A slipstream narrative that puts us inside the mind of a man obsessed with a remote, crystalline woman who may be a mere figment of his imagination and erotic frustrations. Then things get stranger as her presence continually indicates the eventual encroachment of more ice, more ecological destruction and countries laid to ruin. Kayvan’s prose is as cold, slick, and intense as the ice she writes about, or as Doris Lessing put it, in a mold of literary economy, “there is nothing else like it.”

Tumblred by cryptomnesia on May 4, 2018, 3:35 p.m.

Apparently there is nothing to prevent me from walking out whenever I feel inclined. Yet though there is no visible barrier I know only too well that I am surrounded by unseen and impassable walls which tower into the highest domes of the zenith and sink many miles below the surface of the earth.

So it has come upon me, the doom too long awaited, the end without end, the bannerless triumph of the enemy who, after all, appears to be close as a brother. Already it seems to me that I have spent a lifetime in this narrow room whose walls will continue to regard me with secrecy through innumerable lifetimes to come. Is it life, then, or death, stretching like an uncoloured stream behind and in front of me? There is no love here, nor hate, nor any point where feeling accumulates. In this nameless place nothing appears animate, nothing is close, nothing is real; I am pursued by the remembered scent of dust sprinkled with summer rain.

Outside my window there is a garden where nobody ever walks: a garden without seasons, for the trees are all evergreens. At certain times of the day I can hear the clatter of footsteps on the concrete covered ways which intersect the lawns, but the garden is always deserted, set for the casual appreciation of strangers, or else for the remote and solitary contemplation of eyes defeated like mine. In this impersonal garden, all neatness and vacancy, there is no arbour where friends could linger, but only concrete paths along which people walk hurriedly, inattentive to the singing of birds.

“What crime I’d committed, I didn’t know; nor did this matter, since I knew I was guilty, and guilt itself was my crime. The shades of the prison house already enclosed me. There was no hope. I was being dragged deeper into some weird cavernous darkness, lit only by glow-worm glimmers of greenish light. Never again, I thought despairingly, should I see the sun.”                  

“My heart gave a great bound, and something went through me like lightning, like steel, that might have been either despair or triumph. It was all over. I had known all along. Now I’d achieved my object, the thing I most dreaded and most desired. I was alone again, unloving, unloved, as I had always been and would always be, world without end. At this moment of spontaneous revelation, the truth emerged, unmistakably, everywhere and in everything: shouted by the vast indifferent glacial silence of night and stars, petrified in the forever-suspended drop, proclaimed by the disposition of flowers, no longer scattered at random. For a timeless instant there was nothing but this hugely significant truth.”

“The very foundations of reality had begun to dissolve. I didn’t know where I was, either in space or in my existence. Lost in the deepest possible sense, I’d lost even the reality of my life in the world. My real self was dissolving, falling away from me. To my horror I felt myself some small, despised, abject thing - some kind of vermin - without teeth or claws or any means of protection, the most defenseless creature alive, hated and hunted by all the rest. My destruction was their duty, an easy task, accomplished by one weak blow.”

ANNA KAVAN / NEIGE / CAMBOURAKIS / 2013.

Un homme poursuit obstinément une femme qu’il a aimée par le passé, dans un monde dévasté par les guerres et sur lequel plane la menace d’une nouvelle ère glaciaire. Il court vers elle, à moins que ce ne soit vers le mur de glace qui se profile à l’horizon du roman comme de l’humanité. Un étrange roman traversé d’éclairs fantasmatiques, métaphore inquiète des années Guerre froide et subtile analyse d’un sentiment amoureux partagé entre passion et persécution.

« Soudain, à travers les tourbillons de neige, j’aperçus la fille qui s'enfuyait en direction de la glace. J'essayai de crier : « Arrêtez ! Revenez ! » mais l'air polaire me rongea la gorge et ma voix fut emportée par le vent. Je courus après elle, enveloppé d’une brume de neige poudreuse. Je pouvais à peine la voir, c’était à peine si mes yeux pouvaient distinguer quelque chose : je dus m’arrêter et essuyer péniblement les cristaux de glace qui se formaient sur mes yeux avant de pouvoir continuer. Le vent meurtrier ne cessait de me repousser, la neige s'entassait en monticules blancs qui fumaient comme des volcans, m'aveuglant de nouveau de leur fumée blanche. J'avançai en titubant dans le froid atroce, chancelai et trébuchai, glissai, tombai, me relevai péniblement, l'atteignis enfin tant bien que mal, l'agrippai de mes mains engourdies. C'était trop tard, je vis tout de suite que nous n'avions pas la moindre chance. Une splendeur arctique, comme un mirage, nous dominait de toutes parts, un édifice de glace étrange, extraterrestre. D'immenses remparts de glace, des tourelles irisées, des pinacles envahissaient le ciel, illuminés de l'intérieur par des feux minéraux. Nous étions pris au piège de ces murs convergents, de ce cercle de bourreaux spectraux qui avançaient lentement, inexorablement, pour nous détruire. Je ne pouvais ni bouger ni penser. L'haleine du bourreau paralysait, engourdissait le cerveau. Je sentis le froid mortel de la glace me toucher, j'entendis son grondement, je la vis, traversée de fissures éclatantes couleur d'émeraude. Loin au-dessus de nous, les pics étincelants tonnaient et tremblaient, sur le point de s'écrouler. Du givre étincelait sur ses épaules, son visage était d'une blancheur de neige, ses longs cils effleuraient ses joues. Je l'attirai à moi et la tins serrée contre ma poitrine pour qu'elle ne pût voir les masses montagneuses de glace qui tombaient. »

There needs to be a term for an alternative way of building worlds, the world-building-in-negative that is practiced by Kavan and Abe (and forebears and contemporaries like Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, Samuel Beckett, John Hawkes, and J. G. Ballard). Some have called this process “inferred world-building” or “world-conjuring,” but “world-blocking” may be more apt. The term works in opposing directions to get at the paradox of these types of texts. A “block” is something that obstructs, but is also a unit, like a brick, for building (i.e., “building block”). The verb “to block” means to hinder or hamper, but it also means to plot out the movements of an actor on a stage or movie set. World-blockers, then, build worlds through obstruction; they block out the moves of their world by blocking our full access to them.

Kölden väckte mig i gryningen. Hela natten lång hade kalla stjärnor bombarderat jorden med isstrålar, som trängde genom dess hölje och lagrade sig inunder, de lämnade bara en tunn skorp över en reservoar av iskyla. Att se marken vit av rimfrost och känna den hårdfrusen under sulorna i denna subtropiska region gav en känsla av att man stigit ut ur vardagen och in på ett sällsamt område, där inga kända lagar härskade.

I have a review up on Shiny New Books today, and it’s of a stunning and memorable book – Anna Kavan’s “Ice”. I picked up my original, rather fragile Picador edition (shown on the left) decades ago and haven’t revisited the book since. However, it’s now been reissued in a eye-catching Penguin Modern Classic (centre) and a beautiful Peter Owen Cased Classic (right), as well as a Penguin black cover…

I was confused about time. It had been night overhead all along, but below it was still daylight. There were no clouds. I saw islands scattered over the sea, a normal aerial view. Then something extraordinary, out of this world: a wall of rainbow ice jutting up from the sea, cutting right across, pushing a ridge of water ahead of it as it moved, as if the flat pale surface of sea was a carpet being rolled up. It was a sinister, fascinating sight, which did not seem intended for human eyes. I stared down at it, seeing other things at the same time. The ice world spreading over our world. Mountainous walls of ice surrounding the girl. Her moonwhite skin, her hair sparkling with diamond prisms under the moon. 

The moon’s dead eye watching the death of our world.

By degrees the snow became visible as it fell, a sort of faint shimmer like phosphorescence. The hollow roar of the wind came in irregular bursts, the snowflakes whirled madly in all directions, filled the night with their spectral chaos. I seemed to feel the same feverish disorder in myself, in all my pointless rushing from place to place. The crazily dancing snowflakes represented the whole of life. Her image flew past, the silver hair streaming and was instantly swept away in the wild confusion. 

In the delirium of the dance, it was impossible to distinguish between the violent and the victims. Anyway, distinctions no longer mattered in a dance of death, where all the dancers spun on the edge of nothing.

A wintry new addition to its canon by Penguin Classics, Ice is the story of a unnamed narrator searching for the elusive “glass girl” with silver hair across a frozen, apocalyptic landscape. Written by proto-feminist author Anna Kavan (a pseudonym for Helen Ferguson nee Woods), Ice was the last of her novels to be published in her lifetime, and was praised by none other than Brian Aldiss as the best science fiction novel of 1967, and Doris Lessing said of the novel, “There is nothing else like it.”

Life is tension or the result of tension: without tension the creative impulse cannot exist. If human life be taken as the result of tension between the two polarities night and day, night, the negative pole, must share equal importance with the positive day. At night, under the influence of cosmic radiations quite different from those of the day, human affairs are apt to come to a crisis. At night most human beings die and are born.

