By Terézia Mora
In Terézia Mora's earlier publication - Der einzige Mann auf dem Kontinent [The simply guy at the Continent] - we left Darius Kopp in an unsatisfied scenario. the pc community corporation he labored for - Fidelis - had simply merged with one other corporation, Opaco. Darius have been sole continental Europe consultant for Fidelis yet now those duties have been to be taken over by means of the employees of Opaco, established in Romania. Darius used to be made redundant. furthermore, his mom was once very in poor health in clinic. most significantly, plants, his spouse, had additionally misplaced her activity and had made up our minds to depart Berlin as soon as and for all and had long past to continue to exist a farm together with her good friend, Gaby, leaving Darius. The booklet ends with Darius arriving on the farm and telling plants that she is the single love of his existence. This novel opens a few eighteen months later. Darius resides in his condo yet is in a bad kingdom. We research after your time what occurred. vegetation had moved to a shack and have been dwelling on her personal, regardless of the negative iciness, vowing by no means to come to Berlin the place she had didn't locate appropriate employment. the subsequent might, she hanged herself. Darius used to be devastated and has stayed within his condominium ever on account that - it truly is now spring of the next 12 months - residing on pizza, alcohol and tv. before everything of the publication his pal, Juri, is making an attempt to assist Darius get his lifestyles again jointly and, particularly, get him a task either for his psychological healthiness and for his finances.
Juri has obtained Darius an interview yet issues don't move good, as he will get right into a struggle with a dwarf with a view to the interview and the police are referred to as. Darius now realises that he's no longer able to re-enter the place of work and makes a decision to trigger for japanese Europe, with the ostensible goal of burying Flora's ashes. We persist with Darius' trip yet, even as, we stick with Flora's magazine. Darius had chanced on this magazine however it used to be completely in Hungarian. He had had it translated into German - a hundred and fifty pages - and he's analyzing it on his trip East. (Mora divides the web page with a horizontal line, with Darius' trip on most sensible and Flora's magazine at the bottom.) Darius remains to be devastated via Flora's loss of life and on many events he imagines her with him and talks to the imaginary plants. The diary is devastating for Darius because it is obvious that plant life used to be very depressed, anything he was once nearly blind to. She had a tricky youth - her mom used to be an alcoholic and killed herself - she used to be sexually stressed and not was once capable of finding any activity commensurate together with her highbrow skill and aspirations. She had therapy for her melancholy - she provides many scientific info - and reflected suicide earlier than she eventually killed herself. particularly, so far as Darius was once involved the worst used to be that he was once slightly pointed out. a number of the names she merely pointed out by way of a unmarried preliminary. He appeared in useless for the preliminary D. The magazine used to be divided into separate records, with the name given purely in Hungarian, which diverse from an account of her youth to poems and diverse feedback approximately her existence. One dossier used to be known as kétségbeesésröl, this means that melancholy in Hungarian. Its is a quick dossier yet has a number of pithy fees akin to Arbeit ist das beste Mittel gegen Verzweiflung [Work is the easiest capacity opposed to despair]. and Die Masse der Menschen lebt in stummer Verzweiflung [The mass of fellows lead lives of quiet desperation.], the well-known quote from Thoreau's Walden. Flora's final struggle opposed to melancholy (presumably the monster of the name) is, as we all know, doomed to failure.
Meanwhile, we're following Darius on his trip, contemplating and chatting to plant life (in his brain) forever. He has a German's view of the peoples of the East. In Slovakia he sees a guy who appears very suspicious and wonders if the fellow goes to assault him and prepares his defence. whilst he realises that he has a puncture, he's certain that the fellow has performed it. In Hungary, he is going to Flora's birthplace and attempts to discover strains of her. he's puzzling over tips on how to bury her. He meets a guy known as Zoltan, with whom he turns into pleasant and whilst he asks Zoltan if he can simply bury her within the cemetery, Zoltan responds Keine Ahnung, sagte Zoltan. Aber hier ist alles Mögliche möglich. Wir sind schließlich keine Deutschen, comprehend? [No thought, acknowledged Zoltan. yet every little thing is feasible right here. in the end, we aren't Germans, understand?] he's charged €10,000 for burying the ashes yet they remain within the boot of his vehicle, as he travels from Budapest around jap Europe/Western Asia. He meets Oda in Albania and travels your time together with her, as she reminds him of plant life. He meets Doiv, an English girl. He is going to Croatia, Georgia, Armenia, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey. Is he trying to find peace and reconciliation? to discover himself? to discover Flora?
Der einzige Mann auf dem Kontinent [The simply guy at the Continent] was once an outstanding publication yet a bit tongue in cheek, as we watched Darius stumble in either his activity and private existence, with out being conscious of his failings. We had merely the slightest glimpses of Flora's melancholy. Darius was once a well-meaning if a bit inept guy. This publication has a truly various and much extra severe tone. either Darius and plant life (as good as Oda, whom we meet later) have been from Soviet bloc international locations (Darius was once from the previous East Germany), as was once Mora herself. This lack of the native land and the truth that neither of the couple particularly healthy into glossy Germany is a part of the tale. yet Mora's description of Flora' melancholy and Darius' response to it, as he reads her magazine, are masterful, as is Darius' try and reconcile Flora's melancholy and suicide together with his existence because it is now. This ebook deservedly gained the German e-book Prize in 2013 and i'm convinced that this booklet might be regarded as the most effective novels of the early twenty-first century.

Ab den fünfziger Jahren entstand in Westdeutschland mit der neu geschaffenen „documenta“ allmählich das Bild einer eigenständigen „Westkunst“. Unter neuen politischen Rahmenbedingungen bewegte sich die Kunstwelt zwischen Versuchen, an Vorkriegstraditionen anzuknüpfen und sich zu modernisieren. Es kanonisierten sich abstrakte Gegenwartstendenzen, welche in der Gegensatzspannung zum Osten zunehmend politisch instrumentalisiert wurden.

Demgemäß warnt er, nicht seine eigene Meinung in die Schrift zu interpretieren. 1 Daß in den hl. Schriften noch andere Wahrheiten gemeint sein könnten als der Wortlaut sagt, daß eine hermeneutische Theorie nicht nur zu lehren habe, was die Worte und Bilder der Schrift bedeuten, sondern wie hinter der primären Bedeutung ein tieferer Sinn zu finden ist diese Meinung kommt in Augustins Schrift gar nicht zur Sprache.
Die Kentnnis der traditionellen TypologieTechnik, die sich bei joachim in systematischer Anwendung, freilich auch in Um deutungen wiederfindet, wird die Klärung wesentlich erleichtern und kürzen. joachim hat die 7 Arten der typischen Auffassung nicht theoretisch und abstrakt formuliert, sondern nur durch Beispiele erläutert - wie ihm sehr oft das Beispiel die Definition vertritt. An diese Beispiele müssen wir uns also halten. Und zwar sind es zweimal dieselben alttestamentlichen Personen, an denen er die 7 Möglichkeiten von Beziehung zeigt: Agar und Sarah, Abrahams beide Frauen, die Dienerin und die Herrin (C.
