I think I meant itas 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 culture THE 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 displaythan 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 riddance American author Richard Yates 1926 1992
