It's there, but there are also some really interesting and accurate remarks on the problematic nature of what we see as masculinity, and Sybille one of my favorite characters actually has a a lot of agency in the book, and b has an entire paragraph where she talks about how much it sucks that men want women to be their salvation and their creation at the same time but wont let them just be themselves. The writing style is And then on the other hand you have irony running through the whole thing Once you recognize how that kind of lowkey sarcastic attitude relates to his personality it's actually super impressive and adds an entire layer to the whole thing.
It is the only way that real communication, and freedom, and relationships that are actually about more than ourselves, are possible. I think this is entirely true and it's one of my Productive Insights that i take away from reading this So It's also just objectively super relevant and important, and I'd actually recommend it to anyone, as long as you're fine with reading something that is more reflection than action and can be kind of stretched at times; but it pays off! Er selbst fing an, in der Welt zu sein.
I was unsure as I started reading I'm Not Stiller as to just what sort of book it was--the beginning, with its odd air of unreality and absurdity, reminded me more than a little of Kafka's The Trial , though through the middle of the book, it seemed less about alienation and more about examining different facets of personality and identity. A man with an American passport is detained at the Swiss border after an altercation with an official; the man, claiming to be Mr. White, is subsequently iden I was unsure as I started reading I'm Not Stiller as to just what sort of book it was--the beginning, with its odd air of unreality and absurdity, reminded me more than a little of Kafka's The Trial , though through the middle of the book, it seemed less about alienation and more about examining different facets of personality and identity.
White, is subsequently identified as Herr Stiller, a man wanted for questioning by the Swiss authorities. White denies that he is Stiller, and the narrative unfolds as White records his prison experiences in a series of notebooks. White is confronted by the wife of Stiller, Stiller's brother, and a host of other acquaintances, all who identify White as Stiller. White still denying that he is Stiller dutifully records the impressions of these people--of how they saw Stiller, and he begins to draw conclusions as to what this Stiller must have been like. At this point, the book is less Kafkaesque and more like the blind men and the elephant.
This the element of the book that resonated most with me--the way that author Max Frisch provokes the reader into looking at the idea of how we see ourselves, how others see us, the relative 'truth' of either position, and the gaps between the viewpoints of those we consider to be closest to us is builds slowly but dawned on me midway through the book in a pleasantly surprising way. It seemed all the more profound from the subtle way Frisch was able to elicit it. After a beginning that seemed intent on illustrating man's helplessness in the face of the modern world, and a middle that is like a portrait painted by Marcel Duchamp, the ending is something else again--something that I had a difficult time connecting with.
I'll say the fault rests with me--I was still contemplating the ideas that Frisch raised in the earlier chapters, and whatever his intent was in the last pages of the book was lost. The last section, which functions much like an epilogue, I thought could easily have been dropped, and the book wouldn't have suffered at all.
It's as if, after raising such thought-provoking ideas, that resolving them in any way seems like a bit of a letdown. However, others may not see it as resolving the issues so much as completing the thought. Either way, a very compelling and worthwhile examination of identity.
Maybe I have waited so long to read this book because I was afraid how much I'd identify ah, the irony with this novel. This novel rolls up so many question marks of the modern identity, it is perfectly and rather brilliantly executed. Its passages on NYC also resonated heavily within me - even nearly 60 years after its publication, the description of the modern Babylon aka New York is spot-on, and quite hauntingly so. Poetry in prose form for intellectual minds who are troubled by the very idea of existence, its definition and purpose.
He denies being Stiller at nay cost, yet there is undeniable evidence against his denial! So, is he or is he not Stiller? I can't say I know the answer to this question even now that I've finished the book, and that is the beauty of it. Or "I'm not Stiller" says the man arrested in Zurich and accused of being the missing Mr. Or is he trapped in other people's perception of Stiller and digs into his life so much that he starts forming as Stiller? I don't know! Overall, this was not an easy read, but definitely worth the effort. Every once in a while there's a pleasant discovery.
With this "Stiller", that is certainly the case. This is the story of a man that is arrested at the Swiss border, pretending to be an American, but actually seems to be a fugitive. In his prison cell, he keeps notes through which we become acquainted with his past, very gradually, and from different points of view. Occasionally Frisc Every once in a while there's a pleasant discovery. Occasionally Frisch loses himself in details. But "Stiller" is a joy to read.
