Coetzee – Meisterhaft und überraschend erzählt der Nobelpreisträger J MCoetzee in seinem ersten Roman seit dem Welterfolg »Schande« von der Liebe im Zeichen der Reife Paul Rayments Leben ist aus den Fugen MeisDer Liebe im Zeichen der Reife Paul Rayments Leben ist aus den Fugen geraten als sich Elizabeth Costello unverhofft bei ihm einnist. What I love about Coetzee is that he isn’t afraid of fitting a tire over the goat’s torso As I’m reading the reviews of this book from my other Goodreads buddies many seem disturbed by the character Elizabeth Costello who truly breaks with logic and knows impossible details of characters In other words she is a meta character who speechifies some of the arguments and uestions I’m sure Coetzee had in writing this book and in the hands of a post modernist dilettante this character would have simply been self indulgence an intellectual exercise that proves how smart and well read the writer is But Coetzee uses this character in a much dazzling and unsettling way the same way Beckett uses his characters to inch closer to the terrors of black nothing EC can’t be dismissed as a “meta character” because she materializes with the same fullness as any other character in the book Coetzee puts in work to give her the same physical gestures and sensory life of Paul Rayment You don't uite know how to receive this woman You empathize with her you hear her rattling cough but you also know she’s mannered overly handled by The Author This makes you examine the idea of “character” and you realize there are only slight differences at least in theory between EC and the rest of the gang I felt wonderfully weird reading this book In The Life and Times of Michael K Coetzee pulls a similar move in breaking the symmetry of the book using a 1st person narrative that recounts the first ¾’s of the book told in 3rd person This move itself wasn’t what disturbed the reader It was the position of this move about 34's into the book Huh Cynthia Ozik considered this the only flaw in the book but maybe I just see flaws as artistic necessities What are we trying to do make the perfect reproduction of the world Or are we trying to bend light and distort so that the world can experience what the artist sees I loved this book

Et Seinen Reflexionen stellt sie Lebenspraxis entgegen seiner Radikalität liebevollen Spott Doch um Rettung ist es ihm nicht zu tu. The blow catches him from the right sharp and surprising and painful like a bolt of electricity lifting him up off the bicycle Paul Rayment a photographer in Adelaide finds himself in a hospital recovering from a bicycle accident with one leg amputated above the knee He refuses a prosthesis and opts for nursing care After going through a succession of nurses he develops feelings for a Croatian nurse Marijana a married woman with three children In addition to his loss of independence and the problems of aging Paul is coping with loneliness and regrets over never having children He attempts to have Marijana and her children play a major part of his lifeThe first third of the novel seems realistic Then the novelist Elizabeth Costello shows up at Paul's door an annoying woman who he has never met She is a character from JM Coetzee's previous novel She starts reciting the passage at the top of this review The blow catches him When she first heard those words she had asked herself Why do I need this man Elizabeth Costello seems to be a stand in for the author Coetzee since she knows all about Paul and the other characters She uses her knowledge to try to prod Paul into action At the same time Paul is feeling that she is using his reactions to create a character for a book that she is writing She's a persistent woman constantly visiting although he keeps trying to get rid of her Paul who immigrated from France to Australia as a child is working through his feelings about home about belonging and about love After a career as a portrait photographer Paul seems to be thinking about who the man in his own mirror is as a personThe reader is watching Elizabeth Costello interact with Paul as she gets material for the story that Coetzee has written and we are reading While it's a creative idea it also moves the story from a realistic plane to a position where the reader no longer knows what is real and what is unreal But that's Coetzee an author who has fun playing around with the readers' minds
