کتاب ماندارن ها

اثر سیمون دوبووار از انتشارات دنیای نو - مترجم: پرویز شهدی-اگزیستانسیالیسم

In her most famous novel, The Mandarins, Simone de Beauvoir takes an unflinching look at Parisian intellectual society at the end of World War II. In fictionally relating the stories of those around her — Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Arthur Koestler, Nelson Algren — de Beauvoir dissects the emotional and philosophical currents of her time. At once an engrossing drama and an intriguing political tale, The Mandarins is the emotional odyssey of a woman torn between her inner desires and her public life.

معرفی کتاب ماندارن ها از نگاه کاربران
این کتاب با وجود حجم زیاد کشش بی اندازه ای داشت.
اینکه وقتی متوجه گذر عمرت میشوی مفاهیم میتوانند تغییر کنند. اینکه انفعال و مبارزه میتوانند یک اندازه بیهوده باشند و باعث پشیمونی بشند. اینکه سکون و تجربه های جدید به یک اندازه میتوانند باعث نابودی زندگی شوند. اینکه در برابر آنچه میخواهی و آنچه باید بخواهی و آنچه روزی میخواستی و اکنون نسبت به آن مسوولی احساس استیصال میکنی. اینکه مرگ از جایی خارج از دنیای زنده ها بیاید در ردای آسمان آبی ظاهر شود. اینکه اعتماد کردن ارزشش را دارد هرچند قطعا از اعتماد کردن ضربه خواهی خورد. اینکه دوست داشتن و دوست داشته شدن مهم است ولی باعث ضربه خوردن خواهد شد. پرداختن به درونیات و درگیری های فردی افراد که عادت داشتیم در نوشته های داستایفسکی آنها را ببینیم در این کتاب بسیار خودنمایی میکرد و .... همه و همه در این کتاب به کاملترین شکل به تصویر درآمده اند.

This book is an amazing achievement. Ambitious, intelligent, engaging. Its the first of her fiction that Ive read, and I was delighted to find that Simone de Beauvoirs characters were so varied and three-dimensional. But they are not just well-drawn fictional characters; they are interesting people, the intellectuals of post-war France. A couple of well-known (fictional) writers who were heavily engaged in the resistance during war years, continue to grapple with rebuilding a free France in the years after the war. A successful psychoanalyst grapples with loyalty to her family now that her daughter is grown, and her marriage is deeply loving but sexless. A talented singer sacrifices everything for an illusion of love. de Beauvoir would have benefited from a more ruthless edit to save readers from a number of long passages that detailed the back and forth, repetitious debates that characters had with each other and themselves about how committed they were to the new politics of France. But the novel was written in different times, with different technology, and her ability to delineate the nuances of her characters and her society in a loaded historical moment more than makes up for the lack of a good editor.

Yes, its not big literature, it might not even be good literature, but its close to my heart, Ive read it in various key moments of my life and it has always given me something I needed. What author nowadays would dare to reflect so openly and unashamedly about what it means to be an intellectual? No one wants to be an intellectual nowadays, which is a pity, and stupid because what are we? For me, this is a powerful exploration of what is important in life, and no, it never gets old to think about that. Recommended if you like to think about stuff like @why are we alive on earth@ and are not ashamed to think those questions are important.

Also: Nadine and Henri OTP forever!

for all of my bitching and moaning, this was one of those books that answered on one of those Rilkean crying out nights, and it did such a lovely job of telling at least three different stories, and yes, six hundred pages was sometimes a slog, and yes existentialism sometimes makes me reach for a sweater, but I still loved this book and it will be living in my head for a long time.

The Mandarins, sadly, is the only thing I have read by Simone de Beauvoir. And it is great. A fictional account of her relationship with Sartre and the friendship between Sartre and Camus, The Mandarins is a novel that deeply explores interpersonal relationships and gives the reader insight into what may have been between these three famous French intellectuals. The extent to which what Beauvoir writes is historically accurate, I am not sure. However, I think one of the valuable things about this book is that it seems to me that Beauvoir uses it to comment on their relationship, and on relationships, politics, and the world in general, through the use of fiction. Truths are revealed through the fictionalization of lives. A great book. Check out Ron Aaronsons book, Camus and Sartre: The Story of a Friendship and the Quarrel that Ended It to get some of the facts. But Beauvoir is somewhat left out.

Da hat das Buch schon über tausend Seiten und für mich könnte es glatt nochmal so lang weitergehen.
Seit langem habe ich endlich mal wieder etwas von Simone de Beauvoir gelesen und mich gleich wieder wohl gefühlt. Ich liebe ihren Stil, ihre Charaktere, und Geschichten. Man bangt, zweifelt, liebt und desillusioniert sich mit ihnen zusammen.
Mir hat die Abwechslung zwischen den beiden Erzählweisen gut gefallen, auch wenn ich manchmal wegen der zeitlichen Überschneidung etwas verwirrt war.
Zum Inhalt will ich eigentlich gar nicht viel sagen, man merkt, dass in Anne einiges autobiographisches steckt und sich auch Robert und Henri an Sartre und Camus orientieren - und zu wissen, dass sich ihre Liebesgeschichte ebenfalls an ihrem wahren unglücklichen Liebesleben mit dem amerikanischen Schriftsteller Algren orientiert (der übrigens gar nicht erfreut über dieses Buch war, das ihm sogar gewidmet ist), macht das ganze noch etwas intensiver für mich.
