One thought on “Η φόνισσα”

  1. Είμαι σίγουρη ότι για όλους τα 3 αστέρια που βάζω σε αυτό το βιβλίο μπορεί να θεωρηθεί ιεροσυλία.Για μένα τα 3 αστέρια είναι υπερ αρκετά για ένα τέτοιο έργο, για ένα τέτοιο θέμα.Το οποίο με εξόργισε. Με εξόργισε και η "Φόνισσα" και τα κίνητρα της και το θέμα και η εποχήΣτην ουσί [...]

  2. Η φόνισσα μου προκάλεσε αρνητικά συναισθήματα,αποστροφή αλλά και δυσαρέσκεια για τη θρησκοληψία της εποχής.Ακόμα όμως δεν έχω καταλήξει αν αντιπαθώ ή αν λυπάμαι την Φραγκογιαννού. Από την μία δεν διστάζει να δολοφονήσει τα μικρά κορίτσια, από την άλλη όμως η συμπεριφορά τ [...]

  3. When I learned that C.P. Cavafy and Odysseus Elytis both admired the prose of Alexandros Papadiamantis (1851-1911), I knew I had to read some of his work. Advised that his shorter pieces are much better than his novels, I read the collection Tales From a Greek Island and then the novella The Murderess, held to be his best work. In light of Elytis' leftist leanings, I was more than a little surprised to find that Papadiamantis was a religious reactionary, who objected to the emancipation of women [...]

  4. Όποιος μπορεί να προσπεράσει τον σκόπελο της καθαρεύουσας θα βρει μια αμείλικτη ιστορία σε ένα από τα πιο όμορφα έργα της ελληνικής λογοτεχνίας.

  5. Few Introductory words: India, my country, is notoriously known for many number of social evils among which the worst ones are meted out to women. The birth of a girl child is still considered to be a curse in many parts of India. The principal reason behind is the infamous dowry system. A girl when given in marriage has to be accompanied by lot of gifts - in gold, kind and money. If the dowry was not paid rightly, the bride might end up dead in the bridegrooms's house under doubtful circumstanc [...]

  6. I was introduced to Papadiamantis by my Greek Professor, who called him "the Dostoevsky of Greece." Though a lot of his earlier work is more influenced by French Romanticism, his later work (like The Murderess) is clearly more of a Russian-influenced animal. The Murderess is like a mini version of Crime and Punishment, but rural-Greek style from a woman's perspective. Substitute Raskolnikov with a 60+ year-old Greek grandmother and you'll be close to having an impression of this little novella.

  7. This is a charming little tale of a mother smothering and drowning babies, a mad brother stabbing his sister, and Harrison Ford-style adventures on Greek cliff-faces looking onto crashing death-waves below. Mr. Papadiamantis serves us a moral fable with oodles of suspense and terror, weaving a folky classical Greek yarn around a desperate on-the-run action narrative, told slowly and elegantly, with vitality and astonishment. Sublime little 19thC novella.

  8. Kitap henüz bitti ve ben Yunanistan'ın Dostoyevski'si olarak adlandırılan Papadiamantis'in 1903 yılında, Katharevusa lehçesiyle (Yunan halk dilini "temizlemek" amacıyla 18 19. ve 20. yüz yıllarda daha çok yazarlar, gazeteler ve resmi makamlar tarafından resmi dil olarak kullanılan lehçe) kaleme aldığı bu harikulade kısa romanını Türkçe okuyabilmek için 112 (yazıyla: yüz on iki) yıl geçmesi gerektiği gerçeğine inanamıyorum! (İlk baskı ve çeviri Şubat 2015) Bu ş [...]

  9. There are lots of examples through history when the distribution of power, or of resources or both, especially when the abuse of the have-nots is egregious, that radical events occur. Sometimes these are political. In this story they are personal.I don’t think it will be a historical first for GR types to hear that on a small, poverty stricken Aegean island, Skiathos, sometime in the 19th century (but from the introduction by the translator, sadly, not much has changed) women were horribly opp [...]

