    One thought on “Skugga-Baldur”

    1. 'I have seen the universe, it is made of poems.'‘All things change—nothing perishes.’ – OvidIt always astonishes me when a book can create a vast amount of power and meaning out of such little story and length. Set amid the snow and ice of an Icelandic winter, Sjón’s The Blue Fox, winner of the 2005 Nordic Council Literature Prize, is as still and quiet as a coffin yet holds a horrific truth inside. Sjón masterfully laces two stories together, one of Reverend Baldur’s fateful hunt [...]

    2. jeff vandermeer's drawing of the cover:the first sentence of the book’s description on the back cover of my copy is:Set against the stark backdrop of the Icelandic winter, an elusive, enigmatic fox leads a hunter on a transformative quest.which is itself an elusive, vague sentence, but it is also the most cheekily appropriate summary; one you don’t really appreciate until after you’ve read the book. which you should do. because i’m not sure how to review this responsibly, without giving [...]

    3. Transformation.I was getting worried in my own way. I had finished two books and written reviews for neither, started on a third, was reading test pages from a fourth (view spoiler)[Sommerregen der Liebe !(hide spoiler)], and had taken receipt of a fifth (view spoiler)[ see below(hide spoiler)] which was dauntingly longer than I had expected - but with the unexpected potential benefit of being able to use it as a foot stool, when in the middle of doing a task that no-one else could do for me I w [...]

    4. أعجبتني أجواء الرواية والغموض الذي يسري في كلماتها وتفاصيلها رواية تنبض بالتشويق والغموض،، كما أنها لاتخلو من رؤى فلسفية وبعض الخرافات التي كانت بمثابة حجر الاساس التي بنيت عليه الروايةلا يمكنك ان تستمتع بالرواية أذا لم تصب تركيزك فيه وتغوص في أجواء الجبال الايسلندية والث [...]

    5. Hmm. I bought this just because it sounded interesting, and it made me remember why I stopped doing that. The synopsis was better than the book. There were so many characters with different names that it got confusing, the format was discombobulated, it was pretty hard to understand and in general I just didn't understand the cohesiveness or significance of any of the events. I was glad it was short, and even more glad that I was able to finish it quickly. I wouldn't recommend this one unless yo [...]

    6. A Self-Righteous AsideSearching for images of a Blue Fox is disturbing. Here is a non-disturbing picture:but for just about every photo of fox in the wild, there is a creepy drawing of cartoonish blue vixen with big boobs, or even worse pictures of fattened and depressed looking foxes being kept in cages awaiting their murder for their fur, dead foxes having been killed for their fur, or well the end result of their murder. Now murder might be a harsh word, and some people believe fur is right t [...]

    7. This Icelandic novella set in the late 19th century, is part historical fiction, part folktale or fantasy (that blue fox does some amazing things), part morality tale in recounting a two-fold story of the Reverend-hunter and Herbalist Fridrik. Also integral is Abba, or Hafdis, a young woman with Downs, who lives with Fridrik. Their story is the warm heart of this tale.There is also some beautiful, and sometimes humorous, prose.The night was cold and of the longer variety. (p 14)The rim of daylig [...]

    8. Ovo je lijep i poetičan, kratak roman, ali bio bi još i bolji da je duljeg formata. Taman kad sam se uživjela u knjigu, pohvatala likove i surovi islandski krajolik, puf, kraj. Pa sad ne znam, jedna od onih knjiga kojima bi istovremeno dala i 1 i 5, što me prilično frustrira. Pa zato zlatna sredina.

    9. بعيدا مع الثعلب الأزرق!هفي سهوب آيسلاندا القاسية و المكسوة بثلوج شتاء قاتم، كان هناك صياد يلاحق ثعلبة زرقاءهبينما في قرية آيسلاندية عشّاب يقوم بتحضير جنازة لفتاة مصابة ببلاهة منغولية كان يرعاها مذ عـُـثر عليها مقيدة قبل سنين في سفينة ضخمة مهجورة جنحت للشاطئ ذات عاصفةههاتا [...]

    10. Kraj 19.-og stoljeća,Island,svećenik,djevojčica s Downom,snijeg i Plava lisica.Ima sve elemente da roman bude zanimljiv.Dobitnik vrijedne književne nagrade Nordijskog vijeća i preveden na 33 jezika.Malo stranica i puno literarne ljepote.Moje preporuke za zimske dane

    11. "Evreni gördüm! Şiirden yapılmış!" Kuzeyi haliyle soğuğu ve sadeliği sevenlere özellikle hitap edecek, flashback - flashfoward'lı umduğumdan çok daha güzel bir kitaptı Mavi Tilki.Farklı kültür ve coğrafyalara değinen kitapları zaten seviyorum da, ölmeden önce yapılacaklar listemin ilk sıralarında Kuzey Işıklarını görmek olunca insan kitabı böyle bağrına basmak istiyor cidden. Bilmiyorum ben çok sevdim ama herkese hitap edeceğini düşünmüyorum.

    12. آيسلندا فضاء جديد على قراءاتي،لكنها على ما يبدو موطن شون لذا متعلقة بذاكرته .رواية صغيرة لها بعد خرافي . أحببت بشكل شخصي جدا جدا"أبّا"لأنها تعاني متلازمة داون. متلازمة أطفال الكرامات والبركات من الله

    13. Tendo como cenário a gélida e luminosa Islândia da segunda metade do século XIX, assistimos ao desfile de vidas humanas marcadas pela perda, pela salvação, pela temeridade, pelo abandono, pelo horror.Abba…A maior prova do domínio da natureza sobre o homem, é esta permitir que o homem se convença que pode conversar com uma raposa azul sobre electricidade impunemente. O homem pode apanhá-la desprevenida mas no fim, é ela que dele se apodera (ou será o regresso do homem ao seu estado [...]

