Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

There are whole fistfuls of masterpieces in this one volume: a cornucopia of invention... The Collected Stories, when all is said and done, is an American Master's 'Book of Creation'. (The New York Times Book Review)

Sparkling and triumphant, Isaac Bashevis Singer's stories are filled with wonder, gratitude, humour, irony and a wry eroticism that manages to exalt the pleasures of the flesh and the soul at the same time (Washington Post Book World)

Kurzbeschreibung

Isaac Bashevis Singer's work explores humanity in all of its guises. This collection of forty-seven short stories, selected by Singer himself from across the whole of his career, brings together the best of his writing. From the supernatural 'Taibele and Her Demon' to the poignant 'The Unseen', and from gentle humour in 'Gimpel the Fool' to tragedy with 'Yentl the Yeshiva Boy', these tales explore good and evil, passion and restraint, religious fervour and personal failings, within the traditional shtetls of pre-war Eastern Europe and post-war America.

Von Ein Kunde am 8. September 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Dies Buch gleicht einer Schatztruhe, dies Buch gleicht einem Archiv. Man kann in ihm studieren, was das jüdische Leben im 20sten Jahrhundert ausgemacht hat. Es umfasst wunderbare Geschichten aus dem osteuropäischen schtetl, ist immens reich an den fabelhaften und phantastischen Traditionen der jiddischen Kultur. Es wimmelt hier nur so vor Geistern und Dämonen und den zahlreichen Wesen der Zwischenwelt - geboren aus der Mystik der Kabbala, Produkt einer unruhigen, unsicheren und nie festgestellten Metapyhsik, so wie sie das ganze Werk Singers prägt. Singer insistiert gleichsam auf die Unverfügbarkeit kosmischer Wahrheiten und stellt diejenige Realität dagegen, die immer nur aus der Dichtung und der Phantasie kommen kann. Nicht minder beeindruckend sind dann die Erzählungen aus Amerika, die von kleinen jüdischen Gemeinden handeln, die doppelt unter dem Schock des Holocaust und unter den Herausforderungen der Neuen Welt leiden. Entwurzelte sind dies, die nur langsam und zögerlich Fuß fassen, psychologisch meist aber nie in den USA ankommen. Aus diesem Konstrast des traditionellen Empfindens und Denkens einerseits, der technologisch hochgezüchteten Moderne andererseits weiß die Singersche Prosa Funken sondergleichen zu schlagen. (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

For anyone not familiar with Singer's work, this provides something of an intense, but deeply engaging, introduction. Although the setting is often the closed world of Poland's rural Jewish communities before the Nazi invasion, these stories are replete with the most profound insights about human nature that are universally applicable. Told with dazzling skill, and using a wonderful sense of realistic detail (including beautiful descriptions of the natural world), these stories are rich, full and deeply moving. Within the small communities Singer uses as his settings, he explores faith, despair, love, longing, and above all else, loneliness, in ways that are as moving as they are brilliant. Like Tolstoy, Singer is able to explore these profound themes without the slightest pretension and without writing "philosophical" prose. Indeed, reading them is like listening to a brilliant oral story teller who effortlessly draws you into his tale--but then you realize you are, in fact, reading an extraordinarily sophisticated text. This is some of the finest writing I've read in many years and is one of those books I would take with me to that desert island everyone talks about.

This book satisfied my craving to learn the type of world mygrandparents came from, their language and attitutes. I laughed sohard from Singers descriptions of his characters that I thought I would bust. This is a book for all to learn to appreciate a rich culture that existed in Eastern Europe and was transported to America with those remaining lost in the Holocaust. Singer has some imagination and the talent to relay his thoughts clearly that you feel that you are among the characters. The translation from Yiddish to English was well done and conveyed the message completely. A must for those who want to expand their knowledge of the roots of the Jewish people and their lives and experiences in a world lost.

HASH(0x8b5c56cc) von 5 Sternen The Greatest Short Story Writer of the Century? 14. August 2000
Von R. W. Rasband - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I hesitate to even comment on this book for fear of not doing it justice. It's a collection of the best short stories of the Nobel Prize-winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer. He definitely is *not* a minimalist in today's fashionable style. You will find fabulous riches here: satire, history, horror, fantasy, faith, despair, wonders. It starts with "Gimpel the Fool" of course; it's all of Singer in a nutshell. Is this poor wanderer of eastern Europe mad, or does he really see the world beyond this one? His kindness and faith mark him as an eternal victim--by this world's standards he is an idiot and easy mark But is he the real human being and his tormentors really just animals? And what sort of God would let it come to that? I love this book with all my heart and fervently advise you to get ahold of it. It might change your life.

HASH(0x8d21f6f0) von 5 Sternen Here is the table of contents 30. März 2009
Von Pascal Tiscali - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. The publisher's website states that this book is a SELECTION, not a complete collection: "The forty-seven stories in this collection, selected by Singer himself out of nearly one hundred and fifty, range from the publication of his now-classic first collection, Gimpel the Fool, in 1957, until 1981. They include supernatural tales, slices of life from Warsaw and the shtetls of Eastern Europe, and stories of the Jews displaced from that world to the New World, from the East Side of New York to California and Miami."

HASH(0x8bfba4a4) von 5 Sternen Dr. Chekhov, Please Step Aside , , , 17. März 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Invidious or not, comparisons between writers--particularly if they inhabit similar genres--are inevitable. Hemingway used the analogy of boxing: Faulkner could go, say, ten rounds with any of his contemporaries but would be knocked out by Joyce. (I'm paraphrasing but you get the idea.) Well, in every book about the craft of fiction I've read, and nearly every interview with contemporary writers, Chekhov is acclaimed as the master of the short story. Singer is rarely mentioned. When he is, it's often with a patronizing wink, as if he were a quaint old boor to be respected more for nostalgia's sake than merit. In fact, Singer is the undisputed heavyweight champ of the short story. His stories seem less crafted than channeled, as if Singer had a pipeline to Heaven and was God's amanuensis. Henry Miller said that reading Singer was like "eating pie." In other words, pure pleasure. He's right, but along with the pleasure, these stories go straight to the soul and stick. It's not hyperbole to say that Singer's stories capture and convey life--and sometimes the afterlife--in all its humor, sadness, beauty and wonder. Buy this book.
