Diario de un escritor by Fyodor Dostoyevsky PDF

«Esta obra singular, concebida por el autor como interludio entre novelas o trabajo preparatorio para El adolescente y Los hermanos Karamázov, es imprescindible para conocer y comprender al escritor y a los angeles personality. » Jesús García Gabaldón, El País.

A raíz de aceptar los angeles dirección de l. a. revista El Ciudadano, comenzó a redactar el que habría de ser su libro más own, extraño y desconocido. En Diario de un escritor el gran novelista ruso privilegia su compromiso ethical con los sucesos más acuciantes de su tiempo, a través de una entreverada mezcla de géneros –autobiografía, ficción, ensayo, crónicas judiciales, necrológicas, estampas de costumbres, breves tratados sobre el carácter nacional-, de l. a. que resulta un experimento de arte crucial, un triunfo de l. a. pasión por los angeles libertad humana.

En esta selección del inmenso cajón de sastre que es el Diario, impecablemente confeccionada y traducida por Víctor Gallego, se ha prescindido de consideraciones y polémicas hoy trasnochadas. Dos temas obsesivos, profundamente dostoievskianos, recorren sus páginas: los malos tratos a los niños en los angeles familia y las causas de los suicidios. Junto a l. a. ardorosa defensa de los angeles piedad y l. a. justicia, se encuentran también aquí los mejores relatos del autor: «La mansa», «El sueño de un hombre ridículo», «El mujik Marei» y, en especial, «Bobok», que constituye, según Bajtin, «casi un microcosmos de toda su obra».

And you got to be in his senses, so you got to see more. He’s using all six and a half senses at once, which can drive you crazy. But he shared it with us, which was nice of him to do. ” Just knowing him could land you in some funny spots, make the world turn Wallace-ish—embarrassing, surprising, alive. When David finished Infinite Jest, he enrolled Conn in a tiny band: product testers, the literary focus group he mailed the manuscript to. She read back-and-forthing to work on the subway. The stack of book, the pile of novel, riding next to her in its own seat.

There are parts of it that I think are good. But it’s—I wince. Even at signings, when people bring it up to sign. I think that, “if it wasn’t for that brief, It’s-trendy-to-be-young thing …” You’re probably a little too young to have benefited from it, ’cause that was really like the mid-’80s. The paperbacks? And they did just enough hardcovers that they could say … Post Jay McInerney. Yeah … It seems to me rather an odd thing to bring out again, that—because it was a totally different kind of fiction.

In New York on publishing trips, David bunked with Franzen. This was the just-before-fame moment, when a writer is still picking up his own expenses. “When he used to come stay with me—this was before he got his diet sorted out—as far as I could tell, he subsisted on those cellophane-wrapped Blondies from delis and chewing tobacco.
