what katie roiphe missed

with 4 comments

It occurs to him, suddenly but while reading Handke, how much fiction writing must have changed – or at least should have changed – since the advent of ubiquitous pornography.

  1. in handke’s case he once mentioned that all one [he] could do was say “they embraced”, and he once made the fine comment in one of his diaries “all their embraces”… if there is a libidinally based writer, it would be handke. when he was writing “left handed woman” he went to see no end of porno films, he was trying to become a monk at that time, since he’d got himself in trouble with all those hot women in paris, etc.

  2. Michael,

    Is there a good biography in English? And if not, in German?

  3. no there is no biography of handke. my pscychoanalytic monograph “wounded love child” at:
    http://handke-discussion.blogspot.com/
    and
    http://analytic-comments.blogspot.com/
    addresses why writing as of early adolescence proved the salvation for someone who is also autistic. so that’s what he does most of the time, and if you piece his book’s together you have a better biography than anyone could ever write. especially no man’;s bay. he himself say that you can “unroll” his work from an autobiographical perspective, but not in some kind of naive way of course. in what sense is “goalie” autobiographical? well, handke is frequently in a murderous mood, hypersensitive, irritable. because bodies nauseate him it is impossible to live with him, and wives tend to split! he’s a great writer, that’s all. and with his engagement in yugoslavia he’s become notorious. he’s a huge exhibitionist! the interesting part of that are his books and plays.
