Kompleks polski review Ó 103 Czają sobie dawne winy Drugi wątek rozgrywa się podczas Powstania Styczniowego i jest ukazany poprzez pryzmat życia Romualda Traugutta oraz Zygmunta Mineyko Typowy dla Konwickiego symbolizm i ironia są obecne również w tej książ. Ham fisted heavy handed and as unsubtle as a pick up truck with one of those stupid smog wreaking giant phallic tailpipes being driven up your anusThis one was a little disappointing coming chronologically as it does between the two other Konwicki novels I ve read both of which were great Complex lacks much of black humor and pathos and subtlety that made the other novels such successes Complex is very much in the tradition of the Iron Curtain novels of the 70s and early 80s bemoaning Soviet rule and one s constant failure to rise up against it but lacks any of Konwicki s hallmark ingenuity in making light out of the dark and dark out of the possible light

Kompleks polski review Ó 103 Powieść posiada dwa główne wątki Jeden z nich ma miejsce w kolejce do sklepu jubilerskiego w czasie lat 70 tych podczas nocy wigilijnej Bohaterowie a wśród nich sam Konwicki czekają na radzieckie obrączki zamiast których zostaj. Dear aliensIt is Christmas day and I write this while at my parents house A few moments ago I was sitting by the window which I had opened in an effort to tempt a Bengal kitten into joining the forces of evil when above me I saw a bright light and I thought of you Or should I say I thought of you in the hope that you would think of me Which means that I and this is typical of our species acknowledged your potential existence only in so much as I would like you to acknowledge my actual existence In short I wondered what you would make of me of us down here Normally I write these reviews for my fellow human beings and it is often the case that I will start with an anecdote one that relates to me and my life or past life and I think that often than not I give the impression of being haunted by the experiences I relive Which is not really the case I am simply trying to understand myselfWhen I was a kid I did not identify myself as working class or northern or even English I was I thought a child of the world not of one small part of it I considered myself wonderfully cosmopolitan And then I moved away from the north away from a true working class environment first to university and then into various jobs and I realised that I am absolutely terminally all those things that I thought I was not Let me provide you with an example While I was at college I won an award for something I wrote a little piece and the award was to be presented to me by some semi famous poet But I didn t go And the reason I didn t go although I wasn t consciously aware of it at the time is because people like me don t pick up awards they don t go schmoozing and smiling at award ceremoniesAnd the thing is no one really understands that unless they too are one of my kind they don t see how it would have been impossible to go How silly I hear that a lot You are being silly Usually it is my girlfriends who say this to me lovely lighthearted upper middle class women They cannot comprehend why I find it uncomfortable to sit around a table for family meals either Or why if someone buys me something or pays for something for me I can barely speak for shame My being is as alien to them as it probably is to you my intergalactic peeping tomsI ve written before that one of the joys of reading literature is that it makes the world seem simultaneously smaller and larger This is another reason why I share my experiences in order to be part of this phenomena Anyway I recently read The Polish Complex by Tadeusz Konwicki and I was again so pleasantly surprised that I was able to find myself in a book that one would think would have nothing to do with me for it is ostensibly about Poland and being Polish Yes the action takes place on Christmas Eve in line at a jewellery store and sure there are many people who can relate to an experience like that But that isn t what I am referring to What I found surprising and engaging about The Polish Complex is what the narrator who is essentially Konwicki the narrator is called Tadeusz Konwicki and shares many biographical details with the author says about the way that he is perceivedKonwicki states that he always attempted to steer himself towards universalities in his work that he would actively avoid criticising other nations And yet despite this approach this literary liberalism he found that he was always described as a Polish writer as in fact the most Polish of Polish writers He found like I have done that he cannot escape who he is that it infects everything he does even when he believes himself to be turning away from it and opening his arms to humanity at large Moreover it is telling that he as I am also doing here is writing for aliens for you He claims that this is because he is bored with communication with my fellow men and that might be true but what is at the heart of this boredom is that he considers himself to be or others consider him to be incomprehensible to them They readers critics etc cannot understand him unless they have had his experiences unless specifically they are Polish Indeed Konwicki shares an anecdote too about being in New York and meeting there a sickly old man with heartbreaking eyes a Polish man who was unable to die at home in Long Island because he was constantly thinking of his distant Poland and the war in which the author also participated I no longer strive to be understood I no longer depend on your approval your sympathy Now I write only because I must I do not believe that anyone will read what I write and understand it as fully as I did while struggling with the resistant constricted ephemeral words I write because some strange sense of duty impels me to this paper which in ten years will turn to dust I write because in my subconscious there stirs a spark of hope that there is something that something endures somewhere that in my last instant Great Meaning will take notice of me and save me from a universe without meaning So The Polish Complex is about identity and communication about the essential regrettable differences between people between nations Yes most countries have their own language which makes communication problematic but for Konwicki it goes deeper than that it is about the difficulty of communicating in the sphere of experience and the consciousness that comes from experience In this way writing the book for aliens is a kind of grim joke If the majority of his fellow men and women don t