Get Colpi di coda (Italian Edition) PDF

By Altan

Bastano poche parole alla misurata satira di Altan. Così come il tratto si concentra sull’essenziale. Eppure si stagliano inconfondibili. Sono vignette che fanno “implodere” los angeles risata. Guizzi trattenuti d’intelligenza. Un intuito fenomenale le anima, sintetizzando miracolosamente forza e leggerezza, analisi e ironia. Che si tratti della politica, della società, della coppia, degli affetti famigliari o degli effetti della finanza, queste acute parabole in due righe hanno una potenza devastante. Le guardiamo, assaporiamo according to un istante l’amaro, e ridiamo. O piuttosto, sorridiamo. Perché un po’ del ridicolo di questi personaggi è anche dentro ciascuno di noi, ma non vogliamo ammetterlo. E come tutti battiamo dei gran colpi di coda in line with non rassegnarci.

Questa selezione delle vignette recenti di Altan consistent with “la Repubblica” e “l’Espresso” racconta l’Italia degli ultimi tempi, depressa dalla crisi economica e tentata dalle nuove sirene del Palazzo. Un paese dove anche l’amore e l. a. famiglia sono intrisi di amarezza e auto-ironica disperazione.

Read e-book online No auf Bildungsreise: Außerirdische Anmerkungen zum PDF

By Bernd Franzinger

NO wird vom Planeten Nostalgia auf die Erde geschickt, um das deutsche Schulsystem zu inspizieren. Dabei trifft er auf Gero, einen Bildungsbürokraten und Gesamtschul-Ideologen. In sokratischer Manier fragt ihm der kleine Außerirdische Löcher in den Bauch. Dadurch prüft er Geros Ideologie auf Herz und Nieren – und entzaubert sie.
"Auf den ersten Blick könnte 'NO auf Bildungsreise' als eine kuriose Mischung aus delusion, Comedy und Science-Fiction missverstanden werden. Doch die taktisch geschickte Verschleierung verbirgt letztlich eine humoristische Darstellung des deutschen Schulsystems ... NO soll die Eignung und Übertragung des Bildungssystems auf seinen Planeten überprüfen, Gero verteidigt das process. Mit zunehmendem Gedankenaustausch wird ersichtlich, dass NO hinter der Fassade eines geordneten structures Chaos sieht. Im conversation entsteht eine messerscharfe, pointierte examine, Gedanken an bildungspolitische Nivellierung werden ebenso laut wie Wortspiele: Ist diese Gemeinschaftsschule eine gemeine Schule? Vielleicht weil sie falsche Erwartungen weckt? NO mutmaßt, dass Schüler als Versuchskaninchen missbraucht werden. Werden Ideologen zu Gleichheitsaposteln? ... Das Buch (ist) ein wichtiger Beitrag zum Hinterfragen des Bildungssystems: Es enthält von der strukturierten Darstellung des dreigliedrigen Schulsystems bis hin zu Problemen der Pisa-Studien und des Schülertransports nahezu alle Fragen, die uns aktuell bewegen. Hauptpunkt ist die Gefahr einer pädagogischen Nivellierung." (Reiner Henn in DIE RHEINPFALZ vom 17.8.2013)
