(El túnel) [PDF] á Ernesto Sabato

El túnelWhat I learned from this novel is that if you look intensely and soulfully at a ainting in a gallery and the artist himself happens to see you doing it and conceives the notion that you and only you alone have Ella's First Exam: A Medical Exam Fiction (Ella's Exams Book 1) perceived the true great meaning of this work you might find yourself cajoled inveigled drawn in stalked obsessively obsessed over night and day belittled berated bewildered bamboozled brutalised and finally stabbed and killed in a blizzard of male rage in just exactly the same way these ghastly things are done in any old vulgar sex crime you might see on Forensic Files or in theages of your local tabloid and so the moral is clear if out of the corner of your eye you do see the famous artist looking at you looking you should beat it out of there as fast as your little feet can carry you and don t look back until you re back behind double locked doors because he might just might be the rotagonist of an existential novel from the 1940s If you want to foreground a sociopath misogynist stalker s sense of urban isolation and alienation against a woman s rolonged emotional and Principios de economía política physical abuse at the hands of the sameerson and call it existentialist literature your choice Just don t expect me to appreciate it Sabato s The Tunnel 1948 resembles Camus The Stranger 1942 for both are spare short novels featuring murderer Aunt Jane's Nieces protagonists as firsterson narrators men who are rofoundly alienated not only from their societies but also from any meaningful ersonal relationship But the two rotagonists are very different from each other too Camus hero Meursault a shipping clerk is an unimaginative man alienated from his own emotions Sabato s hero Castel a well known ainter experiences his emotions intensely but Beneath the Moors and Darker Places projects them all onto a woman the only woman he believes who can ever fully understand him Meursault s alienation leads to a murder of indifference Sabato s to a murder of obsessionThe reader watches in growing frustration and horror as Casteloisons what might have been a brief sweet dalliance with a married woman who notices something in one of his Lascia che sia felice paintings he believed only he and his ideal woman could ever see His relentless all consuming hunger for her absolute devotion devours each romantic encounter draining it of joy and further intensifying his isolation Then one day that isolation blossoms into crimeThis is a fine book about the desperate loneliness of romantic obsession If such an obsession has ever touched your life you should find this short novel both disturbing and fascinatingSo why is it called The Tunnel Sabato and Castel explains this metaphor toward the end of the book it was if the two of us had been living inarallel This Beats Working for a Living: The Dark Secrets of a College Professor passageways or tunnels never knowing that we were moving side by side like souls in like times finally to meet before a scene I hadainted as a kind of key meant for her alone as a kind of secret sign that I was there ahead of her and that the We'll Make It Through passageways finally had joined and the hour of our meeting had comeWhat a stupid illusion that had beenthat the whole story of theassageways was my own ridiculous invention and that after all there was only one tunnel dark and solitary mine the tunnel in which I had spent my childhood my youth my entire life Really wanted to nail this in one sitting but still managed it in two wow this still retains it s The Silent Earth: The Complete Trilogy power to shock all these years later disturbing and even funny Sabato featuresossibly the most chilling ending I have come across to date Narrated by an artist in jail that being Juan Pablo Castelwho ractically goes about stalking a woman named Maria after he spots her eying one of his canvases in a gallery From this moment on he forces his way into her life learning she has a blind husband and ex lovers drives him deranged with jealous envy A erverse effect of the candour in Castel s retrospective account is that it almost makes you forget he s a murderer believing this is an ordinary man just telling a story It wasn t always uncomfortable and has some darkly humorous moments throughout The lurking horror of his crime is all the gross for its subtlety that s what makes El T nel so darn chilling A fantastic The Age of Apollyon psychological short novel Missing out on top ma You know I was going to review this book but then it occurred to me that I would never know if you have read my review I mean yes I do get likes but supposeeople are liking them without reading them Of course why would anyone do that Two ossibilities seem to suggest themselves either they want to make a fool of me by making me keep writing reviews that no one reads or to distract me from something Of course that in itself calls for a mass conspiracy because so many eople from so many countries will be liking my reviews unless of course it is one Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples person with many fake accounts Now that I think about it theossibility seems very real The above is how our "protagonist might have started a review But now to roper reviewI don t know if it be defined "might have started a review But now to roper reviewI don t know if it can be way but all art whether it be The Lost Masters: Grace and Disgrace in '68 painting writing singing etc all art forms seems to be tools of communication of communicating in superior ways It is like that teenager boy writingoems to his sweat heart sort of thing or making albums uoting great oets when one doesn t feel gifted oneself because our normal everyday language isn t enough to express what we feelBut what about artists What "Yearnings Must They Have In Themselves To "must they have in themselves to it their rofession to develop those tools to be on constant look out at just the right word hrase color etc Why should MB write leave alone his manuscript of Master and Margarita leave alone keep them knowing that they are as good as their death warrant Manuscripts don t burn one hears in the answer but why don t they Is it that they live in constant fear of being misunderstood like Kafka was Perhaps getting the message right in itself not enough

