The Virginian

Author: Owen Wister
Publisher: BookRix
ISBN: 9783955008321
Release Date: 2012-11-28
Genre: Fiction

The Virginian ist die Geschichte eines einzelgängerischen Cowboys in Wyoming um 1880, der sich trotz des im Westen vorherrschenden Faustrechts an seinen persönlichen Ehrenkodex hält und so allerlei Unbilden übersteht. Owen Wister war der Sohn von Sarah und Owen Wister Sr. einer Patrizierfamilie aus Philadelphia und genoss so eine privilegierte Kindheit. Seine Großmutter war die britische Bühnenschauspielerin Fanny Kemble. Nach Schulaufenthalten in der Schweiz und in England studierte er an der renommierten St. Paul's School in Concord (New Hampshire) sowie später an der Harvard University. Dort begann er mit Beiträgen für die studentische Satirezeitschrift The Harvard Lampoon seine schriftstellerische Laufbahn und lernte seinen langjährigen Freund und späteren Präsidenten der USA, Theodore Roosevelt, kennen. 1882–1884 verbrachte er zwei Jahre in Paris. Nach seiner Rückkehr ließ er sich zunächst in New York nieder, wo er in einer Bank Anstellung fand. 1885 begann er ein Zweitstudium an der Harvard Law School. Seine Approbation als Rechtsanwalt erhielt er 1888. In dieser Zeit begann sich Wister verstärkt mit dem amerikanischen Westen zu beschäftigen. Dieses Thema entsprach ganz dem Zeitgeist; der Historiker Frederick Jackson Turner verklärte in dem einflussreichen Aufsatz The Significance of the Frontier in American History (1893) die Frontier, also die weiße Siedlungrenze im Westen, zum Geburtsort des amerikanischen Gemüts und des ihm angeblich eigenen Freiheits- und Selbstbehauptungswillens. Roosevelt legte in seinem Werk The Winning of the West (1889-96) die Bedeutung der Westexpansion für das Wohl der amerikanischen Nation dar. Während die "Zivilisierung" des Westens voranschritt, also die Vertreibung der indianischen Ureinwohner, die Besiedlung durch Weiße, und die politische Organisation der Westterritorien in US-Bundesstaaten, machte sich Wister an die Verklärung dieser verschwindenden Welt und prägte mit seinem ersten Roman The Virginian (1902; dt. Der Virginier, 1955)) den in dieser Zeit entstehenden Mythos vom "Wilden Westen" entscheidend mit.
