One thought on “Matryona's House And Other Stories”

  1. خانه ی ماتریونا، در یک کلام، شرح دشواری های دردناک زندگی است که آدمی را به تامل در باب مفهوم زندگی و غایت آدمی در این جهان وا می دارد.داستان، از بیان معلم از اردوگاه کار اجباری برگشته ی به دنبال آرامش ست. ساکن خانه ای روستایی می شود، که زندگی مشقت بار زنی ۶۰ ساله که از بسیاری از م [...]

  2. خانه ماتریونا داستان مردی که بعد از ده سال از زندان به خانه برگشته و به دنبال زندگی ساکت و بی دغدغه شغل معلمی را در یکی از دروترین مناطق روسیه پذیرفته و مستاجر زنی پیر و بیمار در کلبه ای محقر در میان جنگل شده است. ماتریونا فقیر, خانه درهم فروریخته, هم نشینان گربه ای افلیج و موش ها [...]

  3. Não me foi fácil atribuir as estrelas a este livro. Oscilei de 3 a 5. Estabeleci as 4, sentindo que numa segunda leitura poderia tanto dar-lhe 5 como 3. É um belíssimo livro, sem dúvida. Soljenítsin arquitecta as narrativas de modo interessante e algo invulgar. Tem um ritmo que talvez esteja mais próximo da peça de teatro. Os acontecimentos não se antecipam, nem se revelam como um todo, mas vão-se revelando. É esse o ritmo. A casa da Matriona é uma das belas novelas que li. O Inciden [...]

  4. قطار برای لحظاتی سرعتش را کم کرده، کند حرکت می‌کند و دوباره سرعتش را زیاد می‌کند، این داستان زندگی نویسنده، راوی، شخصیت اصلی و حتی خواننده است.

  5. I am still surprised that Solzhenitsyn was such a good writer. Of these two short novellas I particularly liked the first which out of very unpromising material weaves an elegant and moving story about the confused state of mind likely to have existed here and there in the Soviet Union in 1941. The country had been drawn into war and the novella sucessfully and interestingly dissects the thoughts of just one young man. However, through his work and circumstances we learn so much about confusion [...]

  6. Matryona's House is quite good and such a slow, leisurely story. The other stories in this collection share just a touch of a similar theme, just enough similarity to contribute to the commentary of Soviet Russia. It's a rich tapestry that Solzhenitsyn weaved together. I read only 1 of his Prose Poems at the end, so moving! So I'm going to leave them unread for a slower reading time. They'll be sweet when I re-read this later ^.^

  7. For some reason, I thought Russian authors were hard to read. Not so in this case. This is a surprisingly easy-to-read novella.A young man, first-person narrator of the story, released from prison, looking for work, eventually finds it in a village in the Russian province. There he lives as a tenant in the small house of Matrjona Vasilievna. The story deals with the two of them living together, about Matrjona's burdensome life and finally a tragedy. By the way, the story takes place starting in [...]

  8. خانه ی ماتریونا یک داستان کوتاه از زندگی پیرزنی هست که نماد خوبیهای فراموش شده از زندگی انسان هاست. او در بند ساختن زندگی نبود، دنبال آراستن سر و ظاهر نبود، دنبال لباسهای زیبا نبود او حتی شوهر و شش فرزندش را نیز از دست داده بود اما خوش اخلاقی اش را نه او که همیشه دنبال کار بی مزد [...]

  9. HELLO is this the dispatcher?UH?Who is this, Dyachikin?UH?Don't give me UH, I'm asking you, is this Dyachikhin.The old man smacked his thick pale lips and didn't answer right away - his words never came right away. It was as if they arrived limping on crutches from wherever they were born.

  10. آنها که بنا بر وجدان خود عمل میکنند همواره چهره ای نیکو دارند. این کتاب شرح دشواری های دردناک زندگی است که آدمی را به تامل در باب مفهوم زندگی و غایت آدمی در این جهان وا می دارد.

  11. Солженицын впервые открылся мне произведением "Один день Ивана Денисовича" и теперь накрепко влюбил в себя рассказом "Матрёнин двор". Для меня это - Ода чести гуманизма, человечности и одновременно грустная повесть о редкой чистоте души человека, о том самом "праведнике", "б [...]

  12. When I read this book I remember why I love Soljenitsin. His expressions and subject which were choosen by him are just adorable. About book; Both stories are cool but I especially amazed by "Matryona's House". Relations between russian villagers have remarkable determinations. I think Soljenitsin was tried to explain the concept of humanism through Matryona and I found it very impressive. Kitap 2 öyküden oluşuyor. İlki idealist bir sovyet vatandaşı olan Zotov'un gönüllü olarak orduya k [...]

  13. In der zweisprachigen Reclam-Reihe russischer Autoren bisher noch keinen Text gelesen, der nicht großartig war. Solschenizyn habe ich wegen seiner politischen Bedeutung nie als Schriftsteller wahrgenommen, das wird sich nach diesem Text ändern. Wie von einem wiederauferstandenen Tolstoi, eine sehr berührende, moderne Heiligenlegende aus dem tiefsten Rußland der 50er Jahre. "Aus staubiger, heißer Wüste", also wohl aus dem Lager, kehrt der Held "nach einer Zeit" nach Rußland zurück. Inzwis [...]

