    PDF Walker Percy ó Lancelot MOBI à ó lancelot book, Lancelot EpubUnderstated yet altogether profound Lancelot's story is retold entirely within his disturbed mind from a single room in an institution with but one window through which he can glimpse a fragment of his past life The writing is absolutely beautiful and not the least pretentious The retelling of his past will make you feel uneasy but oddly will make you laugh along the way Confronts racial issues marked by the era with uncanny deliberateness and marital familial strife as the main character directly experienced it He's crazy and while you'll get a sense of this Percy undoubtedly maintains an elusive and enigmatic uality It is a story of the past told from the beginning chronologically leaving you in anticipation and yearning for information But when the story is finally told you have a satisfying and complete picture He conveys Lancelot's character in an implicit manner and elucidates truths to his identity that perhaps the

    PDF Walker Percy ó Lancelot MOBI à ó lancelot book, Lancelot EpubLess of a novel and of a jeremiad and a jeremiad true now 35 years after Percy penned it than it was originally While its main thrust is the problematics of a culture whose sine ua non is pleasure it is also a fascinating investigation of how we create identities for others and how we in turn willingly and cheerfully embrace those identities created for us as a part of our obsession with the various forms of pleasure with how history functions in our lives with how we misuse and misinterpret history using it to insulate ourselves from reality and how we should use his

    PDF Walker Percy ó Lancelot MOBI à ó lancelot book, Lancelot EpubFirst a note of caution this book is very explicit in its language and subject matter and may understandably be too much for some in that regard Coming on the heels of Love in The Ruins this book approaches similar issues from a completely different angle The plot unfolds uietly and ominously all the while exploring how the protagonists inability to find meaning in the ordinary occurrences

    PDF Walker Percy ó Lancelot MOBI à ó lancelot book, Lancelot EpubI loved this book Percy continues diagnosing the modern malaise here through the eyes of a man that snapped out of his malaise through a single event The man now institutionalized recounts the events of that lead to where he is as he also rants and raves about the status of his life before and what the future holds There are points where Percy's own views come through the speaker in the story but there are also points where the speaker just raves lunacy the break between Percy's own views and the speaker's is clear because percy is catholic and the speaker is somewhat hostile to relgion and faith The story is often tense and the narrative structure is uniue

    PDF Walker Percy ó Lancelot MOBI à ó lancelot book, Lancelot EpubRead this one for Sawyers Book Club on myspace and becuase it is on the Lost Lit ListI like the format narrator speaks to reader as tho they are part of the story one sided conversation I did not like all the lost trains of thought The narrator would lead you towards an answer or explanation and then veer off for pages and pages almost seeming to have lost his orginal point I did not like the ending at all Perhaps my copy is missing the last few pages?? sadly i know this is not the case

    PDF Walker Percy ó Lancelot MOBI à ó lancelot book, Lancelot EpubThe structure of this novel reminds me of the movie Amadeus There's no one here analogous to Mozart but nevertheless a crime has been committed and like Salieri in the film the man who felt driven to do it is now sorting out the meaning of it all while addressing a silent priest like figureAs such this becomes a meditation on good and evil on what matters and what does not and it covers material that Percy handles in his other novels Essentially a character awakens to find himself in degenerate circumstances and considers the choices before himI'm trying to read all his books again roughly 30 years after the first pass in order to get them straight in my mind and understand their common ground This one
