Download Stahlstiche: 33 Einreden aus 35 Jahren (German Edition) by Fritz J. Raddatz,Ijoma Mangold PDF

By Fritz J. Raddatz,Ijoma Mangold

Glosse und Buchbesprechung, Essay, Portrait und Interview – die Formen, derer sich Fritz J. Raddatz journalistisch bedient, sind so vielfältig wie seine Tonarten und Interessen, und so eröffnet «Stahlstiche» ein Spektrum, in dem sich das ganze 20. Jahrhundert mit seinen Erfahrungen wiederfindet. Politische Ideen, Literatur und Kunst: der Weltkrieg und das Verhältnis der beiden deutschen Staaten, die Rolle Brechts und die Kontroversen um Grass, Apartheid, Pazifismus, Wiedervereinigung ... Aus der Fülle der Themen sind eine Reihe klassischer Zeitungsstücke aus der Glanzzeit des deutschen Feuilletons hervorgegangen, Stücke, wie nur Raddatz sie schreiben konnte. Hat ein anderer Journalist die Wiedervereinigung so begleitet wie er, isoliert innerhalb der Linken, zugleich hellsichtiger im politischen Urteil durch die eigenen Erfahrungen in Ostberlin? Hat ein anderer so entschieden nach zwanzig Jahren moralische Bilanz gezogen? Gibt es noch Interviews wie die, die Fritz J. Raddatz mit Nadine Gordimer oder Alfred Hrdlicka geführt hat?
Das Buch faßt Raddatz’ publizistische Arbeit aus dreieinhalb Jahrzehnten zusammen und dokumentiert damit eines der großen journalistischen Lebenswerke der Nachkriegszeit. Als solches tritt es neben die 2010 erschienenen, vielfach gefeierten Tagebücher von Fritz J. Raddatz.

By Carolin Briegel

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, be aware: 1,0, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen, Veranstaltung: PSII - Adalbert Stifter: Kürzere Erzählungen, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Adalbert Stifters "Granit" ist die wohl bekannteste Erzählung aus der Sammlung "Bunte Steine". Die Bedeutung, die guy selbiger zumisst, ist indes sehr unterschiedlich. Während guy die Stifterschen Texte einerseits oft verharmlost und bagatellisiert oder den Erzählungen ein rein pädagogisches Anliegen unterstellt, finden sich andererseits in der Forschungsliteratur viele wissenschaftliche Positionen, die Stifter in den verschiedensten Bereichen der Literaturwissenschaft maßgebliche Bedeutung zukommen lassen.
Auch "Granit" wurde bereits unter vielen Gesichtspunkten analysiert. Oftmals wurde versucht, die Erzählung unter der Prämisse der Vorrede zu den Bunten Steinen zu lesen und das darin formulierte Sanfte Gesetz auf das Werk zu beziehen. Weniger häufig wurde der Versuch unternommen, die in der Erzählung inbegriffenen Ordnungssysteme herauszufiltern und zu interpretieren. Die vorliegende Hausarbeit wird versuchen, diese Idee aufzugreifen und auf Grundlage der innertextlichen Weltordnung einige Interpretationsansätze der Erzählung Granit hervorzuheben. Das Hauptaugenmerk wird dabei auf dem Thema der Orientierung innerhalb der Natur und des soziokulturellen Umfelds und der examine des in der Erzählung immer wieder thematisierten Stichworts der „Erinnerung“ liegen. Methodisch wird dabei ganz Stifters Idee zu folgen sein, dass sich das Kleine oftmals als Hinweis auf das Große offenbart. Demnach gilt es, aus dem auffälligen Detailreichtum der Stifter‘schen Erzählung Zeichen zu lesen und aus diesen einen übergeordneten Sinn zu deuten.

Begonnen wird mit der examine des Verhältnisses von Liebe und Verrat. Isoliert betrachtet magazine die Liebesgeschichte der beiden Protagonisten ein harmonisches Bild aufweisen, doch mit der Geschichte sind ebenso unlösbar Betrug und Verrat verbunden. Die wohl moralisch verwerflichste Tat stellt Isaldes Mordanschlag auf ihre Dienerin und Vertraute, Brangene dar.
Des Weiteren gilt es die höfischen Normen und Ideale im Kontext der Liebe zu skizzieren. Im Roman wird häufig darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass Tristrant und Isalde höfische Eigenschaften und Tugenden besonders herausragend repräsentieren.
