Summary ↠ The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Î PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Today F Scott Fitzgerald is known for his novels but in his lifetime his fame stemmed from his prolific achievement as one of America's most gifted story writers The Curious Case of Benjamin Button a witty and fantastical satire about aging is one of his most memorable s. The curious case of Benjamin Button as a slightly melancholic and in its absurdity somewhat humorous surreal tale on time and non conformism could in a sense be read as a satirical allegory on ageism avant la lettre Or maybe I did so You re just the romantic age she continued fifty Twenty five is too wordly wise thirty is apt to be pale from overwork forty is the age of long stories that take a whole cigar to tell sixty is oh sixty is too near seventy but fifty is the mellow age I love fiftyTo everything there is a season But as no man is an island others might have fixed or preconceived ideas on what might be the appointed or appropriate time for certain life events happening to us and how we should be and behave at specific moments in life even if the desirable behaviour or bringing about such events is beyond our control and we are helpless and unable to change so we fit into the frame of normality or in the plans of our relatives or larger society Why be happy when you could be normal If we have to live on someone else s terms societal norms and standards might collide with our identity and condition and cause friction and chasm even with our near and dear when they cannot accept we digress In presenting Benjamin Button s case depicting the insensitive and petty responses of both outsiders as well as Benjamin s father wife and son on Benjamin s various stages of life and development Fitzgerald caustically shows how deviance meets with shame irritation rejection ridicule shock and denial Our loved ones are not always willing nor able to transcend their own frame of reference in perceiving and accepting us as we really are even if this might make us thoroughly unhappy She sniffed again The idea she said and after a moment I should think you d have enough pride to stop itHow can I he demandedI m not going to argue with you she retorted But there s a right way of doing things and a wrong way If you ve made up your mind to be different from everybody else I don t suppose I can stop you but I really don t think it s very considerateBut Hildegarde I can t help itYou can too You re simply stubborn You think you don t want to be like anyone else You always have been that way and you always will be But just think how it would be if everyone else looked at things as you do what would the world be like PostertextOf thoughtful satire and social criticism one can expect it speaks for itself I wasn t particularly taken with the story nor did I find any specifically enlightening insights on age or aging in it but ostensibly such didn t seem the purpose of the story The prose however on the moments it uits the outspoken satirical register flows delicately and lyrically movingly mellowing nearing the ending while Benjamin reaches the innocent sweetness of infancy soothing like a lullaby And when the long day was done at five o clock he would go up stairs with Nana and be fed oatmeal and nice soft mushy foods with a spoon There were no troublesome memories in his childish sleep no token came to him of his brave days at college of the glittering years when he flustered the hearts of many girls There were only the white safe walls of his crib and Nana and a man who came to see him sometimes and a great big orange ball that Nana pointed at just before his twilight bed hour and called sun When the sun went his eyes were sleepy there were no dreams no dreams to haunt him

Summary ↠ The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Î PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free D prep school and as his mind begins to devolve he attends kindergarten and eventually returns to the care of his nurse This strange and haunting story embodies the sharp social insight that has made Fitzgerald one of the great voices in the history of American literatur. First of all how is there an entire movie here Yeah yeah it would probably be best to come back to thatMy overall vote is meh From a clunky start this short story waxes and wanes in a similar fashion to its title character All that I could think while reading the first two sections was how Fitzgerald s dialogue and descriptions of character behavior were the literary euivalent of cutting paper dolls out of vellum and proclaiming them to be sentient creatures Along with being generally flimsy prototypes for Dad Mom Doctor Nurse etc each one of the figures in the story spoke as if they were awkward bratty kids acting in a grade school stage play Example from when Se or Button the First arrives at the hospital expecting to greet his newborn child who is actually as you surely know a crotchety old man What s the matter demanded Mr Button appalled TripletsNo not triplets answered the doctor cuttingly What s you can go and see for yourself And get another doctor I brought you into the world young man and I ve been physician to your family for forty years but I m through with you I don t want to see you or any of your relatives ever again Good bye Geesh calm down princess And here I thought I was addicted to exclamation points like my keyboard pumps helium through my fingertips directly up to my brain Fortunately the pre teen euivalent to daytime soap opera dialogue eases up as you move along with the story The soapy behavior however continues In the upper hall he addressed another nurse who approached him basin in hand I m Mr Button he managed to articulate I want to see myClank The basin clattered to the floor and rolled in the direction of the stairs Clank Clank This is just one example but YES I am definitely nitpicking However have you ever seen the film Wet Hot American Summer It cleverly addresses this irritating habit of bad movies bad television shows and in this case bad bad writing the tendency to have people convey the complex and often disparate emotions of astonishment anger and terror simply by dropping whatever they are holding with overly high pitched generic sound effects included In WHAS every time a character throws something in frustration or shock the same stock track of breaking glass is played regardless of what material the projectile is composed of This happens something to the tune of a 10 ish times in the movie and it is increasingly hilarious In Benjamin Button however it is just another example of some of the slovenly writing contained therein As you move on the story becomes engaging I don t know if it is necessarily better written in parts or if the plot itself simply distracted me from otherwise weak wordplay All the same as the character hits his physical thirties and begins losing his passion and feelings of connection to his lethargic 50 s ish wife you feel for him a bit As he regresses further and further back toward the womb losing the respect of his community and even his ungrateful dickwad of a son you feel for him a bit And so on and and so on In fact the sections dealing with Benjamin s adult child s frustration with his increasingly infantile father were pretty emotionally charged It seemed a fitting metaphor for the way that many adults tend to eventually see their aging parents as burdens rather than role models and givers of life It invokes the reader s sympathies for those poor loony old folks dumped into nursing homes and abandoned by their kin to rot in the diapers that life tends to cycle us back into Sad sad stuff All in all Benjamin Button is an interesting story with somewhat poor execution It is pretty watery and considering that it is so short I d argue that sloppy writing is kind of inexcusable Also there is a point near the end where my interest dropped off pretty sharply as I felt fairly certain that I knew exactly what was coming By the end the story had once again become about as fascinating as some stranger s drooling babySo again how is there a movie here Oh and why have I never seen it There are so many things about it for which I have positive associations Cate Blanchett David Fincher Brad Pitt Fitzgerald For some reason though I just never got around to it and am even less interested now Would you care to change my mind
