FREE DOWNLOAD Ö Wunschloses Unglück Of love anger admiration and a keen sense of history this slim book reveals Handke at his most lucid and direct It is the most moving and accessible work in his distinguished career; it is indispensable Bill Marx The Boston Glob. Barely remembered reading this in 1996 back when I read everything Handke had published Read a yellowed mass market paperback with a cartoon image of the author on the cover Three by Peter Handke Reread the novella in this snazzy 75 pg standalone edition for what felt like the first time really because Knausgaard recently mentioned it as a major influence This straightforward yet essentially scene less life story about Handke s mother s suicide gave Knausgaard a blueprint for how to write about his father s slow suicide by alcohol My painful memory of her daily motions especially in the kitchen Otherwise I love Handke s prose and unpredictable movement Loved the dissolution at the end into a string of memories observations uotations statements as in The Weight of the World an all time favorite He mentions going slowly so he doesn t lose his balance and maybe that s what I love about the prose and approach it tightropes across a crack in the cement with the sense that if he missteps what seems solid beneath his feet will give out and reveal itself as a long way down through empty air Like growing up after WWII in Austria his mother s slow dissolution and suicide is internalized it s something that he is his being an inheritance that doesn t express itself as a hyberbolic lie Also great stuff early on about poverty National Socialism penny pinching restraint true love the walls closing in a little by little and over time All of which might sound like dire reading but it s really an enjoyable uick read Someday I shall write about all this in greater detail

FREE DOWNLOAD Ö Wunschloses Unglück Pens A Sorrow Beyond Dreams the eminent Austrian novelist and playwright Peter Handke's reckoning with his mother's life which spanned the rise of the Nazis World War II and postwar suffering and death Both stark and lyrical full. What does it mean to write about Death not abstract death or death of some invented Other but Death in its most personal intimate self shattering form How when the act of writing of composition is inherently distancing can one write about that which is closest to us The relationship of Life to Death is that of Music to Silence how can we write about the difference between the silence before a note and the silence that followsThe Death of the Mother This is a hackneyed literary trope and a cliche ridden mud plain of endless soggy sticky narrative To speak of it is to uote To uote is to dissemble To dissemble is to betray In this short novella only 70 or so pages in length Handke attempts to write about his mother in the weeks after her suicide Tries and fails And yet his failing is a masterpiece It is a work of a writer attempting to controldelineatecontain the ending of this life and not succeeding I urge you to set aside an hour or two one evening and read this in one unbroken sitting
