"While vacationing in a hunting lodge in the Austrian mountains, a middle-aged woman awakens one morning to find herself separated from the rest of the world by an invisible wall. With a cat, a dog, and a cow as her sole companions, she learns how to survive and cope with her loneliness. Allegorical yet deeply personal and absorbing, The Wall is at once a critique of modern civilization, a nuanced and loving portrait of a relationship between a woman and her animals, a thrilling survival story, a Cold War-era dystopian adventure, and a truly singular feminist classic"--… (mais)

truly stunning story about nature, identity, survival, solitude/isolation...i'm left with so much to think about and mixed feelings of grief and hopefulness and catharsis. certified banger ( )

eigenartig, sehr klare Sprache, durch Zeitsprünge manchmal etwas schwer einzuordnen, macht nachdenklich,
Was ist wichtig? Was ist das Leben?
Was will die Autorin sagen?

Geschreven in 1963, in een periode waar de muur en de kerndreiging reëel waren. Het hoofdpersonage moet zien te overleven in een solitair bestaan, de wereld achter de 'wand' is dood. Zij kan overleven dankzij haar dieren (een koe, hond, poes) en de vruchten en planten die ze vindt, soms schiet ze een zwak dier (dat toch zou sterven) om wat vlees te hebben voor haar en haar dieren. De natuur en zij leven in harmonie, ze hebben elkaar nodig en helpen elkaar.
Van bij de aanvang is er een dreiging in het boek, je weet dat de hond zal sterven maar pas helemaal op het einde krijg je de (beetje anti-) climax over wat en hoe het gebeurd is.
De beschrijving van de natuur en vooral haar relatie met de dieren in prachtig beschreven. Van het mmoiste dat ik gelezen heb! ( )

[3.25 stars] Fans of dystopian fiction who expect a heart-pounding adventure will likely be disappointed by Haushofer’s work. First published in the early 1960s and reissued decades later, “The Wall” unfolds at a maddeningly slow pace to explore themes such as isolation, disenchantment and the concept of time. One summary aptly describes the plot as “largely uneventful.” Indeed, about 90 percent of the book involves the protagonist foraging for food and performing routine tasks for a menagerie that includes cats, dogs and cows. But the author embraces the sluggish pace with purpose. The narrator realizes that in slowing down her pace, she has truly connected with the forest. It’s an important message to those who live frenzied lives and fail to observe and appreciate their surroundings in the rush-rush of life. ( )

In "The Wall" the narrator is visiting her cousin and her cousin's husband in their hunting lodge in the Austrian Alps. She was left alone one night while the others went into the nearby town and awakened to find that the area she is in is surrounded by an invisible wall (unroofed). In the distance she can see some people frozen in their tracks. She sees no creature living outside of the wall (not even insects). Her only companions are a dog, a cow, and a cat. She is like Robinson Crusoe - no phone, no lights, no motor car, not a single luxury. She's as primitive as can be.

The actual story takes place 2 1/2 years later, and she is using the last pieces of paper she has to write her "report", as she terms it. She writes how she has learned to survive. She chops wood for heat and cooking. Using some old potatoes and beans she found she grows more of them. She finds wild nettles that she eats for greens. The area she is in is large enough that many deer are living inside the wall. Luckily, she knows how to hunt and dress the deer for meat (though she does not like to do so). She grows grass for hay for the cow and knows how to milk and care for it, and even helps the cow (who was pregnant) give birth. There are a few different lodges inside the wall (many miles apart), and she spends most of her time in two of them at different times of the year. She has, at the time of her writing, pretty much used up the remainder of the food that had been left in the buildings (she long ago used up the flour and has no bread). I certainly could not have done what she does. I don't hunt nor know how to dress a deer, take care of cattle, know what greens one can eat, etc. Nor survive without coffee!

The story of how she survives is very engrossing, as are her thoughts on being left so alone. You learn about her life prior to being trapped within the wall, her family (she had two grown daughters), and other relationships. Perhaps the wall is symbolic of her prior life, she was behind a wall before this, just not a physical one. And how and why is the wall there? What has happened to the rest of the world? Why is she alive?

The book was written in 1968 by German author Marlen Haushofer and has just been reissued this year. It does not seem dated, and is most certainly a book to read. The book is part science-fiction, part feminist, part survivalist, and all thought provoking. I wish more of her books were available in English, I would absolutely read them. ( )

The Wall is a quiet book about domesticity, planting, beauty, the rhythms of keeping house, the land, human nature—and what a person can love in a people-less world. I consider it The Road’s antithesis. In contrast to McCarthy’s characters, who are toiling desperately for their survival in an ugly world, The Wall suggests our disappearance from the planet need not seem a tragedy.

Violent as these storms were, the sky was clear the next morning, and the mists billowed only in the valley. The meadow seemed to be floating along on the clouds, a green and damply gleaming ship on the white foaming waves of a turbulent ocean. And the sea subsided slowly, and the tips of the spruces rose from it wet and fresh.
I had waited much too often and much too long for people or events which had never turned up, or which had turned up so late that they had ceased to mean anything to me.
Loving and looking after another creature is a very troublesome business and much harder than killing and destruction.
If everyone had been like me there would’ve never been a wall.
As long as there is something to love in the forest, I shall love it. And if some day there is nothing, I shall stop living.
