Маргьорит Юрсенар (1903 -1987) е първата жена, приета за член на френската академия. Тя е писател, историк, но и голям пътешественик, особено заинтригуван от Изтока - близък и далечен. Пътува от Балканите до Япония, от Китай до Гърция, от Албания до Япония. Разказите и легендите, които чува по тези места и които я съпътстват, се превръщат в ключовете към обичаите, нравите, ...more

Se trata de una colección de fábulas y leyendas orientales ("oriental" en este caso, es desde el punto de vista Europeo, pues varios de los cuentos se desarrollan en Europa del Este: Grecia, Serbia, entre otros países) reescritas por la autora. Algunas más, son escenarios del tipo "hubiera". Marguerite llena "huecos" literarios de otros autores, o imagina pasajes incontados de la vida real, para convertirlos en sus propias leyendas.

Vale la pena leerlo, pero si hay que escoger una sola razón, es

I knew Yourcenar tardily. She lived for a long time in the USA. She had just published "Archives of north" her less famous book and from my point of view the most intimate. This novel/essay on the family memory is facinant. There are several levels analysis, particularly psychanalytical.
Yourcenar is risked with orient. I am always anxious such a project because of risk of kitsch. Nothing like it here. Yourcenar is too a connoisseur of orient to let herself go to orientalism cheap.

Catatan Seorang Kolumnis Dadakan

Pertama kali muncul keinginan untuk membaca buku ini usai membaca Rashomon karya Ryonosuke Akutagawa (KPG, 2007). Entah dibagian akhir buku atau dimana saya melihat deskripsi buku Cerita-cerita Timur ini dan tiba-tiba merasa harus membacanya.

Selang waktu berjalan saya pun lupa tentang hal ini. Baru teringatkan kembali ketika mendapat katalog dari penerbit Yayasan Obor

Este libro es mi primer acercamiento a la obra de Yourcenar. El libro consta de diez relatos cortos que son reinterpretaciones de cuentos tradicionales de oriente (Asia, Europa del Este y Oriente Medio), reescritos y a veces modificados por la autora en aras del estilo narrativo. El libro es muy fácil de leer y las historias son muy bellas. Siento que al ser historias que ya existían antes de que Yourcenar las reescribiera no tengo los recursos para hacer una crítica del estilo de la prosa o de ...more

Yavaş yol alıyorlardı, çünkü Wang-Fo geceleri gezegenleri, gündüzleriyse kızböceklerini seyretmek için duraklıyordu. Yükleri hafifti; çünkü Wang-Fo eşyaların kendileirni değil, imgeleri severdi ve dünyada fırçaların, çini mürekkeplerinin, lake boya kutularının dışında hiçbir şeyin sahiplenilecek kadar değerli olmadığını söylerdi. Yoksuldular, çünkü Wang-Fo resimlerini bir tas arpa çorbasıyla takas eder, gümüş paraları küçümserdi. Sırtındaki çizim dolu torbanın ağırlığı altında çırağı Ling, gökku ...more

Orientales, toutes les créatures de Marguerite Yourcenar le sont à leur manière...

e qui più che in altre opere viene fuori questo preziosismo del linguaggio, questa cesellatura della frase che immerge profondamente in ambienti di sete, giade e raffinata crudeltà. Un sogno.
Camilla Calvetti
Este libro de Yourcenar me llevó por tantos lugares lejanos, a tiempos lejanos y personajes misteriosos y poco comunes en este agitado día a día de Siglo XXI. La sencillez en sus palabras y la simpleza de los relatos me dejó profundamente impresionada y también logró despertar mi poesía nuevamente que estaba bien dormida en este invierno crudo.
Amé cada historia, cada personaje. sin embargo las que más me gustaron fueron Kali decapitada, el último amor de Genghi y Nuestra Senora de las Golondrina

A short collection of short tales, told with masterful attention to allegory and scenery, and a wealth of ideas and sights -- worlds built upon by Yourcenar to bring myth and fantasy to reality, through insightful parables where beauty, love and horror walk hand in hand, and weave a hurtful tapestry of ancestral quality. Yourcenar's remarkable wisdom shines through, in both historical and human terms, to provide the reader with a set of very satisfying, very provokative stories on which we can a ...more

мм, прекрасна книга, събрала в себе си десетина легенди или художествени версии на легенди - китайски, японски, индийски, сръбски, гръцки...

четири звездички давам, защото имаше няколко текста не дотам силни... просто бледнееха в сравнение с другите (които са -- ами уау!)

уханни и омайни думи, внимателно подбрани и оставящи те без дъх

Una raccolta molto bella, ma per quanto riguarda il mito albanese "il latte della morte", molto rivisitato e cambiato in parte il contenuto: fu un vecchio a suggerire di fare un sacrificio perché il castello potesse rimanere in piedi.. Inoltre la leggenda narra che la donna scelta per essere sacrificata e murata viva, chiese di lasciarle scoperti un occhio per guardare, una mano per accarezzare, una mammella per allattare ed una gamba per cullare il suo bambino ancora in fasce, e non solo il sen ...more

Oriental Tales by Marguerite Yourcenar
Wonderful stories

How Wang- Fo was Saved
This is the first in the series.
Wang –Fo is such a great painter that at one point, when he creates an image of a lake, water pours in to the “reality” out from the “imagination”. The imagination of the painter blends with, or invades the reality of the tale. The painter is such a keen observer that, when his loyal companion is beheaded next to him, after he had tried to defend his master, Wang- Fo is fascinated by re

