Ad it during one long sitting taking in the dialogues without But maybe the bedroom scene relived or maybe I should rather say reTALKED from the bedroom scene relived or maybe should rather say reTALKED from possible angles Or the mystery of the lost ring unfolding like a round of Cluedo except that all protagonists seem to talk about a different ame or to remix the cards during the sessionSo you admit that not all new authors you try out are rubbishI never said thatI thought I heardThat s what happens when voices play Chinese Whispers in your headThat s what happened while Henry Green wrote Loving rightYes and those voices were just lovely and uniue and typical of their time and placeThat s enough talking now I am off to read another novel by Green as the song asks who wrote the book of love was it a person who emphasizes the mundanity of experience the pettiness of people the tedium of life is this book of love composed mainly of dialogue the sort of flat unremarkable dialogue that one tends to tune out while working waiting in line on the bus at the bank wherever is love as magical and life altering as changing the sheets or clearing the dining room table is life just predictable humdrum repetition I ve read comparisons of this book to the BBC series Upstairs Downstairs Downton Abbey and to the Altman film Gosford Park haha that s hilarious may as well compare dishwater and champagne this story of the lives of servants in an Irish estate "during world war 2 lacks the depth richness and resonance of any of those works it has much in "world war 2 lacks the depth richness and resonance of any of those works it has much in with the films of Chantal Akerman a microscopic fascination with the drab and the commonplace characters are supposedly realistic but to me at least lifeless does not eual real every single person in the world has an interior life that is interesting than the way they would look in a snapshot doing some tedious chore the book itself was rather a chorebut there are admirable things about it Loving is not what I d call a bad book there is a purity to it in the author s driving need to showcase futility and monotony and uninteresting lives and Green certainly does have an ear for dialogue the dullest of dialogue sure but dialogue that feels very real although his characters are boring and flat they don t even have the zest of caricature there are some comic moments to be found here and there at their inability to understand even simple situations let alone each other misunderstandings leading to frayed feelings and the inability of certain people to read a room are an unamusing but regular part of life in Loving they were my primary source of amusement Green also has a deft hand with the occasional surprising juxtaposition my favorite bit was a scene where a nanny drones on when reading a story about doves and love while her young charges pay her no mind and instead intently watch a roup of actual doves fornicate and bully each otherreview for Living herereview for Party Going here Loving reads like Gosford Park the Altman film but without the plot or any plot at all Green has been called a writer s writer s writer and praised to kingdom come by everyone that counts And yes his dialogue is masterful and there are real moments of light in his prose His cinematic movement from scene to scene is unusual one character will look out a window at two others in the distance and the narrative immediately moves to them without a break Strange too his habit of this ing and that ing everyone after he s introduced them by name into a scene so that Edith for example walks into a room and we are told that this woman Edith then stepped uickly aside not a real uote but ives you the idea In its tightly drawn scenes and play of voices Loving has a way of flickering warmly through the mind after you set it aside I enjoyed it and appreciated it Personally however I think Anthony Powell at his best Buyer s Market The Kindly Ones Books Do Furnish a Room is better and funnier for all his melancholy Not that comparisons count for anything but there you Let Freedom Reign': The Words of Nelson Mandela. Henry Russell goUPDATE In bed before my alarm went off this morning it occurred to me This book is a fairy tale There s the standard opening once upon and standard closing ever after of course That s an obvious tip off But there s too the star crossed lovers sorta the castle definitely the threat from without IRA WWII insurance man etc Okay Iet it Not exactly sure what to do with it It took me a while to adjust to the cadence of Loving The novel is about the daily lives of servants in a large castle in Ireland during WWII It is all dialogue with Paper Crafts Magazine: Joy of Card Making (Leisure Arts gossip scandal alliances and coupling Everything is on the surface with flitting dark undertones The novel moves easily from conversation to conversation with no inner thoughts no character history no plot no conclusion The reader has to fill in blanks I found myself intrigued and involved Liking this novel and as it progressed but not uite loving it.

Don t think the comment is a tribute As background Loving is almost totally dialog without much description of setting character action or context As Loving is almost totally dialog without much description of setting character action or context I ll applaud the writer for withdrawing his pen when it came time for exposition the context that is available in the dialog isn t enough to enjoy this novel as much as one could if Green were to have stirred our five senses with some description some action What I imagine is that Green either as a challenge to himself or because he harbored a secret desire to write dramas and not novels or because he had a disdain "For Anything That Came Close "anything that came close exposition chose to write dialog and little else Transporting myself back to the landed Path to Sanity: Lessons from Ancient Holy Counselors on How to Have A Sound Mind gentry of 1942 Ireland a difficult proposition I try and imagine all that surrounds the statements that come from a newly promoted butler This is no small task in 2019 Even assuming I canet the context purely from dialog and that I can fill in my five senses I don t think the story is particularly compelling And so I understand how writers are duly impressed by Green s dialog and his ability to create something close to a fully formed world without much description but impressing the reader and Undiluted: Rediscovering the Radical Message of Jesus giving them a satisfying experience are not the same This novel reminds me of some movies I ve seen with a trick ending Those movies are often two hours of drudgery When the curtain falls and the lights come on I stand yawn head uickly for the exit and think how clever Same here What clever drudgery Loving is There were masters and servants servants and dogs they taught you how to touch your cap The Clash Something about EnglandThere were also peacocks those silly birds of vanityBothirls Rudram in Tamil giggled The sky was overcast so that the light was dark as though under water The afternoon was warm It was the first afternoon to be warm since a This is the first Henry Green I have read It is uite a claustrophobic novel Updike called Green the saint of the mundane and indeed very little of any significance actually happens It has been compared to Gosford Park and there are some surface similarities but rather less action Loving is set in a rambling country house in Ireland during the early years of the Second World War The Tennant family move between their Irish country seat and their homes in England primarily London The servants are mostly English and remain in Ireland whether the family are in residence or notLoving revolves around the daily routines of the servants their petty suabbles worries loves hates and workaday stresses The war is at a distance but there are storm clouds on the horizon There are clouds closer to home relating to some of the local Irish estate I wasn t expecting a stream of consciousness type novel but this is one my favorite versions of that narrative style that I ve encountered To me the best stream of consciousness novels end up being something I experience than I analyze oret deeply invested in and I loved just et lost in this crazy Irish castle in the waning days of WWII The intrigue the pettiness the fading days of the British aristocracy all stuff I loved I m looking forward to from Henry Green So what are you reading now Just another one of the novels I bought at the airportOh dear are you hating this one as well What Hating I m LOVING itWhat is it about Not about psychopaths killing off siblings and cousins before adolescence I hopeWell ood uestion Not much happens actually and that is the whole charm of the novel It s about people talkingWhat are they talking aboutWhatever suits them at the moment The plot consists of a long dialogue between different characters staying at a big mansion in Ireland during World War Two and they talk and talk and talk Ladies talk servants talk children talk The stories shift and change and uite often two people talk to each other about different things much to the delight of the reader who can catch up on two threads simultaneouslySounds confusingBut it s not The author is a KaBOOM!: One Entrepreneur's Quest to Build Community SAVE PLAY!

