This is V.S. Naipaul’s first poem, Two Thirty A M, written as “an adolescent cry of pain” when the future Nobel Prize winner was only 18. It also happens to be his only poem. The poem, along with four short stories and a radio play, written by Naipaul when he was a struggling young man fighting to get out of the literary ghetto of Caribbean writers in London, has been uncovered by his biographer, Patrick French, within the massive but well-recorded archives of the BBC. #vsnaipaul #naipaul #vsn #twothirtyam #poem #poetry #onlypoem #pain #strugglingwriter #adolescentcry #achesoftheheart #nobellaureate #thetelegraph #myfavouriteauthor #ripnaipaul

. ORANG-ORANG FAVORIT SAYA TINGGAL DI JALAN MIGUEL . Omongan John Lennon amat cocok untuk memulai pembicaraan ini. Ada tempat-tempat yang saya ingat sepanjang hidup walaupun beberapa di antaranya telah berubah. Tapi semua tempat itu punya momennya sendiri-sendiri. Itulah yang terbersit ketika baru-baru ini seorang teman mengajak saya ke suatu daerah dan bercengkerama dengan para penduduknya. Tempat itu berada di Pelabuhan Spanyol, Trinidad Tobago. Namanya Jalan Miguel, sebuah daerah yang katanya kumuh tapi dipenuhi orang-orang berkepribadian menarik. Dari montir yang suka menyanyikan larik-larik Ramayana, tukang kembang api yang ingin sekali membuat orang tertawa, sampai ibu-ibu yang punya anak delapan dari tujuh lelaki. Kadang saya menjumpai mereka di dalam rumahnya. Lebih sering dia mengajak saya menemui mereka di tempat nongkrong favorit kebanyakan mereka: di trotoar depan rumah seorang lelaki yang amat dihormatinya. Begitulah sambil kadang saling pamer kehebatan, membual, dan menggunjingkan perang, tentara, sampai naik turunnya peruntungan orang-orang yang ada di Jalan Miguel (terutama dalam hal bercinta), mereka nyanyi bersama lagu kalipso. .

Reading A Bend in the River by V. S. Naipaul. Finished: All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews. Rating: 3/5. The subject matter of this novel was irresistible. What do you do when your favourite person in the world wants to die? And wants your help? That’s the question at the heart of this novel, a story about two sisters: the narrator Yolandi and her brilliant sister Elfrieda, who suffers from a “weariness of life” and doesn’t want any part in it. She wants out. What is love’s place here? Is love helping your sister with assisted suicide, or is it fighting to the end, hoping she’ll change her mind one day and want to live, which part of you knows won’t happen? How do you listen and respect her autonomy? Is it not better to help, be there with her, do it together, rather than wait for the day she’ll end her life on her own, alone? What a situation to be in. I personally believe in euthanasia, but it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t find the situation impossible if I were in it. And this was actually a lived experience by the novel’s author Miriam Toews, whose sister wanted to die. The writing cascades, it’s pacey and agile. Yolandi’s voice is full of rage and grief and humour. She’s going silly with it. If not for the humour the story would be unremittingly grim, but Toews skillfully balances the tone between heartbreak and an acidic laugh at life’s big terrible jokes. Unfortunately I felt like it dragged on a bit and would’ve been much better if it were 50 pages shorter, but that’s just me and I’m sure it’s gorgeous as it is for others. Books don’t usually make me cry, but when I reached the end of this one my chin wobbled, just slightly. (Note: my chin doesn’t really wobble when I cry. I’m a pretty crier.)
Como toda boa obra de ficção, o livro de outubro foi bem elaborado, envolve sonhos e desperta a imaginação.😲 . Uma casa para o Sr. Biswas, do ganhador do Nobel V.S. Naipaul, foi inspirado na infância e adolescência do autor, o protagonista do livro foi baseado nas lembranças das ações e sonhos de seu pai. V.S. Naipaul conquistou reconhecimento mundial com essa obra que podemos definir como: "Um romance provido de drama e um pouco de comédia que gira em torno da maior ambição do protagonista de conquistar sua casa própria."

