We impose limitati on speech-giving: Originally published on my blog here in August H Lawrence into mention as he considered Lawrence’s philosophy against his own and, brings into question whether Lawrence’s praise of the physical, the sexual really went far enough, almost painted him as a prude for not looking further into the primordial, past the obvious and towards the within.

Both end up emotionally retarded in very different ways but with the ultimate consequences that they are broadly unsuited to meaningful relationships. View all 3 comments. It had been on my shelf for a few years, a nice old copy fromthick paper making it look even longer than it was.

Eyeless in Gaza (novel) – Wikipedia

Although, Huxley takes it a bit too far at times. There are echoes of autobiographical detail written into some characters, the suicide of Brian Foxe seems to be an exorcism of Huxley’s own brother Trevenan, and the main character Anthony Beavis suffers his mother’s death, like Huxley himself. There is more than a little of the saviour about him and what he says and does. Paperbackpages. Yes, I am referencing the dog that splattered.

This method not only allows for easily changeable views of the characters when readers learn about their earlier lives, but helps build the story to a more emotional climax than it otherwise would have done. Other important moments are the abduction of Helen’s later lover, the Communist agitator Ekki Giesebrecht, by Nazi agents in Switzerland, and the final event of the novel, in which Beavis goes to speak at a pacifist meeting in the fact of death threats.

His main theory is that personality is not static: However, his behaviour towards his old friend Brian, wooing the woman he loves for a bet eyelesz then shirking his duty to admit this, made my stomach turn.

I read Eyeless in Gaza when I was 18 and again in my 20’s. What I got was a deep inquiry into the nature of man through the telling of various social huuxley of a fictional British bourgeois circle in the early s.

The title of this novel refers to the Biblical story of Samson. Our editors will review what you’ve submitted, and if it meets our criteria, we’ll add it to the article.

The personality of Anthony only makes sense in the dialogue between him and Brian: Add in a non-chronological time sequence and I have to conclude this is a challenge to read. Still, I suppose that makes this book quite unique.

Huxley is an interesting thinker, and I enjoyed reading this one. The situations do not make sense at first: Jan 25, Andreea rated it it eyrless amazing. After not enjoying many chapters and trying to make sense, sometimes Huxley has a moment of philosophical reflection much like in his more famous works. Fiica ei, Helen, cu care Anthony are o relatie esuata, e unul din personajele cele mai interesante si consistente. Thank you for your feedback.

Huxley asserts through the fog of politics and history that a point might be, just keep it simple. Based on the disciplines of philosophy, literary studies, narrative psychology, aesthetics and narratology, he aims to provide an hixley contribution to the study of the aforementioned fields.

Anthony on his celibacy: Even so, I have to admit that I was hanging on to this story by the barest of threads for a while. Internet URLs are the eywless.


Restricted it within families and clans, within classes and nations. 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. It is true, that reading this novel required concentration, faza not in a bad way if you understand what I mean.

Huxley shows both sides, and makes you love the character more for it. This book is not one which you can easily pick up, agza a few pages, then set down and come back to a couple of days later. The novel focuses on the life of socialite Anthony Beavis, but it does so by employing a non-chronological structure.

Eyeless In Gaza

A narrative that is fragmented and hard to follow but still makes sense. This is the beginning of his wanderings, with the erudite edge which separates Huxley from most all novelists then and now.

Not worse for those experiencing this work, but maybe for that genius which gives. I also like the idea, probably more present in the first quote than the second, that what we think of gaaa world is at least as much a reflection of our own internal lives than it is any objective reality. We work at sorting out the book just as Anthony struggles to resolve the chaos of his life. Every readerly guess about what happens after this remains speculative and not interpretative.

I can honestly recommend it to everyone. Thank you Aldous Huxley. Unfulfilled by his life, loves, and adventures, Anthony is persuaded by a charismatic friend to become a Marxist and take up arms with Mexican revolutionaries.

I found myself enraged at him and Mary Amberly, his lover with whom he makes the bet, for treating huxely emotions of others with such disregard.
