Ismail Kadare 35432
Agamemnon's Daughter
Canongate, 2007. Gekartonneerd met stofomslag. Pp: 226. In this spellbinding novel, written in Albania and smuggled into France a few pages at a time in the 1980s, Ismail Kadare denounces with rare force the machinery of a dictatorial regime, drawing us back to the ancient roots of tyranny in Western Civilization. During the waning years of Communism, a young worker for the Albanian state-controlled media agency narrates the story of his ill-fated love for the daughter of a high-ranking official. When he witness the ghostly image of Agamemnon-the Ancient Greek king who sacrificed his own daughter for reasons of State-on the reviewing stand during a May Day celebration, he begins to suspect the full catastrophe of his devotion. Also included are "The Blinding Order," a parable of the Ottoman Empire about the uses of terror in authoritarian regimes, and "The Great Wall," a chilling duet between a Chinese official and a soldier in the invading army of the Tamerlane.

Le colonel von Schwabe retrouve avec effusion son ex-condisciple qui l'invite à dîner. Or, des maquisards ouvrent le feu sur l'avant-garde des blindés allemands. En représailles, les nazis raflent dans le même temps des otages parmi les habitants de la cité.

Ismail Kadare 35432
The Doll
Penguin Random House, 2021. Paperback. Pp: 176. She surrendered the freedom and authority of a mother, in short, turned herself into a doll, to give me all possible liberty as a human being, in a world where freedom was so rare and hard to find, like crusts of rationed bread, which she broke off from her own small portion and secretly gave to me. At the centre of young Ismail's world is the enigmatic figure of the Doll naive and unchanging, she appears lost in her husband's great stone house and is constantly at odds with her wise and thin-lipped mother-in-law. As her son grows, his writing career flourishes, he uses words she doesn't understand, publishes radical poetry and falls in love outside of marriage. Ismail seems to be renouncing everything his mother embodies of old-world Gjirokastra. Most of all, the Doll fears that one day her intellectual, free-thinking son will exchange her for a better mother. In this singular, autobiographical novel, dedicated to the memory of his mother, writer Ismail Kadare circles back to his childhood in Communist era Albania and to his first aspirations to write a novel. The Doll is a delicate and disarming tale of home and creative longing, of personal and political freedom, told in haunting, lyrical prose. ISBN: 9781784709327. Cond./Kwaliteit: Goed.

Ismail Kadare 35432
The File on H.
Arcade Pub. 1998. Gekartonneerd met stofomslag. Pp: 202. In the mid 1930s, two young Irish-American scholars voyage to the Albanian highlands with an early model of a marvelous invention, the tape recorder, in hand. Their mission? To discover how Homer could have composed works as brilliant and as long as the Iliad and the Odyssey without ever writing them down. The answer, they think, can be found only in Albania, the last remaining natural habitat of the oral epic.But immediately on their arrival the scholars' seemingly arcane research puts them at the center of ethnic strife in the Balkans. Mistaken for foreign spies, they are placed under the surveillance of a nearsighted informer with a prodigious gift for reproducing conversations he has overheard. He is soon generating a stream of floridly written reports about the visitors' puzzling activities. News of their presence in the provincial town of N- sets gossip to flying, and while the town's governor speculates on their imminent capture, his pretty wife, from her bath, plots her delivery from a marital ennui worthy of Madame Bovary. Research and intrigue proceed apace, but it isn't until a fierce-eyed monk from the Serbian side of the mountains makes his appearance that the scholars glimpse the full political import of their search for the key to the Homeric question.

Ismail Kadare 35432
Onenigheid aan de top
Querido. Hardback. Pp: 208. In juni 1934 belde Jozef Stalin de schrijver Boris Pasternak. Het gesprek tussen de twee reuzen aan de top (de ene in politiek, de andere in literair opzicht) duurde niet langer dan drie à vier minuten, maar kreeg daarna mythische proporties. In de maalstroom van de geschiedenis van de Sovjet-Unie bood het ruimte aan allerlei geruchten en interpretaties. Zou Pasternak, die later beroemd werd met Dokter Zjivago, onvoldoende voor de dichter Osip Mandelsjtam zijn opgekomen en hem misschien hebben verraden? Feit is dat Mandelsjtam werd gearresteerd en verbannen. Als een rechercheur die de sleutel tot het raadsel maar niet kan vinden, pluist Ismail Kadare alle versies van het legendarische gesprek uit. Tegelijk belicht hij niet alleen zijn eigen werk ten tijde van dictator Hoxha, maar ook de complexe relatie tussen een schrijver, waar ook ter wereld, en een tiranniek regime. ISBN: 9789021468228.

Ismail Kadare 35432
The Traitor's Niche
Random House UK Ltd, 2017. Gekartonneerd met stofomslag. Pp: 199. At the heart of the Ottoman Empire, in the main square of Constantinople, a niche is carved into ancient stone. Here, the sultan displays the severed heads of his adversaries. People flock to see the latest head and gossip about the state of the empire: the province of Albania is demanding independence again, and the niche awaits a new trophy. Tundj Hata, the imperial courier, is charged with transporting heads to the capital - a task he relishes and performs with fervour. But as he travels through obscure and impoverished territories, he makes money from illicit side-shows, offering villagers the spectacle of death. The head of the rebellious Albanian governor would fetch a very high price. The Traitor's Niche is a surreal tale of rebellion and tyranny, in a land where armies carry scarecrows, state officials ban entire languages, and the act of forgetting is more complicated than remembering.
