Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Maggie Moran's mission is to connect and unite people, whether they want to be united or not. Maggie is a meddler and as she and her husband, Ira, drive 90 miles to the funeral of an old friend, Ira contemplates his wasted life and the traffic, while Maggie hatches a plant to reunite her son Jesse with his long-estranged wife and baby. As Ira explains, "She thinks the people she loves are better than they really are, and so then she starts changing things around to suit her view of them." Though everyone criticizes her for being "ordinary," Maggie's ability to see the beauty and potential in others ultimately proves that she is the only one fighting the resignation they all fear. The book captured the Pulitzer Prize for literature in 1989. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
Anne Tyler's book Breathing Lessons uses countless motifs to convey her message that no human being is perfect, nor is any relationship ideal. It tells the story of Maggie and Ira Moran, involved in a relationship that has gone stale after 28 years of marriage. Maggie, depicted with the repeated "frizz" motif, is characterized by her ditsy, scatterbrained personality. She tries in vain throughout the whole novel to selflessly mend everyone's problems, mainly in efforts to save her son's marriage. Ira, her pessimistic, chiding husband simply engrosses himself in negative views about the "wasteful" human race and avoids Maggie if possible, otherwise remains quietly tolerant of her extremely obnoxious chatter. Even Maggie describes him as "one of those people who are born competent" (Tyler, 234.) The basic plot includes the couple's trip to an old friend's funeral, their insignificant adventures along the way, and a flashback to earlier years during their marriage. Although the flashback section tends to get tedious and wordy, it includes some of life's most meaningful lessons. It depicts the Moran's son Jesse's devotion to his wife and child after living a contrasting rebellious teenage life (continually symbolized by a "black" motif). Mainly, the book is packed full of the contrasting views of Maggie, the idealist who sees everyone with good intentions and pure hearts, and Ira, the realist who sadly often sees things in the sad state they truly are in. The motifs "hot" and "sticky" are used to foreshadow arguments betweeen the two. Their optimistic/pessimistic views are the main spark for their arguments, though it is also what keeps their marriage alive.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

For the last two weeks I have been reading, "Breathing Lessons," by Anne Tylor. This book talks about a married couple's life and how they view little everyday events that happen. Feelings of the Morans marriage sucks the reader into own life and individual thoughts. Anne Tylor takes you the lets your feelings become involved when reading this 324 pgae book. This book starts around the 80's in Balitmore. it's a small town where everyone seems to be involved in everybody else's life. Maggie and her husband, Ira, have been married for around 20 years or so. Each have thier different ways of thinking. They argue everyday like most couples do, but as they argue, the reader finds themselves taking sides on who is right. Little everyday words are taken in as the reader reads and strikes a different meaning. "Ah, God, I have been stuck with these people all my life. and I'm never going to be free." Pg. 165 Frases so often spoken by ourselves, but never seem to love what we have around ourselves. We as people don't realize enough with our busy life. The cover of this book illisrates a flying bird over a green plain. The only thing a person could think of when seeing this cover is to think of being free from life's pressures. To once in life, take a step back from our busy sheldules and enjoy life. This book to me wasn't the best book I have ever read because I think this book was written for adults. I am a teen and wouldn't recommend it to other teens. I couldn't relate much and the story to me was a bit boring. Little flashbacks and car trips only made this reading process longer.

I've read ten of Anne Tyler's novels, and this is by far my least favorite. Arguably her most anomalous because (a) It's not entirely set in B'more, and (b) it's the only Anne Tyler I'm aware of where a house or similar building does _not_ play a significant part in the story. A device in which Ms. Tyler loves to load up with heaps of junk or curious mementoes to flesh out a Macon Leary, the Tulls, or more recently _Patchwork Planet's_ Barnaby, who finds links to his past in (a splendid variation) the attics of other people's houses.
Anne Tyler's other motif is the notion of people becoming caste at some point in their lives, and that's definitely here too in the form of a bickering middle-aged couple stuck on the road in a beat-up car. And that's it. Making this book for a longer ride than expected.
The prose is unmistakably hers, but I'm shocked that this is her Pulitzer Prize winner, which makes me think she was given the award belatedly for her chronologically previous novels, _Accidental Tourist_ and _Dinner At The Homesick Restaurant_, which for the majority of Anne Tyler fans are generally considered two of her best novels.

As I was reading others' reactions to this novel, I found that many complained about Maggie's annoying character and how her scatterbrainedness seemed to detract from the story. Although I have to agree that this character enraged me at points in the story, I would also like to inform these critics that IF AN AUTHOR CAN CHARACTERIZE A PERSON IN THE STORY SO WELL THAT A READER IS REPULSED BY HER, SHE CERTAINLY DESERVES RECOGNITION, and this is the conclusion I have come to in my process of assessing this novel for my English class. Yes, it went slow; yes, the characters were sometimes aggravating. But Tyler's books are some of the most skillfully written which I have ever had the experience of reading. She reinforces the sacred institution that marriage is, gives us a model in Ira's patience, and shows us how important a person at whom you can, as Serena told Maggie, steal a glance when others are bothering you and you can't complain out loud. Rather than complaining because this book isn't the shallow, exciting "story" that typical readers expect, let's praise Anne Tyler for her skill.
