Many thanks to the New York Review of Books for letting me read this book ahead of its publication in exchange for an honest reviewAs a historical document and personal testimony I think this text has enormous value but I m not so sure it stands on its own as a piece of literature I don t know if the writing s constant choppiness and abruptness is due to the translation or the fact that this piece of writing is a personal journal that was never kept for publication but the overall effect is one of detachment and distance that ultimately suashes any possibility for real emotional power It may have also been a uestion of authorial voice and editing I could never fully immerse myself into the narrative flow being constantly pulled in and out of the account because of the style and the author s own ambivalence towards his surroundings In the end the text was oddly grating when it should have been moving and absorbingThere must be much powerful and evocative accounts of the early days of World War I and the burning of a world that loses all its familiar marks

Read ✓ The Burning of the World ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Alized the end of a way of life of a whole worldPublished here for the first time in any language this extraordinary reminiscence is a deeply moving addition to the literature of the terrible war that defined the shape of the twentieth century. In this memoir of the first eight months of World War I the author a Hungarian painter from the educated classes called up to be an officer in the Austro Hungarian army moves from guarded optimism over the outcome of the war to a resigned pessimism after being nearly killed in one of the first battles He sees countless casualties gets injured and sent home to recuperate and then wanders around the countryside as he tries to heal so he can return to active dutyThe prose is elegiac for a world crumbling around him Zombory Moldovan the author succinctly notes the swiftly changing mood of a populace promised easy and uick victory only to succumb to the realities of modern warfare As an artist he is particularly sensitive and attuned to things he may never see again to people s emotions and actions and his own mortality Never slipping into morbidity he gives the reader a rather bleak picture of his future and that of the Austro Hungarian EmpireZombory Moldovan never finished his memoir and became a non entity during the years of Communism It s a wistful and almost sad affair this memoir but touchingly beautiful causing me to tear up on a few occasions The translation by his English grandson is lucid and flowing Worth reading to get the viewpoint from an officer of the Central Powers
