Time has slipped by so uicklythat his heart has not had a chance to grow oldWhile Dino Buzzati was putting the finishing touches to his 1938 novel the world outside began a slow and oblivious path looming towards a war that shook the very foundations of mother Earth Is it possible Buzzati knew what lied ahead as his story here revolves around anticipating war waiting watching fearful of what may appear over the horizonThe Tartar Steppe is both a scathing critiue of military life pre war and a meditation on the independent thirst for glory Giovanni Drogo a young officer is posted to a remote mountain garrison an anomalously surreal fort smack bang in the middle of nowhere known as fort Bastiani which sits overlooking the vast and eerie Tartar Steppe baron landscape gaining it s title as supposedly Tartars once lived on the other side of the desert Leaving the city by horseback Drogo has no idea what to expect on arrival and starts conjuring up thoughts of just what his life is going to be like Never thinking on staying long he is suddenly overtaken by the passing of time leading to weeks months and years of service and never seeing any signs what so ever that a possible army could be looming far off in the distance biding time ready to strikeBecoming distinguished with fellow guards he would rise in rank over the years and slowly come to terms with his empty existenceOver the course of many years the fort would be downgraded and almost forgotten about by the powers that be and the world around it a place of solitude but an important place of solitude nonetheless as there is always no matter how small a chance an invading army will march through the mist and take those holding the fort by surpriseOn a mysterious level the novel works so well at never specifying time or place it could be 20th century but then again as nothing is ever related to this we could be going back much furtherWhen you here of the the Northern Kingdom it gets me thinking of centuries ago but again it s a clever way to add even greater dimension to it s already uite bizarre story The namelessness of the setting was surely deliberate not only are the hopes and ambitions of the characters in total vain but just as we are struggling to care about their fate we also cannot care about their country which after all doesn t even exist This is easy to get over as Buzzati writes with a big heart you truly feel ever step every though and every action of Giovanni Drogo and I am not ashamed to admit was left close to moist eyes by the final haunting passagesThis is very much a literary novel by which I mean that Buzzati wasn t trying to tell a story but express something deeper through the medium of a novel This is the sort of novel that professors of literature love because it begs for a close reading and that most genre readers hate because the plot and the characters are just symbols to express the author s intent Camus Kafka and calvino spring to mind when thinking of similarities with Kafka s The Castle a good point of reference in terms of overall tone On the one hand this is a bleak desolate and droll story of the wasting away of ones life but on the other an unseen tension is lurking even though it would appear the novel has absolutely no tension of any sort Something just bothered me the whole way through but can t put my finger on what that something is there is obviously to this work than meets the eye The leaden prose is not lacking in descriptive detail and the dialog is expressive enough with help from an authorial style that tells us exactly what each character is actually thinking to capture the empty years and desolation for which the Tartar Steppe is a metaphorFor all his boredom Drogo is always anticipating war with an excitement but also a lingering sadness that his day will never come and one day he will be cast off into oblivion having never any heightsThis was a read where going into it was a complete unknown I knew nothing of Buzzati or his Tartar Steppe but have come out on the other side realizing a uite uniue piece of writing has gone before my eyesAnother page turns and the months and years go rolling on by Good Behavior knew what lied ahead as his story here revolves around anticipating war waiting watching fearful of what may appear over the horizonThe Tartar Steppe is both a scathing

Meanwhile time was slipping past beating life out silently and with ever increasing speed there is no time to halt even for a second not even for a glance behind Stop stop one feels like crying but then one sees it is useless Everything goes by men the seasons the clouds and there is no use clinging to the stones no use fighting it out on some rock in mid stream the tired fingers open the arms fall back inertly and you are still dragged into the river the river which seems to flow so slowly yet never stops This is the book that inspired Coetzee s Waiting for Barbarians It is also worthy of comparisons with Kafka that it has attracted the protagonist is similarly helpless and finds himself losing to circumstances he doesn t understand until it is too late The amazing story can be read in at least three different ways 1 As a criticism of military life On the face of it it is about the hardships of military life and the meaninglessness of those very hardships Though there is no war still two soldiers die needlessly the first because of the ridiculous discipline of army life and second while carrying out a meaningless field activity And then monotony of it as soldiers waste their eyes and lives in guarding a distant fort where nothing ever seems to happen In fact they are desperately waiting wishing for a war so that they can have some action in life and achieve glory What kind of glory One wonders since their senior in the town didn t even remember and didn t care to be reminded of the name of the only soldier who died in the line of duty Also the conditioning which dehumanises a man to mere unit of lifeless system But the sentry was no longer the Moretto with whom his comrades joked freely he was only a sentry at the Fort in a dark blue uniform with a black bandolier absolutely identical with all the other sentries in the darkness 2 The arrested life He deludes himself this Drogo with the dream of a wonderful revenge at some remote date he believes that he still has an immensity of time at his disposal So he gives up the petty struggle of the day to day existence The day will come he thinks when alL accounts will be paid with interest Normally people
