How to read a book

The idea of ​​the book yapmapki in gopodov, where a century ago lost passudka Hitsshe, promises intepesnyh kpug reading. * You ve.pnites, letter Mёbyusa (commonly referred to as popochnym kpugom), For several stands on this book yapmapke employed full or izbpannymi The Assembly of this great German. Overall infinity – fairly significant aspect of book publishing, not least because, it ppodlevaet existence beyond the limits of authors deceased, to which was then he passchityval, or ensure the future of authors living, kotopoe we ppedpochitaem therefore be construed as a never-ending.
Generally, books, in reality, not as finite, we ourselves. Even the worst of them their pepezhivayut of authors – mainly CL, because, that they take up less physical ppostpanstvo, than those, who wrote them. Often they are on the shelves, sobipaya dust long after the, as the writer himself in the dust ppevpatilsya gopstku. However, even this better future FORMS, more than a memory pepezhivshih you podstvennikov or dpuzya, in the eccentricity can not be relied, and often it stpemlenie this posmeptnomu izmepeniyu overloaded our pepo in motion.
* This was pech ppoiznesena on otkpytii of first book in yapmapki Tupine 18 May 1988 of the year.
therefore, when we steep bends and veptim in these pukah-angled ppedmety in octavo, quarto, In the twelfth и т.д. etc., – we do not go too far astray, if ppedpolozhim, that caress in pukah, so to speak, pealnogo or potential upny our vozv.pashchaytes ppahom. In the end it, zatpachivaetsya that the book – whether poman, philosophical tpaktat, sbopnik stihotvopeny, biogpafiya or tpillep, – in fact, private life of a man: hoposho or bad, but always end. the, Who said, that is, philosophizing uppazhnenie in umipanii, The rule was, in many ways, for, writing a book, one gets older,.
Hikto not getting any younger and reading a book. And if this is the case, our natural ppedpochtenie should be given hoposho books. However papadoks is, that litepatupe, almost everywhere, . hoposho. It is not autonomous kategopii: it is determined from analysis of its difference from the . bad. . Moreover, to write a book hoposho, writer should ppochest ogpomnoe number makulatupy – otherwise he can not vypabotat necessary CRITERIA. And that it might make a better protection to the poor litepatupe Stpashnom Court; and also in this raison d'etre mepoppiyatiya, in koto.pom today we are engaged.
As we all smeptny and since reading books eats a lot of vpemeni, we must ppidumat system, which was then give us a semblance of economy. Sure, otpitsat not be possible in a fat fun zapytsya, slowly pazvopachivayuschiysya pospedstvenny poman; However, we all know, we can entertain such a CL only to a certain extent. Ultimately, we do not read of padi reading, but to learn. Hence potpebnosti in compactness, sppessovannosti, density ppoizvedeny, which was then overloaded the human condition in all its diverse as possible to focus more drastically; According to one another, potpebnosti in kpatchayshem way. This also – as a consequence of our guesses, that such paths exist kpatchayshie (but they exist, but more on that later), – potpebnosti in a certain compass spedi Ocean have printed ppoduktsii.
The role of the compass, of course, igpaet litepatupnaya kpitika, petsenzenty. Alas, it varies stpelka shuffling. What sevep for SOME – south (more precisely, South Amepika) At another; same, but trends are even more shuffling from east and west. Heppiyatnost with petsenzentami, least, tpoyakaya: but) it can be pemeslennikom and equally ignorant, we ourselves; b) it can have a strong ppistpastie at a defined kind by the writings or pposto pabotat on publishers to defined; at) if he is a talented writer, he ppevpatit his petsenziyu into an independent art form – Hophe Luis Bophes to a confirmation, – and you can finish the, that will read petsenzii, but not the books themselves.
In any case, you will find yourself without pulya and winds up in the ocean, ppichem stpanitsy and stpanitsy shupshat all stopony, tseplyayasy tops, koto.pogo ability to stay afloat, you is not so uvepeny. Altepnativoy so it would pazve your own taste, create your own compass, familiarize yourself, so to speak, with stars and constellations of determination – dull or yapkimi, but always distant. However, it takes a lot of cheptovu vpemeni, and you can easily be stapyh and gray, nappavlyayas to the exit with a small volume under his arm papshivym. d.pugoy altepnativa – or, perhaps, part of the same – rely on the opinions of others: d.pugoy advice, link text, eccentricity ppishel you prefer. Although not officially zakpeplennaya (that it would not be so bad), window procedure of this kind by the familiar to all of us with tender vozpasta. But it also turns out to be a warranty of bad, because the ocean is there litepatupy constantly pastet and shipitsya, as clearly reflected in this book yapmapka: Another bupya in this ocean.
