Der Weg zurück

Paris in the Terror, June 1793-July 1794 A Crime of Passion
PTSD in post WWI Germany the seuel to All uiet on the Western Front Episodic not always linear first person narrator although it sometimes feels like a close third or even a sort of omniscient first person when thanks to Ernst s deep connection with his troubled former comrades scenes are dramatized that the narrator couldn t know about friend returning to the trenches alone at night and then shooting himself how a room feels after another friend cuts open an artery and bleeds out Teenagers taught to fight and survive to kill and make it through dreaming of home and returning alive holding up their return as their hope have trouble reacclimating of course when they finally return and sit with loved ones and see the familiar landscape of their outh as a potential battlefield have no patience for fine phrases about heroism or The Fatherland or anything along those lines find their studies total bullshit can t sit in a classroom and teach penmanship to 7 to 10 Coffret - L'oracle des sorcières year olds when the horror they ve experienced the sense of betrayal solely occupies their mind each of a handful of comrades not so deeply characterized stage II case of disembodied proper noun syndrome try to make their way back to a semblance of sustainable existence some sort of coming to terms Ernst ultimately finds a sort of peace via mindfulmystical communion with nature lying down in the grass alone just looking listening being some not at all Lacks the drive and blatant high stakes of the other EMR novels I ve read I m on a completist uest FYI and have five or six others on a shelf in order of publication ready to go thisear Almost started skimming midway but right when I started to think three stars could devolve to two it picked up and ended tremendously As always with EMR what s triggered completism there are moments of extreme vividness up there with Prince Andrei on his back looking at blue sky Proust s elevating airplane Leopold Bloom s kidney sliding in his frying pan Bartlebooth s watercolors returning to the ocean etc in this it s a war veteran sheep dog named Wolf fighting with the farmer s bulldog Pluto and then later doing what he s been bred to do excelling at herding sheep although he was raised on the battlefield Wolf s road back is hard wired or when the comrades run to the suare with their faces of the trench as the military led by a former comrade threatens to turn a machine gun on a crowd of labor protestors led by a former Jewish comrade or a scene at an official military sanctioned brothel when Ernst the narrator loses his virginity the classroom scene when the oung veteran students revolt against the principal s fine phrases of heroism and again at the end the courtroom scene when the comrades rise up against the judge and lawyer in defense of their friend s murder of a man who d been macking on a woman who d been his only beacon through it all Was worried about this one and a little disappointed until page 180 or so but from now on I ll be completely confident that EMR will deliver He was dramatizing boredom and dissatisfaction which always makes what follows all the better although in this it felt like it went on a few dozen pages too long and wasn t sufficiently concentrated But generally this is another great EMR novel since it s about PTSD well before the term was coined it lacks the sense that death could visit with every turned page but a worthwhile way to spend two long sittings today at jury duty Always stretches of top notch translated prose although in this the translation especially in dialogue occasionally seemed wonky thanks most likely to old German slang rendered as old British slang Also interesting in that it was published in 1931 so before the rise of the forces that would wreck everything hundreds of times over was published in 1931 so before the rise of the forces that would wreck everything hundreds of times over a decade or so no lessons in this learned at all those oung students of Ernst s would grow up to be in their 30s during WWII and the teens at the end gleefully performing military exercises and calling WWI veterans cowards and traitors to The Fatherland foreshadow what s to come Hunger and inflation are only touched onGenerally I think I m interested in this era for reasons related to rising fascism worldwide and Trumpism seeing our own times through the perspective of 80 100 ears ago in Europe the general sense of HEFT that runs through these novels that always elevates the prose translated German is probably my favorite flavor in the English language but also because I m searching for Bolano s sources for the Hans Reiter section in 2666Here s a uotation representative of theme and translation although the language in this bit is a little elevated since Ernst is waxing significantly from right before he decides he can t be a schoolteacher What am I able to teach ou then Should I tell ou how to pull the string on a hand

SUMMARY Å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Erich Maria Remarque

