The Castle | novel by Kadare |

A success at all costs must be achieved, and so the Pasha decides to follow a cunning plan: Preview — The Siege by Ismail Kadare. Certainly a book worth reading and reflecting on whether much has changed since the 15th century, especially in our attitudes towards conquest and acquisition.

keshtjelka Gli ottomani si accorgono che gli assalti alla cittadella fortificata risultano vani per la forza con la quale essa resiste. Spaventa anche gli stessi artefici. In that sense, it’s a gripping, effective, and often bloody, work of historical fiction which will appeal to fans of that genre.

I re-confirm that novels have power to help us renew our understandings of what humanity is reminding us of the importance to learn human race’s precious skills and knowledge painfully developed and being practiced all through its history.

One of the strongest iemail by the Quartermaster was that capturing a nation’s castle and trying to annihilate a nation is meaningless and impossible; the best way to destroy a nation would be to corrupt their language, their faith and sense of their own history. Soon enough dust kicked up by Turkish horses is spotted from a citadel.

He wants to ismakl depicted in a positive light for posterity, and he is doubting also like many others the abilities of the Pasha as a leader, though he is voicing his reservations in the most indirect way. The writer is the natural enemy of dictatorship.

The Pasha that is leading the expedition force knows what is at stake for him: I wasn’t sure about this novel as I began it. Not only would it be necessary to abort the siege at the begin of the rainy season, for the Pasha it would mean also personal disgrace and drastic consequences – in the best case early retirement, but more probably a death sentence after his return to the capital.

Since Albania was conquered by the Ottoman Empire, people there were affected by its culture, politics, and other social institutions. Brightly coloured banners, hastily constructed minarets and tens of thousands of men fill the plain below.


My favorite book by this author. These alternate with longer passages describing the experiences of the Turkish army. The author claims that this is not a historical novel, and yet the story is set in the mid 15th century and is a primer on the methods of warfare used at the time.
