  • Per molti anni, anzi quasi fino a oggi, vi stato in Germania un argomento tab per eccellenza la distruzione senza precedenti causata nella seconda guerra mondiale da oltre un milione di tonnellate di bombe, che piovvero su centotrentuno citt tedesche provocando seicentomila morti fra i civili e sette milioni di senzatetto Poich i tedeschi erano colpevoli e dovevanoPer molti anni, anzi quasi fino a oggi, vi stato in Germania un argomento tab per eccellenza la distruzione senza precedenti causata nella seconda guerra mondiale da oltre un milione di tonnellate di bombe, che piovvero su centotrentuno citt tedesche provocando seicentomila morti fra i civili e sette milioni di senzatetto Poich i tedeschi erano colpevoli e dovevano elaborare la loro colpa, ci che un intero popolo aveva patito era destinato a passare sotto silenzio Quando nel 1997 Sebald tratt questo tema in una serie di memorabili lezioni a Zurigo ed erano lezioni, si badi bene, di poetica , sapeva benissimo di toccare un nervo scoperto E nessuno come lui si sarebbe rivelato capace di farlo.Nel dar voce a testimonianze oculari di implacabile precisione, Sebald ci conduce nell epicentro del fuoco distruttivo che incener , ad esempio, Amburgo, mettendo a protocollo quell orrore in gran parte rifuggito dagli scrittori tedeschi la madre con il cadavere carbonizzato del suo bambino dentro la valigia e la famiglia che sorseggia beatamente il caff seduta al balcone in un sobborgo risparmiato dall area bombing il libraio che tiene sotto il banco e mostra ai clienti di fiducia le foto dei cadaveri accatastati in strada, delle case sventrate, dei cieli in fiamme, e la massaia che lava i vetri dell unico edificio svettante in mezzo a un deserto di macerie Il lettore ritrova qui la stessa tonalit dell opera letteraria di Sebald, la stessa pietas verso uomini e oggetti che ispira tante pagine della sua narrativa.Cos questa cronaca di orrori diventa un contributo a una Storia naturale della distruzione come avrebbe dovuto intitolarsi un saggio del britannico Solly Zuckerman sul bombardamento a tappeto che devast Colonia una storia naturale in cui hanno cessato di valere le categorie di libert e scelta e tutto si muove insieme come un efferato e inarrestabile meccanismo Dopo le immani risorse profuse nella costruzione di aerei e ordigni non sarebbe stato infatti concepibile per gli Alleati scaricare le bombe in mezzo ai campi e impedire che cogliessero il loro naturale bersaglio questo sostiene un generale americano a cui non sarebbe certo bastato che un immane bandiera bianca venisse fatta sventolare sul campanile di una chiesa dagli abitanti di una citt bersaglio E come immagine allegorica si staglia il bombardamento dello zoo di Berlino, con la visione apocalittica dei pachidermi che bruciano vivi, dei loro corpi smembrati, delle loro urla furiose.

    1. STORIA MOLTO INNATURALE DELLA DISINTEGRAZIONEUn Sebald insolito per me, più per forma che per contenuto, trattandosi sostanzialmente sempre di memoria e malinconia. La forma, dicevo: per me insolita perché qui ha veste di lezioni/conferenze, non di narrazione – inoltre, in appendice, un pamphlet polemico, anche questo insolito, perché la polemica non si addice al Sebald che ho conosciuto finora. Mentre molto gli si addice l’ironia, che in questo ultimo breve saggio raggiunge vette alpestr [...]


    2. Besides the essay on area bombing, of which I was interested and which was the main reason for me purchasing this book, I was very pleasantly surprised by a review of Jean Avery's work, which I can't wait to read now. Beautifully written on the part of Sebald and with such consideration towards victims, such strong belief that we must understand both the perpetrator and the victim in any criminal process (such as the WWII genocide was). To hear of mothers who pack their burned and mummified chil [...]


    3. Guardare indietro e distogliere subito lo sguardoA partire dal 1942 circa, gli Alleati iniziarono un piano sistematico di bombardamenti delle città tedesche, che mirava prevalentemente a distruggere abitazioni e a uccidere civili. Difficilmente si può pensare che questi bombardamenti fossero finalizzati all’abbreviazione del conflitto, visto che i civili non partecipavano alla guerra e certamente non c’era, in Germania, una opinione pubblica da convincere.Perché, allora, la sola Royal Air [...]


    4. This posthumous collection is a curious mixture. The bulk of the book consists of an adapted lecture series on the bombing of German cities, the unprecedented nature of the destruction in cities such as Hamburg and the curious lack of references to it in most German post-war literature. This is powerful, moving and thought provoking. The remainder of the book is a series of essays on three German writers, none of whom I knew anything about, and although this was interesting in what it said about [...]


    5. This book contains four essays, the final three (which I did not read) dealing with three writers I do not know: Alfred Andersch, Jean Améry, Peter Weiss. The opening essay, which anchors the book (and is 48% of the book) deals with the interesting topic of the German cultural amnesia regarding the devastation they suffered from the allied bombing of German cities. The essay is clear and contains some interesting points. Sebald believes that contemporary Germans suffer from a sort of cognitive [...]


