  • Basically this is the conclusion to George Borrow s book Lavengro, which I read before a mini vacation I wanted to read this one right after that little trip in order to have details from the other book still fresh in my mind Here is the explanation for the sudden ending of Lavengro and the existence of this book Lavengro and The Romany Rye are one book, though the former was published in 1851 and the latter not until 1857 After a slumber of six years the dingle re awakes to life, Lavengro s ham [...]


  • I don t see how anyone could read this book on it s own without having first read Lavengro and make much sense of it This is not a sequel, it s the 2nd half of Lavengro , and really should be read as such I read Lavengro 8 months ago, and it was too long in between The problem is that random characters reappear, or new characters whose lives were changed by an encounter with a former character I realize this is all going to sound like gibberish , this pattern was set in the first book, and cross [...]


  • This Borrow novel begins suddenly and ends suddenly Since I ve never read Lavengro, the first autobiographical account of the author s experience with the English Romani, I found myself trying to play catch up they really should be read one after the other However, the journey is interesting, as he introduces characters with an empathy for the nomadic gypsy.George Borrow led quite a life, one of travel and language Along with publishing a dictionary of Anglo Romany, he also did a Manchu translat [...]


  • You certainly need to have read Lavengro before this the snag is, that Lavengro is extremely heavy going, whereas this is conversational, he names characters rather , and it is generally less obscure I almost got interested in a woman he meets, Isopel Berners but then she leaves abruptly and that s that The story itself finishes abruptly oh, I think I ll go to India about 2 3 of the way through and the rest of the book is a set of essays fulminating against various aspects of life, notably Cath [...]


  • A lot this this would be hard to follow without reading Lavengro first to which it is a sequel Tales of characters met on the roads of England in mid 19th century, at horse fairs, encampments and inns Quite a lot of railing against characters of stagecoach drivers and catholic priests Like Lavengro it ends rather suddenly.
