After reading Ozick's collection of essays entitled Portrait of the Artist as a Bad Character I wanted to read of what she had to say about literature and its link to culture I was disheartened to see that the collection Metaphor Memory had been plundered to make up a large portion of the first collection I'd read That collection was filled with an autobiographical element as a whole it was a personal testament to the art of writing and reading In this earlier collection of essays there were clearly a good deal of the occasional pieces ie literary reviews of contemporary works for periodicalsNonetheless I contented myself by re reading the exceptional essays—The uestion of Our Speech Ruth and Metaphor and Memory—as well as the reviews all of which are far erudite than any that might appear in the Arts Leisure section of one's local newspaper Henry James Unborn Child is a thrilling imaginative re creation of the circumstances surrounding the composition of a short story that James had left unfinished and which was recently unearthed Why she wonders in a field that is crowded with post graduates seeking to make a mark has no one taken the time to look closely at this particular story Her psycho analytic interpretation itself is a masterstroke of story telling of truth telling that is at the heart of fiction writing the fabrication that entertains and enlightensHer review of Shmuel Yosef Agnon's newly translated novel Edo and Enam in her essay SY Agnon and the First Religion is an extended commentary on the parameters of translation and the expulsion of the Greek sybyline first religion from the Judaic Law metaphorically a call for those in exile to return to Jerusalem Lofty speculative stuff but entertainingWhat Drives Saul Bellow is a review of his collection of novellas Him with His Foot in his Mouth which resolves into a discussion of Bellow's uncanny ability to observe and record to combine street smarts with the overriding bliss of learning Ozick's words about Bellow And Bellow's uick witted lives of near poets as recklessly confident in the play and intricacy of ideas as those of the grand Russians are Russian also in the gusts of natural force that sweep through them unpredictable cadences instances where the senses fuse 'A hoarse sun rolled up' single adjectives that stamp whole portraits portraits that stamp whole lives hair from which 'the kink of high vigor had gone out' the knowing hand on the ropes of how thing work the stunning catalogues of worldliness 'commodity brokers politicians person injury lawyers bagmen and fixers salesmen and promoters' the boiling presence of Chicago with its 'private recess for seduction and skulduggery'Ozick is no less discerning erudite and entertaining with reviews of Primo Levi William Gaddis J M Coetze et al and in a series of essays about modernism post modernism and what literature might look like after the muse departsAll good stuff made less impressive because so much of what is best here is also the substance of her later collection for which I had these concluding words in my Goodreads reviewAll the essays are worth their reading and each holds in it the seed of Ozick's essential premise the ability of literature to edify and even redeem the attentive reader
