CHARACTERS Ó The Merry Month of May READ & DOWNLOAD ↠ BRANDEDSHIRTS.CO à James Jones James Jones à 1 CHARACTERS Elling students' strongholds of the literati the sexual anarchists the leftists written chillingly of a time in French history closely paralleling America in the late '60s The reader sees feels smells and fears all the turmoil of the frig. Bottom Line FirstThe Merry Month MayJames Jones is at his best describing the military aspects of the failed student revolution in May 1968 Paris His place descriptions read like he is seeing them as a military man laying it out for defenseThis revolution serves as a backdrop the action described but not influenced by his main character This could have been a better novel There are several related themes but a lack of cohesion Characters can be sympathetic only to become pathetic and vice versa There is a reveal at the end that almost ruins the entire novel Over all I can recommend The Mary Month of May I cannot enthuse about it It is a novel that can be read for serious entertainment barely and it has enough depth if you care to delve deeperThe Mary Month of May introduces us to Jack Hartley a American Ex Pat living in Paris and editing a Literary Review He has become close to a well off family the Gallaghers He makes it clear this will not be a warm hearted story with a happy endingThe politics throughout are leftist with everyone sympathetic to the Student Revolt Why they should be is never clear What exactly is being revolted against is never made clear To ask the uestion is to label yourself as too old Even so young and old will take side with the students Jack is also a leftist but he never seems to like anyone associated with the movement esp if they are in a position of leadershipIn fact the politics and the student revolt are backdrop But some folks will want to reject or embrace the book just on its superficial politics While we address reasons to like or dislike the book there is a fair amount of rougher language and much casual discussion of sex There are no explicit descriptions of sex and only a few on page sexual encounters The topic of sex is a driving themeBetween the 50 s and 60 s a reoccurring theme in American literature was an apparent belief that some people male or female knew some particular secret Either they had mastered a particular movement or they had an ability to achieve and grant access to some magical level of sexual fulfillment Those who had this secret had special powers over otherwise sane grounded people and so forth This notion is also a major theme in Mary Month of MayReturning to Jack He is an observer He is supposed t know people well and seems like a principled man Yet is seems to be surprised by all of the important things he should know about his closest friends As for principal he fails outright in one early situation He fails his revolutionary friends and mostly prove incapable of either using information or of effecting people who most need itVladimir Nabokov writes that one has to understand the geography of a novel Evan to the point of making or buying maps Jones uses the geography of left bank Paris constantly Jones s use of geography is sometimes better than his ability to write about people The Mary Month of May is a case in point that proves Nabokov s Given the tracking of historic events as a parallel to the main story line Mary Month of May could benefit from full annotation Weathering describing the military aspects of the failed student revolution in May 1968 Paris