It was a pity that I had to read it in a French translation, I found not a Dutch Edition in the meanwhile there is one available. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Thought this would be a good weekend read. Thought wrong. This book is full of the philosophy that turns into psychology real fast, as in the assumption isn't that people suffer from hormonal or biological imbalances, but are unhappy or unsatisfied because they think incorrectly about the world and their place in it.
Existentialism calls it "bad faith". As a novel, it's a lighter read than a straight-up philosophical tome and more engaging. If you li Thought this would be a good weekend read. If you like Sartre and Nietzsche, you'll dig this story. It does have a Kafkaesque feel to it, too: imagine if Gregor Samsa woke up and he was an American instead of a cockroach. After Stiller's first notebook, I thought I was in love with this book. But I found the narrator's descriptions of his relationship Julika and the prosecutor's relationship with his wife, Sibylle, to be rather tedious.
Maybe it's my fault for trying to make a go of it in one weekend. This book is like a mental pint of Guiness or a fruitcake and I'm the idiot for trying to chug it. But I read that there is an abridged version and I would hate to lose any of the details. This book was extremely carefully written and there is a wealth of detail, but it was all necessary. I'm actually glad I read it on my nook as it made it easy to search for other references and follow the threads throughout the story.
Otherwise, get out some sticky tabs and a pencil and be ready to do some very worthwhile homework. There were lots of humorous and absurd moments punctuating all Stiller's anecdotes and narratives.
When they're all in his studio and the public defender goes off on his massive list of reasons why Stiller should own up to his real identity and make another go of it with Julika, and it's all hinged on one verb at the very beginning, I was really laughing. So, I guess sometimes the tedium was even used to great effect. I think in the end you kind of have to give yourself up to the premise that Stiller can be taken seriously and that he isn't profoundly unbalanced on a hormonal level.
I couldn't figure out why Julika put up with him at all or why the prosecutor and Sybille supported him through all his antics. As a reader in , I kept rooting for Julika to leave his grumpy butt and get a cat and her own ballet studio. I recommend it. I have questions.
Shelves: novels , german , s. Books and authors mentioned before have shown much more quality than Frisch did in Stiller. It's a classic meaning-of-life tale with the theory of Hesse but way too constructed , the grandeur of Mann but poorly told and attempts to captivate the reader in a Lowry, Kafka way in which it's failing. The construction w 2.
The construction with two sides of a story, first of Stiller, 2nd of Rolf, might have been more interesting if it was the other way round. This is a rational novel, with a neglection of soul, and told in prose that is shallow btw Stiller and Rolf really write in similar style, don't they?! The construction of the novel is forced upon the reader, who is desperately in need, page after page, of a good narrative. Frisch is a master of philosophical conflicts such as identity-crisis and self-exploration.
I'm Not Stiller closely examines the downward spiral of a self-victimizing protagonist, and subtly underlines the nature of accepting, and fighting the self. Although the story gets blurry and murky at some parts, especially when Frisch dives into the fictions and fantasies of Anatol, I always had a sense of personal connection to the story that presented the mind of a conflicted man, and the love chronic Frisch is a master of philosophical conflicts such as identity-crisis and self-exploration.
Although the story gets blurry and murky at some parts, especially when Frisch dives into the fictions and fantasies of Anatol, I always had a sense of personal connection to the story that presented the mind of a conflicted man, and the love chronicle he was a part of. I believe this is where the magic of Max Frisch's craft lies: there is always a part I can hold onto in his narrative, and find parallels between the fictional characters and myself. This book took a long time for me to finish. And I want to start by saying I thought it was going to be part mystery.
I'm not Stiller? So who are you? And where is the real Stiller. Going into the book with this mindset really hurt my early reading of the novel. Later, I realized the book was a detailed and thoroughly thought-provoking dissection of self-deception and self-acceptance.
And this made the entire book come into focus. So reader, I'm giving you a heads up, and it's not a spoiler, it This book took a long time for me to finish. So reader, I'm giving you a heads up, and it's not a spoiler, it will help you frame your reading This guy He is Stiller. So with that, read the book carefully through that lens.
