[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 1983

Zitat unkommentiert

Books are not only the arbitrary sum of our dreams, and our memory. They also give us the model of self-transcendence. Some people think of reading only as a kind of escape: an escape from the “real” everyday world to an imaginary world, the world of books. Books are much more. They are a way of being fully human. I’m sorry to have to tell you that books are now considered an endangered species. By books, I also mean the conditions of reading that make possible literature and its soul effects. Soon, we are told, we will call up on “bookscreens” any “text” on demand, and will be able to change its appearance, ask questions of it, “interact” with it. When books become “texts” that we “interact” with according to criteria of utility, the written word will have become simply another aspect of our advertising-driven televisual reality. This is the glorious future being created, and promised to us, as something more “democratic.” Of course, it means nothing less than the death of inwardness — and of the book.” Susan Sontag

Literature is a tone. It is a melody. If I find the melody of the book, the book is written. I remember The Town Beyond the Wall: I wrote one page—I remember exactly what time it was—I wrote one page and I knew the book was finished. I didn’t know what I was going to say—I never do—but I knew the book was done, or waiting to be done.” Elie Wiesel

“Sure, but less reliably than music and dance; literature has more on its mind. One must be strict with books. I want to read only what I’ll want to reread—the definition of a book worth reading once.” Susan Sontag

Die Bibliothek der Zukunft …

… ist keine natürliche Weiterentwicklung der derzeitigen Situation, sondern eine drastische Veränderung des derzeitigen Bibliothekswesen und ich vermute auch des Selbstverständnisses vieler BibliothekarInnen.