    6. Δύστροπο για τον Έλληνα αναγνώστη έργο. Περιλαμβάνει διαλέξεις του Sebald για την άρνηση της μεταπολεμικής γερμανικής λογοτεχνίας να αγγίξουν το θέμα των τελευταίων ημερών του Γ' Ράιχ κ των φρικωδων βομβαρδισμών με χιλιάδες θύματα. Ο Sebald κατακρίνει αυτήν την ηθελημένη έλλει [...]


    7. You would think the massive air raids on Germany in World War II, the most dramatic experience the German people have ever gone through, would be a subject Germans couldn't stop talking about. The exact opposite is the case. But why? Sebald goes to the bottom of this phenomenon in the four essays that make up this book. He comes up with a thorough, convincing and riveting explanation. German authors are largely to blame. The first essay traces this out. The second names a famous German author as [...]


    8. Had this been reviewed more fairly by my fellow Goodreaders, I probably would have gone up to 3 stars, but instead I find myself thrown into a position of aggression. Had this been written by, e.g Peter Weiss, not only would it not have x hundred ratings; it wouldn't even have been published. Thankfully for lovers of mildly diverting amateur history and effective literary polemic (i.e probably not you), it was written by Sebald, and so is not only published, but published in cheap paper-back by [...]


    9. This posthumous volume of Sebald's non-fiction writing is a major contribution to German literary criticism and politico-cultural analysis. Accompanying his reflections on the traumatic impact of the air war against German cities are essays studying the very diverse reactions of three `witnesses' of that time as reflected in their post-war literary works. In AIR WAR AND LITERATURE, originally presented as the Zurich Lectures, Sebald delves deeply into some very uncomfortable questions. The air w [...]


    10. I was wary when I started this - I bought this a few weeks ago based on the strength of a recommendation from somebody I normally trust, unaware that it was a series of four lectures. And normally that means I'll be bored to tears. (Bad flashbacks ensued from two semesters of studying German literature, an altogether stultifying experience thanks to the toothless and ossified lecturers at my university). The first lecture, on collective memory regarding the air raids and aftermath, takes about 5 [...]


    11. On the Natural History of Destruction is perhaps the the work of Sebald's that I've enjoyed the least thusfar. This means it was still fucking transcendent.The reason I didn't enjoy it as much is a fairly simple one. I just haven't read most of the authors he references in his long essays about, among Peter Weiss, Alfred Andersch, or the various Trümmerlitteratur authors. I did enjoy the essay on Jean Améry it's a wonderful meditation on an author, who, like Sebald, embodies the spirit of inte [...]


    12. This book was loaned me by a friendly coworker. It was the first explicit account I'd ever read of the allied bombing of Germany during World War II. Since then I've followed up with further studies of allied bombing strategies against the Germans and Japanese, their intentions and their actual accomplishments.In addition to describing the devastation imposed upon urban centers, the author meditates upon the subsequent virtual silence of most German-speaking writers as regards these events.


    13. L'argomento è oltremodo interessante e l'esposizione di Sebald lo rende anche affascinante. E' la storia di un buco nero in una coscienza collettiva - e verrebbe da dire che ben gli sta. La letteratura si è dimenticata di certa Storia, ma fortunatamente il cinema no, e 'Germania anno zero' di Rossellini è li' per ricordare, a chi ne avesse voglia, la perversione di quei momenti.


    14. Espiazione.Non ho sicuramente le competenze storiche, né tantomeno quelle letterarie, per commentare questo saggio di W.G. Sebald, in realtà più che un saggio la raccolta parziale di alcune conferenze tenute dall'autore sul tema "Guerra aerea e letteratura" e un'analisi critica sulla figura e sulla produzione letteraria dello scrittore tedesco Alfred Andersch, per cui mi limiterò ad alcune riflessioni personali.Sebald era nato nel maggio del 1944, afferma per cui di appartenere «al novero d [...]


    15. Sebald investigates what he sees as a remarkable absence in German literature of any account of the devastating Allied bombing of German cities. He thinks the absence must be attributible to a collective repression of a traumatic experience. He investigates the few examples of postwar literature that describe the bombing of cities and finds only one or two examples that he thinks avoid cliche and obvious psychological coping mechanisms. The book is a mix of history (the most interesting bits) an [...]


    16. So why did German intellectuals and writers refuse to talk about the destruction of their country by the allies? The destruction of every major city and all the cultural artefacts contained therein. Not sure that Sebald actually answers the questions but he points the reader at other sources. Thought provoking.


    17. It is scarcely possible for me to imagine the actual consequences of aerial bombardment on my city. Or any city. I can read that the RAF dropped a million tons of bombs on Germany, and that over half a million civilians died as a result; I even know, because I’ve read it in this book, that for every person in Cologne there was 31.1 cubic metres of rubble by the time we were done with it. But in meaningful terms this hardly affects me. I can barely visualise what 31 cubic metres of anything loo [...]


