    1. Απόλυτη μοναξιά μέσα κι έξω. Ανεπίδοτες χαρές και χλωμές αναμνήσεις καταδικασμένες στην εξαφάνιση.Μελαγχολία,απογοήτευση,θλίψη και νεκρές ελπίδες,στη χώρα της λησμονιάς. Στα σύνορα της χώρας ακοίμητοι φρουροί είναι οι δέσμιοι των ίδιων τους των ονείρων. Είναι όλοι οι φοβ [...]


    2. "Time has slipped by so quickly,that his heart has not had a chance to grow old"While Dino Buzzati was putting the finishing touches to his 1938 novel, the world outside began a slow and oblivious path, looming towards a war that shook the very foundations of mother Earth. Is it possible Buzzati knew what lied ahead?, as his story here revolves around anticipating war, waiting, watching, fearful of what may appear over the horizon."The Tartar Steppe is both a scathing critique of military life p [...]


    3. A powerful novel, The Tartar Steppe’s writing and context made an impression on me from the start. I read it many years back, and now as I revisited it all came back. It's about looking for the meanings of life, and much more. The Italian Dino Buzzati immerses the reader in a story of hope and how cruelly such feeling can be wasted leading to disappointment. It's the story of a young officer dispatched to serve on a remote fort overlooking the desert. It's about waiting for the enemy at the fr [...]


    4. Poi nel buio, benché nessuno lo veda, sorride.Ho sempre odiato entrare nel personale quando scrivo una recensione. Qui però va fatta una doverosa premessa. Fino a qualche mese fa io ero ingarbugliato nella mia routine quotidiana e non osavo fare mezzo passo avanti per timore che, una volta spezzata, mi ritrovassi sperduto. Quando ho fatto questo passo, esattamente verso la fine dello scorso novembre, ho scoperto che cambiare è necessario. È necessario fare una scelta. Anche se può essere sb [...]


    5. L'attesa nella rinuncia "Egli era avanzato per la spensierata età della prima giovinezza, una strada che da bambini sembra infinita, dove gli anni scorrono lenti e con passo lieve, così che nessuno nota la loro partenza."L'orologio rimbomba nella stanza con i suoi ticchetii; la sabbia della clessidra precipita inesorabile, ogni granello una scelta che si sarebbe potuta fare, una svolta che avrebbe rotto la perpetua e rassicurante normalità degli anni che corrono via.In eterna attesa dell'irra [...]


    6. The Tragedy of the Hour - Giorgio di ChiricoEverything goes by — men, the seasons, the clouds, and there is no use clinging to the stones, no use fighting it out on some rock in midstream; the tired fingers open, the arms fall back inertly and you are still dragged into the river, the river which seems to flow so slowly yet never stops. This is a strange and sundry book. It takes place on a lone fort on the vast steppes, where little ever happens, and nobody wants to leave. Our protagonist, a [...]


    7. Αριστουργηματική αλληγορία του Μπουτζάτι που κινείται ανάμεσα σε σουρεαλιστικά και καφκικά μονοπάτια Σε κάποια βιβλία πολλές φορές βρίσκουμε κρυμμένες τις πιο ενδόμυχες σκέψεις μας και τους πιο μεγάλους φόβους μας. "Η έρημος των Ταρτάρων" είναι ένα από αυτά τα βιβλία!!! Ο [...]


    8. La prima volta che ho letto Il deserto dei Tartari di Buzzati era il 1977. E’ stato amore a prima vista. Da allora, l’ho riletto diverse volte, con immutato piacere. Un libro “senza tempo”, in cui il tempo pesa come un macigno. Giovanni Drogo, tenente di prima nomina, dopo l’Accademia Militare si appresta a lasciare la sua casa per raggiungere la Fortezza, destinazione assegnatagli d’ufficio. La Fortezza luogo imprecisato ed ignoto, pieno di fascino e repulsivo al contempo. Qui, gior [...]


    9. Le Désert des Tartares est un roman de l’attente et de l’irréversible. Le récit est assez simple, quoiqu’ étrange: Drogo, jeune officier d’un royaume fictif, est affecté à un poste frontière, dans une vieille citadelle, à la lisière d’une étendue désertique, d’où, dit-on, pourraient surgir des hordes d’ennemis, les Tartares, à tout moment. Drogo, tout d’abord, souhaite être muté ailleurs, mais sans conviction et finalement sans succès. En définitive, il restera a [...]


