READ ó FUTBOLENTRELINEAS.CO Ç Gore Vidal Gore Vidal Ç 1 READ READ Õ Burr By Gore Vidal Gore Vidal's Narratives of Empire series spans the history of the United States from the Revolution to the post World War II years With their broad canvas and large cast of fictional and historical characters the novels in this series present a panorama of the American political and imperial experience as interpreted by one of its most worldly k In the half light of the cemetery Burr did resemble the devil assuming that the devil is no than five foot six an inch shorter than I slender with tiny feet hooves high forehead in the fading light I imagine vestigial horns bald in front with hair piled high on his head powdered absently in the old style and held in place with a shell comb Behind him is a monument to the man he murdered Aaron BurrAaron Burr is without a doubt one of the most fascinating figures in American history He cuts his own swath leaving a wake behind him that rocks the tender foundations of this newly minted country He is honorable and dishonorable in eual measure He is a highly skilled lawyer he will need those skills to defend himself and an accomplished politician Today he is not as well known as Benedict Arnold but in a series of events that are lurid than the plot of a dime novel he nearly supersedes Arnold as the most loathed man in America It is hard to believe that this controversial figure was nearly the third President of the United States In 1800 one of those pivotal years in politics Burr makes a deal with Thomas Jefferson to allow him to be president if he insures that Burr will be made vice president Burr can bring the key New York votes to Jefferson Interestingly enough in the first ballot they tie 73 73 With the way we venerate Jefferson with a few reservations about his association with Sally Hemings it is interesting to think about how close he comes to NOT being the third President of the United States Really only because Burr upheld his promise one of those times when Burr was maybe too honorable did Jefferson achieve his ambition though he insists in true Cincinnatus style that he never desired the Presidency The Aaron Burr of this story is really a surrogate for the wicked wit of Gore Vidal I d like to think that Burr was exactly how Vidal portrayed the enigma of charm and enticing irreverent behavior His observations on the founding fathers is frankly hilarious He describes George Washington s womanly hips and other aspects of his character that are even less flattering What did he think of Jefferson Meanwhile I presided over the Senate I also dined uite freuently with the President who continued to delight and fascinate me with his conversation not to mention his wonderful malice which was positively Shakespearean in its variety Or how about a description of an older Jefferson after two terms in the presidency The smile was a swift baring of yellow teeth the lips were gray tending to blue where most men are pink or red I suppose it was the winter season that made him look like the last ashes of a once fierce fire soft fine white no trace remaining of the foxy red haired man he had been save for the tarnished bronze of freckles Ahh yes Mr Vidal you can most definitely write This story is told through the eyes of Charles Schuyler not of the prominent New York Dutch family unfortunately a young writer who has been granted access to Burr because Burr has taken a shine to him We learn in the later chapters exactly why Burr was so forthcoming with the young lad Charles is there to listen to the Burr stories write them down and organize them into some semblance of a biography Burr cautions the reader or is that Vidal My side of the story is not necessarily the accurate one But you flatter me And I like that Burr is in his 70s and has weathered than his share of scandals He is interested in not being forgotten than he is in being venerated Bad press will work as well or better than good press Even on the social front he is rather debonair about potential impropriety Whenever a woman does me the honour of saying that I am father to her child I gracefully acknowledge the compliment and disguise any suspicion that I might have to the contrary A true gentleman and yet somehow still a cad I love this badass statue of Aaron Burr at the Museum of American FinanceVidal explores his growing conflict with Alexander Hamilton which escalates under the spidery web of insinuations that Jefferson glibly whispers in the ears of those around him Burr is defined by this brief moment in time involving two pistol shots leaving one mortally wounded and immortalized and the other disreputed and in many measures driven to desperate acts when he finds himself on the run out West Those actions lead to the term treason being associated with him but really it is about making him pay for the death of Hamilton Vidal also explores the spurious comments that were made about President Martin Van Buren s parentage Politics have certainly reached a new low with our most recent election but have no delusions there was mud slinging eye gouging malicious slander ankle biting and generally unseemly behavior from the very beginning of our country Gore Vidal looking very dapper in 1972 Vidal takes us behind the scenes and shows us a tarnished view of the Founding Fathers At times this book is irreverent but under the guise of Burr s memories one does wonder if this isn t closer to the truth than the idealized version of history we are spoon fed with the American flag draped over our shoulders and the Statue of Liberty sitting rather provocatively in our laps I chuckled I giggled I gasped The book is serious though I don t want to leave people with the impression that it is farcical or a spoof Vidal does his research He considered adding the long list of sources that he read and consulted to write this book for he wanted to stay out of the range of the rabid politicos who would not necessarily appreciate his interpretations of history He elected to let them say what they will in true Aaron Burr fashion Highly Recommended to those that want to experience