  14. A gem of a book that I found in a second hand bookstore. These were early stories before Solzhenitsyn became (in)famous with his later publications that landed him in jail. He captures the cold, greed, gridlock of Soviet-era bureacracy and the struggle for survival amidst deminished resources with dexterity. I had difficulty with some of his dialogue, as he refused to identify who was speaking (even when there were more than two people in the scene) and one had to make some intelligent guesses - [...]

  15. Soy un fan incondicional de solzhenitsyn, aunque este no es uno de sus mejores libros sí está muy en su línea habitual.

  16. اين همه devoted بودن ماتريونا منو عصباني ميكنه. من ماتريوناها رو دوست دارم ولي تحسينشون نميكنم.

  17. first of all, one of the most bad ass titles everrr. the first story, "an incident at kerchetovka station" follows lieutenant zotov. the short novel is only 60 pages and not very eventful. we meet zotov in october performing his rather mundane task of overseeing certain trains through the station. it's obvious we're in russia during wartimes against germany. as a lieutenant he's not supposed to know too much about which trains go where and which echelons do what. late one night 4 soldiers are se [...]

  18. The two novellas which make up this book were originally published in 1963, just after his highly acclaimed One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich (1962), which was one of the first fictional accounts about the repressive stalinist regime allowed publication in the Soviet Union. It is interesting to see how both novellas prefigure some of his later work.An Incident at Krechetova Station, while set during the second world war recalls the later August 1914. Its graphic but quiet depiction of the l [...]

  19. This book contains two stories.The first, "An Incident at Krechetovka Station," is a story (or vignette, really) concerning an apparatchik-type lieutenant, Zotov, whose paranoid fear of non-Communists leads him to almost certainly doom a man to a terrible fate. The action takes place in the space of one night, though it is frequently punctuated by the memories of Zotov, which serve to fill in the backstory and give context. He is an overzealous Party man, but not entirely unsympathetic; just mis [...]

  20. Contrary to what one might expect, I actually read "Matryona's House" for a History course, rather than a literature one. As a fan of Russian Literature, I've been meaning to read Solzhenitsyn for quite a long time now ("A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch" is sitting in my to-read pile, waiting for summer when I have free time). Overall, I found "Matryona's House" a worthwhile read, which manages to say a lot in its few pages. Though I usually prefer writers who employ a bit more description [...]

  21. اساسا شخصیت‌های پذیرنده، کم خواه و صلح‌جو چه در داستان‌ها و چه در دنیای واقعی برای من جذابیت چندانی ندارند. به خصوص در داستان‌ها دلم می‌خواهد آدم‌ها را معترض به شرایط بد و شجاع در ایستادگی در مقابل بی‌عدالتی‌ و زور ببینم. با این حال ماتریونای داستان سولژنیتسین چنان با مها [...]

  22. O meu texto sobre ”A Casa de Matriona” seguido de “Incidente na Estação de Kotchetovka” (Sextante) para o Diário Digital. Mais um grande livro deste autor russo.Espero que gostem.diariodigitalpo/newsp

  23. Beautifully written! Matriona is an old woman, who lives in a country town, she is kind, fair, and satisfied with her life, in spite of the simplicity of the routine. Ignatich is the new teacher of the school.een them a friendship is bornere is joy and sorrow! A touching story!

  24. Enjoyed this book no end.Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Russian literature or has enjoyed "A day in the life ".As these are nice and short they may be a good taster of Solzhenitsyn before tackling "June 1914" "Cancer Ward," or "the Gulag Archipelago."Enjoy!

  25. La casa di Matrjona è composto da due racconti, uno, omonimo, parla di un maestro che abita nella casa di Matrjona una vecchia russa; il secondo, alla stazione di Krectovka, parla di un giovane ufficiale russo nella II guerra mondiale.

  26. كتاب دردناكه. ماتريونا اگر روسيه اصيل باشه به نظرم نويسنده داره بهش اعتراض مى كنه كه چرا سرنوشتش رو با دستاى خودش داد دست يه مشت حريص و انتقامجو.

  27. This is a book of two powerful, and unforgettable, novellas - linked by the theme of trains. The works feature two protagonists who are similar in their adjustment or devotion to the "idealism" of the communism, when Russia was part of the USSR. In the first novella, a dedicated railroad worker during the war is also in the military, and feels disappointed that he is not at the front but is instead keeping track of train shipments of material and soldiers to the front. We learn about his life an [...]

  28. Kitabın içinde iki hikaye vardı. İlk hikaye Kreçetovka İstasyonunda Bir Olay: İkinci Dünya Savaşı yıllarında savaşa katılmak için can atıp gözlwrindeki rahatsızlıktan dolayı istasyon şefliğine atanan teğmenin öyküsüydüfakat sonu Amerikan filmleri gibi bitti. Ağır giden öykü birden polisiye havaya bürünmüştü ki sonun ne olduğunu okuyucuya bıraktı. Yani sonu böyle olmasaydı daha iyi bir not alabilirdi benden. İkinci hikaye de Matriyona'nin Evi. Bu hikaye d [...]
