In his later years when Andrei Bely was slowly going mad he hacked his original text of Petersburg making it twice shorter and endlessly dryer in order to make it readable for proles I doubt that any proletarian had ever read the novel but somehow this bastardly version had found its way to English translation And only lately the adeuate modern translation of the novel has been published in English Solitary street lamps were metamorphosed into sea creatures with prismatic spines Andrei Bely virtually turns Petersburg into a tenebrous undersea realm and populates it with all sorts of revolutionary reactionary anarchistic deranged regressive and renegade monsters And now as he looked pensively into that boundlessness of mists the man of state suddenly expanded out of the black cube in all directions and soared above it and he desired that the carriage should fly forward that the prospects should fly towards him prospect after prospect that the whole spherical surface of the planet should be gripped by the blackish grey cubes of the houses as by serpentine coils that the whole of the earth sueezed by prospects should intersect the immensity in linear cosmic flight with rectilinear law The book is written in the magnificently burlesue language and it is a kaleidoscope of human whims caprices fixations phobias and ideas

As a result in part of it s history going many years without publication outside of the USSR Andrei Bely s Petersburg first written in 1913 and not translated to English until 1959 is woefully under read It is perhaps most often read nowadays for the praise it received of Vladimir Nabokov who ranked it among Proust s la recherche du temps perdu Joyce s Ulysses and Kafka s Metamorphosis as the twentieth century s greatest novels It is deserving of significant praise though it s ranking of top four for the century bears it tough competition from Woolf James Fitzgerald s The Great Gatsby and Nabokov s own Lolita Despite this considerable competition it belongs on far Top 100 lists than I have seen it on none and for that reason I feel compelled to review it on here to perhaps win over some unbeknownst to themselves Bely fans Perambulatory fiction a tradition which symmetrically begins with Homer s Odyssey and comes to fruition in Joyce s Ulysses and Dubliners and Woolf s Mrs Dalloway has become almost a characteristic of modernist literature though of course it is uite timeless Through literary walks cities unfold Joyce s Dublin Dickins s London Balzac s Paris and Proust s Combray though partially fictional but among these literary vistas ranks the superb portrayal of Bely s Petersburg Petersburg PetersburgSediment of mist you have pursued me too with idle cerebral play you are a cruel hearted tormenter you are a restless ghost for years you used to assail me I would run along your terrible Prospects and my impetus would carry me up on to that cast iron bridge which starts from the edge of the world and leads to the limitless distance beyond the Neva in the green distance of the other world the ghosts of islands and houses rose seducing me with the vain hope that that land was real and not a howling endlessness that drives the pale smoke of clouds out on to the Petersburg streets Hearkening back to epic poets Bely often invokes his muse the very Petersburg of which he writes but she is a shadowy muse the penumbral underside of Enlightenment the sinister apparition of revolution and dischord Also like The Odyssey and other Greek and Roman epics Petersburg utilizes repetitions and distinguishing personal epithets to both set the recursive staging of daily routine in the city and also to establish the unconcern of the city Petersburg with the goings on of its characters and drama Through even the greatest of human follies the city remains immutably remote while also disturbingly human chillingly reactive In addition to the literal characterization of Petersburg there is another remote actor upon the proscenium of Petersburg which is Bely himself or an authorial fiction unto himself Often the story is interjected with an almost post modern self awareness as a novel one which follows the tradition of Thackeray s Vanity Fair which both assures us of the veracity of the story but also draws our attention to its existence as an artifice or work of artWhat might surprise many a reader of modernist fiction is that the story is uite plotted the pace is uite uick We follow the guilt tormented revolutionary Nikolai Apollonovich Ableukov a senator s son in his mad walks along the Neva in his masuerading as a red domino to terrorize his abandoned love Sofya in his sub rosa dealings with shadowy spectors Dudkin and Lippanchenko The tick tock tick of the sardine can bomb which he has agreed to set in his father s room a patricide promise which he is loath to keep but feels he cannot escape But throughout this political intrigue and near parody of Crime and Punishment we are gifted with the little cerebral plays of particularly the father and son Ableukovs the father ever musing on the limits of his mental geometry and the son ever thinking about his hero Kant The novel reads as a intermingling of the creative consciousnesses of father son and authorial ghost This shadow arose by chance in Senator Ableukhov s consciousness receiving there its ephemeral existence but Apollon Apollonovisch s consciousness is a shadow consciousness because he too is possessed of ephemeral existence being the product of the author s imagination needless idle cerebral play And