One thought on “The Flanders Road

  1. MJ Nicholls

    Bailing out of this one at p82 Oneworld Classics is almost as impressive as Dalkey in bringing esoteric out of print novels back into the world Have a gander at their catalogue if such a thing impresses you I put the link up Be grateful, punk The Flanders Road is an important novel of the nouveau roman movement Mr Simon uses an atemporal third person narrative voice, narrating war horrors in a nightmarish stream of thought style, popular among Beckett and late period modernists For the contempor [...]

  2. Inderjit Sanghera

    Claude Simon s style reads like a combination of Faulkner and Proust the never ending shift of perspectives and time, the never ending paragraphs and sentences, The Flanders Road is as disorientating as it is beautiful, yet at times the disjointed nature of the prose and story, which is merely Simon s interpretation of time via his unique narrative style, takes away from the poetic prose style and psychologically harrowing recollection of the brutality of war Simon s prose is almost dream like a [...]

  3. Sean de la Rosa

    I got this off Wiki about the author Extreme use of long sentences often stretching across many pages and with parentheses sometimes interrupting a clause which is only completed pages later is reminiscent of Proust Simon was also majorly influenced by Faulkner in that he extensively uses a fractured timeline with frequent and disorienting moments of chronological discontinuity There is also acute use of free indirect speech in which narrative voices often unidentified and streams of consciousne [...]

    A true masterpiece, The Flanders Road was a big surprise to me, since it was fairly the first nouveau roman I read Some friends of mine had already read it, and their compliments motivated me to read it too but they had also advised me to read it when I have enough concentrated time to put on, like, for example, reading it in no than five sittings in some consecutive days When I found the right time for reading it after some 2 years, I found this advice very precious and rewarding The Flanders [...]

  6. Maurits van Rees

    Potentially an interesting intriguing intelligent subject about a death in May 1940 but the subject is lost behind a hard impossible confusing to read bundle conglomeration bunch of words that lack helpful necessary parts like interpunction commas and dots and the occasional blank line the writer wants to do interesting but fails to be interesting literary critics do not agree as he has won the Nobel prize for literature oh yes there are parentheses too ain t those fun where am I going with this [...]

  7. Mark Bell

    A masterpiece from the greatest of the nouveau roman novelists You almost experience the book than merely read it, so adept is Simon at conveying mental and sensual experience He looks at only a few episodes from different POVs, each POV giving rise to a slightly different style, like Raymond Queneau s Exercises in Style meets the funeral procession in Joyce s Ulysses His aim is to put you in the heads of his characters as they experience and remember the events in question, all circling around [...]

  8. Jerry Pogan

    Not my cup of tea I don t mind run on sentences as long as they re coherent, in fact I love Faulkner s, but these ran on for pages and meandered so much that I lost track of what he was talking about This was my second Simon book and will be my last.

  9. Sivoj

    J ai mis longtemps finir La route des Flandres je n ai pas aim le lire, mais j adore l avoir lu Il est tr s frustrant pour moi de ne pas tre arriv l appr cier plus, et m y investir plus, alors que ce roman est un des plus remarquables que j ai lu Il n y a pas vraiment d intrigue George revit, dans le d sordre, ses souvenirs de guerre obs d par la mort faussement accidentelle de son cousin loign , le capitaine de Reixach, il ressasse les conditions qui l ont men son suicide assist , le compare so [...]

    I struggled through the first chapter 78 pages.For me this is unreadable, and I gave up here.Lack of punctuation, lack of paragraphs and even formatting just make this unbearable So much over complicating of each sentence for absolutely no good reason that I can ascertain, and the ludicrous long sentences.Maybe in 10 years I will try again, but for now, this books holds the glory of being the only book on my DNF shelf.

  11. Lolo

    Je ne conteste pas l originalit , les qualit s d crivain, la recherche et l inventivit de l auteur, mais je n ai pas adh r au livre Un style tr s pesant que j ai ressenti parfois comme pompeux, une navigation p nible entre discussions, souvenirs, souvenirs de discussions, discussion sur des souvenirs, fantasmes et r alit J tais curieux de l uvre du prix Nobel Claude Simon un cadeau , mais ce n est pas pour moi, trop exp rimental

  12. Tomas Martin

    Inspired in linguistic shape and literary language by Marcel Proust, this could possibly be the most brilliant novel of the 20th century A difficult read first sentence takes up a page and a half without a single technical mistake such as falling into a run on sentence but pays off in its self conscious meta textual explanation of how narrative functions.

  13. Richard Vandine

    I am aware of the nouvelle roman movement I, however, found this book to be to disoriented for my taste I am also aware that that may well be the point, that he is trying to make sense of a senseless event, but it simply wasn t to my taste.

  14. Mahsa Emampour

    Did I enjoy reading it I have to be honest and say not really But, on the other hand, I don t regret reading it at all.

  15. Akura

    In deed, I cannot understand many of the meanings in the book,but books are like people, he maybe deep and inaccessible as well as great.

  16. Emma

    Ce livre aura eu le m rite de me confirmer que le Nouveau Roman, ce n tait d finitivement pas pour moi J aime trop la ponctuation, je pense.
