Forgive me if I borrow liberally from a review found in a blog written several years ago by Mookse and Gripes The first paragraph matches my sentiments almost exactly As with MG this is my seventh Cormac McCarthy novel and like them this was his most difficult yet perhaps because much of the time I didn t really feel like I knew what was going on and didn t entirely trust that the obfuscation was with valid purpose More than any other McCarthy novel I had to work very hard to follow the narrative thread or rather to find the narrative thread after losing it several times There were some pay offs though Well before I finished it I already could tell it was going to be a book that I would enjoy thinking about than I enjoyed reading it It s been said by than a few that McCarthy s style is largely an imitation of William Faulkner s Of the six other McCarthy books that I have read only one Blood Meridian gave me that impression but it is very evident in this his first novel In its review in 1965 the New York Times ticked off a long litany of Faulknerisms including wandering pronouns with no visible antecedents the recondite vocabulary and coined words the dense prose packed with elaborate figures of speech the deliberate ambiguity the hints and withheld information the confusion in time and place and the flashbacks that fail to shed much light into the intermittent gloom All of these serve to make The Orchard Keeper an challenging book to read Even so it is still a fascinating and even though I seldom reread a book that I have finished I see myself revisiting this book at some time in the future It is one of those books that is impossible to fully absorb with just one readingSet in rural Tennessee in the years between the two World Wars this is the story of an old man a young man and a boy who are unbeknownst to them linked together by an act of violence that took place years before The old man Ather Ownby lives in a ramshackle cabin with no one for company but an ancient hound dog For much of the book he is a mute witness to what goes on around him All he wants is to be left in peace but in a world moving relentlessly into the future this is an unlikely prospect Marion Sylder is a bootlegger largely because that is the only way that someone in Red Branch can make a decent living Years before he was assaulted by one Kenneth Rattner and ended up killing him in self defense Later when he crashed his car full of whiskey upside down in a creek he was rescued by John Wesley Rattner a boy trying to earn money by trapping mink None of these characters has an easy life but they all do the best they can This is the world that Cormac McCarthy grew up in and it is obvious that he knows it well This book is not so much a story as a representation of the past present and future struggling to maintain its identity in the face of a rapidly modernizing world a common theme in many of McCarthy s booksMcCarthy does one thing in this book that I don t recall from his others There are several stories or anecdotes that while unrelated to the main story do provide entertainment or food for thought The prelude for example describes some men who are attempting to cut down a tree but are stymied because its trunk has grown around a wrought iron fence It doesn t appear to be related to the rest of the book but McCarthy seems to enjoy throwing in bits of symbolism and lets the reader figure out what it means if anything Bottom line The Orchard Keeper like Blood Meridian is a book that readers will spend a lot of time reflecting on Mookse Gripes nailed it when they said they were likely to enjoy thinking about it enjoyed reading it This should not be taken as discouragement though The three main characters are fascinating and likeable McCarthy s ability to bring them to life if just for a while is a blessing for as he tells us they are gone now Fled banished in death or exile lost undone On the lips of the strange race that now dwells there their names are myth legend dust

The Orchard Keeper Cormac McCarthy s first novel of a Southern uartetThe Orchard Keeper by Cormac McCarthy was selected by Tom Big Daddy Mathews as the Moderator s Choice for Members of On the Southern Literary Trail for January 2016 First Edition Random House New York New York 1965 Cormac McCarthy Dust Jacket Photo The Orchard Keeper Them that s got shall getThem that s not shall loseSo the Bible said and it still is newsMama may have Papa may haveBut God bless the child that s got his ownThat s got his own Billie Holliday God Bless the Child 1941You have to read this book I rarely say it I feel so strongly about it I ll say it again Read this book Read it straight through Then read it thoroughly thoughtfully See how Cormac McCarthy put this story together The hill country of Eastern Tennessee has always been different During the American Civil War the mountainous areas of Tennessee were a hotbed of UnionismSet in Red Branch Tennessee Cormac McCarthy created a community that portrayed the independence of the residents of that area of the state Red Branch is located somewhere between Knoxville and Sevierville in Tennessee The time of the story is between World War I and World War IIThe people of Red Branch are a close knit bunch It s a place of hospitality if you re one of their own If you re not from around there you re not likely to be welcome If you re a member of the Alcohol and Tobacco Unit of the Federal government don t expect a whole lot of information about who is running whiskey out of the Tennessee HillsFolks in Red Branch do what comes naturally Sex is a gift to be engaged in and enjoyed The young women are just as willing and eager as the young men are to enjoy one another Young Josh Tipton a bit player in the overall scheme of things is humiliated that his young lady insults him by telling him he s the nicest young man that ever needled her Perhaps he s insulted to be a nice young man But considering McCarthy s comedic moments it s likely Josh s humiliation over the needle size of his pride and joyA uick read The Orchard Keeper at first blush is a simple enough tale There are three main protagonists Marion Sylder a bad boy not above breaking the law by running unbranded whiskey out of the hills in fast cars Uncle Ather Ownby who tends a ruined apple orchard a hermit content to live alone away from the encroachment of civilization and young John Rattney a fatherless boy who comes to be fostered and mentored