Free read The Children's Book ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB È un luogo uasi incantato il Victoria Albert Museum di Londra con collezioni straordinariamente ricche Non a caso Olive Wellwood autrice di libri per l'infanzia è venuta ui per trarre ispirazione in vista di un nuova storia E mentre conversa con Prosper Cain uno dei responsabili del museo l'attenzione dei loro figli adolescenti Tom e Julian che stanno perlustrando le infinite gallerie è attratta dalla mist BRILLIANT BUTBoth brilliant and flawed this book is an extraordinary achievement that doesn t always work but is nevertheless a riveting educational and inspirational read It was so beautiful and utterly engrossing that I loved it despite its faults and found it filling my thoughts and dreams for a considerable time after I finished it And it visits me stillIt describes the creative process principally writing puppetry and pottery in gloriously vivid detail as it relates to some Edwardian families but at other times reads like a history text book THEMESThe book is divided into four sections Beginnings The Golden Age The Silver Age and The Age of Lead but I find it helpful to consider its main themes HUGE CASTDescribing events in the interwoven and varied lives of a huge cast of 30 main characters over than 20 years Their individual importance waxes and wanes as the story progresses but all are significant though a few are not as well developed as others Because they are so intertwined it all feels rather claustrophobic and incestuous as the book progresses HISTORICAL CONTEXTThere is detailed historical context of arts and politics at the cusp of the 19th and 20th centuries Although those such as Rupert Brooke and the VA Museum are well known and the Wellwoods are clearly Byatt s invention a reader is not always sure what is fact and what is fiction so you have to learn to let go which is odd in the sections that focus on Fabians artists of various kinds theosophists suffragettes museums etc in general ART AND CRAFTIt is infused with a tangible love of the decorative arts via the characters who create objects and the interests of the museum curator the initial inspiration evolution of that idea and the process of using it to create something The detail is at times breathtaking you can almost feel the wet clay slip beneath your fingers like Philip who thought with his fingers and his eyes together The visceral power of art even on other artists is observed on seeing a Rodin Philip s first instinct was to turn and run This was too much It was so strong that it would destroy him Yet when several of them looked at the same sculpture none of them saw the same thing as the others For a writer thoughts had to stay in the head taking on an independent life becoming solid objects to be negotiated SECRETSNot everything is as it first seems even libertines strive to keep up appearances to some extent There are secrets that emerge some shocking than others and a couple that stretch credulity a little Discovery sometimes has unexpectedly subtle results she had been changed and she did not know how minding the lie than the fact itself because those who are lied to feel diminished whilst also realising that knowing it gave her power Sometimes people don t want to know the truth and if so does that vindicate the wrong that is hidden by a lie Grey invisible cats had crept from their bags and were dancing and spitting on stair corners PULLED TWO WAYSThis is the aspect that speaks most strongly to me In so many aspects of my life throughout my life I am pulled between two worlds two choices two realities Sometimes I impulsively pick one whereas at other times I agonise over the decision trying to avoid making one at allMany characters are torn between two worlds academia or marriage gay or straight wealth versus anarchy being old or young class barriers fact and fantasy an unreal world which seemed real than the real world multiple partners etc The women at Newnham College Cambridge felt themselves to be both demure and dangerous determined and impeded They found their situation both frustrating and wildly comic THE POWER OF STORIESThe power of story telling is the most fundamental theme and yet Byatt s own storytelling is the main weakness in this book Olive Wellwood is a published children s author who writes an endless story book for each of her children but you increasingly wonder whether the stories reflect or mould the children s characters Certainly they permeate the children s lives The magic persisted because it was hidden because it was a shared secret and parts of these stories are scattered around the book For some characters stories even hold the power of life and death BRILLIANT BUTThese multiple aspects cause problems the narrative style varies widely and at times there is too much catching up to do whether that be the lives of Byatt s characters or historical background When she is rattling off different people s thoughts in uick succession especially when using reported speech you have to read carefully to be sure of who is thinking what and at other times it is just a disjointed stream of facts Other parts are journalistic and then there are the fairy stories There is even some wry humour such as the character who realised he was able to be an anarchist because he was rich and later decided he could help the poor better by studying them than by getting to know them Nevertheless there is so much that is brilliant in this book As well as insights into creativity Byatt is especially good at portraying the inner thoughts and outward awkwardness of children of all ages The young desired to be free of the adults and at the same time were prepared to resent any hint that the adults might desire to be free of them PARALLELSThe first two sections of Hollinghurst s The Stranger s Child has many echoes of this See my review HEREByatt is a novelist who loves the academic approach to biography applied to fiction and semi fiction This passion is reflected in all four of her novels I ve now read with varying degrees of success I ve also read some short

