Buchbeschreibung Universitätsverlag Winter Jan 2009, 2009. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 217x149x48 mm. Neuware - The unique career of Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007), America s first major writer to have begun his career in the paperback industry, spanned more than half a century and made him the representative post-World War II American writer (Morse). Between Player Piano (1952), his prophetic depiction of tyranny by computer in the form of a more conventional dystopian novel, and Timequake (1997), his story of a book that refused to be written, in a previously unheard-of mixture of fiction and autobiography, Vonnegut published fourteen highly accomplished novels, at least one of which, his daringly innovative breakthrough novel Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), has become a widely admired modern classic. This study opens with an account of Vonnegut s development from a neglected hack writer to an international celebrity and a brief history of the controversial reception given to a novelist whose inimitable technique combines a willfully naïve style that appeals to less sophisticated readers and cutting-edge experiments that fascinate connoisseurs of metafictional experimentation. It then devotes a self-contained chapter to all of his fourteen novels, tracing their reception by critics and reviewers, explaining how each one is related to the others by recurring characters and settings as well as by the themes and motifs that haunt Vonnegut s fictional cosmos, and combining all textual aspects and the findings of previous Vonnegut scholarship into a close reading of each novel as an accomplished piece of literary art in its own right. Providing the most detailed reading of Kurt Vonnegut s novels yet published, this study confirms his status as one of the outstanding representatives of post-World War II American fiction. 769 pp. Deutsch.
