    Laxness brings together a catalog of eccentric characters and peculiar anecdotes to tell the story of Algrimur, an orphan taken in by an elderly couple that becomes his only family in a tiny village in the outskirts of Reykyjav k In the turf cottage where Algrimur grows up, a disparate crew of extravagant guests gathers at night The impoverished farmers, fishermen and shepherds get transformed into vagrant soothsayers, quack philosophers, sea captains and specialists in cesspools, who sit by the fire to tell their life stories in an allegoric cannon of fiercely original voices.More than a delightful literary divertimento, The fish can sing offers a painfully accurate portrait of life and its hardships in a rural Iceland that is about to disappear engulfed by impending modernity The motley assortment of characters orchestrated by Algrimur, who writes his own story as an omniscient narrator, reveals the classic confrontation between two opposed conceptions of the world the yesteryear social structure, composed of hardened men, self sufficient in dignified poverty but with great c...

    The fish can sing just like a bird,And grazes on the moorland scree,While cattle in a lowing herdRoam the rolling sea.Starting from this Icelandic paradox put in verse, Halld r Laxness weaves an enchanting tale on the outskirts of Reykjav k, in a time when the price of a Bible was equal to that of a heifer and people still tried to cure headaches by smearing their faces with warm cow dung Some say that The Fish Can Sing is a coming of age novel, but I don t really see it that way it is the diary of a place, Brekkukot, and the portrait of a generation long gone, in a time when Reykjav k was just a bunch of houses inhabited by farmers and fishermen lfgr mur is an abandoned child who grows up at Brekkukot, surrounded by peculiar people and evening sessions of sagas and r mur His childhood revolves around Brekkukot, convinced, like the eminent Candide, that the world we live in is best at home He reminisces about a lot of things there a clock in whose ticking he discovered eternity, a window so s...

    Two years after being awarded the Nobel Prize, Laxness published this bildungsroman about the young Icelander lfgr mur whose coming of age at the beginning of the 20th century coincides with the advancement of capitalist modernity in Iceland Abandoned by his mother, lfgr mur grows up with loving fostergrandparents in a cottage named Brekkukot in Reykjavik the Icelandic original of the book is called The Annals of Brekkukot His fostergrandfather Bj rn works as a fisherman, never demanding money for his goods than he needs to survive, and lives values like integrity, humility and charity without making a show of it A recurring metaphor is the old clock in the living room at Brekkukot that chimes in harmony with the church bell, and that seems to tick a four syllable word with emphasis on alternate syllables Eternity But time passes At Brekkukot, Bj rn helps all kinds of people in turmoil, and large parts of the book deal with lfgr mur meeting Icelanders and some foreigners from all walks of life A central character is Gar ar H lm, who is allegedly a celebrated singer abroad and returns to Iceland several times is art a calling or a profession, is it about happiness or fame, is it about truth or beauty People have kept on asking me , lfgr mur recounts, did he sing well I reply, the world is a song, but we do not know wehether it s a good song be...

    Ao ler Laxness, ocorreu me v rias vezes a ideia de ter sido com ele que come ou a fic o islandesa Existiram outros antes, mas isso n o interessa agora A Isl ndia tem uma matriz liter ria moderna e aqui est ela.Seguimos a vida de Alfgrimur, desde a adop o pelos av s cuja viv ncia se faz da mais genu na e aut ntica fibra humana, at ao encontro com o homem real, por tr s do cantor de pera famoso Gar ar H lm Conhecemos Reiquejavique e Alfgrimur na inf ncia at adolesc ncia, passando por Brekkukot, a casa onde a bondade faz acolher qualquer um que precise de um tecto excepto b bados e o adro da igreja onde existe uma nota e pura De facto, a hist ria forma se de pequenos epis dios que poderiam ser lidos como contos, confluindo para uma ideia de crescimento e evolu o.A inoc ncia do personagem principal e narrador ganham o seu tom na ironia e coment rio social do autor Os Peixes Tamb m Sabem Cantar l se atrav s dos olhos do jovem narrador, criado na generosidade e abnega o, lan ado ao mundo governado pelo ego smo e ast cia Neste estilo, parece ganhar um registo ntimo e uma edifica o lenta, mas nobre onde muitos reconhecem o regresso ...

