    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorSet and written during World War II Charles Jackson’s “The Fall of Valor” is a masterful work that depicts marital crisis and simmering sexuality at a time when most of us might assume Americans would rather recoil from such frankness But as Jackson highlights the second war in some ways brought sexuality to the American forefront for perhaps the first time John and Ethel Grandin together ten years hope a trip to the seashore might rekindle their troubled marriage But after meeting young honeymooners on the boat to Martha’s Vineyard John becomes obsessed with the groom the handsome a

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorThis was upsetting I know some of you think it's dated but it's not to me Catholic World review I think 1946“The topic is one which might be discussed to the profit of a good many readers were the treatment scientific and decent but this book is neither It is not scientific b

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorFirst published in 1946 this is a very brave and insightful novel A long neglected classic deservingly republished by Valancourt Books I found the exploration of the prevailing attitudes of the characters both male and female very interesting Naivety generalizations of normal behaviour and rigid societal conventions reigned supreme John’s continual doubts about the normalcy of his feelings and the legitimacy of his marriage was particularly perceptiveAs was probably very common at the time men who experienced same sex attraction agonizingly convinced themselves t

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorJackson 1946 novel about love and sexuality reflects the era in which it was set and written in a way that as insightful as it is painful The contrasting and conflicting perceptions about their relationship as told by a husband and wife reveal so much about these distinct characters and truths about intimate relationships universallyThe writing is very ti


  • Mylum

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorAn infuriating read Though it has a history now as a milestone in gay literature I read it in the context of reading Charles Jackson's second novel On a purely sociological note I don't find the novel all that extreme or as the back of the pulp edition I read says a theme even shocking The Beat writers seemed to be doing this stuff late 1940s with way less of the mustiness and lack of humor that Jackson brings to the subject of sexualityAside from sociological concerns the truly infuriating part of the novel lies in its actual prose The first person stream of consciousness style used so well in The Lost Weekend is not to be found Instead we get an awkward limited Third Person Narration where Jackson switches between the thoughts of John Grandin and his wife Ethel Occasionally the he slips from the tightrope of this style and we get intrusions such as this at the end of Chapter XI in the Middle section These and other fantasies aimles

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorI had never read Charles Jackson and only decided to read this book as an early example of LGBT literature My first impression was one of uaint nostalgia for such an old fashioned style of a novel Jackson gives us a marriage that in the course of regular marital discord has to come to terms with the husband’s budding bisexuality Despite this seemingly simple premise Jackson is able to develop both characters so beautifully that the reader cannot help but empathize with both of them and their view of the new development Likewise Jackson’s treatment of the husband’s gradual realization of his feelings towards another man gives us a beautiful insight into the confusing and conflict ridden moment in which he comes to terms with his own sexuality While Jackson’s fall into the clichéd violent ending of all LGBT novels of the era is a little disappointing the overall novel

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorThe style and observation are fantastic the notes on late coming out from a marriage that should never have happened are unfortunately perfect and the book is a landmark of ueer literary history This is all somewhat undone by a classical — and somewhat curt and cursory — pulp ending You don’t read Jackson for fun but there are moments in here that make it achingly obvious that he was an unlucky man and would have had a radically different life if he’d lived to see the gay liberation movement His thoughts on ueerness and the Second World War anticipate a lot of what Allan Berube would write forty years later and t


  • Martin

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorThis book is interesting as a dated period piece about a college professors attraction to a handsome marine captain during World War II It captures the period well and adds commentary to civilians versus the miliatry during wartime It is a slow read until the last third of the book which races towards the inevitable conclusion Well worth the read for people interested in pre Stonewall LGTB CULTURE

    The Fall of Valor Review Ê 6 The Fall of ValorI found this novel to be a daring and beautifully written description of what it was like to discover that one is gay at a time when it was very much not OK in this case in the midst of World War II The story is a heartbreaking oneAnd the characters painfully true to themselves and to the time The ending is profoundly sad but again rings true in my estimation It is too bad this is out of print
