Out of Africa Download ✓ 102 Nelaiminga meilė vyrams ir laiminga meilė Afrikai Taip galima apibūdinti K Blixen gyvenimą kuris primena aštraus siužeto romaną Iš tėvo metus praleidusio tarp Amerikos indėnų o vėliau pasikorusio Kopenhagoje Karen paveldėjo nuotykių ieškotojos dvasią Jaunystėje paskelbusi kelias apysakas 1914 m su savo vyru ji išvyko į Keniją ir Ngongo kalnų papėdėje įkūrė kavos fermą Čia ji praleido 17 įspūdingiausių gyvenimo metų k. I once had a crush on Karen Blixen at the shores of Rungstedlund Travelling my life like Odysseus the mythical Mediterranean seas I found myself in front of a majestic house on a strip of Danish coastline some ten years ago and in the company of my lively bunch of toddlers aged approximately 4 25 and 05 years While I walked reverently in the footsteps of Karen Blixen studiously scrutinising every single letter and photograph on display in the exhibition my family ran wild outside enjoying the closeness to the sea and the summer breeze and a caf just on the waterfront A perfect set up When I reluctantly left the museum I carried with me a book bought in the gift shop the only one by Blixen I had not borrowed in my local library because I wanted to own it myself My copy of Out Of Africa carries a sticker with the silhouette of Karen Blixen and a label of Karen Blixen Museet Rungstedlund It also tells me that I paid 140 Danish crowns for it marked in pencil inside the coverWhat you experience intensely becomes part of who you are It changes your perception of the world and makes you different When I read Karen Blixen s stories her biography her letters and now finally after a ten year long odyssey of reading other books her Out Of Africa something touches me deep inside and I feel her happiness sadness excitement boredom and disappointment almost physically I don t know why that is really Maybe it has something to do with the Scandinavian heritage taken on a joyride into the big big world Maybe it has to do with her accepting that she was different a stranger within her own environment but still deeply engaged in it That she was willing to sacrifice a lot to live according to her own rules and never stopped fighting for what she considered worthwhile however hopeless the fight seemed against conventions and world history in generalShe knew about her own flaws and prejudices and weighed them against others creating lucid comparisons between different people at a time when Europeans tended to see natives in Africa as mere tools or backdrop Her language and behaviour are aristocratic in a way that reminds me of Virginia Woolf It is a charming vanity as she does not hide it at allWhat about the book itself what did it add to my idea of Karen Blixen It gave me the shivers and a strong feeling of respect for her honest account of life in a country that works with completely different codes of conduct myths and traditions When she describes how she starts writing during a drought filling loose papers with stories her servant comes in and doubts the success of her ambition comparing her drafts to the heavily bound volume of the Odyssey she has in her possession The European mind now smiles inwardly and thinks that it of course is hard to compete with Homer but that is not the angle of the reflection of Blixen s servant He is worried that her book consists of loose paper whereas the Odyssey is bound sturdy impressive heavy The conclusion is that Blixen s work would be eually impressive if she managed to get it printed in hardcover an expensive endeavour but feasibleHer literary soul is disclosed in every day to day reflection she makes An old Danish adventurer who comes to live and die on the farm is compared to The Ancient Mariner or The Old Man and The Sea A lion hunt turns into a Greek tragedy with all actors dead in the last act A discussion of The Merchant Of Venice with her Somali servant Farah gives the Shakespearean story a new twist All the time the capability to read reality from different angles shines through Karen Blixen understands not only the strangeness of the Kikuyu Masai and Somali but also of the French and Scottish missionaries the English District Commissioner and the Scandinavian big game hunters Hers is a universe apart on a farm in the Ngong Hills In her beautiful descriptions of a lifestyle lost forever a European coffee plantation reality in Kenya during the Great War and Depression era Karen Blixen captures the idea of global citizenship by taking traditions for what they are inherited culture Her own culture forbids her to talk too freely of her most passionate love during those years her relationship to Denys Finch Hatton is never explained fully never analysed with the sharp intelligence she is capable of in all other respects But it can be sensed in her compulsive need to start sentences with Denys and I followed by a simple anecdote Denys and I repeated over and over establishes a connection that must have made her feel joy long after she lost her one true wild love and her farm as well As I read her letters first it made me start when I saw the casual line in the novel describing in shortest possible manner a long correspondence and pressure on Karen to give up her life My people at home who had shares in the farm wrote out to me and told me that I would have to sell And she did eventually She moved back to Denmark and spent her last years in frail health in that beautiful environment where I eventually made her acuaintance figuratively speaking of course writing and dreaming of Africa They people who dream know that the real glory of dreams lies in their atmosphere of unlimited freedom It is not the freedom of the dictator who enforces his own will on the world but the freedom of the artist who has no will who is free of will To me it seems that Karen Blixen was a lucky woman to be able to live according to her dreams for a long time to enjoy great love and to be able to sit down and write an opening line of

