Witold Gombrowicz ´ 9 Review

Summary ã Ferdydurke ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub In this bitterly funny novel by the renowned Polish author Witold Gombrowicz a writer finds himself tossed into a chaotic world of schoolboys by a diabolical professor who wishes to reduce him to childishness Originally published in Poland in 1937 Ferdydurke became an instant literary sensation and catapulted the young author to fame Deemed scandalous and subversive by Nazis Stalinists and the Polish Communist regime in turn the novel as well as all of Gombrowicz's other works was officia. Ferdydurke is some sort of abracadabra and the novel can be defined as an absurdist abstraction Mankind is accursed because our existence on this earth does not tolerate any well defined and stable hierarchy everything continually flows spills over moves on everyone must be aware of and be judged by everyone else and the opinions that the ignorant dull and slow witted hold about us are no less important than the opinions of the bright the enlightened the refined This is because man is profoundly dependent on the reflection of himself in another man s soul be it even the soul of an idiot I absolutely disagree with my fellow writers who treat the opinions of the dull witted with an aristocratic haughtiness and declare odi profanum vulgus What a cheap and simplistic way of avoiding reality what a shoddy escape into specious loftiness I maintain on the contrary that the dull and narrow minded they are the urgent and compelling are their opinions just as an ill fitting shoe hurts us than a well fitting one And the judgments of the oafs prevail and Ferdydurke is the world seen through the eyes of idiots Normality is a tightrope walker above the abyss of abnormality How much potential madness is contained in the everyday order of things And seen with the eye of a talented ignoramus the ordinary social stereotypes and customs become preposterous and our regular behavioral patterns turn ludicrous

Summary ã Ferdydurke ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ful Long live its sublime mockery Susan Sontag from the foreword A masterpiece of European modernism Susan Sontag ushers this new translation into print with a strong and useful foreword calling Gombrowicz's tale 'extravagant brilliant disturbing brave funny wonderful' And it is Publishers Weekly Witold Gombrowicz 1904 1969 wrote three other novels Trans Atlantyk Pornografia and Cosmos which together with his plays and his three volume Diary have been translated into than thirty languages. 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

Ferdydurke appeared in Germany without commentary to explain briefly what it is about thus some critics and readers did not know where to beginI think about the basic assumptions of Ferdydurke regarding criticism and I can endorse them without reservation There are enough innocent works that enter life looking as if they did not know that they would be raped by a thousand idiotic assessmentsTo avoid this kind of assessment I decided to let Witold Gombrowicz speak about Ferdydurke himself Everything you ll read or have already read in this review except for this paragraph and the very last one I lifted from his Diary Forgive me WGIn Ferdydurke two loves fight with each other two strivings the striving for maturity and the striving for eternally rejuvenating immaturity This book is the image of the battle for the maturity of someone who is in love with his own immaturityAs long as you understand Ferdydurke as a battle with convention it will trot calmly down the well beaten path but if you understand that man creates himself with another man in the sense of the wildest debauchery Ferdydurke will neigh and leap forward as if you had jabbed it with a spur carrying you off into the realm of the Unpredictable Ferdydurke is a form element than a form conventionI had crossed Ferdydurke out of my life Now I read it again line after line and its words meant nothing to me The nothingness of words The nothingness of ideas problems styles attitudes the nothingness of art Words words wordsFerdydurke is a book that is unusually difficult and what is is misleading and deceptiveI wrote Ferdydurke in the years 1936 37 when no one knew anything about Existentialism In spite of this Ferdydurke is existential to the marrow Critics I will help you in determining why Ferdydurke is existential because man is created by people and because people mutually form themselves This is precisely existence and not essence Ferdydurke is existence in a vacuum that is nothing except existence That is why in this book practically all the basic themes of existentialism play fortissimo becoming creating oneself freedom fear absurdity nothingness with the single difference that in addition to the typical existential spheres of human life like Heidegger s banal and authentic life Kierkegaard s aesthetic ethical and religious life or Jaspers s spheres there is yet another sphere namely the sphere of immaturity The ending of Ferdydurke is not gratuitous I fled my face in my hands I expect the future scientific world to confirm what Ferdydurke proclaims about a distance to form and about not identifying with it Tomorrow s art the art of deformed people will rise under this signIt is not worth carrying on about Ferdydurke which is a circus and not a philosophyflees his face in his hands This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 30 Unported License The Cordax Mondotta The Adventures of Avery Avedaan #1 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.
