This was Ryszard Kapu ci ski s last book written shortly before he died in 2007It is a work of retrospect he isn t writing about recent events or his recent thoughts but writes about his own past and ties it to a book which inspired him The Histories by HerodotusIt is a book written from a position of knowledge often about the times where he was far from knowledgeable a young Polish journalist sent from the recently opened East to India a place he had no former knowledge of and similarly to China where he was no longer welcome due to a political change which occurred the day he arrived although the Chinese left him to work this outHe was given a copy of Herodotus newly translated into Polish book as a gift on the eve of his first departure from Poland and it was a travelling partner for him over the years and as well as analysis of the book and drawing inspiration for his reportage he feels an affinity with the authorThe writing is a combination of his experiences albeit a short version of most in India China and Africa amongst other places and his retelling or examination of The Histories where he draws comparison and takes lessons from the writing of HerodotusAs other reviews point out the writing is at times a little self indulgent but some of the anecdotes are wonderfully written and some of the points are poignant enough to overcome thisI have only read one excerpt book of Kapu ci ski s before The Cobra s Heart and enjoyed that a lot 5 stars I will be keeping an eye out for of his workFor this book 4 Stars for me Titanic – Sobre o Oceano da História version of most in India China and Africa amongst other places and his retelling or examination of The Histories where he draws comparison and takes lessons from the writing of HerodotusAs other reviews point out the writing is at times a little self indulgent but some of the anecdotes are wonderfully written and some of the points are poignant enough to overcome thisI have only read one excerpt book of Kapu ci ski s before The Cobra s Heart and enjoyed that a lot 5 stars I will be keeping an eye out for of his workFor this book 4 Stars for me

Curiosity about humanity permeates this book an interweaving of memoir readings and reflection Listening recording acute observation inuiring wanting to understand what was happening in the present and the past drove both Herodotus and Kapu ci ski 2500 years apart Ryszard Kapu ci ski s career as a Polish reporter posted in foreign countries began in India followed by China then Africa India was his first encounter with otherness the experience of a different world It was then he realized that cultures don t easily reveal their mysteries one has to prepare oneself thoroughly and at length for such encounters A colleague gave him Herodotus to take with him on his first journey the beginning of a life long companionshipIn India Kapu ci ski was cast into deep water didn t want to drown realized that only language could save him and started to think about how Herodotus wandering the world had dealt with foreign languages In Herodotus world Greek was widely spoken Now it was English and Kapu ci ski set out to learn it using Hemingway an 1816 guide to Hindu manners and customs street signs anything to develop the language He realized that he was only seeing and remembering things for which he knew the names and that the words I knew the richer the fuller and variegated would be the world that opened before me and which I could capture He recounts his difficulties as a young man raised in the spirit of brotherhood and individual euality appalled by servitude of any sort coming to grips with India where emaciated men waited to carry him in rickshaws and where sewing on a shirt button would be to deprive someone of a jobAfter a brief return to Poland his next assignment was to China where the brief period of openness between the Let One Hundred Flowers Bloom campaign and The Great Leap Forward froze over very rapidly and his activities were tightly circumscribed China s walls led him to reflectA wall protects against outsiders and helps control those inside It is simultaneously a shield and a trap a veil and a cage Its worst aspect is to turn so many people into its defenders and produce a mental attitude that sees a wall running through everything imagines the world as being divided into an evil and inferior part on the outside and a good and superior part on the inside A keeper of the wall need not be in close proximity to it he can be far away and it is enough that he carry within himself its image and pledge allegiance to the logical principles that the wall dictatesWith each passing day I thought of the Great Wall and as the Great Metaphor p59 61 Daunted by the mighty Asian civilisations he knew he could barely begin to understand Africa began to draw his attention Africa was fragmentary differentiated miniaturized by its multiplicity and thus graspable approachable In Africa he begins to realise the importance of developing an understanding of what underlies catastrophe and destruction not just to report the moments of explosion He began to reach out and talk to people to observe to read to use the Herodotus model traveling and experiencing what he couldKapu ci ski connects his readings of Herodotus to his own career how did Herodotus conduct his enuiries What sources did he use How would he have traveled who would he have talked to where did he tell his stories who was the audience He sees Herodotus as the first to realise the world s essential multiplicity which came as a gradual learning process for Kapu ci ski Herodotus is a story teller who knows the rules of the market place includes a bit of spice He is endlessly curious like Kapu ci ski himself Why are things different from place to place Where do beliefs eg in gods come from Herodotus had a mighty purpose to prevent the traces of human events from being erased by time and to preserve the fame of the important and remarkable achievements produced by both Greeks and non Greeksin particular the cause of the hostilities between Greeks and non Greeks p74 Why is the world split between East and West Why do the two worlds fight each other unto the deathThe first crime is the abduction of a woman Revenge abductions raids murders theft and war Cycles of crime and punishment injustice and revenge follow each other and humiliated people will subsist on dreams of revenge As it is in relations between individuals so it is between nations Whoever starts a war and therefore in Herodotus opinion commits a crime will be revenged upon and punished be it immediately or after the passage of time This relation this inexorable pairing is the very essence of fate the meaning of irreversible destiny in this ancient worldExtracts from Herodotus appear throughout the book Kapu ci ski both retells his narrative of the Greco Persian wars and interrogates it For instance he asks how could the Babylonian men decide to strangle all women except one in their households to conserve supplies during a siege Which men decided Who did the killing Did the men kill the women in their own families Their daughters The women would have known what was to happen The children And after Babylon s eventual fall Darius orders that 50000 women from nearby peoples be gathered into the city to rebuild the population All related without remark by Herodotus but Kapu ci ski is and we are appalled Kapu ci ski regards them both as reporters who depend on encounters with other people reportage is perhaps the form of writing most reliant on the collective p177 In Herodotus time there was no other form of communication but direct personal contact a culture of oral transmission relying heavily on memory He knows memory is fragile unreliable but collects is open about uncertainties tells a good story even when he knows it s fantasy for instance about the Neurians ability to turn themselves into wolves Personally I do not believe this but they make the claim despite its implausibility and even swear that they are telling the truth Inuiring into the present and the past relating what sources tell you even if you doubt what they say recognizing diverse viewpoints seeking the truth in so far as it can be known these are connections that Kapu ci ski regards as the greatest legacy of Herodotus values and sought in his own work A Tradition of Victory variegated would be the world that opened before me and which I could capture He
