A masterwork which needs to be filmed by a Catholic producerAt 1224 pages Hervey s 1933 masterwork is not light reading for a twenty first century person used to tweets or posts of limited characters However it would be as ridiculous to ignore this masterpiece as it would be not to read the major and hefty volumes by great authors like Dickens or Dos PassosIf you watched the 1936 film version of the novel then try to erase those images from your mind As is the case with other novels adapted to the screen so much is lost when a novel is transferred to film Only a diligent reading of this massive work will convey numerous important images and ideasWhat is missing from the film which the book labors to develop Here are six1 Sophisticated literary allusions If it s true that Americans have lost common knowledge and it is then having one s smartphone or Internet at hand will be an immeasurable help for contemporary readers to understand historic personages or movements whether referencing Byzantine iconography or Napoleonic generals and nineteenth century political leaders2 Anthony s profound and lifelong devotion to the Virgin Mary personalized by a Madonna statute which Anthony carried with him from boyhood to his adult life no matter what social becoming a slaver or sexual sins he committed The destruction of Anthony s Madonna statue in the Epilogue at the hands of ignorant Americans is thus especially poignant3 An extension of the above the importance of Catholic Christianity in Anthony s life Although his faith is as feeble as any millennial s in 2019 his recognition of God as the Supreme Power in the universe his devotion to the Virgin Mary as the mother of Jesus and his desire to do what is right testify to his inherent Catholic Christianity This bildungsroman is as much about Anthony s acceptance of his Catholic faith as much as it is about slavery and sex the two topics which Hollywood in the 1936 film version tried to emphasize4 The crucifixion of Brother Francois in chapter 45 at the hands of Islamic slavers who forced Africans into slavery5 A profound respect for the body and its importance in human life This is especially uniue since the novel written in 1933 anticipates St John Paul II s Theology of the Body by decades6 Wonderful sexual passages such as those in chapters 4 and 5 which show Anthony s delight of heterosexuality Granted some of the sexual activity is fornication but the literary treatment of such sinful activity is still respectfully depicted After all sex is a wonderful God given activity between a husband and wife that Anthony chooses sometimes to indulge his sexual appetite like an animal is evidence of his fault not evidence of the inherent fault of the activity a hard lesson for twenty first century readers to understand since they think that sex is only recreational and not a divinely inspired activity for married personsI look forward to the time when the novel can be filmed anew showing all its magnificent detail sexual escapades and theological implications Doing so would obviously remove it from Hollywood s jurisdiction since as everyone now knows can you say Harvey Weinstein Hollywood is just a cesspool of leftist activity which corrupts everything it touches into a mere pornographic or LGBT diatribeAny Catholic producer willing to take up this challenge Mel Gibson where are you If so I can smell the Oscars already