What Frisch does is to really tackle the idea of who we are, and how we know ourselves. Stiller is a character who has allowed others' opinions of him shape his self-perception his entire life. He is a sculpture artist whose work does not sell well because the artist who creates, but does not know himself is really unable to create anything that speaks to others. He marries a beautiful ballerina named Julika. He believes she is all goodness and that she is too good for him.
This becomes in itself a self-fulfilling prophecy as he allows this perception to inform his actions and decisions. Julika becomes ill with tuberculosis and goes to a seaside retreat to recover. Everyone blames her worsening condition on the fact that she continued to dance professionally as Stiller had no money to provide for them both so she had to continue working. Stiller does his best then to aggravate her condition further. He's so obsessed with other people's views of himself that he becomes completely narcissistic in reflection.
Once he realizes how hideously he's behaved, and how he doesn't even know who he really is, he disappears for six years. The book actually begins with him being spotted on a train by a random stranger who points him out, at which point Stiller is arrested and placed in jail on suspicion of involvement in a criminal conspiracy. Although, this is Swiss jail where they apparently let you have visitors and trips out for dinner.
Once he is back he tries to convince everyone that he is indeed not Stiller, but his old friends, and Julika herself do not believe it. He believes now that he is not Stiller he is more able to really love Julika. And it becomes apparent that he wants to throw off his past as if he were never responsible for the person he was before, because how can he be someone new now if he were still Stiller? That to me was the best part. Because it struck me as something I've never really thought about before. About how are past can also define us and who we are.
And there are many people who would say, "don't let your past define you" meaning you can change, or rise up out of your circumstances. But to some extent you are still that same person and you have to live with those actions and consequences, even when you aim to start your life anew. So what Stiller attempts to to have the changed life without the baggage and guilt that comes from previous decisions and actions.
Once he is forced to admit that he is, was and always will be Stiller, he is released from prison and retires to the countryside with Julika where he begins making pots.

But the irony is that he doesn't seem any happier than he was before. He continues to live with Julika and continues to feel shame and guilt over her condition and the life he led before. It's an interesting concept of how when we are with those from our pasts we can never truly escape who we have been. A sort of forced nostalgia which influences how we behave. That said, translations of material are always a bit out of sync sometimes with narrative voice.
The story was overall well done and the themes were excellent. At the end though the book could probably have been about pages shorter and everyone would have been just as happy. This book seems to be playing on Sartres assumption that an imprisoned man could be the freest man in the world. That is: tons of existentialism and an analysis of how mediated reality affects people. The only problem is that this book is kind of old, and the themes it deals with have developed quite a lot since Im not Stiller was written.
Its slightly out-dated, though well-written and witty. I just wasn't that interested. One of these days I'll finish this damn book. I'm about halfway in and just spinning my tires in all of the detail that comes with German-ish postwar writing. I love the idea of mistaken identity and the whole discussion of the sin of projecting identities, false or otherwise, upon a person or thing.
I'm interested to know how this ends I'm Not Stiller "Stiller" in the original German version was definitely not an easy read, nor was it short. The really valuable part of the book is not recognised in black on white but has to be thought through by oneself: The beauty is not on the surface but between the lines. The main theme that I am choosing in this moment in time is shortly mentioned by Stiller's friend in the second part of the book: To learn, not how to become who you want to be, but how to become who you actually are.

In , it was taken by king of the Ostrogoths , who continued into Italy ; as the Ostrogoths left, another Germanic tribe, the Gepids , invaded the city. In it was retaken by the Byzantines. In , some , Slavs poured into Thrace and Illyricum , pillaging cities and more permanently settling the region; the Avars , under Bayan I , conquered the whole region and its new Slavic population by Following Byzantine reconquest, the Byzantine chronicle De Administrando Imperio mentions the White Serbs , who had stopped in Belgrade on their way back home, asking the strategos for lands. Zagreb Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of Croatia.
It is located in the northwest of the country, along the Sava river , at the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain. Zagreb lies at an elevation of m above sea level; the estimated population of the city in is , The population of the Zagreb urban agglomeration is about 1. The name "Zagreb" is recorded in , in reference to the foundation of the settlement at Kaptol in Zagreb became a free royal town in In Zagreb had Janko Kamauf.
