    Marco Polo Now I shall tell you of the beautiful city of Nottingham where the buildings are made mostly of blue glass onyx and sausagemeat The men of the city trade in fur spices and photographs of each other with their respective spouses All the men have large phalluses sometimes so large they must cut pieces out of the tops of their front doors before they can exit their houses in the morning This is a city of dream

    “In Xanadu did Kubla Khan A stately pleasure dome decree Where Alph the sacred river ran Through caverns measureless to man Down to a sunless sea” Samuel Taylor Coleridge – Kubla KhanThere are a countless number of cities but the most mysterious are those that we build in our imagination Marco Polo arrives and he tells Kublai Khan about ghostly cities he visited during his journeys Marco enters a city; he sees som

    It's easy to describe what 'Invisible Cities' is not rather than what it is as it's really very difficult to ascertain which category it can be put into; it neither has a clear plot nor characters are developed as they normally are it can't be called a novel or collection of stories can't be put in any one genre since it surpasses so many; but still something extraordinary something which can't be described in

იტალიურიდან თარგმნა დარეჯან კიკოლიაშვილმა იტალო კალვინოს”უხილავი ქალაქები” ცნობილი პოსტმოდერნისტული ნაწარმოებია რომელშიც გადმოცემულია მარკო პოლოს წარმოსახვითი საუბრები ყუბილაი ყაენთანსახელგან?. A five star reviewI hate flying The claustrophobia of it So usually when I return to Italy after visiting London I catch the train to Paris and then the night train to Venice That s my little extravagance I catch the night train to Venice and not Florence for one moment The moment of walking out of the station of Santa Lucia and beholding the Grand Canal I sit on the steps and let all the activity on the canal wash through me I m not sure why this moment means so much to me It s not a moment I can or even want to explain I remember a line from a novel I read where a character gazing out at the Grand Canal says I keep wondering when all this will happen to me Perhaps that s it Venice articulates some deep desire we all have or evokes a memory of something that has never uite happened Reading this for a second time is a bit like visiting Venice for a second time A little bit of the magic fades but in compensation you notice lots of wonders you missed the first time I read it in English this time Now and again the writing seemed a bit clunky The inferno of the living is not something that will be if there is one it is what is already here That if there is one is a bit of an eyesore But it s no less clunky in Italian L inferno dei viventi non ualcosa che sar se ce n uno you can t blame the translator for translating it word for word instead of trying to improve the fluency of Calvino s prose This is probably the greatest book ever written about tourism about the urge to escape the confines of where we live Essentially Marco Polo is a tourist And we all as tourists need an audience to show the images of our travels to Kublai Khan is the audience the vicarious tourist He s also a warlord and by inference every warlord intent on conuering new territory is a tourist and every tourist is a warlord in embryo We all want to conuer new lands We re all hungry for new discoveries new exotic possessions But we all eventually have to go home Calvino is constantly making the point that every city is essentially what we bring to it He s brilliant at capturing the deep division of perspective between the tourist and long term inhabitant Florentines are famous for never looking at the city s monuments It s become how they distinguish themselves from the tourist They turn a blind eye They stare at their phones while walking across Piazza della Signoria Venice has almost been turned into a romance theme park it s called upon to provide a standard collection of microwaved emotions as efficiently as an atm provides cash One of the wonders of Venice now is the people who live there You need them to understand something of the true nature of the city To get behind the postcard fa ade There are times when it s much rewarding to watch a man bump a barrow down the steps of a nondescript bridge than gaze blankly at the fa ade of San Marco Sometimes it s these kinds of details that bring a place alive for us Calvino s deployment of these telling details is probably this book s most stellar achievement and what makes it such a joy to read An alternative four star review Calvino is one of the sacred cows of literature He s one of those writers who we re tempted to pretend to like than we really do like Proust and Joyce for fear of revealing some intellectual inadeuacy Interestingly for me Virginia Woolf still isn t one of these scared cows When people don t like Woolf they have of a license to vent their scorn It still hasn t been officially recognised that Woolf is a great writer by men at any rate Often when there s a list of the best novels ever written Woolf won t feature at all or if she does it ll be her lesser but easier books like Mrs Dalloway or A Room of One s Own that makes the list To be fair her genius is recognised in Italy and France it s in the UK she tends to divide opinion So Invisible Cities vs The Waves Invisible Cities is absolutely brilliant and inspired for the first fifty pages But then it wanes a bit gets a bit repetitive Seems odd to say about a book of only 145 pages but might it have been better had it been a bit shorter The contents page has the appearance of some mathematical formula like a star map so perhaps there s some hidden genius in the design of this book But if there is I didn t get it and nor did anyone else judging by the few reviews I ve read It felt to me like the number of invisible cities we get was random and some were uninspired If you took a single page out of The Waves it would collapse You could take ten pages out of Invisible Cities without it being noticed Also now and again Calvino is perhaps guilty of the kind of vacuous platitudes you ll find strewn throughout the pages of The Alchemist Falsehood is never in words it is in things That kind of thing Looks great if you skim read it becomes only a half truth if you stop to think about it So for me The Waves wins over Invisible Cities in a heavyweight wrestling match Back to tourismOnce upon a time the world was getting smaller Now it s getting bigger again as terrorism creates and no go areas You could say terrorism is a war on tourism It s diminishing one of the biggest cultural phenomenon of our times That s probably the most significant change terrorism is making to the world It s making us think twice about travelling I watched a heartbreaking report from Aleppo last night a once magical town that none of us will ever see again How long before it becomes one of Calvino s Invisible Cities The Kingdom to Italy after visiting London I catch The Road to Lichfield train Tales of Ancient Egypt to Paris and The Perfect Murder (Inspector Ghote, the night Lislam Et Le Réveil Arabe train The Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Literature in English to Venice That s my little extravagance I catch The White Guns the night The Book of Football Quotations train Governess Gone Rogue (Dear Lady Truelove, to Venice and not Florence for one moment The moment of walking out