- 艾薇拉投票記 The Suffrage of Elvira V.S.奈波爾 V. S. Naipaul 譯者:劉韻韶 出版:時報出版 - 「民主這檔事,每個人都摩拳擦掌、迫不及待地一頭栽進去;但我跟你說,這世上所有的甜頭,最初都是甜的,最後卻是酸苦地要命。」 - 初認識奈波爾這個名字是在某間網路書店的諾貝爾文學獎作家介紹中得知的,當時有了初步印象,所以之後瀏覽圖書館書籍時一發現就決定借來閱讀。此書為黑色幽默三部曲中之一,是我第一次讀奈波爾的作品,但老實說這本不是我常讀的類型劇情方面也比較平淡一點,可能比較不對我的胃口,所以反而花了較多的時間才讀完。 主要描述1950年代發生於印度千里達(也是奈波爾的故鄉)的一場鄉下選舉,究竟「民主」該如何定義呢?故事背景設在千里達將脫離英國殖民即將邁入民主政治,第一次選舉時眾人認為投其所好即為民主,待第二次選舉大家都明白自己所中的選票極有價值。各種抹黑、賄選、敲詐,金錢或物質的往來無奇不有,候選人甚至沒有提出任何政見直接公開賄選,完全是一場的鬧劇。 奈波爾以諷刺的寫作手法來敘述整場荒誕的選舉戲碼,而月底適逢台灣九合一選舉,充斥著各種政治新聞及各個候選人旗幟標語,書中表現各種人性貪婪與處心積慮地操弄選民,因為是小說所以讀者能綜觀所有,但現實中各種賄選操盤抹黑層出不窮是否也暗藏許多心機,不知該說上述這些到底是人民無法得知呢?還是其實大家是心照不宣啊? 對於政治坦白說我沒有很深入瞭解,但是隨著年紀增長也明白了所做的每個選擇都是對想要什麼樣的未來而做的決定,別輕易放棄能做決定的時刻。 有沒有人有看過此書或是看過奈波爾的作品可以和我分享嗎?覺得網路上的心得分享不多呢 感謝您蒞臨本齋,歡迎與我交流! #艾薇拉投票記 #thesuffrageofelvira #vs奈波爾 #vsnaipaul #小說 #時報出版 #劉韻韶 #選舉 #諷刺

To have lived and died as one had been born, unnecessary and unaccommodated Prologue, A House for Mr Biswas QOTD : What is your current read? I am reading 'A House for Mr Biswas' by the legendary V.S. Naipaul and I am loving every bit of this genius piece. I will recommend it to everyone even before completing it myself because I've realised the value of it. The plot is robust and the language impeccable. No wonder he is tauted as one of the greatest novelist of 20th Century Blurb Born the 'wrong way' with an extra finger and thrust into a world that greeted him with little more than a bad omen, Mohun Biswas has spent his 46 years of life striving for independence. Shuttled from one residence to another after the drowning of his father, he yearns for a place he can call home. He marries into the Tulsi family, on whom he becomes dependent, but rebels and takes on a succession of occupations in a struggle to weaken their hold over him I deeply feel the character of Mr. Biswas was massively influenced by Naipaul Sir's own persona in a fundamental way. Mr. Biswas is the same wandered, ever searching soul of his freedom, his home and his roots. So raw and beautiful It is a literary treat from the Nobel Prize Laureate fort Literature I will post a full review soon when I complete it Happy Reading! #vsnaipaul #ahouseformrbiswas #fiction #reading #bookstagram #bibliophile #legend #bookblogger #life #love #home #travel #explore #trinidad #bookphotography #reader #india #photooftheday #booklover #bookworm #vidiadhar #mrbiswas
"En el siglo XIX, durante sesenta o setenta años, la novela europea, que se desarrolló rápidamente en manos de una serie de maestros, se convirtió en un instrumento extraordinario. Consiguió lo que no podría haber conseguido ningún otro género literario, ensayo, poesía, teatro, historia. Gracias a ella, la sociedad industrial, industrializada o moderna, adquirió una idea muy clara de sí misma. Mostró con inmediatez lo que no se había mostrado antes, y cambió la visión de las cosas. Más adelante podrían modificarse ciertos aspectos del género, o jugar con ellos, pero ya se había establecido el modelo de la novela moderna y trazado su programa. Los que hemos llegado después somos simples derivados. Ya no podemos ser los primeros. Podemos aportar material nuevo, lejano, pero el programa que seguimos ya está trazado. No podemos considerarnos el equivalente en la escritura de Robinson Crusoe en su isla, descargando «el primer tiro de rifle que se dispara aquí desde la creación del mundo». Para ceñirnos a la metáfora, ese es el primer disparo que oímos cuando volvemos la mirada hacia los fundadores. Fueron los primeros y no lo sabían cuando empezaron, pero después (como Maquiavelo en los Discursos y Montaigne en los Ensayos) sí lo saben, y el descubrimiento los entusiasma. Ese entusiasmo se nos transmite, y surge una fuerza irrepetible en la escritura." Momentos literarios, V.S.Naipaul, Debolsillo

