text · The Dean's December Ó Saul Bellow

Back and forth between the two cities The Dean's December represents Bellow's most spirited resistance to the forces of our time Malcolm Bradbur This was another beautiful story from Bellow but uite a bit melancholy that the others I have read Herzog Augie March Mr Sammler's Planet Seize the Day I liked the Albert Corde character and his wife Minna Perhaps with the fall of the iron curtain and the disappearance of the hideous dictatorship in Hungary some of the political weight of the text is lost but the primary story is really the Dean and his childhood friend amnd the Dean's own acceptance of himself Bellow is always so stunningly human in his writing and this was no exception
