The Far Pavilions (Free E–pub) æ M.M. Kaye

The Far PavilionsA novel about India in the late 1800s I ve been utting off reading this book despite it being hugely famous and Das Glück der Azteken people constantly asking me if I ve read it because I mretty sure it s going to be obnoxiously ro colonialism The dedication for instance is to the author s husband and father in law British soldiers who served in India But I m not far enough into it yet to judge so erhaps I ll be Apoplexia, Toxic Shock, and Toilet Bowl Some Notes On Why I Write pleasantly surprisedI was uite amused by thisassage describing a woman who died after giving birth in a tent It was not her fault that Isobel died It was the wind that killed Isobel that cold wind off the far high snows beyond the asses It stirred up the dust and the dead ine needles and sent them swirling through the tent where the lamp guttered to the draught and there was dirt in that dust germs and infection and uncleanness from the camp outside and from other camps Dirt that would not have been found in a bedroom in Peshawar cantonment with an English doctor to care for the young motherI m What the Wood Whispers To Itself pretty sure the author a does not understand how germs work and b is way overestimating the value of a doctor in 1850 So I was afraid this book would be colonialist and it turns out I was right D As well as being terrible in all sorts of ways Rather than detail them all I think I ll just excerpt this bit for your enjoyment the context is that Anjuli an Indianrincess because of course she is has snuck out alone to meet Beyond Citizenship: American Identity After Globalization privately with Ash a British dude If it is for yourself that you are afraid said Anjuli sweetly you have no cause to be for I sleep alone and therefore no one will miss me And if I feared for myself I would not be hereHer voice was still barely than a whisper but there was so much scorn in it that the blood came up into Ash s face and for a fraction of a second his fingers tightened cruelly about her wristWhy you little bitch said Ash softly and in EnglishOUR HERO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN And no why her not being afraid should make her a bitch makes no sense in context If anything it s shocking because the rest of the book treats swearing much as 19th century literature would that is avoids it nearly entirelyThere s alsolenty of narrative discourse expounding upon the foreign ways of the East crafty Allerhand Fragliches prone to lying intricate and how they differ from the ways of the West straightforward honest fair and how impossible it is that ever the twain should meet However Our Hero Ash was raised as an Indian for most of his childhood and thus can cross the lines The example given for this is whenever he s asked a generalolite uestion What s your opinion or How are you he answers honestly even when one is expected to tell a white lie And this shows how foreign he is from those straightforward British I don t know why it bothers me that the author can t keep her racism straight BUT IT DOESI m going to read the next 800 Yolanda's Genius pages anyway because I have a Thing about finishing books I ve started but it s totally going to be a hate readAnother distressingassage for you all The context here is that Ash and Anjuli are in love but Anjuli refuses to run away with him because she Fettan promised to take care of her younger sister Shushila Ash caught her wrist and wrenched her hand away But I love you too And I need you Does that mean nothing to you Do you care so much for her than you do for me Do you And my happiness demanded Ash his voice harsh withain Does mine not matterBut it had been no good Nothing that he could say had made any difference He had used every argument and every Die Kunst Des Zeichnens: Die grosse Zeichenschule: Praxisorientiert und gut erklärt plea he could think of and at last he had taken her again ravaging her with an animal violence that had bruised and hurt yet was still sexually skilful enough to force a response from her that was halfain and half iercing rapture But when it was over and they lay spent and breathless she could still say I cannot betray her And he knew that Shushila had won and that he was beaten His arms fell away and he drew aside and lay on his back staring up into the darkness and for a long time neither of them spokeGOOD JOB ASH This "IS TOTALLY THE WAY TO CONVINCE SOMEONE TO SPEND " totally the way to convince someone to spend time neither of them spokeGOOD JOB ASH This is totally the way to convince someone to spend their with you act like a whiny brat and then abuse them That s what I like in a romantic hero I didn t even include the art where Anjuli tells him not to worry she knows how to make her future husband think she s a virgin and Ash is disgusted and angry that she knows harlot s tricksAsh continues to be a dick news at elevenStill terrible In recent developments of the terribleness Anjuli Ash s One True Love and her sister Shushila have been condemned to be burned alive I also have a lot of Doylist criticisms of the climatic event of the novel being a European dude rescuing an Indian woman from sati but let s stick to Watsonian terribleness for the moment But obviously Ash only really cares about saving one woman from this fate because yo he s not in love with Shushila so who cares what happens to her Or as he says to Anjuli when she feels obligated to watch Shushila WHO AGAIN IS HER SISTER till the end Shushila Ash spat out the name as though it were an obscenity Always Shushila and selfish to the end I suppose she made you romise to do this She would Oh I know she saved you from burning with her but if she d really wanted to repay you for all

you have done 
have done her she could have saved you from reprisals at the hands of the Diwan by having you smuggled out of the state instead of begging you to come here and watch her dieYou don t understand whispered Anjuli numblyOh yes I do That s where you are wrong I understand only too well You are still hypnotized by that selfish hysterical little egotistOr later after Shushila has died and Anjuli is still mourning her it s been like less than a month by the way You will not said Ash speaking between clenched teeth say that name to me again Now or ever Do you understand I m sick and tired of it While she was alive I had to stand aside and see you sacrifice yourself and our whole future for her sake and now that she s dead it seems that you are just as determined to wreck the rest of our lives by brooding and moping and moaning over her memory She s dead but you still refuse to face that You won t let her go will youHe ushed Anjuli away with a savage thrust that sent her reeling against the wall for support and said gratingly Well from now on you re going to let the oor girl rest in eace instead of encouraging her to haunt you You re my wife now and I m damned if I m going to share you with Shu shu I m not having two women in my bed even if one of them is a ghost so you can make up your mind here and now myself or ShushilaOH ASH SO ROMANTIC But hey it turns out to be okay because then Anjuli relates a long story about how Ash was right all along and Shush.
