Read ð E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ì Vasily Grossman Vasily Grossman Ì 9 Summary Characters ↠ За правое дело ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub En febrero de 1943 termina la batalla de Stalingrado Vasili Grossman ue ha estado en primera línea como corresponsal emprende su fresco novelístico sobre la contienda Por una causa justa cuya segunda entrega se convertirá en la mundialmente aclamada Vida y destino. It was about 3 years ago that I read Life and Fate At the time I looked for a translation of Stalingrad but the only non Russian language version available seemed to be in Spanish Although I greatly admired Life and Fate I was conscious throughout that I was missing out on the background of the characters Now that I ve read Stalingrad I have the opposite problem When encountering a character I kept trying to recall what happened to them in Life and Fate Sometimes I remembered but plenty of times I didn t I think I ll have to read Life and Fate again to find outThat curiosity alone shows the book is a success in that I care enough about the characters to want to re read the second part It s noticeable though that in both books Grossman doesn t hesitate to kill off his creations Apparently it was suggested he shouldn t do this uite so often but he argued that in the real life war the bombs didn t swerve to avoid likeable personsThere s a huge cast of characters and it s the style of the book to spend several chapters telling the story of one group before then focusing on another The novel therefore switches back and forth between them with sometimes long gaps between each appearance of an individual Sometimes I found it hard to recall a particular backstory and had to refer to a list of principal characters included as an appendix One of Grossman s favourite themes that he continued in Life and Fate was the idea that the war revealed people s true natures A previously shy and diffident person might come to the fore or someone thought to be a misanthrope might show unexpected kindnessThere is one major weakness in the book and that of course is the extent to which it was affected by Stalinist censorship Under duress Grossman had to take out numerous passages and add in others It s often obvious where this has happened and the some of the affected sections make for laboured reading All translations are different from the original novel of course but there are particular issues with this one that are covered in an afterword that is worth reading Essentially there is no definitive version of this novel and the translation presented here is an amalgam of two of the versions that exist I m certainly glad that I ve read the book but the ravages of Soviet censorship mean that it doesn t match the uality of Life and Fate

Read ð E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ì Vasily Grossman Vasily Grossman Ì 9 Summary Characters ↠ За правое дело ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Cuando escribe Grossman es un hombre destruido por la guerra su hijo ha muerto en el frente y su madre ha sido asesinada en el gueto Los personajes principales componen un mosaico de lo ue era la sociedad soviética del momento El fanático Abarchuk el comisario Krím. As noted by the translator in the afterword Grossman envisioned Stalingrad and Life and Fate as one work so a proper evaluation cannot be given until both books have been read That being said there s no denying that Stalingrad in and of itself is a major accomplishment It starts off with Vavilov s beautiful but sad departure from his family as he trudges off to war and then Grossman proceeds to give us scene after scene of vivid imagery Krymov s river crossing with Semyonov stands out as does the fighting at the Railway StationThis is far from a perfect work however Many reviewers have noted the distracting propaganda for the Soviet regime and I couldn t help but notice it as well Stalingrad was initially published while Stalin was still around and was thus heavily edited so it is difficult to determine how much of this propaganda Grossman actually wanted in his novel The translator does a wonderful job of discussing the different versions of Stalingrad and the role those editors played in constructing the novel as it is today It blew my mind that Tolya s chapter was added almost as a throw in during the editing process it s an amazing chapterAs a standalone work I would argue that the cast of characters in Stalingrad is far too large Without the list of characters at the back of the book I would have been hard pressed to keep track of who is who Grossman devotes over 600 pages to their introduction and backstories before we even really dive in to the battle of Stalingrad Despite the page count dedicated to building these characters the book would have been better served with a smaller cast that would allow the reader to be emotionally invested in their story When soldier XYZ was killed in a beautifully rendered scene I had to pause and flip to the character list to remind myself why I should be so distraught at his death Many of Grossman s characters simply disappear without resolution almost as if the many pages we spent with them were nothing than a long winded tangent to the main story I am sure many of these characters will resurface in Life and Fate but it is a little frustrating to have so many memorable characters disappear like an afterthought Having said all of that I am sure Life and Fate will bring all these characters back into the fold throw my complaints back in my face and make this review look stupid I look forward to looking stupidA high four stars Excellent but not the masterpiece it is claimed to be At least not until I read Life and Fate anyway

Vasily Grossman Ì 9 Summary

Read ð E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ì Vasily Grossman Vasily Grossman Ì 9 Summary Characters ↠ За правое дело ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ov el viejo marxista Mostovskói el científico Shtrum y Aleksandra Sháposhnikova cuya vitalidad triunfará sobre el mal y la muerte se interrogan acerca de la viabilidad del comunismo y el porué del fascismo mientras luchan por sobrevivir a los horrores de la guerr. With Life and Fate lingering on my tbr for far too long this was an automatic must read when published in English for the first time It s a text with a complicated history and gestation so it s well worth reading the introduction and afterword to understand what it is exactly that we re reading here In some ways this is a magnificent failure as a novel self consciously locating itself against War and Peace it offers a panorama of Soviet life leading up to and during the battle for Stalingrad Central is the extended Shaposhnikov family their friends and lovers But we flit between multiple character PoVs and pan in and out as Grossman sees fit sometimes we re deep inside someone s personal life then we retreat and don t return to that character again The canvas and character list is vast and as is the case in Tolstoy many are mere walk on characters so I wouldn t agonise too much about who is who Their brief page life is important their name isn t always Grossman s own viewpoint varies at some points he s a journalist chronicling the meetings between Hitler and his ministers for example at others he s pure novelist embedded with his fictional creations and writing in extended flashbacks to give them a personal history to which we are privy Then again an important character may die and we re barely given any reaction Most disconcerting is the lack of a defined story arc the battle for Stalingrad is clearly central but the pace of the novel is leisurely and there s no ending the battle is still raging the novel just finishes Of course we know the story continues with many of the same characters and an enlarged canvas in Life and Fate but this almost feels like a parallel text rather than a preuel We know that this was a novel that had a problematic relationship with the Soviet authorities and the censors but really it s hard to see why Grossman was a positive supporter of the Revolution and an rabid opponent of Hitler and fascism not least because he was Jewish and both emotions come through strongly Stalingrad was of course a turning point of the war and a significant achievement that marked the Russian psyche It s fascinating to witness an almost contemporary view of Stalin s war broadcasts Hitler s cabinet and their plans Above all what I loved about this book is the way it pays homage to human ideals this war is terrible the numbers of dead are exhausting yet somehow there s a kind of nobility that permeates the souls of these Russians as they resist the German onslaught fighting with courage and a clear sightedness for something bigger than the lone individual
