    One thought on “Amulet”

    1. History is like a horror story.The student youth of Mexico raised their fists in protest during the summer and fall of 1968, marching against the government towards the violent climax of the Tlatelolco Massacre on October 2nd. ¹ Student demonstrations were organized in response to the killings of several students by the police called in to repress a fight between gang members of two rival schools—the Mexican National Autonomous University (UNAM) and National Politechnical Institute (IPN)—an [...]

    2. When Only a Wedge Will DoI read this because I’m a lazy cheapskate.I bought it for $5 (reduced from $50) in a recent Borders sale.But I was looking for a relatively short wedgie between larger undertakings, the next of which will be Haruki Murakami’s “1Q84”.At 184 pages, it’s more of a novella than a novel (although I’ve never really understood or cared much for the distinction).What’s important for me is how much the author put into those pages and how much we the readers get out [...]

    3. "This story breaks away from its box" Roberto Bolaño destroys the reader’s preexisting expectations, as what the reader sees is rarely what he gets. I’ve only previously read "Los Detectives Salvajes" before, and was immediately happy to see that this was an extension of that novel, or, more accurately, it works as a companion piece. I love this kind of stuff! Complimentary works are extremely difficult to pull off, as one bad novel might pollute the other one. (Take for instance the Hannib [...]

    4. “I am in the women’s bathroom in the faculty building and I can see the future, I said, in a soprano voice, as if I were being coy.I know that said the dreamy voice, I know that. You start making your prophecies and I’ll note them down.”I found this book very difficult to come to terms with at times which is based around the year 1968 in Mexico City, be it the future, the past or the present which are all thrown in for good measure to confuse a poor literary individual such as myself.The [...]

    5. I want to give this book five stars, but since I didn't give Savage Detectives or 2666 five stars I feel it's only fitting to give this four stars. A lot of people gush about Bolano, so much that it's enough to turn off other people from him. That said, there are quite a few people who really dislike Bolano mostly because hipster's and others were all over him (but were they really? It seems to me like Bolano-mania is over and now it's safe to come out and read his work in peace, but I could be [...]

    6. ذكريات مبعثرة وغير مرتبة زمنيا في حياة أوكسيليو لاكوتور, تتذكرها وهي مختبأة في إحدى كليات جامعة المكسيك بعد اقتحام القوات الحكومية للجامعة في سبتمبر 1968 لفض المظاهرات واعتقال الطلاب والأساتذةتحكي عن الأصدقاء والشعراء في المكسيك والسياسة في أمريكا اللاتينيةصديقها الشاعر ا [...]

    7. Nedavno sam gledala neku emisiju u kojoj se autor, eksperimenta radi, pod kontrolisanim uslovima i pred kamerama, podvrgao nekom ritualu Inka (recimo) koji za cilj ima konekciju sa Suštinom Bića Univerzuma (kao takvog!). Naravno, sve se vrtelo oko neke retke travke, ubrane na samom vrhu besputno udaljene litice, pa se to onda sušilo u, recimo, gornjem levom uglu potkrovlja sojenice u kojoj žive tri žute mačke i četri žene sa po šest nožnih prstiju (sve četri device, razume se), pa se [...]

    8. "Amajlija" je dovoljno kratka da se pročita u cugu i dovoljno hipnotička da tako i treba da se pročita. I mnogo znači - hoću reći, meni znači - što Bolanjo piše tako kako piše, od prve rečenice navali na čitaoca kao teška konjica u Aleksandru Nevskom i zahteva njegovu celokupnu pažnju.Strukturno je roman pomalo nezgodan (bar za one koji vole klasičan zaplet) jer se ne vidi odmah da je koncipiran kao niz ulančanih i ne sasvim čvrsto povezanih celina koje spaja samo pripovedačica [...]

    9. When I read the blurb of this novel I laughed. "This is so Bolaño," I thought. A woman recounts her colourful life in Mexico but she's telling us all this whilst hiding from members of a right-wing army who have just invaded the university in which she works. Is that Bolaño enough for you?This might be one of my favourite Bolaño novels. The prose is near lucid but doesn't fall into any of the traps that Monsieur Pain did and is just short enough to keep your attention through any of the more [...]

    10. This is going to be a horror story. A story of murder, detection and horror. But it won't appear to be, for the simple reason that I am the teller. Told by me, it won't seem like that. Although, in fact, it's the story of a terrible crime.I do not know enough about Mexican history to really grasp the "terrible crime" that is the focus of this story, or its implications on the Mexican memory (though I have read a little since finishing the book). Amulet is an attempt to come to terms with this cr [...]

