    One thought on “A Condição Humana”

    1. La condition humaine = The Human Condition = = Storm in Shanghai = Man's Fate, André MalrauxMan's Fate (French: La condition humaine, "The Human Condition"), is a 1933 novel written by André Malraux. It was translated into English twice, both translations appearing in 1934, one by Haakon Chevalier under the title Man's Fate, published by Harrison Smith & Robert Haas in New York and republished by Random House as part of their Modern Library from 1936 on, and the other by Alastair MacDonald [...]

    2. Why would I give five stars to a book I did not enjoy, did not like, felt nothing special about and came very close to not finishing it? Because late in my life I had come to realize this: a translation can create and it can destroy. That the act of translating a literary work is not a neutral and mechanical act but a truly creative one. A bad translation can mangle a work beyond recognition; a good translation--as GR's Cynthia Nine attests vis-a-vis Coelho's regurgitations--is capable of turnin [...]

    3. کتابی که با مرگ آغاز و‌ با مرگ به پایان میپذیرد و همچون خون ریخته بر زمین دردناک است

    4. Poucas personagens haverá na ficção tão tragicamente isoladas como algumas de “A Condição Humana”; e sem dúvida que todas elas se vêem em situações extremas, nas quais a vida e a morte lhes surgem, não sequer como uma alternativa, mas como uma mesma versão do destino, em que a morte é menos escolhida que aceite. (Jorge de Sena, no Prefácio a esta edição)Em A Condição Humana a acção situa-se em Xangai, no ano de 1927, quando uma insurreição comunista é esmagada pelo Kuo [...]

    5. The novel concerns the communist upraising in Shanghai in 1927. The book works on several different levels. On one level it is an action novel featuring the siege, by communist and European insurgents, of a police station in Shanghai, political assassinations, and an arms hijacking. On a larger, more political level, it chronicles the machinations of Russia, the Kuomintang, European industrialists and bankers, and finally the nascent Communist party of China as they decide the fate of the insurg [...]

    6. A brilliant brilliant book that spoke to me of commitment, fidelity and belief, and the bond that are forged in shared struggles. These aspects are greatly magnified by placing the key characters on the losing side, thus hi-lighting the ever present moments in which choices have to be made, and responsibility taken once those decisions are enacted upon. This is all achieved without recourse to romantic, or heroic cliches, indeed there is a real warmth the emerges from the strong relations throug [...]

    7. Great book about the Chinese Civil War. It's not a chronicle, but a dramatisation of the few days surrounding a communist uprising against the regime and its foreign allies. The main characters are the party militants, led by Europeans, who have dedicated their lives to this violent ideology, and are determined to win or die trying. As is often the case, their lack of concern for their own wellbeing serves to justify their coldblooded mass calculations of the fate of others. It's a very well tol [...]

    8. The book that made Malraux famous. A story of revolution, and the endurance of humanity in the most despairing and inhumane conditions. The kind of story that's needed, now more than ever.There's a good book in here somewhere. Some of the scenes are incredibly vivid, but much is lost in translation. The prose is clunky, and some explosive scenes are ruined by bad phrasing.Very frustrating - this is the sort of thing that makes me want to learn French. Ah well.Recommended for die-hard revolutiona [...]

    9. My Review through liftingshadows.wordpress/2 Am terminat de citit Conditia umana a lui Malraux (vezi aici coperta). :D Trebuie sa recunosc ca lectura mi s-a parut greoaie in prima parte… dar lucrurile s-au fluidizat pe parcurs, totul terminandu-se in ton cu seninatatea lui Gisors. Am avut sentimentul ca ceea ce scrie autorul nu este deajuns pentru a intelege suficient contextul socio-economic si politic in care se desfasoara actiunea, dar imi parea ca eram provocat la a face investigatii de na [...]

    10. Goncourt Prix in 1933 (La condition humaine). Malraux's incurssion into the human's nature, his reflections on our destiny and our race's meaning is what (in my mind) constitutes the main value of this book.The novel is much more than just a history of the Communist crashing at the hands of Chiang Kai-shek's Kuomintang in 1927 Shanghai. Aside from capturing this historical moment which marked the split between the two political partners and the start of the Chinese Civil War, Man's Fate gave me [...]