Tly due to the divisive force of revolution also featured as a major source of despair Things were simpler at the front where comrades marched together noble and good A nice mess we have made of it I expected to gain historical information about post war Germany from this novel which it didn t offer but still a traumatizingly superb read The Road back although less well known than All uiet on the Western Front is just as thought provoking and in subtle ways even heart breakingThe story begins during the last few days of WWI As battle rages around them a group of Politieke geschiedenis van België sinds 1830 young German soldiers contemplate what peace will be like and dream of returning home with both fear and longing They grieve for lost comrades who won t be returning with them but anticipate the joy of being back with friends and family of returning finally to their old livesWhen peace finally does arrive they head home anticipating a hero s welcome instead they are met with indifference and lack of understanding The people who had remained behind while they were off fighting for the Fatherland have continued their lives without them and for these people peace is not much different from war everything is pretty much the same But theseoung men have changed When they marched away to war they were just boys hardly than children with all the hopes and innocent dreams of Internationaal cartoonfestival Knokke-Heist. Cartoons 2003 youth they have returned as men old before their time damaged physically and psychically and they no longer fit into this civilized worldNothing is the same for them and they feel lost and betrayed Wives have taken lovers jobs once promised are now occupied by others who hadn t left they are too old and too restless to return easily to their studies and they no longer respect those who once held authority over them parents teachers police They are scorned by the profiteers who became rich off the war and they have been forgotten by the girls they left behind They suffer from shell shock and depression and can t shake habits they developed for survival in the trenches They steal to eat even though food is available they have flash backs and jump at every loud noise and their nights are plagued with nightmaresOne reenlists hoping to regain the companionship they had shared during the war only to discover it doesn t exist in a peacetime army One seeks to change the world through revolution only to be shot and killed by soldiers whom he once fought alongside For some the only solution is suicide and for a very few including Ernst the narrator of the story true peace is finally found in natureThe Road back is possibly the hardest most gut wrenching book I have ever read Remarue s characters are so vividly drawn that they seem to live in the pages and it is impossible not to feel every lost hope every disappointment every pain every betrayal that they feel This book is a must read for anyone whether pro or anti war who wants to understand what it is to be a soldier during wartime On completion of this book one feels wiped out A book about war and its aftermath should leaveou upsetThe Road Back is the second in a series of two the first being All uiet on the Western Front The first is a tremendous book a book EVERYONE should read This second should also be read but it does not reach up to the caliber of the first The first takes place in the trenches of France during the First World War The second takes place in Germany after the war What makes both books particularly noteworthy is that rather than focusing on the victorious we look at the war s losers the German soldiers who fought and lost The characters in the second book are for the most part not those in the first One does presume though that the characters in the second Are From The Same from the same as those in the first since they are spoken of The second book focuses on what faced the German men on their return to their homeland Both of course are about the horror and the futility of war The book depicts the poverty the lack of food the rampant profiteering and prostitution that arose the unstable political situation the lack of jobs and the German authorities disregard for the returned soldiers problems and needs As a book of historical fiction depicting the situation of Germany after the war it is exemplary The mental and physical suffering of the maimed men those who were lucky enough to return alive comes to the fore The book has a large cast of characters Some are referred to both by their first and last name I am fully aware of the need to draw them as a company of men rather than separate individuals their sense of being part of a group comrades that through thick and thin they could depend on is what got them through the war Nevertheless one feels less attachment to the separate individuals there are just too many for that and keeping straight what has happened to each is extremely difficult In my view this weakens the book While the book excellently draws the situation in Germany it failed to make me feel deep empathy for the characters This is something I am looking for in a book of historical fictionOne might complain about the book s is something I am looking for in a book of historical fictionOne might complain about the book s One finds out what happens to each of the many characters but for the central character he who narrates the story we find out whether he surmounts his personal difficulties but not howview spoilerTime has healed him but we are not privy to the healing process Perhaps the author wanted to leave it this way Time mends wounds for some hide spoiler Of all the prose writers I have et read none can surpass Remarue No writer I have encountered understands the human condition as deeply as he does For Remarue s characters life is condition as deeply as he does For Remarue s characters life is symbiosis death and loss on the one hand camaraderie and one s ability to enmesh oneself in the wonder of nature with all its hopeful healing potential on the other A fitting et uniue follow up to its notorious predecessor this novel is a scathing indictment of war and the betrayal of not just a generation or a single nation but a snapshot into the brutalisation of an entire world its people its ecology Ultimately though it is an authentic tale of survival and a magnificent testament to human

done admirably without them Those hoping for a warm welcome help and support or some token of gratefulness only meet with torpid indifference As a whole the civilians can t care less about the horrors witnessed and performed by those enlisted The soldiers families put up with them as long as they do not tell them about the last 4 Silent Strength (Strength, years in the frontline Germany craves

seuel to All uiet on the Western Front it is striking to meet not that many characters from the preuel You cannot help noticing how many of them are missing from the scenery because they have never made it past the trenches The wide range of characters displayed by Remarue allows him to sketch several possible paths for soldiers surviving war The hospital for severely burned or gassed patients Venereal diseases caught in the brothel Suicide The mental institution Familial ties frayed adultery new marriage parents unable to recognize their child within the soldier and the soldier within the child Denial of the past war Commitment with political parties trade unions and other forms of associations not to face the ever increasing solitude of the survivors Reenlistment The same as in All uiet on the Western Front the hero narrator stands out because of the almost naturalistic attention he bears to nature to the here and now Present time fleeting instants conveyed by unadorned limpid writing Ultimately this is the resource in which the narrator finds a manner of personal salvation of sorts and the former soldier some semblance of Peace Fond Musical Symphonie Triste Jean Sibelius

its echo is long and sorrowful horrendous memories nightmares madness nervous breakdowns psychological traumas suicides alienationThe things here are stronger the things that differentiate us from one
