Description

Product Description

Hannah Coulter is Wendell Berry’s seventh novel and his first to employ the voice of a woman character in its telling. Hannah, the now–elderly narrator, recounts the love she has for the land and for her community. She remembers each of her two husbands, and all places and community connections threatened by twentieth–century technologies. At risk is the whole culture of family farming, hope redeemed when her wayward and once lost grandson, Virgil, returns to his rural home place to work the farm.

About the Author

Wendell Berry is the author of fifty books of poetry, fiction, and essays. He was recently awarded the Cleanth Brooks Medal for Lifetime Achievement by the Fellowship of Southern Writers and the Louis Bromfield Society Award. For over forty years he has lived and farmed with his wife, Tanya, in Kentucky.

Any book I’ve ever read of Wendell Berry I have enjoyed immensely. Like an old worn house coat, or a soft well-known easy chair that one looks forward to slipping into after a hard day, are Mr. Berry’s novels about Port William. Being an old Kentucky farm girl myself, I remember a little of what it was like to feel a sense of membership in a small town, although my time was well past Hannah and Nathan Coulter’s. I will say that reading these books helps me to rethink, refocus, live day to day.

There is wisdom to be gained in reading this book, and any of the other Port William books. The characters are well defined, easy to like. I highly recommend these books to any and all.

It is hard for me to put into words how this book changed me, stretched me, comforted me. In stepping into Hannah’s world, you forget for a time that you are reading someone else’s memoir and not your own. Wendell Berry has the uncanny ability to express the emotions of a woman to a point that even I thought “Yes! That’s exactly how I felt and I could never put it into words!” I felt seen, known. Traveling through Hannah’s world as she grew from a child to an old woman, and steeping in every phase of her life...I felt like I knew her. Isn’t that every author’s goal? To know the character in such a way that I can picture her in my minds eye. This book has become one of my favorites of all time, a cherished book on my shelf to be read again and again.

This has become my all time favorite book! There''s a lot of life lessons in it. Hannah is a simple, strong, old timey lady; someone who I think we all should be more like. She values the simple things in life and values her relationship with the people in her community. I could write a book about why this book is so amazing. Its hard to believe that this was written by a man because it truly captures the way a woman thinks and feels. I will purchasing more of Mr. Berry books!

I read Jayber Crow a few years ago and while I thought the writing was lovely, I didn’t love the book. It was so long. Just so forever long, and because Berry’s novels are not plot-driven (but rather literary fiction), even a short novel in this style can feel long. Well, Hannah Coulter has long been lauded as his best novel by people in my circle of readers, so I finally gave it a shot. And guess what? I loved it. It definitely lives up to the hype. It was interesting to read Berry’s writing in a first-person female voice. I read the first 75 pages in one night. There are a few paragraphs on grief and love and marriage that I had to pause and reread several times because they were just so beautiful and so, so perfectly worded to describe what he was communicating. I kept thinking, “Well, yes, that is the perfect way to say that.” Again, this is not a plot-driven book and definitely a work of literary fiction, but it’s still worth your time. It’s a life summary, simply put. Hannah Coulter reflects on her entire life: childhood, marriage, widowhood, remarriage, parenting, farming, and widowhood again. It’s beautiful and simple and true.

Hannah Coulter is a beautifully written novel steeped in nostalgia for small, communal, family-owned farm life. Berry''s ability to portray the beauty of the land as well as the characters of the individuals who work on it and are part of it reflects his respect for both the characters and the land.
If one reads "Hannah Coulter" simply for the language, which at times, is lyrical, it would be a pleasurable endeavor, but it is his ability to portray Hannah, the eponymous woman, as a young uncertain girl, an impassioned newlywed, a middle-aged mother, and a twice widowed 80-year old grandmother looking back on her life, reflecting on the losses, while remaining grateful and caring that makes this novel both endearing and enduring. Hannah is a woman you''ll not soon forget, nor will you want to. Berry''s social commentary, however, is not subtle, as he bemoans the loss of family life, the destruction of the environment, and the psychological and cultural effects of war.

