This is “The Long Cellar at Petworth”, one of the many Turners in the Tate Gallery, this one actually bequeathed by the artist. In A Fairly Honourable Defeat Morgan Browne meets Julius King at the Tate at an exhibition of modern sculpture which he describes as absolute junk so they go to look at the Turners and Morgan sits down in front of one of the Petworth interiors. Morgan loves the late Turners. Julius considers them derivative, always copying someone (though one might ask who?). See Iris Murdoch’s People A to Z pp. 357, 446, 462. #irismurdoch #afairlyhonourabledefeat #jmwturner #tategallery #tatebritainlondon #petworthhouse #petworthinteriors #womenwriters #bookstagrammer

Iris Murdoch hitting so close to home. Reading #TheNiceAndTheGood. #IrisMurdoch



• "There are mysterious agencies of the human mind which, like roving gases, travel the world, causing pain and mutilation, without their owners having any full awareness or even any awareness at all, of the strength and the whereabouts of these exhalations. Possibly a saint might be known by the utter absence of such gaseous tentacles, but the ordinary person is naturally endowed with them, just as he is endowed with the ghostly power of appearing in other people's dreams. So it is that we can be terrors to each other, and people in lonely rooms suffer humiliation and even damage because of others in whose consciousness perhaps they scarcely figure at all. Eidola projected from the mind take on a life of their own, wandering to find their victims and maddening them with miseries and fears which the original source of these wanderers could not be justly charged with inflicting and might indeed be very puzzled to hear of."

One of the best parts of my month is when I get together with our Bookclub to discuss great works of female writers like Iris Murdoch's Under the Net. ❤️

📗 #Librodelasemana: “El amor verdadero galopa, vuela, es la más veloz de todas las formas de pensamiento, más veloz incluso que el odio y el miedo”.
.
Se cumplen cien años del nacimiento de #IrisMurdoch (1919-1999), una escritora con una gran formación filosófica que suele plantear en sus novelas cuestiones intelectuales y existenciales de gran calado. Esta profundidad se aprecia también en su estilo, repleto de rotundas y memorables frases.
.
En #Monjasysoldados cuenta los últimos momentos de Guy, un personaje de la aristocracia inglesa, quien le pide a su mujer Gertrude que, tras su muerte, que parece inminente, contraiga de nuevo matrimonio. Guy es un gran intelectual y lo último que está releyendo es "La Odisea", libro con el que el argumento de Murdoch guarda muchas similitudes. Alrededor de los principales protagonistas pululan un sugerente y extravagante número de personajes secundarios que engrandecen el mensaje de la novela.
.
Murdoch realiza un homenaje a las #novelasinglesas decimonónicas, siempre tan interesantes en sus retratos psicológicos, a la vez que incorpora el tono de la literatura de la modernidad. La mezcla es curiosa y refrescante y la novela contiene sabiduría y a la vez inteligentes reflexiones sobre la condición humana. .
LO PUEDES COMPRAR EN LA 📚 LIBRERÍA TROA 📚 DE TU CIUDAD (Madrid, Barcelona, Pamplona, Valencia, Granada, Sevilla, Zaragoza, A Coruña, San Sebastián, Guecho, Getafe, Girona, Castellón) O A TRAVÉS DE LA WEB. ¡BUENA LECTURA! 📖👍 #literaturairlandesa #novelairlandesa

“Time can divorce us from the reality of people, it can separate us from people and turn them into ghosts. Some kinds of fruitless preoccupations with the past can create such simulacra, and they can exercise power, like heroes at Troy fighting for a phantom Helen.” .
.
Several index cards full of notes I took while reading this novel catalogue the parts of it I would want to revisit. For a novel written in the form of a diary, this one seems very thoroughly planned, judging by how many new connections are suddenly discernible even after a casual glance at some of my notes. I get inclined to think, the book is just as much the creation of its fictional author, Charles Arrowby, a retired theatre director and playwright, as its real one. “Drama must create a factitious spell-binding present moment and imprison the spectator in it” is one such quote I can remember hazily as being withdrawn from the context of Arrowby’s meditations on theatre in the first part of the book, yet now it reads as a clear sign for how most of the book is premeditated, for when read forwards this book is an experience. This first part of his diary is written just after Charles decides to retire from his work and live in solitude in a house near the sea, his explicit intention being that of writing his memoir and repenting of his wrongdoings, learning to be good. Any peace acquired in his new location seems ephemeral, the sea and the house seem to conspire to reveal the impossibility of that. His new estate has an eerie aura; it is dark, as dark perhaps as the soul of its new owner, with no electricity. His favourite object in the house is “the luminous and silvery mirror” which “seems like a source of light”. The mirror soon gets smashed into pieces, not by an apparition, but as we learn later, by an actual woman from his life who is only the first of many such characters from the pages of earlier part of his diary who are one by one animated and crowd his life once again (“I am your shadow, you can’t run away from me” is a teasing remark from another character).

