    1 thought on “Corazón tan blanco

    1. ”Listening is the most dangerous thing of all, listening means knowing, finding out about something and knowing what’s going on, our ears don’t have lids that can instinctively close against the words uttered, they can’t hide from what they sense they’re about to hear, it’s always too late.”Juan is trained to listen to people. He is a professional translator, so when he is listening to conversations it comes in his ears in one language and comes out his mouth in another language. H [...]

    2. Masterfully intriguing and told using a seductive and challenging narrative, Javier Marias goes from sentence to dazzling sentence that reaches deep within the human psyche to reveal a family's past shrouded in mystery, where questions that are asked leads to unsettling hostilities, all the while exploring themes of love, desire and the good and bad side of marriage.And it's marriage that sits somewhat uncomfortably in the foreground in 'A Heart so White'. Marias examines the commonplace yet pec [...]

    3. Helen Ροζουλί Εωσφόρος Vernus Portitor Arcanus Ταμετούρο Αμούν Arnum says:

      "I have done the deed. Did you hear a noise"?MACBETH. "Καρδιά τόσο άσπρη"τι υπέροχη φράση για να γνωριστείς με έναν Ισπανό δημιουργό που σε γοητεύει συναισθηματικά και πνευματικά χωρίς ιδιαίτερη προσπάθεια. Ο Χαβιέρ Μαρίας κατάφερε να με "γλεντήσει" χωρίς σταματημό και να με ικανοποιήσει αναγνωσ [...]

    4. Very unusual story about betrayal and confession. Set in the deeply catholic countries of Spain and Cuba, it argues that too much knowledge between lovers and spouses destroys love. I wonder if that is true. It reminds me of Jeanette Winterson's thoughts in The Passion, where she reflects on the theme that "between sex and fear, passion lies". Too much familiarity, trust and knowledge would thus by default make passion disappear. The same idea is repeated in Written on the Body, where boredom is [...]

    5. What do I wish to hear? About the present? The past, may be? Or a little tune on the waiting future? Do I wish to eavesdrop on my best friend to find out what she thinks of me when I am not around? Am I tempted to open a letter addressed to my partner with no overt allusion to my name or salutation on the envelope? Am I inclined to return to an unknown place just so I can hear a random conversation complete in my mind? Do I wish to pause a few seconds longer at the traffic so I can hear the bant [...]

    6. There are so many layers to this book. You have to be willing to give it time, especially in the first third or so, when Marías writes long, intricate, sentences that fold back on themselves, with parentheses within parentheses. Through this style, Marías presents the thoughts and interpretations of the protagonist, Juan, a translator who describes himself as committed, almost addicted, to understanding all he hears, all he sees, everything around him. Juan has recently married another transla [...]

    7. My hands are of your color; but I shameTo wear a heart so white. William Shakespeare, MacbethTime keeps on moving at an indifferent pace and yet it keeps on changing; every second, every day, and every year. Since we all are busy living, we attach little importance to the things happened and the words spoken in the past as most of the times we are under the impression that it doesn’t hold the power to change our present or affect our future (not devastatingly at least). Certainly there are poe [...]

    8. Un gioco di incastriMarías scrive senza regole, senza attenersi a nessun copione, abbandonandosi ad una fiume di pensieri vagando apparentemente senza una metà precisa. Sembra non conoscere il punto d’arrivo e neppure il peso che i personaggi hanno nella narrazione. I personaggi, nella loro ambiguità, si sovrappongono, si identificano, fino a confondersi, i fatti accaduti in momenti differenti si incastrano con tempismo perfetto. La costruzione del romanzo è perfetta, niente è lasciato al [...]

    9. A book about boundaries, both protected and invaded as well as about time. What is present already is diffused into the past and therefore cannot be known. One cannot know anything! At some point it will be long enough ago that it can be laughed at as though those laughing and remembering were not participants. There are secrets. He lives in a world of suspicions, trying to interpret, translate, so he is well defended, everything is in its place as when he returns from a trip and unpacks each th [...]

    10. Over beers with a friend, I was trying to articulate what it is about Graham Swift, one of his favorite novelists, that I didn't like. I meant to be gentle, not wanting to bruise his feelings, but he doubtlessly was prepared for another rant. After 30 years of friendship he well knows my attempts at persuasion and my underlying insistence on being right. (We spent a similar evening arguing with voices raised but without consequence over who was the most musically influential Beatle). But skills [...]

    11. Sudeći po ovoj knjizi, Havijer Matijas je pisac – zavodnik, ali ne u značenju Latin lover, već pre zavoditelj, zavodilac – kako li se kaže. Iza, naizgled, nesigurnog naratora, ispitivački zbunjenog pred životom i ljudima, on stoji zreo, stamen i vraški talentovan, odmeren, precizan, jasan. Rečenice su mu nešto duže, deskriptivan je, repetitivan, zgušnjava i detaljiše. No, to radi toliko perfidno i znalački da čitalac ne samo da ne pomišlja na “’ajde, više, reci, aman!”, [...]

