I originally picked this book up for the Coetzee essay only, but I have this annoying personality trait where I have to finish things even if I don’t like them, so I read the whole thing (only skipping the Jelinek essay, but eventually I read that one too.) There is a decent amount of good thinking in here, though I personally find it trite to hear writers profess such unbound love for ‘storytelling.’ In fact, there seems to be a divide between writers who swoon over the act of storytelling, and ...more

"'Second to agriculure, humbug is the biggest industry of our age'" (Alfred Nobel vii).
"A writer is someone who spends years patiently trying to discover the second being inside him, and the world that that makes him who he is: when I speak of writing, what comes first to my mind is not a novel, a poem, or literary tradition, it is a person who shuts himself up in a room, sits down at a table, and alone, turns inward; amid its shadows, he builds a new world with works" (Orhan Pamuk 3).

This is a book of inspiring and thought provoking speeches by Nobel Literary Laureates spanning the years from 1986-2006. Some of literatures most out spoken and even controversial writers reflect upon their individual reasons for becoming the writers they have become. Wole Soyinka offers a plea to end racial prejudices and the human divide that allowed Apartheid and colonialism to exist in African nations far past the eras in which these atrocities flourished. Joseph Brodsky reflects on how man ...more

Amazing: Brodsky. Xingjian, Paz.

Good: Mahfouz, Oe, Heaney, Walcott, Gordimer (even though she speaks kindly of deconstructionism). Naipaul (though long-winded), Kertesz (even though he said some stupid things, like "If the world is an objective reality that exists independently of us, then humans themselves, even in their own eyes, are nothing more than objects, and their life stories merely a series of disconnected historical accidents, which they may wonder at, but which they themselves have

Shelves: translation, essays
a diverse and outstanding collection of musings on life, liberty, and literature from some of the world's greatest writers. while each lecture is poignant in its own way, the most exceptional ones were by orhan pamuk, harold pinter, gao xingjian, dario fo, toni morrison, nadine gordimer, naguib mahfouz and joseph brodsky.

i'll just say that i believe- not empirically, alas, but only theoretically- that, for someone who has read a lot of dickens, to shoot his like in the name of some idea is more

الكتاب هو احد نتاج مشروع "ترجم" التابع لمؤسسة محمد بن راشد
يوجد في الكتاب مزايا عدة ومساوئ كثيرة... لكنه اجمالاً مقبول
اكبر مميزاته انه جمع أفضل الأدباء العالميين حسب نوبل ... و يقدم صورة عامة عن الكاتب وأفضل رواياته وكتبه
حيث يعد بذلك مرجع لمحبي الروايات
لكن اكبر عيوب الكتاب وجود محاضرات مرة بسلسلة ترجمة أفقدتها رونقها مثل ان تترجم من اللغه الأم الى الانجليزية ثم تنتهي بالترجمه للعربية
وخذ مثلا المحاضرة الثانية بعنوان "مهمشة" فتوصيتي بأن تهمشها فهي فعلا علامة سيئة للكتاب ، وهذا كان رأي أكثر من شخ

A great collection of essays from some of the world's top writers, covering the act of writing, our relationship with language, politics, war, culture, identity, adversity, place, truth and art. The writing styles vary from eloquent clarity to poetic opacity but all left me with the feeling of the power of words and the skill with which they wield it. Highly inspiring to me as a writer.

5 Stars for Seamus Heaney's nobel address, "Crediting Poetry," which shows the mundane and profoundest aspects of why artists make art--and you may be doing something similar but not identifying it as art.

He starts out with specific ideas about poetry so stick with it, poetry haters, he broadens and grows up to the last line where he lights up all art making.

الترجمة سيئة جداً وافسدت جميع المقالات التي كنت انتظرها..يغنيك بالكثير من المعلومات اذا كنت قادراً على فك شفرة المترجم. وضعت ملاحظة ان لا اقرأ اي كتاب مترجم من هذا الدار رغم ان سمعته جيدة جداً في السوق العربي للكتب

A journey with the Nobel Laureates- coming close to them as a human being,knowing their thoughts beyond their writing on politics, society, passion, conscience, religion and over all life as a whole.
Writing to most of them is like meditation-a solitary journey towards their creation.

These are pretty fantastic, as should be expected. Especially Wislawa Szymborska's 1996 speech, I am obsessed with her as an author. She just speaks my language.

Insights and expresssions of political beliefs from the masters. I also realized that the Nobel lecture is the writer's public political podium similar to actors at the Oscars

استمتعت بالكتاب في ما أورد من محاضرات قيمة ..

يسوء الكتاب أن أغلب المحاضرات المترجمة من الانجليزية للعربية وهي في الأصل غير انجليزية تكون سيئة وغير مفهومة وفاقدة لقيمتها
