The war dictates its own rules… And these rules make a man really small…“…saw the German troops goose-stepping through Brussels, saw Poincaré visiting the long doomed galleries of Verdun between ranks of bitter half-mutinous soldiers in blue, saw the gangrened wounds, the cholera, the typhus, the little children with their bellies swollen with famine, the maggoty corpses of the Serbian retreat, drunk Allied officers chasing sick naked girls upstairs in the brothels in Saloniki, soldiers [...]
Not easy to start the USA trilogy of John Dos Passos by this second volume, 1919. It would be ideal to start with the first book, you say, or The 42nd Parallel, before attacking in 1919, reaching temporarily, discover some characters and above get an idea of the author's message.But especially to discover the writing more or less experimental from Dos Passos. And there, not easy to comment on this readingWhat I found most notable it is these inter-chapters formed Newsreels (fragments of each, ar [...]
This volume covers up to and through the WWI years. How most folks were gung ho, how the socialists types were against the war, and how oppressive the government can be against those who try to speak against the war. What I wrote on the style for the Trilogy: Must admit, don't think I ever heard of Dos Passos until I started reading this trilogy for the ML100, but glad I did. Easy reading format, historical context, and I do like history, about the interesting early part of the century in of cou [...]
I'm not really interested in "reviewing" a classic novel but two things stand out for me: the closing chapter on the selection and internment of the Unknown Soldier, which sums up much of the cold anger of the entire book; and how relevant so much of the book remains to today, nearly 100 years later. Glad I kept this on my list of "assigned college reading I skipped or skimmed but want to finish before I die."
1919, #2 in the U.S.A. trilogy by John Dos Passos is a curious mix of literary devices, some of which were fairly experimental when the book first appeared but can now seem rather tiresome. By the author's own admission, the novel is a collage of styles & approaches to capturing the 2nd decade of the 20th Century, including journal-like entries, quirky observations & listed "newsreels" that serve to introduce chapters. Beyond that, there are occasional lyrics & other passages in Fren [...]
I would have eagerly given this book four stars if the individual stories that comprise the framework weren't so damn repetitive. Passos' voice is unique, seductive, hilarious, stark and powerful. What interested me most was the motif of sexuality in the text. It rules and guides all of the main characters yet (brilliantly?) somehow manages to seem subtle. I can't help but wonder if Foer gleaned some of his literary style and Cubist text formation from Passos.
There was once a war in a faraway landAmerican soldiers were heroes andThe Land of the Free claimed the victor's swordThat king, tsar and kaiser lusted for.I understand that the Korean War owns the trademark as the "forgotten war," but can anyone explain to me how World War I--a war in which America lost 118,000 men in just over 12 months of fighting, a war whose scars continue to tear at Europe and the Middle East--could have left such little impact on American culture?George Cohan sang, "Over [...]
This second novel in Dos Passos's trilogy _USA_ (really one big novel) is more assured and more powerful than the first novel (_The 42nd Parallel_). We meet new characters, see familiar characters through the eyes of characters who were only a minor part of the first volume, and get a broad panorama of the US experiences in World War I and the Red Scare of 1917-1919. Dos Passos's use of the formal experimentation techniques he developed in the first book are more assured and tighter, his biograp [...]
Volume 1 was spectacular, Volume 2 oughta be even better. Mailer thought it so, and who knows?I'm 80 pages from the finish line and it's about as good as the 42nd parallel was.which was tip-top, in my opinion.I can't wait to read "The Big Money" and complete the trilogy cycle!
Perhaps I would have liked this book better if I hadn’t had to write an essay every 70 pages, but I still think I would have remained completely bored regardless. I respect what Passos was trying to do with his narrative style, but it fell flat for me because I was basically numbed by the complete lack of interest I had in this book to the point where I could not appreciate any of the finer qualities that make this work a “classic.” Despite all of its ~deeper meanings~, this novel remained [...]
For a novel whose ambition is to document the American experience (whatever that is), the second volume of U.S.A. spends a lot of time abroad. The attention shift is justified given the circumstances of war and the questionable peace that followed, when the fortunes of the country suddenly hinged upon the battered old principalities of Europe and beyond. If Nineteen Nineteen has any point to make, it's that it was very hard for Americans not to be drawn into the fight, once the political and ind [...]
Dos Passos, John. 1919. (1932). ****. This is the second volume in the author’s “U.S.A.” trilogy. Although supposedly written as stand-alone novels, I don’t see how a reader can just pick one of the volumes up and start off. They must be read together and in order. The author uses the same techniques to bring history alive: the Newsreels and the short bios of importnt people interspersed throughout the narrative. He also follows the lives of the same characters in this novel as he starte [...]