Out of Africa Download ✓ 102 Asaulinio karo metais ji parašė romaną „Angeliškos keršytojos“ 1944 m o vėliau daugiausia rašė apysakas kurių garsiausia – 1987 m režisieriaus Gabrielio Axelio ekranizuota „Babetės puota“Pasaulinę šlovę KBlixen pelnė autobiografinė knyga „Iš Afrikos“ 1937 m kurioje ji mintimis sugrįžo į mylimą Keniją Pagal šį kūrinį režisierius Sydney Pollackas pastatė net septynias „Oskaro“ statulėles laimėjusį film. I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills This very first line of Dinesen s memoir is like down Alice s rabbit hole Platform Nine and three uarters King s Cross or that cyclone that took Dorothy to Oz Except this time the world is a real one Though not imaginary it isn t lacking in adventures because of that and is unlike anything that modern city dwelling readers can know It is a sad hardship and slavery to people who live in towns that in their movements they know of one dimension only they walk along the line as if they were led on a string The transition from the line to the plane into the two dimensions when you wander across a field or through a wood is a splendid liberation to the slaves like the French Revolution But in the air you are taken into the full freedom of the three dimensions after long ages of exile and dreams the homesick heart throws itself into the arms of space What sets this book apart from other books on Africa by European travellers who always seemed to be filled with horrors is that she probably loves it than her homeland and is at one with it Here I am where I ought to be When you have caught the rhythm of Africa you find out that it is the same in all her music And Dinesen is filled with love for everything she found in this world And she has a beautiful prose with which to describe this love As they had become used to the idea of poetry they begged Speak again Speak like rain Why they should feel verse to be like rain I do not know People who dream when they sleep at night know of a special kind of happiness which the world of the day holds not a placid ecstasy and ease of heart that are like honey on the tongue And since she is an avid reader she is able to further beautify her prose with uotes from other books Kepler writes of what he felt when after many years work he at last found the laws of the movements of the planets I give myself over to my rapture The die is cast Nothing I have ever felt before is like this I tremble my blood leaps God has waited six thousand years for a looker on to his work His wisdom is infinite that of which we are ignorant is contained in him as well as the little that we knowSo sad did it seem that I remembered the saying of the hero in a book that I had read as a child I have conuered them all but I am standing amongst graves The two criticisms it has drawn is that it is racist and talks about hunting As regards hunting a lot of it is rendered neccesary by conditions though she does sometimes do for fun of it also she manages to show a compassion for animals Moreover I never really understand why it should be a taboo People never really care about the number of lives they take in doing pest controls at homesAs regards racism I don t think she is racist Racism like every other prejudice guards the ignorance which is at its roots and is unapreiciative and uncomprenhending of beauty in the prejudiced Dinesen is the very opposite of that she shows a great love and respect for African people and their culture as well a great willingness to understand them The Masai when they were moved from their old country North of the railway line to the present Masai Reserve took with them the names of their hills plains and rivers and gave them to the hills plains and rivers in the new countryperhaps the white men of the past indeed of any past would have been in better understanding and sympathy with the coloured races than we of our Industrial Age shall ever be When the first steam engine was constructed the roads of the races of the world parted and we have never found one another since Up at Meru I saw a young Native girl with a bracelet on a leather strap two inches wide and embroidered all over with very small turuoise coloured beads which varied a little in colour and played in green light blue and ultramarine It was an extraordinarily live thing it seemed to draw breath on her arm so that I wanted it for myself and made Farah buy it from her No sooner had it come upon my own arm than it gave up the ghost It was nothing now a small cheap purchased article of finery It had been the play of colours the duet between the turuoise and the n gre that uick sweet brownish black like peat and black pottery of the Native s skin that had created the life of the bracelet
