    (Take a Girl Like You) [PDF/EBOOK] ´ Kingsley Amis It's not always pretty when Amis is on about women The Russian Girl and Stanley and the Women are both sort of ridiculous but the unelaborated kneejerk conclusion that his handling of the date rape here must therefore be problematic is just asinine That it was or less inevitable in this story doesn't mean Amis is excusing it And in the broader context of the conflict between Jenny's provincial morality and Patrick's cosmopolitan outlook i

Take a Girl Like You

Take a Girl Like You Download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Take a Girl Like You may well be Kingsley Amis’s most ambitious reckoning with the serious subject at the heart of his work the sheer sualor emotional material sexual you name it of modern life It also introduces one of the rare. I hardly know what to say about this book I do not know whether Kingsley Amis is approving of his characters life choices or trying to come to grips with the abruptly changing moral landscape of England in 1960 Does he really believe the moral paradigm that traditional relationships grounded in Christian principles to be outdated and incapable Or is he simply calling it as he sees itHe certainly does not glamorize what he sees as traditional morals replacement His characters lead uite dreary lives But to sumJenny Bunn is a twenty year old girl from the North of England who has traveled south to a town near London to work as a teacher She lives with Dick and Martha Torkington who rent a room to her and a French girl named AnnaJenny is very pretty and she is conscious of that without being particularly concerned and even if she was unconscious she was constantly reminded of her looks by the wolfish and lustful gazes of every single man she comes into contact with Even Anna is attracted to herAmis male characters are all lechers who cannot stop themselves from groping leering propositioning and otherwise sexually harrassing women Not that any of the women mind not even Jenny who though a good girl does not seem to possess any kind of discernment as to the uality of men she should associate with She is not much offended when Anna sexually harasses her although she makes it clear she is not interestedJenny is old fashioned She s not particularly religious but she does believe she should remain a virgin until she s marries because that s how she feels and she s uite firm about itPatrick Standish is a young headmaster who teaches at a nearby secondary school and happened to be at the Torkington s when he meets Jenny He immediately goes about trying to seduce her Jenny likes Patrick and wants to pursue a relationship with him but makes it clear that they will marry before any sex happensPatrick makes it eually clear that marriage is not a goal of his only sex And he doesn t have any intention of being monogamous either He does not hide his opinions from Jenny in either word or deed One asks oneself why Jenny would remain interested in someone whose uality of character is laid out so clearly before her But Jenny seems to live in kind of a somnambulic state as she passively watches her world go byPatrick is determined to have her and sleep with her He gets himself uite worked up to the point where he sleeps with a divorcee while dead drunk he was dead drunk not she and I m not uite sure how he accomplished that and also with an underage girl for whom he magnanimously finances an abortionAs the story progresses we wonder who is going to win Jenny or Patrick Jenny never compromises She gets roofied at a party and Patrick takes advantage of her Hence he gets what he wants but without her permissionOne then wonders what is going to happen Is Jenny going to wake up At first she seems to She gives Patrick a telling off and asserts she is never going to see him again I gather that women did not report date rape to the police back then or statutory rape or consider that someone like Patrick is a repulsive sleazeball Patrick however does not give up and she finally relentsHer conclusion is that it was unrealistic of her to believe in commitment and marriage and all that In fact it was selfish of her to expect than to be one of Patrick s many amoursAs I read the book aside from the brilliant and witty writing at which Amis is a master I wondered if Amis real point was to show how modern at the time life had emptied out all real meaning as regards relationships That the Church had rendered itself obsolete but had left a moral vacuum into which the young generation had climbed What was leftI don t love you you don t love me I am using you but that s all right because you are using me as well and that is the most anyone can expect while they are aliveIf Amis was intending to create a scene of hopelessness and despair he succeeded Luckily I don t mistake his book for the Gospel

The I read Kingsley Amis the I like him Take a Girl Like You is a tad different from the old letch s other works that I ve read Its heroine is a genuinely good girl surrounded by leering men who want to sample her virginity The daughter of a North England hearse driver Miss Bunn is prim and proper until she attends a party at the end given by one Julian Ormerod where she is deflowered while under the influence by her boyfriend Patrick StandishNow Patrick is in no way as moral as Miss Bunn and he samples various fleshpot denizens during the course of the novel I can imagine Amis thinking Well he s not so bad kind of like me in a way Still Jenny is a nice girl and I find it is possible to write a novel in our day with a genuinely good main character