    12. “I did not want to know but I have since come to know that one of the girls, when she wasn’t a girl any more and hadn’t long been back from her honeymoon, went into the bathroom, stood in front of the mirror, unbuttoned her blouse, took off her bra and aimed her own father’s gun at her heart, her father at the time was in the living room with other members of the family and three guests.”And so with the first sentence we dive into unknown depths. The title of the book is from Macbeth, [...]

    13. Ode agli stoici genitori dell’infante Javier.Certo è, che Marìas da piccolo, non l’avrei voluto conoscere.Mettiamo il caso che sia possibile usufruire di 5 minuti e prendere la macchina del tempo per tornare all’infanzia del piccolo Javier.Eccolo lì, coi calzoncini corti, che vi aspetta sulla porta di casa perché voi lo portiate al parco.Osservatelo mentre fiducioso vi dà la mano e vi incamminate assieme. Il tragitto scorre lento e sereno (il piccolo Javier è taciturno, ma questo vi [...]

    14. "Listening is the most dangerous thing of all."One of the benefits of a summer birthday is the marginalized chance of being ill on said day. Of course, as we age, the day becomes ever ambivalent. Today I found myself sick beyond preparation. It has been a rough week w/ viruses making rounds at work and my own sinuses self-immolating. That said, I was hoping for a reprieve today. It didn't happen.Instead my wife and I perched in our living room and read. Art Tatum and Eric Dolphy contributed grea [...]

    15. Intriguing book. It is impossible to read at a normal speed, you are forced to slow down as ideas pop up like little cartoon balloons in almost every sentence. You have to reflect on them, as they seem to remain hovering above the book and only drift away very slowly. The book does not have much dialogue and is written in a breathless voice. I cannot even say if I find that tone attractive or not, neither if I like the book very much. The book is about secrets; secrets kept and secrets revealed. [...]

    16. liked it, didn't love it, didn't really "really like it," found myself often sighing loudly towards the end-- JUST FRIGGIN SAY WHAT YOU'RE GONNA SAY ALREADY AND STOP SAYING IT EIGHTY TIMES IN A ROW-- but there's no doubt marias is an extremely talented writer, above all a great writer of scenes there are scenes in this book-- many, many scenes-- that i will probably remember my whole life (bathroom, balcony, meeting of interpreters, post office, museum guard, wow there are a lot) it's just the n [...]

    17. This is one of the worst books I have ever read. Where shall I start? Its banal insights may just about justify a short story by a teenager; the dialogue is stilted, pretentious and postured; and no interesting events occur - nothing actually happens.Most importantly, the style is pedestrian, repetitive, circumlocutary. For instance: "Carefully, very carefully (but not that carefully) I crossed the room." So which is it, Marias? Carefully, very carefully or not that carefully? And why should I c [...]

    18. “My hands are of your color; but I shame to wear a heart so white.”William Shakespeare, Macbeth Uma mulher mata-se com um tiro no coração. Eu queria muito saber porquê. No entanto, ao longo das páginas, sou enredada e enfeitiçada por histórias, pensamentos, divagações, com conteúdo e apresentação, de tal forma hipnotizantes, que se me torna irrelevante saber porque se matou Teresa.Segredos. O que se deve dizer e o que se não deve; o que queremos saber e o que não queremos. O que [...]

    19. عادة ما تكمن الصعوبة في البدايات وخافيير في هذا النص كان بارعا في تكثيف مشهد افتتاحية النص فأن تبدأ الرواية بمشهد انتحار عروس وبهذه التفاصيل المثيرة فإن ذلك كفيل بأن يجعلك تقرأ بدون توقف لعلك تصل إلى الأسرار أسرار النص وأسرار الحياة فمن منا لا يجب الأسرار ، ربط ماتياس خيوط ا [...]

    20. Marias'ın ciddi anlamda beyin hücresi olmak istiyorum.En Giriş kısmından sonuna kadar temponun sürekli arttığı bir düşünsel ve edebi şölen. Büyük konuşuyorum, Mariası sevmeyen ve sevmiyorum diyen bir edebiyat okuru ya edebi anlamda daha olgunlaşmamıştır ya da düşünme eylemini geri plana atmıştır. Bu kadar övdükten, konu çok kısa olarak içinde bulduğumuz anlarda istemeden kulak misafiri olduğumuz kulak röntgenciliğinin gidebileceği son durum. Ana karakterimiz [...]

