May 03, Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly rated it it was amazing. 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: That the act of translating a literary work is not anddre 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 Why would I give five stars to a book I did not enjoy, did not like, felt malruax special about and came very close to not finishing it?
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 turning out something even anre than the original, like a much improved version of a crude prototype the author originally wrote. So in reading a work which is not in its original language it matters a lot ajdre translation you read, and that you cannot really be sure, going gaga over a “masterpiece” you’ve just stumbled upon, if the same was excellence conceived or excellence in translation.
I am sure I’ve read about several great writers, though at the moment I remember only Nabokov, who developed their literary muscles translating classics before they wrote their own.
And so now I repent and ask forgiveness for my many sins of ingratitude, those countless occasions where I toasted the writers and their works while ignoring, forgetting and treating as completely insignificant their translators without whom I would have not been able to read what they’ve written at all.
But here, I commit no such sin. I do the adre.
I condemn the translator Haakon M. Chevalier who did a horrible job here, his only saving grace being that he was lucky. Lucky for having me as his reader, forced by the circumstances that I do not know French and do not have any other translation available, I who recognized the great plot revolution, China’s nascent communist movementAndre Malraux’s brilliant conceptions terrorists, revolutionaries, their sacrifices and inescapable humanityhis stirring prose faintly detected by myself, mostly imagined, but with moral certainty that it exists in the original French all buried under the muck and mess this accursed humanx managed to inundate these all with.
Yet I cannot do anything about what enrages me: View all 11 comments. Nov 01, Jonfaith rated it really liked it. What hhumana tale of jihad and lust during a civil war.
If that appears reductive, there is a touch more shadow and verse at play in this gripping and frenetic novel of Shanghai in Equally dogmatic and dour, Man’s Fate is episodic in terms of narrative and ensemble.
There is gore and grief and considerable historical certainty at what the Future holdseven as the vanquished are tortured and often burned alive. Elements are included of miscegenation and misogyny. These simply enhance the noir. There’s plenty of silence, muttering and plaintive smoking.
There’s a suicide bomber and a confidence man straight out of Melville. Ouviu-se uma sirene que se perdeu nesta pungente serenidade. De ser mais do que homem, num mundo de homens.

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 yet another level, it is the story of a dozen principle actors and the moral and philosophical attitudes that wed them, not only to political involvement, but inform their search for the meaning of existence. For a book whose framework is dependent on political events which are fading from our consciousness into the past, it is a remarkably good read and often transcendent of the times in which it was written, speaking to the persistent dilemma of finding personal meaning in a chaotic and absurd world.
Dec 02, Rakesh rated it it was amazing. This novel is widely regarded as the magnum opus of Andre Malraux. It won the Prix Goncourt, as probably Malraux would have found some of his experiences he was in China during those turbulent years handy when writing it.
Man’s Fate – Wikipedia
This novel is about human bonds, ideals, love, betrayal, hatred and everything. GisorsChen a fanatic who idealizes deathKatov, the Amlraux to This novel is widely regarded as the magnum opus of Andre Malraux. GisorsChen a fanatic who idealizes deathKatov, the Russian toughie, and the Belgian- Hemmelrich.
They have a plan — toppling the established order and bring revolution to China.
But it fails, andrf Chen gets killed during a botched attempt to assassinate Chiang Kaishek. Kyo and others gets captured, and they eventually get killed or commit suicide. I really liked Kyo Gisors. He is the sober one, the intellectual. Gisors is an opium addict,a well respected figure among the French population in the city.
He loves his son and fear for his fate. He is close to Chen as well. Baron Clappique is the most colorful character in this novel- The Mythomaniac, who conjures up stories after stories to hide his miserable present state. Other characters include Mr. Feral; representing the French petit bourgeoisie and his girl friend Valerie she ditches Feral as he saw her only as a sexual object. She is the most underrated malfaux in this novel in my opinion.
This is an excellent philosophical novel, a poetic one. Malraux was a genius and so my five stars….

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 throughout the book I think I’m going to read this again.
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 Great book about the Chinese Civil War. It’s a very well told story, with a violent opening that thrusts the reader right into the action, a gradual build-up to the battle, and as a finale the merciless crackdown that follows. A great introduction to pre-WWII China, which skilfully combines the overarching international agenda and world events with the personal actions of individuals struggling with their internal contradictions and fears.
In certain circumstances, people are no longer free to carry on as normal, and must either take part in the violence or flee. Such perfect storms afflict mankind periodically, and this is an excellent study of one such disaster. Jan 02, L.
