Der Zensor als systemtreuer, ignoranter Bürokrat, der einem autoritären, repressiven Staat dient und der Literatur erheblichen Schaden zufügt – dies ist das gängige Bild. Dass es jedoch viel zu kurz greift, beweist Robert Darnton in seiner fesselnden, glänzend recherchierten Darstellung. Der renommierte US-Historiker zeigt, nach welchen Mechanismen die Kontrolle von Literatur funktioniert hat und wer die Menschen waren, die dahinter steckten.
Das vorrevolutionäre Frankreich, Indien zur Zeit der Kolonialherrschaft, das DDR-Regime – um sich dem Phänomen der Zensur zu nähern, blickt Robert Darnton auf unterschiedliche Zeiten und unterschiedliche Orte. Im Mittelpunkt seiner Studie steht die individual des Zensors, seine Arbeit, sein Selbstverständnis, seine Beziehung zu Autoren, Verlegern und Buchhändlern. Dass der Zensor dem Literaturbetrieb nicht notwendigerweise schaden wollte, sondern sich bei aller Staatstreue auch als sein Unterstützer begriff, ist nur eine der überraschenden Erkenntnisse. So entsteht auf Grundlage exklusiven Quellenmaterials ein ungewöhnliches, facettenreiches Stück Kulturgeschichte – von einem der renommiertesten Historiker unserer Zeit.

Das Ziel dieser Arbeit soll nicht sein, einen Überblick über die zahlreichen Selbstporträts in Rembrandts vollständigem Œuvre zu vermitteln. Nach einer knappen Vorstellung der außergewöhnlichen ersten Selbstbildnisse als Vergleichsmöglichkeit soll anschließend vielmehr der Fokus auf das Spätwerk gelegt werden, da diese Schaffensphase nachhaltig als tiefgreifend und bemerkenswert gilt. Die Selbstbildnisse sollen außerdem kurz in das Lebenswerk eingeordnet und ihre besondere Be-deutung erläutert werden.
Vorweg soll das Leben des Künstlers paraphrasiert werden, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf den Verlusten des Privatlebens gelegt wird. Hier ist herauszustellen, ob er seine intimen, vielleicht verzweifelten und einsamen Gedanken möglicherweise unterbewusst im Werk auslebt, oder sich mit voller Absicht skizzenhaft und mit deutlichen Alterserscheinungen darstellt.
Die Literaturlage zum Thema ist ausgeprägt und vielseitig. Das umfassende Leben und Schaffen Rembrandts wird in unzähligen Abhandlungen herausgestellt. Im Be-sonderen beschäftigen sich die Publikationen ausdrücklich mit den Selbstbildnissen des Niederländers da dieser Bestandteil seines Wirkens als meisterhaft angesehen wird und viele Interpretationsansätze offen hält.
