Styron just presented them as they are and so the first choice – who is the better man – should have been very hard for Sophie. First, the tragedy of the Holocaust, as symbolized by Sophie and Nathan.

Here, the effort was successful. By our parents, our caretakers. This book made me laugh. I was still moronically in love with her. Puccini’s Chrisantemi, the Chrysanthemums, an old piece but only recently rediscovered.

Who could do it?

La decisión de Sophie : William Styron :

He is so good I can’t wait to have a second serving. This book, ed we all know, is largely about guilt. The theme is racism in all fronts: He is a navel gazer of the first order.


With each turn of the page, something new develops, some story unwinds, some secret is revealed. And this prejudiced yet genius of a charmer, suffers from fatal capricious fits. The writing about the holocaust is riveting, horrifying and heartbreaking I felt like vomitting from horror once or twice, felt my stomach clenching many times. Aug 13, Dan rated it it was amazing Shelves: It is narrated in the first person by a young, transplanted southerner who calls himself Stingo.

Nathan stron provided perfect dentures for her. I have never heard the I was surprised by this book; it wasn’t what I expected. He is dealing with the present in which he is writing the book. The reveal of this information instantly brought a comparison of Stingo to Quentin Compson.

There are only 3 main characters in this book but I could almost feel them rising up from the pages of this book.

Sophie, the beautiful Polish non-Nazi Holocaust survivor has to choose who to end up with between her two lovers, the Jewish Ve Landau who is a crazy junkie but who brought her to America and the struggling American, Stingo who is also the narrator of the story.

StingoNathan LandauSophie Zawistowska. Styron’s method of telling Sophie’s story is a master stroke of plotting.

This is how Styron gets you to stick with this intricately woven and stylistically stupendous novel. Of course it could; if we can’t prove this exact story, we have ample proof of stories deciison it. It seems done not to prove a point but to give the book some tragic affect though it comes off beyond contrived.


Sophie’s Choice by William Styron

Our decisions are made for us. In no way would I characterize it as erotica. Not only is he close to impoverished and lonesome, he is lonesome for female company. He believed Lebensborn children would grow up to lead a Nazi-Aryan nation. Being away from His warm body fully explains our constant yearning.

Stingo, a young aspiring writer from the South who befriends the Jewish scientist Nathan Landau and his lover Sophie, a Polish Catholic survivor of the German Nazi concentration camps.

The other Sophie’s choice should be hidden as it is the best part of the book. Secrets and lies unfolding with each new chapter.
