Mitt liv har gjort mig iakttagande.
Jag har blivit en betraktare. A man walks down the street. It's a street in a strange world. Maybe it's the third world. Maybe it's his first time around. Doesn't speak the language.
He holds no currency. He is a foreign man. He is surrounded by the sound, the sound. Cattle in the marketplace. He looks around, around. He sees angels in the architecture. He says, "Amen and Hallelujah! Han ser sig omkring, omkring.
Men, jag kan inte! Makt, sex och kultur. Visst ville vi det. Vi satt ensamma kvar i den tomma lokalen och drack upp vinet. Vi utgjorde definitivt inte en integrerad del av Stockholms nattliv. Tro mig, jag vet och det oroar mig att se hur de flockas kring dig. De blev till delar i ett rollspel. Vi trodde naturligtvis att det fanns en ordentlig kontroll och tanke bakom deras straff och permissionstider.
Det var mitt egentliga tema. Jag har inte reagerat. En cynisk iakttagare, med drag av en lockande femme fatale. Lagercrantz, Olof Vid sidan av: Dagboksanteckningar i urval av Richard Lagercrantz och Stina Otterberg. Lundgren, Maja Myggor och tigrar. I had planned to clear the grounds around house from twigs and fallen leaves.
Accordingly, I went outside quite early in the morning. The sky was bright blue, though it soon became clouded and it did not take long before the rain poured down, preventing my outdoor activities. Back in the house, I made a fire and pulled out a book from the shelf.
It happened to be Edward S. Ellis's Ned in the Blockhouse: I assume that I during my adolescence swallowed almost all of those fabulous Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1. At that time it delt like entering another reality.
A unique feeling that few other novels have been able to create, either then or later. I was now reading Ned in the Blockhouse once again, well aware of the fact that I would never again be surrounded by the wilderness of Kentucky and Ohio; ancient forests inhabited by the sad survivors from indigenous tribes who already by the middle of the eighteenth century had been decimated by chickenpox, cholera and typhoid, diseases brought to the West by intruders into the hunting grounds of Native Americans, pushing them aside or brutally killing off those who had survived their tribulations.
He generally described Native Americans as savages, though he nevertheless provided them with a certain degree of cunning and described them as thoroughly familiar with the natural habitat, in which they had their home. On the contrary he considered Afro Americans as quite kind-hearted beings, albeit clumsy and generally quite dim-witted. Black people, in reality slaves, though Ellis called them "servants", represented the lighter entertainment in his novels.
He is true son of the wilderness. Young, handsome, athletic "Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1" intelligent he moves silently and swiftly through the woods and is capable of swimming like an utter. Furthermore, Deerfoot is an unwavering friend of all white settlers and trappers, and does Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 hesitate to betray, or even kill, members of his own tribe to protect the white intruders.
Certainly, already as a youngster I reacted to the trappers Simon Kenton and Daniel Boone, too good to be true, and not least the young, annoyingly perfect Ned Preston.
This young Afro-American was depicted as a jovial, clumsy and moderately talented glutton, who constantly messed things up for his noble Massa Ned. Nevertheless, the formidable Deerfoot managed to escape from my disapproval, despite his exaggerated Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 and unreserved loyalty to racist settlers. Deerfoot was an exceptional human being.
He knew the trails of all animals and humans. Just by scrutinizing broken twigs and imprints from moccasins, he knew which tribe of
Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 Americans who had been travelling through the forests. Deerfoot could mimic the sound of all animals, knew Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 the scents of the forest and could even move silently over dry leaves, something I often tried to do - an impossible endeavour.
There were huge moss covered boulders, fallen timber, small streams and just like in the Kentucky and Ohio of Deerfoot, lakes shimmered in the depths of the forest and I could occasionally come across an elk, or frighten a group of deer. Both Ned in the Block House and Ned on the River tell the story of how a small group of settlers during the so called Tecumseh War —becomes cordoned off by threatening natives.
