Karl Ove Knausgård könyvei a rukkolán


Karl Ove Knausgård - Szerelem
Hogyan ​lehet alkotni a családi boldogság mellett, amikor a mindennapokat a babakocsizások és a szülői értekezletek tagolják? Knausgard most is a problémák mélyére néz: mit jelenthet a férfiszerep napjainkban? Mi az erő, és mi a gyengédség? Miképpen viszonyul egymáshoz a szabadság és a boldogság? A Szerelem lapjain folytatódik Karl Ove Knausgard küzdelmekkel teli életének története. Az önéletrajzi regényben az elvált író Stockholmba költözik, és kénytelen egyszerre folytatni és újrakezdeni az életét. Itt találkozik második feleségével, leendő gyermekei anyjával. A norvég író hatkötetes regényfolyamának darabjai nem egyenes folytatások, inkább folyamatos újrakezdések és bejárások. Nyitások a létezés újabb és újabb feltáruló zárványai felé. Bárhol kezdjük is olvasni, egy ponton a saját életünkre tudunk rápillantani.

Karl Ove Knausgård - Min ​kamp 1.
Seksbindsverket ​Min kamp har blitt en internasjonal litterær sensasjon og regnes allerede som et vesentlig verk i nyere litteratur. Min kamp. Første bok åpner med en svimlende beskrivelse av døden. Derfra fortelles det om forfatteren Karl Ove Knausgårds kamp for å mestre livet, seg selv og sine egne ambisjoner på skrivingens vegne, i en borende prosa som oppsøker det sårbare, det pinlige og det eksistensielt betydningsbærende.

Karl Ove Knausgård - My ​Struggle 1.
Almost ​ten years have passed since Karl Ove Knausgaard's father drank himself to death. Vulnerable and assailed by doubts, he is now embarking on a new novel. With an uncanny eye for detail, Knausgaard breaks down his own life story to its elementary particles, reliving memories, reopening wounds, and examining with candor the turbulence and the epiphanies that emerge from his own experience of fatherhood, the fallout in the wake of his father's death, and his visceral connection to music, art, and literature. Karl Ove's dilemmas strike nerves that give us raw glimpses of our particular moment in history as we witness what happens to the sensitive and churning mind of a young man trying- as if his very life depended on it- to find his place in the disjointed world around him. This Proustian masterpiece opens a window into one of the most original minds writing today. Intense and vital... The need for totality . . . brings superb, lingering, celestial passages . . . The concluding sentences of the book [are] placid, plain, achieved. They have what Walter Benjamin called 'the epic side of truth, wisdom.' --James Wood, "The New Yorker" "While not unconcerned with finding objective truth in the moments he recounts, Mr. Knausgaard aims first to simply record them, to try to shape the banal into something worth remembering. Beautifully rendered and, at times, painfully observant, his book does a superlative job of finding that "inner core of human existence." --"The Wall Street Journal" Steadily absorbing, lit up by pages of startling insight and harrowing honesty, My Struggle introduces into world literature a singular character and immerses us in his fascinating Underground Man consciousness. -- Philip Lopate Karl Ove--with his shyness, his passion, his honesty--can take on any subject and make it his own. -- Edmund White I read both books [One and Two] hungrily and find myself already missing Knausgaard just a few days after turning A Man in Love's last page, searching the Web for inexpensive crash courses in Norwegian, mostly just wishing Volume Three were available in English now. --Jonathan Callahan, "The Millions" Knausgaard's preternatural facility for description, the dreamy thickness of his prose, speaks not only to the sheer pleasure his fiction affords, but to the philosophical stakes of that pleasure. -- Mark Sussman, "Los Angeles Review of Books"

Karl Ove Knausgård - Autumn
I ​want to show you our world as it is now: the door, the floor, the water tap and the sink, the garden chair close to the wall beneath the kitchen window, the sun, the water, the trees. You will come to see it in your own way, you will experience things for yourself and live a life of your own, so of course it is primarily for my own sake that I am doing this: showing you the world, little one, makes my life worth living. Autumn begins with a letter Karl Ove Knausgaard writes to his unborn daughter. He adds one short piece per day, describing the material and natural world with the precision and mesmerising intensity that have become his trademark. This tender and deeply personal book is beautifully illustrated by Vanessa Baird, and is the first of four volumes marvelling at the vast, unknowable universe around us.

