Meanwhile, White had a more colorful life while now all the things he believed in seem empty, meaningless, driving him towards impending doom.
A dark, heavy, thought-provoking read. I also recommend the film if you're into minimalist, philosophical film-making. View all 4 comments. Who's that?
Who's who? Him over there staring at us. Beat's me. He's coming over. Nice evening ain't it. Can I help you? I've just been reading about you guys.
Three stars is about right. Excuse me? I see. Three don't sound too good a number to me. What's the problem?
Not you, and not you. Sunset Limited was good, but that's all it was. I certainly ain't giving it the red carpet treatment.
Long way off there I'm afraid. OK, you've made your point, now, three's a crowd, know what I'm saying? No problemo, good luck with that, but if you ask me you're wasting your time.

A powerful and philosophical story that questions everything humans hold onto, The Sunset Limited is a cross between science and faith that will make every reader question life and its meanings.

It'll evince little in the way of insight or thoughtfulness, but may feature a ten dollar word paraded here and there and which will hopefully go some way, as has been managed before, to aptly demonstrate that Sastrean horseshit can be moderated by ornate modulations lifted from my reviewing betters.
M It's better to burn out 'cause rust never sleeps So here's my first effort to shake off all of that oxidic accumulation garnered across months of melancholic mesmerization over a dropped wiener.
McCarthy has seemingly set out to shed textual poundage with every newer release from his maturing corpus—and The Sunset Limited is sparser and leaner than anything else I've read of his.
Bleaker, too, which is no mean feat to achieve. It lacks the arid violence and sanguinary supernatural swathes with which Blood Meridian was concocted, and even the umbral brooding and sin-soaked peregrinations of fugal works like Outer Dark ; but, the countervailing affirmative stretches provided by the spiritual energies splayed about this prose-play notwithstanding, I don't believe he's ever bleached the scenery of conscious existence of any and all hued traces more spartanly and effectively than he has within this dialectic workout.
I understand that it is Black who is being tested here, not the professorial, intellectual White whose train-tied self-termination was prevented by the rigors of the former's religious humanism White Devil is rather slyly implied herein and serves as the focal point for Black's rudimentary-but-impassioned efforts at breaching with his message of sustained existence via pungent faith and a heartfelt concern for the other.
Yet it never tangibly feels like his beliefs are being shaken or probed to a perilous degree—that this will prove a dark night indeed for his soul—whereas White's cold and negatory pursuit, with no past emotions or history or expressiveness, beyond vague intimations, to enliven its dispassionate destructiveness, aligns the reader more towards apathetic acceptance in lieu of disturbed contemplation.
So it is that while there are some devastatingly beautiful phrases, some potently effective interlocutions between two who respectively can and won't ontologically make do, especially as we approach the terminus, it is, in the end, rather thin gruel McCarthy has served; one little helped by the stereotypes exhibited by these monochromatic allotropes notwithstanding that their names explicitly delineate that this will be a sharply and starkly halved production and the fact that the abstracted, everyman quality that permeates the entirety renders the exchange ultimately too sophomoric and threadbare to achieve any marked degree of resonance once the final page has been reached.
Perhaps all this is naught but a reflection of my jaded self, all tight-lipped and cold-footed, pruned unto existential desiccation such that I cannot discern the meat laden upon this parleying duo's bones—but be that as it may, it failed to stir me in a manner commensurate to what I surmise must have been the author's intention.
The Sunset Limited is a good read, not a great one—and since it's McCarthy we're talking about here, that's to be regretted.

