Grimms Wörter : eine Liebserklärung by Günter Grass( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Brüder Grimm erhalten im Jahr 1838 einen ehrenvollen Auftrag: Ein Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache sollen sie erstellen. Voller Eifer machen sie sich ans Werk. Aberwitz, Angesicht, Atemkraft - fleißig sammeln sie Wörter und Zitate, in wenigen Jahren sollte es zu schaffen sein. Barfuß, Bettelbrief, Biermörder - sie erforschen Herkommen und Verwendung, sie verzetteln sich gründlich. Capriolen, Comödie, Creatur - am Ende ihres Lebens haben Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm nur wenige Buchstaben bewältigt. Günter Grass erzählt das Leben der Brüder Grimm auf einzigartige Weise als Liebeserklärung an die deutsche Sprache und die Wörter, aus denen sie gefügt ist. Er schreibt über die Lebensstationen der Märchen-Brüder, über ihre uferlose Aufgabe und die Zeitgenossen an ihrer Seite: Familie und Verleger, Freunde, Verehrer und Verächter. Spielerisch-virtuos spürt Grimms Wörter dem Reichtum der deutschen Sprache nach und durchstreift die deutsche Geschichte seit der Fürstenherrschaft und den ersten Gehversuchen der Demokratie. Von der Vergangenheit mit ihren politischen Kämpfen und ganz alltäglichen Sorgen schlägt Günter Grass manche Brücke in seine eigene Zeit
The tin drum by Günter Grass( Book )

9 editions published between 1959 and 1999 in German and French and held by 11 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

Ein Schriftsteller reist 1969 durch die Bundesrepublik - und führt Tagebuch. Längst gehört der Wahlkampf von 1969 der Geschichte an. Viele Schriftsteller und Intellektuelle haben damals Partei ergriffen und Wählerinitiativen angeregt - allen voran Günter Grass. Jahre später hat er seine damaligen Tagebuchnotizen dazu benützt, seinen Kindern das Engagement für die SPD, für seinen Freund, den Emigranten Willy Brandt, und gegen den damaligen Bundeskanzler und ehemaligen Nationalsozialisten Kiesinger zu erklären. Das war nur mit Rückblicken in die Vergangenheit möglich

The meeting at Telgte by Günter Grass( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1647, as the Thirty Years' War was drawing to its close, a group of poets from all parts of Germany gather at the pilgrimage town of Telgte, for the purpose of strengthening the last remaining bond within a divided nation: its language and literature. They meet and part in disarray, yet manage to discuss their manuscripts with all the liveliness of friendship and force of rivalry, against a background of brutality and anguish ... The fictitious meeting of 1647 is the replay of a real meeting of German poets and writers, known as Group 47, at the end of another devastating war three hundred years later"--Cover

Cat and mouse by Günter Grass( Book )

3 editions published between 1961 and 2004 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the publication of his first novel, The Tin Drum, Günter Grass was acclaimed internationally as the most imaginative and powerful novelist to come out of postwar Germany. Cat and Mouse has the same setting that The Tin Drum made famous: Danzig and its petty bourgeoisie. But the art form is deliberately different. Brief and compact, it focuses on the extraordinary fate and person of one hero, Joachim Mahlke, fourteen years old when the story starts. Mahlke is set apart from his fellows by an unusual excrescence of cartilage, a huge Adam's apple, sign and symbol of precocious virility, at once embarrassing and stimulating to its bearer. When a classmate sics a cat on Mahlke's "mouse," he unwittingly launches him on a hero's career. In order to compensate for his mouse, Mahlke turns himself into an athlete and ace diver who brings up from a half-submerged ship all kinds of hardware to string around his neck. He becomes "The Great Mahlke," first to his classmates and later to the nation. Mahlke's mentors, however, refuse to be impressed. For the cat watching him, ready to pounce, is a society of petty men. Not even by gaining his country's highest honor, the Order of Merit, the most dazzling piece of hardware to cover his protuberance, does Mahlke succeed in conciliating his enemies. Mahlke is different, Mahlke is doomed. With ferocious virtuosity, Gunter Grass maps the local and mental circumstances of Mahlke's dramatic and pathetic struggle, compelling the reader's participation and belief."--Jacket
