A major literary event, the publication of this masterly translation makes one of the towering works of twentieth-century German literature available to English-speaking readers for the first time. The three-volume novel The Aesthetics of Resistance is the crowning achievement of Peter Weiss, the internationally renowned dramatist best known for his play Marat/Sade. The first volume, presented here, was initially published in Germany in 1975; the third and final volume appeared in 1981, just six months before Weiss's death. Spanning the period from the late 1930s to World War II, this historical novel dramatizes anti-fascist resistance and the rise and fall of proletarian political parties in Europe. Living in Berlin in 1937, the unnamed narrator and his peers--sixteen- and seventeen-year-old working-class students--seek ways to express their hatred for the Nazi regime. They meet in museums and galleries, and in their discussions they explore the affinity between political resistance and art, the connection at the heart of Weiss's novel. Weiss suggests that meaning lies in embracing resistance, no matter how intense the oppression, and that we must look to art for new models of political action and social understanding. The novel includes extended meditations on paintings, sculpture, and literature. Moving from the Berlin underground to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War and on to other parts of Europe, the story teems with characters, almost all of whom are based on historical figures. The Aesthetics of Resistance is one of the truly great works of postwar German literature and an essential resource for understanding twentieth-century German history.… (mais)

Good god what can't Peter Weiss do?

Aesthetics of Resistance is a three volume work, but unfortunately for the Angloworld only Volume One has been translated into English. This is a travesty for political, socio-historical, ethical and aesthetic/cultural reasons. What he offers is not only an "historical novel" centered around the aesthetic education of 3 working class students coming of age in the tumultuous and politically volatile onset of WWII, it also provides a granular view of the populist clash between Communism, Socialism and Fascism, both political and psychological. It may as well serve as a syllabus for a master class on the History of Underdog Art, with incisive aesthetic criticism/commentary of the same.

My dudes, it bowled me over. While this volume provides more content than I could chew over in a lifetime, I am seriously considering shooting Joachim Neugroschel a personal email requesting galleys of Volumes 2 and 3.

I am convinced that now, more than ever, we need a nuanced understanding of the rise of Fascism that pays especial attention to its greatest victims and most (un)likely allies--the un and underemployed laborers, i.e. the poor and disenfranchised. Peter Weiss has an enormous amount to tell us about where we are and, I suspect, where we might be if the lessons of aesthetic resistance are learned. ( )

一個在基督裡重生的嬰孩,常被認為可以聽其自然。長輩和較成熟的基督徒,往往未預防初信者可能碰到的陷坑,也不認識必須在重要的基督教教理和實踐上給他適當的根本訓練。作者應青年基督徒的需要,寫成本書。以應學校和教會的龐大需求。
