Sophie’s Choice (novel) – Wikipedia

Sophie’s Choice First edition. I had done a certain amount of smooching, as it was called then, in the balconies of several movie theaters; another time, stranded in the leafy and secret dark tunnel of the local lovers’ lane, I had with madly pounding pulse and furtive fingers succeeded in obtaining a few seconds’ worth of what was known as ‘bare tit’; and once, scenting triumph but nearly fainting with exertion, I managed to wrest off the maidenform bra only to discover a pair of falsies and a boyish chest flat as a ping pong paddle.

Styron has taken an enormously complex panoply of subjects–young manhood, post-WWII New York, mental illness, obsession, guilt, and more–and structured them into one of the most un-put-downable novels you will ever read. Some of the scenes between Sophie and Nathan were more disturbing and horrific than the ones that took place at Auschwitz.

Who could solve the moral dilemma of the Greek mother, who was allowed by the Nazis to choose which of her three children should be killed? Stingo complains he could have done that better himself.

wiliam Retrieved February 25, He visited Auschwitz while researching the novel. Like Stingo, his lust has been driven “underground,” so to speak. In no way would I characterize it as erotica. Part of it made me embarrassed for Styron or the editor. You’re a miserable lying cunt, do you hear me?

Sophie’s Choice by William Styron

The novels most charming moments are when the three are together on one of Nathan’s elaborately planned adventures. Uses authors parameter Wikipedia articles with BNF identifiers. He has just the tendency to be overly melodramatic like Pat Conroy’s The Prince of Tides but at least his characters are multi-dimensional.



Nathan will come to praise Stingo’s writing giving him the confidence to complete what will become his first novel, Styron’s Lie Down in Darkness. It was less engaging than I anticipated it being and parts of it were rather difficult for me to get through. At ,a house Sophie and Nathan were embroiled in combat just sohie the door of my room Arendt herself cites Albert Camus ‘ Twice a Year for the story without providing a pinpoint reference.

Nathan has chosen to make of collective calamity his personal crusade while prejudice runs ironically deep through his veins. Hopefully, it cleaned up some of Styron’s messes. I’m just not so keen on contemporary literature, I suppose.

It seems done not to prove a point but to give the book some tragic affect though it comes off beyond contrived. It seems that his family once had a slave named Artiste and he was put out to work.
