    Book ¸ The Master of Petersburg Å Paperback ê Jm coetzee The Master of PetersburgImaginary MemoirsThe first person narrator of The Master of Petersburg is Coetzee's imagining of Fyodor Dostoyevsky as he might have been in October 1869 immediately before he started writing his third novel DemonsThe Master is living in Dresden when he is summoned back to St Petersburg after the sudden death of his stepson Pavel Isaev on 12 OctoberHe soon begins to inhabit Pavel's lodgings haunts and psyche in an attempt to comprehend their shared life and fate and to solve the mystery of his cause of death suicide or murder and if the latter by whom? The police or his insurrectionary acuaintances?The relationship between the Master and Pavel hasn't always been amicable The Master's journey is designed not just to learn about Pavel but to reconcile the two of them albeit too late to make any difference during his lifetime His immediate goal is to recover Pavel’s private papers which have been confiscated by the police Just as the Master learns things

    Book ¸ The Master of Petersburg Å Paperback ê Jm coetzee The Master of PetersburgStrokes of a Paintbrush Coetzee's Narrative StrokesJM Coetzee's descriptive tool appears to be like a paintbrush or so it seemsThe deeply rooted thought penetrating narrative is elegant in its indulgence poetic in its expression vivid in its portrayal as it attempts to give form to a whirlpool of thoughts that glide restlessly inside the unstable mind of a genius The wordings themselves become an efficient descriptive tool like that of a paintbrush maneuvered by the painter's dexterous hand as it dips unto the pastel of colors abruptly swishing in the air and unto the white canvas as the strokes themselves insidiously capture a particular moment in vivid picture So in a way Coetzee's searing techniue tries to encapsulate Dostoevsky's wandering thoughts in parallel to the painter's ardent desire to freeze an image that lurks inside his headCoetzee's treatment of what goes on inside Dostoevsky's consciousness is unobstructed l

    Book ¸ The Master of Petersburg Å Paperback ê Jm coetzee The Master of PetersburgThere’s not really a lot of room for silliness in this review not that Coetzee tends to lend himself to anything other than seriousness in general Noted nepotistic asshole Martin Amis famously said that Coetzee’s entire corpus was predicated on transmitting absolutely no pleasure Sorry Marty but there is a distinct difference between you and JM he can actually fucking write and you have been reduced to a sound bite and a footnote to literature that is already in the process of being forgotten Should one feel that all books need necessarily provide ‘pleasure’ by whatever litmus Amis chose to define the parameters count me out I don't have enough fingers or toes to even provide a reasonable estimate of

    Book ¸ The Master of Petersburg Å Paperback ê Jm coetzee The Master of PetersburgFascinating read His syntax reveals a clarity and credibility so elevated in its integrity that one lives the POV of the narrator in this case the existential genius novelist Dostoevsky It is a daunting bit of narrative ambition bordering on hubris to assume the POV of Dostoevsky and yet Coetzee is compelling skilled and possibly even on the brink of masterful in this rendition He writes a great deal about the relationship between fathers and sons very Turgenev What does it mean to suffer as a Russian writer History is made in the streets | I was sent to live a Russian life In this point of view of the Russian writer Coetzee purposely ends his sentences dozens of times with prepositions and neglects the comma after an initial dependent clause A Nobel Prize winner may do as he will and be forgiven Not sure whether Fyodor Mikhailovich the eponymous Master of Petersburg would forgive Coetzee these grammat

    Book ¸ The Master of Petersburg Å Paperback ê Jm coetzee The Master of PetersburgThis is a well plotted literary thriller Lots of dramatic situations unfolding simultaneously a murder mystery of course an extra marital affair of course the death of a child of course a disease of course and child molestation can't leave that out I really had higher hopes for JM Coetzee though He had been recommended to my by people whom I respect and he won the Nobel Prize and everything etc Unfortunately I found despite its considerable strengths eg it was engaging In his fictional Dostoevsky Coetzee created a vivid and compelling character and I turned the pages eagerly through about three uarters of the book though I admit only skimmed the last fifteen pages because by then uite honestly I'd had enough of this nonsense this book embodies pretty much everything that has come to really bug me about contemporary literature First and foremost the s

    Book ¸ The Master of Petersburg Å Paperback ê Jm coetzee The Master of Petersburgthis may be coetzee's most ambitious and richly layered novel seemingly his most personal his son dead at twenty three from his own falling accident while the book triumphs on many levels not the least of which being the emotional candor he would had to have mustered throughout the writing of it this is hardly his most powerful work much of the intense unabashed rawness of his other earlier later stories is spared here replaced instead with a contemplative perspective perhaps not as acute in its impact though much better suited for the tale told coetzee's adeptness at melding together historical fact classic fiction and a distinctive present is nearly breathtaking few writers have a body of work as consistently strong throughout as john maxwell's he is unuestionably one of modern literature's finest authors
