Reviews of : The Golden Age by Kenneth Grahame PDF Book
Inside this Book – In the Spring of 1990, a friend at college and I read aloud these stories, and those from this book’s sequel, Dream Days aloud to each other, usually outdoors on mild sunny days. Simply because of that, I can’t help loving these half-forgotten works of Grahame’s, despite recognizing that long winded, almost painfully precise Victorian prose sprinkled with Latin isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (and oh yes, copious amounts of tea were also drunk during our readings). This is an episodic account of the doings of five orphaned children, Edward, Selina, Harold and Charlotte, and our narrator, who I think comes second in age, whose name we’re never told. They are left in the care of some vaguely sketched in aunts and uncles. Apart from suffering lessons from a governess, they seem pretty much left to their own devices. Sometimes Grahame does some regrettable winking at the reader over the children’s heads, but other times he’s very funny.
Inside this book –The Golden Age PDF Book by Kenneth Grahame – A classic Edwardian evocation of the separate world of childhood that seems to have vanished today with helicopter parents and the Internet. Grahame calls adults “Olympians,” as in remote and pretty useless, compared to the present, pointed, world of childhood. The book is short on plot and long on Grahame’s wonderful writing and elegiac tribute to that beautiful era of hot summer days, stolen fruit, escapades involving farmers’ rowboats, and the safety of childhood innocence. Where have we gone so horribly wrong that we can’t let children be children any more?
