Delivering a book from the ledge, it is not necessary to throw out the reader, says Kirill Kobrin Lately, talk about the revival of the "paper book. " Within the English-speaking world, the unanticipated successes of large bookselling stores like the Waterstones, which were just lately on the brink of destroy, are discussed, and now that they not only make ends meet, but have even small profits. In the slide of 2015, a message came out that Waterstones was eliminating some electronic readers through some strategically important windows and putting hard replicates instead of them; a number of experts, emboldened, announced the unavoidable death of electronic books. Surely the situation is much more complicated, though at the moment the trend seems to be just that. I was interested in this specific media hype only one details, which, it seems, no one seen. Not even a detail, but the intonation. Gloat. If the community - including those who are every day looking in matte window screens Kindle or glare quads aypadov - just waiting around for the moment when you can throw away your chosen device and a pleasure to disclose the good old paper publication. So I thought: what inhibits all of them / us from doing this right now, without awaiting a change in the global tendency? No, no, I have no desire to read morality along with blame the public for hypocrisy. Let the publicists do it. I am interested in another - the origin of this gloating, which in fact is completely unreflected, spontaneous. Which means that the internal conflict together with the electronic book is deep and in many cases partly drowned in the connection subconscious. Moreover, it seems in my experience that from the outset the fact on the use of electronic book readers have caused a large part of the audience a type of remorse, repressed, displaced by voice of common sense, fiscal and environmental viability - but nevertheless, these scruples ended up! And now they suddenly arrived, turning to gloating. Like, we all know these electronic books - they may not be real. Naturally, the issue with the "paper renaissance" is try really hard to discussed, especially by the left-wing intelligentsia press. British "Guardian" published an essay through Robert Makkrama (Robert McCrum), which attempts to overcome the return of hard copies with a new heyday - it would seem, has been repeatedly left - "serious novel, micron and even with the advent of Modernism 3. 0. "A one hundred year ago, the literary atmosphere, broken down into mysteriously parallel elements (the decline from the Victorian novel, the telegraph and telephone revolutions, the rapid development of the hit, especially the journal one) inspired a new type of brain and, finally, a new ways to the imagination. This trend will be later known as "modernism", literary dividends which will be "Ulysses, " "The Waste Property, " "Mrs. Dalloway" and a library compiled from the functions of literary inventors coming from Faulkner to Beckett. inches The reasoning is awkward, I would say, logically unkempt, messy, disheveled. How the telegraph with the cellular phone could lead to the decline of the Victorian novel and impact the transition of Joyce from your aesthetics of the Dubliners to the aesthetics of Ulysses is usually impossible to say. Perhaps an additional is to trace the delicate lines of addiction, discuss the change of the zeitgeist, or even try in a Marxist Cesar's Way DOWNLOAD PDF/EPUB [Cesar Millan] to explain all of the over by the transition from normal capitalism of the times of "free trade" to the state-monopoly step. But do it carefully, attempting to really find out what exactly you want to say, and in no circumstance mixing the appearance of the conveyor with the invention of the literary "stream of consciousness". Furthermore, a journalist omnivorous columnist, forced feed on a regular chore, - she, also, part of the current "literary environment", which, according to Robert Makkrama, our eyes creates Modernism 3. 0. And the peculiarity of this environment - as opposed to what happened one hundred years ago - is in the universal accordance, in that one can be easily transferred to another using purely technical and external methods. And so forth ad infinitum. I will also note the sacred faith of McCram in historical analogie. If at the beginning of the last centuries some technical and socio-cultural changes were to produce modernism 1 . 0, today more revolutionary changes will certainly help to make modernism 3. 0. Therefore , everything is interconnected and also everything resembles everything. Here is the current environment - and it will certainly return the demand to get paper books. How more? At the end of McCrum's inarticulate essay or dissertation, you can read a funny addition from editorial staff. It claims that the text was changed after the first electronic distribution, as the author called Marlon James's novel "The Simple History of Seven Killings" in 2015 and "A Short History of Seven Killings". In the paper model of the Guardian, the error naturally remained. On paper, background can not be corrected. And a couple of weeks before this article, I learn a collection of small essays by the Italian Roberto Kalasso.
