Download Roter Mohn: Roman (Unionsverlag Taschenbücher) (German by Alai,Karin Hasselblatt PDF

By Alai,Karin Hasselblatt

Jeder weiß, dass der zweite Sohn des Fürsten Maichi ein fool ist. Als Thronfolger wird er nie zum Zug kommen. Umso unvoreingenommener beobachtet er seine Umgebung: die Festung des Fürsten im äußersten Osten Tibets, die in kleinliche Streitereien verwickelten Lamas, die Intrigen um schöne Frauen, die Fehden mit benachbarten Herrschern und die wechselnden Allianzen mit den Chinesen. In das entlegene Hochland dringt die Moderne lediglich als fernes Echo. Einzig der fool erkennt, dass sich das Ende einer Ära abzeichnet.

Zunächst von vielen chinesischen Verlagen wegen der heiklen politischen Thematik abgelehnt, wurde Roter Mohn ein Bestseller und 2000 mit dem wichtigsten chinesischen Literaturpreis, dem Mao-Dun-Preis, ausgezeichnet.
