      Muhammad Ali (* 17. Januar 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky als Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.) ist ein ehemaliger US-amerikanischer Boxer. Er gehört zu den bedeutendsten Schwergewichtsboxern und herausragendsten Athleten des 20. Jahrhunderts und wurde 1999 vom Internationalen Olympischen Komitee zum Sportler des Jahrhunderts gewählt.[1]Auch außerhalb des Boxrings sorgte Ali für Schlagzeilen. So lehnte er öffentlich den Vietnamkrieg ab, verweigerte den Wehrdienst und unterstützte die Emanzipationsbewegung der Afroamerikaner in den 1960er Jahren. Der Kampf Rumble in the Jungle gegen George Foreman und die Kämpfe Fight of the Century und Thrilla in Manila gegen Joe Frazier gelten als Klassiker unter den Schwergewichtskämpfen.InhaltsverzeichnisKindheit und erster Kontakt mit dem BoxsportClay wurde 1942 als erster von zwei Söhnen eines Schildermalers geboren und wuchs in ärmlichen Verhältnissen auf. Seine Eltern benannten ihren Sohn nach dem Politiker und Gegner der Sklaverei Cassius Marcellus Clay. Mit dem Boxtraining begann der zwölfjährige Clay 1954 aus Wut über den Diebstahl seines Fahrrades er hoffte, den Dieb dadurch bestrafen zu können, wenn er ihn erwischte.[1] Im Alter von 16 Jahren verließ Clay die Schule mit schlechten Noten und konzentrierte sich auf sein Boxtraining. Karriere KarrierebeginnInnerhalb weniger Jahre konnte Clay sämtliche nationalen Amateurtitel erringen. Bei den Olympischen Spielen 1960 gewann er in Rom die olympische Goldmedaille im Halbschwergewicht. Noch im selben Jahr wurde er Profi.Clay musste feststellen, dass ein Wrestler namens Gorgeous George für größeres Aufsehen bei Presse und Zuschauern sorgte als ein bescheiden auftretender Nachwuchsboxer wie er. Daraufhin begann er, den Stil von George zu kopieren und der Presse von nun an immer neues Material in Form von Spottreimen über seine Gegner zu liefern: Vorhersagen über die Runde seines K.-o.-Sieges (Archie Moore will be on the floor in round four, Archie Moore wird in der vierten Runde am Boden liegen) und ähnliche Äußerungen.[2] Mit diesem provozierend zur Schau getragenen Selbstbewusstsein wurde Clay bald berühmt. Weil seine Prophezeiungen über den Ausgang oft zutrafen und Gegner tatsächlich in den vorhergesagten Runden zu Boden gingen, wurde er eine Zeitlang sogar des Betrugs verdächtigt. Aufstieg und erste Weltmeisterschaft (1964) &#8594 Hauptartikel: Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny ListonIm Februar des Jahres 1964 bekam Clay einen Weltmeisterschaftskampf gegen Sonny Liston, nachdem er zuvor Doug Jones umstritten nach Punkten und Henry Cooper durch K. o. besiegt hatte. Viele Journalisten mochten Clays selbstsichere Art nicht und prophezeiten ihm eine Niederlage gegen Liston, so auch Arthur Daley von der New York Times: The irritatingly confident Cassius enters this bout with one trifling handicap. He cant fight as well as he can talk. (Der irritierend selbstbewusste Cassius bestreitet diesen Titelkampf mit einem unbedeutenden Nachteil. Er kann nicht so gut kämpfen, wie er reden kann.).[3]Trotzdem gewann der mit Sieben zu Eins als Außenseiter gesetzte Clay durch eine angeblich verletzungsbedingte Aufgabe seines Gegners nach der sechsten Runde. In tumultartigen Szenen brüllte Clay nach dem Sieg immer wieder I shook up the world! und I am the greatest! in die Mikrofone. Die Bilder von ihm mit weit aufgerissenem Mund und Augen gingen um die Welt.Im weiteren Verlauf des Jahres machte Clay seine Mitgliedschaft in der Nation of Islam öffentlich und wählte Muhammad Ali als Namen. 1975 konvertierte er zum sunnitischen Islam.