    EBOOK or KINDLE (Revolutionary Road) Author Richard Yates I let out a whoop of laughter on about page 180, when I finally figured Frank Wheeler out. You see, Frank spent most of his youth a scattered, bashful schmuck. Then after WWII, as a Columbia student and Village dweller, he started getting laid all the time, thanks to a theatrically brooding pseudo intellectual schtick. Ne

Because during the Fifties there was a general lust for conformity all over this country, by no means only in the suburbs—a kind of blind, desperate clinging to safety and security at any price."

    EBOOK or KINDLE (Revolutionary Road) Author Richard Yates watching this movie last night made me want to read the book immediately after. and it's not a terrible movie, it's just a little hammy, and the tone is uneven whether these people are meant to be seen as victims of the stultifying, euthanizing effects of suburbia, or if they are at root unlikable people who deserve to be taken down a peg for their arrogance and their conviction that their involvement in this

Revolutionary Road Set in 1955 portrait of American suffocating grinding conformity Author Richard Yates on his novel I think I meant it as an indictment of American life in the 1950s Because during the Fifties there was a general lust for conformity all over this country by no means only in the suburbs a kind of blind desperate clinging to safety and security at any price Republished as part of the 1980s Vintage Contemporaries series Revolutionary Road is for my money the Great American 1950s Novel Richard Yates at his finest a true classic In the spirit of freshness I will shift the focus from the story of main characters Frank and April Wheeler to various ways the novel depicts 1950s American society and cultureTHE ALMIGHTY AUTOMOBILE Once their cars seemed able to relax in an environment all their own a long bright valley of colored plastic and plate glass and stainless steel Yates description here after those 1950s cars are off winding bumpy narrow streets and onto the spanking new wide highway Back in 1955 there still existed a contrast between narrow dirt roads and car friendly highways and freeways Richard Yates foresaw how the automobile would uickly come to rule and how American men and women could then relax behind the wheel and feel at home on the many smooth newly constructed car dominated roadsWORRYWARTS Frank spends all his work day anticipating April in her evening dramatic premier A mental projection of scenes to unfold tonight but nowhere in these plans did he foresee the weight and shock of reality Frank is a college graduate but hasn t learned a fundamental critical truth constantly projecting your life into the future is a sure fire formula for disappointment And all during April s actual performance Frank incessantly bites his nails and gnaws on his fist until it s a raw red pulp Such anxiety and insecurity Frank typifies the 1950s emotionally distraught worrywart As Richard Yates notes above a society of such worrywarts will cling to safety and security at any priceLOGORRHEA Could you please stop talking So asks April of Frank ridding home after her theatrical disaster She doesn t realize she is asking the impossible since this is America 1955 where silence has become the dreaded enemy an entire society of know it alls drowning in their own chatter Talk as a prime tool to establish how absolutely right you are And if anyone else doesn t see it your way or dares to disagree God help them they must be uickly set straight Yak yak yak jabber jabber jabber fueled by those two prime 1950s pick me ups chain smoking and martinisBABBITT LIVES Frank and April s suburban realtor a two faced despicable intrusive gatekeeper of the growing suburbs Mrs Givings runs around doing her best to make sure new residents euate personal value with real estate value Frank s inability to stand up to this loutish boorish woman speaks volumes to his insecurity and pitiful lack of characterA WOMAN S PLACE Nowhere is Frank s hypocrisy and ugly ego on display than in his dealings with his wife April Frank condescendingly snickers at the middle class mentality and lifestyle where Daddy is always the great man and Mommy always listens to Daddy and sticks by his side but Frank uickly boils over into a rage at those times when April doesn t do exactly that listen to him and sticks by his side Turns out April is uite capable of speaking her own mind especially in matters of importance such as dealing with her pregnancy and the decision to have a child This novel captures how the 1950s scream out for much needed women s liberationTELEVISION RULES Frank and April s choice to have a TV in their new suburban house Why not Don t we really owe it to the kids Besides it s silly to go on being snobbish about television The author s penetrating insight into 1950s mentality educated men and women want to scoff at television thinking their tastes much too cultivated and refined to constantly stare passively at the boob tube but that s exactly what they do for hours and hours Owe it to the kids sheer balderdashTHE WORLD OF MEN AND GIRLS Every single scene in Frank s midtown Manhattan office is a revealer of the strict stratification in the grey flannel 50s men doing the serious work on this side girls performing secretarial and filing on that side And it goes without saying every single person in the office is white Frank s father s name was Earl a serious handicap in a world of Jims Teds Toms Mikes and Joes since in workplace USA men are called by their shortened first names Ah to make such a big deal over names Just goes to show how suffocating and strict the conformity Sidebar I always have found it amusing that as soon as the post 1950s business world discovered women will work harder than men generally do a better job than men and work for a lot less pay then men all of a sudden surprise surprise huge shift in the American workforceTRUE REBELLION AND PSYCHIATRY Serious energy is infused into Yates story when April and especially Frank are given a dose of what it really means to rebel against standardized conventional society John Givings fresh from a mental hospital pays a number of visits to their home In the black and white 1950s world if someone had to be dragged off to a mental hospital aka nut house loony bin funny farm that person was instantly labeled totally insane or completely crazy placed on the same level as a leper in a leper colony And God help the poor soul who is told they should see a psychiatrist In the 1950s telling people they need mental help was a key method of intimidation and control as Frank well knows when he tells April she needs to see a shrink THE LURE OF MONEY AND SUCCESS Oh Frank how you spin 180 degrees when a company executive sits you down gives you some honest to goodness appreciation and judges that you Frank Wheeler have what it takes to join him in a new business venture and use your ingenuity to move up in the company and make some serious money With such a glowing prospect following April s plan of moving to Paris so you can sit around and fine yourself begins to smell like a big pile of dog you know what THE KIDS Frank and April have two children six year old Jennifer and four year old Michael running back and forth in the backyard playing with the neighborhood boys and girls but most of the time sitting in front of the TV watching cartoons And where will Jennifer and Michael be as teenagers in 1969 At Woodstock wearing their hair long smoking grass listening to Joan Baez and Richie Havens and Santana Bye bye 1950s Good riddanceAmerican author Richard Yates 1926 1992