1. Buku ini berjudul “Cerita-cerita Timur” dengan judul asli “Nouvelles Orientales” yang terbit dalam bahasa Perancis pada tahun 1978. Buku yang saya baca adalah terbitan KPG tahun 2007, sebenarnya sudah pernah diterjemahkan lebih dulu oleh Pustaka Jaya. Mendengar judul dan melihat sampulnya yang bernuansa kebudayaan Tiongkok, minimal dari lukisan dan klausa timur. Namun setelah membaca pengantarnya barulah kita dong sebenarnya timur ini bukan diasosiasikan kebudayaan timur (ketika dipandang dar ...more

El cuento del pintor chino es sin duda mi favorito, y con ese en el inicio el resto de los cuentos, debo admitir, me decepcionaron un poco, no por que no estén maravillosamente escritos, pero porque, en mi opinión, no se comparan con el nivel de originalidad y magia del primero, aún así, es un libro muy recomendable, compré otro libro de Yourcenar, Fuegos, porque me enamoré de su prosa.

Харесах тази книга. Езикът е омайващ и завладяващ - всъщност именно той ме впечатли най-много. И именно заради него най-вече четенето на книгата беше удоволствие. Е, да, имаше истории, които не ми харесаха особено, но и други, на които изцяло се насладих.
Книгата е кратка, чете се леко и бързо.

As it is usual with short stories books, some were good and others were not as good. My favourite was definitely The Last Love of Prince Genji, though I've also enjoyed Decapitated Kali, How Wang-fo was Saved and The Man Who Loved the Nereids.
The stories had what I've come to expect from oriental tales: a sort of oneiric atmosphere, in which the supernatural, the myth and legend, play a natural role in the lives of man. That to me, was the best part of the book.
I'd advise you to do some research

La mayoría de los relatos de Cuentos orientales están basados en leyendas y mitos griegos, balcánicos, chinos, japoneses e hindúes, aunque también Marguerite Yourcenar imagina la génesis o continuación de ciertas historias, como el porqué de una ermita como la de Nuestra señora de las golondrinas o el final de un viejo casanova japonés que pierde la vista y el glamour en casi total soledad. Además tenemos desde un pintor chino que se salva y se pierde en una de sus pinturas, una madre que, aunqu ...more

Las historias de este libro son tristes, melancólicas, desafortunadas. Amor, muerte, piedad, odio... La temática es variada, así como sus personajes. Entre mis cuentos favoritos están Cómo se salvó Wang-Fo, Kali decapitada, Nuestra Señora de las golondrinas y El último amor del príncipe Genghi.

Reconoceré que disfruté más a la autora que la obra.

Judul asli buku ini adalah Oriental Tales. Jadi pertama kali melihat judul buku ini saya berfikir bahwa isinya mungkin adalah kisah-kisah tradisional dari Asia timur, merujuk pada Cina, Korea dan Jepang.

Awalnya saya bertanya2, mengapa Marguerite Yourcenar memberi judul Oriental Tales, sementara kisah-kisah yang diceritakan dalam buku ini adalah dongeng tradisional daerah timur. Termasuk didalam bukan saja dari Jepang dan Cina, tapi juga Yunani, India, Arab, Slovia, Herzegovina.

Cuentos orientales es un libro muy bueno con el que el lector podrá disfrutar de increíbles historias. Decidí leer este libro porque me gustan este tipo de historias donde rara vez hay un final feliz y la mayoría de las historias son de pesadilla. Hay un nombre para este tipo de libros, pero ahora no lo recuerdo (sí, literatura no es mi materia fuerte... weird).

El caso es que me gustó mucho este libro, me recuerda un poco al estilo de Horacio Quiroga y he disfrutado en verdad leyendo todos estos

Since reading 'Memoirs of Hadrian' last year and being overwhelmed, I have looked forward to reading more of Marguerite Yourcenar's exquisite writing.

These beautiful short stories come from many continents and far flung origins including Japan, China, Greece, the Balkans, Turkey and others. All contain enigmas of one sort or another which give a pleasing slant on fairy tales mingled with elements of horror and most are laced with eroticism and sensual pleasures which usually lead to the downfal

No hay manera más sencilla para dejarse viajar hacia cuentos de tanto color y elementos, así como de dulce balanceo y trinquineo de las palabras como con este corto libro. Puede que Cortazar sea una manera fácil de acceder para mi, pero la verdad es que no tengo idea que es lo que hace Marguerite con su estilo para escribir Literatura. Algo tiene que ver con la delicadeza en donde despierta nuestra imaginación de la que construye paisajes llenos de vida e interés de algún lejano y mistico lugar ...more

10 истории, повече балкански, отколкото източни, базирани на известни легенди, суеверия, стари текстове или художествена измислица. Започват и завършват със стар художник и са различно силни и запомнящи се. Това, с което тази книга влиза под кожата, е езикът на Маргьорит Юрсенар. Много красив, образен и жив, омагьосващ като самодивите, за които разказва, наситен с цветове, аромати, вкусове, усещания, звуци, слънца и звезди.
Съжалявам, че я откривам толкова късно.

« Lorsque Genghi le Resplendissant, le plus grand séducteur qui ait jamais étonné l’Asie, eut atteint sa cinquantième année, il s’aperçut qu’il fallait commencer à mourir. »



Je ne sais pratiquement pas quoi dire sur ce livre.

Il fait partie de ces petits trésors, comme un bijou qu'on n'ose pas porter et qu'on admire au soleil sans pouvoir se lasser, qu'on oubliera jamais.
