Der Verdacht – Friedrich Dürrenmatt by Ivan Schoch on Prezi
At the time he was also working on a play and living in rather cramped conditions with his small family in the house of his mother-in-law on the lake in Biel. Some of it was written in the hospital cerdacht Berne, where friedgich of the action takes place. Hungertobel, is drrenmqtt a friend and as they sit together chatting one day, the doctor thinks that he recognises an old classmate of his in a picture of a Nazi camp doctor known for his terrible atrocities.
He quickly repudiates that idea, however, as his dfrenmatt spent the war years in Chile and even published articles in medical journals during that time. He persuades the reluctant Hungertobel to move him to convalesce in the sanatorium for wealthy people opened by the doctor he suspects of Nazi war crimes.
This is when the story becomes much less of a straightforward investigation and takes on certain nightmarish, almost surreal qualities. We have far fewer descriptions of landscapes and houses: Dialogues drive the plot and some of them even turn into serial monologues as first one character and then another spells out their view of the world, their beliefs and values or lack thereof.
As one of the protagonists says:. With just a few deft strokes and excellent use of dialogue and humour, the author sketches some unforgettable character portraits: Hungertobel, who wants to believe the best of every one he encounters.
The law is the law. When we say law, we mean power; and when we say power, we think of riches…. As the world descended into the newly rigid battle trenches of the Cold War chaos, suspicion becomes a way of life. But how can humanity survive on nihilism alone? So, not deer conventional crime novel as such, but posing many moral dilemmas instead.