[4] Der Rückkampf gegen ListonIm Rückkampf am 25. Mai 1965 in Lewiston, Maine, wurde Liston von Ali bereits in der 1. Runde nach nur 105 Sekunden Kampf vom so genannten Phantomschlag (Phantom Punch, auch als Anchor Punch bekannt geworden) niedergestreckt, einem kurzen, harten, rechten Cross an Schläfe oder Kiefer,[5] der weder von Liston noch von großen Teilen des Publikums gesehen worden war. Ali schrie daraufhin den am Boden liegenden Liston mit den Worten Get up, you bum! (Komm hoch, du Penner!) wutentbrannt an und der Ringrichter, der ehemalige Weltmeister Jersey Joe Walcott, der mit der Situation offensichtlich überfordert war, zählte zunächst weder an noch aus, da er den wütend bei Liston stehenden und schreienden Ali von diesem wegzudrängen suchte. Der Kampf wurde dann zunächst wieder freigegeben, unmittelbar darauf jedoch beendet, als Nat Fleischer, der Gründer des Ring Magazines, Walcott darauf hinwies, dass Liston schon deutlich mehr als 10 Sekunden am Boden gewesen war.Der nur von wenigen Zuschauern gesehene Phantom Punch gab im Verbund mit Listons scheinbarer Unbesiegbarkeit und dessen dubiosen Kontakten zur Mafia Anlass zu Spekulationen über einen möglichen Betrug, was andererseits wegen der offensichtlichen Feindschaft zwischen den beiden Boxern bezweifelt wurde. So hatte Liston vor dem ersten Kampf, auf die Provokationen Clays angesprochen, erklärt, dass er die Absicht habe, Clay umzubringen. Auch in seiner Autobiografie wandte sich Ali gegen jegliche Unterstellungen solcher Art und erklärte explizit:Tatsache ist, dass noch niemals ein Kampf weniger abgesprochen war als dieser.Muhammad Ali: Der Größte. Meine Geschichte. S. 123.Film- und Fotoaufnahmen bewiesen im Nachhinein eindeutig, dass Liston von Ali tatsächlich getroffen wurde. Unklar blieb allerdings, wie hart. Deutlich zu sehen ist die entspannte Muskulatur von Listons Körper während des Sturzes, die eine Bewusstlosigkeit zu diesem Zeitpunkt vermuten lässt. Liston erklärte später allerdings, dass er vom Schlag Alis zwar überrascht, jedoch nicht bewusstlos war und nur deshalb nicht sofort wieder aufstand, da er fürchtete, von dem direkt über ihm (anstatt in der neutralen Ecke) stehenden Ali erneut getroffen zu werden. Auch hätte er vergeblich auf das Anzählen durch den Referee gewartet.In dem Augenblick, als Ali wütend und schreiend über dem liegenden Liston steht, entstand eines der bekanntesten Fotos von Ali, geschossen von Neil Leifer.[6] Dieses Foto (eigentlich ein Farbbild, aber als Schwarzweißbild berühmt geworden), nannte sein Biograph David Remnick später Ali wild und schön (), vielleicht () das nachhaltigste Bild Alis im Kampf überhaupt.[5] Karrierehöhepunkt und Titelverlust (1967) Muhammad Ali 1967Mitte der 60er Jahre war Ali auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere. Er traf die Beatles und Elvis Presley und verteidigte seinen Titel unter anderem gegen Ex-Weltmeister Floyd Patterson und dann im Frankfurter Waldstadion gegen den deutschen Europameister Karl Mildenberger (Mildenberger machte ihm einige Probleme er kam bis in die 12. Runde, woraufhin Ali im Anschluss sagte, nie wieder gegen Mildenberger boxen zu wollen), ferner gegen George Chuvalo, Henry Cooper, Brian London, Cleveland Williams, Ernie Terrell und Zora Folley.Ali war äußerst flink, dazu provozierte er oft den Gegner, indem er die Hände neben den Hüften hängen ließ, anstatt sich zu decken. Seine Beine waren jedoch so schnell und die Hüfte so beweglich, dass er fast jeden Schlag auspendeln konnte. Tatsächlich bekam er kaum Treffer an den Kopf, kokettierte mit seinem Aussehen und prahlte, dass er nach vielen Kämpfen immer noch so hübsch wie ein Mädchen sei. Mit einer rasanten tänzerischen Beinkombination namens Ali Shuffle verblüffte er Gegner und Publikum. Gelegentlich ließ er sich demonstrativ mehrmals hintereinander in die durchtrainierte Seite des Körpers schlagen, ohne dass dies erkennbare Wirkungen zeigte abgesehen davon, dass der Gegner demoralisiert wurde.[3]Im April 1967 wurde Ali der Titel aberkannt, nachdem er sich geweigert hatte, den Wehrdienst anzutreten. Als ausschlaggebend für seine Entscheidung nannte er zum einen seinen Glauben, sprach aber zum anderen auch die Frage der fehlenden Gleichberechtigung der Afroamerikaner an ...

