From 1930 until approximately the year 2000000000 During that period humanity evolves through what Olaf describes as 18 different species f men ur present being the First Men f the title Through those 18 iterations we see everything from giant brained superminds to genetically engineered supermen to auatic fishmen and much much The reason that the book for all its amazing inventiveness does not get 5 stars is because the narrative at times can be very very dry The detailed descriptions Our Planet: Our Home of each successive speciesf humanity and the trials and tribulations that befall them can become a bit tedious Thus there were times when I was not enjoying myself as much as I would have liked despite being in almost constant awe Kakoong, Pahlawan Pulau Awan Vol. 8 of the writer s imangination However despite that crticism this is a book that I strongly recommend to all fansf science fiction as many f the ideas and concepts found in modern science fiction found their first true expression in this amazing futrue history HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Last and First Men The ultimate vision f man s evolutionPosted at Fantasy LiteratureOlaf Stapledon s vision Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings of mankind s entire future history until the end is profound beautiful and affecting and was written way back in 1930 It is unfortunate that this work has not found a wider audience though it has had a deep influencen many f SF s luminaries including Arthur C Clarke who indicated that this book and its later successor Star Maker were the two most influential books he had ever read In my mind it is ne f the most imaginative early There s this moment in Douglas Adams The Restaurant at the End f the Universe where to torture a certain character he is put into the Total Perspective Vortex a device that gives him a perfectly accurate glimpse f the entire mind cracking enormousness f the universe and every single thing contained therein including a microscopic pinprick that reads You are here Reading Last and First Men was like being put into the Total Perspective Vortex My brain is currently uite broken Or at the very least my sense f proportion If next time I m expected at a party I show up 200000 years late it ll be entirely Olaf Stapledon s fault for making me think 200000 years is but a trifling moment gone in an eyeblink and no reason to put away the punch and slam the door in my faceIn this book Stapledon pour yourself a strong ne for this tells the future history A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) of 18 consecutive speciesf hominids ver the course f 2 billion years Just for reference 2 billion years ago the planets in ur solar system had nly finished clumping together into In the End of less cohesive ballsf rock Things get trippySo you start reading and initially you follow along sure 400 years in the future I get that Then it s 1000 years still with you But then suddenly humanity blows itself up in a worldwide nuclear disaster and we slump into the first f many Dark Ages for wait what s that 10 million yearsThis guy gets space It s huge and slow and mostly uninteresting For most f the book s time span humanity s not up to anything too exciting we re portrayed as just another part f nature blindly evolving ever adapting who every nce in a while gets lucky and makes some dazzlingly fast technological leap You know like the actual history f humanity so far In a way he s sketching his vision f what an ideal future moral history f humanity would look like with plenty f wars and aliens to keep things interesting along the way Stapledon seems to have very little faith in ur current species hell we don t even make it to the Moon until approx 300000000 years in the future because ur intellectual progress impressive as it is isn t free from the fetters The Age of Treachery ofur biological hinderings ie sexual jealousy self interest competitiveness There s no realpolitik in Stapledon s vision f the present nations keep going to war because they hate each ther This book is about humanity s uest to The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy overcome its base passions and become pure mindHaving said all that this novel can be dull Seriously dull It would be a whopping five starrer if it wasn t so egregiously boring at times Writing is not this man s forte he gets carried away with flowery metaphysical lyricism that smothers andverwhelms the course Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite of eventsStill Stapledon s vision and imagination than make up for it One canpen

biopunk It s all in there This is a must read for all serious science fiction fansINDIGNANT POST SCRIPTUM The first American editionf this book by SF Masterworks pens with a regrettable foreword by Gregory Benford in which he nonchalantly remarks I would advise the reader to simply skip the first four parts f this book and begin with The Fall When a Man Loves a Woman of the First Men I found myself shouting EXCUSE ME at the dumbstruck print What sortf foreword recommends readers skip half the book they re about to read I ll readily admit the first half is rather boring but it s a part f Stapledon s envisioned whole Further it s essential to fully appreciate the time scale as the book advances allowing ne to reminisce about those first few chapters and marvel at how far humanity has come Keep From Falling over the coursef billions Catalogue the Insanity of years It makes you realise how mightily insignificantur present is in the greater scheme f things Oh and he also scoffs at Stapledon for being shockingly wrong about the events that would take place in the decades following the book s publication I m sorry but what exactly is shocking about not being able to
Predict Future Are the Are holding him up to the standards f a prophet Seriously this foreword is nothing but a puddle Shrek of runny arse gravy It s really hard to describe this novel in a way that can do it justice because any cursory explanation such as plotless and characterless has some rather negative connotations Indeed it s kinda impossible to have those here except in brief glances relyingn bird s eye views before necessarily jumping n to the next BIG IDEA and Super Imaginative settingFor what we have here way back in 1930 is novel f Future History influencing every big SF author Look Alikes Jr. of the day even influencing Winston Churchill HG Wells Arthur C Clarke and countless SF writers ever sinceWhy Let me do this uick Eighteen iterationsf mankind ver a billion years from the total death f Architecture for the Shroud: Relic and Ritual in Turin our mankind the evolutionary re emergencef the next the differences ddities rediscoveries after soooo much time the new dreams aspirations religions the different values before the next mankind

