Review Patrick White A Life David Marr â 2 Characters Patrick White A Life Download Û 2 'I think this book should be called The Monster of All Time But I am a monster ' Patrick WhitePatrick White winner of the Nobel Prize and author of than a dozen novels and plays including Voss The Vivisector and The Twyborn Affair lived an extraordinary life David Marr's brilliant biography draws not only on a wide range of original research but. This has been written with an incredible eye to detail in which the greatness of the great author is unveiled slowly through the anecdotal It is a portrait of an artist painted on a backdrop of mundane ordinariness in which the greyness of its routines is shattered by the bright spotlights of White s genius and achievements and made dramatic by the vociferation of those who seemed to resent and loath that genius or wanted to spoon off the cream of his success for themselves Or the screeching of those who uite simply were unable to see the genius when he stood before them Of course the genius of Patrick White is in the text he wrote rather than his life Nevertheless David Marr s description is of a great and generous humanist with a strong character A writer who hated writing An Australian who hated all nationalisms uoting White on this It all starts with the uestion of identity In recent years we have been served up a lot of clap trap about the need for the national identity We have been urged to sing imbecile jingles flex our muscles like the sportsmen from telly commercials and display hearty optimism totally unconvincing because so superficial and unnatural Those who preach this doctrine are usually the kind of chauvinist who is preparing this country not to avert war but to engage in it Anyhow this is not the way to cultivate an Australian identity For one thing we are still in the melting pot a rich but not yet blended stew of disparate nationalities And most of us who were transplanted here generations ago either willingly or unwillingly the white overlords and their slave whites are still uncertain in ourselves Australia will never acuire a national identity until enough individual Australians acuire identities of their ownDavid Marr s biography is so detailed and complex that it has to be a classic the kind of book that readers will want to reread and that when they do reread it it will seem like a new book each time

Review Patrick White A Life David Marr â 2 Characters Patrick White A Life Download Û 2 E central fact of White's life as an artist the homosexuality that formed his view of himself as an outcast and stranger able to penetrate the hearts of both men and women Gracefully written and exhaustively researched Patrick White is a biography of classic excellence sympathetic objective penetrating and as blunt when necessary as White himself. This has been on my shelf for some time and some wise advice was given to me years ago and that was that to appreciate reading the works of Patrick White it can be helpful to first understand the person David Marr has written a loving well researched and fascinating story of Patrick White There is so much in this story from the personal family stories set within the Australia of the colonial years war years and beyond this is truly a broad sweep of Australia s white history scattered with the characters that fill Patrick White s writing I am very lucky to have had such good advice and such an excellent writer who does honour a worthy Nobel Prize winner
