Read & download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Þ Cormac McCarthy Cormac McCarthy Þ 2 Characters Free read ´ The Road É PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free The searing postapocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece A father and his son walk alone through burned America Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind It is cold enough to crack stones and when the snow falls it is gray The sky is dark Their destination is the coast although. I really feel compelled to write up a review of McCarthy s The Road as this book really worked for me for those of you who haven t read it there are no real spoilers below only random uotes and thematic commentary I read it last night in one sitting Hours of almost nonstop reading I found it to be an excellent book on so many levels that I am at a loss as to where to begin It was at once gripping terrifying utterly heart wrenching and completely beautiful I have read most of McCarthy s other books and am already a big fan but this one is different perhaps his best in terms of lean masterful prose plot presentation and flat out brilliant storytellingTake this passage for example The blackness he woke to on those nights was sightless and impenetrable A blackness to hurt your ears with listening Often he had to get up No sound but the wind in the bare blackened trees He rose and stood tottering in that cold autistic dark with his arms outheld for balance while the vestibular calculations in his skull cranked out their reckonings An old chronicle Happy times The word choice and imagery is classic McCarthy yet is leaner and honed tighter and in turn intense The whole book follows this pattern No word not a single one is extraneous This is perhaps my favorite single sentence in the book By day the banished sun circles the earth like a grieving mother with a lamp I just love thatClearly this book struck a chord with me due to the two protagonists and their predicament a father and his young son struggling in a post apocalyptic world To say I could identify with their interactions would be a huge understatement McCarthy absolutely nails their dialog making me marvel at how well he has mastered presenting on a page the way we communicate it isn t exactly how we talk of course it just seems that way Through some sort of magic he writes dialog that comes across realistically than actual dialog Witchcraft for sure The young son was especially well done and was most certainly the most complicated character in the book McCarthy presents him as a sort of supernatural being Christ figure of only the best sort full of goodness a thing not of the world in which he finds himself He is effortlessly drawn down the path of the righteous throughout the book as if he is God s right hand man The reward appears at least superficially to be key moments of luckIt almost wouldn t work from a literary standpoint if it didn t serve so well as a vehicle to reinforce the central theme of the book the undeniable power of love over all else The theme of love mostly presented through the bond of the father and son is so well done as to evoke strong emotions even now as I consider how to present its keen development throughout the novel To be so desperate in every way and at all times and yet to survive and at times thrive to persevere through terrible events of unbelievable horror think Steven King s The Stand on steroids would strike feelings of great sad compassion in even the most tempered soul But it is much than that of course Consider this passage a speaking passage from father to son spoken during one of the most tense and horrifying scenes in the book You wanted to know what the bad guys looked like Now you know It may happen again My job is to take care of you I was appointed to do that by God I will kill anyone who touches you Do you understand In this one passage McCarthy shows the great contradiction in this theme of love the idea that violence and beauty can spring fourth from the same well can come from the same fountainhead Interestingly the father often resorts to violence in his role as a servant of love he sees it as his duty in a religious sense as stated in the uote Yet the boy never does and appears better for it in so many ways even in that terrible place He is the embodiment of pure goodness and sets up the other better side of love the side that is unsullied by the world that never resorts to baseness and violence that finds beauty in even to most unlikely of places Like seeing a picture better when you hold it up to the light the contrasts between these two sides is masterfully provided page after page in only the most well written and considered proseThe often repeated promethean phrase carrying the fire agreed upon by the two protagonists as pretty much the whole point of their continuing embodies this central theme The boy is carrying the fire for us all and is perhaps the most important survivor in that shattered world bearing the torch of love for humanity to share when it is again ready Not to belabor the point but the way McCarthy handles this all the way until the end is nothing short of genius Can you tell I liked the book yet I am amazed that I missed this book for so long me being a huge