    One thought on “Grobowiec dla Borysa Dawidowicza”

    1. Brilliant forward by Joseph Brodsky? Check.Adequate afterword by William T. Vollman? Check.Bookended in-between? I’ll quote Grace Zabriskie’s interloping madwoman from Inland Empire: ”Brutal fucking murder!”A Tomb for Boris Davidovich is a book of brutal fucking murders. You begin to feel the creeping disquiet, the emerging horror, very early on, when Miksha, the tailor’s apprentice, solves the problem of a bothersome skunk that’s been snatching chickens from the chicken coop by trap [...]

    2. He who has seen the present has seen everything, that which happened in the most distant past and that which will happen in the future.Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, book VI, 37. (Quoted by Danilo Kiš)If conventional short stories could be compared to films in which the story unfolds in a linear manner, then the stories in 'A Tomb for Boris Davidovich' could be compared to a series of still photos ( a little like Chris Marker's film 'La Jetée') each described in precise, almost austere detail. [...]

    3. If you think this is merely the stuff of historical nightmare, try to put in mind the current realities of Guantanamo, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, et al. According to the formidable Joseph Brodsky, (the author of the Introduction to this edition of Kis' A Tomb for Boris Davidovich (ATfBD)) the Yugoslav Union of Writers accused the author of plagiarizing Solzhenitsyn, Joyce, Nadezhda Mandelstam, Jorge Luis Borges, the Medvedev brothers, and others. I understand each (excepting, of course, Mandelsta [...]

    4. In Danilo Kiš’s style I’ve seen a perceptible influence of Isaac Babel and also his stories are spiced with some Varlam Shalamov’s overtones.But thematically A Tomb for Boris Davidovich goes as a sequel to A Universal History of Iniquity by Jorge Luis Borges… Those who play revolutionary games are villains by definition and even if they win sooner or later they’ll fall prey to the greater villains.“Novsky was already a man of failing health; the dog years of hard labor and revolutio [...]

    5. It’s not that I’m saying Danilo Kiš isn’t original or talented ; but what I’m saying is that we need more Borgeses of xyz. Kiš does this job wonderfully for Yugoslavia in his Boris book. And most cheerfully I now have the following string of literary=cards :: Borge --> Kiš --> Vollmann ; which pleases me greatly. Less cheerfully is the discovery of a juxtaposition of stories in this novel* which shows : not much has changed ;; and one could discover perhaps quickly a story writt [...]

    6. Goddamnit, that was genius-ly crafted bleakitude. I think I need a hug before I can stew on this text. Brodsky's intro is tremendous - a fitting companion to such an important piece of lit.

    7. IL PENSIERO È IL PEGGIORE DEI DELITTI Qui solo i nomi sono fittizi. La storia, purtroppo, è assolutamente vera. Anche se vorremmo che non lo fosse.Sette storie che parlano di Storia, sette narrazioni che usano la Storia per raccontare il Male: quel Terrore, che chissà perché si identifica con la Rivoluzione francese, mentre è il secolo breve che lo porta alle vette massime. Nel caso specifico, in questi sette racconti si tratta del terrore sovietico, del regno di “doppiezza e paura”.Si [...]

    8. Citind povestirile lui Kis, portretele unor oameni striviţi, chiar anihilaţi, de propriile convingeri sau de sistemul la care au aderat, mi-a revenit obsedant în minte unul din tablourile lui Goya: Cronos devorându-şi copiii Căci exact asta s-a întâmplat în toată perioada revoluţiei bolşevice şi, ulterior, în regimul stalinist, cu cei mai fideli şi mai însufleţiţi susţinători ai noii orânduiri. Revoltător şi înspăimântător, dar adevărat.Pe scurt: fragmente de istorie, [...]

