    review The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History ê PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History “Once History inhabits a crazy house egotism may be the last tool left to History” ― Norman Mailer The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as HistoryIt has been a long time since I've read Mailer I read The Executioner's Song when I was a Mormon missionary in a Lazyboy while my companion snored in the next room in Grand Junction Colorado in 1993 I read Harlot's Ghost my after my sopho year in college Mailer is fascinating to me At the same time he is both an irritating egoist chasing the tail of Twain Hemingway and Fitzgerald and never uite grabbing it But he is also at his best a tiger of modern journalism He and Hunter S Thompson Tom Wolfe and other New Journalists showed that print wasn't dead That in the age of TV however it needed to reinvent itself and break some of the static and almost dead boundaries When Mailer is off he is horrible his

    review The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History ê PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History The Pentagon rose like an anomaly of the sea from the soft Virginia fields its pale yellow walls reminiscent of some plastic plug coming out of the hole made in flesh by an unmentionable operation There it sat geometrical aura complete isolated from anything in nature surrounding it Mailer won the Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction and the National Book Award for this account of the October '67 March on the Pentagon the March an act of protest against the Vietnam War Wikipedia notes that the book is associated with other nonfiction novels of the time such as Capote's In Cold Blood Thompson's Hell's Angels and Wolfe's Electric Kool Aid Acid Test As I reread the book my copy an old Signet paperback with a cover that I can't find listed on GR I had to contend with two non diegetic running commentaries in its narrow margins One was written by whoever read the Signet p

    review The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History ê PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as HistoryOccasionally I have to pay homage to my roots No Not the Detroit suburbs or the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church To the 1960s where I spent what turns out to be my formative years In the past week I have read three Kindle mysteries that got my adrenalin pumping and my conscience thinking I had to do something better with my time Part of the attraction was my new Kindle Paperwhite so I was feeling disloyal to old fashioned hard covers Part of it was that

    review The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History ê PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as HistoryThis book upon its publication in 1968 swept the highest awards for non fiction the Pulitzer and National Book Awards This was one of the entertaining and well written books that I only gave three stars to The book is largely about Mailer himself and is written in the 3rd person which was frustrating to read It would have been so much better if Mailer had simply inserted the word I instead In fact I began to make the word substitution myself and it flowed readily The other aspect of the book

    review The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History ê PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as HistoryI read this thing 49 years ago when I was still in high school At the time I found it wonderful As a behind the scenes view of an anti Viet Nam war demonstration it was tremdendously topical In retrospect it appears to be an example of gonzo journalism as Mailer described his own experiences rather than the demonstration per se As I had not yet read anything by Hunter S Thompson it seemed then very newJuvenile Fiction and adult fiction are separate categories I suppose then that the Armies of the Night counts as Juvenile Non fiction As such it is still terribly dated Don't waste your precious time on a book which for a year or two may have been pertinent

    review The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History ê PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as HistoryThis is a vivid and compelling portrait of the 1967 anti war march on the Pentagon but Mailer often gets in his own way a sentiment with which he might be obliged to agree based on his own role in the story Not without reason is he counted among the so called Midcentury Misogynists and not infreuently does his prose begin to feel rather like the tiresome monologue of a man who greatly enjoys hearing himself talk to no real purpose All that said this book won awards for a reason and there is insight alongside the insufferable self importance which makes it a worthwhile read for anyone interested in this particular piece of history

    review The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as History ê PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Armies of the Night History as a Novel the Novel as HistoryIn this nonfiction novel Mailer depicts the Mailer character the Mailer character should not be mistaken for the wilier flesh and blood Mailer as a glowering self important drunk whose main objective is to marinate in whiskey and public adulationBy Mailer's own admission his attendance at the 1967 March on the Pentagon is a concession to his moral opposition to the Vietnam war which he would rather practice in the company of fellow aesthetes at exclusive cocktail parties Reluctantly he attends the march flinging contempt in every direction at comfortable liberal academics like the scent of the void which comes off the pages of a Xerox copy at hawkish conservatives at the United States corporation land at the young utterly lob
