The Tin Drum by Günter Grass Summary

The publication of The Tin Drum in 1959 launched Günter Grass as an author of international repute. Bitter and impassioned, it delivers a scathing dissection of the years from 1925 to 1955 through the eyes of Oskar Matzerath, the dwarf whose manic beating on the toy of his retarded childhood fantastically counterpoints the accumulating horrors of Germany and Poland under the Nazis.

Trudi la naine by Ursula Hegi Summary

Trudi Montag vit à Burgdorf près de Düsseldorf. Trudi est naine. Souvent seule, sujette à mille et une brimades, elle passe son temps à observer ceux qui ne la voient pas.

Au fur et à mesure que s'accroît le pouvoir d'Hitler, elle nous dit ce que chacun choisit de se rappeler ou d'oublier. La résistance à la barbarie pour les uns, le mensonge et la compromission pour les autres. De la défaite de 1918 jusqu'au silence collectif sous le nazisme, c'est tout un pan de l'histoire allemande qu'évoque Ursula Hegi au fil d'une narration éblouissante et audacieuse.

Approaches to Teaching Grass's The Tin Drum by Monika Shafi Summary

The career of Günter Grass began dramatically in 1959, with the publication of his first novel. The Tin Drum brought instant fame to the thirty-two-year-old author and led to his receiving the 1999 Nobel Prize in Literature. Translated into dozens of languages, the novel has sold over four million copies worldwide. Its status as a major text of postwar German literature, however, has not diminished its provocative nature. In both style and content, it continues to challenge scholars, teachers, and students. This volume, like others in the MLA series Approaches to Teaching World Literature, is divided into two parts. Part 1, "Materials," provides the instructor with bibliographic information on the text, critical studies, and audiovisual and Internet resources. Part 2, "Approaches," contains eighteen essays on teaching The Tin Drum, including three that discuss Völker Schlöndorff's 1979 film adaptation of the novel. Some of the topics covered are the historical context (Nazism, World War II, the Holocaust), Oskar Matzerath as an unreliable narrator, the imagery (e.g., eels, the Virgin Mary), the use of German fairy tales, and how Grass's satirical treatment of Germany speaks to postwar generations.
