SUMMARY Disappearance

CHARACTERS ☆ YEEZY950.US ☆ David Dabydeen DOWNLOAD ✓ Disappearance This novel that echoes the styles of Joseph Conrad and V S Naipaul follows a young Guyanese engineer appointed to help save and shore up a Kent coastal village's sea defenses and his relation. Most of the reviews about this book complain that it is slow and nothing happens It is true that the pace is languid and that there is very little action However there is a great deal going on beneath the surface as there always is with Dabydeen The influence of Naipaul is clear as is that of Conrad s Heart of Darkness most of all though there is the influence of another Guyanese novelist Wilson HarrisThe protagonist is a Guyanese engineer who comes to England to work on coastal defences on the south coast near Hastings He stays in the village of Dunsmere with Mrs Rutherford We move backward to his childhood and to his first engineering job in Guyana and then back to the present Interestingly the particular stretch of coastline near Dunsmere is the same one where the protagonists of Rushdie s Satanic Verses also land Mrs Rutherford is a sort of guide not only to the village but to the past and colonialism She has lived in Africa and has some tribal masks which play a role in their discussions about England and colonialism her husband has left her now possibly dead There are two characters who play similar roles both workmen on the coastal projects Swami in Guyana and Christie an Irishman in EnglandThe novel is packed with symbolism the crumbling cliff falling apart as the empire fell apart The migrant condition is examined in the interplay with Mrs Rutherford on the very stretch of coastline so symbolic in British history 1066 and all that Of course the engineer is battling the very same sea that he battled in Guyana The landscape in England is symbolic and strange I felt like some prehistoric bone in the Hastings museum which had suddenly stirred in its glass cabinet Alienation and identity are strong themes the engineer tries to fit in rather than be himself Mrs Rutherford points out he too is hidden behind a mask of subservience because of his desire to be acceptedThe contrast between the two engineering projects is significant the sea triumphs in Guyana As the worker Swami points out the engineer has adopted a western approach and not taken into account local conditions and local gods In England Christie says much the same thing to him Although the scheme in England works the local gods here are custom and money The Engineer s mentor Prof Fenwick who set up the job he discovers through Christie is taking money and dragging the job outThe migrant experience is alien and unsettling but changes the face of the landscape and indeed the structure of the land as the sea wall is completedThere are so many layers the heart of darkness theme is also central and it is easy to get lost in all the levels of meaning Actually an enjoyable and thought provoking read Love and Friendship languid and that there is very the History of Modern
