review Il castello dei destini incrociati Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Rola si ritrovano in un castello L'unico mezzo che hanno per comunicare è rappresenta. I always feel the need to alternate one type of writing with another completely different to begin writing again as if I had never written anything before And thus ends Italo Calvino s The Castle of Crossed Destinies There are times when I forget just how much I love Calvino s writing This is a very short book but one that reuires intense concentration to read in fact it reuires intense concentration right up until the point where you realise that you simply aren t smart enough to get this book in its full and breathtaking complexity That moment for me was page 38 in the Picador version that I own at least that is the moment I truly knew that there are depths to this book I have no hope of ever being able to plumb Not unlike trying to read Kant s various categories in the Critiue and also finding myself lost in a mind infinitely logical than mine can ever hope to be I read this book with mouth gaping awe As TS Eliot put it il miglior fabbro the better craftsmanNow that I ve probably put you off reading this book let me see if I can make you want to read itA man is lost in the forest after a long dangerous and arduous journey In the distance as it is getting dark he sees a castle He makes his way there and is shown into a room where a great number of other people are already seated and eating and drinking He joins them and is about to begin talking when he discovers that he has no power of speech at all This surprises him but in watching the others at the table he soon discovers that they too have lost the ability to speakWhen the food and wine are cleared away all that is left on the table is a pack of tarot cards One of the guests flips through the pack and then selects cards with careful deliberation and sets them down in two rows These cards and the manner in which they are placed on the table tell his story Another guest then begins his story also by laying down cards on the table this time crossing the two rows with two columns In this way elements of the first story are reused in the second story In the end there is an enormous spread of cards across the table in which twelve interlaced stories are told The stories can be read up and down or down and up or right to left or left to rightTarot cards have a symbolic meaning obviously enough but that meaning depends in these stories on the card s position it appears within the story itself and on the story that is being told as much as on the image depicted on the face of the card So that the two of clubs a card with two wooden clubs crossed on its face can mean two paths intersecting or it can mean the beginning of a battleThis is a book that does what poetry does it weaves meaning out of images while at the same time referring to the history of poetry or literature as a way to give those images additional context and content I don t know how familiar you might be with TS Eliot s The Waste Land but basically it does much the same thing taking lots of lines from European poetry and literature and smashing them so as to play with the shattered pieces scattered across the floor In that poem there is a fortune teller with a wicked pack of cards called Madame Sosostris It would be hard to be too surprised that she might make an appearance in this book as wellMy Good Reads friend Paul did this review of this book And while I can understand his frustration this book is much better than he might make you think I do understand that someone might think it is all a huge wank or a drunken bet gone horribly wrong but I can only accept that until you get to I Also Try to Tell My Tale from that moment on this book becomes something completely different from what you might have imagined it was going to be I wouldn t mind betting if I was a betting man that Paul stopped out of frustration before this part of the book on the basis that he had worked out where this one was goingFrom then on until the very last breath of this book it becomes something else something that justifies any incomprehension or difficulty that might have troubled you up until this point Let s be completely frank here if you are not about to pull your hair out by the time you get to this point in the book you have completely missed the point of the book and need to cut back on the drugs you are taking they are uite obviously not doing you any favours at allBut from the moment the King of Clubs from the Ancien Tarot de Marseille is dropped onto the table you will find it virtually impossible to stop reading The descriptions of St Jerome and St George which has you saying oh so that is what that stuff meant and then the three tales of madness where Hamlet MacBeth and King Lear are smashed together are so mind blowingly well written and so damn clever and so insightful that it makes you come away thinking you have at least a vague idea of why people waste uite so much time reading this Literature rubbish in the first placeYou know you really could see this book as some sort of post modern wank of meta fiction the sort of book one might read at University for forty five years followed by a PhD thesis explaining the connections between the Oedipus myth and the sorts of fairytales that Calvino himself documents in his Italian Folk Tales and of course the ever present and potent images found in the humble tarot pack BUT this is a book based on the real obsession of the author a writer who decided one day to see if he could make patterns out of rows of tarot cards so as to literally use them to tell stories and to then see if he could link those stories together and also somehow write them up in a way that complemented the sting of images he had produced on the table before him As he said he finally published the book in the hope of exorcising this obsession which was becoming all consuming Again I m not a betting man but I would put real money on my belief that publishing the book really didn t helpAnd for those of us who have spent a lifetime obsessed with choices every choice has its obverse that is to say a renunciation and so there is no difference between the act of choosing and the act of renouncing I would also be prepared to bet that Calvino liked to read Hegel You know perhaps I m of a gambler than I like to pretend