    9. I don’t think I’ve ever read something so proficient yet so indebted to another author. Kis, it has been noted, is a Borges progeny. Check it out:The next night, that of January 29-30, the scene was repeated: the guards led Novsky down the vertiginous spiral stairs into the deep cellars of the prison. Novsky realised with horror that this repetition was not accidental, but part of an infernal plan: each day of his life would be paid for with the life of another man; the perfection of his bio [...]

    10. Jesus, that was my husk of a response after I finished this one on a rainy afternoon, still jet-lagged from a honeymoon of sorts in London and back in Indiana, one foaming with the necessity of quickly organizing most aspects of my life.

    11. A Basement in YekaterinburgOn the 17th of July 1918, the Russian Imperial Romanov family, including Tsar Nicholas II [nicknamed Nicholas the Bloody], were murdered in a basement in Yekaterinburg. There are numerous rumours surrounding the deaths, with perhaps the most lurid being that the princesses had to be finished off with bayonets, as the bullets intended for their flesh had been deflected away by the jewels hidden in their blouses. Although the Russian empire had collapsed with Nicholas’ [...]

    12. what a wonderful little treasure of a book, a blend of darkness at noon and borges' ficciones that succinctly points out the issues with totalitarian govt. the ways in which it destroys a part of itself and the destroys the parts that first did the destroying: a sorta self-replicating, inbent idea of destruction, where pursuit and paranoia are the two default options and you may not always know which side you are on. a place where narrative is important, where ending a man's life is not enough, [...]

    13. Este libro aparentemente pequeño me costó más trabajo del que pensé, y más tiempo también. Genera sentimientos muy densos todo el rato, y tenía que dejar espacio para digerirlos.A lo largo de 7 cuentos, D kis habla de situaciones límite, el huir de la muerte, o de la captura, de la prisión, o de el trabajo forzado, a la vez que encuentra espacio para meter toques de ironía en tanto drama de ese submundo, un submundo que vive siempre cercano a la muerte y a la amenaza, hecho de idealist [...]

    14. No lyricism here, except for brief violent spurts; mostly just bone-dry irony, and when it comes to describing the slow march of Stalinism through the consciousness of Eastern Europe (and beyond) bone-dry irony is probably the preferred mode. I enjoyed the refreshing lack of sentimentality and self-aggrandizement of the victims like you get in a lot of other indictments of totalitarian cruelty. This book rewards close attention; parts that seem dry or overly factual contain a mess of emotions an [...]

    15. A collection of seven sparse tales about the dark comedies of life in the Comintern, and how revolutions devour their own children, as Saturn did. Bitterly mocking these cruel moments of fate. Read them all in one sitting, after bedtime, and will stay with me long after.

    16. "Those books were bound in leather, marked with numbers, and written by learned men; in them, had they wanted to read them, they could have found thousands of reasons why they should have killed me at once, and in them, had they wanted to read them, they could also have found the balm and cure for their hatred. I told them not to rip them apart, for many books are not dangerous, only one is dangerous; I told them not to tear them apart, for the reading of many books brings wisdom, and the readin [...]

    17. In this excellent novel, author Danilo Kiš takes the reader on a tour of an early 20th Century European Hell. This Europe is akin to a bubbling, simmering cauldron in which institutional ideology and cynicism are blended in equal measure. What's cooking? An all you can eat buffet of atrocity. Who are the guests? Idealists and pragmatists alike. You too; you're invited.The collection of stories that constitute this novel don't intersect much, except thematically. Characters that make a cameo in [...]

    18. Una obra breve e impresionante. De lo mejor que he leído este año, y mi primera lectura de Kis.Además de las referencias que se suelen hacer con esta obra, he entrevisto en los distintos relatos, aunque sea fugazmente a Orwell y a Koestler.La prosa es muy fluida, pero a la vez cargada de un significado profundo. Los destinos de los protagonistas son trágicos, fruto, la mayor parte de las veces, de circunstancias políticas. El totalitarismo, la persecución del diferente, como estrategia de [...]

