'Go Went Gone', by Jenny Erpenbeck, trans. (from German) Susan Bernofsky - review

  • Author: Webb, Kate
  • Is Part Of: The Spectator
  • Description: The title of Jenny Erpenbeck's Go Went Gone , and the autumnal tone of its beginning -- a classics professor retires, leaving him at home raking leaves, mulling over memories of his wife and wondering about the body in a nearby lake -- suggests that this will be a book of endings, something akin to Anita Brookner's stories of self-absorbed people in the twilight of their lives. The body submerged in the lake and Richard's interest in underground systems (escape routes from the Nazis, tunnels from the Middle Ages) suggest that beneath the 'veneer' of reality, much in life is hidden or suppressed. Richard's dawning awareness brings to mind Ted Hughes's epiphany, the fruit of his engagement with East European dissidents, about the 'spoilt brats of Western civilisation... deprived of the revelations of necessity'.
