Reflections in a Golden Eye tells the story of Captain Penderton a bisexual whose life is upset by the arrival of Major Langdon a ch An impending sense of dread interlaces the lives of five characters set on an army base in the American South of the 1930s They are all prey of the remorse that goes along with secret liaisons inner frustrations and repressed sexual preferences With the rigidness of the secluded military system and the inherent loneliness in hermetic marriages imposed by social convention as a backdrop resentments and obsessions will fester in contained aggressiveness and will inevitably escalate towards a virulent eruptionCaptain Penderton wrestles against his strong attraction to men in self loathing while his wife Leonora has an affair with Major Morris Langdon Officer Williams performs nocturnal voyeuristic rituals in a state of trance revealing his suppressed fascination for the female sexAlison Langdon s mental state is fragile after a traumatic event and is repelled by her husband s dalliance with LeonoraWorthy of a Tennessee Williams play these excessively temperamental anomalous and aimless characters drawn in opaue languidness live locked within self imposed isolation and disguise their torments with overwrought refinement and menacing politeness The title of this novelette Reflections in a Golden Eye evokes the mismatched glances the missed opportunities of crossed looks that never found each other It s in the eye where the seed of unresolved passions remains embedded where a primal and inexplicable fixation for the other is fostered where unconsummated lust clouds discernment in the threshold of desire A peacock of a sort of ghastly green With one immense golden eye And in it the reflections of something tiny and grotesue 86 The symphonic motifs played in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter are revisited in this novella They might be accused of lacking in thematic magnitude if compared to McCullers opera prima but the dismal melody of her prose seeps in relentlessly subjugating the reader taking him to the pit of human desolation and leaving him alone with the discordant echoes of characters who live trapped within themselves and are incapable to communicate in a claustrophobic setting which in turn gives shape to the ongoing metaphor that condemns the societal hierarchy of the American South of the thirties Yes we have encountered this theme before but the masterful precision in design and the deliberate structure of the work at hand that leads to a dramatically distilled outcome offers a nuanced reading experience

Reflections in a Golden Eye summary ´ 8 Carson McCullers ´ 8 free download Ost any hands such material would yield a rank fruitcake of mere arty melodrama But Carson McCullers tells her tale with simplicity insight and a rare gift of phrase Written during a time when McCullers's own marriage to Reeves was on the brink of collaps I love the way McCullers s work is overrun with the most vivid ueens Some closeted like Lieutenant Penderton here but others gay and carefree like Anacleto Mrs Langdon s Filipino houseboy This is a story of sexual derangement of what happens when the love impulse is forced underground in an age when it dare not speak its name The novel is in its way almost unutterably sad It makes us glad that we live in comparatively happier times Despite the fact that McCullers has these moments of marginally uestionable usage say four or five instances where another word choice would have been better the book is a wonder And at 127 pages you can read it in one sitting The book holds us in thrall Highly recommended
