Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

This darkly comic, wonderfully inventive work, winner of the 1993 National Book Award, transforms the lore of Newfoundland--including shipwrecks, nautical knot-tying, horrid weather and family legend--into brilliant literary art. It is the story of the rebirth of Quoyle, a hulking, inarticulate, misery-ridden widower who flees upstate New York to take up residence in Newfoundland. The island of his forebears, Newfoundland is a dreary rock in the north Atlantic beset by lousy weather. Proulx lovingly recreates this hardscrabble location in her vivid, distinctive prose and populates it with a cast of amusing, richly human characters. Quoyle, a "third-rate newspaperman," makes a hit with his "Shipping News" column, while his anguish at the loss of his faithless wife is slowly transformed by the strengthening ties that bind him to the place and to his fellow Newfoundlanders. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

'A very impressive achievement. So funny, so full of delights.' Guardian 'As stark and ruggedly beautiful as the storm-battered coast of Newfoundland itself.' Sunday Telegraph 'Ambitious and accomplished...The characterisation is rich, the dialogue both original and convincing.' Alan Massie, Scotsman 'A stunning novel.' Observer 'To read "The Shipping News" is to yearn to be sitting in The Flying Squid Lunchstop, eating seal fin curry, watching the icebergs clink together in the bay.' The Times

Format: Taschenbuch
The Shipping News by E. Annie Proulx is a regional fictional novel that takes place in the isolated Newfoundland village of Killick - Claw. Quoyle, a middle aged man whose ancestors lived in Newfoundland returns there with his two daughters and aunt to start a new life and forget about his depressing, embarrassing past. The small town life of Killick - Claw, the starkly cruel coastline, the haunting history of Quoyle's ancestors, and a group of unforgettably unique characters who find there way into his life, help create a foundation for Quoyle to build on. Proulx is very successful in connecting all of these distinct parts and showing how they all help Quoyle start a new life. As the odd family of four starts figuring out how to fit into the culture, society, and natural setting of Killick - Claw, the reader learns to do the same with E. Annie Proulx's short, chopped writing style. The barebones lifestyle consisting of only the necessities that Quoyle learns to live is directly reflected in the writing style the author uses to portray it. Sentences are often not grammatically complete but always succeed in depicting Proulx's complete meaning. The actual text tells us: "A rough morning. Quoyle jumped down the steps. He would drive." We know, from these eleven words, what the setting is, who is involved, what he is thinking, and his plans for the morning. Without this reflective, no-nonsense writing style, Quoyle and his northern world would not be complete. Without Quoyle and Newfoundland to write about, this writing style might seem silly. As regional fiction, this novel does an excellent job of showing the importance of setting.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Patrick O'Hannigan (catpat@fix.net) am 28. November 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
E. Annie Proulx has a gift for describing the ocean that even the late Jacques Cousteau might envy. At one point in this otherwise overrated story, she describes an unruffled bay as "an aluminum tray dotted with paper boats." And she's equally vivid when the weather turns nasty: "Translucent thirty-foot combers the color of bottles crashed onto stone, coursed bubbles into a churning lake of milk shot with foam."
Unfortunately, dead-on maritime observation and the main character's amusing habit of thinking in headlines can't by themselves redeem a meandering plot whose revelations are telegraphed whole chapters in advance of their appearance. Notice, too, that nearly every reviewer swoons over the Proulx style. Her writing is described as "staccato," "atmospheric," "vivid," and "unique." Phooey! Clerks at Western Union have been writing this way for decades. Proulx simply gets more mileage from sentence fragments than anyone else. It's a good trick, but it verges on self-parody after awhile. Some of us still believe that the best writing styles are the ones you don't notice. Bottom line: while reading this book, I stopped to read three others.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 13. Juni 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
This quirky slice-of-life tale of awakening love and self actualization in New Foundland was a pleasure to read. Getting into the author's rythms took awhile but once the mist clears (literally) in the setting of the Newfoundland bays the characters come to life and soar. I've seldom read such well-drawn characters; in a few bold strokes you feel comfortable with Quoyle, his children, the Aunt, Wavey and all the colorful colleges at the shipping news. You really come to know them as friends. Every character makes an indelible mark in your imagination. Some passages are breathtakingly beautiful and exiting. The local idioms/speech and humor are a well observed delight. Clever use is made of the book of knots to frame the action and themes. Headlines internal to the main character are witty and insightful. Dark edges of life are included in the spirit of journalistic sensationalism.
A great summer read!

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 6. Mai 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I was assigned "The Shipping News" for my Senior English class and it invoked rather indifferent feelings. I appreciated Proulx's unique, pensive, and insightful descriptions of everyday objects and occurences that often go unnoticed. There is an underlying humor in the quirkyness of the character's lives and experiences that adds enjoyment to the reading. However, the plot is rather dull as well as the lives of the characters in the book. It is similar to Faulkner's " As I Lay Dying" in the fact that it deals with the stream of conciousness of the characters,psychology,and choppy, matter of fact sentences. I highly recommend the book to readers who appreciate unique, offbeat writing styles, and the development of character's subconcious minds. However, for the reader who is engaged by exciting, action filled literature, this book is not for you; you will find it extremely difficult to become engaged in it and be enthusiastic to be following the lives of the characters. " The Shipping News" is highly recommended for careful readers who are appreciative of unique descriptions and the development of the mind and lives of ordinary people.