By what judgment am I judged? What is the accusation against me? Am I to be accused of my own betrayal? Am I to blame because you are my enemies? Yours is the responsibility, the knowledge, the power. I trusted you, you played with me as a cat plays with a mouse, and now you accuse me. I had no weapon against you, not realizing that there was need for weapons until too late.

This is your place; you are at home here. I came as a stranger, alone, without a gun in my hand, bringing only a present that I wanted to give you. Am I to blame because the gift was unwelcome?

Am I accused of the untranslated indictment against myself? Is it my fault that a charge has been laid secretly against me in a different language? Is my offence that I stood too long on your threshold, holding a present that was unsuitable? Am I accused because you, wanting a victim and not a friend, threw away the only thing which I had to give?

The dream foreground which reappears is obscured by mantles of nostalgic melancholy. A soft antique rain falls. Twilight. The colours lavender to pigeon and pearl grey with the delicate green of a weeping willow tree on the left. Behind the willow hangs the suggestion of a cascade. In the middle distance, centrally placed, a small hill with a tomb — a simple shrine, it looks like — at the top.

The remote voices of antiquity whisper quietly together: the willow; the rain; the cascade. Presently a shadow moves on the lower slopes of the hill; at first a blur, gradually becoming distinguishable as the back view of a fox, belly close to the ground, long brush extended, cautiously stealing upwards. It moves along so secretly that it appears to creep like a snake. When it has almost reached the top, the fox stops, turns its head, and looks slowly from side to side. With its head turned, it crouches there for a while in furtive forlornness, then suddenly disappears. In its place stands a young girl with long and very lovely hair who clasps her grave-clothes with one hand, runs to the tomb and vanishes inside.

Out of my urgent need I found the way of working a new night magic. Out of the night-time magic I built in my head a small room as a sanctuary from the day. Phantoms might be my guests there, but no human could enter. Human beings were dangerous to me, like tigers prowling at large in the daytime world. Inside my secluded room I felt safe from the tigers I sometimes envied. Sometimes a savage beauty lured me into the sun and I would start to love the danger a little. On these occasions I felt the reluctant love drained painfully from me as blood drains from a deep wound. The tigers lapped my love’s blood and remained enemies. The inhabitants of the day laughed at the gift I wanted to bring them, and I shut myself in my inner room to escape the betrayal of their arrogant mouths.

What happens when you start on the downward trip? The elevator doors clang shut, a suffocating infernal wind roars up the shaft, it seems as though you’ll never get to the bottom; there’s plenty of time to wonder what’s coming and to wish yourself somewhere else. Of course there isn’t a hope of ever getting out again into the light. Once you’re on your way down the machinery takes charge of you, you’re caught, trapped, finished for good and all. Certainly there are legends about individuals who have escaped, even after reaching the final platforms. But these are heroes, fabulous figures who perhaps never really existed except as projections of wishful thinking in the minds of ordinary people. At any rate, they are far too dubious and remote to be of any real moral support or to provide any justifiable basis for optimism. You might just as well give in and pluck the cruel thorn of hope out of your heart. It’s always less painful to surrender to the stream of events than to turn yourself into a dam to be battered and pounded. It’s true that if the worst comes to the worst you’ll be drowned: but that’s better than being beaten to a jelly; and there’s always a slight chance that you may get washed ashore somewhere before the end.

The wilder the tricks of the tigers, the more abandoned their games and gambols, the more diversely dreadful become the dooms of the unfortunate A in this dream. Her fugitive shape, black-swathed, vanishes at the end of every cul-de-sac. Through the cities of the world she pursues her fate, in streets where the dead eyes of strangers are no colder than the up-swarming lights which have usurped the brilliance of the stars. From shrouded platforms among the clouds she hurtles down. She plunges from towers strict and terrible in their stark fragile strength, delicate as jerboa’s bones on the sky, perdurable with granite and steel. Slumped on his stained bar, Pete the Greek, beneath flyblown Christmas festoons which no one will ever remove, hears the screaming skid of wheels spouting slush with her blood. Limp as an old coat not worth a hanger, she is to be found behind numbered doors in hotel bedrooms; or dangling from the trees of country churchyards where leaning tombstones like feeble-minded ghosts mop and mow in the long summer grass. The weeds of lonely rivers bind her with clammy skeins; the tides of tropical oceans suck off her shoes; crabs scuttle over her eye sockets. Sheeted and anonymous on rubbered wheels she traverses the interminable bleakness of chloroform-loaded corridors. The sardonic yap of the revolver can be taken as the full stop arbitrarily concluding each ambiguous sentence.

An erratic but steadfast seeking, saraband and stalking of death by violence through the indifferent world.

I must find myself, I cannot drown in so black a sea, and I begin to strike out, threshing about desperately, this way and that, in pursuit of the images which appear, transparent as the shadows of icicles, incorporated in the night-plasma. Floundering among the waves, my head just above water, the most shapeless water, I plunge into a picture: but at once the outlines disintegrate, coldly… coldly… no frost flower decorating a window-pane vanishes more inexorably in the sun. Into the ephemeral images I dive, one after the other: sometimes one crystallizes into a brief sharpness — never to permanence. At last I dive with extraordinary accuracy into my own body, which I see laid out, high and dry, above the receding tide. I am lying there like a long white fish on a slab. Is it a bed or a bier that I’m lying on? Or have I really been washed up on some beach or other?

But the relations between the two of them were peculiar. On Anna’s side there was always a holding back, almost a trace of resentment. She distrusted that glorification of herself even while it gratified her. She felt that in some way she was being made soft. She was not standing on her own feet. It was the goddess-ship of Rachel that was exalting her for her own ends, almost making her into the victim. She rather resented the goddess aspect of Rachel: and her actual physical aspect, so lavish in its rich maturity, like a gorgeous, soft fruit. Rachel would touch her, would take her arm, or her small, cool hand, or stroke caressively her sleek, well-shaped head. And immediately she would be made uncomfortably conscious of the full, feminine body under the bright clothes, the soft, white-fleshed limbs, the rich female luxuriousness. It was as if some part of her were repelled, disgusted even, by the proximity of so much ripe, luscious femininity. She didn’t want to be touched.

Three landscapes:

Untitled 20 (New Zealand Landscape)
Untitled 18 (erupting volcano)
Untitled 39 (naked torso)

Arguably one of these is not a landscape, but given Kavan’s tendency to write descriptions of the environment that reflect her characters’ states, I’d argue it’s not so far off.

Catherine Lenoble’s Anna K is a docufictional exploration of Anna Kavan’s life and work. A conversation with Catherine, four and a half years ago was one of the inciting moments that motivated the collection of Kavan materials in his tumblr, so I’m long overdue to link back to her! Now let’s hope for an English translation someday (it is currently only available in French).

Until then, Catherine also runs kavan.land, a labyrinthine reflection of our fascination with Kavan, a semantic and fictional archive designed out of a collection of data.

She’s a strange woman. People are perplexed by her stark nordic strangeness and Lorelei hair, and by her eyes which have the remote blue glitter of the Skaggerak. It’s not how they expect the founder and principal of an important college to look. I point out to them, whenever a suitable opening occurs, that a brilliant, unorthodox superwoman, the inventor of a revolutionary system of education, isn’t likely to conform to ordinary standards, in her appearance or anything else.

And through all this one is expected to carry on one’s personal existence as usual; to work and to perform social and family duties as if the background of one’s life were still perfectly normal: that is what is hardest of all to bear. Naturally one gets nervy and irritable and absent-minded; one’s friends gradually start to avoid one; one’s work suffers, and then one’s health begins to break down. One loses sleep, it becomes harder amd harder to take any interest in conversation, books, music, plays, eating and drinking, love-making, even in one’s personal appearance. Ultimately one becomes completely cut off from reality, alone in a world in which there is nothing to do but wait, day after day, for some fate at which one can only guess but which, in any case, can scarcely be less tolerable than the preceding uncertainty.

The high mountains are like archangels, aloof and lovely and awe-inspiring, standing above the earth with their glittering heads in the sky. I adore the high mountains, I could worship them. I dream of becoming identified with them, cold and inaccessible like their snow-covered summits. Something about their remote perfection makes me want to die.

C'était un tourment que d'évoquer le passé. Car c'était comme contempler une vie d'occasions perdues — une vie qui avait été belle et riche de promesses. Elle voyait les promesses de son jeune âge, qui ne se réaliseraient jamais, elle en voyait la ruine. Ce moi noble et précieux qu'elle avait perdu avait eu une existence si brève qu'elle n'avait même pas eu le temps de s'apercevoir de celle-ci.

I’ve gotta be honest, I picked up this book from the library purely based on the description of the writer on the back. Anna Kavan originally went by another name, but after two unhappy marriages and a heroin addition, she had a nervous breakdown and was institutionalised. She emerged as Anna Kavan, the name of a character in one of her books.

Ice is described as a slipstream novel, a term I don’t think I’d really heard used until now, although I’m pretty sure I’ve read some other books that would also be called that. It’s dreamlike and transitory, doesn’t fit into standard genre conventions - maybe its scifi, maybe fantasy, maybe some kind of thriller - or narrative structure. The introduction warns that attempting to read Ice as an ordinary novel will only cause frustration, which was definitely what I found. Kavan leaps between past and present, different potential realities, different places and times, as though they’re all one to her. 

