Over the last few weeks I’ve read The Luzhin Defense, followed by Bluebeard and then Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Originally I was going to write some stuff here about the central characters and compare them with the original Outsider. I was going to say things like this:

Maybe it is a contradiction in terms, to put 3 books about outsiders in the same review, but I can’t stop myself.

We have here a chess player, a doctor who might or might not have murdered a wife and a chickenhead. They a

Steffies Kommentar zwingt mich ja fast zu einer Rezi, also Folge ich den Spuren von Mäxchen Frisch und Recylce einfach einen Eintrag von heute Morgen aus dem Gantenbein-Thread:

Eifersucht und ihre Auswirkungen, an diesem Thema hat sich Max Frisch Zeit seines Leben geradezu zwanghaft abgekauft, auch in diesem ziemlich zahnlosen Erguss, der inhaltlich etwa 15 Seiten Gantenbein entspricht, aber auf zehnfache Länge gestreckt wurde. Ein neuer Aspekt ist vielleicht ein Selbstgespräch des frei gesproche

Ах, този Хер Фриш... Много ме изненада с тази книга. Обран, пестелив и студен, а структурата на тази новела е наистина нетрадиционна - разказ като монтаж, сглобен от диалози по време на съдебния процес срещу главния герой Д-р Шад, обвинен в убийството на бившата си съпруга, монолози и негови спомени, сънища и дори халюцинации след оправдателната присъда. Оправдан поради липса на доказателства, как се живее така? Това е началото на разказа. Темите: вината, представата, която имаш за себе си и общ ...more

Naja. Die Frage nach Schuld und Unschuld, respektive Passivschuld, Erinnerungsvermögen, Verdrängen und Vergessen ist durchaus interessant, allerdings fand ich die Geschichte doch etwas fad und abgestanden (erschienen 1982).

Just as I flipped the final page of this novel we found ourselves queuing at a toll booth on a French motorway.

My wife: “Look at that car in front of us. That dog has precious little space in the booth”.
Our son: “But so does our cat when we ferry her to grandma in her little pet carrier.”
Me: “That’s true. And perhaps these people in front of us are only using the motorway for a very short while. The dog might be out of the car very soon.”

Guilt? Innocence? Different perspectives, many questions

"Blaubart" ist im Original ein französisches Märchen von Charles Perrault, nachzulesen hier: http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/buch/char...

Max Frischs Blaubart heisst Felix Schaad und wurde verdächtigt, seine Ex-Frau ermordet zu haben, schliesslich aber - aus Mangel an Beweisen - freigesprochen. Der Text ist eine Montage aus innerem Monolog und der Gerichtsverhandlung in Schaads Erinnerung. Sein anschliessender Freispruch bringt ihm jedoch keine Erleichterung; die Frage nach Schuld bleibt allgegenwärt

This is a powerful tautly written book about guilt and innocence, and how these states can not be decided by anyone outside oneself. Deeply moving.


Two years ago I wrote:
A strange book. A woman is murdered. Her ex-husband is acquitted of the crime. (You find this our at the very beginning). He denies guilt but his memory is cloudy. For the rest of the book he is reliving the trial and all the tawdry details of his life that were brought out. Interesting, but the book is choppy and we get no insig

It's strange, I mean... it has no "real" conclusion, except your own, so it's a piece of inflection by the idea of playing with different realities in time as the characters "forget" the real reality, or the one that carries the consequence of a murder, so the evasion is just the way to play the reader to make their own conclusion.

Creepy, and a bit surreal - in a subtle way for most of the story but forcefully so near the end.

Max Frisch wrote an interesting story, a retelling of a Bluebeard fairy tale, written from the point of view of a Bluebeard himself, or rather focusing on a husband, who is accused of murdering his last wife. The book is written in a way that it mixes the interviewing of witnesses and the accused in the court and of his own memories and recollections. It gives a reader an unsettling feeling, it confuses and one doesn't know anymore if he's a victim himself or a murderer. And until the last momen ...more

მაქს ფრიშისთვის ჩვეული თემები. ადამიანებთან და საკუთარ თავებთან გაუცხოების თემა. თავიდან ცოტა მოსაწყენი მომეჩვენა, დაკითხვის მომენტები. თანდათან გიჩნდება ემპათია ბრალდებულის მიმართ, ხვდები რომ ამ საწყალ კაცზე არავის არაფერი ახსოვს და უფრო უარესი, თვითონაც არ ახსოვს საკუთარი თავი. შვიდი ცოლიდან არცერთთან არ აღმოაჩნდება ისეთი რამ, რაც ორივე მათგანს ახსოვს. საერთო მოგონებები არ არსებობს.
დასასრულიც ღია აქვს. ალბათ მკითხველმა უნდა აირჩიოს შეეძლო თუ არა მას ცოლის მოკვლა.

Garage sale find. Sparse and a bit tedious narrative, which brilliantly puts you in the mind of the very Swiss and Germanic narrator. The title, Bluebeard, is loaded with Western symbolism. The story speaks to the tenuous nature of memory, and thus human consciousness. Anyone who has ever been gaslighted by an attorney, as explained here http://goo.gl/mmZucP will appreciate this book.

I didn’t like the ending much. To be honest, I might have liked the book more overall in English — but maybe not. I followed it in German surprisingly well.

"The victim smiling (with harpoon)."

It feels like Frisch is nowadays one of those forgotten geniuses of what I call Alpine high surrealism, along with folks like Robert Musil , Thomas Bernhard and Ingeborg Bachmann (among many others). The style is sparse and bizarre and not really like anything you'll encounter elsewhere.
Frisch is much more austere and unsettling than the others, though. "Bluebeard" is the skeletal story of a doctor accused of murdering one of his six wives. The novel is framed

Splendid narration and a staggering illustration of one's alienation with self and reality. Pressured by the interpretations of the society, that intrudes with individual's mind and creates anxiety, Sr. Schaad has a scattered perception of happenings, brilliantly narrated by Frisch in a disruptive manner.
Juan de Dios Reyes
No pude encontrarle la vuelta... En realidad es relativamente fácil la trama, pero nunca pude creer de verdad que un prosecutor actuara así... Nunca me creí que fuesen testimonios de un juicio real y tampoco pude apreciar la "conversión" del protagonista. Definitivamente no me hizo sentido.

A delightfully playful, oddly dark novella that is lightly absurd and changes as it goes along in ways I’ve never seen before. I especially liked the way Frisch played with the criminal trial as a form of storytelling. An entertaining and singular reading experience.

Not one of Frisch's better ones, but like MAN IN THE HOLOCENE, you can finish it in a couple of hours, which is a plus. Basically, the protagonist has been found innocent of the murder of his wife, and his conscience continues to put him on trial.

De frisse verbeelding en de zwierige stijl houden deze roman spijtig genoeg niet staande. Een mineure versie van Robert Pingets superieure 'L'inquisitoire'.
