Description

Nineteen Twenty-One Adam Thorpe 371pp, Jonathan Cape, £1. 9.

Nineteen Twenty-One Adam Thorpe 371pp, Jonathan Cape, £1. Another week, another war novel, and you wonder what Adam Thorpe can contribute to the ever-growing canon of contemporary fiction about the great war. Wedged between the end of the war and the full onset of modernity, Thorpe's fourth novel reflects an England in terrible transition. And by opting for 1921, the year of a long hot summer, Thorpe draws on the modernist myth kitty to depict a spiritually impoverished wasteland awaiting the rain of renewal. As you'd expect, Thorpe's 80-year hindsight comes in handy as the.

Nineteen Twenty-One Adam Thorpe Jonathan Cape £1. C Day Lewis once said that World War I made Wilfred Owen a poet. Once it began, a sharp distinction was forged between writers who fought and those who stayed home. Meanwhile, war poets poured scorn on ignorant fantasies: invalided home, Owen thrust pictures of mutilated soldiers at visitors, while Sassoon sneered at women who 'love us when we're heroes'. The 'pity of war' was a subject for those who had been there, and as that was the subject of the age, not to speak on it was to fall silent. Adam Thorpe's latest novel, Nineteen Twenty-One, is a tale of war-induced writer's block.

Adam Thorpe's novel seeks to touch the marrow of this jazz and death-haunted period, which was ironically the most excitingly creative period of the last century.

It is the freakishly hot, drought summer of 1921; dust storms in London, parched and cracking earth, autumn tints in July. Holed up in a cottage in the Chilterns, a young writer strives to write the first great novel of the War, impelled by his own suffering.

Nineteen Twenty-One (Cape, 2001).

It is the freakishly hot, drought summer of 1921; dust storms in London, parched and cracking earth, autumn tints in July. Holed up in a cottage in the Chilterns, a young writer strives to write the first great novel of the War, impelled by his own suffering. Outward events and inner crises deflect him from his purpose, and love intervenes in the form of two very different women. A visit to the hallucinatory wreckage of post-war Flanders brings strange repercussions in its wake. Everyone is in some way damaged by the terrible years of the war; in what sense can art be made out of such horror? Adam Thorpe's novel seeks to touch the marrow of this jazz and death-haunted period, which was ironically the most excitingly creative period of the last century. In a language deeply soaked in the time and by means of a beguiling story which gradually haunts its own process, "Nineteen Twenty-One" vividly recreates the year in which "The Waste Land" was written, as well as offering a bright mirror to the inner and outer complexities of our own troubled times.
