The twin spires of Time and Light stand out for me on the busy skyline of this phenomenal book Time counts down the narrative while Light provides the special effects that rhythm the ebb and flow of the truly idiosyncratic counting down process Yes ebb and flow is appropriate to mention here We expect Time to move only in one direction and always at the same pace according to the age old rules but Bely s Time strikes right through the rule book It doubles back and when it s not busy reversing it suddenly speeds up in a thunderous wave or even bizarrely slows down to a complete stop The exclamation mark at the end of that sentence is there for than exclamatory purposes Bely uses exclamation marks as if they d just been invented sometimes they even mark pauses especially when the narrative has gone into one of its fast forward modes and the reader is at risk of collapsing from the exhaustion of keeping up Then Bely drops an exclamation mark onto the page followed by an ellipsis or two and some blank space and our hearts return to normal rhythm and we take time to rethink what we ve just read realising that it may only have been an hallucination on the part of a character or even a hallucination of our own When the blank space becomes print again we invariably find the clock has been wound back once so that we are being shown the same scene from a different point of view and what seemed utterly phantasmagorical a few moments before becomes just an ordinary Petersburg night with a few trees tossing about on the city s main thoroughfare the Nevsky Prospect But even a regular windy night can seem bizarre when Bely gives it his Light treatment The sky is often greenish or pewter coloured the Nevsky Prospect is enveloped in a fiery murk street lights are blood red pinpoints the roofs of houses give off a phosphorescent sheen passersby are reduced to shadows while shadows suddenly form themselves into passersby Alongside the oddly ticking Time this playing around with Light leaves us uncertain about what we ve just read Does the crimson sky indicate morning or is it actually evening Is that building really adorned with black lace or is it only the shadow of the trees Did the statue of the famous Bronze Horseman just thunder down from its giant plinth to chase a character through the city as in Pushkin s poem of the same name Or was it a trick of the Light in collusion with some phantom Sound engineer Yes Sound works closely with Light to make us very wary of Petersburg s grey and foggy streets They seem to echo all the time with a ghostly ooo and even when we stop reading we think we can still hear it ooo ooo oooOf course the year is 1905 when revoloootion was in the air and that backdrop is partly responsible for some of the sounds we think we hear as we read such as the whoosh of gravel thrown at a window by a mob or the clicking sound in the corner of a room that could simply be a cockroach or a mouse but could also be something much menacing Then there s the constant whistle of steamboats out on the Neva and the i sound that the wind carries from across Russia the sound of public ire of strikes of picket lines of every Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov marching marching marching Footsteps rhythm the story tatam tam tamtatatam tam tam perhaps while a character thinks about the music of Tchaikovsky s ueen of Spades or on a different page a different character plucks the strings of a guitar bam bam bam strumming out what could be the line of the narrative but then breaking offmid lineThe line of the narrative if it could be traced on paper might follow this odd pattern That graphic representation of a narrative arc was made by Laurence Sterne nearly 200 years before Bely wrote this book but if I ve paused to recall Sterne s Tristram Shandy it s with a dual purpose Both authors play around with Time in their novels pulling it out to an extraordinary degree and both authors also love digressions in Sterne s novel the digressions simply amuse whereas in Bely s they heighten the suspense in a major way and increasingly as the pages turn And while we re talking digressions let me mention another author who plays with Time Dostoyevsky in Crime and Punishment Coincidentally the time span of that novel is the same as Bely s ten days or so Dostoyevsky makes us very aware of Time passing although he specialises not in jumping about in time but in slowing it down recording each second of his character s ten day existence And as I read Bely s Petersburg I was reminded of Dostoyevsky s novel for other reasons besides the treatment of Time Dostoyevsky s main character Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov constantly roams the Nevsky Prospect just as Bely s characters do and Raskolnikov himself possesses traits that mirror those of Bely s two main characters Nicolai Apollonovich Ableukhov and Alexandr Ivanovich Dudkin Like Raskolnikov Ableukhov s intensive course of philosophical studies has confused his mind so much that he finds himself involved in a crime while Bely s second hero Dudkin suffers from hallucinations just as Raskolnikov does Both Dudkin and Raskolnikov live in tiny cupboard like rooms with yellowed wallpaper through which they imagine they are being spied on by malevolent eyes and both eventually commit violent acts one with an axe one with ascissors It s also interesting that in both novels there s an agent provocateur who plays psychological games with the main characters and drives them to a state approaching delirium Had my panic stricken hero been able to take a look at himself from the side at that moment he would have been horrified in the greenish moonlit little cupboard of a room he would have seen himself clutching at his stomach and bawling with effort into the absolute emptiness in front of him his head was thrown right back and the enormous opening of his yelling mouth would have seemed to him a black abyss of non existence but Aleksandr Ivanovich could not jump out of himself and he did not see himselfBut to return to the themes of Time and Light that dominated Bely s book for me perhaps the image I will take with me from the reading experience is not Munch s Scream but the following word picture the Nevsky Prospect is bathed in a fiery crimson glow that might be dawn or might be dusk it is thronging with bowler hats moustaches noses and shoulders noses flowed past in large numbers the auiline nose and the cockerel nose the duck like nose the hen s nose and so on and so on the nose was turned to one side or the nose was not at all turned greenish green pale white and redand shoulders shoulders shoulders flowed past all the shoulders formed a thick mass as black as coal all the shoulders formed a highly viscous and slowly

Петербург Free download à 108 Read & download ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Þ Andrei Bely 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. In his later years when Andrei Bely was slowly going mad he hacked his original text of Petersburg making it twice shorter and endlessly dryer in order to make it readable for proles I doubt that any proletarian had ever read the novel but somehow this bastardly version had found its way to English translation And only lately the adeuate modern translation of the novel has been published in English Solitary street lamps were metamorphosed into sea creatures with prismatic spines Andrei Bely virtually turns Petersburg into a tenebrous undersea realm and populates it with all sorts of revolutionary reactionary anarchistic deranged regressive and renegade monsters And now as he looked pensively into that boundlessness of mists the man of state suddenly expanded out of the black cube in all directions and soared above it and he desired that the carriage should fly forward that the prospects should fly towards him prospect after prospect that the whole spherical surface of the planet should be gripped by the blackish grey cubes of the houses as by serpentine coils that the whole of the earth sueezed by prospects should intersect the immensity in linear cosmic flight with rectilinear law The book is written in the magnificently burlesue language and it is a kaleidoscope of human whims caprices fixations phobias and ideas
