review Death in the Woods: Stories

Death in the Woods: Stories review Ä 0 read & download Ô PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook à Sherwood Anderson To the heart of America where an introspective man desolate and lonely as the landscape uestions the meaning of his worldCover design by Golda LaurensCover illustration by Judy Pederson Description from back coverIncludes the following storiesDeat. A Death in the Woods the title story of his 1933 anthology of short fiction is generally considered Anderson s finest and most characteristic short story In it an unnamed narrator is haunted by a memory from his childhood In an attempt to understand the enigmatic incident he returns to the story again and again seeming to circle closer to the truth with each telling In composing A Death in the Woods Anderson went through a similar process Although the story was published in 1933 Anderson had begun working on it at least seventeen years earlier A ten page typewritten fragment on the reverse side of which Anderson had drafted a portion ofWinesburg Ohio sketches out several key elements of A Death in the Woods including a narrator who witnesses an eerie scene one snowy moonlit night involving a pack of dogs who circle around the corpse of a dead woman bearing a pack of food He completed various other sketches and drafts in the years between the first fragment and final publicationAlthough A Death in the Woods is ostensibly about the life and death of Mrs Grimes it is probably appropriate to say that the short story s true subject is the narrator s own growth and development as an artist The old woman s death is a kind of artistic initiation as the image of the corpse triggered an intense aesthetic reaction in the young boy To him the body was a beautiful object like a white and lovely marble statue than the shell of a formerly living human being Years later the image continues to fascinate and trouble him Dissatisfied with the way his brother told the story when they were children the mature narrator now tells the story again He struggles to discern patterns and meaning in the factual details What he doesn t know he invents using his personal memories and experiences even those unconnected to Mrs Grimes herself to fill out his fictionsIn his attempt to understand how the sight of the old woman s corpse has managed to exert such a strong mystical power over his imagination the narrator blends fact memory and invention to create a work of art namely the short story A Death in the Woods Just as the narrator reveals about himself than about Mrs Grimes the true subject of A Death in the Woods is the short story s own creation not the titular eventThroughout her life beginning with the Germans and continuing through her married life and on through her death the old woman s energies were entirely focused on procuring food for the men and animals under her care In its mindless relentlessness the woman s situation represents a cruel parody of motherhood Mothers and by extension women are expected to be nurturing and nourishing figures but this woman s role has been limited to the simple biological task of feeding without any of the positive emotional or spiritual elements generally attached to the maternal role Near the end of the story the narrator claims that the woman was the one destined to feed animal life The assertion that Mrs Grimes was inherently destined to lead such an existence is debatable but it is clear that the harsh events of her life have reduced her to this state The story goes on to suggest that all women may at some point have to take up the role of feeder as the narrator notes that if he and his brother arrive home late after viewing the dead woman s body either our mother or our older sister would have to warm up our supper Circles which appear throughout the story help develop the story s mystical spiritual aspects On her way back to the farm the old woman happens upon a round clearing in the woods Despite the approaching darkness the woman lays down to rest an action that seems even stranger given the fact that we have never seen her rest before indeed her life thus far has been one of painful slow perpetual motion The feeling that the story has reached an uncanny mysterious crux is heightened when the pack of dogs begins running in circles around the woman s sleeping form The dogs revert to primitive instinctual behavior performing what the narrator calls a kind of death ceremony The round clearing in the woods and the ceremonial circular movements become part of a strange ritual the precise meaning of which eludes the narrator although it seems to imply both a purification and blessing of the dead woman Years later when attempting to make sense of the cryptic event the story he tells is circular as well Rather than recounting the events in a straightforward linear fashion A Death in the Woods continually doubles back on itself moving back and forth in time and between perspectives as the narrator finds himself returning repeatedly to the mysterious event from his childhoodEach of the most noteworthy people and moments in A Death in the Woods are characterized by their pervasive silence When the old woman dies in the clearing for example the eerie uiet that hangs over the scene not to mention the townsmen s stunned reverential silence heightens both the mystery and the significance of the moment Similarly it is partially because of Mrs Grimes s lifelong muteness that the narrator finds himself attracted to her in the first place On one level it emphasizes her dramatically harsh life and pathetic separation from the rest of human society two elements that make the old woman a compelling and rich character Yet her silence also creates an aura of mystery around her The character of Mrs Grimes doesn t speak in the story just as her dead body will not metaphorically speak to the narrator when he wishes to discover its secret essential meaning It is the silence of both the character and the corpse that the narrator finds so provocative and that prompts him to ritually retell the tale of the A Death in the Woods As the narrator constructs his version of the events nearly all the characters become silent ones There is little directly uoted dialogue in this story When characters appear to speak their dialogue is generally revealed to be an internal monologue that the narrator has conjectured and placed within uotation marks Like an oral storyteller who acts out all the voices in a given tale the narrator speaks for all the people in this story The only character who has any true uoted dialogue is the rabbit hunter who erroneously describes the woman s corpse to the search party The narrator makes this single exception so that he can then go on to discredit the hunter s report just as he will later reject his brother s version of the night s events asserting his own tale as the truest most accurate portrayal of the story