        Handschriftlicher Briefwechsel mit Ferdinand Wessiak. 29 Briefe, 15 Karten, 1 Erzählung betitelt "Die Maus" 2 Wunschkarten mit 1 Holzschnitt und 1 Reproduktion, 1 Karte von Eva Kobinger.

      Briefkorrespondenz meist gelocht. Der umfangreiche Briefwechsel mit Ferdinand Wessiak stammt hauptsächlich aus der Zeit 1942 - 1947 und ist insofern interessant, da es um die in Berlin lagernden Bilder geht, sowie die Alltagsprobleme die durch den Krieg verursacht wurden. Hans Kobinger 1892 - 1974 zählt zu den Künstlern Oberösterreichs rund um die Künstlergruppe 'März' zu der auch Vilma Eckl, Alfred Kubin, Klemens Brosch u. a. gehörten. Seine Arbeiten, ganz der Heimat verschrieben, erzielen durchaus beachtliche Preise auf dem internationalen Kunstmarkt. Ferdinand Wessiak lebte in der Kriegszeit in Berlin, später dann in Großgmain bei Salzburg. Er war der Vertraute von Johannes Ude, der im Widerstand zu NS-Regime stand und im KZ gefoltert wurde, zuletzt rettete ihn der Einmarsch der Alliierten. Der Briefwechsel gibt ein anschauliches Bild auch des geistigen Widerstandes und der Freundschaft.

