Epic fascinating interview with Shirley Hazzard from 2005 (The Paris Review - The Art of Fiction No. 185)
Epic fascinating interview with Shirley Hazzard from 2005 (The Paris Review - The Art of Fiction No. 185)
The Sydney of my childhood had no concert hall. The echoing old Town Hall was used by the unadventurous orchestra, and the Conservatorium of Music by the ballet company. The theater was very limited, with constant repetitions of casts and plays, yet there was interest in the theater, and some circumscribed efforts by small groups. The visual arts were worst off. The public gallery at Sydney had some good paintings--some, for instance, by nineteenth-century British painters who had come "out" to what was then a colony--but even these were displayed in such gloom and institutional dreariness that one dreaded the Sunday afternoons on which one was taken there. The government, entirely male and philistine, was actively inimical to the arts; ridicule was the keynote. These things, in Australia, have greatly, if not entirely, changed.

Mensen die in symptomen van de werkelijkheid een vijandelijke strategie zien, zijn van alle tijden.
Onoda maakt zich uiteindelijk eveneens weinig illusies over de keizer, of die nu een levende god is of niet. In de Filipijnse jungle zong hij al die jaren regelmatig een lied om de moed niet te verliezen: ‘Ik mag een zwerver of een bedelaar lijken,/ Maar stille maan, jij bent getuige van de glans van mijn ziel.’
Enrico Caruso, in wiens muziek hij de opdracht ontwaart een operahuis te bouwen in de jungle
Hij ziet in de symptomen van de werkelijkheid slechts een vijandelijke strategie die hem tot overgave moet verleiden.

Vijftien jaar lang filmde Oeke Hoogendijk haar moeder die tientallen jaren haar huis niet uit durfde en wordt geteisterd door terugkerende nachtmerries uit de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Als meisje werd ze, net als haar ouders en haar broer, gedeporteerd naar verschillende concentratiekampen. Als enige kwam ze terug, getraumatiseerd en niet in staat het verleden los te laten.
