April 2 2016 12:57 am Julian Barnes and his new book Top News Book: The Noise of Time Author: Julian Barnes Publisher: Random House Pages: 192 Price: Rs 699 Nearly 30 years ago in an interview Julian Barnes recalled the American poet John Berryman saying that “one thing that really upset him was that a man could go through life nowadays without finding out whether or not he was courageous” What does it mean to say that a man or woman lived courageously In Staring at the Sun (1986) Barnes surely as great an English novelist as any alive writes: “There was no courage without fear and without admitting fear Men’s courage was different from women’s courage Men’s courage lay in going out and nearly getting killed Women’s courage — or so everyone said — lay in endurance” Towards the end of The Noise of Time Barnes’s latest novel he writes: “Being a hero was much easier than being a coward To be a hero you only had to be brave for a moment — when you took out the gun threw the bomb pressed the detonator did away with the tyrant and with yourself as well… Being a coward required pertinacity persistence a refusal to change — which made it in a way a kind of courage” In other words to live courageously is sometimes to stick with it to stay the course to as Barnes suggested in Staring at the Sun endure These reflections on heroism and cowardice though Barnes may agree with them entirely are those of the great Russian (and pertinently Soviet) composer Dimitri Shostakovich The Noise of Time is structured as an agonised meditation Shostakovich’s bruising self-audit recounted in a claustrophobic third person of his relationship to what is characterised in the novel as the “Power” the compromises he made to live and compose in the Soviet Union of Stalin and at the end Khrushchev Shostakovich’s life has long been the subject of impassioned debate the so-called ‘Shostakovich Wars’ “nonsensically polarized arguments” as Alex Ross put it in the New Yorker “over whether Shostakovich was a Party ideologue or an anti-Communist dissident” Barnes in this fictionalised biography leaves the reader in no doubt about Shostakovich’s unease distaste for and sheer terror of the Power The novel’s frightening and blackly comic opening places Shostakovich outside the lift in his apartment building his mind “skittering… Faces names memories… Faces names… The faces and names of the dead too” It is in the middle of Stalin’s Great Purge the state-sponsored execution of hundreds of thousands perhaps even over a million people — officials Party members writers musicians artists ordinary people — suspected of nefarious plots or of supporting nefarious plotters or secretly nurturing thoughts of nefarious plots or perhaps living in the vicinity of those secretly nurturing thoughts of nefarious plots And Shostakovich waits nervously by the lift to greet the men he anticipates will come to spirit him away in the middle of the night Shostakovich close to the now out-of-favour Marshal Tukhachevsky finds himself summoned to The Big House the headquarters of the NKVD the Soviet secret police to be interrogated about the closeness of his links to those who would plot against Stalin “It had all begun very precisely” he tells himself “on the morning of the 28th of January 1936 at Arkhangelsk railway station” On that day he reads an editorial in Pravda headlined ‘Muddle Instead of Music’ that condemns his hitherto successful opera Lady Macbeth of Mstensk as “non-political and confusing” Unsigned (though a rumour persists that Stalin himself wrote the piece for who else would be allowed to get away with so many grammatical errors) the editorial concludes with a threat “it is a game of clever ingenuity that may end very badly” Afraid for his life Shostakovich withholds his Fourth Symphony and when he allows his Fifth Symphony to premiere in November 1937 he subtitles it ‘A Soviet Artist’s Response to Just Criticism’ The performance is greeted with tears critical hosannas and an hour-long standing ovation Just like that Shostakovich is restored to his status as the most beloved most famous Soviet composer Was the subtitle craven or ironic Does it matter Each of this slim novel’s three sections begins with variations of the sentence “All he knew was that this was the worst time” Each section is about a specific humiliation suffered by Shostakovich — the Pravda editorial; having to denounce his musical idol Stravinsky in a speech written for him at an event in New York and being exposed as a Stalinist stooge by a CIA-sponsored Russian emigre; finally joining the Communist Party as an old man in a Soviet Union now ruled by Khrushchev On each occasion Shostakovich as imagined by Barnes appears to hope that his passivity his ironic resignation will be recognised as such by the world and by Soviet dissidents Instead he understands increasingly embittered he will probably be seen as a coward And while Shostakovich might accept such a judgment from Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn or Andrei Sakharov what sticks in his craw are what he sees as the true enablers of Soviet tyranny the likes of Picasso Sartre and George Bernard Shaw Shostakovich knows there is a difference between artistic integrity and personal moral integrity He sees this as a major failing of say Stravinsky Shostakovich’s only defence against accusations of a similar lack of personal integrity is that he lived in the Soviet Union he endured and he did what he had to do to survive It’s an unarguably strong defence All that said The Noise of Time is an odd exercise A rehash of dated arguments mired in the Cold War when despite the renewal of hostilities between Russia and the West the Cold War is irrelevant The writer is a Delhi-based critic For all
