Momente berührender Menschlichkeit.

Leonhard Frank musste 1915 in die Schweiz fliehen: Der überzeugte Pazifist hatte seine Gesinnung kundgetan und den Journalisten Felix Stössinger im Berliner Café des Westens geohrfeigt, als dieser die Versenkung des britischen Passagierschiffs RMS Lusitania als Heldentat bezeichnete. Franks Novellen gegen den Krieg, die in der Schweiz unter dem Sammeltitel „Der Mensch ist intestine“ erschienen, sind ein klares, berührendes Plädoyer gegen diesen menschenverachtenden Zustand der Welt. Sie wurden während des Ersten Weltkrieges heimlich an deutsche Frontsoldaten verschickt.

Beginning, center, finish, this can be the way in which those brief tales are composed, it’s now not the single method however it serves my objective, in that i wished to have them stand by myself and but give a contribution to the complete. To my mind set, every one story has turn into an entity unto itself. they're pearls on a protracted necklace that give a contribution to the complete simply because they're contained in an Anthology. every one vibrates with a undeniable resonance that reminds us of an analogous different types of incidences in our personal lives.
If to the contrary we view them as simply separate and never contributing to the Anthology within which they're in, we come to the belief that they exhibit us the collective awareness of humanity. it isn't a twist of fate that we see that truth, simply because i attempted to style them that way.
The many issues within the tales replicate our inner most fears and triumphs. no matter if it’s a tender boy’s interest in regards to the international round him or the remorse of an previous guy no longer preserving his good friend in the past once they have been youngsters, those subject matters hit us the place we live.
Like the curious boy, i'm hoping that you just realize little pearls of enlightenment. and are available away with the joy of analyzing tales that provide us desire. The person has a extraordinary means at surviving each catastrophe. Enjoy.
