The Qur'an, Morality and Critical Reason: The Essential Muhammad Shahrur eEnd to re read it at some stagespecially if I can do this as a rea a great and dark autobiographical book speaking impossible truths with *brazen and an often almost obscene courage a courage so courageous it becomes obsceneechoing bernhard whom * and an often almost obscene courage a courage so courageous it becomes obsceneechoing bernhard whom has translated this is a great monologue of negation and destruction which nonetheless hopelessly creates speaking about the one thing that saved him albeit it saved me for the sake of destruction ie his work kertesz writes In those years I recognized my life for what it was as a fact on the one hand and as a spiritual form on the other or precisely the Spiritual Form Of The Survival Instinct That No Longer Can form of the survival instinct that no longer can doesn t want to survive and probably is no longer capable of survival but one that still and because of it all demands its own that is to say its own formation like a rounded glass hard object so that it could continue to Vermeer to Eternity exist no matter why no matter for whom forveryone and no one 94also to mention some reviews i read somewhere favored the wilkinson translation over the wilson s because of this i picked up both to compare after starting with the wilson s Heaven to Betsy even if kertesz himself seems to prefer the wilkinson perhaps because this recent post nobel winning translation is being done by a larger house the wilson s was to me the far better translation much readable and one that seemed to capture the book s bravura and darkness and humor with much panache of course i don t speak hungarian so maybe i m wrong but a little research has at least this agreeing opinion from wwwforwardcomarticles13167 Kert sz sarly novels So B. It exist in two English translations Tim Wilkinson a Britishxpatriate in Budapest and translator of both fictions under review retranslated two books for Knopf that had arlier been translated by Christopher C Wilson and Katharina M Wilson and published by Northwestern University Press in the days before the author s laureate and fame Kert sz himself is said to approve of Wilkinson s translations or at least to disapprove of the Wilsons telling The Journal News I really tried to protest against the first translations but I found complete rejection The publisher was not willing to do new translations It was a really bad feeling It was as if you had a very sane character who has a rendezvous with the reader and the person who shows up is basically a real who shows up is basically a real with a stammer bad breath and a foul mouth Ladies and gentlemen of the jury of those of us who care about translation this is a case of an author having to be saved from himself or from his nthusiasm at being retranslated at interest being breathed anew into his work Fateless by the Wilsons is very word as ffective as Wilkinson s Fatelessness and Kaddish I would reread in the Northwestern translation titled Kaddish for a Child Not Born which called upon the xample of Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard an unavoidable influence whom Kert sz has translated without burying the text in received style or homage While the Wilsons are guilty of gregious sins of omission they served their Muir roles with selflessness husband and wife Edwin and Willa Muir being the first though flawed translators of Kafka having Englished an uncompromising writer of inaccessible Europe relatively Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice early and well As for Wilkinson one does not know what poetry Kert sz reads into his prose If Wilkinson is a good translator he s a middling writer He knows Hungarian he must but he hasn t much art in his native English which is paramount for a prose as spare as Kert sz s in whichvery word En plein coeur every comma countsfrom wwwforwardcomarticles13167 Kaddish for a Child Not Born by Imre Kert sz is one of a series of four novels whichxamine the life of a man who survives the Nazi concentration camps of World War IIIf Fatelessn. Amily and children children that could have been his own Kaddish for a Child Not Born is a deeply introspective poetic yet unsentimental work in which a man takes stock of his own life choices and those that have been made for him by vents beyond his contr. A great short dense post Holocaust novel by Kert sz who probably didn t win the Nobel Prize solely on this one s strength I ve sz who probably didn t win the Nobel Prize solely on this one s strength I ve read his Detective Story by a different translator and should soon at least get to Fatelessness so Detective Story by a different translator and should soon at least get to Fatelessness so m not sure how this fits among his other novels but it feels very real as it digresses loops back on itself repeats images a bald woman in a dress in front of a mirror what he thinks about when he thinks about his so called Jewishness writing as digging a grave in the air he was meant to be buried in alluding to gas chambers at Auschwitz which the authornarrator survived not like Bernhard although Bernhard is mentioned at one point not a single paragraph though it feels like one uestions what his sense of Jewishness really means contradicts or destructs sentiments like Auschwitz cannot be xplained realizes that he must work to live and work sets him free into what s Dance Real Slow essentially a prison of melancholy and pain anxistence that denies life the only The Art of Memoir existence possible for him which ultimately undermines his marriage to a woman who chooses life and children A life lived happily is a life lived mutely I wrote It turned out that to write about life means to think about life to think about life is to uestion it and the only one to uestion thelement of his life is one suffocated by it or feeling out of place for one reason or another It turns out I don t write to find joy on the contrary it turns out I seek pain the sharper the better bordering on the unbearable sort uite probably because pain is truth and the answer to the uestion of what constitutes truth is uite simple I wrote truth is what consumes Long semi colon replete sentences An approach that follows its instinct or its anti instinct Repeats so to say a lot and very time it distracted me since it seems like people say so to speak Again as with Detective Story just re read my review felt like the translation was a bit wonky at times interesting that I sensed something off at times with different translators maybe they re both maintaining loyalty to occasional wonkiness in the author s prose A few typos in my dition Either I read the last ten pages poorly or the last ten pages when he reveals the nd and the aftermath of his marriage didn t uite hold my attention as some of the previous pages had but I read them in bed super tired and so I probably failed them Will try to re read I m thinking about a year of re reading starting May 1 to celebrate my 10 year anniversary of writing reviews on here The sort of short dense real hefty novel I love 3 StarsDear Mr KerteszThis text only passed my yes because of my uni subject where it is apart of the curriculum it probably would ve made my TBR otherwise Your novel Kaddish for an Unborn Child maybe a whopping 160 pages or so it packs so much into those pagesMy three stars are not because I found this average but so there is so much in this text that I would need to re read this over and over to gain further understanding and meaning it is a text that reuires to be slowly read in small doses to able to decipher your intentions For my first read through I struggled to connect to your narrator because of this overload of messaging and meaning I wasn t able to do it that kind of justice and I feel ven if I didn t have the time constraints I am just not that style of reader The didn t have the time constraints I am just not that style of reader The was a steady stream of consciousness thoughts which were hard to ngage at times and I think add in the fact that the text has been translated from Hungarian to English at times there wasn t this PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition easy sense or reason While it was hard work and I was overly disconnected from the narrator I could feel the disconnect he felt from the world the disorientation of his place in the world a world where he was intend.
