Abaelards "Historia calamitatum"

Text - Übersetzung - literaturwissenschaftliche Modellanalysen

Author: Dag Nikolaus Hasse

Peter Abelard's autobiography, the Historia calamitatum, is one of the best-known medieval texts, especially because of the story of his love for Heloise which it recounts. In recent decades, there was so much controversy about the authenticity of the documents concerning Abelard and Heloise that the critical interpretation of the texts was relegated to the sidelines. The present volume provides a way out of this impasse. In it, the famous text is subjected to a series of exemplary analyses from the perspectives of seven different 20th century literary theories (aesthetics of reception, Foucault, Gender Studies, Rhetorical Stylistic Analysis, Psychology of Literature, Cultural Studies, Deconstruction). The analyses are preceded by the Latin text of the Historia calamitatum with a modern German translation. This is thus the first time that the Historia calamitatum has been presented in a bilingual edition.

Vorne auf mein Buch schrieb ich „Mein Buch des Lebens von Angel“, was übrigens mein echter Name ist, und meine wahre, eigene Geschichte, vielleicht einst von einem anderen Engel zu verlesen. Angel, 16 Jahre alt, trifft auf Call – diese Begegnung verändert ihr normales Leben. Bevor sie es richtig merkt, macht Call sie drogenabhängig und schickt sie auf den Babystrich. Angel beginnt, ihr Leben zu hassen. Sie schafft es aber erst, auszubrechen, als Call ein noch jüngeres Mädchen mitbringt. Angel nimmt den Leser mit auf die Reise in ihr Innerstes. Man wird Zeuge von Angels Gedankenfetzen, Überlegungen, inneren Monologen und Gesprächen. „Wie soll ich dieses besondere Buch beschreiben? Es ging unter die Haut. Ein wunderbares Buch trotz traurigem und zugleich hoffnungsmachendem Inhalt. Die feinsinnige und einfühlsame Sprache hat mich ebenfalls fasziniert. ...“ A.S.
