JourneyA sweeping and tumultuous story of an injured American civil war soldier who goes AWOL and makes a relentless and dangerous journey back home to Cold Mountain and to the woman he intends spending the rest of his life with As poetic as Homer s Odyssey Charles Frazier s Cold Mountain is an outstanding literary masterpiece He tells the story of Inman and Ada their past people they meet on their travels the challenges they face and the dreams they hold dear A physical journey home and a journey of personal development eually captivating eually precarious and eually drawing the story to a climactic ending With a magician s hand Frazier keeps us spellbound with the central story while conjuring wisps of literary tales from Greek Roman and English literature and weaving them into the narrative with the effortless hand of an illusionist Frazier is never obvious with the content of his story even though Odysseus journey back from the Trojan War to his wife Penelope in Ithaca reverberates throughout this novel This is not about a modern retelling of the Odyssey but rather enticing us to explore how the ancient folklore has been reshaped to provide a uniue clever and agonising alternative Within the narrative we catch faded echoes of exotic characters such as Witches Sirens Cyclopes Persephone Calypso Cerberus Narcissus but their behaviour may or may not follow an expected path but it will always be imaginatively realisedInman battles elements of nature as he travels through the winter cold wet hungry and at times disorientated He is an honest man and often reflects the wrong a man does flies back at him As a soldier he has seen horrors and been part of those horrors but he approaches every situation with a positive intent that fairness will be done Sometimes kindness is repaid and sometimes it is manipulated against him Regardless Inman must face all his trials as he descends through the levels of hell who knows maybe there are nine of them and Dante makes an appearance as wellAda is joined by Ruby as she now tries to make her farm operational following the death of her father A lady of leisure Ada must now face a harsh reality and journey through the challenges of hard work growing crops raising livestock fixing fences and trading for goods Ruby is accomplished at this type of work and bluntly forces Ada to play her part in this endeavour Ada now goes to bed tired and physically exhausted and her outward appearance changes to sun drenched skin rough skinned hands and practical work clothesFrazier places nature as a constant reference point and uses it with distinguished ardour Elements of birds and trees add deeper appreciation of the signs nature is constantly presenting to us Nature with its mythical connections gives Frazier another wand to magically enthral usThis was a first buddy read with Julie and it was a joy to take our time and discuss the links and decipher the meaning of various scenes I am full of admiration for Charles Frazier after devouring his epic piece of work and I would highly recommend reading the book Another addition to my Top 10 books of all time

You ve probably seen the movie made from this bookIt was a fine movie It won OscarsBut it cannot begin to capture the truly spectacular parts of this story because they are not the surface level narratives that make it onto the big screenBefore you can truly appreciate the uality of this book you need to be familiar with at least Homer s Odyssey Dante s Inferno and parts of the Bible You need to be on guard for a depth of symbolism and complexity of foreshadowing and allusion that will boggle your mindI always knew the movie didn t really get the book but when my dad who has not read the book referred to it as a chick flick because he thought of it primarily as a love story which it is but not that kind then I really realized what one misses when one has not read the book

Reading Road Trip 2020Current location North Carolina he held to the idea of another world a better place and he figured he might as well consider Cold Mountain to be the location of it as anywhereLike Inman I have been trying to get to Cold Mountain for years now My original inspiration came from a family of beloved Tar Heel next door neighbors who introduced me to sweet tea red velvet cake and unhurried speech They made homemade ice cream in the summers while standing on the patio in bare feet and they produced vegetables from soil the color of coffee grounds while the rest of us stared down at the Florida sand knowing that nothing would grow thereThe Tar Heel husband of this family would alternately love on his wife in a demonstrative way I had never witnessed before then occasionally produce a gun after too much moonshine and wave it menacingly in the air terrifying his wife and all three daughters Somehow order would always be restored the next day I have always known that these were my peopleI have flirted with a move to North Carolina at several different junctures of my adult life but the closest I have come to making that move is now Now or accurately this summer And now well you know The damned pandemic The thing that is upsetting the natural course of our daily lives our dreams our plans our euilibrium too But though it is true that every age considers the world to be in a precarious state at the very edge of dark we are being threatened with something that so many others who have walked before us have faced pandemics wars depressions recessions tyrannical leaders natural disastersSo my plans are on hold Like Inman s Like Ada s Like Ruby s Like Stobrod s But we keep on planning and we keep on dreaming even if we do look up as Inman does and think sometimes God if I could sprout wings and fly I would be gone from this place my great wings bearing me up and out long feathers hissing in the windOne foot after the other foot after the other foot after the other footIt hurts So much of it hurts and you d be hard pressed to say which hurts the physical or emotional pain but pain goes eventually and when it s gone there s no lasting memory Not the worst of it anyway It fades Our minds aren t made to hold on to the particulars of pain the way we do blissAnd so we continue walking because like Inman most of us can see that there is little usefulness in speculating much on what a day will bringWe walk and we rejoice that we are readers and we know that a book may provide a holiness of such richness that one might dip into it at random and read only one sentence and yet be sure of finding instruction and delightAnd it is good so very good to be reminded of how much others have suffered here and how much solace holy words wherever we find them may provide us and how often we can delight in natural beauty And it is so good so very good to have reminders to look around us at what is precious to us and conjure the poetry of our lives the words of spells and incantations to ward off the things one fears mostFor just as Odysseus was pushed by a great gale as soon as he was within sight of home so will you be pushed away from goals and dreams and loved ones For just as Inman is captured and tied and dragged back over all the terrain he has already traveled so will you be waylaid and rerouted and brokenBut you ve got to keep on walking straight as the crow flies regardless of what happens to you on your journey You ve got to keep crawling toward your Cold Mountain keep it always in front of you
