    MOBI Philip Roth Ö The Humbling Epub ✓ Ö humbling free, The Humbling PDF/EPUBNot the strongest Roth book nor the most positive the story of Simon Axler's loss of his phenomenal acting skills and subseuent descent his Humbling is still a compelling one It is classic Roth in its extraordinarily evocative text and dialogs how he expresses inner torment the sexual passages and his cynical view on life It is nonetheless uite depressing and hardly as good as Everyman or Indignation It is still a good read and now I shall read the last book of the tetralogy his very last book NemesisRIP 1933 2018 One of America's literary giants has left us

    MOBI Philip Roth Ö The Humbling Epub ✓ Ö humbling free, The Humbling PDF/EPUBUpon rereading I found this book engrossing than before Upgraded rating from 3 to 4Why? I liked the strong emotional core There is usually an influx of emotion and logic in Roth's books In this one the emotional fragility of characters is pronounced The fragility of strained relationships is par for the course for literary fiction of all stripes and this is not the first time I've seen the washed up actor character trope used but it it fits in well with Roth's preoccupation with older men sleeping with younger women It's got all the grab bag elements from his oeuvre sickness lack of mental stability people going through the motions losing the edge losing the battle against aging society's expectations being too high succumbing to sensual obsessions art drama and a touch of dreadOur main character Axler gets locked in his role as an old America

    MOBI Philip Roth Ö The Humbling Epub ✓ Ö humbling free, The Humbling PDF/EPUBA famous 60 something classical actor loses his acting ability and becomes suicidal then takes up with the 40 year old lesbian daughter of some mutual friends and they embark on some kinky sex I guess she was just waiting for an older man to “turn” her straight in this brief slight novel by one of America’s best novelists Seriously a few weeks ago I read American Pastoral and came away thinking it one of the most powerful novels of the past uarter centuryI was initially interested in the idea of an actor losing his or her powers – like a thespian Prospero a role that’s evoked early on – but Roth doesn’t follow through with this theme The opening section partly set in a psychiatric hospital is intriguing

    MOBI Philip Roth Ö The Humbling Epub ✓ Ö humbling free, The Humbling PDF/EPUBabout one simon axler a world renowned stage actor who is humbled by the fact that he's lost his gift he doesn't know how to play a scene his timing is off the words come out sounding false he cannot get out of his mind and lose himself in the role so he lays around his house in the woods and contemplates suicide 'all the world's a stage'identityand other important themes aside what is interesting here and what i suspect certain reviewers will write about upon the release of this book is how 'meta' roth is getting he's always been pretty biographical sure but i for one feel roth like simon axler has lost his touch is the humbling a cry for help? a literary suicide letter? approached in that light the book is certainly made interesting well i love the old coot as flawed as parts might be particularly the third volume his USA trilogy is for my money as astonishing and revealing about the latter half of the american century as dos passos's trilogy was for the first
