The Great War
Jul 09, Miljana rated it it was amazing. Jan 30, Danka rated it it was amazing. Zato ocena jedva 1. An interesting book about world war I. The political and military information about WWI and the revolution in Russia are minimized only to the very essential for the story.
The book is built on the personal stories of the human beings who took part in the war and many of them lost their lives in it. Less or more famous people lend their experiences, feeling, losses and happy moments in order to form a strong net of threads that meet, part and meet again under different circumstances.
What makes An interesting book about world war I. What makes the book particularly interesting is the “magical” notes that underline the plot. A changing box in a tailor’s shop that travel people to the future and back, cart-postals that write and post themselves even weeks after the soldier is dead, a small cloud of poisonous gas that traveled across the border and killed its inventor’s wife and dozens of other stories that surpass “realism” and make is a book that moves beyond the lines of a boring account or memoir.
The only negative point is that I feel that the book spend a little too much space for the description of the russian revolution and the execution of the Czar and his family.
Veliki Rat by Aleksandar Gatalica
We have the Salon Gatalica if he had so choose could have made this a 1, page epic but I think it showed great restraint to just settle on a page novel. Really, it doesn;t need to be any longer than that. This novel has a vast amount of characters recurring in Review of The Great War by Aleksandar Gatalica, translated by Will Firth This is a sprawling novel dealing with the various aleksandr of World War I, starting with the doctor examinng Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in the morgue.
Often I feel when we in Western Europe talk about World War I, it is the Western front but one of the things I liked is the focus on the other fronts on this particularly the Salonika front. Spies and espionage also feature too from the singers and entertainers in London and Paris. If I have one criticism, the novel also ignores Montenegro with just a couple of mentions aoeksandar it although so did the peace conferences to create the treaties settling World War I.
I have felt for a while I’ve need a good non-fiction book about World War I but why when Gatalica and Firth could do so in fiction what many would struggle to do in non-fiction.
This novel of World War I reminds me of earlier works regarding World War II, Curzio Malaparte’s Kaputt and Joseph Heller’s Catch 22, the former in scenes so vividly evoked as to appear rooted in observed fact and the latter in its patently absurd elements that underscore the folly of war as humanity’s greatest failing. Where it differs from Kaputt is in its expansive range of character perspectives, from the aging and out of touch members of European royal families to artists and musicians, off This novel of World War I reminds me of earlier works regarding World War II, Curzio Malaparte’s Kaputt and Joseph Heller’s Catch 22, the former in scenes so vividly evoked as to appear rooted in observed fact and the latter in its patently absurd elements that underscore the folly of war as humanity’s greatest failing.
Where it differs from Kaputt is in its expansive range of character perspectives, from the aging and out of touch members of European royal families to artists and musicians, officers and enlisted men, shopkeepers and charlatans.
Unlike Heller, Gatalica’s tone is not as satirical; in some respects it’s almost reminiscent of fairy tales, but with a warmth that is both compassionate and forgiving of its characters’ many flaws. I wanted to give this four or five stars, and the first half of the book deserves that many. Then the second half bogs down and is simply a slog to the drawn out end.
The quirky start and bits of fairy dust sprinkled on the stories were a aleosandar. Favorite bits, the self written postcards arriving after a death, and the man who had two of everything. Aug 13, Dejan Vukmirovic rated it it was amazing. Such a grand book. Such a frightful experience going through these pages and “witnessing” deaths of almost all of the characters, on almost every alekzandar there is a death of one of them – starting with the first page.
A bit lice-ridden, but that doesn’t matter,” so begins a postcard, produced by Pierre Albert-Birot of the French avante-garde. These miraculous cards, created to fill the niche of writing materials used by soldiers writing to their families, continue to write and mail themselves after the soldiers have died thus delaying the inevitable news. The sentence, the cards, and the miracles provide a clear measure of the Serbian novelist, Aleksander Gatalica’s novel of the First World War, T “I’m well.
Gatalica weaves together the stories of Serbians, Austro-Hungarians, French, British, German, Turkish, Russian and Italian soldiers, doctors, and citizens to create a rollicking chronicle of the Great War, especially on the Balkan Front. The novel depicts the superstitions, miracles, mud, back-biting poets and painters, soldiers and non-combatants trying to survive the war.
It wanders gattalica and forth through time, reality and something else, setting the state for the events of the feliki and marking the War years with the death of various aleksnadar -“This end the year for one trader. This is a book to read over longer period of time, to dip in and out of, rather than all in one go. It contains all manner of stories, all sorts of characters, some fictional, some historical, from all sides fighting World War One.
There is plenty of art as well as tragedy, and touches of surrealism, plus little known anecdotes and events some of them real, some of them made-up. Oct 09, Marina rated it really liked it.
