I wrote an essay about Anna Seghers's story.
In my opinion one understands her story more if one has at least a glimpse of her life/her life in exil.
It is a fantastic piece of literary work! A frame story and switches beetween now and then, the loos of beloved familymembers and how people develope from friends to enemies due to the pressure of the German system before and during the Nazi time. Seghers has a unique type of textwritting. She used lots of literary figures which makes it extraordinar
(I only read the first short story in this book)
Very sad, but very interesting all the same. Rather difficult for a native English speaker, simply because of the switching between the present, and various events in the past. A bit of a slice of life for the people who were not necessarily in the middle of World War II, but had to live through it.
No human being should read this. It confused me greatly. Character development, plot lines, dialog, scene description, all thrown out the window in favor of this stream-of-consciousness writing. Well, it doesn't work in English, and it certainly doesn't work in German!

Ich hab mich mit diesem Buch unglaublich schwer getan, als Schullektüre super, da Frau Seghers mit kunstvollen Stilmitteln nur so um sich wirft, doch oftmals ist der Handlungsstrang verwirrend und Spannung kam nicht so wirklich auf
Die Geschichte ist nicht schlecht und wenn man die NS-Zeit in der Schule durchnimmt, sicher auch lesenswert, aber nur so zum lesen lohnt es sich jetzt nicht wirklich.
Lässt sich insgesamt aber eigentlich ganz gut lesen.

Un conjunto crudo y escalofriante de historias cruzadas narrado con maestría y con un uso muy interesante de los espacios y el tiempo.
