The Ice Palace (Sun Moon Classics) ebook

by Tarjei Vesaas

The Ice Palace book .

And like sun releases chained with ice land so time will melt frozen crumb in the girl's heart. And visit at Ice Palace at the end of the winter will be like catharsis. In a similar way, Tarjei Vesaas is now a symbol of the Nordic spirit for me. Comparisons between him and the taciturn and sombre Ingmar Bergman don't seem forced at all after being exposed to the silences and mysteries of the palace of ice.

And there’s an ice palace they’re building now that’s the first they’ve had since eighty-five. On a tall hill outlined in vivid glaring green against the wintry sky stood the ice palace. Built out of blocks of the clearest ice they could find-on a tremendous scale. She rose and walking to the window pushed aside the heavy Turkish portires and looked out. Oh! she cried suddenly. It was three stories in the air, with battlements and embrasures and narrow icicled windows, and the innumerable electric lights inside made a gorgeous transparency of the great central hall. Sally Carrol clutched Harry’s hand under the fur robe.

Two eleven-year-old girls, Siss and Unn, are separated at the very beginning of their friendship by the death of the latter in a strange labrynthine palace of ice in Scandinavia, leaving Siss to come to terms with her loss.
"After a while Siss began to feel Unn's eyes on her in class.... Siss felt it as a peculiar tingling in her body. She liked it so much she scarcely bothered to hide it. She pretended not to notice, but felt herself to be enmeshed in something strange and pleasant."

from "The Ice Palace" by Tarjai Vesaas

The story is simple: Siss is a popular 11-year-old girl. A new girl, Unn, sits by herself at the edge of the playground every day. Despite their differences, they are drawn to each other. Their first meeting is also their last. Afterward, Siss struggles to keep an impossible promise. She turns a corner in her life to find the connection between what she believes and what she feels.

The book is written with simple prose akin to poetry to describe the sensual awakening of a young girl. The presence of the ice palace kept me glued to the page. This beautiful and terrifying natural sculpture was yet another character in the book.
This short novel contains some of the greatest prose-poetry I havre read. The images are real and surreal at once and the words flow so naturally that I hated to read it in two sittings rather than one.
The subjects are death ,depression, and most prominently love of several human varieties along with recovery and redemption. I think this book could and should be the basis of an opera.
This is an unusual novel and not for everyone. It depicts the beginning of a friendship between two eleven year old girls in a small Norwegian village one winter, the beginning because the girls are alone together only once and that brief encounter is followed by the death of one of the girls. The male author, well-known in Norway and nominated for a Nobel prize, explores the strangely complex and intimate relationship between Siss and Unn, and the aftermath of the tragedy at the heart of the novel. It is a brief novel that raises interesting questions about these girls, about friendship, intimacy and grief. It is one that lingers in the mind of the reader.
I read the Ice Palace in two days. At sometimes I was perplexed as the prose seemed very much slanted towards young readers but the amount of atmosphere and the keen insight into how a young person thinks is mesmerizing. So much was said indirectly. I very much appreciate the skill of a writer who can deliver so much emotion and content with spare and deft choice of words.
This is a haunting book. The contrast between the charged emotional link between the two eleven-year-old girls and the frozen environment is powerful. The focus on the girls, to the near exclusion of the adults, does not seem childish, but intimate. The tug between what happens and what might happen at several points in the book, raises the tension, but is not forced. I will look for other books by Vesaas.
If I actually wrote out all of the highlights I have made in the book, I'd be listing almost the entire book herein. While I at first thought that it was going to be a quick read, after I got into it and realized that every statement really potentially meant something, or something different than I was thinking it meant, I had to slow down to take it all in, lingering over the prose and re-reading particular phrases. So may metaphors and things left unsaid, left to the reader's imagination. Beautiful, eerie, sad, and hopeful are all descriptions that come to mind.

A Classic. I am sure you will be moved by this novel.
Very interesting writing style of a short encounter between two classmates and what happens when one shows up missing the Next day. This is not a suspenseful book or crime novel. Nothing nefarious happens. Just how one young girl deals with a loss. It isn't emotional though, either. That's why the style is so interesting.
