There was a problem with your submission. This page was last edited on 29 Juneat Keep Exploring Britannica Bob Dylan. Though I had no idea what the title meant, I found a strong character study of an indecisive man, a flawed character whose weaknesses lead directly to the demise of his best friend. This semiautobiographical novel criticizes the dearth of spiritual values in contemporary society. From a dog falling out of an airplane and splashing two naked lovers on a rooftop with blood, to a grim ride with an injured friend in the mountains of Mexico, the images are vivid, the symbolism striking.
The narrative rotates between 5 or so timelines and flips back to each periodically, like Moloch gleefully dealing Texas Hold’em. Having laid out a complex and unhappy persona, the resolution is too pat and for me unsatisfying.
We are given many chapters to come to dislike this person and then asked to care about his recognition that he does not like himself either. In my opinion this is Huxley’s best novel. In the days following the dog’s fall Anthony begins to see through his own fictions for the first time. Nevertheless, taken as it is, this book is very very good.
It has been decades since I last attempted an Aldus Huxley book. And so on, indefinitely.

Want to Read saving…. Ma bucur ca nu i-am dat pace si m-am tot caznit cu el, putin cite putin. I can honestly recommend it to everyone.
The writing is, most of the time, quite brilliant. Some books can be read in large chunks and some cannot. At the bottom of the article, feel free to list any sources that support your changes, so that we can fully huxpey their context.
Eyeless in Gaza by Aldous Huxley. Then I read the first page and was thankful that I had just finished my last book. Aldous Huxley knows how to turn the huxlry on its head- from a higher perspective.
Refresh and try again. Horrible character that rage doesnt even suffer. It was Samson who fought the Philistines, whose ‘nazirite’ locks were lost due to female duplicity and resulting in his enslavement and his condition of being ‘eyeless in Gaza’. Fiica ei, Helen, cu care Anthony are o relatie esuata, e unul din personajele cele mai interesante si consistente. Anthony is an intriguing character with a development that includes the despicable and delightful. I saw psychology and mysticism and pacifism after all has been blown to hell.
Time jumps are artfully used to give us a deep understanding of Anthony, how he came to be who he is and why he has reason to be dissatisfied.
The end of an affair between Beavis and Helen Elberley is caused by her gasa when a dog falls from an aeroplane onto the house where they are staying, covering them in blood; and the revolution in Latin Anerica causes another old friend of Beavis’, Mark Staithes, to lose a leg when a wound becomes gangrenous.
The proof of God’s goodness floated in those clouds, crept in those grazing sheep, shone from every burning gaz of incandescent blossom — and, in himself and Joan, walked hand in hand across the grass and was manifest in their happiness.
Eyeless in Gaza
I found it fascinating to see how much he had developed as a novelist bywhen he published Eyeless in Gaza. The added irony is that the book ends and was written just before World War II which could mock its resolution. Anthony, Helen, Brian, and Mary Amberley began to haunt my paintings and my songs that summer before Sophomore year. The chronological gaps between the two can be huge or very short and what is remembered ranges from the obviously significant The story jumps around a lot chronologically so it is eyeles hard to establish the characters definitively, especially the peripheral ones.
Early on Huxley’s main character, who is no doubt based on himself, states: I read Eyeless in Gaza again after graduation, this time beginning to understand the sadder sides gaaa Helen and Mary Amberley- the grotesque depths of Anthony, and the nervous religious nature of Brian.
The novel is mainly polyphonic: The non-linear presentation was very confusing before I started actively paying attention to what time period in which each chapter took place.
School, university, love and loss, mistakes and adventures all play their part in the novel.
