The monarch butterfly, one of the most seemingly delicate of all of nature’s animals, proves to be one of the toughest in this reader.

Erinnerung sprich

Author: Vladimir Nabokov
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783644002241
Release Date: 2018-10-23
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Nabokov schrieb die Fassung seiner Lebenserinnerung zwischen 1943 und 1951 in den Vereinigten Staaten. Sie umfasst die Jahre 1899 bis 1940, die Kindheit in Russland und die Exiljahre in Europa. Er gab ihr den Titel «Conclusive Evidence» («... schlüssige Beweise dafür, dass es mich wirklich gegeben hat ...»). 1964 wurde dann eine zweite, wesentlich erweiterte Fassung in den USA publiziert, die 1984 in Deutschland unter dem Titel «Sprich, Erinnerung, sprich» herauskam. Es war nicht Nabokovs Ziel, eine Chronik der Erinnerung zu schreiben. «Ich gestehe, dass ich nicht an die Zeit glaube», sagte er einmal. Ihn interessierte es, «die thematischen Muster das Leben hindurch zu verfolgen». So erzählen die fünfzehn Kapitel die ersten Jahre der Kindheit zwar chronologisch, greifen aber dann zuweilen vor: Die Erinnerung führt aus den Wäldern um Wyra, dem Landsitz der Familie, über die französische Atlantikküste auf die Berghänge von Telluride, Colorado, aber immer wieder greift sie zurück auf das verlorene Paradies der Kindheit. «Vor der völligen Auslöschung konnte er das Verlorene nur auf eine Weise bewahren: indem er es in einer extravaganten Anspannung des Gedächtnisses genau und farbig rekonstruierte.» (Dieter E. Zimmer)
