I loved this trilogy so much So evocative Throughout the series I wanted to transport myself to the time and space Really beautiful I will definitely read these books again. Stunning, just as good as the two first After finishing it, I felt strangely lost to part with Balint and Adrienne and all the others felt like saying goodbye to good friends This whole series deserve far credit, and a natural place in the canon of great literature.

Se puede decir que el libro est formado por dos partes diferenciadas los acontecimientos pol ticos de Hungr a y la vida de dos primos pertenecientes a la aristocracia h ngara Escrito de una manera que recuerda a Zweig sin llegar a la calidad de ste , nos introducimos en la sociedad transilvana de principios del siglo XX Las largas fiestas de la incansable aristocracia h ngara, las penurias de los trabajadores rumanos que tambi n sufren abusos de sus propias gentes , los debates pol ticos que discurrieron, la marcha como son mbulos de una sociedad hacia su propia autodestrucci n.A m parecer hay tres fallos en la novela largas e in tiles descripciones, no hay un buen manejo del tiempo en la obra una noche dura 100 p ginas y 4 meses unas l neas , la trama de los dos primos es bastante floja, especialmente en lo relacionado a sus vidas amorosas Se echa en falta la mano de un buen editor A pesar de ello, en ning n momento me aburr con ella aunque si afecto a mi manera de identificarme con los protagonistas.B nffy es muy cr tico con la clase pol tica de la que l mismo form parte A veces de manera sutil, otras m s directas, y a trav s de su alter ego B lint, el autor cr tica la ceguera de los principales l deres y partidos h ngaros, m s centrados en sus shows medi ticos que en solucionar problemas teniendo consecuencias fatales para el devenir de la Monarqu a Tambi n es duro con los dirigentes austriacos, a los que califica de vivir en un mundo de fantas a, y a los rumanos, que buscaban cualquier posici n que les hiciera ganar importancia en un posible conflicto incluso a costa de sus compatriotas Aunque sean precisos ciertos conocimientos b sicos sobre el Imperio austroh ngaro para seguir a B nffy, esta parte est escrita notablemente, cobrando mayor protagonismo seg n nos acercamos a 1914.En resumen, es un libro ameno, interesante, perfecto para quienes buscan ver c mo era la sociedad transilvana en el imperio a principios del siglo XX Si buscas una novela cuya trama te deje clavado a la silla, ste no lo es. I wish I could write like this writer I never thought that one could enjoy description of such simple things like forest, river, trees and meadows Even without sunrises and sun sets, if you know what I mean It was truly a pleasure to read The book ends with the murder in Sarajevo and we will never know how the main character would go through the hell of the WWI We are left with hope as we know that the book is based on personal memories.. My favorite passage from the book Abady descended the path at his own pace The city s myriad lights glowed down in the valley and for a moment Abady found himself almost blinded by the arc lights of the station at the foot of the hill For a moment or two he paused to gaze at the beauty of the great spread of tiny lights in the dark night and, as he stopped, he was thinking what a strange man Tamas Laczok was he knew so much, he was filled with esoteric knowledge, he had gazed at wide horizons and not been dazzled, and he was also a man of culture and refinement But he had used none of it he had just let it go to waste, burying himself here in a ramshackle cottage with a little gypsy whore, and yet he showed all the signs of being a happy man.Balint thought of poor Gazsi Kadacsay, who had killed himself in despair because he could not acquire what Count Tamas had carelessly tossed away He wondered if Gazsi s fate would have been different if he had managed to learn all that Tamas had learned and would Laczok be so carefree and merry if, with all his knowledge, he had not abandoned his origins and turned his back on power and worldly success Was it some inborn wisdom that had given him the strength to throw all that away, or would he have been just as happy if fate had not made him leave his own country and go away to learn about the world elsewhere Would he have been as jovial and contented if he had merely stayed at home, living in idleness and easy ignorance Was a man formed by his experience or by his natural talents Can a man only give up calmly what he is already sure of possessing, and never what he has vainly longed to acquire Part II, Chapter 5 They Were Divided provides a fascinating eyewitness account of the last years leading up to WW1 from the point of view of Hungary, specifically Transylvania There is also a fictional story about the travails of a set of aristocratic families over several generations and a love story Some of the fictional pieces are slice of life gems that reflect both character and social s Others, including the love story of the main character, are less compelling However, both as history and literature this is a unique and valuable work Very readable and thought provoking.It is the third volume of the Transylvanian trilogy and I intend to go back to read the first two. For my previous two reviews in this series I have churned out over 2500 words and so as I come to write the third and final review I find myself at something of a loss What can I say about Miklos Banffy s Transylvanian Trilogy that I haven t already said Not a lot, it seems It doesn t help that They Were Divided is much shorter than the two preceding volumes Indeed, while all three follow on, volumes one and two did feel, in some way, like separate entities They dealt with markedly different stages in the lives of the main characters and each unfolded at a different pace This one, however, does not feel distinct in fact, it feels odd that it stands alone.As befitting the concluding volume of a series, the one thing that does stand out about They Were Divided is the increased atmosphere of decline and destruction