This deft handling of the stories endows Murdoch with the liberty to throw raw chunks of thinking at us, and these are different ones in each book. Murdoch does something similar but in a more hidden way. Ultimately, however, she presents and answers? How and why do we adjust to the regime?
How does society reassert its grip on our minds? Not if, but how. The right presuppositions are already in place.
Thought is merciless. Conclusions are temporary, and likely, merely by virtue of being conclusions, wrong. Here are two particularly salient passages that relate to this issue:. The only good Marxist is a mad Marxist.
The Book and the Brotherhood
Murdoch is a deeply generous writer. There are people falling off the Christian faith, there are people entering it. Instead, she creates two roles for it. One is faith as something mystical, something vaguely incomprehensible to the uninitiated, something that needs to be experienced in order to understand it. Instead, she shows us religion as mystical, as beyond the reductive grasp of anatomy and reason. In a way, she reads religion on its own terms, gives it breathing space on its own turf.
The second role of faith is as an element of social cohesion, or private solace, as something that can provide some persons with strength, resolve There is an extraordinary novella by A. Kennedy, Original Bliss , that explores a similar topic. Review up soon. Murdoch privileges neither role, and does not present either as exoticism. On the contrary, she frequently suggests that many of our preoccupations may tie in with faith, not just by association, even causally.
However, I did say earlier there were several kinds of stories. The other major strand, apart from the ideas just mentioned, is love and death. A group of friends, some in love with others, some becoming pregnant, some dying, some married, some divorcing. A smorgasbord of relationships. Like a soap-opera, honestly. After a few dozen pages, these characters get into your head. The story is so well done, so much developed through these complex characters that it feels real.