    11. Okuyucu olarak çok hassas bir dönemimdeyim. İçi boş, basit ve ya tam tersi çok ağdalı şeylerden sıkılıveriyorum. Edebi üsluptan çok anlatılan şeyin niteliği önemli bu aralar. O yüzden laf kalabalığı yapan yazarların eserleri elimde büyüyor, bitmiyor. Bolano bu konuda tam olarak otorite. Bir konu bu kadar güzel, sade, özel anlatılabilir. Bir sayfayı iki kere okuduğum oldu çünkü olayı anlatma, metaforize etme şekline hayran kaldım. Kelime kelimesine okuyup, her [...]

    12. Μάλλον ο Μπολάνιο είναι από εκείνους που θα τους αγαπήσεις και όταν το κάνεις θα σε αγαπήσει και εκείνος πίσω ίσως λίγο περισσότερο, απ'όσο φανταζόσουν. Θα σε πάρει από το χέρι και θα σου ζητήσει να μην φοβηθείς και να αφεθείς και να ανακαλύψεις. Το Φυλαχτό είναι το φυλαχτό π [...]

    13. The Desire of the Hysteric"And although the song that I heard was about war, about the heroic deeds of a whole generation of young Latin Americans led to sacrifice, I knew that above and beyond all, it was about courage and mirrors, desire and pleasure."These are lines from the last page of Bolano's novel, containing in them one of the many keys for reading this masterpiece, a masterpiece that hovers between confusion, terror, and poetry.Eli Evans in Bookslut rightly argues that Latin America or [...]

    14. Leo a Bolaño con parsimonia y gusto, pero también con cautela, estando consciente de la barbarie incrustada en el fondo de sus novelas, las cuales siempre concluyen con poetas muertos o figuras consagradas de la literatura en aprietos. Leo Amuleto desde una perspectiva más o menos asidua, conociendo los motivos literarios a los que constantemente Bolaño va y viene, sabiendo además que su obra es un volcarse sobre sí misma a través de un ejercicio metaliterario. Siento que nuestro chileno- [...]

    15. "And although the song that I heard was about war, about the heroic deeds of a whole generation of Latin Americans led to sacrifice, I knew that above and beyond all, it was about courage and mirrors, desire and pleasure. And that song is our amulet."The writing for this book is absolutely beautiful, that is honestly the top thing that sticks with me. The whole book is so beautifully written I wish I spoke Spanish to read it in its original form.I'm so glad I read this twice because it was much [...]

    16. رواية بولاينو أشبه بأغنية رقيقة لرفاق دربه تروى على لسان سيدة أطلق عليها الرفاق أم الشعر المكسيكية التي تروى قصة معرفتها بالشعراء وتسكعها معهم وخدمتها لهم خلال ذروة حركة احتجاج الشباب و الذي كانت فيه الحكومة المكسيكية تستخدم العنف في الجامعات وتلجأ إلى القتل والضرب في الوق [...]

    19. Cum poate să scrie omul ăsta! Senzaţia e ca şi cum te-ai arunca într-o apă curgătoare şi, în timp ce te scufunzi în lichidul rece, observi în detaliu tot ce se petrece în lumea de dedesubt.

    20. Roberto Bolano'nun Can Yayınları'ndan çıkan, Zeynep Heyzen Ateş tarafından çevrilmiş "Tılsım"ı ile bu ay ikisi genç birisi vefat etmiş üçüncü Latin Amerikalı yazarımı okudum. Hepsinden memnun kaldım ve gerçekten edebiyat / yazın anlamında aşmış olduklarını bir kez daha gördüm. Sadece yazmak üzerine nice dersler barındırıyorlar. Bolano'nun Seda Ersavcı tarafından çevrilen "Lümpen Roman"ını okumuştum. Açıkcası beni zorlamış, içine girmekte zorlanmı [...]

    21. Talking About Novels as a Way of Writing After the NovelThis book really stays in your mind! I hadn't thought I would write a review, because Bolano is the Latin American author du jour in North America. But this novel has genuine staying power. The central image -- a woman cowering in the women's room on the fourth floor of the Philosophy and Literature building in UNAM in Mexico City during the police incursion -- is itself very memorable, but really it's her inner monologues, dreams, and hall [...]

