Malina author Ingeborg Bachmann review ¼ 103 read & download Malina author Ingeborg Bachmann Dublul celorlalte Exista insa si „al treilea barbat” figura supradimensionata a unui tata distructiv demascat intr un lung sir de scene cosmaresti din copilaria protagonistei O tensiune insuportabila Un „eu” ce se destrama lent si in final dispare la propriu atunci cand Ivan se retrage din fata pasiunii delirante pe care chiar el o starnise Romanul. Why Malina Has no Message for FeministsThe English translation of Malina ends with an academic essay intended to explain the book s cultural and historical references and also to help readers who may be confused by the book s experimental form and content The first purpose is reasonable for North American readers the second is ridiculous The book is hermetic desperately unhappy remorseless disconsolate dissociative and ambiguously realistic mythic and allegorical Those should all be signs that a brief explanation won t be helpful This is how Anderson summarizes the book s receptionTo those familiar with her poetry Malina seems the continuation in narrative of the problems and images informing the lyrical work of the 1950s To a new generation of feminist readers who had little patience with what they saw as her hermetic aestheticist poetry Malina and the other unfinished novels of the Death Styles cycle have come to stand for a radically other Bachmann the critic of patriarchal capitalist society where women are systematically denied a voice and language of their own To historians familiar with the art and philosophy of Hapsburg Vienna the novel represents a masterly synthesis of a distinctly Austrian tradition one that reached it apogee at the turn of the century in the work of Freud Musil Roth Schoenberg Wittgenstein Hofmannsthal and Kraus Finally to contemporary German writers as diverse as Christa Wolf Thomas Bernhard and Peter Handke ot stands as an inspirational example for their own work pp 239 40Note that only one of these three the one attributed to feminist readers is an interpretation of the text itself Many of the reviews on and Goodreads are similarly concerned with gender roles The translation seems to be read as a memoir autobiography or trauma narrative A good exception to this is Life Or Thearer a review by Jennifer Krasinski in Bookforum SeptOctNov 2019 p 31 One reviewer on Goodreads puts it this wayThe generation Bachmann describes has made female victimhood an art form It grated on my nerves because I have been fighting my whole life both against the male attitude of condescension and property and the female passive voice of pleasurable suffering Look at me I am killed by male dominance Don t I look pretty in all my indignation Lisa on Goodreads 2018But Bachmann was much stranger than the pugilist advocate of women s rights imagined by online reviewers Readings like these are misguided because they project later desires for empowerment onto a text that is determinedly closed to meliorist narratives The novel continues to be taken as a prelude to some feminism but Malina does not imply any such future or hope It isn t about disempowerment gender roles or the lasting impact of child abuse in adult life Sarah Porter on Those are things the novel can only be about when it is read for use value by a 21st century audience accustomed to trauma narratives and self help books Malina itself does not want to be saved its narrator knows that the air we all breathe is poison Chapter 2 is full of scenes of violence incest rape and murder mostly centered on a father figure but as Peter Filkins wrote in the New York Times the narratorrealizes that the menace of her dreams is not my father It s my murderer The distinction is important For though Bachmann is clearly concerned with patriarchal power and the ravages of family violence inflicted upon women she also sees such issues as inextricably bound up with the violence done to both genders in the flawed if not fatal workings of society and history as well as the violence we do to and by words because we find it impossible to give full expression to such outrageLanguage itself for Bachmann is a form of violence a disease an expression of insanity The first uotation is Filkins s the second is Bachmann s Nor will it do to say that the two men in the narrator s life Ivan and Malina are absent or manipulative Ivan one of the two male characters cannot love anyone but his children even though the unnamed narrator declares her love for him but it is not at all clear that their miscommunication is a picture of conventional gender roles and the third character Malina is too strange and too nearly allegorical to be counted as an independent character at all Anderson thinks Malina is part of the narrator and that he s modeled on the Jungian anima There is some support for this in an interview with BachmannThe narrator herself does sometimes fit the model of trauma narratives she is in continuous crisis she cries she shakes she smokes drinks takes painkillers can t sleep or write And yet she doesn t communicate