"Há já algum tempo que o rio, o rouxinol, os caminhos cruzando os prados desapareceram da cabeça do homem. Já ninguém precisa deles. Quando, amanhã, a natureza desaparecer do planeta, quem é que vai aperceber-se disso? Onde estão os sucessores de Octavio Paz, de René Char? Onde estão ainda os grandes poetas? Terão desaparecido ou a voz deles tornou-se inaudível? Seja como for, que imensa mudança na nossa Europa, outrora impensável sem poetas. Mas se o homem perdeu a necessidade de poesia, será que se apercebe do seu desaparecimento? O fim não é uma explosão apocalíptica. Talvez não haja nada mais tranquilo que o fim." Milan Kundera, 'A Arte do Romance' #milankundera #theartofthenovel #books #livros #authors #writing #writers #escrita #ensaio #essay #europe

Kundera paints a picture of high literary universe made solely by white males. His writing on values is also the talk of a true conservative (well technically he talks about the views of Broch but he never questions them). That is a real shame because the admiration I used to have for him is now quite tarnished. Also I never really got it why do people insist on repeating the narrative of Don Quijote being the first novel when writers wrote novels in antiquity too? #milankundera #theartofthenovel #l'artduroman #nonfiction #bookstagram #igreads

"Irony irritates. Not because it mocks or attacks but because it denies us our certainties by unmasking the world as an ambiguity." —Milan Kundera (1929-), "The Art of the Novel" #milankundera #theartofthenovel #french #literature #literarycriticism #essays #books #czech #writers #irony

New Ink. "The novel has accompanied man uninterruptedly and faithfully since the beginning of the Modern Era. It was then that the "passion to know," which Husserl considered the essence of [...] spirituality, seized upon the novel and led it to scrutinize man's concrete life and protect it against "the forgetting of being"; to hold "the world of life" under a permanent light. That is the sense in which I understand and share Hermann Broch's insistence in repeating: The sole raison d'être of a novel is to discover what only the novel can discover. A novel that does not discover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality." #TheArtOfTheNovel #Kundera #Lebenswelt

Apparently, slowly and carefully wasn't slow enough. Since I'm tired of hearing myself complain, I'm opening a new door: reading and researching while I rest my hands. Any suggestions of business/writing/knitting texts I should add to my reading list?

We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come.

"About half a century ago the history of the novel came to a halt in the empire of the Russian Communism. That is an event of huge importance, given the greatness of the Russian novel from Gogol to Bely. This the death of the novel is not just a fanciful idea. It has already happened. And now we know how the novel dies: it's not that it disappears; its history stops: after that comes nothing but a period of repetition in which the novel keeps duplicating it's form, emptied of its spirit. It's death occurs quietly, unnoticed, and no one is outraged." #milankundera #theartofthenovel #faberandfaber #bookleaves #igreads #vscoreads
