Palatul Viselor cea mai teribila si mai nemiloasa caricatura a totalitarismului in descompunere dupa cum spunea Andre Clavel a aparut intr o prima varianta Slujbasul de la Palatul Viselor la Tirana in 1981 si a fost interzis de regimul comunist al lui Enver Hodja Kadare isi publica versiunea finala in 1990 la Editura Fayard la scurt timp dupa emigrarea in Franta Romanul probabil cea mai curajoasa carte a lui Ismail Kadare surprinde cosmarul orwellian amplificat intr o izbucnire violenta a istoriei moderne impletin ”Mark Alem pressed on his mouth dry despite his attempts to reassure himself After all what did it really matter if he did get lost? He wasn’t on some vast plain or in a forest He was merely inside the Palace But still the thought of getting lost terrified him How would he get through the night amid all these walls these rooms these cellars full of dreams and wild imaginings? He’d rather be on a frozen plain or in a forest infested with wolves Yes a thousand times ratherHe hurried on faster How long had he been walking now? Suddenly he thought he hear a noise in the distance Perhaps it’s only an illusion he told himself Then after a little while the sound of voices burst out again clearly this time though he still couldn’t tell what direction it came fromHe went down another two or three steps and found himself in another corridor which he deduced must be on the ground floor The sound of voices faded for a few moments then returned nearerMark Alem was practically running by now his eyes fixed on the end of the corridor where a faint suare of light came in from outside Please God let it be the back door An empty seemingly endless hallway can give a person a sense of disassociationThere are no signs directing people in the proper directions at the Palace of Dreams Mark Alem finds himself lost not only in the corridors of the Palace but also in the hour upon hour day to day work of selecting and interpreting dreams He is descended from a prominent family called the uprilis They have contributed generations of powerful men to the Balkan Empire ”For nearly four hundred years the uprilis had seemed fated eually to glory and to misfortune If its chronicles included great dignitaries secretaries of state governors and prime ministers they also told how just as many members of the family had been imprisoned or decapitated or had simply vanished”There are very few powerful families in the history of humanity that have not found themselves on the losing side of a power struggle at one point or at several points in history After a few messy decapitations or uarterings these families eventually rise from the ashes sometimes those ashes are relatives and find that eventually the state has need of their services again Now Mark Alem’s mother is a uprilis which means it is not evident immediately to the people he meets that he is related to that family He is timid enough that he does not offer that information readily Of course when he is summoned to the Palace of Dreams to be offered a position they are very aware of who he isHe is assured he is the right sort of manInstead of starting at the bottom he starts in the middle of the hierarchy He moves up so uickly he barely has time to settle into one job before he is sent on to the next one Given the nature of the job which is to select dreams and interpret those dreams with the most important ones being sent to the Sultan to help him make decisions about the course of action he will take in running the empire you would think there would be a long and arduous training regime There is not at least not for Mark Alem but as the plot advances we start to get inklings that he is a pawn in a much bigger much dangerous game He is absolutely oblivious He is paranoid and nervous but doesn’t know exactly what he should be paranoid and nervous about He is too worried about his workload and whether his interpretations of these dreams are correct He wears out erasures writing what he thinks and then becoming paralyzed with doubt as to how his superiors would interpret his thoughts Like any good bureaucrat he finds it is much safer to stifle any creativity and pass along the most bland safest interpretations of the dreams he finds in his folder Not that they need a reason to

It was as if dreams no longer dared visit him knowing he'd fathomed their secrets and could tell them to go and find someone else to play their tricks onWhat had happened then to life to mankind to everything here below? There he smiled inwardly as if at some precious secret there in his files all was so different so beautiful so full of imagination The colors of the clouds the treesthe snow the bridges the chimneys the birds all were so much vivid and strong And the movement of people and things was freer and graceful like stags running the mist defying the laws of space and time How tediousgrasping and confined this world seemed in comparison with the one he now servedThere before him lay the melancholy aggregate of the sleep of one of the vastest empires in the world than forty nationalities representatives of almost all religions and of every race if the report had included the whole globe it wouldn't have made much difference To all intents and purposes it covered the sleep of the entire planet terrible and infinite shadows a bottomless abyss from which Mark Alem was trying to dredge up a few fragments of truth Hypnos himself the Greek god of sleep couldn't have known than he did about dreams