  10. Το βιβλίο αυτό δεν το λάτρεψα και ίσως να οφείλεται οτι το διαβασα σε σχετικά μικρή ηλικία.Γενικότερα δεν με τραβάει ο Παπαδιαμάντης,ούτε σε θέμα αφηγησης-γραφης,ούτε σε θεματα πλοκής(το τελευταιογιατί επιλέγει τους ήρωες του μέσα από πρόσωπα της καθημερινής ζωής,με τελεί [...]

  11. This is the beauty of Greek-Cypriot public schools: they make you read a book about a psycho lady in an island who flips out and starts murdering young girls (including her own grandaughters!) while you are trying to finish your last hellish trimester in high school, prepare for eniaies, prepare for proeisagwgikes, and figure what to do with the rest of your life. NIIIICEEEEE!!!!

  12. Η νουβέλα του Παπαδιαμάντη που γράφτηκε το 1903 θεωρείται από τα πιο σημαντικά έργα της ελληνικής πεζογραφίας,που εκφράζει την αντιπαράθεση στην ιδεολογία της τότε κοινωνίας με τον πιο σκληρό τρόπο.Η Φραγκογιαννού,η ηρωίδα του Παπαδιαμάντη μεγάλωσε σε μια πατριαρχική κοιν [...]

  13. Αν εξαιρέσουμε τη "δυσκολία" της καθαρεύουσας, η ιστορία αυτή ήταν σύντομη αλλά τόσο φρικιαστική που έχει χαραχτεί στη μνήμη μου για τα καλάΗ Φραγκογιαννού είναι χαρακτήρας που ίσως να ξεπερνά ΟΛΟΥΣ τους psycho killers του cinema σε φρικαλεότηταΑνατριχιαστική ιστορία, και όσο σκέφτ [...]

  14. Ήταν λίγο γατάκι που λέμε μπροστά στον Παπαδιαμάντη ο Χίτσκοκ.

  15. "The Murderess" is a novella about a woman, Jannis Frankissa, or Frankojannou, who has suffered poverty for her entire life and now despairs over her observation that each new child brought into the world is destined to endure the same privations. While watching over her newest grand-daugther, now nine days old and at risk of succumbing to poor health, Frankojannou struggles with sleep debt and growing doubts about the point of giving life in a difficult world. In his introduction, translator Pe [...]

  16. İlginç bir kitap. Arka kapağında çok güzel özetlenmiş aslında içeriği: "Ve yaşlı Hadula, sonunda her şeyin kökeni olan bir soruna da çözüm bulur: Yaşamak sorununa." Tabii bu çözüm, karanlık bir yol daha çok. Ancak Hadula'nın da sonu bu karanlık yolla örtüştüğünden kitap kendi içinde tutarlı diyebiliriz.Çevirmen Yasemin Aydın çevirinin zorluğundan bahsetmiş önsözde ve kitapta geçen Türkçe kökenli Yunanca sözcüklerin bir listesini sunmuş. Bence çok [...]

  17. dreamersandco/2012/06/Η Χαδούλα, η ηρωίδα της Φόνισσας είναι μια χήρα που ζει στη Σκιάθο, γνωρίζει τα πάντα σχετικά με τα βότανα που βρίσκει στα δάση του νησιού και έτσι βοηθά οικονομικά την οικογένειά της. Η ζωή στις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα δεν είναι καθόλου εύκολη για τις γυναίκες και η Χ [...]

  18. A woman’s lot is not a happy one, goes the old saying. Historically speaking, that much is undeniable. But these days? I don’t know. Being a man I am not qualified to say, really, although my experience of the world, and more importantly the testimony of women I know and have known, has gone some way to convincing me that there is still some truth in it. Certainly, when I was a kid I was aware that, as unpleasant as things were, being a boy I was afforded some level of respect and independen [...]

  19. Bu kitaba yüksek beklentilerle başladım. Özel bir nedeni yok, belki Jaguar'dan ve Özge Dinç'in elinden çıkması, belki üstündeki 'Yunanistan'ın Dostoyevski'si' ibaresi, belki de şahane kapağı sebebiyle. Beklentilerimi karşılayan, güzel bir başlangıcı da vardı. Farklı bir kültüre ve zamana bakması, o dönemde erkek bir yazarın kadınlığın güçlüklerini anlatması ilginçti. 1800'lerin ikinci yarısında bir erkek yazar tarafından yazılan bir romanda ezilen, kölel [...]

