  1. Max Rudolph Frisch was born in 1911 in Zurich the son of Franz Bruno Frisch an architect and Karolina Bettina Frisch n e Wildermuth After studying at the Realgymnasium in Zurich, he enrolled at the University of Zurich in 1930 and began studying German literature, but had to abandon due to financial problems after the death of his father in 1932 Instead, he started working as a journalist and columnist for the Neue Z rcher Zeitung NZZ , one of the major newspapers in Switzerland With the NZZ he would entertain a lifelong ambivalent love hate relationship, for his own views were in stark contrast to the conservative views promulgated by this newspaper In 1933 he travelled through eastern and south eastern Europe, and in 1935 he visited Germany for the first time.From 1936 to 1941 he studied architecture at the ETH Zurich His first and still best known project was in 1942, when he won the invitation of tenders for the construction of a public swimming bath right in the middle of Zurich the Letzigraben.In 1947, he met Bertolt Brecht in Zurich In 1951, he was awarded a grant by the Rockefeller Trust and spent one year in the U.S After 1955 he worked exclusively as a freelance writer His experience of postwar Europe is vividly described in his Tagebuch Diary for 1946 1949 it contains the first drafts of later fictional works.During the 1950s and 1960s Frisch created some outstanding novels that explored problems of alienation and identity in modern societies These are I m Not Stiller 1954 , Homo Faber 1957 and Wilderness of Mirrors Gantenbein 1964 In addition, he wrote some highly intelligent political dramas, such as Andorra and The Fireraisers He continued to publish extracts from his diaries These included fragments from contemporary media reports, and paradoxical questionnaires, as well as personal reflections and reportage he fell in love with a woman called Antonia Quick in 1969.Max Frisch died of cancer on April 4, 1991 in Zurich Together with Friedrich D rrenmatt, Max Frisch is considered one of the most influential Swiss writers of the 20th century He was awarded an honorary degree by the University of Marburg, Germany, in 1962, Bard College 1980 , the City University of New York 1982 , the University of Birmingham 1984 , and the TU Berlin 1987 He also won many important German literature prizes the Georg B chner Preis in 1958, the Friedenspreis des Deutschen Buchhandels in 1976, and the Heinrich Heine Preis in 1989 In 1965 he won the Jerusalem Prize for the Freedom of the Individual in Society.Some of the major themes in his work are the search or loss of one s identity guilt and innocence the spiritual crisis of the modern world after Nietzsche proclaimed that God is dead technological omnipotence the human belief that everything was possible and technology allowed humans to control everything versus fate especially in Homo faber and also Switzerland s idealized self image as a tolerant democracy based on consensus criticizing that as illusion and portraying people and especially the Swiss as being scared by their own liberty and being preoccupied mainly with controlling every part of their life.Max Frisch was a political man, and many of his works make reference to or, as in Jonas und sein Veteran, are centered around political issues of the timeformation was taken fromenpedia wiki Max_Frisch

  1. Literatur hebt den Augenblick auf, dazu gibt es sie.Schlicht wunderbar und usserst gelungen Frisch erz hlt autobiografisch, ehrlich, und stilvoll von sich selbst, von seinen Lastern, Frauen, Werken, seinen Fehlern, Ehen, Kindern, seinem Verm gen, Wohnorten, Gef hlen Selten habe ich etwas pers nlicheres gelesen, spontan f llt mir nichts ein Ich freue mich auf den Film Untersuchungen von Zeit zu Zeit ergeben jedesmal dasselbe ein ideales Kardiogramm Medikamente Rat des Arztes Nehmen Sie einen Cogn [...]


  2. Montauk is Max Frisch final novel in which the mature writer he was 64 at the time gives an account of two weekend trips with a relatively young woman he has only just met This is not a story of romance These are two people who happen to like and trust each other enough to spend a few days together, without the burden of expectations with respect to a longer term commitment.Two uneventful trips to Long Island form the backbone of the narrative And Frisch sets himself the task to use this modest [...]


  3. Oh, das hat mir gefallen Es dreht sich bei Frischs Erz hlung nicht prim r um dieses Wochenende mit der jungen Frau in Montauk, soviel sei gesagt Sie ist vielmehr eine Verwebung der Zeiten, eine Verwebung der Erinnerungen und ihr Einfluss auf die gegenw rtliche Situation in Montauk Es sind kurze St cke Gedanken und Erinnerungen, Tagebuchpassagen und die Reflexion dieser, teilweise scheinbar assoziativ aufeinanderfolgend Besonders sch n f r mich Die Erinnerung an W und Money.Es ist Frisch und daru [...]


  4. Ich hatte dieses Buch vor vielen Jahren schon einmal gelesen und es war mir im Hinterkopf immer als eines der Lieblingsb cher geblieben Bei der erneuten Lekt re hat sich das best tigt Ich habe jeden Satz verschlungen und f r mich noch einmal festgestellt, wie sehr ich Frischs Klugheit, seine Gedankeng nge, seine k hle und gerade dadurch so ergreifende Art zu berichten, sch tze Jeder Satz ein Geschenk


  5. This is definitely an example of expecting a book to be entirely different from what it is The author expounds on every thought in his head This is not a relationship, weekend fling, brief affair with a younger woman book, although it seems like it should be based on the description and the cover I think I would have liked it if that had been the case Lynn will never get to know his hysteria In fact the woman of note, a much younger woman who worked for a NY publisher arranging a tour the main [...]






  6. Seelenstriptease und Reisebuch, Montauk enth lt einige unvergessliche Passagen, reicht aber in seiner Gesamtheit nicht an die Trilogie Stiller homo faber Gantenbein heran.