    10. Πόσο τελειωτικά και αναπόδραστα μόνοι είμαστε όλοι, γεννιόμαστε, ζούμε και πεθαίνουμε στην απόλυτη μοναξιά. Γι' αυτό είναι τόσο πολύτιμες όλες εκείνες οι στιγμές που μπορούμε να βρεθούμε μέσα στην γλυκιά και ζεστή ψευδαίσθηση που δημιουργεί η αγάπη: ότι κάποιος είναι δίπλ [...]


    11. Not sure if it's lame/lazy shorthand to associate a novel with other novels since novels, like I presume all species of animals and plants, from monumental trees to psychoactive weeds, communicate among one another, that is, they talk -- and unlike simple human speech, they do so back and forth through time, which means that this one chats with Kafka's The Castle (Before the Law, too) at first, and then Mann's The Magic Mountain, all the while nodding at good old Godot and eyeing Coetzee's Waiti [...]


    12. I don’t know where else I can go…Sicuramente si è già detto e scritto tutto sul senso metaforico di questo romanzo: la ricerca di un senso nella vita, la vita come costante attesa, la vanità dell’attesa, e le continue illusioni e disillusioni, e soprattutto, l’immensa solitudine dell’uomo.“Che triste sbaglio [] forse tutto è così, crediamo che attorno ci siano creature simili a noi e invece non c’è che gelo, pietre che parlano una lingua straniera, stiamo per salutare l’ami [...]


    13. "Meanwhile time was slipping past, beating life out silently and with ever increasing speed; there is no time to halt even for a second, not even for a glance behind. "Stop, stop," one feels like crying, but then one sees it is useless. Everything goes by-men, the seasons, the clouds, and there is no use clinging to the stones, no use fighting it out on some rock in mid- stream; the tired fingers open, the arms fall back inertly and you are still dragged into the river, the river which seems to [...]


    14. Αι σιχτίρ με την μαυρίλα. Πάω βόλτα με την κόρη μου. * και φυσικά αυτό δεν είναι κριτική


    15. Un capolavoro“Il Deserto dei Tartari“ è uno di quei libri normalmente letti durante il periodo scolastico. Il suo contenuto, annegato nei compiti estivi, viene quasi subito dimenticato; del libro ci resta solo un vago ricordo e la consapevolezza che è un libro importante, anche se forse non siamo mai riusciti a capirne veramente il valore. Ecco, secondo me “Il deserto dei tartari” è un libro che richiede una certa maturità per riuscire a comprenderne a fondo il valore.Il romanzo è u [...]


    16. Mamma li…tartari!“Gravava oramai nella sala il sentimento della notte, quando le paure escono dai decrepiti muri e l’infelicità si fa dolce, quando l’anima batte orgogliosa le ali sopra l’umanità addormentata.” Nel mio personale "programma" di recupero di classici e dintorni sto vivendo un momento di riappacificazione con me stessa. Ci sono alcuni “mostri” della letteratura a cui mi ero rivolta spontaneamente, più o meno, apprezzandoli; altri mi erano stati imposti dal profess [...]


    17. The metaphor this book is steeped in - that life lures us on with promises of authentic experiences and moments of transcendence, or even just knock-out apprehensions of reality, but rarely if ever delivers, like an imagined thread followed into potential glory only to peter out at death - became more and more heavy-handed as this novel petered out toward its own end and the empty death of its protagonist. But perhaps that was the intention? giving the reader his/herself the very experience of t [...]


    18. Ζωή και θάνατος, ελπίδα και προσμονή, νιάτα και γήρας, πραγματικότητα και πλάνη, μοναξιά και συντροφικότητα. Πόσο μαγικός μπορεί να είναι ο τρόπος που μπορούν να μπλεχτούν και να αλληλοσυμπληρωθούν μεταξύ τους σε απόλυτη αρμονία όλες οι παραπάνω καταστάσεις!? Ενα καθαρά αλ [...]



    19. Logo nas primeiras páginas d'O Deserto dos Tártaros, pressente-se que esta não vai ser uma leitura comum, que esta não é uma história repleta de momentos gloriosos e finais felizes. E talvez seja essa a característica do livro que mais nos aproxima dele, das suas personagens e do desenrolar da trama.Para quem não gosta de leituras angustiantes, não se atreva. O percurso é tão duro quanto o caminho até à Fortaleza Bastiani, perdida entre montanhas escarpadas, solitária no silêncio [...]


    20. Βέβαια, ούτε τούτη τη νύχτα προφέρει κανείς, χώρια από μερικούς στρατιώτες, το όνομα που βρίσκεται στην καρδιά όλων. Οι αξιωματικοί προτιμούν να μην το αναφέρουν, γιατί το όνομα αυτό είναι η τελευταία ελπίδα τους. Για τους Τάρταρους ύψωσαν τα τείχη του Οχυρού, για τους Τάρτα [...]


