In this spare novel Ismail Kadare creates a metaphor for the police state A young distaff scion of a family powerful enough to rival the leaders of Ottoman Empire is given a job in the Palace of Dreams Here a huge machinery gathers the dreams from around the Empire It copies sorts interprets sifts and archives themJust as a thought police thrives on rumor and innuendo so does the Palace The power struggles of the mighty are not discussed or understood even among the intimates of the participants but are palpable throughout the empire and very keenly felt at the Palace of Dreams Kadare demonstrates how the fear of the unknown paralyzes bystanders and how participants keep everyone in the darkWhile this book is over 15 years old I had not heard of it or its author I found it through an reviewer whose interests run parallel to mine This book and perhaps the author I ll have to read Kadare should be on academic reading lists along with the works of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley

I wonder why so few people have read this novel because it s uite amazing I can t say that it s completely original because it reminded me of Kafka The Castle and Saramago All the Names but imagining an institution where people s dreams are analyzed That is a brilliant idea masterfully developed by Ismail Kadar Mark Alem comes from a powerful Albanian family the uiprili K pr l and his relatives decide that he should apply for a job at one of the most influential institutions of the Ottoman Empire Tabir Saray the Palace of Dreams Thus he begins his ascent to the top although fearful and confused never fully aware of what he is supposed to do In this huge machinery of control the dreams from all over the empire are gathered sorted and analysed in order to choose one Master Dream that is presented each Friday to the Sultan Dreams are believed to foretell important political events thus being of utmost importance to the EmpireWe follow Mark Alem s journey through the mysterious Palace of Dreams with its nightmarish passages where he usually gets lost with the thousands of dreams stacked away in its huge underground archive with the kafkian beaurocracy and the strange happenings that make people paranoid Without realising Mark Alem becomes an active part in the events that will unfold in the story bringing misfortune to his familyAbsorbed in the world of dreams Mark Alem comes to believe that this is the real world powerful and vivid while the reality outside gradually becomes gray dull and less and less attractive He gets and isolated his relatives remaining his only connection to the earthly world He seems oblivious to any romantic relationship and the only mention of a possible wife comes from his uncles but we don t ever get to know the girl The lack of a sexual dimension makes the character a bit too flat but contributes to his total immersion in the fantastic world of dreams a sort of hell that Ismail Kadar wanted to create in his novel

The Palace of Dream by Ismail KadareIf Kafka s The Castle and Orwell s 1984 got freaky with it and had a baby the result would be Kadare s The Palace of Dreams Karade is an Albanian and I would argue that the Palace of Dreams belongs to the long and productive tradition of subversive communist literature that cleverly disguises its critiue in a novel about the fantastic Karade s subversion isn t so disguised it kind of hits in the face but he s Albanian and not a Russian and he lives in France but the novel is of this type The Palace of Dreams is a monolithic government agency that feels like it comes out of Orwell or the movie Brazil The agency s mission is to gather and interpret the dreams of all the citizens The protagonist Mark Alem gets assigned to a mid level position in Selection The job of Selection is to to choose the dreams that are worthy of Interpretation from those that are garbage Mark Alem starts at a mid level position because his family is second in the land only to the Sultan the book is set in the Ottoman Empire but this time period is of little conseuence The Palace itself feels like Kafka s The Castle It is a labyrinth in which Mark Alem is constantly lost and he winds up turning corners to find himself face to face with busy bureaucrats and big desks As he spends his time in Selection of the Palace is revealed It is by design mysterious Everyone works at their position but few know to what end It is revealed to him that there is a Master Dream that is of interest to the Sultan The Master Dream has something to do with major political events such as assassinations and wars and has existed and interpreted for hundreds of years After of the Palace is revealed Mark Alem goes to work one day and finds himself promoted into the division of Interpretation In Interpretation he reads several dreams and in particular one he choose earlier from Selection to be interpreted Little of the dream is discussed but it has to do with a bridge a raging bull and a fire In a nut shell the story follows the life of Mark Alem as a bureaucrat in the Palace He works he has coffee breaks he files papers and he discusses his work with his family despite the fact that he is supposed to be secretive Underlying the Palace and the prose is a tension Everyone works but because they do not know to what end and because they are forced to be secretive everyone is paranoid and second guesses their selections and interpretations Then one day it all changes His family is raided by the secret Police Their servants are killed and his Uncle is arrested Mark Alem feels his family may know why but he is left in the dark He goes to work the next day and the Palace is a buzz in whispered gossip The bureaucrats all talk of what happened to Mark Alem s family The next day there is retaliation Mark Alem s family second in the nation has retaliated in assignations and political moves Mark Alem finds him again promoted but his time into a directors position As a director he has the access to research what has happened He discovers that the dream he Selected and Interpreted was a part of the Master Dream and predicted a power struggle between his family and the Sultan His family would gain power at the cost of his Uncle s life Mark Alem wonders if he were planted by his family to Select and Interpret the Master Dream He wonders if it was a coincidence that he is now a man in power or that if he were set up to be handed the Master Dream and raised to Interpret it as such He wonders and he waits for he knows one day the secret police will come and take him Until that time he continues to workIsmail Karade said that he wanted to create vision of hell I would say that he succeeded Mark Alem s life is directionless mundane and worst all he waits in ignorance of a when horrible future will catch up to him I think that having the knowledge that the future will be bad but not knowing when or how is one of the worst feelings of all time It creates anticipation and expectation and these feelings are often powerful than the reality itself At the same time Mark Alem s life is mundane and pointless He is not waiting for death by living an exciting fun life he is waiting for death by barely getting by in isolation and paranoia It is a hell a very modern and distinct vision The only critiue I could offer is that this reality of hell is present but that the emotion behind those feelings isn t well captured The book is not character driven but setting driven But I don t consider this a bad thing but a good choice The setting The Palace of Dreams is ultra cool The prose is uick and fun Together those elements make this a fun book to read The result is that Karade captures a modern hell in a fun way and that makes this a really great book
