Über den Autor

Kenneth Grahame was born in Edinburgh on March 3, 1859. When he was five years old, his mother died of scarlet fever and he nearly died himself, of the same disease. His father became an alcoholic and sent the children to Berkshire to live with relatives. They were later reunited with their father, mehr anzeigen but after a failed year, the children never heard from him again. Sometime later, one of his brothers died at the age of fifteen. He attended St. Edward's School as a child and intended to go on to Oxford University, but his relatives wanted him to go into banking. He worked in his uncle's office, in Westminster, for two years then went to work at the Bank of England as a clerk in 1879. He spent nearly thirty years there and became the Secretary of the Bank at the age of thirty-nine. He retired from the bank right before The Wind in the Willows was published in 1908. He wrote essays on topics that included smoking, walking and idleness. Many of the essays were published as the book Pagan Papers (1893) and the five orphan characters featured in the papers were developed into the books The Golden Age (1895) and Dream Days (1898). The Wind in the Willows (1908) was based on bedtime stories and letters to his son and it is where the characters Rat, Badger, Mole and Toad were created. In 1930, Milne's stage version was brought to another audience in Toad of Toad Hall. Grahame died on July 6, 1932. (Bowker Author Biography) weniger anzeigen

Rezensionen

Ich bin ja eigentlich zu alt (28) für solche Bücher und nicht gerade die Zielgruppe. Aber ich mag Kinderbuch Klassiker halt.

Was mir sehr gefallen hat, ist die Atmosphäre. Die Beschreibung der Umwelt bzw. Flusslandschaften regen die Fantasie ja doch sehr an.

Ein wenig verstörend fand ichs dann doch, dass die Hauptfiguren zwar Tiere sind, sich aber ansonsten zu sehr wie Menschen verhalten. Sie schlachten und essen Vieh, bewaffnen sich, usw.. Ich weiss ja nicht, ob es irgendwie eine versteckte Gesellschaftskritik sein soll und ich sie nur nicht erfassen kann, meh.
Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob es an der Übersetzung lag, aber es gab doch den ein oder anderen Fall, wo ich den Satz noch mal ungläubig lesen musste, weil da ein Wort irgendwie nicht reinpasste (z. B. A*sch).

Im Großen und Ganzen aber doch ein sehr nettes Buch.
