Assuming that The Black Prince is a fair representation of Iris Murdoch s work I think its unlikely I ll read any of her booksThat s not to say she s a poor author nor is it to suggest I didn t like The Black Prince She is a fine author and I liked The Black Prince well enough But my experience with this book and what that means to my future engagement with Murdoch s novels is a bit like my experience with swimming laps in the local pool without a loftier purpose neither is worth the effortI love swimming I really do And I like how I feel after I ve gotten back into the routine of swimming But I have to make time get ready get to the pool put in the effort to swim those laps stress out my lungs feel the ache in my muscles the next day and work on staying motivated despite my enjoyment Yet I get just as much enjoyment out of sitting on my sofa watching a rerun of Match Game which takes no effort at all and much enjoyment out of swimming biking and running with a sprint triathlon as the end goal effort but it s effort well spent If Match Game is the literary euivalent of a fun Terry Pratchett novel and triathlon training is the euivalent of Ulysses I ll always avoid the middle ground that The Black Prince fills It s good but the effort really isn t worth the payoffIf I am wrong however and Murdoch s other books are worth the effort I would love to hear a convincing argument and some recommendations because if nothing else this book shows that she is a good author

The Black Prince Read & Download ¼ 104 Free read The Black Prince „Черният принц“ е петнадесетият досега и според мнението на цялата световна литературна критика най сполучливият роман на видната англий. For fans of the author s The Sea The Sea here s a great book that has a similar tone and structure The similarities with The Sea we have a just retired divorced man who has rented an ocean front cottage He has always used women and treated them callously old flames return making theatrical appearances at his door at inopportune times These include his ex and he assumes she wants to get back with him which may or may not be true And just like The Sea we have a murder an attempted murder and a suicide I d say there are three main themes love the experience of falling in love and being in love the pros and cons of marriage and art On love Iris Murdoch made this famous uote Every artist is an unhappy lover And unhappy lovers want to tell their story It s about falling in love with the emphasis on falling It happens to this 58 year old man instantaneously over dinner one night with a woman barely 20 years old a daughter of long time friends of his He is smitten as if he had heart attack The author tells us in an aside that few authors write about the experience of being in love and that is mainly what the story is about The absolute yearning of one human body for another particular one and its indifference to substitutes is one of life s major mysteries On marriage But there is a natural hostility between the married and the unmarried I cannot stand the shows so often uite instinctively put on by married people to insinuate that they are moral than you are Moreover to help their case the unmarried person often naively assumes that all marriages are happy unless shown to be otherwise And People who boast of happy marriages are I submit usually self deceivers if not actually liarsThere is nothing like the bootless solitude of those who are caged together On art our main character worked in a tax office but his real love was literary things he wrote book reviews and one critically acclaimed book He s in a rivalry with another male author He wrote one great book his opinion but his friend bangs one out every year He believes he discovered the other writer so we have this complicated mentorprot g e relationship It revolves around the theme is art supposed to be difficult or fun Other passages I liked One can see many men who live happily possessed and run indeed manned the way a ship is manned by women of tremendous will Of course men play roles but women play roles too blanker ones They have in the play of life fewer good lines written in 1973Do we keep secrets from friends to make ourselves feel superior Is it because To see someone as not in the know is to see them as diminished Those who occasion loss of dignity are hard to forgive One must constantly meditate upon the absurdities of chance a subject even edifying that the subject of death Her eyes were red and swollen with crying and her mouth was rectangular with complaint like the mouth of a letter box you don t know what it s like waking every morning and finding the whole horror of being yourself still there And our lover It ends badly for him of course So badly that at the end someone collects his memoirs and has each of the major characters react to them So we are treated to new twists and turns about what really happened Like The Sea The Sea a great read that I added to my favorites top image from thewordtravelscomlower of London apartments from orchardsoflondoncom

I read this years ago and thought it was hilarious especially when the old prissy geezer was taking the young lovely student he was hopelessly in lurve with to the Opera and was so excited and overwhelmed by the whole inebriating ineffable scrotum bedevilling lurve thing that he vomited all over the row in front Which uite curtailed the passion for that eveningI actually re read this not that long ago and it wasn t uite so side splitting but the vomit scene still brought forth a few chortlesAll the characters in Iris Murdoch s novels are little upper middle class clockwork figurines she winds them up and they rush here and shag and rush there and existentialise and rush there and divorce It s funny and exhausting and you often need a chart But one Iris Murdoch novel is a mustSo it should be this one
