Download Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Péter Esterházy Péter Esterházy ✓ 6 characters review Harmonia Caelestis Harmonia Caelestis is the product of a decade of labour a monumental part autobiographical family history If Helping Verbs of the Heart was an homage to his mother then this is a memorial to his father It is actually two works in one Book 1 Numbered Sentences from the Life of the Esterházy Family comprises 371 paragraphs some elusively succinct others pages long that amount to a gloriously kaleidoscopic romp through the centuries that lie behind this European dynasty Not that the name Esterházy is ever uttered the main protagonist of each episode is invariably identified as my father whether he is an anti Habsburg Kuruc insurrectionist or a Habsburg loyal Labanc a hammer of the Ottomans a dying old man a prisoner of war a lord charming enough to enchant Goethe himself or a childless man to mention but a few of my fathers all evoked through the language and literature proper to each persona This strategy of anonymity allows Esterházy to extend his typically vast net of uotations to sources that originally have no family connotations whatsoever thereby lending broader significance to the particulars of this one family however grand and vice versa appropriating the general European experienc. Celestial Harmonies 1990 All the world s a stage art and pageantry in the Renaissance and baroueEspecially in its first part reading Celestial Harmonies is like reading snippets from the life of demi gods up there in Mount Olympus The first person fragmented narrative goes anywhere you don t know what the narrator will tell you next It could be the chandelier the contents of the treasure drawer how much does the king father loves his mother or his mistress how the king father searches for his God how does the father compare to God etc There are some bright and shining amusing and amazing portions but there are also those that a mortal reader like me does not know anything about and just made me feel clueless or even bored Wiki helped once in a while but there are just some parts that only maybe Hungarian readers know or can appreciate The book is thick 880 pages and heavy first class glossy paper with hardbound cover Reading it for straight two whole days last weekend should have been an agony for my rheumatic hands but I persisted Reason I could not help but read because the life of this former Austro Hungarian monarchy the Ezterhazys was just amazingly interesting It is like being there and watching how a royal popular and respected European family fell down from their Mt Olympus with even a member dying along the way because they were so poor However this book is not a tearjerker The narration is strange I think Peter Esterhazy born 1950 a scion of the family who is now a mathematician novelist and a freelance writer did not write this novel to solicit sympathy For me this book just wants to show us how anybody who are rich and famous now could one day find themselves as poor as rats in the gutters But Esterhazy did not at least in this book compare his father with the biblical character Job although his father has deep faith in God and that this faith permeates as the underlying theme of this book Esterhazy also did not put blame on anybody or anything in particular that led to his family s downfall He just tells the story just how it happened but he did not write it like a history book but metaphorically in a magical realism kind of way If a book has a gender this is definitely a very manly book It centers on fathers Esterhazy used the word father not only in reference to God the father and his biological king father but also his grandfather or the father s grandfather uncles older brothers or any father for that matter Particularly in the first part of the book readers must decipher whose the father being referred to in some of the portions It did not put me off because of Esterhazy s brilliant play of words you just interpret his words for yourself Suit it in any way you want the outcome is still fascinating if not outright amazing especially when in the end the fragmented narrations fall into their right pieces of the Esterhazy s long and arduous history as a familyThe second part provides a focused approach as it details the occupation of Hungary by communist followed by World War II and the eventual takeover of the Soviet Union So when you finally close the book the anchored and definitive second half seems to be enhanced by the fragments of the first part It like when you clean your leather shoes If you just brush it without applying shoe polish it feels like that when you are reading the second part But as afterthought if you apply some shoe polish the shoes shine brighter But Esterhazy s style makes it unbelievably interesting because of the seuence the shine comes first before the shoes For me this speaks well of how bright a novelist Esterhazy is
