He naked island of Goli Otok And it is the many partisans prisoners sailors and stowaways who recount the perils of travel war and adventureIn a shifting choral monologue part confession part psychiatric session a man recounts invents falsifies hides screams out his life which has passed through the horrors the hop. Salvatore Cippico tells his life of Italian Australian partisan from the early 20th century to the 90s His ideas ground by History and his body crushed by the torturers he ends up old and insane in a psychiatric hospital One lost battle after the other he tells his doctor how he was sent to Dachau because he was communist and then to a concentration camp in Yugoslavia because he was on Stalin s side when the alliance with Tito was broken Of his love for figureheads and how they remember him of Maria that he loved and abandoned when the Party asked him to do so Of how once in his life he was among the torturers too when the communists slaughtered the anarchists during the civil war in SpainBut his story has to be disentangled from his delirium where he is also Jorgen Jorgensen a Danish adventurer that was king of Islands for two weeks and prisoner for most of the rest of his life and finally one of the chiefs of the extermination of the aboriginal Australians And where he is also Jason who brings back the golden Fleece reddened by the blood of his sailors and of his enemies and many The whole novel is written as the stream of consciousness of Cippico Magris hides in it passages of great literature and reflections on the eternal war between the needs of History and those of individuals It is hard not to be sucked into the vortex of the main character s thoughts and their uick pace this makes the book uite a difficult read Take your time to linger over the most intense passages

Alla cieca

Es and the revolutions of the last century and through widely different lands and seasHailed as a masterpiece upon its initial publication in Italy Blindly is a novel of highly original poetic intensity a Jacob's Ladder reversed to descend into the nether regions of history and in particular of the twentieth centur. An old man apparently in a psychiatric clinic tells about his life he was a member of the Italian communist party fought in the Spanish civil war got arrested at Dachau then in a camp in Yugoslavia etcAt the same time he also tells about his previous life in the XIX century as a sailor briefly king of Iceland worker in Australia according to the narrator he was reborn along the wayInteresting thing not only he treats this fact as very normal a couple of times he says decisions he made at the XIX century where based in his experiences of the XX centuryThis is a winding book very well written uite poetic You get the whole story in the first chapters and then the narrator will become specific about each event We have many less known historic subjects The colonization of Australia concentration camps in Yugoslavia for the enemies of Tito Iceland and its relations with England and Denmark etc A lot of stuff about navigation Of course everything about the communist party and how the left fought between them anarchists vs socialists vs communists got my attention but history of Australia and Iceland are not things I care too much about but they are interesting The book evidently was written by a professor by someone who did a lot of researchThe main problem is that in my opinion it lacks a bit of heart Instead of the character acting he is uite passive it s like history is acting upon him This is intentional I believe the nautical terms and analogies abound and with Jason and the golden fleece and in fact the character seems like a man who got into a ship which carries him to another place Most everything he lives is because someone else has arrested himsent him here or thereetcIn short very well written but too much research If this were a song insted of a book I would say the musician was too technical

    Marvellous writing — each chapter can be read as a prose poem in a long cycle rather than as a chapter in a novel — but what was the book's point?
