    PDF/EPUB John Updike · PDF/EPUB The Centaur ePUB ✓ · stroyki.pro centaur book, The Centaur PDF/EPUBIn this modern retelling of ancient Greek myth à la Joyce's Ulysses Updike presents us with the famed myth of Chiron the centaur Set in late 40s small town America we have the stories of George Caldwell a teacher in his 50s and his son Peter 15 years old and laden with psoriasis The father's and son's narratives switch every second chapter with the father's narrative being in the third person and the son's in first personThe narratives that we are presented with can be read as coming of age stories The son coming of age and facing the harsh reality of life and the father coming of age and facing the harsh reality of death Upd

    PDF/EPUB John Updike · PDF/EPUB The Centaur ePUB ✓ · stroyki.pro centaur book, The Centaur PDF/EPUBThis book is sadly underrated among Updike's oeuvre I think it's his best literary accomplishment The Centaur is both a distorted modernized retelling of the myth of Chiron and a moving story of a father and son The prose is dense and rich heavy with classical illusion; this isn't the easiest read but it's worth the work Updike's erudition and his gorgeous way with a sentence are on display here to a degree unmatched by any of his other work

    PDF/EPUB John Updike · PDF/EPUB The Centaur ePUB ✓ · stroyki.pro centaur book, The Centaur PDF/EPUBUpdike certainly has a uniue prose style that is enjoyable The fatherson interchange fell flat in part it felt because of the attempt to tie the story into a broader mythological realm Maybe it worked better back in the day but the story seventy years in the past didn't seem to have the same universality as the mythology upon which it was loosely based
