For me all works by a Nobel Prize in Literature winner should be gems Methinks that getting this prize is the highest honor that any writer on this earth can dream about So since I have turned into a voracious reader I have been sampling a work or so of the past Nobel laureates So far I’ve read Sienkiewicz 1905 Hamsum 1920 Mann 1929 Hesse 1946 Faulkner 1949 Hemingway 1954 Jimenez 1956 Camus 1957 Checkhov 1958 Pasternak 1958 Neruda 1971 Bellow 1976 Caneti 1981 Maruez 1982 Golding 1983 Gordimer 1991 Morrison 1993 Saramago 1998 Grass 1999 Naipaul 2000 Coetzee 2003 Jelinek 2004 Lessing 2007 Llosa 2010 I did not know that I’ve already read at least 23 books by Nobel laureates It sure made my life richer not in monetary amount but by the wisdom their books impart to their readers After all the Prize is now awarded both for lasting literary merit and for evidence of consistent idealism on some significant level In recent years this means a kind of idealism championing human rights on a broad scale Hence the award is now arguably political according to Wiki Thus unless Murakami and Coelho write something on politics they may not have a chance for a Nobel trophy soonHere comes my 24th Nobel author Imre Kertesz Boy he sure is political Fatelessness is about his experience in the concentration camps during Hitler’s reign Holocaust He was a young boy at 17 when he was asked to go to Auschwitz He lied about his age unknowingly saving his own life Children less than 18 were killed as they were deemed unfit to work In this book he narrated in present tense and this made a lot of difference compared to the early Holocaust autobiographical books that I read Anne Frank and Victor Klemperer I had that feeling of being right there in the camp; seeing what the boy Gyorgy Koves 15 was witnessing The other things that made this different were 1 that Kertesz described the experience in a detached way as if he was experiencing something ordinary Something that happens in everyday life Factual No ranting No philosophical musings No tearful revelations His trip to Auschwitz was just like a trip to his work place; 2 having said that Kertesz even felt happiness while in the camps as he ended the book with ”Yes the next time I am asked I ought to speak about that the happiness of the concentration camps” Although all works at one point in time suck we sometimes also get happiness from them rightNevertheless this is a chilling read Those harrowing descriptions of Auschwitz still sent chills to my bones and I caught my hand bracing onto my mouth as if preventing myself from shouting while reading 4 stars to you Mr KerteszLooking forward to reading the other books I have in my tbr by the other Nobel laureates Kipling 1907 Tagore 1913 Lewis 1930 Galsworthy 1932 Buck 1938 Gide 1947 Eliot 1948 Pound 1949 Satre 1964 Kawabata 1968 Beckett 1969 Boll 1972 White 1973 Singer 1978 Mafouz 1987 Paz 1990 Oe 1994 Pinter 2005 Pamuk 2006 and Le Clezio 2008 How well do you know the Nobel laureates I included two writers who literary critics think should not be there Can you tell me who they are Some people say they are deserving but they were caught in the political sentiments during the time that they were supposed to win

Imre Kertész ist etwas Skandalöses gelungen die Entmystifizierung von Auschwitz Es gibt kein literarisches Werk das in dieser Konseue. Nobel prize winner Imre Kertész survived stays in both the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps While he was there I have no doubt that he suffered a great deal—both physically and psychologically—so I was understandably I think hesitant to dislike his semi autobiographical Holocaust novel Fatelessness It seems at the very least very inconsiderate of me to criticize his book for failing to 'entertain' me Entertainment is a strange nebulous word Are we entertained in whatever sense when we watch The Sorrow and the Pity How about when we read Elie Wiesel's Night I would argue that yes we are Admittedly this is an entertainment only dimly related to that alleged enjoyment afforded by a rerun of The King of ueens but it is a diversion that intends to please its audience Now don't only think of pleasing as giving an audience what it asks for but also think of it as giving an audience what it didn't even know it wanted to begin withWhen we think about the Holocaust unless we are aberrant or sadistic we are unlikely to be pleased by it in and of itself but when we read a text in the postmodern sense of texts including films and art etc concerning the Holocaust if it is well done we will be pleased by it Why Because it gives us insight into human experience even of the horrific kind or it helps us to understand our world in some small way or alternately it helps us to experience what is incomprehensible about our world or it offers a critiue or diagnosis of the systems in our culture which enable things like Holocausts which may inform our future actions or behavior And of course there are other possibilities of pleasures we might derive from unpleasant subjects—some certainly less honorable It isn't without an acute awareness of how it sounds that I claim that Imre Kertész's Fatelessness didn't please me It sounds terrible doesn't it As if I asked for the monkey to dance for me and it failed to dance But don't confuse these pleasures with the baser forms Fatelessness is unsuccessful because it has nothing much to say but it manages nevertheless to say it at great length It's little than a neutered story of a boy spending time in concentration camps There's no insight; there's no emotional weight; there's no humanity—besides which stylistically speaking the Wilkinson translation of Kertész is a mess The sentences are long dissected by countless clauses phrases and parenthetical asides and often pointless They accumulate detail but not purpose Perhaps this is a commentary on life—an existential grammar—but if so how trite Our suffering is long and meaningless At only 260 pages this book feels long and meaningless itself An efficacious art

SorstalanságNz ohne zu deuten ohne zu werten der Perspektive eines staunenden Kindes treu geblieben ist Wohl nie zuvor hat ein Autor seine Figur Sc. Kertesz won the Nobel prize for literature for this book and it is really not surprising hence the five stars I would also advocate that the book be called Timeless as well for it is one of those books which has an aura of being beyond time It could have been written immediately after the end of World War II or it could have been written yesterday and there is little way of knowing at least through the text when this story was made its way onto paper because it is a single voice in the immense faceless march of European history where annonymity became the fate of so many individuals While not written as an autobiographical exercise Fateless is partly an examination of Kertesz's own experiences in both Auschwitz and Buchenwald The introductory chapters highlight how uickly and easily Gyuri accepted the plight of the local Jewish community and while it is not upbeat it is surprisingly sanguine and perhaps even optomistic in places Once Gyuri arrives at the gates of Auschwitz Birkenau however it is easy to anticipate that the tone of the book will shift dramatically I did not expect much happiness from there on inThe brilliance of this book is its clarity and tone and the fact that it ascribes a voice and emotions to a series of events which are widely documented but little understood on the level of the individual The sheer scope of the atrocity freuently annhilates the notion of I and replaces it with them or allThe narrator Gyuri presents an astounding first hand account of his existance in the labour camps Gyuri rarely mentions his family or considers the likely fate of his fellow Jews beyond the walls of whichever labour camp he is interred in at the time This makes his experience all the profoundly personal showing how all his energies are focused on making sense of his own plight and ensuring that he stays alive The last chapter of the book also highlights in a startling way how those who were not subjected to time in the labour camps could never grasp the full scope of the horror At a time when everything in their own world had carried on almost as before lightly dressed in a thin veneer of normality how could they believe that such death and suffering had found a common place just beyond the fringes of their community
