Sehr blumig geschriebene Erz hlung ber die Magd Silja , die Anfang des 20 Jahrhunderts im l ndlichen Finnland lebt Eindrucksvoll um das damalige Alltagsleben kennenzulernen, aber mitrei end ist die Geschichte nicht Es behandelt unter anderem auch den Konflikt zwischen Roten und Wei en aus der Perspektive der Landbev lkerung. I am surprised that I have never heard of this book by the Nobel Prize winner in Literature of 1939 It was a difficult book to read at the start because it is obviously a translation from Finnish It took me a while to get accustomed to the rythm and style of the writing translated into English, and then I found myself really enjoying the story The Maid Silja is a rather depressing story of the downfall of the Salmelus family who suffer one tragedy after another until, in the end, Silja dies alone in poverty The story is beautifully written.Sillanpaa offers this at the end as a message of the tragic story So ends the tale of the last flourishing of an old family tree that happened to end at that time they are always ending But these trees are not like the trees of the forest There is no real death for a family if we could look unhindered through time, we should see branches of every of every family still aliveIn the widest sense of all we are al members of the same family and can therefore respect each other s struggles in all time You too, the farthest reader in point of time of this narrative, may respect our battles This natural sress of battle is only a sign, the meaning and significance of which we are permitted, indeed constantly compelled, to study.

The Nobel committee said in 1939 that Sillanp won expressly for this book It was.it was an uninspiring book I don t see how I m supposed to harbor any compassion for the main character, a girl named Silja who starts out in her pre teen years as semi well off but then her father dies, the farm is lost, and she leads a life of being a farm maid at one farm then another Then she dies.It sounds harsh to describe a plot so flatly but there is no connection to the main character, no sympathy or empathy, so everything feels dull and listless. If you want romance and a happy ending don t read this we are told on Page 1 that Silja dies young But if you want to learn what life was like in Scandinavia a century or two ago, do read it The farms, forests, lakes and flowers of Finland are beautifully described I learned much about Finnish social customs and farm life hard, but didn t sound unbearable even for hired hands male or female The book has a dreamy quality For the first 150 pages or , there is no clue as to what year it is set in I assumed 18th or 19th century Suddenly we learn it s 1917 and Finland is part of the Russian Empire but, although Bolsheviks appear and cause some trouble, the Revolution doesn t play a large part in the story It s the story of a young woman on her own from a young age after the death of her loving father , who possesses a certain nobility, never whines or gives up, and might even be said to die happy I salute all the real Siljas. Esta novela narra la historia de Silja, una chica que queda hu rfana de padre y madre en una localidad rural de Finlandia, poco antes de que estalle la guerra civil en el pa s y el conflicto entre bolcheviques y blancos Silja pasar toda su corta vida trabajando en distintas casas como sirvienta En una de ellas conoce a Armas, un joven del que se enamora pero que ser enviado al frente y ca do en combate.Un libro breve, de apenas 200 p ginas, pero bastante insulso La historia de la sirvienta Silja es aburrida, cae en lo mon tono de idas y venidas de casas, amos y otros sirvientes Tampoco aparece pr cticamente nada hasta casi el final del contexto hist rico de la novela, la guerra civil finlandesa, que era uno de los atractivos para m en esta novela Sillanp gan el Nobel de Literatura en 1939, pero en cuanto a esta historia, me ha dejado fr o. I loved the melancholic beauty of this book I wished all good things for Silja during the entire book, even if the reader knows right from the start her life is not going to be about lasting happiness, but about giving things up, one by one Sometimes, no matter how kind a soul you are or how hard you work, you won t be rewarded get what you deserve The parts that took place during the Finnish civil war first years of independency of Finland and Russian revolution were fascinating and showed events from the perspective of ordinary people I might have given 5 stars without some repetitions and some unnecessary sentences of foreshadowing. Read this in Finland as an exchange student It seemed to me that it revealed a lot about the essential character of the Finns and the land they love Interesting history and story. I ve started this book three hours ago, and I m already through the half of it It s an enjoyable reading, as a fan of Scandinavian literature, i can say that this book gives you a good opportunity to observe and contemplate the life of the finnish people at the end of the 19th century It also takes you on a journey where you ll be smiling imagining the young Silja running outside in the sun , going sad there are some sad deaths throughout the book and overall enjoying the descriptions about the Finnish scenery and life there in general.
