Kad god čitam Andrića, prva misao mi je koliko je njegov tekst raskošan (svaki put mi je baš taj atribut u glavi: raskošan). Kao i da sam ubeđena da mogu da razumem koliko promišljanja, intelektualnog oblikovanja i brušenja stoji iza svake rečenice. Kao čitalac nikako ne mogu da se odlučim između njegove sposobnosti da napravi prikaz i čiste naracije. Čini mi se da uz njega sedim pred pozornicom i lutkarom koji se nadvija nad kulisama vodeći likove. Andrićeve likove recimo nikada ne vidim kao ži ...more

Ljubav od knjige. Kakva može biti sudbina čoveka koji je oduvek bio sam protiv svih? Za njega "nema svanuca"...

But let me come straight to the point. Bosnia is a wonderful country, fascinating, with nothing ordinary in the habitat or people. And just as there are mineral riches under the earth in Bosnia, so undoubtedly are Bosnians rich in hidden moral values, which are more rarely found in their compatriots in other Yugoslav lands. But, you see, there's one thing that the people of Bosnia, at least people of your kind, must realize and never lose sight of--Bosnia is a country of hatred and fear.

Πρώτη επαφή με το έργο του Ίβο Άντριτς και δηλώνω μαγεμένος. Μπορεί σαν βιβλίο να είναι μικρό σε έκταση, όμως θα έλεγα ότι είναι μεγάλο σε μηνύματα και εικόνες. Χρονικά, η ιστορία τοποθετείται λίγο πριν την κατάρρευση της Οθωμανικής Αυτοκρατορίας, στην ξακουστή φυλακή της Κωνσταντινούπολης, την αποκαλούμενη Καταραμένη Αυλή, όπου αθώοι και ένοχοι είναι φυλακισμένοι μέσα, για τον έναν ή τον άλλο λόγο.

Μαγική η πρώτη επαφή μου με τον Αντριτς. Η καταραμένη αυλή ειναι μια ιστορια μέσα σε άλλες ιστορίες που έχει σαν πλαίσιο την ομώνυμη φυλακή. Ο Αντριτς γράφει απλά κ ποιητικά,διεισδύει με άνεση στους χαρακτηρες του κ ταυτόχρονα σχολιάζει την εξουσία κ το ύψιστο σύμβολό της. Λίγο πριν καταρρεύσει η οθωμανική αυτοκρατορία στην καταραμένη αυλή φιλοξενούνται αθώοι κ ένοχοι, όσοι χρειάζονται για να συνεχίσει να λειτουργεί.

Nesta prisão de Istambul estão homens, inocentes ou culpados pouco interessa. Homens com histórias, muitas inventadas, outras deturpadas e uma tão antiga que persiste e enlouquece. Frei Petar, injustamente preso, ouve esta última com especial interesse e, como é característico das melhores histórias, fá-lo perder a noção do tempo, do espaço e de si próprio. O mesmo aconteceu comigo.

Svi smo mi zatočenici proklete avlije, na onaj ili onaj način. Što zbog sredine u kojoj živimo, neshvaćenosti na koju nailazimo, što zbog ličnih problema. Ivo Andrić je majstorski predstavio čovekovu stešnjenost i neslobodu. Jedan svevremenski roman!

Ako hoćeš da znaš kakva je neka država i njena uprava, i kakva im je budućnost, gledaj samo da saznaš koliko u toj zemlji ima čestitih i nevinih ljudi po zatvorima, a koliko je zlikovaca i prestupnika na slobodi. To će ti najbolje kazati.

This is the second work I've read of Andric, the first being one of his more prominent novels, The Bridge on the Drina. Both of these works are very similar, as the novel was a collection of stories centered on the community on the Drina river, and The Damned Yard a collection of stories which centered on Bosnia during the rule of the Ottoman Turks. One could say that the novel had more of a central theme to keep it together, though in essence, there seemed little that would have prevented Andri ...more

I'm honestly angry at myself for not reading this sooner. I don't know why I avoided this book, because once I started, I finished by the end of the day (that may have also been because I really had to read it for school very quickly). Quite short, but still a fascinating read.

Prokleta avlija zatvor je u Carigradu u kojem se odvija velika većina radnje ovog djela. Radnja počinje u manastirskoj ćeliji, prepirkom dvojice fratara, fra Rastislava i fra Mije Josića, koji popisuju inventar koji je ostao iza nedavno preminulog fra Petra. Dok popisuju inventar fra Rastislav prisjeća se priča koje mu je pričao fra Petar dok je bio živ, a posebno onih priča iz vremena kad su ga greškom zatvorili u carigradski zatvor Prokletu avliju, pod upravom zloglasnog upravnika Karađoza.

A parable of violence and paranoia, of individuals caught in history which they cannot escape from. It abounds in brilliant insights in human behavior and society, narration is calm and controlled, the characters are basically metaphors of storytelling itself.

Najbolje je ipak pustiti čoveka da priča slobodno.

Jer, carigradska policija se drži osveštanog načela da je lakše nevina čoveka pustiti iz Proklete avlije nego za krivcem tragati po carigradskim budžacima.

I tako je celog veka ostao ostao i u najužoj vezi sa svetom nereda i kriminala, koji je u mladosti zauvek napustio, i u isto vreme iznad njega i daleko od njega, odeljen svojim položajem i svojim gustim baštama i za druge neprelaznim železnim ogradama i vratnicama.

Volim Andrića, mada Prokleta avlija jeste bila malo teža za razumevanje od njegovih drugih dela i tu me je baš namučio. Iako obimom nevelika, čitala sam je mnogo duže nego što sam predvidela i izdvojila vremena za nju, baš zbog svoje složenosti. Vraćala sam se iznova i iznova na delove koje sam ranije pročitala, iščitavala ih i pokušavala da pronađem paralele između likova. Mislim da ga baš to čini neverovatnim piscem, ta moć da me vrati, probudi sumnju i nedoumicu u meni i natera me da opet pro ...more

لم أجد شيئا مميزا في هذه الرواية.
تتحدث عن سجن الراهب بيتر في "الفناء الملعون" و هو سجن في استانبول، للسياسيين و المجرمين.
حاول الكاتب ان يظهر بشاعة السجن، لكنه لم ينجح في ذلك -حسب رأيي المتواضع- فقد قدّم السجن كمكان فيه مساجين! و سمّاه الفناء الملعون، و لم يأتي بشيء مقنع لاطلاق صفة "الملعون" على هذا السجن.

الحبكة الرئيسية -كما فهمت- تتعلق بقصة الصراع بين السلطان العثماني "بيايزيد" مع أخيه "جمّ"، و كلاهما ابناء السلطان محمد الفاتح. القصة تتعلق بمظلمة "جمّ" و أسره في روما و فرنسا و ايطاليا، و عن مأس

The Damned Yard, or Prokleta Avlija originally is a short book by Ivo Andrić, the literature nobelist. I definitely wasn't very excited when i saw this book on my school reading list. I never quite liked the concept of Andrić and found his work dull.

Andrić je jedan od retkih pisaca čija dela nisu uzbudljiva, ali su interesantna i zanimljiva. Ima fin pristup likovima, na lep način razvija radnju, a i pored toga što je sve kao pod konac, nema monotonosti i izveštačenosti. Jedan od najboljih pisaca, definitivno.
Delo počiva na dve priče, priču o turskom zatvoru nazvanom "Prokleta avlija" i životu zatvorenika u istom, i priči o sultanu Džemu. Izvanredne priče koje svedoče o učmalosti i izveštačenosti društva, sukobu pojedinca i grupe, kao i indi
