It’s amazing, Caroline.
It is, isn’t? I’m curious to see what “literary novels” week will bring. Tony already kicked it off.
I’m moving forward in time a little (at last!) – although there is one from the nineteenth-century to look forward to 😉
I saw your Peter Stamm post (I’haven’t read it yet) but didn’t add it as I thought it is for week 2.
Oh wow! What a fantastic start. I’ve started Mesmerized so i hope to have my review up soon. Congrats on such a successful start!
Thanks, TBM. It’s rather great.
I’m looking forward to your review.
Thanks for the list Caroline – So many interesting looking blogs and books to check out! Still hoping to join in late in the month.
It would be great but there’s no pressure.
OK, since time is ticking away I will go with something short and at least for me safe. I am starting Hermann Hesse’s “Demian” tonight. Hesse is perhaps my favorite author and I have read many of his works but not this one. I should have commentary up for the last week of the month!
I love Hesse. Demian is part of a trilogy but you can read them as standalones. One of the two others, Steppenwolf, is set where I’m living. He might even have written it here. In the movie version you see the town.
I id not realize that Demian and Steppenwolf are related. I have read Steppenwolf and I am amazed by that work. I have also seen the movie but it has been awhile.
PS – What is the third book in the trilogy?
I think Siddharta is the third but “trilogy” is too modern a concept. The link is ideological and thematical, the charcaters and everything are very different. my favourite is Narziss und Goldmund, btw. but I thought Steppenwolf was amazing too.
I always meant to read all of his books but haven’t done so yet. My father has read them all, I think his favourite was Gertrude. I suppose they are all translated.
This is so awesome, Caroline! German Literature Month rocks! I am still catching up on the posts of other participants and the sheer size of my ‘TBR’ list now is amazing and so exciting!
It certainly rocks.:)
There are a lot of interesting contributions and the piles keep on piling up higher and higher.
That’s an impressive list of participants. I think I’ll go visit some of the blogs.
I never really made a reading plan based on author’s origins, in fact the only German name that comes to mind right now is Goethe with his very sad and emotional The Sorrows of Young Werther. I really loved that book.
I didn’t expect it to be quite this successful this early on.
Yes, Werther is a tragically beautiful book. Thinking of classics, I’m sure you would like E.T.A. Hoffmann.
That’s quite an impressive list! It’s nice to see so many people joining in–I’ll have to check out those posts but will have to do so with pen and paper in hand as I am sure I’ll be adding titles to my reading list! Thanks so much for all the links!
My pleasure. I’m sure you’ll find some very interesting books as well. I’m really glad German language literature can generate such an interest.
Wow – amazing! This is becoming a real fund of information for German literature. I hope to read Schnitzler next week and contribute, too.
That would be lovely.
The links already offer a really nice introduction to German literature.
What riches! Oh, how I wish I had the stamina to fully participate. I’m so glad that the German month is going so well.
We are very happy about this.
I hope you are prepared for Schlink week?
I have my post ready but unfortunately I chose a book I really didn’t like.
Cool!! so many are joining in 🙂
I wish I could join too…maybe next year. I bought any German author book sometime next year and keep it till November.
I hope so too. You could read a few fairy tales for Grimm week – now that the book is lost there is still the possibility to read them for free online. 😉
Wow, what a great event! November is really busy for me so I probably won’t be able to participate, but I’m enjoying visiting all these blogs and discovering some great books. Thanks to you and Lizzie for organising!!
It’s our pleasure, really. It would have been great if you had been able to join but I can understand.
You can always visit the other blogs later.
And where are we to submit links? I’ve discovered the event only today, and right yesterday I have read Death in Venice (http://irrelevant-scribble.blogspot.cz/2012/11/death-in-venice-by-thomas-mann.html). Or is it too late already?
Hi Arenel, no, you are in time and it’s fine like this. I’ll add it to the main page and will post it together with all the other for this week’s wrap up. I’ll add you to my gogle reader that way I’ll capture everything.
OK, thanks! 🙂
You’re welcome. 🙂 It’s already been added.
thanks for mentioning my blog ,all the best stu
You’re welcome, Stu.
How does one participate? I don’t see any mechanism to submit links.
I know, Mr Linky doesn’t really work on wordpress. You can just add a link in the comment section but I’ll alos add your blog to my goole reader, so I’ll know when you publish a review on a German book and can include it in the upcoming lists. I just saw that you didn’t include your blog address.
I would need that or else you just add a link in the comment section.
Thanks. Usually the link comes up automatically. Here is the link to my blog: http://severalfourmany.wordpress.com/
Great, Ill add you to my reader.
