THE AERODROME was first published in 1941, a time of enormous peril in Britain. Understandably it took a while for the book to catch on. But when it took root, it flowered mightily. To this day it receives praise not only for its inherent drama and excitement, but for its political and human statements as well. THE AERODROME is an allegory that pits the order and ruthlessness of a military organization against the sensible muddle of a middle-class village. In the author's view, adaptability THE AERODROME was first published in 1941, a time of enormous peril in Britain. Understandably it took a while for the book to catch on. But when it took root, it flowered mightily. To this day it receives praise not only for its inherent drama and excitement, but for its political and human statements as well. THE AERODROME is an allegory that pits the order and ruthlessness of a military organization against the sensible muddle of a middle-class village. In the author's view, adaptability is all; judged by this test, the military cannot get its bat up."Probably the only work of its time to understand the appeal of fascism and the less confident, though finally stronger, answer of democracy."

The Aerodrome: A Love Story - used book

ISBN: 1566630258

ID: 3782663

First published in 1941, The Aerodrome is one of the few works of fiction in the twentieth century to understand the dangerous yet glamorous appeal of fascism and the less than satisfactory answer of traditional democracy?and to transmute their deadly opposition into terms of enduring art. Mr. Warner brilliantly invents, on one side, a thoroughly degenerate Village representing fallen man, and on the other side a great Aerodrome dedicated to ruthless efficiency. The ideological struggle between the idealistic Air Vice-Marshal and the hero-narrator from the Village is portrayed with poetry, narrative speed, and great simplicity of language. It is a great symbolic novel of our time. "The value of The Aerodrome as literature becomes increasingly apparent at each rereading ... an intensely original work."?Anthony Burgess. "A moral dialogue thrown into narrative form. It is humanity versus power, sprawling fife versus death-dealing regimentation.... A parable worth reading."?New York Times. "The beauty of his prose, unsurpassed by any living English writer, has nothing to do with `fine writing' but springs from a sound moral core and from an intelligence with the keenest edge."?C. Day Lewis. classics,contemporary,democracy,ideologies and doctrines,literary,literature and fiction,politics and government,politics and social sciences Democracy, Ivan R. Dee
