Publikace: The Reader - Schlink, B.. Originally published in Switzerland and gracefully translated into
English by Carol Brown Janeway, The Reader is a brief tale about
sex, love, reading and shame in post-war Germany. Michael Berg is
15 when he begins a long, obsessive affair with Hanna, an enigmatic
older woman. He never learns very much about her and when she
disappears one day, he expects never to see her again. But, to his
horror, he does. Hanna is a defendant in a trial related to
Germany's Nazi past and it soon becomes clear that she is guilty of
an unspeakable crime. As Michael follows the trial, he struggles
with an overwhelming question: what should his generation do with
its knowledge of the Holocaust? "We should not believe we can
comprehend the incomprehensible, we may not compare the
incomparable... Should we only fall silent in revulsion, shame, and
guilt? To what purpose?" The Reader, which won the Boston Book
Review's Fisk Fiction Prize, wrestles with many more demons in its
few, remarkably lucid pages. What does it mean to love those
people--parents, grandparents, even lovers--who committed the worst
atrocities the world has ever known? And is any atonement possible
through literature? Schlink's prose is clean and pared down,
stripped of unnecessary imagery, dialogue and excess in any form.
What remains is an austerely beautiful narrative of the attempt to
breach the gap between Germany's pre and post-war generations,
between the guilty and the innocent and between words and silence. Publikace: The Reader - Schlink, B.. For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. The woman in question is Hanna, and before long they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused. For Hanna is not all she seems. Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realize that the person in the dock is Hanna. The woman he had loved is a criminal. Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense. But then suddenly, and terribly, it does - Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret. Hailed for its coiled eroticism and the moral claims it makes upon the reader, this mesmerizing novel is a story of love and secrets, horror and compassion, unfolding against the haunted landscape of post-war Germany.
When he falls ill on his way home from school, fifteen-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover. She enthrals him with her passion, but puzzles him with her odd silences. Then she inexplicably disappears.
When Michael next sees ... The film stars Ralph Fiennes and Kate Winslet and is directed by Stephen Daldry. The release date is currently quoted as 12th December 2008. Orion Publishing Co: "Schlink's novel has a wondeful clarity of style that serves to emphasise the moral com
