Min Kamp 2 by Karl Ove Knausgård

By Karl Ove Knausgård

In Swedish

Andra delen av Karl Ove Knausgårds mäktiga autofiktiva roman Min kamp är en studie i extremrealism genom blottläggandet av vardagligheter, av utanförskap och av självförödmjukelsens yttersta fascination. Fadersporträttet i första delen är här utbytt mot ett kompromisslöst sökande efter kärlek och vänskap. I centrum står också det egna författarskapet och konsekvenserna av att lämna Norge för en svensk anonymitet. Hela tiden finns där den öppna blicken på den egna kärnfamiljen och faderskapet, males också på det nya hemlandet Sveriges nästintill skrattretande konformitet och konflikträdsla. Familjen och författandet ställs på så sätt mot varandra i ett försök att nå förlösning och att sträcka sig utanför sina egna begränsningar. Karl Ove Knausgård skriver en prosa som är häpnadsväckande exakt samtidigt som den hela tiden låter karaktärerna vara berättelsens medelpunkt. Trots att Min kamp aldrig låtsas vara något annat än roman finns där hela tiden en kuslig känsla av att den handlar om riktiga människor - vilket i sin tur skapat en våldsam debatt om självbiografisk prosa både i Norge och i Sverige. Oavsett vilket kan vi vara säkra på att Min kamp i framtiden kommer att stå som ett ledande exempel på nordisk romankonst i början av 2000-talet. "Knausgårds mest uppenbara styrka som författare är hans förmåga att beskriva detaljer, inte minst om naturen males även om det mänskliga psyket." long island overview of Books

Sample text

Yet of his six sons, it is this son who, in the ultimate resort, has done best even in the worldly way. This certainly should have a moral, and the moral will be underlined if I explain why my father held his opinion about me. He was fully aware of all the physical and mental limitations I had. I shall give some idea of them. First, as to my physical unfitness, I was a seven-months’ child of an ailing mother, who became worse after my birth, and could not feed me after my third month. I had to be fed on cow’s milk, which was always contaminated.

It was housed in a very impressive building along with some other military offices. The aspect was also very fine. The building stood on the Esplanade, and from its front verandah we could see the Victoria Memorial, gleaming in white marble across the Maidan. It had been originally built as the office of Lord Kitchener, when he was Commander-in-Chief in India. It had some architectural pretension, probably due to him. It had a high central block which from the front looked like a gate-house, and this block had a pediment resting on tall columns of the Etruscan order.

They were my reactions to the events I saw and the situations I had to face. Never in my life, even under the pressure of dire necessity, have I written to earn money by supplying an existing demand. On the contrary, most often I have chosen subjects in which there was no interest. For example, I could easily have made my first book a biography of Nehru. Instead, I made it the autobiography of an unknown Indian. I can guess what a biography of Nehru by me, published in 1951, could have done for me, and the reader of this book will find what my actual choice brought on me in India.
