Obermann

Etienne Pivert de Senancour

Book Overview: 

Although it was almost completely ignored by the reading public when it was first published during the period of Napoleonic Wars in 1804, it was rediscovered almost 30 years later by the Romantics, praised by none less than Balzac and George Sand, as well as Franz Liszt and other illustrious persons of that time period.

Obermann is an epistolary novel in the form of a journal intime, in which the inner life of the main character is the most important element, rather than the physical action. The story spans ten years, in which Obermann describes historical events, the progress of philosophical ideas, and, most strikingly, his emotional development.

Solo he tardado un mes

Telemak Kitap'a saygılar, çok güzel bir edisyon hazırlamışlar Obermann için.

Bazen kendi hâlimi paylaşan metinleri tesadüfen bulduğumu düşünüyorum, bir anda çeviriyorum sayfaları ve yaklaşık 200 yıl önce başka bir coğrafyada, başka bir tarihsel yapının çemberinde yazıya geçirilmiş duygularla ıskalanm

I don't know a single person that this book would interest. Ignore the bloated moralizing that fills up many pages and "Obermann" is something exceptional.

Étienne Pivert De Senancour, inacreditável como este grande escritor foi relegado ao esquecimento, mesmo contando com ilustres admiradores: Proust, Balzac, Baudelaire, Nabokov, George Sand, Nerval, até mesmo Liszt compôs em homenagens à sua obra mais famosa: Obermann.
Obermann se trata de um romance

Follow Nabokov's recommendation. Beautifully written, probing, deeply original.