    11. J'ai abandonné vers la page 120 sur presque 300. Pas inintéressant mais définitivement pas pour moi. Prix Goncourt 1933 mais sans doute à cause de l'actualité du thème traité (émeutes et soulèvements communistes en Chine) plus que de la qualité littéraire. Assez aride, beaucoup de détails sur l'organisation des soulèvements : plongée au coeur des groupuscules révolutionnaires. Il y a quelques beaux passages (questionnements de Tchen, réflexions sur l'absurdité des actions, de la [...]

    12. Andre Malraux, İnsanlık Durumu adlı eserinde, Şanghay kentinin 1927 yılında milliyetçi Kuomintang ordularınca ele geçirilmesi sonrasında, şehirde yaşanan komünist direnişin hikâyesini anlatır.Niye çalıştığını bilmeden günde on iki saat çalışan bir insan için, ne saygınlık, ne de gerçek bir yaşam mümkün değildirBir azınlığın içinde sersemler çoğunluktadırBir insanın en derinlerinde yatanla, onu hemen harekete geçirebileceğiniz şey aynı değildirİns [...]

    13. "Não acha que é de uma estupidez característica da espécie humana que um homem que só tem uma vida possa perdê-la por uma ideia?"

    14. Man's Fate (La Condition humaine) might be a classic example of a book that's more talked about than read. Having now finished it, I think I know why. Malraux had an appealing, Byronic, image. This somehow managed to survive late-life tenure as a Gaullist minister and pillar of the French establishment. Man's Fate was not Malraux's first book, but it is probably the one that first made him famous to a wider literary public, winning the Prix Goncourt in 1933. In terms of plot, it's a fictionalize [...]

    15. H Le Monde συμπεριέλαβε την ‘Ανθρώπινη μοίρα’ (La Condition Humaine) στα 100 βιβλία του Αιώνα∙ κι οι πιο σπουδαίοι και επιφανείς βιβλιοκριτικοί συμφώνησαν διαβάζοντας το τιμημένο με το βραβείο Γκονκούρ βιβλίο του Αντρέ Μαλρώ ότι το δίχως άλλο πρόκειται για αριστούργημα, για ένα έργο εμ [...]

    16. La condition humaine is a great existentialist novel written by the extremely flamboyant Andre Malraux who did and saw a great deal in his adventuresome life. In 1923, he was caught with art treasures stolen from Angkor Wat in Cambodia. After eight months in prison, he moved on to China where he worked with the Kuomintang. Later he would organize and command an air division on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. He served as a soldier in the French Army that was defeated by the Germans [...]

    17. Translated by Haakon M. Chevalier. I found this bleak analysis of the twentieth-century human condition, set during the Chinese Revolution, to be intermittently brilliant and boring. The philosophical musings on, well, man's fate --- human will as the prime mover, dismissal of all else --- were fascinating, but the book dragged at times, bogged down by somewhat stilted dialogue. On the other hand, the dramatic style was skilled: the dark tone of the text, with its descriptions of shadows and lig [...]

    18. Un récit douloureux, dédié à la souffrance et à la dignité humaine.  Bien que Malraux soit absolument brillant par bribes, le mélange du politique et de l'abîme de la conscience humaine a rendu la lecture particulièrement difficile.On se perd dans la révolution chinoise et les stratagèmes moins ou plus judicieux. Et c'est dommageEnfin, ce n'est pas un livre sur la condition humaine, mais le>> livre de celle-ci. Dans la même vague de la pensée française humaniste, Malraux se [...]

    19. Este é um daqueles livros que devemos ler na vida. Um dos imprescindíveis. A trama tem lugar em Xangai, ano de 1937, em que comunistas e as tropas de Chiang-Kai-Shek lutam pela poder. Porém não se trata de um livro que narre estes acontecimentos. Sim, também o faz, mas essa não é a intenção de Malraux. A sua intenção é mostrar-nos os homens, as suas escolhas e as suas hesitações. É questionar o que é a dignidade humana (e, claro, a condição humana). Fá-lo de forma despretensio [...]

