    Principiants de Raymond Carver (chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: "Beginners" is the version Carver submitted to his editor, Gordon Lish, under the author's title. Lish made significant cuts, changed character's names and removed dialogue to produce the version that made Carver's name: "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love".… (més)

When you read a paper looking for the book reviews, you turn to The Arts section. Sometimes it's even called The Arts & Style Section. Consequently, when you read a work of fiction, you expect some arts & style. Sadly,this collection of short stories has neither. I am at a complete loss as to why Carver has won so many awards, and is considered such an important and influential American writer. His writing is so stark and so simple. These stories could have been written by a High School student in an English Composition class. Now, most of Carver's characters lead stark and simple lives, so I can accept that he wants the writing to mirror the characters. But c'mon, give me a little bit of alliteration, a couple of similes, a few metaphors. That's not to much to ask for, is it ? ( )

I felt like I was there I will read it again and again. Never been to the Northwest but I have, feel like each character I feel like I've had the same moments in my life, the whole book is like a child watching their parents argue from the edge of the doorway. Had a new strategy with this short story collection because I read Strange Pilgrims too quickly: read one story in the morning, and at nigh, read the same story. Would recommend, good way to read collections thank you. ( )

Aquí están la atmósfera y los personajes de un autor que dominó indiscutiblemente el panorama literario norteamericano de los años ochenta del siglo XX. Parejas que se despedazan, compañeros que parten desesperadamente a la aventura, hijos que intentan comunicarse con sus padres, un universo injusto, violento, tenso, a veces irrisorio.

"I admit it's not much of a story." (pg. 112)

I was well-primed to explore and enjoy Raymond Carver's writing. I'm a big fan of the cool, clipped American style, the sort honed to perfection by Ernest Hemingway and his 'iceberg theory', and my interest in Carver was also piqued by the role the title story of What We Talk About When We Talk About Love played in the 2014 film Birdman. Unfortunately, my experience with Carver's most famous work was one of disappointment, flavourlessness and boredom.

Carver's prose is scraped to the bone and yet it also feels inflated. It has nothing really to say, and says it with a sort of brittleness, a halting walk far removed from the deft, confident stride and precision of other American 'iceberg' or hard-boiled writing. The prose says so little the reader has to work overtime just to find anything. Some of the commentaries and analyses I've read are shockingly obese, finding false genius in banal happenings. They're far more entertaining than Carver himself: an obvious metaphor is lauded as a keystone, a clumsily-recited list of household objects a totem representing all of human existence. If Carver had written "the cat sat on the mat", to these people it would no doubt symbolise the yearning of all living creatures to find some place where they could rest their burdens, always tragically aware that the mat is not fixed and that they must move on from their slumber at some indeterminate time.

There is a weak undercurrent simmering in some of the stories, but nothing remarkable. On this evidence, Carver has nothing to say as a writer: he's grasping at clichéd, cookie-cutter episodes of disaffected American suburbia to perform a few simple prose tricks. He presents abusive and repressed relationships, alcoholics, bores and philanderers – presents them, but doesn't have any insight into them, let alone resolution. The overwhelming feeling for this reader was of plainness, like eating a pack of ready-salted crisps and knowing just a dash of vinegar would go a long way. The only lesson of writing to be found here is that you can't have an iceberg in such shallow water. ( )

A wonderful collection of short stories!

Each story a stand-alone slice of life. Most of the books are about love, but also just being human. The author gets a lot done with each word - nothing extra and nothing missing.

I listened to the audio, which was wonderful. ( )

Carvers Meisterschaft liegt in der Auslassung, in der planvollen Konstruktion textueller Gebilde, die auf dem ersten Blick lediglich triviale oder banale Oberflächen abbilden, unter denen jedoch Tiefen oder Untiefen lauern, auf die der Leser kaum vorbereitet ist. Häufig schmuggelt Carver unmerklich Tretminen in die Texte, die zunächst wie kaum merkliche Beiläufigkeiten erscheinen und erst am Schluss ihre Sprengkraft offenbaren. Diese Technik verleiht den Geschichten Carvers eine verstörende Irritation, die das vie quotiedienne als unablässige Sequenz von Katastrophen erfahren lässt. Die Lektüre vermittelt den Eindruck, als ob man den Inhalt zwischen den Zeilen nicht erfasst habe. "Da war noch mehr an der Geschichte", resümiert einer von Carvers Protagonisten, "und sie versuchte, es sich ein für alle Mal von der Seele zu reden. Nach einiger Zeit gab sie den Versuch auf."
