Rüdiger Görner: Georg Trakl. Dichter im Jahrzehnt der Extreme

Auch hundert Jahre nach seinem Tod ein Geheimnis: Georg Trakl.  Rüdiger Görner geht dem Mythos nach.

Kurz nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs starb Georg Trakl in einem Militärspital an einer Überdosis Kokain. Ob der im Krieg traumatisierte Dichter Selbstmord beging, ist eines der Rätsel, die sein Leben und Werk umgeben.

Rüdiger Görner gelingt es, sich den biographischen Brüchen und Details über das Werk anzunähern. Er geht in der Auseinandersetzung mit den Gedichten der Todessehnsucht Trakls, der mehr als innigen Beziehung zu Schwester Margarethe und dem Aufwachsen in Salzburg nach. Und kommt zu faszinierenden Schlüssen: Dass sich die Extreme der Zeit – die Beschleunigung der Lebensverhältnisse, ihre rücksichtslose Technisierung – im Werk des Dichters nur bedingt spiegeln. Und dass die Gedichte – Trakls Ruhelosigkeit zum Trotz – oft geradezu ausgeruht klingen.

Rüdiger Görner, geboren 1957 in Rottweil, ist Professor für Neuere Deutsche und vergleichende Literatur an der Queen Mary University of London. Gründer des Ingeborg Bachmann Centre for Austrian Literature und Gründungsdirektor des Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations. Träger des Deutschen Sprachpreises, des Reimar Lüstpreises der Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung und des Verdienstordens der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Bei Zsolnay erschienen Rainer Maria Rilke. Im Herzwerk der Sprache (2004), Georg Trakl. Dichter im Jahrzehnt der Extreme (2014) und Oskar Kokoschka. Jahrhundertkünstler (2018).

Antonin Artaud – Le Visionnaire Hurlant par Laurent Vignat

Breton, Eluard, Aragon, Cocteau, Picasso, Chanel, Abel Gance, Anaïs Nin, Colette, Diego Rivera, Lacan, Desnos, Van Gogh, Sartre et Beauvoir, plus tard Jim Morrison et Patti Smith…

Ces noms jalonnent la trajectoire d’Antonin Artaud, comète colérique qui a irrigué l’avant-garde artistique et littéraire de l’entre-deux-guerres et irrigue encore notre époque.

Par-delà le cliché de l’aliéné, du mythe du poète fou auteur d’une oeuvre monumentale, cette biographie s’attache à souligner le caractère novateur, toujours d’actualité, de son message : Artaud a imaginé le cinéma en relief, oeuvré à un profond renouvellement de l’art théâtral, rejeté le colonialisme européen, remis en cause les idéologies mortifères du XXe siècle, dénoncé le capitalisme et ses impératifs productivistes, esquissé l’altermondialisme.

Après neuf ans d’internement, il est aussi celui qui a fait vaciller la psychiatrie, ses catégories et sa thérapeutique des électrochocs. Plus que jamais, dans notre époque incertaine, Antonin Artaud est une voix à faire entendre. Une biographie à lire comme un roman.

Né en 1970, Laurent Vignat poursuit des études de lettres à la Sorbonne et devient professeur de français. Il publie son premier roman en 2006, après quelques textes épars publiés dans des revues.
Sur des carnets, il saisit les bizarreries d’une société qu’il juge de plus en plus folle, ses contemporains, des sourires, des tics de langage et des bribes de vie qui deviennent, à force de travail et d’obstination, des histoires.

Quand il n’écrit pas, il fait la classe ; il pédale en côte chalonnaise ; il lit ; il observe ; il regarde ses enfants grandir ; il écoute son épouse ; il suit les doigts graciles de son fils lorsqu’ils filent une impro sur le piano du salon ; il prépare un osso bucco, il s’endort avec Bach ou Jarrett dans les oreilles…

Gertrude Stein: Roche

Was one who certainly was one really being living, was this one a complete one, did that one completely have it to do very well something that that one certainly would be doing if that one could be doing something.

Yes that one was in a way a complete one, certainly he was one completely listening. Was that one one completely listening, was that one completely listening and certainly it was a pleasant thing if this one was one completely listening and certainly this one was completely listening and certainly it was a pleasant thing having this one listening and certainly if this one were one being one really completely listening it would then certainly be a completely pleasant thing.

Was this one a complete one? Certainly this one was one being living. This one was one certainly going to be quite beautifully doing something if this one really did this thing and certainly this one would be sometime doing this completely beautiful thing if this one is really a complete one.

