The splendor of Portugal by António Lobo Antunes( Book )

41 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Splendor of Portugal's four narrators are members of a once well-to-do family whose plantation was lost in the Angolan War of Independence; the matriarch of this unhappiest of clans and her three adult children speak in a nightmarish, obsessive gush to give us the details of their grotesque family life and its consequences. Like a character out of Faulkner's decayed south, the mother clings to the hope that her children will come back, save her from destitution, and restore the family's imagined former glory. The children, for their part, haven't seen each other in years, and in their isolation are tormented by feverish memories of Angola. The vitriol and self-hatred of the characters know no bounds, for they are at once victims and culprits, guilty of atrocities committed in the name of colonialism as well as innumerable humiliations and betrayals of their own kin."--P. [4] of cover

Er ist Psychiater in Lissabon, und er hasst sein Leben. Einen Tag lang versammelt er all die Dämonen, die ihn bedrängen: die Arbeit in der Irrenanstalt Miguel Bombarda, sinnlos und menschenunwürdig; die Erinnerungen an die Familie, ein Paradebeispiel der portugiesischen Bourgeoisie samt ihrem zuckersüssen und repressiven Katholizismus; sein qualvolles Scheitern als Ehemann und Vater; die Erfahrung im Krieg in Angola. Am Ende wird klar, dass es für diesen Mann nur einen Weg geben kann, den Kontakt mit der Welt zu halten: das Schreiben. António Lobo Antunes wurde 1942 in Lissabon geboren. Er studierte Medizin, war während des Kolonialkrieges 27 Monate lang Militärarzt in Angola und arbeitete danach als Psychiater in einem Lissabonner Krankenhaus. Heute lebt er als Schriftsteller in seiner Heimatstadt. Lobo Antunes zählt zu den wichtigsten Autoren der europäischen Gegenwartsliteratur. In seinem Werk, das mittlerweile mehr als zwanzig Titel umfasst und in über dreissig Sprachen übersetzt worden ist, setzt er sich intensiv und kritisch mit der portugiesischen Gesellschaft auseinander. Er erhielt zahlreiche Preise, darunter den 'Grossen Romanpreis des Portugiesischen Schriftstellerverbandes', den 'Österreichischen Staatspreis für Europäische Literatur', den 'Jerusalem-Preis für die Freiheit des Individuums in der Gesellschaft' und zuletzt 2007 den Camões-Preis
Knowledge of hell by António Lobo Antunes( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The narrator of this stark and elegantly translated novel is a psychiatrist named Antnio Lobo Antunes, returning from vacation to his loathed job at Miguel Bombarda Hospital in Lisbon. Over the course of the trip, the narrator's mind ranges over the monstrosities he encountered in the colonial wars in Angola in the 1970s and in his work; through the layering of memories, he draws parallels between the destruction of the war and the questionable care offered to the mentally ill

Connaissance de l'enfer by António Lobo Antunes( Book )

44 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1973 kehrte Lobo Antunes aus dem Krieg in Angola zurück, wo er als Militärarzt über zwei Jahre lang schlimmstes Leid und Elend sah - und doch hat ihn nichts darauf vorbereitet, was er nun als Psychiater in der Irrenanstalt Miguel Bombarda erlebt. Erst hier bietet sich ihm ein >>Einblick in die Hölle<<. Auf der Fahrt von der südlichen Algarveküste, wo er einen ärztlich verordneten Urlaub verbrachte, zurück nach Lissabon versucht er sich darüber klarzuwerden, was passiert ist. Als Kind schon wollte er Psychiater werden, um die Erwachsenen besser zu verstehen, aber von Verständnis ist er weiter entfernt denn je. Abgrundtiefer Haß erfüllt ihn: auf die Ärzte, die den Kranken jede Würde nehmen, sie mittels Elektroschock und Insulinkoma stillstellen, statt ihnen zu helfen. Und Haß auf sich selbst, weil er sich angepaßt hat. Einen Tag und eine Nacht lang fährt er durch Portugal, von der Küste durch die Berge und Dörfer des Alentejo zu den Sümpfen vor der Hauptstadt, und die Erinnerungen an die Klinik, an den Krieg, an seine gescheiterten Beziehungen zu zwei Frauen, an seine beiden Töchter stürmen immer ungeordneter auf ihn ein, vermischen sich mit den Gerüchen, Farben und Formen der Landschaft, bis die Grenze zwischen Realität und wahnhaften Gewaltvisionen verschwimmt. In seiner metaphernreichen und drastischen Sprache klagt Lobo Antunes die Unmenschlichkeit des Menschen an und evoziert zugleich ein Sein jenseits des Elends. Denn sein Haß speist sich aus einer unendlichen Liebe zu seinem Land und den Menschen

Pedro Cabrita Reis : one after another, a few silent steps by Cabrita Reis( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the early nineteen nineties, the work of Pedro Cabrita Reis (born 1956 in Lisbon) has revolved around the subjects of homes, housing, architecture and territory. Alongside works based on such elements of everyday as tables and chairs, doors and windows, he also regularly creates installations which take possession of exhibition spaces by means of architectonic structures that are as complex as they are violent. With hulking brick walls, found objects and industrial materials such as neon tubes, sheets of glass, steel supports or coarse boards he undermines the classic white cube or unceremoniously occupies a large baroque ceremonial room with a series of shantytowns Crudely knocked together house boxes such as The Project (2002) deny a look inside; doors lead nowhere, staircases into nothingness. Blind Cities is the title of a group of works whose stoic, melancholy appearance references the "homelessness" of humanity as a basic constant of the human condition and thus to one of the leitmotifs of Cabrita Reis's oeuvre."--Publisher's website
