Contrapunto es posiblemente la novela más ambiciosa y lograda de Huxley y la que dio mayor fama internacional, pues en ella da forma literaria al contrapunto musical, alternando acciones simultáneas que avanzan en paralelo y demostrando que eso es posible y funciona en una novela. Se convierte así en la historia personal de muchos personajes que se entrecruzan. En cierto modo, la novela relata la trayectoria vital de Rampión, un personaje que comparte algunas características con el escritor D.H. Lawrence, pero se trata de una novela coral cuyo mayor mérito es ser fiel reflejo de una sociedad llena de contradicciones e injusticias, la Inglaterra de entreguerras.

Having come across a reference to this novel in Bill Bryson's "History...", I was curious about the characters. Not my favourite Huxley novel, but it was an interesting portrait of life in the 1920s, amongst a circle of friends including artists and writers. One character was based on Huxley himself, and offered an incite to his own thoughts about his profession - a writer who talks about putting a writer in a story, who is writing a story about a writer...ad infinitum! Huxley also describes music, in a seemingly experimental way.
I enjoyed learning about the real life characters his fictional ones were based on, D. H. Lawrence, Augustus John, Charles Baudelaire, and John Murray. The later being the most humourous portrayal in the story - a publisher choosing submitted stories not by their merit, but instead on the chances of spending time with the female authors upon acceptance of their works. I enjoyed the letters he dictated to his secretary on acceptance or dismissal, I guess Huxley himself received both at some times in his literary pursuits.
Overall I was expecting more of the scientifically minded eccentric characters ( as suggested by Bill Bryson), but the tale transpired to be more about artists and writers, and not as funny as his other novels. ( )

Possibly daring for 1928, less so for 2019.

“A bad book is as much of a labor to write as a good one; it comes as sincerely from the author's soul.”

Indeed. ( )

Character #1 would say I think A. Character #2 would say I disagree I think B.

Character #3 would say I think C. Character #4 would say I disagree I think D.


Point.

Counterpoint.

> CONTREPOINT, d’Aldous Huxley, (Livre de Poche, 400 pages). — À lire (ou relire) pour savourer les paroles acérées et les usages secrètement codés de l'intelligentsia britannique des années vingt.
Livre prenant, écrit en 1928, avant Le meilleur des mondes, mais plus littéraire à mon sens. Un roman composé en forme de fugue, où les destins s'entrecroisent et où l'homme moderne est confronté à la « pensée positive » induite par la science et à la technologie.
Des analogies fortes avec L'homme sans qualité de Musil (la Vienne aristocratique d'avant la Grande Guerre).
Aldous Huxley sera plus tard influencé par la pensée indienne et le bouddhisme, et précurseur dans la découverte des effets des substances psychédéliques.

Aldous Huxley's "Point Counter Point," published in 1928, is a highly intellectual novel that delves into the complexities of human relationships and societal norms through a rich tapestry of characters and ideas. Unlike traditional narratives, the novel employs a musical counterpoint as a structural device, interweaving multiple plot lines and perspectives to explore the contradictions and conflicts inherent in human nature and society.

Set in the post-World War I era, the novel presents a cross-section of British society, featuring a diverse cast of characters including intellectuals, scientists, artists, and aristocrats. Each character embodies different philosophical and moral viewpoints, allowing Huxley to examine a wide range of themes such as the search for meaning in a post-war world, the conflict between intellect and emotion, the nature of relationships, and the pursuit of happiness.

Through the interactions and contrasts between these characters, Huxley critiques the social and cultural mores of his time, particularly the superficiality and moral vacuity of the upper classes. The novel is known for its satirical tone and its intellectual debates on science, religion, politics, and art. "Point Counter Point" is considered one of Huxley's major works, showcasing his ability to blend social commentary with a deep exploration of philosophical and existential questions. It reflects Huxley's preoccupation with the human condition and his skepticism about the capacity of society to foster genuine human fulfillment and ethical development.

Oh, wearisome condition of humanity,
Born under one law, to another bound,
Vainly begot and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound.
What meaneth nature by these diverse laws,
Passion and reason, self-division's cause?
