Jings Just about the most depressing book I have ever read powerful bleak and timeless It's sometime in post Ottoman pre Hoxha Albania and a blood feud is playing itself out through the eyes of a young mountaineer who is hopelessly caught in the game while a couple of urban honeymooners are rubbernecking their way around the High Plateau Then it gets a bit Passage to India as done by Kafka And it's drizzling in the grey mountains where the widow in black sits by the road above the village where all the men are hiding in towersREREAD A year later now in Albania and with a year 11 class as a class text We haven't had time to do it in much depth but I at least have had a deeper plunge into it and frankly it's a towering thing Truly great European literature with rich layered images and subtle devastating truths Not all of Kadare is like this and so far in my reading this is by far the bestREREAD AGAIN and again with a class this time in depth I'm still blown away This time I particularly found Mark Ukacierra to be interesting Free read ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ï Ismail Kadare

The Ultimate Novel of the Blood Feud in AlbaniaBlood feuds have existed in many parts of the world throughout history The USA with its Hatfields and McCoys is no stranger to the custom either The practice seems to run most deeply in remote mountainous areas where there is no state power The tribal societies there often develop a code of justice to provide rules for an otherwise rule less society A code of the blood feud develops to handle murder cases Nowhere that I ever heard of did the system evolve into such an intricate traditional code of laws as in the mountainous highlands of Albania There the Kanun or Law of Lek Dukagjini spread throughout the lawless region now lying in northern Albania Kosovo and Montenegro a region that largely maintained its own identity and customs throughout the centuries long period of Turkish rule to emerge in 20th century Europe with the blood feud still flourishingKadare Albania's premier writer has written a vivid dark novel that not only captures the details of highland Albanian life in the 1920s but also shows the ultimate tragedy for a society that allows murder to follow murder inexorably and unchallenged A couple from the urbanized less traditional lowlands go for their honeymoon into the highlands riding in a horse drawn carriage a great luxury for the highlanders mainly because roads were very scarce The man a writer tends to romanticize the blood soaked traditions of his country's remote regions At the same time Gjorg a young highlander who has killed a man in revenge for his brother is given a month's truce before he in turn will become a target He can expect a bullet at any moment after April 17 hence his April is broken into safe and dangerous parts His fate intersects with those of the literate travellers and the book comes to its inevitable ending For a novel that explores seldom seen territory written in a terse but beautiful style please read this book Since the end of communism in 1991 the blood feud has returned to Albania still often lawless in its mountain areas This book is no fossil
