The Memory Chalet - gebrauchtes Buch

1968, ISBN: 9781594202896

ID: 10390896

""It might be thought the height of poor taste to ascribe good fortune to a healthy man with a young family struck down at the age of sixty by an incurable degenerative disorder from which he must shortly die. But there is more than one sort of luck. To fall prey to a motor neuron disease is surely to have offended the Gods at some point, and there is nothing more to be said. But if you must suffer thus, better to have a well-stocked head..." -TJ " One of our leading historians, Tony Judt has written extensively about the twentieth century in the bestselling "Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945, Ill Fares the Land," and "Reappraisals: Reflections on the Forgotten Twentieth Century." A master of historical analysis forced into nights of motionless contemplation, Judt discovered the depths of his own memory. Bolstered by his fierce intelligence and decades of scholarship, childhood sights and sounds grew to take on vast new meanings. "The Memory Chalet" is a memoir unlike any you have ever read before. Each essay charts some experience or remembrance of the past through the sieve of Judt's prodigious mind. His youthful love of a particular London bus route evolves into a reflection on public civility and interwar urban planning. Memories of the 1968 student riots of Paris meander through the divergent sex politics of Europe, before collapsing into the certainty that his generation 'was a revolutionary generation, but missed the revolution.' A series of roadtrips across America lead not just to an appreciation of American history, but to an eventual change in citizenship. Foods and trains and long-lost smells all compete for Judt's attention; but for us, he has forced his reflections into an iron-hard arc of analysis. All as simply and beautifully arranged as a Swiss chalet-an unchanging refuge, lost in the mountains of memory. The Memory Chalet Judt, Tony, Penguin Press

The Memory Chalet - gebrauchtes Buch

2010

ISBN: 1594202893

ID: 5902363

Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2010: In 2008 Tony Judt, the historian and essayist whose book Postwar was quickly recognized as one of the landmark works of our time, was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. He was soon almost fully paralyzed, but before his death in the summer of 2010 he managed to produce not only two works of political and intellectual history, Ill Fares the Land and the upcoming Thinking the Twentieth Century, but also a series of short essays that had a breathtaking reception when they appeared, a few at a time, in the New York Review of Books. The pieces were remarkable both for their content and their method of composition: isolated at night in the prison of his paralysis, Judt would sort through his memories, arranging them, to better remember them, in the "rooms" of a Swiss chalet he recalled from an idyllic childhood visit, before dictating them in the morning to be published. The essays are at times political but always personal, calling up memories of food, youth, sex, education, train travel, and other subjects with a clarity and intensity born of both his historian's skills of observation and judgment and the heightened awareness of time's passage imposed by his undeniable mortality. Collected now in The Memory Chalet, these reflections make up a memoir that evokes, with clear-eyed passion, the life of the mind, as well as the body. --Tom Nissley biographies,historical study and educational resources,historiography,history,memoirs Biographies, Penguin Press
