内容概况

Written in 1995 and turned into an Oscar-winning move in 2009, Bernhard Schlink’s The Reader is a controversial bestseller that presents a different perspective on the German effort to exterminate the Jews in the Second World War. It breaks the silence about the Holocaust by examining the issues of guilt and atonement through the story of a female Secret Service guard, (Hanna Schmidt) who is taken to trial for causing the deaths of some 300 Jews in a concentration camp. This story becomes complicated by the love affair between Hanna and Michael Berg, who is 21 years younger, especially his unwillingness to reveal the fact that Hanna is illiterate (and thus not guilty of the crime she is accused of). The lecture will focus on the historical background to the novel, the major themes and characters, as well as the symbolism used to present a sick and decadent Germany.
