Grossman s best known book Life and Fate was the seuel to this extraordinary novel Its history is complicated and in this new version the translator Robert Chandler has attempted to create a definitive edition from the various versions that survive three of which were published in Russia in the 1950s Both books were clearly influenced by War and Peace and Grossman s concept was to create something similar centreing on the battle of Stalingrad Inevitably the compromises reuired to make a recent history acceptable to the Soviet authorities are still visible there are plenty of sections that read as Soviet propaganda and the balance between war reporting and civilian stories is much skewed towards war than either War and Peace or Life and Fate For all that much of this book is just as good as Life and Fate and the two are complementary Grossman deploys his characters expertly allowing all aspects of the war to be explored in detail including various German perspectives Some of the major characters in Life and Fate notably Viktor Shtrum are little than bit part players here but as Chandler explains this was largely dictated by the Soviet authorities tooChandler s translation is always lively and readable despite the occasional anachronistic modern word choice and he has done a very impressive job of recreating Grossman s original artistic vision A must read book

За правое дело characters ´ 104 Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook é Vasily Grossman Read За правое дело Ov el viejo marxista Mostovskói el científico Shtrum y Aleksandra Sháposhnikova cuya vitalidad triunfará sobre el mal y la muerte se interrogan acerca de la viabilidad del comunismo y el porué del fascismo mientras luchan por sobrevivir a los horrores de la guerr. With Life and Fate lingering on my tbr for far too long this was an automatic must read when published in English for the first time It s a text with a complicated history and gestation so it s well worth reading the introduction and afterword to understand what it is exactly that we re reading here In some ways this is a magnificent failure as a novel self consciously locating itself against War and Peace it offers a panorama of Soviet life leading up to and during the battle for Stalingrad Central is the extended Shaposhnikov family their friends and lovers But we flit between multiple character PoVs and pan in and out as Grossman sees fit sometimes we re deep inside someone s personal life then we retreat and don t return to that character again The canvas and character list is vast and as is the case in Tolstoy many are mere walk on characters so I wouldn t agonise too much about who is who Their brief page life is important their name isn t always Grossman s own viewpoint varies at some points he s a journalist chronicling the meetings between Hitler and his ministers for example at others he s pure novelist embedded with his fictional creations and writing in extended flashbacks to give them a personal history to which we are privy Then again an important character may die and we re barely given any reaction Most disconcerting is the lack of a defined story arc the battle for Stalingrad is clearly central but the pace of the novel is leisurely and there s no ending the battle is still raging the novel just finishes Of course we know the story continues with many of the same characters and an enlarged canvas in Life and Fate but this almost feels like a parallel text rather than a preuel We know that this was a novel that had a problematic relationship with the Soviet authorities and the censors but really it s hard to see why Grossman was a positive supporter of the Revolution and an rabid opponent of Hitler and fascism not least because he was Jewish and both emotions come through strongly Stalingrad was of course a turning point of the war and a significant achievement that marked the Russian psyche It s fascinating to witness an almost contemporary view of Stalin s war broadcasts Hitler s cabinet and their plans Above all what I loved about this book is the way it pays homage to human ideals this war is terrible the numbers of dead are exhausting yet somehow there s a kind of nobility that permeates the souls of these Russians as they resist the German onslaught fighting with courage and a clear sightedness for something bigger than the lone individual

За правое дело characters ´ 104 Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook é Vasily Grossman Read За правое дело En febrero de 1943 termina la batalla de Stalingrado Vasili Grossman ue ha estado en primera línea como corresponsal emprende su fresco novelístico sobre la contienda Por una causa justa cuya segunda entrega se convertirá en la mundialmente aclamada Vida y destino. A masterpiece out this June and I ll have to say on it then This is a fascinating contrast with perhaps my favorite novel LIFE AND FATE which is STALINGRAD s direct seuel STALINGRAD is the Iliad to that Odyssey Soviet censorship has made this a tamer conventional novel than it perhaps should have been but Grossman s accomplishment glimmers throughout This is a novel that is at once conventionally linear and surprisingly inventive the bombing of Stalingrad rewinds over and over again a crucial letter about the holocaust is never read Its dozens of characters intersect masterfully over 960 pages all of them having some connection to the Shaposhnikov family A difficult read often sad and agonizing but also hugely rewarding and a fascinating glimpse of an author working heroically under the most difficult constraints
