'The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge' isn't a very novelistic novel as it is told as a sort of diary in the first person and is semi autobiographical Brigge is a twenty eight year old Danish man alone and adrift in Paris He wishes to transmute his fear of death into some profound literary work and fills his notebooks with memories historical anecdote and sketches of the Parisian streets I was very moved by Rilke's evocation of urban alienation of listening to your neighbours through the walls of a cheap rented room because you have no one to talk to and of death obsession I identified with Brigge's preoccupations having on occasion been in just the same state of mind myself On the other hand towards the end of the book Brigge writes of love than death and this made him harder for me to relate to This probably doesn't reflect too well on me Brigge a solitary and melancholic figure with no direction in life but periodically overwhelmed by fear of death seems to be a shadow or echo of Rilke Perhaps he represents someone Rilke thought he could have been Brigge is unhappy and there is no indication that he will ever transcend his poverty and perpetual introspection I can very well understand being afraid of such a lonely trap of a life In fact one might subtitle this book 'The Dangers of Being an Unhappy Introvert in Paris' During the first third or so I was rather reminded of Plath's 'The Bell Jar'Rilke's writing is absolutely beautiful which isn't surprising as he was famous as a poet In fact this was his only novel By way of example I was struck by this bit about reading'Somehow I had a premonition of what I so often felt at later times that you did not have the right to open a single book unless you engaged to read them all With every line you read you were breaking off a portion of the world Before books the world was intact and afterwards it might be restored to wholeness once again' I tend to find poetry intimidating and impossible to understand but I ought to give Rilke's a chance 'The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge' suggests I have an affinity with him No other writer I've come across has articulated the fear of death as effectively

Uello rappresentato dalla sconsacrazione subita dall’arte nell’età moderna Ma il “Malte” libro tutto permeato d’interni e d’interiorità di nomi e di. I don’t imagine that I will always read I hope not anyway For someone who is so scared of death it is rather perverse or certainly absurd that I spend so much of my time amongst the dead instead of engaging with the world around me Indeed that is why I started reading heavily it was I’m sure a way of turning away from a world that I so often felt and still feel at odds with towards another that I could control and which did not challenge me With books I can pick and choose a sensibility an outlook that chimes with my own and I can guarantee company and conversation that I don’t find alienating or dispiriting To this end I have read The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge three times As a novel it is something of a failure but large parts of it resonate with me as much as if not than any writing ever set down on paper“My last hope was always the window I imagined that outside there there still might be something that belonged to me even now even in this sudden poverty of dying But scarcely had I looked thither when I wished the window had been barricaded blocked up like the wall For now I knew that things were going on out there in the same indifferent way that out there too there was nothing but my loneliness”The Notebooks is essentially the thoughts memories and impressions of Malte a twenty eight year old Dane who has recently moved to Paris There are a number of well known but now dated novels that deal with the ex pat experience such as Cortazar’s Hopscotch and Miller’s Tropic of Cancer novels that are invariably marred by machismo and pretension The Notebooks however contains none of that Rilke’s Paris isn’t a playboy’s playground littered with booze and whores; it is a ‘great’ city full of ‘curious temptations’ but there is nothing glamorous about it and no sense that Malte is living some kind of mock heroic existence Indeed in the opening line of the novel he states that Paris is a place where it strikes him one does not go to live but where one goes to die; it is a place that smells of pommes frites and fearThat Malte is the last or one of the last in his family line is trebly significant for he is preoccupied with death with solitude and with nostalgia One notices that again in contrast with many other similar novels there is not one living character with whom he regularly engages or communicates In Paris he is an observer making notes about ordinary citizens but never interacting with them For example he sees a pregnant woman ‘inching ponderously along by a high sun warmed wall’ as though ‘seeking assurance that it was still there’ he watches a man collapse and then another who has some kind of physical ailment that causes him to hop and jerk suddenly He appears to be drawn to the eccentric and lost the suffering and down trodden no doubt because he identifies