This one certainly is not one who is weakening, who is not continuing well in working. This one certainly is not at all a weak one, that is certain. This one is certainly feeling, in being one being living. This one is certainly an honest one and it is certainly a pleasant thing to have this one listening. Certainly this one does not do very much talking. Certainly this one is liking very well to be knowing what any one doing anything is doing, in what way any one doing anything is doing that thing. This one is one certainly loving, doing a good deal of loving, certainly this one has been completely excited by such a thing, certainly this one had been completely dreaming about such a thing. Certainly this one is one who would be very pleasant to very many in loving.

This one is perhaps one who is perhaps to be sometime a complete one. This one is perhaps one who is perhaps not to be ever a complete one. This one certainly was often listening and this was then certainly a very pleasant thing. This one was perhaps one completely listening, certainly this one was one who was listening and it was then a very pleasant thing, certainly if this one were one completely listening it would be then a completely pleasant thing.

This one certainly would be doing a very beautiful thing if this one did do that beautiful thing. This one would certainly be steadily working to be doing that beautiful thing. This one would certainly not be slackening, not be stopping going on working, not be weakening in working, in making that beautiful thing. This one would be making that beautiful thing. If this one were making that beautiful thing it would be a very satisfying thing. This one would certainly be one completely making a beautiful thing if this one did make a beautiful thing. This one was not a weak man, this man was not an unsteady man, this man was not an aspiring man, this man was one certainly going to be making a beautiful thing if he did make a beautiful thing. This one certainly was listening and this was a very pleasant thing, this one was certainly one going to be doing a beautiful thing if this one is one who is a complete one.

This one is certainly one to be doing a beautiful thing if this one is going to be doing that thing. It is not disturbing to be wondering about this one going to be doing the beautiful thing, not really disturbing to that one, not really disturbing to any one. This one is steadily working. This one is listening and that is a pleasant thing. If this one were complete in listening that would be a completely pleasant thing. This one certainly is one steadily working to be doing a beautiful thing, this one certainly will be doing a beautiful thing if this one does that beautiful thing. This one is very nearly completely needing to be knowing what any one is doing who is doing something, how any one who is doing something is doing that thing. Certainly if this one is one really completely listening and certainly perhaps this one is one completely listening then that is a completely pleasant thing.

Gertrude Stein: “Reflection on the Atomic Bomb”

They asked me what I thought of the atomic bomb. I said I had not been able to take any interest in it.

I like to read detective and mystery stories. I never get enough of them but whenever one of them is or was about death rays and atomic bombs I never could read them.

What is the use, if they are really as destructive as all that there is nothing left and if there is nothing there nobody to be interested and nothing to be interested about. If they are not as destructive as all that then they are just a little more or less destructive than other things and that means that in spite of all destruction there are always lots left on this earth to be interested or to be willing and the thing that destroys is just one of the things that concerns the people inventing it or the people starting it off, but really nobody else can do anything about it so you have to just live along like always, so you see the atomic [bomb] is not at all interesting, not any more interesting than any other machine, and machines are only interesting in being invented or in what they do, so why be interested.

I never could take any interest in the atomic bomb, I just couldn’t any more than in everybody’s secret weapon. That it has to be secret makes it dull and meaningless. Sure it will destroy a lot and kill a lot, but it’s the living that are interesting not the way of killing them, because if there were not a lot left living how could there be any interest in destruction.

Alright, that is the way I feel about it. They think they are interested about the atomic bomb but they really are not not any more than I am. Really not. They may be a little scared, I am not so scared, there is so much to be scared of so what is the use of bothering to be scared, and if you are not scared the atomic bomb is not interesting.

Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense. They listen so much that they forget to be natural. This is a nice story.

Antonin Artaud: Anthology

“I am the man,” wrote Artaud, “who has best charted his inmost self.” Antonin Artaud was a great poet who, like Poe, Holderlin, and Nerval, wanted to live in the infinite and asked that the human spirit burn in absolute freedom.

To society, he was a madman. Artaud, however, was not insane, but in luciferian pursuit of what society keeps hidden. The man who wrote Van Gogh the Man Suicided by Society raged against the insanity of social institutions with insight that proves more prescient with every passing year. Today, as Artaud’s vatic thunder still crashes above the “larval confusion” he despised, what is most striking in his writings is an extravagant lucidity.

This collection gives us quintessential Artaud on the occult, magic, the theater, mind and body, the cosmos, rebellion, and revolution in its deepest sense.

Vladimir Majakovski nieuwe uitgave van Verzamelde gedichten

Sinds de vertaling van Marko Fondse van Majakovski’s werken uitkwam, vijfentwintig jaar geleden, is diens poëzie niet meer weg te denken uit de Nederlandse boekhandel. De ongeëvenaarde lenigheid van de taal die Fondse wist aan te boren zette de dichter hier voorgoed op de kaart.

