    Pdf/E–book (Ferdydurke) Unlike PORNOGRAFIA this takes its sweet time revving up but once the motor is cranked FERDYDURKE delivers some bizarro batshit thrills memorably unnerving encounters and genuine belly laffs The intro essay by Susan Sontag praises its sublime mockery of all attempts to normalize desire which is spot on With its tumbling prose psychological acuity and surreal gambits the novel was so far ahead of its time that Gombrowitz included

Witold Gombrowicz ¾ 9 Download Download à E-book, or Kindle E-pub ¾ Witold Gombrowicz Read & Download Ferdydurke Lly banned in Poland for decades It has nonetheless remained one of the most influential works of twentieth century European literature Ferdydurke is translated here directly from the Polish for the first time Danuta Borchardt deftly captures Gombrowicz's playful and idiosyncratic style and she allows English speakers to experience fully the masterpiece of a writer whom Milan Kundera describes as one of the great novelists of our century Extravagant brilliant disturbing brave funny wonder. I remember a song from my youth one we played on record players before households had stereos A time when said record players still had a setting for 78 rpm which is what we had to use to play this tune One of those childhood memories which never really goes away A song that was already old when we started listening to itWe was out in California one time And we wandered lookin for a room and this mad hotel And we got upstairs and opened the door and turned on the lights And there on the middle of the bed sat this great big mouse eatin a onion and cryin like a baby The Three Flames 1947 here or if you prefer the banned versionSo what has this got to do with Ferdydurke Possibly nothing Maybe everything In the sense that Grombowicz s classic is about everything all the major themes art maturityimmaturity class privilege rape naivety vs idealism coming of agereverting of agereally And one can t forget the pupamake that The pupa The pupa read it you ll see And BTW the pupa one of its meanings should never be considered cute by anyone other than a parent or grandparent certainly not a priest An absurdist adventure that won t appeal to everyone but will appeal to those with a zest for the peculiar the bizarre the political andor national literatures other than one s own in this case Poland Deserves reading for being banned by both the Nazis and the CommunistsAmong the many lines I liked Normality is a tightrope walker above the abyss of abnormality Reminds me of Sontag s Sanity is a cozy lie I have a GR buddy who s an avid reader from Poland I share him with many of you He knows who he is Some of you know who he is Read this book I think I ve figured out whatuhhappened to him

Comments and reviews on this classic of interwar Polish absurdism seem to oscillate between adoration and ambivalence This actually makes some kind of sense as my own reactions oscillated somewhat between those poles even as I read it Because for all of the rebellious wit and satiric insight on display throughout the novel despite the excellence and memorable uotability of so many individual lines there s also something very wordy and over analyzed about this Polish new wave filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski did an aptly bizarre film adaptation which even with sporadic narration has a uality of fascinating inscrutability especially as to the motivations of the characters and the significance of many of their acts In the novel however everything is extensively explained and broken down into its own insane logic As a result the novel makes a great deal of sense and as I said often conveys itself very well but takes a very long time to do so with any actual action reuiring pages of explication to get them off the ground And so the divided aspects of this brilliant boring notable and annoying little book On the other hand pages of stalling does help ramp up the absurdist tension at a couple peak scenes how long will everyone stand unspeaking in the darkened house unable to make a move because of the terrible inertia of having stood around unspeaking int he dark too long already to possibly be able to explain itFor some reason Skolimowski made this in English rather than the Polish it is so much better known in and in 1991 filming in Poland shouldn t have been restricted and not even Crispin Glover s manic turn as Mientus could find it an audience He didn t direct again for 17 years

Good grief I ve got a copy of this somewhere that I must have liberated from a second hand bookshop years ago and which I am fairly sure has long since gone the way of all books although it is hard for me to tell as much of my life is in semi storage to varying degreesAn odd story Not Mloda Polska thanks to the correction in comments but a product of the inter war period A man is taken out of adult life and made to live as a child he is forced to return to school and given foster parents to live with Naturally he is still an adult even though everybody treats him as a child There is an absurd classroom scene in which the star pupil who naturally due to the halo effect is also the most handsome is called upon by the teacher to save his lesson by explaining the greatness of presumably Mickiewicz to the rest of the class who on account of being schoolboys are somewhat blockheaded this he does by declaiming that Mickiewicz is the greatest national poet because his works move us profoundly and that they move us profoundly because Mickiewicz is the greatest national poet which I suppose is true even if unenlightening and I suspect that similar things are taught to children round the world with only the name of the poet changed as appropriate to local circumstances The only way the narrator can escape this prison of circular logic is by fighting back and upsetting as many apple carts as possible chiefly achieved by turning school life and the household of his foster parents upside down In one scene he hopes to achieve this by convincing his foster parents that something scandalous is going on in their teen aged daughter s bedroom there he opens one cupboard to reveal I believe the aforementioned pretty schoolboy result happiness on the part of the parents such a relationship is at least appropriate even if plainly over actively indulged in so the narrator is forced to open a second cupboard revealing the school teacher result complete outrage and confusion This reminds me of how a former chief inspector of schools on the podium of a teacher conference once said that he felt relationships between teachers and pupils were educative which I suppose from a broad point of view they would be since all relationships are but which rather suggested that the chief inspector had so over indulged in Plato as to loose touch with the Zeitgeist and that if you put some people up on a podium in front of a crowd there is no knowing what will fall out of their mouthsA fable ought to end with a moral but I ve forgotten mine
