et de rmunrations entre fvrier et fin e Dear SonThe Too Little Too Late Dilemma of Marilynne Robinson s Gilead It s deceptively tempting to approach a book like Marilynne Robinson s Gilead and see only the main character s theological musings After all in a novel about an old man reminiscing about faith and family there s a plethora of weighty spiritual content everything from careful exegesis of Genesis 22 to references to Karl Barth s Epistle to the Romans Needless to say this is no simple I remember when fable of love and loss Issues are being grappled with weighed and eschewed However to review the novel from a theological stance cannot merely mean discussing old John Ames opinions on war forgiveness or predestination That job belongs primarily to his congregants and family within the narrative The uestion I the reader encountered was of the theology of a book wherein the entire premise is of a man wishing to leave a testament of his better self p 202 for his seven year old but spends his final days journaling instead of spending time with his son This is the battle I fought with John Ames and Marilynne Robinson throughout my reading It began when I realized that about every four pages I found myelf drowsing off to sleep or thinking of topics far beyond the narrator s journal entries As I had approached the novel with great enthusiasm fiction at last I wondered what could be sending my mind off into orbit Why the dissociation From the frustration with not being able to stay focused from page to page paragraph to paragraph soon emerged actual anger I found myself choosing to put the book down and find other activities almost as if to spite the narrator Something was wrong I was refusing to sit passively and listen With a little reflection this is what I discovered I was incredibly angry that John Ames was writing on and on about how much he loved his son and his wife and how he wished he wasn t about to die and there he was reflecting instead of living Enter the transference I realized how little tolerance I had for the nobility of a strong silent type preacher man finally unloading the deepest parts of his heart and soul onto paper instead of through interaction The drowsiness coming over me was of not wanting to listen to this man write I wanted to see him take action I didn t want to honor him by reading his last testament because I do not respect the idea that somehow as long as you say what you feel before you die it doesn t matter how little you expressed to those around you until that point The book brought up anger with my father his father and the generations of uiet long suffering missionary type men I am descended from Though I am not a man nor very uiet I know about long suffering and I could not suffer the boredom or veiled anger that lay between the lines of John Ames memoirs I wanted to rip the journal from his hands and essentially tell Marilynne Robinson that I refuse to applaud her character s poetry theology or self reflection when he is in essence taking the easy way out of sharing himself I ll admit there are plenty of passages in the novel that show Ames growth and interaction with others Even the fact that he married late in life reveals that he was unsatisfied persisting in the loneliness of listening to baseball games on the radio writing sermons and hiding from neighbors when they knocked on his door However all his loving descriptions of sunsets children s laughter and the smell of raindrops appear hollow the moment he starts describing his son playing outside as he writes In that the entire purpose of the novel is for this aging father to express his heart to his son for all the descriptions of moments of communion p 103 I gained no sense whatsoever of how this father related to his son Every human interaction Ames Robinson writes is marked by constraint weariness and shy civility The aching lack of intimacy in this novel made every page a grueling ordeal to wade through Take action I shouted Stop writing I m left to wonder what Robinson feels about her main character I sense that she adores his humble though never na ve faith and the grace he tries to offer others But the portrait she paints or at least the format she has chosen to use counteracts any message I might derive from the old preacher s wisdom and experience By writing the story as a last testament in progress Robinson has created an utterly passive character a true bystander of the life he is narrating I don t believe this was her goal We are clearly supposed to revel in the homely and kindly spiritual reflections of a faithful old coot that is continually surprised by beauty But for this passive bystander I felt mostly pity and uite a bit of anger Another perspective however is that Robinson has rightly captured the unfortunate experience of so many pastors especially of Ames and my grandfather s generation that of distance and objectivity My grandfather once spoke of a minister he served under who believed it was un Christian for a minister to befriend his congregants because it would cloud his ability to pastor Can we even imagine a pastor who would not eat supper at a parishioner s home Does Ames loner uality his reticence to become entangled simply reflect the expectations put on a country preacher This was the time and the concept persists in some realms where the pastor was expected to run every aspect of the church Ames statement that everyday felt essentially like Sunday because once one sermon was over it was already time to work on the next p 232 233 reflects the overburdened lifestyle of one who is expected to shepherd whole congregations by sheer determination and will power with no rest or support system other than other local pastors Boughton This symptomatic lone wolf uality made it difficult for me to believe Ames