"This is perhaps an image of how we live."

The first three novels in this 12-volume series: A Question of Upbringing, A Buyer's Market and The Acceptance World, tracing the lives of the young male protagonists from their final year in school in the early 1920s to their years after university, discovering love, career, hope, loss, jealousy, society, and art.

Consistently enjoyable in its recreation of a world that for Powell was already his long-lost youth, and for my generation seems impossibly distant.

These first three volumes are the least exciting in the series, for my money, although the moments of high comedy often shine. But they gain much from the resonances they will leave for the remainder of the series. Perhaps now that I'm so abysmally old (gosh, nearing my mid-30s), I understand all the more how crucial, how seminal, how heartbreakingly eternal are the loves and joys of our youth. ( )

Tras la lectura de las 12 novelas que componen "Una danza para la música del tiempo", la hipótesis que saco es que Powell trata de mostrar que el mundo es un pañuelo y que la mayoría de la humanidad se parece a su tío Giles. La multitud de personajes se entrecruzan, aparecen y desaparecen en una especie de juego de billar con carambolas inusitadas continuas. Esta es su realidad literaria, una gran fe en la casualidad.
Eso de que Powell es el Proust británico es una etiqueta comercial para que entre a la primera. Ambos hablan de la sociedad de su tiempo, fijándose más en la alta sociedad, pero el trabajo de Proust es el de un joyero o de un artífice medieval de vidrieras. El de Powell está más cercano al periodístico o del que levanta acta porque estaba allí.
Estaba allí con su cámara como un testigo mudo, rompiendo algún plato de refilón. Su mujer, que forma parte principal de la sociedad que describe, también la mantiene desaparecida, como si estuviera en casa con la pata quebrada. Hacia el final del ciclo, el narrador y señora adquieren protagonismo, ya hablan y asumen su corporeidad.
Hay algunos pasajes en los que el autor trata de describir lo inefable que suenan a hueco. Destaco éste: "Dio la impresión de que a Widmerpool lo desconcertaban más las implicaciones de las palabras de Pamela que la ironía de su tono" (IV, pág. 420). Es una apuesta muy fuerte creer qué desconcertaba más a un personaje, si las palabras o la ironía. Es un lujo frágil que se puede permitir un narrador.
El traductor tiene un grave problema con los pronombres le, la, lo. Los utiliza a voleo. También, siguiendo la simplificación del lenguaje, le gusta mucho lo de "escuchar" y poco lo de "oír".

I am trying to read the whole series over the course of a year by reading one volume each months. This book collects the first 3 volumes. There is a fairly vast number of characters already, but the rather deadpan and detached narrator keeps it all manageable. Each book really seems to constitute around 3 or 4 long chapters, each one describing at length some sort of social event in the narrators life. I'm really enjoying these glimpses into British life in the 1920s and 1930s amongst quite a mix of upper class and more bohemian society. The comparison to Proust is clear and maybe a more English take on that is just what I needed. These are also much quicker to read due to being composed of sentences of a normal length. ( )

A perceptive writer and an easy read, although the book requires some thought here and there, in order for the reader to fully appreciate the author's insights into character.

Add another star if you are an Anglophile, or are interested in England between the wars, or are old enough to reminisce about those years.

Remove a star if you are young and don't care about those years in England. ( )

I first began to read Dance when it was incomplete and there was something to look forward to. The pleasure then afforded was rather greater than that which is offered by a long look back.