McCarthy fan and placing him suarely at the top of the big four with DeLillo Roth and Pynchon The book is so it s own that as soon as I felt myself feeling an influence for example I swore I smelled Hemmingway s Old Man and the Sea in terms of prosetheme and the terrifyingly cruel parts at times rang so much like Kosinski s The Painted Bird McCarthy would insert the perfect McCarthyism solidly planting the flag so to speak of a phrase or sentence into the passage to claim it forever for himself like a prosaic explorer figuratively pushing out into the unknown through deft assemblages of words and phases impossible to all but him ok that metaphor was way too muchtime to wrap it up Of course I have to say but am beginning to risk actually have already thoroughly risked repeating myself and sounding like some deranged McCarthy stalker type Check this one out It is superior literature

The view that there are two independent primal forces in the universe one good and one evil is called dualism According to dualism the good God does the best he can to promote good and combat evil but he can only do so much since evil is a powerful counterforce in its own right The ancient Gnostics were dualists with their scriptures emphasizing the mythic rather than the historic and positing our evil world of matter created not by an all powerful God but by a flawed deity called the Demiurge In contrast to the Demiurge the good God of light resides above our earthly material universe in a pure spiritual realm called the PleromaI mention dualism and Gnosticism here since I read in Cormac McCarthy s novel No Country For Old Men the following dialogue between a good old Texas boy by the name of Sheriff Bell and his old Uncle EllisSheriff Bell asks Do you think God knows what s happenin Uncle Ellis replies I expect he does Bell then asks You think he can stop it To this Uncle Ellis answers No I dont By these answers whether he knows it or not Uncle Ellis is expressing Gnostic dualism Of course McCarthy s worldview isn t necessarily the worldview of one of his characters in this case Uncle Ellis but my sense after reading No Country for Old Men McCarthy s worldview isn t that far removed from Gnostic dualism rather the world and society McCarthy creates is absolutely soaking in evil The evil is so strong in this McCarthy novel one could say evil is the primal force of the universeA world where evil is the primal force is given an even complete and deeper expression in McCarthy s post Apocalyptic novel The Road where a man and his son travel south to avoid the oncoming winter cold Why am I saying this Let me offer a couple observations around two uotesWe read a reflection of the man when he was a boy about age thirteen prior to the apocalypse Standing at the edge of a winter field among rough men watching while they opened up the rocky hillside ground with pick and mattock and brought to light a great bolus of serpents perhaps a hundred in number the dull tubes of them beginning to move sluggishly in the cold hard light Like the bowels of some great beast exposed to the day The men poured gasoline on them and burned them alive having no remedy for evil but only for the image of it as they conceived it to be The burning snakes twisted horribly and some crawled burning across the floor of the grotto to illuminate its darker recesses As they were mute there were no screams of pain and the men watched them burn and writhe and blacken in just such silence themselves and they disbanded in silence in the winter dusk each with his own thoughts to go home to their suppers One can only wonder what brought about the actual apocalypse in the novel Perhaps similar to these men world leaders attempted to remedy the image of evil on a macro levelHere is a typical scene the man and boy come upon Beyond a crossroads in that wilderness they began to come upon the possessions of travelers abandoned in the road years ago Boxes and bags Everything melted and black Old plastic suitcases curled shapeless in the heat Here and there the imprint of things wrested out of the tar by scavengers A mile on and they began to come upon the dead Figures half mired in the blacktop clutching themselves mouths howling No uotes are needed as I am sure you get the idea a shadowy menacing ash filled landscape populated by humans hunting and killing and eating one anotherWhat creates the drama in this dark sinister stinking world is the love the man has for the boy his son and the love the boy has for the man his papa Also the compassion the boy has for those they encounter on the road All through their experience on the road can we say the man holds a Gnostic like dualist view He experiences the intensity of the world s evil to be sure However his belief in a Gnostic light realm is paradoxical Sometimes he reflects there is only this evil world of matter harrowing and unrelenting and yet sometimes he recognizes the boy as a messenger come from that otherworldly realm of lightRather than attempting an answer I suggest reading with these ideas of dualism and Gnosticism in mind as one way of contemplating and appreciating the philosophical and theological dimensions of McCarthy s bleak novelCormac McCarthy American novelist and independent spirit par excellence
