An exile or refugee writer settled in Switzerland in exile to the west as a result of the Hungarian upheaval in 1956. Agosta who passed through the loss of words and the flow of words.Three part trilogy filled with Christophe's half-

"Bad Diaries", "Evidence of Two", "Third Lie".

The stage of the story is the Nazi at World War II, a small village bordered by the border of the Hungarian West under German rule.

In the end of the intensifying war, a twin brother evacuates from "big town" to "small town".

The evacuation destination is a grandmother's farm, which is called a "witch" from villagers and hated,

Therefore, they intensely acquire the technique of surviving in the madness of human beings under wartime.


Excluding proper nouns, even without the names of the heroes at all, spelled with the notation of first person plural form (〓〓〓〓〓〓〓〓, thoroughly eliminating the main character of people and people's subjective feelings, emotional fluctuations,

In the "big note" that stubbornly penetrated only the facts depiction, we write down the distorted and cracked world.

"Bokura" is a world of war in which people killing each other is natural, understanding that adapting to the war logic is the way to survive this world.

So "we" hurt, impose pain, kill. It is a training that survives the world of this pain. "We" see through the world. There is pain only in the world.

So I learn that the technique to adapt to the world, living the world, is "adapt to pain, adapt to pain". So we soak ourselves in pain and throw away all but pain.

I will discard any kind words that may have been heard someday, the eyes full of love, the hands touched, those we do. forget. And we do not cry. I forgot the pain, I threw it away.

It became "strong" as requested by this world. And they shoulder the pain of this world.

It seems like it continued to bear the pain as a sin, as a crime of people's sins, in this world, not escaping to the pardon of the transcendental existence.

Suddenly, there is the word "If you hurt someone, you will be injured by another form of wound, you will not be able to endure that pain."

I think it is cruel recognition and words.

It is contrary to the "depiction of only objective facts" imposed by "Bokura" in an infant diary, but I think that it was almost a physical ethical fact for us drowning people's pain in the world.

Even on that recognition and words, those painfuls. On top of that, I will carry even the pain of "I will not bear it".

No matter how many people are killed or hurt, they can not forgive and forgive them without forsaking, unnoticed sins and wounds and pain of people in the world who do not know about such scars or pain at all.

I think that it is more than God's awareness of cruel sin and more benevolence than God's forgiveness.

I will impose on my own blood the world that this world keeps running, not even escape to forgiveness.


There is no justice for them in "Bad Diary". But there is more than justice. It would be literature to draw it.

"Bokura" has such a strong and powerful existence as that, but as if there is nothing.

Twin like mirrors, two who became mirrors in the world, There are mirrors and others here and there existed entities existed neither.

Both of them are mirror images of this ugly cruel world - virtual images. Both of us did not exist "we". It may be sorrow that it is flowing in this work.

The act of trying to survive the war world voluntarily and intensely, trying to "strongly" to survive this world,

I am sad that the spirit is cut down by the huge world of war and created while being destroyed in the world.

If it is "strong", the orientation towards labor obligation is the logic of Nazism that dominated the world of "ours"

However, "We" has not been overwhelmed by the logic of the Nazis, but despite being opposed to it, rather than just judging the technique of living in this world,

As a result, he made himself a soldier with the same logic as Nazism.

We just look at the people who live in the world just as they are, and we can see what kind of logic the world is operating.

We will voluntarily impose the logic on our own. We become small soldiers.

For the first time in such a "we" soldier, a genuine soldier's officer is impressed and praises.

In addition, they are beautiful children with blond hair blue eyes, with the characteristics of Aryan race who set the eugenic value as the leader of Nazi discrimination, they self-embodied self-motivated superman thought naturally,

It is also a spontaneous appearance of Nazi's values.

Innocent brutality unique to children, Aryan racial appearance, embodying superman thought, intention to strength and obligation,

"Bokura" is a naturally-occurring, personal mini-Nazi that pours away the discrepancy of "Experiment" in denial of the Bible, any pain in front of me.

And it has become a caricature presence of the Nazis.

It is not the Nazism of the power to oppress the weak, but the power as a violent acquisition of the survival right to live in a painful world.

How emotions of the sense of value of the naught of a naked spirit naturally born, deprived, deprived, abandoned power, grotesque, cheerful,

As if to prove it to the fact that it is.

