SUMMARY Ê Artful By Ali Smith Of lectures about art and literature Ali Smith’s heady powers as a novelist and short story writer harmonize with her keen perceptions as a reader and critic to form a living thing that reminds us that life and art are never separate. A rather odd book fusing notes from a series of lectures on the arts that the author gave at Oxford with a meditation on grieving for a lost partnerI wondered why the author chose to render this book as a work of fiction Why not present the lectures in their final form for us to digest As they are the individual subjects hit chords that resonate but are not presented as a cohesive whole The dead arts professor a proxy for Smith I take it is memorialized by the narrator lover who is a botanist by trade and an amateur literateur who can only manage to read Oliver Twist throughout the course of this novel A sort of an ego boost for Smith by Smith I think At points the narrative gets a bit corny when the narrator starts to see the dead lover in ghostly form smell and all and the smell intensifies as time passes What finally turned me off the fictional element was when the narrator or the ghost starts stealing things from other people The narrator subseuently seeks help for her kleptomaniacal activity which is likened to a form of grieving by her shrinkThe content of the lectures themselves are interesting time form edges offer and reflection are dissected into their various dimensions and meanings with elegant word play Some points stuck with me Form is clear rules and unspoken understandings The mirror is a reflection between our world and another The multiple dimensions of time and the multiple meanings of the word form On edge and being on edge the best way to illustrate each other Edges are extremes and borders Love is an exchange of altruism vs selfishnessIn the course of the lectures we get either passing references or detailed analyses of the literary greats and their works Dickens Proust Saramago Kafka Borges Woolf Ondaatje Calvino Atwood Angela Carter and Katherine Mansfield to name a few Painters like Cezanne and Dali and movie makers like Hitchcock with his recipe for suspense are also on offer Writers like Woolf who struggled at a time when cinema was coming of age and threatening to topple books from their perch had much to say about the new medium and its divergence from the written word We can see life on the screen to a deeper level when we have no part in it part observation part condemnation Anecdotes are plentiful eg Dali was trapped in a diving suit nearly dying of suffocation when he dressed in one to illustrate how he was going to be diving into the depths of human subconscious And the poetry selected and explained is comprised of very powerful pieces And like the narrator who is hooked on Dickens the dead lover was also hooked on a now dead Brazilian Marilyn Monroe look alike actress Aliki Vougiouklaki who played every juicy female lead part in the movies in her country Aliki gets to adorn the cover of this book There is lot to keep the art enthusiast engaged But I wondered why this form was chosen to present the work Was there a need for experimentation was there a need for validation was there a need to extend the material in the lectures to a wider audience beyond Oxford Perhaps all three are in play here

CHARACTERS Artful By Ali Smith

SUMMARY Ê Artful By Ali Smith “A stimulating combination of literary criticism essay and fiction” The New Yorker from the incomparable Ali Smith Artful is a celebration of literature’s worth in and to the world it is about the things art can do the things art. All of it I sayLucky for you the ands are ampersands you sayYou are calling my bluff of course I call yours back I take the book to the tattoo parlour down Mill Road and come home after several sessions with exactly this tattoo I choose to have it done in deep blue the colour of your eyes It costs me a fortune It hurts like ironyI see you again only when it s finished and my skin settled downYou re unreal you say when you see itYou re the real unreal thing all rightLess than a month after this we move in together and mix our books up I love this book Artful is the product of four lectures Smith gave and combines a background story of coming to terms with death with a literary exploration of themes that deal with elements of grieving time fragmentation etc Of course Smith delivers all of this in a discourse that is both full of wit and tenderness I m not sure whether I love this book because of the way that Smith delivers the lectures or the selections of poetry and books she includes In any case this is one of the books that I will read again and again
