Ô Мелкий бес Ê Download by Ö Fyodor Sologub Peredonov glared angrily at the salt If you can get your hands on this one, read it One of the funniest novels ever written.
Symbolism is a word that is so variably applied that it has almost become worthless There s the academic and IMO masturbatory symbolism of Jarry, the complex transcendent system of metaphysical signification that is present in Scriabin and Bely, the hazy expansive undefined ness of Maeterlink and so on but Sologub, in this work is none of these His symbolism instead is something of an aloof determinant that has no saving grace or final answer but it does promote a deep understanding of the terms and conditions that result in human interaction Nobody calls Knut Hamsun a symbolist in term of decadence but so in his comparison of nature and man in an attempt to posit a phenomenology of experience as being at the same time within and above man.
Sologub s writ Cartea asta e o votc tare Dup primele pahare devii extrem de vesel, jovial, exuberant Apoi, pe m sur ce bei, amu e ti, se face din ce n ce mai ntuneric, contururile devin alungite, str mbe, de parc ai privi totul printr o lentil defect Apoi i se taie filmul i te treze ti a doua zi n uc, mahmur i ne tiind cum ai ajuns acas L am comparat pe autor cu al nostru Caragiale, dar exist o mare diferen ntre ei n timp ce caricaturile caragialiene sunt realizate cu peni fin , mucalit , Sologub folose te de a dreptul bidineaua Totul e mult mai brutal, mai direct, scos de a dreptul din ntunecimile incon tientului uman, nc t ajungi s te ntrebi cu groaz chiar a a chiar tia suntem unde i binele i frumosul care ar trebui s caracterizeze umanitate Yes finally an author with balls, who is describing the human society exactly the way it is I think a lot of modern authors should read stuff like this, and understand that compared to this novel from Sologub, their work is just dull masturbation There is a lot of dialogue, the book has a very rapid pace However, everything is where it is supposed to be, no piece of dialogue is too much every phrase has been given a lot of thought.
There is comic, there is laughter but boy, that is actually some sort of sad grin Do we feel sorry for Peredonov Talking from the doctor s point of view, the guy had paranoid schizofrenia which got worse along the book Sologub presents phantastically the aggravation of the disease The way Peredo I m sorry to say I hadn t heard of this book before or if I had, I didn t recognize it when I saw it on a friend s bookshelf after a few hours of drinking wine Wasss dat hiccup book So in the charming way I have, I of course asked to borrow it That was a few months ago It took me a while to clear time in my reading schedule for this one, and then I started thinking I d breeze through it, but found very early on this was not going to be a quick read.
This is supposedly the funniest Russian novel Ever I m always intrigued by comments like that, but at the end of the day I totally suck at reading books called the funniest I m so busy looking for the humor that sometimes when I m disappointed when the humor happens It s almost anticlimactic.
But I m also a fan of Russian novels, semi obscure the better So I trudged on.
In this novel we have Peredonov, a truly messed



Pered nov un insegnante che aspira come unica meta alla promozione ad ispettore scolastico, un uomo gretto, il termine giusto potrebbe essere pusillanime Abita in una citt dal cielo sempre grigio che sembra aver condizionato nell animo i suoi cittadini, vive con una donna, Varv ra, che non vuole sposare fino a quando lei non gli avr fatto ottenere la promozione agognata Varv ra finger d aver scritto una lettera molto influente e gli far credere che la promozione non tarder ad arrivare ma non arriva Passa il tempo e Pered nov diventa ancor pi diffidente verso tutti comincia a questo punto un giro di incontri con procuratori, capo di polizia, preside del ginnasio in cui non far altro che rendersi ancor pi ridicolo questa parte centrale del libro ricorda Le anime morte di G A fantastic book by another Russian I had yet to read This book gradually gets madder and madder.
Not contemporary and pre Stalin, Sologub was born just after the emancipation of the serfs and basically invented himself as a writer, indeed a writer thought by others particularly Blok to be immensely important This, his most recognisable and available work, shows how good a writer he was There is not one really likeable character They are all mad in there own way The book charts the descent into craziness of a provincial school teacher Along the way it portrays provincial pre revolution life No real attempt is given to flesh out any of these characters except for the mad Peredonov Peredonov is as crazy as Gogol s Chichikov but Let s talk about decadence.
This is one of the most abused adjectives in the English language Sooo decadent, Karen, mother of three moans over a chocolate lava cake at a chain restaurant in a Missouri exurb as she frets about how it will test the waistline of her Lane Bryant slacks.
Well, let me tell you, Sologub has different ideas.
Like dressing a schoolboy as a geisha and throwing him into a beauty contest for three sisters, or throwing your garbage across the walls of your house just because it vaguely amuses you when you re hammered.
Equal to anything Wilde, Mirbeau, or Huysmans were doing around the same time.
Fyodor Sologub 1863 1927 Smooth is the surface of my mirror and pure its construction Repeatedly measured and painstakingly checked, it has not a single blemish.
The watershed between the realist canon of the 19th century Russian novel and the modernist novels of the Russian literary Silver Age was Fyodor Sologub s The Little Demon 1907 , but this striking novel still has sharp teeth and is of much than just historical interest It is inventive, engaging and very aptly expressed it also offers the reader no hope for the human race.
Born Fyodor Kuzmich Teternikov into the family of a poor tailor who died early of tuberculosis, he somehow managed to graduate from the St Petersburg Teachers Institute and begin a career as provincial secondary school teacher In light of the way he describes provincial life in The Little Demon, he must have found that time trying A Dark Classic Of Russia S Silver Age, This Blackly Funny Novel Recounts A Schoolteacher S Descent Into Sadism, Arson And MurderMad, Lascivious, Sadistic And Ridiculous, The Provincial Schoolteacher Peredonov Torments His Students And Has Hallucinatory Fantasies About Acts Of Savagery And Degradation, Yet To Everyone Else He Is An Upstanding Member Of Society As He Pursues The Idea Of Marrying To Gain Promotion, He Descends Into Paranoia, Sexual Perversion, Arson, Torture And Murder Sologub S Anti Hero Is One Of The Great Comic Monsters Of Twentieth Century Fiction, Subsequently Lending His Name To The Brand Of Sado Masochism Known As Peredonovism The Little Demon Made An Immediate Star Of Its Author Who, Refuting Suggestions That The Work Was Autobiographical, Stated No, My Dear Contemporaries It Is About You This Grotesque Mirror Of A Spiritually Bankrupt Society Is Arguably The Finest Russian Novel To Have Come Out Of The Symbolist Movement
