Read full description of the books Palatul Viselor:Palatul Viselor, "cea mai teribila si mai nemiloasa caricatura a totalitarismului in descompunere", dupa cum spunea Andre Clavel, a aparut intr-o prima varianta (Slujbasul de la Palatul Viselor) la Tirana, in 1981, si a fost interzis de regimul comunist al lui Enver Hodja. Kadare isi publica versiunea finala in 1990, la Editura Fayard, la scurt timp dupa emigrarea in Franta. Romanul, probabil cea mai curajoasa carte a lui Ismail Kadare, surprinde cosmarul orwellian amplificat intr-o izbucnire violenta a istoriei moderne, impletind intr-o poveste atemporala spaimele mentalitatii primitive cu delirul birocratiei totalitare.
Intr-un timp incert (poate inceputul secolului XX), sultanul imensului, dar subredului Imperiu Otoman ingradeste libertatea supusilor, controlandu-le visele prin intermediul celei mai inspaimantatoare si mai misterioase institutii ale puterii - Tabir Saray. Aici se angajeaza Mark-Alem, descendentul unei puternice familii cu radacini intr-o Albanie reala si mitica totodata, cel care primeste sarcina kafkiana de a trece prin filtrul interpretarii alegoriile si enigmele onirice ale unei imparatii intregi. Cerc dupa cerc, ca intr-un alt infern dantesc, tanarul ajunge pana in varful ierarhiei puterii de unde supravegheaza cu ura si teama mecanismul orb al politiei inconstientului. Insa, inevitabil, fatalismul balcanic il impinge tot mai aproape de prapastia indoielilor: oare un stapan absolut, chinuit de spaima muta de a nu intra el insusi in hatisul propriei masinarii demonice, nu va sfarsi intr-o buna zi condamnat de un vis anonim la dizgratie si uitare?
Read information about the authorIsmail Kadare (also spelled Kadaré) is an Albanian novelist and poet. He has been a leading literary figure in Albania since the 1960s. He focused on short stories until the publication of his first novel, The General of the Dead Army. In 1996 he became a lifetime member of the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences of France. In 1992, he was awarded the Prix mondial Cino Del Duca; in 2005, he won the inaugural Man Booker International Prize, in 2009 the Prince of Asturias Award of Arts, and in 2015 the Jerusalem Prize. He has divided his time between Albania and France since 1990. Kadare has been mentioned as a possible recipient for the Nobel Prize in Literature several times. His works have been published in about 30 languages.
Ismail Kadare was born in 1936 in Gjirokastër, in the south of Albania. His education included studies at the University of Tirana and then the Gorky Institute for World Literature in Moscow, a training school for writers and critics.
In 1960 Kadare returned to Albania after the country broke ties with the Soviet Union, and he became a journalist and published his first poems.
His first novel, The General of the Dead Army, sprang from a short story, and its success established his name in Albania and enabled Kadare to become a full-time writer.
Kadare's novels draw on Balkan history and legends. They are obliquely ironic as a result of trying to withstand political scrutiny. Among his best known books are Chronicle in Stone (1977), Broken April (1978), and The Concert (1988), considered the best novel of the year 1991 by the French literary magazine Lire.
In 1990, Kadare claimed political asylum in France, issuing statements in favour of democratisation. During the ordeal, he stated that "dictatorship and authentic literature are incompatible. The writer is the natural enemy of dictatorship."