        Aminadab : Jeu complet d'épreuves abondamment corrigées par l'auteur

      S.n. 1942 - - S.n., s.l. s.d (1942), 18,5x41cm, en feuilles. - Epreuves complètes de Aminadab comportant de nombreuses corrections manuscrites et un passage supprimé. Petites déchirures sans manques sur certains feuillets et quelques pages cornées, dernier feuillet déchiré en deux morceaux, mais complet. Document unique témoignant des corrections et modifications de Maurice Blanchot avant la publication de ce second roman considéré comme fondateur de son écriture à venir. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First new version of the autograph manuscript of 17 pages, written in 1935. Manuscript writing very dense, full excluding the last 13 lines of printed text, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Complete typescript with a few variations from the manuscript and a copy of the first edition published in 1947 and finally published in 1950 is attached. In 1935, Blanchot has been working for 3 years on Thomas the Obscure (he completed in 1940) when interrupts his writing "that would not stop" to write the last word, a short story he describes as "an attempt to bypass another book underway to overcome the interminable and get a more linear narrative, yet painfully complex, a silent decision . ". In 1983, Blanchot, referring to the motivations of this "innocent text where murderers omens of future time resounded," can not say "how it is written and how unknown requirement, it has the answer." "It was not a text for publication," he says in the afterword of hindsight. The last word will indeed published 12 years later in 550 copies in the collection golden age (although it went bankrupt at the same time, the book will be on sale in 1950) . So the first story is meant at once the last word and the refusal of its unveiling. "Surely begin to write immediately to achieve at the end (.), this means at least hope not to make a career and finding the shortest path to finish early." In this "Apocalypse" Blanchot leads his own novel being written: Thomas, the hero, and is ironically called the new power otherwise without express "what happened to him [that] saying nothing happened ". But if, starting with the last word, Blanchot marks the end of writing, it is an end that remains unpublished. And when the book is finally published, it will be more of a work already substantial: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadab, Faux pas, the Most High, Death Sentence and The Share of fire. Therefore, the last word is not "waiver be Master and Judge," but a written waiver of this "itself in vain." It can no longer be "the unusual resolution to deprive [Language] to support (.) that is to say more than language" but, as part of the work, there is a "word to say and do not say. ". A word rewritten by the writer he became transformed by writing and by war. This is the inaugural version, first draft of thirty young Blanchot, we present here and C. Bident his biographer, thought "probably never know." Narrative foundation, basic writing, many scholars have studied the last man, "painfully complicated" as even the author, but who calls a few "prophetic" pages a reflection on language (and, through him, totalitarianism) marking the second part of the century. Now we present the manuscript written in 1935 and until then unknown, differs considerably from the following two versions of 1947 and 1983. Written in the third person (the later will they, homodiégétiques) the story is much longer. It contains descriptions and including many deleted scenes that will be removed in the published versions: "The sun bathed [plaza] a fiery light of huge mirrors, placed at the four corners, be kicked around in a maze of colors . " A cloud was soon raised to the ceiling, black cloud crossed by small glowing patches. " I am worried, he said. I was wrong to leave earlier this house when I get home, surrounded by torches are extinguished one by one. What will I find now? How to live without I guideline? Can you tell me anything? " Some children, head blackened coal, removed the sand in w [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        THE BRASHER DOUBLOON filmed as TIME TO KILL. The Final Shooting Script. Based on the novel The High Window By Raymond Chandler.

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox. 1942 - The Final Shooting Script for the film Time To Kill, based on Raymond Chandler’s novel The High Window. Blue card covers stamped in purple with the title "The Brasher Doubloon" with the date "AUG. 12, 1942" and "Final" to the top right corner. There are a couple of ink hand annotations in black "Released as "Time To Kill"" and a number code. Also present is the faint ink stamp "Received New York Legal Dept. Nov 27 1942". The script appears to be numbered 35 by way of an ink stamp to the cover and the inside Stenographic Dept loan page. The script is 106 pages including the title page. There are 6 blue revision pages, page 45 dated 8/14/42; page 46 dated 8/22/42; page 84 dated 8/14/42; pages 98, 98A, 103 all dated 8/20/42.

A rare final script for the second of Raymond Chandler’s novels to hit the big screen. The Herbert I. Leeds directed film was released on 22 January 1943 staring Lloyd Nolan, Heather Angel and Doris Merrick. The character of Philip Marlowe was replaced with Michael Shayne (this was to be the last of seven Shayne mysteries produced by Fox with Lloyd Nolan as the lead). Whilst the film was remade 5 years later as "The Brasher Doubloon" reinstating Philip Marlowe, the plot of "Time To Kill" was much more faithful to that of Raymond Chandler’s book.

