The sale coincides with two important landmarks for Lennon: These remarkable drawings and manuscripts come from the collection of legendary publisher Tom Maschler, who as Literary Director of Jonathan Cape in the s, was responsible for bringing both In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works to fruition.
The other part of the time, the majority if I'm honest, I felt like a teacher reading poorly written papers by high school students. One important word they all forgot to include is "tedious.
It's not very good.
People are fond of saying John Lennon was fond of Lewis Carroll. This is not Lewis Carroll. This is an angry young man - and don't get me wrong, he certai The back cover of this collection highlights several words from reviewers.
This is an angry young man - and don't get me wrong, he certainly has quite a few legitimate reasons to be angry - who has translated "boring and difficult childhood experiences" into "nothing anyone else says is true," typing what could be clever stories and poems but with a remarkably irritating persistent commitment to adding and changing letters in words.
Some of his letter, suffix, compound noun transcriptions are truly clever - but those are statistically ultra-rare ensconced as they are within non-rational uses of the ubiquitous trope.
It's such a pervasive device, Mr. Lennon truly sabotaged his own creativity. It's just a hassle to read. And a book that is a hassle is not clever.
Some of the poems are treated better by Lennon, but it's hard for them to stand out among the morass of petulant non-stories. By the time one gets to A Spaniard in the Works, John Lennon is truly angry at religion, society, and just about everything.
Again, I'm not saying he's not justified, but the petulance of the work contributes nothing worthwhile to the challenge of making religion, society, and humanity better - he's just angry and basically throwing a sub-literate temper tantrum.
Anyone who comes to these hoping for something resembling his lyrical work will be sorely disappointed. I'm not faulting Mr. Lennon for not doing in his prose what he did in his lyrics - I'm faulting him for being so childish about it. And I decry the publishers and pundits who laud it solely based on who constructed it - tsk, tsk, brown nosers.
Truth be told I rather like the drawings much more than the poems and it's because of the drawings that I rated it three stars rather than two. I wish that there were more drawings, the line art is fantastic in my opinion and could've made for an interesting zine or comic.The drawings, poems and prose were created for inclusion in the books "In His Own Write" and "A Spaniard in the Works".
