On the natural history of destruction by W. G Sebald( Book )

57 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is acclaimed German novelist Sebald's investigation of one of the least examined "silences" of our time. He examines the devastation of German cities by Allied bombardment, and the reasons for the astonishing absence of this unprecedented trauma from German history and culture. This void is in part a repression of things--such as the death by fire of the city of Hamburg at the hands of the RAF--too terrible to bear. For Sebald, this is an example of deliberate cultural amnesia; his analysis of its effects in and outside Germany has already provoked angry and painful debate. It addresses questions that arise when communities must heal from self-inflicted wounds. This book is a study of suffering and forgetting, of the morality hidden in artistic decisions, and of both compromised and genuine heroics.--From publisher description
Campo Santo by W. G Sebald( Book )

73 editions published between 2003 and 2020 in 13 languages and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These sixteen moving essays contain Sebald's trademark themes--the power of memory and personal history, the connections between images in the arts and life, the existence of ghosts in both places and artifacts. Four essays pay tribute to Corsica, weaving elegiacally between past and present on the Mediterranean isle. In "A Little Excursion to Ajaccio," Sebald visits the birthplace of Napoleon and muses on the hints of a great man's future in his childhood home. Several essays on European writers such as Kafka. Nabokov, and Gunter Grass blend criticism with political observation and memoir, examining how literature can be an attempt at restitution for the injustices of the real world. Dazzling in its erudition, accessible in its deep emotion, Campo Santo confirms Sebald's place beside Proust and Nabokov, great writers who perceived the invisible connections that determine our lives

Unrecounted : 33 poems by W. G Sebald( Book )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: A gorgeous illustrated poetry collection by W.G. Sebald: "An extraordinarily handsome edition of poems by the late great writer" (Confrontation). Unrecounted combines thirty-three of what W.G. Sebald called his "micropoems"--Miniatures as unclassifiable as all of his works-with thirty-three exquisitely exact lithographs by one of his oldest friends, the acclaimed artist Jan Peter Tripp. The lithographs portray, with stunning precision, pairs of eyes-the eyes of Beckett, Borges, Proust Jasper Johns, Francis Bacon, Tripp, Sebald, Sebald's dog Maurice. Brief as haiku, the poems are epiphanic and anti-narrative. What the author calls "time lost, the pain of remembering, and the figure of death" here find a small home. The art and poems do not explain one another, but rather engage in a kind of dialogue. "The longer I look at the pictures of Jan Peter Tripp," Sebald comments in his essay, "the better I understand that behind the illusions of the surface, a dread-inspiring depth is concealed. It is the metaphysical lining of reality, so to speak."

Urban visions : experiencing and envisioning the city by Steven Spier( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modern city that was initiated by the great, violent forces unleashed by the industrialisation of Europe in the late eighteenth century is the city we still inhabit today: not so much in its physical form, but in the condition and sometimes affliction of being urban. The question of what kind of city we are trying to have is an urgent one as the world continues its dramatic urbanisation. Urban Visions presumes that an understanding of our urban experience is a prerequisite for envisioning what the city could be. The contemporary city is a place of contested ownership and authorship. This book accepts that visions, which are currently more articulate in disciplines and media other than architecture and planning, need not always be utopian, heroic or grand. But our experience of the city does occur in something material that is designed - be it by architects, planners, or more often and anonymously larger societal or cultural forces. It is an intricate construction in which physical, cultural, commerical, historical, ideological and personal presences can coincide. The city must embrace, and its representations must reflect, the wealth or possible experiences of it. In assembling work by distinguished authors from different disciplines and countries, Urban Visions offers a patient examination of what urban experience is and of the city's necessity, with explicit and implicit propositions about what it could be. -- From cover flap
