If you are not German then there's a good chance you've never heard of Marcel Reich Ranicki pronounced Reich like that thing the Nazis tried to build Ranicki like ranitzky In Germany up until his death last year he was the guy for German high culture if there was a controversial new German book at least one TV station would interview him The biggest newspapers put him on the cover when he wrote a important critiue most famously this cover With a few others he had a huge weekly TV show in which they argued about new and old books Like all Germans I grew up with the guy at my parents' place there's two of the book collections he put out each collection a case of about 20 big books with the to Reich Ranicki most important German literature In 1999 he published his autobiography and it's greatFrom now on spoilersRoughly split into two parts the first one being Marcel Reich Ranicki's youth in Poland and Berlin then his internment in the Jewish ghetto in Warschau how he lost his entire family to Treblinka married his wife in the ghetto the story of how he met her wow how he escaped with tons of luck was hidden by a Polish worker until the Soviet army invaded Poland in 1944 and he was freeThe second part of the book is his short work for the Polish government as a kind of Till Eulenspiegel spy who doesn't know anything about his work and receives no orders then his disenchantment with Communist Poland his move to Germany and his rise to become the biggest critic of German literature publishing articles weekly being in constant contact with all famous writers of Germany after 1945 He never even went to university apart from high school he was completely self taught AmazingThe first part should interest everyone the detached way he writes about the loss of so many people close to him kills you The second part is probably only of interest to Germans or those who are into modern German literature People like Günter Grass Anna Seghers great story about Reich Ranicki realizing that she didn't understand her own work Wolfgang Koeppen Golo Mann Stefan Fest and make up the bulk of this part how cool was Wolfgang Koeppen and if these names don't tell you anything then the second part will bore youThere is however a great short anecdote in that part in which Joachim Fest invited Albert Speer Hitler's architect and close associate free after 15 years of prison and Reich Ranicki to the same book release and it's a small miracle Reich Ranicki didn't murder Speer on the spot I might haveThroughout both parts the love for literature and music abounds full of uotes so this book is a treat for fans of literature I read through the 500 pages in one or two days Last month a new collection of older essays on German literature was published in Germany can't wait to read itNot recommended for If you're not into books you'll probably be bored But what are you doing on Goodreads then

Marcel Reich Ranicki viel bewundert und viel gescholten war so bekannt und populär so einflussreich und schließlich auch so umstritten wie wohl kein deutscher Kritiker zuvor Mit seinem Literarischen uartett bewies er dass die Vermittlung von anspruchsvoller Literatur im Fernsehen höchst unterhaltsam sein kann Was steckt hinter Reich Ranickis unvergleichlichem Aufstieg hinter diesem unglaublichen Erfolg Als er kaum neun Jahre alt aus seiner polnisc. I think you can say without exaggeration that Marcel Reich Ranicki was one of the greatest literary critics in Germany Since he passed away two years ago I wanted to read his autobiography which was published in 1999There are ups and downs in this book just like in any life I guess It comes as no big surprise that the downs in his life are the highlights of this book; and vice versa The most desperate and dangerous time were the years he had to spend in the Warschaw Getto during World War 2 He was lucky to get out of there alive while his parents and brother were killed by the Nazis This is by far the most moving part of the bookLater after he became famous in Germany the book sort of drifts into a name dropping mode and here his high handed nature comes to the fore I watched uite a few of his appearances on TV Das Literarische uartett and I could see he hardly ever deviates from its positions on books or authors and he represents those positions vehemently against his discussion partners sometimes even rude He was no easy person to deal with that's for sure On the other hand he was very well read I think there wasn't a book of any literary value he hasn't read in his life Very impressiveIn the second half of his biography the encounters with different authors are the best parts to me I already knew most of this from the TV series called Lauter schwierige Patienten nothing but difficult patients If you understand German and have an interest in German literature I highly recommend to check this out In fact those 12 broadcasts 45 minutes each are a good substitution for the greater part of the second half of this book links below in the comments sectionThe first part I can recommend to anyone who is interested in modern history This part can also be read as a historical document of the time period 1938 1945You can think of Marcel Reich Ranicki as you like love him or hate him but you have to admit he was never dull and the German literary scene has become poorer without himUpdate 926I just found out how to uery the X Ray Information of a book on my Kindle it's an SLITE Database So let's drop some names too Here are the authors from the book whose name appear at least ten times in the textName                   MentionsBertolt Brecht               55Thomas Mann                  54Heinrich Böll                43Wolfgang Koeppen             35Walter Jens                  33Johann Wolfgang von Goethe   31Ernst Nolte                  29Günter Grass                 28Elias Canetti                27Heinrich Heine               25Golo Mann                    24Theodor W Adorno            22Erich Kästner                21Ingeborg Bachmann            21Friedrich Schiller           19Stanislaw Jerzy Lec          19Siegfried Lenz               18Theodor Fontane              18Martin Walser                18Max Frisch                   18Franz Kafka                  17Hugo von Hofmannsthal        15Arnold Zweig                 14Rainer Maria Rilke           13Gotthold Ephraim Lessing     13Thomas Bernhard              13Klaus Mann                   12Anna Seghers                 12Hans Mayer                   12Heinrich Mann                11Hermann Hesse                10Friedrich Sieburg            10Gerhart Hauptmann            10 This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 30 Unported License

Or der deutschen Barbarei Im Jahre 1938 wird Reich Ranicki nach Polen deportiert Als Jude erfährt er im Warschauer Getto die schrecklichsten Demütigungen die Menschen Menschen bereiten können Zusammen mit seiner Frau Tosia überlebt er das Inferno Im Polen der Nachkriegsjahre wird er Kommunist und Zeuge des größten Verrats an der Idee einer gerechten Gesellschaft 1958 kehrt er nach Deutschland zurück und wird beinahe sofort als Kritiker anerkan. I had to think a long while before I decided to write something about this book but it is one of the best books I have read for a long time I read the book in the original German Version Born in 1920 in Poland but grew up in Germany Marcel Reich Ranicki is a well known figure in Germany As you can imagine his life was certainly not easy in Germany especially as he was Jewish The book is divided into sections before the war during the war after the war and today He tells of his school days in Berlin Although the Nazis were slowly taking over in the 1930's he speaks of his teachers in a realistic way He explains that not all were so bad and although he also could not participate in certain lessons as it was not allowed he managed to get by His life was literature and I think he just read everything that was important He mentions all the well known German authors and explains aspects of their writing He knew most of them personally; Thomas Mann Anna Seghers Ingeborg Bachmann Max Frisch Günter Grass etc etc Probably some of these names are not so well known in the english speaking countries but I can only perhaps advise to have a look in Internet for further information As a Polish Jew he was sent back to Poland and at the beginning of the war lived in the Ghetto in Warsaw until it was destroyed by the Germans During this time he married and is still married to the same woman today His family were all killed during the war and he escaped with his wife in Warsaw where they spent the remaining years of the war hidden by a German couple in their cellar during the dayMarcel Reich Raniski was not allowed to go to university and all his knowledge was self taught He decided he wanted to become a literature critic as a young man After the war he was in Poland for many years but was not happy He returned to Germany eventually where he was employed by various newspapers as a literature critic his dream job The years went past and he became well known as one of the best although perhaps not all authors would agree He is known as being a bit ruthless sometimes in what he says but he is a sort of pope in Germany as a criticI remember a programme on tv; the Literature uartett where every week new book releases were discussed Marcel Reich Ranicki lead the discussions and very well