They are creepy, excluded and oppressed by people by the overlapping nature of Nazism.

And, while "Tomokori" acquainted with familiarity with unfamiliaring pain beyond the pain subjectively and raised even the pain of discrepancy in self-deception,

People around the world of "Bokura" who is accustomed to suffering from painfully suffering from painfully suffering great pain in the world and rejecting "Bokura" as a monster, monsterly as it is unconscious ,

"Bokura" is a person who in the world surrounding "Bokuraka" is eaten as it is ejected and only eats himself awareness of the monster character himself has become it,

The people who condemn the 'weak' are also revealed by their existence, the mechanism of the world that they produce their monsters, which are their own imagery.

The logic that "Bokura" learned from the pain of the world learned fundamentally, although it is Nazism who was a big perpetrator in the world at that time,

"Bokura", however, fights against the swell of the big world that crushes people by the power gained as an antibody to pain, moves with our own logical discipline,

To confront this world, become only two military and soldier to fight the world.

The existence of persons with disabilities over such "ours", "we" assisted disabled people who Nazism abuses and eliminated thoroughly by eugenics theory,

It is interesting that the relationship with disabled people who visited since then ruined at one end due to the twin Aryan racial appearance and the intention of "we" himself as a disabled person.


The logic that they imposed on them is the logic of the battlefield, "we" internalized the logic more than anyone, existence, Child. Soldier.

Generally defined 'war', for sure now, may not have happened.

However, if there are people who "battlefield logic" goes all the way, and there are people who are internalizing them and acting, then whatever it looks, that is definitely a "war".

The war in the background that made "we" a child. The soldier is only one of the background for Agota (even for "we"),

Those who made "ours" a soldier have removed taggers from the war itself, which is generally defined, by one trigger of war,

I think that it is a lot of "pain" produced by ordinary people living in "ordinary people" around "Bokura".

The pain that removes the "taggage" inside the person, the people who do not notice it although the taggage is dismissed, or are just sent to it without resistance, and living it as an ordinary in a chain with abnormal pain ,

If there is such an environment, it is exactly a battlefield condition, and among them will be children who will voluntarily learn this world's ethics and become a soldier like a "we".

In that sense, even if it is out of the meaning of war that is defined in a large sense, the war in the battlefield where people are made a soldier exists in any place if there is a person there.

Whether at home, at school or in the area.

"Bad diary" is excellent when there is an environment that allows you to saturate the pain, process, people's pain and remove "taggage" from the background war itself,

I think that it depicts a quiet and reasonable madness, a tragedy that people bring.

People can "go crazy rationally", when I forgive it most, it is a big backdrop, when I have set up a big framework such as war, I think.

It can reasonably be said that it is "adapting to the environment only".

People who do "madness to adapt to the environment" can discard the logic of warfare at the time of peace, and adapt to the logic of peace.

No matter how torturing, abusing or slaughtering during wartime, it seems to be why some people adapt to "peace" easily after the war is over.

Even if it was time of peace, we could not do it because we kept squeezing the gear inside myself quietly because it was a soldier who survived the battle of the battlefield itself.

Not only did they adapt quietly and reasonably to adapt to the environment, but the war that is happening there,

Pain that removes a person 's tagger - Because it is a survivor who burns himself in that pain, never diverting his eyes, never diverting his eyes from either pain and additive and those to suffer.

I think that it was inevitable as the end of this big painful story that the last pain that they did not survive.

Pain, absolute relativity, things that harm and damage, lightly and darkly backed-up duality "pain" itself, which never can be broken, carry from the both sides.


People are shed while being swallowed in a big environment, what great worlds have done wrong, what is right justice, things to oppress and defend,

While being swallowed by the logic of such a big world, I myself swallow it unconsciously and respond, but "Bokura" first disappears subjectively before that pain.

"Bokura" can not adapt to this world, unfamiliar, this world is funny First things you judged first,

Moreover, judging that it must do to live on it, will autonomously progress to that pain autonomously.

I will not put anything in authority, to self-responsibility to pierce itself in the world's pain.

The pain that happens in the war world, the killing, the pain killed by people, the pain killing people, neither pain, will carry on their own responsibility.

Moreover, do not look away from it.

Take a look at the world with a viewpoint of God who created the pain of this world and take responsibility.

