"Go Set a Watchman is such an important book, perhaps the most important novel on race to come out of the white South in decades." ?? New York Times

A landmark novel by Harper Lee, set two decades after her beloved Pulitzer Prize??winning masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird.

Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch??"Scout"??returns home to Maycomb, Alabama 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 painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past??a journey that can only be guided by one's own conscience.

Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of the late 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 Amer… (mais)

Etwas wenig Story und viel (Rassen-)Politik. Ich mag aber die humorvolle Schreibweise sehr! ( )
  Katzenkindliest | Apr 23, 2024 |
Written in a slow, simple and dated style from the point of view of Scout, who is now grown up (early 20s). Couldn't get past p.75. Nothing much has happened yet, as we are slowly acquainted with what happened to everyone in the intervening years. ( )

Some spoilers, though not a lot of detail

Several reviewers, whose opinions of this book were not favorable--and even negative, apparently do not quite understand what life in the South was and is like for both whites and blacks.

The book begins with Jean Louise (Scout) Finch makes her annual pilgrimage home to Maycomb, Alabama from New York City by train. She is excited to come back to her childhood, though with the death of her brother Jem two years before, nothing is quite the same at it was. There is an ice cream parlor where the old house stood, Calpurnia has retired and gone to live with her people on the black side of town, and Scout's father, Atticus, in his seventies, has more bad days than good, afflicted with the rheumatism.

While Atticus' sister has come to live with him, and his brother, the eccentric doctor who only reads Victorian novels but is much more intelligent and wise than he lets on, lives in town, Jean Louise is still made to feel that she should come home and take care of Atticus, and in the meantime get married into an old respectable Maycomb family (and not the long-time friend and "boyfriend"). She has resisted, not because she doesn't want to do those things, but because she doesn't want anyone to tell her to do those things.

In the course of this story, Jean Louise eventually comes to realize that her father is human, that the way of life that she grew up with was, while not a lie, certainly not the truth. This is a picture of a woman who has to come to terms with having had a liberal upbringing while living in a very conservative state. She is a woman who has clung to her childhood fantasies of who her father is, who her friends are, and what her town represents. In Go Set a Watchman, an adult Jean Louise Finch grows up.

For fans of To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman is definitely written in the same style. There were many questions of the book's authenticity because of it's recent controversy, but regardless of this or whether Ms. Lee actually wanted to have it published, it is still an entertaining and thoroughly thoughtful read. The reader gets a sense of the Old South, just after World War II but before the extreme racial tensions of the 1960's. That was a time of another "Red Scare," of Communists hiding behind every tree and recruiting the black population to their cause behind the backs of whites in their communities. It was a time when people were becoming disenchanted with their government. No longer was the President of the United States revered--that seemed to die with FDR. No longer were people able to trust their government, what with Senator Joseph McCarthy in his waning years as a witch-hunter. And to top it off, it appeared that the Supreme Court was going the way of Abraham Lincoln and totally disregarding states' rights with their laws requiring desegregation. Jean Louise herself finds fault in the way the Supreme Court handled the desegregation filing by the NAACP, stating that it was in violation of the Tenth Amendment, which says, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Despite her misgivings, she believes that the law had to be made. That desegregation would eventually happen, though it needed to happen in its own time, when everyone, whites and blacks, were ready. Her disenchantment with Atticus comes from finding out that he agreed with her on the one hand, but completely disagreed with her stance that it needed to occur at all.

This is a really difficult book to come to terms with. For those who live in the South, both black and white, this certainly hits home. These same tensions described here are the same as we are feeling today. Is it a coincidence that the book was released during a time of racial turmoil all over the country? Perhaps, but perhaps not. We may never know.

Inizierò questa recensione in maniera piuttosto insolita: sono molto dispiaciuta di aver letto questo libro, non tanto perché non mi è piaciuto granché, ma perché mi ha reso davvero dubbiosa sul fatto che una scrittrice come Harper Lee abbia dato il suo consenso alla pubblicazione di Va’, metti una sentinella.

Il punto è che sembra una bozza e non un romanzo finito. È incoerente, logicamente molto debole, noioso a morte nella prima metà, non c’è una vera e propria trama – o anche solo una strada da percorrere in compagnia della scrittrice – e alcuni brevissimi paragrafi formati da una sola proposizione sembrano semplici appunti.

Ho capito la storia – e le tesi – che Lee voleva raccontare, ma penso che anche l’editor meno capace si sarebbe resu conto che questa storia non sta in piedi. Ci sono delle parti notevoli e che danno l’idea del bel romanzo che poteva essere, ma sono completamente abbandonate a loro stesse e lasciate alla deriva in pagine e pagine che non si capisce nemmeno perché sono lì.

Avrei preferito una pubblicazione critica che presentasse Va, metti una sentinella come la bozza informe che è piuttosto che farlo uscire come il seguito de Il buio oltre la siepe. ( )

Shockingly, in Ms. Lee’s long-awaited novel, “Go Set a Watchman” (due out Tuesday), Atticus is a racist who once attended a Klan meeting, who says things like “The Negroes down here are still in their childhood as a people.” Or asks his daughter: “Do you want Negroes by the carload in our schools and churches and theaters? Do you want them in our world?” The depiction of Atticus in “Watchman” makes for disturbing reading, and for “Mockingbird” fans, it’s especially disorienting. Scout is shocked to find, during her trip home, that her beloved father, who taught her everything she knows about fairness and compassion, has been affiliating with raving anti-integration, anti-black crazies, and the reader shares her horror and confusion. “Mockingbird” suggested that we should have compassion for outsiders like Boo and Tom Robinson, while “Watchman” asks us to have understanding for a bigot named Atticus.

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.
adicionada por danielx | editarNew Yorker, Adam Gopnik (Jul 27, 2015)
 
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.
adicionada por danielx | editarNPR books, Maureen Corrigan (Jul 13, 2015)
 
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.

"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