  7. Vom 11 Bis 12 Mai 1974 unternimmt der Erz hler, der ein Autor, eine Lesereise nach NY Der 63 Jahre alte Herr verguckt sich in die 31 Jahre alte Verlagsangestellte Lynn, die ihn betreuen soll, aber keines seiner B cher gelesen hat Die beiden unternehmen einen Wochenendausflug nach Long Island nach Montauk und haben eine kurze Aff re.Das k nnte eine nette Geschichte sein, aber nicht ohne Grund leiden Sch ler seit Jahrzehnten unter den Erz hlungen von Max Frisch, ich bin da keine Ausnahme Ich fand [...]


  8. Montauk is an autobiographical novel It tells from a lecturing trip of Frisch to the United States in 1974 In New York, he meets a young woman in her thirties He is 63 at the time.They spend a weekend together travelling to Montauk During this trip, he feels the urge to write about this presence This is what Montauk is A continous stream of consciousness on the trip with Lynn as well as a recollection of past events seen from 1974.It s a very personal book Frisch doesn t refrain from embarrassin [...]



  9. Novela experimental, de car cter autobiogr fico y abiertamente est tico, Montauk es una gran reflexi n sobre el amor, la amistad, el trabajo de escritor y la primac a del recuerdo frente a la extenuante vor gine del d a a d a A lo largo de sus p ginas, el narrador va desgranando los aspectos m s relevantes de su vida con una nostalgia y melancol a palpables, am n de un refinado estilo que en ausencia de alicientes argumentales se acaba convirtiendo en la mejor parte de una historia demasiado per [...]


  10. MONTAUK is an early version of the modern memoir, with a weekend affair serving as the frame for Max Frisch s life of relationships, marriages and the perspective of death you have in your 60s It s purposefully disorienting, shifting from first to third person, often in the same sentence, as he tries to write about the present and past simultaneously Character names are scarce, as Lynn turns to Marianne turns to Ingeborg, etc Stylistically appropriate given Frisch s career as a playwright.It can [...]


  11. I really struggled to get into this book, which I am reading for a book group Although we have been reading autobiographical works, and this is to some extent also autobiographical, it just seemed so self absorbed I got through it I did not particularly enjoy reading it I did not feel in the least bit interested in the thoughts of a middle aged author reminiscing about his life and loves whilst telling us about his brief affair in the USA The best line for me was Sie kauft sich Schuhe wie f r ei [...]


  12. Like a slowed down Speedboat or a 1970s So Much for That Winter More Manhattan than Montauk, memoir than travel A sixty something man looks back on difficult relationships and friendships, while simultaneously preserving the details of a seemingly unimportant weekend fling It s exceptional in its use of reflection and fascinating for the shifts from first to third person a narrator in dialogue with his past selves Also perfect for when you re bailing on everyone for a while, or wish you could S [...]



  13. Had not expected to like this as much as I did Possible this may get increased to five stars after some consideration.




  14. In the 1960 s and 70 s, Swiss writer Max Frisch belonged to the group of post war uber authors which included Nobel Prize winners Gunther Grass and Heinrich Boell Whilst famous at the time for his widely popular allegorical political plays and three novels Homo Faber, My Name is Gantenbein and I am not Stiller, his works have somewhat faded away in the minds of the reading public since his death in 1991 Not even an international film production of Homo Faber under the title Voyager starring Sam [...]


  15. 20.10.2016 Ich lese diese Erz hlung im Band 6 der Suhrkamp TB Ausgabe von 1986 Und das nicht zum ersten mal 26.10.2016 Beim Wiederlesen erschreckt mich die Tatsache, dass mir dieser Text schon als Zwanzigj hriger besonders nah war Dabei ist es eine Altersgeschichte die mit gro er N chternheit und ohne Larmoyanz auf Gegenw rtiges und l ngst Vergangenes zur ckblickt Kurze S tze, die Gedachtes nicht ausformulieren und einfach ungesch tzt so dastehen lassen S tze wie zum Beispiel Er braucht eine Ehe [...]


  16. Caveat lector I only read this because it features heavily in my winter reading, Martutene by Roman Saizabitoria That out of the way, this was quite dull The idea is a nice one report honestly on a hopeless love affair but for the most part the honest reporting seems to have been a few physical movements, then some uninteresting thoughts, followed by physical movements I know very well that I m not moved by this kind of thing even Greene s End of the Affair left me cold So, maybe you ll like it [...]


  17. Dies ist einer der besten B cher von Max Frisch Das Buch, das ich schon vor einigen Jahren gelesen habe, war f r mich der Grund nach Montauk zu fahren Und Montauk ist wirklich so, auch wenn es nat rlich von der alternativen Szene in New York bernommen wurde und inzwischen sehr hipp und weniger leer Aber es gibt immer noch magische Ecken Es liest sich, wie nat rlich einige B cher von Frisch, wie ein Traum, bei dem die Natur und die Landschaft mit dem Inneren des Erz hlers zu verschmelzen scheinen [...]


  18. My rating is based on the level of my enjoyment of reading Montauk No doubt the writing is beautiful, but the fragmented story, and voice constantly made me feel I was picking up a book and randomly reading any page in no particular sequence at a loss of what was going on Who he was speaking of The author claims he wanted to write a book completely removed from there being a reader He succeeded I respect that some may have embraced this experiment I did not.


  19. Deslabazada historia con algunos apartados verdaderamente insufribles, en los que nos encontramos varias p ginas, frase tras frase, sin un m sero punto y aparte que sirva para tomar aire Tiene un par de momentos buenos, como cuando habla de su amigo W pero estropeados por esos p rrafos eternos y abigarrados.


  20. Expected to read a story about an affair between Max Frisch and a younger woman who take a weekend trip to Montauk and indeed it was a story about exactly that , but was surprised in a very good way to find some beautiful reflections on his relationship with Ingeborg Bachmann.