by both Sylder and OwnbyMcCarthy writes of a land and a people fast changing What was once unblemished forested mountainsides is being encroached upon by progress Or so some would call it McCarthy intimates it is a present fast forgetting the past They are gone now Fled banished in death or exile lost undone Over the land sun and wind still move to burn and sway the trees the grasses No avatar no scion no vestige of that people remains On the lips of the strange race that now dwells there their names are myth legend dust John s last memory of his father Kenneth is being given an orange drink by his father purchased for a nickel before his father left for South Carolina in search of a job It s the last time John ever sees his fatherJohn s mother reminds him that his father was a hero in the army returning from service with a platinum plate in his skull She also tells him that if only his father were there neither he nor she would want for anything for his father had always been a good provider Evidence is to the contraryKenneth Rattney was no hero He was a con man and a thief always on the lookout for an easy buck Whether he came by it honestly or not he didn t careKenneth hitches a ride with Marion Sylder who is coming back home to Red Branch after an absence of five years Sylder s driving a new black Ford coupe He s well dressed Rattney s wrong when he decides Sylder s an easy mark When Sylder has a flat Rattney attacks him with a tire iron Sylder kills him in self defense disposing of his body by rolling him off the road where the body lands in the old spray pit of the gnarled and ruined orchard tended by Uncle Ather Sylder has no idea whose body he s rolled off the roadUncle Ather walking through his ruined orchard discovers Rattner s body floating in the old spray pit Ather s learned a long time ago that bringing in the authorities is only going to lead to meddling He hides the body piling cut cedar trees over the old pit Neither does Ather know the identity of the body floating in the pitBack at the rickety shack John and his mother occupy John is drawn into the nature of the wilderness that surrounds him He moves his bed to the enclosed porch of the house watching the change of the seasons His mother for all purposes a widow leaves John to his own devises John does not attend school No truant officers exist to drag him away from his wandering through the woods that surround himDuring his regular walks through the remarkable landscape in which he lives John meets both Marion Sylder and Uncle Ather Both become mentors essentially foster fathers to him John watches Sylder slide through a curve plunging into a swift running creek He pulls him from his car Sylder realizes the boy saved his life and he returns the favor by seeing the boy share the comfort of his home supplies him with enough money to increase the string of his traps with which he wishes to earn money for his mother s support and gives the boy his first dogUncle Ather is a fount of folkways and woodlore He is a natural storyteller a man seemingly older than the hills he wanders Ather still remembers when civilization was so distant that painters or panthers regularly roamed the woods their screams piercing the black night unlit by a distant civilizationHowever society is changing There is no place for characters such as Marion Sylder and Uncle Ather Ownby Running unbranded or shall we say untaxed whiskey isn t good for Government Revenue Sheriff Gifford the symbol of government authority is on the lookout for Sylder Ather calls the law down on himself when he shoots up a tank put up on one of his beloved mountains by the United States ArmyJohn Rattner remains loyal to both his friends as the law closes in on them McCarthy makes it clear that both bootlegger and mountain hermit can be fathers of greater influence than a man who merely fertilizes an eggWhat first appears to be a relatively simple plot is not as simple as it appears Just who is the narrator of this tale Is this an unknown omniscient narrator speaking to us in the third person Or is this a classic bildungsroman told by an older wiser John RattnerMcCarthy created a remarkable story with his debut The language of the hill people is pitch perfect His prose

Characters Ù The Orchard Keeper Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Lve se numa remota comunidade rural de Tennessee num período situado entre as duas guerras mundiais tendo como protagonistas um. Who s Who and What s What The cardinal shot like a drop of blood The oil lamp glowed serenely at its image a soft corolla inflaming the black window glass where a curled and withered spider dangled with a dusty thread The sun broke through the final shelf of clouds and bathed for a moment the dripping trees with blood tinted the stones a diaphanous wash of color as if the very air had gone to wine McCarthy s prose in this first book of his is very beautiful but it isn t the prose that has made him who he is a great writer the best in fact It was his prose in The Road Blood Meridian and in No Country for Old Men that made him famous that also allowed me to read such horrifying books It just carried me along made me want Some reviewers took note that other reviewers were just comparing this book to his later writings While that complaint is understandable I find myself doing the same and for the same reason This book was a difficult read it made no sense where sense was needed I was half way through with the book when I decided to start all over but even then it was hard to follow and I found myself analyzing why First McCarthy used pronouns in place of a person s name much of the time and he would be talking about one person s story just to begin another s still using the pronoun He I would continue reading and hope that I would soon know just who he was talking about and sometimes I figured it out sometimes not I uickly learned that The old man was the orchard keeper and the boy a friend whose dad had disappeared and was buried in the orchard not by the orchard keeper but by Marion who is called The man Marion also had befriended the boy But the man could mean just about anyone not just Marion so if you are careful to notice you might figure it out And then a few stories in this book just didn t make any sense to me But hey it was his first novel and while I am surprised that it was published the publishers probably had better reading comprehension than many of us readers
