This was liberating since it distracted me entirely from the issue of lost love. They all seem to get what they deserve in the long run. All at the same time. He had peered out at the garden, and it was as though bits of his eyelids had broken off and were flittering and jittering before him, turning into nervous shapes and shadows, jumping to the guilty chattering in his mind, not quite voices yet, but they were coming back, they were coming back.

He mistranslates this as “You like this garden? I thought to compose an ode to this thin-skinned and oh so brave piece of work, one that considered ‘vital’ the need to cloak oneself in shrouds of objective cleverness writing from the scheme of rote, but recognized the conventions as being too limited.

Lowry is buried in the churchyard of St John the Baptist in Ripe. There were so many things about this book that I really loved.

We evict those who destroy! Having lived with an alcoholic for too long, I no longer have much patience for them or for people who tolerate their lies and manipulations and self-destructive arrogance.

Under the Volcano tells the indelibly haunting tale of Geoffrey Firmin, a former British consul living in Mexico inassiduously drowning himself in alcohol. Much of the narrative is a drunken stream-of-consciousness and it makes you feel tipsy reading it. Margerie Bonner rescued the unfinished novel, but all of Lowry’s other works in progress were lost in the blaze.

Laruelle’s Day of the Dead, in the first chapter, ends at 7 PM; Yvonne returns to the Consul at 7 AM and the day that takes up chapters 2 through 12 ends at 7 PM; at the novel’s close, the clock strikes seven times and a cock appears to confirm the Indian belief that “a clock crowing seven times announces death”, while the clock also announces the opening of the seventh seal.



In fact, there are four main characters in the book, and it is possible to interpret all four as differing aspects of the one character. English Malco,m a language for shopping. While not in any sense a horror story, I was horrified and, especially in the last quarter of the book, often downright scared.
