No description available, i Jelena ena koje nema i i Jelena a Woman Who s Not Here i belongs to the inter war period It is the expression of an abstract idea in concrete terms suggesting the force with which quite abstract notions and vague impressions can impose themselves on the imagination demanding to be recognized as no less real than reality br This is the story about disappearing woman a story which in other contexts has seemed puzzling if not downright insubstantial but which is greatly improved by being viewed as an allegory of the life of art Jelena like Eurydice is a supremely beautiful woman but the narrator does not live for her illusory visits because he desires her but because life itself is transformed when she arrives Life is infinitely rich and significant in her presence and he is happy with no cause without her he despairs in a wasteland of insignificance She is really all the artist s nighttime visions contained in a single figure and she is gloriously beautiful than anything that could actually exist The narrator concedes from the start that she is only an illusion but this is a fact he has recovered from like an illness you only catch once in a lifetime and his whole imaginative efforts is to glimpse the illusion as often as possible to win his Eurydice again and again over the threshold between dreams and realities Orpheus must continually expect her or she will never come She is always and only the product of the artist s lyre As such she is immortal for art is immortal but if he views her as daylight reality she slips back over the threshold and becomes part of that world of transience where Hades has entire dominion, Ex Ponto je knjiga stihova u prozi koju je napisao Ivo Andri godine U ovom ranom Andri evom delu nazvanom razgovorom s du om Niko Bartulovi stilizovano je li no iskustvo u nastojanju da mu se u lirskoj sentenci pridoda zna enje filozofsko poetske istine a da pritom zadr i fabulativno narativnu osnovu na osnovu koje bi se mogla rekonstruisati stanja jednog zato enika br br Ova knjiga pesama u prozi razvrstana je u tri ciklusa prvi ima drugi a tre i tekstova uz zavr ni Epilog br br U strasnom lirskom monologu pesnik se obra unava sa sobom poku ava da u tamni kim bdenjima razre i unutra nju dramu i oslobodi se traume izazvane utamni enjem Nepravedan pad iza re etaka u drugi surov i mu an svet gde je rtva na suvom ukletom sprudu dovodi pesnika u stanje da postavlja va na egzistencijlna pitanja i grozni avo razmi lja o svetu i mestu pojedinca u njegovim tragi nim okvirima, Gospo ica The Woman from Sarajevo by Andri was originally published in and is one of the three novels that make up the Bosnian Trilogy The other two are Bosnian Chronicle and The Bridge on the Drina br br The novel is set in the cities of Sarajevo and Belgrade during the first three decades of this century The places and time are not incidentally chosen Ivo Andri is from Bosnia and knows the people and their problems in this unique area The theme and composition suggest a work of modern classicism It is the tragic life of a woman disappointed in people and in the world she lives in She is completely enslaved by money in which she hopes to find security and revenge in a hateful and insecure world At the same time she is literally and feverishly following her bankrupt father s last plea as she becomes not only thrifty but a real miser in a classical Gogolian style br br This novel is dominated by a single character a spinster named Miss Raika Radakovi who is dominated by a single passion stinginess The development of this passion is traced through the first third of this century from the time Miss Raika s dying father a ruined merchant solemnly enjoins his school girl daughter to guard with her life the little property he can leave her until some thirty five years later when she herself dies a scrawny old woman unloved and unlovable but faithful to her trust As a moneylender she parlays small insurance legacy after her father into a small fortune But whatever her wealth at any time she will spend none of it on herself For this single minded greed for money she puts everything else out of her life love friendship concern for other people br br Raika also speculates in currencies during the tumultuous years of the Austro Hungarian Empire and the uncertain emergence of the new Yugoslav state A good deal of the power of Andri s tale comes through the depiction of this seething historical background in whose torrent the wretched Raika s life is washed along like a piece of flotsam br br The novel is carefully thought out and fully imagined with solid passages of description in the nineteenth century manner and scrupulous attentions to the job of relating the individual life to the broader pattern of social and economical change With brilliant economy Andri sketches the stages through which Miss Raika hoards and increases her inheritance Sarajevo in the era of provincial usury the economic upheavals and disintegration of the First World War staid Belgrade headily embarking on the jazz age when the war is over the pinched depression years during which Miss Raika dies The requisite drama the testing of the ruling passion is present in the form of a young man whose physical resemblance to a beloved uncle long dead touches Miss Raika s heart enough to make her swerve though only momentarily from her objective of never parting with her money br br The chronicle is Andri s favorite form and this novel is no exception a highly poetic form depicting the past and the present in a meticulous artistic and philosophical manner Detailed historical analysis serves as a chain and always gives a basis for philosophical interpretation