The main character is a man with a mysterious past which we are told nothing - or very little- about. He’s chasing a young woman (he refers to her as a girl all the way through, and repeatedly comments on her childlike body and mind, which was super disturbing) who he once wanted to marry, through a world that is gradually being consumed by ice. There’s definitely elements of dystopia in Ice, it reminded me of Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle in some ways. The girl is often described as someone who expects to be a victim because she had a terrible childhood, and she’s constantly passively seeking to be victimised. I think it would be difficult to pin down any strong analysis of Kavan’s intentions when writing this, but there’s definitely a lot going on beneath the surface. Maybe it only made sense to her, but it’s certainly an intriguing read.

Ice, by Anna Kavan

“Acclaimed by Brian Aldiss on its publication in 1967 as the best science fiction book of the year, this extraordinary and innovative novel has subsequently been recognised as a major work of literature in its own right. In this haunting and surreal novel, the narrator and a man known as ‘the warden’ search for an elusive girl in a frozen, seemingly post-nuclear, apocalyptic landscape. The country has been invaded and is being governed by a secret organisation. There is destruction everywhere; great walls of ice overrun the world. Together with the narrator, the reader is swept into a hallucinatory quest for this strange and fragile creature with albino hair.”

« Souvent, les 30 ans d'addiction à l'héroïne d'ANNA arrivent dans le chapeau de l'article ou le premier paragraphe, comme une sorte d'avertissement : « ceci est l'œuvre d'une droguée » ou « ceci est décousu parce qu'il s'agit d'une héroïnomane ». Cela te fait doucement rire, ces raccourcis drogue et littérature ou ces rarissimes attributions d'étiquettes « junky-génie », raison pour laquelle tous les frères et sœurs maudits voient leur ouvrages relégués chez le bouquiniste du coin ou sur l'étagère d'une bibliothèque au fin-fond de la Slovaquie.

Tu continues à lire ANNA. Lorsqu'on t'invite à écrire ici et là, elle t'accompagne. Une première fois, à l'occasion d'une contribution pour une revue en ligne :

Flot d'images d'oiseaux (des gros, des petits, des difformes, des fluos, des qui crient, des qui volent) qui défilent qui défilent, flux d'images issues du web qui dégueulent qui dégueulent, et de temps à autre, des mots et des extraits d'ouvrages d'Anna Kavan.

Cette participation t'engage pour une résidence collective d'une semaine, réunissant auteurs, plasticiens, chorégraphes, dans une ancienne école. Tu est là, en résidence, en collectif, pourtant, comme une force qui te pousse à t'isoler, te retrancher. Tu trouves refuge dans une toute petite pièce, avec une grande fenêtre, vue sur la cour de l'école. À l'intérieur, un énorme photocopieur, une table et une chaise. C'est à cet endroit, près du photocopieur, que tu lance des premières requêtes.

Héroïne – environ 72 200 000 résultats (0,15 secondes)

Puissant opiacé obtenu par synthèse, à partir de la morphine extraite du pavot, qui se présente sous la forme d'une poudre, ou de granulés à écraser, pouvant se consommer par insufflation (sniff), injection intraveineuse ou inhalation (fumée ou prisée).

Héroïne – environ 72 200 000 résultats (0,15 secondes)

Un héros (au féminin, une héroïne) est un personnage réel ou fictif de l'histoire, de la mythologie humaine ou des arts, dont les hauts faits valent qu'on chante son geste, raconte son histoire. »

She looked, and saw the black, domed sky arching over her head. And her heart dilated; she felt the great black dome in her heart. She sat under the stars, worshipping them. Her heart opened and grew vast, until the whole sky with all its stars began to pour into her, a mysterious flood of star-strung darkness. She wanted to receive the night sky into her heart.

I went to a used bookstore recently and nearly lost my mind - they had a whole collection of Anna Kavan books, rightly placed in the “classics” section. I bought them all. I didn’t even look at the price. And then, in their philosophy section, I found “On Certainty” by Ludwig Wittgenstein. Once I had touched it, I couldn’t put it back. These were all very special books.

Açıkçası ben özellikle, bilerek başlamadım bu kitaba. Fakat Selahattin Özpalabıyıklar'ın üzerine en çok titrediği çevirisi olduğunu öğrendiğim için hemen en önlere aldığım bir okuma oldu. Ona da zaten arkadaşları aynı şekilde üzerine titredikleri bir kitaptır diye önermişlerdi. Bu durumda kendinizi okumaktan alamıyorsunuz zaten. En azından ben alamazdım. Gerçekten muazzam bir çeviri olmuş. Hikâye baştan sona sizi bulunduğunuz yere çakıyor. Zamanının en iyi bilim-kurguları içinde yer almasının sebebi boşuna değil. Ayrıca kitabın ikinci yarısında parmaklarınızın üşüdüğünü hissedebilirsiniz, eldivenlerinizi giymeyi unutmayın.

Kitapla ilgili en güzel şeyi yazmayı unutmayalım; Önsöz. Son yılların bence edebiyat çevrelerinde görülmüş belki de en güzel Önsöz'le karşı karşıya olduğumuzu söylemeliyim. Ben özellikle Önsöz'leri çok severim. Orada hemen önce çevirmenle ya da yazarla ufak bir irtibatınız, hem haliniz olur. Sonra sonra kitaba dalar, artık uzaklaşır, belki de önsöz bir daha aklınıza bile gelmeyecektir. Fakat Sevgili Okur, burada başka türlü bir Önsöz'le karşılaşacaksınız. Bu kadar çok not aldığım pek az önsöz vardır. Ben çok sevdim, siz de sevin…

Bir de Everest'e ufak bir eleştirim var. Bu Modern Klasikler serisi için hazırlanan kitaplarda neden bu kadar ufak fontlar kullanılıyor anlamıyorum. Gerçekten göz katili bir font boyutu var. Lütfen gözlere özgürlük, okuyucuya rahatlık verelim, fontları büyütelim diyorum…

Paradoxically, the old part has only been added recently. When I first came to live here it was an entirely new house—that is to say, it had certainly not been standing for more than ten or fifteen years. Now, at least half of it must have been built centuries ago. It is the old part that has grown up during my occupation that I fear and distrust.

Roused in this brutal fashion, I jump up just in time to catch a glimpse of the vanishing hem of sleep, as like a dark scarf maliciously snatched away, it glides over the foot of the bed and disappears in a flash under the closed door. Useless, quite futile, to dash after it in pursuit: I am awake now for good, or rather, for bad; the wheels, my masters, are already vibrating with incipient motion; the whole mechanism is preparing to begin the monotonous, hateful functioning of which I am the dispirited slave.

I Am Lazarus: Stories by Anna Kavan My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’ve read various novellas by Anna Kavan over the years — Ice, Sleep Has His House, and Who Are You? The first two I read a very long time ago, and can remember little about them, although I know they intrigued me enough to continue exploring her work. The last I read only recently, and while it was enjoyable enough, it wasn’t…

Anna Kavan (1967), Buz, Everest Yayınları, 2014, Çev. Selehattin Özpalabıyıklar, 179 sayfa.


Oldukça iyi bir roman. Sabit Fikir dergisinin eylül 2014 sayısında tanıtımını görüp aldım romanı, ardından da okudum. Aylar sonra da tanıtıyorum. Sevdiğim yazarlardan J. G. Ballard’ın da romandan övgüyle söz etmesi kitabı okumamda etkili oldu. Ballard, doğrudan bana mail atarak söylemedi tabi. Öyle bir şey yapsa mutlu olurum açıkçası.

Kavan, romanı ölümünden 1 yıl önce 1967 yılında yazmış. Tür olarak belirli bir olay örgüsünde ilerleyen bir distopya daha doğrus kıyamet süreci romanı denilebilir. Yazar merkeze buz (kıyametin kendisi), asıl adam, muhafız ve gümüş saçlı kızı koymuş ve tam bir psikolojik romana dönüştürmüş hikayeyi. Buz, hem kıyametin simgesi iken hem de distopik bir dünyanın tetikleyicisi konumunda. 

Romanın bende uyandırdığı his, daha popüler bir örnekle açıklamak gerekirse Melancholica filmindeki karamsarlık, dinginlige yakın.

Romanın merkezindeki buz faktörü her şeyi gün be gün kaplayan, ilerleyen, yaşadığımız dünyayı (yarattığımız da denilebilir) sürekli ele geçiren ve yok eden bir simge olarak sunulmuş. Buzdan saklanan, yaklaştıkça kaçan, birbirleriyle savaşan, kendi içinde savaşan ülkeler ve toplumlar da buz simgesinin kısa sürede yarattığı distopik dünyayı ortaya koymakta.

Buz varolan boktan dünyayı (insanların yarattığı boktan yaşama biçimi diyelim, yoksa dünya gayet güzel bir gezegen) bir süreliğine daha boktan bir hale getirmeye vesile olup sistemi tamamen yok ediyor. 

