The naive and the sentimental novelist pdf
The Naive and the Sentimental Novelist — Orhan Pamuk | Harvard University PressT he Nobel prize-winner's book of reflections on art and life is the high-culture equivalent of the celebrity fragrance such as Katy Perry's Purr. The drawback for the laureate is having to write it him- or herself rather than relying on boffins and marketeers, but the similarities are striking. Sometimes the book makes sense, sometimes the fragrance achieves a distinctive balance of notes, but this outcome is largely accidental and may not make a difference in the marketplace. The academy in Stockholm or the breakthrough video, as the case may be makes these productions possible in commercial terms, but nothing can make them necessary. This podium is not the natural home of wittering, though wittering is mainly what Orhan Pamuk delivers.

D o novelists know who their readers are? The question hovers over both of these engaging, brilliant, occasionally irritating books, the first by Umberto Eco , author of the hugely successful The Name of the Rose , the second by Orhan Pamuk , Nobel laureate and author of My Name Is Red , translated into 60 languages. The studies derive from recent lectures given by these celebrated writers at Harvard and Emory universities. Pamuk's The Naive and the Sentimental Novelist is charming, self-regarding, dreamy and repetitive, so that each single chapter is better than the whole. For him, "naive" denotes a spontaneous, self-confident writer composing as if "dictated to by nature or God", while "sentimental" suggests an uneasy, self-conscious one, aware of his craft. Like so many other celebrated contemporaries — Martin Amis and Sebastian Faulks among them — Pamuk is concerned with the public's habit of regarding novels as autobiographical.
