    1. I d never heard of Wolfgang Borchert until about a week before Christmas when a European Couple in their twenties came into the store and were asking for books by Ingeborg Bachmann, Max Frisch and a couple of other authors that I like and who are sort of obscure They then asked for The Man Outside, a book by an author I d never heard of, but going by the worn torn cover, the German name and that these two young Europeans seemed to have some similar reading tastes as me, I ordered the book in to [...]

    3. Helmet off helmet off we have lost Wolfgang Borchert was one of millions of Germans who fought in WWII Not for Hitler, for national socialism, or for Germany for Germany, he d written plays against the nazis, which earned him a one way trip to the front it s easier to have your enemies take care of dissidents.When he came back home, the war was over, Hitler was dead and Wolfgang himself wasn t far behind Four years of bullet wounds some allegedly self inflected , field hospitals, sickness, jail [...]


    4. Ich wei , es ist schwer, mir zuzuh ren und mit mir zu f hlen I know it s difficult to listen to me and to feel with me Wolfgang Borchert made me feel that way from beginning to end of this short, yet seemingly interminably long, anthology of a play and short stories It was as if I were privy which seems like the wrong word, as does forced to witness a long, desperate, inconsolable primal scream Borchert s howl is about the injustice of war, or precisely, the injustice of being forced to fight, [...]


    5. Keine der B cher der deutschen Nachkriegsliteratur schildert die Lebensm digkeit, Lebensmittelknappheit, Isolation und Emtfremdung von Menschen in jenem Zeitalter besser als diese, und zwar als eine unmittelbare Folge der kollektiven Schuldgef hle ber die Ereignisse.


    6. incredibly powerful and depressing play on a veteran s psychological despair after his return home regardless of the war and site here it s wwII in germany , a book that s relevant in any country and year.


    7. I considered giving this 4 stars due to some unevenness, but the best stories of the day here are legitimate classics with an original style and energy that kept one of my eyes on the page while the other navigated ice, Philadelphia citizenry, and large buses Without going too biographical, Borchert had a longstanding battle with the Gestapo and was dragged into active service by the Wehrmacht and placed on Germany s Eastern front during WWII Conscription, prison, war, and hepatitis killed him b [...]


    8. Prachtig toneelstuk, waarin de hoofdfiguur een soldaat die terugkeert van het front inziet dat hij geen enkele betekenis meer heeft, nu de oorlogstijd is afgelopen Hij wil zichzelf het leven ontnemen door in de Elbe te spingen, maar de rivier spuugt hem uit en hij is verdoemd zijn plek te vinden in de maatschappij die niet meer de zijne is Een zoektocht begint naar zijn eigen identiteit, maar hij merkt dat alle deuren voor hem gesloten zijn Indrukwekkend treurig en aangrijpend geschreven door Bo [...]



    9. Es war nicht leicht, dieses Buch zu lesen Aber vielleicht ist es gerade deshalb so wichtig, es trotzdem zu tun Borchert schildert die Folgen des Krieges mit einer Schonungslosigkeit, die ein tiefes Gef hl von Verzweiflung hervorruft.


    10. This is one of the most important books I ve ever read It s tragically beautiful and recounts what life was like for East Germans directly after World War II.



    11. This is a difficult book to rate The stories are very short, metaphorical and capture the emotional devastation of WWII It is a very dark book, painful and sad, like poetry than stories to me.


    12. Of course not every story is five star, but many are, as is the play which gives the book its title The world of the weary soldier and ex soldier is Borchert s central theme, but the reverberations are universal.



    13. Y k m Edebiyat n n ustalar ndan Borchert i ke fetmek ne g zel Kap lar n D nda da, sava n bir dehay nas l yo urdu unu ve nas l sonunu getirdi ini rendim.



    14. Wars in themselves are bad enough but to come home and find everything in ruins is even worse This play is very good but somewhat harrowing.


    15. O mein Bruder, your very writing is a resounding, necessary Yes to the seemingly pervasive No of the world and the situations we place or find ourselves in war and plenty else otherwise but one wonders if it is enough your Yeses and all the other countless Yeses so very busy Yessing and fading into oblivion but what if it ever was enough then what

    18. THERE ARE SOME SPOILERS HERE, but it s hard to review this book without giving some, since all stories are so short.The first book of 2017 and I have a strong feeling it will take the first place of my favourite books at the end of the year Shit, this was good.Wolfgang Borchert died when he was 26 years old There is no doubt that his already fantastic writing skills would have evolved even , but I think what makes The Man Outside and the other stories so profound is that they were written immedi [...]


    19. Wir hatten den Haupt Text Drau en vor der T r nat rlich in der Schule gelesen, wovon ich das meiste vergessen habe, aber auch Nachts schlafen die Ratten doch kam mir bekannt vor.Borchert schreibt eine wirklich starke Sprache, die den Inhalt beeindruckend vermittelt Das Lebensgef hl dieser Zeit und dieser Menschen, die in einem abgehalfterten Deutschland, das nur zu gern vergessen wollte, keinen Platz mehr fanden.


    20. Es wundert mich, dass von allen Kommentaren zu diesem Buch die wenigen deutschsprachigen am negativsten sind Ein schr ges Buch, statisch, zu symbolischEs ist keine Unterhaltungslekt re, die einen mit spannnenden Wendungen und launigen Schilderungen am Lesen h lt Schulkinder d rfen zurecht gelangweilt sein Das Theatherst ck und die in dieser Ausgabe erhaltenen Kurzgeschichten sind schwer zu verkraften Die Handlung geht in Kreisen, unzusammenh ngende Redefetzen, Dialoge, Ged chtnisbilder von fr he [...]


    21. And we are filled with hunger and hope We are filled with hunger for love and hope for life And we are filled with hunger for food and hope for friendship And we are filled with hunger for travel and hope for homecoming There s a man playing the xylophone He plays incredibly fast And he sweats, this man, because he s extraordinarily fat And this xylophone s gigantic And because it s so big he has to dash up and down with every stroke And he sweats, because he s really very fat But it s not sweat [...]


    22. Wolfgang Borchert and, particularly, Drau en vor der T r, really touched me DVDT was my first ever book read in german From cover to cover, I mean I had to read it for german literature class, and I thought it would be hard and dense It is dense, but the way Borchert writes, the strength of the characters, the powerful dialogues, it all moved me, and made the whole reading experience easier in terms of language, of course The theme is something else The story is set after the second world war, a [...]

    25. This book moved me tremendously, as it summed up exactly how i think of war and the fact that you give away your conscience when you enter into the army, from there on doing the bidding of your officers and in the end the current political party leading the government, notwithstanding what you think of the actions you have to take.Unfortunately it is not possible yet to have a world without armies, but borchert shows in this book very well what this can lead to and that the ones that have to pay [...]


    26. As I had to read this book for college, I thought I would hate it, because it s a rare thing when teachers make their students read enjoyable books My expectations were really low and I wasn t looking forward to reading it, but when I finally started, I found myself enjoying it a lot.I can t quite say what was it that made me like this book so much, just that I did and that then it was super easy to learn all the things we were being taught in class.It s such an easy though different and quick b [...]