that hangs over it As noted previously, the real title of the whole work is The Writing On The Wall and that makes most sense in relation to the book under review here First of all, there is destruction on what I will call a local level i.e amongst the inhabitants of the novel, within their families etc There have been deaths in the preceding two volumes but there are of them in They Were Divided and, unlike before, it is major characters that are struck down There is, in the book, a very real sense of things coming to an end, of the end of an era, so to speak, and this means that it is the most moving of the three volumes.In addition to the deaths of certain beloved characters there is also the prospect of large scale death on an international level The timespan of the trilogy is 1904 to 1914 I don t think you have to be a historian to know what the significance of the date 1914 is The reality of what is happening in the world outside of the communities we have been so focused on becomes apparent in They Were Divided it can no longer be ignored Indeed, it was always the case that the narrative was moving towards destruction, towards, specifically, war Yet it is easy for the reader to lose sight of that, to put it to the back of your mind it is easy to become so engrossed in what is happening between, and to, these charming, interesting characters and to therefore not recognise the full significance of what is taking place in the world at large It s a neat trick, because that is exactly the same mindset that the majority of the characters have they are so taken up with their own dramas, their own fun and games, that they are unaware of just how quickly they are hurtling towards, well, extinction or certainly the end of life as they know it.Now that I have read the entire thing my opinion of some of what came before this final instalment has altered somewhat I loved the first volume, almost without reservation, but I was far less enamoured with the second A few of those reservations, however, seem less serious upon reflection The drop off in drama, the slowing of the pace in They Were Found Wanting now seems necessary, for an entire 1500 pages of the kind of intensity that They Were Counted provided would perhaps have been too much Further, Balint, who I previously called a non entity, takes on something of a heroic edge by the end of They Were Divided His simple minded goodness, his strong values and sense of honour were always admirable, but not particularly interesting However, he is one of the few, if not the only, character who is not so self absorbed as to not see what is coming and there is something, for me, incredibly moving about the idea of one man, surrounded by jovial but ignorant people, who has his eyes open and turned towards a world that is set to burn There was nothing to see but ice and snow, only ice and snow, a petrified world were there could be no life Ice everywhere, like the frozen inferno of Dante s seventh hell Even the sky seemed carved from ice, clean, majestic and implacable and even the stars held no mercy.In front rose the ink black outline of the Matterhorn, seeming than ever like a claw, Satan s claw, reaching for the Heavens The great peak was no longer a natural pyramid of rock but rather some fatal, razor sharp milestone threatening death to the sky above a milestone that pointed to the end of the world So, ultimately, despite its flaws I still can t accept the repetition , The Transylvanian Trilogy is a large hearted, beautiful novel, which may not, contrary to the hype, stand shoulder to shoulder with War Peace, but is well worth the considerable time that is required in order to read it The Transylvanian TrilogyPart 1 They Were Counted They Were Found Wanting rating In the midst of my obsession with Jane Smiley, I listened to an interview with her where she recommended the Transylvanian Trilogy I had no other connection to the author or the setting In fact, I generally have trouble with Great Novels, as they tend to start feeling like eating your vegetables But The Transylvanian Trilogy was a true delight, a Great Novel that really worked for me as a riveting story.Miklos Banffy was a count and politician in Hungary for many years, and he writes about pre war Hungary with deep familiarity and a powerfully specific memory The trilogy, which covers the years from 1904 until the outbreak of World War I, conveys a powerful feeling of a world lost to time However, Banffy is as interested in condemning the elite of his generation as he is in recreating the world of his childhood and at the same time his warm hearted characterizations make it hard to truly dismiss most of the people that he also wants to condemn A comparison with Jean Renoir, and specifically the film The Rules of the Game, seems appropriate at this point The world of the trilogy is in many ways strange to modern eyes, but even at its most absurd and Banffy is hilarious on the subject of dueling , the world feels lived in.What really made the trilogy work so well for me was Banffy s tonal mastery, mixing gothic suspense, psychological drama, political polemic, comedy of manners, and a powerful affection for the land into a rich emotional experience Okay, I could have lost a bit of the political polemic, but only just a bit The personal struggles of Balint Abady, in love with a married woman, and Laszlo Gyoffery, the self destructive composer, were as real and immediate to me as any contemporary novel.At the same time, as the trilogy concludes it takes on this larger melancholy Banffy conjures into being a whole world of honor and self destruction, gentility and hypocrisy, unrequited love and remarkable myopia, with a large cast of characters that you remember and feel for And then it turns out as you always knew a little bit, but were trying to ignore that they re all marching blind to their doom.The Transylvanian Trilogy is remarkable I finished reading it than two weeks ago, and the experience of reading it is still with me now I would recommend it in a heartbeat.