In memoriam of two great icons: both are writers, visionaries, and making an impact on the world and on people. Thank you to #ArethaFranklin and #VSNaipaul . Franklin was the singer and legend of such hits #Respect , just to name a few. And Naipaul the writer, novelist, and poet, originally born in Trinidad and Tobago wrote hundreds of book and sold around the world. Thank you.
For a long time now I've heard about the writings of V S Naipaul, in the context of an Indian expatriate visiting India for the first time in his 20s and subsequently twice more (at least for the 3 books about his travels). And most of what I've heard is equal parts appreciative as well as critical. The 3 books are entitled "An Area of Darkness", "A Wounded Civilization" and "A Million Mutinies Now", all packaged into one by @picadorbooks. All 3 are travelogues of his time in India, travelling to various parts across the sub-continent, speaking to various people and observing aspects of their daily lives. I confess to being divided on my personal opinion of his writings. On the one hand, as an Indian expat myself, I could relate to his observances of the daily lives that people do go through, including the squalor that he writes about when visiting slums and other areas. When I visit India, I see the same things that he does, note the same processes and hoops you have to go through to get a simple thing done. On the other hand, I'm not a person who is unforgiving about the position people are in and how they have to adapt themselves, not just with their living conditions, but also their state of mind. His focus is always on the negative, and even positive mentions in the books are always turned around immediately with a counter-narrative. His writing style is at once heavy as well as frivolous, requiring you to both keep an open mind about what you're reading as well as focus on the intent behind the words. Certainly something I would recommend to people who want to understand an expatriate view of India where you haven't grown up there, but keeping in mind this is just one man's opinion and should not be taken as representative of what India comprises of. . . . . #bookstagram #booksporn #booksofinstagram #bookreview #bookshelfdecor #books #bookaholics #book #bookobsessed #bookstagrammer #bookshelf #booknerds #bookphotography #bookreviews #bookshelfdesign #bookrecommendations #bookworm #booknerd #bookreviewer #bookshelfporn #readabook #readingisfun #readingiscool #reading_time #vsnaipaul #picador #read #readabook #readingcorner #readingisfundamental

