Skildring af en stationsforstanderindes korte og bittersøde kærlighedsoplevelse i en lille stationsby i slutningen af 1800-tallet.

Herman Bangs lille mesterværk ”Ved Vejen” (oprindeligt trykt i novellesamlingen ”Stille Eksistenser” 1886) har været en klassiker i umindelige tider – og den holder stadig.

Bogen handler om den unge Katinka Bai, der frivilligt har giftet sig med

A friend of mine who is very well-read in Danish literature (which I very much am not) keeps telling me to read more books by Danish authors. I ‘blame’ my four-year stint in the States as a teenager and, later, my decision to major in English at university. And let’s face it, even staying abreast of the development of English literature is fairly impossible – not to mention American, Scottish, Canadian, French (which I minored in) etc. – but I have to admit to also being slightly prejudiced agai ...more

La lettura di questo libro si è rivelata un'esperienza particolare, poiché l'atmosfera generale che pervade la narrazione è rarefatta, è tutto fatto d'impressioni, attimi e percezioni momentanee, dunque sembra di essere completamente immersi nelle vicende ed allo stesso tempo di osservarle in maniera distaccata, è una sensazione che faccio fatica a spiegare coerentemente.
Quelli raccontati sono avvenimenti all'apparenza molto semplici e la descrizione della vita familiare di un paesino danese ch

Charmante maar ietwat gedateerde impressionistische klassieker uit de Deense literatuur. Het noodlot slaat toe in de persoon van een blitse rentmeester die een ingeslapen dorpje op z'n grondvesten doet daveren en de emotioneel wankele vrouw van een brute stationschef in het verderf stort. Een stilistisch verfijnde tearjerker.

An absolutely heartbreaking novel with such great attention to humerous details in the midst of a tragic life of a lonely and depressed housewife - Katinka. At the arrival of Mr. Huus, Katinka experiences the colours of love, but being married to the womanizer, Bai, she and Huus cannot be together. Herman Bang is one of the greatest impressionist writers, and his style and outstanding talent for depicting life and people makes this book a mesmerizing read.
Julie Rasmine Larsen
Herman Bang er en af mine absolut yndlingsforfattere, delvist på grund af de mange tomme pladser, han i bedste Blixen-stil overlader til læseren selv at udfylde, men også grundet de queer-teoretiske læsninger, som man kan lægge ned over hans store beundringsværdige forfatterskab. Historien om Katinka og livet i den lille by og på TogStationen er noget for sig selv. Gode anbefalinger herfra.

Der er nu noget pokkers hyggeligt ved at sidde og læse ældre dansk litteratur (i dette tilfælde fra 1886), især når der er tale om klassikerne. I sommers læste jeg Et Dukkehjem af Henrik Ibsen, og nu kom turen til et af Herman Bangs hovedværker - både 'Et Dukkehjem' og 'Ved Vejen' blev en del af "det moderne gennembrud".

Der er skrevet rigeligt med referater af 'Ved Vejen', så det vil jeg lade være med. I stedet vil jeg opfordre til, at man læser den - og til, at man læser den med den 'gammeldags

Though its part of Scandinavia's Modern Breakthrough of the late 1800s, it (inevitably perhaps) feels anything but modern by today's standards. But the novel definitely has its moments - I was quite caught up in the romance between Katinka and Huus.

Det var en speciel læseoplevelse at læse en bog hvor jeg ikke fik nogen former for følelser.
Det var som at kigge i et gadespejl, som så ind i det gadespejl, som hovedpersonerne betragtede de andre i.
Et citat i bogen: Kvinder bruger de første 25 år af deres levetid på at vente på en mand og de sidste 25 år på at vente på at dø.
Ingen mål, drømme og ønsker men en affinden sig med de odds livet giver.
Jeg vil læse Ved Vejen igen om nogle år.

En virkelig god fortælling. Jeg kan rigtigt godt lide den impressionistiske stil - alle de små glimt ind i personernes gøremål. Dialogerne er rigtigt godt skrevet og så er Henrik Kofoed virkelig god til at læse historien op. Det gør han bare super godt!
Cathrine
Jeg kan godt lide den pga. kærlighedshistorien - men jeg må bare indse, at det slet ikke er til min generation :-D Sproget er også for gammelt for mig, men sådan er det jo. Jeg kan godt lide Herman Bangs impressionistiske stil, hans minimalisme.
Larissa
A lovely 19th century melodrama (panorama) that cynically observes the plights of womanhood to be equally born of social restrictions and women's passive acceptance of their own degradation and unhappiness.

Really good book! Circles great around the subject of women position in society in 1886. This is a danish classic. And I need to get my own copy!
