A Time To Every Purpose Under Heaven by Karl O. Knausgaard,James Anderson PDF

By Karl O. Knausgaard,James Anderson

it is the 1560s and Antinous Bellori, a boy of 11, is exploring the woods above his domestic within the north Italian mountains while evening falls. without notice anxious, the boy wanders blindly in the course of the bushes, sensing threat at each flip, until eventually he comes, unseen, upon a clearing during which there stand gleaming beings, one sporting a spear, the opposite a flaming torch: angels ... This occasion is decisive in Bellori's lifestyles, simply as encounters with angels were for others all through heritage. starting within the backyard of Eden and hovering throughout to the current day, we revisit key moments while males have come nose to nose with those intermediaries of the divine: Cain and Abel cultivating their variations murderously; Lot's disgrace in Sodom; Noah's isolation sooner than the Flood; Ezekiel tied to his mattress, prophesying fiercely; and the demise of Christ. Alighting upon those dramatic scenes - from the Bible and past - Knausgaard's mind's eye takes flight: the result's a stunning reveal of storytelling at its majestic, spellbinding best.
