Science fiction with more purpose than just entertain. H. G. Wells surprised me a lot with The War of the Worlds early this year, and I was in the mood for something short and great. The Country of the Blind is very good, it deals with intelectual diferences due to diferent habilities, in this case, using the sight as example. An interesting read, perfect after a complicated book or while having a hard time at school or work.

Si dice: si legge d'un fiato, in poche ore; ma senza dubbio questo racconto non merita tanta fretta. Il villaggio dei ciechi si trova in una remota valle delle Ande, circondata da ghiacciai, inaccessibile anche ai più coraggiosi esploratori; i monti intorno fanno da cornice a un cielo meraviglioso, della cui vista nessuno degli abitanti può godere. Non conoscono l'azzurro del giorno, né le stelle della sera; non ipotizzano neppure l'esistenza di uno spazio esterno alla loro valle: la loro interp ...more

.لو لم تكن قد قرأت ( بلد العميان ) فإنني أرجو أن تفسح لي صدرك قليلا

كتبت هذه القصة عام 1904 وتحكي عن مجموعة من المهاجرين من بيرو فروا من طغيان الإسبان ثم حدثت انهيارات صخرية في جبال الإنديز فعزلت هؤلاء القوم في واد غامض
انتشر بينهم نوع غامض من التهاب العيون أصابهم جميعا بالعمي وقد فسروا ذلك بانتشار الخطايا بينهم
هكذا لم يزر أحد هؤلاء القوم ولم يغادروا واديهم قط لكنهم ورثوا أبناءهم العمي جيلا بعد جيل

هنا يظهر بطل قصتنا ..( نيونز )

إنه مستكشف وخبير في تسلق الجب

“Beati monoculi in terra caecorum”: la saggezza popolare si “scontra” con la scienza. Un fulminante racconto in cui si ritrovano temi scientifici, fantascientifici, ma anche tanta poesia. Diverse sono le interpretazioni che se ne possono dare: antropologiche, politiche, culturali. In ogni caso l’effetto è quello di farci riflettere sul relativismo culturale, sui concetti di civiltà e di barbarie, sulla presunta superiorità della società civile rispetto alla sostenuta arretratezza culturale di ch ...more

"In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king." - Proverb of Bagota
I enjoy Wells story-telling immensely, and this tale is an example of what makes him great. In a short story, he weaves an adventure that answers all of the following questions but one. Guess which one:

How would life change for human beings if we had all been born without vision?
Is there any such thing as a handicap? Why?
Would you give up your eyes for love?
Could you love someone who does not understand your passions?

با وجودی گذشت صد سال از انتشار این داستان کوتاه (1904) دی اچ لارنس، "کشور کوران" قصه ای ست بکر و حیرت انگیز که به عنوان نمادی برای جهان، در همه جای تاریخ بشر، مصداق دارد. کوهنوردی به نام "نونز"، در راه فتح قله ای ناگشوده، می لغزد، و به دره ای در آن سوی کوه می غلتد، دهکده ای جدا افتاده از جهان، با خانه هایی بی پنجره، و جاده هایی که با دیواره مرزبندی شده اند؛ سرزمین کوران! اگرچه اولین نسلی که به اینجا آمده، چشم داشته، اما بیماری مرموزی سبب شده تا کودکان، به دنیا بیایند، و زمین لرزه ها سبب شده اند ...more

I didn’t read this short story until I took Disability and Literature in the spring of my junior year of college. Like a few of the other texts I’ve posted about, I like this story because it can be read from a couple different angles. You could look at the time period in which it was published (1911), and read it as a piece that deals with the issues of imperialism. I like this story because it’s science fiction with a purpose. Oftentimes, I think sci-fi is cast aside in the classroom because i ...more

Un breve relato con más profundidad y mensajes que la mayoría de libros que multiplican con mucho su extensión. Una muestra de que si sabes cómo, puedes decir mucho con poco.

Principalmente, son dos los mensajes con los que me he encontrado entre las páginas de este maravilloso libro:

- El afán de la comunidad por doblegar a aquellos que son diferentes; forzarles a abandonar sus ideas, sus ideas estúpidas de seres inferiores para ser más exactos, y abrazar su verdad, la única verdad. ¿Hay alguna d

Gostei muito.

Em 20 e poucas páginas, o autor conseguiu criar uma situação que suscita uma reflexão muito interessante sobre alguns aspectos como a xenofobia, a religião, o conceito de beleza, a felicidade...

As primeiras páginas foram um pouco difíceis, porque são muito descritivas e a linguagem é do início do século XX, mas vale bem a pena o esforço - e é sempre bom aumentar o vocabulário de inglês!...

E não é ficção científica (como alguns leitores o classificam), parece-me plausível que uma sit

"How would you describe the colour red to a blind person?" This common creative writing prompt is stretched to an extreme in H G Wells' short story 'The Country of the Blind', in which a mountaineer named Nunez stumbles into a secluded valley whose residents have lived without eyesight for fourteen generations.

At first, Nunez confidently assumes his sight will give render him a superior in this sightless realm, but finds that there are factors that he has not accounted for. An entire ecosystem h

I loved the deeper subtext of this story: just because one has superior knowledge does not give them and advantage over a more primitive society. In fact, the power of a sociocultural entity is such that an outsider, given time, will start to accept the "correctness" of the entity's worldview, even if the outsider knows it violently collides with objective reality.

Well work reading.

I heard that there are two versions of this short story. The differences is only the ending. First, the original one ends with the scene when the main character, Nunez, climbs the mountain. Second, the 1939 revised version ends with the scene when Nuñez sees from a distance that there is about to be a rock slide. He attempts to warn the villagers, but again they scoff at his “imagined” sight. He flees the valley during the slide, taking Medina-Saroté with him. I read the original version. It giv ...more

Words don't suffice to describe the beauty of this short story. A very well written story with picturesque description of everything. We take our gift of sight for granted, reading this story will make one feel more blessed for their vision. I recommend this to everyone who can read and has eyes!

4.5 stars.

I don’t have much to say about this, but for a very simple and short story it does pack quite a powerful message. It’s also refreshing to read something that is so clear in its meaning and not so cryptic / ambiguous like full-length novels can quite often be. I’ve never read any Wells until now but his style is descriptive, but also (and probably not a surprise, given his genre choices) very engaging. This story was also a lot more emotional than I was expecting.

In 1866, (Herbert George) H.G. Wells was born to a working class family in Kent, England. Young Wells received a spotty education, interrupted by several illnesses and family difficulties, and became a draper's apprentice as a teenager. The headmaster of Midhurst Grammar School, where he had spent a year, arranged for him to return as an "usher," or student teacher. Wells earned a government schol ...more
