Arundhati Roy Á 4 Summary

Read The God of Small Things Arundhati Roy Á 4 Summary The God of Small Things Summary ¹ 104 India fine anni Sessanta Amnu figlia di un alto funzionario lascia il marito alcolizzato e violento per tornarsene a casa con i suoi due bambini Ma secondo la tradizione indi. Okay first things first The God Of Small Things is a very very clever book but what makes it exceptional is that it is both beautiful and crafty a rare combination This book has structure Lots of it She effectively creates a language of her own a juvenile lucid language which complements the wistful mood of the book beautifully The plot moves around in space and time with masterful ease and one can t help but experience a vague sense of foreboding a prickly fear in the back of your neckFrom what could have been just another tragic incident Arundhati Roy weaves a poignant story about the loss of innocence and the far reaching devastation caused in the aftermath of one tragic event She examines every character with a genuine warmth their motivations insecurities and most importantly their unfulfilled dreams the definitive universal human tragedy The secret of being a bore is to tell everything Voltaire said This book is an appropriate example of how true that adage is Like a loving mother with only one piece of pie she withholds information and doles it out at the most opportune moments yet never does the plot become incomprehensible In fact we lap it all up and can t wait for the next serving To even attempt to summarize the plot would be to take everything away from it because well surprise the book really is about the Small Things And the Really Big Things On one level the book is about freespirited Ammu our very own Madame Bovary It s about Rahel and Estha Ammu s twin children their innocent childhood infringements and the soarings and stiflings of their little hearts their complex entwined lives which are governed by the Love Laws that lay down who should be loved And how And how much And how long On another level it s about the idea of men being social constructs About our lives not really being in our hands About our lives really being governed by the forces of the invisible big bad things a sadistic child holding a horshoe magnet to the disparate iron filings of our small insiginificant lives In short a History lesson A lesson in Indian caste dynamics and the communist movement of Kerala About how the Really Big Things often seep into the Small Things like tea from a teabag What hurts the most is not the intensity of the characters suffering but the fact that it is extremely commonplace their suffering like labour pains like the food chain An Indian food chain tragedy based on caste and other offerings History left behind in it s wake It demonstrates how all caste based violence is ecological based on fear the strange fear the powerful have for the powerless Us and themAt the end of it what I got from the book I think was that though the Really Big Things might be really fucked up most of the times the Small Things than make up for it Really

Please excuse me while I go sit in this corner and be dreadfully underwhelmed The God of Small Things won the Booker Prize in 1997 and I d heard very good things about it And yet I really didn t like it It s not a bad book far from it The characters she has created are really wonderful and she has succeeded in evoking all the noises and sights and smells of Kerala even for someone like me who s never been further east than Poland The narrative structure is disjointed wandering from the now to 1969 and back again but I never found myself getting confused by itThe language use is inventive and creative and original there were times when I found myself pausing to read back over a particular metaphor or simile because it was just that beautiful or thought provoking But the further I read into the book the strained the language seemed It seems to be teetering and from the wonderfully ornate to a kind of thing that reminds me of Victorian architecture all curlicues and flourishes and bilious cherubs and buildings that look like gigantic overdone wedding cakes It s too much all at once overwhelming the eye and leaving me feeling faintly sea sickI don t like the tone she takes in parts of it either especially when she s talking about human nature or history or the caste system Not that I don t agree with a lot of what she says I do but she s too didactic I think it s her tendency to put every line in a new paragraph in these sections A subtle hand will always serve you better I think