A simple sentence with a simple, innocent impact that you say "You must not kill, but everyone is killing" seems like a novel of a different form of the Bible.

And our actions and thoughts that respond to the words themselves are also.

Although the acts imposed on himself "Although it is necessary to describe things absolutely objectively", it is autonomous, self-responsible, subjectively narrowing the visual field,

The reader is obstructed by a frame that captures only objective and immovable facts of "we" and can not escape to interpretation or fluctuation of emotions,

Embracing the sense of pressure that was fixed in front of the eyes of the world, the gaze also pierces itself and peels off from himself.

I think that it is a child of martyred who is nothing more than anyone, no lie, no falsehood, no falsehood, a wound and a pain of that era, with its ugly and sorrowfully stamped on his soul and carried on his back .

I forgot the pain, forgot about crying, forgotten about humanity, forgotten human nature, forgotten about humanity, we have repeatedly said, "We will not forget", once more, than usual, also in that case.

A survivor surviving the battlefield, Soldier can not discard the pain he survived and shift from war to peace easily as hermit crab replaces the house.

It continues to be burned to the sight of the battlefield burned in his own brain and pain in real time and continues to appeal that pain from "inside", "do not forget" forever "can not be forgotten".

The one we lost all, the one we did not lose, the one we did not lose, the one we acquired only the pain of absolute loss,

Do not forget it, it is an impeachment that it is not forgotten, can not be forgotten, words spelled like carving into the world.


In "tragic diary" trilogy, condensation of self-limiting thoughts to the past can be seen. It is an accumulation of "a story that is not a fact but could be a fact."

Overlap between facts and non-facts.

Agotta. Entire Christophe's work has not reached the mirage like a lost reality, a lost past, a possibility of losing,

It is filled with painful sadness towards "someday" that was ever lost.

It is exactly the soldier's traumatic heart that can never be returned from the inner battlefield of the battlefield return soldier, which brings about shocks and symptoms that pounds out the soul from the human body.

Possibility of being lost with memory and the past, mourned, captured by the reality that did not exist beforehand, the psychology of the unrepaired who can not return to the present from the past.

Loss of "Bokura" who was one mind-boggling so much that the loss of her home country and her mother tongue, loss of family, even even the name of individualization is unnecessary, half body, loss of half of one's soul.

It is not that Agoga's work is politically gaining a lot of empathy not only with the exquisite works and refugee works,

The depiction of this traumatic loss is linked to the sense of people surrounded by "transparent pain named peace" of the modern day without war,

It is because it gives a name to the transparent pain in peace.

This world with the name "Peace" is also just a case in which the framework of the big world selects the pain that should be felt and the pain to be thrown away,

I think that people are unconsciously drunk and swallowed so that "peace" as a promise has been made, fundamentally the same as the world in which we are working "Bokura".

It is what we call agotta's work in general, a feeling of embarrassment due to a traumatic injury, a lethargic symptom, a divorce,

It is like creating such a psychiatric term as a universal empathetic rich work of man.

That's why Agotta's pain in front of the pain, white pain including soreness,

The soul breaks apart and falls into a hollowed-out empty space, which itself seems to resonate with empty space inside of itself as words like blanks.

Pain that depicts the blank as a blank rather than reclaiming the blank, what was lost, what was deprived, what did not exist in advance,

Literature is certainly such thing, it universally agrees with people.

As a feature of the description of "Bokura", the subjectiveism, departure, divergence is closer than anyone, it is the separation from ourselves, which is the farthest from anyone's separation.

I am a subjective, discrete, divergent subject to pain, giving them the rationality of "experimentation", I know the twin spiritual journey that goes self-destructively further cold, as I pick up,

On the contrary it was a shock like I was looking into my soul, a white cold air spread from the core of my body and I felt a tremor.

Because of the statement "only describe objective facts", thereby, even if it is violently struck by the impulsive properties that impact the world and the reality before the eyes,

The picture of "we" isolated from the world without any help, my pain, my "we" separated from my heart also appears painfully.

There is no reality in doing human experiments to massacre in the gas room, accompanied by Jews who diverge to the pain in front of you,

Like a Nazi whose big gear was moving with a playful bar charity named "experiment".

