Eeldrop and Appleplex   By: (1888-1965)

Book cover

Eeldrop and Appleplex by Thomas S. Eliot is a unique and thought-provoking novel that delves into the complexities of human nature. The story follows the life of Eeldrop, a reclusive and introspective individual, as he navigates the complexities of his own mind and his interactions with others.

One of the most compelling aspects of this novel is Eliot's exquisite writing style. His prose is richly poetic, filled with vivid imagery and a deep understanding of the human psyche. As readers, we are drawn into Eeldrop's inner world, experiencing his insecurities, fears, and desires alongside him. The author's beautiful words transport us into a realm where introspection and introspection alone reign supreme.

Eliot masterfully explores the themes of isolation and alienation throughout the book. Eeldrop's tumultuous inner journey, his struggles to connect with others and form meaningful relationships, resonate deeply with the reader. We witness Eeldrop's battle with his own self-doubt, his constant questioning of his place in the world, and his yearning for connection. This exploration of the human condition is both captivating and relatable.

In addition to its psychological depth, Eeldrop and Appleplex also offer a unique blend of humor and wit. Eliot injects moments of lightheartedness and absurdity into the narrative, providing a welcome respite from the weighty introspection. These comedic moments serve as reminders that life, despite its complexities, can still be a joyous and surprising adventure.

Despite its brilliance, Eeldrop and Appleplex may not resonate with every reader. Some may find the novel's slow pace and lack of conventional plot structure disorienting. Eliot's focus on internal monologue and internal conflicts may also be a challenge for those seeking a more action-driven narrative. However, for those who appreciate the meditative and introspective nature of this novel, it is a literary gem.

In conclusion, Thomas S. Eliot's Eeldrop and Appleplex is a remarkable work of introspection and exploration of the human psyche. Through eloquent prose and compelling characters, Eliot brings to life the emotional complexities of the human experience, leaving readers contemplating their own place in the world. This novel is a testament to Eliot's mastery of language and his ability to delve deep into the human condition, making it a must-read for lovers of thought-provoking literature.

They had chosen the rooms and the neighborhood with great care. There are evil neighborhoods of noise and evil neighborhoods of silence, and Eeldrop and Appleplex preferred the latter, as being the more evil. It was a shady street, its windows were heavily curtained; and over it hung the cloud of a respectability which has something to conceal. Yet it had the advantage of more riotous neighborhoods near by, and Eeldrop and Appleplex commanded from their windows the entrance of a police station across the way. This alone possessed an irresistible appeal in their eyes. From time to time the silence of the street was broken; whenever a malefactor was apprehended, a wave of excitement curled into the street and broke upon the doors of the police station. Then the inhabitants of the street would linger in dressing gowns, upon their doorsteps: then alien visitors would linger in the street, in caps; long after the centre of misery had been engulphed in his cell...