or can t understand Konwicki then of course you my goggle eyed grey skinned friends sure won t be able to Indeed it is amusing and ironic that almost every review of The Polish Complex that I have read has stated how alienating parts of it are how these parts won t mean anything to a potential reader unless they are Polish themselves or are a scholar or expert on Polish history Yet it is necessary to point out that the author is lamenting all this this distance between us he wants to be part of a brotherhood of man so to speak he wants us to commune with each other to be able to relate to each other appropriately and fullyIn terms of communication it is of course significant that Konwicki is a writer I am sure that people write for many reasons uite often for money it seems but certainly when I think about the act of writing what it suggests to me is a desire to communicate to reach out to people Therefore the book itself is almost another joke one Konwicki played upon himself ie he is attempting to communicate with a world that he knows in the main finds him incomprehensible Throughout The Polish Complex the narrator references his work or other characters do and on each occasion these comments are critical His writing he is told by Kojran is poison than passion It is bitter defeatist sad sarcastic Kojran also asks why Konwicki doesn t write something to give the Polish people strength rather than make them sadder than they already are Kojran is an interesting character because he is in a sense Konwicki s conscience in fact most of the characters play this role in the text Their function is to allow the author to explore his feelings and what he thinks are the public s feelings about his books Of course you might label this rather self indulgent or egotistical but it is clear to me that Konwicki took his responsibility as someone for whom the rest of the world might view as representative of Poles in general seriously A ueue in Poland a common sight in the shortage economy in the 1970s and 1980sThe Polish coat of arms features a white eagle on a red background Apparently this is because the founder of the country saw a white eagle s nest and decided to settle in that place However the eagle is or has become also representative of freedom and certainly this the notion of freedom plays an important role in the book and in fact in the history of Poland First of all when Konwicki states that he no longer wishes to be understood he is appealing to just that the freedom to do as he likes and not worry about other people s reactions to be creative one has to feel free More importantly Poland was for a long time under the control of Russia There were during this period attempts to gain independence including The January Uprising of 1863 to which Konwicki devotes around forty pages of The Polish Complex After WW2 Poland was forced to join the Eastern Bloc to become a kind of Soviet satellite state under the control of Joseph Stalin It wasn t until 1989 years after this book was published that Soviet control over Poland ceased Therefore it is no surprise that as previously mentioned Konwicki gives over so many pages of his book to The January Uprising because the fight or the desire for freedom or independence is of course part of the Polish identity or was in 1977 at least It is also no surprise that he takes freuent and not so subtle digs at the Russians or the Russian presence in Poland most notably when instead of jewellery it is samovars that are delivered to the store Indeed one lucky person wins a trip to Russia with his purchaseAs with many novels written by earth men of a certain generation the worst aspect of The Polish Complex is the ludicrous sex scene that takes place between the narrator and a much younger they are always much younger woman I don t know how you would feel about it my space pals but I had a hard time getting on board with the inter generational nookie It just seemed incongruous or out of place in a novel so impassioned and intelligent I do not want an author to be making my chest beat with sardonic rants about national identity one moment and then waffling on about nipples the next This is not to say however that this scene cannot be justified One must bear in mind that Konwicki the narrator is old very ill and eager to die and that he has admitted to feeling a kind of sentimentality for his homeland and for his youth So this young woman is in a sense a kind of memory a living memory is a last taste of his own youth or of the purest joys that life can throw up Moreover as noted the action takes place on Christmas Eve a time of miracles Konwicki openly declares that he is looking for a miracle and taking that into account one might even doubt whether the liaison is even meant to have actually taken place or if it did then the author is at least acknowledging that it is a unlikely miraculous eventAndwell that s it Oh sure I could write it is always possible to write but I feel as though it is unnecessary I am done I hope this has been instructional or entertaining my bulb headed amigos Certainly I feel better Because that s the thing even if someone doesn t understand you it is still good to get things off your chest to at least try to make sense of yourself and to at least try to make a connection no matter how tenuous or doomed to failure it isYours sincerelyPPsMerry Christmas Or Alienmas Or whatever

Kompleks polski review Ó 103 ą przywiezione samowary z losami Losy te dają możliwość wyjazdu do ZSRR Konwicki omdlewa i zostaje przeniesiony na zaplecze sklepu gdzie bliżej poznaje uroczą ekspedientkę Jak to zazwyczaj bywa w noc wigilijną bohaterowie przeba. I rather enjoyed this odd little book which plays around and you can never be 100% sure what is fiction and what is autobiographical as the main character often uses the author s own name First published in 1977 and set in the Poland of that time the main story centres on a group of Poles ueuing for gifts from a jewelery store whilst they wait for a delivery of what they hope will be what they want Although it is set after WWII there are hints of it all the time ueuing was a typical scene in the Poland of the communist era and it paints it with bizarre touches and humour But interwoven in this are two historical parts about failed uprisings against Russian rule in the 19th century It captures something of the Polish mindset at least of that time Communism fell in 1989 over 30 years ago so it is a reflection of that time not modern Poland But it captures that sense of bravery humour fatalism hope and hopelessness of those decades
