    One thought on “Contra toda esperanza”

    1. We live, not sensing our own country beneath us,Ten steps away they dissolve, our speeches,But where enough meet for half conversation,The Kremlin hillbilly is our preoccupation.They re like slimy worms, his fat fingers,His words, as solid as weights of measure.In his cockroach moustaches there s a hintOf laughter, while below his top boots gleam.Round him a mob of thin necked henchmen,He pursues the enslavement of the half men.One whimpers, another warbles,A third miaows, but he alone prods and [...]

    2. Only a process that is very beautiful and very terrible could produce this book the anguish of two human souls being tormented by a cruel, fiendishly clever, and virtually all powerful State determined to murder both the body and soul of its victims Whether we deserve to benefit as readers from the terrible tempering endured by the poet Osip Mandelstam and his widow Nadezhda Mandelstam is a matter that can be easily determined we do not deserve it We are not worthy of the Mandelstams They belong [...]

    3. Utterly heartbreaking An essential witness Anticipating his arrest M obtained a copy of the Divine Comedy in small format and always had it with him in his pocket, just in case he was arrested not at home but in the street And after his death or even before it, perhaps he lived on in camp legend as a demented old man of seventy who had once written poetry in the outside world and was therefore nicknamed The Poet And another old man or was it the same one lived in the transit camp of Vtoraya Rech [...]

    4. Unlike many wives of famous husbands who tend to emphasize that their husbands would ve been nothing without their love and support or their vanity let s call a spade a spade , Nadezhda Mandelstam wrote an absolutely heartbreaking and devastating chronicle of her husband s life which she happened to share as a fellow traveller and devoted supporter, not as a glamorous muse Her immense talent of a storyteller makes her memoirs a lot than just memories of Mandelstam and their life Nadezhda Mandel [...]

    5. A remarkable book so far Mandelstam landed in hot water for this poem on Stalin which is sometimes called the Kremlin Mountaineer We live, deaf to the land beneath us,Ten steps away no one hears our speeches,All we hear is the Kremlin mountaineer, The murderer and peasant slayer His fingers are fat as grubs And the words, final as lead weights, fall from his lips, His cockroach whiskers leer And his boot tops gleam Around him a rabble of thin necked leaders fawning half men for him to play with [...]

    6. Mandelstam s memoir of her and her husband s life in Soviet Russia between 1934 and 1938, between which times he is twice taken into the Gulag, the second time fatally, is among the best and most powerful of nonfiction books It is not only a unique and exceptionally frank personal testament but a work of art.Nadezhda means hope in Russian, which makes the title a wryly ironic pun Mandelstam s wit and resilience are the twin beacons that light this memoir of life in a relentlessly dark time The m [...]

    7. If you are anything like me, you ll start to feel pretty bad about eating while reading Hope Against Hope even drinking tea starts to feel like you re mocking Mandelstam and her friends Look at me, sitting here in my capitalist comfort, my hybrid bourgeois intelligentsia existence, with the air conditioning on and very little chance of being arrested How can I stand myself So, yeah, it took me a while to get through this Partly because it s loosely structured, so sometimes it s hard to follow th [...]

    8. First and foremost, M s book is entirely engaging and engrossing memoir Several of its features are most striking and prominent in my mind as I write these comments.Nadia is fully present on every page The sort of person she was is fully evident in every paragraph for the most part a strong minded, unshakably independent, clear sighted, uncompromisingly honest observer of her time and place, who could not be moved or broken under years of relentless and unremitting repression at the hands of a l [...]

    10. The introduction by Joseph Brodsky claims N Mandelstam is not a writer but that you should read this anyway for the content and context Bullshit As someone somewhere else has said, this is probably the finest work of dissident writing about the USSR done, Solzhenitsyn included Sure, it wanders in time and sometimes gets into details about Russian schools of writing that I was less interested in, but that s a thing with Russians and Russian literature esp the part about the structure There are ti [...]

    11. This book should be the opposite of uplifting It should leave one devastated and hopeless, yet mysteriously it has the opposite effect I would encouraged anyone going through difficult times to read it I would pretty much encourage anyone to read it See if I throw the term life changing experience around lightly.Oh, you will also learn tun about poetry and history.Your image, tormenting and elusive,I could not touch in the mist God I said by mistake,never thinking to say that myself.God s name l [...]

    12. By examining the rise of totalitarianism in Russia, this book answers the question of how a whole society can be controlled and manipulated into blindly accepting the power of their leaders, no matter how corrupt they may be This book is incredible a highly recommended, life changing read.

    13. This is in many ways an extraordinary book and fully deserving of its prominent place in the canon of 20th century literature on Stalinism, and totalitarianism generally While there are parts, particularly about Osip Mandelstam s literary tastes, which are rather impenetrable for those without a strong grounding in Russian literature, I have not come across as evocative an account of how pervasive and all consuming the climate of fear was amongst all Soviet citizens in the 1930s.

    14. Un libro que reflexiona y se cuestiona sobre el significado de lo humano con una gran lucidez en un momento hist rico en el que en Rusia, la barbarie y el horror se respiraba a cada paso Nadiezhda Mandelstam, viuda del poeta sip Mandelstam, escribe estas memorias recordando su vida junto a su marido, el cual morir en la Gulag Una historia de amor tejida entre m s sombras que luces, pero que vive y respira esperanza por doquier Muy recomendable.

    15. Osip Mandelstam was one of the four great poets of 20th century Russia I came across him because one of the other poets, Akhmatova, is one of my all time favorites, and I was told I really could not set about memorizing her Requiem without knowing about Mandelstam and what happened to him So piece by piece I found my way to this book, the memoir of his wife and widow, Nadezhda, or Nadia whose name means hope Though Nadia did other things, and is important in other ways, this is a memoir of love [...]

    16. Nadezhda Mandelstam was the wife, and later widow, of the poet Osip Mandelstam He is considered one of the four great poets of twentieth century Russia Boris Pasternak, Anna Akhmatova, and Marina Tsvetaeva are the others I think an argument could be made for Andrei Blok Hope Against Hope narrates the Mandelstams perilous voyage through the punitive bureaucracy of Stalinist Russia from Moscow to prison to the south and, then, for the poet, to the prison camp where he died His offense, apparently, [...]

    17. This is a stunning memoir, and probably the book that best captures the sinister surrealism of the Stalinist era in the Soviet Union Nadezhda Mandelstam, wife of the blacklisted poet Osip Mandelstam, describes their lives in the four years between when Osip ran afoul of Stalin and when he was finally sent to a labor camp where he subsequently died Her writing is beautiful and tragic, a paean of love to her lost spouse and a blistering critique of tyranny If I could give this than five stars, I [...]

    19. My daughter s name was inspired, in part, by this woman This book is incredible The author was the wife of a Russian poet killed during Stalin s regime Her writings on living in such a bizarre political environment should be, I believe, required reading for all She captures the crazy mindsets of the leaders, followers and everyone in between.

    21. so intelligent, but simply observed no hysteria, just life, while stalin s jailers inquisitors hound her husband Osip Mandelstam, great Russian, anti Soviet poet to death.

    22. A powerful and insightful window into the first couple of decades of post revolution Soviet Russia Nadezhda Mandelstam, educator and widow of Osip Mandelstam, one of Russia s greatest poets of the twentieth century and one of millions of Stalin s victims, wrote this account in the 1960s It is thanks to her efforts that much of his poetry survived to the present day, but her own literary contribution here towers beside those writings of her husband.It is a memoir of these two specific people, yet [...]
