The Essex Serpent

The Essex Serpent Free read É 106 Free download à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB å Sarah Perry KalbefolkningenCoras teori är att det rör sig om en oupptäckt art som hon är fast besluten att hitta och klassificera Hon finner en oväntad vän och intellektuell jämlike i traktens präst William Ransome Tillsammans söker de svaret på gåtan samtidigt som Will och Cora oundvikligen dras till varandr. Well this will certainly teach me about that old adage re books and covers I really love a Victorian floral in the William Morris mode and buttercup yellow endpapers charming In my mind this was going to be a gothic tale of serpents and maybe some Victorian sexual repression something along those lines Certainly serpents were mentioned people seemed flustered about it but the entire thing lacked any kind of narrative tension or gothic edge unless you count the odd fog Then there was the love uadrilateral I really stopped counting how many people were in love with Cora not by all accounts a great beauty or from what I could see particularly engaging So this epidemic of lovelorn people seemed puzzling to me Passions when they did very briefly arise were kind of neutered and odd This is certainly not a Victorian romance novel thenOne could read it for passing social commentary on the dire state of housing in Bethnal Green or perhaps for an interesting account of medical procedures of the era My point being this seemed like a novel struggling to figure out what it wanted to be There was some very picturesue writing on landscapes and scents and sounds but this only takes a novel so far I somehow missed something in this book that resonated with other readers perhaps one needed to fall in love with Cora as well In my opinion if you need to read a contemporary Victorian novel it has to be Faber s Crimson Petal and the White

The Essex Serpent Free read É 106 Free download à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB å Sarah Perry London 1893 Cora Seaborne är fortfarande ung men har just blivit änka och nu förväntar sig omgivningen att hon ska snöra åt korsetten klä sig i svart och dra sig tillbaka med en knähund i famnen Men äktenskapet var inte särskilt lyckligt och rollen som viktoriansk societetsfru passade aldrig den eg. Late Victorian England Cora Seaborne newly widowed by a sadistic but wealthy husband and now free to follow her interests in palaeontology finds herself in the Essex village of Aldwinter where rumours of a sea serpent lurking in the always conveniently foggy bay have the locals in a superstitious tizz There she meets local vicar Will Ransome and the two form an instant rapport despite their supposedly opposing views and despite the fact that the vicar already has a wife and children But then Will s wife coughs and instantly if you ve ever seen any costume drama ever you know what s going to happen to herI have to say that for me The Essex Serpent never really came alive as a novel It had potentially interesting characters but they were never uite convincing Perhaps because they were all too nice to one another Will s wife was way too understanding and the few tensions between them seemed like a failed attempt to liven things up rather than a genuine outgrowth of the characters themselves In her Author s Note at the end of the book Sarah Perry mentions Matthew Sweet s Inventing the Victorians for its challenge to the notion of a prudish era enslaved by religion and incomprehensible manners but I suspect it s that version of the Victorian Age readers want from a Victorian era novel so any author wanting to counter that view of the age really has to do a bit of extra work As a result Perry s Victorian age doesn t uite convince everyone was far too nice and understanding instead of being gossipy a married vicar carrying on with a widow disapproving and censorious Why else set the book in the Victorian Age at all Just for the costumesThat wouldn t have mattered had the book had a compelling plot or if it had explored any one of its incipient themes in detail I was expecting about the clash between superstition and rationality which was surely what was promised by the meeting of scientific Cora was she going to be the Serpent in this Essex Eden and religious Will but Will simply wasn t religious enough most of the time Or even had there been a genuine lingering air of weirdness or mystery about the serpent So for me the book never really turned into a novel but just remained a collection of characters bumping into one another In costume