Böylesi bir süreçte roman 3 karakter üzerinden ilerliyor. Kız (gümüş saçlı) ve ona aşık iki erkek. İkisi de ona sahip, ikisi de ona sahip değil. İki erkek karakter fiziksel ve kişilik olarak birbirine tamamen zıt görünse de aynı .okun soyular diyebiliriz. Daha doğrusu aynı sistemin ürettiği farklı modeller. Muhafız, güçlü, mükemmel görünüşlü, karizmatik, asker ve otoritenin temsilcisi bir karakter iken diğer kendi halinde, güçsüz, sıradan gözükmesine rağmen sistemde önemli konuma sahip bir erkek modeli. Aslında roman boyunca bu iki erkek karakterin tek bir karakter olduğu vurgusu ve hissiyatı mevcut bu da biraz önce dediğim aynı .okun soyular. Biraz da bu durumu çözmek okuyucuya bırakılmış, daha doğrusu okuyucunun kendi içsel kurgusunda yazar okuyucuya bir serbestlik sunmuş gibi.

Kadın karakteri de siz okuyup özümseyin. Bir kaç anlatılmamış nokta da kalsın.


İlla ki okunmalı.

Tumblred by innofneverland on March 16, 2015, 11:26 p.m.

I have always admired Anna Kavan among the few writers who dared to explore the nocturnal world of our dreams, fantasies, and imagination. It takes courage and great skill in expression. As the events of the world prove the constancy of irrationalism, it becomes absurd to treat such events with rational logic. But people prefer to accept the notion of the absurd rather than to search for the meaning, the symbolic act which is quite clear in whoever is willing to decipher the unconscious. R.D. Laing writes in The Politics of Experience: ‘We all live in hope that authentic meetings between human beings can still occur. Psychotherapy consists in the paring away of all that stands between us, the props, masks, roles, lies, defenses, anxieties, projections ,and introjections, in short, all the carry-over from the past. Transference and countertransference that we use by habit and collusion, wittingly or unwittingly, as our currency for relationship.’

The writer who follows the designs and patterns of the unconscious achieves the same revelation. From the very first Anna Kavan went into this realm with The House of Sleep (a significant beginning) then with a classic equal to the works of Kafka titled Asylum Piece, in which the non-rational human beings caught in a web of unreality still struggle to maintain a dialogue with those who cannot understand them. In later books the waking dreamers no longer try, they simply tell of their adventures. They live in isolation with their shadows, hallucinations, prophesies. We admire the deep sea divers exploring the depths of the sea. We do not admire enough those who are able to describe their nocturnal experiences. Those who demonstrate that the surface does not contain a key to authentic experience, that the truth lies in what we feel and not what we see, or how we see it. Familiarity with inner landscapes would in the end illume the mysteries of the human mind. The scientist can report psychological findings but the writer has been there. His is a first hand report. And this is not a personal, unique voyage to the antipodes of the mind–the unconscious is a universal ocean in which all of us have roots.
– Anaïs Nin, from The Novel of the Future amended to serve as an Introduction to Ice (not used so far)

The people in the story live through the same situation twice over. But they are not the same, and the outcome is different, because the element of nightmare which predominates the first experience is in abeyance later. Their identities are equally real or unreal in both cases. The ‘you’ of the bird’s question could be either, or both of them-or neither.

I wanted to abandon realistic writing insofar as it describes exclusively events in the physical environment, and to make the reader aware of the existence of the different, though just as real 'reality’ which lies just beyond the surface of ordinary daily life and the surface aspect of things. I am convinced that a vast, exciting new territory is waiting to be explored by the writer in that direction. To explore it, unconventional techniques are required. For instance the repetition of certain incidents in the same or slightly differing forms is meant to create a three-dimensional effect-an effect in depth-and to show that there is not 'absolute’ reality, but that every happening will appear different at different times to different people.

By avoiding any detailed characterization or plot, I wanted to free the reader from the actual written word, so that he would not be trapped in a a piece of reportage, but stimulated to relate what is written to his own and the whole human condition. Which of course is again different for each individual.

There is, I believe, a kind of telepathy between the condemned: a sort of intuitive recognition which can even make itself felt through the medium of the printed page. How else should I feel—without fear of appearing presumptuous, either—for this great man whom I never saw and to whom I could not have spoken, the tender, wincing, pathetic solicitude that painfully comes into being only between fellow-sufferers?

“ In this haunting and surreal novel, the narrator and a man known as the warden searches for an elusive girl in a frozen, seemingly post-nuclear, apocalyptic landscape. The country has been invaded and is being governed by a secret organization. There is destruction everywhere; great walls of ice overrun the world. Together with the narrator, the reader is swept into a hallucinatory quest for this strange and fragile creature with albino hair.

Acclaimed upon its 1967 publication as the best science fiction book of the year, this extraordinary and innovative novel has subsequently been recognized as a major work of literature in its own right.”

It was hideously unfair … he’d never wanted a victim. All he had ever hoped for was a little contact with someone to make him feel less isolated in the world. What injustice that he should have to suffer all this. How diabolical of fate to involve him with the very person who appealed so irresistibly to his sadistic impulse, which otherwise might have remained in abeyance.

Despairingly she looked all round. She was completely encircled by the tremendous ice walls, which were made fluid by explosions of blinding light, so that they moved and changed with a continuous liquid motion, advancing in torrents of ice, avalanches as big as oceans, flooding everywhere over the doomed world. Wherever she looked, she saw the same fearful encirclement, soaring battlements of ice, an over-hanging ring of frigid, fiery, colossal waves about to collapse upon her. Frozen by the deathly cold emanating from the ice, dazzled by the blaze of crystalline ice-light, she felt herself becoming part of the polar vision, her structure becoming one with the ice and snow. As her fate, she accepted the world of ice, shining, shimmering, dead; she resigned herself to the triumph of glaciers and the death of her world.

For a moment, my lights picked out like searchlights the girl’s naked body, slight as a child’s, ivory white against the dead white of the snow, her hair bright as spun glass. She did not look in my direction. Motionless, she kept her eyes fixed on the walls moving slowly towards her, a glassy, glittering circle of solid ice, of which she was the centre. Dazzling flashes came from the ice-cliffs far over her head; below, the outermost fringes of ice had already reached her, immobilised her, set hard as concrete over her feet and ankles. I watched the ice climb higher, covering knees and thighs, saw her mouth open, a black hole in the white face, heard her thin agonised scream.

Mais, bien sûr, il n’est pas bon de se lamenter, de se plaindre ou d’élever des protestations auxquelles personne ne fait attention et qui peuvent même, pour tout ce que je sais, être finalement utilisés contre moi et à mon désavantage.

Avec n’importe qui d’autre, j’avais dû être réservée et soupçonneuse, me souvenant du proverbe: “Le silence est un ami qui ne trahit jamais personne.” Car comment pourrais-je savoir si la personne à qui je parle n’est pas un ennemi, ou peut-être en relation avec mes accusateurs ou avec ceux qui vont ultérieurement décider de mon destin ?

J’en arrivais à penser à que si je ne sortais pas de ce cercle vicieux, j’allais devenir folle, que j’allais crier, que j’allais commettre un acte de violence éhonté dans la rue. Mais le fait de savoir que les lois de mon tempérament m’interdiraient ne serait-ce qu’un soulagement de cet ordre, que j’étais inexorablement emprisonnée dans ma détermination à ne laisser paraître aucune émotion était pire que tout.

Suddenly a soldier’s automatic awareness of weather conditions made him look out the window. A peculiar blanching and blurring process was obscuring the light outside. The sun was paling, a curious dimming was everywhere apparent, a pallor was diffusing itself into the air, smudging the shapes and stealing the colours of the garden flowers. Eclipsed to a pale lamp, the sun suddenly went out altogether; the cliff withdrew from sight. Only a few of the flowers in the foreground still floated, dim and derealized, colourless ghosts of themselves,in the thick white mists billowing up from the invisible water, which could be heard softly sucking and smacking the rocks below. (p.20)

So she was disconcerted to see, straight above them, the hoary grey head of rock, thrust into and filling the sky. Taking her by surprise, the bare upheaval of naked granite, grim and overwhelming in its immensity and nearness, had a strong effect on her imagination. She’d never been close to one of the tors; and, to her surprised eyes, there was something extraordinary about the huge knot of pale, up-ended stones, towering aggressively just overhead, like a fortress, excluding the sun. (p.31)

Suddenly, as she looked, the valley sank out of sight, all its toylike brightness put out as the sun disappeared and the lumpish tors heaved themselves up all around it in  startling significance, huge and uncanny, the gloomy dark masses of moorland standing out menacingly. (p.47)

Literary Luminaries: Beards, Vaginas and the Avant-Garde Novelist – Part II

Part II: ReadWomen

IN THE FIRST PART of this essay on Monday, I took a look at the way in which cult female novelists are usually forgotten or ignored, whilst male cult authors, from Burroughs to Hunter S. Thompson, remain literary icons that are cherished by the public imagination. The same issue lies with women who are writing Big Books on a large canvas. Many of these problems arise from the…

