Read 1913 - Der Sommer des Jahrhunderts Online Free - 1913 Die Geschichte eines ungeheuren Jahres

Virtuos entfaltet Florian Illies das Panorama eines unvergleichlichen Jahres, in dem unsere Gegenwart beginnt. In Literatur, Kunst und Musik werden die Extreme ausgereizt, als gäbe es kein Morgen. Proust sucht nach der verlorenen Zeit, Malewitsch malt ein Quadrat, Benn liebt Lasker-Schüler, Strawinsky feiert das Frühlingsopfer, Kirchner gibt der Metropole ein Gesicht, Kafka, Joyce und Musil trinken am selben Tag in Triest einen Cappuccino - und in München verkauft ein österreichischer Postkartenmaler namens Adolf Hitler seine biederen Stadtansichten. 1913: Anfang und Ende, Triumph und Melancholie verschmelzen, alles wird Kunst. Nach diesem Sommer ist nichts mehr, wie es war. Wie kein anderer erweckt der elegante Stilist Florian Illies mit leisem Humor den Zauber eines Schlüsselmoments der Kulturgeschichte zum Leben.

This is a book to be read in 2013, as a Centennial celebration of that year during which the arts lived in great excitement before they boiled over. There is still time to celebrate the succession of events, episode and snippets that peppered that year of aesthetic fertility. Illies has traced the...

1913: Thomas Mann's drama Fiorenza is a debâcle, to his eternal chagrin; Kafka's marriage proposal to Felice is a debâcle, to his eternal relief; Hugo von Hofmannsthal sees nothing but debâcle in Austrian high aristocracy, total cultural bankruptcy and Vienna at the mercy of the rabble; and Rilke...

Audiobook through Kindle Unlimited. An interesting look at the world before everything changed. Some politicians, psychiatrists, artists, and writers are showcased in this book. Snippets of their lives make up the month to month chapters like what is happening between Freud and Jung, Duchamp, Kafk...

Ein-Satz-Review Beschränkter Horizont (viel Berlin, Wien, ein Happen Paris und zwei Sätze Amerika - ausserdem nur Kunst mit einem Löffelchen Politik), klischierte Künstlervorstellung (Trakl, ach, schreibt sich zu Tode, Thomas Mann, deutscher Bourgeois, feiert seinen Erfolg), kumpelhaft-augenzwinke...

1913 is a history book unlike every other one I ever read. As the title says it is about the year 1913. There is a chapter for each month but the history is not told as one would except it, relating political events and stating how they lead to other events, in this the Great War. 1913 uses a dif...

Bit of a strange book - it's a 'history' of 1913 told month by month, but it's history told through the lives of various members of the (mainly) artistic groups centred in Germany and Austria. I'd never heard of some of the characters so I was forever googling - and Illes certainly has some fasci...

Imagine a monthly magazine devoted to, not the vapid celebs of Hollywood, but the best-known artists and writers of Europe (plus a few from England, various intellectuals and scientists, and some hangers-on). Every month you’d dive into the details, and emerge knowing everything that was worth kn...

Eine Fleißarbeit? Oder doch eine beeindruckende Gesamtschau eines Jahres, das von großer Bedeutung für die europäische Geistesgeschichte ist? Illies hat auf jeden Fall eine Menge an Material zusammengetragen, das er witzig, sarkastisch oder auch manchmal mit einem sardonischen Lächeln präsentiert...

çok hoş bir kitap. büyük savaşın başlamasından önce o devrin bilindik isimlerinin neler yaptığını ay ay, parça parça ve kısaca anlatıyor. kah kokoshka ile alma aşkını anlatıyor, kah trakl'ın adım adım çöküşünü, kafka-felice ilişkisini ve mann'ın büyülü dağ'ı yazmaya karar verişini... özellikle bi...
