Berlin Alexanderplatz free read × 6 Pf il cobra appena uscito di prigione e terrorizzato all'idea di essere nuovamente libero resta unica di una bellezza disperata e assoluta Giuseppe Culicchi. This book is said to be one of the reuired readings for high school students in Germany When it was published in 1929 it became a monstrous hit and the book s popularity has been sustained all these yearsReason this is the first German book that used the stream of consciousness style of James Joyce This was also one of the reasons why I tried hard to first read Ulysses serialized from 1918 to 1920 prior to cracking this one up I found this easier to read despite the fact that I used a guide book while reading Ulysses I think the reason was that the English translation of Eugene Jolas is just readable Although just like Ulysses also not always understandable Honestly I think I only understood 34 of what the author Alfred Doblin 1878 1957 was trying to tell But still like Ulysses I guess it does not really matter The reason is that this modernist work does not want to be fully understood since it is multi layered with its internal rather than external as in most contemporary books conflicts Thus the book can be interpreted into so many ways that you don t know if what you think of it is right or wrong Just like in some hypothetical uestions there are just no right and wrong answersHowever the gist is something like this and please do correct me if I got anything incorrect because as I said I only understood 34 of it Frank Biberkopf is an ex convict case manslaughter When he steps out from prison Nazism is on the rise in Germany Frank wants to have a decent life as he sees his release as his second life He tries on several jobs only to experience the harsh realities because Berlin at the time is unforgiving for ex convicts like him He loses his arm from a foiled robbery he becomes a pimp he is framed for murder by his friend turned foe Reinhold but because he is not bad looking he also falls in love at one time It s just that the woman was untrue to him so in the end Frank feels that his life inside the prison is better that what he feels outside I felt that claustrophobic atmosphere while reading the book The irony of that feeling when you seem to be inside a prison when in fact you are living free in an outside world is very evidentI think this book deserves a 5 star rating The only problem is that it is hard to understand Maybe it is easy to understand if it is read by a German in German language However my advice to those who want to read this in English is to just keep on reading Doblin just goes on and on and sometimes you don t know who among the present characters in the scene is talking since the spoken parts enclosed in uotes are without references to their owners However there are many beautifully arresting passages that will keep you interested At some point extremely interested Reading this is like listening to conversations where the participants are pouring their thoughts out no holds barred It reminded me of the time when I was in still living in our hometown located in a Pacific island I used to hear the conversations of my father and his buddies while they drank beer until they did not know what they were doing They sang the debated they laughed in total abandon They discussed a lot of different interesting topics and since they had too much to drink they had the tendency to say their innermost thoughts some of them very interesting some were mundane some were really nonsense There were times that they even had our local priest Catholic with them and the priest could be an rowdy as my father and his friends As they say sometimes you will know the real person once he or she gets real drunk The fish is caught by its mouthThis book is like that The characters are mouthing their innermost thoughts and since it was Berlin at the time of Hitler s rise some of what they were saying could cause their lives or reveal what they really think about their religion as told in the Bible So some of them contained those in their minds but Doblin let you hear them This for me made this book very interesting Also if you want to know how was it to live in Alexanderplatz downtown Berlin in the 1920s this book is for you The place is pictured here as dark and discriminatory and yet we all love European cities no matter in which century they were Europe was the old world and the center of art music and yes classic literature Since I am interested on that I kept on reading I am happy I did
