurids eigenartig, und irgendwann verschwindet er auf den Weltmeeren. Seine Stiefel bleiben zurück, bis sein Sohn Albert sie anzieht. Er macht sich auf den Weg in die Südsee, um seinen Vater zu suchen. Mit dem Schrumpfkopf von James Cook und dem Geheimnis der Geldvermehrung kehrt er als Reeder zurück in seine Heimatstadt. Er weiß, dass im neuen Jahrhundert die Zukunft in den Frachträumen der großen Segelschiffe liegt. Von Marstal aus sollen noch mehr Schiffe in See stechen. Doch Albert hat nicht mit den Frauen gerechnet. Sie hassen das Meer, das ihnen ihre Männer und Söhne genommen hat und immer wieder nimmt. Eine von ihnen nimmt den Kampf auf. "Da Carsten Jensen ein ungemein gewiefter Autor ist und die Kunst des dramatischen Pathos beherrscht, das dem Leser den Atem verschlägt, ist dieses Buch in all seiner Schönheit und all seinem Kitsch der Inbegriff eines Schmökers, es ist der Schmöker dieses Herbstes." Urban Halle in Deutschlandradio "Das literarische Denkmal einer kleinen Welt inmitten einer großen und grenzenlosen." Ulrich Baron in der Literaturbeilage der Süddeutschen Zeitung "Dieses Buch ist spannend und unterhaltsam. Ein Schmöker". Urban Halle in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
