Summary Saratoga Trunk Perennial Classics

Saratoga Trunk Perennial Classics Download ¿ 104 From Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Edna Ferber called the “the greatest American woman novelist of her day” New York Times comes a mesmerizing and timeless saga of love greed and powerSaratoga Trunk unfolds the story of Clio Dulaine an. I ve said it before and I ll say it again Edna Ferber is a hidden literary gem If you were born in the 70 s or after you d probably never heard of her growing up I happened upon her by chance My mother and I were flipping through TV channels and she stopped on a scene from Giant I m of a reader than a watcher so I went to the library got the book and have been eating up Ferber s words ever sinceWhy is this author not talked about This woman not only knows how to tell a great moving story and construct a beautiful sentence she also creates these characters that are just so fun and real I absolutely adored Clio Dulaine from the beginning It was impossible not to love her or any of Ferber s heroinesFerber s female characters uietly exude strength independence and tenacity They go against the convention of their day and Ferber s but not in a way that s at all obnoxious You are always rooting for them I also enjoy the men in her stories They re likeable but definitely must delicately walk around their female counterparts even when they are booming and brashThis is the fourth novel I ve read by this author and I would highly recommend any of them So Big was my favorite though

Saratoga Trunk Perennial Classics Download ¿ 104 Ll they've ever wanted they fail to realize they already have all they'll ever need each otherAn unforgettable tale of ambition class differences and love Saratoga Trunk was the basis for the classic film starring Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergma. Solid 4 stars out of 5 for me For the benefit of all my reading friends you may interpret this as a 3I know that sounds strange but I loved this bookand I don t think everyone wouldHere s the thing and I had heard this before I read it and didn t want to believe it It IS dated It does not stand with her other great books in the same way Edna Ferber is never profound like sayEdith Wharton What she IS is a uintessential American writer that chooses a big canvas and setting to display her themes Her works have a strong sociological basis She never wrote a line except to please herself and that is how true artists approach their subjects And in this book the strengths are the unfailing sense of drama the beliefs the people she uses to tell her story and the meticulous background details It s all very entertainingOkayso the dated issues1 One of the main thrusts of this book is how the industrial barons of the 1880s plundered the country and basically stole it from its citizens That part holds true What doesn t hold true is that the main characters assert at the end of the novel that this time has passed and that we now live in a true democracy where this kind of oligarchy cannot happen All we have to do is look at Washington DC to see that this not the case Her optimism feels out of step with reality in this sense2 There is a very offensive scene at the very end where a character dons blackface at an ultra chic ballroom scene It s supposed to be offensive to all the ball goers and it isbut for us today it is offensive in a different way I generally overlook this type of thing in novels and pay attention to the time it was written Does it make it right No it doesn tand it will definitely bother many readers today But here is my opinion on this type of thing You really can t hold people responsible for knowledge they don t have That is like saying Well for heavens sake why didn t all those geniuses of the Renaissance invent electricity so we could all use it They didn t have the knowledge It is my firm belief that you have to read in context of the time it was written Hello The Holy Bible Neverthelessthis scene whatever you think about it DOES date the bookI loved so many things about this though I literally felt transported to another time and at the moment I need a little escapism There is a lot of humor here The characters are all wonderfully flawed and wonderfully admirable The plot moves along uickly with no dissertations I took a long time reading this one Not because I was bored or found it lacking in any way uite the opposite I wanted it to last a long timeNow I m going to read the only one of hers that I haven t Cimarron