any better than the male characters This isn t feminist advocacy this is a world in which people try as best they can to remain minimally humanIn Bachmann s mind the poisons of language are personal in a way they aren t for Paul Celan There is an extended allegory of language and writing on pp 156 61 where the narrator tells the story of Otto Kranetizer a postal worker accused of hoarding unopened letters in his apartmentin every profession ie including writing there must be at least one man who lives in deep doubt and comes into a conflict Mail delivery the profession of a writer in particular would seem to reuire a latent angest a seismographic recording of emotional tremors which is otherwise accepted only in the higher and highest professions later described as professors of philosophy and science as if the mail couldn t have its own crisis no Thinking Wanting Being for it Denken Wollen Sein p 159 253 in the original see also Surika Simon Mail Orders The Fiction of Writing in Postmodern CultureThis is as close to Kafka as anyone in postwar fiction it s an extended allegory of artistic work as in Josephine the Singer or The Hunger Artist and it is infused with anxiety anger and fear What poisons the narrator in Malina is a different from what poisons words in CelanReadings of Malina that take their bearing from contemporary diary novels trauma narratives memoirs self help books or feminist theories draw on a simplified and domesticated sense of the book This novel is a tremendous achievement it is deeply experimental to the point of continuously undermining its supposedly secure three act form blithely announced at the beginning and elaborated by optimistic critics it is unsure of the relation between allegory dream and history and its story involving the narrator s death while living and her transformation into her spectral alter ego is darker than anything that a realist political or historical reading could use or comprehend Postscript 1 on metafictionI ll just close with two smaller points First Malina is a forerunner of the current interest in minimally fictional novels made popular by Ben Lerner At one point Ivan discovers notes for a manuscript the narrator intends to write called Todesarten Arts of Death or Death Styles which is the name of the trilogy of books Bachmann contemplated Malina is the only one she finished before she burned to death in her apartment in Rome on the ways people die while living through relationships by institutions and politics by language itself Ivan counsels the narrator to write a happy book instead Malina is not that book but the coincidence of the name of the book occurring in the book is parallel to Lerner s 1004 and other novels Writing the thinnest possible veneer of fiction on an experimental non linear narrative is one of several things Bachmann was experimenting with in the late 1960 s It would be interesting if the contemporary moment could acknowledge its belatednessPostscript 2 on humorAnd last I d also like to register that Malina has some very funny pages I cringe when reviewers say this sort of thing But Bachmann s humor comes from a desperate fear and hatred of people in general a kind of acidic combination of Kafka and Bernhard Here is her suggestion for how to write back to someone who blithely wishes you a happy birthday as so many social media sites do these daysDearYou wish me best wishes for my birthday Permit me to tell you how shocked I was precisely today To be sure I have no doubt as to your tact since I had the honor of meeting you some years ago However you are alluding to a day perhaps even a specific hour and an irrevocable moment which must have been a most private matter for my mother my father too as we may assume for the sake of propriety Naturally nothing in particular was shared with me about this day I just had to memorize a date which I have to write down on every registration form in every city in every country even if I m only passing through But I stopped passing through countries a long time ago p 90

The name alone suffices to be in the world Malina is one of those novels that feels completely natural to me arising almost like an organism without pretense or premeditated designs Its easy playful voice keeps me reading despite the somber themes that run underneath It is a particularly difficult novel for me to describe as it tackles many serious topics war post war time history personal relationships men and women yet when you pull back its main thrust is elusive What is this book about Who even is Malina I have no answers and in a way the answers don t really matter Yes I read the afterword with some pretty convincing angles And some of it has validityWhat matters to me is that it is enjoyable at every juncture And it feels so right just in my bones like I buy everything it says Just the whole damn thing seems so necessary and true like a lived thing It seems less a novel and a byproduct of someone s having been aliveOnce one has survived something then survival itself interferes with understanding p146
