Zwei Quellenstudien zu Arno Schmidts Erzählung "Die Wasserstraße"

Die ländlichen Erzählungen, die Arno Schmidt in der ersten Hälfte der 60er Jahre schrieb und in dem Band "Kühe in Halbtrauer" veröffentlichte, sind weit mehr als Handübungen für die sich anschließende Arbeit am Großwerk "Zettel's Traum", dessen Techniken sie vorwegnehmen. Viele Leser schätzen diese kompakten, aber vielfach rätselhaften Erzählungen als geheimen Höhepunkt der Erzählkunst Arno Schmidts. Hier eignet er sich erstmals Elemente der Sprachkunst des späten Joyce an und unterfüttert sie mit Modellen der Psychoanalyse Freuds; hinzu kommen untergründige Strukturierungsweisen, die Schmidt dem von ihm als "Kirchenvater aller modernen Literatur" ausgemachten Lewis Carroll abschaut. Zu welcher sprachlich-literarischen Virtuosität Schmidt durch diese Impulse gelangt, zeigt sich beispielhaft an der Erzählung "Die Wasserstraße", einem Gang zu den Quellen nicht nur auf der Handlungsebene, sondern auch im Gewebe der Textur. In zwei Studien führt Friedhelm Rathjen vor, welche Einsichten ins Innenleben des Textes sich aus der Verfolgung nur scheinbar isolierter Zitatsplitter (hier speziell aus der englischsprachigen Literatur) ergeben.

Sundry observations, none of them very shattering, did the clerks and, amongst them, myself, make upon the groom, as he passed and repassed, some of them direct, others some what oblique. To these he made no reply save by looks, which had in them something dangerous and menacing, and clenching without raising his fists, which looked singularly. Hard and horny. At length a whisper ran about the alley that the groom was a Welshman this whisper much increased the malice of my brother clerks against him, who were now whenever he passed the door, and they happened to be there by twos or threes, in the habit of saying something, as if by accident, against Wales and Welshmen, and, individually or together, were in the habit of shouting out Taffy, when he was at some distance from them, and his back was turned, or regaling his ears with the harmonious and well known distich of. Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Deer and People

Author: Naomi Sykes,Karis Baker,Ruth Carden,Richard Madgwick

Deer have been central to human cultures throughout time and space: whether as staples to hunter-gatherers, icons of Empire, or the focus of sport. Their social and economic importance has seen some species transported across continents, transforming landscape as they went with the establishment of menageries and park. The fortunes of other species have been less auspicious, some becoming extirpated, or being in threat of extinction, due to pressures of over-hunting and/or human-instigated environmental change. In spite of their diverse, deep-rooted and long standing relations with human societies, no multi-disciplinary volume of research on cervids has until now been produced. This volume draws together research on deer from wide-ranging disciplines and in so doing substantially advances our broader understanding of human-deer relationships in the past and the present. Themes include species dispersal, exploitation patterns, symbolic significance, material culture and art, effects on the landscape and management. The temporal span of research ranges from the Pleistocene to the modern day and covers Europe, North America and Asia. Papers derived from international conferences held at the University of Lincoln and in Paris.

Gypsies and the British Imagination, 1807-1930

Gypsies and the British Imagination, 1807-1930, is the first book to explore fully the British obsession with Gypsies throughout the nineteenth century and into the twentieth. Deborah Epstein Nord traces various representations of Gypsies in the works of such well-known British authors John Clare, Walter Scott, William Wordsworth, George Eliot, Arthur Conan Doyle, and D. H. Lawrence. Nord also exhumes lesser-known literary, ethnographic, and historical texts, exploring the fascinating histories of nomadic writer George Borrow, the Gypsy Lore Society, Dora Yates, and other rarely examined figures and institutions. Gypsies were both idealized and reviled by Victorian and early-twentieth-century Britons. Associated with primitive desires, lawlessness, cunning, and sexual excess, Gypsies were also objects of antiquarian, literary, and anthropological interest. As Nord demonstrates, British writers and artists drew on Gypsy characters and plots to redefine and reconstruct cultural and racial difference, national and personal identity, and the individual's relationship to social and sexual orthodoxies. Gypsies were long associated with pastoral conventions and, in the nineteenth century, came to stand in for the ancient British past. Using myths of switched babies, Gypsy kidnappings, and the Gypsies' murky origins, authors projected onto Gypsies their own desires to escape convention and their anxieties about the ambiguities of identity. The literary representations that Nord examines have their roots in the interplay between the notion of Gypsies as a separate, often despised race and the psychic or aesthetic desire to dissolve the boundary between English and Gypsy worlds. By the beginning of the twentieth century, she argues, romantic identification with Gypsies had hardened into caricature-a phenomenon reflected in D. H. Lawrence's The Virgin and the Gipsy-and thoroughly obscured the reality of Gypsy life and history.
