Podoboji (Edice Jadra)

Podoboji (Edice Jadra) The first third of this book thrilled me It read as an allegory for the history of the Czech nation, seeking to encompass the entire history, not just Hapsburg rule, The First Republic, Communism, or the Velvet Revolution The second third of this book for me grew tiresome Perhaps it was that my understanding of Czech History has some bare spots and I didn t connect the author s writing and intent, Perhaps it was that as an allegory every action and character has a signifying weight and, even, a predestiny Both the writing and the story seemed to struggle under the details and repetition of the characters routines and actions.I was refreshed for the final third of the book by the idea that, with the help of google, I could self annotate Hodrov s writing and familiarize myself with the pieces of Czech history I ve missed, and the parts of Prague that I haven t had time enough to visit and explore.I can see myself reading this book again, perhaps while using an air ticket to The Czech Republic as a bookmark, perhaps while in Prague, exploring Ol any cemetery. Through Playful Poetic Prose, Imaginatively Blending Historical And Cultural Motifs With Autobiographical Moments, Daniela Hodrov Shares Her Unique Perception Of Prague A Kingdom Of Souls Is The First Volume Of This Author S Literary Journey An Unusual Quest For Self, For One S Place In Life And In The World, A World That For Hodrov Is Embodied In Prague From The Introduction By Elena Sokol, Professor Emerita Of Russian Studies At The College Of Wooster, Ohio My review Reviewed by Magical realism I don t know It rambled on a bit and covered a lot of ground both temporally and spatially, but I found nothing to hang on to Rather like a handful of sand Perhaps that was the intention, since the kingdom of souls is after all the realm of the dead Well written for all that. So complicated and difficult to read, liked the language, but failed to understand the story and the Big Idea of this rather pretentious novel A picture of families, the city of Prague and the twofold nature of all things Scenes are like mosaics and as you read through the stories it slowly draws a complex web of relationship Relationships which do not end with death Hodrova writes in metaphors and creates mystical creatures and happenings where the unbearable happens His magical realist style tells tales of sadness, loneliness and doubt which flows through fathers sons, and daughters Everyone and everything have its own voice and opinion in Hodrova s novel as they tell and show all the important moments of the XX century Prague An Eastern European family novel, which deals with the history of a nation, of a family and the magic which life and life after death is.