Really Tough LoveYates has a reputation as a chronicler of the smug years of post WWII America Perhaps But as an artist he is much than a period sociologist Yates s understanding of the folie a deux which we call marriage is profound The reasons two people find each other attractive are buried in experiences of which neither is conscious much less rationally able to think about To call such attraction love is euphemistic It may be at best an attempt to redeem or complete oneself that might eventually develop into love but only if the underlying reasons are resolved sufficiently and replaced Subseuent decisions to bring children into such an indeterminate situation are likely based on eually fatuous thinking It seems amazing therefore that the survival rates of marriage are as high as they are and that of us are not functionally psychoticYates raises the perennial if not eternal uestion of the nature and implications of commitment I recall the distinction made when I was in the services between making a contribution and making a commitment in one s breakfast of bacon and eggs the chicken has made a contribution the pig is decisively committed Does this anecdote express the reality or essential ethics of commitment Are the reasons for making commitments misguided or not relevant to a continuation of a commitment Do changed circumstances including improved awareness of motives abrogate the demands of previous commitments Can Til death us do part be anything than irrational optimism and encouragementPersonal sovereignty is analogous to national sovereignty The implication would seem to be that treaties contracts agreements are never unconditional never intended as eternal There may be conseuences of non compliance with any of these but acceptance of conseuences is part of sovereignty the share out of community property loss of mutual friends increased psychological and social tensions and of course the fate of the next generation The calculus of contract termination may be complex but doesn t seem to imply any absolute moral constraints On the other hand can what we believe to be considered judgment be anything than hapless struggleThe alternative to withdrawal of commitment is what seems to fascinate Yates We try to work things out In order to deny or at least delay the possibility of broken commitment we tell each other stories Stories about the past and how we arrived at the present could prove therapeutic by uncovering unconscious reasons and reasoning But we tell stories about the future instead about alternatives lives in exotic locations doing interesting work with stimulating friends and colleagues The stories promote hope but little elseWe hope these ideals can compensate for any originating defects But it s likely that Yates is correct these ideals simply reinforce the power of the neuroses already in play A new script perhaps but the same denouement There is no way to anticipate the psychological baggage we take on with our partner The piper will be paid Pain is inevitable The issue is who pays and when Unambiguously happy endings are not within the range of the possible

I read this in anticipation of seeing the film It is a grim tale The primary characters are April and Frank They both hold a rather lofty opinion of themselves but fail to actually do anything with their gifts real or imagined They find themselves stuck in a classic suburban nightmare of disenchantment with their circumstances and resentment of each other The affection they do feel for each other comes and goes mostly goes as they wallow in their narcissism She imagines a wondrous life for them in Paris He comes to realize that maybe he is really ordinary and not the extraordinary person he has convinced himself and many around him that he is Richard Yates 1926 1992 image from The New CriterionThere are themes here about character being revealed in how we cope with stress with self awareness Ultimately April opts out unable to cope Frank attempts to adjust to his opportunities in the world when it becomes clear to him that his loftier esoteric leanings were a form of self delusion All the characters here are pained Perhaps the most overtly pained person is the institutionalized violent son of a real estate agent His role here is as truth tellerThis book was written in the early 60 s about the 50 s It has surprising relevance today particularly if one sees it as a character study The s of those times have hopefully passed Abortion while still frowned upon is not illegal or as deadly as it was then The characters here are also skewed a bit with detail being given to Frank for example than to April We see inside his head uite a bit and understand him better It does not make us like him any better I found many of April s outbursts inexplicable blaming herself outwardly at least for this and that I could not see how she would reach such conclusion Yes I know people do this have even swum those waters myself But while I may be missing something here I found it a bit tough to swallow Revolutionary Road is definitely an interesting piece of work with a keen eye for self delusion and a larger picture scan of an era Good stuff if you do not mind being a bit bummed out It may encourage you to give a thought to how you might be kidding yourself And that makes it a worthwhile read
