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 whilst evening falls. unexpectedly nervous, the boy wanders blindly throughout the timber, 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 during to the current day, we revisit key moments whilst males have come head to head with those intermediaries of the divine: Cain and Abel cultivating their changes murderously; Lot's disgrace in Sodom; Noah's isolation earlier than the Flood; Ezekiel tied to his mattress, prophesying fiercely; and the loss of life 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.
