Peter von Matt loves Switzerland, a country oscillating between idyllic bucolic landscapes and globalisation, between alpine tradition and high-tech tunnels. Rich in imagery and wisdom, with wit and energetic vehemence, von Matt takes a critical look at society: at its sloppy use of language and its isolation against immigrants. With German writers such as Friedrich Schiller and Max Frisch in mind, he criticizes the politicians and compatriots of his homeland. This book shows us why literature is vital for every citizen’s consciousness.