  20. This is a grim tale, as one old woman with almost mythic strength and determination decides to free all the girls in her village from wretched servitude by murdering each girl she finds. A novel of horror, it is yet a story of tenderness. The old woman doesn’t do this from rage, spite or revenge. She genuinely feels that she is helping. Even when others rise up against her and she is chased by those who seek to stop her, we cannot help but feel for her plight. In a world where one class or sex [...]

  21. Güzel bir fikirle yola çıkmış, devamı güzel getirilememiş bir kitap maalesef. Girişi insana umut vadediyor ancak ilerleyen sayfalarda olay örgüsü hep aynı ikilem etrafında dönüp duruyor. Böyle olunca da karakteri anlamak ve ona sempati beslemek olanaksız oluyor. Kitabın sonundaki hesaplaşma güzellik katsa da bütünü kurtarmaya yetmiyor. Belki arka fonda çalan güzel bir mandolin gibi okuma zevkini arttırıcı faktörlerle beslenirse daha güzel bir okuma olabilir ancak i [...]

  22. ​ Τη “Φόνισσα” τη διάβασα για πρώτη φορά στα 18 μου. Η αλήθεια είναι ωστόσο ότι τότε την “ψευτοδιάβασα”, καθότι μου είχε ξενίσει αρκετά η καθαρεύουσα. Ήταν όμως θέμα χρόνου να την πιάσω ξανά στα χέρια μου. Και φυσικά, τώρα που το έκανα, δεν το μετάνιωσα καθόλου. Τη θεωρώ πλέο [...]

  23. Η ΦόνισσαΈνα βιβλίο το οποίο έπρεπε να είχα διαβάσει εδώ και σχεδόν 11 χρόνια ως λογοτεχνικό, το διαβάζω τώρα. Η Φόνισσα του Α. Παπαδιαμάντη λίγο ξενίζει τον σημερινό αναγνώστη λόγω του ότι είναι γραμμένο στην καθαρεύουσα μαζί με Σκιαθιώτικες (γλωσσικές) πινελιές και είναι ί [...]

  24. "The Murderess" is a novella to remember.This is how I like characters in books: evil with good intentions, but is Old Hadoula really evil? Does she really have good intentions? I loved the nightmares and guilt that assailed Frankojannou, and how religion plays an important part in it, without being supportive or critical of it.This is also how I like books: short and fluent. At 130 pages, this novella flows like the brooks of Skiathos, and the more you read, the more you don't want the story to [...]

  25. Ataerkil sisteme isyan etmenin yolunu kız bebekleri öldürmekte bulan bi' şifacı katilin hikayesi Karakterin hezeyanları öyle ustalıkla verilmiş ki, okuyucu katil kadınla daha kitabın ilk sayfalarında ister istemez empati kuruyor Özellikle kadına bakış açısından Yunanistan ile ne kadar benzer olduğumuzu gösteriyor 1900'lerin başındaki Yunan gelenek ve görenekleri ile ilgili de epey fikir veriyorIskalamayın, Modern Yunan edebiyatının kurucusu olarak bilinen Aleksandros P [...]

  26. Tonight is the night. And it's going to happen again and again. It has to happen. Nice night. Skiathos is a great island. I love the Greek food. Peksimets. My favorite. But I'm hungry for something different nowNeyse, zoytarılığı bir kenara bırakalım; Hadula bir solukta okuyacağınız hoş bir kitap efenim.

  27. Διαβάζοντας το τολμώ να πω ότι ο Αλέξανδρος Παπαδιαμάντης είναι και συγγραφέας τρόμου!

  28. A perfect tragedy. A powerful treatise on social injustice. An obituary to a demented, tragic, victimised, unhopeful murderess in order to lend her a sympathetic ear.

  29. This is when I am really proud to read in Greek. A Jewel of language and art of word. A dramatic story of a commonly met crime in Greek mythology and not only.
