why they are so harrowing nothingness is a daunting presence to overcome And rarely do they pre I had no Idea who Raymond Carver was before I picked this collection of short stories Of course I asked the great oracles of the Internet to feed me information about him and they told me that MrCarver is one of the American literary gods who revived the dying short story literary form in the 80s My primary concern was for the short story medium that almost died in the 80s and don t worry I checked and they are thriving nowadaysAs I read Carver s stories I understood that he is a maestro in creating minimalistic stories that hold a plethora of themes inside its simple exterior To be honest his stories can be considered as disguised ciphers as while reading you may think the story is about bananas but in fact It might just be about the potassium and carbohydrates or even orangesThe bananas are just a metaphor Carver never wrote about bananas to my knowledge His themes were repetitive yet effective and he wrote about isolation loneliness alcoholism marriages miscommunication and the human condition Most of the stories in Cathedral uses middle class couples and their marriages as stage setting and from there Carver unleashes a torrent of words to create effective stories There were twelve short stories and while I enjoyed all of them these are my top three picks A Small Good Thing This one hit me hard Too hard to be honest It s about a couple in a hospital waiting for the news about their young son s recovery from a hit and run case The pain the uncertainty and the fear are so well written that you couldn t help but be in the room with the characters If I am asked to recommend one serious short story to anyone this will be the one I endorse Feathers This one is about an evening dinner with two colleagues and their wives The story is filled with metaphors and bewildering domestic moments but it was the uncomfortable feelings of the characters that kind of

free download ô eBook or Kindle ePUB ä Raymond Carver Raymond Carver ä 3 characters free read Cathedral It was morning in America when Raymond Carver's Cathedral came out in 1983 but the characters in this dry collection of short stories from the forgotten corners of land of opportunity didn't r American author Raymond Carver 1938 1988 master of the short storyA dozen Raymond Carver stories collected here as part of the 1980s Vintage Contemporaries series Since other reviewers have commented on all twelve I ll share some short short cuts from the title story my reflections on Carver doozy a story I dearly love Here goesCATHEDRALThe Blind Man The narrator s wife is bringing her old friend a blind man home for a visit since the blind man made the trip to Connecticut to visit relatives following the death of his wife The narrator s idea of blindness and what it means to be a blind man comes from the movies Such a telling detail of lower middle class Carver country life saturated by popular culture especially movies and television Although the narrator remains nameless throughout the story I sense his name is Al so I ll take the liberty to occasionally refer to the narrator as Al Poetry Al s wife writes poems one such poem about how during her last session with the blind man she let him touch her face and neck with his fingers And Al s reaction to poetry I admit it s not the first thing I reach for when I pick up something to read Ha What understatement not the first thing I reach for matter of fact safe to say Al hasn t come within a mile of reading a poem since high school English class I can clearly envision Al rolling his eyes as he grumbles under his breath Damn sissy stuffLifeless Bitter Pill The narrator conveys some of his wife s background how she married her childhood sweetheart etc It s that et cetera that underlines Al s distaste for life For Al life is a bitter pill Black bile Al His words about his wife s despair and attempted suicide before she met him are entirely devoid of emotion and as flat and as cold as a frozen pancake Recreation Al s wife has been trading tapes with the blind man over the years Al demeans the tapes along with his wife s poetry calling them her chief means of recreation At one point listening to one of the tapes Al does get extremely upset We read My own name in the mouth of this stranger this blind man I didn t even know A key revealer of what Al really values and finds important as he sings that all too familiar song It s all about me Pathetic The blind man lived with his wife and after she fell ill had to sit by his wife s side holding her hand in the hospital and then bury her when she died All this without his having ever seen what the goddamned woman looked like It was beyond my understanding The narrator goes on to tell us how the blind man is left with a small insurance policy and half a Mexican coin The other half of the coin went into the box with her Pathetic The perfect word since ironically what is truly pathetic is the narrator s hard boiled heartless cynicism Creepy As Al waits for his wife to return with the blind man from the station what does he do The two big pastimes in Carver country drink and watch TV When the blind man does arrive the narrator is surprised he doesn t use a cane or wear dark glasses He looks carefully at Robert s eyes the blind man s name is Robert and conveys the detail of what he sees His overarching observation creepyFamily Prayer After a few snide sarcastic uestions and remarks hurled at Robert courtesy of our narrator as they smoke and drink in the living room all three sit down at the table for dinner Before they all dig in we read Now let us pray I said and the blind man lowered his head My wife looked at me her mouth agape Pray the phone won t ring and the food doesn t get cold Raymond Carver you sly dog slipping this belly laugher into your bleak tale Actually one thing that is not pathetic even for black bile Al serious eating When all else fails always the animal pleasure of chowing down on steak and potatoes and strawberry pieRat Wheel After dinner conversation and Al finds out that Robert has done a little of everything a regular blind jack of all trades In turn Robert asks a few uestions about Al s job and almost predictably the narrator s answers are 1 three years at present position 2 don t like it and 3 no real options to get out Work as a deadening reinforcement that life is an unending rat wheel But the narrator has one surefire way to deal with the rat wheel every night he smokes dope and stays up as long as he can TV and Dope to the Rescue When the conversation peters out TV to the rescue Al turns on the set and his wife leaves to change into her nightgown and robe Alone together Al treats Robert to a little cannabis When the narrator s wife returns Robert tells her there is always a first time for everything She takes a seat on the coach and joins them As the narrator observes the blind man was inhaling as if he has been smoking weed since he was nine The Creative Act Al s wife falls asleep on the coach and he and Robert watch a TV program about medieval cathedrals The narrator uestions Robert on how much he knows about cathedrals just how big they are Robert suggests they engage in a little artwork together so the narrator can show him all about cathedrals Down on the living room carpet armed with pen and paper Al and Robert hand on hand begin their artwork Then the unexpected happens during their joint creativity Robert tell the narrator to close his eyes and asks him what he thinks MU The narrator says it is like nothing else in his life up to now how he doesn t feel like he s inside anything It s really something My reading of the narrator s experience He finally lets go of his self preoccupation and crusty cynicism and has a direct experience of that other side of life the one beyond ego beyond judgements beyond all categories life as boundless awareness In Zen this is called Satori but for right now on his hands and knees on the living room carpet it has no name and it needs no name Black Painting No 34 1964 by American Artist Ad Reinhardt