    19. I've noticed that for whatever reason when people happen to speak of Modern Serbian literature the usually discussed 'classics' are typically titles such as: 'Death and the Dervish' , 'The Bridge on the Drina' , or some obscure and roughly translated work. Danilo Kiš' writing is either left out of the conversation or simply brushed off as an admirable sort of 'runner-up' choice (Like Boccaccio is to Dante). This is an unfortunate established pattern: one that stunts the potential trajectory of [...]

    20. Knjiga u kojoj glavni junaci umiru za moj rođendan - kako da je ne volim? Dođe mi da se zapitam da nemam i ja kakve veze sa Novskim i Nojmanom u tom cikličnom kretanju vremena.Ipak, mislim da mi je u ovom djelu najdraža posljednja rečenica:„Snimak njegovih mošnji, veličine najveće kolhozne tikve, preštampava se i u stranim stručnim knjigama gde god je reč o elefantijazisu (elephantiasis nostras) i kao naravoučenije piscima da za pisanje nisu dovoljna samo muda.“Kiš, očigledno, [...]

    21. Danilo Kis, a Yugoslavian author and a Jew, fluidly ties together a book of short stories that mournfully capture the reality of life under Communism in the first half of the twentieth century. I chose this book not because it gives us a cogent view of the country of Yugoslavia - it doesn’t . I chose Kis because of his contribution to Yugoslavian literature and to literature that give us historical context of the atrocity of Communism and its affect on those who lived under its rule, no matter [...]

    22. This is the sort of book that only pretentious lit majors can love. Kis writes in an infuriating nonlinear style full of oblique references that only Kis and his immediate friends are likely to know, for the sole purpose of showing how incredibly well-read and generally awesome they are compared, arbitrarily, to anyone else who doesn't happen to have thatexactsame literary education. He's basically the Eastern European equivalent of James Joyce-meets-Borges. Everything in this book is carefully [...]

    23. A Tomb for Boris Davidovich, by Danilo Kis, a Yugoslav writer, is a collection of seven loosely connected short stories or episodes, all dark, mostly about Communist figures (none specifically in Yugoslavia) of the first half of the 20th century, all of whom ultimately come to grief in various purges. It is a harsh book, unrelenting in its despair, reminding me of works by other authors – Kafka’s various works, Solzhenitsyn’s One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Arthur Koestler’s Dark [...]

    24. Kis is a historian, who, while not particularly clear with his sources, writes the stories of assorted leftists he has conjured out of his imaginary. The world is a bitter, drab place - the book is an ode to justice, built up, imagined and denied.He does a good job of portraying the removal of some joy of life that exists when men are hagiographied, obituaried, placed into history. But, even if that effort is cognisant, it makes for a novel as dour as its subject. It makes for a clinical sort of [...]

    25. Dude does a good Borges impersonation, but, as I'm sure my father would say, you can't outdo history, stuff like this happened, worse stuff. I much prefer Shalamov.

    26. Hea raamat igal juhul, kui mingigi ülevaade või nö linnulennuline tutvustus anda, siis ütleksin, et see on kummaline kombinatsioon Solženitsõnist ja Kivirähkist. "Mitme keele, kultuuri ja religiooni ristteel elanud Serbia kirjaniku Danilo Kiši (1935–1989) romaan alapealkirjaga “Seitse peatükki ühist ajalugu”. Süngetes ja samas absurdimaigulistes lugudes XX sajandi algupoole Ida-Euroopa poliitilisest silmakirjalikkusest ja enesehävitamisest on tubli annus mängulisust ning fakti [...]

    27. Este libro de Danilo Kiš resultó ser una gratísima sorpresa, de esos libros que me ponen a pensar en cuántas grandes obras poco conocidas quedarán por ahí para ser descubiertas.Se trata de un conjunto de historias cortas sobre el totalitarismo político y el comportamiento de la maquinaria hacia aquellos cuyo delito es pensar distinto o aquellos que simplemente ya no le son útiles al régimen; además de una historia sobre totalitarismo religioso con la Inquisición en la Francia de 1330 [...]