The fact that the action in Europe takes place behind the front lines with protagonists involved in support fonctions to the war effort makes this narrative rather unique, as it sheds an unusually cast light on the US involvement in the WWI drama from a different angle and perspective. Following the engagement of some of the characters "back home" in the social movements that rocked that period is definitly enlighting, if not moving at times.I enjoyed 1919 as much as I liked its predecessor "The [...]
This book is painful to get through. The story and characters have no depth or personality. It's like you're on a date with someone who just won't shut up! All that's missing is the modern way it would be told by adding "and then, and then, and then" between each sentence. (page 125: "They waited two weeks in Vigo while the officials quarreled about their status and they got pretty fed up with it. [and then] They were all loaded on a train to take them to Gibraltar where they would be taken on b [...]
I am surprised Dos Passos isn't better well-known. Although complete fiction, the picture he paints of the era is very compelling and is another, higher level of "historical fiction". There are several concurrent short stories of people in the period, during WW1. Great revelation to a modern reader of how these people saw that they were in the "War to End All Wars". In retrospect, I do think WW1 may have had some finalty for that type of war and its causes. For fun, these stories do cross over a [...]
…d the beat goes ond the beat goes on. This was a different sort of read for me and a difficult one at that. Did I enjoy the work? Not really, then why the 5 stars? I have to give the author credit for the work being honest, so much of the thoughts and beliefs comes through in his writing, a sign of the times. Make a few slight changes and we have a novel to define the 60's. None of the characters have any charisma, it's a dance of the most negative bunch of literary creations I've ever read. [...]
If you like the 42nd Parallel, you'll love 1919. Dos Passos hits his stride with the second book (in the three-book trilogy). Despite using the same formula as previous novel, 1919 feels slightly less formulaic, more organic and emotive. And though it can stand on its own as singular novel, the references to events and characters in the 42nd Parallel add dimension and subtext--without digressing into overly complex, divergent narratives. If you haven't yet read any part of the trilogy, consider [...]
This is the second in the USA trilogy. Anyone thinking of writing the Great American Novel can forget about it; it's already been written. The format of the book is extraordinary, especially for when it was written. It's a multi-threaded narrative, but interspersed with the several story lines are biographical vignettes that are riveting. Then there are the stream-of-consciousness chapters. The whole is like listening to the sounds of a city, with many voices that together make a distinctive sou [...]
dos passos does amazing things in this trilogy - it's mostly multiple intersecting narratives written in a unique way, where events unfold matter-of-factly, it's a prose without author subjectivity. there are creative word collages scattered throughout using newspaper headlines and popular song lyrics from the times, giving you a sense of the milieu. also, leftist polemics that read like prose poems scattered throughout the book raging against the power structure. also, prose poem-ish biographie [...]
The USA trilogy is one of the top five "books" I've ever read and you should read all three in succession the trilogy interweaves non-fiction and fiction the way Doctorow did in Ragtime and alternates in styles throughout I LOVED the 2-3 page biographies of famous people at the turn of the 20th century
This is a difficult read at first, with a very experimental form. Once you become accustomed to it, however, the book's story completely sucks you in. Beautifully drawn characters, all seemingly disconnected, combine to portray a world torn apart by war. So heartbreakingly gorgeous, I had to put it down because I didn't want to finish reading it. Ever.
I really wish I had read Dos Passos earlier in my reading career, but he tends to get lost in the Hemingway-Faulkner-Fitzgerald shuffle. Better late than never, for sure. 1919, the second book in the USA Trilogy, is powerful, though slightly tedious, at times. Any effort expended in finishing it is well worth it. The payoff is big.
This is a masterpiece of Americana. Dos Passos shows the ugly underbelly of America during World War I. The war against labor, the war against the huns was a violent debacle that showed America at its worst--all in the name of nationalism and "capitalism." It is shameful to see the horrors of what was done to make America what it is today.
I love the flow writing style of John Dos Passos. It puts me into the flow as well. It also has an oceanic feeling to it. An ocean of experiences. I hope I'll not start drinking after reading this novel :) I never realized alcoholism was so wide spread.
The "U.S.A. Triology" is one of my favorite books, ever. (I used to have a copy of all 3 of the books in one volume, it's been lost over the years). I love the use of language. I also love the pop-cultural references of the times and how they're integrated into the text. Highly recommended.
"U.S.A. is the world's greatest rivervalley fringed with mountains and hills. U.S.A. is a set of bigmouthed officials with too many bankaccounts. U.S.A. is a lot of men buried in their uniforms in Arlington Cemetery."
There's nothing I can say about 1919 that I didn't already say about the other volumes in the USA trilogy.It is the Great American Novel. Dos Passos says more here about who we are as Americans than any other writer ever has.
The second installment of the USA Trilogy is just as enthralling as the first. Dos Passos' massive cast of characters provides a fantastic walk through radical-leaning concerns in America.
He kills it with the ending.
