Ent but he was also a man with a broken heart Ivan Bunin was the first Russian to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature 1933 I have long admired his short fiction so it was interesting to read his diary of life during the civil war that followed hard on the heels of the October Revolution In his Cursed Days Diary of a Revolution one learns uickly that Bunin was dead set against the Bolsheviks almost at times to the point of madnessThis is the hellish secret of the Bolsheviks to kill all sensitivity People live as best they can their sensitivity and their imagination have been taken away from them for the people have crossed the fatal line A revolution is not a tea party said Mao Tse tung It is an act of violence by which one class overthrows another Nobel prize winning author Ivan Bunin born in genteel circumstances could not but agree In Cursed Days he chronicles the dark side of Bolshevik revolution It was written while chaos in the streets was ongoing and rumors about the ephemeral victories off the White armies were rife Bunin has tough things to say about cynical revolutionaries like Trotsky and Lenin and their clueless enablers among students and intellectuals He also berates The Folk for turning into ravening beasts the minute the yoke was lifted Some parts are hard to read as the highly strung Bunin tries to write despite feeling the choking dizziness chills nausea sweating and trembling of anxiety How he escaped to Paris without having a heart attack amazes me The tragedy of Russia and those who were deeply familiar with it and could see it unfolding in real time The imposed farce of revolution against everything that was sacred A drunken naive heard being led through a play written by foreign masterminds under the slogans of freedom and euality Absolute helplessness and humiliation of Russian intelligentsia What makes this book even valuable is the fact that it was written by a man who stayed loyal to his principles till the end of his life This diary is not a result of mood swings of a white aristocrat but an honest voice from his very core Bunin till his death neither sold this voice nor used it as an excuse to betray his country There is a film inspired by Bunin s works including this diary Sunstroke2014 by N Mikhalkov I recommend it to those who have enjoyed the book and can find the subtitled version of the film Very deep and densely filled with allegor Hate to interrupt old naive fellow Bunin but revolution is a nasty time to live thank you very much I wonder where he was during the First world war when ALL the world suffered And why is he so positive about Denikin Kolchak Korneev Hadn t he heard enough terrible things about them They were no better than some local bolshevik s government At least communists presented some form of legal administration while white forces couldn t cooperate with each other even in the face of the same enemy Anyone who says this is depressing hasnt read Shalomov Its witty erudite learned depressing angry sexy sad dreamy detailed co.

I wanted to like Cursed Days than I did I was hoping to learn about the Russian Revolution during the 100th anniversary of this period but Bunin s diary from Moscow and Odessa in 1918 1920 is not the place to learn about detailed historical fact First of all there s not much of a narrative no beginning or end to speak of and not much of a story in between Many events and historical figures are mentioned but there is very little plot continuity I was a bit frustrated by the emphasis on rumors Bunin records everything he hears much of which turn out to be false information The translator s footnotes helpfully point out which statements are true and which are incorrect but it s definitely disruptive to have to pause every page or two to figure out the veracity of what s documented Where this work shines is its recording of the attitudes and emotional state of society in general and Bunin in particular as well as the situation of uncertainty and confusion brought about by the breakdown and reshaping of a societyI d probably rate this a 25 out of 5 stars It should definitely hold some interest for readers who want to know about the Russian revolution but it s focus on rumors makes it too imprecise for a history book and its lack of a story or memorable characters makes it too non literary for a novel I guess it s a type of memoir but not an especially great one I suppose I prefer to read works that were conceived as a coherent project from the start rather than published after the fact in a format not originally intended at the time of writing Awesome book shame it appeared to be that tiny Someone need to dig out the other Bunin s notes from Odessa Ivan Bunin was a smart sophisticated and decent man and a very good writer This book has moments of beauty and freuently conjures up scenes and characters that give great insight into the life and times of revolutionary Russia And Bunin was undeniably right in seeing the Russia Revolution as a great tragedy that started with death and suffering and then went on to death and greater suffering So if he was such a good guy and a good writer and so right in his bottom line view of the situation why did I find this book unsatisfying and lacking in perspective I think that it is because Bunin was also a bit of a snob and because he had an Old World perspective that made it impossible for him to understand or appreciate the wave of modernism that was sweeping through 20th Century culture At one point in the book he describes his irritation at Mayakovsky s brashness at an event showing that he completely misunderstood Mayakovsky whose artistry lay precisely in his irritating brashness and in his blurring of the line between life and art Bunin sees a decline in the uality of writing but he takes potshots at easy targets and misses the great ualities of some of the artistic innovation of his era Much of the book is merely sad and bitter Bunin could have been describing himself when he says of Gleb Uspensky that he had an abundance of nobility and tal.
