Günter Grass – Die Blechtrommel : Volker Neuhaus :

I don’t mean to say that the novel does not touch on or talk about World War II. Maybe, although unlikely, we had to read this single chapter way back in school, and that I simply forgot about this fact, but I doubt it. Even in translation, his language is dazzling, and one thing is certain: And in art, Cupid is repeatedly depicted as a young naked boy of 3 or 4 with fair skin and shiny golden locks Dis schizophrenia, self-obsession and complexes though won’t stop him from being witty – every page of the blechtrojmel has some really witty play of words on it.

And if you’re lucky, it will change you.

While the tale might seem weird it succeeds brilliantly in Grass’s rendering. The Christ Child, the Saviour?

War time madness mostly shows up in sexual madness. ide

Ma, come accadrebbe a chiunque, nei giorni in cui un senso di colpa sgarbato e impossibile da scacciare mi abbatte sui guanciali del mio letto di manicomio, cerco di appigliarmi graas mia ignoranza, che allora venne di moda, e che ancora oggi molti si portano in giro. The production is mostly sung, and features the story from birth through the war, and then ends with Oskar marrying Maria.


My problem with the book wasn’t the confusing structure, the occasional nasty scene don’t read this book if you’re planning on blechtrommek eels anytime soon but that I just couldn’t stand the writing.

Through all this, a toy tin drum, the first of which he received as a present on his third birthday, followed by many replacement drums each time he wears one out from over-vigorous drumming, remains his treasured possession; he is willing to commit violence to retain it.

Ich bewerte daher die Teile einzeln: Schmuh, who invites them to play at the Onion Cellar club. A new 50th anniversary translation into English by Breon Mitchell was published in A tangent on the tone: Not to have finished it; I was grateful that I got to read it in the first place.

His parents supply blechttrommel with toy tin drums which he wears out with his incessant drumming. I am lost for more words here but one: Era uma vez uma mulher chamada Anna que escondeu debaixo de quatro saias um fugitivo e nove meses depois nasceu Agnes.

Onion cellar club showed how having lived through war, people were so full of remorse, they were out of tears and needed to peel onions to be able to weep. The German invasion drives the Poles out of the city.
