Book by Masefield, John
A historical novel by a writer who witnessed the southern reconstruction period and how the newly freed slaves were reduced to non citizenship status once again; and how the south emerged rather unchanged in racial attitudes after the reconstruction period. Tourgee was an expert in the rise of the Ku klux Klan and how the Klan ultimately won its war on the freedman without suffering guilt or punishment. This novel not only tells of a specific post civil war period but also gives a background for understanding the ‘Jim Crow’ laws that followed and the acceptance of the sham ‘separate but equal’ Supreme Court ruling.
This work is well written and very informative while using a fictitious family from the north to bolster the historical record of reconstruction--well worth the time and effort to learn some of the true feelings of the people in relation to each other after the bitterness of the civil war.
THE story was good but it took me while to get into it. The language of the now free slaves is tops All in all, it kept my attention once
I got involved with the story.
Broad story of reconstruction in the south..
Several soliloquies consider the political, social, and community realities
of reconstruction policy that offers a current reader historical perspective.
I read it several years ago. This copy was a gift for a dear friend who loves it.
If you are a fan of sea adventure then this is a great read. Fun to read yet there are no chapter breaks. You have to pick your stopping points well. John Masefield captures the moment well and supplies plenty of drama and adventure in this sailing epic of the 19th century.
The fool is not a fool. But to find out on the last page the meaning is boorish. All the story and premise were very believable. Until civil rights and the reason for war, KKK, and brutal aftermath of the war describe reconstruction and the horrific brutal rights of free black men was and is just not right. The main character is a shit to begin with. How he changes to a good guy suspect. The dialogue and the fool's letters were sincere. How the descriptions and general newsworthiness were in a different language that made sense for the times.
Outstanding analysis of the Reconstruction and effects after the Civil War. Explains a lot of the racial differences that we still have today.