It is a dialogue that is essentially about suicide and religion. There are two characters. One man, a black man "black" , had a terrible life and was in jail for years and did horrible things, such as murder and other crimes he never specifies, but now lives with virtually nothing, trying to do God's will and trying to help his brother man.
He "rescued" a white Professor of English "white" , who had tried to throw himself before a train The Sunset Limited is a very powerful piece of literature.
He "rescued" a white Professor of English "white" , who had tried to throw himself before a train called The Sunset Limited. I am both of these guys.
Fortunately, even though I can remember other times, I am much more "black" than "white" these days. Each man eloquently puts forth his position.
It is at times funny, at times breathtaking, and at times it strikes to your bone with truth. At one point, in a devastating condemnation of the brutality unerlying all existence and its utter meaninglessness, white says, "Whatever the darker story is, that's the one that's usually true.
The play keeps you engaged, hoping for the white man to walk away from his resolve to kill himself, but knowing that a turn-around conversion to the kind of salvation black keeps confidently returning to would be very difficult to believe in.
Black gives up his power, letting God fill him and speak for him, waiting for his mouth to be filled with divinely inspired words to save white.
White has too much power over himself and is completely impermeable to any kind of spiritual thinking. His rigorous intellectualism takes him to a dead end where the only answer is death, a death that he sees as positive and yearns for.
While much of the play has a certain warmth due to black's character and his sense of humor, by the time The Sunset Limited nears its end, white's vitriolic sentences about the "human condition" and his yearning for death stun the reader into a gaping-jaw shock by the power of their perversity and their revelation of [Cormac McCarthy]'s only-occasionally-unfettered full powers of language as the ultimate art.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes their coffee strong and their whiskey straight. This is a book about big issues, life and death.
It never reverts to allegorization and it doesn't apologize for its characters' ways of speaking or their belief in the message of what they are saying.

He offers the sad reality of what life means to two very different men. Despite the dark tone, the play reads extremely well, the dialogue is direct and penetrating.
McCarthy is one of the best writers of our time. Mmm Hmmm. McCarthy gone done it. He gone eclipsed Beckett hisslef. Desolation, I like them sound of that trickbag.
Was that a re-enactment of Eden, with an angel substituted for the devil? Will man fail in either case? I am not up to it, as I said.
All aboard The Sunset Limited. Thought provoking piece. The book didn't disappoint. Pared down and packed with substance - dark dark humour to boot - Can written dialogues get any better?
Sep 21, Lee Bullitt rated it really liked it Recommends it for: people who like stereotypes, sorry just kidding. But there were some great things to learn from either character.
As in "the black stood up", but just because Black starts calling White "professor" suddenly all his stage directions say " this was a good book and I'm sad to say I had to sympathize a lot with what White had to say, because I often feel the same way.
As in "the black stood up", but just because Black starts calling White "professor" suddenly all his stage directions say "the professor did this and that".
Was that really fair now? I mean really, was it necessary? And also, why is it that whenever a white person has to learn something from a black person, that black person can never be a normal, well-spoken middle or upper class person?
It's always some perceivably ignorant black guy who's ben in jail and has "learned a thing or two" from it, or some black girl, equally as perceivably ignorant in speech etc, that has gotten pregnant or something.
Ummmmm why? Those are not the only examples of blacks in the world? Aug 19, Iulia rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , read , to-review.
Review to come. Have you ever been stoned? Where every single goddamn song is the best song ever written, life is the simplest navigable journey imaginable, and you have figured out that there are no secrets to the universe, only questions to which you have all the answers?
Let me explain, but with some personal exegesis. I spent a lot of my years in vario Have you ever been stoned? I spent a lot of my years in various states of the above sitting on porches, balconies, and in backyards talking epistemology.
You know, real deep kid shit. Chances are, if you liked to hamper your frontal lobe like I did, you had similar moments of profundity—the metaphysical midpoint between mutual masturbation and Dark Side of the Moon.
Some extra love given for White Wickedness and heresy. Points deducted for the soul food dinner. Still, there are worse ways to kill minutes.
Honest work comes immediately to mind. View all 9 comments. May 04, Jeremy rated it it was amazing Shelves: american-fiction , play-drama , cormac-mccarthy.
This doesn't have the same meat to it that Mccarthy's other dramatic works do. The Gardener's Son and the Stonemason are bother informed by this really keen sense of place, but the sunset limited has this enforced sort of anonymity to it.
Which makes sense given its stripped down parable-ish nature. But that's also what makes it more jarring and gives it it's dark edge.
White's last two monologues are probably among the bleakest things Mccarthy's ever written. Even The Road, with it's obvious ap This doesn't have the same meat to it that Mccarthy's other dramatic works do.
Even The Road, with it's obvious apocalypticism, doesn't feel as outright brutal as the end of The Sunset Limited. Goes to show you don't need a poetic vision to create a howling, nihilistic void.
All you need are two people talking. Jan 12, Jesse rated it it was ok. I guess it was bound to happen some time.
Cormac McCarthy finally disappointed me. It opens in medias res, after Black who is black just saved White who is white from leaping in the path of a train, The Sunset Limited, in an attempted suicide.
The ex-con Black tries to convince White that suicide is not the solution, telling his own story of Christian redemption. Wh I guess it was bound to happen some time.
White, whom Black calls "Professor," argues that life is nothing but pointless labor. Guess who wins the argument. Hint: this ain't a comedy.
I had a couple problems with it. For one thing, the racial dynamic came off as patronizing. Black had some blatant "magical Negro" characteristics.
McCarthy is fantastic at dialog and bringing dialects to life from the page, but his ebonics here were over-the-top and not always convincing.
I get that he's limited by the stage and wants to do something different from his books, but this is all build-up and no action.
Black recounts the jailhouse fight CMcC loves those prison knife battles, doesn't he? There are beautiful, bleakly funny and brutally nihilistic passages, of course.
But it gets repetitive, even in a mere 60 pages. It's like one scene taken from a great play, then stretched far past its limit. Sep 30, Peycho Kanev rated it it was amazing.
White You give up the world line by line. And then one day you realize that your courage is farcical. It doesnt mean anything.
Everything you do closes a door somewhere ahead of you. And finally there is only one door left. White Yes. White Getting snatched off a subway platform one morning by an emi White You give up the world line by line.
White Getting snatched off a subway platform one morning by an emissary of Jesus. White So am I. When you read the history of the world, you are reading a saga of bloodshed and greed and folly the import of which is impossible to ignore.
And yet we imagine that the future will somehow be different. I've no idea why we are even still here but in all probability we will not be here much longer.

