The Nobel Literature Prize Documentary 2009 [electronic resource]: Writing Against Terror-the Literature of Herta Muller

Nobel Media AB (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Her father was an ex-Nazi and alcoholic who clung to his fascist beliefs. For much of her life, she struggled against Nicolae Ceausescu's dehumanizing regime. But no matter how prolonged or alienating her hardships, they never crippled Herta Muller's spirit-and have, in fact, shaped and amplified her astonishing literary output. Commissioned by the Nobel Foundation, this program features revealing interviews with the 2009 Laureate, location footage from her domestic and working life, and readings from her achingly honest work. Excerpts illustrate the poetic resonance and intellectual power of Nadirs, The Land of the Green Plums, Traveling on One Leg, and other works.
