Such a powerful novel It saddens me that so few people have even heard of this novel and of Kuprin Yama The Pit tells about a brothel in Tsarist Russia, and, yes, it s damn depressing, but at the same time written with such honesty, care and beauty, that I think only a Russian classic can muster Apart from obvious issues of morality and humanity, the novel deals with mental illness and gender inequality, and all that long before these words even appeared in our language There were also hints of same sex relationships and attractions, and I wish they wereexplicit, but I guess the novel was already too risque for its time.
If whoever wants to read it, be prepared that Kuprin as any respectful Russian classic overwrites descriptions of random people that appear for one sc Such a powerful novel It saddens me that so few people have even heard of this novel and of Kuprin Yama The Pit tells about a brothel in Tsarist Russia, and, yes, it s damn depressing, but at the same time written with such honesty, care and beauty, that I think only a Russian classic can muster Apart from obvious issues of morality and humanity, the novel deals with mental illness and gender inequality, and all that long before these words even appeared in our language There were also hints of same sex relationships and attractions, and I wish they wereexplicit, but I guess the novel was already too risque for its time.
If whoever wants to read it, be prepared that Kuprin as any respectful Russian classic overwrites descriptions of random people that appear for one sc I am reading this book in Russian while listening to an excellent audio book I am enjoying the book, and I import it chapter by chapter into LingQ in order to save the words that I need to learn I enjoy the book immensely, but this may in large part be due to the excellent audio book that I have.
My son Eric found a print copy of the book and gave it to me for Christmas I have only had access to an e text version of the book needed for LingQ and had not been able to locate a print version Eric found this old book in a book store in Brookline near Boston MA, where he lives The book is 50 years old 1958 An excellent though very depressing account of life in a brothel in Tsarist Russia I had never heard of this author before, and only discovered this book through a perusal of ebooks available at this site Mobileread ebook library I would rate Alexandre Kuprin right up there with the other greats of Russian literature.
Un romanzo di denuncia sociale che potrebbe essere scritto anche oggi.
Si parla delle cosiddette case di tolleranza, distinte in base al loro tariffario dalle pi prestigiose a quelle pi squallide Quella su cui Kuprin focalizza l attenzione una casa da due rubli, piuttosto malconcia.
Vi si descrive l umanit che la abita e, in particolare, facciamo la conoscenza di tre prostitute Zenja, Ljubka e Tamara La prima il personaggio che mi ha commossa di pi.
Zenja la pi richiesta dai clienti, clienti che lei disprezza all ennesima potenza e, quando si ammala, decide di vendicarsi infettando quanto pi uomini le capitano a tiro Di fronte a un ragazzino per avr piet e si tirer indietro Da qui scoprir di non essere poi quella dura che ha sempre creduto di essere e inizier a pensare che l unica via pe Molto, ma non troppo, cambiato da alloraLa fossa un quartiere della grande citt meridionale di K in questo quartiere che Aleksandr Kuprin, scrittore russo poco noto del primo novecento, ambienta il suo romanzo pi noto, pubblicato nel 1915.
La fossa, per , un quartiere particolare, quello che oggi definiremmo un quartiere a luci rosse l si trovano le case di tolleranza che effettivamente espongono, di sera, delle lanterne rosse , rigidamente suddivise in case di lusso, di second ordine e popolari, con prezzi e qualit del servizio diversi.
Kuprin ci racconta la storia di una di queste case, quella gestita da Anna Markovna una casa di second ordine, da due rubli delle ragazze che vi lavorano e della varia umanit che la frequenta C , ,, ,,, , , , ,, , , , .
Upton Sinclair, eat your heart out One of the most genious aspects about this book is that Kuprin writes about prostitution from a confined perspective There s almost no respite from being hand bound to their circumstances and home And he is also an effective dramatist He makes a funny and light introduction before bringing in heavier material He shaped the book so well that the few parts that are sentimental and dramatic work He knows how to play off characters and counterpoint the action so it s not sappy mono thematic drool The psychology is wonderful too The women are human and interesting They are the ones who keep you interested in the story, the ones you most sympathize with the dregs of society.
Really amazing book Sinclair would have done well to have read this one.