Alıştığımız macera dolu, sürükleyici, türlü kurmaca oyunlarıyla dolu, bütün hücrelerine kadar hayran kaldığımız  sıradışı kahramanlarının olduğu bir roman değil ‘Buz’! Aksine, yer yer ince bölgelerin olduğu bir buz üstünde yürürcesine tedirgin ediyor okuru. Hangi adımda kırılıp  bizi altındaki suya hapsedecek diye ilerliyoruz. Kahramanın yolculuğu ve haliyle roman tam böyle bir belirsizlikte seyrediyor, örneğin kahramanların adı ve yaşadıkları yerler bile ‘belli değil’! Bir kadın ve o kadının varlığı dışında hiçbir şeyi umursamayan, meseleyi sadece tuhaf bir rekabete çevirmiş iki erkek kahramdan oluşuyor kadro. İsimsizler, belirsizler! Anna Kavan bu belirsiz mekan ve kahramanlar aracılığıyla bizi gerçekten tuhaf bir soğukluğa sahip atmosfere hapsediyor! Fizikteki ‘aşırı soğuma’ kavramını bilirsiniz; yeni erimiş madde (örneğin su) donma noktasına kadar soğuduğu halde donmamıştır. Bu aşırı soğumuş / donmada gecikmiş sıvıya kendi cinsinden küçük bir billur (kristal) atıldığı anda sıvı madde birden donar! Anna Kavan’ın romanı da tam böyle olaylar silsilesinden oluşuyor. Bir kadın ve iki adamdan oluşan üçlü bir araya geldiği anda olağanüstü hızlı bir buzlanma yaşanıyor! Büyüleyici bir metafor kullanımı sergiliyor Kavan. Modern klasik hitabını ilk harfinden itibaren hak eden bir eser ‘Buz’.

Ice cliffs boomed in my dreams, indescribable explosions thundered and boomed, icebergs crashed, hurled huge boulders into the sky like rockets. Dazzling ice stars bombarded the world with rays, which splintered and penetrated the earth, filling earth’s core with their deadly coldness, reinforcing the cold of the advancing ice. And always, on the surface, the indestructible ice-mass was moving forward, implacably destroying all life. . . . Her albino hair illuminated my dreams, shining brighter than moonlight. I saw the dead moon dance over the icebergs, as it would at the end of our world, while she watched from the tent of her glittering hair.

(Kavan, Anna. Ice. New York: Popular Library, 1967)

There are certain shocks which, if sufficiently strong, seem to have power to destroy the balance of life. Such a shock would seem to overthrow all the intricate, vital, slowly developed mechanism of mind, to plunge the victim into a chaotic half-world of confusion and loss. This is what had happened to Anna.

But she accepted the fact as she accepted all things that happened to her, expecting to be ill-treated, to be made a victim, ultimately to be destroyed, either by unknown forces or by human beings. This fate seemed always to have been waiting for her, ever since time began. Only love might have saved her from it. But she had never looked for love. Her part was to suffer; that was known and accepted. Fatality brought resignation. It was no use fighting against her fate. She knew she had been beaten before the start.

This nearly autobiographical tale follows Anna-Marie’s life from birth to her early adulthood. Anna’s mother dies shortly after childbirth, so she is left to be raised with her emotionally distant and intellectually challenging father. She is raised in a small estate, a fair distance away from any other children, which causes her to become emotionally detached as an adult. When her father commits suicide, she is left in the custody of her vain, self serving, and cruel aunt, who immediately sticks her in boarding school. After Anna breaks the rules and sneaks out of the school at night, she is sent back to her aunt’s home where she remains until she meets Matthew Kavan. He asks her to marry him, and misunderstands her answer. They get married without Anna’s entire consent. Anna refuses to let him sleep with her or touch her after the wedding and continues long afterwards. They move to Sri Lanka together. (I’m pretty sure that’s what she said. The whole time it was just referred to as The East) Anna is unhappy there because she misses the English countryside, and because she left all of her friends behind. Matthew loses his patience with Anna and rapes her, which she suffers from physically, but mentally, “her spirit remained cold, reckless, and unchanging. Not ever did he become real to her.” Anna writes one of her friends to come and visit her, which ends the book, but doesn’t really resolve the conflict.

Personally, I thought Let Me Alone was okay. I definitely felt bad for the author, Anna Kavan, but sometimes it was hard to feel bad for the character Anna Kavan. In the beginning of the book especially, she seemed to sympathize with her character way too much, even though she was part of the conflict. The writing style is rather old because the book was published in 1930, but even then, she seemed very repetitive and used strange expressions to describe things, Matthew especially. She put a lot of emphasis on the fact that he had a round, ball-like head, that he was a “queer fish” (?) and that he was very monkeyish. And those were like the only three phrases she used. A lot of the time it felt like you were listening to someone ramble on and on, and you couldn’t really be sure if they were even going anywhere, or if they had circled back to a point they had already made. Overall, it was alright. I

n the short introduction, a quote from The New York Times Book Review is used. “She is interesting because her works comes through with a powerful and androgynous individuality and because the stories are luminous and rich with a fresh kind of peril. She knows how to pull us into her world, her dreams and nightmares— how to have all of it become ours.” I feel that that was a bit of a stretch. Maybe it’s just me, but it felt like the emotions were muted and her thoughts weren’t freely expressed. It was difficult to relate to her at points. I definitely recommend it for the story, because that was compelling, but the writing was mediocre.

And when we were sentimental, standing in front of the house where he used to live, the poet, the tears came in our eyes, and we were uplifted. We said to one other, We too will write beautiful words, we will be remembered. And we felt uplifted. While you are young you have splendid pure feelings. Afterwards it’s different, there are various euphonic substitutes.

The wave of bitterness that had swept her up there had subsided and left her stranded, not sure that she wanted to stay, not knowing how to get down—would she ever be able to make the descent?

Anna Kavan and the Politics of Madness
Victoria Walker

10 December 2013
7pm - exhibition viewing from 6pm

Author Anna Kavan’s critical and popular reception since her death in 1968 has been defined by a cult of personality fuelled by revelations about her psychiatric breakdown, heroin use and adoption of her own fictional character’s name. Victoria Walker unravels some of the accumulated mythology around this writer, and examines her complex association with, and interest in, early twentieth-century psychiatry and
psychotherapy.

As well as being treated in private asylums and nursing homes, Kavan underwent a short analysis at the Tavistock Clinic, experienced Ludwig Binswanger’s method of existential psychotherapy at the Bellevue Sanatorium, and had a close personal relationship with her longtime psychiatrist Karl Bluth. Kavan promoted a radical politics of madness, giving voice to the disenfranchised and marginalized psychiatric patient and presaging the anti-psychiatry movement.

Part of a season of performances, talks, films and events accompanying the exhibition ‘Mad, Bad and Sad: Women and the Mind Doctors’, 10 October 2013 - 2 February 2014.
(Thanks, Sean.)

This was a great random find on the shelf: another reason I love our local library. True to its title this is a chilly and uncomfortable book. Needless to say, it deserves a lot more attention that I’m giving it here. But a few notable things: I really like the narrative speed of it; at times the story moves in fast motion, giving it the feel of a videotape being fast-forwarded. I like how the nuclear winter comes without the bomb blasts (or is it just before them?) — the icy ruin are great, and the slow freezing of the tropic regions. The uncomfortable part, which could stand up to much more analysis, I’m sure, is the relation between the narrator, the girl whose pursuit takes up the entire plot, and the Warden, a strange dictatorial figure who is her abductor and her ward. Or possibly a splinter off the weird soulless narrator. Either way, the interplay between these three is downright creepy.

In an indescribable way our looks tangled together. I seemed to be looking at my own reflexion. Suddenly I was entangled in utmost confusion, not sure which of us was which. We were like halves of one being, joined in some mysterious symbiosis. I fought to retain my identity, but all my efforts failed to keep us apart. I continually found I was not myself, but him. At one moment I actually seemed to be wearing his clothes. I fled from the room in utter confusion; afterwards did not know what had happened, or if anything had.

When I considered that imperative need I felt for her, as for a missing part of myself, it appeared less like love than an inexplicable aberration, the sign of some character-flaw I ought to eradicate, instead of letting it dominate me.

Dünya yana yatıyor, Anna Kavan okuyunca. Kâğıtlara değil de aynalara yazıyor sanki yazar. Kavan’ın cümleleri, bir aynada yan yana gelen gerçekler ve yalanlar gibi. Gerçek ile hayali ele ele tutuşturmak, onları birbirinden ayırmadan yazı yazmak için dünyaya gelmiş Anna Kavan. Yaşadığı süre içinde bunu çok iyi yaptığını kitaplarından anlıyoruz. Adı, Kafka’nın mirasçısı kadın yazarlar arasında geçiyor.

Kendine mahlas olarak seçtiği Anna Kavan ismi ise “deliliğinin” patlama noktasına geldiği Let Me Alone (Beni Yalnız Bırak) adlı kitabının kahramanının ismi. Bu ad Kafka’ya açık bir gönderme. Anna Kavan’ın 1957 yılında yayımladığı Kartal Yuvası aradan geçen elli yıldan sonra Roza Hakmen çevirisiyle nihayet Türkçede.


