It s easy to describe what Invisible Cities is not rather than what it is as it s really very difficult to ascertain which category it can be put into it neither has a clear plot nor characters are developed as they normally are it can t be called a novel or collection of stories can t be put in any one genre since it surpasses so many but still something extraordinary something which can t be described in words which can only be felt The book has loose dialogues between emperor Kublai Khan and a Venetian explorer Marco Polo Polo is ordered to explore the empire of the Khan and to tell parables with which to regale the ageing and freuently impatient conueror with descriptions of every city he has visited on his long peregrinations through Kingdom of Kublai KhanThe parables are surreal in nature and prose is very lyrical however I wonder how lyrical it would be in its original language The book is divided into parables about fifty five imaginary cities which are categorized into eleven groups of memory desire sign thin trading eyes names dead sky continuous and hiddenDifferent groups are associated with different themes as Cities Memory stories are philosophical thought experiments about nostalgia history discarding old Memories which are formed through word of mouth and forming their own As this wave from memories flows in the city soaks it up like a sponge and expands The city which cannot be expunged from the mind is like an armature a honeycomb in whose cells each of us can place the things he wants to rememberAt this point I feel It s not possible to review the book though I made a futile attempt and the I think about the book the I feel I have to re read it and then read it againHowever there is one thing which I can surely say about Invisible Cities that it s A lucid dream one which can be experienced and can t be described

Invisible Cities Imagined Lives Marco Polo was a dreamer He had great ambitions wanting to be a traveller a writer and a favored courtier He wanted to live in the lap of luxury in his lifetime and in the best illustrated pages of history later But he could only be a dreamer and never much Was it good enough He never travelled anywhere and spent his life dreaming away in his Venice and is remembered to this day as the greatest explorer and travel writer of all time How did that come about It is a tale about the triumph of imagination over experienceIn Venice that city of water a network of canals and a network of streets span and intersect each other Marco Polo was traveling in a little boat in that Venice and thinking of the Marco Polo he was meant to be when his imagination began to soar All the travelogues he wanted to write started coming to his mind A whole book of descriptions all made of poems that would describe the beauty of this city like those waves reflecting it in varied shapes among their ripples He watched the people moving along the streets each eye seeing the same city differently dependent on the angle of observation and speaking in a language of symbols and images that is powerful than words can ever be The river is the story the river is the book arranged in perfect sinusoidal waves of its own and choosing as its reader the greatest of all appreciators the book catches the splendor of the city and reflects it for your patient eyes in a sort of primitive cubism leaving it to you to make out all its meaning and all its poetry and to see ultimately yourself in that reflection of all the cities that imagination could possibly buildHe started going on long voyages into his own mind into the reflections of Venice and into the reflections of those reflections And then he wrote them down and he spoke of them and he sang of them Men stopped to listen They paid to hear him first with time then with gold then with diamonds and great honorsThe Venetian was soon summoned to the court of the great Kublai Khan who was also a dreamer He envisioned himself to be the greatest of rulers his kingdom expanding and pouring over the whole vast world until all the world was under him He knew that information was power and he wanted to know of every single city under him and of every city that was to be under him On the day when I know all the cities he thought I shall be able to possess my empire at last He wanted Marco polo to be his eyes and ears and sent him off with instructions to visit the most far flung and exotic provinces and to understand the soul of every city and to report back to himMarco Polo bowed every time and with great aplomb set off for his great voyages Next week he would be in his beloved Venice dreaming up the world a world real than reality with all the ingredients needed to construct a city memories desires signs skies trade eyes sounds shapes names and the dead He spoke of old cities with gods and demons in it of cities yet to be with airplanes and atomic bombs coloring their movements and of cities that should have been with happiness and sorrow apportioned in balance What separates the dream s reality from the dreamer s reality He pondered on this mystery with every city Maybe all successful men dream our lives as it should be while rotting in some sewer and maybe all unhappy men dream their unhappiness in life while rotting in some palace Maybe we can only continue our chosen destinies and everything else is a dream It is only invisible cities we can construct And we can reflect on them only through imagination and fiction He knew his cities were realIt took many years for the Great Khan to realize that Marco Polo wasn t describing cities so much as the human mind and experience He realized that every city whether imagined by Marco Polo or constructed by planned blueprints or grown from slow accretion are all dreams given shape by human hands by human ambition by a desire for a future that can be shaped In fact Marco Polo s cities started to seem to him real than any he knew to be real He learned that if men and women began to live their ephemeral dreams every phantom would become a city in which to begin a story of pursuits pretenses misunderstandings clashes oppressions and the carousel of fantasies would stopKhan now knew how to travel to really travel He could now accompany the great explorer in his prophetic journeys He could describe cities to Marco Polo and he could listen to him even as he filled in the details They could sit together in the courtyard and be silent and still travel through the most exotic and most truthful of citiesThen came a day when Marco Polo had to inform the Khan Sire now I have told you about all the cities I know There is still one of which you never speak Marco Polo bowed his head Venice the Khan saidMarco smiled What else do you believe I have been talking to you about The emperor did not turn a hair And yet I have never heard you mention that name And Polo said Every time I describe a city I am saying something about Venice When I ask you about other cities I want to hear about them And about Venice when I ask you about Venice Khan made an attempt at looking angry but he knew his friend could see through faces and all such masks To distinguish the other cities ualities I must speak of a first city that remains implicit For me it is Venice For those who pass it without entering the city is one thing it is another for those who are trapped by it and never leave There is the city where you arrive for the first time and there is another city which you leave never to return Each deserves a different name perhaps I have already spoken of Venice under other names perhaps I have spoken only of Venice You should then describe for me Venice as it is all of it not omitting anything you remember of it Memory s images once they are fixed in words are erased Polo said Perhaps I am afraid of losing Venice all at once if I speak of it Or perhaps speaking of other cities I have already lost it little by little Kublai looked at Polo He understood To tell a story you have to start from what you know best You have to put your soul in the story and then build the flesh the hair the face and the clothes around it The stories you tell the of your soul you invest and lay bare to the world When do you start fearing that you are as invisible as the cities you create Kublai continued to look sadly at his friendKublai asks Marco When you return to the West will you repeat to your people the same tales you tell me I speak and speak Marco says but the listener retains only the words he is expecting It is not the voice that commands the story it is the ear Then Khan knew that the sadness he felt so pressingly as he tried to force the wine down was not for his dear friend but for himself he now knew that as he was listening to all the stories that Marco Polo was describing to him he was only hearing stories that he was telling himself The cities were all real but they were not reflections of Marco Polo s soul they were not reflecting his Venice They were reflecting Kublai Khan s own soul his own empire ambitions desires and fearsDisclaimer Marco Polo Really Did Go To China MaybeEdit I got a message from a goodreader asking me why I put up the whole story of the book without a spoiler warning Please go ahead and read the review without any fear of spoilers the connection with the plot of the book if any is very tenuous this is an imagined plotbackstory for a book that deliberately

