William Faulkner ´ 0 review

review Absalom Absalom ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Nel gennaio del 1937 recensendo su «El Hogar» il recente Assalonne Assalonne Borges scriveva «Conosco due tipi di scrittore l'uomo la cui prima preoccupazione sono i procedimenti verbali e l'uomo la cui prima preoccupazione sono le passioni e le fatiche dell'uomo Di solito si denigra il primo tacciandolo di bizantinismo o lo si esalta definendolo artista puro L'altro più fortunato riceve gli epiteti elogiativi di profondo. How am I to put all the pain of this novel into a review The pain of the suffering characters The pain of the reader suffering with them There were moments when I felt I couldn t take it any when the carefully built puzzle added another piece to the beautifully decorated and carefully furnished hellscapeWhat makes you able to talk about that kind of pain then I could ask following the path of uentin and Shreve the two dialogue partners who preside over the story in the story trying to carve out truth in the muddle of prejudice pride hatred and occasional passion mostly unaccompanied by loveAnger I d say Anger at the fact that a monster like Sutpen can walk the earth admired as a godlike creature by the people who share his racist and misogynist revenge and entitlement thinking Anger that he has the power to put children into the world to CREATE like an evil mirror of the Creator of the Southern religion whose only purpose is for his glory and honour to be perpetuated in a pure male line Female descendants don t count and neither do sons if they have any trace of African American ancestry Some women are just about good enough to give pleasure if the occasion arises but their children are not even good enough to acknowledge their existence in front of the world Anger drove me and one uote broke my heart So it s the miscegenation not the incest which you can t bear As did the fate of Milly Jones and her baby GIRL A human being for Goodness Sake No not a vessel of Sutpen genes lacking y chromosomes Sutpen differs from his biblical source in that his heart is not broken like that of David confronted with Absalom s death He is merely offended in his right to perpetuate his meaningless string of genes in a line of white only male gorillas He pushed one old man over the edge and found his end in the most suitable way His curse lives on and on and on way beyond the magnetic closing lines answering the uestion put to uentin why he hates the SouthI dont hate it he thought panting in the cold air the iron New England dark I dont I dont I dont hate it I dont hate itRepeating the mantra in the same way a desperately caring person says I don t care I don t care I don t careBut we do and therefore books like this hurt A lot

Starting to read Absalom Absalom might feel at first like walking into your friends having an important conversation but because you missed the first half of it you can t tell whom it s about and why they sound so absorbed by it and they re so concentrated that they can t and won t listen to you reuesting that they please start over All you can do is try to make sense of the clues and signs you re able to grasp and try to figure out for yourself at least for the time being bits of the narrative Of course you could also excuse yourself and give them some privacy but you d be missing out on a great book Like the making of a pearl mollusks depositing calcium carbonate in concentric layers as a defense mechanism against a potentially threatening irritant such as a parasite inside the shell or even a grain of sand in rare cases isolating it from their mantle folds That s how I like to imagine William Faulkner wrote this novel he idealized the plot and his characters and then realized something tragic would have to happen to them that would be their demise the threatening irritant a crime and instead of telling his tale conventionally he slowly protected and isolated it with layers and layers of different perspectives from various unreliable narrators In how many different ways can the same story be told Can each one of these coexist on their ownThere are mainly four people Rosa Coldfield father and son Jason and uentin Compson and Shreve McCannon the latter s roommate in this uest of trying to understand and ultimately make sense of what they ve heard about the events that took place over the course of a century as the fates of the Sutpen Coldfield and Bon families are encapsulated from the 1800 s until the early 1900 sEach one of these four voices which at some point are all narrators of the story have some knowledge of what happened in certain periods of time Part of that knowledge though is pure guessing or interpretations based on their own points of view and so it s up to us who are reading a story from someone who s heard of a story from others to be careful as to what we can assume as fact or merely personal conclusion While Miss Rosa who s emotionally involved and was a living part of the tragedy fuels her narrative with sentimentality and bias Mr Compson relies on a hear and say account since he s heard it all from his own father uentin and Shreve approach the subject objectively in black and white ironically one might say considering this particular book just summarizing all the information they d obtained from several sources while still trying to attribute what were the underlying reasons in all of the character s actionsThe novel s plot is basically about the rise and fall of Thomas Sutpen a poor white man who has a project for his life since he was a teenager to have a big mansion a family and heirs to carry out his name Arriving in Jefferson Mississippi he is able to obtain some land and through the course of a few years builds up his sumptuous mansion The next step is to find a wife Ellen Coldfield a local woman whom he marries and gives him two children Henry and Judith It all seems to be working accordingly to his plans until Henry who s now in the University brings home for Christmas his fellow student and best friend Charles Bon whom Ellen Coldfield hopes will marry her daughter The simple possibility of this wedding brings drastic conseuences to the lives of the three families and only through analyzing their past we can begin to comprehend why an unexpected killing took place and how that altered Sutpen s schemes and how he felt he would have to try againCompleting the merits of the book Faulkner gives us beautiful and interesting analogies long Proustian sentences and uses a lot of visual elements to portray the character s feelings and he s still able to assign uniue ways in which all of his storytellers can express themselves and stand on their own as singular voices Not in all passages appears to be an obvious narrator but through paying attention to detail and getting acuainted with their manners it ll be easier to identify whose voice it is you hearRating while the story is in fact very interesting and keeps you curious until the end to find out what really happened to the families involved and begging for a reliable narrator who will just lay out all the cards for you the innovations in style and the narratives Faulkner employed here are what really grabbed my attention and impressed me the most I found Absalom Absalom so well crafted and written that I just couldn t help but wonder than a couple of times how did he ever idealized something like this For that 5 stars no less