Karl Ove Knausgård - Boyhood ​Island
"Rare ​and Ruthless...Perhaps the most significant literary enterprise of our times". (Guardian). Childhood is exhilarating and terrifying. For the young Karl Ove, new houses, classes and friends are met with manic excitement and creeping dread. Adults occupy godlike positions of power, benevolent in the case of his doting mother, tyrannical in the case of his cruel father. In the now infamously direct style of the My Struggle cycle, Knausgaard describes a time in which victories and defeats are felt keenly and every attempt at self-definition is frustrated. This is a book about family, memory and how we never become quite what we set out to be.

Karl Ove Knausgård - Some ​Rain Must Fall
At ​twenty, Karl Ove moves to Bergen. As the youngest student to be admitted to Bergen's prestigious Writing Academy, Karl Ove arrives full of excitement and writerly aspirations. Soon though, he is stripped of his youthful illusions. His writing is revealed to be puerile and cliched, and his social efforts are a dismal failure. He drowns his shame in drink and rock music. Then, little by little, things begin to change. He falls in love, gives up writing and the beginnings of an adult life take shape. That is, until his self-destructive binges and the irresistible lure of the writer's struggle pull him back. In this latest instalment of the My Struggle cycle, Knausgaard writes with unflinching honesty to deliver the full drama of everyday life.

Karl Ove Knausgård - A ​Death in the Family
First ​of the six books in the My Struggle cycle, this title is about the author's childhood and teenage years, his infatuation with rock music, his relationship with his loving yet almost invisible mother and his distant and unpredictable father, and his bewilderment and grief on his father's death.

Karl Ove Knausgård - A ​Man in Love
A ​book about earth-shattering experience of becoming a father, the mundane struggles of family life, ridiculously unsuccessful holidays, humiliating antenatal music classes, fights with quarrelsome neighbours, the emotional strains of childrens' birthday parties and pushing a pram around Stockholm when all you really want to do is write.

Karl Ove Knausgård - Halál
A ​kortárs világirodalom egyik legizgalmasabb és legeredetibb vállalkozása a norvég író, Karl Ove Knausgård hatkötetes regényfolyama a Harcom. Piaci siker: hazájában közel félmillió példányt adtak el belőle és világtrend: huszonkét nyelvre fordították le eddig. Megjelenése mindenhol beszédtéma és szenzáció lett. A Halál ennek a különleges önéletrajzi sorozatnak az első könyve. Knausgård negyvenévesen kezdte el lenyűgöző munkáját: megírni egy élet történetét egyszerűen és titokzatosan, belátva hogy életünk küzdelme mindig más életekhez kapcsolódik; vagy éppen az első kötet fő motívumához a halálhoz. A szerző saját gyermekkorát és apja életét írja meg annak halálán keresztül. Leszámol vele és elszámol magával, részletesen taglalva a gyarló apa és a tékozló fiú közötti konfliktusokat. A Halál önéletrajz és regény, filozófiai kísérlet és irodalmi botrány. Valaki más életéről olvasva saját létezésünk titkaira és tabuira pillantunk rá. A Harcom nem csupán feszegeti a műfaj határait, új területeket fedez fel az irodalom és az olvasók számára. A sorozat további darabjaiban a szerelem, a játék, az élet és az álom témáján keresztül olvashatjuk tovább egy ember lehetséges-lehetetlen életét, harcát.

Karl Ove Knausgård - Winter
_It ​is strange that you exist, but you don’t know anything about what the world looks like. It’s strange that there is a first time to see the sky, a first time to see the sun, a first time to feel the air against one’s skin. It’s strange that there is a first time to see a face, a tree, a lamp, pyjamas, a shoe. In my life that almost never happens anymore. But soon it will. In just a few months, I will see you for the first time._ In Winter, we rejoin the great Karl Ove Knausgaard as the birth of his daughter draws near. In preparation for her arrival, he takes stock of the world, seeing it anew. While new life is on the horizon, the earth is also in hibernation, waiting for the warmer weather to return. In his inimitably sensitive style, he writes about everything from the moon, winter boots and messiness, to owls and birthdays. Taking nothing for granted, he fills these everyday familiar objects and ideas with new meaning. Startling, compassionate, and exquisitely beautiful, Knausgaard's writing is like nothing else. Somehow, he shows the world as it really is, at once mundane and sublime.