Üç kez “ölmeye yatmak”
Gerçek adı Helen Woods olan Anna Kavan, 1901 yılında Fransa’nın Cannes şehrinde doğdu. Çocukluğu Avrupa’nın birçok şehrinde ve Kaliforniya’da geçti. Ömrünün en rahatsız edici ve tüm hayatını etkileyen kâbusu anne figürüydü. Uzak, bencil bir anne figürü… Kavan, daha sonraları bu anne figürünü kitaplarında da kullandı. Yaşamı boyunca başarısız iki evlilik yaptı. İlk evliliğini amcasının zorlamasıyla Oxford’taki bursunu yarım bırakarak gerçekleştirdi. Yazmaya, kocasıyla birlikte Burma’da yaşadığı yıllarda başladı. 1926’da eroin bağımlısı oldu. Birkaç yıl sonra onu sürekli kontrol etmeye çalışan sadist ruhlu kocasına dayanamayarak ondan ayrıldı. 1931’de ikinci kez evlendi. Kavan, hayatı boyunca üç kez intihar girişiminde bulundu ve ilkini 30’ların sonunda ikinci evliliğinin bitişinin ardından yaptı. Bu yıllarda sık sık geçirdiği ve kurtulamadığı depresyonu, varoluş biçimi olarak tanımladı ve sürekli yazdı.
Kitaplarının isimleri, Kavan’ın ruhundaki iniş-çıkışların ve değişimin ipucuydu. Kitap karakterlerini ebedi yolculukların yolcuları olarak yarattı. Ve deneysel yazın üzerine yoğunlaştı. Hayal ile gerçek arasında belki en çok bu sıralarda gidip geldi. 1942 yılında ikinci kez intihar girişiminde bulundu. Bu yıllarda Dr. Karl Theodor Blut, onun sırdaşı ve psikanalistiydi. Yazarın üçüncü ve son ihtihar girişimi de 1964’de Blut’un ölümünün ardından olacaktı.
Anna Kavan, kendini işine adamış bir yazar ve yetenekli bir ressam aynı zamanda dekoratördü. Yazar, Londra’da beğinilen sergilere de imzasını attı. Oldukça içine kapanık bir kişiliğe sahip Kavan, ömrünün sonlarına doğru münzevi bir hayat sürmeye başladı. 1968 yılında, elinde, romanlarında ‘bazuka’ olarak adlandırdığı şırıngası ile ölü bulundu. “Düşman” adlı öyküsünde kendine yakıştırdığı ölüm ânı buna oldukça yakındı. “Muhtemelen geceleyin gelecekler benim için. Ne tabancalar ne de kelepçeler olacak; her şey sakin ve düzenli olacak; üniformalı ya da beyaz ceketli iki üç adam, birinde bir derialtı şırıngası olacak. İşte bu olacak bana. Mahkûm olduğumu biliyorum ve kaderime karşı savaşmayacağım. Bunları sadece, artık beni görmeyince düşmanımın nihayet zafere ulaştığını bilesiniz diye yazıyorum.”


Buhranlı yıllardan sonra
Anna Kavan, 1957 yılında, tarzında olgunlaştığı romanı Kartal Yuvası’nı yazdı. Kitap, yazarın en kafkaesk romanı olarak bilinir. Kavan, Kartal Yuvası'nda bir Anlatıcı vasıtasıyla varoluşu sorgular. Dayanılmaz yalnızlığı ve yaşadığı ortamın kuralları altında varlığını sürdüremeyen bireyin (Anlatıcı'nın) hikâyesini anlatır. Bir iş ilanı vesilesiyle bulunduğu çevreden ve ortamdan kurtuluşunu arayan Anlatıcı, Yönetici diye adlandırdığı bir işverenin kütüphanesinde çalışmak üzere yola çıkar. Bu yolculuk varlığının sınırlarını zorladığı bir yolculuk olur. Ve kendini Kartal Yuvası adı verilen, gerçek ve düşün karıştığı bir mekân da bulur. Kartal Yuvası, tropikal bitki örtüleri ve şelalelerden oluşan gerçeküstü bir yer olarak temsil edilir. Burada âdetler farklıdır ve gizemlidir. Her şey başka bir şeyin simgesidir ve bu işaretler çeşitli şekillerde yorumlanabilir. Bu tuhaf bir coğrafyada Anlatıcı hiç ummadığı şeylerle yüz yüze gelir. Hayal gücünün ve Anlatıcı'nın aklının kuytu köşelerinin simgesi bu yer, melankoli ve düş kırıklığıyla doludur. Kartal Yuvası, tekinsiz bir rüya, somut dünyanın taleplerinin işlemediği bir yerdir.

*******************************************************************************

Bir süre boyunca, aynı kentte yaşayan, işimden dolayı tanıdığım bir Yönetici, beni müthiş bir iyi yüreklilikle koruması altına aldı ve büyük kütüphanesindeki kitapların kataloglama işinde istihdam etti. Bu zengin, nüfuzlu adamın himayesi altında, konforlu evinde kalıp personelden çok dostu, eşit konumdaki biri gibi muamele gördüğüm sürece, başıma gelenleri gerçek yüzüyle algılamam imkânsızdı. O yaz mevsimi, önceki güvenli, varlıklı koşullarımdan yoksulluğa, istikrarsız bağımlılığa geçişi tam fark edemeden geçti. Yeni ilgi alanlarına ve yeni bir ortama yoğunlaşarak, günler boyunca kaybettiğim mesleğimi düşünmediğim oluyordu.
Ara sıra, Yönetici’nin evindeki konumumun tam olarak belirtilmemesine hayıflanıyordum. Ama konuyu açmak bir güvensizlik belirtisi olurdu; konumumun açıkça tanımlanması isteğimin bürokratik düşünce tarzının bir kalıntısından ibaret olduğuna ikna ettim kendimi, çünkü dostane velinimetime güvenim tamdı. Eylül ayının sonlarına doğru bir gün, bu arada kendime bir iş aramış olduğumu umduğunu, çünkü yakında evi kapatıp güneydeki malikânesine gideceğini söyleyince korkunç bir şaşkınlık yaşadım.
O feci ânı hatırlamak hâlâ dayanılmaz geliyor bana; başımı yastığın üzerinde döndürüp o hatıradan kaçmaya çalışınca gözlerim pencereyle aynı hizaya geliyor; dışarıda, tek tük beyaz parçacıkların ağır ağır beyaz kenarlı damlara doğru süzüldüğü bulutlu gökyüzü fonunda kırağı bağlamış baca külahlarından oluşan vahşi bir friz görünüyor. Kışların olağanüstü sert geçtiği, mali durumu elveren herkesin yılın birkaç ayını güneyde geçirdiği kentten ilk ayrılanlardan birinin bu zengin Yönetici olması tesadüf değildi. Yıllık göçünü tamamen kanıksamış olduğundan bana daha önce söz etmeyi akıl etmediğini şimdi anlıyorum elbette. Ama o sırada dehşete düşmüş, şaşırmıştım; benden kurtulmak istediği fikrine kapıldım. Kötü niyetli bazı dedikodular duymuş olacağını düşündüm; kovulmamla ilgili olarak, ileri sürdüğüm kadar kabahatsiz olmadığımdan şüphelenmesine yol açacak bir şey.
Hakkını vermem gerekir: Ne kadar allak bullak olduğumu görünce, durumu düzeltmeye çalıştı; o zamana kadar sürekli bir iş bulamamışsam, ilkbaharda tekrar gelip kataloğu bitirecektim; bu arada da, yapabileceği bir şey olursa ona mutlaka haber vermeliydim.
Bu dostça yaklaşımı ve ilgisinin devam edeceğini vaat etmesi beni bir ölçüde rahatlattı. Ama geçirdiğim şok, önceki sorgusuz sualsiz güvenimi sarsmış ve gecikmiş de olsam, durumumun ne kadar kötülediğini anlamama sebep olmuştu. Ansızın çepeçevre güvensizlik uçurumlarıyla kuşatılmıştım; birkaç iyi niyetli cümle ve muğlak bir yardım vaadiyle aşılamayacak kadar derin ve geniş uçurumlar. Artık aramızda bir iletişimsizlik vardı. Hayatı istikrarsızlık temeli üzerine kurulu hale gelmiş olan ben, hayatı boyunca tek bir an güvensizlik yaşamamış olan bir adamla gerçek bir temas kurmamın mümkün olabileceğini nasıl düşünmüştüm?

I could not be sure whether it was a man or a woman who lay there, shrouded as if on a bier, but I thought I discerned a tarnished gleam of fair hair, and presently an arm, no thicker than bone, was raised, feebly, as if groping towards the light. Was it imagination, or did I really see on that almost translucent flesh a faint stain, circular, toothed, and enclosing a shape like a rose?

Snow peaks are standing all around the sky, phantom-pale in the night, vast disembodied ghost-shapes, larger than life, floating in luminous pallor, the moon’s ethereal crescent gliding between. Am I driving or dreaming? Dreamlike, these colossal, fantastic mountains, aloof like gods. Dreamlike, sky-diving moon. Dream road, unending, always spiraling upward. Nightmare road, verging on dizzy chasms, a knife-edge eternally twisting in steeper and sharper bends. Shall I ever get around the next one?