speculations on relationships because I could hear his strained resentment trying to come out It finally emerges somewhat in regards to being given a godson without his consent and over Jack Boughton s flagrant disrespect for others I have not written much of Ames and Jack Boughton mostly because the character was introduced far too late in the novel to bear the climactic significance it was clearly supposed to have The real story should have been how Ames chooses to reveal himself and be present with his young son not his struggle to give grace to his black sheep of a godson That is indeed significant but is again un served by the journal format of the book The developing story of Jack Boughton s struggles have no place in Ames letters to his son Confined by Robinson s poorly chosen device the last fourth of the book despite being the most readable breaks the rules set in the beginning of Ames writing to his son Instead the reader encounters Robinson s clunky exposition about the life of a character we have not been effectively convinced to care about Overall this is my greatest criticism for the novel both artistically and theologically it s nearly impossible to care for these characters when they are introduced as part of an avoidant old man s journal entry The richer story to be told here is that of an old man opening his heart through action and engagement with his community after a long life of loneliness In order to experience this part of the story Robinson needed to give us voices other than Ames to listen to Ames emotional distance in interpersonal relationships makes his spiritual and poetic ruminations fall short of the impact Robinson so clearly intended This novel made my heart ache wanting the silent men in my life to get up from their journals and actually say what they re thinking And this perhaps is too much to reuire of a novel Is it too much to reuire of these old men as well Isn t the real point of a last testament the admittance that too much has gone unsaid Should we celebrate a theology that waits too long to speak

Comment le A beautiful book of great wisdom and tenderness Melancholy but hopeful It well deserved the Pulitzer for Fiction in 2005 and surprisingly Marilynne s second book written 24 years after her first Housekeeping which I have also reviewed here on GR In Gilead Iowa Rev John Ames is a 76yo preacher married to a much younger woman with whom he has a 7yo son The time is the 50s and Rev writes this book to his son regretting that he will soon be dead while his son is still a child so he wanted to leave something concrete about himself for his son to read when he is older So the book talks about Rev Ames relationships to his own father and grandfather both also parsons who are both long since passed away as well as other anecdotes about how he met his wife and some of the philosophical and spiritual uestions with which he strugglesIn these musings he speaks of his grandfather who lost an eye in the Civil War and fled Iowa at one point across the border into Kansas When Ames is a boy he and his father seek out the tomb of the grandfather and this adventure marks the boy forever They find the grave and tidy it up and and as they finish they saw a full moon rising just as the sun was going down Each of them was standing on its edge with the most wonderful light between them It seemed as if you could touch it as if there were palpable currents of light passing back and forth or as if there were great taut skeins of light suspended between them P 16 Ames memories of his grandfather are like a man everlastingly struck by lightning so that there was an ashiness about his clothes and his hair never settled and his eye had a look of tragic alarm when he wasn t actually sleeping P 57 This symbol of ash also appears when the original church of Ames father burns down and the folks of the village are rummaging through the remains as rain breaks out Times being uite poor due to the Depression his father shelters himself with Ames under a wagon and they share an ash flavored biscuit that the father had in his jacket pocket it was truly the bread of affliction because everyone wad poor then P 117Ames loves his son and dotes on him but feels an immense gulf of age between them His descriptions of the boy and his mother playing are priceless like this one There s a shimmer on a child s hair in the sunlight There are rainbow colors in it tiny beams of just the same colors you can see in the dew sometimes P 60 Or You appear to be altogether happy I remember those first experiments with fundamental things gravity and light and what an absolute pleasure they were And there is your mother Don t go so high she says You ll mind You re a good fellow P127On of the themes that the latter part of the book focuses on increasingly towards the end is the rather ambiguous character John Ames Jack Boughton the son of Ames best friend Rev Boughton who Ames had baptized as a baby Jack spends a lot of time with Ames s wife and son and has some theological arguments with Ames For a while he is portrayed kind of like Ivan Karamazov the eternal doubter and manipulator and I even thought he might have aims on the Rev s family should he pass away Without giving away any spoilers let us just say that Robison masterfully portrays this character as astonishingly humanIn summary it is an extraordinary book and deserves to be read again and again I ll close with this beautiful passage from towards the end of the book which I think sums up what Ames really is saying throughoutThough I must say all this has given me a new glimpse of the ongoingness of the world We fly forgotten as a dream certainly leaving the forgetful world behind us to trample and mar and misplace everything we ever cared for That is just the way of it and it is remarkable P
