Información de este libro electrónico

La flor azul es la última novela de Penelope Fitzgerald. Una obra exquisita, ganadora del National Book Critics Circle Award, en la que la pasión del romanticismo se fusiona con la templanza de una escritura magistral. Cuando Friedrich von Hardenberg, quien más tarde tomaría el nombre de Novalis, le habla de la flor azul a su querida Sophie, una niña de doce años de la que se enamora en un primer encuentro, lo hace en el tono misterioso, secreto, de quien no ha descifrado todavía el significado del que será el símbolo del romanticismo alemán. Fritz es un joven brillante, un genio. Ha estudiado dialéctica y matemáticas, es amigo del crítico Schlegel, del filósofo Fichte y del gran Goethe, y ahora ha de aceptar un trabajo que no desea como inspector de minas de sal. Escribe poesía, ha empezado una novela y, sobre todo, desea ser feliz junto a su «sabiduría», la joven Sophie, que ha nacido para estar alegre y reír sin cesar. Ninguno de los dos sabe aún que su búsqueda de la belleza y del infinito tendrá que enfrentarse a duras pruebas.

    I was suggest this book by my library system's "Next Read" program because I have read and enjoyed a couple of Tracy Chevalier's books. The Blue Flower reconstructs the life of German romantic poet Novalis, whose real name was Fredrich von Hardenberg. It brings to life his life and surroundings in 18th-century Germany, particularly his relationship with young Sophie von Kühn, a mere child when they met. The attraction of historical fiction is being able to experience a taste of life during that time and place and Penelope Fitzgerald does a wonderful job with her descriptions of that time.

    Tried to finish it. I really did. The first few chapters were engaging... the rest was just awful

    "We are all free to imagine what the world is like, and since we probably all imagine it differently, there is no reason at all to believe in the fixed reality of things" Professor Johann Gottlieb Fichte says speaking of the philosophy of Kant (which he believed he had greatly improved upon: Kant believed in the external world) at the first lecture Fritz attended at Jena where he studied history and philosophy. And Fritz imagines. Then Sophie - "his Philosophie" gets ill:"Shall I stay?" "If you stayed here, you would not be wanted as a nurse", the Mandelsloh replied. "You would be wanted as a liar". Fritz raised his heavy head. "What then should I say? "You look a little better this morning Söphen." "I could not lie to her, more than I could lie to myself.""I don´t know to what extent a poet lies to himself."And later, at home to his brother Erasmus:"I could not stay," Fritz told him.Paradox and irony are too reductive words for describing this powerful book about the clash of the worlds, the material and the spiritual. Now they are all dead, Sophia, Fritz, Karoline, Erasmus, the Bernhard and all the rest of them, the courageous and the foolish alike. Truly no imagination saved them from that - All dead? What about the blue flower? Oh - it blooms. With a fragrance more contagious than consumption, it flowers with a deadly flame that burns with the life we bring to it, reading....Materially: So easy reading, uncomplicated storyline, straightforward language, short. Spiritually: I share Fritz feeling when carrying the Bernhard, saving him from drowning. "How heavy a child is when it gives up responsibility". Left more than a bit blue .... heavy actually, by the reality of what lives and what dies.

    This book didn't really do anything for me one way or the other. When I finished reading I wasn't sure of a lot of things. I wasn't sure if I liked what I read and I wasn't really sure I remembered what I read either. I picked this book because it was longlisted for the Orange Prize (Now Women's Prize for Fiction) and I assumed that meant it would be an enjoyable read or have some aspect to it that would capture me somehow. I didn't dislike my time with this book, but I certainly didn't find it entertaining, nor did I see what the fuss was about. I feel somewhat pressured by the four and five star reviews I have seen to go back, read this again and try and work out where the book and I went so wrong before, but I can't really make myself think about doing that right now. Maybe in a few years I'll give it another go. For now I will just admit that other readers found something in this book that I didn't have a clue even existed. I can't find the greatness, but I won't say it's bad either.

    The Blue Flower is typical of Fitzgerald in that it is concise and elliptical, yet like an impressionist painting. Much is suggested and this reader enjoys that approach, but others may not.I think that all of Fitzgerald’s novels are excellent, and had read most by the time I read The Blue Flower, which is about the early life of the artist who became Novalis. I had been to an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery the previous year, The Romantic Spirit in German Art 1790-1990 which included works by Novalis. So all these factors and others combine to make this a special book for me.So I would recommend if you like a concise, suggestive style, which lets your imagination work with the book