Ler e Escrever, de V.S. Naipaul, é um livro de bolso da Editora Ayine e faz parte da Coleção Biblioteca Antagonista. Este é o segundo livro dessa coleção que leio e começo a desconfiar que tudo da Coleção Biblioteca Antagonista vale a pena (o outro que li foi Viagem à Rússia, de Joseph Roth). Ler e Escrever é composto de dois breves ensaios - um intitulado Ler e Escrever e outro, O Escritor e a Índia - e do discurso Dois Mundos, para o Prêmio Nobel recebido por V.S.Naipaul em 2001. V.S. Naipaul é um escritor que desperta minha curiosidade - escreve lindamente e transformou sua inadequação no mundo pos-colonial na matéria de sua obra, mas ao mesmo tempo despertando controvérsia por trazer à luz da literatura a existência da miséria material e intelectual dessas colônias antes mesmo da chamada colonização. É como se Naipaul conseguisse, de modo belo e improvável, incorporar colonizador e colônia. Amo livros sobre livros e amei este livrinho maravilhoso. O primeiro ensaio é o relato de como o sonho de ser escritor foi se tornando realidade à medida em que o autor foi entendendo sua história e seu lugar no mundo. O segundo ensaio é sobre como o autor incorporou a Índia à sua literatura, como conseguiu ver além da miséria e da mágoa colonialista. Por fim, o discurso do Nobel trata da distinção entre os dois mundos de um escritor- sua vida pessoal, seus hábitos, etc, versus o mundo contido em seus livros, em sua obra. Sainte- Beuve, crítico francês , falava que conhecer a vida de um escritor iluminaria sua obra. Proust escreve um ensaio "Contra Sainte- Beuve" - para Proust um livro é produto de um eu distinto do eu manifestado em nossos hábitos, nossa vida social... V.S. Naipaul se utiliza da reflexão de Proust sobre os dois mundos de um escritor para falar como se descobriu um escritor intuitivo e como encontrou seus temas e sua forma de abordar esses temas. Enfim, recomendo muito para quem se interessa em saber mais sobre a arte da escrita e, em particular, sobre V.S. Naipaul. Fiquei querendo ler mais desse autor britânico. ESTRELAS: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
He certainly wasn’t an easy man, he was complex in every way, a product of his heritage. I find it disconcerting that we seem to live in a world increasingly enamored of the stark contrasts of black and white and the moral fundamentalism of simpletons. I did not care for many of his views but I respected his literary talent, his intellectual prowess and his drive. He was the logical 20th century epilogue to a five century narrative of imperialism adventurism and colonial xenophobia, we wanted him to be easily cataloged and enlightened in a particular way and instead he insisted on being his own contradictory, three dimensional being. I wonder what shall become of the legacies of these wondrous leviathans, those who’s internal shadows inspire the visions that affirm our humanity with all of its contradictions and frailties, what future is left in being flawed? V.S. Naipaul, 1932-2018. #vsnaipaul #bookhawk1
«A stranger could drive through Miguel Street and just say ‘Slum!’ because he could see no more. But we, who lived there, saw our street as a world, where everybody was quite different from everybody else. Man-man was mad; George was stupid; Big Foot was a bully; Hat was an adventurer; Popo was a philosopher; and Morgan was our comedian.» ☺️💙 #onequotetwoemojies #bookreview #vsnaipaul #miguelstreet #nobellaureate #picador
Jalan Miguel | V.S. Naipaul Sketsa-sketsa ini ditulis dengan begitu ringan, hingga tragedi terasa subtil dan komedi terasa kental, namun suara kebenaran senantiasa terdengar kuat di dalamnya -New York Times- V.S. Naipaul adalah penulis Inggris keturunan India-Nepal yang mendapatkan Nobel Sastra di tahun 2001. Dalam beberapa buku ia memusatkan diri pada peran agama, seperti islam, dan ia menuai kritikan karena bertumpu dari sudut negatif, seperti nihilisme di antara fundamentalis #vsnaipaul #jalanmiguel #bukusastra #sastrawannobel
📖 Her şeyi yaşamında ilk kez yaparmış gibi yapardı. Her şeyi kutsal bir törene uyarmış gibi yapardı. Bana, "Bir dondurmaya ne dersin? " derdi. Ben evet deyince, birden ciddileşir, "Şimdi hangi pastaneye onur versek dersin? diye sorardı. Sanki çok önemliymiş gibi. Bir süre düşünür sonunda," Bence bu alışverişi şu dükkânla görüşsek, " derdi. 😊 V. S. Naipaul Miguel Sokağı Naipaul, neden kendi insanını bu kadar samimi ve sıcak anlatıyorken kendini onlardan üstün tutma eğilimi gösterdin anlayamadım... Herkesin kendi yolu vardır.. Ve herkesin öğreneceği bir dolu dünya... Değil mi sayın Naipaul? Dünyaları anlatmak önce onu kabul etmekten geçer.. Onu özümsemekten geçer. Onu küçük görmekten ya da ince bir alayla anlatmaktan değil. Zira bu asla aklın göstergesi değildir. Tam tersi, bir sorunun mu var diye düşünülür... Değil mi sayın Naipaul? 🐢 #vsnaipaul

