  • organizedsound If you're interested I'm German literature, I recommend Georg Buchner if you haven't read his work already. He's only 19th century, but the qualities of his writing really place him alongside many of the early modernists as well as 20th century avant-garde playwrights such as Ionesco. Incredibly ahead of his time in both content and style. I'd recommend his novella, Lenz, or any of his plays. Fantastic writer.

  • organizedsound I have to read an obscene amount of stuff for college, so getting around to the authors I'm interested in has been a slow process. That being said, my current favorites and recent interests include Proust(he alone is preventing me from reading everything else I want to), Flaubert, Chekhov, Anne Carson, Pirandello, Artaud, William Carlos Williams, some of the "language" poets such as Armantrout and Hejinian, etc

  • organizedsound Looks like I'll start with Invisible Cities. And most of the authors you listed after your description of Calvino are authors I've been meaning to read. I can't say I'm familiar with most of the Germans you listed. It seems that while we have similar dispositions to literature, you're far more experienced than I.

  • organizedsound It's also refreshing to see a sputniker who's into writers like Barthes and Calvino. I normally avoid sputnik-literature threads because of the typical Hemingway/Orwell/Vonnegut/Easton-Ellis monotony. What other literature are you interested in, generally?

  • organizedsound organizedsound Hey! Calvino's work has been recommended to me several times before, but I've unfortunately yet to read any. I picked up a copy of "If on a Winter's Night a Traveler," but it continues to sit on my shelf while I plow through other books. Would that be a good entryway into his work, or do you have any other recommendations?
