Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history. What he discovers is solace in that most human quality, imagination. Meet Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, pacifist, correspondent with Stephen Hawking and Ringo Starr. He is nine years old. And he is on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. His mission is to find the lock that fits a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. An inspired innocent, Oskar is alternately endearing, exasperating, and hilarious as he careens from Central Park to Coney Island to Harlem on his search. Along the way he is always dreaming up inventions to keep those he loves safe from harm. What about a birdseed shirt to let you fly away? What if you could actually hear everyone's heartbeat? His goal is hopeful, but the past speaks a loud warning in stories of those who've lost loved ones before. As Oskar roams New York, he encounters a motley assortment of humanity who are all survivors in their own way. He befriends a 103-year-old war reporter, a tour guide who never leaves the Empire State Building, and lovers enraptured or scorned. Ultimately, Oskar ends his journey where it began, at his father's grave. But now he is accompanied by the silent stranger who has been renting the spare room of his grandmother's apartment. They are there to dig up his father's empty coffin.

Extrem gut und unglaublich gelungen – der neue Roman von Jonathan Safran Foer Wie wunderbar er erzählen kann, hat Jonathan Safran Foer schon in seinem ersten Roman Alles ist erleuchtet bewiesen. Mit der unvergesslichen Geschichte des kleinen Oskar Schell, der am 11. September den Vater verloren hat, zeigt Foer erneut sein literarisches Können. Ein mutiges Buch, gefühlsstark, traurig und komisch zugleich. Oskar Schell ist neun Jahre alt. Wie er auf seiner Visitenkarte mitteilt, ist er Pazifist, Erfinder, Schmuckdesigner, Tamburinspieler. Vor allem aber ist er tief traurig und verstört über den Tod seines Vaters. Mit dem Tamburin läuft Oskar durch New York, auf der Suche nach einem Türschloss, in das ein geheimnisvoller Schlüssel aus den Hinterlassenschaften des Vaters passen könnte. Auf dieser Odyssee begegnet Oskar, der den Grund für den sinnlosen Tod des Vaters herausfinden will, vielen ungewöhnlichen Menschen und gerät in aberwitzige Abenteuer. Verbunden mit Oskars Geschichte ist die seiner deutschen Großeltern, die nach der Bombardierung Dresdens, gezeichnet von Trauer und Verlust, nach New York geflüchtet sind. Drei Schicksale, drei Stimmen. Foer gelingt es, das bewegende Schicksal einer Familie darzustellen und zu zeigen, dass Schmerz und Komik, Sprachlosigkeit und Absurdität unglaublich nah beieinander liegen. Der Text ist durchzogen von Bildern,

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Anglistik American Studies), course: Graduate Seminar American Studies- 9/11 in American Literature and Popular Culture, language: English, abstract: After a traumatizing event it is psychologically well-known that adequate words are hard to find in order to express emotions and fears. As an example, 9/11 was not only a worldchanging tragedy; it also influenced and radically changed the personal lives of many, having to cope with loss and trauma. Looking at post- 9/11 fictional novels, Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a story about nine-year old Oskar who has lost his father in the World Trade Center on the day of the attacks. It describes his journey through New York City, trying to find a lock belonging to a key he found of his deceased father. Interpreting the novel as a trauma narrative, the story evokes themes of loss and coping, not only of Oskar but also of his mother and grandparents. Because mourning oftentimes leads to aporia, Jonathan Safran Foer employs a wide range of stylistic heterogeneity, representing the unspeakable in numerous ways throughout the

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Koblenz-Landau (Anglistik), course: 20th Century Novels, language: English, abstract: Trauma seems to me being an essential topic to discuss in school as everybody sooner or later has to deal with loss or already dealt with it in the past. As every student can identify with this potential challenge, it is important for them to get to know different ways of dealing with trauma. Foer's story even reveals that coping with trauma is able to bring people from different races and ages together. Even if people's trauma is caused by different events there will be a connection between these people. Moreover, it would be possible to teach this topic interdisciplinary and interdisciplinary in ethics or religious education classes. As everyone could be affected by trauma I determined this topic for my planned lesson. The reason for choosing the subtopics namely 'inventing' and 'heavy boots' referring to Oskar; Grandfather Schell's 'aphasia' and 'the doorknobs' and finally, 'supressing' and 'the feeling of being needed' with regard to Grandmother Schell reveal concreteness for the main topic. I decided to teach the topic by group

Leo ist Abiturient und weiß, worauf es im Leben ankommt. Das Boss-Sakko sitzt, der Bizeps ist definiert. Er weiß, auf welchem Parkplatz an der Schule er seinen Wagen abstellen muss, um seine Position in der Rangordnung der Clique zu behaupten, er weiß, mit welchem Mädchen er sich sehen lassen kann. Und er weiß auch, welche Gras-Sorte man auf Koks raucht, um nicht zu kollabieren. Ihm gehört die Welt. Er will nach ganz oben. Wie seine Freunde auch. Gemeinsam und gegeneinander kämpfen sie um die Pole Position und um Perfektion. Als bei einer Jachtparty alte Rechnungen beglichen werden, wird aus dem Spiel um Macht und Prestige bitterer Ernst. „Subtiler, präziser und kälter als Victor Witte hat in den letzten Jahren wohl niemand das Lebensgefühl einer wohlstandsverwahrlosten, emotional depravierten und moralisch komplett freidrehenden Jugend eingefangen. Wäre Bret Easton Ellis in den Nuller Jahren in der Berliner Peripherie aufgewachsen, er hätte dieses Buch geschrieben.“ Thomas Klupp „Victor Wittes Roman atmet den Zeitgeist einer ganz neuartigen Generation zwanghaft selbstreflektierter, aber völlig von sich entfremdeter Teenager. Ein Buch wie der erste Orgasmus beim Masturbieren in der Pubertät und das beklemmende Gefühl danach.“ Lars Eidinger „Ein beeindruckendes Debüt.“ Tom Schilling

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Englisch - Pädagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Universität Stuttgart (Institut für Literaturwissenschaft, Abteilung Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Fachdidaktik: Teaching literature in the language classroom, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Verlauf des Seminars wurden etliche Techniken vorgestellt, fremdsprachlichen Literaturunterricht zu gestalten. Betrachtet man die seit dem Schuljahr 2004/2005 verbindlichen Bildungsstandards, welche unter dem Anspruch stehen, die Lernkultur an Gymnasien zu verbessern, so wird deutlich, dass literarische Texte aus dem Bildungsplan der allgemein bildenden Gymnasien nicht wegzudenken sind. Seit Einführung der Bildungsstandards wird Bildung nicht mehr als abrufbares Wissen verstanden, sondern ganzheitlich betrachtet; die Schule soll Kinder zur Selbstständigkeit erziehen und bei der Entwicklung ihrer Persönlichkeit weiterhelfen. Für den Unterricht bedeutet dies natürlich auch, dass die Methoden, die bislang Anwendung fanden, überdacht werden müssen, denn es stellt sich die Frage, ob die herkömmlichen analytischen Verfahren Ansprüchen wie "Stärkung der Persönlichkeit, musisch-ästhetische Erziehung und die Einübung von Urteilsfähigkeit und Verantwortung" (Ministerium für Kultus, Jugend und Sport Baden-Württemberg 2003:4) fächerübergreifend genügen können. Dem Fach Englisch fällt dabei sicher eine Schlüsselfunktion zu, da es erstens wie das Fach Deutsch "gerade auch im Bereich der Kommunikation [..] und des Schreibens auf vielfältig Weise Anstoß zum Erlernen von Kreativität
