    One thought on “Castle to Castle”

    1. and I lose an enemy or two every day cancer, apoplexy, gluttony it's a pleasure the number that pass on! I'm not hard to please a name! another!Coincidence rules. I just penned a lengthy (for me, anyway) treatment of how and why Celine should be approached. That was lost.The how converged his hysterical realism and penchant for splatter of adjective and detail. The why detailed his good faith account of the vanquished, how he understood the stakes of his ideological bent. Unfortunately, Celine i [...]

    2. "Né dans la tragédie, le regime de Vichy agonise dans un décor d'opérette." (Henry Rousso, Les années noires, on Sigmaringen)Stunning -- possibly the best of the three I've read so far (Journey, Mort.) - certainly there is none of the artificiality found in parts of the others - he is now merely a chronicler. and the events are profound -- Manheim's translation of Castle to Castle itself won a National Book Award (1970). The edition I had (an old yellow pocket sized Penguin) has a brief int [...]

    3. For me, this has got to be a review not just of this book but of all Celine. I've lived with Celine for what?, forty years now? or fifty? I don't know that there's anything of his I haven't read (in French), including the "banned" books. In the winter of 1976 I visited friends renting an apartment in Paris. The apartment came with the library of the lessor. Which included "Bagatelles pour un massacre" and "Les Beaux draps" and "L'Ecole des cadavres." I proceeded on entry to consume all of them. [...]

    4. being a vichy collaborator was pretty cool imo and he calls sartre "fartre", which i think is a legitimate criticism of him artistically as well as politicall. but its just my opinion man.

    5. “If Hitler fails, you won’t escape it!” Those were the words of a big intellectual: “Europe will be republican or Cossack!” Hell, it will be both! and Chinese!Sixty years after its original publication.There is no-one quite like him, and yet all who followed him owed him something. There’s no twentieth century writer more important than Céline. You don’t have to like him. He doesn’t want you to. But he should be read anyway, and much more widely than he is. He is the antithesis [...]

    6. سلین به وقت پیریسلین تو این کتاب خسته س از دست همه چیز و همه کس به همه معترضه بتندی اعتراض میکنه به جامعه ادبی فرانسه، بخصوص به سارتر که مورد عنایت خاص سلین قرار گرفته تو این کتاب، میخواد راحتش بذارن که این آخر عمری با آرامش سر کنه وضع مالی خوبی نداره، کتابهایی که بنا به سیاستها [...]

    7. Selin je tako brutalno realan a opet kao da sve sto govori prolazi kroz nekakvu prizmu fantasticnog. Stil pisanja je haotica a od opisa i poredjenja vam se prevrce stomak. Samo dok to citate znate da je sve bas tako, nista manje surovo nego sto on kaze. Matori je bio namcor, nema sta, samo razumeo je svet oko sebe. Razumeo ga je na jedan osvescujuc nacin.

    8. سگ ها خبرم می کنند. آمدن پستچی را از چند کیلومتری می فهمند. لیلی را از ایستگاه راه آهن بو می کشند. می فهمند کی از قطار پیاده می شودهیچ وقت هم اشتباه نمی کنند. همیشه خواسته ام سردر بیاورم که چه جوری میفهمند؟ میفهمند،همین! ما آدم ها سرمان را می کوبیم به دیوار، مشنگ ریاضی ایمانیشتین [...]

    9. کتاب این طور شروع می شود که سلین دارد از دست ناشرهایش غر میزند. دارد به شدت می نالد از زندگیش، از سختی هایی که به او رفته. همه ی ظلم هایی که به او شده، مثل سگ زندگی کردن، سرما کشیدن، متهم بودن، با احمق ها طرف بودن. همه ی کتاب های سلین همین است و همین طور هم ادامه پیدا می کنند تا تمام [...]

    10. The first of Celine's final trilogy set at the end of WWII, and the book that rescued Celine's reputation after a decade in the critical wilderness. Some have suggested this is his funniest book - there are certainly some hilarious episodes, but to me it pales next to Death on the Instalment Plan and Journey to the End of Night.But it is fascinating, partly because it is based on Celine's real experience in Sigmaringen, the small town in southern Germany where the Vichy French regime was put by [...]

    11. It is a kind of closed door. Imagine a concentration of routed French fascist, complained to cohabit in the same place. There is deep resentment and hatred. Celine does not stop complaining, of his living conditions, his absence of recognitionSuch an amount of hatred. He hold it everyone : Sartre (the flies 1943 with agreement of German censure) Aragon, Morand… He was undoubtedly less political skiled.All this little society lose theirself in reasoning, cry on their past glory. It's completely [...]

    12. Celine continues his journey as the war ends, trying to get out of France and then Germany, with ROLF results. It is absolutely a must read for Celine fans!

    13. (Dovrei chiedermi, in primo luogo, che cosa ho letto, visto che nell’introduzione Gianni Celati scrive che lo stile céliniano «dà alle forme argotiche [le parlate popolari] un sapore da lingua classica, lontana e straniera rispetto alle norme correnti» e genera un «effetto irriproducibile in traduzione». Niente di nuovo sotto il sole, ma sempre meglio ripeterlo.) Al di là di questa premessa, il romanzo (?) è formidabile: Céline parla della sua esperienza di guerra – al fianco dei na [...]

    14. Neither the English title Castle to Castle nor the French title, D’un Chateau l’autre (more literally, “From one Castle to Another”) seem like honest titles for this roman a clef. This thinly disguised autobiography embellished with (presumably) fictional details was written by Louis-Ferdinand Celine in 1957. My Penguin (paperback) edition has a small collection of interviews with the author just prior to his death and, combining those interviews with my impression of the first-person pr [...]

