    One thought on “The Spider's Web”

    1. δυνατό βιβλίο ''ο ιστός της αράχνης'' του γιόζεφ ροτ.ο κεντρικός χαρακτήρας, ο τέοντορ λόζε, είναι πρών στρατιωτικός, εθνικιστής, αντισημίτης, μέλος παρακρατικών οργανώσεων και μοναδικός στόχος της ζωής του είναι η ανάδειξή του σε ηγετική προσωπικότητα της χώρας του. για να [...]

    2. Bevreemdend, intens, bijna verloren gegaan en oorspronkelijk als feuilleton verschenen romandebuut uit 1923 van de grote Roth. Het is het huiveringwekkende verhaal van de gedesillusioneerde Theodor Lohse, een luitenant die teleurgesteld teruggekeerd is uit de Eerste Wereldoorlog (rings a bell!) en in Berlijn betrokken raakt bij een extreem-rechtse, geheime organisatie die haar hoofdkwartier in München heeft en in contact staat met Hitler en Ludendorff (die sporadisch opduiken in de roman). Verr [...]

    3. A dark, vivid little novel that follows the fortunes of an ambitious young man involving himself in right-wing maneuverings during the Weimar Republic. Not especially intelligent, but brutal enough to be effective in times when brutality was in the ascendant. He is, of course being manipulated by everyone, including a Jewish double- or more- agent who stands out as the most remarkable character in this book: sly, patient, cynical but with a hidden fervour.

    4. Ανατριχιαστικά προφητικό, το ντεμπούτο του Ροτ εξελίσσεται την περίοδο του Μεσοπολέμου όταν ο ναζισμός έκανε τα πρώτα του δυνατά βήματα

    5. Историята на завърналия се от Първата световна война лейтенант Теодор Лозе е показателна за онзи кипеж, родил националсоциализма от поствоенната мътилка. Още с първите няколко страници, в които се срещаме с младия лейтенант, Йозеф Рот прави силна заявка за своя талант, иро [...]

    6. Skriven som en faktabok om en romanhändelse snarare än en roman. Historikern i mig tilltalas väldigt av boken men romanälskaren saknar ett djup i berättelsen.

    7. Joseph Roth stond al een hele tijd bij mij in de wachtrij, en ik vraag me nu af waarom zo lang. Hotel Savoy (1924) las ik gisteren uit, vandaag Het spinnenweb, zijn eerste roman (1923): wat een bijzonder talent! Beiden heb ik ontleend uit de bib, maar ik vrees dat ik voor mijn eigen collectie verwoed verder uit hamsteren ga. En dan moet bijvoorbeeld ook Stefan Zweig nog volgen Het wordt een heel druk jaar!

    8. A prophetic (the book was written in 1923) descent into the abyss of nationalism and fascism in Germany's 1920's through the eyes of Theodor Lohse, an ambitious, yet average lieutenant, who quickly understands that his fastest ticket to the upper crust of society is to belong to an underground right-wing organization, bent on beating up socialists, communists and Jews. Not terribly smart, but without scruples, his lack of self-respect and humanity soon bring fruit. His dealings bring him to use [...]

    9. Joseph Roth hat mit diesem frühen Roman eine unglaubliche Weitsicht bewiesen. Der im Jahr 1923 - im Jahr des Hitler/Ludendorff Putsches - handelt von Theodor Lohse, einem Karrieristen, der mit Hilfe eines gewissenlosen jüdischen Spitzels und mit eigener Brutalität, Ahnungslosigkeit und Minderwertigkeitskomplexen in den verschwörerischen rechtsnationalen Kreisen zu einer Art jungem Hitler aufsteigt und nimmt damit sensibel die Stimmungen dieser stürmischen Zeit auf. Negativ fällt indes auf, [...]

    10. Este libro debería ser una lectura obligatoria en los colegios.Joseph Roth describe en pocas páginas el envilecimiento de una sociedad destruida por la Primera Guerra Mundial, los intereses económicos de unos pocos, el estallido social y la mediocridad política.

    11. More of a description and depiction of a sensitive and misty era of the human history and less of a tale, this book manages to capture the climax that created,cultivated and fed the rise of fasism in Europe and especially in Germany that finally led to the catastrophic World War II.Through the eyes of a young man, who is being used as an example to show us how in a period of crisis,poverty and suffering, devious people find their way to the top, we get to know the general image of a society in p [...]

    12. I was hoping to get some insight in Germany's post WW1 tribulations, the rise of the freikorpsen etc, but Roth excels in vagueness in his first novel (even though this book would turn out to be visionary). There's little action going on here. Not even two weeks later i have a hard time recalling what this book was about. Alte Kämpfer" from Stefan Olivier provides a way more direct, action fueled and gripping account of the rise of the nazis, but is completely overlooked whereas" The spider's we [...]

    13. Roth's descriptive writing is beautiful, but this feels like a practice for a more detailed book. It deals with the rise of an ambitious young man Theodor Lohse, who gets caught in the wave of aggressive development repression and anti-semitism of Germany during the period after WW1. However I have found it unmemorable despite his poetic descriptions. The ending feels rushed and inconclusive and question what he was actually trying to say, but am not quite sure whether I care. His empathy is cle [...]

    14. çeviride mi sıkıntı bilmiyorum ama bir türlü kitaba tutunamadım. sanırım abartılı politik şeyleri sevemiyorum. her ne kadar kitap öngürü sahibi olsa da eksik bir şeyler var. çözemedim. tek altını çizdiğim cümle; insanların iyi olmak zorunda kaldığı, büyülerinin bozulduğu akşamlar vari diye düşündü theodor.

    15. Theodore Lohse, een Duitse oudstrijder uit de eerste wereldoorlog, ontpopt zich tot fascistisch leider. Weinig lijn in het verhaal, wel mooie impressie van de gistende jaren 20 en 30. Rare, fluctuerende stijl

    16. A brief, but densely packed novella chronicling the career of a rootless and biddable agent provocateur in Germany in the 1920s. Roth's prose is highly polished, allusive and repays careful study. Not an epic canvas, but a beautifully crafted miniature.

    17. Een mooi begin, maar na verloop van tijd loopt het verhaal weg, als ene Sebastian ten tonele wordt gevoerd, er een aanslag wordt voorbereid en Theodore Lohse met verarmde adel trouwt. Te veel thema's binnen kort bestek.

    18. This is an interesting representation of post-WWI Germany, with some surprisingly accurate predictions.But it's still a bore.

    19. Мрачният реализъм и пророчеството на книгата буквално се давят в блатото от грешки в българското издание.

    20. Ik las de Nederlandse vertaling van Wilfred Oranje. Pittige kost. Vraagt om een extra leesbeurt. Verloren of onbekend gewaande debuut van Roth.