I picked this up just after finishing The Road. Sunset Limited seems like one part of a very large idea that has been germinating in McCarthy's demented but somehow tender mind.
Mar 02, Ksenia Anske rated it really liked it. This was a delight, a quick smudge of darkness, with some humor in it, and some tough questions.
One long string of dialogue for you to swallow up and then sit and stare and ponder. Jan 20, Helen rated it really liked it.
I first heard about this book a little over 6 years ago, when a friend of mine was reading it at a writers' retreat. He said it was very different from McCarthy's other books, and interesting in the fact that it's a novel, written as a play.
He didn't say much of anything else about it, but I put it on the list to read, eventually. Well, that friend has since died, and I wish he hadn't, because I've now read the book, and I wish I could talk to him about it further, because in many ways, it was I first heard about this book a little over 6 years ago, when a friend of mine was reading it at a writers' retreat.
Well, that friend has since died, and I wish he hadn't, because I've now read the book, and I wish I could talk to him about it further, because in many ways, it was kinda like discussions this friend and I had on that weekend, a discussion between a person of faith and a person without, though, unlike White, my friend would never attempt suicide, and unlike Black, I've never been to prison.
Or murdered anyone. Good stuff. The only thing I've ever read by CM where no one actually dies in the course of the story.
It makes me want to read his other plays. It makes me think. It makes me remember my friend. While it WAS engaging especially the dialogue , I just didn't think it was novel or transformative.
In the end, it was a minor McCarthy playing with ideas of the twilight. The Sunset Limited is fascinating - some of McCarthy's best work, and that is saying a lot.
His use of dialogue in this book is nothing short of brilliant. He is able to take two opposing world views, examine them, and bring them to a climax that forces the reader to consider what he himself truly believe all through the conversation of two characters.
I have a suspicion that McCarthy and I would differ on some important worldview issues but I have nothing but respect for this man.
One of the be The Sunset Limited is fascinating - some of McCarthy's best work, and that is saying a lot. One of the best writers of our day without question.
Jan 01, Kirk Smith rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. I always wished it could be true and now I have found it. This is too good to describe.
Best thing in a year. It all begins with a failed suicide attempt and is then a debate between a theist and an atheist with one mans life as the forfeit or prize.
The dialogue is both deeply serious and absolutely hilarious at the same time. I always suspected that Cormac is a genius and now after discovering his sense of humor, I am sure of it.
