I rather liked the character, Kien. Leslie rated it it was ok Jun 09, Apart from Iris Murdoch, Canetti had other girlfriends, often concurrently it would seem, and he clearly enjoyed female company. He seems to have been loyal to them, though clearly not faithful, and the creative influences are by no means all one way.

He wrote it in the early s, working presumably from contemporary notes now under lock and key in the Zurich Zentralbibliothek, largely dictating to his year-old daughter. Share your thoughts with other customers. When Elias Canetti, Nobel Prize winner, died in August at 89, he stipulated in his will that his papers could not be seen for 30 years.

In a few parts this is well done – Canetti manages to show the lunacy of his characters in an original manner, where I was delighted by the flow of the prose. If you had to think of a comparable writer, Kafka would come to mind. The novel’s hatefulness was not within its author, as readers to this day sometimes assume, but in the world out there whose folly he diagnosed.


He wanted to know, at once: Yet it seems that for all his alleged attempts at control, she used him just as much. Teacher too, and inspiration. Iris’s one-time lover, tyrant, dominator and master. Mr Milburn at least shared a passion for books.

The story progresses through various stages of misery for Kien until he is eventually forced out of the house. This casts in a new light those controlling and sexually alluring Magi-figures who stand canefti the centre of some of Murdoch’s novels and who Canetti is said to have inspired.

So I slogged through this and felt like it took forever. He finally hires a woman, Therese, as a maid to give her a try.

Die Blendung

As a whole, reading Auto da Fe was a frustrating and – for long stretches – frankly tedious experience. John Bayley recalls how Canetti, rarely given to false modesty, compared its effect on readers to that of King Lear.

Makes Kafka seem like a laugh riot. I am not impressed, and certainly – not entertained. He also spends a lot of time in the head of his characters, both detailing dreams which I hate in a novel, it seems like a silly trick most of the time and thoughts. Canetti, as eliqs called him, and his wife Veza lived in proud and not-so-genteel poverty after arriving from Nazi-run Vienna in the aftermath of the Kristallnacht in January Canetti ultimately created an oeuvre that is more individualist, more eccentric perhaps, in some ways more original, than that of any of the other great 20th-century modernists from central Europe.

For me, there was just not very much to like about this. It just made the novel even more unreadable for my part.

I suppose they are meant to be, you aren’t really supposed to feel sympathy for any of them, so that worked, I guess. Soon bblendung had the creature stark naked on the ground, a miserable fleck of fraudulent slime, not an animal at all.

I was flagged, I guess quoting from an article is a no-no according to GoodReads, so you will have to go to the link to read it yourself, which is sad because I don’t think many people will look at the link and the quote was really entertaining. Manipulated by his illiterate and grasping housekeeper, Therese, who has tricked him into marriage, and Benedikt Pfaff, a brutish concierge, Kien is forced out of his apartment – which houses his great library and one true passion – and into the underworld of the city.

The great all-knowing Dichter. According to her biographer, Peter Conradi, the blejdung of Hampstead” “represented the artist-as-manipulative-and-sadistic-mythomaniac” in her imagination and was a cruel and controlling lover, who dominated a coterie of enthralled “disciples” and mistresses, which is a role he re-enacts in several of Murdoch’s early dlias – she dedicated her second, The Flight from the Enchanterto him.
