SUMMARY Ù PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ Ellen Kushner

Rison to Wolfe actually made sense its unbalanced in a way that maybe isn t productive but driven by intensely powerful eeling and imagination a weakness though is it starts slow and took about 70 pages to really start working but then after an otherworldly surreal hunt scene interrupted by music and a riddle a dove starts crying tears of blood and you understand what makes this book so exceptional i read all but ten pages of this on a cross country School Dazed flight and it was an intensely powerful experience even if it was difficult to get into I love novels like this thatlesh out a traditional tale while remaining true and aithful to the source material Like Robin McKinley s Beauty Donna Jo Napoli s Zel etc This book retells the legend of Thomas the Rhymer a minstrel taken under the hill or seven years of service to the Chinese Fairy Tales Fantasies: Folio Society Edition faerie ueen who returns with the gift of being unable to tell a lie It brings to life Thomas and those who know and love him letting a readereel not that what they d heard previously of the tale was wrong but that they have been given a privileged glimpse of heretofore unknown details and truths of the past It s not really an exciting or action packed book but it is a lovely and magical one It took me a while to get into this version of Thomas the Rhymer The story is told in our voices *the voice of an old man who Thomas in almost as his own son Gavin the voice of *voice of an old man who takes Thomas in as his own son Gavin the voice of Thomas voice of Gavin s wife Meg and the voice of the mortal woman who loves Thomas Elspeth The part in Gavin s voice didn t grip me so much but when I came to Thomas s part I could barely put the book down It s not ull of action and Elspeth doesn t play a part in Thomas coming back rom Faerieland Instead it s ull of emotion which builds right through the story until the Cooking for Company: All the Recipes You Need for Simple, Elegant Entertaining at Home final line so innocuous on its own makes my heart ache Without saying any about it I love the endThere are some beautiful passages in the book and some smaller lovely stories the story of the doveor one and the story of Thomas invisible servant or another And some of the characters are really wonderful particularly saucy ElspethIt s an interesting take on the story of True Thomas Thomas the Rhymer and I m glad I kept on with it after not really getting into Gavin s part of the story I thought it was rather magical reall. Unreal splendor of her magic kingdom and then returns to the world of dirt and work and passing ti.
Tion of the ballad elegantly told rom the perspective of our people Gavin and Meg the elderly couple who takes on Thomas *as a surrogate son bookend Thomas s own experience in Gavin and Meg the elderly couple who takes on Thomas *as a surrogate son bookend Thomas s own experience in and the ourth by *a surrogate son bookend Thomas s own experience in Elfland and the Dîwana Jan fourth by s mortal love Elspeth after he returns to the human world with his gift of soothsaying Kushner s language is so subtle lyrical and magical some passages near left me in tears She has such alair or words and this book is all about that the truth of words I really admired the shifting perspectives and how all our were needed as separate pieces of the puzzle to come together The reason why I remain conflicted over the book is because it put me through every emotion a human could eel I m not sure I enjoyed that eeling at all though it attests to its power Some parts were "funny some were unbearably painful It hurt I elt Thomas s "some were unbearably painful It hurt I elt Thomas s and loneliness living his half life in his servitude Might I also add Kushner s language also extends to some very sexy passages particularly because they are so restrained and perfectly worded hoo Some bits I reveled in the normality of country life I Naples! felt Elspeth s chapped hands and Meg s heartyood I can t help but come away The Curious Cases of Cyriack Skinner Grey from this book without seeing it as a tragedy I can t see his time in Elfland except as a CURSE shiny and glitzy but otherwise detrimental to his humanity Ielt so much pain Itsuka for Elspeth at the end knowing he was gone knowing he had loved others I wanted passion between them I wanted it to prove that mortal love could be just as passionate as whatever Thomas had with the Elf ueen Elspeth is certainly worthy I loved their arguments at the beginning but itelt like she got the short end of the stick in pretty much every way Sigh I also wanted exploration of Thomas s soothsaying and whether it was really a gift A really intetesting extremely unusual novel Its sort of an example of what antasy might have been like if Tolkien had never existed with a deeply character driven storyline and a setting very rooted in old England and its mythology sort of like Spencer or something its largely a down to earth almost realist novel interrupted by 100 pages of the strangest most surreal storytelling I ve seen in a while A riend of mine compared this section to the wizard knight by Gene Wolfe and or one of the irst times ever a compa. Instrel who is abducted by the ueen of Elfland and lives or years without count not aging in the. This was a book I read sometime in the 90s 1995 is *A Rough Guess After *rough guess after it rom the Science Fiction Book Club It s a masterful re telling of the Scottish Live Bait folk legend of Thomas of Erceldoune a 12th century minstrel who was apparently an actual person who was said to have been abducted by the ueen of Elfland to serve heror seven years as the price of a kiss and to have returned with the gift or curse of never being able to say anything but the truth The author s treatment is scrupulously No Strings Attached faithful to the Middle English ballad version of the tale which I d read previously butleshes it out much richlyKushner uses Fancy Strut first person narratorsor the Northern California: A History and Guide - From Napa to Eureka four part novel each part narrated by a different human character Thomas himself is one of theour Each character male and Unbreathed Memories female is delineated very realistically coming aliveor the reader as does the Fairy ueen herself granted she represents a kind of being that doesn t actually exist but you eel that if the ae were real she s exactly the sort of person their ueen might be The author s knowledge of and eel For The Period Is the period is she evokes medieval Scotland very effectively and she clearly knows the legends and literature of that day each part is introduced by period epigraphs Her version of Elfland has a subtle tie in to Arthurian legend which I ound a nice touch She also doesn t censor the erotic elements in the old legends in which the A Sally Lockhart Mystery 2 fairies wereull bodied beings who could be sexually attracted to humans and vice versa I Love My Dad for instance she interprets the kiss in the tale probably correctly as a convenient shorthandor something involved but she handles this uite tastefully with nothing explicitEven though she s writing antasy and describing events that can t occur Kushner writes in a way that s psychologically true and that can t occur Kushner writes in a way that s psychologically true and expresses real world truths she also evokes genuine caring or all of her important characters and spins a bittersweet tale that conjures real emotional involvement It also doesn t hurt that in my opinion she s one of the best English language stylists writing today considered just in terms of her mastery of and treatment of language This novel earned the World Fantasy Award when it was published and it couldn t receive any less than ive stars Noni Speaks Up from me Thomas the Rhymer is a worthy and beautiful noveliza. Based on theamous ballad Thomas the Rhymer is a dramatic Handbags and Gladrags fictionalized account of the medieval
