Sample text

His female characters are all flat. This absence of romantic love, then, relates to his deliberate or unconscious decision (it is unclear which) not to create female characters that are wholly realized. The absence of women in his stories limits McCarthy from joining the company of canonical writers such as Shakespeare and Faulkner. McCarthy’s male characters, while they are complex, are not offset by any fully imagined female ones, and in this way, he not only departs from an important convention of modern fiction, but also limits the imaginative scope of his narratives.

Then, he is blindsided by a man named ‘‘Buster,’’ who hits Ballard in the 39 40 READING CORMAC MCCARTHY head with an ax with such force that blood streams out of both Ballard’s ears. The narrative techniques McCarthy uses to tell the story vary somewhat from the omniscient third-person narrator of his earlier works. The opening auction scene is told by a nameless insider who knows Ballard and the other characters who populate the story. The narrator speaks in the local dialect and employs first-person storytelling devices like narrative asides.

The voice is articulate and detached and uses clear, concise, descriptive language. The picture of Ballard that emerges from the narrative as a whole is of a man who both rejects and has been rejected by contemporary society. As a youth, he was disliked by his peers for his unprovoked violence and aggression. As an adult, ‘‘he’d grown lean and bitter. Some said mad. A malign star kept him’’ (Child of God, 41). He scrapes a meager existence off the land. He peddles stolen property for petty cash.
