review The White Lantern Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Evan S Connell over the last half century has published nineteen books of fiction poetry and essays several of which—including the best sellers Mrs Bridge and Mr Bridge and the erudite anecdotal and totally uniue nonfiction book Son of the Morning Star—are American classics I've admired his work for many years since first reading Diary of a Rapist and was happy for a chance to inter.

    review The White Lantern Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB The White LanternPicked up this book because Dud was reading it on Lodge 49 and I'd read Connell's Son of the Morning Star previously Really enjoyed The White Lantern Historical essays on less mainstream stuff like Vikings South Pole Exploration and Astronomy There's an undercurrent of wry humor borderline sarcasm throughout the book that I think I misunderstood initially Connell pokes fun at a lot of the blunders and missteps explorers and scientists have made in their efforts to understand our world and our universe But I think ultimately he's making the point that as much as we think we've learned and are certain of we probably still don't know the half of it

    review The White Lantern Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB The White LanternI have to give this 5 stars because Connell somehow managed to write an educational historical book of essays something I would normally never touch for leisure and made it all thoroughly entertaining interesting and enjoyable The man can write Whether science is his topic or science fiction history or literature the dude can write

    review The White Lantern Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB The White LanternA seuel of sorts to Connell's A Long Desire every bit as mind blowing to anyone unfamiliar with its subjects the exploration often by eccentrics of forgotten ignored or misunderstood realms and perhaps a tad tedious given that its essays are with a single exception longer than those in Desire Still it's than worthy of a read If only there were books like it

    review The White Lantern Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB The White LanternA great book A Long Desire was mostly about man's desire and find This one focuses on what e know enough about to KNOW but have lost enough of to never know for sure The Mayans the Etruscans et al The essay is a lost art and Connell was a master of it


  • J. Dunn

    review The White Lantern Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB The White LanternThis is a pretty cool book of sprawling essays on obscure but interesting history stuff like the Vikings in Greenland early anthropology and the many hoaxes and misapprehensions it overcame and the nastier details of Antarctic exploration
