    One thought on “Michael Kohlhaas”

    1. It is not surprising Kafka loved this novella so much that it often brought him to tears, for here, a hundred years before Kafka, Kleist created a hero whose single-minded attempt to right one act of injustice leads him into a nebulous world of bureaucratic timidity, familial influence, and existential absurdity where he is transformed into a criminal, defined as a terrorist, and eventually deprived of everything in life except one final secret, one silence.But the marvelous thing about Michael [...]

    2. the repetition contained within this novella raises, once again, the perennial question regarding a strategy in which the narrative structure itself is meant to mimic and/or reinforce the work's major theme; a kind of narrative onomatopoeia, if you will. one considers godard's slow-moving 15 minute tracking shot of traffic in weekend and wonders if his point (a cinematic representation of the repetition & monotony of a particular aspect of contemporary life) comes across or if just bores the [...]

    3. You better not mess with Michael Kohlhaas!Kohlhaas was a model 16th century citizen. He was one of the most righteous people around. He was God-fearing, benevolent, just, and faithful. And then he became a raider and a murderer. And the reason for this was his righteousness.That's pretty much the summary of the first paragraph in Kleist's novella. I pondered a while what else there is to say about this book that may want you to read it, because read it you must. In the end I think the above shou [...]

    4. I just re-read this for the first time in ten years or so and it was great. I laughed aloud at the absurdity of it, and yeah, I thought of Kafka more than once. Kleist's grasp of storytelling is phenomenal here - it all happens so quickly, and because the thing goes for 100 pages or so we're soon surrounded by a labyrinth of no less complexity (probably greater complexity) than the one faced by K. in The Castle. I mean, this is off the scale. And it's thrilling, to see the contortions Kleist can [...]

    5. Harika! Gerçek bir olaydan alınan öykü edilgen bir dille anlatılmış. Bu çeviriden mi kaynaklıdır bilmiyorum ama bence öyküye inanılmaz yakışmış. Kurgu da neredeyse boşluk kalmayacak kadar sıkı ve düzgün örülmüş. Bir daha okunabilecek kitaplardan.

    6. The story of a man whose sense of justice turns him into a robber and a murderer.This story is reinterpreted in the novel Ragtime.I bought this book the first on my long and very slow road to acquaintance with Kleist, in Kassel(view spoiler)[ I remember the bookshop, and where in the shop I discovered the book, can't for the life of me remember my first kiss(view spoiler)[ probably because it was less exciting even than a slim volume of Kleist (hide spoiler)], but when it comes to thumbs on page [...]

    7. _Michael Kohlhaas_ is a fictionalized account of an actual historical event. A horse trader from Brandenburg on a journey to Saxony is falsely extorted for a border crossing by the Squire Wenzel von Tronka, who also keeps two of Kohlhaas’ horses as surety against the trader’s inability to pay. Upon arriving at Saxony, Kohlhass learns that, as he suspected, the border tax was a ruse and on his return journey demands his horses back from the squire. Instead he finds that the servant he had lef [...]

    8. Project Gutenberg - gutenberg/ebooks/12060Archive - archive/details/germanclaKaren found another Project Gutenberg ebook which contains both a different translation and an interactive table of contents. Find it here: gutenberg/ebooks/32046Thank you, Karen. 3 MAR 2016 - Maintaining an obstinately stubborn vigilante mindset is not a good idea!

    9. A man caught between the grindstones of nepotism, corruption and sheer disinterest, whose outrage makes him take justice into his own hands and exact a terrible revenge against the arbitrary extortion of a local baron. The final scene of his execution sees his magnificent triumph; the state takes his life, but he takes a secret with him to the grave. Radical, disturbing.

    10. A married employee of a catholic school was accused of having sex with the school physician right there inside the school clinic during office hours. She was dismissed for improper conduct and immorality. The evidence on this was weak because the lone witness to this was the school janitor whose testimony was not only shot full of holes, but he even reported the incident quite very late--around five months after it supposedly happened. A court, however, gave credence to the charge because of ano [...]

