Sei anni di incessante lavoro precedono l’uscita del libro, nel 1910, e dieci anni di “siccità” artistica la seguono. Sorta di romanzo-diario autobiografico, il Malte è la documentazione artistica, e per molti aspetti rivoluzionaria, di una tormentosa condizione esistenziale: quella dell’artista chiuso nella propria interiorità; ed è anche la prova, sconcertante, della crisi del romanzo ottocentesco. Libro permeato d’interni e d’interiorità, di nomi e di nomi di cose, che riesce a tradurre in parola anche gli eventi più infimi e impercettibili, anche l’orribile e il terribile, il Malte è una delle poche opere poste sulla soglia della modernità letteraria.

We humans, with our mighty brain, like to use its powers to dwell on our own condition, which is precisely, but only partly, determined by the nature of this brain with which we have been equipped. Themes like love, or an emphatic vulnerability to another being; our sense of time, with memories of ou Leggi tutto
IO IMPARO A VEDERE Luigi Russolo: Profumo, 1910 Era l’epoca in cui cercavo identificazione piena in ciò che leggevo, volevo specchiarmi e riflettermi nel personaggio principale. Errore madornale. Ma in quella mia epoca succedeva così: vivevo via dalla famiglia già da un po’, mi stavo impadronendo dell Leggi tutto
This novel is amazing. I am sitting here, reading the responses left by others, and what the hell? Most of you are downgrading this book due to the lack of Rilke's message in this book. For those of you who do not know Rilke, Rilke is considered one of the worlds greatest poets, as this was his f
I adore this odd novel (I read the new Vilain translation) - as weird and wild as I've read, brilliantly anticipatory of later developments in modernism, teeming with ghosts and the unwell, intensely neurotic, (of course) poetic. It is not an EASY read - particularly when it comes to the last third
Rilke’s semiautobiographical surrogate Malte Laurids Brigge is a young Dane, a noble scion adrift in early twentieth century Paris, trying to become a poet. He corresponds rather well to Anthony Burgess’s description, in his charming study ReJoyce (1965), “of the type of student Stephen Daedelus rep Leggi tutto
I don’t imagine that I will always read. I hope not, anyway. For someone who is so scared of death it is rather perverse, or certainly absurd, that I spend so much of my time amongst the dead, instead of engaging with the world around me. Indeed, that is why I started reading heavily, it was, I’m su Leggi tutto
Die Aufzeichnungen des Malte Laurids Brigge = The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, Rainer Maria Rilke The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge was Rainer Maria Rilke's only novel, and is said to have greatly influenced such other writers as Jean-Paul Sartre. It was written whilst Rilke lived in Paris, Leggi tutto
'The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge' isn't a very novelistic novel, as it is told as a sort of diary in the first person and is semi-autobiographical. Brigge is a twenty-eight year old Danish man, alone and adrift in Paris. He wishes to transmute his fear of death into some profound literary work Leggi tutto
Let’s make one thing clear here: this is described everywhere as Rilke’s only novel, but I would never have called this book a novel. The loosely connected vignettes that make up this little tome are presented as the reflections that Malte Laurids Brigge put down on paper while living in Paris. They Leggi tutto
Upon reading The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge one is left haunted by the wonderfully poetic prose, but in possession of only a vague notion of what the book was about. Through a series of disjointed vignettes, Rilke opens a window into the soul of his protagonist, but the view is as from a movi Leggi tutto
