"Un homme en fuite trouve refuge sur une île déserte. Un lieu étrange, dominé par une villa immense et somptueuse dont les sous-sols recèlent une machinerie aux fonctions incompréhensibles. L'île, pourtant, n'est pas si déserte qu'elle l'a semblé de prime abord. Des estivants, réunis sur place par un certain Morel, s'engagent dans une fête languide dont le rituel paraît se reproduire à l'infini." [Source : 4e de couv., tirage 2012]

Ein Kind unserer Zeit : Roman by Ödön von Horváth( Book )

9 editions published in 1940 in French and German and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Horváths letzter Roman "Ein Kind unserer Zeit" spielt während einer Diktatur zwischen zwei Kriegen. Erschienen ist das Werk postum 1938. Der Erzähler ist von Beruf Soldat und identifiziert sich auf ganzer Linie mit den Anschauungen des Nationalsozialismus. Der Einzelne zählt für ihn nicht, er ist lediglich Teil des "Volkskörpers". Krieg steht für den Soldaten als "der Vater aller Dinge". Pazifismus lehnt er radikal ab. Seinen eigenen Vater verachtet er für dessen Humanismus und das "süße Leben", welches jener vor dem ersten Weltkrieg führen durfte. Der Soldat war lange arbeitslos und musste hungern. Im Militär sieht er seine Bestimmung. Trotzdem er sich in ein Mädchen verliebt, zögert er nicht, die Stadt zu verlassen, um als einer von vielen sogenannten Freiwilligen auf martialische Weise ein kleines Land zu überfallen. Bei einem Gefecht wird sein Hauptmann getötet . Er selbst wird verletzt und damit wehrdienstunfähig. Mit dem Abschiedsbrief des Hauptmanns macht er sich auf den Weg zu dessen Witwe

Jugend ohne Gott by Ödön von Horváth( Book )

10 editions published between 1939 and 1982 in French and German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in exile while in flight from the Nazis, this dark, bizarre evocation of everyday life under fascism is available for the first time in thirty years. This last book by Ödön von Horváth, one of the 20th-century's great but forgotten writers, is a dark fable about guilt, fate, and the individual conscience. An unnamed narrator in an unnamed country is a schoolteacher with "a safe job with a pension at the end of it." But, when he reprimands a student for a racist comment, he is accused of "sabotage of the Fatherland," and his students revolt. A murder follows, and the teacher must face his role in it, even if it costs him everything. Horváth's book both points to its immediate context--the brutalizing conformity of a totalitarian state, the emptiness of faith in the time of the National Socialists--and beyond, to the struggles of individuals everywhere against societies that offer material security in exchange for the abandonment of one's convictions. Reminiscent of Camus' The Stranger in its themes and its style, Youth Without God portrays a world of individual ruthlessness and collective numbness to the appeals of faith or morality. And yet, a commitment to the truth lifts the teacher and a small band of like-minded students out of this deepening abyss. It's a reminder that such commitment did exist in those troubled times--indeed, they're what led the author to flee Germany, first for Austria, and then France, where he met his death in a tragic accident, just two years after the publication of Youth Without God. Long out of print, this new edition resurrects a bracing and still-disturbing vision."--Publisher's website
