"Wenn man Borcherts Werke als Darstellung eines Augenblicks der europäischen Geschichte betrachtet, läßt sich kaum etwas Hervorragenderes denken als seine Beschwörungen Hamburgs und der Elbe. Bedenkt man, daß er ein junger Schriftsteller war, so ist man überrascht von der Disziplin, mit der er sich der vielen präzise beobachteten Einzelheiten bedient. Er besitzt die wahrha ...more

One of my favourite books, a wonderful collection of Borcherts poems and short-stories. my favourites are "Die Hundeblume", "Nachts schlafen die Ratten doch" and "Das Brot". I was introduced to him when I was in highschool. He is still one of my favourite German writers. I love his very precise, dry and at the same time poetic way of writing. His stories are unbelievable melancholic though, except this one: "Schyschiphosch". I couldnt believe how Borcherts voice suddenly turned into the funniest ...more

Jahrelang wurde ich mit seinen Kurzgeschichte in der Schule gequält.
Bis zur Unkenntlichkeit wurde jede seiner verwendeten Kurzgeschichten auseinandergenommen, analysiert und interpretiert.
Ich muss sagen, dass ich Kurzgeschichten an sich mag, aber ich war und werde wahrscheinlich nie ein Anhänger von Borcherts Geschichten.

A German iconoclast and member of the secretive German post-WWII lit society called Gruppe 47, his works are culture-challenging for Nazi and post-Nazi Germany. Wonderful and quirky short stories, many experimental to the point that contemporary lit mags would find him intriguing. Cut short in life, Borchert hardly survived WWII but his works remain interesting for the period.

Borchert hat ein Talent, aber sein Werk lebt weniger vom Lesen, sondern wirkt im Gesprochenen.
