Was wir im Feuer verloren

Argentinien ist ein Land, das heute den viel beschworenen Untergang der Mittelschicht erlebt. Gewalt zieht in den Alltag ein. Traditionen verlieren ihre Gültigkeit und die Gegenwart wird zur Zumutung. Mariana Enríquez schreibt über den Zerfall der Familien, erzählt von Freunden, die sich im Alltag bekriegen, von Häusern, in denen es spukt und in denen Menschen verschwinden. Sie erzählt von Mädchen, die sich selbst verbrennen, von einem Mann, der sich in den dunklen Seiten des Internets verirrt hat und für die Welt verloren ist. Enríquez’ Stimme ist ruhig, gelassen — als sei dies alles ganz normal. Und so erzeugt die Autorin eine enorme Wirkung, entwirft das Zerrbild einer Gesellschaft kurz vor dem Kollaps, einer Demokratie am Abgrund. Mariana Enríquez steht in der Erzähltradition von Borges und Cortázar und doch sind ihre Erzählungen ganz gegenwärtig. Sie gehört zu den wichtigsten Stimmen der jungen lateinamerikanischen Literatur.

When students routinely use their handbook in the course, they see its value, find that it’s a faster way to get answers than search engines like Google, learn to rely on it as a reference, and are more likely to achieve the goals of the course. And when that handbook is Rules for Writers, you can be sure the advice they find is practical and reliable—with help for composing and revising, writing arguments, analyzing texts, using grammar and punctuation correctly, and working with sources. In revising the eighth edition, Nancy Sommers has woven a new emphasis on reading critically throughout the first section of the handbook, introduced advice for analyzing multimodal texts, and added help for public speaking. New practical Writing Guides support students working through college assignments in a variety of genres. And new peer review advice helps students effectively comment on drafts and apply feedback to revisions of their own work. All of these improvements help student writers—but they also save you time and effort. You can draw from Rules for Writers for planning class discussions, conducting in-class workshops, and providing feedback on student work that they can easily apply. Rules for Writers even comes with a complete instructor’s manual, Teaching with Hacker Handbooks, with stepped-out lesson plans to customize and sample assignments, syllabi, and rubrics from your peers.