    A gentle comedy set in pre independence Iceland Alfgrimur is abandoned as a baby and is brought up in a run down shack on the outskirts of Reykjavik Passing through the house are a motley bunch of deadbeat lodgers and wacky characters Most intriguing of all is Gardar Holm, the son of a neighbour He is a local boy made good overseas as a world renowned singer or is he.Gardar flits in and out of the boys life during fleeting return trips home, almost but not quite giving a concert to his adoring home town One day the saga finally comes to a conclusion as a date for the big concert is set Unwittingly the boy is sucked into the maelstrom and his path for life is set.There is a sense of a country in transition as the old Iceland is changing, moving towards independ...

    This is the same book as, in the English version, is called The Fish Can SingThis is very possibly the best book ever written Forgive my fretting about translations, I didn t want people to miss a thing Then I realized that the books tone, that true tone, will reach through all human languages.The story is set in Reykjavik in the beginning of the 20th century These are reminiscences about a boyhood spent with an old couple who adopt this abandoned baby in the same manner they welcome several strange characters who end up living in their tiny turf house Beyond their home there is the burgeoning town with its Danish influenced pretensions, and there are the mysterious comings and goings of a relative of sorts, a purportedly world famous singer The sheer beauty and peculiarity of this life is caught with perfectly pitched humor and ...

    Loved the earlier part of the book, an Icelandic Cider with Rosie, not so much the latter That could have had something to do with struggling through the second half in the haze of a seemingly random, day long migraine like headache and aftermath I could see the story was good , but wasn t on board with its particular brand of bittersweet illusion shattering enterprise It s going to be easiest to discuss this after quoting the blurb Abandoned as a baby, lfgr mur is content to spend his days as a fisherman living in the turf cottage outside Reykjavik with the elderly couple he calls grandmother and grandfather There he shares the mid loft with a motley bunch of eccentrics and philosophers who find refuge in the simple respect for their fellow men that is the ethos at Brekkukot But the narrow horizons of lfgr mur s idyllic childhood are challenged when he starts school and meets Iceland s most famous singer, the mysterious Gar ar Holm Gar ar encourages him to aim for the one true note , but how can he attain it without leaving behind the world that he loves Rural idyll Household of eccentric, tolerant peo...

    N o exagerada a nota no fim do livro Laxness falece aos 96 anos, consagrado como um dos maiores escritores de sempre Entra, efectivamente, para o meu passeio da fama.O curioso ao ler Os peixes tamb m sabem cantar a sensa o de querer ler mais 10 livros assim Por momentos pensei na analogia com os sul americanos Laxness um romancista do mundo m gico s que vem do frio Mundo m gico ganha sentido nas descri es t o apuradas e intensas desse pa s que ningu m imagina a Isl ndia Das express es da gente e do simbolismo presente nesta maneira de falar e se uma pessoa estivesse mais morta que viva, dizia se Oh, est um bocado em baixo Se algu m estivesse a morrer devido idade avan ada, empregava se a seguinte frase Sim, tem comido menos nestes ltimos dias Acerca de algu m que estivesse no leito da morte, dizia se Sim, est a fazer as malas, o desgra ado De um jovem mortalmente doente, dizia se que n o parecia que viesse a ter alguma vez cabelos grisalhos para pentear Quando um casal se separava, usava se a seguinte frase Sim, acho que se passa algo de errado por ali esta a linguagem de lfgr mur um mi do que vai crescendo com a simplicidade de um desejo ser pescador de peixes lapa, como o av Mas o seu sonho vai sendo desviado pelo misterioso e famoso cantor o orgulho da Isl ndia Gar ar H lm o desvendar dos segredos des...
