    The first half of this book is very good with Jonas' experiences of not fitting in to normal school being an interesting story You also get some shorter parts with other characters than Jonas These are still intersting feel relevant to the story and are so short that you don't feel you are taken away from Jonas

    It's a classic a must read and the criticism is still valid The book follows the two and a half first years of Jonas primary education and we are introduced to a great variety of male individuals who each are presented with a full background story and complexity of character We meet his friends parents uncle the staff at

Wherever it has appeared The fate of the little boy Jonas crushed by the enforced conformity of his education is not the author says the central theme of the novel All the important persons in this novel are different variations of Jonas all of them are Jonases The theme of the book is not the boy Jonas but the 'being a Jona. The first half of this book is very good with Jonas experiences of not fitting in to normal school being an interesting story You also get some shorter parts with other characters than Jonas These are still intersting feel relevant to the story and are so short that you don t feel you are taken away from Jonas for too long at a time The characters are well written and funny Bj rneboe has managed to make them believable but still borderlining comedic For some reason you get a description of pretty much every character s nose I ve read a lot of books through the years but no author have focused so much on nosesThe only part I did not like in the first half of the book was the description of how Jonas perceived the world I ve read many books particularly comming of age books and books about adults which have a short chapter or two of the adult s childhood which describe the child s perception of the world in a similar way Childhood does in many ways perceive the world in a dreamy way than adulthood But these books child characters perceive the world in such a dreamy way that I beleive they must all be high to see the world like that I couldn t help but think that if this was really how Jonas perceived the world maybe he did belong in the special school It seems to me few authors are really able to write a believable child characterThe second half of the book was in my opinion a bit messy We move away from Jonas and have to read through some uite long parts about other characters where a lot of it really is not relevant for the story It s a good book for sympathizing with those who do not always fit in but I felt it could need some editing towards the end Refined Tastes good with Jonas experiences of not fitting in to normal school being an interesting story You also Transforming Students get some shorter parts with other characters than Jonas These are still intersting feel relevant to the story and are so short that you don t feel you are taken away from Jonas for too long at a time The characters are well written and funny Bj rneboe has managed to make them believable but still borderlining comedic For some reason you Sociology of Higher Education get a description of pretty much every character s nose I ve read a lot of books through the years but no author have focused so much on nosesThe only part I did not like in the first half of the book was the description of how Jonas perceived the world I ve read many books particularly comming of age books and books about adults which have a short chapter or two of the adult s childhood which describe the child s perception of the world in a similar way Childhood does in many ways perceive the world in a dreamy way than adulthood But these books child characters perceive the world in such a dreamy way that I beleive they must all be high to see the world like that I couldn t help but think that if this was really how Jonas perceived the world maybe he did belong in the special school It seems to me few authors are really able to write a believable child characterThe second half of the book was in my opinion a bit messy We move away from Jonas and have to read through some uite long parts about other characters where a lot of it really is not relevant for the story It s a Georg Buchner good book for sympathizing with those who do not always fit in but I felt it could need some editing towards the end

SUMMARY Jonas By Jens Bjørneboe

Jonas By Jens Bjørneboe

Jens Bjørneboe was born in Kristiansaand Norway in 1920 says he was a bad pupil and ran away to sea With this unpromising start Mr Bjørneboe was able by his second novel a study of collaboration in wartime Norway to make himself even less popular in his home country With the publication of The Least of These called by Sigur. All in all you re just another brick in the WallJonas saw the light of day in 1955 and is apparently Jens Bj rneboe s declaration of war on the Norwegian school system in book form The novel hit like a bomb At least as far as the elites of the Norwegian education system are concerned A long lasting dispute developed in the respective gazettes in which the author wisely didn t participate One positive response he got was in a telephone call when an unfamiliar child s voice askedIs this Bj rneboeYesJens Bj rneboeYes that s meThis is Jonas Take careWhat better reaction can an author get from a young readerSo first of all this is the story of seven year old Jonas He is intelligent and imaginative but unfortunately also word blind His dyslexia depresses him especially because he doesn t know about this disorder and nobody cares to check for it In second class the authority figures of his school decide to send Jonas to a special school for mentally disabled children referred to by the other pupils as the Idiots School For Jonas this is an unthinkable place a frightening place and source of his nightmares So he bolts and finds a place as a stowaway on a ship An apprentice on the ship a former teacher takes care of him and accompanies him back home From this point on the novel takes some unexpected turns The story of Jonas takes a backseat for a while but returns later on Instead we learn of the apprentice and his life as well as of a teacher at another school a German Jew named Marx Further about a uarrel between a literary critic Werner and the headmaster of Jonas s school a man named Stange This all sounds a little confusing but I can t say it any better without using spoilers I think what s important for Jens Bj rneboe here is the confrontation with all kinds of authorities The author blames them for abuse of power for oppression and the co optation of people in general The school system is just an example albeit a particularly serious one Bj rneboe once wrote and this is not from the bookIn a modern state with all the will to power that radiates from it the school system which is part of the spiritual life is very easily transformed into a means of power in the political struggleThe school system becomes the expression of the cultural policy and the human image of the ruling circles It s not the human the student who is the measure of the classroom but the endeavor to educate the students to learn the ideology of the statetranslation by meFrom 1950 to 1957 during the time the book was written Bj rneboe was a teacher at the Rudolf Steiner school in Oslo and it shows in the book although anthroposophy is never explicitly mentionedFor me it was once again an outstanding novel by my favorite writer from Norway In describing the situation of Jonas but also of the other children you realize how much Jens Bj rneboe loved children I think such an empathy can rarely be found On the other hand the author presents the villains first and foremost headmaster Stange as very flat characters almost like decals But for Bj rneboe those people which he referred to as salamanders are exactly that They don t have any depth their heads are empty and hollow Maybe that s also the reason why they always seem to flow to the surface After reading Bj rneboe s biography by Fredrik Wandrup I have to recognize that a lot of autobiographical material was processed for this book I would even go so far as to say that the author has his person and his life s story spread across a whole range of characters The apprentice the critic Werner the teacher Marx and a couple of pupils but not Jonas all exhibit some startling parallels to Bj rneboe s lifeThe prose is straightforward easy appealing and never withdrawn I like that He is provocative that s true and some critics considered the book polemical I just call it honest The title of the English addition is not Jonas but oddly enough The Least of These A Novel of Norway and Our Time The German version that I read was published by Freies Geistesleben Free Spiritual Life a publisher that mostly sells anthroposophic literature This work is licensed under a Creative