    18. This series of essays marks Sebald's attempt to understand post-war German literature, particularly as it comments on (or, in his contention, fails properly to describe) the Allied destruction of German cities. Sebald's Zürich lectures, titled "Air War and Literature," occupy the bulk of the book. Sebald argues that post-war Germany continually succumbs to a self-imposed amnesia, evident in architecture, art, and literature. The Zürich essay is at once observational and polemical, and sometime [...]


    19. It's interesting to see Sebald's literary style applied to a historical essay. In this book, Sebald offers a very sharp analysis on Germany's recent history (and, as in all of his work, on the construction of a national, collective, memory). And it's also very interesting to notice how connected all of his works are, and how, in the end, all of his books are one, in a certain way.P.S.: Another interesting book on the same subject is Andreas Huyssen's analysis on what he called 'urban palimpsests [...]


    20. Title is misleading. It's really a meditation on the collective psyche of 1950s Germanywhich, as you can imagine, was pretty fucked up.


    21. Açıkçası Can Yayınları'nın bizim ülkemizde hemen hemen hiç kimse için bişey ifade etmeyen bu kitabı neden çevirtip yayınladığını anlamak zor. Kitap, Alman halkının 2. Dünya Savaşı sırasında ağır bombardıman altında kalmış olmayı neden ve nasıl hafızasının derinliklerine itmiş olduğunu ele alan oldukça akademik bir çalışma. İşin garibi kitabın üçte birlik kısmına konuyla bağlantısını tam çözemediğim ayrı bir bölümün eklenmiş olması. Al [...]


    22. La verdad es que Sebald se está convirtiendo a pasos agigantados en mi descubrimiento del año. Entre lo incisivo —tal vez rozando lo polémico, pero siempre con un gran punto de razón— y lo desgarrador de sus reflexiones sobre un periodo que apenas llegó a vivir he encontrado un reflejo casi perfecto de todas las inquietudes que he sentido alguna vez sobre la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Alemania y la herida que provocó en esta la imparable maquinaria del Tercer Reich.


    23. How to represent that which escapes representation? Such was German literature's central imperative after the war—to wrest memory from the wreckage confronting the 'angel of history' and render palpable a collective deluge which no channel of expression could subsume. Sebald articulates in these essays and in his own literary output the means by which to write, however asymptotically, a form of language faced with the trauma of the past and the paralysis of the present: obliquely; with restrai [...]


    24. This is an amazing book that takes up the trauma of World War II and its memory or lack of it in German literature or historical reporting. For me the most memorable essay in the volume in the one that takes up the absence of discussion of the effects of Allied carpet bombing of cities on the German psyche. Sebald shows us how impossible it is to take in the magnitude of trauma caused by the levelling of German cities. He discusses the role of silence on this topic in German literature and treat [...]


    25. I read it once before and it stuck in my mind the way that Sebald's work always does. And like his nominal fiction books, returning to it is almost more gratifying than picking it up for the first time. That said, it's a brutal piece of writing, and there are many passages in it that are profoundly harrowing.Sebald wants to explore the reasons for the collective silence and questionably willful amnesia that the German people experienced after the area bombing of their cities in the final years o [...]


    26. This is the first Sebald non-fiction I’ve read and while the subject is important and parts of it were interesting it didn’t particularly engage me. The book is a collection of essays on different writers but all focusing on Sebald’s main question why German writers have failed to come to terms with the destruction the air war wreaked on Germany and the “the sense of unparalleled national humiliation felt by millions in the last years of the war.” However, the inadequate and inhibited [...]


    27. The late Sebald is an extraordinary writer. His intelligence, capacity of understanding and compassion, writing style, and huge knowledge make for illuminating reading - and this book, a collection of essays that deal with the German catastrophe of Nazism (and how it impacted the generations after WWII) through the eyes of literature, is an essential book for anyone interested by the subject. Among other things, Sebald relates the horrific bombings that destroyed most of Germany (in details that [...]


    28. Many people misread this book as a lamentation of unacknowledged German suffering in the Second World War. It is that, of course, but it is also much more. Sebald himself laments the ways that Germans themselves--independent of outside interference--have come to commemorate their own victimization. They "look and look away at the same time", indirectly confronting that legacy. From this vantage point of undressed historical wounds, a portrait of Germany's human catastrophes emerges that seems as [...]


    29. I put off reading Sebalds "non-fiction" essays and lectures for a while because I didn't want to break the spell he has cast me into- a dream of a memory where personal narrative meets with historical and architectural facts. I was right to have put it off. As an avid Sebald admirer I appreciate this work because it is all very specific to his core exploration into the widespread amnesia and avoidance of German writers and intellectuals after the second world war to acknowledge and attempt in so [...]


    30. How could be this book controversial? It pushed on themes which were long time taboo and not discussed openly. The suffering of civilians under heavy bombardment followed by touching the biography and works of Alfred Andersch and Peter Weiss.The part about the reflection of the RAF bombardment in contemporary German literature was skillfully touching the national postraumatic stress glued together with sense of guild to national amnesia about horrid impact of the bombardment of the civilian targ [...]
