This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The first time I read this I liked it a lot. Yet in that context, The Tartar Steppe made an impression. It may even have benefited from that context, given that I, like its protagonist, was all but consumed by waiting.
The dreamlike feel, the mountain setting, the debt to Kafka, the meditati The first time I read this I liked it a lot. The dreamlike feel, the mountain setting, the debt to Kafka, the meditative pace — all led me to believe that this might be, if read in another state of mind, a favourite.
Well, I reread it a month or two ago and I was disappointed. Yes, the dream-feel is great, at times, and the descriptions of the mountains are thrilling.
At times it takes flight, almost despite itself. And I like it. And I so easily could have. Vesierto all 4 comments. Assigned as a young lieutenant to a vast decaying fort long stripped of its strategic relevancy, Drogo first balks at, then slowly succumbs to, the fort’s mysterious magnetism and the regulatory structure that governs it.

The meandering narrative drifts between dreamlike passages depicting Drogo’s inner life and more workmanlike sections replicating the pedestrian nature of external life at the fort. Woven into the text is the desierot of war libdo the north that fades in and out without ever fully dissipating.
Buzzati wrote the novel on the cusp of WWII and the theme of anticipation comes across quite literally.
In addition to similarities in setting and narrative arc, the two novels transmit a librp sense of eerie foreboding, although Gracq’s lush gothic prose heightens the effect. Buzzati’s style is more straightforward and on rare occasions even strays into a sentimental grey area foreign to Gracq’s writing.
Buzzati also devotes a significant amount of exposition to the passage of time in various contexts e. The commonly cited likeness to Kafka’s work in both The Trial and The Castlewhile relevant to the shared paradigm of ‘helpless tartaris of trataros powerful faceless bureaucracy,’ do not extend much beyond the superficial, as Buzzati’s concerns regarding this paradigm are less integral to the text than Kafka’s were in his work, libo in fact feel overshadowed by the damaging effects living in a perpetual anticipatory state have on the trajectory of Drogo’s life.
Drogo is as much a victim of his own inability to simply live his life rather than waiting around for what’s to come as he is a victim of seemingly unjust military protocol. View all 5 comments. I should have liked this more. This bleak book about going nowhere. Plodding forwards endlessly while life is at an abeyance and your friends and peers and companions drift away, along with the days, and the memories, and what was worth The draw of rartaros. The dreams of youth. Smashed up against the walls of life, where time moves differently than desires.
Where life moves differently than dreams. Where events move with no regard for us, for you, for me. Where events move with no regard for us, for you, for me Luck of the draw, but we attribute it to skill and hard work. Death awaits, heedless of what we hope and desire. But lately I can not read. Can barely breathe, it seems, at night. Am up all night desieerto to do much but look at the letters on a page as they seem to swim on paper and I can not focus. And what is in this book is the pain of mundanity, the pain of the everyday, the pain ce the corporeal.
But what I crave is representation of the pain of events —I want to read the pain of betrayal, the pain of loss, the pain of disappointment—I need that which is different from the pain of the disappointment of the everyday.
The slow dripping water torture of boring life wearing you down, adding wrinkles, fat; where is my youth? This is a book about the pain of everyday, of the mundane; this a book about waking up at 8am, no, I just slapped the alarm, it’s 8: Other sleepy people deadeyed and forward stare.
The monotony of work; of the way the events are the same, day in, day out, over and over and over and over, and suddenly, finally, off work, and yes, a beer is cracked and “let’s get this party started! Didn’t I used to be fun? But not where I’m at. And this book is probably great. But I need the pain of events, not the pain of the everyday.
I can’t sleep at night. I just lie there. It’s not the monotony, but the sickness. The sickness of disappointment. The sickness of living. Which is as real as this book. A different type of pain.
Da spararsi un colpo in bocca. Se non fosse per le parti poetiche – e sono molte e belle – a questo libro non darei neanche una stellina. Una metaforica lamentela verso la vita e la condizione umana: La vita fa schifo! Andavano proprio di moda, alla grande. So che Buzzati era stato fortemente influenzato dagli autori francesi.
Ma il vero coraggio sta nel trovare qualcosa di costruttivo, suvvia, Dino, eccheccazzo! Il colpo di reni delle pagine finali non convince per niente.
Chissa’ se questa negativita’ era un sentimento profondo e intimo dell’autore o piuttosto un atteggiamento cultural-chic. Il senso di darsi un senso Breve, o forse solo intenso e sentito. Ti lascia con gli occhi sgranati e l’animo pensieroso, realisticamente allo specchio, come una rivelazione personale. La prima sulla bellezza della scrittura originale. Ed in particolare di quella che si ‘sente’ incontrando uno scritto non tradotto. E con questo libro di Buzzati ho vissuto per tutta la vicenda questa vicinanza.
Ma il buon Dino ce lo ha raccontato che aveva solo 33 anni Giovanni Drogo is stationed at an obscure fort, which guards the border against a possible Tartar invasion from the steppeland that stretches off into the distance below.
desisrto He intends for his stay there to be brief, no more than four months, but many years later he is still there, dutifully following the regular routine and hoping for a moment of glorious battle.
Indeed, there is something intoxicating about the fort, something that almost lulls ones consciousness asleep. And, so, time flies, and Giovanni Drogo is stationed at an obscure fort, which guards the border against a possible Tartar invasion from the steppeland that stretches off into the distance loss.
And, so, time flies, and quite suddenly, at least so it seems, he is an old man. Diogo is “everyman,” waiting for a moment of meaningfulness that never quite materializes, at least not in the form he expects. Still, he will have his time to show lbro. As someone around here said, if it had been on tarfaros compulsory reading list, I would have skilfully avoided it, but since it was casually mentioned by one of my friends though I have the feeling it was on her compulsory reading list at uni I loss I’d give it a try.
This was 5 or more years ago, when I bought the book and tried to read it. I gave it up after 40 pages or so due to my lack of patience. I terribly needed things to happen at the very beginning to keep me focused and interested. S As someone around here said, if it had been on any compulsory reading list, I would have skilfully avoided it, but since it was casually mentioned by one of my friends though I have the feeling it was on her compulsory reading list at uni I thought I’d give it a try.
Same thing happened to Waiting for the Barbarianswhich is said to be lubro by Buzzati’s work. Now, being older and wiser, I decided it’s time I gave the book a fair chance to impress me. I’m really pissed by my lack of reading Italian authors and I have no idea why this is happening.
I abandoned two novels by Umberto Eco which I’m determined to actually read one day and I browsed Dante and Boccaccio a long time ago. librro
And, to my knowledge, the few authors I actually read, one book each, unfortunately, are de Amicis, Svevo, Pirandello and Eco. I don’t remember if Boffa is Italian or not.
