Download e-book for iPad: Mit nackten Gedichten kämpfen gegen den herrschenden by Ralf-Axel Simon

By Ralf-Axel Simon

ISBN-10: 3847274198

ISBN-13: 9783847274193

„Mit Gefühl und Härte“, der Herausgeber Cenk Bora über den Autor:
Gegen eine Justiz zu schreiben - die straft um zu rächen, statt Massnahmen zu ergreifen, um Verhalten zu verändern - das ist seine Lebensaufgabe.
" ist ein Michael Kohlhaas, einer, der den Schmerz nicht erträgt, die Welt in einer so ungeheuren Unordnung zu erblicken..." (Micha Sontheimer in "Die Zeit")
"...Jemand, der durch seine beharrliche politische Arbeit die Staatsgewalt zur wutschnaubenden Raserei provoziert, der zwei Jahre Knast überstanden und sich durch Schach geistig am Leben gehalten hat, verkörpert für mich einen Mythos, wie direkt aus Stefan Zweigs berühmter 'Schachnovelle' entsprungen...." (Burghard Schröder in seinem Rowohlt Taschenbuch "Unter Männern")
"...Uff ene artwork is det'n Held, ooch wenn er`n Spinner ist, weil der nich uffgibt, bei nüscht." (Benny Härlin zitiert in der "TAZ" einen seiner Bewachter)

Er erhielt wegen Beleidigung der Herrschenden 2 Jahre 6 Monate Einzelhaft (2 davon wegen Nichtaufstehens vor Gericht), used to be er in jungen Jahren als eine menschliche Auszeichnung begriff.

Ralf-Axel Simon -in seinem 60zigsten Lebensjahr - über sich selber:" Mit den Augen des Staates bin ich ein Terrorist - mit den Augen meiner Freunde ein Narr - umgekehrt wäre es mir manchmal lieber!"

Zeige mir deine Freunde und ich sage dir wer du bist:
Ralf-Axel Simon hat die 18 Monate Einzelhaft nicht alleine getragen - eingesperrt wird immer zwar ein einzelner Mensch aber auch seine Verwandten und seine Freunde - deshalb hat er jedes Gedicht einem anderen Menschen gewidmet und die Schnittmenge beschrieben.
Ralf-Axel Simon: „Wenn ich nachts durch die Gitter den Mond sah, wurde ich zwangsläufig an meine Freunde erinnert: auch sie waren manchmal nicht zu sehen, aber das Wissen, dass es sie gibt macht die Stahltüren, die Mauern , die Gitter erst erträglich!“

Die andere Seite einer Medaille: five Literaturpreise - sind eine genugtuende Kühlung seiner zum Teil schon vernarbten Wunden. “Der Tagesspiegel” schrieb:"...während Ralf-Axel Simons Gedichte in ihrer ironischen Kühle und poetischen Prägnanz sowohl an Gedichte Erich Frieds als auch an einen häufig in Ingeborg Drewitz`Erzählungen anzutreffenden Tenor erinnern."

Dieses zeitgeschichtliche Werk - fifty five Gedichte gegen den Knast, denen durch fifty five Geschichten der Stachel der Ohnmacht entzogen wird - liest sich wie eine Biographie mit altersphilosophischer Reflexion und soll zukünftig auch als Printversion auf dem Buchmarkt erscheinen. Es hat über two hundred Seiten.

kleine Leseprobe:



Dieses Gedicht widme ich
Stefan Aust . Er liess mir, als ich im Knast warfare, ausrichten, er wolle mit Menschen, die das "Wörterbuch des Unmenschen" benutzen, nichts zu tuen haben. ...Wieder entlassen konnte ich mich bei Stefan revanchieren:"mit Menschen, die ihre eigene Karriere mit dem Verfassungsschutz absprechen, habe ich wenig Mitgefühl!" ...

Ronald Fritzsch (2.Juni) . In Moabit angekommen, wurde ich gleich mit einem Zettel empfangen:"brauchst du was once? venceremos Ronny"...
... jeden Morgen, wenn er zur Arbeit gebracht wurde, kam er an meiner Zelle vorbei und klopfte an die panzerschrankähnliche Tür, fragte nach, wie es mir ginge, ob ich was once brauche, bevor er von den Schergen weitergescheucht wurde.

Hans Sonntag ... gelernter Bankrä warfare schon im Pensionsalter: Hans hatte in Berlin Kreuzberg eine financial institution überfallen und battle mit dem Fahrad der ganzen Bullenmaschinerie entkommen!
Leider bekommen manche geniale Menschen nie die ihnen zustehende Rente

I resolution definite to all 3 curious questions looking a mystery peek into the common dancer's sexuality.
