A sort of candy of an existional novella It is about just what the title says However here we are talking about real literature writers probably ones who concern themselves with prose and describing human emotionsthan entertaining readers and plot twists Pessoa once said something to effect that to feel your feelingfully andconsciously a requirement, IMO, for great writing you need to starve yourself of too many emotions thus you will always be conscious of the few that you do feel thus you need to cut away from all social contact and that is what the protagonist seems to be doing He is definitely have strong feelings about nothing that happens in the afternoon and is conscious about it. Even better than I m not a big fan of Peter Handke Normally, I find his scientific objective outlook too cold, his careful prose too dour, his virtually plotless narratives too cryptic Nor do I find the comparisons to Beckett convincing sure, he s a master of language or appears to be, courtesy of his translators , but where s the humour And in fact, humour is thin on the ground in this book too, but something rescues it from the brittleness of his other works As always, he s intense A shaft of light seems to flood whatever he describes the details are lucid, hyper real, otherworldly But where so often I find his seemingly random cacophony of images meaningless, here, thanks to the device of the writer within the work, he achieves something like harmon
It could be convincingly argued that much of what Peter Handke has written is actually about the process of writing, of finding words to describe what is, in many cases, indescribable Most of his characters are searching for something that they are unable or can t be bothered to define The search takes them from one place to another, on a random or circular journey that mirrors or mimics a process of discovery The Afternoon of a Writer is another of these works, with the significant difference that the protagonist is a writer, and what s , a character we are invited to take to be Handke himself His journey begins with the recollection of a time when he thought he had lost contact with language, when he had been unable to work and thus had lost hi » Nachmittag eines Schriftstellers ↠´ Why was it only when alone that he was able to participate fully My sleep has been eroded for months now, first a deprivation of carbohydrates and now the new work responsibilities have left me precarious I am thus aggressively self aware during the wee hours Peter Handke has successfully distilled such levels of examination and rendered it as literature The protagonist is an author who finishes up his day s work, cleans around his flat and then goes for a constitutional, stops at a pub, goes to meet a translator and finally returns home Full stop I recommend this for all who find the day starting at 3 am. Ein Werk, so dachte er, war etwas, bei dem das Material fast nichts war, das Gef ge fast alles etwas, das im Stillstand, ohne besonderes Schwungrad, in Bewegung war bei dem alle Elemente einander in Schwebe hielten das offen war, jedermann zug nglich, durch Gebrauch nicht abnutzbar Schreibend leben ist Handke die einzig m gliche Seinsform, zugleich aber ein Tabubruch, der zur Trennung von der Welt f hrt. A mere wisp of a novel, exactly as advertised, narrating the hours in the life of a writer between finishing his work for the day and laying down to sleep and rise to return to work the next day In between the act of writing that makes a writer who they are, this novel presents as meditative meanderings spent reflecting on the act of writing as well as preserving the possibility and necessity of continuing to write on the next day Sparse, often brilliant, and so diaphanous as to feel banal occasionally as well a good thing, I think, for life is mostly just that , The Afternoon of a Writer entranced me enough to read it twice this time because I m working on a novel myself in much the same tone, if a tadovertly post Einem Dezember Nachmittag Handelt DieVon Peter Handke Ver Ffentlichte Erz Hlung Die Arbeit Am Schreibtisch Ist F R Diesen Tag Beendet, Sie Wird Erst Am N Chsten Vormittag Fortgesetzt Eine Zwischenzeit Also In Ihr Ereignet Sich Nichts Besonderes, Nichts Au Ergew Hnliches Immerhin, Der Erste Schnee Des Jahres F Llt Aber Gerade Dieses Noch Nicht Durch Bedeutungen Verstellte Ist Es, Dem Der Schriftsteller Auf Dem Gang Von Seinem Schreibtisch In Die Stadt, Von Deren Zentrum Zu Deren Peripherie Und Auf Dem Nachhauseweg Seine [Peter Handke] ð Nachmittag eines Schriftstellers [mixed-martial-arts PDF] Ebook Epub Download È Aufmerksamkeit Widmet Knjiga Popodne pisca deo je donacije Novosadskoj razmeni knjiga, izdava ke ku e Prometej Donacije autora i izdava a prihvatamo u svako doba, i iz svake od njih biramo po jednu knjigu koja e biti obra ena prikazana na blogu Prerazmi ljavanje Prikaz ove knjige mo ete o ekivati do kraja godine doda u link u komentaru. I finished this book in my bookstore The A C is broken, it s the 4th of July and it feels as if everyone is at some palatial summer estate, leaving the city abandoned to the heat, the rats, and the roaches This book is a short travelogue hell, the title of the book is the plot of the book We follow a writer, taking a break, wandering through the city from the mountain which he works He watches snow muses on the futility of writing contemplates the self imposed loneliness of his existence watches strange people drink in a bar meets a translator who tells him he s happy now that he s no longer writing and generally meanders and mulls I remember my old mentor once told me all of Proust can t hold up, quantitatively, to one moment in one quotidian day eating
