About this Item: Seagull Books, 1990. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. This representative collection of short fiction by Premendra Mitra, one of the most important names in modern Bengali literature, unfolds a world which is chilling in its bleakness, yet leavened with humour and compassion: a world populated by members of a degenerated and impoverished aristocracy, petty criminals and clerks, and the bittered, frustrated middle classes. Though set in India of the recent past, Snake and Other Stories presents a series of powerfully contemporary portraits of human beings under stress. Printed Pages: 168. Seller Inventory # 4648

About this Item: Prhi, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Ghana-da s bizarre narratives draw upon science, history and geography to conjure up exotic locales, other worlds and peoples, their habits, lifestyles and languages. Mosquito and Other Stories brings together twelve of Premendra Mitra s most popular Ghana-da tales. These stories within stories, told in first person by one of the denizens of the mess hall, straddle the thin line between make-believe and truth. Ghana-da s bizarre narratives draw upon science, history and geography to conjure up exotic locales, other worlds and peoples, their habits, lifestyles and languages. In Mosquito Ghana-da saves mankind from a new and deadly breed of the insect; in Pebble we find him trading in sandalwood in the New Hebrides; Glass and Duck explore nuclear science; in Hole he tells his spellbound audience about the Fourth Dimension; and in Hat he is dragged over Mount Everest by a runaway yeti. And that s just the beginning. These accounts of travel and heroism, born of wild imagination and sound knowledge, make the teller and his tales simply irresistible.

About this Item: Verlag Volk und Welt, Berlin, 1966. Leinen. 22 cm 550 Seiten. Leineneinband ohne OU. gebräunt, Gebrauchsspuren, einband leicht fleckig und an den kanten bestoßen. " "Der junge Radscha ist im Zeichen des Stieres geboren", orakelt der Oberastrologe bei der Geburt des Tigerkönigs, "zwischen Stier und Tiger besteht Feindschaft. Also wird er durch einen Tiger sterben." Wie ein Marionettenfürst des 20. Jahrhunderts eingedenk dieser Prophezeiung sein Leben einrichtet und wie das Horoskop schließlich doch in Erfüllung geht, das erzählt Kalki, einer der prominentesten indischen Schriftsteller, in der humorvollspöttischen Titelgeschichte dieses Bandes. Andere Erzählungen beschäftigen sich mit den großen Themen der heutigen indischen Gesellschaft. Die tragischen Folgen der Auseinandersetzung zwischen Hindus und Moslems, das Leben der untersten Schichten der Gesellschaft und der Unberührbaren, die Rolle der Frau, die noch ins Dunkel alter Sitten verbannt ist, die Unwissenheit und Naivität der Menschen, die in rüdeständigen Gemeinden auf dem Lande leben - dies alles wird in der literarischen Gestaltung zu einem realistischen Bild indischer Verhältnisse verdichtet. Neben Rabindranath Tagore, dem Klassiker der neuen Prosa, gelingt es auch zahlreichen jungen Schriftstellern, in die Tiefen der menschlichen Seele einzudringen, die in der oft grausamen Wirklichkeit zu verkümmern droht. Liebevoll gestaltete Kinderporträts wechseln mit ironischen Geschichten über blinden Aberglauben und politische Scharlatanerie. Wird einerseits der Untergang des Feudaladels sinnfällig gemacht, so entsteht andererseits durch die Verknüpfung alter Legende mit gegenwärtiger Wirklichkeit ein Bild vom Aufbau eines unabhängigen Landes, in dem die Technik in gemeinsamer Arbeit zum Wohle aller eingesetzt werden soll. Dieser bisher umfangreichste Sammelband moderner indischer Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten in deutscher Sprache stellt 36 repräsentative Autoren aus zehn Nationalliteraturen vor. Die einzelnen Beiträge vermitteln die Vielfalt indischen Lebens und geben einen Eindrude vom Reichtum der indischen Literatur seit den dreißiger Jahren.
