SUMMARY ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Henry Green

Ee of his novels contrasting the lives of servants and masters Loving; workers and owners set in a. Living Henry Green s first novel published in 1929 when he was twenty four is wisely and wonderfully written in a minor key about minor characters who demand major attention through their flawed stumbling enduring humanityThe setting is Birmingham England where men work at a foundry that is foundering The owner is about to die but not yet and the son is about to take over but not yet Meanwhile the workers sing and chatter to one another gossip and commentand have womenfolk and children at home with just enough cash on hand to make it through the weekLily Gates is the moral center of the tale She s in her early twenties and must stay at home and take care of it for her father Joe Gates and her grandfather Mr Craigan as he is called She d love to have a job love to live the kind of life she sees in the movies love to be able to decide who is the better bet for marriage Mr Dale or Mr Jones both foundry workers This ensemble reminds me of Colm Toiban s Brooklyn but the delicacy and ingenuity of the prose its spontaneity reminds me of the flight of pigeons an airborne motif throughout the novelLiving is half overheard a uarter lyrical exposition another uarter striking uick paced encounter At the same time it is curiously phrased not only in Birmingham dialect but also in a kind of notational style wherein articles and prepositions are deliberately omitted creating stumps of sentences that are pleasant to trip over Some passages read like Dubliners others like Ulysses and then others like the sweeping montages of John Dos Pasos s USA trilogy capturing public houses the fizzing foaming fury of molten metal football match jousting and the unexpected intrusions of the foundry owner s son s romantic disappointments If he were not necessary to the unfolding of the plot he would be than expendableFor reasons that are not always clear Green divides this text into chapters The chapters themselves dart everywhere with no transitional language to remind us that something that once was happening is happening again and is further along toward the police station the sickbed or a desperately unhappy elopement that cannot be other other than it comes to be Mr Jones wants to do right by Lily he simply can t he doesn t have the money the professional skills the knowledge of the world or the support of his parents now lost somewhere in the maw of Liverpool where he cannot find themIn many ways Green illustrates the rule that there are no rules for writing fiction only that whatever you are doing you have to know how to do it which he does

    This book is allegedly one of the top 100 books of the century It is hideously terrible and completely unreadable It is basically a transcript of complete mundanities I can see how perhaps it was innovative when it was written but surely he wasn't the first to write about the downstairs of a great house but it

    Read Loving on the bus to Manhattan and on Roosevelt Island Thursday 23 August 2012 Green does a wonderful job of letting the characters speak for themselves with minimal third person omniscent narration It reminds me of a stageplay in that the dialogue reveals so much about the characters and their secrets longings and m
