The Children's BookIale Todefright la accogliente casa nel Kent in cui Olive vive con il marito Humphry e i loro sette figli è in un certo senso il luogo simbolo in cui trovano espressione tutte le contraddittorie istanze politiche sociali e artistiche che attraversano e scuotono l'Inghilterra e l'Europa in uei decenni L'infanzia diventa oggetto di intenso fascino che trova riscontro in una straordinaria fioritura di libri per e sui bambini Con il passare degli anni tuttavia l'intonaco inizia a sfaldarsi sino all'inizio della guerra..

    FREE READ ↠ The Children's Book The Children's BookI looked forward to read this book I was ready for a sweeping saga about the turbulent years between the closing of the Victorian age and the dawn of the Edwardian with all its political artistic and social ferment and its culmination in the war to end all wars Who can better chronicl

    FREE READ ↠ The Children's Book The Children's BookI savored this novel every evening for the 2 months or so that I chipped away at its formidable length AS Byatt has written a whopping inimitable masterpiece of a heavy handed Victorian England succumbing to the blithe jaunty Edwardian era which in turn gives way to the disillusionment and terror of trench warfare and World War I Byatt so unapologetically erudite gives us a labyrinthine novel that is both devastating and whimsical It's full of complex

    FREE READ ↠ The Children's Book The Children's BookDisappointment beaten up by Byatt's wooden prose after which she vomited her semi digested research over me Apart from that it is a great book Admittedly I was disappointed because I had this idea that Byatt was a good and accomplished novelist Had I believed that this was the author's first novel I might have been excited by its promise and ambition fooling myself that future books with judicious rewriting and hard pruning would be good literature Ahhhggrh Reading this book I was struck somewhere round about half way through that this was a translation into English of Ragtime Since some of you may protest that Ragtime was written in English perhaps it is better to say that this is a translation into England Ragtime

    FREE READ ↠ The Children's Book The Children's BookThree days after finishing the audiobook version of this novel I’m still partly in the detailed and intricate world Byatt created I didn’t want the book to end and I miss the characters A saga about the lives of its inter related characters between 1895 and 1919 the novel concerns itself with the history of England and to a lesser extent Germany during that period It deals with subjects including Fabian socialism the Arts and Crafts movement neo paganism the anarchist movement education women’s suffrage writing for children puppetry and pottery It’s also concerned with parent child and sibling relationships sexuality truth trust deceit betrayal and hypocrisy The work is hugely am

    FREE READ ↠ The Children's Book The Children's BookIncluding some status updates material in this Not even at the halfway point yet but I am so baffled and dismayed I love Byatt loved Possession like everyone else but I schooled myself to love the Frederica Potter uartet and other novels too this book is all about topics I love and so it totally should be my jam as the kids say andinstead it's like the dire moment in Little Women when Meg wails about how the jelly won't jell I think the biggest problem is the characters some critics compared this to Middlemarch but Middlemarch is all about its characters who leap immediately to mind the idealistic Dorothea the vulnerable Lydgate wild Will vengeful Causabon each face and personality rendered distinct The relative flatness of people in Possession didn't matter because it was a satire and the amount of satire in the Frederica uartet contrasted with some real tragedies like Jude Mason's carried those people fairly well Frederica was that very odd thing a self portrait intended

    FREE READ ↠ The Children's Book The Children's BookIn my reading of this I alternated between deep admiration of Byatt and deep irritation with her She has put all the force of her prodigious talent into burying the threads of two or three really interesting novels of reasonable length in this over sized book In a way it is like a vast tapestry of the cultural movements in England and to some extent Germany from 1895 to 1919 with fascinating personal stories that can be perceived if you peer up
