Thomas Bernhard Lukas Kummer (Illustrated by) - Ein Kind

Der fünfte und letzte Band von Lukas Kummers hochgelobten Graphic Novels nach Thomas Bernhards „Autobiographischen Schriften“.

Die Geschichte einer Erziehung ohne Erzieher: Der letzte Band von Thomas Bernhards „Autobiographischen Schriften“ erzählt von den Kindheitsjahren des Autors. Am Ende der Selbsterzählung steht der Anfang, das Martyrium des jungen Thomas beginnt. Die Schande einer unehelichen Geburt und der Vorwurf der Mutter: Du hast mein Leben zerstört! stehen im Zentrum der Kindheit. Es sind Jahre des Schreckens und des Krieges, eine Zeit ohne Idylle, wenn auch nicht ohne Augenblicke des Hochgefühls: erste Freundschaften, unerwartete Siege und die enge Beziehung zum Großvater geben dem „Kind“ die Kraft, Schule und Elternhaus zu überstehen. Lukas Kummers einfühlsame Gestaltung erreicht hier einen abschließenden Höhepunkt.

Thomas Bernhard Lukas Kummer (Illustrated by) - The cold

An Isolation

His admission into the lung sanatorium Grafenhof heralded the start of a new chapter in the young Thomas Bernhard’s tale of suffering. In the isolation of the sanatorium he was at the mercy of the doctors, the nursing staff, his fellow patients and above all, himself and his will. In this hopelessness he practised revolt. It is his self-affirmation as a writer, the friendship with a musician, and singing which are stirring his will to survive and give him strength. In the end, Thomas Bernhard escapes the isolation of the lung sanatorium which is seems in Lukas Kummer’s illustrations like the coldest circle of hell, and emerges as the person we know today: one of the greatest writers of the 20th century.

Thomas Bernhard Lukas Kummer (Illustrated by) - THE BREATH

A Decision

“The Breath” forms the core of Bernhard's autobiography. It is where deepest despair and creative force are blended into the potent mix that makes his writing so unique, fascinating and boundary-breaking to this day. Bernhard was in his late teens when severe pleurisy abruptly wrenched him from his apprenticeship. He was hospitalised and considered terminally ill. But the 'room for lost causes' into which he is shunted turns out to be a place of new beginnings. Thomas Bernhard decides to live – and following the death of his grandfather resolves to become a writer himself. Lukas Kummer has found a rich and powerful imagery for this journey from near death to redemptive self-creation.

An Intimation

The causes were catastrophic: the boarding school was a prison, the town a terminal disease. There was war and there was his grandfather, who only talked to him about the masters, Mozart, Rembrandt and Beethoven. The causes were destructive, and they left indelible traces in Thomas Bernhard’s life and work.

Anyone wishing to understand Bernhard's world will find the key here. The sister comes in, grabs the washing, and throws it onto a chair beside the bath. Then she lifts my hand. All night she calls at various rooms, lifting people’s hands and feeling their pulses. She starts stripping the bed, the bed in which someone has just died. She throws the covers on the floor and then lifts my hand again, as though waiting for me to die. Then she bends down, gathers up other covers, and goes out with them. Now I want to live. (From: In the Cold) The autobiography is Thomas Bernhard's richest and most mature work. It is one of the great literary documents of our '70s. (Marcel Reich-Ranicki, FAZ)