    15. Amintiri dezlânate, ziceți? Dar bat undeva, direcția nord, poate sau ideea că pentru literatură se plătește în fond o plătea pentru că nu și-a ținut pliscul, bagatelă, anti-semitism, pro-nazism Pe naiba! Când îl citești nu înțelegi decât asta: umanism profund, incapacitatea de a-l demoniza pe celălalt, fie el neamț. Dincolo de frontiere - omul. Mă rog, mai puțin editorii. Și apoi, pe lângă faptul că m-a marcat, omul contra etichetelor, e un chilipir să-l ai în spatel [...]

    16. Having read "Journey to the End of the Night", I was nothing short of excited to explore Celine's work once more. My enthusiasm was aided by my interest in French history, and the creation of a Vichy enclave during the Liberation is an event in the war which is completely overlooked. I did not mind Celine's writing style- why shouldn't a man write the way he thinks, as opposed to superfluous prose? I picked up the book eagerly, and dived right in.I surfaced some time later, and contemplated wher [...]

    17. As for the work itself I had tried to read this before and gave up about a third of the way in my mistake the action picks up after he meets his gaucho friend it's worth reading I loved it! Funny life affirming, in the most brutal sense possible I promise I will revisit Journey and Death on the Instalment Plan But first I'll read North and Rigadoon Avoided reading Celine for a long time Mostly it was the anti-semite thing I mean there are plenty of defences of him, that he didn't mean it You can [...]

    18. Из замка в замок - первая часть трилогии Селина о его жизни в конце войны. Язвительно отзываясь о своих издателях и друзьях/врагах Селин выстраивает сложное по прочтению произведение. Мысли, перемешанные с диалогами и действиями, разделяются всего лишь тремя точками. Состо [...]

    19. J'avais lu et été très déçu par le "Sigmaringen" de Pierre Assouline. Je m'étais alors promis de lire "D'un château l'autre" de Céline, un roman d'un autre calibre d'un auteur qui en outre a vécu ces événements.Ah, on est loin de la niaiserie qui forme l'intrigue d'Assouline. Et tout cela alors que pour Céline l'histoire n'est qu'un élément secondaire, un prétexte à développer son style.J'ai été fasciné par 'D'un château l'autre" et j'ai enfin compris (je pense ) le style in [...]

    20. In the mood for misanthropy? Celine delivers the goods in this extended rant against all who have wronged him, knowingly or not, over his long life. The first part of the book is essentially an interior monologue from your cranky racist grandfather, uncle, etc but eventually Celine recounts his misadventures medicating the Vichy regime as it is holed up in a German castle at the end of WWII. His narrative of the horrors of war is riveting, and the book is laced with Celine's trademark dark humor [...]

    21. Céline nous raconte son expérience de la guerre, de son métier de médecin, de toute cette partie de sa vie tachée de merde, mais dans un style plutôt décousu, ce qui peut rendre la lecture ardue pour qui a trouvé difficile de passer au travers du Voyage au bout de la nuit. On voyage justement ici d'une idée à l'autre dans une ambiance saccadée, inconfortable. Les images qu'il nous propose, parfois dures à supporter, ont été en partie ce qui m'a motivé à aller jusqu'au bout de ce [...]

    22. Un très bon livre du Céline tardif moins connu. Passée la première (bonne) centaine de pages assez lassante où il se pose en victime et ne fait pratiquement que se plaindre de sa condition, hormis un passage complètement surréaliste où il revoit d'anciennes connaissances trépassées, prêtes à partir de l'autre côté d'une Seine transmuée en Styx pour l'occasion, on se plonge ensuite avec délectation une Allemagne entre la Libération et l'Armistice, où le style si unique de Célin [...]

    23. Céline zoals je hem kent in z'n romans, maar hier zonder de fictie als rookscherm. Een bloemlezing van brievencorrespondenties en pamfletten. Een korte, maar schitterende inkijk in het denken van de schrijver. Hard. Weerbarstig. Naar onze maatstaven moreel verwerpelijk door zijn antisemitisme dat geen blad voor de mond neemt. En toch Diepe medemenselijkheid schuilende onder een lawine aan misantropische salvo's. Geboren uit een afkeer voor de slachtpartij van Wereldoorlog I, die zowel hem als h [...]

    24. Castle to Castle is Celine at his best. In it, he constructs a story of a desperate collaborationist government-in-exile of Vichy holed up in a castle, cowering through the regular RAF airstrikes. The cast of villains are often ridiculous yet always strikingly human. The best moments, however, are when Celine descends into bitter rants, usually about being robbed of his royalties from earlier works or about the hypocrisies of the Allied forces. Only mildly-to-moderately anti-Semitic. This is a m [...]

    25. Misanthropy and dark humour at its best, Castle to Castle chronicles Celine's medicating of a bunch of Vichy French officials and Nazis held up in a castle at the end of WWII. In it, he offers some of his funniest rants while skewing the lines of reality. However, it is this skewing that makes the book at times teeter into incomprehension. Still, it is Celine and you'll find yourself laughing quite a bit. Never the less, it pales in comparison to Journey to the End of the Night and Death on the [...]

    26. This is easily one of the finest books that I have read so far in 2014. Too bad I can't give it six stars. This writing style is quite unique but not at all hard to follow. The story itself is quite fascinating. The only caveat would be, that it would require some knowledge of WW II and some background knowledge in French literature and culture.I believe that this is an important work and in my mind ranks favorably with Heinrich Boll, Gunter Grass and Jens Bjorneboe on the German condition comin [...]
