100 Years of Ilse Aichinger – The Greater Hope

Anna Kove has translated Aichinger’s The Greater Hope into Albanian with the support of TRADUKI. Together with literary scholar Arian Leka, they visited several schools in recent weeks to discuss the author, her fate and the novel. In addition, small theatre groups were formed, which are staging the most important and dramatic moments of the text this November. As part of the performance, actor and director Kastriot Ramollari recites Aichinger’s “Rede an die Jugend” (Speech to the Youth), which Aichinger delivered at the award ceremony for the “Weilheimer Literaturpreis” in 1988.