Petersburg is no too serious text the parallels between Bely and Dostoyevsky s respective novels are done so to parodic effect While Raskolnikov is a thinker his crime is only vaguely planned and the the murder of Lizaveta surprises even himself Nikolai s crime is yet to be committed he has killed no one but is burdened with an almost absurd guilt a guilt for uncommitted crime which remains avoidable by simple inaction Further parody is drawn from the too obvious parody on Freud s Oedipus Complex Frued a contemporary of Bely published his Three Essays on Sexuality wherein he laid down much of the foundation for his Oedipal theory in 1905 curiously the same year which begins Petersburg The geographically distant mother whom Nikolai seems to worship the emotionally distant father whom Nikolai seems to hate and Nikolai s apparent love aversion and coy distancing tactics in his relationship with Sofya are laughable and make our guilt racked protagonist the very red domino clown as which he disguises himselfThe language in Petersburg is painted with a Joycean ardor a m lange of the unrestrained logophilia and wordplay of Ulysses and the aesthetic precision and accessibility of Dubliners There is a rhythmic cadence to Bely s novel which is pleasant to the ear and has a distinctly auricular pleasure to it of which I draw no comparison but to poetry a sound distinctly of it s own The novel strikes the perfect tempo both fast paced but also solemn in its comedy and insightful in its absurdity Despite the wordplay and the punning jokes of Senator Apollon Apollonovich we are warned early on that cerebral play is only a mask beneath this mask proceeds the invasion of the brain by forces unknown to us what on the surface may appear to be farce is a mask for something deeper something serious something worth read truth which is a force unknown which covertly invades our brains when we participate in literatureIt was easy to get lost in Petersburg not confused but lost in the very prospects and alley ways diffused into the very city into the very text Bely s is a powerful text which utilizes the over said or obvious as a medium of almost extreme subtlety What does it mean to be included Included in a group in a family in one s own thoughts or in the thoughts of another Nikolai is torn between the desperate need for inclusion but his methods his feverish acceptance of a revolutionary patricide could only achieve him one tenuous inclusion while exiling him from the possibility of many others His relationship with his father is distant and though it manifests itself in apparent disdain there is an element of suppressed tenderness of a desire for love which Nikolai and Apollon cannot verbalize and instead retreat into their idle cerebral play That love which reconciles them is the mutual love for Nikolai s absent mother Anna Petrovna who returns and with her return an unnatural staging of familial happiness Though this contentment remains only a semblance it serves as a final straw for Nikolai who feverishly relents his acceptance of the bomb but no matter the extent of his rummaging search for it he cannot find it Does love conuer all That is neither here nor there in the novel as love is noted mostly by its absence What can be said is that the lack thereof disrupts all denatures the mind and brings reality tumbling through the chaotic abyss of the absurd

Петербург Download ☆ 104 Read & Download Петербург Mais importante romance simbolista russoConsiderado por Vladimir Nabokov como umas das uatro mais importantes obras de ficção do século XXSe Petersburgo é uma obra modernista e realista é também um romance de tradição da tradição de Petersburgo Cada página acha se embebida das tradições acumuladas da história literatura e folclore da cidade Figuras reais e imaginárias Pedro o Grande e vários sucessores; Púchkin seu funcionário e o Cavaleiro de Bronze; capotes e narizes de Gógol; homens supérfluos e Hamlets russos; duplos e demônios; czares assassinos e assassinos de czares; os dezembristas; o Homem do Subterrâneo; Ana K. The twin spires of Time and Light stand out for me on the busy skyline of this phenomenal book Time counts down the narrative while Light provides the special effects that rhythm the ebb and flow of the truly idiosyncratic counting down process Yes ebb and flow is appropriate to mention here We expect Time to move only in one direction and always at the same pace according to the age old rules but Bely s Time strikes right through the rule book It doubles back and when it s not busy reversing it suddenly speeds up in a thunderous wave or even bizarrely slows down to a complete stop The exclamation mark at the end of that sentence is there for than exclamatory purposes Bely uses exclamation marks as if they d just been invented sometimes they even mark pauses especially when the narrative has gone into one of its fast forward modes and the reader is at risk of collapsing from the exhaustion of keeping up Then Bely drops an exclamation mark onto the page followed by an ellipsis or two and some blank space and our hearts return to normal rhythm and we take time to rethink what we ve just read realising that it may only have been an hallucination on the part of a character or even a hallucination of our own When the blank space becomes print again we invariably find the clock has been wound back once so that we are being shown the same scene from a different point of view and what seemed utterly phantasmagorical a few moments before becomes just an