Patrick White,: Riders in the Chariot

Riders in the Chariot


Description

This title comes with an introduction by David Malouf. Through the crumbling ruins of the once splendid Xanadu Miss Hare wanders, half-mad. In the wilderness she stumbles upon an Aborigine artist and a Jewish refugee. They place themselves in the care of a local washerwoman. In a world of pervasive evil, all four have been independently damaged and discarded. Now in one shared vision they find themselves bound together, understanding the possibility of redemption.

What sort of society could bind together Jacques Roubaud, Italo Calvino, Marcel Duchamp, and Raymond Queneau - and Daniel Levin Becker, a young American obsessed with language play? Only "The Oulipo", the Paris-based experimental collective founded in 1960 and fated to become one of literature's quirkiest movements. An international organization of writers, artists, and scientists who embrace formal and procedural constraints to achieve literature's possibilities, "The Oulipo" (the French acronym stands for "workshop for potential literature") is perhaps best known as the cradle of Georges Perec's novel "A Void", which does not contain the letter e. Drawn to the Oulipo's mystique, Levin Becker secured a Fulbright grant to study the organization and traveled to Paris. He was eventually offered membership, becoming only the second American to be admitted to the group. From the perspective of a young initiate, "The Riders in the Chariot download epub Oulipians" and their projects are at once bizarre and utterly compelling. Levin Becker's love for games, puzzles, and language play is infectious, calling to mind Elif Batuman's delight in Russian literature in "The Possessed".
