    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubThe novel is a coming of age tale that's practically Victorian Our protagonist but a mere spectator of a modern and exciting merger between East and West Living in India Samar is an intellectual who loves to read He has this gift to take on Western classics like Flaubert's Sentimental Education applies them to his daily life as a university student who although wanting to experience his world as any youth could is a teeny

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubPankaj Mishra is another of those writers from Asia influenced by VS Naipaul and it shows here in his first novel The succinct sentences and reflections on the small dramas of ordinary life are familiar The book is made pleasant than some of Naipaul's writing by the refreshing absence of misanthropy This is a story about searching Westerners and drifting Indians whose lives intersect in Varanasi I read it as being subtly autobiographical though I do not know to what extent it reflects Mishra's own life The prose is simple and elouent One could argue that not much happens but somehow that doesn't detract from the enjoyment The main character is someone that most people who live a life of the mind can probably relate to on some levelI'm familiar with Mishra's non fiction works but this book shows his talents as a novelist as well Hope to see works like this from him one day in the future

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubThe Romantics’ is in many ways about the unbridgeable gap between two disparate cultures; between the supercilious sense of superiority which the West holds over the East a feeling which is perpetuated by those who claim to hold an affinity to the East seeking to reduce it’s rich and diverse cultural heritage into an easy set of cliches and platitudes fetishizing its beliefs people and practices cloaking the vapidity of their spiritual seances beneath a garbled set set of misconstructions and misconstruememts Likewise the East struggling under the weight of a sense of collective cultural inferiority reveres the West to the point of adulation This isn’t so much a criticism of cultural interaction after all every culture is fluid and is a patchwork uilt of a myriad of different belief

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubThe Romantics Mishra’s only novel is well stated with a lovely use of language and semantics But if I an unestablished not yet emerging author had written this novel for a creative writing class I’m sure it would have come back to me slashed and bleeding red ink all over the place Mishra tells a first person narrative of Samar a young academic living in Benares and the various foreigners presumably the titular romantics he encounters becomes acuainted with and may or may not

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubThis is Pankaj Mishra's first book Since the book is set in Varanasi I had to read it But frankly i was uite disappointed to read it A depressing book it follows the pseudo acceptance of the West's fascination and way of looking at Varanasi There is no coherence of central plot or idea and when you finish the book you think why did I waste my time on it? Avoid

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics Epub86th book for 2019A beautifully observed story set in 1980s Benares where a young Indian has gone to self educate themselves by reading classic novels and ends up learning as much about life through the simple action of living as much as by reading wordsMade me nostalgic for my confused twenties 4 stars

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubGiving this three stars because of an amazing beginning The 100 first pages were so good I was definitely thinking this would be a 5 star rating The culture clash between Europeans and Indians was so interesting to delve into especially from an Indian point of view However after 100 pages the plot just kinda stopped I meanCharacter development? Nah not really Besides I didn`t feel like the protagonist was fleshed

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubWell at least I finished it this timeBoredom got to me last time I tried to read this book The narrator is a dull insecure observer who doesn't reveal enough of himself or others for this reader to be drawn into his world Samar reminisces about his time as a student in the holy city of Benares where he hoped to lose himself in books My response to this book is much like his response to his first reading of Flaubert's Sentimental Education which struck him as flat and overly long He did persevere to the very end but it was with the bloody mindedness with which a man might finish a marathon long after he has run out of energy I find the parallels between these two books interesting than the novel itself and my summary of The Romanti

    The Romantics eBook ↠ å PDF/EPUB bunatime.co romantics ebok, The Romantics EpubThe Romantics by contemporary Indian author Pankaj Mishra seems to be his only novel Which is a pity because I really enjoyed itLast weekend I went to a Melbourne Writers' Festival session called Bookwallah which I thought was going be a promotion of Indian writing but instead the session turned out to be primarily journalistic commentary about the state of India today The panel consisted of Annie Zaidi Chandrahas Choudhury and moderator Nick Law Although they didn't really talk much about books they did offer a glimpse of the sort of themes one might encounter in the literature of India•Religious conflict every Indian they said had to make up hisher mind about the conflict between Hindu and Muslim even though there are now some who say that the hatreds of Partition are now long ago•City versus village life the vast majority of Indians still live in villages
