Angels Insects Two Novellas Summary â E-book, or Kindle E-pub Read Angels Insects Two Novellas Volumul Îngeri şi insecte Angels and Insects cuprinde două romane scurte Morpho Eugenia şi Îngerul conjugal Amestec de ficţiune postmodernă cu n. As a fourth read from her this helps confirm Byatt as among my favorite authors All complex rich and mesmerizing This pair of novellas was published together in 1992 soon after Booker Prize winner Possession The blurb on the cover did a good job hooking me and mystifying me with semi spoilers in distorted compression The shipwrecked naturalist who is the protagonist of Morpho Eugenia is rescued by a family whose clandestine passions come to seem as inscrutable as the behavior of insects In The Conjugial Angel a circle of fictional mediums finds itself haunted by the ghost of a very real historical personage The naturalist one William Adamson has lost most of his specimens and notes from his ten years in the jungles of South America and his prospects for a lucrative career based on the work are slim One of his wealthy customers for rare butterflies and the like takes him in and gives him work organizing his collection Harald Alabaster also tasks him to serve as a sounding board for his ideas for a treatise that can reconcile God with Darwinian evolution which at this point in the 1860s is a hot topic Fascinating discussions but to William the efforts of Alabaster don t inspire him But you do not feel your own sense of wonder corresponds to something beyond yourself William I do indeed But I also ask myself what has this sense of wonder to do with my moral sense For the Creation we so admire does not appear to have a Creator who cares for his creatures Nature is red in tooth and claw as Mr Tennyson put it The jungle does indeed arouse a sense of wonder at its abundance and luxuriance But there is a spirit there a terrible spirit of mindless striving or apathetic inertia a kind of vegetable greed and vast decay which makes a mindless natural force much easier to believe in He may be a rational scientist but he succumbs like a fool to love at first sight with one of Alabaster s daughters Eugenia Happy days come for him at winning her agreement to marriage and persuading her father to accede despite his low birth But there is something missing in Eugenia who passively goes along with being a baby machine This is one of so many analogies with the social insects that were his focus in his field work and a major topic of the discussions with his father in law Being a useless drone to his ueen is something he resists He comes to appreciate studying the ants and bees on the estate with a female tutor for the Alabaster children Mattie who is a refreshing though androgynous character who strives to surmount gender and class barriers to the playground of knowledge In teaching the household s children about the ways of ants and bees they find a path to write an accessible educational book I loved the fantasy tale she pens from the inspiration Byatt s presentation of the ferment of Victorian thinking about the world and the place of humans in it is wonderfully done It goes far beyond assailing creationist arguments In winding up this ensemble cast of characters with all the sublime Romantic thinking and poetry and the new scientific knowledge of the biological roots of human nature Byatt gets to play the Watchmaker god who walks away It felt playful on her part to let her characters linger on thinking about nature and nuture instinct and predestination that presaged modern formulations and debates on sociobiology from the likes of Stephen Jay Gould E O Wilson and Richard Dawkins William s fascination with the craft in ant slavery and the analogies between individual ant workers and cells in a superorganism makes a warm spot in my heart Mileage from this may vary among other readersSome of my pleasure is biased from the allure ant behavior had for me in childhood which shaped my choice later to become a biologist But I think others out there might feel the brilliance of how her heroes in their uest for knowledge faces down the almost Gothic horror of all the ways of parasitism and dog eat dog brutality in nature Getting the reader to see the proper privileged society through the images and metaphors of insect life was marvelous Its not hard to empathize with Alabaster s reluctance to relinuish the divine sublime of human art and esthetics Here he dwells on his altered responses to a beautiful painting of the Annunciation to Mary by angels with colored wings echoed by butterflies And now all this it as it were erased and there is a black backcloth on an empty stage and I see a chimpanzee with puzzled eyes and a hanging brow and great ugly teeth clutching its hairy offspring to its wrinkled breast and is this love made fleshNo frog no hound even could have a vision of the Angel of Annunciation Where does it all come fromThe second novella makes a wonderful juxtaposition with the first in that the fad of spiritualism and s ances is another form of resistance of Romanticism to the advances of science Mrs Papagay whose husband disappeared at sea is a medium gifted in automatic writing from the minds of the dead while her otherworldly partner Sophie has the second sight to see ghosts and through windows it seems to angels and alien life forms of alternate universes His sister Emily now married to a Captain Jesse wants to use the s ances to communicate with her first beloved her brother s best friend Arthur Hallam who died before their wedding The Tennyson of nature being red in tooth in claw in Morpho Eugenia becomes in The Conjugial Angel a core presence for bravely holding to the immortal ualities of love beauty and the soul Readings of his poems are used to set the mood for the s ances and the ghosts summoned into presence make use of his poetry to communicate Especially Tennyson s In Memoriam which was a response to his 17 years of grief over the death of his beloved friend and fellow poet Arthur Mrs Papagay is endearing both pragmatic and nurturing as well as strong enough to see through the manipulators and users in her circle She recognizes the entertainment value of the parlor tricks often employed in s ance productions but she can t help believing in the reality of Sophie s visions I loved how she handles the lecherous lay minister Mr Hawke who is always pontificating on Swedenborg s views about the afterlife and witnessing of the permanent fusion in heavenly angels between male and female souls as a sexual apotheosis of human love Swedenborg teaches us as you know that conjugial love comes to us all but once that our souls have one mate one perfect other half whom we should seek ceaselessly Swedenborg was the first religious founder to give the expression of sexual delight the central place in heaven that in holds in many of our hearts on earth to divine and to constate that earthly love and Heavenly Love are truly One at their highest This is a noble a daunting understanding of our nature and our one true duty do you not think Better to marry than burn said Mrs Papagay reflectively uoting the gloomy admonition of the misogynist St Paul but thinking of her own state of mind and body Mr Hawke made her aware of her own discreet burning at her sideMrHawke Mrs Papagay thought would theorise if a huge red Cherub with a fiery sword were advancing on him to burn him to the bone he would explain the circumstances whilst the stars fell out of the sky into the sea like ripe figs from a shaken fig tree The s ances conjure up some surprising presences and have significant impacts on the participants lives I loved the way Tennyson s overblown sentimentality gets deflated through the tale Emily in particular comes to realize how her much her brother usurped her own grief effectively making himself the widow to Arthur s death in his epic poem It was she knew and said often the greatest poem of her time And yet she thought in her bursts of private savagery it aimed a burning dart at her very heart it strove to annihilate her and she felt the pain of it and could not speak of that pain to a soulByatt is a charmer in her story telling great on fruitful beginnings surprising but apt in her endings and masterly in her characters development and diversions in the body of her tales We can feel the warmth of compassion for the ones trying to solve life s great problems and a lively amusement in her fools and snobs