    20. What can I say? Translated to Dutch by the author's friend Edgar Du Perron. Written in 1933. These are facts.This is, without doubt, the richest, most dense literature I have ever read. Every word seems to have meaning. Every sentence insists itself on the paper and is in a constant struggle with it's brethren to be the most beautiful and most meaningful one. Reading Malraux is not something you do for leisure. Ask Camus and Sartre (or Du Perron and Ter Braak). This is for those who want to grab [...]

    21. I didn't realise until I picked this up from the library that it was set in a violent struggle between the Chinese communists and Chiang Kai Shek's Kuomintang in 1927 (almost 20 years before the communists came to power). It covers a very short time period and focuses on only four or five main characters, mostly but not all communists.Historically, it's a very interesting book. As literature, I found it rather patchy. The best parts for me were where Malraux gets philosophical or delves deeply i [...]

    22. I remember loving this book when I read it in my twenties. I seemed then a terrifically romantic and dramatic rendering of what it means to part of a revolutionary movement. The opening chapter remains a knockout, but I'm afraid it otherwise hasn't held up that well. Malraux overwrites so many passages and seems to infects his characters with an existentialist dread. He tells rather than shows what they're feeling so that little of what the characters experience seems earned. I read this after r [...]

    23. Très soigné et "ambiental". La nuit sur Shanghaï est d'autant plus poétique que le mystère se mélange (ou bien se confond) à l'action révolutionnaire, ultime repaire de la dignité humaine avant la mort. Se relever devant le péril vous transfigure, vous redonne l'espoir. Néanmoins, les détails risquent de rendre confus si l'on n'est pas cent pourcent concentré sur les pages. Ce qui, paraît-il, a été mon cas. 3,4/5

    24. Bien que ce livre soit très court , il ne m'a interessé que par interstices extremement courts, et j'ai détésté la prétention de son auteur, ça n'est pas dur à lire, mais je ne vois vraiment pas son interret! Et pourtant c'est rare que je ne trouve pas de plaisir dans un classique, je crois que comme on dit en anglais "it's overrated!"

    25. Ok, I read this book twice! Once in high school and once last year. It is a masterpiece of French literature, admittedly!I did not like it the first time I read it, so I decided I would read it again, now that I am mature. I thought I would now have the wherewithal to "get it". Nah-ah!

    26. یکی ازبهترین اثاری که هر کسی ممکنه در زندگیش بخونه شخصیت پردازی بی نقص و موقیعتهایی به شدت انسانی.

    27. Malraux's fictional portrayal of an early Communist revolutionary attempt in Shanghai, China. Malraux packs a lot of action into 338 pages, with each character save one getting an ending. It is ironic that many of the characters attempting this overthrow of Chiang Kai-shek Nationalist regime are not themselves Chinese. Katov was Russian; Hemmelrich appeared to be German or Belgian; and Kyo was half Japanese and half French. The actual Chinese participants were mainly terrorists (like Ch'en). And [...]

    28. Como conhecer uma revolução por dentro, a mente de quem a organiza, mas também os seus desejos, anseios e esperanças. Dando-nos um retrato sobre a revolução comunista de xangai, malraux dá-nos uma visão sangrenta de uma massa de idealistas, unidos a uns quantos operários e camponeses que marcham sobre o domínio de uma china dominada por velhos poderes coloniais. Mas o autor deixa-nos sobretudo entender que uma revolução está muito para além de idealismos, de sonhos ou de princípio [...]

    29. This was my introduction to the notion of the "engaged man," and it was central (at the age of 22) to my developing sense of commitment to a revolution that now continues to recede from me. There was a sense, at the time, that our revolution would not ONLY foster social justice, but would usher in the age of a new humanity, and a new human. Communist Man would be unlike any other man. I comment now only because I have added to my list of 100 Best -- a stupid enterprise, I know, but kinda enterta [...]
