Summary ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Heinrich Böll Gruppenbild mit Dame Read & Download Ù 109 Germania contemporanea l'autore veste i panni del cronista mettendosi sulle tracce di tutti colori che l'hanno conosciuta dal fratello poeta che si distrugge per sottrarsi all'abiezione del nazismo a suor Rahel dall'affa. It is often the mark of a truly great book that style is at least as important as other aspects such a story line or character definition I have found this literary uality to be true in masterpieces by James Joyce Proust Faulkner Gaddis Gass Virginia Woolf and many other genius literary novelists In fact telling a tale in a new literary style distinguishes a good writer from a great one in my book So much so that I tend to discount straight ahead narrative styles as mundane and seek out novelists engaged in stylistic innovation Heinrich Boll is a novelist who wants to narrate in a new way He is focused upon German society during and after World War II when that nation was obliterated by Russian American British and French allies Boll s story is presented as a portrait of a lady Leni Pfeiffer against the backdrop of a group her friends family colleagues religious advisers and lovers The Author Au presents this portrait in such a way that we see the protagonist with incredibly precise brush strokes from the point of view of the Author making a bureaucratic inuiry of Leni and through his research we come to know her by way of what others tell him about her In this sense we also come to know the Group based upon their perspectives in their narrations about the lady Leni may well be one of the finest character studies of the 20th century because of the narrative style driving the story line The story itself primarily has to do with members of German society high and low as they cope with the advance of American and Russian troops toward the close of World War II inside Germany This time period was so intense that its impact became telling in the way it defined the characters by their wit intelligenceresourcefulness and integrity under pressure Boll introduces a cast at the outset as if the novel were a dramatic production To gain the most from your reading I would advise you to spend a few minutes understanding the players at the start and then refer back to them a few times as you move forward There are two Heinrich s for example in the cast and the Au likes to abbreviate the players so that they sometimes may seem unclear as references in the narration The author seems determined that you ll know his characters so well that you ll follow them even when he refers only to their initials William Gaddis took a similar approach when in JR he declined to define any of the speakers in his National Book Award Winning Novel Boll manages to create a 3D person from the 2D pages of his book in his narrative techniue and is able to drive a story line through his use of actual events in WWII in Germany The view from inside Germany during its capitulation is intriguing as told by Boll who fought in and lived through the war The intensity of human experience tends to ramp up exponentially of course when an Au has witnessed first hand what Boll actually saw inside Germany during WWII At first I was a bit taken aback by the literary style and translation but with a modicum of patience it drove me into interiors of consciousness of the group and the lady in an uncommonly penetrating narrative Of course Boll became a Nobel Prize Winner and leading light within PEN International in large part because of the densely rich and enlightening narrative style of this novel If you like literary novels then odds are you will love this one I would consider it a masterpiece by virtue of its invention in literary style

Summary ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Heinrich Böll Gruppenbild mit Dame Read & Download Ù 109 Uesto romanzo di Boll offre uno spaccato di cinuant'anni di vita tedesca dall'età guglielmina al secondo dopoguerra Nella sua indagine su Leni donna sensuale e di carattere che attraversa gli eventi più drammatici della. Apparently this is the novel that was singled out by the Nobel Prize committee when analysing B ll s work up to this point describing it as his most grandly conceived work of which I wouldn t argue From what I ve of read him thus far this is certainly the most challenging and broadest in scope as by tracing Leni Pfeiffer s life through half a century of German history he paints with such scrutinizing detail a portrait of a woman a city and a nation But I asked myself on completion did I prefer it to The Clown Billiards at Half Past Nine or And Never Said a Word and the conclusion is no Two main reasons why first certain parts of it dragged on too long for me it felt like walking up an escalator that was heading in the opposite direction And second he at times indulges in sort of sentimental whimsiness to my surprise and forces a too easy optimistic conclusion to his story If I push these issues aside though I still found much to like about it mostly down to the fact that B ll has seldom moved any distance from writing realistic narratives of his homeland He has shown less aptitude and interest in experimenting than many other writers who are left their mark on modern literature in Germany and elsewhereThough she rents out rooms Leni Pfeiffer 48 faces eviction from her apartment in Cologne She cannot keep her creditors away and as a war widow with her only son is in jail for forging checks to get her off the hook she cannot hold on without his income Her total indifference to profit and property are anomalous The building she is in doesn t yield enough income her roomers are foreign laborers and despite the fact she has lived here all her life that she s known the landlord for thirty years that his grandson was her son s godfather when he was christened at the tail end of the war times are changing and loyalties shift Folk gossip about Leni as a loose woman because she has taken up with one of her renters yet she has had only four lovers in her nearly 50 years including a love affair with a Russian prisoner and much of the novel tells this tale But with a difference To paint what he pretends is a purely factual portrait of Leni B ll himself appears in the book as The Au the Author working as a combination investigative reporter sociologist and detective In this guise he interviews the sixty characters who know or have known Leni at various points in her life and what emerges from this wry pseudo documentary is also a social portrait of Cologne from the 1920 s to his present a Joycean style evocation of a city and its assorted people B ll gathers his material to exhibit that even in Germany life goes on under the surface and the lies of history despite the concussive power of ideologies and individual rapacity By taking a biographical route he dramatizes the impossibility of generalizing about people and makes us feel the vast gaps that exist between political slogans and moral actualities between those who slyly ride with the times and those like Leni who could possibly lose their wealth their family and social position B ll s decision to put a woman at the heart of Group Portrait with Lady could be seen as a direct expression of his strong erotic and moral affection for women which could be the result of a previously blocked energy due to the anger he so often feels toward German men and masculine society in general In a way compared to his earlier novels Group Portrait with Lady can be seen as his anti novel and the I think about it the it closely resembles a researched report It s an impressive work for sure and maybe his best achievement but that doesn t mean it s my favourite