I enjoyed great chunks of this book though occasionally felt it went around in circles a little. The writing is deceptively simple, and profound. The sense of people and place is strong. It''s barely a novel, much more a fictional memoir. Nevertheless it moves the reader considerably, and is able to present a great breadth of time within its relatively few pages.
At times you crave a bit more dialogue (because when the dialogue does come it''s superb) and sometimes a little more action of some sort (any sort) wouldn''t have gone amiss. But the warmth of relationships, the detail of character and the wonderful feeling for what humanity is are all worth patiently reading through.
I could have done without the details of Nathan''s probable experience of the war; it comes very late in the book (even though we''ve been forewarned of it from the beginning), and seems to jar against the book''s poise. It doesn''t contribute greatly to the story, except I suppose to show that this man had such integrity he was able to hold all this inside him and not poison others with it.

The narrator through the voice of Hannah Coulter ends the first chapter of this novel with the simple line “This is my story, my giving of thanks.” Do not, however, be lulled into thinking you are going to read a book consisting of platitudes on gratitude. Hannah reflects from old age on a full life, but what most would consider a common, ordinary life. She grieves over those she lost whether to sickness or the War. She keeps moving forward because what else is she to do?

Wendell Berry, the author of Hannah Coulter is an agrarian, a novelist, a poet, and an essayist. He brings his characters to life with carefully chosen words that reflect their deepest thoughts about difficult subjects as well as their humanity. This is a book that you may want to reread, that may make you tear up, and that will certainly be the cause of reflection as you identify with certain characters or events.

Perhaps because I usually prefer linear storytelling and Hannah Coulter strays from that paradigm in its first and last chapters, it will not be one of my favorite books. I do recommend it as a book of depth with passages that are worthy of sharing orally for the way the words delight or for the descriptions meant to be savored for the images they evoke. Hannah Coulter opens the door to her heart, her life, and her community to the reader in an honest and touching manner.

I would like to extend my thanks to NetGalley and to Counterpoint for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

there was an expression of understanding
in the lilt and timbre
the settling of a calm turn of phrase
a voice that brought
serenity into an otherwise
bleak atmosphere
and so- I listened

I believe I heard correctly this voice
the internal emotional fiber
of each personality seemed to come through
flavors of mashed potatoes and gravy
along with the raw tenderness of silent despair

however- within the loss of vibrancy
I heard a voice that was within smokey shadows
mixed with a residue of sadness- of loss-
the sort that saturates a landscape
filled with pools of a rain drenched landscape
gullies becoming muddy and streaming wherever
they must-
One waits in hope for the sun
longing for the green of spring
Yet choosing to stand in the rain-
gets soaked without caring with tears
falling unchecked-
simply because - who would even know?

I heard the voice
I was drawn into this scene that pleaded with me
to enter into this place
to walk around these rooms
sit at the table
and hear their banter
feel the heaviness that saturates
an atmosphere because of another voice
an unsuspecting voice
bringing grief to those who belong

and just when I begin to understand
the heart of this people
and the desire that seems so prominent
so expectant- and yet so accepting to
the reality of loss-
I find myself grieving this voice
this singular voice
who has become my own- of sorts-
and so she does what she must
she takes a step forward
and bids me to do the same.

Somehow, everything I am reading at the moment relates to our relationship to place. This novel in the voice of an elderly woman, twice married, mother of three, looking back over a long life in a small Kentucky community, has a small frame of reference yet encompasses the big questions about how to live a life - and to let go of attachments - to parents, children, lost loved-ones, hopes, dreams and especially, the past. The protagonist sometimes seems like a ventriloquist for Wendell Berry in her wise observations but stays on the right side of sentimentality. The war, although off-stage - is another theme that underlies the novel - what actually happened and how it reverberates through the lives of those at a distance.

This was a wonderful novel, probably the best book I''ve read in a long time. It''s a slow, sweet, sad and happy story of an old woman''s life. She talks about what is important and what she learned over the years in regular family life. I felt that even though the book is set a while ago. It''s got wisdom for now. That life isn''t always perfect. That sometimes it isn''t perfect because of the choices we made. It''s a book full of wisdom and learning, and I want to read all of Wendell Berry''s books now.