with them but he remains alone and isolated himself Towards the end of the novel he states that he once felt a loneliness of such enormity that his heart was not eual to itHowever when he is surrounded by people such as when there is a carnival he describes it as a ‘vicious tide of humanity’ and notes how laughter oozes from their mouths like pus from a wound Malte is the kind of man who lives mostly in his head who although he encourages his solitude is scared of losing his connection with the world of withdrawing and parting from it At one point he goes to the library and praises it as a place where people are so engrossed in their reading that they barely acknowledge each other He spends his time strolling to little shops book dealers and antiue places that he says no one ever visits Once we see an interest in obscure things in things that have been forgotten or neglected One of my favourite passages is when he comes upon a torn down building and he states that it is the bit that is left that interests him the last remaining wall with little bits of floor still visible It is the suggestion of something once whole once fully functioning that grabs his attentionRainer Maria Rilke – left – and Auguste Rodin in ParisAs noted much of the book is concerned with Malte’s memories regarding his family specifically in relation to his childhood One understands how this – his upbringing and family situation – may have gone some way to making him the man he is He is taciturn he says and then notes how his father was too His father was not fond of physical affection either Later in one of the autobiographical anecdotes Malte talks about his mother’s mourning for a dead child a little girl and how he would pretend to be Sophie the name of Rilke’s own mother in an effort to please her It is therefore not a surprise that he is highly sensitive inward looking and ill at ease with himself Indeed there is much in The Notebooks about identity and individuality There are Malte says no plurals there is no women only singularities; he baulks at the term family saying that the four people under this umbrella did not belong together Further at one stage he fools around dressing up in different costumes in which he feels himself not less; but then he tries on a mask and has some kind of emotional breakdownAll of these things – ruins obscurity deformity ailments nostalgia the self loneliness – come together in what is the book’s dominant theme which is that of death Only Tolstoy’s Ivan Ilych and Lampedusa’s The Leopard contain as much heartrending insight into the subject There are numerous passages and uotes I could discuss or lift from the text but not wanting to ruin your own reading I will focus on only one When writing about individuality Malte bemoans the fact as he sees it that people do not die their own deaths any they die the death of their illness they become their illness and their passing therefore has nothing to do with them In sanatoriums he continues people die ‘so readily and with much gratitude’; the upper classes die a genteel death at home and the lower classes are simply happy to find a death that ‘ or less fits’“Who is there today who still cares about a well finished death No one Even the rich who could after all afford this luxury are beginning to grow lazy and indifferent; the desire to have a death of one’s own is becoming and rare In a short time it will be as rare as a life of one’s own”Malte contrasts these predictable unheroic deaths with that of his uncle Chamberlain Christoph Detlev Brigge The old Chamberlain died extravagantly; his death was so huge that new wings of the house ought to have been built to accommodate it He shouted and made demands demands to see people – both living and dead – and demands to die This voice plagued the locals keeping them in a state of agitation; it was a voice louder than the church bellsit was the voice of death not of Christoph and it became the master a terrible master than the Chamberlain had ever been himself The point that Malte is making seems to be that one should not go gentle into that good night that one should not accept the death that most pleases others that causes the least amount of fuss You will die there is no escape it is within you your death from the very first moment you carry it with you at all times but you do not have to go out with a whimperI wrote at the beginning of this review that The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge is a failure as a novel and this probably warrants further explanation Rather like Pessoa’s The Book of Disuiet which it resembles in many ways actually I imagine that some readers will find it difficult to read the book cover to cover There is absolutely no plot and many of the entries do not follow on from the previous one Moreover after a few pages about Paris which I would guess serve to draw in a number of people the focus abruptly shifts and the book then becomes increasingly strange and elusive with a relentless interiority None of this bothers me however While I do hope to give up reading one day I will without uestion carry this book around inside me for the rest of my life rather like my death
