Mayakovsky : a biography by Bengt Jangfeldt( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few poets have led lives as tempestuous as that of Vladimir Mayakovsky. Born in 1893 and dead by his own hand in 1930, Mayakovsky packed his thirty-six years with drama, politics, passion, and--most important--poetry. An enthusiastic supporter of the Russian Revolution and the emerging Soviet State, Mayakovsky was championed by Stalin after his death and enshrined as a quasi-official Soviet poet, a position that led to undeserved neglect among Western literary scholars even as his influence on other poets has remained powerful. With Mayakovsky, Bengt Jangfeldt offers the first comprehensive biography of Mayakovsky, revealing a troubled man who was more dreamer than revolutionary, more political romantic than hardened Communist. Jangfeldt sets Mayakovsky's life and works against the dramatic turbulence of his times, from the aesthetic innovations of the pre-revolutionary avant-garde to the rigidity of Socialist Realism and the destruction of World War I to the violence--and hope--of the Russian Revolution, through the tightening grip of Stalinist terror and the growing disillusion with Russian communism that eventually led the poet to take his life

Axel Munthe : the road to San Michele by Bengt Jangfeldt( Book )

Axel Munthe: The Road to San Michele tells for the first time the riveting life-story of an extraordinary individual, who came to define the times he lived in. The precociously bright son of a Swedish pharmacist, Axel Munthe worked under Jean Martin Charcot, and in 1880, became the youngest doctor in French history. By the 1890s, he was world-famous for his healing powers, believed by some to be supernatural. He moved in the most colourful and exalted circles of fin de siecle Europe, counting amongst his friends Henry James, Howard Carter, Rainer Maria Rilke, Lady Ottoline Morrell and Count Zeppelin. Though physician to the Swedish court, where he became the lover of the Crown Princess Victoria, Munthe was more at home with nature than with people. He travelled through remotest Lapland, as well as across Europe, and his great love was animals, whom he went to great lengths to protect. In 1929 he published 'The Story of San Michele', an account of his life, shot through with his love for Italy and Capri, where he built a bird sanctuary and the house of his dreams, the Villa San Michele. Bengt Jangfeldt is the first person to have gone through Munthe's diaries, letters and notebooks to produce this definitive account of one of 20th Century Europe's most vibrant figures
Stavka--zhiznʹ : Vladimir Mai︠a︡kovskiĭ i ego krug by Bengt Jangfeldt( Book )

Med livet som insats är ett gripande och fascinerande porträtt av den mytomspunne legenden Majakovskij. Med stor inlevelse och lätt hand skildrar Bengt Jangfeldt inte bara ett stort men tragiskt människoliv utan en hel era i Sovjetunionens mörka historia.Bengt Jangfeldts biografi över Vladimir Majakovskij är berättelsen om en poet som efter revolutionen 1917 blev kommunismens främste härold, som älskade Revolutionen men som vid 36 års ålder tog sitt liv, besviken på utvecklingen i sovjetsamhället och söndersliten av privata konflikter. Med livet som insats bygger till stor del på tidigare okänt källmaterial och är den första omfattande biografin över Majakovskij på något västerländskt språk. Majakovskij levde verkligen med livet som insats, han brann för sin samtid men bemöttes med kyla eller fientlighet från myndigheternas sida. Han besjöng sin musa, Lili Brik, i några av den ryska poesins vackraste kärleksdikter. Triangelrelationen mellan Majakovskij, Lili och hennes man är en av de mest legendomsusade i den ryska litteraturens historia. Boken fick Augustpriset 2007 för bästa fackbok med motiveringen: "En biografi av internationell klass där författarens förtrogenhet med den ryska verkligheten och kretsen kring Majakovskij får texten att pulsera av liv. Jangfeldts berättelse tillsammans med illustrationerna och lyrikurvalet låter oss komma nära den ryska revolutionens främste poet." Tre frågor till Bengt JangfeldtOm du med tre ord skulle beskriva Majakovskij - vilka skulle du då välja?Genial, självutlämnande, desperat.Vad överraskade mest under arbetet med boken? Kom det fram något som gjorde dig förvånad?Det som överraskade mig mest var hur svårt det var att skriva en biografi över en person som jag trodde mig känna väl redan innan. Den omfattande nya forskning jag tvingades till för att kunna skriva boken gav mig en delvis ny bild av Majakovskij, hans omgivning och hans epok. Slutligen, varför ska man läsa Med livet som insats?Därför att Majakovskij är en genial poet, därför att hans livsöde och epoken han levde i är exceptionella, därför att många fakta tidigare varit okända. Den som är intresserad av Majakovskij har dessutom knappast något val, eftersom det inte fi nns någon annan biografi över honom...PresscitatLysande om Vladimir Majakovskij. //Svenska DagbladetRevolutionens poet har fått en mästerlig levnadsteckning i Bengt Jangfeldts nya biografi. //Dagens Nyheter [Elib]
