Bulwer-Lytton, Edward: Kenelm Chillingy. V2 [German] 22.12.2017

Der wenig bekannte, aber äußerst unterhaltsame, umfangreiche Roman eines der Lieblingsautoren von Arno Schmidt ist nun endlich in digitaler Form greifbar, und zwar in einer sehr brauchbaren zeitgenössischen Übersetzung.

Der Titelheld ist ein junger Mann, der strikt der Vernunft folgt und damit reichlich aneckt. Wäre es nicht so unwahrscheinlich, so müsste man annehmen, der Autor, der allerdings des Deutschen durchaus mächtig war und die deutsche Kultur schätzte, sei inspiriert worden durch die Lektüre von "Der Sonderling" von August Lafontaine, erschienen 1799, wo eine ähnliche Charakterdisposition zu allerlei humoresken Situationen führt.

Der Buchdeckel greift auf eine zeitgenössische Illustration zum Werk zurück.