Zagreb has special status as a Croatian administrative division and is a consolidated city-county, is administratively subdivided into 17 city districts. Most of them are at a low elevation along the river Sava valley, whereas northern and northeastern city districts, such as Podsljeme and Sesvete districts are situated in the foothills of the Medvednica mountain, making the city's geographical image rather diverse. The city extends over 30 kilometres east-west and around 20 kilometres north-south.
The transport connections, concentration of industry and research institutions and industrial tradition underlie its leading economic position in Croatia. Zagreb is the seat of the central government, administrative bodies, all government ministries. All of the largest Croatian companies and scientific institutions have their headquarters in the city. Zagreb is the most important transport hub in Croatia where Central Europe , the Mediterranean and Southeast Europe meet, making the Zagreb area the centre of the road and air networks of Croatia, it is a city known for its diverse economy, high quality of living, museums and entertainment events.
Its main branches of economy are the service sector; the etymology of the name Zagreb is unclear.
It was used for the united city only from , but it had been in use as the name of the Zagreb Diocese since the 12th century, was used for the city in the 17th century; the name is first recorded in a charter by Ostrogon archbishop Felician, dated , mentioned as Zagrabiensem episcopatum. The older form of the name is Zagrab. The modern Croatian form Zagreb is first recorded in a map by Nicolas Sanson.
An older form is reflected in Hungarian Zabrag. In Croatian folk etymology , the name of the city has been derived from either the verb za-grab-, meaning "to scoop" or "to dig". The first recorded appearance of the name Zagreb is dated to , at which time the city existed as two different city centres: the smaller, eastern Kaptol, inhabited by clergy and housing Zagreb Cathedral , the larger, western Gradec, inhabited by craftsmen and merchants. During the period of former Yugoslavia , Zagreb remained an important economic centre of the country, was the second largest city.
After Croatia declared independence from Yugoslavia , Zagreb was proclaimed its capital; the history of Zagreb dates as far back as A. Alongside the bishop's see, the canonical settlement Kaptol developed north of Zagreb Cathedral, as did the fortified settlement Gradec on the neighbouring hill.
Today the latter is one of the best preserved urban nuclei in Croatia. Both settlements came under Tatar attack in ; as a sign of gratitude for offering him a safe haven from the Tatars the Croatian and Hungarian King Bela IV bestowed Gradec with a Golden Bull , which offered its citizens exemption from county rule and. He ruled Italy as Prime Minister from to In , Mussolini had been a leading member of the National Directorate of the Italian Socialist Party , but was expelled from the PSI for advocating military intervention in World War I , in opposition to the party's stance on neutrality.
Mussolini served in the Royal Italian Army during the war until he was wounded and discharged in Mussolini denounced the PSI, his views now centering on nationalism instead of socialism and founded the fascist movement which came to oppose egalitarianism and class conflict, instead advocating "revolutionary nationalism" transcending class lines.
After removing all political opposition through his secret police and outlawing labor strikes and his followers consolidated their power through a series of laws that transformed the nation into a one-party dictatorship. Within five years, Mussolini had established dictatorial authority by both legal and extraordinary means and aspired to create a totalitarian state.
In , Mussolini signed the Lateran Treaty with the Vatican , ending decades of struggle between the Italian state and the Papacy , recognized the independence of Vatican City. After the Abyssinia Crisis of —, Mussolini invaded Ethiopia in the Second Italo—Ethiopian War ; the invasion was condemned by the Western powers and was answered with economic sanctions against Italy.
Relations between Germany and Italy improved due to Hitler's support of the invasion.
In , Mussolini surrendered Austria to the German sphere of influence, signed the treaty of cooperation with Germany and proclaimed the creation of a Rome—Berlin Axis. From through , Mussolini provided huge amounts of military support to Franco's forces in the Spanish Civil War ; this active intervention further distanced Italy from Britain.
On 10 June —with the Fall of France imminent—Italy entered the war on the side of Germany, though Mussolini was aware that Italy did not have the military capacity and resources to carry out a long war with the British Empire. He believed that after the imminent French armistice, Italy could gain territorial concessions from France, he could concentrate his forces on a major offensive in North Africa , where British and Commonwealth forces were outnumbered by Italian forces.
