Sinossi

David Vogel has long been regarded as a leading figure of Hebrew literature, and his work has been compared to that of Joseph Roth, Thomas Mann, and Franz Kafka.

In the Sanatorium was Vogel’s first published work of fiction, translated here into English for the first time. It is set in a charitable Jewish hospital for consumptives, where death is always close, desire is heightened, and breaking the rules is exciting. In his depiction of the sanatorium’s hothouse atmosphere, Vogel masterfully portrays the far-reaching effects of the decadence that was so prevalent in early-twentieth-century Europe.

Written in 1932, Facing the Sea tells the story of a couple spending the summer on the French Riviera. Their idyllic holiday, however, ends up testing their relationship in ways they never thought possible. Deeply evocative of a bygone era, and intensely erotic, it shows Vogel at the height of his powers.

Published together, these two novellas celebrate the legacy of one of the twentieth century’s great writers.

Di Eric Maroney - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
Two Novellas, by David Vogel, a Hebrew writer who was murdered during the Holocaust, has the benefit of having for the first time in English translation his first published work, In the Sanatorium. The other novella, Facing the Sea, has been published previously in English, both in Vogel’s collected work, and in collections of Hebrew writing.

David Vogel was a pivotal figure in Hebrew modernism. These two prose works feature some of the preoccupations of modernist works. In the Sanitarium, in the vein of The Magic Mountain, questions the assumption of health and illness, and the manner in which they are treated. These themes, in turn, reflect upon the health, or lack of health, of European Society at large.

Facing the Sea confronts atavistic sexuality in a way similar, but not identical, the D.H. Lawrence. Both Lawrence and Vogel viewed sex as the major imperative of people’s motivations, but for Lawrence, the redemptive force of eroticism far outweighed its conflicts. For Vogel, sex has a largely degenerative effect on people, despite its great draw.

These translations give English readers the opportunity to see how an early Hebrew writer tackled very current issues in an ancient language speedily moving toward modernity.
