First published in 1960, The Violent Bear It Away is now a landmark in American literature. It is a dark and absorbing example of the Gothic sensibility and bracing satirical voice that are united in Flannery O'Conner's work. In it, the orphaned Francis Marion Tarwater and his cousins, the schoolteacher Rayber, defy the prophecy of their dead uncle--that Tarwater will become a prophet and will baptize Rayber's young son, Bishop. A series of struggles ensues: Tarwater fights an internal battle against his innate faith and the voices calling him to be a prophet while Rayber tries to draw Tarwater into a more "reasonable" modern world. Both wrestle with the legacy of their dead relatives and lay claim to Bishop's soul. O'Connor observes all this with an astonishing combination of irony and compassion, humor and pathos. The result is a novel whose range and depth reveal a brilliant and innovative writers acutely alert to where the sacred lives and to where it does not.… (lisätietoja)

I've just completed The Violent Bear It Away. I love southern gothic and I loved this. It is such an arresting snapshot of rural southern life in the time period.

Like everything of hers I've read, this has a strong religious overtone. I found the debate among how to raise a child to be religious quite overbearing which I suspect is the point. When this is what life is like -- very nearly a Levianthanesque nasty, brutish and short -- religious matters take on a different sheen. Even for minor characters this is true. I don't think I'll ever forget how O'Connor paints the eleven year old forced into worldwide evangelism by her parents.

Something that caught my eye in this novel which is quite different from others of the genre and time period (at least what I've read) is gender roles. Quite contrary to typical portrayals, this novel has multiple women who are actively disinterested in motherhood, even abandoning their children outright, and multiple men who take on extensive caregiving responsibilities. This is partially out of a sense of religious obligation to raise and baptize the children (baptism being a big topic in this book) but also has an emotional component not often conveyed for male characters in father figure roles at the time.

Highly recommended for those who enjoy reading American literature for sure. It's clear why O'Connor has the role she does in the canon for such a short bibliography. ( )

O'Connor is like a really cranky Tolstoy: great with the psychology, great with the symbolism and the narrative ironies, and fabulous with ideas. But not always so great with the prose. If only an editor had gone through and cut out all those terrible analogies.

Otherwise, there's not much to say. This is wonderful stuff, an example of how one can write with the restrictions of an uneducated, not particularly intelligent person's voice, and do it well. Compare, I regret to say, Marilynne Robinson's Lila, which didn't manage it anywhere near as well. ( )

Reads very much like Wharton but with religion as its theme rather than morality. Stark, grim and dark all the way through, a great caution for anyone involved in religion. A perfect portrayal of humanity.

Peopled with characters beset by insecurities and contradictions, many people won’t like this but will have to admit that to how it resonates with reality; life is, after all, mostly grim so…

I liked the fact that the religion gave those who followed it no redemption. That can only come in Christ, not something that humanity might spawn from his teachings. I appreciated the fact that all the characters were somehow handicapped even though only one is so in the way normally ascribed that adjective.

If there’s one flaw in this short and easy-to-read tale, it’s that it holds no hope. At the most, it’s a pointer as to what to avoid if you don’t want to be abandoned by hope, and for that it’s worth a read.

O’Connor died at the age of only 39 and it is testament to the quality of her writing that pretty much everything published in her short life and some posthumously is included on the 1001 books list. I’m looking forward to more of her. ( )

Populated with religious lunatics, and spiritual eunuchs; naturally I loved it.

However, it's been four years, and I'm still hesitant to read more from O'Connor; I don't trust her motivations.

Francis Marion Tarwater's uncle had been dead for only half a day when the boy got too drunk to finish digging his grave and a Negro named Buford Munson, who had come to get a jug filled, had to finish it and drag the body from the breakfast table where it was still sitting and bury it in a decent and Christian way, with the sign of its Saviour at the head of the grave and enough dirt on top to keep the dogs from digging it up.

He kept himself upright on a very narrow line between madness and emptiness, and when the time came for him to lose his balance, he intended to lurch toward emptiness and fall on the side of his choice.
