review ô eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Blaise Cendrars review Moravagine Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB A hospital for the criminally insane by his starstruck psychiatrist the narrator of the book who foresees a companionship in crime that will also be an unprecedented scientific collaboration Moravagine travels from Moscow to San Antonio to deepest ia engaged in schemes and scams as among other things terrorist speculato. What to say about this I know it is highly rated as a modernist classic and make no mistake it is very inventive with some fantastical scenes and stories Many reviews I have seen rave about it and compare it to Burroughs Naked Lunch Even Henry Miller loved it I can understand all that and I know it careers through the early twentieth century taking apart many sacred cows and exposing much hypocrisy However I did not like it The title sets the tone Moravagine means Death to or by vagina and the books tone is mercilessly misogynistic It is about a young psychiatrist when discovers a prisoner in an institution Moravagine who has various deformities who is there because he murdered his fiancee He decides it would be a good idea to let him free so they could have adventures together because the fellow is interesting and a son of the King of Hungary They then travel together for the rest of the book moving through Europe Russia where they attempt to organise a revolution in 1905 as part of what appears to be an anarchist grouping the US South America and back to Europe The novel concludes in the First World War Periodically during their travels Moravagine rapes and murders women no vivid descriptions it is all very matter of fact and part of his condition and the female characters are treated abominably The author appears to have no opinion on this aspect of his character Maybe he is making a point maybe there is a deeper meaning which I am missing Actually it is just unpleasant and pointless It is as though the victims mostly unamed and undescribed have no importance or significance they do not matter Moravagine is portrayed as the next stage in human evolution and is above normal considerations I ve heard that sort of superiority argument before Master RaceI know it is only a novel and I am not as a rule sueamish about what I read but there is such a deep level of unpleasantness here especially towards women that for me there was just no point ot it Rant over

review ô eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Blaise Cendrars review Moravagine Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB R gold prospector and pilot He also enjoys a busy sideline in rape and murder At last the two friends return to Europe just in time for World War I when the whole world was doing a MoravagineThis new edition of Cendrars's underground classic is the first in English to include the author's afterword How I Wrote Moravagine. Courageous absurdity Audacious luster Uneuivocal bloodlust Dragging existentialism across the muddied battlefields at the heart of man s inextinguishable conflagration this book bestows the chattering of the primal inescapably intertwined with the human spirit Nihilism rants from the gutters of humanity speaking that inexcusable uncomfortable unapologetic truth The mirror reflects a monstrosity but what else was there to view but man devouring its own flesh shitting out ideals only to fertilize the destruction that lay ravaged heaping with steaming germination Yes they rebuilt the milieu but with raw inconsolable exteriors Blood barely drying This book unveils the animosity that harkens from our core as if the duality dominated our path of discovery Cendrars is almost a victim Moravagine is almost a hero The reader is most assuredly an accomplice The story begs the uestion what is at the very base of man The traveling of the two characters makes for great conflict The adventures introduce many eccentric characters His descriptive style generates energy He invites you into the madness as an accomplice or as a hostage you are not sure whether to have fun or fear for your life This book seems like it is meant for heathens perhaps this is why I enjoy it so much Certain halves of man irreconcilable Cendrars writes as if he is if to suffocate the reader in madness the reader becomes a sadomasochist in the process torturing the reader with its suppression of oxygen almost on the point of death until he releases your submerged head finally allows you to breathe oh the air is so sweet when escaping from such a dreary womb The tale has extreme contours wild unforeseen twists of tone plot The variety is uite pleasing puts on full display the author s flexibility diverse tastes There is mention of the Idiot but what of the devil the butcher the mystic the subversive the baron the lecher the committed The endless sides to the psyche of Moravagine make him an extraordinary character The contrast between the two main characters only adds to the robust flavor of this recalling This exotic flower singed by the bomb sullied by the whore s lipstick impaled by the sounds of political nonsense It pushes wisdom deep into the nether regions of your mind like a lobotomy incision Compels you to leave your comfort to venture into the very pulse of a supreme virility A potency exists exclaims wails with fright sheer bliss The psychotic cackle of someone truly free from societies boundaries from law from conscience from judgment by god beast or man truly resonates A freedom that extinguishes itself with a fury It brings to mind what society found vulgar then what is found vulgar now what is deemed obscene It s an aborted fetus sprinkled with glitter Indeed whimsical carnage bedazzled with the jewels of elegant words A diamond covered in shit The book is littered with amazing uotes insight I especially appreciated reading about his hardships in writing finalizing the book It makes me feel less guilty about my hardships in the same manner The combination of all of this made it a very enjoyable read for me Cheers to the mad