    11. εξαιρετικό ξεκίνημα για τη χρονιά με ένα βιβλίο που είναι πολύ μπροστά από την εποχή του. δεν Κρινώ το γράψιμο αλλά την ιστορία εξαιρετική και η ταινία

    12. Estos alemanes son unas máquinas. No hay con qué darles. El año pasado ya había leído a Stifter y había flasheado, pero este es muy superior. Michael Kohlhaas es un tratante de caballos (vendedor de caballos) que quiere pasar de una ciudad a otra pero en un palacio le impiden el paso y le retienen los caballos. A partir de ahí, de ese hecho mínimo, la novela se va a ir yendo progresivamente al carajo y se va ir complejizando cada vez más. Hay quema de palacios y pueblos enteros, una apa [...]

    13. An old folk revenge story, but it reads like something much more modern - at least with some of its portrayals and themes. I'll have to try more Kleist in the future.

    14. Монсударын цувралаас уншсан 3 дахь ном боллоо. Крейцерийн сонат, Кандид, Коолхаас гурав агуулгын хувьд маш ялгаатай номнууд боловч орчуулга нь нэг редакцаар дамжсан гэдгийг хэлж болмооор ч юм шиг төсөөтэй үг хэллэг, хэв маяг ажиглагдлаа. Бүгд богино ном тул нэг суултаар ун [...]

    15. Io ho il fortissimo presentimento di non essere in grado di esprimere un parere sensato su questo racconto. Detto questo, mi è piaciuto molto, ma ho subito delle influenze esterne, infatti ho letto Michael Kohlhaas solo dopo aver visto l'omonimo film del 2013 di Arnaud des Pallières (che naturalmente non è stato distribuito in Italia), inoltre il saggio in fondo al libro di Stefan Zweig su Kleist mi ha fatto amare profondissimamente questo autore e questo ha avuto un peso nelle mie consideraz [...]

    16. The introduction of my version of Kohlhaas waxes over Kafka's infatuation with von Kleist, an author who had to some extent been vilified in the nineteenth century for his wilful inversions of the romantic mode. Though he was considered a Romantic, there is little of the violently throbbing heart, little Sturm und Drang, to his prose. Rather, it seems finely calibrated, and indeed in its labyrinthine ways bears a resemblance to Kafka.Kohlhaas is a small man who, on the face of it, can no longer [...]

    17. Edit Review:I read this book again even if I originally didn't enjoyed it at all because of a discussion I had with my boyfriend. I have to say that I still don't like this book but I think it deserves 2.5 stars instead of 1 star. The story itself is actually quite interesting. I don't like Kohlhaas as a protagonist because I think his revenge is exaggerated but I think the plot of the story is meaningful and that is why I change my review after reading this again on my own. I know I wrote that [...]

    18. Michael Kohlhaas was kind of a badass!I expected a stuffy old story, but NO! This man was wronged by some sniveling dude who just happened to have familial ties to governmental agents, which resulted in Michael not being able to obtain justice. But, when he takes matters into his own hands, he starts a series of events that will not be stopped.I totally want to see this movie, but it's in French. (I think - possibly German, but I'm pretty sure it's in French.) So, I'm anxiously awaiting the sub- [...]

    19. Como anticipa en sus primeras hojas, “La posteridad habría honrado su memoria si su excesivo sentido de la justicia no lo hubiera convertido en salteador y asesino”, se trata de una historia simple de venganza originada en una injusticia. Y hubiera sido mucho más consistente si hubiera quedado sólo en eso, pero pasada la mitad de la novela se entremezcla una historia que involucra una profecía del electorado de Sajonia y la gitana responsable de conjurarla innecesario para los estándare [...]

    20. Would it be too contradictory to say that it was an interesting story and that it bored me out of my mind? Maybe I'd better say that the writing style didn't agree with me. I found it difficult to follow what was happening, especially because so many people were referred to by nothing other than a title, which made it pretty much impossible for me to keep things straight. I did feel sorry for the main character, and I do think that it's a good illustration of just how far law can be manipulated [...]

