商品の説明

内容紹介

Look Homeward, Angel is an elaborate and moving coming-of-age story about Eugene Gant, a restless and energetic character whose passion to experience life takes him from his small, rural hometown in North Carolina to Harvard University and the city of Boston. The novel's pattern is artfully simple -- a small town, a large family, high school and college -- yet the characters are monumental in their graphic individuality and personality.

Through his rich, ornate prose, Wolfe evokes the extraordinarily vivid family of the Gants, and with equal detail, the remarkable peculiarities of small-town life and the pain and upheaval of a boy who must leave both. A classic work of American literature, Look Homeward, Angel is a passionate, stirring, and unforgettable novel.

5つ星のうち 4.0 epic autobiographical novel is of course an American classic that has influenced other great free thinking American writers 2016/3/30
投稿者 Buenvino - (Amazon.com)

This massive, epic autobiographical novel is of course an American classic that has influenced other great free thinking American writers. But about 100 years since its publication, the trials and tribulations of Wolfe's tough childhood in Asheville, NC, often tend to meander and verge on the surreal, making this a real challenge for less patient or discerning readers.

It therefore comes as no surprise that a film is about to be released (2016) about Wolfe's relationship with the great publishing editor who tackled one of Wolfe's later offerings, a million words long!.

Most of Look Homeward, Angel is hugely entertaining as Wolfe brings his extended family and the whole of 1900s Asheville to glorious life, with especial attention to warts and all. No wonder that, after the books publication, he could not return to the town for years. As his genius and thirst for knowledge developed - including an insatiable need for books, he literally outgrew (6' 6") all around him, having to overcome crippling shyness and humilation - his time at UNC in Chapel Hill was also a rite of passage.

This is the first book I have read anything on Kindle and I had the privilege of reading it in Asheville and Chapel Hill. Mastering Kindle's note taking or bookmark systems takes time, but in the end they worked well. It's great access gems from the tome whenever I want.

5つ星のうち 5.0 And October Came Again 2015/8/13
投稿者 Natalie Simpspndach - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
What can one say about Thomas Wolfe, brilliant, tormented, unlucky, always running from those who loved him. Fell in love with women who did not love him. He was unable to sleep most nights so he wondered the streets looking always looking for something to explain his life to himself. A genius who never found peace in this life. He had very little order or discipline in his work. The book is filled with dark and beautiful description of everything around him. I will never see fall the same way as I did before I read this novel.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Unsurpassed American Novelist 2015/9/22

Thomas Wolfe, where have you been all my life? Hands down the best American writer of all time. I am in awe of how he captures in language the internal human experiences that I thought could never be shared. I cannot stop reading his works. It's a tragedy that he died so young.

5つ星のうち 5.0 An old-fashioned treat 2014/3/9
投稿者 Cheri Walton - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I first fell in love with Thomas Wolf forty years ago, when I was in school. Since then I have read hundreds of books, but have rarely remembered any of them as well as I remember "Look Homeward Angel." I decided to re-read it as a gift To myself, and was not in the least disappointed. It was like having a five course meal instead of a snack. When authos like Hemingway introduced writing that was sparse and direct, authors like Thomas Wolfe gradually went out of fashion. More and more people wanted clean, clear language. However, I enjoyed the poetry of Wolf's writing, which focuses not so much on WHAT happened as how what happened is described. One reads this book to wallow in language rather than plot. The author is present in every sentence, his heartfelt descriptions of people, places and events. We watch, rather than identify. This book is rich, perhaps too rich for today's tastes. But it's nice to indulge once in awhile.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Nothing else I have read even comes close. 2014/5/17

William Faulkner said that Thomas Wolfe was probably the greatest writer of his (Faulkner's) time. This book is a
feast for the mind. Though provincial in topic, its scope is universal. The pathos of the Gant family of Altamont is
a microcosm of the human family experience, warts and all. The haunting refrain of "O lost and by the wind grieved,
come back again", entreats the soul to a reverie of a world that will not come again. FCH