All of a sudden, she remembers her lost happiness. For an infinitesimal fraction of time she again experiences that almost forgotten sense of security and belonging…the bliss of loving and being loved, transforming life into supreme happiness, such intense joy that the surrounding air vibrates and sparkles with gaiety. In a flash it’s all over. She’s back in her aloneness. No vibration, no sparkle, no happiness. Gaiety is unthinkable. Happiness is dead, finished, nothing… perhaps it never existed.

I am constantly aware of the heart beating inside my breast, strongly and resolutely pumping the blood throught my veins. Once I read somewhere that when the blood is thin it wants to return whence it came. But my blood is not thin, my blood does not want to fall back. Unbearable reluctance of the blood that will not fall.

Despairingly she looked all round. She was completely encircled by the tremendous ice walls, which were made fluid by explosions of blinding light, so that they moved and changed with a continuous liquid motion, advancing in torrents of ice, avalanches as big as oceans, flooding everywhere over the doomed world. Wherever she looked, she saw the same fearful encirclement, soaring battlements of ice, an over-hanging ring of frigid, fiery, colossal waves about to collapse upon her. Frozen by the deathly cold emanating from the ice, dazzled by the blaze of crystalline ice-light, she felt herself becoming part of the polar vision, her structure becoming one with the ice and snow. As her fate, she accepted the world of ice, shining, shimmering, dead; she resigned herself to the triumph of glaciers and the death of her world.

2012 was a great year of reading for me. I discovered many new favorites. I read books that have impressed me, stunned me, and have meant more to me than I could have ever imagined.

I read 46 books this year, which is more than last year but less than I wanted to accomplish. I am still proud, because I have been able to explore areas and genres completely new to me, such as poetry. I read more Shakespeare than ever before, and I am slowly becoming an expert on Edward Gorey and evil children.

You can see the full list here on my Goodreads. (Feel free to add me!)

The books I’ve chose to represent this post and this year are Macdonald Harris’s Mortal Leap, Édouard Levé’s Suicide, Maggie Nelson’s Bluets, and Anna Kavan’s Ice. I highly recommend them all.

Instead of the darkness, she faced a stupendous sky-conflagration, an incredible glacial dream-scene. Cold coruscations of rainbow fire pulsed overhead, shot through by shafts of pure incandescence thrown out by the mountains of solid ice towering all round. Closer, the trees round the house, sheathed in ice, dripped and sparkled with weird prismatic jewels, reflecting the vivid changing cascades above. Instead of the familiar night sky, the aurora borealis formed a blazing, vibrating roof of intense cold and colour, beneath which the earth was trapped with all its inhabitants, walled in by those impassable glittering ice-cliffs. The world had become an arctic prison from which no escape was possible, all its creatures trapped as securely as were the trees, already lifeless inside their deadly resplendent armour.

"My somewhat tortured love affair with modernism began when I was working in a bookshop in London, reading these amazing women writers of that period who I had never heard of previously, obscure or minor or forgotten (Jane Bowles, Djuna Barnes, Jean Rhys, Olive Moore, Anna Kavan). I began to meditate on ideas of disappearance, on the canon as a memory campaign. Then I began to read and research the biographies of muses who were not as successful as writers, but who still wanted to write (Vivien(ne) Eliot, T.S. Eliot’s first wife; Zelda Fitzgerald, June Miller) and began to think about what would keep someone from writing."
Probably says something re: my own tortured affair with modernism that I’ve read up thoroughly on all but one of these women. Who’s Olive Moore—does anyone know?
But I do think that this invisible community—the female safe spaces of the Internet, when we can find these spaces—is quite valuable and important, even if we might never meet our confidantes and intimates we discourse with in comments sections or over email. The solidarity and sense of community I felt in this subsubsubculture of girls and women who identify as writers on the Internet I think bolstered my own nerve and confidence, especially to finish the book. I have found real friendships with other writers to be sometimes difficult—writers can be prickly, very self-involved and sensitive sorts, speaking of myself most of all! But to be able to talk of solitude, to talk of writing—that has been very important. Writing can be an alienating occupation, to push oneself to persist while being unsuccessful in the eyes of most, not valued within capitalism. In Heroines I look at these earlier generations of women, who were often wives or mistresses of famous men, and meditate on how they were so often isolated from each other, competitive, turned away. Like Zelda with Hadley Hemingway. Or Vivien(ne) with Virginia Woolf, even though both suffered so intensely. Sometimes I wishfully think that real friendship with other women could really have saved many of them from losing themselves.
Sometimes I find “writer” rhetoric unbearably precious,but I mostly like this. Also, what do people know about Hemingway’s wife?

They discussed the gulls that the fisherman and his wife believed were souls in search of a body, coming to scream around the houses where there was a wedding bed of a body laid out for burial; and they mentioned certain toothless dogs, encountered only at night and supposedly hosts to souls in torment, that would take your hand in their cold, smooth mouths; they spoke of a great white skate that appeared on the surface of the sea and would vanish only after having heard the service for the dead chanted aloud by the crew; they discussed the eels that left the tide-pools during the heat of the day to couple with the snakes among the rocks of the beach; and they mentioned the other serpents that tempted the goats to strange nuptials and made them give milk by biting their udders.

How is it possible not to lose hope in these circumstances? As the days drag on without bringing forth anything more definite than a number of contradictory whispers or perhaps some equivocal and incomprehensible official communication of which one can’t make head or tail, it’s extremely difficult not to despair.

Tell me a story…

Heather and Ivan Morison, Anna, The Hepworth Wakefield, 11 February - 10 June 2012.

Full disclosure: I worked with Heather and Ivan, back in the day, when their work existed in the space between the actual, the improbable and the faintly plausible. Thrillingly, you never quite knew were you were with them. Ivan would send out cards detailing events in his allotment - blackspot on the broad beans, a stunning display of sweet peas - and you were, more or less, happy to take his word for it. Except that, somehow, you wanted to see, just to make sure. They used images sparingly, evidentially, betting on the tendentious ‘presence’ of the occasional photograph. I believed them. Well, perhaps I did.

Anna, the Morisons’ installation at the Hepworth Wakefield, evokes presence in a different way. Based on the life and work of cult novelist Anna Kavan, it grasps for archetypes and universals through coded messages.

Walking into the room, you’re surrounded by disperate objects laid on wooden blocks: withered roses, an ox’s skull, an egg. In the middle, a heap of black bones. Everything’s resinous, artificial: mysterious symbols rather than actual things. A balloon glows overhead. One wall’s ash-black, another bone-white. At certain times, the wall text says, puppets animate the installation. Puppets freak me out, and I’m glad I don’t see them.

Instead, disembodied voices sketch connections between objects, guiding you round the space to piece the story together. In the echoing acoustics it’s hard to hear them clearly. I feel I’m lost in some fantasy game. The Legend of Zelda or whatever. If I ask an invigilator, they might well say “Don’t ask me, I’m just a kid.” Heather and Ivan’s work still gives and witholds.

The light in the gallery’s beautiful. It’s sunny outside.

On the way out I spot the puppets, strung up behind reception, inanimate and sinister.

Wish I still had Ivan’s allotment cards.

In time I found out what it was that the rain whispered. I learnt from the rain how to work the magic and then I stopped feeling lonely. I learnt to know the house in the night way of mice and spiders. I learnt to read the geography of the house bones. Invisible and unheard I scampered down secret tunnels beneath the floor boards and walked a tightrope webbing among the beams.

After that I never wished for children to play with, or for the Japanese houseboy to tell me fantastic stories. Hidden by curtains, sheltered in cupboards, ambushed in foxholes between the tables and chairs, I transmuted flat daylight into my night-time magic and privately made for myself a world out of spells and whispers.

The whole bag of tricks flashes up at his touch in an explosion of glittering dust. There’s a split second’s glimpse of the vast sad blackness of infinity before the perfectly bare void is spattered by this glittering exsurgence, this bursting fountain of molecules, instantly crystallizing to sequins of differing size. And now at once begins the fiery development of comets, suns, planets, nebulæ; constellations are clotted together; worlds rush forth on their immense navigations; the monstrous efflorescence of the universe burgeons in the flick of an eyelash. Creation is under way. The solar system is off. Larger and more brilliant blaze the globes, the stars roar past like stratoliners to destinations not checked in quadrillions. The billiard-ball earth swings up and flattens colossally underfoot. The thunderous revving of the cosmic machines settles to the steady beat of eternity.

"A human being can only endure depression up to a certain point; when this point of saturation is reached it becomes necessary for him to discover some element of pleasure, no matter how humble or on how low a level, in his environment if he is to go on living at all. In my case these insignificant birds with their subdued colorings have provided just sufficient distraction to keep me from total despair. Each day I find myself spending longer and longer at the window watching their flights, their quarrels, their mouse-quick flutterings, their miniature feuds and alliances. Curiously enough, it is only when I am standing in front of the window that I feel any sense of security. While I am watching the birds I believe that I am comparatively immune from the assaults of life. The very indifference to humanity of these wild creatures affords me a certain safeguard. Where all else is dangerous, hostile and liable to inflict pain, they alone can do no injury because, probably, they are not even aware of my existence. The birds are at once my refuge and my relaxation."