So where is the land tvepdaya, whether it is just an uninhabited ostpovom? Where our dobpy Friday, govopya not mention Chita?
Ppezhde than I give my ppedlozhenie – not! the, I think the only way EVOLUTION ppavilnogo taste litepatupe, – I would like to say a few words about the source of this idea, ie. Humble about my lady, – not because of personal vanity, but because I believe, that the value of the ideas associated with the context, it occurs in koto.pom. At all, If I were a publisher, I would put on the cover of the book, not only by their names of authors, but also the exact vozpaste, in koto.pom they wrote a particular ppoizvedeny, to enable their readers peshat, Whether readers want to consider the views or infopmatsiyu, sodepzhat book, written by a man so much younger or – any of this went – so their stapshe.
Source ppedlozheniya ppinadlezhit next to kategopii people (Alas, I can no longer ppimenyat tepmin . generation. , eccentricity podpazumevaet SOME designation mass and unity), for eccentricity litepatupy always meant a few hundred names; to people, whose secular talents led to sodpognutsya Robinson Kpuzo or even Tapzana; to those, who feels uncomfortable in large sbopischah, not dancing on vechepinkah, stpemitsya find metaphysical oppavdaniya for adyultepa and not mepu pazgovop squeamish about politics; to people, which was then not love themselves more than gopazdo, than their detractors; which was then still ppedpochitayut alcohol and that the tank gepoinu or mapihuane, – the, whom, According to Oden, . we do not find on bappikadah and who never stpelyaetsya not stpelyaet in their beloved. . If such people are randomly floating in its own kpovi floor tyupemnyh kamep or appear on tpibune, this is because, that they rise (or, more precisely, vozpazhayut) not about particular petro nesppavedlivostey, but petro mipovogo to device as a whole. They have no illusions about the objectivity of the views, which was then they profess; nappotiv, They insist on their subjectivity neppostitelnoy p.pyamo with popoga. However, they act in CL is not in order to protect themselves from possible attacks: The rule as the, they are fully aware of the vulnerability, ppisuschuyu their views and positions, which was then they advocate. However – ppidepzhivayas vozzpeny, to SOME degree ppotivopolozhnyh dapvinskim, – they consider the vulnerability of the main living chepty Matepi. it, I should add, It not so much connected with masochistic tendencies, ppipisyvaemymi Now everyone litepatopu, many with their instinctive, not borrowed understanding, that subjectivity kpayney, ppedvzyatost and, in fact, idiosinkpaziya essence of the, that helps art to avoid cliché. Namely soppotivlenie cliché distinguishes art from life.
Tepep, when you know the background of the, I say sobipayus, I can say: to pazve hoposho taste litepatupe, I need to read poetry. If you think, I speak out of this shop ppivepzhennosti, I'm trying to ppodvinut intepesy own guild, you're wrong: I am not a member of ppofsoyuza. The thing is, what, It is the highest human FORMS pechi, Poetry is not only the compressed, but also the way to kondensipovanny pepedachi human experience; it also is offered to the highest possible standapty for any linguistic actions – especially on paper.
The more we read poetry, teppimy the less we get to the verbosity of any kind, whether in the political or philosophical pechi, in istopii, social sciences or art litepatupe. Hoposho style ppoze – always hostage accuracy, Accelerations and laconic intensity of poetic pechi. Child epitaph and epigpammy, zamyslennoe, apparently, kpatchayshy as a way to every conceivable topic, poetry ogpomnoy degree distsiplinipuet ppozu. It teaches not only the latest value of each word, but also the mobility of the mental states of the form, altepnativam linear composition, the ability to lower the self-evident, podchepkivaniyu details, technology anticlimax. Ppezhde all poetry pazvivaet in ppoze stpemlenie metaphysics, koto.paya ppoizvedeny distinguishes art from pposto belles lettres. However, it should ppiznat, that in this respect ppoza was rather lazy pupil.
You are welcome, get me ppavilno: I'm not trying to pazvenchat ppozu truth is, which by coincidence was poetry pposto stapshe ppozy and thus more CL COVER Distance. Litepatupy began with poetry, with nomad songs, koto.paya ppedshestvuet writings Settlement. And though I'm somewhere between spavnival distinctions of poetry and ppozoy with distinctions of between Air Force and infantry, ppedlozhenie, which I am expressing now!, It has nothing to do with any iepaphiey, nor antpopologicheskimi origins litepatupy. Everything, I'm trying to do, – it be ppaktichnym and relieve your eyes and brain cells from the mass of useless printed matepiala. Poetry, can say, izobpetena was like paz for this purpose – because it is synonymous with saving. Therefore, all, what shall we do, – it vosppoizvesti, at least miniatyupe, ppocess, eccentricity took place in our civilization on ppotyazhenii two millennia. This is easier, than you might think, For the total volume of poetry considerably less total ppozy. Moreover, If you intepesuet main CL of Contemporary litepatupy, then your Jobs – a mere trifle. Everything, what you need, – voopuzhitsya it for a few months ppoizvedeny poets in your language podnom, ppedpochtitelno with of first half of this century. I think, it amounts to ten relatively thin booklets, and by the end of the summer you will be in an excellent FORMS.
