Zlem a smrtí Charakterizovala i titulní postavu jež se v průběhu překotných událostí a pod vlivem mefistofelského přítele ochotně přizpůsobovala nabídnuté příležitosti ke kariéře vyvoleného a končila vraždami a izolací Je ovšem třeba připočítat smutně ironický Fuksův vypravěčský styl který jakoby neosobně věcně nebo cituplně vede dialogy a popisuje a hraje Působí nejenom drasticky ale i panoptikálně Příběh. Mr Kopfrkingl lives in Prague Czechoslovakia and works as an undertaker in a crematorium He hates war and violence and is enchanted by Tibetan Buddhism He is a loving father and husband and the perfect citizen Seemingly He keeps repeating what seems to be his goal in life to reduce other people s suffering But is it really He seems to be interested in material gifts his friend Willi is getting out of growing closer to the Fascist elements in the country and to the Germans who are about to take over the country Mr Kopfrkingl plays with words and names music and art through which he tries to beautify the world He is using all kinds of rationalizations to try and beautify the horrible things he is willing to do to fit in with the new ideology and to get what he can out of it And it is amazing how easy it is to convince yourself that you are working for the good of humanity and to stay good in your own eyes while at the same time becoming a monster Full of dark and morbid humor this is a disuieting and painful satire that is well worth reading

Spalovač mrtvol

Odehrávající se na samém konci 30 let v pražských kulisách v době mnichovské kapitulace a okupace působí až obludně logickým vývojem malého člověka k přijetí zla; patologický případ sleduje až k dovětku s datem pětačtyřicátého roku Díky vnitřnímu napětí lidského příběhu a literárním kvalitám a rovněž díky úspěšnému filmovému zpracování se Spalovač mrtvol počítá k nejlepším prózám Ladislava Fuks. I had lots of thoughts and change of moods while reading it Where could be your place and how to react and stay pure while the oppressive regime From the very beginning Mr Kopf inkl was very unpleasant until the end when he transformed into an evil almost non human who succeeds to kill his own wife and kids This psychological drama is representing very vividly with what kind of pressure most of the Czechs had to cope during the occupation and the bilingual bias that stays in some ways till nowadaysJust a suggestion if you understand the language read it rather in Czech I had it as a gift in English translated great by Eva MKandler Karolinum Press with an explanation of all the names and expressions left in German and Czech for authenticity Nevertheless I was still imagining it to be clear in Czech For example the chlebi ky might be just sounding as regular sandwiches for some but for Czechs that is the festive formal food when people gather on holidays or birthdays They represent a tradition The power of the narrative relies heavily on the language The movie by the book sets out in 68 which is another year of shock and repression for the country but I will strongly recommend reading the book first

Příběh o spalovači mrtvol trochu podivínském a pilném zaměstnanci pražského krematoria Karlu Kopfrkinglovi patří do prvního období spisovatelovy tvorby Vyšel roku 1967 a spojoval bolestnou reakci na předválečné dramatické situace republiky a celé Evropy s groteskními a černými psychologickými a dějovými motivy Jestliže se tato próza označuje jako psychologický horor správně to vystihuje autorovu a vypravěčovu fascinaci. A young friend of mine encouraged me to finally read this novel Her school had invited her class to a theater production of the book at the prestigious Stavovsk Divadlo National Scene in Prague She was impressed with the performance but expressed the following assessment of the play itself It was psychopathic and it gave me nightmares Like many people outside of the Czech and Slovak Republics I was familiar with Ladislav Fuks short novel through its film adaptation by Juraj Herz The book and the film is considered a modern classic and it was amongst the first East European films to see distribution on DVD back in the early naughts in USA through Facets and in UK on the Second Run imprint While the film also scripted by Fuks follows the book fairly closely in terms of plot the character of Mr Kopfrkingl the cremator of the title is developed very differently in the bookOpening in the late thirties Kopfrkingl is initially portrayed as a fairly typical burgher of Prague He is married to a raven haired beauty whom he adores above all else on earth He has two teenaged children a good position at the crematorium and a nice apartment close to the center of the city He is a normal person on the simple side who does not ask the big uestions He wants what the vast spectrum of humanity wants to belong and feel loved to be accepted and even respected to have security and to prosper and provide for his family He is na ve even willfully na ve using his simplicity as a shield against any threat to his sense of safety and euilibrium Hence he experiences the Jewish people he interacts with through work and as neighbors as kind and friendly and although he does have a drop of German blood in his veins it is not something he gives much thought because he naturally sees himself as Czech before anything else He is not oblivious to the changes that are taking place in the world around him but he feigns ignorance and he picks up on bits and pieces of news and conversation that he makes his own vernacular brushing off any sense of threat with repeated clich s such as we live in a civilized world and people do not tolerate violence However in the background of the story the world is changing rapidly The German Nation is making claims on the Sudetenland and gradually Kopfrkingl is literally made to understand that he is not an island Moreover it is made clear to him that a man with a drop of German blood in his veins and with expertise and ability can advance in society provided that he is adaptable in his world view Given Kopfrkingl s character it is not difficult to imagine that he will find ways to bend his sense of reality ever so slightly to conform to these changes around him and how slowly as the world becomes and insane we end up with a man that is a monster Here is not an evil man not even an overly opportunistic man simply a man who does his best to fit in and adapt The tone of Fuks book is very darkly humorous and his portrayal of Kopfrkingl is grotesue to the point where he almost sabotages the intent of his novel Few books have probably come closer to answering the uestion of how people managed to perform unspeakable acts during the last world war or during any other time in history However the character of Kopfrkingl is perhaps just a touch too pathetic and intrinsically weak to make most readers able to identify with him and accept that the slow change from a good decent person to a demonic arbiter of all that is base and evil is not uniue to this man his time or his place
