Ali und Nino Free download é 109 Kurban Said å 9 Free read First published in Vienna in 1937 this classic story of romance and adventure has been compared to Dr Zhivago and Romeo and Juliet  Its mysterious author was recently the subject of a feature article in the New Yorker which has inspired a forthcoming biography Out of print for nearly three decades until the hardcover re release last year Ali and Nino is Kurban Said's masterpiece It is a captivating novel as evocative of the exotic desert landscape as it is of the passion between two people pull. There is a large genre of novels related to WWI that deal in the heartbreak of the last summer before the storm the coming death of the old world and the founding of the new Le Grand Meulnes which is still the uintessential French coming of age novel is one example The histories on this theme are scarcely less legionThis novel is both a part of that genre and so much than that It is told from the first person perspective of Ali Khan Shirvanshir who has turned a reuest from the town gossip to write down what a hero s feelings are into a personal diary Ali Khan is a Muslim growing up in Baku on the shores of the Caspian Sea in what is at the time a Russian possession He is in love with Nino Kipiani a Georgian Christian who becomes a Georgian Princess through the courtesy of the Czar If you re thinking that this will turn out to be a typical star crossed lovers meet at garden walls and ne er dare speak their love you d be wrong For this is a melting pot of a society an oil boom town where Georgians Armenians Westerners Persians and Muslims who interestingly are the group referred to by their religion not their nationality they are called Mohammedans all mix together Everyone does have a place but there are many factors which factor into deciding who matters who is where on the social scale schooling family money and family historyNo the book focuses on the much interesting task of how one makes a cross cultural life in a world that is becoming ever divided along every line possible religion politics economics and of course the powerful new god of NationalismThis is than anything else a meditation on definitions explanations lines and musings on Who I Am and Who I Am Not and perhaps importantly for geopolitics Who We Are and Who We Are Not Ali visits many towns around his area and they all have some great story of their background a legend that makes where they live the best place on earth and no one seems to mind that the next town over also claims that they re the best ever Not in this melting pot of an area Everything that everyone does seems to have to be attributed to some part of their background or heritage such as there s a moment where Ali goes wild with fury after a friend of his kidnaps his fianc e after seducing her with the idea of living in Europe and escaping the Asia that scares her and he kills the man while taking a bite out of his throat and afterwards says I am an Asiatic not a European I never mastered the art of hitting below the belt I can only go mad like the desert wolf In this charged atmosphere every action is a statement every minute one chooses sides in this meeting place of Asia and Europe Everyone judges those actions to determine which side you are on Ali is a man caught by this transformative moment in time 1914 He is a man who is Asiatic in his blood and yet is in love with a woman who loves Europe and by extension does many things that might make him seem to lean towards Europe for the sake of putting the smile back in Nino s eyes and yet and yet He cannot let go of the desert and freaks out at the possibility of being posted to Paris where he cannot ride out into the desert or stand on top of his roof looking over the sandThere are many uotes here where people try to philosophize their way to a solution to what makes people so different and how this Asia and Europe is divided People at the time weren t uite sure what to make of it where the line was And so conversations like these happened What have you against trees To me they are the embodiment of life fulfilled Ali Khan is afraid of trees the way a child is afraid of ghosts said Nino It s not as bad as that But what you feel for trees I feel for the desert I repliedDadiani s childish eyes blinked The desert he said fallow bushes and hot sand The world of trees perplexes me your Highness It is full of fight and mystery of ghosts and demons You cannot look ahead You are surrounded It is dark The sun s rays are lost in the twilight of the trees In this twilight everything is unreal No I do not love he trees The shadows of the wood oppress me and it makes me sad to hear the rustling of the branches I love simple things wind sand and stones The desert is simple like the thrust of a sword I lose my way in the woods your Highness Dadiani looked at me thoughtfully You have the soul of a desert man he said Maybe that is the one real division between men wood men and desert men The Orient s dry intoxication comes from the desert where hot wind and hot sand make men drunk where the world is simple and without problems The woods are full of uestions Only the desert does not ask does not give and does not promise anything But the fire of the soul comes from the wood The desert man I can see him has but one face and knows but one truth and that truth fulfills him The wood man has many faces Maybe that is the main difference between East and West The example there would seem to have uite the Western interpretation but there s just as many conversations the other way And I wonder if I only see the representative of the East coming off worse there because of my own Western or modern biases about tolerance I don t know But if this all seems too much just remember this was written in 1937 by a man who was born in Baku in 1904 and who therefore must be presumed to know what he is talking about He gives all sides a voice lets everyone express both their superiority and their shortcomings in or less eual measure no one group is allowed to be pure For instance our hero repeatedly thinks about killing Westerners for looking at his wife s shoulders or and is shocked by them asking about her in conversation interest in another man s wife being indecent in his society While at the same time he is the man who gives up the most of himself for love tries his best to do whatever makes Nino happy even at the cost of his own identity and is generally the most honest kind and reflective character in the book Characters representing the West are often shown to have the most drive the most passion and the clarity to see the way the world works and yet they re also shown to be hypocritical and of course the horror of WWI Sadly the author only has to conjure up the image of the machine gun or say the word trenches to condemn what all the civilization of Europe has come to The fact that he wrote this on the eve of yet another world war is even poignant I ve heard that this is considered the Azeri national novel I d believe that It gives a visceral picture of the history culture and every day life of the area at the time and than that deals with the larger conflicts that still plague the region today And not only the region elsewhere in the world as well The story of the author ties in to the theme of this work As fascinating as the novel really He was born a Ukranian Jew converted to Islam and became Essad Bey and published under the name of Kurban Said He lived in Baku left for Berlin after the Russian Revolution Berlin until Hitler Austria and Italy There is evidence actually that the Austrian baroness he became friends with in the 1930s deserves co authorship of this book it is certainly based on his interactions with her as is the other novel published under his name The Girl From the Golden Horn This was a man who was used to trying on different identities and seeing what became him what came closest to his Self and a man who would know what it was like for someone to tell you what you were when you didn t consider yourself to be anything of that kind Reading this I often had to remind myself that it was written in 1937 All of these things are still immediately important now East v West the answer to the uestion What is Europe the balance between preservation