    22. Μια αγωνιώδης, πηχτή ιστορία ενός σκοτεινού καιρού που φωτίζεται μονάχα απ' την αντανάκλαση της σελήνης. Αλλά και μια σπουδαία μεταφραστική στιγμή του Κρίτωνα Ηλιόπουλου. Ο συγγραφέας των συγγραφέων, ο Roberto Bolaño, εξασκείται με την γνώριμη, μεγάλη του τέχνη στις αποχρώσεις τ [...]

    23. sabitfikir/elestiri/anndeki yazımız:İnkar etmenin alemi yok, tuvalette kitap okuduğunuzu biliyoruz. Peki, bir tuvalette 13 gün mahsur kalacağınızı bilseniz yanınıza hangi kitabı alırdınız? Siz düşünedurun, Roberto Bolaño’nun Tılsım’ında Auxilio Lacouture, başına geleceklerden habersiz üniversitenin tuvaletinde Pedro Garfias’ın şiirlerini okuyordu. Tam o sırada, Meksika’nın başkenti Meksiko’da 68 hareketinin tırmanacağını, on bin kadar gencin, “Olimpi [...]

    24. Realized I hadn't yet read this although I've had it for years in part because the year "2666" is mentioned in this novel, not 2666. Toward the end, a few pages of twisted prophecies appear that reveal the years in which famous writers are reincarnated and/or lose their last reader in the 21st century (eg, Kafka in 2046). Many exemplary Bolano bits, including the answer to the question "how was Che Guevara in bed?" But in general it reminded me why I put down "The Savage Detectives" a few years [...]

    25. Wenn ich mit einem so dünnen Büchlein gar so lange brauche, dann habe ich meistens ein Problem. Zuerst muss ich gestehen, dass ich ein Faible für lateinamerikanische Autoren habe, seitdem ich Gabriel Garcia Marquez 1982, als er Literaturnobelpreisträger wurde, entdeckt habe. Anschließend habe ich einige Autoren aus diesem Kultukreis regelrecht verschlungen und fast alle genossen. Mir kommt vor, fast alle südamerikanischen Autoren schreiben wunderschön, der Plot und die Sprache haben meist [...]

    26. "Caminaban hacia el abismo. Creo que eso lo supe desde que los vi. Sombra o masa de niños, caminaban indefectiblemente hacia el abismo.""Los niños, los jóvenes, cantaban y se dirigían hacia el abismo. Me llevé una mano a la boca, como si quisiera ahogar un grito, y adelanté la otra, los dedos temblorosos y extendidos como si pudiera tocarlos. [] Así pues los muchachos fantasmas cruzaron el valle y se despeñaron en el abismo. Un tránsito breve. Y su canto fantasma o el eco de su canto fa [...]

    27. A wonderful long short story which captures the nature of dreams by compression, displacement of images, time slippages and identity shifts, most of all by metaphors in the broadest sense - those that clash and compound separate discourses, or confound, all disturbing historical stability. That the 'dream' expands from the tiles and watery sounds of a ladies' toilet in a university department of philosophy and literature adds via its literal banality (although the tiles are also hieroglyphs)to a [...]

    28. حاولت بأقصى ما لدي من طاقة أن أحب الكتاب و الكاتب الذي انتظرت طويلاً أن يترجم أحدهم رواياته إلى العربية. ربما لم تكن البداية موفقة مع هذه التعويذة خصوصاً و أنها ليست بقيمة روائع بولانيو ( 2666 ) و ( التحريون المتوحشون ). و لكن طمأنتني مقولة الكبير بورخيس التي تذهب إلى أن بعض الكتب [...]

    29. bolano's characters are some of the most beautiful. they miraculously avoid sentimentality while achieving a too-beautiful-to-speak-of romanticism -- though reducing them so is an error, that quality he gets really does tear me up his characters remind me of the vow of poverty monastics make. it isn't a negative vow--at least not for the nun. it is in fact a positive one, one that moves the renunciate closer to the divine. bolano's poets and losers and mothers are an equal type. and one way to d [...]

    30. "This is going to be a horror story. A story of murder, detection and horror. But it won't appear to be, for the simple reason that I am the teller. Told by me, it won't seem like that. Although, in fact, it's the story of a terrible crime." Robert Bolano's Amulet starts on this curiously ominous note. A recollection of Latin American history, its literature, and its people in the violent and turbulent decades between 1960 and 1980 could have been bitter and horrific and cynical, but it isn't. A [...]
