The Children of the Dead ( German : Die Kinder der Toten ) is a novel by Elfriede Jelinek , first published in 1995 by Rowohlt Verlag . It is commonly regarded as her magnum opus . The novel won the Literaturpreis der Stadt Bremen in 1996. The prologue and epilogue were translated into English by Louise E. Stoehr in 1998, [1] while a full English translation by Gitta Honegger is forthcoming in 2019. [2] [3]

Next to Jelinek's novel Neid , The Children of the Dead is her longest work. It is notorious [ clarification needed ] for its large number of characters, its intricate story lines, and its ironic cross-references. Although it can be classified as a postmodern horror novel, Jelinek herself calls it a "ghost story written in the tradition of the Gothic novel ." [4]

The novel constitutes an intensive examination of the memory and suppression of the Holocaust . Along with this goes an associative mode of writing which incorporates plays on words and constantly disrupts linear narration through looping and repeated narrative strands.

There’s a fascinating backstory to why Children of the Living Dead ended up being such a shambles. Instead of my recycling it here, I suggest you stop by the highly informative  Homepage of the Dead . Go to Bits & Pieces , and scroll down to the article “An e-mail from Tor Ramsey – Director of Children of the Living Dead .” There you’ll find a damning review of the movie from Travis Stoff … and the director’s reply. As he tells his bleakly entertaining tale, Ramsey comes across as witty, smart and honest. Read the whole thing, you won’t regret it. By the end, you’ll feel pretty sorry for the guy—and clearly discern that this project was doomed from the outset.

Note:  I’ve barely scratched the surface of the sheer inept lunacy that is  Children of the Living Dead . Something tells me I’ll be blogging about it again in the near future. You have been warned …
