Présentation de l'éditeur

The magnificent Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of a stranger in his native land

A young Native American, Abel has come home from a foreign war to find himself caught between two worlds. The first is the world of his father's, wedding him to the rhythm of the seasons, the harsh beauty of the land, and the ancient rites and traditions of his people. But the other world -- modern, industrial America -- pulls at Abel, demanding his loyalty, claiming his soul, goading him into a destructive, compulsive cycle of dissipation and disgust. And the young man, torn in two, descends into hell.

j'apprécie de lire une oeuvre de cet auteur nous partageant l'avant et après conquête de l'ouest et ses conséquences sur les différents générations, les points de vue, cependant, j'ai eu beaucoup de mal avec la 2eme partie, els passages religieux ou les longues, trèèès longues descriptions de paysages.. heureusement la 3eme partie sauve la mise !

An enlightening insight into the life and thinking of American Indians. It takes more than one reading to fully appreciate the complexities .Quite shocking a and gruesome in places. Well worth reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 In the beginning was the Word. 27 février 2002
Par Diane Schirf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"There was a house made of dawn," and N. Scott Momaday's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel begins with his Tano protagonist, Abel, "alone and running," yet "he seemed almost to be standing still, very little and alone." He may leave to fight the white man's war in Europe. He may seek solace in the arms of a white woman or two. He may be sent to prison for a crime that he sees as a necessity. He may end up attempting to work in the industrial world. Yet Abel cannot run from the seemingly boundless, stark land or the traditions with which his spirit is bound. The land, as enigmatic as he is, is there at the beginning and there at the end. It is the constant in his life from and to which he runs. In biblical terms, it is the alpha and omega of his being.
I first learned of House Made of Dawn from an excerpt in American Indian Literature: An Anthology (revised) edited and introduced by Alan R. Velie, in which Abel encounters the "white man," an albino Native who, although he appears only briefly in the novel, is one of modern literature's most compelling characters. Without saying a word, he emanates a vague menace with every look and motion. "Above the open mouth, the nearly sightless eyes followed the old man [Abel's grandfather] out of the cornfield, and the barren lids fluttered helplessly behind the colored glass." You will never forget the white man. "A man kills such an enemy if he can." The white man sets the tone for the rest of the novel.
Nor will you forget Abel's struggles, with his heritage and its expectations, with alcoholism, with his own body, with his own desires, his inability to find his place at home or in the modern white world, and with his emotional and physical pain.
There is the dichotomy of the prevalent Catholic faith, which finds itself oddly interwoven with Native belief in strange ways, as in the feast of Santiago held in Abel's town. The conflict comes to a head in Tosamah, Priest of the Sun, who reveals that "In the beginning was the Word" is all that we need to know of the essential Truth. But by adding and dividing and multiplying the Word, the white man subtracts the Truth-the Truth that eludes Abel. Tosamah says of his grandmother, "She had learned that in words and in language, and there only, she could have whole and consummate being."
House Made of Dawn is much like the life and land it portrays-mysterious and unyielding. There is little action here, but there is a mental and emotional landscape that is, like the backdrop, seared on the minds and hearts of those who experience it. Even the world cannot kill the Word and the rich inner life of a Tano.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Great Native American Novel 26 septembre 2003
Par Philip Carl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A few words to sum up my thoughts here: An American Classic. I would not hesitate to put this book on the required reading list for high school lit classes across the country (e.g., along side The Red Badge of Courage and The Catcher in the Rye). What a deep, insightful, emotional journey into the life of a man forced to exist in two completely different worlds. The world of his youth and later return is truly "the house made of pollen, house made of dawn." The other is post-war Los Angeles, California. (Some 35 years later and its still a hellhole.)
The way N. Scott Momaday structures the story may not appeal to all readers. You will want to take your time here, and it doesn't hurt to allow the images to take hold in your mind. Given the pure artistry of each scene in the book, you will be well rewarded.
In my honest opinion, it would be an injustice to the author and his work to attempt to render a nutshell, summary of the book. So, please excuse any attempt I made here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Writing at its Best 17 novembre 2000
Par D. Rachlin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Momaday's first of two novels (so far!) show any aspiring writer what to aim for. From his opening page to the last, we are treated with an amalgamation of myth, landscape, character and plot, clearly showing how 'author as mythmaker' can be accomplished without being ovedone. I have read this book several times and cannot get over how the land becomes more than setting; it becomes character. The intimate relationship that Momaday has with the southwest is obvious here, and should be a lesson to others who dare write about such sacred places in more superficial ways. Momaday is one of the countries leading writers, the first American Indian to win the Pulitzer prize, and a brilliant scholar. Anyone who has difficulty reading this book, as stated in other reviews here, clearly needs to reassess what one wants from literary fiction. This is not beach literature; he wants you to think and learn, besides understand. His novel structure is fantastic and asks the reader to go back, reread and comprehend. His descriptions of landscapes alone are worthy of many readings of this terrific novel.

Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

N. Scott Momaday is one of my favorite authors, and I'm currently working on a semester project centered on his work. I must warn you, this book isn't the one to pick up for a reading assignment the weekend before it's due. The style and structure of all his novels, ESPECIALLY House Made of Dawn, can either create a transcendent experience where words become magic, if digested slowly, or a tedious skimming of very long passages.... His style is very original and does not set out to impress and entrap; it's beauty happening, and if you want to join it, you can, but don't expect it to stop and rest for you. I think this isn't always so true in Momaday's work, therefore I would recommend those new to him to check out The Ancient Child (my absolute favorite and his best work in my opinion) first. Don't expect to be completely done with this particular book after the first reading, though.For those very curious about Momaday, this should not be the starting point. For those familiar with him already,the style here is very different from things like The Way to Rainy Mountain and the Names, it's more severe. The book is divided in time sets, and it uses stream-of-consciousness in a massive way in certain parts...the main character, Abel, will not be a hero or somebody who stirs sympathy. The construction of the book is just as broken and stark as he is, but his New Mexican days are only some shards of the story; the time in Los Angeles is just as silent and inexplicable. Murder, sex, acculturation, and loss are just things that emerge and submerge without prediction and focus in this book, but not in a crass way; rather, in a very severe and hopeless (but not fatalistic or frantic) way. The book has many layers, and the one just described is not the one I chose to focus on. The Kiowa tradition is present in this book, as in all of Momaday's books, but this time it its deeper than it seems, even though it seems deep. And the blurred depictions of loosely interconnected characters, namely Tosamah, add a necessary comedy [OK, during the prayer meeting with the peyote and all the disciples' reflecting aloud, I almost choked laughing. "I want to give you something. These words. Listen." How anyone could not find this a riot is beyond me.] and consciousness to the fragmented life depicted here in blurs that creates a very complex novel.
