Früchte des Zorns




Joad Family Album, 1938 (Horace Bristol)


In the winter of 1937-38, photographer Horace Bristol and writer John Steinbeck teamed up for a Life magazine assignment and for nearly two months traveled California interviewing migrant workers of the Great Central Valley. Before finishing the project, however, Steinbeck withdrew—deciding to utilize the research for his novel The Grapes of Wrath instead of an article for Life.  When Steinbeck’s book was published in 1939, Life ran an article featuring the photographs taken by Bristol. Rather than using the real names of those photographed, Life used the fictional names of Steinbeck’s characters with captions featuring excerpts from The Grapes of Wrath—thus creating a photo album for the fictional Joad family that has since been mistaken for reality…

A list of songs inspired by literature


PWxyz hat eine faszinierende Liste mit Songs zusammengestellt, die durch Literatur inspiriert worden sind; eine Auswahl (und hier der Rest der Liste):

“Gravity’s Rainbow” von Thomas Pynchon hat Devo zu “Whip It” inspiriert:




In case you weren’t spending your spare time searching the internet for the meaning behind the words of Devo’s most famous song, we’ll tell you: Devo member Jerry Casale wrote the lyrics to “Whip It” in one night, imitating Pynchon’s parodies in Gravity’s Rainbow. Said Casale: ”[Pynchon] had parodied limericks and poems of kind of all-American, obsessive, cult of personality ideas like Horatio Alger and ‘You’re #1, there’s nobody else like you’ kind of poems that were very funny and very clever. I thought, ‘I’d like to do one like Thomas Pynchon.’”


“Der Fremde” von Albert Camus hat The Cure zu “Killing an Arab” inspiriert:




The Cure’s first single, according to Robert Smith, “was a short poetic attempt at condensing my impression of the key moments in L’Étranger.” The lyrics, like the book, describe the shooting of an Arab on a beach. Because of the track’s controversial history, the band changed the song to “Kissing an Arab” during its 2005 revival, and even performed the song as “Killing an Ahab” in 2011, with lyrics inspired by Melville.


“Das Parfüm” von Patrick Süskind hat Nirvana zu “Scentless Apprentice” inspiriert:




Patrick Süskind’s story of a man with a superhuman sense of smell who begins murdering women to create the perfect scent had direct influence on Nivrana’s “Scentless Apprentice,” which includes lyrics like “His smell smelled like no other” and “There are countless formulas for pressing flowers.” Another link: both Süskind’s character and Nirvana’s “apprentice” have no inherent body odor. Perfume was one of Kurt Cobain’s favorite books, and he had read it multiple times by the time “Scentless Apprentice” debuted on 1993′s In Utero.

James Joyce: The Cat And The Devil

















“On August 10, 1936, James Joyce started a letter to his grandson Stevie: “I sent you a little cat filled with sweets a few days ago but perhaps you do not know the story about the cat of Beaugency.”  So began what was to be Joyce’s only known story written for children. …”
