Topic: The Recognitions


In the News (Mon 22 Apr 19)

  
  Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. VIII
The Recognitions of Clement is a kind of philosophical and theological romance.
The writer of the work seems to have had no intention of presenting his statements as facts; but, choosing the disciples of Christ and their followers as his principal characters, he has put into their mouths the most important of his beliefs, and woven the whole together by a thread of fictitious narrative.
Some have thought that Bardesanes or his scholar borrowed from the Recognitions; but more recently the opinion has prevailed, that the passage was not originally in the Recognitions, but was inserted in the Recognitions towards the middle of the third century, or even later.

 Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. VIII
It is not strictly parallel to that in the Recognitions.
The discourses of the Apostle as given in the Recognitions are more orderly and logical than those in the Homilies, The views presented differ somewhat, in accordance with the general character of the two works.
This recapitulation is peculiar to the Recognitions; in Homily XV.

 Amazon.com: The Recognitions (Twentieth-Century Classics): Books   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The Recognitions is the extreme terminus of "The Catcher in the Rye." Both are concerned with exposing the phony, the counterfeit.
The narrative is left in fragments that bleed in all directions, blurring the line between narrative and non-narrative, the conscious and the unconscious.
This novel concerns the discoveries, both major and minor, of what is authentic in life: The Recognitions is enlightening, almost beatific, in the way in which it focuses upon the shortcomings and moral lapses of humans in pursuit of true art.

 A Reader's Guide to The Recognitions, Preface to Revised Edition
Fifteen years have passed since the first edition of this book was published (University of Nebraska Press, 1982), and during those years I have been gathering materials for what I hoped would be a second edition.
Gone are the introduction and appendices to the first edition, and the plot synopsis has been broken up and scattered to introduce each chapter.
Gone too are the cross-references to the Avon edition of The Recognitions, which in 1982 was the only edition available.

 Gaddis Drinking Club
Further, Gaddis's The Recognitions is, like the historical Recognitions discussed in the quote, a Faustian story: Recktall Brown is our devil and Wyatt is the Faustian character who is seduced and corrupted by the potential to do what he could not without the devil's help.
In The Recognitions, the "concern for immortality" is Wyatt's fear that he will amount to nothing as an artist, will have no fame, no recognition, will be forgotten.
The Recognitions is heavy on references to the modern material culture and to ancient, even obscure, Christian religion.

 The Recognitions - William Gaddis
William Gaddis' The Recognitions is often called one of the "great American novels", a large tome with a fine reputation, acclaimed, underappreciated -- and largely unread.
The Recognitions requires a reader to make an investment, not only of the exorbitant sum charged by Penguin for purchase of the book, but also of time, concentration, and patience -- all in short supply, one is led to believe in this sound-bite age.
A number of stories run through it, as various characters whose paths crisscross are, at different points, the focus of the novel.

It is not enough to explain the religious recognitions programs: you must distribute the Interfaith Quick Reference Chart and explain the importance of the leader’s role in providing this information to girls and their families.
Many of the religious recognitions programs require that they be completed under the auspices of that religious organization, and many require the signature of the local religious leader.
The recognition should be presented in a meaningful ceremony, preferably in the girl’s religious institution, and can be presented at any time of the year.

Whether in the form of a simple thank-you for a small job well done or a formal commendation for years of faithful service in a key position of an organization, such acknowledgement is a signal to the recipient that she or he is noticed and appreciated.

I suppose that it is a "recognition," or cosmic correspondence or something of the sort that Malcolm Lowry, author of that other great Twentieth Century Novel, Under The Volcano, to which Gass compares The Recognitions in the Introduction to my copy of this book, was reading The Recognitions when he died.
Lowry mentions it in one of his last letters as a "Secret Missile of the Soul." I think that's about as far as any reviewer is likely to get in trying to label or summarize this book...
I will say, for the record, that the recognition that keeps recurring to me most often comes from the final lines of the cryptic letter to the dentist Dr. Weisgall:

Randi has pursued "psychic" spoonbenders, exposed the dirty tricks of faith healers, investigated homeopathic water "with a memory," and generally been a thorn in the sides of those who try to pull the wool over the public's eyes in the name of the supernatural.
He has received numerous awards and recognitions, including a Fellowship from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in 1986.
On October 19, 1993, the PBS-TV "NOVA" program broadcast a one-hour special dealing with Randi's life work, particularly with his investigations of Uri Geller and various occult and healing claims being made by scientists in Russia.
