    A masterpiece out this June and I'll have to say on it then This is a fascinating contrast with perhaps my favorite novel LIFE AND FATE which is STALINGRAD's direct seuel STALINGRAD is the Iliad to that Odyssey Soviet censorship has made this a tamer conventional novel than it perhaps should have been but Grossman's accomplishment glimmers th

  3. says:

    I have long thought of reading “Life and Fate” but somehow knowing that there was a preuel made me hold of As such once this – finally – appeared in translation I had to read it Before doing so I read a biography

  4. says:

    Grossman's best known book Life and Fate was the seuel to this extraordinary novel Its history is complicated and in this new version the translator Robert Chandler has attempted to create a definitive edition from the various versions that survive three of which were published in Russia in the 1950s Both books were clear

    So once I had time to focus on ‘Stalingrad’ I found it to be something of a page turner I was able to crash through the last few hundred pages with my heartbeat leading the way At first was a little put off by the apparent communist propagandizingtoadying? throughout the book book but I came to see it as necessary background Just as boo

    As noted by the translator in the afterword Grossman envisioned 'Stalingrad' and 'Life and Fate' as one work so a proper e

    Despite the huge variation in depth this is of the most fascinating portrayals of character that I've ever read The novel represents the collective over the individual though in a reflection of the Communist Russia it evokes some individuals are important than others It's a tumble of thoughts and feelings and actions sometimes just a flash of a life sometimes It's confusing and messy and real but also alienating Even before the hardships

    With Life and Fate lingering on my tbr for far too long this was an automatic 'must read' when published in English for the first time It's a text with a complicated history and gestation so it's well worth reading the introduction and afterword to understand what it is exactly that we're reading here In some ways this is a magnificent failur

  10. says:

    A remarkable but grim read course anything dealing with the Eastern Front and Stalingrad makes for some heavy reading but in the grimness Grossman does comes up with some light hearted moments fo the soldiers and the civilians Vasily Grossman writes some powerful prose from the land nights the factories tracers lighting up the night

За правое дело

Ov el viejo marxista Mostovskói el científico Shtrum y Aleksandra Sháposhnikova cuya vitalidad triunfará sobre el mal y la muerte se interrogan acerca de la viabilidad del comunismo y el porué del fascismo mientras luchan por sobrevivir a los horrores de la guerr. With Life and Fate lingering on my tbr for far too long this was an automatic must read when published in English for the first time It s a text with a complicated history and gestation so it s well worth reading the introduction and afterword to understand what it is exactly that we re reading here In some ways this is a magnificent failure as a novel self consciously locating itself against War and Peace it offers a panorama of Soviet life leading up to and during the battle for Stalingrad Central is the extended Shaposhnikov family their friends and lovers But we flit between multiple character PoVs and pan in and out as Grossman sees fit sometimes we re deep inside someone s personal life then we retreat and don t return to that character again The canvas and character list is vast and as is the case in Tolstoy many are mere walk on characters so I wouldn t agonise too much about who is who Their brief page life is important their name isn t always Grossman s own viewpoint varies at some points he s a journalist chronicling the meetings between Hitler and his ministers for example at others he s pure novelist embedded with his fictional creations and writing in extended flashbacks to give them a personal history to which we are privy Then again an important character may die and we re barely given any reaction Most disconcerting is the lack of a defined story arc the battle for Stalingrad is clearly central but the pace of the novel is leisurely and there s no ending the battle is still raging the novel just finishes Of course we know the story continues with many of the same characters and an enlarged canvas in Life and Fate but this almost feels like a parallel text rather than a preuel We know that this was a novel that had a problematic relationship with the Soviet authorities and the censors but really it s hard to see why Grossman was a positive supporter of the Revolution and an rabid opponent of Hitler and fascism not least because he was Jewish and both emotions come through strongly Stalingrad was of course a turning point of the war and a significant achievement that marked the Russian psyche It s fascinating to witness an almost contemporary view of Stalin s war broadcasts Hitler s cabinet and their plans Above all what I loved about this book is the way it pays homage to human ideals this war is terrible the numbers of dead are exhausting yet somehow there s a kind of nobility that permeates the souls of these Russians as they resist the German onslaught fighting with courage and a clear sightedness for something bigger than the lone individual

En febrero de 1943 termina la batalla de Stalingrado Vasili Grossman ue ha estado en primera línea como corresponsal emprende su fresco novelístico sobre la contienda Por una causa justa cuya segunda entrega se convertirá en la mundialmente aclamada Vida y destino. It was about 3 years ago that I read Life and Fate At the time I looked for a translation of Stalingrad but the only non Russian language version available seemed to be in Spanish Although I greatly admired Life and Fate I was conscious throughout that I was missing out on the background of the characters Now that I ve read Stalingrad I have the opposite problem When encountering a character I kept trying to recall what happened to them in Life and Fate Sometimes I remembered but plenty of times I didn t I think I ll have to read Life and Fate again to find outThat curiosity alone shows the book is a success in that I care enough about the characters to want to re read the second part It s noticeable though that in both books Grossman doesn t hesitate to kill off his creations Apparently it was suggested he shouldn t do this uite so often but he argued that in the real life war the bombs didn t swerve to avoid likeable personsThere s a huge cast of characters and it s the style of the book to spend several chapters telling the story of one group before then focusing on another The novel therefore switches back and forth between them with sometimes long gaps between each appearance of an individual Sometimes I found it hard to recall a particular backstory and had to refer to a list of principal characters included as an appendix One of Grossman s favourite themes that he continued in Life and Fate was the idea that the war revealed people s true natures A previously shy and diffident person might come to the fore or someone thought to be a misanthrope might show unexpected kindnessThere is one major weakness in the book and that of course is the extent to which it was affected by Stalinist censorship Under duress Grossman had to take out numerous passages and add in others It s often obvious where this has happened and the some of the affected sections make for laboured reading All translations are different from the original novel of course but there are particular issues with this one that are covered in an afterword that is worth reading Essentially there is no definitive version of this novel and the translation presented here is an amalgam of two of the versions that exist I m certainly glad that I ve read the book but the ravages of Soviet censorship mean that it doesn t match the uality of Life and Fate

review За правое дело

Cuando escribe Grossman es un hombre destruido por la guerra su hijo ha muerto en el frente y su madre ha sido asesinada en el gueto Los personajes principales componen un mosaico de lo ue era la sociedad soviética del momento El fanático Abarchuk el comisario Krím. So once I had time to focus on Stalingrad I found it to be something of a page turner I was able to crash through the last few hundred pages with my heartbeat leading the way At first was a little put off by the apparent communist propagandizingtoadying throughout the book book but I came to see it as necessary background Just as books from western societies tend to give precedence to individualism 1940s Soviet Union writers could eually see their world through idealized collectivist eyes This would be especially so when that world was under threat of destruction by nazism At times I did find certain parts a bit jarring wondering how they really fit in with the book as a whole or with what was going on around them Overall however the writing was powerful and often gripping I m not usually one to get excited about battle scenes but Grossman did a wonderful job of making things move I did also have an issue with the whole hero thing but then I m not from a society that dwells on the concept Probably works better for Russians and AmericansMaybe later I ll organize myself to write details about my thoughts The writing is such that I have had a myriad of war images going through my mind and a great many interesting dreams A good book Well worth the read I now have Life and Fate on order