They were wheeling wheeling in each other s arms heedless at far end they had drawn up one of the "far end where they had drawn up one of the blinds Above from a rather low ceiling five reat chandeliers swept one after the other almost to the waxed paruet floor reflecting in their hundred thousand drops the single sparkle of distant day again and again red velvet paneled walls and two irls minute in purple dancing multiplied to eternity in these trembling pears of Who on God's Earth do you 'think' you are?: A true story about TRANSCENDING the ILLUSION of SEPARATION glass The serving staff was fortunate to be employed at the Irish Country Estate far from the bombings that were currently leveling London Charley Raunce is on the verge of a promotion as he waits patiently for the head butler to breath his last He will not only assume this new job title but will also finally be called by his real name Traditionally in the Tennant household he has been referred to as Arthur simply because the first young man employed in that position was named Arthur It is too much to expect for the Aristocratic family to remember new names Charley is head butler now and Mrs Tennant though struggling to remember is now reuired to call him Mr Raunce The household is left to their own devices most of the time as the Tennant family moves between their London home and the Irish countryside One might even say that they have a bit too much time on their hands Gossip is the best currency and spreading rumors about their employers and each other is the main form of entertainment All the servants have their own fiefdoms and protect those areas as if they were Knights of the Templeruarding the walls of a castle After all what they control about the household is the only justification for their existence Charley is enad with Edith and spends uite a bit of time planning ways to catch her by herself Although that is difficult as Edith and Kate are enerally paired together They are the two irls that are dancing under the chandeliers Henry Green has several scenes where the two maids are intimate than just Mesagerul good friends but maybe I am reading those passages with modern eyesCharley though is always after affection from bothirls Here Give us a kiss when an opportune moment presents himself He is rarely successful but it is all part of the Judy Blume: Fearless Storyteller for Teens game between him and the young women Peacocks roam therounds When one of the birds is strangled by a visiting boy the body of the peacock continues to appear and disappear from the strangest places This provides an ongoing bout of speculations about who was behind the now mystical peacock s movements Henry GreenHenry Green is not afraid to repeat words liking the lyricalness of using them again and again She folded the shutters back into the wall And Edith looked out on the morning the soft bright morning that struck her dazzled dazzling eyes Green is well respected by British writers many of them iving him credit for inspiring and improving the dialogue they write for their own novels There are some interesting interplay with conversations in this novel The humor is subtle and so is the sexuality that I could feel bubbling beneath the surface Time magazine included this novel in its TIME 100 Best English language Novels from 1923 to 2005 This novel also influenced the movie Godsford Park and the hit TV series Downton AbbeyGreen had interesting opinions about writing Prose is not to be read aloud but to oneself alone at night and it is not uick as poetry but rather a athering web of insinuations Prose should be a direct intimacy between strangers with no appeal to what both may have known It should slowly appeal to fears unexpressed it should in the end draw tears out of the stone I had to see what a person named Dig looked like Adelaide Biddulph YorkeGreen s real name is Henry Vincent Yorke and he is descended from wealthy landowners He studied at Oxford University where he developed a friendship and rivalry with Evelyn Waugh Typing his name just now reminds me how tragically long it has been since I ve read Waugh Green married his second cousin the Hon Adelaide Biddulph in 1929 Her nickname was Dig which I find rather charming for someone of her pedigree Green published his last novel in 1952 and become a scholar of the Ottoman Empire a recluse and an alcoholic until his death in 1973 It is tragic how many writers artists and movie stars end up in similar circumstances as their creativity turns to dust I ve always preferred character driven novels to plot driven ones but I m not sure what to make of a dialogue driven novel Especially one so laden with seemingly purposeful obfuscation What s What Am I Doing with My Life?: And other late night internet searches answered by the great philosophers going on Who s zooming who Who s even who for that matter Two different Alberts a Charley who used to be known as Arthur and who is now trying at being a Mr Raunce I think this novel is interesting as a literary oddity Some say Loving is defined by what it excludes rather than by what it contains That s right though One of his most admired works Loving describes life above and below stairs in an Irish country house during the Second World War In the absence.
