Nothing else I guess Eucalyptus lives up to its title It s about a man whose wife dies while giving birth to their daughter The man collects the life insurance moves to a small town in western New South Wales and plants eucalypts lots of them Apparently there are over 200 specie of this plant Once his daughter is of a marriageable age he makes an Atalantan as in the golden applerace myth deal to marry her off to the first suitor who can name all the various eucalypts on his land That process is basically Act II of the book and it s about as exciting as it sounds Oh and each chapter is named for a specie of EucalyptThis was ultimately a very frustrating book I mean I love eucalyptus trees about as much as a kola bear does But we re talking a predictable plodding plot And sexist oh honey it s all that in a way that defies direct implication beautiful inactive freuently naked daughters grotesue obsessive delinuently powerful men arranged marriages little snipes here and there like in speaking of the outback let s not forget the isolation the exhausted shapeless women which as a hiccup might almost appear benign but consolidated turns into this constant goat getting action etc What s truly maddening is that Murray Bail is a capable writer He has a great ear for tone and a masterful ability with sentences Sentences This is the tragedy of the sentence In other words I feel like I m circling a beef with like sentences critically and I suppose it is this when all else fails theme conscience geometry plot as readers we fall back on the sentence If the writer can lay down an inviting sentence we tend toward trust The problem is great sentences have been called on to propound dreadful stuff There s a tangle that results between sentence as sign and sentence as signifier or something along those lines See the Noun Verb Object trick can actually wind up implicating writer and reader both in as far as they become complicit with said sentence s nefarious values I don t know I suppose I m only saying this a series of great sentences cannot be an end in itself somewhere along the line ethics slips in and in the absence of their careful weight even the best grammatical clauses fall to pieces If ya need an example check these Bail isms out It may not be exaggerated to say that the formidable instinct in men to measure which is often mistaken for pessimism is counterbalanced by the unfolding optimism of women which is nothing less than life itself their endless trump card It is shown in miniature by the reverence women have for flowers at its most concentrated when they look up and in recognition of their natural affinity accept flowers Lovely sentences rotten meaningless ideas

After getting a hefty insurance cheue because he wagered his wife would have twins one is still born Holland buys an almost treeless property in western New South Wales His wife has passed away he has only his little girl Ellen He s no farmer He starts planting eucalyptus trees on the farm and it soon turns into a hobby then an obsession Holland son of a baker and a boiled lolly maker becomes a leading expert in the field and has managed to get a specimen of all the species and got them to grow As Ellen grows up she becomes stunningly beautiful her face speckled with freckles moles so that the eye wanders all over She gets and attention from the lads in town until Holland makes a decision The man who can name every tree on the property will win his daughter s hand in marriageSo begins an amusing charade of suitors failing to get past the first few trees up until Mr Cave who names them all Meanwhile an unnamed man courts Ellen amongst the trees with stories woven in and inspired by the names of the different trees and in doing so names them all before Mr CaveThis is a book of stories within stories as well as snippets of information facts history and cultural conundrums One of my favourite stories is about the green grocer in Carlton who makes pictures out of fruit to attract the attention of a pretty but vain woman A lot of the stories have connections to people in the town some made up some maybe not and it s almost like a puzzle to figure them outEllen is a slightly disappointing character almost as if Bail doesn t know how to write female characters or doens t understand them enough to really flesh them out The men were so neatly perfectly described with some simple brush strokes the short comings in Ellen were made noticeable by comparison The ending too was not uite as satisfying as it could have been though it works and fits with the rest of the bookIt is set some time after the Second World War I think in the 40s or 50s though it doesn t actually say and so can get away with the main concept plus some others I don t think this story could be transferred so well into our current time One of the provoking scenes is where Ellen coming upon her only tree E Maidenii she finds a nail driven into the trunk You can guess her feelings there Then she hears Mr Cave and her father approaching and hides only to see them start pissing against the trunk of her tree Great imagery and symbolism thereI love this book regardless of any flaws It will forever be one of my utmost favourites But not everyone gets what I get out of it so I feel the need for a personal kind of contextI never truly appreciated my native country until I started studying some of our literature at uni I did two courses focusing on Australian literature and by the time I graduated for the second time as these things are done there at the end of 2001 I was in hopelessly helplessly head over heels in gut clenching love with the land When the following year I left and went to Japan to teach English for nearly three years I would suddenly smell the shearing shed on my parents farm in the middle of the supermarket My boss tells me whenever I mention smelling something that isn t there that I probably have a brain tumour I call him an alarmist I missed the smell of Australia so much the smell of the land where all the trees the plants the grass the soil has such a distinct smell In Japan nothing smelt which means you can smell 3 day old exhaust fumes the grime coating the walls of buildings the smell of ramen and yakiniku and strangely snow but never the trees or plants because they didn t smell My first cherry blossom time I went up to a tree and sniffed the blossoms expecting the same sweet scent as my mother s specimen in her big beautiful garden Nothing I was supremely disappointedI recommended Eucalyptus to my book club and almost unanimously they agreed on it I hadn t read it in several years but it all came back as I delved in once The trees are my favourite characters Skimming through the reviews on written by Americans mostly I noticed they all said yes it uses trees as a tool to construct the stories but that s not important and trees don t interest me but that s not what this is about I m paraphrasing here don t hit meI beg to differ The trees are everything in Eucalyptus You could almost say it s a book about trees disguised as a fairy tale but I don t think that s the case either The trees figure prominently as characters not as background All the different species described not just visually but with personality too The gum trees are described as selfish offering little shade and unsympathetic After reading that the first time I saw eucalypts in a whole new way In the midlands of Tasmania which you drive through to get to Hobart from the north where my parents farm is you can see a uite uniue oddly disturbing but very memorable scene round hilly very yellow dry farmland bare but for the grey skeletons of eucalypts their silvery arms reaching out like a scarecrow completely leafless As a child this view disturbed me and I still don t know if the Midlands has always been like that or if it is the resutl of excessive farming as in so many other places I suspect the latter In it s own way it is stunning beautiful the stark colours the dead trees still standing like grave markers their branches lined with large crows and magpies and kookaburras The dusty yellow grass like a dry carpet cropped short by sheepThe book is full of beautiful imagery using words to tell multiple layers of a story like bark on a tree I was so surprised and disappointed to find that the people in the bookclub didn t like it and were confused thinking that Australia was just desert They had no idea there were trees bush forest and even grassFor me I can smell Australia when I read this book not just the country but the suburbs of Sydney and other places I am transported home by this book
