The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt Summary

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2014 Aged thirteen, Theo Decker, son of a devoted mother and a reckless, largely absent father, survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in New York, he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother, and down the years clings to the thing that most reminds him of her: a small, strangely captivating painting that ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld. As he grows up, Theo learns to glide between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love - and his talisman, the painting, places him at the centre of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle. The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling power. Combining unforgettably vivid characters and thrilling suspense, it is a beautiful, addictive triumph - a sweeping story of loss and obsession, of survival and self-invention, of the deepest mysteries of love, identity and fate.

The Goldfinch by Donna Tart Summary

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE "The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind....Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction."--Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art. As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love--and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle. The Goldfinch is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate.

CORKY, PEGGY AND THE GOLDFINCH by Warren W. Evans Summary

Is there an experience as profound, as indefinable, as cherished, as savoured as fresh love, that sweet love in youth? As if on cue, we are wrenched away from the frivolities of childhood and launched into a new awakening of soul and self. The mere touch of a gentle hand, the soft gaze of dewy bright eyes, the gait, the strength of voice, the flick of a lock of hair stirs within us urgent passions and yearnings that Nature had set aside for us, latent and dormant. But what recollection of youth can be held more dear than that first kiss of a first love? It is the treasure of our memorabilia. This is, for the most part, a love story that had its stirrings in a most unusual place in Canada, and which began with Warren’s first kiss from his first love. This is a story for all those who have known love, real love! This is also a story of “memories,” safeguarded and cherished. But then, there is much more ...

The Wanderer Archetype in Donna Tartt’s Novel "The Goldfinch" by Oliver Tumbo Summary

Essay from the year 2014 in the subject American Studies - Literature, , language: English, abstract: The Goldfinch is a novel by Donna Tartt wherein it contains a story as told by Theodore Decker (Theo) in a retrospective first-person narration. It is a story of a lad who loses his mother when a terrorist bomb explodes to kill her plus dozens of other attendants in an art fair. Theo finds himself alone but he becomes determined to evade the city which looks up to taking him as an orphan. This leads to Theo seeking refuge in a school friend’s, Andy Barbour, wealthy family residence. Theo Decker's desire to explore and better understand the world makes him a quintessential wanderer. The story ends as Theo travels around the world to make things right by purchasing the fake antiques which he had previously sold. This paper explores more about the wanderer archetype in Theo; one of Carl Jung’s twelve archetypes namely the caregiver, the creator, the explorer/wanderer, the hero, the innocent, the jester/fool, the lover, the magician, the orphan (ordinary boy or girl), the ruler, the outlaw and the sage. In the Jungian concept of the wanderer, a person with this archetype abandons the known to explore and discover the unknown.

Le Petit Copain by Donna TARTT Summary

Réédition du grand succès de Donna Tartt, vendu à près de 200.000 exemplaires depuis sa parution. Un roman sombre qui mélange la fantaisie de Mark Twain au charme de Carson McCullers et à la noirceur de William Faulkner... Tableau de la nostalgie familiale et du chagrin, Le Petit Copain explore l'univers du crime et du châtiment. D'une puissance narrative exceptionnelle, ce deuxième roman confirme le talent étincelant de l'auteur du Maître des illusions. Dans une petite ville du Mississippi, Harriet Cleve Dufresnes grandit dans l'ombre de son frère. Quand elle était encore bébé, celui-ci a été retrouvé mort, pendu à un arbre du jardin. Son meurtrier n'a jamais été identifié. Harriet, farouchement déterminée, d'une précocité remarquable pour ses douze ans et imprégnée de la littérature d'aventures de Stevenson, Kipling et Conan Doyle, décide un été de trouver l'assassin et d'exercer sa vengeance. Son unique allié dans cette quête, son copain Hely, lui est totalement dévoué. Mais ce qu'ils découvrent est bien éloigné de leurs jeux d'enfants : c'est un monde obscur d'adultes, chargé de menaces, où rôdent, hors de l'intimité familiale, des prédicateurs illuminés, des criminels, des trafiquants de drogue...

Le Maître des illusions by Donna TARTT Summary

Réédition du grand succès de Donna Tartt, vendu à près de 250.000 exemplaires depuis sa parution. Livre culte vendu à des millions d'exemplaires à travers le monde, le premier chef-d'oeuvre d'une jeune inconnue devenue une référence incontournable de la littérature américaine. Introduit dans le cercle privilégié d'une université du Vermont, un jeune boursier californien intègre peu à peu un petit groupe d'étudiants de la grande bourgeoisie. Il découvre un monde insoupçonné de luxe, d'arrogance intellectuelle et de sophistication, en même temps que l'alcool, la drogue et d'étranges pratiques dionysiaques. Très vite, il pressent qu'on lui cache quelque chose de terrible et d'inavouable, un meurtre sauvage et gratuit qui l'entraîne, lui et ses camarades, dans un abîme de chantage, de trahison et de cruauté. D'une lecture irrésistiblement prenante, cette chronique de l'illusion et de la complicité, de l'abandon aux rites antiques, de l'innocence corrompue par l'égoïsme et l'orgueil moral est aussi une histoire de culpabilité et de responsabilité. " Comme roman policier, c'est un des meilleurs que j'ai jamais lus. Comme premier roman, il m'a coupé le souffle, tant il est maîtrisé.
