Wise Blood Flannery O’Connor’s astonishing and haunting first novel is a classic of twentieth century literature It is a story of Hazel Motes a twenty two year old caught in an unending struggle against his innate desperate faith He falls under the spell of a blind street preacher named Asa Ha Oh Jesus I feel compelled to cry out thus involuntarily showing my cultural heritage that comes out in everyday language despite growing up and living among atheists without any relation to the creation myths of Christianity This book is horrible and very very well written Describing the ugly reality of a young man Hazel Motes who is deeply tainted by the moral preaching of a church he tries to shake off it offers a panorama of confused scared aggressive people They all try to make their own ideas valid by forcing them upon others using the persuasive abusive violent vocabulary of missionary Christianity as well as its notion that there is only one truth in the world and they themselves are in possession of it and have every right to impose it on others and even commit crimes as long as they are within the realm of their convictionThe intention of the novel evades me Does the author want to show the hollow and and immoral essence of religion? Or of atheism? It is populated with people who are too narrow minded to see than two possibilities Church of Christ or Church Without Christ In both scenarios the definitions of sin redemption preaching and mission stay the same as do the means to spread the Anti Church’s messages Hazel Motes is convinced to be an atheist but he in fact creates an exact mirror of the religion within which he was growing up Sadly that means he is not free at all but retains everything he rejects in a negative affirmationWhen catastrophe occurs it leaves me sad seeing an eternal vicious circle of angry righteous people continuing to pester each other with Christianity’s arrogant absolutism or its antithesis In a way it reminded me of Marilynne Robinson’s Home a novel written in beautiful prose delivering realistic portraits of people who do not see that it is possible not only NOT to believe in Christianity’s dogma but also to be uite happy and free of guilt outside its limits In Robinson’s as in O’Connor’s world you can be an atheist but you are a distinctly CHRISTIAN atheist committing the SIN of NON BELIEF and you stay within the boundaries of Christianity’s ancient morality and mythical foundations There is an implication of ethical failure in atheism You are surely marked by hell even if you do not believe in it In Home the main character keeps apologising incessantly for not living up to the Christian values and in Wise Blood Hazel Motes lives Christianity by challenging its teachings like a two year old doing exactly what mummy told him not to doFor me it was hard to identify with that mindset but I do acknowledge the irony and wit with which the author illustrated a uite common scenario within monolithic monotheistic communities No real detachment is possible from a religion that has immersed itself in every single facet of daily life and even in the language used to describe feelingsI listened to an outstanding audio book version and sometimes the aggressive shouting and yelling became almost unbearable making the latent violence in the characters evident still than if I had read it silently skimming through the rantsAs for the comical effects I could not enjoy them having seen too much demagoguery and cheap propaganda work out beautifully in the past couple of years Too dangerous at the moment to be funny Maybe I will change my mind about that

Wise BloodWks and his degenerate fifteen year old daughter Lily Sabbath In an ironic malicious gesture of his own non faith and to prove himself a greater cynic than Hawkes Hazel Motes founds The Church of God Without Christ but is still thwarted in his efforts to lose God He meets Enoch Emery a young man w Reading Road Trip 2020Current location Tennessee“I don't have to run from anything because I don't believe in anything”I did a lot of babysitting in the mid 80s I was a young teen not dating yet and I was enad with children Families who wanted me as their sitter would freuently try and secure me for that coveted Saturday night date night by offering all types of perks The family that finally earned my loyalty for that regular Saturday night commitment for several years was the one that offered two children who went to bed easily a fresh box of my favorite type of Entenmann's doughnuts and HBOTo be honest the doughnuts and the premium movie channel were all I wanted I wasn't even interested in my hourly pay As soon as those little darlings would rub their eyes and head to bed I'd grab one perfectly formed chocolate glazed doughnut then curl up in my favorite recliner and tune in to 2 4 hours of soft porn inappropriate stand up routines and vulgar comedies God it was heavenIt was there on that recliner that I first discovered Porky's then Porky's Revenge The Last American Virgin and Fast Times at Ridgemont High among others Not to mention Steve Martin Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor Then one night it was there on that recliner that I mistakenly discovered Looking for Mr GoodbarI remember it all too well I thought I had signed up for a fun evening of full frontal nudity and some groovy disco moves but instead I got the end of the world as I knew itInnocence lost forever PoofI swear to you I remember exactly how I was sitting up rigid on that brown recliner chair when my employers entered the room to drive me homeI didn't talk to them was unable to focus on the money they gave me and I couldn't close my eyes to sleep properly for days Before that movie I hadn't known that life could be so cruel for some people so violent or shocking I hadn't known that a man could ever do to a woman what that man did to that woman in Goodbar based on a true story by the wayIt's devastating but true our society has sociopaths peppered throughout it Some are just malcontents and misanthropes but others are rapists and killers with zero conscienceAnd sorry to tell you folks but most of these types are men Annie Proulx and Alice Walker write about these men so they've either known than their share or their experiences here on earth have influenced their visionBut who would have guessed that a young woman named Flannery O'Connor knew about these types of men already in 1949 and had the chops to write about them?Damn it Ms O'Connor Just thinking about you handing this to your editor at the age of 27 at the end of the 1940s makes me shakeI could feel the power of the story from the first page and I could sense intuitively the influence that this 236 page book has had on both modern novel writing and filmmakingThis is a startling and terrifying story filled with sociopaths all and only two missteps at the novel's end reduced it from a five to a four star read for me But truly it is almost perfectI can not recommend it enough to all writers and riders of the edge
