A spine tingling psychological thriller that shows tremendous depth and insight into the personalities and psychology of the characters I was fascinated by how quickly the author was able to get to the reader invested and involved in the story and the unfolding of the events, considering that this story only spans about 55 pages.The characters portrayed the reality and the ugliness of everyday life that drives people to actions unimaginable.The setting was described with enough detail to paint A spine tingling psychological thriller that shows tremendous depth and insight into the personalities and psychology of the characters I was fascinated by how quickly the author was able to get to the reader invested and involved in the story and the unfolding of the events, considering that this story only spans about 55 pages.The characters portrayed the reality and the ugliness of everyday life that drives people to actions unimaginable.The setting was described with enough detail to paint a clear picture of the German landscape without getting too caught up in that which does not serve a purpose.It is a richly told and imagined story, yet really too far removed from reality It was refreshing to read a piece of classic German literature that felt perfectly created and executed.ElliotScribbles It s not a big book and I read it during a train ride how ironic, eh So this book is heartbreaking and sad and definitely worth a read especially since it s quite the quick read It was nothing special really but I still enjoyed it and I would give it 3,5 stars. This is a very interesting example of late nineteenth century German literature From the German student s or teacher s point of view, it has the benefit of being quite short, and written mostly in easy to follow German It won t please everyone, being a tragedy, and rather a violent one at that, but it is a compelling read nonetheless In one sense, it can be seen as a commentary on the intrusion of industry into rural life, through the medium of the railroad which dominates and threatens to This is a very interesting example of late nineteenth century German literature From the German student s or teacher s point of view, it has the benefit of being quite short, and written mostly in easy to follow German It won t please everyone, being a tragedy, and rather a violent one at that, but it is a compelling read nonetheless In one sense, it can be seen as a commentary on the intrusion of industry into rural life, through the medium of the railroad which dominates and threatens to destroy the Bahnw rter is a man whose job it is to protect people from this threat On another, it seems to be a timeless commentary on innocence exploited by cunning, and how that is destroyed and perverted through the process Within the context of German literature, it is a very early work of Gerhardt Hauptmann, who would become deeply associated with the naturalists, but it seems not to be a truly naturalist book, including as much of the subjective inner lives of the characters as it does It is worthwhile for those interested in the period and author, and also a good practice read for medium level readers of German 8th grade My bearded German teacher And a very annoyed class Yep, this was not meant to happen. |Download Book ⚆ Bahnwärter Thiel ♤ Die Novelle Bahnw rter Thiel entstandund geh rt zu den herausragenden Werken des Naturalismus Thiel ist ein in sich gekehrter Mensch, der nicht viele Worte macht, sich jedoch mit den Nachbarskindern abgibt und seinen Beruf mit Hingebung ausf hrt Er ger t in einen wachsenden inneren Konflikt, als seine Frau Minna stirbt und er sich wieder verheiratet um die Versorgung seines Sohnes Tobias abzusichern Er versucht trotz wachsender Spannungen sein Leben in den gewohnten Bahnen zu halten, sieht sich jedoch mehr und mehr unf hig dazu Zusammenfassung von Eva K Read this under the table at school When Thiel kills his family in the book the teacher slapped my back and I almost had a heart attack.