        Commemorative photo album

      1942 - (STEINMETZ, Charles Proteus) STEINMETZ MEMORIAL FOUNDATION. Commemorative photo album presented to Comfort A. Adams who delivered the Fifteenth Steinmetz Memorial Lecture. [Schenectady, New York: Steinmetz Memorial Foundation, 1942]. Quarto, brad-bound as issued, original full brown sheep gilt, watered silk endpapers. $4200.Commemorative album created in honor of acclaimed scientist Charles Steinmetz by the Steinmetz Memorial Foundation, with 41 full-page second-generation gelatin silver prints including portraits of Steinmetz, images of Steinmetz with Edison and Einstein, and scenes from Steinmetz's life, presented to electrical engineer Comfort A. Adams who delivered the 15th Steinmetz Memorial Lecture "Cooperation Versus War" in 1942.This commemorative album was produced by the Steinmetz Memorial Foundation and contains 41 full-page images from the life of Charles Steinmetz. Steinmetz, a German Jew, was born with dwarfism, hip dysplasia, and was also a hunchback. Though these challenges would have proves life-limiting""if not life-ending""for many born in the middle of the 19th century, Steinmetz instead excelled. He became known for his aptitude in math and physics, his own knowledge exceeding that of his teachers. However, by the time he was in university, his involvement in socialist causes had come to the attention of the authorities and his academic prowess proved to be no protection. Steinmetz fled to Zurich and then to America. Steinmetz's work in America proved groundbreaking, especially in electrical engineering. GE, through buying a company that he worked for, took full advantage of his accomplishments. Steinmetz himself eventually secured over 200 patents. His work brought him into contact with other scientific luminaries including Albert Einstein and, on several occasions, with Thomas Edison. Indeed, pictures of Steinmetz with both Einstein and Edison are featured in this album. By 1922 (a year prior to his death), Steinmetz gave up on socialism, at least as part of America's future, a decision that probably saved his legacy. "Steinmetz must be regarded as one of the fathers of electrical engineering, and his work symbolizes the fruitful interaction between mathematics, science, and practical engineering. He made outstanding contributions to the field, and his influence was transmitted not only by his discoveries and inventions, but also by his writings. Much of the methodology of modern circuit theory was developed and became widely known through his textbooks. His successful experience with GE encouraged other companies to become involved in basic research, which was a new departure in American industrial thinking. Finally, his was a true "˜rags to riches' story that has been an inspiration to immigrants, to those affected with a physical disability, and to those whom society would dismiss as "˜non-conformists"(ANB). This book was presented to American electrical engineer Comfort A. Adams, who made great contributions in areas including the steel industry and commercial welding. "Adams was much recognized during his career. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences. He delivered the inaugural Adams Lecture for the American Welding Society and received its Samuel Wylie Miller Medal. In 1944 he received the American Institute of Electrical Engineer's Lamme Medal both for his work in the theory and design of alternating-current machinery and for his work in welding. Perhaps his most prestigious award was the Edison Medal in 1956 for "˜pioneering achievements in the development of alternating current electric machines and in electrical welding; for vision and initiative in the formation of an engineering standards organization and for eminence as an educator and consulting engineer" (ANB). With The Story of Steinmetz, a GE promotional booklet that shares many of the images from this album, laid in.Interior fine, a bit of light restoration to binding. Extremely good condition.

It begins with the great westward trek under the leadership of Brigham Young and goes forward as the chronicle of tireless and superhuman achievements by a people of faith. The myths and legends of the Mormons, their folkways and great leaders, are relatively unknown to many Americans. But theirs is a colorful saga, and it is the saga of a people who built by group effort a region entirely different from the rest of the West in its institutions and habits of living.

        The Good Earth Original Lithograph by John Steuart Curry signed in Pencil

      Associated American Artists, New York 1942 - This is an original pencil signed lithograph on paper w/ a 12-3/4" x 10-1/8 " image in a 19" x 15" frame, Signed in pencil LR. It has not been removed from its frame to check condition or sheet size but appears to be in good condition w/ no apparent flaws (sheet size should be 16-3/4" x 12-5/8"). John Steuart Curry (1897-1946) was one of the three members of the great Regionalist Triumvirate of the early 20th Century (along with Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton). He was also an artist member of Prairie Print Makers. "Our Good Earth" exists in several forms. A finished oil painting used as the basis for an equally famous photo-mechanical color lithographic war poster, produced by the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) in both large and small versions w/ copies posted nationwide in 1942. The image was used again as a cover illustration for a GPO informational booklet directed to farmers. And finally, it was produced as a fine art lithograph on stone published in 1942 in an edition of 250 by Associated American Artists, New York. Many critics believe the lithograph is the most evocative of the three forms. The aim of the project was to inspire leading American artists to create pictures that would encourage popular support for the nation¿s war effort. Curry¿s response was simple yet powerful, an image that transcends its original motivation as illustration and propaganda. In particular, a representation of the contemporary yeoman farmer descended from those who founded and developed this country; his placement in a field of waving wheat surrounded by his children presents the Midwest as an energetic, fertile land, inhabited by heroic people of unlimited potential Curry was not adverse to co-opting and transposing European examples and some believe Michelangelo¿s David was the likely source for Curry¿s heroic farmer who, instead of holding a sling, is seen clutching three stems of wheat.

