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

Blaise Cendrars í 8 characters

At once truly appalling and appallingly funny Blaise Cendrars's Moravagine bears comparison with Naked Lunch except that it's a lot entertaining to read Heir to an immense aristocratic fortune mental and physical mutant Moravagine is a monster a man in pursuit of a theorem that will justify his every desire Released from In the beginning was the rhythm and only eventually the rhythm gained corporealityBlaise Cendrars boldly bases his novel on the concept of Alfred Jarry s pataphysicsHysteria Freud had taken up the problem had gone into it amply profoundly had lifted it extracted it from its purely experimental and clinical domain to make of it a kind of pataphysics of social religious and artistic pathologyBlaise Cendrars doesn t write he literally crochets a morbidly pathological lace of maleficent wordsDiseases are We do not make or unmake them at will We are not their masters They make us they form us They may even have created us They belong to that state of activity which we call life They may be its main activityMoravagine is a uintessence of villainy he is an incarnation of mental pathology he becomes a metaphor of evil Evil is indestructible and sinister pataphysics reignsAnd what about metaphysics Metaphysics should be placed in the museum of folklore Reductio ad absurdum is a part of human nature

    If you only read one book this year about a diminutive gimp who enjoys disemboweling women make it this one It will at least save you the bother of having to find another one And there's certainly no book uite like Blaise Cendrars' Moravagine a tonally irregular provocative artifact of the 1920s French avant garde But don't be scared off by the phrase 'French avant garde' and its omens of obfuscation and aesthetic prickliness Moravagine is

    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

    Moravagine is one huge masturbatory celebration Cendrars’ personal exorcism into born again apogee I think Cendrars woke

  9. says:

    I couldn't decide whether to give this 3 stars or 4 stars not that anyone would care either way Cendrars seems to have hated this book having begun it in 1917 he was still trying to finish it as he crossed the Euator on a boat to Rio in 1924 He simply couldn't stand the turgid pretentious style to which he had
