One thought on “می خواستم چیزی بهت بگم”

  1. When I try to look at life through the prism of Alice Munro's wisdom and perspective, I see the good in the understandably bad and vice versa; I find the mundane, magnificent. She deconstructs the ordinary with a sedate deference, a tranquility that is as sage-like as it is incredible. She tells me that the ache of grief can be dulled by the guilt resulting from an impulsive mistake, that there's a triumph in taming the throes of an impotent, unreciprocated love, that there are occurrences which [...]

  2. لا أحب تلك النوعية من القصص القصيرة التي يسهب فيها الكاتب في الوصف و سرد تفاصيل لا مبرر لها، بفترض في القصة القصيرة التكثيف و الأختصار و التركيز على الأحداث لا الوصف المبالغ فيهنجمتان لا أكثر لقصة أعجبتني

  3. أتذكر جيداً أني كنت في أشد السعادة لفوز الكاتبة اليس مونرو بجائزة نوبل لعام 2013، ربما يرجع سبب سعادتي لانحيازي الواضح للقصة القصيرة -ذلك الفن المهمل على السواء من الكتاب العرب و الأجانب-على حساب الرواية التى يحظى كتابها بنصيب الأسد-أو بالنصيب كله-من الجوائز العالمية الهامة، [...]

  4. There are some gems in here – the sinister title story, the terrifically funny "Material," the great anti-romance "How I Met My Husband," the lyrical "The Found Boat," the poignant "The Ottawa Valley" – but this feels like a transition book in Munro's early career, caught between the brilliant Lives Of Girls And Women (1971) and Who Do You Think You Are? (1978).A few literary experiments here haven't aged well. But "Material" is one of her strongest stories – a great look at how artists tr [...]

  5. Magistrale. Inquietante. Schietta e profonda. La narrazione della Munro è tagliente, affilatissima e pura. Una lama di ceramica, sul bianco della quale, di volta in volta, risaltano come gocce di sangue sentimenti feriti, turbamenti adolescenziali, domande impudiche, ricordi laceranti e taciuti, oscurità dell'animo, innocenze frantumate. Un campionario di vicende umane basilari e simboliche. Con calma soave, misurata, sapiente, solo apparentemente istintiva, la Munro incide le tumefazioni dell [...]

  6. ”Me ne sto seduta a guardare le gigantesche onde marroni di aperta campagna sollevarsi ai piedi dei monti, e piango le mie lacrime monotone, disgustate. La vita non assomiglia alle storie vagamente ironiche che amo nei libri, sembra piú una serie tv, di quelle in onda la mattina. La banalità può far piangere come qualsiasi altra cosa.”Una potenza narrativa consona alla forma del racconto: questa è la prima cosa che penso dopo aver finito la mia seconda esperienza con Alice Munro.In un [...]

  7. Non sono d'accordo con alcuni critici che definirono, al tempo, questa raccolta una delle sue meno riuscite. La stessa Munro, nel 1981, in un'intervista sembrò sminuirla salvando solo tre racconti: La valle dell'Ottawa, Materiale e Vento d'inverno. D'altra parte ho avuto modo, avendo letto tutta l'opera di Alice Munro, comprese le antologie e saggi a lei dedicati, che Munro non è la migliore giudice della sua opera. Nell'antologia formata da 17 racconti (Lasciarsi andare, 2006) scelti da lei, [...]

  8. How I Met My HusbandAlice MunroThis is the first short story that I read by the author. From what I learned about her she is writing about something she knows a farm girl. Munro was raised on a farm in southwestern Ontario.The story is about Edie who was also raised on a farm. Edie was not doing well in high school and quit after being offered a job by Dr. Peebles the vet visiting her family’s farm who said, “his wife was looking for a girl to help.” Mrs. Peebles and the doctor have two ch [...]

  9. When Alice Munro received the Noble Prize, I was curious to read a collection of her stories. I had no previous exposure to her. I chose this collection rather randomly and didn't even notice the 1974 original publication date. Other reviewers have expressed that this is not their favorite collection. Others have commented on the limited scope of plot and character. There certainly is a theme and a consistency among the stories. I'm thinking, perhaps, I should try a more recent collection (and a [...]