    21. [Commento pubblicato sull’Innominabile luogo- breve e coinciso-]“Non ho voluto sapere, ma ho saputo” In "Un cuore così bianco" non è fondamentale la trama ed i suoi personaggi. Quello che veramente importa è la riflessione.”Ed è forse questo che ci spinge a leggere romanzi e articoli e a vedere film, la ricerca dell'analogia, del simbolo, la ricerca del riconoscimento, non della conoscenza.”Rivelare un segreto significa rendere partecipi della propria colpa?Ed è ugualmente colpevo [...]

    22. Viajar no me molesta, siento que no lo he hecho lo suficiente, así que cuando hay oportunidad: la aprovecho. Aunque, es raro que yo planee desplazarme, más bien dejo que las circunstancias sean las que lo dicten, es decir: no lo busco, pero tampoco me resisto tanto.Suelo cargar con un libro o dos incluso en las marchas más insignificantes, ya sea a un café, a las salas de espera del dentista o las filas en el banco. Los paseos más extensos o aquellos que requieren que me suba a un avión, m [...]

    23. A veces tengo la sensación de que nada de lo que sucede sucede, de que todo ocurrió y a la vez no ha ocurrido, porque nada sucede sin interrupción, nada perdura ni persevera ni se recuerda incesantemente, y hasta la más monótona y rutinaria de las existencias se va anulando y negando a sí misma en su aparente repetición hasta que nada es nada ni nadie es nadie que fueran antes, y la débil rueda del mundo es empujada por desmemoriados que oyen y ven y saben lo que no se dice ni tiene luga [...]

    24. I enjoyed this a lot, but it is not an easy book to summarise. Loosely it is a book about family secrets, communication and relationships, with a long-hidden tragedy at its core, and focuses on a son's attempts to understand his father's past and come to terms with the psychological effects of his recent marriage, written in a rich language with a lot of sudden changes of focus, and occasional repetitions. Trying to break it down like that doesn't convey how rewarding the read is.

    25. Obično me mrzi da pišem prikaze ali sa ovom knjigom je nagon da je preporučim prejak. Sjajna knjiga! Sjajna! Bojim se da će previše otkrivanja pokvariti užitak tako da ću se maksimalno uzdržati od detaljisanja. Jer, ovaj suptilan roman je sav u detaljima. Mnoge teme se ponavljaju i iznova obrađuju, naročito pri kraju romana. Utisci koji se izvlače su krajnje subjektivni, mada ovo važi i za mnoge druge romane. Ovde je to ipak malo više izraženo. Glavni lik i narator je simultani pre [...]

    26. “Le mie mani sono del tuo stesso colore, ma mi vergogno di avere un cuore così bianco”Per quanto ho letto finora, mi pare si possa dedurre che i libri di Marías non poggiano tanto sull’azione quanto sulla riflessione. Gli avvenimenti importanti sono pochi e sfuggenti. Il resto è fatto di domande, dissertazioni, del tentativo di fare chiarezza. Se il buon Javier può dire qualcosa in due pagine di certo ne impiegherà almeno dieci. E’ così, mettetevela via. Poi, dipendentemente dal li [...]

    27. Πυκνό, πολύστροφο και σπειροειδές μυθιστόρημα για την επικοινωνία, τον γάμο, τη συντροφικότητα, τον λόγο και τον χρόνο. Εντυπωσιακά στημένες πολλές σκηνές, ιδίως η εναρκτήρια, με ένα υποδόριο μυστήριο να διαποτίζει τις σελίδες και να ενισχύει το αίσθημα της απειλής. Αν και [...]

    28. "دست های من همرنگ تو هستند اما شرم دارم از داشتن قلبی به این سپیدی"مکبث، شکسپیردر این کتاب سخن از "زبان" است، زبان تن و اشاره، زبان گفتاری و کلمات، زبان موسیقی و حتی زبان بصری و تابلو ها، در کنار ماجرای پر کشش رمان راوی با سوالهایی که مطرح کرده و افکاری که به نگارش در آورده است مط [...]

    29. Empezar a leer a un gran autor siempre genera un cierto sentimiento de vacilación sobre por cuál de sus libros empezar a conocerlo, ¿cronológicamente para ir viendo como evoluciona?, ¿empezar por sus obra más ambiciosa y lograda con el riesgo de que después, inevitablemente, se convierta en la vara contra las que se miden todas las restantes?, en mi caso decidí abordar a Marías por Corazón tan Blanco, pues sin necesariamente ser, creo yo y sin conocer las demás, su obra más pulida o [...]

    30. “Recounting an event distorts it, recounting facts distorts and twists and almost negates them, everything that one recounts, however true, becomes unreal and approximate, the truth doesn't depend on things actually existing or happening, but on their remaining hidden or unknown or untold…”A Heart So White is in a way an anatomy of wedlock – a scrupulous analysis of man and wife relations in general and discovering a family secret in particular. A secret as grand and dramatic as in Jane [...]
