Who Has Seen the Wind Characters × 2 WP Kinsella has called Who Has Seen the Wind the uintessential novel of growing up on the Prairies Canada's Catcher in the Rye WO Mitchell who was born and grew up in small town Saskatchewan evokes the immensity of the landscape with a lyrical prose style from the ferociousness of the wind to the far reaches of the bright blue sky It's probably the most important Canadian novel of boyhoo. I am still recovering years hence from being beaten into submission by this book by my grade 11 English teacher whom I have otherwise since come to adore being force fed so much of its prairie fields of wheat its bodies coming through the rye its wind barely shaking the barley writing as bland and endless as those plain plains as bowlfuls of Cream of Wheat with nary a sultana in sight to break up the monotonony of white It sticks in your throat Damn you Canadian Content Mongers CCMs for short for goose stuffing me with this meagre corn and how dare you GR harass pronounced hair iss north of the 49th Parallel or so the language coaches at the CBC keep coaching us me now so many years since with your canned CanConned recommendations so

Review Who Has Seen the Wind

Who Has Seen the Wind Characters × 2 D Mitchell used memories of his own childhood to create the world of Brian O'Connal balancing a finely drawn sense of humour with a delicate nostalgia for a world that had already been lost even as Mitchell wrote about it in the aftermath of the Second World War Like children everywhere Brian is curious about everything and the author allows him to freely explore his prairie world taking. I first read Who Has Seen the Wind in school when I was about 13 back in the late 1970 s It was the first book that truly touched my soul Remember in the movie of Harry Potter and the Philosopher s Stone when Harry first holds his wand in Olivander s shop It was like that I couldn t wait to discuss it in class My teacher asked some uestion I ve forgotten and I raised my hand and enthusiastically expressed the fullness of my heart and all the novel had revealed to me My teacher flatly responded No that s not what the author meant at all Sitting back in my chair at that moment I understood the fallibility of teachers and further that THIS teacher didn t have a clue WO Mitchell s genius was utterly clear to me He had somehow spoken to me a girl of 13 living in Ottawa across the decades and the miles and my poor teacher had missed out on the transmission My teacher s loss but not mine I ve kept that paperback novel ever since moved it from hovel to apartment to house and now some 37 years later with some trepidation I decided it was time to read it again Could it ever capture my heart as it did when I first looked on it with young fresh innocent eyes Miraculously Yes I am enraptured now as I was then This is not a story in which big events happen On one level it is the story of a little boy Brian growing up in a small town on the prairies in the dust bowl years a thoughtful boy who learns to grow into a compassionate caring human being He learns from being affected by life and death too many deaths for a young boy and finding a spiritual grace in nature On another level it is a love story for the Canadian prairies and a parable of the value of wilderness and wild things It is also a exploration of good and evil in the hearts of men and women and the group think that allows decent people to follow the path of least resistance Two different characters refer to Joseph Conrad s Heart of Darkness in referring to the same third characterWithin these pages Mitchell has brought to life a wide cast of believable characters with a light but precise touch His exuisite descriptions of life and nature show his love of the prairie landscape Throughout he weaves thoughtful explorations of the meaning of life and what it means to be human So glad I read this again
