This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [Why did the judge kill the kid? Dustin Steinacker Two reasons I suspect: In this case it’s an unwavering commitment to war and bloodshed.
He saw the kid as the sole member of the party who wavered in that commitment, or at least presented himself as having that perspective. Second, remember all of that stuff about things existing only with his consent? He sketched an ancient piece of armor and then destroyed it, and later on sketched an old cave painting and then destroyed it. I think there’s something he enjoys about being a witness of something and then removing it from existence.
With he and the kid the last surviving members of Glanton’s Gang I think he’s pretty inclined to make everything that happened in that narrative a memory for him and him alone. Is there a name for the chapter summaries that occur at the beginning of the chapters in this book? Is this an old convention that the author was using to some formalistic effect?
Or why else did the author choose to include these in the novel? Madison Santos I think it has to do with “The Arguments” that begin every Book of Paradise Lost, which if I remember correctly, Milton’s editor asked him to include …more I think it has to do with “The Arguments” that begin every Book of Paradise Lost, which if I remember correctly, Milton’s editor asked him to include to make sure everyone understood what happened in the narrative of each Book.
Blood Meridian is filled with thematic parallels and scene recreations of Paradise Lost. Could be some other formality I don’t know about either, I think I’ve seen it in a few long poems and definitely in the newspaper briefings that start every chapter of The Lime Twig.

Lists with This Book. The man finished the book. He closed the pages tightly together then put one foot on the floor then the other then used his hands to push himself up out of the chair and then put one foot in front of the other until he had walked all the way to the book shelf and then put the book on the book shelf. The deer walked in. The man whirled around and fired once with his pistol and the brains of the deer went flying out the back of its head and painted the wall a color dark red like blood.
The man sat The man finished the book. The man sat down again like a man sitting down. I didn’t really like the book, said the dead deer. I reckon I was pretty conflicted, replied the man grimly. His writing style is pretty problematic. I reckon his style is perty silly, he just strings a bunch of them declarative statements together, like ‘the man did this then the man did that etc”, but they don’t paint no picture, they’re done totally unevocative of anything. I reckon it don’t take no skill to just state in excessive detail what someone is doing.
It takes artistic skill to say it in a way that done bring it to life for the reader, and he don’t done really do that. I reckon it’s some sub-Hemingway shit he’s doing. It’s not all bad though. I reckon some some of the images t’were pretty powerful. And the judge is a memorable character. I reckon he’s the only one though.
All the rest of them there charac’ers ain’t real sangrre, like he done put no effort into ’em ’cause he spent all his time on the judge. And that there whole novel was all And real repetitiv’ too. I read that he doesn’t see why people like Proust and James because he thinks all novels should be about life and death things.
I reckon that’s ’cause he’s too obsessed with subject matter and not enough with style and art. The dead deer nodded and walked out. The man slowly got up again by putting one foot then the other on the floor and then used his hands to push himself up out of the chair.

He fixed himself a drink and resolved not to take anymore book recommendations from Harold Bloom. Mccarrthy all comments. There are two ways to evaluate a book, as far as my unlearned mind can concoct at the moment. Stylish literary flourishes sometimes cloud our judgment when it comes to evaluating the plot itself, which is, after all, the reason why the book exists.
This book is well written. If I’m a 11th grader, and I need to do a book report, I’m drooling over the blatant symbolism dripping from each page. The scene is set admirably, though the repetitive mmeridiano of our brave hero’s wanderings at least it’s wit There are two ways to evaluate a book, as far as my unlearned mind can concoct at the moment. The scene is set admirably, though the repetitive nature of our brave hero’s wanderings at least it’s with symbolic reason lead to a paucity in novel adjectives by the 13th desert crossing.
There are only so many ways one can say that it’s hot, dry and empty. Boy, that sun sure is strong. I’m there, I’m with you, all right, it sucks around here, phew, the sun’s really beating down today. And there are a lot of bones. Dead things abound, OK, I get it. Then there’s the story line.
Meridiano de Sangre : Cormac McCarthy :
Explain to me again why I’m interested in the wanton marauding of a band of depraved demons? So, we enjoy sange dashing of infants into rocks because of the supposed literary merits of the work? But, you say and without quotes you say itthat’s what it was like. It was like that? Why do you want to believe that it was like that? As bad as humankind is, our reality is not that despicable, though our souls may be.
Why do we have to play follow the leader behind our impish pied piper, pretending an enlightened understanding of some grandiose truth, while all we really do is sate our own personal blood lusts? By the way, if neglecting quotation marks somehow makes the book classier, why not just go all out and remove spaces between words. You better believe I won’t be speed reading the repetitive descriptions of how tired everyone is if there aren’t any spaces.
Why stop there, periods are for two bit hacks too. You’re not a real author until you slaughter a few hundred non-innocents nay, no one is innocent while neglecting a basic courtesy to the reader. Who knows, I don’t speak Spanish, maybe I’m just missing the point entirely.

It’s like if Kill Bill, Vol. They both are cartoonish exercises in violence. They both are a pastiches of high and low art. They both have one stunning scene that wins over the critics the Indian attack in Blood Meridian, the snow duel in Kill Bill and neridiano feel pretty flat for the remainder. And yet, Blood Meridian has become a darling of critics and now, with McCarthy’s Oprah-appr I don’t get people’s love affair with this book.

I guess one big difference is that Kill Bill’s violence and appropriation doesn’t seem to have any central idea driving it, where Blood Meridian clearly does — it’s just that I can’t figure out what that point is.
And I haven’t found any analysis of it it’s a gnostic text; it’s a reformulation of America’s history of violence as a new Bible; whatever convincing.
Maybe I can learn a lesson from the Kid, and come to terms with my not getting it by stoically spitting.

I was unable to connect with one at all. Or cage me up with the village idiot and stuff ocotillo bulbs and azotea up my hideyhole. I’ve read enough McCarthy to last me a lifetime.
I’m officially done torturing myself trying to get what others find so great about his mccarthyy. View all 13 comments.
Macbeth might very well have been referencing this book when he bemoaned that life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