        Fort Hood Photo Archive

      1942 - (WORLD WAR II). Photographic archive of Fort Hood Opening Day. Killeen, Texas: U.S. Army Signal Corps, 1942. Oblong folio (11 by 14 inches), 90 leaves of cardstock, each with gelatin silver black-and-white or sepia-toned photographic print on glossy paper stock affixed (88 measuring 8 by 10 inches, 2 measuring 4 by 6 inches), ring-bound; 12 additional photographic prints (9 on glossy paper stock, 3 on matte; each measuring 8 by 10 inches) laid in loose. Housed in custom half morocco clamshell box. $4500.Vintage archive of 102 black-and-white and sepia-tinted photographic prints (90 mounted on thick card stock, another dozen loose) documenting the September 1942 opening ceremonies of the United States Army's groundbreaking tank destroyer training center at Camp Hood, with numerous intriguing views of anti-tank artillery, troop exercises and Army officials and important visitors from Washington, D.C. and Hollywood. A unique, visual primary source of American military history.In 1942, while World War II raged, the United States Army developed 108,000 acres of central Texas farm land into Camp Hood, later Fort Hood. The new base became home to a tank destroyer tactical and firing center and some 38,000 troops (a figure that would swell to almost 95,000 in less than a year). The Army designed Camp Hood to house its newly created Tank Destroyer battalions: mobile anti-tank guns on armored half-tracks to combat Nazi Germany's Panzers, which had overrun so much of Europe. Generals Andrew D. Bruce and Lesley J. McNair (both pictured in several of the photographs in this album) organized the units, quickly training "scores of officers and men," as the New York Times reported, "in the tough business of 'tank busting'". The mission of the tank destroyer is best epitomized by the motto the new battalions have adopted, 'Seek, attack, destroy!'" This remarkable archive of vintage photographs documents the ceremonies marking the base's opening day, September 18, 1942. Highlights include the presentation of colors and the review of troops; inspections of such equipment as .30 caliber machine guns, the 37 mm tank gun towed by a Jeep, 75 mm guns mounted on the M3 GMC and M10 GMC half-tracks, and M2A4 Light Tanks; practical demonstrations of the quarter-ton reconnaissance car, Molotov cocktails and "Sticky Bomb" grenades (the latter improvised from dynamite, nitroglycerin and GI socks), trench warfare and unarmed combat; mock Nazi villages and simulated Japanese formations that served to simulate tank hunting under actual combat conditions; the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps detachment; Fort Hood's military personnel as well as visiting officers and government dignitaries; and several photographs of Hollywood starlets and popular pin-up subjects Anne Gwynne, Martha O'Driscoll and Joan Blondell, as well as Miss America 1942, Jo-Carroll Dennison (shown playing with the 899th Tank Destroyer battalion's puppy mascots, visiting with Will Rogers, Jr., and firing a Tommy Gun). Neat manuscript ink annotations and ruling to leaf margins. Some photographs with previous, unobtrusive hole-punches at edges.Occasional closed tears to leaves, not affecting mounted photographs. Light curling to loose photographs. A unique and engrossing archive of vintage photographs, depicting a significant development in America's military might.

        Aminadab : Jeu complet d'épreuves abondamment corrigées par l'auteur.

