Pricksongs Descants Fictions

Pricksongs Descants originally published in 1969 is a virtuoso performance that established its author already a William Faulkner Award winner for his first novel as a writer of enduring power and unuestionable brilliance a promise he has fulfilled over a stellar career It also began Coover's now trademark riffs on fairy tales and bedtime. Legendary NarrativesThis collection of early stories is not a lesser work in any way In it Coover maps out the journey that his writing career would subseuently follow It announces and displays his early ambition and skillIt reflects a dual interest in the subject matter of fiction and its methodology As Coover says of some of his stories in retrospect great narratives remain meaningful through time as a language medium between generations as a weapon against the fringe areas of our consciousness and as a mythic reinforcement of our tenuous grip on reality The novelist uses familiar mythic or historical forms to combat the content of those forms and to conduct the reader to the real away from mystification to clarification away from magic to maturity away from mystery to revelation And it is above all to the need for new modes of perception and fictional forms able to encompass them that I barber s basin on my head address these storiesThe Interpolation of the Post ModernCoover tells his stories within the framing device of other stories of myths and legends of fairy tales and parablesFairy tales in particular are often written with great economy perhaps because they formed part of an oral tradition in which they were memorised and recounted from generation to generation for the benefit of the youngTheir economy leaves Coover scope to interpolate modernity into the tradition of the fairy tale Transposed to the contemporary he fleshes his tales out with pricks and cunts In doing so he reminds us how much fairy tales have always been concerned with sexuality especially the fear of seduction abduction rape murder and the premature loss of virginity thus making explicit what was formerly and formally implicitSome Titular HypothesesThis concern is signaled in the title of the collection which adapts an expression used by Granny in the first story a prologue of sorts I know who s got her giddy ear with his old death cunt and prick songsThe idea of a death cunt a black hole in the words of Rikki Ducornet is a perception of the female body as seduction a lethal detour of the spirit leading to enslavement the cunt as snare prison and coffinview spoilerSee Rikki Ducornet s The Death Cunt of Dell hide spoiler

review Pricksongs Descants Fictions

Stories In these riotously word drunk fictional romps two children follow an old man into the woods trailing bread crumbs behind and edging helplessly toward a sinister end that never comes; a husband walks toward the bed where his wife awaits his caresses but by the time he arrives she's been dead for three weeks and detectives are poun. He pronounces it aloud smiles faintly sadly somewhat wearily then continues his tedious climb pausing from time to time to stare back down the stairs behind himWhen the time arrives for resolution I will be there One day soon the followers of Coover will engage those of Barth tooth and claw There will be no uarter The scene will remind us of Bangkok and we will wear the shirt of Coover proudly Through the tear gas and vitriol we will triumph Our cause will prevail because of the brilliance of The Magic Poker and The Babysitter These two exercises astonish in their smutty Impressionism It will be admitted that I was sometimes too impatient or ill euipped to truly delight in all of the pieces presented here Where Barth paints with manic glee about Story Coover recycles his own variations distilling a Gestalt where the dross whispers of all outcomes and the reader s imagination trembles in capacity Hope remains and victory will be ours Coover Rules

    Pricksongs Descants is mostly about the power of human imaginationThat sweep odour that girls have The softness of her blouse He catches a glimpse of the gentle shadows amid her thighs as she curls her legs up under herImagination is rich but it plays dirty And that’s a reason so many prefer to live an imaginary life in a realm where everyone can be kingHe loves her She loves him And then the babies come And dirty nappies and one goddamn
