Whether you like to read Pelevin?Victor Pelevin in the last 10 - 15 years became not just popular writer, and,
is rather, even cult. Books are sold out in considerable circulations, not unsuccessful
attempt of the screen version “Generation P“ is made, argue on it, it is loved and at the same time
misunderstand. And misunderstanding gives rise to rejection. Denial. What did the writer given
cause such resonance in minds of readers?
The factors explaining Pelevin`s popularity, a little.
The first and most important - you understand what the author writes about, or do not understand,
but, it is necessary to recognize, literary talent at Pelevin huge. It has the
style and this style is unique, at once it is recognized! Though, it also caused attacks from those,
who does not understand ideas in Victor Olegovich`s works at all. Attacks up to
charge of inability to write... Nevertheless, promotion in 2012 of Pelevin on
Nobel Prize on literature (along with Yevgeny Yevtushenko) speaks for itself...
Not to take away literary gift from Pelevin.
The following factor is that all works of Pelevin are constructed on - around,
near - a zen the Buddhism! And the zen the Buddhism - as well as other east religions -
is attractive that it does not try to make of the adherents guilty, to impart them
constant feeling of inferiority. Agree, it is comfortable for psychology individuma not to feel guilty (if you do not do the harm to people around, certainly).
Therefore, Pelevin`s characters for orthodox beliefs can look
immoral or, at least, abnormal. And at it they quite comfortably
live, love people around and themselves, find that and that lose... Cheerfully, easily and
Stern of that, Pelevin also gifted artist of the word! It expresses to
the ideas in each work by different paints, lips of different characters. Easier to say, telling
constantly about one, the author does it very different. Chapayev and Petka
Pustota, Columns T, Vavilen Tatar, sisters Akhuli and Ikhuli, Batman and Appolo...
Characters are bright, different and convincing. Events and a situation in whom
actions of works of Pelevin develop are also various and are not banal.
In additives to it it should be noted magnificent sense of humour of Victor
Olegovich...) )) Sometimes and black, but humour! What only should be taken for names
of governors of the name of Dyureks and Konteks (novel “Snaff“)...
In end of a small response - opinions on Pelevin should be told, likely, and about
the fact that the behavior and lifestyle of the author add a considerable share of interest
to it among admirers. It is almost full closeness from public - the Maestro can
is easy not be on the presentation of own book or an award... Someone
will tell that it is bad manners... In it there is an unwillingness to accept all this secular
establishment... Such position often and openly expresses the author in
works = here to you, so to say, a zen the Buddhism shown “on fingers“...
It is charismatic and safely! Someone will put for it 5 balls! Someone will call this
shocking, pi the course and we designate are... Though, in estimates Pelevin, I think, needs
least of all. He knows who is he that does, as well as why...
“All this world is a joke which the Lord told himself“ - in
this quote all Pelevin... Read - and your point of assembly will go to
travel!!! The travel giving a lot of interesting and fascinating!
