Mplete acceptance of others in this world in regards to race sex ender sexuality professioneven theater artists are accepted But then what s the story Ah that s the masterstroke The thing of it is the novel is narrated by a man who hates the place He is or less a 20th century Bulletproof Feathers guy He could be anyuy from today perhaps on the slightly conservative side And Delany places this very modern seeming man into the far future and into a world where problems of personal identity have been or less eliminated and then tells the story of how that modern man of today just can t find his place in it He doesn t fit in he doesn t et it It is the CONTRAST BETWEEN THIS UTOPIA OF MALLEABLE between this utopia of malleable universally accepted identities and this man s hatred of it that serves as the spine of this novel And I found it riveting The uy s impossible and yetand yet I sort of see where he s coming from Because I too am a man of today and perhaps I share some of the insecurities and prejudices of this asshole Frightening But that s why this book is so Charting an Empire: Geography at the English Universities 1580-1620 good As a reader I had to ask myself would I have been happy in this utopia Would I be okay with anyone being able and encouraged to be absolutely whatever they want to be Isn t that a bit childish This is particularly topical in today s world isn t it what with people all being encouraged to embrace their true selves whatever that may be We applaud every person who comes out of whatever dark closet they had hidden their true identities The only person today evidently who has any right to say just who and what you are is YOU This is a very new phenomenon and I know a lot of people have an instinctive and visceral reaction against it So could I enjoy a world just like that a world without stability of identity without structure and limitations and labels Or would I also be a miserable curmudgeon just like thisuy The novel invites self introspection and that is a rare feat And to anyone who fears they won t enjoy the novel because they won t sympathize with the narrator protagonist just know that you aren t meant to sympathize with him He s an unreliable narrator and if you were to sympathize with him you would misunderstand the themes and purpose of the novel Feel free to hate him It s what Delany intended Even as I saw where his discomforts came from I hated him It s what Delany intended Even as I saw where his discomforts came from I hated him was a joy to hate This novel is about how even in a utopia some people just couldn t be happy and that s why I say the novel is so splendidly psychological It s about how stuck we et in our own patterns how resistant to change we are how obtuse we can be about other people s feelings about how we rationalize damaging other people It doesn t deliver any pat answers this isn t Dr Phil But it does present to my mind an extremely convincing portrait of the kind of human being who is all too common today even perhaps in

of ourselves as social cultural barriers to happiness start falling away one by oneRead it as a psychological examination of the character s misery and attitudes and inability to adapt to a world without boundaries and I believe you will et a reat deal out of it Strongly recommende. Woman Against a background of high adventure this minuet of a novel dances from the farthest limits of the solar system to Earth's own Outer Mongolia Alternately funny and moving it is a wide ranging tale in which character after character turns out not to be what he or she seem. Triton Author Samuel R. DelanyUch there in the text for you at all despite the fact that it is a literary uote unuote classicalso i feel like the way this book addresses ender and Chicago Neighborhoods and Suburbs: A Historical Guide gender confirmation surgery though that is not what it is in the book not really which is part of the problem is just unbelievably irresponsible and crude lmao coming from aay author i expected but then again delany is not trans and that is a whole other issue the way cis Citrus: A History gay people feel entitled to tellingunderstanding trans stories or ideas when cisay people often really do not understand those things at all and really the point of this book has nothing to do with transness nothing at all but the unfortunate implications ARE there by nature #OF THE BOOK S CONTENT AND I JUST DID # the book s content and i just did care for it there is a Building the South Side: Urban Space and Civic Culture in Chicago, 1890-1919 great deal of depth toender and transness that can be explored in a book in thought in life this book attempted to plumb that depth and seemed to think that it had done uite an interesting and valuable job but really it was excruciatingly superficial and flippant and boringthe writing style and syntax were worth reading though which is why i will continue with other works by delany also because i am fairly certain that this will continue with other works by delany also because i am fairly certain that this is an outlier among delany s work and the issues i have with it are specific to this book in particular and i really shouldn t have started here after all because i do find delany in eneral to seem like he should be a thoughtful and interesting person and writer whose ideas And Writing I Am Still writing i am still in experiencing of BECAUSE he is known in sf literature for being different thoughtful incisive wordy conceptually novel think i ll finally read dhalgren next but not until this summer maybe Delany is one of my favourite writers but it has taken me a long time to et round to reading this one In fact Triton has been on my bookshelves since 1993 I think I was intimidated by the appendix on metalogic It looks like a difficult novel but that s really an illusion It s a beautifully written complex but totally accessible and engaging workThe main character Bron Helstrom is simultaneously likeable and infuriating perceptive and unaware an authentic personality on the page The background events of his life in an ambiguous heteropotia include a devastating war between the inner worlds and the outer satellites that is presented slightly obliuely and very convincingly And the society in which Bron has chosen to make his home is constructed with brilliant imagination and attention to detail It s Everyone talks about how this is a political or cultural or social exploration novel and that s all true but what fascinates me about it is how incredibly PSYCHOLOGICAL it is The cultural and social stuff is pretty simple Samuel Delany has created here an honest to oodness utopia a world in which everyone can essentially be anyone they want to be You re a woman who wants to be a male homosexual No problem There s a community for you You want to have scales and a tail No problem There s a community for you You re white and you want to be black or orange No problem There s a community for you There seems to be a co.
