Greetings from Cant
Novel



In August 1791 Maria von Herbert from Klagenfurt writes a letter to Immanuel Kant in Königsberg. She is asking the ageing celibate for comfort and advice – because Maria von Herbert is lovesick. This is historical documented. The young and talkative amanuensis of Kant is answering her in the name of his master and he responds to problems, the young woman is not suffering from. This is documented in Brandstetter’s way. Kant’s amanuensis reflects on various peculiarities and strangnesses; f.e. whether one can admire Kant, when one is admiring Goethe as well. And last but not least he reflects on a question, that affects all of us: how to get rid of lovesickness?
This one-letter-novel is humorous, witty and smart, full of sarcasm as well as sapiency. Greetings from cant is a book is comfort and advice – but, most of all, it is a pleasurable read.

Alois Brandstetter, born in 1939 in Pichl, lives and works as a freelance writer in Klagenfurt. Numerous awards; f.e. the Wilhelm-Raabe-Prize 1984, the Heinrich-Gleißner-Prize 1994, the Adalbert-Stifter-Prize and the Cultural Prize of Upper Austria 2005.
