A Morte de Carlos Gardel by António Lobo Antunes

By António Lobo Antunes

António Lobo Antunes, implacável, dá-nos a conhecer uma família e os que em seu torno gravitam, num retrato árido e merciless, que leva o leitor, pelo menos, a repensar as relações entre os homens num Portugal prestes a entrar no século XX. Uma Lisboa marginal, decadende, que acolhe um pequeno universo com personagens que giram em torno da sua própria solidão e isolamento. Um pai ingénuo que acredita que Gardel não morreu naquele acidente aéreo, e uma tia obstinada dirigem-se a um medical institution para velar um jovem heroínomano em estado de coma.

Två humoresker

Två humoresker består av två humoristiska noveller: Den främmande damen och herrn lower than sängen som gavs ut redan 1848 och Krokodilen som tillkom 1865 i ett nytt skede av Dostojevskijs karriär och liv.

De båda berättelserna visar på en relativt okänd sida av författaren i egenskap av farsartade, lättsinniga komedier. Något som är sällsynt i den i övrigt djupa och tungsinta produktionen. De allvarliga, psykologiskt slående och grundliga personporträtten som är Dostojevskijs signum får här stå tillbaka för en gäckande satir.

Den främmande damen och herrn below sängen är en farsartad berättelse om misstanke, bedragna äkta män och omotiverad svartsjuka dragen until eventually sin yttersta spets. males inte minst kretsar berättelsen kring den dråpliga situationskomik som kan uppstå då två personer ska gömma sig less than en och samma säng.

Krokodilen (fullständig titel: Krokodilen: En ovanlig historia eller en passage i passagen - En sannfärdig berättelse om hur en viss herre vart levande slukad av en krokodil i Passagen med hull och hår och vad följden blev av detta. ) är lika delar briljant som absurd berättelse: argsint, surrealistisk, hånfull och kanske det roligaste Dostojevskij skrivit. I denna korta historia visar Dostojevskij sitt förakt för socialism på ett för honom ovanligt direkt och öppet sätt. Den "sanna historien" handlar om en guy som plötsligt sväljs levande av en krokodil males som överlever och fortsätter att utföra sina plikter och predika socialistiska teorier inifrån krokodilens mage.

Sample text

While all the palaver was going on, her maid and I were looking each other over. She would peek at me, and I would get embarrassed because I had been staring and look away. Then she would look away and I would start staring again. She had been carrying three packages and a shopping basket when she came in, but she put them down and got out her fan, and fanned herself, and looked at me over the top of it. I kept thinking of how it would be if the two of us were out on a little boat of our own, sailing far away to someplace wonderful.

They were chained together in gangs because they were going to run away the first time they got a chance and everybody knew it. The guards sat in the shade with muskets in their laps, and yawned and tried to scratch under their armor, and once in a while one said something to someone else. But they did not sleep. They were soldiers, I found out later, and besides their muskets they had the long straight swords that soldiers call bilbos. The slave drivers were civilians, guys who knew (or were supposed to know) how stone walls ought to be built.
