him in the apartment of Zürn's house, Anton Schweiger, a teacher of English and geography, and accommodated to be able to help: He should raise this matter with the appropriate Church committees and the transport, and he is also exactly the Right thing to do, because Anton is Sirte, the beauty of their dark eyes as her neck is forfeited because, irretrievably.
Where is Strange, to Holiness of life brings
What Martin Walser here, according to diary entries from the year 1961 to only 90 pages, and the generic "legend" that is known to old-timers Walser-readers in many respects: "the Girl or The canonization" is another book from the Zürn complex. In 1979, in the novel "soul work" first of all, the Chauffeur Xaver Zürn in the centre, then, from his first appearance in "The Swan house" (1980) about "The hunt" (1988) to "The moment of love" (2004), played the little successful real estate agent Gottlieb Zürn is the role of the main. A wife, two daughters and a teacher, as a sub-tenant were to be in the game.
Now, however, the occurrences are tips on the Paranormal, ranging from: Where Weird is supposed to be Holiness. And as Anton Schweiger, glowing with adoration for Sirte, when I-is the narrator, everything points to its divine Inspiration. Also, the girl herself is working finally active role in the canonization of the project. For its success you must work wonders. She teaches the Raven Chlodrian Speaking, is a good start. Much better but, that he, one Afternoon in the family circle, the chant, "Great God, we praise thee" brings to ear.
Although teachers Schweiger of the opinion that the real miracle was Sirte itself, it comes to him for his evidence in front of the Church Commission that in the next step, even a combination of martyrdom and a miracle to succeed. Of a woman whose trunk addict husband beats you every day, Sirte leads the racket is supplied. Now you can months beat up the drunkard with the name of Ludwig Proll the desire for the Drink and the Beat fades and he summons the girl in a letter: "to Listen to daily beat. Then I stop immediately to drink."
Ugly things go in this book, such as when father Zürn cow dung smeared in the face, or he raped his wife "often".
in fact, Chav stopped his drinking. Anton Schweiger: "I tried to explain to her gently that you have something to the effect of what should be a miracle to call. She shook her head. You don't want a miracle, you want a meaning for their existence." And to the "Postulator" of the Church's Commission: "Because of the miracle no doubt is possible, we can hope."
other strange, even ugly things go in this book, such as when father Zürn cow dung smeared in his face, he beats his wife suddenly, or they "frequently" raped. Momentarily funny, it is, however, when Doctors diagnose Sirtes States, and one speaks of a "schizophrenic psychosis", the dentist back everything to an incorrectly treated teeth and a "specialist" finally is: "No canonization. It is simply a Anorexia mentalis et nervosa."
page-by-page sense sayings
What has befallen the girl, certainly, know again, the reader: a aphorisms-Lust and Addiction, which impacted earlier in Walser's "Messmer"-volumes, but also more and more in the narrative books ends. Here are sayings fill in the form of Sirtes days book notaten side to side: "We, God and I are everything there is. The sky is the Meadow on which we graze. God and I are the world", and so on.
Before a decision on the question of canonization is like, ends the book. And actually, only one question remains open: Why neither the "Postulator" the competent Commission informed the applicants, that the Saint for canonization would have to be dead for a while. Since this is the search of meaning of Sirte is far from obvious, lack Walser's legend-rich, the teaching, the Work of God Reaffirming, the faithful uplifting at the end. "I'm a stain dries," is the girl's last entry. "I'm going to be." Not unlike all of we Unholy also.
