Unterwerfung

Roman

Author: Michel Houellebecq

Publisher: Dumont Buchverlag

ISBN: 3832188371

Category: Fiction

Page: 272

View: 8826

Es ist vielleicht der umstrittenste Roman des letzten Jahres: ›Unterwerfung‹ handelt vom Zusammenprall der Kulturen und stellt Fragen zum Verhältnis von Orient und Okzident, von Judentum, Islam und Christentum – Fragen, die heute so relevant sind wie nie. Goncourt-Preisträger Michel Houellebecq präsentiert sich als furchtloser Gesellschaftsdenker, der die bestimmenden Spannungsverhältnisse unserer Epoche mit großer Ernsthaftigkeit – und zugleich mit virtuoser Ironie – ausdeutet. Er erzählt in ›Unterwerfung‹ die Geschichte des Literaturwissenschaftlers François. Der Akademiker forscht im Frankreich einer sehr nahen Zukunft zu dem dekadenten Schriftsteller Huysmans, der ihn sein Leben lang fasziniert. Zugleich verfolgt er die Ereignisse um die anstehende Präsidentschaftswahl: Während es dem charismatischen Kandidaten der Bruderschaft der Muslime gelingt, immer mehr Stimmen auf sich zu vereinigen, kommt es in der Hauptstadt zu tumultartigen Ausschreitungen. Als schließlich ein Bürgerkrieg unabwendbar scheint, verlässt François Paris ohne ein bestimmtes Ziel. Es ist der Beginn einer Reise in sein Inneres.

Cora ist nur eine von unzähligen Schwarzen, die auf den Baumwollplantagen Georgias schlimmer als Tiere behandelt werden. Alle träumen von der Flucht – doch wie und wohin? Da hört Cora von der Underground Railroad, einem geheimen Fluchtnetzwerk für Sklaven. Über eine Falltür gelangt sie in den Untergrund und es beginnt eine atemberaubende Reise, auf der sie Leichendieben, Kopfgeldjägern, obskuren Ärzten, aber auch heldenhaften Bahnhofswärtern begegnet. Jeder Staat, den sie durchquert, hat andere Gesetze, andere Gefahren. Wartet am Ende wirklich die Freiheit? Colson Whiteheads Roman ist eine virtuose Abrechnung damit, was es bedeutete und immer noch bedeutet, schwarz zu sein in Amerika.

›Gilead‹ ist das erste Buch der großartigen Romanserie von der amerikanischen Meistererzählerin Marilynne Robinson und längst ein Klassiker der amerikanischen Literatur. Wie das Licht über der Prärie den Blick in die Weite lenkt und die Nähe umso bedeutender erscheinen lässt, verleiht sie dem Leben eine ungeahnte Perspektive. Auf seinem Sterbebett schreibt John Ames einen Brief an seinen siebenjährigen Sohn. Dem Kind will er alles erklären: Die Einsicht, mit der man das eigene Leben auf einen Schlag begreift, den Trost, der in einer einzelnen Berührung liegen kann, und den Ort, der sein Ende beschließt: Gilead, die kleine Stadt unter dem unermesslichen Himmel des Westens, leicht wie Staub und so schwer wie die Welt. Seit Generationen lebte seine Familie in Gilead, waren die Männer Pastoren. Der Großvater half schwarzen Sklaven in die Freiheit, der Vater versuchte das Leben der Menschen in der Dürrekatastrophe erträglich zu machen. Sie lebten eng verwoben mit den Menschen und waren getrieben von einer unerbittlichen Sehnsucht nach Versöhnung. Mit visionärer Kraft und sprachlicher Eindringlichkeit erzählt Marilynne Robinson von der Ungeheuerlichkeit des Lebens, das wir erst in der Rückschau begreifen. Und wie John Ames fühlen wir uns im Blitz dieser Einsicht weniger allein. Dieser Trost macht ihre Bücher so einzigartig. »Gefühlvoll, ergreifend, fesselnd – Robinson gelingt es, das Wunder der Existenz zu fassen.« Merle Rubin, L. A. Times Book Review »Doch am Ende steht das Glück und die Rettung, und man begreift – auch so könnte eine Geschichte wirklich enden.« Zsuzsa Bánk »Was für ein Geschenk: Marilynne Robinsons Texte üben eine magische Wirkung aus.« Carolin Emcke »Ich liebe ihre Bücher.« Barack Obama
