FREE DOWNLOAD õ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ì Ann Wroe Ann Wroe ì 7 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE READ Orpheus By Ann Wroe Alising Cicero and Plato and breathing new music into Gluck and Monteverdi; occupying the mind of Jung and the surreal dreams of Cocteau; scandalising the Fathers of the early Church and filling Rilke with poems like a whirlwind He emerges as not simply another mythical figure but the force of creation itself singing the song of light out of darkness and life out of death. This is round two for me with Wroe s passionate purposed poised naked unadulterated mythological humaniograpy of Orpheus Her language fears nothing and because of that each sentence is simple and is complex like a plot and intercalary chapter from the Grapes of Wrath superimposed What most strikes me or doesn t strike me is the the way information data ideas references descriptions thrust forward without a splashing of the verbal oars or any jerky moments from the syntactical keel the mind and the pen sculled in utter harmony the waters Ann Wroe traveled with this book To bring the praise pretentiousness o meter down a notch or peg or two this book is a hybrid that puts any Prius to shame it works on all elements water fire earth and air Bravo

FREE DOWNLOAD õ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ì Ann Wroe Ann Wroe ì 7 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE READ Orpheus By Ann Wroe For at least two and a half millennia the figure of Orpheus has haunted humanity Half man half god musician magician theologian poet and lover his story never leaves us He may be myth but his lyre still sounds entrancing everything that hears it animals trees water stones and menIn this extraordinary work Ann Wroe goes in search of Orpheus from the forests where he walked. This is as a blurb on the cover says a remarkable book I notice that some Goodreads reviews of it are very positive and some are very negative having read it I feel that both are right or that their views are entirely justAnn Wroe has written a remarkable book it is a biography of Orpheus and since that is an impossible thing you have perhaps a pre taste of how this can be a divisive bookThe book is divided into seven strings or chapters as they might be conventionally called the first two it seemed to me covered the origins the third the voyage of the Argo the fourth Eurydike the fifth the journey into the Underworld the sixth life after Eurydice the seventh the death of Orpheus Within each String Wroe discusses Orpheus and his life by reference to those who have written about him so we move from Seneca to Rilke to Virgil to CG Jung to Greek pottery to Moniverdi to Euripedes to Gluck but not to OffenbachConceptually it is bold but also an understandable progression from Wroe s earlier books about sketchy figures perhaps it is a slight twist on one of her day jobs as an obituaries editor On the downside you don t get a picture of what Orpheus meant to Rilke or how the Orpheus story developed in time all the variants exist concurrently in Wroe s narrative I am left with the impression that it is a book that it brave impossible and funOrpheus might be significant in Roman writings than in Greek he might have been a god then demoted to demi god son of the muse Calliope or just to plain human he could be seen as a forerunner to Christ by early Christians and as both part of Dionsysian worship but also as an Apollonian figure Eurydice Wroe says her name can be translated in to English as deep knowledge was not part of the earlier stories she came later and there seems to be some overlap between her names and attributes and those of Persephone while in one version of the Argo story Orpheus is relatively young and in the other an old manThe degree of variation in versions of the Orpheus stories put me in mind of Marina Warner s book Once Upon a Time A Short History of Fairy Tale and that sense that the strength of the story is in its adaptability if you try to strip away the later layers you are not left with an original core but with nothing at all
