A powerful novel The Tartar Steppe s writing and context made an impression on me from the start I read it many years back and now as I revisited it all came back It s about looking for the meanings of life and much The Italian Dino Buzzati immerses the reader in a story of hope and how cruelly such feeling can be wasted leading to disappointment It s the story of a young officer dispatched to serve on a remote fort overlooking the desert It s about waiting for the enemy at the frontier in hope of glory One September morning Giovanni Drogo being newly commissioned set out from the city for Fort Bastiani it was his first posting This was the day he had looked forward for years the beginning of his real life He paints a scenario of frustration and impotence that should not come as a surprise It was true that his heart was full with the bitterness of leaving the old house for the first time full with the fears which every change brings with it with emotion at saying goodbye to his mother but on top of this there came an insistent thought to which he could not uite give a name but which was like a vague foreboding as if he were to set out on journey of no return A seuence of events start to be set and Drogo cannot escape He knows that he must not stay in the Fort but is unable to leave He slips into a routine and we can fell it all happening as if we are there with him But it seemed as if Drogo s existence had come to a halt The same day the same things had repeated themselves hundreds of times without taking a step forward The river of time flowed over the Fort crumbled the walls swept down dust and fragments of stone wore away the stairs and the chain but over Drogo it passed in vain it had not yet succeeded in catching him bearing him with it as it flowed The Tartar Steppe is beautiful and poetical and it could be labelled an anti war novel Drogo is continually waiting in the fronteirs for the tartars who are supposed to arrive any day But they never do And life goes on everywhere else but the hero is always waiting With time Drogo comes to feel strange when among family and friends those that are not part of his destiny any Even I that only moved from one country to another and from city to city know how easy it is to feel out of place with friends that stayed behind as we drifted awayIn a sense this is about mundane existence about not finding meaning in everyday life and thus expecting to face death empty handed when all hopes were for nothingAccording to Tim Parks in the introduction in the English edition The Tartar Steppe was submitted to the publishers in January 1939 There is no need to comment on what followed In any event the book still serves as an alarming reminder that the century that discovered nothingness would go to any lengths however catastrophic to fill that nothingness He could not be accurate

The first posting for the newly ualified junior officer Giovanni Drogo is a distant border fortress Fort Bastiani a kind of military Gormenghast with vast corridors distant redoubts and an ancient regime of mindless inflexible ritual It guards the kingdom against the enemy to the north The forlorn wilderness overlooked by the fortress is called the Tartar Steppe Where was that This was Tartarybut the name had been discarded by the 19th century So this is not a historical novel Our unheroic hero asks an officer about this wilderness A desert Stones and parched earth the call it the Tartar steppe Why Tartar asked Drogo Were there ever Tartars there Long long ago I believe But it is a legend than anything else So the Fort has never been any use None at all said the captainThere are three parts to the universe of this novel There is the city source of the pleasures of ordinary life of taverns pretty women dancing of business careers there is the fort itself austere useless monotonous and soul destroying and there is the wasteland to the north a terrifying blank mystery But strangely the Fort is also clothed in magic Then he seemed to see the yellowing walls of the courtyard rise up into the crystal sky with above then higher till solitary tower crooked battlements crowned with snow airy outworks and redoubts which he had never seen before Never before had Drogo noticed that the Fort was so complicated and immense At an almost incredible height he saw a window In the abyss between bastion and bastion he saw geometrical shadows frail bridges suspended among rooftops strange postern gates barred and flush with the walls ancient machicolations now blocked up long rooftrees curved with the yearsThe sense of time spiraling away in pointless ritual in perpetual maintenance of readiness for an enemy which never arrives and the sense of a normal life voluntarily jettisoned for this utter uselessness and the hypnosis that seems to pin poor Drogo to his drudgery is the whole story of this melancholy book You can make various meanings from it should you be so inclined You can see it as a parable Drogo waiting forever for the Answer to arrive from the Tartar steppe a philosophic or religious answer maybe Ingmar Bergman fans might want to read it as an extended metaphor for the silence of God but others may prefer to find here a beautiful meditation on disappointment institutionalization unfulfillment and resignation Unheroic virtues So many other writers and their buildings were interweaving with Dino Buzzati as I read this everyone says Kafka but also Dracula s castle Mervyn Peake Ballard s lonely landscapes JG Farrell s Majestic Hotel even Tolkien s Minas Morgul there are many of these great constructions of the mind And there are several long passages that lift off into exuisitely sad canticles of how spendthrift human life is how the hours the days and the years fall through our fingers Recommended 45 starsGreat thanks to my friend Selma in Istanbul who pretty much ordered me to read this one
