Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Writer Primo Levi (1919-1987), an Italian Jew, did not come to the wide attention of the English-reading audience until the last years of his life. A survivor of the Holocaust and imprisonment in Auschwitz, Levi is considered to be one of the century's most compelling voices, and The Periodic Table is his most famous book. Springboarding from his training as a chemist, Levi uses the elements as metaphors to create a cycle of linked, somewhat autobiographical tales, including stories of the Piedmontese Jewish community he came from, and of his response to the Holocaust. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Pressestimmen

"I immersed myself in "The Periodic Table" gladly and gratefully. There is nothing superfluous here, everything this book contains is essential. It is wonderful pure, and beautifully translated...I was deeply impressed." -Saul Bellow "The best introduction to the psychological world of one of the most important and gifted writers of our time."-Italo Calvino "A work of healing, of tranquil, even buoyant imagination." -"The New York Times Book Review" "Brilliant, grave and oddly sunny; certainly a masterpiece." -"Los Angeles Times" "Every chapter is full of surprises, insights, high humor, and language that often rises to poetry." -"The New Yorker" "One of the most important Italian writers." -Umberto Eco With a new Introduction by Neal Ascherson

A friend of mine, recommending this book to me, said "The first chapter was kind of boring, but I kept reading, and at some point I realized that it was just ... beautiful." It is.

This book is a series of stories, each with an element from the periodic table as its theme. Many of the stories are from the autho's life, but a few are fictional. All are amazing. This book is not about the holocaust, it's not about the author's life as a partisan, it's a story about people and life and love and everything that makes people human. It's amazing that an author who has been through so many extraordinary things can write about his life in such a way that the rest of us can relate COMPLETELY to his story. This is simply an AMAZING book.

Frankly, the problem with most great writers is this: outside of their craft, they don't have a life. They look down their noses at us and treat us like pathetic ants, often with no insight into our lives and our work. Here then is Primo Levi, on one hand, an accomplished chemist, on the other, someone who lived to speak of the Death Camps. This experience allows him to write the twenty one gems in "Periodic Table". Each one of these stories crystallizes around a seed element. The seeds form the basis for a detective story into the chemical mystery of a failed paint, an ancient plumber's life ruined by lead, and work in a chemistry lab inside Auschewitz. Levi has a dramatic literary style built for the short story. His writing is pithy and to the point. He builds the stories to encapsulate and expose a single core idea. Each one is about something, entering into the experience of one of the millions of people who lead lives worthy of examination.

Hey look, I'll help Amazon sell a book here, how much does it say you'll pay for it, $9.00 maybe? If you have a scientific bent, you'll surely find the stories here entertaining and interesting. Primo Levi was a unique person and that, coupled to his excellent style, makes this book a very good read.

Von Ein Kunde am 28. Februar 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
Levi weaves the characteristics of the chemical elements through his life both metaphorically and literally. The author's boyhood fascination with chemistry leads to his adult occupation. During World War II, the young Italian Jew is taken away by the Nazis to Auschwitz. Ironically, his chemical knowledge keeps him alive at the death camp. This true story has a mystery in it; wherein Levi's German supervisor at Auschwitz Buna synthetic rubber, slave labor factory contacts him many years later [not long after writing this book, Levi suffered a fate similar to the German]. The book is refreshingly unsentimental, gripping, and even educational from both historical and scientific perspectives. Reading it is all at once stimulating, frightening, and enlightening.

Readers will enjoy and also be improved by Levi's book.

Von Ein Kunde am 16. September 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
This book, like all truly great books, can be viewed in many ways. A possible, rewarding one is to view it as the story of an education. Each chapter, named after the periodic table of the elements, tells about the acquisition of an important piece of the mosaic that was Primo Levi.There is the discovery of the "essential language" of science, as opposed to the void rethoric of fascism, the discovery of courage, in the chapter named "Iron", of rigor, in the "potassium". But this is not a didactical book. This is a series of wonderful tales, of exquisite poetry and of life, true life. I didn't read more than five books comparable to this one.