However, different from the virtualization created by Nazi, "Bokura" is not limited to the purpose of surviving individually,

Rather than placing any authority on forgetting pain to truncate it, rather the strength acquired by it becomes a resistance to the world pressing pain,

Losing pain's reality Continue to have pain, describe it and testify it. Like an unprecedented annoying confession.

Characteristic of the description of Agota is a close comparison of the richness of the vivid reality of the world that is described objectively and the dilution of individual reality opposed to that world,

I think that it is grotesque lively comedian, but objectively it is surrounded by terrible pain, it is painless sense of feeling by it,

From the mental state of divergence and loss of reality in the divorce, I would like to say that the fictionality altered by Agora is reality.


Even if it is said that the "bad diary" is a series of lie like a play in the play, the act of writing creative writing itself is the empty fictional construction,

It was only to accumulate falsehoods and lies, that is why the things that underlie the words,

Pure white loneliness and feeling of loss like a blank note on words puts words closer to the reader as truth.

Though it is a recognition of "lie", the truth as bodily sensation comes close.

By notifying these works that the words are lies, they must be falsehoods, that they had only to lie,

The pain of truth that pain is too much and it is not suitable to put words on it is raised behind the words.

"Bullock diary" in which the life of "Bokura" runs, the painfully struggling "two pieces of evidence" trying to prove the existence of two who have been cut out of existence in the world,

And the last book of trilogy, "The Third Lie" title excellence.

Creation is of "lie".

Even if I write the facts of reality, it becomes a secondary meaning at the moment through the filter of expression of the writer and can not become the fact itself,

However, we can try to approach the proximity of "being a fact", it can only do it.

Fundamentally, the human brain itself is a real filter, and by discarding and complementation, everyone lives the reality as fiction that each unique brain compiled fictionally.

Even though people spend a lot of words, even the world in which they live can not overlap with the real monsters, although they can not touch the reality themselves,

Among them, if the limited reality is also lost, it becomes a sense of living in lies, lie, fictitious, play in the play.

Part of the work of Agota is very fresh, but the fact that there is a mode of dramatic drama with strong caricature is that it is rather meta-like and more realistic from a person with a sense of depression who is living in the play in the play It is.

To the creative thing itself, it is listed as titled "It is a lie".

As a result, all the proper nouns drawn in these works, intricate narratives, and those who were still supposed to have their own unique identity and era,

We blew away the basis at once and bleached, "Bokura" crosses borders between good and evil, beauty ulterior, life and death, absence, real and fictional, alone,

At the same time as it unfolds the uniqueness of the story born from the personal experience of Agota as if it was thrown into the universe before things existed,

It is surprisingly overwhelmed by the feeling of loneliness and loss of "before existence", like a sense of surreal rather than universal.

However, at the same time as being surrounded by overwhelming loneliness and sense of loss, which is also called universal, forest - like sensation,

There is a strange sense of unity accompanied by pain of division, such as sharing, or absolute sharing of pain which can not be shared.

At the end of the word and the country and family who have been lost and lost, the end of the blank words continued to be led to fill the sense of loss,

At the end of the flow which looks like returning to the preexisting blank again, the last sentence of the person standing like the last surviving of the universe,

Just as the two torn apart souls return home beyond great isolation, the pain of "as soon as it is division", as it was finding the only comfort and peace there.

Agota: If I thought it was a story tied to Christophe's personal experience, I was confronted with my own unique experience and loneliness,

And, as suddenly being thrust into the outer universe, like the foundation of my preexistence,

It is an incredibly truly amazing work that is thrown out and subsumed at once in a sensible but proprietary sense.

Lost wrapping everything is too big, rather there is no such as loss, loss or the like is only a white note before placing a letter,

It makes me feel like that everything is just going back there.

Like me, it is a work that I can not recommend as much because people who are dangerous at the very basis of identity may become more mental instability.


Recently, after 30 years of publication of "Bad Diary", Germany's Hungarian cooperation, Janshin Sirsch coined news on filming (10.3 Roadshow).

Agniesca, who won the Grand Prix at the Carlovi International Bali International Film Festival and went on to become a movie director candidate for several times, "Bad Diary", coach Holland,

"It's a testimony of hope for the situation in Hungary that turns right to the film," he said.

To my honesty, the political situation and the social system over this work are not related.

