Monkey Beach from the Author: Eden Robinson. A young Native American woman remembers her volatile childhood as she searches for her lost brother in the Canadian wilds in an extraordinary, critically acclaimed debut novel As she races along Canada’s Douglas Channel in her speedboat—heading toward the place where her younger brother Jimmy, presumed drowned, was last seen—twenty-year-old Lisamarie Hill recalls her younger days. A volatile and precocious Native girl growing up in Kitamaat, the Haisla Indian reservation located five hundred miles north of Vancouver, Lisa came of age standing with her feet firmly planted in two different worlds: the spiritual realm of the Haisla and the sobering “real” world with its dangerous temptations of violence, drugs, and despair. From her beloved grandmother, Ma-ma-oo, she learned of tradition and magic; from her adored, Elvis-loving uncle Mick, a Native rights activist on a perilous course, she learned to see clearly, to speak her mind, and never to bow down. But the tragedies that have scarred her life and ultimately led her to these frigid waters cannot destroy her indomitable spirit, even though the ghosts that speak to her in the night warn her that the worst may be yet to come. Easily one of the most admired debut novels to appear in many a decade, Eden Robinson’s Monkey Beach was immediately greeted with universal acclaim—called “gripping” by the San Diego Union-Tribune, “wonderful” by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and “glorious” by the Globe and Mail, earning nominations for numerous literary awards before receiving the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. Evocative, moving, haunting, and devastatingly funny, it is an extraordinary read from a brilliant literary voice that must be heard.

Key Elements Of Storywriting In Monkey Beach Oral Tradition Turned Into Literature from the Author: Sina Laura Rautmann. Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2,0, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg (Institute of English Studies), language: English, abstract: Only very few people are used to storytelling for even fairy tales are written down and read out loud to children the same way over and over again without alteration. Changing perspective to first nation tribes one can easily discover the importance that oral tradition and storytelling has to these people. It existed long before literature was introduced by the settlers in the post-colonial era. While contemporary Canadian fiction and short story writing developed in the middle of the nineteen-hundredth century, Native Canadian Writing was forced to create their own distinctive style of writing. By combining storytelling with literature the new genre of storywriting was created. In this paper I will analyze the key features of storywriting and will exemplify them with quotes from the book Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson (2000). First I will present a short overview over the author and the book in general. Then I will give a brief overview about the main motifs, symbols and topics that the book deals with. In the main part of this paper I will present different quotes and show typical aspects for oral tradition that can be found within them.

Der Strand from the Author: Alex Garland. Der junge Engländer Richard ist mit dem Rucksack in Thailand unterwegs – abseits der überfüllten Routen des Massentourismus, auf der Suche nach der wahren, unverfälschten Seele des Landes, dem einzigartigen Abenteuer. Als er zusammen mit einem französischen Pärchen einen entlegenen Strand entdeckt, glaubt er am Ziel seiner Träume angelangt zu sein: weißer Sand und farbige Korallengärten, ein majestätischer Wasserfall, umringt von tropischem Dschungel, und ein buntgemischtes Häufchen junger Leute aus aller Welt, die hier ihr Lager aufgeschlagen haben. Es ist das reinste Paradies. Bis der Strand sein wahres Gesicht zu erkennen gibt. Und sich als eine grausame Hölle entpuppt, die alles zu vernichten droht. „Der Strand“ wurde sehr erfolgreich unter dem Titel „The Beach“ mit Leonardo Di Caprio verfilmt.
