Das Werk "David Copperfield", (Originaltitel "David Copperfield or The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery (Which He Never Meant to Publish on Any Account)") ist ein Bildungsroman des englischen Schriftstellers Charles Dickens aus dem Jahr 1849/50. Der Roman wurde zunächst, wie die meisten von Dickens' Werken, als monatliche Fortsetzungsgeschichte mit je zwei Illustrationen von Phiz für einen Schilling konzipiert und später überarbeitet. Viele Elemente der Geschichte folgen Ereignissen aus Dickens' eigenem Leben, "David Copperfield" gilt daher als der am stärksten autobiographisch geprägte Roman seines Gesamtwerkes. Dickens selbst bezeichnete "David Copperfield" als seine Lieblingsgeschichte.

Mein gelobtes Land

Triumph und Tragödie Israels

Category: Political Science

Page: 592

View: 2201

Die große Geschichte Israels Der renommierte Journalist Ari Shavit sieht Israel in einer halt- und ausweglosen Lage: als jüdisch-westlicher Staat in einer arabisch-islamischen (Um-)Welt seit seiner Gründung in der Existenz bedroht, andererseits Okkupationsmacht über ein anderes, das palästinensische Volk. Der Innovationskraft und Lebensfreude seiner Menschen stehen ein bröckelndes Gemeinwesen, zermürbende Konflikte, militärische Scheinerfolge und der Verlust internationalen Ansehens gegenüber. Was als gemeinschaftlicher hoffnungsfroher Aufbruch begann, insbesondere nach den Schrecken des Holocausts, der gemeinsame Bau von Eretz Israel, ist heute allgemeiner Desillusion und Desintegration gewichen. Shavit erzählt, zunächst auf den Spuren seines zionistischen Urgroßvaters, eine sehr persönliche Geschichte Israels während der letzten anderthalb Jahrhunderte, von Erfolgen im steten Überlebenskampf, aber auch von schuldbehafteter Tragik und unübersehbarem Niedergang.
