Ansichten Eines Clowns c1963 Opinions of a Clown The Clown Heinrich B llThe Clown is a 1963 novel by German writer Heinrich B ll Hans Schnier is the Clown of the novel s title He is twenty seven years old from a very wealthy family At the beginning of the story he arrives in Bonn Germany As a clown he had to travel across the country from city to city to perform as an artist He always sees himself an artist His home is in Bonn so he has to stay in hotels when he is not in Bonn The woman he has been living with Marie has left him to marry another man ZupfnerTherefore Hans has become depressed He wants to et Marie back from Zupfner and also has serious financial problems 2001 1349 316 20 from Zupfner and also has serious financial problems 2001 1349 316 20 297 1379 354 1393 312 04041399 What kind of a human being are you I am a clown and I collect moments I collect moments Hans is an exceptional human being He is completely subjective in every single action and emotion He refuses to accept standards and norms that are forced upon him by the establishment and he always follows his own heart and ethical values That spells trouble in the environment of corporate mentality where he Love in Catalina Cove (Catalina Cove grows up As a child he witnesses the collective thinking of his privileged family adapting wholeheartedly to Nazi Germany not necessarily out of fanaticism but out of opportunism He sees his own 16 year old sister leave forever in the last war effort and he never forgives his mother for encouraging her too to sacrifice herself for the blood and soil of Germany He won t allow his mother to forget her past later when she makes a political U turn and works on a post war political committee for racial integration He is terrified by the ease with which other former fanatic Nazis start careers in democratic institutions and he passionately reminds them of their hypocrisy When asked what a clown is and wherein his comical talent lies he replies that he shows people an abstract mirror of who they are The comical effect is based on the recognition of truth underneath the mask For his profession as a travelling clown his skill is reatly appreciated but in real life he fails brutally because he sees through the mask of corporate thinkingWhile the Nazi doctrine looms over his childhood his worst struggle is against empowered religion in post war Germany the all encompassing Catholic church which dictates social norms and behaviours Hans loses his partner a deeply religious and confused young woman because he can t fake honest belief and won t bow to the dictatorship of church and state to satisfy their moral dogma As he is reluctant to sign a paper promising that his future children will be raised in the Catholic faith Marie leaves him under the influence of a whole community of Catholic advisers both priests and laymen Hans broken hearted has to live with the feeling of having lost his true love to conventional corporate morality In his eyes Marie s marriage to a trustworthy Catholic man constitutes adultery and prostitution as she submits to a sexual relationship to satisfy not her own natural inclination but society s idea of correctness I found it fascinating to follow B ll s reflections on how easily ethical values can be turned into their opposite depending on how you perceive yourself as part of a corporation religious or political or as an individual person with a subjective inclination that doesn t recognise the boundaries that society sets according to objective rules traditions and standards For Hans there is nothing heroic in his sister s forced self sacrifice for the German Reich and there is nothing laudable in Marie s metaphysical fright and subseuent choice of a different partner He the ridiculous clown sees the ridiculous in collective thinking if that is not altogether an oxymoron as roups tend to act without thinking blindly following the voice of the crowdIn the end he is alone sad and poor for success is to be found in the Securing Caite groupthink of established power structures not in the individual search for freedom of thought and feeling He puts on his clown mask and shows society the empty features of its hideously cracked faceI didn t laugh at the Pierrot though I thought I finally understood my true profession And there is nothing worse Hans says than clowns that laugh at their own performance It is for the others to sit inroups and to laugh at the sad lonely clown ENGLISH The Clown ITALIANO It was dark by the time I reached Bonn and I forced myself not to succumb to the series of mechanical actions which had taken hold of me in five years of traveling back and forth down the station steps up the station steps put down my suitcase take my ticket out of my coat pocket pick up my suitcase hand in my ticket cross over to the newsstand buy the evening papers Trudy go outside and signal for a taxi Almost every day for five years I had left for somewhere and arrived somewhere in the morning I hadone up station steps and down again in the afternoon down the steps and up again signaled for a taxi felt in my pockets for money to pay for my ticket bought evening papers at kiosks and savored in a corner of my mind the studied casualness of these mechanical actions Ever since Marie left me to marry Z pfner that Catholic these actions have become mechanical tha.
