Kapital: Roman (German Edition)
Sebald's unusual style has been described as its own genre : dense and slightly old-fashioned, it still captivates the reader and leads them on a fascinating journey through the history of Europe. A photo posted by L. The year - when Berlin Alexanderplatz was published - was the highpoint of the Weimar Republic, before it all came tumbling down with the Wall Street Crash.
Berlin was like no other city in the late s: diverse, liberal, and often debauched. This iconic novel narrates the story of ex-convict Franz Biberkopf who, after being released from prison in Berlin, swears that he will live an upstanding and decent life. He is soon, however, plunged into the capital's louche but exhilarating underworld. In Imperium, a vegetarian nudist from Nuremberg sets sail for a South Pacific island to set up a religion worshipping coconuts and the sun.
Sounds like absurdist fiction? In this witty and ironic book, Kracht - one of modern German literature's most elusive figures - tells more than just the surprising yet true story of this extreme figure. Effi Briest is a young girl from traditional Prussian noblility, who is married off to a considerably older official. Although a devoted servant to the state, her husband is less loving towards his wife, which leads to great problems. This poignant work is seen as one of the great German realist masterpieces, and a beautiful yet tragic story of two people caught up in the shackles of society.

10 German books you have to read before you die
I went to school in Germany and we never read anything by women. Hopefully the school system will adapt and choose to but more books by women on the list. However, we cannot forget that these books really ARE important and that they shouldn't be left out only to ensure gender equality. There are two sides of everything.
Maybe there could be another list of "10 German books written by women to read before you die" as well, the we would have both sides and more good stuff to read. Become a Member or sign-in to leave a comment.
