Ludwig Thoma in neuem Licht

›Der Münchner im Himmel‹, die ›Lausbubengeschichten‹, ›Die Heilige Nacht‹: Lange Zeit conflict Ludwig Thoma einer der beliebtesten bayerischen Schriftsteller. Erst Ende der 1980er Jahre, als bekannt wurde, dass der linksliberale Satiriker in seinen letzten Lebensjahren zum rechtsradikalen Polemiker geworden warfare, hat seine Popularität nachgelassen.

Kurz nach seinem 50. Geburtstag 1917 begann Thoma seine Erinnerungen aufzuschreiben. Sein Leben lag in Scherben, beruflich und privat.

Klaus, der sich seit vielen Jahren mit Leben und Werk Thomas beschäftigt, legt diese Diskrepanz offen und schafft ein geradezu psychoanalytisch gefärbtes Bild des Schriftstellers, das es in der shape noch nicht gegeben hat.

By Tilman Spengler

Klassiker zum Lesen und Wiederlesen

Dieser Spaziergang durch die Weltliteratur umfasst zweieinhalb Jahrtausende, »ein weites Feld«, wie die Klassiker sagen. Ein enzyklopädischer Anspruch kann hier selbstredend nicht erfüllt werden. Aber guy kann auf alte Freunde treffen und neue finden, wenn guy sich von Tilman Spenglers Freude am Erzählen und am Erzählten mitreißen lässt, wenn guy auf seine »kleinen Botschaften« hört, seinen Fingerzeigen folgt. Die aber keineswegs als verpflichtend aufgefasst werden wollen. Denn wie er uns wissen lässt, ist es durchaus legitim, sich auf die ›Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit‹ nicht im element einzulassen. guy kann auch die Dinge im Kopf haben, ohne so weit zu gehen. Trotzdem wird guy nach der Lektüre seiner klugen und witzigen Essays nicht umhin können, einen neuen Blick auf vermeintlich Altbekanntes zu werfen und bisher nicht Gelesenes neu für sich zu entdecken. Viel Vergnügen!