At the age of 14 that I read this work for the first time, the acts of "training" they had been doing and the thoughtful thought about the pain they followed were the same part with the one in my childhood, It was.

I thought that I was here.

I inadvertently asked the author, Agosta. I was driven by Christophe to urge Christopher to ask if somewhere you knew me somewhere.

There must be such a thing.

I thought that the background such as nationality, background, race, political religious social system, etc can not be related to what I was overlapping with "Bokura" under construction without any contact point.

I thought that anywhere, anytime, where there is some pain anyone can become an element of the world surrounding "we" that formed "we" in "we".

One human being, the organization, the society, when diverged from the pain, separated from their root, they are separated from themselves, but they operate on a system that swallows themselves,

It becomes a single gear that automatically shows a large virtual charity.

The characteristic of this work, caricature, is not a lively commentary of the people at the time of war, but when the pain is too saturated, the person separates the pain which is the root of herself, is separated from the pain,

I was beaten up from myself, the root of the reality before my mother tongue and my mother tongue my sense of pain sensation,

It is a real of the state of dissociation spirit (de la cine) liberated from the root of its own territory like "we", one of which was divided into two.

History, social system, psychology, philosophy, literary meaning, "bad diary" is an attractive work with something deeply told from various aspects,

Although I do not share the background history of this work nor the social system, I have grasped extremely private personal areas,

If the reason for the shock was not extremely personal, I did not attach to this work so far.

Where I am is also the same battleground as "We".

I am also in my war.

People living in such personal warfare are also in this transparent "peace" world, fighting invisible pain to solitude.

To them, for me, they are "we" and "we" in the bad diaries.


Agita was the only one that I wanted to meet the author of the work, to meet and tell the story, before and after, Christophe was the only one.

Despite being an illusion, I felt comfortable finding understators who could not be in this world.

I wanted to tell Agotta, you know me, you drew me, you touched the secret of my soul.

Agatta died on July 27th three years ago without any information being conveyed.

Neither my favorite author nor the loss of historical witnesses, none of them, I had a very personal loss of feeling.

However, Agotta who hypothesized to the twin, who continued to have the pain of separation, division, loss, never reunion, everlasting loss, I mind the way of Christophe's soul.

I also separated from the root of what I am, the one that is closest to me in the world, separated from the thing that is the closest in the world, divided apart, like self-division, self-division, like "we" ,

It was left alone outside the world.

My words will never reach forever.

A twin record that survived in vain circumstances despite their rules.
A scene that occurred from Eastern Europe and was polished in French.
There is a sequel to be swallowed by Moebius' ring about "two people"
There is refreshing which blew away as if it is inversely proportional to the weight of contents when it is a "bad diary" alone.
Perhaps it was the biggest topic (problem?) In a foreign work in the 90's.

It is such a lie that it is lightly spoken as "to accept as it is" or "to see objectively".
As there is a troublesome susceptibility device called mind, people can only touch the reality through a filter called self.
Therefore, they write sentences that excluded everything they felt into big notes.
From oblivion, beautification of memory.Degradation.Note which only written actions to escape distortion of emotion.
The reader is looking at the sentence, the work progresses.
And the sentences filtered with two heads and four eyes had the power to act strongly on the reader.
(From that point on I think that the introduction to the synopsis of Hayakawa Bunko is "It's a lie."
They will not use the word "human ugliness or sorrow", "warmly" or "dark shadow".
It will disable sentences at the time of ambiguity and subjectivity entering. )

Based on this work, I do not intend to come up with that war.
To put it other way, for example, I think I resemble explaining to Ichiro that I do not play baseball but "I hear that you can do so many hits".
Also, since the translator has been given a sharp consideration and comparison with actual events at the end of the book.
(And translator 's author introduction can be read as a short but excellent biography.)

However, it was interesting that an explanation was given about the scene where the ears are closed and the mouth is opened in preparation for the explosion of the mine of the last magazine in an article browsed in the previous magazine.
Reason: Because they (and the author) knew that if you close your mouth they suffer damage to the tympanic membrane and internal organs with sudden changes in pressure. A lot
(The Sneaker 2001 Mon. No., "Military novel book guide")

I admired that those people read like that, you can do a variety of reading with firmly framed works.
Even though I put such end of foliage and leaf sideways, I think that it is content that is applicable to readers of any country.
