FREE DOWNLOAD Under the Volcano ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Malcolm Lowry ¼ 9 FREE DOWNLOAD Unfold against an unforgettable backdrop of a Mexico at once magical and diabolical Under the Volcano remains one of literature's most powerful and lyrical statements on the human condition and a brilliant portrayal of one man's constant struggle against the elemental forces that threaten to destroy him. Labyrinth of streets wild lush tropical vegetation impudently encroaching everywhere seizing the garden and the residence of Consul volcanoes majestically tower over the city hiding every moment in the clouds humidity and heat suffocating everything around Atmosphere of unspecified horror lurking in the alleys misery hanging in the air like a premonition of impending storm Mexico fiesta Day of the Death 1938 And though we know the time and place of action in dialogues and flashbacks with Consul Hugh and Yvonne we wander around the world traversing countries and cultures their history myths and poetryThe city spread out at the foot of two volcanoes streets and buildings remembering better times not only the Consul s but much earlier the Spanish explorers The city with ruins of Maximilian s Palace where yet still seem to wander the ghosts of his ill fated love for Carlotta Narrow and winding streets that Consul stupefied in scorching heat like in somnambulistic transe alternately drunk sober and hung over traverses from cantina to cantina chased by demons and hallucinationsThe narration is jerky and chaotic full of complaints remorse memories monologues Words are flowing and flowing One can read Under the Volcano as a record of extreme alcoholism self destruction as a human one way journey As a record of a one day the last one in fact from Consul Geoffrey Firmin s life the day in which Consul reached the end of the line marked gradual plunge into darkness alcohol exploration of absolute But it is also a story of love Consul and Yvonne their separation and her return on fiesta day Her desperate attempt to save Consul from himself and stick that what is irrevocably broken How one can help other man contrary to him Is it really possible such a thing to save anyone But one can look at the novel as an allegory of the fall Of a man but also the world and civilization Not only by invoking the ruins of Maximilian s Palace and statues of ancient conuistadors on the suares of the city or devastated garden like a parody of paradise from which lovers were exiled But also by reference to the time of action November 1938 there is not much time left when world will plunge into madness of war Images that Lowry creates are painfully suggestive so that in the end we seem to lose orientation we wonder if it is still Mexico whether delirium is it heat or maybe hangover