    14. Lielisks apliecinājums tam, ka mazāk ir vairāk.Zvaigznēm ir vienalga, kam viņas spīd - svētajiem, slepkavām, nevainojamajiem baltajiem cilvēkiem vai pamuļķiem. Vai lapsām.Interesantas eksistenciālas pārdomas rosinošs stāsts koncentrētā formā ar Islandes skaisto, bet skarbo dabu otrā plāna lomā. Tik koncentrēts, ka tā pa īstam par to neko nevar stāstīt, citādi uzreiz maiteklis sanāk.

    15. Katra rindkopa kā glezna.Fantastiski.Baudāmi.Un Tu esi Islandē.Un mistikā, un ziemā, ledū, ielejās un sniegā, un apdomājot, vai caur spuldzi, elektrībai cauri, mājās ienāk Dievs.Vai arī - esi ēnu lapsa.Izcils tulkojums.

    16. "U tvom svijetu možda ovo ne bi bila velika vijest, ali ovdje jest: jedna je žena umrla, a jedan je čovjek nestao". Kratak roman o maloj zajednici sa mjestom radnje negdje na rubu svijeta davne 1883.g. na Islandudna žena sa Downovim sindromom, jedan svećenik, lov na rijetku plavu lisicu i puno onog po čemu je Sjon postao drugačiji u pripovijedanju. Sve mi je tek na kraju postalo milije. Preporuka!

    17. I was toying with giving this novel a four star rating, but further thought brought it down to a three. Enchanting as it is poetic — even if in a darkly fashion — Sjón is exquisite in both his writing and style. I did not expect such a superb, thrilling read. From the beginning I was hooked by the intensity of scenes due to the sheer focus on detail and the craft of such isolated happenings in an incredibly affective way. I commend the author for such an enrapturing ride and the ability to [...]

    18. I have a flu and it's very cold where I live now. Yet, I still need to go to work and this short book was perfect to read during these hectic times.The beginning of "The Blue Fox" reminded me a lot of "The Old Man & The Sea". We encounter a man trying to hunt down a blue fox. However, then the story changes and is about a woman with down syndrome who was found on a shipwreck. The last part of the book has a magical undertone - the fox comes back to life after being hunted and the conclusion [...]

    19. عندما تمتزج الأساطير الشعبية الايسلندية بفلسفة روائي مثل شون لا تتوقع أنك ستفهمها من القرأة الأولى ، هي وجبة دسمة تأكل على مهل مع ايقاع هادئ بسيط بلغة شاعرية مع اقتباض في كلماتها الا انها تحمل تعقيدا يجعلك تعيد الجملة مرة و مرتين لتفهم مبتغاه ، رواية الثعلب الازرق التاسعة في [...]

    20. it's curious the ways in which a novel that doesn't otherwise astound us can still have more of a lingering effect than those that so effortlessly do. sjón's the blue fox (skugga-baldur) is a novella set in late 19th century iceland concerning the fates of three individuals (or four, if you count that of the eponymous canine). as an icelandic novelist and poet, it is nearly inevitable that sjón would garner comparisons to nobel laureate and countryman halldór laxness, given that he is one of [...]

    21. Ilustração de Raffi Andrian“A Raposa Azul” do islandês Sjón, diminutivo de Sigurjón B. Sigurðsson (n. 1962), ganhou o “Nordic Council´s Literary Prize” em 2005.Um romance curto – 107 páginas – repleto de intensidade e magia, numa escrita poética e enigmática, para ouvir ao som da música de Bjork. “A noite era fria e do tipo mais longo.” (Pág. 19)“O sol aquece o corpo branco com um crepitar hesitante, pode bem ser o cântico dos pássaros.” (Pág. 23)“Um pássaro [...]

    22. There are short novels that are perfect in their shortness. Of Mice and Men, We Have Always Lived in the Castle: the top contenders for perfect short novel.This is a good short novel that could be a perfect long novel. In fact, it's a short story masquerading as a novel which should be a long novel which could be perfect.The Blue Fox begins with a deceptively simple mini-story (the word "fable" here is almost unavoidable) of a hunter on the trail of a mythical, possibly magical, blue fox. Then t [...]

    23. Pequenino mas concentrado com frases muito bonitas e de grande qualidade. Um romance que te transporta para outro tempo e para outra paisagem. Gostei da onda mística do livro.

    24. This short novel brings the reader to a magical realm of snow, a blue fox, and a stubborn hunter combined with a big dose of history and fate. It has so much potential, but I felt as if Sjon failed in his enterprise and ultimately produced a brief, pretentious novel that brings up so many interesting story lines in a draft format. Ultimately, the first part of the novel is the best one as we get to experience a silent hunt through the snow. The remainder of the story ties up historical connectio [...]

    25. Sept 2011It may have the cutest cover of any book I've read as an adult, be described as a "fairy tale", with a recommendation from Bjork, but this story is far from twee.The original Icelandic title is "Skugga-Baldur", also the name of one of the central characters - not a nice man - whom we first meet as he hunts the blue fox. The harshness of that sound, and the use of his name as the title, far better reflects the tale and its brutal environment. This is not "The Snow Goose" featuring a rare [...]
