Bartley Alexander a construction engineer is a middle aged man torn between Winifred his demanding American wife and Hilda Burgoyne his alluring British mistress Alexa. A man is caught between the marriage of his adulthood and the love affair from his youth loving both and realizing having both is not possible The bridge can be an obvious metaphor but instead of the usual symbol overshadowed by the divisions it joins or the obstacles it crosses there was some actual engineering speak I approveI haven't read much of Willa Cather's works so I'm not sure how it compares to her other writings or to that of other authors I guess I could say she does paint her scenery well There is that tasteful older style of fading to black for delicacyHer characterizations are crafted as in made with skill But it's the kind of skill that is a little off that finely carved sculpture of something that doesn't uite work All that's coming to mind is crass stuff but this wasn't crass More likeincomplete A Venus de Milo The two female vertices of the love triangle were flat They had no flaws at least this book wasn't long enough to describe them except that they lived for this man Maybe I'm viewing this through a modern lens but they don't read like actual feeling thinking women to me It's likely that the characters are just fine and just happen to grate on my shoulder chips of the momentReading about this bridge engineer reflecting on my own career my it's not fair nerve got tripped Reading about this disaster of relationships reflecting on my own my glad that's not me smugness was slightly inflated Normally this would lead to a dear diary splaying of my reflections However I find I no longer enjoy sharing the minutia of my despair You're welcome

Nder's relationship with Hilda erodes his sense of honor and eventually proves disastrous when a bridge he is constructing begins to collapse Alexander's Bridge is an. It is scientifically proven that Willa Cather is my favorite ever so I took the opportunity over winter break to read this little gem For a variety of reasons I have stacks and stacks of books that I want to read because I think they will be terrible or because someone recommended them to me so I feel an obligation I often forget to read books I think I will love And you know I think a lot of why I do that is because often I love the terrible books or the recommended books and they are so much social than books I’m drawn to on my own So this is not a social review and it is one of those reviews cursed by unconditional love and probably not very useful either for that reason The book itself is Cather’s first Like O Pioneers it is focused on plot than her later books which are much character driven Alexander’s Bridge is about two lovely women who are both lovely in different ways and it is about the way love works out for them The book is so careful in its plotting that it gets pretty predictable and there is a part about twenty pages before the pivotal moment where it’s pretty obvious what will happen But The description of the pivotal moment is one of those confusing action scenes where you can’t exactly tell where everyone’s standing or not standing so I wasn’t totally sure that my prediction had come true for a little while Those are probably faults of the book though they didn’t ruin anything for me For me the ending is about whether the ending itself is extremely just or extremely unjust I can’t decide Anyway that probably won’t mean anything to you because you probably have not and won’t read this book And you probably shouldn’t because others are better I do love it thoughNow I am going to tell you my Cather rankings1 O Pioneers2 My Antonia3 The short story Coming Aphrodite and all of Youth and the Bright Medusa but that one is my favorite favorite4 The Professor’s House5 My Mortal Enemy6 One of Ours7 Death Comes for the Archbishop8 Alexander’s Bridge9 The Song of the LarkI have all of her last three novels left to read as well as her poetry essays and the Hermione Lee biographies Those rankings aren’t totally fair though because I think that The Song of the Lark is by far the worst I’ve read of hers and I really love all of the others so I added a lot of spaces between them to make that clear Song of the Lark has a wonderful story within the story though so it’s good It’s just obviously the awkward transition from plot to character focus and the character focus is not very balanced at that point Protagonist is pretty ridiculous But it is the first that has a magical story within the story and those make my heart beat faster every time Anyway this is not supposed to be a review of that bookSo Alexander’s Bridge is about how the shadows of our youth can creep up behind us and ruin our lives if we let them – how we can’t live as who we are now and who we used to be even if we want to I think that is beautiful And this book is about seven pages long so it takes that on in a short sad way It was my favorite I’ve read in a while Esposa Humillada (Spanish Edition) you know I think a lot of why I do that is because often I love the terrible books or the recommended books and they are so much social than books I’m drawn to on my own So this is not a social review and it is one of those reviews cursed by unconditional love and probably not very useful either for that reason The book itself is Cather’s first Like O Pioneers it is focused on plot than her later books which are much character driven Alexander’s Bridge is about two lovely women who are both lovely in different ways and it is about the way love works out for them The book is so careful in its plotting that it gets pretty predictable and there is a part about twenty pages before the pivotal moment where it’s pretty obvious what will happen But The description of the pivotal moment is one of those confusing action scenes where Kto naprawdę go zabił? you can’t exactly tell where everyone’s standing or not standing so I wasn’t totally sure that my prediction had come true for a little while Those are probably faults of the book though they didn’t ruin anything for me For me the ending is about whether the ending itself is extremely just or extremely unjust I can’t decide Anyway that probably won’t mean anything to Masters of the Air you because Legacy of the Gods you probably have not and won’t read this book And The Dome Builders Handbook you probably shouldn’t because others are better I do love it thoughNow I am going to tell Pirelli World Rallying 2010-2011 you my Cather rankings1 O Pioneers2 My Antonia3 The short story Coming Aphrodite and all of Youth and the Bright Medusa but that one is my favorite favorite4 The Professor’s House5 My Mortal Enemy6 One of Ours7 Death Comes for the Archbishop8 Alexander’s Bridge9 The Song of the LarkI have all of her last three novels left to read as well as her poetry essays and the Hermione Lee biographies Those rankings aren’t totally fair though because I think that The Song of the Lark is by far the worst I’ve read of hers and I really love all of the others so I added a lot of spaces between them to make that clear Song of the Lark has a wonderful story within the story though so it’s good It’s just obviously the awkward transition from plot to character focus and the character focus is not very balanced at that point Protagonist is pretty ridiculous But it is the first that has a magical story within the story and those make my heart beat faster every time Anyway this is not supposed to be a review of that bookSo Alexander’s Bridge is about how the shadows of our Jewellery : From Art nouveau to 3D printing youth can creep up behind us and ruin our lives if we let them – how we can’t live as who we are now and who we used to be even if we want to I think that is beautiful And this book is about seven pages long so it takes that on in a short sad way It was my favorite I’ve read in a while
