Read full description of the books Tauben im Gras:

"Tauben im Gras", 1951 erstmals erschienen, ist der erste Roman jener "Trilogie des Scheiterns", mit der Wolfgang Koeppen eine erste kritische Bestandsaufnahme der sich formierenden Bundesrepublik Deutschland gab. Mit Vehemenz und unerbittlicher Schärfe analysiert Koeppen die Rückstände jener Ideologien und Verhaltensweisen, die zu Faschismus und Krieg geführt haben und die schließlich in den fünfziger Jahren die Restauration der überkommenen Verhältnisse protegierten. Dabei ist das literarische Verfahren von "Tauben im Gras" ein kaleidoskopartiges: Der ganze Roman schildert Gestalten und Vorgänge eines einzigen Tages im München des Jahres 1949. Mit einer Fülle genauer atmospärischer Details zeichnet Koeppen den Nachkriegsalltag dieser Stadt, die sein Protagonist, der verhinderte Schriftsteller Philipp, wie ein Schlachtfeld erlebt, wie ein undurchdringliches "Pandämonium".

Read information about the author

Ebook Tauben im Gras read Online! Wolfgang Arthur Reinhold Koeppen (June 23, 1906 – March 15, 1996) was a German novelist and one of the best known German authors of the post-war period.

He started as a journalist. In 1934 his first novel appeared while he was in the Netherlands. In 1947, Koeppen received a book contract to rewrite the memoirs of the philatelist and Holocaust survivor Jakob Littner (born 1883 in Budapest, died 1950 in New York City). The resulting novel caused some controversy based on whether Koeppen was given a written manuscript to guide his work on Littner, and the novel never sold well. In 1992, a new edition was published, which led to the discovery of Littner's original text. In 2000, Littner's original manuscript was published in English and in 2002, in German.
In 1951, Koeppen had published his novel Tauben im Gras (Pigeons on the Grass), which utilized a stream of consciousness literary technique and is considered a significant work of German-language literature by Germany's foremost literary critic Marcel Reich-Ranicki. "Das Treibhaus" (1953) was translated into English as "The Hothouse" (2001) and was named a Notable Book by the "New York Times" and one of the Best Books of the Year by the "Los Angeles Times." Koeppen's last major novel Der Tod in Rom (Death in Rome) was published in 1954. In the ensuing years, Koeppen found it difficult to complete longer works.

Between 1962 and 1987, Koeppen received numerous literary prizes in the Federal Republic of Germany. In 1962 he was awarded the Georg Büchner Prize.