of something miraculous having ccurred here I repeatedly double checked if this 1930 wasn t in reference to something miraculous having ccurred here I repeatedly double checked if this 1930 wasn t in reference to else a symptom Bleuets of the lackf belief that characterized my eyes at the time Home of reading Onef the things I liked aside from the bedazzling scope Matilda of the author s imagination is the way the fourth wall was broken through the idea that the author himself was but a vesself communication between a very distant future human life form and the reader The account Siddhartha of all the iterationsf mankind s evolution and the richness in detail and nuance make it read like a convincing historical account convincing enough to even entertain the idea proposed by the author that the future speaks to us through these pagesThis leads me to react Mde on two criticisms I have read here repeatedly The first is that the near future predictions were wrong While I guess this is true when it comes to certain details protagonists scientific discoveries and son I think no justice is done to this book by considering it a historical account Danb of the future a creative exercise in future forecasting It s than that It s than anything I know and categorizing it is a mistake Even science fiction is too narrow a field to contain all that is within this book In any case running your finger along its lines and double checking it with reality is futile and senseless and completely besides the point In fact even in his supposedly wrong predictionsf the near future Stapledon touched Hrtiques on some very true traitsf human nature In my version Solitude of the book the foreword by Gregory Benford actually recommends not reading the first chapters becausef their factual errors Please do not follow this man s advice Don t skip anything in this book Beloved or at least not anything Stapledon has writtenA second criticism I read isn the way the story is presented There is a lack Odysse of a constant character to relate to and the birdseye viewr Flying Man s view prevents any bonding between reader and story I can t but disagree First Resentment Against Achievement of all the civilisations are presented in a way that is detailed and passionate enough as to allow the reader to feel right at home among them whether they d ben Earth Venus Nietzsche or Neptune Sometimes though rarely Stapledon also zooms inn individuals providing the reader with yet another way Confiteor of engaging with the millionsf characters that are within this book And ultimately I myself couldn t help but feel like a character within it How s that for immersion This story tells the story Hitler of humanity so the leap is not that big to makeThis book is deeply philosophical And here we come to the main reason why I don t just like this book but love it It asks life s biggest uestions without falling into the trapf falling Patria onne s knees and shout Snobs out an exasperated WHY Rather it s written by someone with a tender yet firm a uestioning yet reassuring voice It s always very collected dispassionate when exploring possibilities when describing the searchf so many people the defeats they endure their disappointments and their small victories It s an Nouvelles ode to humanity without forgetting the baseness and evil that sometimes characterizes us And despite the theme it doesn t present humankind as the centerf the universe though it does shortly consider the possibility that it is its most beautiful flower This consideration is blissfully left Iliade open without a conclusion It s ande to light despite all the darkness that surrounds it It s an Dublinesca ode to the temporary in an eternal setting It s ande to the cosmos despite not knowing what the hell it is It s telling me that life is ultimately beautiful despite its insignificance in the vast expanse Elsa of time space and possibilities That the universe is a wonderful riddle regardlessf whether we can solve it Oblomov or not That being able to recognize the mystery that surrounds and pervades us is a gift in itself a spark that can take humanity a far way I highly recommend this book to everyone I won t judge you if you don t like it I can tffer the guarantee that you will but I "Can Only Say I "only say I very glad I can count myself among those who really do I won t claim this book is an easy read There were days where I didn t feel I had the mental capacity to fully get what was written and move forward But it s a fulfilling read Be patient and give yourself the time to find the right moment to read it I m surprised this book isn t a worldwide timeless success given its scope There s something in there for everyone and it s surprising to me that it s not part Orphe of mass culture but this surprise makes me all the grateful that I got the chance to discover it I ll see what I can do in makingther people get acuainted with it as well

O Som do Rugido da Onça
Em 1817, Spix e Martius desembarcaram no Brasil com a missão de registrar suas impressões sobre o país. Três anos e 10 mil quilômetros depois, os exploradores voltaram a Munique trazendo consigo não apenas um extenso relato da viagem, mas também um menino e uma menina indígenas, que morreriam pouco tempo depois de chegar em solo europeu.
Em seu quinto romance, Micheliny Verunschk constrói uma poderosa narrativa que deixa de lado a historiografia hegemônica para dar protagonismo às crianças – batizadas aqui de Iñe e e Juri – arrancadas de sua terra natal. Entrelaçando a trama do século XIX ao Brasil contemporâneo, somos apresentados também a Josefa, jovem que reconhece as lacunas de seu passado ao ver a imagem de Iñe e em uma exposição.
Com uma prosa embebida de lirismo, este é um livro sem paralelos na literatura brasileira ao tratar de temas como memória, colonialismo e pertencimento.
Um romance que expande as fronteiras da arte literária ao trazer memória, argumentos antropológicos e o melhor que a ficção pode nos oferecer. – Itamar Vieira Junior
