Book Description:
'Aus der Sicht von heute liest sich 'Sapphira und die Sklavin' als ein historisches Dokument mehr noch als zur Zeit des Erscheinens, 1940, als in den amerikanischen Suedstaaten immerhin noch strenge Rassentrennung herrschte. Doch schon damals sah die Kritik in dem Roman die Wiedergabe einer Gesellschaft, Kultur und Soziologie, in der ein Konflikt von Moralvorstellungen und Philosophien eine innere, immer dichter angezogene Sprungfeder erzeugt. Willa Cather will den Konflikt darstellen, nicht ueber Gut und Boese entscheiden und kein Urteil faellen.' (Sabina Lietzmann) From today s view 'Sapphira und die Sklavin' can be seen as a historic document more so than at its publishing date, 1940, when there was still strict division of races in the American South. However, by its publishing date, this novel was a criticism of society, culture and sociology, in which a conflict of moral images and philosophies create a tightening elastic spring. Willa Cather wants to demonstrate the conflictwithout deciding about Good and Bad and without passing judgement. (Sabina Lietzmann)
