not seem to be a mirror hung anywhere No self reflections Instead we seem to be a mirror hung anywhere No self reflections Instead we only see portraits And indeed how punctilious and exacting these portrayals are Nothing seems to escape the sharp eye almost surgical of Jenkins He is almost like our peek hole But he is not He is part of the action part of the plot and the memories and recollections are his And yet they never reveal much about him All his attention is directed elsewhere like that of a meticulous portraitistBut all along the long Animal Babies gallery of portraits there is one which consistently stands out He was after all the first dancer of the Dance And even though Widmerpool is so very creepy and such aauche dancer I am infinitely amused whenever he walks into the ballroom and steps onto the limelight He is the where is Wally of Powell s dance Where is WidmerpoolHe certainly was At Lady Molly s and left his uncanny mark Summer arrivesLife jogs along apparently in the same old way and then suddenly your attention is drawn to some terrific change that has taken placeLife hardly ever turns out to be what it was expected to becomeAnd the narrator looks around and keeps wonderingSo often one thinks that individuals and situations cannot be so extraordinary as they seem from outside only to find that the truth is a thousand times odderThe novel At Lady Molly s mostly concerns matrimonial prospects of a social climber Kenneth Widmerpool who was earlier defined as a frog footman which description suits him perfectly I Offenders and Detainees guessAnd one character commented on his chosen one Women may show some discrimination about whom they sleep with but they ll marry anybody And what about the other female personages A lot of social butterflies that s all they are Summer is a season of butterflies and men are catchers This is the fourth volume in the twelve novel Dance to the Music of Time The books are organised in terms of the seasons and so the first three novels are the Spring of our narrator s life consisting of A uestion of Upbringing A Buyer s Market and The Acceptance World This novel is the first in the Summer This begins in 1934 and follows many of the characters we have already become fond of as well as some new introductionsThe last novel The Acceptance World saw Nick Jenkins just embarking on a career in publishing The Bright Young Things of the 1920 s are nowrowing up and embarking on marriages and divorce In 1934 Nick is working as a scriptwriter for the film industry He meets a new qasas-ul-quran group of people at Lady Molly s andets to know the Tolland family Nick is courting Isobel Tolland but we find out very little about their relationshipWidmerpool shows up uite often in this fourth book of the series and ets involved with an unusual older woman There are many humorous events and eccentric new characters in this book Very entertaining Come along all of you said Molly You must all see the monkey You too Tuffy You simply must see him People say that you can meet anybody at one of the evening parties iven by Lady Molly and Nicholas Jenkins is about to test the theorem when he Dead-End Road Mysteries gets invited by one of his new friends Chipp Lowell You can find anything at Aunt Molly s even lovelyirls Are you coming I d like to very much The monkey residing in the bedroom of the host is actually one of the least controversial and surprising Hear the Wolves guests in the house Old acuaintances from the first three books are popping in and out of the limelight Tuffy Wheedon Dicky Umfraville an elderly reclusiveentleman that seems related to everybody else old school friends and old flames New names and their family connections are thrown at the reader Molly and Jeavons the hosts a eneral that trains poodles for hunting dogs Alf alias Erridge alias Lord Warminster an unconventional butler named Smith and a society lady that smokes.

I Cannot The cannot praise the Dance to the Music of Time series highly enough It s deliciously addictive and an absolute pleasure to read Imagine if you will the best of Evelyn Waugh when he s dealing with a large number of disparate characters eg Sword of Honour and Brideshead Revisited and following some of your favourite characters from these books throughout their lives add in the kind of twists and turns you d find in superior soap operas then sprinkle liberally with the humour of someone as ifted as PG Wodehouse and all written in an accessible beautiful and lucid style A Dance to the Music of Time is utterly fantastic and BFI Film Classics gets better and better as the characters become familiarIt s now 1934 and Nick Jenkins is working as a scriptwriter and At Lady Molly s sees Nick finally embrace the adult world completely It s the first time we encounter Nick making a proactive decision rather than passively observing what is happening around him At Lady Molly s also introduces us to a large number of new and diverse characters who I muessing will continue to play significant roles as the Dance progresses The key character is the eponymous Lady Molly who whilst she only appears in two scenes provides the meeting places for diverse and eclectic characters to interact Needless to say we encounter Widmerpool once again and as always in many ways he is Nick s alter ego and the star of the show Despite having yet ignominy heaped upon him he continues his reinvention and upward trajectory as his evolution from school boy nerd to driven and successful businessman continuesTwo tips for anyone reading the A Dance to the Music of Time series1 I referred to Invitation To The Dance by Hilary Spurling when I needed to remind myself who s who and recommend it It s a fantastic resource and a ood read in its own right2 wwwanthonypowellorguk has a character list synopsis and some excellent essays that throw light on various aspects of the book and further enrich the reading experience45 The following passage was discovered in 2007 in an early draft of Anthony Powell s novel At Lady Molly s It was presented at a joint meeting of the Anthony Powell and Sigfrid Siwertz societies held earlier this month in Stockholm where it was the occasion for considerable debateI suddenly realised that the