  10. Tập truyện với không khí tỉnh lẻ, về những con người và những chuyện nhỏ nhặt, vụn vặt, về những cuộc đời có vẻ như lặng lẽ, không có gì đáng nói. Thế nhưng Alice Munro luôn nhìn ra một cái gì đó bên dưới những cuộc đời tưởng như lặng lẽ ấy: có thể là sự ganh tị, là sự phản bội, hay ngờ vực; hoặc cũng có thể chỉ là những hoài niệm về tuổi trẻ. Alice Munro cho thấy rằn [...]

  11. وجدت القصص السبع الاولى أكثر جاذبية واثارة للاهتمام من الخمس الاخيرة. قصصي المفضلة (كيف التقيت زوجي/ المشي على الماء/ قل لي نعم أو لا /مغامرة القارب) . الطريقة التي تكتب بها مونرو تزرعك في قلب القصة، تحرص على تعريفك بالشخصيات بماضيها وحاضرها وتطلعاتها وتعريفك بالمكان وباختصار [...]

  12. Una cosa che volevo dirti da un po' è una raccolta di racconti del 1974, ma uscita in Italia solo l'anno scorso.E' una raccolta in cui la scrittrice canadese si rivela ancora volta una delle migliori nel suo genere. Anche qui le protagoniste sono mogli, figlie, mamme, zii, nipoti, donne ci cui la Munro è bravissima a scandagliare ogni aspetto.Dai racconti in cui si concentra sulla tematica della maturità, la vecchiaia sino al rapporto tra fratello e sorella, o anche nel rapporto genitori - fi [...]

  13. Biệt tài của bà là nhìn thấy được những thứ ẩn sâu dưới cái lớp vẻ ngoài tưởng chừng bình thường, êm ả; đó có thể là nỗi bất an, sự xấu tính, thậm chí là tình yêu mà nhân vật cố tình giấu đi. Đọc Munro để thấy rằng, đôi lúc viện hàn lâm Thụy Điển có sự lựa chọn cũng đúng đắn (hoặc không) ;)

  14. The hub has got it into his head that I like Alice Munro. Well, he’s right about that, but it doesn’t mean he can keep on giving me Munro’s books ad infinitum. In the first place, theres a finite supply, and in the second place, I’ve already read most of them. When this turned up for me on xmas, I was sure I’d read it. But either my memory is worse than I think it is, or I had not. I wish I could say what it is that a love about Munro’s writing. She ignores the advice that a short st [...]

  15. una cosa che sospettavo da un po'racconti brevi e intensi, carichi di una tristezza di quelle subliminali, una tristezza che viene dall'esperienza e dalla rassegnazione, leggermente senza tempo, il momento sospeso che raccontano è sempre dall'ottica parziale di chi lo vive e ne ricorda le emozioni

  16. Occorre una mente sgombra di pensieri per apprezzare e godere di questi racconti, viceversa il rischio è di sentirsi molto appesantiti. Alcuni passaggi li ho trovati particolarmente oscuri ed ermetici, così da lasciare una sensazione di non capito.

  17. Till it came to me one day there were women doing this with their lives, all over. There were women just waiting and waiting by mail boxes for one letter or another. I imagined me making this journey day after day and year after year, and my hair starting to go grey, and I thought, I was never made to go on like that. So I stopped meeting the mail. If there were women all through life waiting, and women busy and not waiting, I knew which I had to be. Even though there might be things the second [...]

  18. Alice Munro è una certezza, non c'è niente da fare. Se tra una lettura e l'altra si ha voglia di ritornare ad un buon libro con la Munro si va sul sicuro. Questa raccolta di racconti è in realtà piuttosto datata, se non sbaglio si tratta della sua seconda pubblicazione, arrivata a noi solo adesso. Io l'ho trovata ben più interessante di tante sue opere più recenti, ogni racconto mi ha colpita per qualche suo aspetto, uno perché commovente, uno perché di una tristezza infinita, uno perch [...]

