Cephalopods, Apples, Mushrooms, Graves — A Typical Wells Salad In my university days, I once borrowed from the vaults of the English department of the library a veritable doorstopper of a book that claimed to contain all the collected short stories H. Wells ever wrote. It was the first time had I ever read Wells, and it was a lasting experience to me.
There was especially one obscure little story tha Cephalopods, Apples, Mushrooms, Graves — A Typical Wells Salad In my university days, I once borrowed from the vaults of the English department of the library a veritable doorstopper of a book that claimed to contain all the collected short stories H. Claiming that this is one of the Apples from the Tree of Knowledge, the stranger tells Mr. Hinchcliff of his qualms about eating it. Would knowledge be worth the potential heartaches involved in also knowing the most secret thoughts of everyone around us?
This is just one of the questions the elderly man asks himself before he finally yields to an impulse and gives the apple to Hinchcliff, already repenting his premature decision when the train is carrying him on, leaving Hinchcliff on the platform. If one of the boys should come by, it might do him a serious injury with his discipline so to be seen. And the juice might make his face sticky and get upon his cuffs — or it might be an acid juice as potent as lemon, and take all the colour out of his clothes.
This little story pretty much sums up all there is to know about knowledge: The fact that it might be a double-edged sword, giving you much more than you bargained for, the inextricable link between knowledge and regret, but also the circumstance that university people are often more concerned about mores and the proprieties of their day and age than about the acquisition of knowledge.
I think you will find it hard not to read this book too quickly, a book that gives you a good impression of the manifold narrative voices of H. This collection, seventeen tales published between , is one of the best I've read in a long time.
Wells' early SF novels are part of our culture's consciousness by now, but it is here in the short story form that I was able to fully appreciate his astonishing range. I imagine most of these were written before he was famou This collection, seventeen tales published between , is one of the best I've read in a long time.
I imagine most of these were written before he was famous, certainly before he was considered a science fiction writer. In that sense you get to see a new genre coming into being here, history being made. Many of the expected elements are present but there are some unexpected ones too. In several stories he takes on a comic voice with a sinister edge.
I can't help but hear in it the overtones of a post-Victorian age, where things we used to know are perhaps not so intelligible anymore. I felt much the same way here as I did after reading Poe's complete stories. By going beyond the most famous tales I got a much more complete sense of the author's work.
Now when I return to those famous stories again I'll appreciate them all the more. Next up is Tales of Space of Time, his third collection. I'm reading from the green hardback omnibus put out by Gollancz in It has all five collections plus enough uncollected stuff to make a sixth. It's a great volume and it claims to be complete. El caso de Plattner es muy curioso. A esto lo han dado en llamar la locura de Monson.
Este cuento es una advertencia de Edward George Eden. Hasta se ve salir de su cuerpo y alejarse de la tierra en un viaje verdaderamente alucinante. Aubrey Vair, un escritor mediocre y casado, queda profundamente enamorado de una joven que parece corresponderle.
