This is somehow my fourth Iris Murdoch novel in as many months and some of her tendencies have become apparent Here too we have a foppish marginally asexual middle aged man who experiences a not so good awakening we have a third act tragedy involving a supporting character we have a bit character who scarcely ever appears but is mentioned freuently to give the illusion of time passing we have philosophic departures into the nature of love we have a ueer supporting man who willingly becomes a butler figure for sadomasochistic reasons we have a love pentagramFortunately I love all these things and so I love Iris Murdoch THE BLACK PRINCE deviates from the form in a few ways the narrative is a bit nasty and sad cruel depictions of middle aged women abound the philosophic sections are separated and there is immediate doubt given as to the reliability of the protagonist Bradley Pearson a failed author with a rivalbest friend named Arnold Bradley writes the book from an indeterminate location in space and time and a seuence of letters at the end call into doubt swaths of the narrativeThe action starts with delay Bradley keeps trying to get out of London to write his long delayed novel and keeps getting held back Murdoch novels work like stages the primary locations are always heavily permeable with freuent comedic entrances that add complications There are numerous candidates for Bradley s love his ex wife is back in town and single Arnold s wife likes him Arnold likes Bradley s ex wife Bradley s ex wife s brother likes him Arnold s daughter likes him his sister likes no one but is mucking everything up everyone thinks Bradley and Arnold secretly like each other Complexity stacks Oh she writes this kind of thing so well And with Murdoch there is always a hook This one happens very late almost exactly halfway through the novel and from there on it catches fire a thrilling novella that I won t spoil Look at the writing when Bradley does fall in love the prose is so pyrotechnic but simultaneously makes fun of himBut nothing really had prepared me for this blow And it was a BLOW I was felled by it physically I felt as if my stomach had been shot away leaving a gaping hole My knees dissolved I could not stand up I shuddered and trembled all over my teeth chattered My face felt as if it had become waxen and some huge strange weirdly smiling mask had been imprinted upon it I had become some sort of god I lay there with my nose stuck into the black wool of the rug and the toes of my shoes making little ellipses on the carpet as I shook with possession Of course I was sexually excited but what I felt transcended mere lust to such a degree that although I could vividly sense my afflicted body I also felt totally alienated and changed and practically disincarnateWow There is a seuence of vomiting in the opera shortly after this that is one of the funnier things I can remember reading I like BLACK PRINCE better than THE BELL and not as much as SEVERED HEAD or THE SEA THE SEA One needs to trust that Murdoch is both hilarious and wicked to stick with this one which is why I think SEVERED HEAD makes the best gateway drug I read it slowly and uickly at once high praise

Assuming that The Black Prince is a fair representation of Iris Murdoch s work I think its unlikely I ll read any of her booksThat s not to say she s a poor author nor is it to suggest I didn t like The Black Prince She is a fine author and I liked The Black Prince well enough But my experience with this book and what that means to my future engagement with Murdoch s novels is a bit like my experience with swimming laps in the local pool without a loftier purpose neither is worth the effortI love swimming I really do And I like how I feel after I ve gotten back into the routine of swimming But I have to make time get ready get to the pool put in the effort to swim those laps stress out my lungs feel the ache in my muscles the next day and work on staying motivated despite my enjoyment Yet I get just as much enjoyment out of sitting on my sofa watching a rerun of Match Game which takes no effort at all and much enjoyment out of swimming biking and running with a sprint triathlon as the end goal effort but it s effort well spent If Match Game is the literary euivalent of a fun Terry Pratchett novel and triathlon training is the euivalent of Ulysses I ll always avoid the middle ground that The Black Prince fills It s good but the effort really isn t worth the payoffIf I am wrong however and Murdoch s other books are worth the effort I would love to hear a convincing argument and some recommendations because if nothing else this book shows that she is a good author
