Bonsái AUTHOR Alejandro Zambra

Free read Ó Bonsái AUTHOR Alejandro Zambra ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ambra en este libro ue del mismo modo ue un bonsái no es un árbol más ue una novela corta o un relato largo es una novela resumen o justamente una novela bonsái Bonsái supone el brillante debut narrativo del joven chileno Alejandro Zambra poeta y crítico literario. A bonsai has to be nurtured and truly loved or else it will die likewise unless one does the same thing with human love that will also dieThis is a philosophical thought provoking novella so I have a tautology here but I like it even though it s extraneous as it adds necessary substance to the wording and I was charmed and delighted by it allThis is not really a novella but a short story and it can be read in little than an hour Nevertheless in spite of its brevity it runs the gamut of your average novel of say 250000 words in its intensity soul and concentrated structure This is a remarkable feat for an author to achieve especially with the hidden layers being gradually revealed within the fabric of this remarkable book I m not at all surprised that it was so acclaimed in Chile especially being a debut novelI was intrigued I must confess to see that it was translated by Carolina de Robertis who although raised in England Switzerland and California had Uruguayan parents Surely it would have been better with a Chilean translator who would know all the literary nuances relating to the language of that countryAlejandro Zambra has excelled as a master of literary contradictions The story is spell binding He has achieved this by a literary style that appears simple but brings to life the average story of two students Julio and Emilia who become lovers On the surface this is a couple who like each other and appreciate their sexual romps But there s something extra in the mix that is also rather different about them they are both very literary in the way in which they love and devour their books and they have an unusual symbiotic relationship That on the surface is a good thing but when they begin reading aloud their various works to each other an imperceptible change is noticed and the cracks begin to appear in their love for one another They read fragments of Nietzche and Emile Cioran Borges Bioy CXasares and Silvina Ocampo and then they arrive at Tantalia a short story by Macedonioi Fernandez that affected them profoundly Tantalia is the story of a couple that decides to buy a small plant the implication here is that this is the bonsai mentioned here and keep it as a symbol of the love that unites them They realize too late that if the plant dies the love that unites them will die with it And as the love that unites them is immense and they are not willing to sacrifice it for any reason they decide to lose the little plant in a multitude of identical little plants Later comes the despair then misfortune of knowing they will never be able to find it Then we go into the role play of Emma in Madame Bovary Both refused to play Charles but their good sex life continues There is this wonderful Spanish verb used follar and I wonder if the translator has indeed translated it correctly I don t like the English term used beginning with s but perhaps that was the only choice Our exuberant couple then cruised through Chekhov Kafka but at this stage the damage had already been created within the labyrinth of their perfect loveI think that their relationship should have stopped here whilst it was still on a high here but then Proust raises his ugly head and then deception enters with a vengeance Both had lied by saying that they had read Proust ie la recherche du temps perdu or Remembrance of Things Past a novel in seven volumes You see they hadn t read Proust before because they had a big secret in that they had never read any of his novels and both insisted that this was a reread That s a trifle complicated surely They stopped on page 372 of Swann s Way It was the following sentence that was the reason Knowledge of a thing cannot impede it but at least we have the things we discover if not in our hands at least in thought and there they are at our disposal which inspires us to the illusory hope of enjoying a kind of dominion over them What is so delightful about this book are the continuous contradictions and then you begin to wonder about the ending It isn t until Mari enters the euation that you can even remotely guess the outcome To see the comparisons between Madrid Spain and Chile also adds an extra dimension to this storyThe ending was perfect for me There couldn t have been any other and it was glorious in its mysteryI read this short story after a very annoying day proofreading a translation by a very bad translator I had been offered the translation but it would have taken forever and so I opted for the proofreading and when I found I had had to or less to re translate it I was livid Because of this I was not in the right frame of mind and also troubled with my own interpretation of the book So I had to re set the scene and reread the book Now how would I play that Would enlightenment occur I hoped so I was prepared to abandon it I must confess There are so many other delicious books around to readI went to bed and woke up at 4 am It was a clear sky and the stars were twinkling away as is their want I returned to my warm comforting bed and woke up again at 7 am The normal dawn chorus had been replaced bya cacophony of jays and crows Where was my beautiful and normal dawn chorus The darkness was beginning to disappear and so I sat on the terrace with a black coffee and a tablespoon of honey I watched the dazzling sun come up and I was soon on my reread Chlo was out sniffing in the garden and then she disappeared down the hill after some mysterious creature I looked again at this short story and the scales fell from my eyes and I could finally understand this sparkling diamond of a bookIt is nevertheless difficult to review this book I found it enthralling but it has such a depth to it that it is difficult to state exactly what I feel Nevertheless how Alejandro Zambra managed to write such an amazing book for a debut novel amazes me Bravo that s all I can possibly saySo as a result I m looking for another fix by this wonderful author and I already have my eyes set on his most recent book Great Powers Small Wars to be nurtured and A Bloodless Victory The Battle of New Orleans in History and Memory truly loved or else it will die likewise unless one does Epiphany the same Unplanned Parenthood thing with human love The Cloak of Aphrodite that will also dieThis is a philosophical Russian Eurasianism An Ideology of Empire thought provoking novella so I have a Betsy Bonaparte tautology here but I like it even American Hieroglyphics The Symbol of the Egyptian Hieroglyphics in the American Renaissance though it s extraneous as it adds necessary substance Betsy Bonaparte The Belle Of Balti the wording and I was charmed and delighted by it allThis is not really a novella but a short story and it can be read in