Which new-to-you authors have you encountered in 2019?

One of my colleagues loves #IrisMurdoch + when these wonderful @vintagebooks editions came out, Murdoch-mania took over the shop all because of her passion. She recommended I start with #TheBell + I'm pleased to say I liked it!
The Bell follows the relatively infuriating character of Dora, who ends up spending some time at Imber Court, a religious community in the countryside. She is clearly very different from the others in the community + what entails is essentially a quaint (+ enjoyable) soap opera. Murdoch is clearly a very good writer, + I really enjoyed the complexity of the characters whose perspective we hear from. I did struggle slightly when there was a lot of meditation on philosophy + religion, but overall I wasn't discouraged from reading other Murdochs - I just need to decide which one!

Interesting. Just got out of the shower and I haven't really checked out the tattoo on my thigh in a long time. The black was faded (this tattoo is 11 years old). I noticed it looks brighter and bolder. Perhaps since I started working out and I've lost weight, or maybe it's the new health regimen lol?

Amor y amistad. Lealtad y conflictos morales. Tan magistral como siempre, Iris Murdoch ahonda de forma brillante en las aspiraciones y los miedos que experimenta todo ser humano cuando ha de posicionarse ante las situaciones más extremas de la vida. MONJAS Y SOLDADOS es una obra deslumbrante que nos transporta a la elegancia estilística de otra época.

Every year I look forward to Vintage Classics’ new paperback series... and this year they’ve got a range of Iris Murdoch titles for the centenary of her birth!⁣

They’ve been designed by Bijou Karman and are going to be stunning additions to my bookshelf. I think it’s so important to acknowledge the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into making each book cover stand out and shine, and these are perfect examples of beautiful covers. ⁣

I’ve never read any Iris Murdoch before so I’d love to know if you’ve read any of her books and if so, which you think I should start with! I’m spoilt for choice! ⁣

(Not sponsored, I’m just VERY ENTHUSIASTIC about how gorgeous these are!) ⁣

Iris Murdoch - Under the Net. “All the time when I speak to you, even now, I'm saying not precisely what I think, but what will impress you and make you respond. That's so even between us - and how much more it's so where there are stronger motives for deception. In fact, one's so used to this one hardly sees it. The whole language is a machine for making falsehoods.”

🌊 «Море, море» Айрис Мёрдок🌊
Проведя с этой книгой неделю, я наконец поняла прелесть размеренного чтения. А может Мердок и нельзя читать залпом - надо раствориться, посмотреть в небо, перевести дыхание, ибо погружение предстоит максимальное. Атмосфера у романа тягучая-тягучая, но скорее в смысле золотистого густого меда, а не болота. В первой части, когда режиссер, вышедший на пенсию описывает только свои прошлые романы, и то, что ел на обед (о, это особый смак), даже эти детали воспринимаешь как что-то очень значительное, смакуешь и визуализируешь. Написано кстати абсолютно по-мужски, местами даже мизогинично, но с женской глубиной и прозорливостью.

То, что происходит дальше поначалу кажется сном или галлюцинациями, потому что все, кого вспоминал Чарльз неожиданно один за другим появляются на подмостках, как черти из табакерки. И начинают усердно исполнять свои роли. В этой книге вся жизнь от начала и до конца театр, все эти оды Шекспиру не голословны. Тут тебе и бывшие оскорбленные женщины-вамп, и кроткие девочки-пажи и артистичные гомосексуалисты, и взявшиеся из воздуха сыновья и, конечно, первая любовь Чарльза - бессловесная сонная Хартли, в которой никто кроме него уже не видит длинноногую бойкую девочку на велосипеде. И беспощадная антиреклама брака... Взрывоопасное взаимодействие всех этих персонажей рождает какой-то фарс, цирк-шапито, подчиняющийся странной логике абсурда, которая на удивление органично воспринимается. Только Чарльза все почему-то называют манипулятором и предводителем марионеток, а по мне так он не исхитряется и не юлит - прет напролом, как бы иррациональны и недостижимы ни были его желания, вопреки совершенно искореженной картине действительности их с Хартли нынешних отношений.

Особняком, конечно, стоит фигура двородного брата Чарльза - Джеймса. Редко бывает, чтобы герой книги был настолько самобытным, притягательным и загадочным, почти мифическим полубогом. Умница, востоковед, профессиональный разруливатель проблем (причем филигранно и инкогнито, славы героя не ждет). Разве что с Симором Глассом его можно сравнить с прокачанными навыками социализации. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
