Hanser Rauschen | #32

Der Hanser-Verlag hat seinen Sitz im noblen Münchner Stadtteil Bogenhausen am Herzogpark, nur 400 Meter entfernt von dem Ort, an dem Thomas Mann mit seiner Familie von 1914 bis 1933 lebte. Der große irische Schriftsteller Colm Tóibín hat uns auf seiner Recherchereise für einen Roman, den er über Thomas Mann schreibt, im Verlag besucht. Tóibín hat in seinem Werk bereits viel über andere Biographien nachgedacht, unter anderem in seinem berühmten Roman "Porträt des Meisters in mittleren Jahren“ über Henry James. In diesem Jahr ist bei uns sein Roman "Haus der Namen" erschienen, in dem er sich kopfüber in die antike Orestie stürzt. Sein Lektor Piero Salabè hat das Gespräch genutzt, um nach seinen Recherchen zu fragen: Wie recherchiert man so etwas, wie geht ein Schriftsteller wie Colm Tóibín vor? Viel Vergnügen mit Hanser Rauschen!

Colm Tóibín on his selection:

When W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory met at the end of the nineteenth century, she, thirteen years his senior, had published very little. She was a widow living in a large house called Coole Park in County Galway in West Ireland. He was every inch the young poet. She had one son, Robert, who spent most of his time in London. Until his marriage in 1917, Yeats spent many summers at Coole. He and Lady Gregory collaborated on many projects, including plays and the founding of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. In 1918, after Robert Gregory was killed in the First World War, Yeats came to Coole, joining Lady Gregory and her daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. Yeats there wrote his two great elegies for Robert: “In Memory of Major Robert Gregory,” a public poem remembering a hero, and the other, “An Irish Airman Foresees His Death,” in a more hushed tone, written for a ghostly voice, attempting to offer his old friend comfort by finding a new context for his death, suggesting balance and completion for the dead airman rather than strife or tragedy.

These poems were written in a time of loss, in a place where no visitors came, when the house was isolated so that the poet could work.

Likely Stories: The South by Colm Tóibín

Likely Stories

I’m Jim McKeown , welcome to Likely Stories, a weekly review of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and biographies. A recent reminder that I had neglected the works of Colm Tóibín drew me to one of only a couple of his works I had not read. The South is the story of Katherine Proctor who abandons her family in a move to Barcelona. There she meets Miguel, an anarchist veteran of the Spanish Civil War. This is a thrilling story of art and exile and a search for love. Note there are several brief adult scenes.
