I am reading Satantango at my parents' house. A communist block of flats, tiny cubicles with thin walls, through which the noise of a Tv set penetrates from my neighbor upstairs. Later on, my mother comes in my room and falls asleep on my bed. Poor mom, she is always so tired Soon, the muffled noise of the Tv intermingles with my mother's snores. I am expelled from the depths of evil; I leave behind the colony, the putrid rooms, the decay. I come back to my banal reality. I glimpse at the half-e [...]

For a rainbow-chaser and flower-collector, satan-tango is not exactly the kind of event to spend an many evenings on. The brightness is pleasing odour and the not-so-brightness is forever under verdict. But there I stayed; lurking under the disturbing, frequently tingling, always jagging edges of this strange melody oozing from the tango being played in a far land in Hungary. In an unknown, abandoned terrain, the devil strikes my world with a soft morning hoot, a touch so ethereal, so cajoling t [...]

Satantango by Laszlo Krasznahorkai has received numerous great reviews and write ups but for me this was a very depressing and claustrophobic read. Longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize in 2013 but it was the cover that caught my attention as I browsed in a book shop and I am a sucker for a great cover. In the darkening embers of a communist Utopia, life in a desolate Hungarian village has come to a virtual standstill when the charismatic Irimias long thought to dead returns home. [...]

Laszlo Krasznahorkai's first novel Satantango certainly plays hard-to-get. This cagey, fractal narrative—divided upon itself and reassembled, almost like a cubist painting—delights in disorienting the reader and forcing him to roll up his intellectual sleeves and get down to business. Published originally in 1985, during the decline of European communism, and finally appearing in English translation this month, Satantango offers the story of a Hungarian collective which, despite its formal d [...]

A powerful open text, one rife with both fire and human failures. As I quipped early, it's a Faulkner noir in the Magyar mud. What ripens and stings is more akin to Beckett: a waiting for IKEA, with ideological trappings. The novel opens essentially with a bell in the night. Then it rains. The contemporary reader will ascribe a historical arc to the symbolism, unfortunately the novel was written in 1985. INXS didn't script the Velvet Revolution. Many phenomenon are repositioned after the fact.Th [...]

Satantango, or Satan's Tango, is a wandering, twisted, dark, exhausting snarl of a book. It takes six steps forward, and six steps back, leaving chaos and the blackest of humor.The novel is an allegorical story of a dance with the devil - the characters in their bleak little rainy hole of a village futz around, and every time they try and move forwards, the inertia of their lives drags them back. They dream of the fool's prophet, Irimias, and regress further. Sink into the earth.It's more than E [...]

Contains spoilers.If I change one letter in the famous dictum of Julian of Norwich I can, I think, reach the core of László Krasznahorkai's world-view: All shall be hell, and all shall be hell and all manner of things shall be hell.In Satantango, as in The Melancholy or Resistance and War and War, we are presented with worlds without pity in which all hope is vested in a single possibility which, once realised, begins to make everything much worse than it was and then, of course, there are alw [...]

Ovaj roman je dokaz da je 2016. godina, sve i da ništa drugo više nije bilo prevedeno, uvela u naš čitalački i kulturni krug neverovatno remek-delo. Uvek imam problem sa knjigama koje su slavne jednako koliko i filmovi, ali ova knjiga je učinila da se prvi put zapitam šta bi bilo da su Tarkovski i Felini živi, pa da i oni daju svoju filmsku verziju ovog dela. Neverovatno mi je i dalje da je ovo bilo čiji prvi roman (ili mi je sad već od silnih debitantskih grozota otupela želja da ih [...]

Jasno mi je zašto mahom dobija petice, kao što mi je jasno zašto ljude oduševljava "Sto godina samoće", ali (baš kao i "Sto godina samoće") nema ono što meni treba za 5. Jedan od glavnih saveta koji neki veoma cenjeni predavač daje svojim đacima, polaznicima neke ekstremno elitne francuske kulinarske škole je „kad valja, oduzimaj, nemoj dodavati“.E, da je mlađani Laslo Krasnahorkaj taj savet imao na pameti dok je pisao ovaj roman, moj književni ukus bi pred njim ničice pao u na [...]

In other words, the good doctor is rewriting history and there is nothing the ex-residents of the Hungarian estate can [...]

Krasznahorkai's long sentences is the literary equivalent of Bela Tarr's long takes Bela Tarr's long takes is the cinematic equivalent of Krasznahorkai's long sentences. A sort of mutual commentary, mirrors facing each other, creating new depths of meaning for the reader and for the viewer

A stunning read. Just as Breughel paintings are revered for their almost musical composition, Krasznahorkai’s long-awaited (in English at least) Satantango unfolds likes a piece of music – a tango - in style – but not in tone. And also like Brueghel’s peasants – Kraszhnahorkai’s failures scrape along through the mud in a shambling mess of drunken sin and debauchery - but somehow are never not worth your attention. Satantango is populated by only failures and false prophets. It also w [...]

