    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 KindleI kept thinking in images as I read this short book by Jean Echenoz The images I saw in my mind's eye were mostly war scenes since this book is about WWI but they weren’t horrific they weren't filled with bombed out wastelands desperation or misery No the images I saw had the delicate outline of resigned figures in uniform marching eating resting or the elegant silhouettes of relatives left behind in some idyllic town its church spire outlined against a clear sky All the images had the warm glow of evening suffusing everything with a surprising calm There wasn’t much depth of field to my images No everything was conveyed in outlines recruitment food euipment action individual destinies all itemised and r

    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 KindleJean Echenoz is not a verbose author; with few words he conveys much In this slim novella which weighs in at 130 pages including copious notes he says a great deal about WWI About the high hopes and expectations as 'green' French recruits first set out for the Front in 1914 almost as if they were embarking on an exciting adventure About how they were going to celebrate in triumph in Berlin in a matter of weeks And then the stark reality of war the Great War Where reality almost becomes unreal and men react like automatons Many authors have written about all of this in many books but author Echenoz knocks one on the head with his sparse language his very few words At times his words seem bland or even callous but they shock all the same Absurdity incongruity and irony are all hallmarks of his craft#PS Read the interesting notes#Kudos to Linda Coverdale for the translation I'd have preferred to read this in the original French but that is not always an option for me as foreign

    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 Kindle A disarmingly simple novella of the Great WarAt only 109 pages plus the copious and very informative notes by the translator Linda Coverdale Jean Echenoz' novella might seem too slight to cover even the last months of 1914 when France entered a war expected

    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 KindleJean Echenoz one of France's most talented and versatile writers here tackles a formidable topic the First World War which has already inspired a small library of great literature He succeeds at his task somewhat surprisingly without relying upon either historical breadth or psychological depth 14 has an extremely small cast of characters essentially five young men recruited together and one young woman left behind All these are portrayed strictly from the outside For example one of the recruits is unjustly accused of desertion and is executed without any direct indication of how he feels about this horrifying process The narrative focus not only avoids direct psychological penetration but also stays largely upon minutiae lice rats consuming bits of human flesh jewelry one soldier makes from shell casings containers of urine catapulted into enemy trenches etc Echenoz's genius in this and other novels is the way his complex elegant prose so often dissolves into hu

    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 KindleNot a very special short novel with a rather simple WWI story told almost like a fairytail or tragicomedy One would think there is material enough here to write a fullgrown novel What did the writer intend to do? Wri

    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 KindleI keep hoping for another novel from Echenoz that I'll enjoy as much as I'm Gone but three novels on that hasn't happened I was curious about 1914 published in French as 14 as it also happens to be his 14th novel or so I read somewhere I'm in the midst of what will probably be a year long reading project of fat histories of World War I These are an exceptional crop of books as illuminated by RJW Evans's recent essay in the NYRB – but I was ready for a breatherThere's already a trove of novels about the WWI – my favorite being Pat Barker's Regeneration trilogy For English writers it seems to have been the most literary war ever Echenoz knows this knows everything so much so that you wonder why he bothered to write this slight novel about five young men who go off to war and suffer the conseuences At one point a certain resignation pops to the surface All this has been described a thousand times so perhaps it's not worthwhile to linger any longer over that sordid

    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 KindleA small novel that concentrates in a few pages the experience of the First World War Going straight into the subject the author presents the war from various angles from the rear to frontline soldiers with a prose full of interesting metaphors that manages to say many things in a few words This condensation does not in any way limit the description of the details of the Warfare and military life but on the other it limits the greater depth to the facts and characters though in a simple way the author manages to put us in their place Even so I liked the book as the knowledge I gained about the First World War somehow filled the gaps if it were much biger my apprecia

    PDF 14 MOBI µ Ú tyrakel.de 14 KindleAs suggested by its title 1914 serves as both the key and the cornerstone of the story A story shaped in every way by war 1914 has as its focus 5 men from the Vendée in the Loire Region of France Anthime an accountant by training; his cousin Charles who felt himself superior to his 4 compatriots; Padioleau a skilled butcher; Bossi; and Arcenel who joined the Army the day after mobilization was declared and were assigned to the same regiment at the Front in the earliest days of the war The author does a good job of conveying the euphoria felt across France at the time A euphoria that soon evaporated once the first casualties occurred and stalemate took hold across the Front Casualties that would grow to a horrifying degree as the war advanced Charles who had connections would secure a transfer to the Aviation Militaire serving as an observer on a photo reconnaissance airplane The others would continue to serve in the trenches weathering battle after battle The wa
