About the Author

Lion Feuchtwanger, novelist and dramatist, was born in Munich, Germany, the son of a wealthy manufacturer. The rise of the Nazis drove him to France, and after the collapse of that country he escaped to Spain with great difficulty. He reached the United States in 1940. A major work is his trilogy mostrar mais on the Jewish historian: Josephus (1932), The Jew of Rome (1935), and Josephus and the Emperor (1942). He was best known in Germany as a dramatist, but his international success was due to his revival of the historical novel written with modern psychological understanding.

"Гойя" 1951 - гістарычны раман Ліона Фейхтвангера аб жыцці іспанскага мастака 🧑🏼‍🎨 Францыска Гойі. Кнігу аўтар пачаў пісаць у ЗША ў 1943, куды збег ад гітлераўскай Германіі.
Раман апісваеў жыццё Гойі з 1793 да 1806. Асноўная частка рамана прысвечана сувязі 👩‍❤️‍👨 мастака з герцагіняй Альба. Але кніга цапляе не толькі любоўнымі інтрыгамі. Цікава тое, што гэта інтрыга цесна звязана з палітычным жыццём Іспаніі, дзе да гэтуль пануе інквізіцыя🔥, якая трымае ў страхе іспанскую інтелігенцыя.
Гэта кніга цікава антуражам рамантычных падзей, апісаннем той эпохі, дзе адбывалася інтрыжка. Чытач акунаецца ў жыццё іспанскага грамадства канца XVIII ст. - гамадства знатных асоб👸, кіруючых эліт. Добра апісаны маральныя ўстаноўкі таго соцыума, усе яго хібы і недарэчнасці.
Пакуль Гойя гуляў у палітыяныя гульні Іспаніі, у нашай гісторыі дзяржавы адбылося паўстанне Касцюшкі, трэці падзел Рэчы паспалітай і адыход сучасных беларускіх земляў да Расійскай Імперыі.

Like watching a car-crash in slow motion . . . but knowing the outcome before it even begins. Written in 'real time': 1933--Hitler's ascension to power and the corresponding impact on Germans, be they Jewish or Christian.

A remarkable achievement that left me wondering how Feuchtwanger can have essentially dropped out of sight of modern readers. I have several other books of his and now they need to move up the list. I cannot help but wonder how he would fare in a modern translation (mine, and I think the only one in English, is old; it was done by the indefatigable translators from the 1930s, Willa and Edwin Muir. There were some oddities but overall I thought it a very fluid job); the writing is strong and wonderfully evocative. Feuchtwanger has chosen a true story to retell and, of course, embellish. It’s one of those stories that is so unbelievable that it cannot be anything except true (and my quick researches suggest that it is largely based on history, though deviating significantly in the end. Even so, Feuchtwanger’s ending struck me as just about perfect.) It is the story of a court Jew, Joseph Süss (or Süß) Oppenheimer (1698-1738), whose extraordinary gift for finance and feel for politics leads to his position as the top financial advisor—and then, the top advisor in all ways—for the Duke Karl Alexander of Württemberg. It is the story of his rise and fall and is crammed full of politics, religion, psychology, and even sex, all in a cauldron of inconceivable wealth and power. It evokes the time and the place so brilliantly you can smell the decay. Hubris? To excess. Wisdom? Remarkably enough, more than plenty. By turns hilarious and immensely sad, it is an extraordinary book.… (mais)

This is a novel written by a German man during the first 8 months of Hitler's reign as Chancellor. It was very distressing and painful to read yet was well worth it. It is the story of a family whose adult members made different choices about whether - or when - to leave Germany after Hitler took power. The writer did, infact, leave Germany before it was too late, although not all of his relatives & friends did. He later lived in the US and wrote many other books. I intend to read at least some of them.… (mais)
