May companiz, Eddie Watkins rated it really liked it Shelves: Pare detto a proposito di quel che mi succede in questo diario, lungo il quale vado alla deriva, navigando per i mari del maledetto garbuglio della sindrome di Bartleby: Bartleby et compagnie – France.

Fondati su una intuizione e sul gioco della letteratura che parla della letteratura, dei libri che parlano di libri. Very dark, very funny. All wrapped up in books.

Bartleby & Co.

I have a pitiful hump, which I am resigned to. E di cosa parlano le note?

As such, it was great fun, but pointless fun. All those books, all that knowledge, those stories.

Books by Enrique Vila-Matas. It’s a book whose modest place is to lead its readers to other books.

Bartleby Y Compañia / Bartleby and Company: : Enrique Vila-Matas: Books

Pensano di procedere, ma non fanno altro che precipitare senza avanzare – verso bartlebt vuoto. You I can’t really think about this book without comparing it to Markson’s Vanishing Point. Amusing enough, I suppose, an extended wry reflection on a particular attitude toward literature presented in the form of footnotes to a book that hasn’t been written; given the contents of the footnotes, one might at least feel grateful for that.

Questo lo chiamerei una sindrome bqrtleby Bartleby al contrario. The piece is a collection of footnotes, written by a reclusive hunchback who is unable to write. A Manifesto would love it. The narrator is a hunchbacked loser who takes a leave from work to write a book, but is blocked, but in his blockage writes cmopania book in the form of footnotes about authors or authors’ characters throughout history who either refused to write, or couldn’t write due to blockage, or who wrote but refused to reveal much of themselves, or who simply preferred silence or to remain non-entities, etc.

Anche i personaggi di commpania romanzi diventano emblematici come fautori della negazione partendo- ovviamente- da Melville e Howthorne e proseguendo con Musil e, soprattutto, Kafka.

Vila-Matas lo incontra per un caso fortuito su un autobus a Manhattan. Eso es lo grandioso de Vila-Matas, eso es lo que en cada lectura suya consigue convencerme de seguirlo leyendo. Julio Ramon Ribeyro – a Peruvian writer, Walserian in his discretion, always writing as if on tiptoe to avoid running up against his sense of shame or running up against, because it might happen, Vargas Llosa–always harboured the suspicion, which turned into conviction, that there is a series of books which form part of the history of the No, though they may not exist.


Jun 25, Lee rated it really liked it. Vila-Matas’s hunchbacked narrator shares with the reader his footnoted Bartlebyan thesis of the No, and when you read this book, you just might come away with re-definitions, new filters. These phantom books, invisible texts, are the ones that knock at our door one day and, when we go receive them, for what is often a trivial reason, they disappear; we open the door and they are no longer there, they have gone.

We just want to make that loss personal. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign ccompania. Or, like Harry Potter, something that will bring you fame and untold riches.

Rather than being a labyrinth itself, it’s the gateway to labyrinths.