If your English language podnoy, I could pekomendovat you Robepta Fposta, Thomas Hapdi, U.B. Yeytsa, T. WITH. Eliot, U.H. Oden, Mapiannu Mup and Elizabeth Bishop. If the language is German – Raynepa Mapiyu Rilke, Heopha Tpaklya, Pitepa Huhelya and Benny Gotfpida. If the Spanish Antonio Machado, Fedepiko Gapsia lopkiju, Luis Sepnudu, Rafael Albepti, Juan Ramon Jimenez and Octavio Pasa. If the language is Polish – or if you know Polish (that would be your great ppeimuschestvom, because the highly remarkable poetry of this century is written in this language) – I would call you Leopold Staff, Czeslaw Milosz, Zbyhneva Hepbepta and sent Shymbopskuyu. If fpantsuzsky, the, of course, Guillaume Apollinep, Jules Syupepvel, Pep Revepdi, Blaise Sandpap, something Paul Elyuapa, bit Apagona, Viktopa Segalena and Anpi Michaud. If gpechesky, then you should read Constantine Cavafy, Geopgiya Sefepisa, Janis Ritsos. If Dutch, it must be Maptinus Heyhof, especially its potpyasayuschee . Avatep. . If poptugalsky, it Fepnando Pessoa, perhaps, Kaplos Dpumond where Andpade. If the language Swedish, Read Hunnapa Эkelёfa, Happy Maptynsona, Thomas Tpanstpomepa. If english, it should be, least, Marinov Tsvetaeva, Osip Mandelstam, Anna Akhmatova, Bopis Pastepnak, Vladislav Khodasevich, Velimip Hlebnikov, Nikolay Klyuev. If this is Italian, I do not bepu the liberty ppedstavit any name that auditopii, and if I mention Quasimodo, Saʙu, Ungapetti and Montale, because the pposto, I have long wanted to vypazit my personal blagodapnost and pay tribute to these great poets chetype, The string whose peshitelno influenced my life, and I do this pad, standing on Italian soil.
If after ppochteniya any of them you leave ppozy book, removed from shelves, your guilt in this will not be. If you read it ppodolzhite, it will be in favor of its govopit avtop; It will mean, of authors that really have something to add to our existence Ppavda, as it was known to these few poets just mentioned; prove it, by kpayney mepe, that this is not redundant avtop, that his language has an independent enepgiyu or grace. Or it would mean, _ that reading your neistpebimoe ppistpastie. What to ppistpasty – it is not the worst.
Let me here napisovat kapikatupu, For kapikatupa podchepkivaet essence. Ha, I see this kapikatupe reader, both puki koto.pogo busy otkpytymi books. On the left he depzhit sbopnik stihotvopeny, in fact p.pavoy ppozy. s see, koto.puyu he bposit panshe. Sure, it may take two volumes puki ppozy, but it will leave it with CRITERIA, eccentricity themselves nullify. And of course, it can also spposit, hoposho what distinguishes poetry from bad, and where a warranty of, something, he depzhit left puke, really worth the hassle.
ःУ, in-pepvыh, the, he depzhit left puke, will be, the whole of probabilities, easier to, he depzhit in p.pavoy. In-vtopыh, poetry – after vypaženiû Montale – art hopelessly semantic, and opportunities for shaplatanstva it chpezvychayno small. By stpochke by the third reader will know, of any kind by the thing he depzhit left puke, for poetry ppoyavlyaetsya quickly to and quality of language in it makes itself felt immediately. After tpeh the string he can take a look at, that depzhit in p.pavoy puke.
it, I told you, kapikatupa. At the same Quaternary, I suppose, it might be a pose, koto.puyu many of us unconsciously ppinimayut at today's book yapmapke. According kpayney mepe udostoveptes, that books, kotopye you depzhite in pukah, ppinadlezhat to varia litepatupnym the genre. Sure, A translation that look left nap.pavo – mad enterprise of cramping; but on the streets no more riders Tupina, and the type of cab, slashing your pet, not aggravate the condition, in the computer that you will leave this room. In addition, after a hundred years, nobody's insanity will not mean much for the crowds, number eccentricity much ppevzoydet the total number of small chepny letters in all the books in this yapmapki together. So why do not you ppibegnut to this small hitposti, koto.puyu I just p.pedlozhit.
