SUMMARY Ê The Satanic Verses ✓ Boven Engeland ontploft een gekaapt vliegtuig Tussen plastic bekertjes zuurstofmaskers afgerukte ledematen en herinneringen vallen twee figuren richting het Kanaal Het zijn de beroemde acteur Djibriel Farisjta en de in driedelig grijs gestoken Saladin Chamcha die uiteindelijk levend en wel op de Engelse kust aanspoelenEHa die uiteindelijk levend en wel op de Engelse kust aanspoelenEen wonder maar met een bijwerking Djibriel krijgt een glanzend aureool terwijl Saladins benen steeds hariger worden zijn voeten in hoeven veranderen en er hoornige bulten op zijn voorhoofd groe. Here's the thing about this book that you will immediately grasp from what everyone says it's a beast I do not mean this in a bad sense I mean this in the sense that it's overwhelming It's long complex storylines that involve overlapping characters and storylines that don't overlap in time or space at all dense and occasionally slow It is not for the reader with ADD No matter how uickly you think you might read reading this book will slow you down No matter how determined you are to catch every single detail and nuance of this book and what it means you will notI can generally blaze through a book in a matter of days It took me an entire year to read this book and was almost certainly my longest read I often had to go back and refer to other parts of the book to keep names and events straight but you know what it was worth every minuteRushdie is a master writer and I can't tell you how much I took away from this book I would have liked to taken a class on it while reading it so that I could have understood of it but even without one I enjoyed every second of it reading it is a labor of love but it's a highly rewarding one

Boven Engeland ontploft een gekaapt vliegtuig Tussen plastic bekertjes zuurstofmaskers afgerukte ledematen en herinneringen vallen twee figuren richting het Kanaal Het zijn de beroemde acteur Djibriel Farisjta en de in driedelig grijs gestoken Saladin Chamc. Satanic Verses A CompositionHe had just finished his thirty fourth reading of the play The unsaid hate the unseen events the half imagined wrongs; they tormented him What could cause such evil to manifest he just could not figure He loved him too much to believe the simple explanationAnd then the idea starts growing on him to explore the growth of evil just as Shakespeare showed explored the tragic culmination of it And because you show the growth it can no longer be a tragedy no no it has to be a comedy A tragicomedy Yes And he set to it He painted Othello as an Indian actor worshiped and adored and off on a mad canter to get his Ice ueen his Desdemona On his way he meets him the poor man trying to forget his own roots and desperately reinventing himself his Iago Yes Iago too was once a man What twists of fate made him evil incarnate He sets out his prime motif The uestion that’s asked here remains as large as ever it was which is the nature of evil how it’s born why it grows how it takes unilateral possession of a many sided human soulWait a minute he blinks at his notes if Iago is evil incarnate does that not also mean that he is Satan incarnate Chamcha then is Satan incarnate Then Othello has to be God A little bit corruptible maybe Let us make him the angel Gibreel he decided As an aside as the angel he can slip into that reality in his dreams and reenact the story history of Prophet Mohammad in inflammatory fashion maybe talk about the 'Satanic Verses' since his Satan can't help but gloat over his little jokes Why not call the novel so too except that it would mean something else the verses that the real Satan of the story Iago sings in Othello's ear He knows that this might be cause for misunderstanding might ruffle a few feathers but it is just a digression the real story is beyond that it is not the Event Horizon But he can't help himself He never could keep a story simpleAh now something beyond mere Othello is taking shape is it not If Iago is Satan then surely it is in character to enjoy with consummate pleasure the sight of his own jealousy consuming himself the green eyed monster that feeds on itself So Satan decides to narrate the story of one of his incarnations Or rather possessions The uestions that are to run his plot are flowing freely now How an ordinary man when in contact with an angel inevitably had to transform into Lucifer himself How can one exist without the other They meet and the spiral ensues and Iago mutates and agitates and like a cancerous growth his strange fate builds until he turns his wrath suare on his angel his Othello And how can he then not try to destroy what he is not what he can not be There is the moment before evil then the moment of then the time after; and each subseuent stride becomes progressively easier But what about before and after the madness It surely must be an ordinary life with ordinary joys and pains It is a cosmic drama he concludesIn the process every insinuated implication in the play is to be played out in this story Cassio does sleep with Iago's wife Iago is madly lustful of Desdemona Othello is a deserving victim of directed revenge for very real ills and Iago needs no invented or unbelievable reasons for his actions He is justified It was inevitable Salman Rushdie sets down his pen He has vindicated Iago many a literature lover's favorite characterAnd for that I am eternally thankful

The Satanic VersesIen Ze zijn verkozen tot tegenstanders in de eeuwige strijd om Goed en Kwaad Maar wie is wie Terwijl de twee mannen door tijd en ruimte buitelen richting hun uiteindelijke confrontatie is de lezer getuige van een epos over liefde hartstocht bedrog en geloof. Unfortunately most people know this book from the scandal and fatwa it generated around the personage of its prolific and outspoken author Salman Rushdie rather than the book itself The thing that enraged some Muslims and the Ayatollah of Iran most of all was Rushdie's hypothesis that Mohammed being completely illiterate and having the u'ran being narrated to him by Archangel Gabriel could have dozed off at one point and that Satan could have impersonated Gabriel without Mohammed noticing causing some verses of the Holy Book to be written by him That's it Just a theory No than when Kazantzakis imagines Jesus fantasising about accepting Mary Magdalene's sexual advances In Rushdie's book this is not even the main story just an internal narrative in a dream of a character that falls out of an airplane of all things The book is highly imaginative and although I preferred Midnight's Children and The Moor's Last Sigh remains for me one of his best works So read it if for any other reason as to oppose censorship and support artistic freedom and artistic license Especially in these days of religious fanaticism books like Satanic Verses which challenge the status uo and force us to re evaluate our values and idées reçu are incredibly important
