Winnetou

————A Novel

書籍介紹
"Continuum Impacts" are seminal works by some of the finest minds in Western thought that created a storm when they were first published, and continue to resonate in this new series. Strikingly designed to complement the controversial nature of the thoughts within, "Impacts" are essential reading for independent thinkers everywhere. Karl May's most popular work originally published in 1892 and influenced by Harriet Beecher Stowe, "Winnetou" is the story of a young Apache chief told by his white friend and blood-brother Old Shatterhand. The action takes place in the U.S. Southwest, in the latter half of the 1800s, where the Indian way of life is threatened by the first transcontinental railroad. Winnetou, the only Native Indian chief who could have united the various rival tribes to reach a settlement with the whites, is murdered. His tragic death foreshadows the death of his people. May's central theme here, as in much of his work, is the relationship between aggression, racism, and religious intolerance.
作者簡介
Karl (Carl) Friedrich May (25 February 1842 – 30 March 1912) was a popular German writer, noted mainly for adventure novels set in the American Old West (best known for the characters of Winnetou and Old Shatterhand) and similar books set in the Orient and Middle East (with Kara Ben Nemsi and Hadschi Halef Omar). In addition, he wrote stories set in Latin America and his native Germany. May also wrote poetry, a play, and composed music; he was a proficient player of several musical instruments. Many of his works were filmed, adapted for the stage, turned into audio dramas or into comics. A highly imaginative and fanciful writer, May never visited the exotic places featured in his stories until late in life, at which point the clash between his fiction and reality led to a complete change in his work.
