No description available, No description available, Starting in Jean Genet petty thief prostitute modernist master spent two years in the Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan Always an outcast himself Genet was drawn to this displaced people an attraction that was to prove as complicated for him as it was enduring i Prisoner of Love i written some ten years later when many of the men Genet had known had been killed and he himself was dying is a beautifully observed description of that time and those men as well as a reaffirmation of the author s commitment not only to the Palestinian revolution but to rebellion itself For Genet s most overtly political book is also his most personal the last step in the unrepentantly sacrilegious pilgrimage first recorded in i The Thief s Journal i and a searching meditation packed with visions ruses and contradictions on such life and death issues as the politics of the image and the seductive and treacherous character of identity Genet s final masterpiece is a lyrical and philosophical voyage to the bloody intersection of oppression terror and desire at the heart of the contemporary world, This is the third of Genet s prose works to be published in America following i Our Lady of the Flowers i and i The Thief s Journal i It is however Genet s second novel having been written in La Sant and Tourelles prisons in directly after i Our Lady of the Flowers i Like that first work i Miracle of the Rose i was written in the solitude of a prison cell on the pieces of white paper the penal authorities furnish the convicts for making paper bags br br The work is set in the State prison of Fontevrault It is the height of the German Occupation and in the prisons of France the convicts barely subsisting on near starvation rations spend their endless days weaving camouflage nets for their German conquerors i Miracle of the Rose i is first of all an account of life at Fontevrault during that period But Genet is no realist and his account of prison life is an extraordinary mixture of dream and reality past and present br br If Fontevrault is the present of his narrative the past is the Mettray Reformatory the almost idyllic flower covered prison colony for boys to which he was sent for theft as a mere child It was here at Mettray that he was initiated into the life of confinement into the world of the criminals and homosexuals in which he was to live for the next twenty five years Genet s story moves back and forth between Fontevrault and Mettray almost without the reader s being aware of the transition Doubtless in Genet s mind there is no transition Both prisons and both times fuse into one immense and erotic dream br br The boys at Mettray do not pity or despise the hardened criminals at neighboring Fontevrault on the contrary they are the saints the boys look up to the heroes they hope to emulate More than fifteen years after his precocious arrival at the Mettray Reformatory Genet finally reaches the Fontevrault Prison Among the pimps and big shots the crashers and chickens that form the homosexual hierarchy of the convict criminal society he finds again many of his former boyhood friends and lovers br br Foremost among them is Harcamone a character notable in the narrative for his off stage presence Harcamone has been condemned to death for having killed the only guard at Fontevrault who had ever shown him the least bit of kindness During the month and a half prior to his execution his presence from his solitary cell on death row both encompasses and dominates the prison At one point as Harcamone passes Genet in the prison corridor the author has a vision in which he sees the chains that bind Harcamone miraculously flower into a garland of white roses br br i Miracle of the Rose i contains many such visions wherein Genet taking the dross of evil transmutes it into a work of beauty
