Elizabeth Gilbert

"

Elizabeth Gilbert was born in Waterbury, Connecticut in 1969, and grew up on a small family Christmas tree farm. From earliest memory, all she ever wanted to do was write.Elizabeth attended New York University, where she studied political science by day and worked on her short stories by night. After college, she spent several years traveling around the country, working in bars, diners and ranches, collecting experiences to transform into fiction. These explorations eventually formed the basis of her first book a short story collection called Pilgrims, which was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway award. During these early years in New York, she also worked as a journalist for such publications as Spin, GQ and The New York Times Magazine. She was a three-time finalist for The National Magazine work, and an article she wrote in GQ about her experiences bartending on the Lower East Side eventually became the basis for the movie Coyote Ugly.In 2000, Elizabeth published her first novel, Stern Men(a story of brutal territory wars between two remote fishing islands off the coast of Maine) which was a New York Times Notable Book. In 2002, Elizabeth published The Last American Man - the true story of the modern day woodsman Eustace Conway. This book, her first work of non-fiction, was a finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award.Elizabeth is best known for her 2006 memoir Eat, Pray, Love, which chronicled her journey alone around the world, looking for solace after a difficult divorce. The book was an international bestseller, translated into over thirty languages, with over 7 million copies sold worldwide, and a movie version starring Julia Roberts. The book became so popular that, in 2008, Time Magazine named Elizabeth as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.Elizabeth Gilbert lives in rural New Jersey with her husband.

Samenvatting

„Signatura svih stvari" rijetko je literarno dostignuće:

panoramski roman o životu i ljubavi

koji uspijeva uhvatiti bit vremena koje opisuje.

Washington Post


Elizabeth Gilbert ugledna je američka spisateljica koja je svjetsku slavu stekla memoarima Jedi, moli, voli. Ovom knjigom Gilbert se vraća fikciji s fascinantnom pričom smještenom u 19. st. o životu botaničarke Alme Whittaker. To je značajan roman o velikom i važnom stoljeću koji kritičari nazivaju hommageom svim genijima i napretku ideja.


Roman prati sudbinu obitelji Whittaker – počevši od poduzetnog Henryja, rođenog u siromaštvu u Engleskoj koji s vremenom stječe golemo bogatstvo u trgovini kininovcem u Americi i postaje najbogatiji čovjek u Philadelphiji. Njegova darovita kći Alma, rođena 1800., botaničarka je velikog talenta. Ona se bori s ograničenjima koja tadašnji svijet nameće ženama i pitanjem – što znači biti neudana žena i znanstvenica u to doba? Istodobno njezina strast za znanošću isprepliće se s neostvarenim senzualnim i erotskim željama. Znanstvena istraživanja vode je u proučavanje pitanja evolucije, a u zrelim godinama zaljubljuje se u umjetnika Ambrosea Pikea kojeg privlači upravo suprotno – svijet duhovnog i magijskog. On je nadahnut djelom Signatura rerum njemačkog filozofa-mistika s kraja 16. st. Böhmea i vjeruje kako se u svemu oko nas može pročitati Božja šifra. Njihov odnos turbulentan je i doživljava začuđujući obrat.


Ovaj znalački napisan roman vodi čitatelja od Londona do Perua, od Philadelphije do Tahitija i Amsterdama. Putem upoznajemo nevjerojatne likove: misionare, abolicioniste, avanturiste, astronome, moreplovce, urođenike... Ali najupečatljivija od svih sama je Alma – rođena u doba prosvjetiteljstva, živjela je u vrijeme industrijske revolucije i svjedočila onom nevjerojatnom trenutku ljudske povijesti kada stare pretpostavke o znanosti, religiji, društvu i klasi padaju, a njihovo mjesto preuzimaju nove, moderne ideje.


Po objavljivanju, roman su najboljim literarnim djelom godine proglasili ugledni svjetski časopisi (New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune i New Yorker), opisujući ga kao raskošan roman koji se nastavlja na tradiciju velikih autora 19. st., među kojima su Jane Austen i George Eliot.


Ova proza ima elegantnu patinu 19. stoljeća, ali u

njezinu središtu moderne su teme, kao što su žensko

pitanje i ispunjenje žene u poslu i životu.
