Read full description of the books Correction:"Bernhard's prose is lapidary and translucent in its vocabulary, but sinuous and formidably dense in its phrasing. This prose enacts the essential motif of the novel: the notion that every 'correction' is also a negation . . . . The remarkable point is the extent to which the ascetic compactness of Bernhard's style turns these abstractions into a sensory presence . . . . [Bernhard's] connections, at once developmental and contrastive, with the great 'Austrian' constellation of Hofmannsthal, Kafka, Musil and Broch become ever clearer."—George Steiner, Times Literary Supplement
"Correction is something exceedingly rare among novels of recent years: a paradigm of consciousness and not simply a product . . . . Bernhard has said that 'the art we need is the art of bearing the unbearable,' and his novel joins that small group of literary works which nobly help us to do that."—Richard Gilman, The Nation
"It is high time that we keep Bernhard firmly in our mind, as European readers have been doing for many years now."—Peter Demetz, Christian Science Monitor
Read information about the authorThomas Bernhard was an Austrian author, who ranges among the most distinguished German speaking writers of the second half of the 20th century.
Although internationally he's most acclaimed because of his novels, he was also a prolific playwright. His characters were oftenly working in a lifetime and never-ending major work while they deal with themes such as suicide, madness and obsession and, as Bernhard did, they use to have a love-hate relation with Austria. His prose was tumultuous but sober at the same time, philosophic in the background, with a musical cadency and plenty of black humor.
He started publishing in the year 1963, with the title "Frost". His last published work, appeared in the year 1986, was "Extinction". Some of his most well known works include "The loser" (where he ficitionalizes about Glenn Gould), "Correction" and "Woodcutters".
