Home John Barth The Floating Opera. The floating opera, . For one thing, it made me appear mysterious, standing aloof in a bay window, smoking a cigarette with an air of quiet wisdom while all around me the party screamed and giggled. Some quite pleasant people, Harrison Mack among them, reasoned that I must have answers that they lacked, and sought me out; women thought me charmingly shy, and sometimes stopped at nothing to penetrate the disdainful shell of my fear, as one of their number put it. I opened my eyes and bottle, then, and took a good pull, shook all over from head to toe, and looked at my room.

Why The floating opera? Well, that's part of the name of a showboat that used to travel around the Virginia and Maryland tidewater areas, and some of this book happens aboard i. .It always seemed a fine idea to me to build a showboat with just one big flat open deck on it, and to keep a play going continuously. The boat wouldn't be moored, but would drift up and down the river on the tide, and the audience would sit along both banks. They could catch whatever part of plot happened to unfold as the boat floated past, and then they'd have to wait until the tide ran back.
I'm trying to read a series of books that will help me to overcome nihilism, if that is at all possible, or at least try to live and be at peace with the banality of everything. Pick this up if you're interested in the same. все комментарии (1). сортировка: лучшее.
