Three linked stories of exploration intertwine here as an unidentified narrator researches the disappearance in 1981 of Josef Mazzini whose obsession with the Austrian explorer Julius Von Payer had brought him to the settlement of Longyearbyen on Spitsbergen island in the Arctic Payer a sub lieutenant in the Austrian army having adventured and explored in the Tyrolean Alps in the 1860s making than 60 ascents including several first ascents led the Austro Hungarian North Pole Expedition in 1872 which was both Manzinni and the narrator s interest This was an attempt at the Pole via the North East Passage along the Norwegian and Siberian coasts and during the journey he discovered Franz Joseph Land Much of the narrative is made up of uotations from the official log of the expedition and the diaries of individual crew members It s only the invented character of Mazzini that makes Ransmayr s book a novel The vivid descriptions of the Arctic and the use of the archives makes this read as a historical document would It s a fascinating tale of Polar exploration that deserves a place with the best and yet is surprisingly out of print available at OpenLibrary archiveorg

Review É PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ï Christoph Ransmayr Christoph Ransmayr Ï 2 Read Read Die Schrecken des Eises und der Finsternis Suing honor glory and other vanities endure two frigid winters when their ship is trapped in ice their beards freeze they are blinded by snow and ill with scurvy but the Bible is read every Sunday A century later men approach the icy expanse with snowmobiles and Walkmen undertaking selfinterested scientific projects This aggressively intelligent narrative transforms the polar regions into unusually fertile ground Publishers Weekly. This is such a strange book Incredibly clever and thought provoking but also rather sad It s definitely a book that needs to be reread to be fully appreciated the structure and Ransmayr s deconstruction of historical truth merit particular attention
