Lanark hakkında genel kanımı kısaca söylememi isteseniz; çok iyi olmanın kenarından dönmüş bir roman olduğunu söylerdim. Without it the loveliest things change slowly into farce, as you will discover if you insist on having much more life. Kitapla ilgili farklı farklı başlıklarda, hepimizin farklı yorumlamış olduğunu hayretle fark edeceğimiz çok şey konuşmak mümkün.

I found it helpful to reacquaint myself with a character like this, especially after reading and brooding over too much dark, cynical literature. In Rodge Glass’s biography of Alasdair Gray, Irvine Welsh remarked that Lanark is: “probably the closest thing Scotland’s ever produced to Ulysses.

And though Gray’s startling debut threatens to dwarf almost everything, including his own subsequent work, really there is nothing he wrote that isn’t worth reading, right through to the elegiac (but still saucy) Old Men in Love. Bu durumda, kitabın geleneksel ve yenilikçi türleri çok başarılı şekilde içinde barındırmasına ve okuyuca alışıldık olmadığı süreçlerin içine dahil eden bir okuma deneyimi sunuyor. What do you say to people, oh it's a great book, in fact it's a terrible book, don't go past page 150 whatever you do, uh, dude, I can't describe it you'll just have to read it yourself? It is enclosed by [Lanark's] narrative which shows civilization collapsing for the same reason" [4] : 484 and (spoken to Lanark) "You are Thaw with the neurotic imagination trimmed off and built into the furniture of the world you occupy". His writing style is postmodern and has been compared with those of Franz Kafka, George Orwell, Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino.

We have been exiled from elsewhere and are condemned to wander aimlessly in this universe of hopelessness, pain, disease, death, and. We could be better, and we will continue to be bad so long as we cannot honestly reckon with our own badness. Despite the flaws listed above, Gray's writing is for the most part endlessly inventive, and his descriptions are among the best I've read, although they can get self-indulgent. It’s a novel that knows its forebearers and honors them accordingly, while expanding in unique ways and incorporating its author’s socialist leanings. You really need to take your time with this novel, and allow yourself to be sucked into Gray's two worlds (very similar and very different in equal amounts).

Kitabın atmosferi bazı okurlar tarafından çok kara ve simsiyah bulunması ve bu karamsarlık tonlarının okuru sıkabileceği eleştirisi yapılsa da açıkcası bu fikre hiç sahip olmadan kitabı okuduğumu belirtmeliyim. And also the monthly discharge of these from the Moon, its waning, through the vault of heaven as they are merged with the infinite light beyond. Lanark, güneş ışıklarının olmadığı bir yerde( ya da güneş ışığının çok az göründüğü bir zamanda), ejderha derisi hastalığına yakalanmış ve sonrasında insanların kendilerine yemek-tedavi imkanı sunan enstitü denen yerde başlayan ve biten öyküsünü anlatırken, Thaw 1950'lerde Glasgow'da II. In his own words, 'Alasdair Gray is a fat, spectacled, balding, increasingly old Glaswegian pedestrian who has mainly lived by writing and designing books, most of them fiction.

We know, for example, how everyone can be sorted into the “softs” and “dragonhides” of Lanark – mirror afflictions of the inhabitants of Unthank, who are either so open they become mulch or so hardened that they burn up in armoured shells. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. kapitalizm ve entellektüeller üzerine getirmiş olduğu eleştiriler, kitabın tartışılması ve sunduğu çok katmanlılık açısından da kitabı son derece değerli kıldı. The chapter Index itself even plays a narrative role, as do the section titles present on the top of each page. A work of extraordinary imagination and wide range, its playful narrative techniques convey a profound message, both personal and political, about humankind's inability to love, and yet our compulsion to go on trying.In those days I'd identified the character(s) Lanark/Thaw to the person I was in love with (especially the artist parts). Gray displayed his politics with disarming plainness – he believed in Scottish independence and socialism; I was a milksop unionist and social democrat.
