    MOBI beechesgardenservicescouk  The Blue Flower Kindle È The BluePDF \ blue mobile, flower mobile, The Blue ebok, The Blue Flower PDFThis is my favourite of the three Fitzgerald novels that I've read In common with Gate of Angels and The Beginning of Spring a wealth of research has gone into this novel Our reasons for liking a novel are often subjective and completely unreasonable And I do love this novel which for me has the sound feeling of an early piano playing Mozart sonatas early Beethoven and here and there something by one of Old Bach's many musical sons Am I too biased by the memory of a pizza eaten at Jena waiting for a train one hot summer's day many year's ago without a doubt So in my case t

    MOBI beechesgardenservicescouk  The Blue Flower Kindle È The BluePDF \ blue mobile, flower mobile, The Blue ebok, The Blue Flower PDFA gorgeous elliptical book which I was drawn to by its subject eighteenth century German philosopher and poet becomes obsessed with unattractive twelve year old girl I fell in love with The Blue Flower just like Fritz later known as Novalis did with Sophie only the book's positive ualities are slightly obvious It's beautifully written understated and perhaps touching than you would expect Fitzgerald never demands that you like her characters and there's no sentimentality but you care about the von Hardenburgs and Sophie anyway because they're so strangely endearing How can you read this book and not want the Bernhard as your younger brother?If you approach it like a conventional novel then you'll probably be disappointed because the pace of the narrative is uite unusual and occasionally the focus seems odd most novelists would struggle to k

    MOBI beechesgardenservicescouk  The Blue Flower Kindle È The BluePDF \ blue mobile, flower mobile, The Blue ebok, The Blue Flower PDFI've had this on my 'Currently Reading' shelf for ever and ever I think I was put off by the late 18th century setting and the focus on the poet Novalis neither of which are my interest areas but I've read 5 or 6 of Fitzgerald's now and each and every one is Brilliant this one includedThis is clearly an historical fiction novel the author has done her research making sure that dates places people and known events all tally If she had focussed exclusively on this I would have been bored but the real focus of the novel is the von Hardenberg family of which Fredrick was the eldest son He took the name Novalis from an old family name meaning 'clearer of the land' although I can only guess that Fritz his nickname would have intended a cleaning of the soul I know nothing about Novalis not having read anything by him but I enjoyed Fitzgerald's novelI started this book after a reading slump which for me is highly unusua

    MOBI beechesgardenservicescouk  The Blue Flower Kindle È The BluePDF \ blue mobile, flower mobile, The Blue ebok, The Blue Flower PDF35 starsThis is my third Penelope Fitzgerald The focus of the book is the early life of Fritz von Hardenberg – better known as the German Romantic poet Novalis – and especially his infatuation for 12 year old Sophie whom he meets during an official visit he pays as apprentice engineer to the household of her stepfather von Rochenthien The book begins by offering us a closer look at the Hardenberg family the weak and easily distracted mother the capable elder sister the boisterous independent minded youngest brother The father makes his appearance a little bit later; a born again Christian or the euivalent in 18th century Germany and a member of the nobility but without funds or connections von Hardenberg rules the household with an iron fist but though not much loved he is not hated either He is of course offended at the news of the French Revolution and finds the idea a civil suit against the King of France

    MOBI beechesgardenservicescouk  The Blue Flower Kindle È The BluePDF \ blue mobile, flower mobile, The Blue ebok, The Blue Flower PDFThe Blue Flower is another of the books my dear old dad got me at Christmas and like the other one I read What a Life by JB Priestley it is a stone cold turkey I’m not sure what my pa asked for when he went into the bookstore but I’m pretty sure it was “I want to bore my son like he’s never been bored before what books do you suggest?”The novel looks at the short life of Novalis an obscure late 18th century German Romantic philosopherpoet and his relationship with his 14 year old betrothed Sophie On the edge of your seat yet? But wait there’s Novalis is also administrator of a salt mine and then Sophia dies at 15 of a brain tumour or something Novalis dies shortly after aged 28 Yeah that sounds like something I’d be interested in grumble Don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this guy or wanting to read about this era but whatever thanks dad I’m really not sure what Penel

    MOBI beechesgardenservicescouk  The Blue Flower Kindle È The BluePDF \ blue mobile, flower mobile, The Blue ebok, The Blue Flower PDFThis is a strange and beautiful short novel which revolves around the young poet Friedrich Von Hardenberg's the 18th century German poet Novalis inexplicable love for the somewhat slow not particularly lovely 12 year old Sophie Von Kuhn who would become his fiancee The novel's genius lies in its complete lack of interest in explainingexamining the WHY of Hardenberg's love This is not a love story or a romance It is an observation of the sort of ineffable human forces that produce not only love but also its companion artIn this small book what goes unsaid unseen and unheard is just as important as what we as readers do have immediate access to; it is an object lesson in the writer's art of strategic omissionFitzgerald makes many other interesting and in my opinion successful choices the novel has its own ordering logic but d