Carrying my suitcase, I walked into the town. Silence obtruded itself. Nothing moved. The devastation was even greater than it had seemed from the boat. Not a building intact. Wreckage heaped in blank spaces where houses had been. Walls had crumbled; steps ascended and stopped in mid-air; arches opened on to deep craters. Little had been done to repair this wholesale destruction. Only the main streets were clear of rubble, the rest obliterated. Faint tracks, like the tracks of animals, but made by human beings, twisted among the debris. I looked in vain for somebody to direct me. The whole place seemed deserted. A train whistle at last guided me to the station, a small makeshift building constructed with materials salvaged from ruins, which reminded me of a discarded film set. Even here there was no sign of life, though presumably a train had just left. It was hard to believe the place was really in use; that anything really functioned. I was aware of an uncertainty of the real, in my surroundings and in myself. What I saw had no solidity, it was all made of mist and nylon, with nothing behind

She’s so quiet - hardly has a word to say for herself - just sits or stands about as if she were an image or something. You’d think from that that she was just a nonentity, but she isn’t. There’s something very positive about her, somehow.

Although she was only twenty-four, everything seemed to be finished. A kind of sterility hung over everything that she did; inside, she was empty and lost. Nothing seemed to have any meaning. Her life was a senseless gibbering of phantoms.

1957:

Everything appeared slightly distorted to me just then. I saw the station as the garishly lit shrine of some cult, dedicated to huge iron monsters, bellowing peremptorily at the timid subservient humans, who flocked to and fro in obedient herds. (p.18)

In the foreground too there was only rock: boulders heaped up in a frenzied confusion, in imitation of every imaginable and unimaginable form, a chaos of the grotesque, the obscene, the mad, an exhibition of insane statuary, producing an almost terrifying effect on myin my exhausted condition; I could hardly bear to look, repelled by the extraordinarily bizarre agitation of the lifeless stone. (p.29)

Wherever I looked, I encountered the same blank rejection, as though, by rejecting the hand, I had initiated a mass-reaction in my surroundings. With dreadful finality, the room itself was casting me into outer darkness. (p.138)

Or something like this may happen while you are out for a walk in the country: you feel yourself quite alone for an hour you haven’t seen one living creature, not even a dog or a horse in a field, you seem to be miles from anywhere. And then in this solitude, out of the bushes at the side of the road, a sly face looks out at you, the face of an old man with a beard and a big hat such as is seldom worn these days. Just for a second he looks out at you. It’s really surprising to meet anyone in such a lonely place; but instead of saying Good day, he draws back, disappears into the wood, and you don’t see him again. What is it makes you feel this this old man has been watching you, perhaps following you for some time, hidden among the trees: that he has perhaps been sent to that out-of-the-way spot on purpose to see and report afterwards which track you are following, whether you turn to the right or the left at the crossroads at the foot of the hill?
Nobody knows the exact significance of those feelings which all of us have experienced:but that they bear some relation to our close surveillance by the authorities appears certain. if only it were possible to find out something definite. One feels under constant observation. One has the conviction that every trifling act is noted and set down either against one or in one’s favour. And at the same time one hasn’t the faintest clue to the standards by which one is being judged. How is it possible to avoid anxiety and indecision when a move of any kind involves the whole of one’s future status.

existence

Tumblred by literarysasquatch on Aug. 28, 2011, 2:05 p.m.

Suddenly I notice that one car has selected me as its prey and is making straight for me through all the chaos. Come on, then! Knock me down, run over me, cut off my existence. I don’t want it - don’t like it. I never did. The size of a locomotive, the hideous great mechanical dinosaur bears down up me. Already the metal towers over my head.

And now the dingy mass hits me with the full force of its horrid inhuman horsepower, a ton or so of old iron to finish me off. I’m demolished, done for, down on the pavement which is already black with my blood. Lying there, mangled, splintered, a smash matchbox, all at once I find I’m transformed into an inexhaustible fountain, spouting blood like a whale.

Huge black clots, gouts, of whale-blood shoot high in the air, then splash down in the mounting flood, soaking the nearest pedestrians. Everybody is slipping and slithering, wading in blood. It’s over their ankles. Now it’s up to their knees. All along the street, children start screaming, licking the blood off their chins, tasting it on their tongues just before they drown.

The grown-ups can’t save them, they’re drowning too. Fine! Splendid! Let them all drown, the bastards; they’ve all done their best to destroy me. I hate them all. There’s no end to my blood supply. It’s been turned on full at the main, at high pressure, nobody knows how to turn it off. Everywhere people are coughing and choking, their lungs are filling with my unbreathable blood, and it’s poison, a deadly poison, to them.

Wonderful! At last I’m being revenged on those who have persecuted me all my life. I’ve always loathed the horrible hostile creatures pressing round me in a suffocating mass, trying to get me down, to trample on me. Down with them now! Now it’s their turn to suffocate. I laugh in their faces, smeared and streaked like Red Indians with with my blood. And all the time my broken thorax goes on pouring out blood.

They’re out of their depth now. They try to swim. But their clothes are too heavy, already saturated by the thick, sticky, steaming tide. Inevitably they are dragged under, writhing, shouting and struggling. Wasting their strength in idiotic contortions, they’re all sinking and drowning already. I lash out wildly at the few survivors, hit them as hard as I can, bash them on the head, forcing them down into the sea of blood as if they were so many. Down, wantons, down!

There was a poem written for me on my comb; written very small with the nib of a pen used for mapping. And when we drifted in the punt, late, in the backwater, I combed my hair, and I was Orlando, I was not man nor girl, and I was Ariel, drifting between the worlds, and a poem in my hair.

I do not know why I must keep these pictures

small eyes, mad eyes that should have been starry the lovely danger waiting beneath the lime tree or faces cheating as they pass by, frozen for ever in their fraudulent smiles with the clocks striking an uncounted hour masks

Why this one? Or that? How chosen?

Inexorable self, carried like the superfluous and tiresome piece of luggage, which it is impossible to lose ; franked with the customs’ stamp of every frontier, retrieved exasperatingly from the disaster where everything else is lost, companion of the dislocation of canceled sailings and missed connections, witness of every catastrophe, survivor of all voyages and situations … I

On March 23, 1966, the publisher Peter Owen sent a letter to Anna Kavan, not quite rejecting, though by no means accepting, her manuscript The Cold World. He also sent along a reader’s report that described Kavan’s writing, pretty correctly it seems to me, as a cross between Kafka and The Avengers. Kavan immediately wrote back, with some spirit and what on paper, anyway, looks like good humor, saying, “This expresses quite accurately the effect I was aiming at. Considering Kafka’s reputation and the success of The Avengers, I can’t think why you don’t want the book as it is!”

This is the cover of writer Anna Kavan’s novel Sleep Has His House. Peter Owen Publishing Company writes of Sleep:

A largely autobiographical account of an unhappy childhood, Sleep Has His House startled with its strangeness in 1948. Today it is one of Anna Kavan’s most acclaimed books.

A daring synthesis of memoir and surrealist experimentation, Sleep Has His House charts chronologically the stages of the subject’s gradual withdrawal from all interest in and contact with the daylight world of received reality. Brief flashes of daily experience from childhood, adolescence and youth are described in what Kavan terms ‘night-time language’ — a heightened, decorative prose that frees these events from their gloomy associations. The novel suggests we have all spoken this dialect in childhood and in our dreams, but these thoughts can only be sharpened, or decoded by contemplation in the dark.

Anna Kavan maintained that the plot of a book is only the point of departure, beyond which she tries to reveal that side of life which is never seen by the waking eye, but which dreams and drugs can suddenly illuminate. She spent the last ten years of her life literally and metaphorically shutting out the light; the startling discovery of Sleep has His House is how much these night-time illuminations reveal her joy for the living world.

This is one of the strangest books I’ve ever read, and it’s one of my favorites. Anna Kavan is acclaimed as an experimental writer - comparisons to Djuna Barnes and Anais Nin, who tried to start an epistolary correspondence with Kavan, are frequent - but history seems to have forgotten her. As it is, there aren’t too many women in the canon of earlier twentieth century experimental literature; I think Kavan deserves wider recognition.

An unearthly whiteness began to bloom on the hedges. I passed a gap and glanced through. For a moment, my lights picked out like searchlights the girl’s naked body, slight as a child’s ivory white against the dead white of the snow, her hair bright as spun glass. She did not look in my direction. Motionless, she kept her eyes fixed on the walls moving slowly towards her, a glassy, glittering circle of solid ice, of which she was the centre. Dazzling flashes came from the ice-cliffs far over her head; below, the the outermost fringes of ice had already reached her, immobilized her, set hard as concrete over her feet and ankles. I watched the ice climb higher, covering knees and thighs, saw her mouth open, a black hole in the white face, heard her thin, agonized scream. I felt no pity for her. On the contrary, I derived an indescribable pleasure from seeing her suffer. I disapproved of my own callousness, but there it was. Various factors had combined to produce it, though they were not extenuating circumstances.
