this is A good story, with a box in a box: it always seems to be something a bit more up and further up. That is, in the Sebastian Barry novel, ”Days without end”, the utanpåverket for a minute, prosalyrisk and the romantic theatre of the american civil war. The breathtaking scenery and the knallande muskets, and everything is in place. The nightmare utrotningskriget to the indigenous peoples, the horrors of the war, and the emigrants ' struggle against starvation and weather, all in all, a bit monotonous deluge, depicted by the berättarjagets the eyes of the irish, Thomas McNulty and his and John Cole.
As the boys appear they are the two that revyartister, dressed up as women. Then it turns to the soldiers. By the time they are living on the run from all of the obscene horrors they have experienced, and guilt over anything they have done. Think about ”Brokeback mountain” (short story by Annie E Proulx a film by Ang Lee ) cross-over, you can use
Philipp Meyer Texasepos ”Son”. They are two of the main characters slips through the course of history, the chaos, as well as between the roles of the lover and the butcher's shop.
Brutalitetens neighbour is the crossing of the border
Sebastian Barry was born in 1955, is one of the most well-known and awarded writer, and this is the most high-profile works of art. He leaves the genre's usual lofty tone to one side, and the dress, in, rather than the drama of the simple man's words. The translator, Erik Andersson has been uploaded, it's perfect.
It would be tempting to use a ”Days without end” as a comment to today's united states, that threshold has not been reached anywhere. Still choking the country, the blacks and the poor. To this day fantasize about a new civil war. However, it is not the good one. There is a different one. The inside of the mass, siouxtjuten, and all of the other västernrekvisita. In the midst of it, there is a world that is so early in its making and that the brutalitetens neighbour is the crossing of the border. So not only is it possible, to wear make-up, wig and dress, but also to live well in it, courted by the legions of gold miners: ”We were the first girls in the Daggsville, and we were not the worst”.
Sven Olov Karlsson has been a writer and a critic of Expressen's Culture. His most recent book was ”the book”.
