    "Der Fall Maurizius" by Jakob Wassermann was first published in 1928. It is set partly in 1908 Germany and partly during the Weimar Republic. In this work, Wassermann criticizes German pragmatism by depicting the State bureaucracy as the absolute power over citizens, even after the Imperial Era. Disgusted with the mismanagement of the justice system and with the perverse character of those in charge, the author renders German pragmatism as non-adherence to the moral values supposedly justifying the State apparatus – in particular, as a breach of the "Gerechtigkeit" principle. The harmless innocence of the adolescent Etzel von Andergast, the only child of a well-known prosecutor, highlights this violation of justice. At the same time, Waremme is a sinister character whose Jewish parents fled from Prussian-occupied Poland. He breaks with his ancestors' moral values and is eager to play a key role in the German Nationalistic movement. However, he feels frustrated with his project of cultural assimilation and is pushed towards the outskirts of a bewildered society. The crisis of values and transgression of justice become the emblems of Wassermann’s generation. Em "Der Fall Maurizius", romance de Jakob Wassermann de 1928, parcialmente ambientado em 1908, à época da República de Weimar, o autor critica o pragmatismo alemão, apoiado numa burocracia de estado que, mesmo depois do fim do Império, continua a exercer o poder de maneira absoluta. Wassermann revolta-se contra a má administração da justiça, e contra o caráter perverso daqueles que, tendo se apoderado do aparelho estatal, arrogam a si mesmos o papel de representantes dos melhores princípios do humanismo alemão. O pragmatismo, assim, apresenta-se como a falsificação daqueles valores que supostamente o legitimariam – notadamente, do princípio de Justiça, "Gerechtigkeit". A inocência de um adolescente, Etzel von Andergast, filho de um grande promotor, é o que traz à luz este estado de adulteração. Ao mesmo tempo, a figura de Waremme, descendente de judeus provenientes de regiões da Polônia ocupadas pela Prússia desde 1772, é uma figura sinistra, que rompeu com o legado ético de seus antepassados, pretendendo exercer um papel de destaque no movimento nacionalista alemão, para frustrar-se e ocupar posição marginal numa sociedade repleta de desencaminhados e perplexos. Desta forma o autor representa as aporias de uma geração que sente na pele esse exílio da justiça e a crise generalizada de valores.

  3. O Brasil de Ulrich Becher no "Romanceiro Brasileiro" : a harmonia em questão

    "Brazil – a country of the future" ("Brasilien – ein Land der Zukunft"), written by Stefan Zweig in the 40s, is one of the few books to portray Brazil as a harmonious country. However, although the book is widely acknowledged as a fine piece of work, one cannot afford to ignore that some other German authors from the same period presented other entirely different views of Brazil. This paper focuses on the novel "Romanceiro Brasileiro" by Ulrich Becher, an author relatively neglected in the Germanic studies. The primary aim is to examine some aspects of the image of Brazil. Unlike Zweig, who shows a tendency to conceal potential conflicts which could threaten his idea of a harmonious Brazil, Becher points out the contradictions and disparities of the country, focusing on aspects which contradict the idyllic image suggested by Zweig, such as Brazil's serious social problems and injustice. By doing so, Becher may have created a more plausible image of Brazil. Poucas obras marcaram tanto o imaginário acerca do Brasil como o livro de Stefan Zweig intitulado "Brasil – um país do futuro", escrito nos anos 1940. No entanto, não obstante a fama desse livro e de sua visão de um Brasil harmonioso, não se deve esquecer que existem livros de outros autores de língua alemã, escritos nessa mesma época, com visões e interpretações acerca do Brasil divergentes daquelas reveladas por Zweig. Neste artigo, são abordados alguns aspectos da imagem do Brasil presentes no "Romanceiro Brasileiro", de Ulrich Becher – um autor relativamente negligenciado pelos estudos germânicos. Zweig, na procura por benesses do governo de Getúlio Vargas, demonstra uma tendência de ocultar possíveis conflitos que poderiam ameaçar a harmonia que ele acredita ter encontrado no Brasil. Ao contrário disso, Becher – para quem esse país foi apenas um lugar de passagem - destaca justamente as contradições e dissonâncias presentes, focalizando aspectos conflitantes com uma imagem idílica, como os grandes problemas e injustiças sociais, e chega, assim, a elaborar uma imagem talvez mais plausível do Brasil.

    In his Berlin Trilogy, Uwe Timm broaches the division of Germany and the Reunification with the novels "Johannisnacht" (1996), "Rot" (2001) and "Halbschatten" (2008). In the first two novels, the memories and experiences told by the characters offer a heterogeneous panorama of the post-World War II period in both the East and the West of the country: "Johannisnacht" shows the chaos across Berlin in 1995 and the difficulties to integrate Eastern and Western Germans. In "Rot", the failure of socialism accounts for the disappointment by members of the German student movement. In "Halbschatten", the author focuses on German history before 1945, searching in Prussia’s militarist past the causes of the scenery we find in both other novels. The Invalidenfriedhof Cemetery, the oldest in Berlin, appears as a stage of historical events and a place where memory becomes concretely visible: besides uniting the military Prussian elite and important members of the Nazi army with resistance fighters, it was divided in half by the Berlin Wall. Uwe Timm thematisiert die Teilung und die Wende in seiner Berlin-Trilogie mit den Romanen "Johannisnacht" (1996), "Rot" (2001) und "Halbschatten" (2008). Bei den zwei ersten bieten die Erinnerungen und Erfahrungen der Figuren ein vielfältiges Panorama der Nachkriegszeit in Ost und West dar: In "Johannisnacht" tritt das Chaos in der Stadt im Jahr 1995 in Erscheinung sowie die Integrationsschwierigkeiten zwischen "Ossis" und "Wessis". In "Rot" gehört das Scheitern des Sozialismus in der DDR zu den Enttäuschungen der 68er. In "Halbschatten" konzentriert sich der Autor auf die Deutsche Geschichte vor 1945 und sucht die Ursachen für das Szenario der beiden ersten Romane der Trilogie in der militaristischen Vergangenheit Preußens. Der Invalidenfriedhof, der älteste der Stadt, erscheint als Bühne der Geschichte und als Ort, wo das Gedächtnis konkret wird, denn er hat nicht nur die militärische preußische Elite und mächtige Nazis mit Widerstandskämpfern vereinigt, er wurde auch von der Berliner Mauer geteilt. Uwe Timm tematiza a divisão da Alemanha e o processo de reunificação em sua "Trilogia de Berlim", com os romances "Johannisnacht" (1996), "Rot" (2001) e "Halbschatten" (2008). Nos dois primeiros, as lembranças e experiências narradas pelas personagens oferecem um panorama heterogêneo do período pós-Segunda Guerra Mundial no leste e no oeste do país: "Johannisnacht" apresenta o caos da cidade em 1995 e a dificuldade de comunicação entre "Ossis" e "Wessis", enquanto em "Rot", o fracasso da experiência socialista é parte das desilusões dos velhos ativistas do Movimento Estudantil. Por sua vez, em "Halbschatten", o autor focaliza a história alemã antes de 1945, buscando no passado militarista da Prússia as causas do cenário presente nos dois romances anteriores. O Cemitério dos Inválidos, o mais antigo da cidade, aparece como palco de eventos históricos e memória concretamente visível: além de unir a elite militar prussiana e membros do alto comando nazistas a lutadores da resistência anti-hitleriana, ele foi dividido ao meio pelo Muro de Berlim.
