9781571134080: A Companion to the Works of Elias Canetti (Studies in German Literature Linguistics and Culture)

The Bulgarian-born scholar and author Elias Canetti was one of the most astute witnesses and analysts of the mass movements and wars of the first half of the 20th century. Born a Sephardic Jew and raised at first in the Bulgarian and Ladino languages, he chose to write in German. He was awarded the 1981 Nobel Prize in Literature for his oeuvre, which includes dramas, essays, diaries, aphorisms, the novel Die Blendung (Auto-da-Fé) and the long interdisciplinary treatise Masse und Macht (Crowds and Power). These works express Canetti's thought-provoking ideas on culture and the human psyche with special focus on the phenomena of power, conflict, and survival. Canetti's masterful prose, his linguistic innovations, his brilliant satires and conceits continue to fascinate scholars and general readers alike; his challenging, genre-bending writings merge theory and literature, essay and diary entry. This Companion volume contains original essays by renowned scholars from around the world who examine Canetti's writing and thought in the context of pre- and post-fascist Europe, providing a comprehensive scholarly introduction.

Review:

Overall, the book presents an image of Canetti's work that is reflective of his own style, in part by resisting a simple chronological organization. ... A valuable resource for those seeking an introduction to the works of Elias Canetti. --German Quarterly

The Companion faithfully reflects the present state of scholarship... The image of the writer that emerges from this volume is agreeably open and multi-faceted. --Modern Language Review

This volume allows the reader to familiarize himself with the work of Canetti in its vast multiplicity and provides an interesting approach. --Etudes Germaniques
