hen critics say Confederacy is not true-to-life because it’s full of despicable characters; unlikely situations; and plot-holes, I have to wonder what kind of lives they have—because that’s a near perfect description of mine. JKT is (was) a master at turn-of-phrase with a gift for writing large the theater-of-the-absurd, but that’s not really why I love this book so much.
I re-read aCoD every three to five years for a “humility tune up.” The book is a highly polished soul mirror that’s a lot more true-to-life than most people want it to be. Ignatius, or “His Royal Malignancy” as I like to call him, is the central character, and an extreme example of an arrogant bastard with absolutely nothing to be arrogant about, but the whole book is like a case study for John Calvin’s doctrine of total depravity; everyone in it is—to some degree–indelibly screwed up. I suspect this is why so many people hate this book. At some point they see themselves here and realize that the depth of their own depravity is invariably greater than they suspected, realized, or certainly would ever have cared to admit.
If you love Ignatius J. Reilly, there is probably something really wrong with you, but if you hate him—there definitely is. Either way, you’re doomed.
Confederacy Of Dunces Epub
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize
“A masterwork . . . the novel astonishes with its inventiveness . . . it is nothing less than a grand comic fugue.”—The New York Times Book Review
A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole’s hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is “huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans’ lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures” (Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times).
