READ ☆ Петербург Er with people from Petersburg society in an exhilarating search for the identity of a city and ultimately Russia itself 'The one novel that sums up the whole of Russia' Anthony Burgess. 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

READ ☆ Петербург Bol of the ambiguities and paradoxes of the Russian character History culture and politics are blended and juxtaposed; weather reports current news fashions and psychology jostle togeth. A curious work Something definitely out of the common groove But it is a novel and there is a story that does get told albeit in a rather uirky way When the pace is strong it s good and fun to read while at other times when the pace is slow the author becomes somewhat self indulgent entertaining himself with mists and shadows and other unsubstantial things Not bad not great 35 stars we ll call it 4 Le Comte de Monte Cristo definitely out of the common groove But it is a novel and there is a story that Planeta mediocrilor does get told albeit in a rather uirky way When the pace is strong it s good and fun to read while at other times when the pace is slow the author becomes somewhat self indulgent entertaining himself with mists and shadows and other unsubstantial things Not bad not great 35 stars we ll call it 4
