Notă biografică

Harper Lee wurde am 28. April 1926 unter dem Namen Nelle Lee in Monroeville in Alabama geboren und starb dort am 19. Februar 2016. Sie war eine US-amerikanische Schriftstellerin.Lee wuchs als jüngstes von vier Kindern eines Rechtsanwalts und einer Hausfrau in Monroeville auf, wo sie ihren High School-Abschluss machte und sich mit dem zwei Jahre älteren Truman Capote anfreundete. Ab 1944 studierte sie Rechtswissenschaften, wobei sie jedoch eher der Literatur zugetan war und als Chefredakteurin für eine Studentenzeitschrift tätig war.Ein Stipendium in der englischen Stadt Oxford 1948 bewog Lee dazu, das Jurastudium ganz aufzugeben. Sie zog nach New York, wo sie sich ihren Lebensunterhalt unter anderem am Schalter von Fluggesellschaften verdiente. Ihre literarischen Ambitionen wurden ab 1957 unterstützt - von einem mit Capote befreundeten Ehepaar. Im selben Jahr reichte Lee ihr erstes Manuskript ein, das zunächst abgelehnt wurde. Mit Hilfe ihrer Lektorin und unbestätigten Gerüchten nach auch Capotes wurde der Roman "To Kill a Mockingbird" daraus, der 1960 sofort zu einem weltweiten Erfolg wurde. Lee erhielt 1961 den Pulitzer-Preis, die Verfilmung ein Jahr später gewann drei Oscars.Lee zog sich dann aus dem Literaturbetrieb weitgehend zurück. Sie assistierte ihrem Freund Capote bei dessen Roman "In Cold Blood", veröffentlichte nur noch wenige Essays und keine Bücher mehr bis 2015. Ein verschollen geglaubtes Manuskript wurde entdeckt und erschien als eine Fortsetzung von "To Kill a Mockingbird" unter dem Namen "Go Set a Watchman". Bis heute ist unklar, ob Lee dies wirklich wollte.Harper Lee lebte zurückgezogen mit ihrer Schwester und nach deren Tod in einem Altenheim in Monroeville. Sie starb im Februar 2016 im Alter von 89 Jahren im Schlaf.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel—a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice—but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many dis-tinctions since its original publication in 1960. It has won the Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. It was also named the best novel of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal). HarperCollins is proud to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the book's publication.