Heidi Whitman Brain Terrain I have not read Marco Polos s Journeys but I could imagine what he has written Had I read it I also would have had to imagine what he had written Same verbs different tensesAs I am sitting on a bench in front of a museum waiting for a friend a family of Italian tourists comes and sits next to me They come from the land of Marco Polo or maybe not may be from the land of Italo Calvino since I do not know if they are Venetians Italy was a projection of the Imagination in the nineteenth century Marco Polo did not know itThey carry a guidebook of the city of Madrid and are trying to make sense out of the book a book written in their language and also make sense out of the city written in the language of cities Universally understood CosmopolitanIt must be the monuments the streets the histories the nourishment the inhabitants the parks the related but different language that they want to understand They use the text and the reproduced images as the key to comprehend the Urbis and the originals standing in front of themMemoryAnd may be one of them the father remembers when he came here with his parents He could be telling his children now about his Memories But as they are listening they are also discarding those Memories and forming their own new future Memories of having visited the city with their parents And they will tell their future children who will also forget Remembering a Forgetting like waves of the same seaDesireTheir visit must have been prompted by some Desire to leave their everyday monotonous but comfortable life and look for excitement Depending on their age they could participate in the bustling Madrid night life in which Desires wildly run Age and Desire Are all of them captives of their Desire Spectrums Would I desire to unlock their DesiresNo Only mineSignsLooking around these Italians could observe that most Signs only signal the same as all the others International sign language has become a non sign language They mean samenessThin CitiesAs Europeans they should not be surprised to see that this is not a Thin City There are trees there are street lamps and there are some dreadful tall buildings It is a city that could grow horizontally because it is on a barren plateau And yet and yet it has steep roads And these do feel like pure verticals on a tired morning The city is hilly and the sharp drop comes as a surprise as one arrives at the Palacio Real where the Sabatini Gardens extend deep down Francisco Sabatini another Italian and architect and who has projected an invisible Italian uality to this city As if Marco Polo had been hereTrading CitiesWith no seaport it had to become a port of projections and become a matrix for the dispatches to far away ports And it did so contrary to Marco Polo s direction when his route was blocked by the Tartars This landlocked city would determine the launching of the black Galleons and sail them off cruising the sea routes to meet the successors of Kublai Kahn and Trade with them in that twin trading city Ma Nila Ma Drid Coming and going EyesThere is a building where there are many Eyes They are all moving and roving around looking at the walls at the colours and flat shapes on the walls And they continue looking and those walls with their images look back at them The paintings have been looking at eyes for a longer time than these eyes have looked at anything And there thrones a picture with which the imagination of a Venetian captured the Warrior on horseback looking over those eyes looking without seeing them Echoing the other Emperor when he had said to his Venetian describe to me your cities Emperor Charles V summoned Tiziano Vecellio and said to him paint me your worlds so that I can see them Tiziano painted

GermanAnd in Mandarin Ma de li for the understanding of Kublai KahnThe DeadThe monuments make the Dead alive that the current alive They remain and there are very many But since I have a Now I am interested in the fewer onesThe SkyIt is not true that Madrid has no sea It just hangs over its inhabitants The very intense blue of the Sky so deep an azure because of the dry climate and the elevation of the city makes one imagine oneself with wings which can be spread out to then set off with one s soul and swim in the airy oceanThe Ultra MarContinuousNight and day and Seasons And clocks many clocks They seem to divide time but they are phantasmagorias or devices that do the opposite from the magic emerging out of Phenakistoscopes and create the illusion of discrete detached distinct moments out of the unceasing ContinuousHiddenMost of the inhabitants are also tourists like this Italian family This is a city populated not just by passers in Life but principally by outsiders who were not born here Anonymous origins and undisclosed length of time for their open transit Whether in hotels or temporary homes everybody s lives remain invisible from each other And their realities are not deciphered in the guide book of the Italians just as Marco Polo did not succeed in deciphering his cities for the Great Kahn They will remain invisibleGreat ChanInvisible Cities forms part of the conclusion of Jonathan s Spence s The Chan s Great Continent China in Western Minds After reviewing the representation of China in Western minds starting with Marco Polo Spence tackles in the final chapter the three geniuses who understood what was at stake Neither Kafka nor Borges nor Calvino had ever been to China Yet to the Sinologist Spence they were the three bright minds who did not fall on the Orientalist trappings And Calvino was the one to have identified best the trappings of the mind in representing the fascinating unknown
