By Ivo Andric
A pleasant sequence of news through Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andric. As in lots of brief tale collections from writers with a countrywide id, the land itself is a personality woven during the anthology. Enjoy!
Although Ivo Andric, born in 1892, was once the modern of many of the eu modernists of this century, his feeling for language and folks is going again to an older culture. His tales often take the shape of parables more desirable with naturalist aspect, as within the folks simplicity of ""The Bridge at the Zepa,"" otherwise give you the reader with a few unusual pressure of melancholic romance, as within the very attractive identify tale, ""The Pasha's Concubine."" Like Tolstoy, like Chekhov, and every now and then like Kazantzakis, Andric's identity with the folk and scenes he writes approximately has a tendency to be beautiful approximately absolute. this isn't to claim that his paintings displays his personal inner most psychology; to the contrary, there's not anything literary approximately his pics or descriptions. particularly, Andric is ready not just to efface his specific sensibility and feel of tradition, but additionally to soak up alien moods and primitive presences to such an volume that he turns into a type of nameless fabulist, a discreet recorder of sorrows and myths, a author with none idiosyncratic signature, but with an earthiness and unforced luminosity which in his top paintings earrings marvelously precise. ""Bar Titanic,"" the masterpiece of the gathering, a story of a Jew and his stumbling nemesis, so enters the burdened banal lives of its protagonists that the full hapless tragedy of bigotry and scapegoat background is made achingly transparent. Andric received the 1961 Nobel Prize.
