Titus Groan / Gormenghast / Titus Alone Read & Download ß 108 Th of roofs and turrets cloisters and corridors stairwells and dungeons it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age old rituals a world primed to implode ben. The world is divided in two parts the domain of ugliness and the realm of beauty the morass of useless and stale traditions and the enigmatic and enticing life on the land outside And the lonely boy Titus Groan the heir of the monstrously huge castle of Gormenghast must grow up and fight the lethargic deadly inertia and crush fatal cosmic evil surrounding himAnd the language of the saga is a creation of an unadulterated wizardryIt gave Mr Flay what he imagined must be pleasure He was discovering and in this new and strange existence this vastness so far removed from corridors and halls burned libraries and humid kitchens that gave rise in him to a new sensation this interest in phenomena beyond ritual and obedience something which he hoped was not heretical in him the multiformity of the plants and the varying textures in the barks of trees the varieties of fish and bird and stone It was not in his temperament to react excitedly to beauty for as such it had never occurred to him It was not in him to think in terms His pleasure was of a dour and practical breed and yet not altogether When a shaft of light fell across a dark area his eyes would turn to the sky to discover the rift through which the rays had broken Then they would return with a sense of accomplishment to the play of the beamsWhen we grow up we pass the point of no return so there is no way for us to come back to the serene and cozy world of our childhood The Gormenghast is an ultimate coming of age tale a real Armageddon of good and evil and it is one of the best and most original books of the twentieth century

Titus Groan / Gormenghast / Titus Alone Read & Download ß 108 This is an alternate cover edition for ISBN13 9780099288893 Gormenghast is the vast crumbling castle to which the seventy seventh Earl Titus Groan is Lord and heir Gothic labyrin. I know of no author in all of the English language who is like Peake or who could aspire to be like him His voice is as uniue as that of Milton Bierce Conrad Blake Donne or Eliot and as fully realized I am a hard and critical man cynical and not easily moved but there are passages in the Gormenghast series which so shocked me by the force of their beauty that I snap the book shut overwhelmed with wonderment and take a moment to catch my breathI would drop my head My eyes would search the air as if I could find there the conclusion I was seeking My brow would crease in something like despondency or desperation and then of its own accord a smile would break across my face and I would shake my head slowly and laugh and sigh And laughPeake s writing is not easy fare I often needed room to breathe and time for contemplation but he is not inaccessible nor arduous He does not like Joyce or Eliot reuire the reader to know the history of western literature in order to understand him His story is deceptively simple it is the world in which he sets it that can be so overwhelmingPeake writes with a painter s eye which is natural enough as he is famous as an illustrator than a writer the only self portrait in the National Portrait Gallery He paints each scene each moment in such careful loving playful detail that it can only be described by the original definition of sublime a vista which is so grand and beautiful that it dwarfs our humanity evoking a wonder akin to fearBut Peake s writing is not so entirely alienating on the contrary he is vividly concerned with life Gormenghast is the story of a life starting at birth though our hero only got as far as the cusp of manhood before Peake was seized by malady and death Each character is brightly and grotesuely alive The fantasy of this book is not like so many epics magic signifying moral conflict The magic of Peake s world is the absurdly perfect figures that people itThey are stylized and symbolic but like Gogol Peake is working off of his own system of symbology instead of relying on the staid familiar archetypes of literature Unusual as they may be there is a recognizable verisimilitude in the madness imbued in each Their obsessions uirks and unpredictability feel all too human They are frail mad and surprisingLike the wild characters of his sketches Peake writes in exaggerated strokes but somehow that makes them recognizable realistic and memorable than the unadorned reality of post modernists Since truth is stranger than fiction only off kilter unhinged worlds will seem real as Peake s does This focus on fantastical characters instead of fantastical powers has been wryly dubbed Mannerpunk or a Fantasy of Manners It is a much enveloping and convincing type of fantasy since it engages the mind directly with visceral artistic techniues instead of relying on a threadbare language of symbolic power Peake does not want to explain the world but paint itTolkien can certainly be impressive in his way but after reading Peake it is difficult to call him fantastical His archetypal characters age old moral conflict and epic plot all seem so hidebound against the wild bulwark of Peake s imagination The world of Gormenghast is magical and dreamlike without even needing to resort to the parlor tricks of spells wizards and monstersPeake s people are fantastical than dragons because their beings are instilled with a shifting and scintillating transience Most dragons fearsome as they may be on the outside are inwardly little than plot movers Their fearful might is drawn from a recognizable tradition and I uestion how fantastical something can really be when its form and behavior are so familiar to usLikewise Peake s world though made up of things recognizable is twisted enchanted and made uncanny without ever needing to stretch our disbelief We have all experienced wonder confusion and revelation at the world so why do authors think that making it less real will make it wonderful What is truly fantastical is to find magic in our own world and in our own livesBut then it is not an easy thing to do Authors write in forms cliches archetypes and moral arguments because it gives them something to work with a place to start and a way to measure their progress lest they lose themselves To write unfettered is vastly difficult and reuires either great boldness or great naivetePeake is ever bold You will never catch him flat footed his pen is ever moving He drives on in sallies and skirmishes teasing prodding suggesting and always in the end he is a uantum presence evading our cumbersome attempts to catch him in any one place Each sentence bears a thought a purpose a consciousness The only thing keeping the book moving is the restless joy of Peake s wit his love and passion for his book its places characters and storyHe also has a love for writing and for the word which is clear on every page A dabbler in poetry his careful sense of meter is masterful as precise as Bierce And unlike most fantasists Peake s poetry is often the best part of his books instead of the least palatable Even absent his amusing characterization and palpable world his pure language is a thing to beholdIn the introduction uentin Crisp tells us about the nature of the iconoclast that being different is not a matter of avoiding and rejecting what others do that is merely contrariness not creativity To be original means finding an inspiration that is your own and following it through to the bitter endPeake does that here maintaining a depth pace and uality that is almost unbelievable He makes the book his own and each time he succeeds in lulling us into familiarity we can be sure that it is a playful ruse and soon he will shake free againAlas not all readers will be able to keep up with him Those desiring repetition comfort and predictability will instead receive shock betrayal and confusion However for those who love words who seek beauty who relish the