Una scrittura densa, materica, con frasi lunghe e ricche di subordinate che cercano di riprodurre su carta la lingua parlata, rinunciando così a semplificare i concetti ma esponendoli per come vengono fuori, anche in maniera farraginosa. Una lettura a tratti faticosa, con la quale si fatica ad entrare in sintonia, ma che ripaga dell’attenzione che richiede perché a forza di farsi strada nei meandri della narrazione di Krasznahorkai si finisce per ritrovarsi nel bel mezzo della storia. Una st [...]

Once again, I wrote a full review and then, as I was about to save it, I accidently changed screens and deleted it. It was brilliant. It really was. I spent two hours on it.I even made some great connections to Goethe's Faust (Easter bells announcing the resurrection and 'Walpurgisnacht') and to Nietzsche's eternal return. I believe that I have captured the spirit of the book by deleting the review. Absurd.I highly recommend it.

László Krasznahorkai is a modern literary genius. Forget about your modern American authors, they cannot begin to compare to Krasznahorkai's work. It doesn't matter whether or not you can pronounce his name. Yes, this is the only author alive who does not know periods exist. Yes, his sentences run forever long across pages. Yes, his work might be difficult to read but his stories are amazing. So step outside of your comfort box and give him a try. It's not like you're disassociating yourself w [...]

A wickedly smart tale with a delicious sting in its tail. No one does Bleakness like these European writers.Satantango with its "suffocating sense of sadness," is not for everyone.Better steal NR's 'Filmed' shelf & watch Béla Tarr's looong, haunting, cult movie:/title/tt0111341/But here's the rub: even the movie is not for everyone- didn't I mention 'cult'?Edit: 23/5/15Here's a fantastic review of the book:nybooks/articles/archi

”Il suo bicchiere si rovesciò, il vino si allargò sulla stoffa dapprima formando il disegno di un cadavere di cane investito e spiaccicato, poi – passando attraverso molte altre forme mutevoli e sovrapposte – venne assorbito dal tessuto, lasciando indietro una macchia dai contorni incerti e difficilmente definibili (assorbito? sarebbe più corretto dire che precipitò attraverso la trama del tessuto per poi allargarsi sulla superficie irregolare del tavolo, creando un sistema di pozzette [...]

a book i wished to return to not one i could not put down. the author leads us on a bleak following of people left with no tangible sense of hope. they escape the experience of life and themselves through a variety of means of withdrawal and avoidance while they wait the return of a dubious character, who they have imbued with the powers of saving them. they ask not for particulars but bolster each other in their faith. the book is filled with religious-spiritual nihilistic dance steps. i found [...]

E' arrivato Godot questo compatto e oscuro libro gira intorno al fulcro rappresentato dalla figura mitica del Salvatore, dell'Uomo della Provvidenza, del Messia - cioè dell'agente esterno in cui si unificano tutte le speranze, i timori, le attese degli uomini (cioè di noi tutti).E qui gli uomini sono davvero ad un passo dalla disintegrazione, fisica e spirituale - ammassati in un lugubre luogo devastato dalla decadenza post-sovietiva, appesantiti da una pioggia incessante che porta il marcio e [...]

Irimiás scrapes the mud off his lead-heavy shoes, clears his throat, cautiously opens the door, and the rain begins again, while to the east, swift as memory, the sky brightens, scarlet and pale-blue and leans against the undulating horizon, to be followed by the sun, like a beggar daily panting up to his spot on the temple steps, full of heartbreak and misery, ready to establish the world of shadows, to separate the trees one from the other, to raise, out of the freezing, confusing homogeneity [...]

Uvjerena sam da se ova knjiga zove Sátántangó isključivo jer bolje zvuči od Sátáncsárdás.Roman se otvara rečenicom u kojoj se jedan od likova budi iz sna da bi se suočio sa situacijom (kao i Gregor Samsa) koja je apsolutno apsurdna: začetak trodnevne kišurine (koja stalno, komično i opresivno, pada), zvonjava zvona koja ne postoje, hladnoća, blato, opći užas. Neka halucinantna zavjera se pojavljuje kao predosjećaj apokaliptičnog propadanja. Površno, čini se da se pojedini (b [...]

La storia. Non si capisce niente per buona parte del libro. Un caos totale. Si familiarizza con i personaggi, ma non si capisce quale sia il loro ruolo all'interno del romanzo. E soprattutto non si capisce che storia stia raccontando l'ungherese Krasznahorkai. Tanto che verrebbe da chiedergli, per oltre 200 pagine: "Ma di che cosa stiamo parlando?". A spingermi a continuare a leggere questo libro incomprensibile è stata sia la poesia che ho intravisto in alcune frasi (eh lo so, è il mio punto [...]

Structured with the forward/back variations of a tango dance, Krasznahorkai weaves in an itinerant narrative of a fallen village/ideology in which hopes & deceptions & visions & depravity & nostalgia & wishes & manipulations guide characters in their rises and falling, with schemes concocted at times as if they were possessed.It's very sad, in that characters are displayed taking action or inaction while at wits end and also subscribing to a devotion of fantasy of some so [...]