    21. Üzerine çok uzun uzun laf söylemeye gerek yok: anlayana tokat gibi bir roman. Herkesin hapsolduğu Bastiani Kalesi'ni bulmak kendine kalmış, çalıştığı plazalar mı, aile mi, metropoller mi, kasabalar mı? Hayat akıyor ve zaman, en hızlı tükenen servetimiz.


    22. Giovanni Drogo, protagonista da obra, é um jovem tenente destacado para a fortaleza Bastiani, na fronteira do deserto de um país que não sabemos ao certo qual é. Drogo espera cumprir aí as suas obrigações militares durante quatro meses e depois ser transferido para a cidade. Na fortaleza, soldados e oficiais vivem à espera de um possível ataque dos Tártaros, embora haja quem acredite que tudo seja apenas lenda e que tais habitantes não existem. O que importa é que eles são uma possi [...]


    23. Uma história de homens que consomem os seus dias observando o lado Norte da Fortaleza Bastiani; ansiando a chegada dos Tártaros que, em batalhas, os tornarão gloriosos. Manietados por senhas e contra-senhas - numa cadeia de rígidas e inúteis regras - são mártires da rotina, da espera infinita de um sentido para a vida, enquanto a juventude se lhes escapa por entre os dedos como a areia do deserto que os rodeia. Alguns saltam as muralhasLazzari que, rebelde, não resiste ao apelo do seu ca [...]


    24. شروع خوبی دارهوقتی به اواسط کتاب می‌رسید، خیلی خسته می‌شید. البته خستگی‌ای که برای همچین کتابی نیازه. این خستگی، باعث می‌شه ضربه آخر کتاب رو به بهترین شکل حس کنین. آخرهای کتاب باز، حوادث پرکشش می‌شن و جذاب.یکی از بهترین و ضربه‌زننده‌ترین پایان‌هایی که در خاطرم هست.بعد از [...]


    25. ''rbarlar hala görünmedi. Sınır boylarından gelenlerin dediğine bakılırsa barbarlardan bir iz yokmuş ortalıkta. Peki, şimdi halimiz ne olacak barbarlarsız? Onlar bir çeşit çözümdü bizim için.” Barbarları Beklerken / KavafisBarbarlar bir çözümdü genç Teğmen Drogo için de.

    26. „Deşertul tătarilor”, o carte ce lasă urme adânci în suflet, o carte ce sigur mă va ”bântui”.”În vremea aceasta, timpul gonea nebuneşte; bătaia lui neauzită scandează tot mai repede viața: nu, nu ne putem opri în loc nici măcar o clipă, nici măcar pentru a arunca o privire fugară înapoi. 'Opreşte-te, opreşte-te!' am vrea să strigăm, dar ne dăm seama că ar fi zadarnic. Totul, absolut totul este trecător: anotimpurile, oamenii, norii; şi nu slujeşte la nimic s [...]


    27. Ogni commento sarebbe inadatto a descrivere la profondità di questo romanzo e l’importanza che esso assume nell’esistenza del lettore. La tante volte ripetuta espressione “questo libro mi ha cambiato la vita”per nessun altro libro come Il deserto dei tartari può essere più veritiera: personalmente non ho mai creduto che un libro cambi la vita, mi basta (e ti pare poco!) che mi faccia riflettere su aspetti di me stessa che avevo trascurato o ignorato. Il deserto dei tartari provoca una [...]


    28. زمان همچنان می‌گذرد. تپش بی‌صدای آن، همواره زندگی را عجولانه‌تر بخش می‌کند. حتی امکان ندارد برای یک لحظه، برای حتی نگاهی به عقب متوقف شود. آدم دلش می‌خواهد فریاد بزند:‌ "بایست! بایست!". اما معلوم است که بی‌فایده است. همه چیز می‌گریزد. آدم‌ها، فصل‌ها، ابرها. و چنگ‌زدن به سنگ [...]


    29. "One September morning, Giovanni Drogo, being newly commissioned, set out from the city for Fort Bastiani; it was his first posting."Not only is this Drogo's first posting, but his last. The year fly by quickly: "One after the other, the pages turned--the grey pages of the day, the black pages of the night." Drogo is an Everyman figure. The whole novel, through his story and those of the Fort and men, is a meditation on life and death, hope, self-delusion, and glory. I recommend most highly. Wit [...]
