Nemesis AUTHOR Philip Roth Read & Download ☆ 4 Set in a Newark neighborhood during a terrifying polio outbreak Nemesis is a wrenching examination of the forces of circumstance on our lives Bucky Cantor is a vigorous dutiful twenty three year old playground director during the summer of 1944 A javelin thrower and weightlifter he is disappointed wi. Das Buch hat mir super gefallen wie auch schon andere geschrieben haben schafft Roth es sehr gut einem den Eindruck der damaligen Zeit zu vermitteln und die Machtlosigkeit dieser Krankheit Polio die heute in den meisten Teilen der Welt kein Problem mehr darstellt im Jahre 1944 aber noch ein gro es Problem war da es keine Medizin gab gegen ber darzustellenBesonders interessant finde ich wie er im letzten Teil die Erz hlerfigur inhaltlich zum Leben erweckt die sich anfangs im Buch nur kurz zu erkennen gibt Diese stilistische Entscheidung finde ich sehr gut gew hlt und gibt dem Buch dadurch im letzten Teil noch das Besondere EtwasAm ehesten negativ erw hnen k nnte ich dass die erste H lfte des Buches im Vergleich zum zweiten Teil f r mich etwas zu detailiert wirkt

Philip Roth ✓ 4 Summary

Nemesis AUTHOR Philip Roth Read & Download ☆ 4 The streets of Newark and a pristine summer camp high in the Poconos Nemesis tenderly and startlingly depicts Cantors passage into personal disaster the condition of childhood and the painful effect that the wartime polio epidemic has on a closely knit family oriented Newark community and its childr. This is Roth s last novel Many years ago I enjoyed Portnoy s Complaint and Goodbye Columbus but recently I found The Plot Against America and Sabbath s Theatre overblown too long not particularly enjoyable When Roth died in May this year I decided to read Nemesis his last reasonably short novel which won the 2011 International Man Booker and garnered much praiseIn the summer of 1944 against the backdrop of the closing stages of WWII a fictional polio epidemic terrorises a Jewish neighbourhood of Newark New Jersey and challenges playground director Bucky Cantor both emotionally and morally I really wanted it to be good but sadly it wasn t The first section in Newark itself is promising and I was looking forward to the perfectly proportioned Greek tragedy promised by one of the reviewers But the second section when Bucky leaves the city for a summer camp where his fianc e is working grinds to a repetitious sentimental halt for a long while It was obvious what nasty thing was going to happen and I became impatient waiting for it for 80 pages A lengthy section on an Indian ceremony at the camp was very dull indeed screaming author research Eventually the nasty thing did happen but the novel never picked up for me again Both Bucky and the narrator Arnie one of the boys at the city playground and Bucky s love interest Marcia became author constructs rather than realised characters Bucky and Arnie years later engage in rather facile theological debate mouthpieces for the author s not very profound views The last few pages intended to be poignant were a bit laughable Arnie remembers Bucky giving a lesson on how to throw the javelin He limbered up for 20 minutes then let out a strangulated yowl expressing the essence of him the naked battle cry of striving excellence as he throws the only javelin they have again and again and perfectly Not only is this nothing like the Bucky we thought we knew in the earlier story but real boys would have sniggered at his macho posturing and fidgeted to be given a go themselves Instead these unreal fictional boys stand in awe We had left the little story of the neighbourhood and entered the historical saga of our ancient gender What overblown guff and uncomfortably reminiscent of the Hitler youth movement Is that intended If so it needs to be clearer The last words are Releasing the javelin like an explosion he seemed to us invincible Does Roth approve or disapprove of Bucky the unlikely superman who meets his nemesis The message is unclear and I had stopped caring as the characters had lost all authenticity Next I m going to reread Roth s debut novella Goodbye Columbus to see how he started out I m not surprised he laid down his pen after Nemesis despite the dutiful adulation it received
