Overview of Novel
With the issuing of her very first book, “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”, Carson McCullers, all the 23, became a mythical consciousness. With a deep sense of ethical seclusion and its empathetic glances into the inner lives of characters, the novel is believed author’s supreme work, a lasting masterwork first published in 1940 by Houghton Mifflin. At its middle is the deaf-mute John Singer, who turns out to be the friend of several kinds of oddities in ‘Georgia mill town’ in the 1930s.
Everyone wants to get out of the life of the small town. When a mute companion of Singer goes crazy, Singer shifts into the Mick Kelly house, where Kelly, the heroine of the novel, seeks comfort in her music. Brilliantly in harmony with the spiritual seclusion which inspires the human state, and through a skillful perception for cultural strains in South, author twirls a lingering, haunted fable which gives expression to the forgotten, rejected, and the maltreated – and by Mick Kelly gives power of speech to the silent, extremely private quest for beauty.
