"Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch -- "Scout"--Returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise's homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in a painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past -- a journey that can be guided only by one's conscience. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision -- a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic." -- Book jacket.… (més)

    Matar un rossinyol de Harper Lee (JuliaMaria, KayCliff)
    JuliaMaria: Harper Lee hat nur zwei Bücher veröffentlicht. Das zweite - "Gehe hin, stelle einen Wächter" - erst mit 90 Jahren - auch wenn es schon früher geschrieben wurde. Es war die literarische Sensation des Jahres 2015.

I definitely liked some parts of the book, but I don’t know how I feel about it. I liked revisiting familiar characters and I liked the flashbacks and her relationship with Hank. But that’s about all. Atticus’s new attitude was jarring and felt, at least at first, like a complete betrayal. I suppose that was the only way for Lee to invoke Scout’s own feelings of confusion and betrayal, but it felt a little forced. It makes me want to reread Mockingbird to see if Atticus’s apparent love of justice, not equality, can be seen in hindsight.

What first made hesitant was Lee’s usage of the belief in states’ rights as the common ground. Southern memory of the Civil War tends to replace slavery with states’ rights in order to avoid answering the question of who was right and who was wrong. It’s a false sense of just cause. No one spoke of states’ rights until the war was over - Apostles of Disunion discusses this in detail.

From there, we careen wildly. The climax is never resolved in any fulfilling way. Scout is told she is a bigot for not listening to the actual bigots. In fact, the ultimate message seems to be “blacks and whites are just different.”

The focus of the book is a white woman’s struggle to form her own individual conscience. It is not a discussion of segregation- we never even find out what happens to Zeebo!

I am very disappointed that claims to be a sequel seems to have moved decades backwards in American racial thinking.

This novel begins with Jean Louise Finch traveling on a train from New York City where she has been for 5 years going home to Maycomb, Alabama, for her annual visit. Henry Clinton, her old childhood friend and beau, picks her up at the train station 20 miles outside of Maycomb. Things have changed in Maycomb since her childhood. There is unrest between the African Americans and the white residents which seems to be due to the 1954 Supreme Court decision, Brown v. The Board of Education although this particular decision is not named in the book. Jean Louise observes a Community Council meeting one Sunday afternoon that calls into question everything she has believed about her father and Henry. Calpernia has retired, Jem has died at 22, Uncle Jack has returned to Maycomb, and Aunt Alexandria now lives with her brother Atticus to keep house and help him out. ( )

I liked this much more than I thought I would. There were surely uneven places in the narrative but it is a book I will probably read again because there is a lot happening. I did not want to read it because I believe Harper Lee was hoodwinked into agreeing to its publication. I did not reread To Kill a Mockingbird so to see this with fresh eyes. ( )

And so beneath Atticus’s style of enlightenment is a kind of bigotry that could not recognize itself as such at the time. The historical and human fallacies of the Agrarian ideology hardly need to be rehearsed now, but it should be said that these views were not regarded as ridiculous by intellectuals at the time. Indeed, Jean Louise/Lee herself, though passionately opposed to what her uncle and her father are saying, nevertheless accepts the general terms of the debate as the right ones.

Go Set a Watchman is a troubling confusion of a novel, politically and artistically, beginning with its fishy origin story. .. I ached for this adult Scout: The civil rights movement may be gathering force, but the second women's movement hasn't happened yet. I wanted to transport Scout to our own time — take her to a performance of Fun Home on Broadway — to know that, if she could only hang on, the possibilities for nonconforming tomboys will open up. Lee herself, writing in the 1950s, lacks the language and social imagination to fully develop this potentially powerful theme.

Despite the boldness and bravery of its politics, Go Set a Watchman is a very rough diamond in literary terms … it is a book of enormous literary interest, and questionable literary merit.
afegit per Widsith | editaThe Independent, Arifa Akbar (Jul 13, 2015)
 
It is, in most respects, a new work, and a pleasure, revelation and genuine literary event, akin to the discovery of extra sections from T S Eliot’s The Waste Land or a missing act from Hamlet hinting that the prince may have killed his father.
afegit per Widsith | editaThe Guardian, Mark Lawson (Jul 12, 2015)
 
Watchman is both a painful complication of Harper Lee’s beloved book and a confirmation that a novel read widely by schoolchildren is far more bitter than sweet. Watchman is alienating from the very start.

"Every man's island, Jean Louise, every man's watchman, is his conscience." "There is no such thing as a collective conscious".
"Aunty," she said, cordially, "why don't you go pee in your hat?"
I need a watchman to lead me around and declare what he seeth every hour on the hour.  I need a watchman to tell me this is what a man says but this is what he means, to draw a line down the middle and say here is this justice and there is that justice and make me understand the difference. I need a watchman to go forth and proclaim to them all that twenty-six years is too long to play a joke on anybody, no matter how funny it is.
I was taught never to take advantage of anybody who was less fortunate than myself, whether he be less fortunate in brains, wealth, or social position; it meant anybody, not just Negroes. I was given to understand that the reverse was to be despised. That is the way I was raised, by a black woman and a white man.
I detest the sound of it as much as its matter
