    Profeterne i Evighedsfjorden Read & Download ´ 108 Profeterne i EvighedsfjordenAn epic novel about an unconventional priest set in late eighteenth century Denmark and Greenland This struck me as a cross between Carsten Jensen’s We the Drowned another historical saga from Denmark and one of my favorite novels of all time and Michel Faber’s The Crimson Petal and the White Like the former it features perilous sea voyages and ambivalent father–son relationships; like the latter it’s edgy and sexualized full of lechery and bodily fluids No airbrushing the unpleasant aspects of history hereThe entire story is told in the present tense with no speech marks The greatest achievement of this engrossing but grueling novel is to show that everyone – whether colonizer or colonized priest or parishioner king or subject – is human It took me nearly a month and a half to read this doorstopper; by the end I felt I’d been on an odyssey as long and winding as Morten’s

    Profeterne i Evighedsfjorden Read & Download ´ 108 Profeterne i EvighedsfjordenA remarkable engrossing novel Read it in three days despite it's formidable length finding myself clearing my schedule to keep readingIt's a grim story mostly the story of a weak conflicted man struggling against himself and his impulses It is set against the backdrop of the harsh Danish exploitation of the Greenlandic people and the colonialism which the main character participates in and in his best moments struggles against The central development of the book the rise of an indigenous religious colony in resistance to Danish rule is striking mainly

    Profeterne i Evighedsfjorden Read & Download ´ 108 Profeterne i Evighedsfjorden It is an interesting novel uite singular Whether it is a good novel I do not know though certainly it is thought provoking It is about freedom of which we have just spokenRousseau’s statement that Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains forms a repeating motif through this book Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains These two main clauses continue to affect him deeply the recognition of an and rather than a but to join them together The two statements are in no way opposed Man is born free And he is in chains He shudders with each readingThere are times when the force of the statement comes afresh to our protagonist Morten Falck And yet such an interpretation is incorrect he realizes now The words are a cry a fanfare a direction full of optimism and joy Man be thou free Cast thy chains awayThe story begins and end
