Walking without Running, Liesl Schillinger’s Books

La crítica y traductora Liesl Schillinger reflexionaba a finales de abril en el T Magazine sobre el caminar con el artículo ‘Walk, Don’t Run‘. En su columna se preguntaba “Quién tiene tiempo para caminar con nuestras agendas sobrecargadas?” y parece que no es la única que echa de menos tomar un paseo o viajar a pie para descubrir el mundo.

Polar Dream‘ de Helen Thayer quien, con 50 años, recorrió en 1988  el desierto de Mongolia, el Sahara y el Valle de los Muertos en California. Thayner explicaba que “Me he propuesto un reto a mí misma llevándome al límite y relacionarlas con pequeñas culturas desconocidas”.

Journey Without Maps‘ de Graham Greene. Un libro escrito en 1936 donde relataba su travesía a lo largo de un mes por la República de Liberia (África). El libro sirvió de inspiración a Liesl Schillinger y tras finalizar su lectura decidió coger un vuelo hasta Ghana para recorrer sus paisajes desérticos y llenos de color.

Walking‘ de Henry David Thoreau, considerado uno de los padres de la literatura natural americana, en el que criticaba la vida contemporánea y nuestros hábitos de conducta inmóviles.

The Places in Between‘ de Rory Stewart, quien recorrió 600 millas en Afganistán a pie, conociendo de cerca los hábitos musulmanes y el dialecto persa. En su travesía, Stewart se encontró con más de dos metros de nieve y aldeas destrozadas e incendiadas con las que enfrentarse.

A Time of Gifts‘ de Patrick Leigh Fermor es la última recomendación que nos hace Liesl Schillinger. El autor escribió a sus 62 años una novela donde mostraba sus viajes a través del río Danubio. El recorrido se amplió y siguió escribiendo escribiendo su paso a través de los alrededores del río en los libros ‘Between the Woods and the Water‘ y ‘The Broken Road

Last April, the translator and critic Liesl Schillinger contemplated walking in T Magazine in the article “Walk, Don’t Run”. In her column she asked, “Who has time to walk in this overscheduled age? I’ve always seem to be running” and it seems that she is not the only one that misses taking a stroll or travelling by foot to discover the world.

Polar Dream” by Helen Thayer, who with 50 years old, travelled in 1988 through the desert of Mongolia, Sahara and the Death Valley in California. Thayner said “I yearned to test myself, to push myself to the limit, and to associate with little-known cultures.”

Journey Without Maps” by Graham Greene. A book written in 1936 in which he explains his crossing over a one-month period in the Republic of Liberia (Africa). The book served as an inspiration to Liesl Schillinger and after reading it, she decided to take a flight to Ghana to travel her desert scenery and full of color.

Walking” by Henry David Thoreau, considered as one of the American natural literature fathers in which he criticizes about the contemporary life and our immovable behaviors.

The Places in Between” by Rory Stewart. He travelled 600 miles through Afghanistan by foot discovering the Muslim habits and the Persian dialect. On his way, Stewart saw more than two meters of snow and destroyed and burned villages.

A Time of Gifts” by Patrick Leigh Fermor is the last recommendation of Liesl Schillinger. The author wrote when he was 62 years old a novel in which he shows his journeys through the Danube River. The route was expanded and he continued writing his pace through the surroundings of the river in the books “Between Woods and the Water” and “The Broken Road”.
