  • Download Reden an die Abiturienten (1999-2015) (German Edition) by Wilhelm Genazino,Birbit Vanderbeke,Herta Müller,Guntram PDF

    Renommierte deutschsprachige Autoren halten seit 1999 zum Ende eines jeden Schuljahres Reden an und für die Abiturienten im Saarland – oft mit Ratschlägen und Empfehlungen, manchmal mit Warnungen oder Mahnungen, mitunter wurde auch kritisiert, gar geschimpft. Und manchmal schauten sie auch bloß zurück auf die eigene Biographie mit ihren Irrungen und Wirrungen.
    Diese Ansprachen greifen die culture der Schulrede auf: Seit dem 18. Jahrhundert haben bekannte Autoren zu Beginn oder am Ende eines Schuljahres solche Reden gehalten, darunter Jean Paul, Johann Gottfried Herder und Friedrich Schiller. In dem ältesten deutschsprachigen Universallexikon, dem Zedler, ist der Schulrede gar ein eigener Eintrag gewidmet. Sie erfordere, heißt es dort, »etwas mehr Vorrath und Zubereitung als die Reden im gemeinen Leben«.
    Im 19. Jahrhundert und in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts wurden diese Reden zunehmend nationalistisch instrumentalisiert. Nach 1968 empfanden viele Schüler und zunehmend auch die Lehrer Abiturfeiern als unangemessen und anachronistisch und schafften sie ab.
    Im englischen Sprachraum hingegen steht die Schul- oder Universitätsrede prominenter Autoren bis heute in hohem Ansehen.
    Im Saarland ist die von Autoren gehaltene zentrale Abiturrede inzwischen Kult: Tausende Schüler, Lehrer, Eltern und Literaturinteressierte strömten seit 1999 jeweils kurz vor Beginn der Sommerferien zu den unterschiedlichsten Veranstaltungsorten, um die Reden zu hören. Der Band dokumentiert die zwischen 1999 und 2015 gehaltenen Reden.
