Utz



Utz collects Meissen porcelain with a passion His collection, which he has protected and enlarged through both World War II and Czechoslovakia s years of Stalinism, numbers than 1,000 pieces, all crammed into his two room Prague flat Utz is allowed to leave the country each year, and although he has considered defection, he always returns He cannot take his precious collection with him, but he cannot leave it, either And so Utz is as much owned by his porcelain as it is owned by him, as much of a prisoner of the collection as of the Communist state.A fascinating, enigmatic man, Kaspar Utz is one of Bruce Chatwin s finest creations And his story, as delicately cast as one of Utz s porcelain figures, is unforgettable.

    Chatwin s sentences are as chiseled little jewels in museum cases He s part of that wonderful tradition of chilly literary craftsmanship that counts Borges, Sebald, and Nabokov among its members.Utz is the first of Chatwin s fiction works I ve read, and it bears much in common with his travel writing To be, like, ultra lame, I would make the comparison between his prose and the Meissen porcelain he writes about, but I m not Instead, I ll say that it is brilliantly, deceptively simple He just Chatwin s sentences are as chiseled little jewels in museum cases He s part of that wonderful tradition of chilly literary craftsmanship that counts Borges, Sebald, and Nabokov among its members.Utz is the first of Chatwin s fic...

    La collezione proibita.Strano romanzo questo Utz, breve quanto intenso, multiforme e cangiante.Non avevo mai letto niente di Chatwin, ma per sentito dire o per articoli letti qua e l mi immaginavo viaggi avventurosi in terre lontane oltreoceano.Mi sono ritrovata invece a Praga, la pi misteriosa tra le citt europee , a viaggiare nella mente indecifrabile di Utz, un ricco collezionista di porcellane settecentesche della casa Meissen di Dresda di origine ...

    Una perla questo ultimo scritto di Chatwin, che ci d un idea di quanto fosse colto e curioso C anche l opportunit di imparare qualcosa sulla storia delle porcellane di Meissen, da farne buon uso nelle conversazioni al bar per stupire gli amici.
