ve been catching up on the work of Andr Aciman The great memoir and three of the novels Started a fourth Eight White Nights earlier this week I also found my new copy of Michael Sells book Mystical Languages of Unsaying I had read some of the authors under discussion I had not realized that The 150 year period from the mid twelfth to the beginning of the fourteenth century constitutes the flowering of apophatic mysticism Almost simultaneously the apophatic masterpieces of the Islamic Jewish and Christian traditions appeared Such a short intense cross cultural or intercultural period It made me wonder about apophatic forms of expression in our time I googled apophatic novel and up came of course the books by Charles Williams The Greater Trumps Shadows of Ecstasy War in Heaven The Descent of the Dove I had read those years ago but had forgotten them I have long privately thought of Beckett s works as explorations in negative theology I suppose there are many dissertations on the topic by now I would read Pessoa s The Book of Disuiet this way Day or so later I picked up a book of Aciman s prose pieces A different voice in these than in the novels and it is the voice in the fictions that I love best But in the first few essays in False Papers I began to see how clearly Aciman is an apophatic writer Exile and Memory are in the subtitle and these words Aciman repeats endlessly in marvelously woven intricacies But it is desire longing that everything he talks about serves And look at these passages It was my way of preempting tomorrow s worries by making tomorrow seem yesterday of warding off adversity by warding off happiness as well In the end I learned not to enjoy going to Paris or even to enjoy being there because I enjoyed it too much The Paris I cultivated was a Paris one need not stay too long in It was a Paris made to be yearned for and remembered a Paris of the mind a Paris which stood for the true life the life done over the better life the one flooded in limelight with tinsel soundtrack and costume I had long ago learned to prefer the imagined encounter or the memory of the imagined encounter to the thing itself This is the basic pattern of all of Aciman s writing a saying and then an unsaying In Sell s words apophsis cannot help but posit a thing or being a being it must then unsay while positing yet entities that must be unsaid in turn Aciman s characters love and then lose and learn to unlove whether a place like Alexandria or Paris or a person like Oliver who his love Elio asks to call him by his name Eight White Nights would be a great title for a mystical work like The Cloud of Unknowing what I was feeling was not just admiration The word worship as in I could worship people like her hadn t crossed my mind yet though later that evening which I stood with her watching a glowing moonlight barge moored across the white Hudson I did turn to worship Because placid winterscapes lift up the soul and bring down our guard Because part of me was already venturing into an amorphous terrain in which a word here a word there any word really is all we have to hold on to before surrendering to a will far mightier than our own my emphasisI suppose there are already many dissertations in a university libraries on the apophatic tradition in Modernist and Post Modernist literature Aciman is certainly our principal

Free read Ç eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ André Aciman André Aciman ´ 7 Download Read Eight White Nights A LUSHLY ROMANTIC NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF CALL ME BY YOUR NAMEEight White Nights is an unforgettable journey through that enchanted terrain where passion and fear and the sheer craving to ask for love and to show love can forever alter who we are A man in his late twenties goes to a large Christmas party in Manhattan where a woman introduces herself with three words I am Clara Over the following seven days they meet every evening. I finished this book on an airplane and I cried I recall once years ago finishing something on an airplane and crying It was John Barth s Chimera and when the suit next to me looked at me oddly all I could do was mumble It was so beautiful So to forestall committing a spoiler I want say I did not cry because the end was unhappy or happy but because it was so emotional for me Which brings us to the characters The book recounts the relations between a 20 something going on 14 couple from their meeting on Christmas Eve to New Years Eve in wintery New York mostly on the upper west side around 106th St Like Aciman s previous novel Call Me By Your Name it is about the relation between passion and the development of a sense of self They are intelligent and educated Scattered literary and musical allusions are primarily important to the couple but not to the reader the reverse of the practice in some modernist novels say Ulysses The connection with Dostoyevsky s story Four White Nights is a little complicated and I can t explain it without spoilers but I suggest you read it first They travel in affluent circles if they are not affluent themselves They are Jewish passionate and neurotic More than once I thought of giving up in disgust at heir self defeating maneuvers You want shake them and say Come on get it on or get over it One thing that helped me hang with them was knowing that Aciman is a noted Proust scholar and recalling that the neurotic obsessions of Swann and Marcel are ultimately meaningful The sketches of several minor characters are full bodied and engaging particularly of the POV s parents and of an old couple that serve as surrogate family to the heroine The couple bond among many other ways by mutually caricaturing other characters except the parental figures in a self centered and even mean spirited way as people trying to define themselves often do The dialogue is terrific some of it might have wandered in from Oscar Wild They develop between them not a special language but again as people defining themselves by love do an important special vocabulary I happen to have once lived in that neighborhood and evocation of New York is intense and winning The writing is terrific particularly the POV s elouent and insightful self regard no matter how neurotic No one wants to compare to Proust but like Marcel this unwise young man sueezes out a lot of wisdom elouently
