    This had been on the back burner for a while thanks to Clive James's typically over enthusiastic writeup in Cultural Amnesia But it was Reich Ranicki's passing last September that spurred me to find an affordable copy in English which took some work I can't think of an analogue for him in any other culture A germanophone Polish Jew who physically and mentally survived the Warsaw ghetto thanks in no small part

    I am usually not much into autobiographies if there is any insight from political people it will be discussed in the news anyway and I couldn't be bothered about the private lives of singers actors and other so called celebritiesThis one is way different most of the book is about a young jew trying to survive in Poland between 1939 1945 OK there are a few books on exactly the same topic but this one is factual I trust the writer e

Mein Leben

Marcel Reich Ranicki viel bewundert und viel gescholten war so bekannt und populär so einflussreich und schließlich auch so umstritten wie wohl kein deutscher Kritiker zuvor Mit seinem Literarischen uartett bewies er dass die Vermittlung von anspruchsvoller Literatur im Fernsehen höchst unterhaltsam sein kann Was steckt hinter Reich Ranickis unvergleichlichem Aufstieg hinter diesem unglaublichen Erfolg Als er kaum neun Jahre alt aus seiner polnisc. This had been on the back burner for a while thanks to Clive James s typically over enthusiastic writeup in Cultural Amnesia But it was Reich Ranicki s passing last September that spurred me to find an affordable copy in English which took some work I can t think of an analogue for him in any other culture A germanophone Polish Jew who physically and mentally survived the Warsaw ghetto thanks in no small part to his undying faith in humanism and the German Enlightenment who then rose to become the pre eminent literary critic of the BRD and later united Germany It is a work of two halves his childhood wartime experiences on the one and his career on the other For obvious reasons this can only result in a decrescendo but the sum of the individual parts make up for any underlying flaw in structure The translation is beautiful I m told by German friends and by James that R R s German is peerless and a joy to read For anglophones there is an endless parade of German writers completely unknown unless you are someone like James or Michael Dirda His judgments on authors ring true and clear A great man

Or der deutschen Barbarei Im Jahre 1938 wird Reich Ranicki nach Polen deportiert Als Jude erfährt er im Warschauer Getto die schrecklichsten Demütigungen die Menschen Menschen bereiten können Zusammen mit seiner Frau Tosia überlebt er das Inferno Im Polen der Nachkriegsjahre wird er Kommunist und Zeuge des größten Verrats an der Idee einer gerechten Gesellschaft 1958 kehrt er nach Deutschland zurück und wird beinahe sofort als Kritiker anerkan. I had to think a long while before I decided to write something about this book but it is one of the best books I have read for a long time I read the book in the original German Version Born in 1920 in Poland but grew up in Germany Marcel Reich Ranicki is a well known figure in Germany As you can imagine his life was certainly not easy in Germany especially as he was Jewish The book is divided into sections before the war during the war after the war and today He tells of his school days in Berlin Although the Nazis were slowly taking over in the 1930 s he speaks of his teachers in a realistic way He explains that not all were so bad and although he also could not participate in certain lessons as it was not allowed he managed to get by His life was literature and I think he just read everything that was important He mentions all the well known German authors and explains aspects of their writing He knew most of them personally Thomas Mann Anna Seghers Ingeborg Bachmann Max Frisch G nter Grass etc etc Probably some of these names are not so well known in the english speaking countries but I can only perhaps advise to have a look in Internet for further information As a Polish Jew he was sent back to Poland and at the beginning of the war lived in the Ghetto in Warsaw until it was destroyed by the Germans During this time he married and is still married to the same woman today His family were all killed during the war and he escaped with his wife in Warsaw where they spent the remaining years of the war hidden by a German couple in their cellar during the dayMarcel Reich Raniski was not allowed to go to university and all his knowledge was self taught He decided he wanted to become a literature critic as a young man After the war he was in Poland for many years but was not happy He returned to Germany eventually where he was employed by various newspapers as a literature critic his dream job The years went past and he became well known as one of the best although perhaps not all authors would agree He is known as being a bit ruthless sometimes in what he says but he is a sort of pope in Germany as a criticI remember a programme on tv the Literature uartett where every week new book releases were discussed Marcel Reich Ranicki lead the discussions and very well