Current read. Relishing it. When I was much younger I remember seeing books by Naipaul on my father’s bookshelf. How I wish I could share & discuss them with him now. When I lost him there was just so much I didn’t understand then that I do now. Long to read with him side by side like we used to although he would always interrupt me to talk. I didn’t appreciate it then but I do now. #vsnaipaul #lettersbetweenafatherandson #winnerofthenobelprizeinliterature #missmypapa #loss #grief #papamyconfidante #readinghabit #readingbooks #nonfiction #ilovebooks #iloveliterature

"How terrible it would have been. . . to have lived without even attempting to lay claim to one’s portion of the earth; to have lived and died as one has been born, unnecessary and unaccommodated."

Trinidad-born British writer V. S. Naipaul (1932-2018) was an important public figure who dealt uncompromisingly with themes of place and identity in postcolonial worlds for over four decades. . A paradoxical figure, critics accused Naipaul of holding the West Indies and other parts and peoples of the developing world in contempt, while seemingly "writing back" in response to the cultural and political forces of Empire. Edward Said decried Naipaul as a "witness for the western prosecution". . 📖: Nevertheless, Naipaul's works such as "A House for Mr. Biswas" and "A Bend in the River" continue to be cited and studied by postcolonial theorists as important contributions to the field. . . . . . #naipaul #vsnaipaul #said #edwardsaid #edwardwsaid #postcolonial #postcolonialism #postcolonialtheory #postcolonialliterature #literature #interview #literaturequotes #interviewquotes #abendintheriver #ahouseformrbiswas #imperialism #empire #ourhumanity #trinidad #britishwriters #nobellaureate #nobellaureates #picoftheday #instadaily #bestoftheday #followme

. "Jalan Miguel" (judul asli: "Miguel Street") memuat 17 cerita pendek yang saling-sambung. Meski demikian, masing-masing ceritanya juga bisa dibaca secara terpisah. Ini adalah buku pertama yang ditulis oleh V. S. Naipaul, meskipun bukan bukunya yang pertama kali diterbitkan. . . Berlatar masa perang di Trinidad dan Tobago, cerita-cerita di dalam buku ini menggambarkan kenangan masa kecil Naipaul di Pelabuhan Spanyol. Nama 'Jalan Miguel' adalah versi fiksional dari Jalan Luis, tempat di mana Naipaul tinggal bersama keluarganya pada tahun 1940an. Naipaul memotret banyak hal di Jalan Miguel, mulai dari kehidupan anak-anak jalan, kekerasan terhadap perempuan, tradisi kalipsonian, budaya Hindu, hingga perang dan perpolitikan. . . Naipaul menulis cerita-cerita di dalam "Jalan Miguel" ketika magang di BBC, London. André Deutsch, penerbitnya kala itu, agak ragu menerbitkan sebuah kumpulan cerita pendek dari seorang penulis Trinidad tak dikenal, sebagaimana adanya Naipaul saat itu; penerbit berpikir bahwa sebuah novel pasti akan lebih meraih sukses dan mendukung Naipaul untuk menulis novelnya. Deutsch menerbitkan "Miguel Street" setelah dua novel pertama Naipaul--"The Mystic Masseur" (1957) dan "The Suffrage of Elvira" (1958)--terbit. "Miguel Street" memenangkan Somerset Maugham Award pada tahun 1961. . .

From recent reads! If you are thinking of what to read next, read along! Here I have two books that I just finished. #Hygge #thelittlebookofhygge I actually decided to read The Little Book of Hygge after listening to #Freakonomicspodcast regarding happiness, and wanted to explore more as to why Danish people are so happy. Now I understand! Also realized that Turkish people have very hyggeligt moments accompanied by tea, family and friends, too. I am guessing the reason the Turkish are not happy as much is due to politics, unstable economy as well as some stuff related to religion. #halfalife #vsnaipaul On a separate note for V. S. Naipaul and post-colonial literature, if you love reading about people, lost in between cultures, like me, go ahead and read Half a Life, you may complete yours while contemplating on main character Willie's life. Always love #postcolonial literature. #read #reading #bookstoread #goodreads #bookworm Now to new book adventures :)
