Pequena biografia
Joseph Roth werd in 1894 geboren in Brody in Galicië en diende tijdens de Eerste Wereldoorlog in het keizerlijk leger. Als journalist maakte hij vele reizen, onder meer in Rusland. Zijn politieke overtuiging dwong hem om Duitsland in 1933 voorgoed te verlaten. Nadien woonde en werkte hij afwisselend in Amsterdam en Parijs, in welke laatste stad hij in 1939 onder armoedige omstandigheden overleed.

I had somehow overlooked The Legend of the Holy Drinker, one of Roth’s last works (published posthumously in 1939, the year Roth died). There is an elegiac fable-like tone, although a mere recounting of the story sounds light and superficial: a homeless vagrant in Paris is given 200 francs by a mysterious stranger who requests that if the money is ever repaid, that it be given to the priest at the nearby church of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. Almost predictably, the man spends the money unwisely. Then, by a series of fortuitous events—are they lucky breaks or are they miracles?—more money comes to him. Twice. The story is concerned quite simply with what happens each time he comes into new money. But the simplicity of the story is belied by Roth’s enormous talent as a writer. What would have been unworthy of the time it took to read in the hands of many writers is here transformed into a deeply thoughtful, dry-eyed parable.… (mais)

Would I read another book by this same author?
Yes, but I would not put effort into hunting one of his books down.

Would I recommend this book?

Who would I recommend it to?
People interested in historical fiction that is focused on the life of military families in the period running up to the First World War.

Did this book inspire me to do anything?
I have not done anything yet, but it has urged me to do more reading on the history of Europe in the run-up to WWI.

The book traces the life of three generations of a family, specifically the lives of an artillery sergeant who saves the life of the Emperor, the sergeant's son and grandson. Their lives are used to present the prevailing social structure of the time, and the rules and protocol of both society and the army. Their lives show the nature of the old world order of monarchy, military honour, and upholding the existence of the Empire. Through their lives and careers the reader sees the decline and fall of that world order in the face of various pressures and challenges both within and from beyond the borders of the Empire. This was the time of nationalist ideas becoming stronger, and people starting be feel unhappy with their lot. WWI lasted from 1914 to 1918. This covers a period when revolution was in the air and many monarchies experienced disquiet amongst their people.

Laatste boek van deze auteur. Wordt beschouwd als een soort vervolg op "Radetskymars". Vooral de karaktertyperingen zullen me bijblijven: afwisselend bijtend-cynisch naar maatschappij en samenleving, dan weer empathisch sympathiserend met de "gewone man".
Ook de zinloosheid en de apathie van een tijdvak dat ten einde is gekomen, en de opkomst van een fascistische samenleving wordt subtiel aangegeven, maar niet benoemd.
