Hartley ↠ 6 Read & Download The past is a foreign country they do things differently thereSummering with a fellow schoolboy on a great English estate Leo the hero of L P Hartley's finest novel encounters a world of unimagined luxury But when his friend's beautiful. A sublime novel beautifully written and very evocative It has probably one of the most famous opening lines in literature Do I need to uote it Probably not but I will because it does sum up the book The past is a foreign country they do things differently there In the early 1950s Leo Colston looks back on the long hot summer of 1900 when he turned 13 the memory of which he has blanked out He discovers his diary and begins to piece together the events Hartley describes life in an English preparatory school rather well and the relationship between Leo and Marcus Maudsley is believeable throughout Leo is invited to Brandhan Hall to spend part of the holidays including his birthday with Marcus and his family a home much grander then Leo s Here Leo accidentally falls into the role of go between for Marian Maudsley Marcus s sister supposed to be engaged to Lord Trimingham and a local farmer Ted Burgess The tragedy is played out in the shimmering heat of the summer set around life in the Hall a cricket match and a general sense late VictorianEdwardian sense of progressThe description of a hot English summer is spot on I m being reminded of that at the momentand there is plenty of symbolism going on beneath Leo becomes obsessed with Mr Maudsley senior s weather station checking the rising Mercury contrast Mercury messenger of the gods Leo s innocence inuisitiveness and naivety perfectly counteract the desires plots and plans of the adults Hartley explores the nature of class and gender at the time the cricket match is so exactly portrayed Hall vs Village there are also deeper meanings the scene with the deadly nightshade is remarkable and Leo s interest in the signs of the zodiac all fit neatly together as part of the tapestry Of course when reading and writing about it Pinter s brilliant film starring Alan Bates and Julie Christie is in my mind and has become almost impossible to separate from the book The remembering of repressed memories is very Freudian and the obvious defence mechanisms ring very true as does the intrusion of adult sexuality into young innocence The restraint and not revealing everything adds to the power of the novel just a beautifully written novel

Hartley ↠ 6 Read & Download Is a masterpiece a richly layered spellbinding story about past and present naiveté and knowledge and the mysteries of the human heart This volume includes for the first time ever in North America Hartley's own introduction to the novel. Do you remember what that summer was like how much beautiful than any since This made for perfect heatwave reading over the past couple of weeks very English and very much of the historical period that it evokes it is a nostalgic work remembering one summer when everything changedSummer 1900 Norfolk Twelve year old Leo Colston is invited to spend the several July weeks leading up to his birthday at his school friend Marcus Maudsley s home Brandham Hall Although the fatherless boy is keenly aware of the class difference between their families in a year of learning to evade bullies he s developed some confidence in his skills and pluck fancying himself an amateur magician and gifted singer Being useful makes him feel less like a charity case so he eagerly agrees to act as postman for Marcus s older sister Marian who exchanges freuent letters with their tenant farmer Ted Burgess Marian engaged to Hugh a viscount and injured Boer War veteran insists the correspondence is purely business related but Leo suspects he s abetting trysts the family would disapprove ofLeo is right on the cusp of adolescence a moment of transition that mirrors the crossing into a new century As he glories in the summer s mounting heat a liberating power with its own laws and mentally goads the weather into hitting ever greater extremes he pushes against the limits of his innocence begging Ted to tell him about spooning that is the facts of life The heat becomes a character in its own right gloweringly presiding over the emotional tension caused by secrets spells and betrayals And yet this is also a very funny novel I loved Leo s Franglais conversations with Marcus and the confusion over mispronouncing Hugh as you In places the tone even reminded me of Cold Comfort FarmLike A Month in the Country this autobiographical story is an old man s reminiscences going back half a century in memory but here Leo gets the chance to go back in person as well seeing what has become of Brandham Hall and meeting one of the major players from that summer drama that branded him for life I thought this masterfully done in every way the class divide the picture of childhood tipping over into the teenage years the oppressive atmosphere the comical touches You know from the famous first line onwards The past is a foreign country they do things differently there that this will juxtapose past and present which of course has now become past and further past in a powerful way similar to Moon Tiger my favorite fiction read of last year I ll be exploring of Hartley s workNote Although I am a firm advocate of DNFing if a book is not working for you I would also like to put in a good word for trying a book again another time Ironically this had been a DNF for me last summer I found the prologue with all its talk of the zodiac utterly dull I had the same problem with Cold Comfort Farm literally trying about three times to get through the prologue and failing So for both I eventually let myself skip the prologue read the whole novel and then go back to the prologue Worked a treatOriginally published on my blog Bookish Beck