      1942. S.n., s.l. s.d (1942), 18,5x41cm. - S.n., s.l. s.d (1942), 18,5x41cm. - Primo nuova versione del manoscritto autografo di 17 pagine, scritto nel 1935. Manoscritto di scrittura molto denso, pieno esclusi gli ultimi 13 righe di testo stampato, con molte cancellature, correzioni e aggiunte. Dattiloscritto completo con alcune variazioni rispetto al manoscritto e una copia della edizione originale pubblicato nel 1947 e, infine, pubblicato nel 1950 è allegato. Nel 1935, Blanchot ha lavorato per tre anni a Thomas the Obscure (ha completato nel 1940), quando interrompe la sua scrittura "che non stop" per scrivere l'ultima parola, un racconto che descrive come "un tentativo di aggirare un altro libro in corso per superare la interminabile e ottenere una narrazione più lineare, ma dolorosamente complesso, una decisione in silenzio ... ". Nel 1983 Blanchot riferendosi alle motivazioni di questo "testo innocente dove gli assassini presagi di tempo risuonavano futuro", può non dire "come è scritto e come sconosciuti requisito, esso ha la risposta." "Non è stato un testo per la pubblicazione," dice nella postfazione del senno di poi. L'ultima parola sarà infatti pubblicato 12 anni dopo in 550 esemplari della collezione età d'oro (anche se andò in bancarotta, allo stesso tempo, il libro sarà in vendita nel 1950) . Così la prima storia si intende subito l'ultima parola e il rifiuto della sua inaugurazione. "Sicuramente iniziare a scrivere immediatamente per raggiungere alla fine (...), questo significa almeno spero di non fare carriera e trovare il percorso più breve per finire presto." In questa "Apocalypse" Blanchot porta il suo romanzo essendo scritto: Thomas, l'eroe, ed è ironicamente chiamato il nuovo potere in altro modo senza espressa "cosa è successo a lui [che] dicendo: non è successo niente ". Ma se, iniziando con l'ultima parola, Blanchot segna la fine della scrittura, è un fine che rimane inedito. E quando il libro viene finalmente pubblicato, sarà più di un lavoro già notevole: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadàb, gaffe, l'Altissimo, Death Sentence e la quota del fuoco. Pertanto, l'ultima parola non è "rinuncia sia Maestro e Giudice", ma una rinuncia scritta di questa "si invano." Non può più essere "la risoluzione insolita per privare [Lingua] per sostenere (...), vale a dire più di linguaggio", ma, come parte del lavoro, c'è una "parola da dire e non dire. ". Una parola riscritto dallo scrittore divenne trasformata dalla scrittura e dalla guerra. Questa è la versione inaugurale, prima bozza di trenta giovane Blanchot, vi presentiamo qui e C. Bident suo biografo, pensiero "Probabilmente non sapremo mai." Fondazione narrativa, la scrittura di base, molti studiosi hanno studiato l'ultimo uomo ", dolorosamente complicato", come anche l'autore, ma che chiama un paio di pagine "profetici", una riflessione sul linguaggio (e, attraverso di lui, totalitarismo), che segna la seconda parte del secolo. Ora vi presentiamo il manoscritto nel 1935 e fino ad allora sconosciute, differisce notevolmente dalle seguenti due versioni del 1947 e del 1983. Scritte in terza persona (il più tardi saranno loro, homodiégétiques) la storia è molto più lungo. Esso contiene le descrizioni e le cui molte scene tagliate, che verranno rimossi nelle versioni pubblicate: "Il sole bagnata [piazza] una luce di fuoco di grandi specchi, posti ai quattro angoli, essere preso a calci in un labirinto di colori . "" Una nube fu presto elevato al soffitto, nube nera attraversata da piccole chiazze incandescente. "" Sono preoccupato, ha detto. Ho sbagliato lasciare prima questa casa quando torno a casa, circondata da fiaccole sono spente ad una ad una. Cosa trovo adesso? Come vivere senza di I linea guida? Puoi dirmi qualcosa? "" Alcuni bambini, testa annerito carbone, rimosso