Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,3, Universitat Augsburg (Neuere Deutsche Literaturwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Seminar: Aus der Tiefe des Raumes - Fussball als literarisches Thema, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Nick Hornbys autobiographischer Roman, der heute zu den erfolgreichsten Buchern gehort, die das Thema Fussball behandeln, entstand in den achtziger Jahren, in einem Zeitraum in welchem der Fussballsport in England stark an Ansehen einbusste. Eine militante englische Hooliganszene und die beiden grossten Stadionkatastrophen von Heysel (Brussel) und Hillsborough (Sheffield, England) machten der einst so popularen Sportart schwer zu schaffen. Vor diesem Hintergrund behandelt die Arbeit einen besonderen Aspekt des Romans, welcher mit folgenden Fragen umschrieben werden kann: Wie stark beeinflussen die Stadionbesuche die Personlichkeit der Fans, insbesondere die des Autors? Welches Verhaltnis hat Hornby zu seinem Fussballverein hinsichtlich der Stadionbesuche; wie wird die Stadionatmosphare aus der Sichtweise des Autors erlebt? Und welche Rolle spielt das Alter in Bezug auf die Verhaltensweisen als Fan im Stadion, wie verandern sich dabei nach und nach fruhere Gewohnheiten? Dies sind nur einige Aspekte, die das Ziel der Arbeit darlegen sollen. Umfassend betrachtet soll somit das Fansein des Protagonisten in Bezug zu den meisten wichtigen Stadionerlebnissen gebracht werden. Anmerkungen des Dozenten: gute Einleitung, einige gute Stellen, gute Literaturau

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, University of Hamburg, language: English, abstract: The enthusiasm for the game of football extends far beyond the crowded bleachers of modern stadiums in metropolitan areas around the globe and handcrafted goal posts on agrarian fields in the British Lake District. The so called “beautiful game” has served as a template for countless movies, books, plays and other cultural goods. One of the most prominent writings on football and football fandom is Nick Hornby’s "Fever Pitch". Besides the topic of football, it is the author’s own story about growing up as a British child of the 1960s, an era which was shaped by issues of class and questions about the existence of a British identity. As a semi-autobiographic coming-of-age narrative about love, friendship, labour and Nick Hornby’s obsession for football, the luck and success of Arsenal, the author’s favourite team, reflects the ups and downs of his own life. According to the author, Fever Pitch is not just about a man’s obsession for football: “The book is also, in part, an exploration of some of the meanings that football seems to contain for many of us”.
