Set in the mythical Polish village of Primeval, a microcosm of the world populated by eccentric, archetypal characters and guarded by four archangels, the novel chronicles the lives of the inhabitants over the course of the feral 20th century in prose that is forceful, direct, and the stylistic cousin of the magic realism in Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude. Told in short bursts of "Time," the narrative takes the form of a stylized fable, an epic allegory about the inexorable grind of time and the clash between modernity (the masculine) and nature (the feminine) in which Poland's tortured political history from 1914 to the contemporary era and the episodic brutality visited on ordinary village life is played out. A novel of universal dimension that does not dwell on the parochial, Primeval and Other Times was awarded the Koscielski Foundation Prize in 1997, which established Tokarczuk as one of the leading voices in Polish letters. It has been translated into many languages throughout the world and hailed as a contemporary European classic. -- Tokarczuk has said of the novel: "I always wanted to write a book such as this. One that creates and describes a world. It is the story of a world that, like all things living, is born, develops, and then perishes." Kitchens, bedrooms, childhood memories, dreams and insomnia, reminiscences, and amnesia -- these are part of the existential and acoustic spaces from which the voices of Tokarczuk's tale come, her "boxes in boxes."… (altro)

I had already read House of Day, House of Night by Olga Tokarczuk and liked it very much. The same kind of form happens in Primeval, where we are given stories about common people, millers, housewives, in a small village . Their stories are divided into "Times" and given a mythological quality in the telling. In the background, or around them, we would read too about the larger workings of history, the Nazis, the Wars. But the main thrust of the book is still very much about presenting history from the common person, not a big-man/official/objective telling of history.

What I liked most was probably how the common, the banal stories were written with such grandiose that seems contrary to the people the stories were coming from. Also always enjoy Olga's ponderings and renderings of religious (in the Christian tradition usually) thought & myths. Within the story, there is a "game" where she introduces 7 different kinds of worlds where God manifests or exists differently. It's one of my favourite parts of the book. ( )

Oer en andere tijden. Door: Olga Tokarczuk.

“Winnaar Nobelprijs Literatuur” prijkt op de cover van dit prachtige boek. Laat je dat niet tegenhouden. Ik had een beetje schrik om aan Jaag je ploeg over de botten van de doden te beginnen maar sinds ik dat geweldige boek uit heb ben ik fan van Olga en kon ik niet wachten om haar andere boeken te lezen.

Oer en andere tijden bestaat uit 247 pagina’s kleine lettertjes. Als je al die lettertjes hebt gelezen ben je triest omdat je Oer en haar bewoners moet verlaten, het hadden gerust 1247 pagina’s mogen zijn. Oer valt amper met iets te vergelijken, als ik het toch moet doen zou ik het als volgt doen. Aan fervente lezeres zou ik zeggen dat het wat weg heeft van Hamnet van Maggie O’Farrell: je stapt in een wereld die soms sprookjesachtig, magisch realistisch aanvoelt, die je op een zinnelijke manier helemaal omhult en vult. Aan de mensen die meer tv kijken dan lezen zou ik zeggen dat het wat wegheeft van Twin Peaks: je gaat deel uitmaken van een gemeenschap, elk personage komt uitgebreid aan bod met zijn of haar bijzondere eigenaardigheden. Alles en iedereen bepaalt mee de sfeer: ook de natuur en de dieren.

Oer en ander tijden geeft je een fascinerende, verslavende inkijk in het leven van een gebied in Polen waar bijna alles anders is dan hier en toch bijna alles hetzelfde is. Toch voor de mensen die hun ogen en hart willen, durven openen. Van de zomer van 1914, tot de tijd van Adelka, meer dan 2 oorlogen later hang je aan de lippen van Tokarczuk die een meesterverteller is. De (tragische) Poolse geschiedenis op individueel mensformaat/dorpsformaat. Dit is het lievelingsboek van de vertaler Karol Lesman, voor mij behoort het ook zeker tot mijn favorietenlijst. Die Nobelprijs kwam geen dag te vroeg. ( )

Tämä oli erikoinen aikuisten satu. Välillä surullinen, välillä karmiva, harvoin iloinen. En ihan kiinnittynyt tähän, tuntui pakkopullalta. ( )

This is an intriguingly unusual book, and not one I feel I understood well enough to review adequately. It is an allegorical modern fairy tale set in a Polish village as it is subjected to the vagaries of twentieth century history. Tokarczuk's vision has a creator God at its centre, but one who has lost much of his power, and the whole thing is suffused with a rather surreal folklorish atmosphere. ( )

For me, it’s rare for an author of fiction to accomplish “soul-touch,” but Olga Tokarczuk does just that with her captivating spiritual imagery and layers of characters that touch the heart-depths of readers’ imaginations. Primeval and Other Times is an award winning novel (first published in the 1990s) that takes place in a mystical Polish village guarded by four archangels through the 20th century.
