  • "Jacob Jump," by Eric Morris - Southern Literary Review
    the narrative fails in its attempt which is supposed to be less the narrator s moral consciousness and more the development of Verdery s moral consciousness There s a dust jacket blurb that argues that Jacob Jump is half hallucinatory prose poem and half mythic journey Hallucinatory presumes however that the perception of objects or events distorts a compelling sense of reality the result of a medical disorder The experience if I remember my Carlos Castaneda properly is a kind of gustatory visual experience not existing outside the mind Language is a force of course and like the Savannah River is a force that flows or is sucked along There s debris and detritus of course Here s the first paragraph in Chapter Two Verdery breathed deep into his lungs the wet solemn air remembering the taste of it On the levee the air changed into the color of night and a deep separate blue hung like water smoke At the old drawbridge he searched the far shore lights There a houseboat had become more a lean to with a vapor streetlamp for a porch light Above that on the bank and into the trees more dim porchlights where squatters were now community and their nightlights peeked softened gauzed in the summer haze Across a little village named Hamburg once lived and from Hamburg to Charleston the first passenger rail line in America was built In 1814 Henry Shulz dreamed his Hamburg would rival Augusta He left Germany and boated an ocean and built a bridge across the Savannah and a decent wharf to secure an inland port to trade cotton and tobacco running round trip steamboats to Charleston ten days travel But the Augustans and more than that the river would kill the dream and when he died they buried him in the Carolina sand with his back to Georgia as he asked The floods and freshets washed Hamburg away and now a few frame houses survived and the freight trains only sounded as they passed making restively for Augusta emphasis added At the passage s beginning the center of interest is Verdery s consciousness and there s a delightful lingering spirit to the language What follows however does not pass for either an apologetic or gravity even the tone changes and what was interesting becomes uninteresting The cut to historical minutiae offers no increase in revelation Thus this editorial comment needs to be made I m reminded of the story of North Carolina writer Thomas Wolfe of Look Homeward Angel fame There s the anecdote describing how Wolfe wrote his manuscripts on legal sized notebook paper a feverished scrawl 10 000 words or so per day He would haul the lengthy manuscript to Max Perkins who would perform due surgery disciplining what was undisciplined Wolfe suffered during these editorial moments but the editorial paring knife used by Perkins peeled the surplus skin What was left became the novel In the course of their river journey Verdery and Rhind
