Farrell Read & download Troubles Tti semiselvatici e straordinariamente prolificiIl maggiore avrebbe tutte le ragioni per filarsela dalla sua vecchia zia in Inghilterra compreso il comportamento così sfuggente e vago di Angela Spencer così poco consono a uello di una «fidanzata» tuttavia è assolutamente incapace di staccarsi da uell'enorme edificio fatiscente Ipnotizzato dalla rovina e dai «misteri mondani della vita irlandese» Brendan Archer trascorre l'estate placidamente cullato dallo charme del vecchio albergo e del tutto ignaro della tempesta che si avvicina Siamo nell'Irlanda del 1919 l'anno in cui la lotta per l'indipendenza esplode con una brutalità senza pariConsiderato il capolavoro di J G Farrell Tumulti esprime la fine di un mondo e come scrive John Banville nella postfazione a uesto volume «è il lamento più magicamente comico che a un lettore capiterà mai di leggere?. 45 What with Brexit Megxit and the potential dissolution of the United Kingdom it seemed high time to turn to JG Farrell s Empire Trilogy to gain some historical perspective Troubles is set in Ireland during the Irish War of Independence of 1919 but almost the entire story takes place within the confines of The Majestic Hotel This once proud institution is really the main character in the novel a faded beauty now in ruinous decline The book is full of vivid descriptions of this sprawling edifice and it s advancing decrepitude but I was mesmerised by the Palm Court The Palm Court proved to be a vast shadowy cavern in which dusty white chairs stood in silent empty groups just visible here and there amid the gloomy foliage For the palms had completely run riot shooting out of their wooden tubs some of which had cracked open to trickle little cones of black soil on to the tiled floor towards the distant murky skylight hammering and interweaving themselves against the greenish glass that sullenly glowed overhead Here and there between the tables beds of oozing mould supported banana and rubber plants hairy ferns elephant grass and creepers that dangled from above like emerald intestines I don t think Farrell intends to educated the reader on the specifics of Irish history but rather you get the sensation of momentous social upheaval occurring incrementally As comedic as this story can be there remains a base note of doom sounding louder and louder as the novel proceeds It is this constant frisson that makes this novel so interesting The writing turns on a dime between satire gothic horror and romantic comedy but you don t need to dig far too find some cutting commentary about the Anglo Irish aristocracy and British colonialism For the important fact was this the presence of the British signified a moral authority not just an administrative one here in Ireland as in India Africa and elsewhere It would have to be matched by the natives themselves before self government became an acceptable proposition So thought the Major anyway Did some of this get boring Yes yes it did There is plenty of mooning about romantic pining falling plasterwork cat and old lady wrangling but at its very best it is electrifying JG has penned a truely marvellous portrayal of inevitable declinein this novel nothing lasts buildings crumble and empires eventually fall I wonder if it is on Boris s reading list

What is any hotel It is a temporal harbour for a tired wayfarer and traveler along the roads of life But creative mind can turn an hotel into a much greater allegorical thingNot far away the two massive weatherworn gateposts of the Majestic rose out of the impenetrable foliage that lined the sea side of the road As they passed between them the gates themselves had vanished leaving only the skeletons of the enormous iron hinges that had once held them the Major took a closer look each one was surmounted by a great stone ball on which a rain polished stone crown was perched slightly askew lending the gateposts a drunken ridiculous air like solemn men in paper hats To the right of the drive stood what had once no doubt been a porter s lodge now so thickly bearded in ivy that only the two dark oblongs of smashed windows revealed that this leafy mass was hollow The thick congregation of deciduous trees behind which one could hear the sea slapping faintly thinned progressively into pines as they made their way over the narrowest part of the peninsula and then returned again as they reached the park over which loomed the dark mass of the hotel The size of the place astonished the Major As they approached he looked up at the great turreted wall hanging over them and tried to count the balconies and windowsThe mighty hotel stands as a metaphor for the Empire it is far past the days of its prime it is in the state of bleak decline and severe disrepair And the life of its residents is an allegory of the nation Deterioration rules but no one really caresThe novel is laden with the brilliant and sharp even if somewhat blackish humour all the way throughEmpires should be buried in mirth and not in tears