la sabbia in cui sono stati sepolti, e cercando di raggiungere con piccole pietre bianche che traevano dalla tasca, insultarono nella loro lingua incomprensibile. "" Approfittando della tregua, i cani dal loro buco, come se fossero stati segretamente eccitato da un maestro, si precipitarono alla dormiente tirando loro link. Hanno cercato di destra, sinistra, poi scoprendo sotto le coperte, sono scivolato malamente, prima in piccolo, poi il grosso cane, come un gruppo vizioso di bambini. "" L'ebbrezza di stare insieme avendo perso più giovane li ha spinti nella propria casa come se avesse cessato di essere loro, e si gettò grida di veglia gli intrusi dalle loro case. "Ma questo manoscritto offre l'esegeta soprattutto dimostrative alcuni passaggi che forniscono chiarimenti sul significato della storia:" Fino a quando non è un modo indifferente per il passato e il futuro. Se si intende estendere un velo su quale approccio, se un collegamento tra, da repulsione reciproca, momenti di tempo separato risulta da qualcosa, qualcosa d'altro non è mostrato, tuttavia, che tale limite. "" Hanno cui nulla è stato proibito di parlare e che conosceva, si comportava come se la loro conoscenza fosse stato a rompere con la lingua. "" Il discepolo su questa ammissione, l'adorazione raddoppiata, si danno colpi che li trasformano in quello che può essere. In un primo momento l'inganno comune, correvano, uno da un mondo animale, l'altra ad un se stesso ribattuta uno schiavo. "" Volevano a ridere senza senso, sta torturando una bugia, ma, non avendo altra via di presentarsi come l'apoteosi, hanno perso di vista il loro reciproco desiderio di morte e beatamente apprezzato l' riposare. "Una chiave di lettura di questi cambiamenti addizione preziose che riflettono cambiamenti reali dell'autore. Se la più importante è, naturalmente, la scelta della prima persona nelle versioni successive, alcune varianti lessicali sono anche molto significativo. Così: «Offro lo spettacolo dei miei vizi" nel manoscritto e dattiloscritto 1935 diventa: "Offro lo spettacolo dei miei errori" nella versione pubblicata della stessa nel 1947 "Questo è un estratto dal discorso. la terza città "diventa" Questo è un estratto del discorso sul terzo allo Stato terzo "; "Un rumore (...) è stato un colpo tutta la città" diventa "è stato un colpo tutte le persone" e "... su un ponte di onomatopea" diventa "... un farneticante gateway." Infine, si tratta di una Blanchot lirica che rivela questa "improvvisa chiamata del linguaggio": "Aveva i capelli appendere queste ampie ali di velluto sono una promessa di trasformazione." "... Quando il sole getta la sua luce splende contro gli specchi ovunque, si fermò sopra la spianata e udì questa voce, privato misteriosamente le vocali e le consonanti, che annuncia la condivisione degli spazi" "Esclamazioni di: la folla è venuto e ha portato chiede un disagio immenso. "" Ha funzionato sul libro e morse i denti, come se avesse fatto insensibile, nonostante l'amarezza di quelle vecchie pagine. ". Col senno di poi Blanchot esitate a commentare, tuttavia, che questo testo prevede la terza volta e si prese cura di rivedere ancora una volta, a 50 anni dalla sua prima release. Tuttavia, porta alcuni pezzi di spiegazioni che rivelano l'importanza di questa piccola storia nella vita e l'opera di uno dei più misteriosi scrittori del ventesimo secolo: "L'ultima parola deve raccontare linea principale, come aventi invece, il naufragio totale, la narrazione in sé non può quindi essere conservato, e impossibile o assurdo, a meno che non dovrebbe pretendere profetico, annunciando un futuro in passato già lì o dicendo che ci sempre quando non c'è niente: o non portare nulla ed evitare l'annientamento che non può sfuggire al suo processo a lungo termine che viene rimasticare e l'eternità.
