A really moving and fascinating Vermeer to Eternity end to the series a bit weird very powerful and all together fantastic It s curious to consider that when Anthony Powell wrote Hearing Secret Harmonies the final novel in the twelve novel series A Dance to the Music of Time and despite the series starting in thearly twentieth century that it was almost contemporaneous being published in 1975 and taking place in the late 1960s and Heaven to Betsy early 1970s and makes references to hippies the permissive society Vietnam and Enoch Powell The final two volumes Temporary Kings and Hearing Secret Harmoniesach moving the narrative forward by around ten years allows for some dramatic changes to have occurred the most notable change is in Widmerpool whose trajectory changes in ways that would be difficult for anyone to imagine So B. It earlier in the series Anthony Powell finished the series with a real flourish Hearing Secret Harmoniesmbraces the late sixties counterculture and contains some truly stunning scenes He also manages to introduce yet new characters including the memorable Scorpio Murtlock and his Harmony cultOverall A Dance to the Music of Time is magnificent Reading the series has been such a fabulous Cabaret experience Anthony Powell is a master Although the books can be read andnjoyed individually and on their own terms the real pleasure is in reading all twelve books and njoying a narrative that takes place over a seventy year time span Calling his series A Dance is a perfect metaphor as Anthony Powell is akin to a choreographer who intricately keeps track of over four hundred characters across than a million words It s a stunning achievement and throughout his beautiful writing is as much of a joy as the ingenious plot and his ambitious and completely successful cultural and social history of England throughout the twentieth centuryThe star of the series is undeniably Kenneth Widmerpool one of the most memorable characters I have ver Forbidden Faith: The Secret History of Gnosticism encountered in a book Widmerpool is a contemporary of narrator Nick Jenkins and despite not being friends he crops up somewhere invery volume Whilst narrator Nick along with many of the characters represent musicians poets novelists painters Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice etc Widmerpool is the opposite a ruthlessly ambitious person but a deeply flawed human being I wonder to whatxtent he might represent the triumph of commerce and bureaucracy over aesthetic considerations that appears to be one of the main aspects of twentieth century historyWhilst reading it I have had a copy of Invitation To The Dance by Hilary Spurling which is a wonderful reference book particularly when I needed reminding about a character who had just reappeared Now I have finished the series I plan to read the whole of Invitation To The Dance as it clearly contains lots of other useful and interesting information I also have a copy of To Keep the Ball Rolling The Memoirs of Anthony Powell which looks like another wonderful book and according to the cover is En plein coeur especially illuminating to students of A Dance to the Music of Time I am really looking forward to reading both in addition to re reading this marvellous series again A Dance to the Music of Time is a masterpiece and one of the best literaryxperiences I have The Bookshop on the Shore evernjoyed Profound funny dramatic and remarkably accessible and Dance Real Slow easy to read It is a series I will return to again I cannot praise it highlynough Certain books are age specific not in a Suitable for ages 7 and up way they just have to be read at the right time in life to truly resonate Catcher i When I read the concluding trilogy of the The Art of Memoir epochal writer Anthony Powell s 12 volume masterpiece A Dance to the Music of Time in the late seventies andarly The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life eighties I wasnthralledAnd I was so carried away I ven had a postal correspondence with the great Master himself over in England for a whileI was a star struck recent English graduate and uite stupidly ueried Powell as to the factual origins of one of his the factual origins of one of his Each novel after all HAS been seen as a type of roman clefI can just hear old Powell harrumphing his response by return mail to whit in his usual lusive and mysteriously non allusive way
