Very Heaven - Richard Aldington - كتب Google
Sorry Not Sorry Naya Rivera. The Bright Hour Nina Riggs. Rating details. The theme seemed less urgent, but with extraneous geographies the author provided several feasts for the eye. He had not been a member of the Imagist group for nothing. Yet to those who see Mr. Aldington as a creative intelligence educating itself everywhere, but always applying itself to specifically English problems, those passages seemed also to imply a lapse back to the Pre-Raphaelitism of his early work before adolescent sentiment was changed by the war to angry indignation. What they wanted to see was not a lapse back from angry indignation, but progress on from it to the unangry discrimination of maturity.
Letting oneself get angry with native stupidity is, in literature as in life, simply waste of time.
But to be young is very heaven
There are only two ways of dealing with it: to run away from it and to use one's wits to circumvent it. Voltaire , who, philosophically, is Mr. Aldington 's master, employed both methods so effectively that his life remains one of the most inspiring comedies of history. With Women Must Work , Mr. Aldington returned to England , but only to the England of the "Nineteen Twenties.
Aldington seized on many essential elements in the English scene during the period, but it would be almost impossible for him to get it all in focus, and the effect was oddly tentative. Very Heaven , however, is much more than a tragi-comedy of period manners. Here, Mr. Aldington has completely recovered from his relapse into Pre-Raphaelitism and rediscovered his master. We get no nearer than Portugal to the now somewhat lurid and rather battered romance of mare nostrum , and to Portugal only for a page or two.
Chris Heylin , like Voltaire's hero , digs in his own garden. What he digs for is a set of values that will enable him to meet the changed circumstances of post-slump England. He finds them in the end, but not without coming face to face with some of the commonplace but terrifying tragedies caused by the dishonesties of social life as at present organized. The characters, however, exist rather as types of organized society than as creatures of the author's imagination.
