The tin drum by Günter Grass( Book )

23 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in French and German and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed as the greatest German novel written since the end of World War II, The Tin Drum is the autobiography of thirty-year-old Oskar Matzerath who has lived through the long Nazi nightmare and who, as the novel begins, is being held in a mental institution. Willfully stunting his growth at three feet for many years, wielding his tin drum and piercing scream as anarchistic weapons, he provides a profound yet hilarious perspective on both German history and the human condition in the modern world

The flounder by Günter Grass( Book )

15 editions published between 1977 and 1997 in French and German and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixième roman de Günter Grass. Longue épopée comique dont le héros immortel raconte sa traversée des siècles en compagnie de onze femmes. Pour l'auteur, cette oeuvre est l'histoire de notre alimentation depuis quatre mille ans. Quant au turbot du titre, il est lui-même immortel; c'est le conseiller du héros (et en quelque sorte "l'esprit de l'univers"). Ce turbot navigue à merveille dans le roman-fleuve de Günter Grass, lequel a voulu par ailleurs signifier que, demeurant un écrivain engagé (socialiste), il n'en considère pas moins le langage politique comme un langage secondaire

Une Rencontre en Westphalie by Günter Grass( Book )

5 editions published between 1981 and 1999 in French and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pour souligner le vingtième anniversaire du Groupe 47, un rassemblement d'écrivains allemands (Peter Weiss, Heinrich Böll, Günter Grass, etc.) venus d'horizons divers, mais tous bien décidés à assurer "le renouveau allemand par la reconquête d'une langue", l'auteur a écrit ce roman qui se déroule au milieu du XVIIe siècle et dont le personnage principal est bien entendu la langue. Un groupe de poètes faméliques se rassemblent dans une auberge borgne pour déclarer la guerre à la mélancolie, aux dialectes et aux sabirs. Verve, finesse, érudition et aimable paillardise. Dans le contexte québécois l'oeuvre prend un relief particulier
