215 Die taube The Pigeon, Patrick S skindThe Pigeon German Die Taube is a novella by Patrick S skind about the fictional character Jonathan Noel, a solitary Parisian bank security guard who undergoes an existential crisis when a pigeon roosts in front of his one room apartment s door, prohibiting him entrance to his private sanctuary The story takes place in the span of one day, and follows how this seemingly insignificant event compounds to threaten Noel s sanity The titular pigeon can be a symbol for disorder intruding on the protagonist s meticulously organized existence, and is obviously in ironic intertextual dialogue with U.S writer Edgar Allan Poe s 1845 poem The Raven, which features its titular bird perched over its protagonist s door instead of M Noel s pigeon This book is S skind s followup to his nine year bestselling first novel, Perfume 2012 1 1384 87 9643058808 1384 20 2 1384 87 9648433151 20 What Passes For SuccessHe was not a man of action He was a man of resignationAnd consequently, he was also a man of strict routine, of rigid habit, of acute sensitivity to any deviation from the expected Suskind s anti protagonist is also emotional he suffers anger and fear, and resentments But these emotions are provoked only by events, mostly trivial except to him, not by memory or positive desire of any sort He wants nothing other than what he has, especially when the little he has is threatened Until the moment of self recognition, the moment when his whole life is explained in an instant as one trapped in childhood traumayou re a child, you only dreamed that you had grown up to be a disgusting old guard in Paris, but you re a child and you re sitting in the cellar of your parents house, and outside is war, and you re trapped, buried, forgotten Why don t they come Why don t they rescue me Why is it so deathly still Where are the other people My God, where are the other people I simply cannot live without other peopleLearning how to survive without other people had become not just a necessary tactic but an end in itself The Dutch build polders, perhaps simply because they can South Americans have revolutions because they know how Americans arm teachers with guns because well just because To what degree do all of us find ourselves similarly trapped by the successful tactics of youth Very special, strange, offbeat and absurd, novel in which a man quickly saw a midlife crisis Not that famous episode of midlife crisis , not a crisis related to the meeting with a common bird This story is actually based on the panic of a man in his fifties ordinary, routine and taciturn, who is faced with the presence of a pigeon in the corridor leading to his room The action of the book takes place over a very short period, during which the author indulges in a psychological study of his character I think that this book, because of its strangeness, can t leave the reader indifferent Well written text, properly conducted history A book to discover, not if only out of curiosity. , . . hebergement d image image a telecharger gratuitement herbergeur d image. .