    21. Absolutamente espléndido. Una exploración, quizás hiperbólica, pero harto elocuente de la justicia, la integridad y el justificado hartazgo ante los abusos del poder y sus entramados. Escrita con un ritmo enérgico y con pasajes verdaderamente emocionantes, la pequeña novela es de lectura deliciosa y conserva todo el vigor de la vigencia de su tesis. Maravillosa.

    22. Una gran historia ambientada en el S. XVI en en el ya veremos los problemas de la burocracia y la corrupción del Estado. Me ha gustado mucho. contandoteunlibro

    23. Ein-Satz-ReviewInzwischen, nachdem ich die Geschichte des Kohlhaas, Rosskamm an der Havel im 16. Jahrhundert, aus Ärger über die Ungerechtigkeit, die ihm von Seiten des Junker Wenzels von Tronka widerfährt, eine grausame und gehirnversprützende Wendung um die andere zu nehmen, und somit immer schneller einen Strudel von Geschehen einzulassen, gelesen und mit in der Hektik aufgepeitschter Begeisterung genossen habe, schien ich mich an das Stakkato der Apposition, jenen sprachlichen Galopp gew [...]

    24. Yazının edilgen bir dilde yazılmış olması okurken biraz zorladı beni. Onun haricinde 1532 ylında yaşanan gerçek bir olaydan yola çıkılarak yazılan bu kitap, bir at tüccarının önüne çıkan tüm engellere rağmen adalet arayışını anlatıyor. O dönemdeki yönetim şekli, adalet sistemi ve işleyen bürokrasinin çıkardığı zorluklar karşısında Kohlhaas'ın yılmadan sonuna kadar verdiği adalet mücadelesi takdire şayan. Bu uğurda değerli kayıplar veriyor ama adal [...]

    25. Dieser Schreibstil, obgleich sicherlich kunstvoll und weder unangenehm noch unangemessen, hat mich doch auch nach einigen Kapiteln noch, die ich unter größtmöglicher Konzentration es zu lesen geschafft hatte, weiterhin sehr ermüdet, wodurch die Freude am Lesen der eigentlichen Geschichte, wenn nicht gänzlich zerstört, so doch geschmälert wurde, und ich trotz des Wissens, dass dies sicherlich meinem eigenen Unvermögen zuzuschreiben ist, froh war über jeden Satz, den ich zu deuten in der [...]

    26. Çok iyi ve merak uyandıran bir başlangıca sahip kitap bendeki etkisini ilerleyen bölümlerde biraz yitirdi. Hikaye 1532 yılında Almanya'da geçiyor ancak uğruna çokça çaba harcanan ve bir türlü 'sağlanamayan adalet' hem zamansız hem de evrensel.

    27. Heinrich von Kleist aparecía entre los escritores que Yuri Zhivago (Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak) había leído y disfrutado. Sentí que contraía una especie de deuda con Yuri, por lo que me animé a probar un poquito a Kleist a ver qué podía ofrecerme el autor. Pensé que la obra de Kleist sería harina del mismo costal que Doctor Zhivago, es decir, pesimismo realista con pequeños toques místicos muy chulos. Nada más lejos de la realidad.Empezamos por la sinopsis: "en ella donde se da [...]

    28. Миний эрхийг хамгаалахгүй байгаа газар оронд би амьдарч байж чадахгүй! ~ Михаэль Коолхаас

    29. " миний эрхийг хамгаалахгүй байгаа газар оронд би амьдарч байж чадахгүй" гэж зохиолын гол баатар Коолхаас нэгэнтээ шийдвэртэйгээр хэлж байж. Энэхүү зохиолыг Heinrich von Kleist бодит түүхээс сэдэвлэн бичсэн ба эрх барьж байгаа хүмүүний дээрэнгүй зан Коолхаас мэт шударга ёсыг эрхэ [...]