Eed be the erson who can understand the message And thus Nabokov s irritation at wrong interpretations of his works and Van Gogh s sorrow who though created most beautiful aintings never found a air of eyes in which that beauty is reflected Perhaps that is why artists seek osterity and immortality to carry to their death bed the hope that what they have to say will be one day be heard in just the way they wanted The Les Ténébreuses - Tome I - La Fin d'un monde protagonist in the Invitation to a Beheading by Nabokov gives his writings to his executioners in desperation and asks them not to destroy them as long as he is alive so that he could at least have a theoretical chance of finding a readerSo is it for that theoretical chance of finding someone who will understand him that keeps the artist going It seems to be true in the case of Juan Pablo ourrotagonist here for whom the whole life was like a dark tunnel yes that explains the title where he lived in solitude because as he Karneval, Vol. 4 puts it no one understood him The trouble begins when he finds a woman does understand him And he discovers that he has a lot to say than that singleainting She wants that too because the need for understanding is mutual It doesn t matter who The Hiding Place paints and who reflects Only our guy can t have enough his overt thinking over analyticalathological brain can t believe his good fortune Like Anna Karenina he needs constant assurances of her fidelity as is often the case of those who fell in love when they had long given up on any chance of finding it Like her he too dwells over suicide but rather refers killing his girlfriendCamus commissioned its ublishing and the narrator here too finds himself a stranger in his world but his solitude because he is a nihilist but rather because of his misanthropy It also shows similarity to Lolita in that Juan Pable might be utting his own version and suppressing the voice of his victim Just as Opaue the Second Time RoundIn The Tunnel Ernesto Sabato has a mysogonistic uerile obsessive apparently The Elephants Journey psychopathic murderer tell the reader his every thought about a folie a deux with his victim and its rationale My first time through The Tunnel left me bewildered Of what literary rather than ideological merit is this work For whose edification or amusement is it meant My original conclusion It s a difficult book to be interested in much less like But Iicked up on a hint by another GR reader and found that Sabato was a scientist before he was a writer and had incorporated uantum Sklaven für Wutawia + Gauner mit der 'Goldenen Hand' physics in The Tunnel as a sort of hidden metaphor Indeed there is a short book by Halpern and Carpenter which outlines the way in which the metaphor is meant to work at keyoints in the book This led me back into The Tunnel for another look Halpern and Carpenter suggest that Sabato followed Borges in his interest in the labyrinthine character of history through which the world changes direction at critical nodes They also oint out Borges allusions to alternative and even arallel universes that were of interest to Sabato They contend that Sabato builds on these Borgian tropes to create scenes of discontinuous time in his storyMaybe so But I find the argument of Halpern and Carpenter to be somewhat tendentious But even stipulating their observations I don t see the Changing Face of the Hero point The metaphor if there is certainly not central to this tale of murder andsychopathy Of course there are always alternative trajectories for any story or for any historical reality But the idea of using the collapse of the uantum wavefront as the signal for a decisive turning The Undisputed Greatest Writer of All Time: A Collection of Poetry point seems to me trivial and fatuousTrue therotagonist Juan Pablo is continuously analysing his situation in terms of alternative StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story possibilities as in this internal monologue I constructed an endless series of variations In one I was talkative witty something in fact I never am in another I was taciturn in still another sunny and smiling At times though it seems incredible I answered rudely even with ill concealed rage It happened in some of these imaginary meetings that our exchange broke off abruptly because of an absurd irritability on myart or because I rebuked her almost crudely for some comment I found It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life pointless or ill thought out But this is a symptom of madness not a symbol of impending uantum resolution Even the speaker recognises that this damned compulsion to justify everything I do isn t normalConseuently it seems to me that the metaphor of uantumhysics does nothing to explicate Sabato s very dark story Juan Pablo is a misanthrope without any mitigating not to say redeeming features The Tunnel therefore doesn t get any interesting with a Lignin Biodegradation possible metaphorical foundation Unless of course sabato s intention was simply to create a sort of uantum uncertainty about this very foundation In any case not terribly stimulating My original review us here Cui bonoI have been trying to finish this short novel for weeks But I can only get through 10ages at a time I ve finally given up I don t get it Is there something beyond an obsessivecompulsive folie a deux that I am simply unable to comprehend Someone Pure Chance please explain where I am going wrong One of the giants of Latin American literature Ernesto S bato 1911 2011 lived most of his life in Buenos Aires Argentina anderiodically committed his own manuscri The Tunnel by Sabato inspired by Dostoevsky and Kafka is not just an intriguing novel but also an important existential classic It cannot be totally denied that there some similarities between Castel of this novel and Meursault from The Stranger "But Castel Is Not "Castel not nihilistic in his views The heart of Castel might have been frozen but there was a drop or two of love just enough to feed the birdsSolitude is often thought of as something self warranted Sometimes even a man who built his own fortress of solitude from which he can watch and sneer at others waits eagerly for someone to breach the wall. ?صل مع أحد، حتى مع المرأة التي يبدو أنها فهمته من خلال الرسم والنفق مكتوبة بلسان مجنون،

That confines him God or Man Solitude is not indestructibleCastel doesn t want to be judged but to be understood That s why Castel having ended up in the The Lady and the Lionheart prison cell narrates the events that changed his life He was oblivious of all human sorrows in his tunnel of solitude There were no intruders His journey inside his tunnel has always been unobtrusive with occasional suspicious sneaks from the outside and a faint hope of meeting someone inside from the outside Slowly the walls keep narrowing in Darkness keeps creeping in Such was the life of Castel Usually that feeling of being alone in the world is accompanied by a condescending sense of superiority I scorn all humankindeople around me seem vile sordid stupid greedy gross niggardly I do not fear solitude it is almost Olympian He was free but incomplete and waiting anxiously for someone or a guiding light Along came a lovely being ravaging his solitude and denting his vanity After gazing

them and which would sweep him away in the name of love Here is Castel reflecting on his ast and a love affair which otherwise would have lasted had he not killed the only erson who would understand

momentous and we grasp for it as we would claw for a tree root to keep from hurtling into an abyss But soon the goodness seemed not enough His A (kinda) Country Christmas perverseredictions deceived
