"Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch -- "Scout"--Returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise's homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in a painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past -- a journey that can be guided only by one's conscience. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision -- a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic." -- Book jacket.… (mais)

    To Kill a Mockingbird por Harper Lee (JuliaMaria, KayCliff)
    JuliaMaria: Harper Lee hat nur zwei Bücher veröffentlicht. Das zweite - "Gehe hin, stelle einen Wächter" - erst mit 90 Jahren - auch wenn es schon früher geschrieben wurde. Es war die literarische Sensation des Jahres 2015.

They are captivating, character-driven cameos representing society as a whole.… (mais)

I can't tell if this is bitter medicine or pure poison. It's all in the dosage, and I'm not certain if this one was measured correctly.

Really, there are a lot of uncertainties to this book. Not in the text itself, which presents a terribly clear picture of racism and the justifications made to support it, but in the troubled questions that surrounded its publication. As a literary artifact this story is fascinating, especially if the contention that this was an earlier draft of Mockingbird is true-- it certainly reads like Harper Lee, but an angrier and more depressed Lee. The story it tells is much different, however, and I wonder how this became that earlier published, later written work.

The story of Watchman is difficult to read, but perhaps that was part of why it is worth reading. There were happy anecdotes from Scout Finch's adolescence, interspersed and offsetting the terrible sense of betrayal the story centers upon. Seeing Atticus turn out to be a racist distressed me, but I can not flinch away from every book that disturbs me.

Was there something vaguely problematic with the way Atticus Finch's character has been set upon a pedestal by literary culture? Definitely. Does the story here, about growing up to discover the flaws of one's family, loved ones, culture, resonate? Oh yes. Except there was something beautiful about moral Atticus Finch, seen through the worshiping eyes of his children. And yes, growing up involves discovering the flaws within our heroes, but it seems terrible to have that beauty torn down into ugliness.

And yet, and yet... "Why didn't you hit me instead? For God's sake, Atticus!" ( )
  MCBacon | Aug 2, 2021 |
I'm not going to rate this book, because I don't think it's fair to rate Go Set a Watchman purely on literary merit. I've always been divided on whether To Kill a Mockingbird is a great book, or one that salves our consciences with clear moral simplicity. Go Set a Watchman makes To Kill a Mockingbird a better book--not in some damning with faint praise way, but by granting it moral complexity. Mockingbird is the lens of the six year old Scout, a girl who idolizes her father and can see no fault. Watchman is the 26 year old Jean Louise, an angry young woman trying to understand the people she thought she knew.

Watchman is clearly a draft, and given the circumstances of its publication, I feel uncomfortable critiquing it. That isn't to say it's a bad novel. It has flaws (such as several sections of overly talky dialogue) but these are things that could have been reworked. It's worth reading for understanding how the bones of Mockingbird came to be.

It really makes you wonder when you read this what people would have thought if it had been published in the 1950's when it was written instead of 2015. and what if this novel had come first. Would anyone have even looked at "To Kill A Mockingbird". Overall, this book was not what I expected. ( )

And so beneath Atticus’s style of enlightenment is a kind of bigotry that could not recognize itself as such at the time. The historical and human fallacies of the Agrarian ideology hardly need to be rehearsed now, but it should be said that these views were not regarded as ridiculous by intellectuals at the time. Indeed, Jean Louise/Lee herself, though passionately opposed to what her uncle and her father are saying, nevertheless accepts the general terms of the debate as the right ones.

Go Set a Watchman is a troubling confusion of a novel, politically and artistically, beginning with its fishy origin story. .. I ached for this adult Scout: The civil rights movement may be gathering force, but the second women's movement hasn't happened yet. I wanted to transport Scout to our own time — take her to a performance of Fun Home on Broadway — to know that, if she could only hang on, the possibilities for nonconforming tomboys will open up. Lee herself, writing in the 1950s, lacks the language and social imagination to fully develop this potentially powerful theme.

Despite the boldness and bravery of its politics, Go Set a Watchman is a very rough diamond in literary terms … it is a book of enormous literary interest, and questionable literary merit.
adicionada por Widsith | editarThe Independent, Arifa Akbar (Jul 13, 2015)
 
It is, in most respects, a new work, and a pleasure, revelation and genuine literary event, akin to the discovery of extra sections from T S Eliot’s The Waste Land or a missing act from Hamlet hinting that the prince may have killed his father.
adicionada por Widsith | editarThe Guardian, Mark Lawson (Jul 12, 2015)
 
Watchman is both a painful complication of Harper Lee’s beloved book and a confirmation that a novel read widely by schoolchildren is far more bitter than sweet. Watchman is alienating from the very start.

"Every man's island, Jean Louise, every man's watchman, is his conscience." "There is no such thing as a collective conscious".
"Aunty," she said, cordially, "why don't you go pee in your hat?"
I need a watchman to lead me around and declare what he seeth every hour on the hour.  I need a watchman to tell me this is what a man says but this is what he means, to draw a line down the middle and say here is this justice and there is that justice and make me understand the difference. I need a watchman to go forth and proclaim to them all that twenty-six years is too long to play a joke on anybody, no matter how funny it is.
I was taught never to take advantage of anybody who was less fortunate than myself, whether he be less fortunate in brains, wealth, or social position; it meant anybody, not just Negroes. I was given to understand that the reverse was to be despised. That is the way I was raised, by a black woman and a white man.
I detest the sound of it as much as its matter
