BERNARDO ATXAGA OBABAKOAK PDF

Oct 04, Michael rated it really liked it Though tagged a novel, Obabakoak is better described as a series of fictions, tied together only by their setting in the village of Obaba. But each separate story is lovingly told, and the whole comes together to give the reader a great sense of place. Atxaga also runs certain themes throughout the book, with different apparitions through the various fictions, that come together also to give the book that sense of wholeness not present in certain collections of stories. At its heart, I think Though tagged a novel, Obabakoak is better described as a series of fictions, tied together only by their setting in the village of Obaba.

At its heart, I think Obabakoak is less a temple to the people of Obaba than it is to the act of storytelling itself. Common themes include the roundabout ways that people come to tell stories, the interruptions to stories being told sometimes with other stories , and the simple human struggle to communicate and express.

There is a significant portion of the book dedicated to what one might construe as literary theory, using both fictions and plain statements from characters to explain to the reader about the values that surround storytelling and how we decide what makes for a good story. The examination of storytelling that remains central throughout the book also allows Atxaga to weave casual fantasies into his reality--a very subtle mystical realism--which blend is also a common presence in any storytelling traditions.

This is not a book filled with overpowering emotions. And, to its credit, there are no bad guys or good guys. It is, instead, a much softer literary being, gently and subtly touching the reader much the way we would come to expect from the people of Obaba , and always offering its characters the opportunity for self-redemption.

I think it is one I will read from again and again.