person talking with Sir Magnus was General Conyers whom I had not seen in over talking with Sir Magnus was General Conyers whom I had not seen in over year I scanned his face anxiously at that age senility can set in with terrible suddenness but he seemed almost preternaturally unchanged A moment later he had moved over to join meYou look well sir I hazardedKeeping busy said the General That s the important thing Had I started reading Swedish when we last metThe rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be iven for Goodreads policy reasons A third of the way through this uniue series and I expect I ll continue at a modest pace to work through to the end The narrator and the cast of characters that revolve around him continue to interest and at times fascinate I can t say that I loved this book or that I m obsessed with starting the next one but the content so far fully justifies continuing to see where things will وصف الاستعباد في مملكة فاس - مذكرات أسير سويدي على عهد السلطان مولاي عبد الله go and how the relationships will play outIn many ways one of the most intriguing aspects of the books and the series is how neutral unassuming at times passive vanilla unexceptional Powell has crafted his protagonist It s not fair to describe Nick as a cipher but it feels that while he may be the axle around which the action spins his actions seem largely irrelevant to what animates each bookOn a book by book basis and particularly on a chapter by chapter or page by page level this is leisurely languid stuff Nothing jaw dropping but similarly reading the books is a comfortable and strangely compelling experience Today it s very much a period piece almost like reading a male centric Jane Austen in serial form or I muessing for some like watching Downton Abbey lots of parlor room banter social commentary abstract observation caste and status related jockeying etcOne thing I find striking is that while the story line at least so far evolves between WWI and WWII the books as I understand it were originally published from 1951 to 1975 Nonetheless it feels fresh and contemporary As literary historical fiction oes it s easy to see why it s stood the test of timeThis may seem obvious but my sense it would be a huge mistake to read these out of order.

The Second Of Four Trilogies Of Anthonysecond of four trilogies of Anthony s Dance to the Music of Time Synopsis followed by What I ThoughtIn this synopsis I ve used
Hilary Spurling S Brief Overview Of The Chapters To RemindSpurling s brief overview of the chapters to remind of the narrative threads in each of them see Invitation to the DanceThis segment of the Dance takes place in 1934 The first chapter commences on the New Year The series first person narrator Nicholas Jenkins is now in his late twenties working in the low Voice of Conscience grade film industry as a scriptwriter He s taken to a party by Chips Lovell at Lovell s aunt s place The aunt is Lady Molly Jeavens who hasraciously bestowed her name via the handiwork of Powell to the book The typical party banter of Powell s novels here produces among other new revelations of time s passing the unexpected news that Jenkin s long time acuaintance Widmerpool from school and college is engaged to be marriedThe second chapter involves lunch with Widmerpool a tea atten Woman may show some discrimination about whom they sleep with but they will marry anybody Anthony Powell At Lady Molly s Marriage as I have said is a form of action of violence almost an assertion of the will Its orbit is not to be chartered with precision if misrepresentation and contrivance are to be avoided Its facts can perhaps only be known by implication It is a state from which all objectivity has been removed Anthony Powell At Lady Molly s At Lady Molly s is the fourth book of 12 or the first book in A Dance to the Music of Time 2nd Movement If you prefer to think of Anthony Powell s rhymes with pole s not towel s masterpiece cycle in terms of months At Lady Molly s is AprilThis novel like most all of Powell s novels so far brings in new characters allows old characters to flow through and enerally pushes time forward a few years I ve heard many descriptions of Anthony Powell s narrative Some describe it as a dance obviously that Powell choreographs Some describe it as a symphony where themes and instruments appear play their part and remain silent for a couple minutes only to reappear in slightly different circumstances and dress I am reminded a bit of Degas experimentations with monotypes He loved to play with the process of printmaking How the printmaking process could smudge and press his ideas with either dark fields or light fields His images of people and landscapes would emerge out of darkness smudged reflections would arrive from the plates He would create multiple images from the same plate that would allow him to create host images He would let the press express through colored smudges the idea of movement I think Powell is playing with some of the same ideas Through time and memory faces blur but the dance continues People spin into focus briefly and then spin away That is the cycle of life and relationshipsI also like the appearance early in this novel of Lord Alfred Warminster or Erry short for Erridge or Alf This character is largely based on George Orwell a contemporary of Anthony Powell and classmate and friend from Eton who operated in many of the same circles Orwell and Powell were actually very close for several years and Alf seems to be Powell both celebrating Orwell and poking The Pedlar and the Bandit King (Scarlet and the White Wolf, gentle fun at his talented leftist friend In fact Powell and Orwell were so close that at Orwell s funeral in 1950 Powell was the one who selected the hymns Reflecting on this Powell wrote The Lesson was from Ecclesiastes therinders in the streets the Marvins Room grasshopper a burden the silver cord loosed the wheel broken at the cistern For some reason George Orwell s funeral service was one of the most harrowing I have ever attendedAnyway like Proust it is easy toet caught up in the talk the movement Whereas reading Proust always reminded me of participating in a lucid dream reading Powell seems like being fairly toasted at a beautiful party or well a dance At Lady Molly s is volume four of the A Dance to the Music of Time.
