review Out of Africa

Out of Africa characters ¾ 7 Karen Dinesen joven aristócrata danesa viaja a Kenya para casarse con un primo suyo el barón Bror von Blixen Ambos compran un cafetal pero el matrimonio fracasa al poco tiempo y tras el divorcio Karen se enfrent. 45 stars I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills Everything that you saw made for greatness and freedom and uneualled nobilityA beautiful and evocative memoir of Baroness Karen von Blixen Finecke Out of Africa is a tribute to that magnificent continent from a woman who truly loved both the land and its people One must remember while reading this memoir that it was written during a period of colonialism but I never sensed that Blixen felt herself superior to the native Kikuyu people of Kenya where she worked tirelessly alongside them on her coffee plantation The Kikuyu held much respect for Blixen and she in turn respected their values and traditions She sympathized with various points of view while at the same time admitting that the Kikuyu perhaps had a greater understanding of her than the other way round I reconciled myself to the fact that while I should never uite know or understand them they knew me through and through and were conscious of the decisions that I was going to take before I was certain about them myselfThe descriptions of the landscape and the wildlife of Africa are as stunning as one would expect Everything comes to life with Blixen s vivid and lovely prose One can believe she really wanted to become a part of Africa herself not just one that wanted to claim a piece of it I loved her story about little Lulu a young bushbuck antelope that at one time became a member of the household in her own right Lulu came in from the wild world to show that we were on good terms with it and she made my house one with the African landscape so that nobody could tell where the one stopped and the other began Those who are sensitive to the topic should be warned that there are a couple of hunting scenes and mentions of safaris These were unfortunately common events of the day but uite regrettable nevertheless They did not affect my overall enjoyment of this book The majesty of the lion and lioness in his and her natural environment is something that I will always recall with a sense of aweI m not sure what I liked most about this book the country or the people that Blixen got to know over the twelve or so years she spent on her plantation Both aspects are so very captivating Throughout this time many visitors came and went from her home It was a place of refuge for Europeans traveling to the continent They had been over vast countries and had raised and broken their tents in many places now they were pleased to round my drive that was steadfast as the orbit of a star They liked to be met by familiar faces and I had the same servants all the time that I was in Africa It was also a place of gathering for the ngomas the Kikuyu s great social dances One of the most memorable visitors to the farm was Denys Finch Hatton a gentleman Blixen held in high regard and with whom she spent much time between his various safari outings Denys had watched and followed all the ways of the African Highlands and better than any other white man he had known their soil and seasons the vegetation and the wild animals the winds and smells He had observed the changes of weather in them their people clouds the stars at night One of her greatest joys was when she had the opportunity to fly over Africa with Denys and see its riches from above Parting with her coffee plantation her servants and the Kikuyu was a time of great sadness for Blixen but she made sure to see that all of those who had depended on her and the farm for their own livelihood were taken care of to the best of her ability Blixen will always stand out in my mind as a woman of courage compassion and great dignity Highly recommended to those that enjoy memoirs Africa and admirable women If I know a song of Africa I thought of the Giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back of the ploughs in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers does Africa know a song of me Would the air over the plain uiver with a colour that I had had on or the children invent a game in which my name was or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me or would the eagles of Ngong look out for me

It is November and it is to the point where many of the books in my library pile are meant to check off books remaining in yearly challenges in some capacity Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen the pen name for Karen Blixen is highly regarded As such it was chosen as a buddy read in the group Retro Chapter Chicks this month I also happened to have the book on my bingo card in the group Catching up on Classics so I could read to check off that box as well and now I only have one box left to complete the full card Besides being able to check off multiple boxes at a time I enjoy memoirs and biographies so I was looking forward to reading a memoir of the classic variety There is something about this book that I can not uite pinpoint that just does not do it for meKaren Blixen managed a coffee farm in the Ngong hills of Kenya during the interwar years In her memoir she passionately describes the time and place where she lived One could get a feeling that this memoir focuses on Blixen s love affair with Africa as she describes her farm the relationships she forged with both natives and Europeans the Kenyan way of life and the luscious scenery Yet I need action I need a narrator of a memoir to move uickly from one point to the other or I find myself bored Despite my fascination with the African way of life during the 1920s this memoir read slow As Blixen described the daily life on her farm the prose had me dosing off however when a car went to the bustling city of Nairobi or the natives held a festive dance or people decided to go on a safari I had my interest piued Thus is the contrast between past and modern settingsI do give Blixen credit for managing her farm alone with a delinuent husband for nearly ten years during an era when women were for the most part property of their husbands Blixen was well respected by the natives and enjoyed a working relationship with government officials in Nairobi She treated the native Kikuyu and Masai people with dignity and they in turn asked Blixen to intercede on their behalf in most government matters Because of Blixen s position in Kenyan and Somali society Out of Africa has remained a well read book among feminist circles Critics laud Blixen s spirit of adventure and spunk during this bygone era For that reason I was willing to read to the conclusion and give the memoir the benefit of the doubtWhile I got a feel for Kenya of ninety years ago the prose moved too slow to rank Out of Africa among my favorite classics read The subject matter makes it a worthy read and I would still urge people to give it a try on a lazy day especially as the scenery sounds breathtaking Out of Africa aptly check off the classic I put off reading suare on my bingo card as this was a book that felt like one that I wanted to give up on throughout yet I managed to endure Blixen s stay on African soil A worthy read just not completely my taste3 stars

Out of Africa characters ¾ 7 A rodea hacen de África su nuevo hogar En este relato se basa la película del mismo nombre ue dirigida por Sidney Pollack y protagonizada por Robert Redford y Meryl Streep fué galardonada con ocho Oscars en 198. I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills From its first sentence Out of Africa captivated me It was enchanting old fashioned poignant wistful and insightful Karen Blixen s story of her life in Africa a series of reminiscences from 1914 to 1931 portrays her love for that country the people the land the animals It has a fairy tale uality at times Blixen is a master story teller it s easy to understand why Denys Finch Hatton loved to hear her recount her stories The book however is not without its issues Of its time the memoirs could disturb our modern sensibilities such as when she talks of whites and coloured people or when she describes her lion hunting adventures Remember that at the time it was written there was no banner of political correctness I don t read in her writings a sense of ethnic superiority but she was unapologetically aristocratic Nevertheless the author s love of Africa and its people shines through But that Africa she tells us about is no With her coffee farm losing money despite her desperate efforts to save it her African adventure unravels at the end It was not I who was going away I did not have it in my power to leave Africa but it was the country that was slowly and gravely withdrawing from me like the sea in ebb tide The procession that was passing here it was in reality my strong pulpy young dancers of yesterday and the day before yesterday who were withering before my eyes who were passing away for ever They were going in their own style gently in a dance the people were with me and I with the people well content Highly recommended
