Мартел, Янн

Дата рождения: 25. Июнь 1963
Другие имена: Янн Мартел, یان مارتل

Янн Мартел — канадский писатель, автор сборника коротких рассказов и романа «Я сам» . Обе книги публиковались в разных странах и получили благоприятные отзывы критиков, но не имели такого успеха, какой был уготован его роману «Жизнь Пи» , удостоенному Букеровской премии за 2002 год.

„Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud…“

—  Yann Martel, книга Life of Pi

Источник: Life of Pi (2001), Chapter 1, p. 6
Контексте: The reason death sticks so closely to life isn't biological necessity — it's envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud.

„You want dry, yeastless factuality.“

—  Yann Martel, книга Life of Pi

Источник: Life of Pi (2001), Chapter 99, p. 336
Контексте: I know what you want. You want a story that won't surprise you. That will confirm what you already know. That won't make you see higher or further or differently. You want a flat story. An immobile story. You want dry, yeastless factuality.

„Nothing beats reason for keeping tigers away. But be excessively reasonable and you risk throwing out the universe with the bathwater.“

—  Yann Martel, книга Life of Pi

Источник: Life of Pi (2001), Chapter 99, pp. 330–331
Контексте: I applied my reason at every moment. Reason is excellent for getting food, clothing and shelter. Reason is the very best tool kit. Nothing beats reason for keeping tigers away. But be excessively reasonable and you risk throwing out the universe with the bathwater.

„I survived because I forgot even the very notion of time.“

—  Yann Martel, книга Life of Pi

Источник: Life of Pi (2001), Chapter 63, p. 212
Контексте: I did not count the days or the weeks or the months. Time is an illusion that only makes us pant. I survived because I forgot even the very notion of time.

„Colonialism is a terrible bane for a people upon whom it is imposed, but a blessing for a language.“

—  Yann Martel

Источник: Beatrice & Virgil (2010), p. 23
Контексте: Colonialism is a terrible bane for a people upon whom it is imposed, but a blessing for a language. English's drive to exploit the new and the alien, its zeal in robbing words from other languages, its incapacity to feel qualms over the matter, its museum-size overabundance of vocabulary, its shoulder-shrug approach to spelling, its don't-worry-be-happy concern for grammar—the result was a language whose colour and wealth Henry loved. In his entirely personal experience of [languages], English was jazz music, German was classical music, French was ecclesiastical music, and Spanish was music from the streets. Which is to say, stab his heart and it would bleed French, slice his brain open and its convolutions would be lined with English and German, and touch his hands and they would feel Spanish.

„Already then something was lost forever, a basic trust.“

—  Yann Martel

Источник: Beatrice & Virgil (2010), p. 175
Контексте: I remember the first slap, just as I was being brought in. Already then something was lost forever, a basic trust. If there's an exquisite collection of Meissen porcelain and a man takes a cup and deliberately drops it to the floor, shattering it, why wouldn't he then proceed to break everything else? What difference does it make, cup or tureen, once the man has made clear his disregard for porcelain? With that first blow, something akin to porcelain shattered in me. It was a hard slap, forceful yet casual, given for no reason, before I had even identified myself. If they would do that to me, why wouldn't they do worse? Indeed, how could they stop themselves? A single blow is a dot, meaningless. It's a line that is wanted, a connection between the dots that will give purpose and direction. One blow demands a second and then a third and onwards.

„I was weeping because Richard Parker left me so unceremoniously.“

—  Yann Martel, книга Life of Pi

Источник: Life of Pi (2001), Chapter 94, p. 316
Контексте: I was weeping because Richard Parker left me so unceremoniously. What a terrible thing it is to botch the farewell. I am a person who believes in form, in the harmony of order. Where we can, we must give things meaningful shape.

„It was a hard slap, forceful yet casual, given for no reason, before I had even identified myself. If they would do that to me, why wouldn't they do worse? Indeed, how could they stop themselves?“

„To my mind, faith is like being in the sun. When you are in the sun, can you avoid creating a shadow?“

—  Yann Martel

Источник: Beatrice & Virgil (2010), p. 103
Контексте: To my mind, faith is like being in the sun. When you are in the sun, can you avoid creating a shadow? Can you shake that area of darkness that clings to you, always shaped like you, as if constantly to remind you of yourself? You can't. This shadow is doubt. And it goes wherever you go as long as you stay in the sun. And who wouldn't want to be in the sun?
