Come, My Beloved by Pearl S. Buck -- Review

Come, My Beloved by Pearl S.Buck

Reviewed by Alex Canton-Dutari

This book, which the 1938 Nobel Literature Prize Winner dedicates to India dwells in a subject that though written decades ago has validity in the XXIst Century, that of diversity and equality.

The author suggests that true equality, though tightly embraced can falter when confronted on a personal level and put to a personal test – at the family level. The message is driven stronger to the reader’s social consciousness through an almost absence of her usual narrative poetry.

This is an author that should be read by all aspiring literary writers. The differences and subtleties of both narrative prose and narrative poetry are worth learning.