Met de ge-update versie van de poëzie van Majakovski zijn zijn beroemde poèma’s en andere gedichten nu weer beschikbaar. Het bekende Een wolk in broek en Mens, die dateren van voor de revolutie van 1917, laten de gepassioneerde (liefdes)dichter in optima forma zien. De grote gedichten Ik heb lief en Daarover, van na de revolutie, zijn twee positieve uitzonderingen op de socialistische poëzie waaraan Majakovski zijn dichterschap ten slotte offerde: daarin keert de bravoure van zijn vroege lyriek even terug.

Deze uitgave van Majakovski’s poëzie is voor de gelegenheid aangevuld met een grote hoeveelheid gedichten uit zijn enorme oeuvre. Vele daarvan verschenen niet eerder in Nederlandse vertaling. De herziening en uitbreiding zijn in handen van Majakovski-vertaler Yolanda Bloemen.

Alles waarvoor de dichter Vladimir Majakovski (1893–1930) hartstochtelijk leefde en werkte, de revolutie en de opbouw van het socialisme, is een eeuw na zijn geboorte grondig in diskrediet geraakt en ineengestort. Naar Majakovski’s socialistische poëzie kijkt bijna geen mens meer om. Wel wordt zijn voorrevolutionaire werk nog gelezen: de gedichten van Een wolk in broek tot en met Mens, een ding, met hun unieke mixtuur van lyrische, epische en dramatische kwaliteiten. Na 1917 wist Majakovski zich nog twee maal van zijn socialistische preoccupaties los te maken in de twee grote poëma’s Ik heb lief en Daarover (1921-1923).

Correspondence Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein

Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein. Few can be said to have had as broad an impact on European art in the twentieth century as these two cultural giants.

Pablo Picasso, a pioneering visual artist, created a prolific and widely influential body of work.

Gertrude Stein, an intellectual tastemaker, hosted the leading salon for artists and writers between the wars in her Paris apartment, welcoming Henri Matisse, Ernest Hemingway, and Ezra Pound to weekly events at her home to discuss art and literature.

It comes as no surprise, then, that Picasso and Stein were fast friends and frequent confidantes. Through Picasso and Stein’s casual notes and reflective letters, this volume of correspondence between the two captures Paris both in the golden age of the early twentieth century and in one of its darkest hours, the Nazi occupation through mentions of dinner parties, lovers, work, and the crises of the two world wars. Illustrated with photographs and postcards, as well as drawings and paintings by Picasso, this collection captures an exhilarating period in European culture through the minds of two artistic greats.

Susie Asado which is a told tray sure.
A lean on the shoe this means slips slips hers.
When the ancient light grey is clean it is yellow, it is a silver seller.
This is a please this is a please there are the saids to jelly. These are the wets these say the sets to leave a crown to Incy.
Incy is short for incubus.
A pot. A pot is a beginning of a rare bit of trees. Trees tremble, the old vats are in bobbles, bobbles which shade and shove and render clean, render clean must.

What is a nail. A nail is unison.

Dieser Bestseller aus dem Jahr 1931 führt den Leser mitten hinein in die pulsierende Metropole Berlin auf dem Höhepunkt der »Goldenen Zwanziger«.

Folgen Sie dem Autor bei seinen Ausflügen zu den Hotspots des damaligen Nachtlebens – in sagenumwobene Varietés und Tanzpaläste, in Vergnügungsparks und Kaffeehäuser, in angesagte Bars und Schwulenkneipen, aber auch an die Orte der Prostitution und des Verbrechens.

Erweitere Neuausgabe des Klassikers – mit Glossar, Register und vielen historischen Fotos.
»Wer Erlebnisse sucht, Abenteuer verlangt, Sensationen sich erhofft, der wird im Schatten gehen müssen.« Curt Moreck

Curt Moreck, 1888 als Konrad Haemmerling in Köln geboren, war ein Schriftsteller und Journalist, der in den 1920er Jahren seinen Schwerpunkt auf Kultur- und Sittengeschichte legte. Während der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus war das Werk Curt Morecks verboten, nach 1945 konnte er nicht mehr an seine früheren Erfolge anknüpfen. Er starb 1957 in Berlin.

James Joyce: Be Not Sad

 

Be Not Sad

Be not sad because all men
Prefer a lying clamour before you:
Sweetheart, be at peace again — –
Can they dishonour you?

They are sadder than all tears;
Their lives ascend as a continual sigh.
Proudly answer to their tears:
As they deny, deny.
