The Poles claimed him as one of their own and their hearts were gladdened whenever he spoke Polish in public for which they cannot be blamed. View all 4 comments.

There are elements of allegorymyth and legendplacing it fnter the genre of magic realism. Oskar considers himself to have two “presumptive fathers”—his mother’s husband Alfred Matzerath, a member of the Nazi Partyand her cousin and lover Jan Bronski, a Danzig Pole who is executed for defending the Polish Post Office in Danzig during the German invasion of Poland.

Indeed, the closer he gets to the exposed raw nerve, the more oblique Grass becomes.

I never read this novel before, of that I’m sure, and I only saw some trailers of the movie. Venus was worried that her son would never grow, but some wise god or other told her that Cupid would never grow until he himself found love. Maybe, although unlikely, we had to read this single chapter way back in school, and that I simply forgot about this fact, but I doubt it.

He wasn’t the English soldier who sees the horrors of war. Little Oskar grows up in a German household with relatives in both the Kaszub and Polish camps. War and War guilt I look for the land of the Poles that is lost to the Germans, for the moment at least. He heads up a local boys’ gang, and he is directly or indirectly responsible for the murders or deaths of nearly everyone close to him.


Stars Phil Daniels and Kenneth Cranham. Right at the I knew this book is good, but I had no idea it were that good. Although it’s not the same drum all the time, because continuously drumming such a thing wears it out after a couple of weeks, and the drum has to be replaced.

Ma, come accadrebbe a chiunque, nei giorni in cui un senso di colpa sgarbato e impossibile da scacciare mi abbatte sui guanciali del mio letto di manicomio, cerco di appigliarmi alla mia ignoranza, che allora venne di moda, e che ancora oggi molti si portano in giro. Not caring for the world he is growing up in, a small boy determines to remain a child. I don’t think concentration camps were mentioned for even once.

He models for painters often portrayed entirely in black with a increasingly larger hunchback while painters completely ignored his blue eyes comment on complete negative portrayal of Germany after war? June The Tin Drum 25 30 Aug 17, Hence you must take everything he says with a pinch, correction a bowl full of salt. Still there are enough differences, MC is more magic Onions and Potatos In the very first chapter, I was reminded of Midnight Children because of Oscar’s conversational tone of narrative – same as that of Saleem Shinai.

It is part vaudeville, part absurd, part insane and like nearly all great literature impossible to classify. Of course he didn’t have only friends in Germany and elsewherebut many adversaries as well.

The Tin Drum “. Machine translation like Deepl or Google Translate is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that gner translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia. No regard for what others think, no imparity in our straightforward vision, we arm ourselves with nothing but a tin-drum, the distilled pureness of life, a weapon against the mockery and scorn of adulthood, this sickness called youth.

He wasn’t the German soldier who feels sorry for what he did.

Disturbing because what is responded by laughter should be responded by tears. Danzig Oskar is born in and growing up or not growing up in a suburb of the city of Danzig. At times he seems to be trying to make it difficult for us to relate to him – this book can be a thousand things, but it is definitively not a melodrama.

In addition he always carries a toy with him and that’s finally the titular tin drum.

You would think an author of this caliber would produce something that has a sophisticated or should I say complicated? Boechtrommel stretched both arms out toward the drum. He refuses to speak, and communicates by banging on his titular drum.

His gang members call him “Jesus”, then he refers to himself as “Satan” later in the book. This story of a magical little man is the embodiment of the human experience. Sep 09, Beata rated it it was amazing.
