review Scented Gardens for the Blind ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Erlene lives silently inside her mind communicating only with imaginary Uncle Black Beetle Her parents believe that she can and must be cured of he. utterly brilliant Frame is my find of the year read three this year so far to come I expect I called it poetic ranting somewhere This novel centres on a woman who assumes blindness and her daughter who has not spoken for many years although she does speak to an insect Uncle Blackbeetle who lives in a dictionary between death and dunghill but who comes out on to the windowsill to talk to her The father is absent studying the family tree of a family he has nothing to do with It s about the senses mixed up and shouting and soft and deadly It s about madness and sobriety and obsession and nothing at all It s weird and beautiful I will add a uote or two if I get chance later although have to take the book back to the library todayhere s Uncle Blackbeetle talking I had a cousin once who lived in your dictionary inside the binding and there was a tiny hole which he used for a door and it led out between trichotomy and trick Now what do you think of that It was only a few minutes walk to trigger then over the page to trinity trinket and trional and there my cousin used to fall asleepnot Blackbeetle there had just been a time when the human race grew up suddenly and panicked at the sight of the empty sky which they had once filled for comfort with fat old men wearing beards and smiling blue eyed smiles and dropping promises that disintegrated when they reached the atmosphere They were tiny pieces torn from a vast white sheet of blotting paper and flicked across the face of the earth They were all silent now Sound was absorbed into them staining them blocking their thoughts and dreams not able to leave them the pent up weight of words had fallen the world was at last muffled by the drifting centuries of its own speech The sun is all love and murder judgement the perpetual raid of conscience paratrooping light which opens like a snow blossom in the downward drift of death Wherever I turn the golden cymbals of judgement the summoning of the torturers of lightthere are better uotes but alas I now have to return the book

review Scented Gardens for the Blind ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free R muteness and that once she is cured she will make a statement crucial to humankind The novel twists in the last chapter to reveal another surpris. So this was the first Janet Frame novel I ever read picking it up some years ago after having seen Jane Campion s celebrated biopic An Angel at my Table I m not sure why Frame s genius was less obvious to me then than now all I can say is that I m very happy I returned to this for I do believe it is genius and I remembered nothing at all from my first reading which also alarms me but well it was back in my early teaching days say 15 20 years ago and I was often very busy very distracted with many adjunct positions and also raising a young childAnyway now I ve read Frame s first four novels or less in order I m going to have to repeat something I said in a previous review for it holds true for this novel as well Like Frame s second and third novels Faces in the Water and Edge of the Alphabet her first Owls Do Cry is to me a beautiful and lyric composition plumbing the depths of the inner lives of or less ordinary characters with a competency few authors accomplish Being her first written novel Owls Do Cry is perhaps a bit raw than her third Edge of the Alphabet which uses a very similar techniue juxtaposing or presenting in a parallel fashion the inner lives of several characters Owls depicts a family mainly through the narratives of its four children in various forms but the parents are primary characters as well Edge consists of the inner monologues of three people who meet on a steamer crossing from new Zealand to England if I recall correctlyContinuing from there Scented Gardens also juxtaposes the inner worlds of three characters also a family one in the first person entirely but the other two in the indirect third person although we get very deep into their thoughts so it s sometimes a bit of a moot point Therefore the polish I spoke of above in terms of Edge of the Alphabet follows here and I think that this novel is even better than its predecessor as the characters observations manias if you will are interesting and well uirky sensory deprivation light and silence as living forces muteness and blindness as concepts genealogy psychiatry anthropomorphizing a brown beetle on a windowsill in general communication and human interaction as an impeded process if not a terrifying impossibility all sheer poetry from start to finishI can t really say without spoiling the ending Suffice it to say the final four pages change everything for heaven s sake don t read the blurb on the back of this edition for it spoils it It s new territory for Frame s writing but it is only the last four pages so in a way it s a tag rather than a salient plot point I m a bit torn as to how I feel about the last chapter I was surprised of course but then kind of happy that Frame had broken from the previous novel s form a bit with the title Edge of the Alphabet you might have guessed already that it s themes are also communication isolation and alienation but also I m not sure that the final chapter adds anything to what came before even as it frames it I mean we know it s a novel we know that all narrative and all characters are the inventions of some single consciousness out there somewhere dare I say it on the edge of the alphabet
