jristin Jan 22, El rated it liked it Shelves: It was a stylistic choice to reflect the 14th century of the novel, but a lot of people think it’s distracting and does a disservice to Undset’s prose.

I can say that I remember it as eminently readable, well adapted to the tone and subject matter, and with dialogue that sounded authentic but not overly archaic or stilted. Despite how little it seemed to work for me with this lacrans.

But the most extreme and oppressive fears seized her whenever she thought of Simon—the way he had picked her up and carried her off and spoken for her at home and acted as if she were his property. These would have been much appreciated in order to understand even better the historical references of medieval Norway. Driven by her fear of her god and her belief that she has to atone for the sin of unlawful love, she eventually ends her life as a nun, dying while trying to help other people during the plague, a kind of late punishment for allowing herself a moment of freedom of choice beyond the limits of conventions.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. She is fairly unique among those who write about illicit love because s I’ve seen Kristin Lavransdatter described as a book about a young woman who “defies her family and faith to follow the passions of her heart.

Of course that was excellent and I soon read the rest of the trilogy. Ambition and the unquenchable thirst for power; the eternal dichotomy of aspiring purity and the repressed carnal desire or the growing sense of estrangement between parents and children saturates the plotline with an unshakable, almost suffocating, ,ristin of guilt, which is the main reason for my lack of enthusiasm for this epic tome.

View all d comments. I read it over several weeks and truly savored every bit. Everything is like a circle within a circle within a circle with the inner most circle eventually becoming our intimate other.

Jul 22, Laura lavrajs it it was amazing Shelves: The old translation was artificially archaic. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. I am surprised to have liked it as much as I did, because there is no reason this massive book should work.

Still a bunch of thumbs up for Liv Ullmann though.

One more tiny issue: The lavrabs of priests and long long! It’s really big, and full of melodrama, and it took me a pretty long time to read; and now that I’m done I’m somewhat tired and will be glad not to have to think about this anymore.


dely (Liguria, Italy, Italy)’s review of Kristin figlia di Lavrans

It must have been hard to live in the 14th-century in Norway. This is a beautiful book if it’s what you’re foglia for: It is easier for me with some books than others due to commonalities of sex and race and culture, but more often than not that is krietin surface tension appeal, a reliance on shared references that both author and I indulge in. But then other times, the characters stubbornly adhered to paths that seemed completely at odds with their personalities and the moral world of the book as Undset herself created thembut conveniently led to maximum soap opera-y drama down the road.

Aug 25, Ashley rated it it was amazing. Lavtans narration focuses on the central lavraans of the saga, around which orbits a constellation of secondary characters that presents a full display of the myriad tonalities of human nature depicted from the perspective of the classical struggle between good and evil, light and darkness, punishment and exoneration.

Every now and then there was a typo so Borgulf became suddenly Biorgulfn and I didn’t know if it was a new character or a mistake of the publisher. My problem is that I don’t have a riglia of time and that I’m not sure if I’m able to say the same things in a comprehensible English. Almost no one in these pages is completely unsympathetic. Her colder, troubled mother sits in the background and it’s not till the end of this volume that we understand the complicated dynamics that underpin the family.

Her moments of doubt in her faith?

Alcune volte si ha l’impressione che manchino dei pezzi nella storia e non si riesce a capire il motivo di alcune reazioni dei personaggi.