However, the British government refused to accept proposals for a peace that would involve accepting Axis victories in Eastern and Western Europe. In October , Mussolini sent Italian forces into Greece ; the invasion failed and the following Greek counter-offensive pushed the Italians back to occupied Albania. The Greek debacle and simultaneous defeats against the British in North Africa reduced Italy to dependence on Germany.
As a consequence, early on 25 July, the Grand Council of Fascism passed a motion of no confidence for Mussolini. In late April , in the wake of near total defeat and his mistress Clara Petacci attempted to flee to Switzerland , but both were captured by Italian communist partisans and summarily executed by firing squad on 28 April near Lake Como , his body was taken to Milan , where it was hung upside down at a service station to publicly confirm his demise.
Benito Mussolini's father, Alessandro Mussolini , was a blacksmith and a socialist, while his mother, was a devout Catholic schoolteacher. Benito was the eldest of his parents' three children, his siblings Arnaldo and Edvige fol. Ingeborg Bachmann Ingeborg Bachmann was an Austrian poet and author. Bachmann was born in the Austrian state of Carinthia , the daughter of a headmaster, she studied philosophy, German philology , law at the universities of Innsbruck and Vienna. After graduating, Bachmann worked as a scriptwriter and editor at the Allied radio station Rot-Weiss-Rot, a job that enabled her to obtain an overview of contemporary literature and supplied her with a decent income, making possible proper literary work.
She won the Prize of Group 47 in for her poetry collection Die gestundete Zeit. In , she moved to Rome , where she spent the large part of the following years working on poems and short stories as well as opera libretti in collaboration with Hans Werner Henze , which soon brought with them international fame and numerous awards. Her relationship with the Swiss author Max Frisch influenced the depiction of the second protagonist in Frisch's novel Gantenbein upon her, his infidelity , their separation in , had a deep impact on Bachmann. During her years she suffered from alcoholism and drug abuse.
A friend described it: "I was shocked by the magnitude of her tablet addiction, it must have been per day, the container bin was full of empty boxes. She looked bad, she was waxlike pale, and the whole body was full of bruises. I wondered, what could it have been; when I saw how she slipped her Gauloise that she smoked and let it burn off on the arm I realized: burns caused by falling cigarettes. The plenty of tablets had made her body insensible to pain. During her stay, she experienced withdrawal symptoms complicated from barbiturate substance abuse. The doctors treating her were not aware of this habit, it may have contributed to her subsequent death on 17 October , she is buried at the Annabichl cemetery in Klagenfurt.
Bachmann's doctoral dissertation expresses her growing disillusionment with Heideggerian existentialism, in part resolved through her growing interest in Ludwig Wittgenstein , whose Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus influenced her relationship to language. Bachmann's literary work focuses on themes like personal boundaries, establishment of the truth, philosophy of language, the latter in the tradition of Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein.
Many of her prose works represent the struggles of women to survive and to find a voice in post-war society, she addresses the histories of imperialism and fascism , in particular, the persistence of imperialist ideas in the present. Fascism was a recurring theme in her writings. In her novel Der Fall Franza Bachmann argued that fascism had not died in but had survived in the German speaking world of the s in human relations and in men's oppression of women. In Germany the achievements of the women's rights campaign at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century had been systematically undone by the fascist Nazi regime in the s.
Bachmann's engagement with fascism followed that of other women writers who in the immediate post-war period dealt with fascism from a woman's perspective, such as Anna Seghers , Ilse Aichinger, Ingeborg Drewitz and Christa Wolf. Bachmann was in the vanguard of Austrian women writers who discovered in their private lives the political realities from which they attempted to achieve emancipation.
Male Austrian authors such as Franz Innerhofer, Josef Winkler and Peter Turrini wrote popular works on traumatic experiences of socialisation. These authors produced their works for major German publishing houses. In it she explained recurring themes in her early literary publications and she discussed the function of literature in society.
Bachmann insisted that literature had to be viewed in its historic context, thus foreshadowing a rising interest in studying the connection between literary discourse and the contemporary understanding of history. In the first lecture on Fragen und Scheinfragen Bachmann focused on the role of writers in the post-war society and lists essential questions that are "destructive and frightening in their simplicity".
