Pity, you think so little of me But this is your horrendous detachment, howling down the corridors of the night, that sours me, for you are missing the uniqueness of our history, and I think that history of uniqueness But leaving that aside for a moment, tell me, school me, inform me, just how much is the full sea scroll measure how much is demanded in escrow, in terms of forbearance, when a people s total soul has been ripped off, whored upon, misused, wracked, raped, ruptured, and mangled, and they are left with their asses set afire in the grass, and their names gutted with a protoplasm soaked in dung and urine, their breath choked off on the gallows and their sex spread and split down upon rust bloodied hooks, like sausages and their not quite dead bodies picked and swept from Southern towns to Northern universities to be plucked by cattle prodding tools and prayerfully studied over in order to save the bodies of the ENEMY s posterity I ll leave my thoughts from my first read down below this new review of sorts,like rumination, I rarely feel capable of properly reviewing a book, especially one as powerful as this , even though I ll likely hit some of the same high points.This is a powerful, unique, truly special book it s stunning this was Forrest s first novel, as it is utterly wild, frenetic, raging, lyrical, and brutal, yet it also precise and crystalline in a measured way that is typically only seen in later works of great authors His prose is a true wonder, it is a joy to read while at the same time it is a labor to read, as it is an endurance demanding 200 pages of rage, anguish, betrayal, and tragic grief It encompasses the amalgamated trials and tribulations of centuries of slavery and insistence that one is lesser, but looks past it and brings in the hardships of the day to day struggle under Jim Crow laws, and the continued subjugation through gentrification and prejudice that culminates in backbreaking poverty and it s told through meandering conversations, through dreams, through visions, through agonizing small details that reach out and break your heart in two And that s how the old man comes in and found the house late that near Christmas evening all mucked up just like the way the world done looked to him, all his natural life, I guess They commenced to lighting And me being the oldest, I tries to stop em and gets caught with a baby bottle upsides my natural head Bottle filled with hot water, cause we ain t got no milk for the baby It is also importantly, seeing as this is the first of what is considered a trilogy focusing on Nathaniel West and relations concerned with family and the ties that bind and divide us The family relations in the book are complicated by the various approaches and reactions to ones blackness and either the acceptance or rejection of said blackness Myself remembering those parties where uncles and aunts and cousins as well, whose several ancestors had made and developed a small fortune on special white lightning bleaching creme, and whose grandparents had owned and sold slaves and educated all of the children except Uncle DuPont who was my father s fifth cousin and mother s second cousin at the Sorbonne, from monies accruing from those two self serving enterprises all of whom hated my father for remaining a fourth cook.And him, Father, rather than becoming anything became nothing if he couldn t be everything but became everything to me, even as he trained and demanded that I try to catch the stars in orbit, without expostulation yes, and how to appreciate a flower and to listen to a poem, and how to switch hit and how to love and yes, something of hate as well But overall the book feels as if it is weaving its own mythology, one that incorporates fire and brimstone Christianity, word of mouth slave tales, history ancient, recent and modern King s martyrdom mixes with Christ s crucifixion, tumbles into a combination lynching and slave auction in one breathtakingly amazing section along with a mythification of the day to day all focusing on the falling down and the rising up the notions of downfall and redemption harkening back to the descent of lucifer and the downfall of man weeping for a paradise lost and yet still yearning for the possibility of a paradise found prior review follows If you want a trustworthy recommendation for this book, look no further than the Forward provided by none other than Ralph Ellison What a tortured, history wracked, anguished, Hound of Heaven pursued, Ham and Oedipus cursed, Blake visioned, apocalypse prone projection of the human predicamentYes, but how furiously eloquent is this man Forrest s prose, how zestful his jazz like invention, his parody, his reference to the classics and commonplaces of literature, folklore, tall tale and slum street jive How admirable the manner in which the great themes of life and literature are revealed in the black white American ness of his characters as dramatized in the cathedral high and cloaca low limits of his imaginative ranging In fact, I m going to mostly leave it there, as not only does he accurately praise this work, he does one better and almost unbelievably captures the nuance of the prose with its the sharp corner turns and its fractured but ultimately so complete method of storytelling And, if in reading the quote above, you can t wrap your head around how all that will play out, how it will read on the page itself, well to that I say Yes You can t, there really isn t way you can, without reading the text itself It is utterly singular Faulkner at his most complex comes close, but this ismodern it has ingested Faulkner and Fire and Brimstone sermons and modern history and chaotic freewheeling jazz insanity and managed to cram into that the first 70 years of the 20th century all furious and anguished and caustic and wailing It is not easy, it is not forgiving, but it is damn well worth the time

to read To read the book is to do battle with Leon Forrest s intellect, to be challenged at every turn I am not ashamed to say I was not always up for the challenge the final 8 pages, an absolute explosion of prose, overwhelmed me Not to mention that if you re looking for a plot here, you won t really find one More than half the book is total fantasy, dreams, nightmares, visions.Forrest has, in this slim book, distilled the accumulated pain of a legacy of oppression and slavery, communicated something of the weight of History to the reader That he has gone almost unread is a tragedy There Is a Tree More Ancient Than Eden is like nothing I have ever read It is capital L Literature, wrestling with the mighty themes of history yet refusing to neglect the nuance of human motivation It is a

structure here if you ve made it to this review read this book I feel like I only need to read it about twotimes to write a real critical response to something so monumental that manages at just
