Яма AUTHOR Aleksandr Kuprin

Kuprin was the object of a scurrilous attack in the press; he was called a corrupter of youth His book was denounced as pornography Few could face the bitter truth of what he had written Some touching letters from professional prostitutes were the author's first recognition that he had accurately described the hell in which these tormented women existed Today nearly three million copies have been sold in than fifteen different languages and it is a foregone conclusion that Yama will live forever among the world's great book Can I give this book one billion stars The whole universe of stars Having bought tickets to the same called play I decided to read the original source first It wasn t my first encounter with Kuprin since I read some of his stories while studying at school They made controversial impression on me I loved Garnet Bracelet and hated Olesya So I didn t know what to expect from this novel with so polemical a topic Now I regret only one thing that I didn t know about this book before and my burning ambition now is to give The Pit to all my especially female friends I couldn t imagine a book making such a strong impression on me It s been years since I had a page turner in my arms and couldn t put a book down daily and nightly Well this one is this sort of books It absorbs you into its reality and then it presents small but so acute sincere and heart breaking details describing prostitute s lives their casual routine other people s bad vices their devious characters It leaves you speechless and close to tears I believe that only a Russian author was able to catch this horrible decaying environment where women are just meat which you can buy for 0 3 for a visit with such accuracy I highly recommend reading this book to everybody Especially girls and women My life now has divided into life before and after reading it

With an insight and compassion reminiscent of the great French masters of literature Alexander Kuprin probes the sin ridden lives of the inmates of Yama The result is a daring world famous classic which runs the gamut of human emotions from the heart wrenching sacrifice of an afflicted prostitute to the wanton desires of the most degraded manThis book will shock you into an awareness of a great social evil It will also arouse your deepest sympathy for the plight of those unfortunate women who are the victims of our most ete More awful than all awful words a hundredfold awful is some such little prosaic stroke or other as will suddenly knock you all in a heap like a blow on the forehead said the one of the characters about the gift of a writer And that is exactly what this novel did to me multiple times It is set in a brothel in a South city of K I think it is Kiev Some people think it is Odessa But the location is not that important It is about the life of these women and their clients during one day and night and then during the following next months Kuprin s power of observation is enormous He pays a lot of attention to the background But eually within uite limited space he creates a bunch of characters so realistic so vivid that one can almost touch them said by Chukovsky Tolstoy said it is full of dirt Some others criticise him for idealising the prostitutes I did not see any idealisation at all Only if idealisation means giving them back their humanity Kuprin clearly shows that in majority of cases there is no way out for these women But there is no cheap sympathy in this novel In fact Kuprin shows that these attempts of artificial empathy lead to disaster that the desire of superficial understanding would end up in a caricature or additional humiliation There are many extremely poignant moments in the novel A young woman finds out she has got a terrible disease She decides to take a revenge on men through her clients by passing it over She does it until a very young cadet the one of her semi permanent clients arrives and she decides to spare him She just does And she is totally at loss why There is another moment when a student is reading Prevost s Manon Lescaut to a girl who has temporarily escaped And the girl is angry with the heroine for being unfaithful There are many other such nuggets of their life Majority of them hate their clients but they are full of love which they turn to each other Both emotionally and physically I could not believe that such thing is mentioned at that time Kuprin must be incredibly brave Of course judging by our standards of 21th century I would like this theme be visible But 100 years ago it was probably a total anathema There is an episodic but important character Platonov who is clearly a mouthpiece for the author I wish this would be done in a subtle way from the literary point of view but i can forgive Kuprin for this This character has spend a lot of time in this brothel just being there with these girls their management guards doctors etc He is saying a shocking but very profound thing No horrible are the everyday accustomed trifles these business like daily commercial reckonings this thousand year old science of amatory practice this prosaic usage determined by the ages In these unnoticeable nothings are completely dissolved such feelings as resentment humiliation shame There remains a dry profession a contract an agreement a well nigh honest petty trade no better no worse than say the trade in groceries Do you understand gentlemen that all the horror is in just this that there is no horror Bourgeois work days and that is all And I am thinking is it good or is it bad when sex becomes a business It is that such life becomes a kind of normality the same I imagine like in a war zone or maybe actually the same like going to an office everyday One just has to live their life I guess to still feel dignityWhat strikes me is how universal this novel and how modern it is It has written in 1908 1915 and maybe there is no legal brothels in the majority of places now But none of the issues he has raised disappeared There are still human trafficking sex trade and the industry of sex workers There are periodic discussion of legalising sex trade It seems when brothels were legal 100 years ago it did not seem the solution for the problem I do not know enough about the current debate But what i know that often when we talk about these things we forget that there are uniue human destinies behind each particular case Sounds like a cliche i know And this novel is a powerful reminder And sometimes when people write about these things now it reads like ticking the boxes rather than what Kuprin has done I admire your

Rnal viceYama The Hell Hole is uniue Other writers have taken prostitutes for their characters Kuprin has taken the evil of prostitution itself Although he writes of a brothel in a Russian city his moral is not limited to a time and a place Change rubles to dollars move from Yama to the Chicago slums Kuprin's ever honest ever brilliant picture of the ancient business of selling women's bodies for profit still holds its universal meaningWhen the book was first published the Russian censorship mutilated it beyond recognition I am reading this book in Russian while listening to an excellent audio book I am enjoying the book and I import it chapter by chapter into Ling in order to save the words that I need to learn I enjoy the book immensely but this may in large part be due to the excellent audio book that I haveMy son Eric found a print copy of the book and gave it to me for Christmas I have only had access to an e text version of the book needed for Ling and had not been able to locate a print version Eric found this old book in a book store in Brookline near Boston MA where he lives The book is 50 years old 1958
