Gadda ha quasi settant'anni, è sopraffatto da una gloria tardiva, atterrito dai «fucili puntati» di Garzanti e Einaudi e dalle «onoranze» che gli vengono tributate, oppresso dai ricordi, straziato da un'«orrenda solitudine». Parise ha poco più di trent'anni, cinque romanzi – fra cui un bestseller, "Il prete bello" – al suo attivo e una MGb rossa; è scettico, già annoiato dal successo, forse persino sazio del suo talento, ma capace di ammirare; capisce al volo le persone e ama metterle a nudo sottoponendole a scherzi atroci.

Gadda vede nel giovane Parise «un surreale d'impeto»: gli fa leggere Darwin, cerca maldestramente di proteggerlo, si offre addirittura di prefare l. a. ristampa di "Il ragazzo morto e le comete" e "La grande vacanza", ma soprattutto non cessa di testimoniargli un affetto e una premura che sorprendono chi conosca los angeles compassata cerimoniosità dell'Ingegnere. Parise scarrozza Gadda incurante del suo terrore di essere visto, e criticato, a bordo di una rombante biposto, lo sfotte con un'irriverenza che cela una «profonda, alta ammirazione», gli dedica quattro memorabili scritti: che, insieme alle lettere che i due si scambiarono, documentano una fra le più imprevedibili e vibranti amicizie del Novecento.

Read e-book online Vom Hitlerjungen zum Freimaurer: Lebenserinnerungen (German PDF

By Heinz Kamp

ISBN-10: 3732243737

ISBN-13: 9783732243730

Lebenserinnerungen, wenn sie nicht die autobiographische Selbstsicht von Prominenten zum Thema haben, lesen sich oft als ergänzender oder gar korrigierender Beitrag zur Geschichte. Geschrieben von Zeitzeugen, denen guy zutraut, dass sie wissen müssen, wie es wirklich struggle.
Die Lebenserinnerungen von Heinz Kamp sind unspektakulär weit entfernt von solchen Motiven. Heinz Kamp erzählt von sich selbst und davon, wie er seine Zeit erlebt hat. Das hat wohl manch einer ähnlich erlebt, und weil sich viele in den geschilderten Zeitumständen und Schicksalsläufen wiederfinden können, ist das Buch so authentisch.
Heinz Kamp ist erkennbar nie in der Versuchung, aus einer höheren Warte zu bewerten und zu deuten. Er bleibt selbstkritisch bescheiden. Wie ein Roter Faden zieht sich sein Bemühen durchs Buch, sich selbst zu erkennen und trotz aller Widrigkeiten das zu finden, was once wirklich wichtig ist. Das weist schon früh auf einen inneren Entwicklungsprozess hin, der dann gewissermaßen „folgerichtig“ zum zweiten Teil des Buchtitels führt, zur Freimaurerei.
Der erste Teil mit der stellvertretenden Markierung als „Hitlerjunge“ steht unmissverständlich für Deutschlands braune Geschichte und die damit infizierten Menschen, von denen guy rückblickend sagt, sie seien um ihre Jugend betrogen worden.
Heinz Kamp, Jahrgang 1923, gehört zu dieser betrogenen iteration. Im Schicksalsjahr 1933 conflict er 10 Jahre jung und hatte als „Pimpf“ des „Führers“ Lebenslauf und das „Horst-Wessel-Lied“ auswendig zu lernen. Als der Krieg ausbrach, struggle er sixteen, als alles verloren battle, 22 Jahre jung. Als verwundeter Kriegsgefangener erlebte er die totale Katastrophe. Ende und Anfang. Eine prägende Zeit, die einen Menschen zerstören, aber auch aufbauen kann.
Hier erzählt jemand, der das alles erlebt hat, jemand, der Orientierung suchte und schließlich fand, der Familie gegründet und Kindern gesagt hat, wie alles warfare und wie alles weiter gehen kann.
Heinz Kamp erzählt sein Leben. guy hört ihm gerne mit Anteilnahme und Gewinn zu.
