John Barth is one of the only writers that always succeeds in bringing about an unabashed feeling of love in me I love his work for many different reasons but the primary one is that it makes me love language and storytelling to see them as magical gifts of the muse of some divine spirit of humanity but who really cares where the gift comes from Every Third Thought as in almost every Barth book since the seminal The Sot Weed Factor is chock full of postmodern techniues deconstructive tendencies you name it Now I know that those of us experimental fiction lovers have always associated this stuff with Barth But somehow some people including some very excellent writers whom I won t name here have missed the point Barth s sentences aren t cold tricks they re not ironic they re not calculated They most definitely aren t flashy Nor are they meant to show off Barth s intellectAll of the negative criticism thrown at Barth namely that he s a masturbatory literary experimenter that his books have nothing to do with social and political reality are not only completely wrong on a literal level name a Barth book that doesn t deal with history in some capacity at least but on a metaphysical and even a spiritual levelI m going to go out on a limb here and say that Barth is one of the most spiritual writers of our time He doesn t write about god in a religious or any other nonsensical context rather he locates spirituality in language and storytelling themselves That s why the realist conventions of plot and character mean jack suat to him not that there s anything wrong with these conventions It s just that in showing us how stories get made Barth highlights the magical and spiritual powers of stories themselves When you read his books you re left realizing that all texts participate in the longstanding tradition of humanity trying to make sense of the world And it s the attempt at understanding that s holy for BarthYes I did use the word holy Barth himself probably wouldn t like my use of this word But it seems to me that instead of simply labeling Barth as a postmodernist or practicer of metafiction we should stop and think about what he s actually doing which is foregrounding the amazing continuity in storytelling and linguistic innovations that have bound the human race together since day oneFurther Barth s texts invite us to remember that s right remember the importance of each and every word that has ever passed through human lips or has been written or typed with human hands Words are the way we construct our own identities for ourselves and other people And the stories that they help us construct about other people and the world around us are the only vehicles we have to advance our understanding of anythingSo to be bawdy like Barth screw you to all the Barth detractors and those like J Franzen okay I had to drop the name of a hater who just don t get what Barth is up to I shouldn t say that they don t get it rather that they re than willing to supply dismissive labels to experimental writing Labeling after all is much easier than workingI know that Barth s masterworks The Sot Weed Factor Giles Goat Boy LETTERS and The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor are enormous but do yourself the challenge of picking one up Do the work especially if you want to learn from a master HOW TO WRITE Barth taught at Hopkins for many years You ll laugh your ass off be impressed by the master s passionate virtuosity and learn something about the way stories work The shorter fiction from Lost in the Funhouse and Chimera to Every Third Thought is a great way to get an intro to Barth But the man runs marathons and not sprints and the mega novel is his forteYou re right I haven t said much directly about Every Third Thought But I ve also said everythingRead this book Read Barth I mean the man s spent his entire career making Finnegans Wake a lot fun to read Those of you who know Barth know just what I mean