ordinary Petersburg night with a few trees tossing about on the city s main thoroughfare the Nevsky Prospect But even a regular windy night can seem bizarre when Bely gives it his Light treatment The sky is often greenish or pewter coloured the Nevsky Prospect is enveloped in a fiery murk street lights are blood red pinpoints the roofs of houses give off a phosphorescent sheen passersby are reduced to shadows while shadows suddenly form themselves into passersby Alongside the oddly ticking Time this playing around with Light leaves us uncertain about what we ve just read Does the crimson sky indicate morning or is it actually evening Is that building really adorned with black lace or is it only the shadow of the trees Did the statue of the famous Bronze Horseman just thunder down from its giant plinth to chase a character through the city as in Pushkin s poem of the same name Or was it a trick of the Light in collusion with some phantom Sound engineer Yes Sound works closely with Light to make us very wary of Petersburg s grey and foggy streets They seem to echo all the time with a ghostly ooo and even when we stop reading we think we can still hear it ooo ooo oooOf course the year is 1905 when revoloootion was in the air and that backdrop is partly responsible for some of the sounds we think we hear as we read such as the whoosh of gravel thrown at a window by a mob or the clicking sound in the corner of a room that could simply be a cockroach or a mouse but could also be something much menacing Then there s the constant whistle of steamboats out on the Neva and the i sound that the wind carries from across Russia the sound of public ire of strikes of picket lines of every Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov marching marching marching Footsteps rhythm the story tatam tam tamtatatam tam tam perhaps while a character thinks about the music of Tchaikovsky s ueen of Spades or on a different page a different character plucks the strings of a guitar bam bam bam strumming out what could be the line of the narrative but then breaking offmid lineThe line of the narrative if it could be traced on paper might follow this odd pattern That graphic representation of a narrative arc was made by Laurence Sterne nearly 200 years before Bely wrote this book but if I ve paused to recall Sterne s Tristram Shandy it s with a dual purpose Both authors play around with Time in their novels pulling it out to an extraordinary degree and both authors also love digressions in Sterne s novel the digressions simply amuse whereas in Bely s they heighten the suspense in a major way and increasingly as the pages turn And while we re talking digressions let me mention another author who plays with Time Dostoyevsky in Crime and Punishment Coincidentally the time span of that novel is the same as Bely s ten days or so Dostoyevsky makes us very aware of Time passing although he specialises not in jumping about in time but in slowing it down recording each second of his character s ten day existence And as I read Bely s Petersburg I was reminded of Dostoyevsky s novel for other reasons besides the treatment of Time Dostoyevsky s main character Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov constantly roams the Nevsky Prospect just as Bely s characters do and Raskolnikov himself possesses traits that mirror those of Bely s two main characters Nicolai Apollonovich Ableukhov and Alexandr Ivanovich Dudkin Like Raskolnikov Ableukhov s intensive course of philosophical studies has confused his mind so much that he finds himself involved in a crime while Bely s second hero Dudkin suffers from hallucinations just as Raskolnikov does Both Dudkin and Raskolnikov live in tiny cupboard like rooms with yellowed wallpaper through which they imagine they are being spied on by malevolent eyes and both eventually commit violent acts one with an axe one with ascissors It s also interesting that in both novels there s an agent provocateur who plays psychological games with the main characters and drives them to a state approaching delirium Had my panic stricken hero been able to take a look at himself from the side at that moment he would have been horrified in the greenish moonlit little cupboard of a room he would have seen himself clutching at his stomach and bawling with effort into the absolute emptiness in front of him his head was thrown right back and the enormous opening of his yelling mouth would have seemed to him a black abyss of non existence but Aleksandr Ivanovich could not jump out of himself and he did not see himselfBut to return to the themes of Time and Light that dominated Bely s book for me perhaps the image I will take with me from the reading experience is not Munch s Scream but the following word picture the Nevsky Prospect is bathed in a fiery crimson glow that might be dawn or might be dusk it is thronging with bowler hats moustaches noses and shoulders noses flowed past in large numbers the auiline nose and the cockerel nose the duck like nose the hen s nose and so on and so on the nose was turned to one side or the nose was not at all turned greenish green pale white and redand shoulders shoulders shoulders flowed past all the shoulders formed a thick mass as black as coal all the shoulders formed a highly viscous and slowly flowing mass This viscous mass snakes along the Prospect day in day out while high above the city the Bronze Horseman leaps forward eternallyAnd now of course I m reading Gogol s Nevsky Prospect in a volume that includes The Nose
