Самый верный путь к творческому бессмертию, это писать sub specie mortis - с точки зрения смерти, или, что в данном случае одно и тоже, с точки зрения вечности. Именно с этой позиции пишет свою прозу Чингиз Айтматов, классик русской и киргизской литературы, лауреат самых престижных премий, хотя последнее обстоятельство в глазах читателя современного, сформировавшегося уже...more

Chingiz Aitmatov (1928-2008) was a Kyrgyz/Soviet writer who wrote novels, essays and plays for the theater in both Russian and his mother tongue. Although Aitmatov was apparently more than merely tolerated by the Soviet authorities (he was awarded the Lenin Prize), I can't help but think that he was a token ethnic author to them, for the books I've read up to this point have not been in the approved soviet realist style complete with Sovie...more
Сэтгэл гэгч агуу ажээ. Хvсэл тэмvvлэл хэзээ ч vл бехех агаад гагцхvv cэтгэлийн жолоодлогоор улам урагш ахих..

Хамгийн эмгэнэлтэй тегсгел бол цор ганцаар vлдэх. Харин энэ зохиол цор ганцаар vлдээд тегсев. Бусдын телее еерийгее vл хайхрах тэр агуу сэтгэл, дотоод зерчил, сэтгэлийн тэнхээ гээд маш олон санааг еертее агуулан, энгийн хvvрнэх зуур маш гvн агуулгыг емне минь дэлгэсэн нь бахдууштай байлаа.
I read this in grad school and it's the book that caused me to learn the word "piebald" (translation of Пегий in the title). Then I had to look up piebald in an English dictionary because I didn't know what it meant. Despite that it was very good. It's more of a "work" (повесть) than a novel in Russian terms (ie, not as long as War & Peace). It's not an uplifting story but it's a good read. I remember feeling rather drained after reading it. Good lit.

“Nothing but water -- an ever-moving swell; nothing but waves, swiftly forming and instantly dying; nothing but depths; dark, fathomless depths; and nothing but sky, scudding white clouds, puffy and intangible. This was the living world, nothing besides, nothing else but sea. No winter or summer, no hills or ravines.” 1 likes
