I exist for the sake of the rivers beneath the earthTo listen and to understandNot to understand but to be close to where it is happening I may scare some readers away but the only way I can describe this book is as a long introspective poem told in prose fragments or cantos There is no plot there is precious little in the way of characters and action What we have here is a consciousness asking unanswerable uestions a contemplative look at existence a stream of emotions settling one over the other like falling snow amazement fear curiosity love tramuility turmoil grace Tarjei Vesaas turns himself into a mirror reflecting the natural wonders of him homeland offering us the gift of wonder that makes the particular into the universal The overal tonality is a melancholic one a silent sigh at the end of a long trip Instead of a continuous narrative we have elegant and spare brushstrokes of china ink dancing across the page in a pulsing rhythm of light and darkness we have the beating heart of a consciousness larger than the individual an awakening atuning to the long lifespan of stone to the the migratory habits of cranes to the tidal waves of the oceanVesaas is the boatman guiding his craft through the meanders and rapids of innocent years passionate years toiling years searching years tired years searching through this his last published novel to gain the shores of peaceful river The shining tranuil river glides out with its burdens It comes as if from far away in the interior and delivers its innermost secrets On its way towards the distant oceanwhat accompanies it on the journey Intense desires that have subsided Nothing It is the evening of a long journey and the poet shares with us the richness and the wisdom of his experience in almost transparent sparkling words that have been polished like gemstones over the grindstone of memory My own words feel heavy footed and stumbling in trying to convey how much the prose of the Norwegian has moved and inspired me As usual I have to borrow from his own talent in order to better express these feelings The things one says usually seem to be left lying about on the floor like a pair of lop sided shoes while the things one wanted to say feel like birds in flight Words can cause trouble like large rocks in one s pathWrong words can clear the largest rocks out of the wayWrong again Words can turn into dark chasms unbridgeable for a whole lifetimeWe know very little about the power and destructiveness of wordsyet words is all I have to take your heart away as the Bee Gees taugth me so many years ago and my heart beats this time to the rhythm of the long legged dance and beating wings of blue cranes majestic creatures who come visiting from far away countries to teach a young boy about the beauty and the danger and the fleeting nature of happiness They are not birds they are ourselves when we have passed between the millstones crossed the thorny wastes gone throught he fire undertaken wondrous journeys and given away our heart to things unworthy of it with the resulting humiliation unto deaththen it happensthen we must dance like this Then we clothe ourselves in the proud guise of the crane and sail through the world away from the fleshpots to find a familiar marsh utter wild shrieks and invent frenzied gestures A morning of adventure in early childhood a young boy hiding silent and scared among the grass can give meaning and strength to a whole lifetime The most famous seuence in the book reminds me of Dyonisian mysteries in ancient Greece explains my fascination for Vesaas through the vital connection he maintains with the mineral and natural world his Zen like capacity to extract energy and contentment from sunrise and snow and flowing water a connection that has been alienated in me through long years among cement towers my eyes glued to an electronic screen I have become suspicious even of my tendency to overanalize the texts in my reviews to reach for far fetched connections in order to impress my friends with my sophistication and my knowledge of trivia I went to wikipedia to get some research done after reading about the dancing cranes from In the Marshes and on the Earth looking up Bacchus Dionysus is represented by city religions as the protector of those who do not belong to conventional society and thus symbolizes everything which is chaotic dangerous and unexpected everything which escapes human reason and which can only be attributed to the unforeseeable action of the gods He is also called Eleutherios the liberator whose wine music and ecstatic dance frees his followers from self conscious fear and care and subverts the oppressive restraints of the powerful But Vesaas has no need of clever connections or academic explanations he is a vessel a boat sailing between the bones of the earth and the distant unreachable stars He is the burning conscience that is inside the world not the dry cold intelligence that places itself outside in order to observe and analyze For with one s eyes one may mirror the shy pure craneI am on the crane s own territory I seem to have entered a sacred place where one has no right to beThe ritual will be played out in the guise of a bird He is searching for anchoring points for the safe shores that will reconcile him with the imminent darkness Wisdom seems forever out of his grasp night unavoidable and lonelines the only certainty Liberation is a big word It doesn t suit me what am I to be liberated from On the contrary I must be able to receive To fill a void The poet is wise the poet is sad the poet is terrorized by the night and the loneliness If the cries of the cranes could be translated into human language they could probably say something like this sung to the tune of Jacues Brel Ne me uitte pas Please Don t go Don t go for a long time I must see it all Don t go Do something that will frighten me if you like but don t go I will stop now before I drown this gem of a book with unnecessary explanations I cherished every page of it some full of light others distubingly dark and morbid I put on Jacues Brel on my music player added some Don McLean Starry Starry Night Seasons in the Sun and forgot for a few hours that I am between four walls I walked with Vesaas among high mountain meadows full of spring flowers and sailed on tranuil rivers towards wooded shore The following uotes are just a few haiku like fragments of a bigger picture that is revealed patiently with each of the sketches included in the bookthe line breaks are my own the novel is presented in prose but I believe that Vesaas makes no distinction between the two forms when he builds his prose The translator of his work did a great job capturing the rhythm and the tonality of his phrasing and I envy his compatriots first for being able to walk in the poet s footsteps and secondly for being able to read his novels in the language they were written So let me fade away and follow the spell of Vesaas words Snowbound snowed under and trapped in the snowThis is my song and thus is my songthe day is long and this is my songlet me simply get snowbound and trapped in the snowThe day is long and the day is longIt is good to sleep snowbound and trapped in the snow Nothing is nothing the day is past it is evening and the wind is risingOutside are moonshine and wind The heart is split in twoirresolute between its desiresYet the boat has to advance night or day are merely shifting veils to be traversedAdvance with fierce courageNot for the sake of menFor the sake of insoluble riddlesIt utter secrecythe heart is split in two The world is large The world contains such infinite variety and we need not know about it than that A solitary thick grove of leafy trees And the loveliest weather Warm rain that has a uality of great gentleness a uality of deep peace It is a young girl sitting in the sunshineA girl of course One sees only oneself in the stone There everything is sealed yet one sees oneself in the stone exactly as created and walks uickly past oneself with beating heart The walls in the rock are smooth yet deeply troubled A breathing space between iron hands Soon they will be here One must cling to ordinary things If there is a heart here it is lonelyThe heart grows lonely that is how it was created It grows finally into its true selfLonely It is far to its neighbour and there it is a stranger So it has even further to go The air may be charged with bitter uestions useless uestions They will not be asked They merely rest above the carrying water rest while on the move like everything else No current halts because it is difficult to understand that intense desires are uenched Scent of the first rain on a light dress over warm fleshWhat of itOr on my own light shirtFleeting precious moments It seems so trivial but it doesn t take muchJust walking up to fetch the milk churn early one morning can be a miracle
