{ Read } Party Going ☆ Henry Green


E read It was worth the though a re reading Fog was So Dense Bird That dense bird that been disturbed flat into a balustrade and slowly fell dead at her feetreading Henry Green is ike a dream even what should be tedious the game playing teasing and mocking among the vapid rich the wonderful few Max with his three suitors at his back beauty rising from the bath always the crowd outside emphasising their special ness Green shows they don t deserve it they are frivolous and uninvolved in society wide issues although they have the power to make trains wait BUT ON THE OTHER HAND THEY RE JUST HUMANS on the other hand they re just humans to whims and embarrassments ike those in the crowd on the station forecourt When this mass is individualised the working class come across cheekily one on top of another s shoulder to reach the maids in an upstairs window stoic not bitter or only individually so as petty as those ocked in too Death is seeping everywhere The Hero Next Door like the fog the ill aunty who people try to ignore or intermittently attend with her wrapped up dead pigeon theuggage Ask Me No Questions like tombstones attended by mourners the dark and the fog obscuring And every few pages a passage thateaves you floating touched ike Amabel Green flirts and teases with you wooing all the time So it s a dream but one that makes you feel alert and receptive His awkward phrasing sometimes blunt images make you back up a bit The writing sticks in you It s what you want novels fiction to do Well me anyway When a thick fog stops the trains in London a group of upper class Brits funded by their richest member can t eave for their planned holiday in the Party Going is a piece of human comedy but it isn t without its tragic overtones and a fine dose of absurdity The departure of a train was delayed due to the soupy fog so the story is a scrupulous description full of subtle psychological observations of the process of waiting The tale is told in the cinematographic way and the camera constantly tosses from character to character There is not a personage without some whimsy or peculiarity and Henry Green is always profound than it may seemMax therefore was reckoned to be of importance he was well known he moved in circles made up of people older than himself and there was no girl of his own age ike Julia Claire Hignam or Miss Crevy even Evelyna Henderson although she was hardly in it who did not feel something when they were on his arm particularly when he was so good ooking Again one of his attractions was that they all thought they could stop him drinking not that he ever got drunk because he had not yet American Musicians lost his head for drink but they were all sure that if they married him they could make him into something uite wonderful and that they could get him away from all those other women or so many of them as were not rather friends of their ownThis is a portrait of the rich host of a party as seen with one of his admirers eyesIt was all the fault of these girls It had been such fun in old days when they had just gone and no one had minded what happened They had been there to enjoy themselves and they had been friends but if you were girls and went on a party then it seemed to him you thought only of how you were doing of how much itooked to others you were enjoying yourself and worse than that of how much whoever might be with you could give you reasons for enjoying it Or in other words you competed with each other in how well you were doing well and doing well was getting off with the rich man in the party Whoever he might be such treatment was bad for him Max was not what he had been No one could have people fighting over him and stay himself It was not Amabel s fault she was all right even if she did use him it was these desperate inexperienced bitches he thought who never banded together but fought everyone and themselves and were His Convict Wife (Convict Wives like camels they could go on for days without one sup of encouragement Under their humps they had tanks of self confidence so that they could cross any desert area of arid prickly pear without one compliment or dewdrop as they called it in his family to uphold themAnd those are thoughts of the host about his admirersMuch time of ourives is spent in waiting and many crucial events may happen while we wait A novel about some Bright Young Things getting stuck at the train station waiting for the London fog to Toyota Management System lift so they can get their party going Reminded me a bit of Vile Bodies in the way it mocks and prods at the pettiness and soullessness of these dreadful spoilt rich people in contrast to the masses huddled together on the platforms below I actually find Henry Green uite tricky to read i d forgotten this i mean it s almost as if he writes sentences in a deliberately ass backwards way just to put you all out of whack the modernist sod Lots of awful people trapped in a couple of hotel rooms at Victoria StationBitsAnyone who found herself alone with Julia could not help feeling they had beeneft in charge I won t have you watching yourself in the mirror when you re kissing me It proves you don t The Perfect Indulgence love me and anyway no nice person does that Already the acetone she had filled this room with its smell of peardropsike a terrible desert blossom. Don railway hotel where they shelter from the grim weather and the throngs of workers on the platform below. ,

ike Although it starts well Fog was so dense bird that had been disturbed went flat into a balustrade and slowly fell dead at her feetThe bird was a pigeon and the feet belonged to Miss Fellowes who fared only a ittle better than the pigeon I missed the significance even though the author kept bringing it up That s on me as professional athletes who don t mean it say I l try to keep it simplerThis is a book about insufferable people acting insufferably They are well to do Brits in the 1930s No one has a job as far as I could tell They drink instead and consider mating Max the richest by far decides they will all go to France for three weeks They meet at the train station but the fog that betrayed the pigeon halts all other transport as well Thousands of citizens wait body