  19. I find it hard to write reviews of books that were just sort of middling. This was one. Of the several Munro collections I've read, they were all 4- or 5-stars. Not so here.She starts off strong with 3 stories I liked very much. They were about passions of youth that continued into adulthood, but weren't reciprocated. She often has a theme in her collections and I hoped for this. Alas, my hopes were dashed. I will say there is a lustiness about most of these, though, so there was that. From the [...]

  20. I love Munro's writing. She reminds me of all the complexities of a woman's relationships. As daughters, sisters, wives, lovers, friends. God, she writes sisterly characters exceptionally well. I'm especially drawn to stories of elderly sisters, often living together after one or the other is widowed. There is love, but there is all this history and conflict between them, as in the title story. Memorial is another sister story, about one sister arriving at the other's home for her teenage son's [...]

  21. Look back e Cercare una spondaLa citazione completa sarebbe stata Look back in anger, ottima, ma non c'è rabbia:youtube/watch?v=QEJjAQuesto è l'undicesimo libro di Alice Munro che leggo, anche se si tratta della sua seconda raccolta di racconti, quindi l'effetto è quello della telefonata di un'amica che vive in un'altra città e con la quale bisogna mettersi in pari sulle notizie principali e soprattutto su quelle di contorno: chi ha cambiato compagno, chi ha cambiato lavoro, chi ha cambiato [...]

  22. أليس مونرو الحائزة مؤخراً على جائزة نوبل عن القصة في أمر ربما يعتبر استثنائي لهذا الفن الذي ينتصر أخيراً. أتذكر تلك الدهشة التي أصبتُ بها حينما قرأت خبر فوزها قبل ثلاث سنوات تقريباً. لا شك أني حينها لم أعرف هذه الأليس؛ لكنني كنت مندهشاً بإعجاب لصوت القصة وهو يعتلي بقية الفنون [...]

  23. وكأن مفاتيح فن القصة القصيرة كلها آلت لهذه السيدة . عند مونرو تجد كل الأساليب الفنية الممكنة، والتي لم تكن قبلها ممكنة ايضا، في خدمة رؤيتها الأخلاقية الرفيعة. في كل قصة موضوع جديد وتبصر مذهل في النفس البشرية. اعتقد ان مونرو كانت تعيش وتفكر وتشعر من خلال كتابة القصص. مع كل مجمو [...]

  24. It's obvious in several cases that these stories were written in the seventies. This feels odd because it seems to me that in most Munro stories I have a sense that locating the events in a particular time, while certainly possible, is often irrelevant. There were also several interesting forays into first person narration: "Material," "How I Met My Husband," "Forgiveness in Families." Indeed, these were three of my favorites of the collection. Perhaps the best was the title story; there is the [...]

  25. There's an odd mixture of sadness and pleasure to be gained from reading Munro. Time and again, I finish her stories, and all I can think is "She *gets* it," which isn't really a sufficient way of encapsulating her artistry as a story-teller. I enjoyed this entertaining review by Jonathan Franzen, and agree with everything he has to say: query.nytimes/gst/fullpage"Something I've Been Meaning To Tell You" is Munro's second collection, and was published in 1974. Compared with her later stories, th [...]

  26. In Dance of the Happy Shades, Alice Munro found herself on several occasions visitor to a richly dilemmatic territory of storytelling that her mature work has since lived in. But, about as she was with those narratives that moved organically and to unbound endings, she stayed as often in places that were visibly finite and grounded by their styles in the time they were written. Something I've Been Meaning to Tell You looks like a conversation between these two different approaches, or between tw [...]

  27. Munro's second collection of stories (originally published in 1974) is a fine book, and the stories have all of Munro's essential signature elements -- a minimal plot, vivid and surprising (yet entirely apt) depictions of rural Canada, and deep character development obtained with a pasimonious expenditure of words. Ultimately, though, they pale in comparison to her later, more finished, works like those found in "Friend of My Youth" or "Runaway".

  28. This early collection of 13 stories by Alice Munro shows her at the top of her form. The stories seem artless, almost directionless, and then seize us by the hand and take us into a hall of illumination. A master of this form, she deserved the Nobel which was awarded to her last year. Oddly, in this book, I didn’t think the title story was the strongest. My favorites are “Material”, “How I Met My Husband” and “Marrakesh”. That said, Munro was incapable of writing a bad story.
