review ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö Max Frisch Max Frisch Ö 6 free read free read Homo faber Ein Bericht ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB De rationeel ingestelde Walter Faber Zwitsers ingenieur in dienst van de Unesco vertrouwt op machines getallen en statistieken Maar een reeks merkwaardige gebeurtenissen doet zijn wereldbeeld op zijn grondvesten schudden Hij is passagier in een vliegtuig dat een noodlanding midden in de woestijn van Mexi. And now here at last is a real book for grown ups Intelligent and utterly unsentimental Homo Faber would I feel have been wasted on me if I d read it ten years ago now it strikes me as extraordinary This is unlike most novels which if not actually aimed at people in their late teens and early twenties seem to resonate most strongly with that intense and exciting age groupAs it happens Walter Faber the central character of this novel does not read novels at all He can t see the point A technician for UNESCO Faber builds things records them and analyses them He believes in logic reason facts brute statistics A machine impresses him in a way that a human does not because it feels no fear and no hope which only disturb it has no wishes with regard to the result it operates according to the pure logic of probability Faber has few close male friends women he can t relate to at all Too emotional I m not cynical he explains I m merely realistic which is something women can t stand I called her a sentimentalist and arty crafty She called me Homo FaberHis one serious relationship ended in divorce years ago She scorned his beloved technology as the knack of so arranging the world that we don t have to experience it And she by contrast was an archaeologist I stick the past together she says in one of the novel s few moments of unsubtletyI can imagine many readers finding Faber very unlikeable even monstrous and yet I feel desperately defensive towards him perhaps because he reminds me of my father Actually he reminds me of all fathers there is an air of generalised daddishness about him and this is not coincidental the notion of paternity is crucial to the book I like functionalism Faber says He has a prose style to match This is not to say that it is dry or clunky or unartful because it is none of those things The style is astonishingly telegraphic elliptical Faber narrating the facts that he considers important The effect is staccato but wonderful an extreme example here from a virtuoso section set in HavanaMy lust for lookingMy desireVacuum between the loinsI exist now only for shoeshine boysThe pimpsThe ice cream vendorsTheir vehicle a combination of old pram and mobile canteen added to half a bicycle a baldachin with rusty curtains a carbide lamp all around the green twilight dotted with their flared skirtsThe lilac moonOften you are forced to read between the lines to understand what is really going on and sometimes this reaches such a pitch that one has the impression of having experienced a scene twice All the time Faber is writing to understand what has happened and to justify his behaviour to himself He can hardly accept the novelistic coincidences that the story involves this cannot have happened How was I to know What else could I have done The probability was minuscule These were the facts as I knew themI am not mentioning the plot because it shouldn t be spoiled Which seems strange because we are given all the main facts uite early on But part of the point of the book is discovering that the facts are not always after all the most important thingIt s not often I really really love books in translation This is not because of any hipsterish misconception that you re not getting the real book it s just that one of the things I most enjoy analysing when I read is the nuts and bolts mechanics of sentence construction and vocabulary choice and this is all very different when you are reading the words of a translator Not that translators are not adept at this too they are but their motives and concerns are to do with fidelity to someone else s idea rather than their own and this difference is fundamental But here I was riveted by the techniue on displayThere is a moment where Faber recalls being on a beach in Greece with a girl The two of them have a competition of similes describing what they can see in terms of what it looks like This is new ground for scientific minded Faber but he gets into it and the paragraph rolls on for pagesThen we found we could make out the surf on the seashore Like beer froth Sabeth thought like a ruche I took back my beer froth and said like fibreglass But Sabeth didn t know what fibreglass was Then came the first rays of the sun over the sea like a sheaf like spears like cracks in a glass like a monstrance like photos of electron bombardment But there was only one point for each round it was no use producing half a dozen similes Soon after this the sun rose dazzling Like metal spurting out of a furnace I thought Sabeth said nothing and lost a pointIt s hard to describe the effect this long passage has on you coming as it does after 150 pages in which I don t think a single simile had been deployed To me it felt like being hit by a truck It s one of the most unusual and powerful devices I can remember in terms of constructing a novel and the reason is that the passage coincides exactly with a moment of exuisite emotion both for Faber the character experiencing it and for Faber the narrator remembering it There is something technically brilliant going on in hereThere are so many other aspects to this superb novel that I haven t even touched on its comments on the war its deliberate and wide ranging internationalism its precise descriptive scenes The story is clear eyed and matter of fact and this has a cumulative effect that is uite devastating heart breaking really And yet for all that what I am left with is this unexpected life affirming feelinga renewed appreciation of what existence entails To be alive to be in the light Driving donkeys around somewhere like that old man in Corinth that s all our job amounts to The main thing is to stand up to the light to joy like our child in the knowledge that I shall be extinguished in the light over gorse asphalt and sea to stand up to time or rather to eternity in the instant To be eternal means to have existed
