Dantzig, 1924. Le petit Oscar, enfant surdoué, voit le jour. Dès sa naissance, il trouve en face de lui deux pères possibles : l'un, Alfred, un allemand, époux légitime de sa mère, l'autre, Jan, un polonais, l'amant de celle-ci. Ne voulant pas accéder au monde des adultes, qui le répugne, Oscar décide de mettre fin à sa croissance. Tapi dans son enfance comme dans une cachette, une armure inviolable, Oscar devient un témoin attentif et railleur de tout ce qui se passe autour de lui. A ras du sol, il commente et ponctue de ses roulements de tambour une histoire qui est celle de sa famille, de sa ville natale et celle aussi de ce voisin redoutable qui terrifie et fascine ses compatriotes: le grand Reich allemand...(jaquette)

Oscar est né à Dantzig au début des années 1930, officiellement le fils d'un épicier allemand mais possiblement le rejeton d'un cousin polonais de sa mère. A trois ans, dégoûté par l'immoralité et la vulgarité des adultes, il a décidé de ne plus grandir. Muet de surcroît, il manifeste sa désapprobation par des cris et par de continuels battements sur un tambour jouet. Il traverse ainsi divers événements historiques: la montée du nazisme, l'invasion de la Pologne, la prise de Dantzig, la guerre et la défaite de l'Allemagne

Die Blechtrommel by Volker Schlöndorff ( Book )
5 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An intellectually challenging, visually stunning parable of modern society in violent transition--as narrated by Oskar Matzerath, one of the most unforgettably unique heroes of our time. Oskar is born into a world he never made and he hates what he sees. At three, decides to stop growing, then and there, and remain a three-year-old, alone, once and for all. The next two terrible decades of feast and famine, fascism and slaughter, he remains frozen in size, suspended in the outraged innocence of childhood. Oskar has two weapons to see him through the ordeal of modern history: his tin drum, which he bangs to drown out horror and hypocrisy, and his childish voice raised in a shriek piercing enough to break glass