Free read The Children's Book ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Eriosa figura di un ragazzo intento a disegnare alcuni dei preziosi artefatti Prende le mosse da uesto episodio e da uesto luogo carico di memoria di idee di creatività una narrazione che seguendo le vicende di uattro famiglie e di molti altri personaggi conduce il lettore dal 1895 alla prima guerra mondiale Todefright la accogliente casa nel Kent in cui Olive vive con il marito Humphry e i loro sette figli Some of my favourite thingsPresenting a wide panorama of history a large canvas of art in its different forms and a work that is very good literature The Children s Book ticks several boxes for me This novel itself is intensely imaginative and many of the characters in turn are creative and imaginative There are stories within stories layers within layers plots and subplots I couldn t help but visualise author AS Byatt as a puppeteer expertly manipulating her creations in this magical tour de forceThere are four sections to the novel Beginnings The Golden Age The Silver Age The Age of Lead These cover the period from the late Victorian 1895 to be precise through the reigns of Edward VII and part of George V s reign to 1919 after WWI The Anglo Boer War anarchists and assassinations the death of ueen Victoria Edward VII and George V Fabians Theosophists Suffragettes strikes WWI to name but a few are all thereAt the beginning the numerous offspring of the various families in this tale are young children with their own stories and histories and Olive Wellwood writes books for the children in her home

Just as monsters lurk in the dark corners of imagined children s stories so shadows loom in the real world and in the world of these children Olive hides all sorts of creatures and objects in the underground passages and hidden tunnels of the stories she writes for the children but the adults also hide aspects of themselves as well as facts from one another and particularly from the children Says Olive She had a sense when she thought about it which she tried not to do that everything unseen in her household had shifted its invisible place Things had always been behind thick felted invisible curtains or closed into heavy locked invisible boxes She herself had hung the curtains held the keys to the boxes made sure that the knowable was kept from the unknown in the minds of her children most of all The children play discover and grow up during ueen Victoria s reign and the adults by and large are creating in one way or another At the end of this era several of the characters travel to France to attend the Grande Exposition Universelle de Paris of 1900 Chapters 21 23 are devoted to this event and there are wonderful descriptions of it In addition there are many references to art and literature as well as discussions about events and politics of that time The good times continue in Edwardian times and during this period many real life authors wrote children s stories which are referenced here Some of the children read Kenneth Grahame s The Golden Age The children of the families in this novel become adults and find their own paths in life These young people have to deal and come to terms with their own problems and tragedies The Golden Age has faded away and strikes assassinations violent protests and wanton destruction become the order of the day By the Age

has life than the real much but it is the artist who gives the figures life says one of the characters in the book about a particular artwork but I think that this uote may be applied to the novel as a whole And so straight to my favourites 2020 shelf I was writing the review as I read adding deleting scrapping as I wrote reminding me of Olive writing and rewriting her children s stories in

Summary ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ A.S. Byatt

Free read The Children's Book ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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 guer Three 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 ambitious a monster of book filled to bursting point with detail Clothing meals parties modes of transport and works of art are minutely described Historical characters share the stage with fictional ones an aging Oscar Wilde is seen at the Paris Exhibition in 1900 Rupert Brooke attends Fabian summer camp the characters go to an early performance of JM Barrie s Peter Pan Marie Stopes is met when she is studying in Germany Byatt painstakingly recreates the late Victorian and the Edwardian period as she explores the lives of a small segment of the population artists free thinkers and intellectuals I might have enjoyed the work less if I had known about the time period in which it s set and the subjects with which it deals As it is I knew virtually nothing and learned a great deal Listening to the novel felt like taking an immersion course in the social history of the period leading up to and including World War I However as interesting as I found the world of the novel the wealth of detail is also its major weakness At times it felt like Byatt had dumped the entire contents of her filing cabinet into the book it was as if she couldn t bear to leave out a single detail no matter how insignificant to the narrative This makes the work somewhat unwieldy and overblown On the other hand it also makes it closer to the style of a Victorian novel which I assume is what Byatt was aiming to achieve The audiobook was beautifully narrated by Nicolette McKenzie who found the perfect voice for each of the characters This could not have been easy to do given the large cast of characters and the fact that a significant number of them are much the same age I was very glad that I listened to rather than read this book The narration really brought the characters alive I ve been undecided whether to give the book 4 or 5 stars The fact that I didn t want it to end would generally put a book into the amazing category However I m also aware that it s a flawed work which could have been perfect with just a little discipline So I ll settle on 4 12 stars for now That may go up to 5 if I m still thinking about the characters a week or two from now Edited on 1 December 2012 Well a week on and I am still thinking about the characters and missing the world of the novel I ve amended the rating to 5 stars