During this war white settlers were attacked by the Confederacy of Tecumseha network of North American indigenous peoples, who tried to fight off a US government supported colonization after the North American Freedom War. Leader of the Confederacy was the charismatic Shawnee chieftain Tecumseh and he was inspired and supported by the religious teachings of his brother Tenskwawata. The war broke out in when US troops attacked the central villages of the Confederation.
When Tecumseh died inhis movement collapsed. Ned and Blossom are in both of the books I recently reread, lost in trackless forests, while vicious savages try to kill them. While reading Ned in the Block HouseI suddenly remembered how I once had encountered a picture of Ned hiding in a tree. I flipped through the book without finding the illustration and then remembered it was in Ned on the River I had seen it.
Ned looked down at his pursuers, the Shawnee warriors were circling the tree.
Even though he was more eager Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 ever to keep them under surveillance, he shivered from the imminent danger. He feared that if he opened his eyes, the scouts would discover the whites of his eyes. He forced himself to shut his eyes, listen, wait and pray. When he could not use his sight, his hearing was sharpened.
The Shawnees did not have to say anything, they understood each other so well that all speech was superfluous. They acted on their own and if someone discovered something he would certainly not be late in communicating his findings to his companion.
When you are as hard up as Ned Preston, time is slow. After ten minutes, he was convinced that he had been lying in the same position for more than half an hour. During this time he Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 nothing that could increase his concern. He nurtured a slight hope that the men had gone away. His anxiety became so excruciating that he had to open his eyes and slowly pull away the leaves with his right hand, carefully glancing over the edge of the branch.
The Shawnee below Ned takes a few steps back, constantly facing upwards, but then he happens to walk into a cavity below the water and disappears from sight, when he surfaces again hicompanion laughs heartily and the warrior cannot help bursting into laughter as well. After some hesitation, he wades into the water and joins his companion on the other side of the stream. They walk on and Ned can finally begin breathing with ease.
While I after several years once again was confronted with Uno Stallarholm's illustration, I understood that it was it, perhaps more than the story's intensity, which had stuck with me.
When I continued to browse among the novels in my bookshelf, I realized how much their illustrations and covers had impacted me and nurtured my imagination. English and French pictures had been rooted in my subconscious, but also Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 artwork. The list is long and may be even longer. However, among the absolute best was Eric Palmquist. It is astonishing that such a professional and hardworking artist as Palmquist does not figure more prominently on the internet.
I was unable to find much written about this self-taught artist who, to my mind, almost as much as my authors, has come to represent my perceptions of a wide range of novels. And not only that, Palmquist also illustrated several bird - and wildlife books.
Not least, he created the prototypes for the elegant Swedish banknotes that were in use to My father kept several of them in his bookstand. Palmquist's dust cover art was unique since it did not
Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 adorn the front sides, but the backs and spines as well.
Book ledges framed our TVset and when I did not pay attention to the screen I used to let my sight wander across the shelves. Thus, already before I was able to read, I had become fascinated by the spine of The Three Musketeers on which Palmquist had depicted how D'Artagnan was sitting with Mylady on his knee, while a musketeer directed his weapon towards me.
Sometimes, I found that the dust covers had indicated more than the novels could deliver. Palmquist did for example encourage me to read historical novels like M. Maybe there was too much love story in it. I do not remember and someday I maybe ought to read it again.
Night after night I devoured it before I fell asleep at around three o'clock in the morning. Robert Lewis Taylor's West was quite different from the place I knew from the Western movies on TV; more tangible and raw and furthermore, it was perceived through the eyes of a young man.
The unknown, exotic, yet intimately and carefully depicted, is something that several of Palmquist's illustrations have in common. During my military service, it kept me awake in front of switchboard and Morse key during long night watches.
It was not only novels by authors in the Nobel Prize league that Palmquist illustrated. He also created the cover of novels by the more respected authors who belonged to what had been labelled the Proletarian Schoola literature trend which in Scandinavia had its Skarpt straff for valdtakt 1 days during the s and s.
