Free read Í Ferdydurke ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook In this bitterly funny novel by the renowned Polish author Witold Gombrowicz a writer finds himself tossed into a chaotic world of schoolboys by a diabolical professor who wishes to reduce him to childishness Originally published in Poland in 1937 Ferdydurke became an instant literary sensation and catapulted the young author to fame Deemed scandalous and subversive by Nazis Stalinists and the Polish Communist regime in turn the novel as well as all of Gombrowicz's other works was officia. Ferdydurke is some sort of abracadabra and the novel can be defined as an absurdist abstraction Mankind is accursed because our existence on this earth does not tolerate any well defined and stable hierarchy everything continually flows spills over moves on everyone must be aware of and be judged by everyone else and the opinions that the ignorant dull and slow witted hold about us are no less important than the opinions of the bright the enlightened the refined This is because man is profoundly dependent on the reflection of himself in another man s soul be it even the soul of an idiot I absolutely disagree with my fellow writers who treat the opinions of the dull witted with an aristocratic haughtiness and declare odi profanum vulgus What a cheap and simplistic way of avoiding reality what a shoddy escape into specious loftiness I maintain on the contrary that the dull and narrow minded they are the urgent and compelling are their opinions just as an ill fitting shoe hurts us than a well fitting one And the judgments of the oafs prevail and Ferdydurke is the world seen through the eyes of idiots Normality is a tightrope walker above the abyss of abnormality How much potential madness is contained in the everyday order of things And seen with the eye of a talented ignoramus the ordinary social stereotypes and customs become preposterous and our regular behavioral patterns turn ludicrous

Free read Í Ferdydurke ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Lly banned in Poland for decades It has nonetheless remained one of the most influential works of twentieth century European literature Ferdydurke is translated here directly from the Polish for the first time Danuta Borchardt deftly captures Gombrowicz's playful and idiosyncratic style and she allows English speakers to experience fully the masterpiece of a writer whom Milan Kundera describes as one of the great novelists of our century Extravagant brilliant disturbing brave funny wonder. I didn t like this book I didn t hate it either If I could have given it two and a half stars I would have I liked the premise Parts of it were interesting and I think I got what he was doing with the work but it just never gelled for me Maybe if I had read it straight through without taking a bit of a break with reading a history book I might have enjoyed it but by about page 200 the whole book felt like work For example I was on the bus and I had the choice between reading this book or starting straight ahead at the darkness through the tinted windows only slightly broken up by passing street lights that illuminated almost nothing for me and I choose the staring straight ahead after reading half a page Reading doesn t usually feel like work to me so that s got to say something Maybe I was just in a staring mood that day Actually fuck it any book that makes me want to stare at nothing rather than read it deserves two stars I will not let myself be pushed around the opinions of people John Fuckdike who tell me the book is a late modernism masterpiece This book is a failure a good idea and some interesting moments but overall the book never lives up to it s potential and the reader well that would be me thinks Rabbit Updike is a fucking idiot who once again sounds like a paid spokesperson for a book instead of an honest critic or someone with an honest opinion Ok I ve said it I don t like this book and I don t like John Updike and it wasn t until I started writing this review that I even noticed he had written the blurb on the back and yes that might have given me the conviction to give this book two stars instead of three Happy now Updike Some insignificant asshole on the internet took a star away from a book you liked because his dislike of you overrode his feeling that a supposed classic couldn t just get two stars and there must be some kind of failure on his part for not getting it Now I know though that it s ok I know you probably only liked it because there are lots of ass references and you re a dirty fucking pervert who has only been able to write anything by ripping off other people Fuck you Updike
