  • Zeiten des Aufruhrs (engl. Originaltitel: Revolutionary Road) ist der 1961 erschienene Debütroman des US-amerikanischen Schriftstellers Richard Yates. Der Roman erschien in der DDR unter dem Titel Das Jahr der leeren Träume 1975 erstmals in deutscher Sprache. 2002 kam eine neue Übersetzung heraus unter dem Titel Zeiten des Aufruhrs. Unter demselben Titel lief 2008 die Verfilmung in den deutschsprachigen Kinos an. Die wörtliche Übersetzung des Titels Revolutionary Road ist Straße der Revolution. In einer Straße dieses Namens, der sich auf den Amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg (englisch American Revolutionary War) bezieht, bewohnen die Protagonisten des Romans, die Eheleute Wheeler, ihr Eigenheim. Vor dem Hintergrund, dass ein Tonnengewicht von Anpassungsdruck jeden revolutionären Funken in den Herzen der beiden Romanfiguren erstickt, war die Titelwahl voll bitterer Ironie; Yates sagte dazu 1972 in einem Interview: „Im ganzen Land herrschte ein großes Verlangen nach Konformität, und zwar nicht nur in den Vorstädten – es war eine Art blinden und verzweifelten Sich-Klammerns an Sicherheit und Geborgenheit um jeden Preis“. 1962 war Zeiten des Aufruhrs für den National Book Award nominiert, unterlag aber gemeinsam mit dem Roman Catch-22 von Joseph Heller dem Roman Der Kinogeher von Walker Percy. Alle drei Romane gelten heute als Klassiker der Amerikanischen Literatur. (de)
  • Revolutionary Road è un romanzo scritto da Richard Yates e ambientato negli Stati Uniti di metà anni cinquanta. Nel libro viene narrata la vita di una giovane coppia, Frank e April Wheeler, che non riesce a comunicare, ingarbugliati tra nevrosi, bugie e furibonde liti. Pubblicato nel Stati Uniti nel 1961, e tre anni dopo in Italia con il titolo I non conformisti, venne subito acclamato dalla critica, ma non ottenne altrettanto successo in termini di vendite, venendo presto dimenticato. Finalista del National Book Award nel 1962, insieme a Comma 22 e L'uomo che andava al cinema, è lentamente tornato alla ribalta soltanto diversi anni dopo la morte dell'autore. Nel 2005 fu scelto dalla rivista TIME per essere incluso nella lista dei 100 migliori romanzi in lingua inglese dal 1923 ad oggi. (it)

In 2005, the novel was chosen by TIME as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present. When DeWitt Henry and Geoffrey Clark interviewed Yates for the Winter 1972 issue of literary journal Ploughshares, Yates detailed the title's subtext: I think I meant it more as an indictment of American life in the 1950s. Because during the Fifties there was a general lust for conformity all over this country, by no means only in the suburbs—a kind of blind, desperate clinging to safety and security at any price. A film adaptation of the book, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, and Kathy Bates, directed by Sam Mendes, and written by Justin Haythe, was released in 2008. (en)
  • Revolutionary Road (Brasil: Foi apenas um Sonho: Rua da Revolução /Portugal: Revolutionary Road é o primeiro romance do escritor norte-americano Richard Yates. Publicado originalmente em 31 de dezembro de 1961 pela editora Little, Brown and Company, o livro recebeu elogios da crítica, chegando a ser indicado ao prêmio National Book Award de 1962. Apesar disso, a obra nunca se tornou amplamente conhecida por leitores de massa, bem como os outros trabalhos de Yates. Sua história retrata a vida de um casal de classe média, Frank e April Wheeler. Ambientada num subúrbio na década de 50, a trama mostra a lenta e progressiva frustração que acomete os dois, conforme veem suas vidas passarem sem que realizem seus sonhos. A obra aborda temas como desilusão, medo e a sensação de sufocamento causada pela vida familiar em meio ao estilo de vida norte-americano pregado como "ideal" na época. A escrita de Yates é simples e tradicional, o que torna Revolutionary Road um livro de fácil legibilidade. Em 2005, a revista norte-americana TIME o incluiu em sua lista dos cem maiores livros publicados originalmente em inglês de 1923 até a referida data. Sua adaptação cinematográfica homônima foi lançada em 2008, dirigida por Sam Mendes e protagonizada por Leonardo DiCaprio e Kate Winslet. O filme recebeu opiniões favoráveis de especialistas, e teve um bom desempenho de bilheteria. (pt)
