Literature & religion : Pascal, Gryphius, Lessing, Hölderlin, Novalis, Kierkegaard, Dostoyevsky, Kafka by Walter Jens( Book )

5 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great visions of Gryphius, Lessing, Holderlin, and Novalis, visions of peace, freedom, and humanity, have not been refuted. They were simply not realized in the modem era and they point to a different future ... the lofty intellectuality and morality of Pascal the Catholic as well as the radical Christianness of Kierkegaard the Protestant have to be taken in here just as much as the mystical depth of Dostoyevsky the Russian and the enigmatic darkness of Kafka the Jew. The eclipse of God, the subsequent twilight of the gods, the downfall of the modem pseudogods can be followed by a new morning in a paradigm of postmodernity (a name for what is as yet unknown). Yes, let us look forward. If I read the signs of the times rightly, toward the end of our century rebellion against the Kafkaesque world is everywhere afoot ... Literature and religion in one: a theme of hope for a new futurean era that can bring forth literature in which great theology and great aesthetics enter once again into an exemplary intimacy. --Hans Küng, from Literature and Religion

My Shadow in Dachau : poems by Dorothea Heiser( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concentration camp at Dachau was the first established by the Nazis, opened shortly after Hitler came to power in 1933. It first held political prisoners, but later also forced laborers, Soviet POWs, Jews, and other "undesirables." More than 30,000 deaths were documented there, with many more unrecorded. In the midst of the horror, some inmates turned to poetry to provide comfort, to preserve their sense of humanity, or to document their experiences. Some were or would later become established poets; others were prominent politicians or theologians; still others were ordinary men and women. This anthology contains 68 poems by 32 inmates of Dachau, in 10 different original languages and facing-page English translation, along with short biographies. A prologue by Walter Jens and an introduction by Dorothea Heiser from the original German edition are joined here by a foreword by Stuart Taberner of the University of Leeds. All the poems, having arisen in the experience or memory of extreme human suffering, are testimonies to the persistence of the humanity and creativity of the individual. They are also a warning not to forget the darkest chapter of history and a challenge to the future not to allow it to be repeated. Dorothea Heiser holds an MA from the University of Freiburg. Stuart Taberner is Professor of Contemporary German Literature, Culture, and Society at the University of Leeds

Seven last words by Joseph Haydn( )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yaara Tal ist eine Herausforderung geglückt. Diese Klavierfassung der Sieben letzten Worte von Joseph Haydn bietet fast nur langsame Sonatensätze. Eine bescheidene Pianistin beschwört keine Bravourliteratur hervor, sondern sie bevorzugt die sachten Töne. Hier kann sie ihre riesige Ausdruckspalette regelrecht aufblättern. Es langweilt nie. Es ist immer erzählend, den Letzten Worten kann man immer folgen, kann mitfühlen. Yaara Tal versteht es, diese Welt von Schmerz und Leid und auch Hoffnung beängstigend nahe zu bringen und zeigt, wie weit Haydn hier seiner Zeit in einigen Passagen voraus war, denn zwischen den opernhaften Floskeln, die vorkommen, finden sich immer Abschnitte, die schon weit in die Romantik reichen - gerade in der Klavierfassung wird das besonders deutlich" (kulturradio.de)
