This is uite a brilliant remarkable and odd book that somehow no one told me personally that I should read Why has the secret been kept Okay a recent check confirms that Bloom had it on his Western Canon list But Toomer s just a name how was I supposed to know he s actually goodIt is to a large extent a portrait of many of the horrors and a few of the beauties of small town post slavery but still gravely unjust southern life from a black perspective It s also an uncharaterizable amalgam of styles and modes incorporating some lyric poetry some straight narrative some psychological insight some expressionistic stuff some borderline surrealism all processed deftly by an innovative and masterly mindSomehow he works in such oddities as this Her mind is a pink meshbag filled with baby toeswithout throwing the novel into pure abstraction Well okay but the whole Rhobert chapter is rather far out as far as far out goesHere are some other little snippets I likedwords is like the spots on dice no matter how y fumbles em there s times when they jes won t comeGod he doesn t exist but nevertheless He is uglyAs he steps towards the others he seems to be issuing sharply from a vivid dreamTh form that s burned int my soul is some twisted awful thing that crept in from a dream a godam nightmare an wont stay still unless I feed it An it lives on words Not beautiful words God Almighty no Misshapen split gut tortured twisted wordsNow it s fair to say there are a couple of chapters where the author may trip up a bit Though I may not be able to say why the chapter Box Seat seemed to go wrong in precisely the same way most of the other chapters went right Just something in the way the pieces fit together felt put on or something like that And another chapter too fell perhaps a little below brilliance But I reckon those are the kinds of stumbles that happen when you dare to take big risks as an author and aim at something both fantastic and grotesue And I m not so confident in my judgement that they were stumbles rather than something that just rubbed me the wrong way as I suspect one part or another of this book is likely to rub any reader the wrong way once in a whileDon t let my hesitation detract from the overall message that this book is a phenomenon
