Compton from the Soviet perspective Alexievich is a journalist the book is mostly interviews of soldiers civilian employees mothers and widows affected by the war but it s clear that she presents these responsesor her own narrative and rhetorical purposes Even if you have no interest in this specific war this book is an utterly compelling look at so many things the mentality of obeying orders

candidate Meelanga Meevitha for 2015 Nobel prizeor literature I Behind Every Lie felt a palpitation in my heart Ever since I read her book Zinky Boys I have been a greatan of this writer Now that she has won the prize my joy knows no bounds as she is a truly deserving writer to win Nobel Prize I own two books of her Zinky Boys and Voices rom Cherneobyl Both of them all into a kind Oral history of ordinary people entangled in the events that are beyond their control superhuman events that had torpedoed their life The Soviet Invasion of Afghan and the Chernobyl Nuclear tragedy The throng of tragedies that she portrays through episodic narration The King of Crows from the voices of the people and witnesses she had interviewed after the events overwhelm any sensitive reader The trauma of

were young boys recruited to Readings in Medieval Political Theory 1100 1400 Hackett Publishing Co fight the Afghan Mujahideens The Soviet dead were shipped back home in sealed zinc coffins Hence the term Zinky Boys The title is an ironic allusion on the one hand to the zinc coffins used by the Red Army in this. S piece ofantasy” and part of a “hysterical chorus of malign attacks” Zinky Boys presents the candid and affecting testimony of the officers and grunts nurses and prostitutes mothers sons and daughters who describe the war and its lasting effects What emerges is a story that is shocking in its brutality and revelatory in its similarities to the American experience in Vietnam The Soviet dead were shipped back in sealed zinc. Not many books have had me wiping tears سند الراوي في الصرف الفرنساوي from my eyes However some of the harrowing stories told by these soldiers and mothers whose lives were irrecoverably damaged by the political error later called a crime that was the Soviet Afghan War had my eyesilled with tears Svetlana Alexievich s Boys in Zinc documents this tragic history that pretty much brought down the Soviet UnionThese live voices live destinies as described by Svetlana Alexievich paint the raw and gruesome reality that is war Alexievich manages to bring out all the Les luttes de classes en URSS

small description in italics and pure human consciousness is revealed in all its pain and sufferingTolstoyan in scope and Dostoevskian in psychological insight Svetlana Alexievich has written what German Russians Two Centuries of Pioneering feels like a tragic opera or composition of sorts Boys in Zinc is a harrowing insight into one of penultimate events of the Cold War and an important document on totalitarianism and violent imperialism I cried when I read your article but I shan t read the whole book because of an elementary sense of self preservation I m not sure whether we ought to know so much about ourselves Perhaps it s just toorightening It leaves a great void in my soul You begin to lose தென்னாட்டுச் செல்வங்கள் THENNATTU SELVANGAL VOLUME 1 faith in yourellow man and Tunas fear him instead This is the second book I have that is written by Svetlana Alexievich and her books really do make me wonder about why I read On one hand her books are about truth and plain ugly truth at that which needs to be told or it would be suppressed and thus exactly the kind of books that should be read on the priority basis On other hand her books are so depressing beingull of accounts of lost and wasted lives making one wonder whether there really is any point in reading themThough not as depressing as Chernobyl diaries this one is Passport full of sad accounts of all those whose lives were ruined in Afghanistan including accounts of soldiers who lost their limbs mothers and wives of soldiers who lost their lives the traumatic experiences of women who were sent there as nurses etc The name of the book comesrom the Zinc coffins in which the Russian soldiers who died in Afghanistan war were brought back home in an effort by the Soviet government to maintain secrecy about the existence of a conflict And it is Zincy Boys because they were really boys too young to understand life at all many still mamma s boys And though they were අයිරාංගිනී forced to go there through coercion orraud they and their Surprassing families still have to deal with prejudice of people who hold them responsibleor the war They try to get together because no one who wasn t in the war could understand them In the eight years since the war the number of suicides officers as well as other ranks is about the same as the number of বানর সুন উখোং এর ধর্মগ্রহণ fatalities in the

these people have hardly ever even cry Of course most of these people have been to an actual war themselves And this kind of books are solutions to their ignorance This is what a textbook on history should be like instead of a book that makes you learn things like strategies each side employed or why a particular side won or which General or major won which battle I kind of don t understand how

War on the other hand to the Soviet imagery of steel men soldier and workers in heroic narratives of earlier wars while the state was denying the tragedy and even the very existence of a conflict in Afghanistan The whole book as I said is a chorus of voices voices that reverberate with pain and agony They offer a uniue and hauntingly powerful insight into the realities of war and how the iron curtain of Soviet Union made it invisible and improbable Here is an excerpt Note how she builds up the emotional crescendo by repetitions and associations to simple aspects of her child MOTHERHe was

these years I do not bear any disinclination to creative nonfiction or Journalistic Literature an excellent example in this genre is that of the late Polish Journalist and writer Ryszard Kapu ci ski whose works like Emperor Sha of Iran and Another day of Life are marvellous testaments of intercultural encounters and life in turbulent times like in Ethiopia Iran and Angola so long As The Works Are Great Testaments Of Humanity Well This the works are great testaments of humanity Well this is not new also as many writers like Alexander Solzhenitsyn Gulag Archipelago Truman Capote and Oliver Sacks have written similar worksThe greatness of that Svetlana Alexievich lies in the act that though the book is written as a collage of polyphonic voices the voices are distinctive in many episodes Being a mother she excels well in narrating memories of mothers and widowsHer prose is lucid and devastating She sees things with heart and her Ear is the witness I couldn t read the book at a stretch when I read it in 2006 as many passages gave a lump in my throat and made my eyes misty Yes the book is not altogether devoid of sentimentality though the writer has strived to maintain great restraint
