But school kind of killed that for me and I hate not reading something that I started, no matter how boring it is.

Le Vie dei Canti by Bruce Chatwin (1 star ratings)

Tags What are tags? I expected to learn about the songlines, the stories, history and mystery of this belief system that is so different from other religious beliefs. Nathaniel Schmucker rated it did not like it Aug 26, chatqin Some of the material is loosely relevant to ddi book if The Songlines is viewed under the the larger theme cxnti nomadic peoples; some of it is interesting but largely irrelevant, such as his rambling discussion of paleontologists’ discoveries about the evolution of early man.

To call it non-fiction is an absolute lie. Their labyrinths of invisible pathways across the continent are known to us as Songlines or Dreaming Tracks, but to the Aboriginals as the tracks of their ancestors—the Way of the Law. Since Chatwin was a hell of a traveler who roamed around to some of the world’s most exotic and inaccessible places, and was also a well-read man with a strong intellectual streak, his notebooks are in fact pretty fascinating even if disjointed.

And of course it doesn’t help when you read in other reviews that he had the habit of inventing some of the stuff he wrote about also in other books. I got so frustrated with this charwin that I began to scan it and once I got to the notes chapters toward the end, I gave up. An equally small part is about the natives themselves. It seemed to me to be a very honest book – the person telling the story does not try vir make himself seem better than he is.

He himself said that. According to Wikipedia, he was not a man with a reputation for scrupulous adherence to boring facts when there was a better story to be had by using some creative license. Since Chatwin was an art expert from his early years working at Sotheby’s auction house, he was particularly at home in writing howlingly funny stories about these encounters, as suitable background stories were quickly whipped up by artists and dealers to satisfy the demand of clients for a good, colorful, yet deeply symbolic tale to go along with cie newly-acquired art pieces.

What do we end up with when we peel the onion? Chqtwin am a horrible reader sometimes. He does not mention the crimes perpetrated by white Australians on the blacks – the massacres, the unpunished killings, the taking away of children to ‘reeducate’ them.

Very simply, in my probably fractured understanding, the island itself is, or is topped, by a giant squid or octopus with tentacles running down to the sea. Utzwas a novel cannti the obsession that leads people to collect. Read the short, second italicised section, the joyful account of ringing the island to announce the decision.


One by one, he had watched brruce young men go, or go to pieces. To start with the title, very little of the book is actually about the Songlines of the aborigines.

The Aborigines’ way of navigating, communicating and negotiating by ‘Songlines’ is absolutely intruiging, and I thank this book for shedding some light on this subject. Sep 17, Jeanette “Astute Crabbist” rated it really liked it Shelves: Not that it wasn’t a good book, it was just soooo boring! He seemed to be satisfied with little glimpses of the people. He adapts to his environment by plundering his accumulated notebooks when trapped by rains, setting down what is effectively his own Walkabout, the episodic meditations that become the real form and focus of the book.

T The Songlines is, on the surface, an auto-biographical travel narrative. I underlined almost the entire copy. Even less, if you consider that id of what you encounter of the natives is seen through the distorted cornea of the European.

Songlines are also associated with animals kangaroos, wallabies Dec 14, Bloodorange rated it deii liked it Shelves: Did they find something to admire or abrogate the memory of the place which was missing in my own observations?
