Recommends it for: everyone who abandons himself to his grief
Shelves: poetry
the title is surely misleading, part of the irony that is pervading the whole book: since i doubt that the poems which are collected here really do help against the states of mind they are supposed to cure. they surely give you a laugh or at least a smile every once in a while, but definitely not of happiness, for they are too embittered, too ironic, too pessimistic - a feel that completely contradicts the light-hearted, sometimes bothersome rhythm and rhyme. for that reason, someone who seeks f ...more

Recommends it for: everybody
The lyrical first aid kit for everyday's sorrows and suffering. Kästner writes poetry that critizises the dull repetitions of modern life. He comments on topics like sickness, lonliness, heartache, big city life, the seasons and poverty. Kästner's poems create a distorted image of these problems in order to make you realize the absurdity of the situation and through this process he creates the possibility to see your own sorrows from a differnt perspective. Reading poems from this book always ma ...more

Schon in einigen meiner Lyrik Sammelbänden konnte ich feststellen, dass Kästner zu meinen heimlichen Favoriten gehört. Dies hat mich letztendlich auch dazu bewogen einen kompletten Gedichtband von ihm zu erwerben. Und ich sage euch, ich wurde nicht enttäuscht. In 'Erich Kästners Lyrische Hausapotheke' wird man vorallem mit Weltschmerz konfrontiert. Kästner brilliert darin auf eine wunderbare, melancholische und wahnsinnig einfühlsame Weise Situationen zu beschreiben, die jeder kennt un

This is a lovely collectin of Kästners poetry. Kästner's words are always simple, but each of his poems manages to really get to the core of things. Some of them are melancholy and thoughtful, some of them sad and wistful, and quite a lot of them are full of a good chunk of irony and humour.

A lovely collection of Erich K_stner poems that let me rediscover quite a few poems I hadn't read in years. Providing a list of which poems are suitable for which situation in life, if you wish to read the book that way (loneliness, death, love, and many more) is a very enjoyable way as well.

I love the way this book is organized: you can look up by poems by your current state of mind. Not sure that the poems are always a cure (sometimes they make it worse) but it is one of my favorite collections of Kaestner poems. Again, simple but wonderful.

Was der Titel schon sagt: Gedichte Kästners samt Anleitung, bei welchem Gebrechen oder Leiden welches Gedicht Abhilfe verspricht

I prefer other editions of Kästner's poetry which do not exclude his excellent political poems.