or somethingAs I said insufferable But not a very subtle portrayal This book was one of the most powerful influences on my early writing In terms of style it is uite uniue Simply there is no other reading experienceike it Just a few pages in you know you re in an entirely new world of feeling and perception Not Too Much Ado About Nothing or Waiting For Fog Gone or Life is what happens while you are talking about something else As for Party Going the title is slightly optimistic mainly because the party is stuck at the train station waiting for the dense fog to disappear and also because the party fails to establish anything resembling a party despite checking in to a hotel and having drinks while waiting If Pirandello put his poor characters through the ordeal of The Ring Of The Dove looking for an author the protagonists of this story seem to beeft without a plot not worrying too much about it All they can do is cr. A group of rich spoiled and idle young people heading off on a winter holiday are stranded at a railway sta. ,

this were a play it wouldn t have to worry about Aristotelian units of time and place at all It all unfolds in the train station over the course of a day of waiting for a train which will carry the English upper class party to Southern France As for the action you will need a The Lost Literature of Medieval England looking glass to find it It partly consists in an undefined illness Aunt May is honoured with various diagnoses reaching from being tight to terminal illness In the end she is just a bit too weak to join the party when the fog dissolves on theast pagesAs for further action it consists in a rich young man s choice of women eading to various in a rich young man s choice of women eading to various scenes without inappropriate behaviour if you do not count tiring dialogue It remains Ambiguous And Without Any Hope For Closure In The Near and without any hope for closure in the near he sat there he realized he did not know if she was going to come or not And if she did come out he did not know if she would stay or when she would get it into her head to start home which she might at any time He realized without putting it into words he did not even know if he was glad she was going to come or sorry she was going to stay at homeAnd this only accounts for Max feelings towards one of his three Garfield Dishes It Out (Garfield, ladies and those feelings change on the next page adding the confused thought of being sorry she was going to come Let s not try to put into words what his women think They wouldn t be able to themselvesAs for minor incidental action it also consists of gossip and getting youruggage ready and taking a bath and defining your role in the non party mixing a drink and reflecting on who put a notice into a newspaperThat s it Nothing much happens until the fog clears Im a Narwhal leaving the reader to wonder what on earth the characters will do if they ever reach their destination It also makes one curious to read Henry Green s novel Nothing as it seems rather impossible to fill two hundred pages with anything appropriately called NOTHING than what not occurs in PARTY GOINGIt is absolutely charming non action though and the characters are masters of nothing doing so the party going or not going as the case may be is really secondary as far as their Living and Loving is concernedRecommended I m off reading NOTHING Stylistically this is similar to the two other Green novels I ve just read Living and Loving It is breathless dialogue with veryittle interior monologue certainly in the modernist tradition On the surface it is a simple story but it took Green from 1931 to 1938 to write it It is set over 4 hours at a train station A group of young wealthy socialites meet at a train station to go on holiday to the South of France this is towards the end of the era of the Bright Young Things A thick London fog has descended and all trains are stopped The station begins to fill with people and close contact with the ower and middle classes isn t that attractive so they take some rooms in the station hotel They spend most of the novel bickering and flirting There is also an aunt in tow and she is taken ill and put to bed The characters are all pretty vacuous and empty headed and on the surface it can be seen as a satire on idle rich youth because pretty much nothing happens in the novel At one evel that is true the characters are in their hotel rooms bickering and Girl, Woman, Other looking out of the Windows down on the heaving masses below However there is much going on At one point there is a description of a picture on the wall of Nero fiddling whilst Rome burns juxtaposed with Max the main character around whom much revolvesooking out at the crowds below All the girls seem to be interchangeable whilst most of the men are just irritants The girls names are even fluid Evelyn changes to Evelyna and back There is also an amorality about it and it does seem as though these rich young people are as amorphous and anonymous as the masses Then there is the strange figure who seems to move between the crowds and the group in the hotel switching accents as he does so and appears to belong in both worlds There is also the dead pigeon which the aunt picks up and washes before she is taken ill she carries it wrapped in brown paperGreen plays with space familiar space becoming unfamiliar and threatening members of the group A South African Night losing and finding each other in the station and occupying the same space at different times before they all move above the familiar space to unfamiliar roomsThe sense of oddness is heightened by the fog with the faces of the crowd having paleozenged faces as one critic points out very Bismillah Soup like Munch s The Scream Movement and tension revolve around a hollow centre as the crowd become threatening and the girls worry about being murdered in their beds by the faceless massesOf course you could go along with Frank Kermode and see the whole piece as beingaced with the imagery of Greek mythology revolving round a Hermes figureGreen is a very clever writer who teases the reader by hding all sorts of ittle messages and images I enjoyed this it pulls the mind in different directions but the characters are much ess sympathetic than in the other two of Green s novels I hav. Tion when their train is delayed by thick enclosing fog Party Going describes their four hour wait in a Lon.
