Reason for Reading In the book A Reliable Wife by Roderick Goodwin the author mentions in a note that this book gave him the idea for the atmosphere to set his own book in His characters read from the newspaper regularly and his description of this book made want to read it So I put an ILL reuest in for it right awayComments This is a very unusual book It is a collection of both photographs and newspaper clippings from the period of 1895 to 1900 from a newspaper called the Badger State Banner which covered local Jackson County news as well as having access to state wide news During this period the author contends that a certain presence of death and tragedy loomed over the agricultural towns of the American Midwest What became a mundane part of their everyday lives as reported in the newspapers now to us looking back seems to be a macabre era of historyThe newspaper articles which run from one liners to several paragraphs report on suicides diphtheria deaths baby deaths insane declarations window smashers arsonists found dead bodies deaths funerals charges of obscene letters sent through the mail and much plus repeated instances of the same over and over with each one different and many the same Suicides are rampant men shooting themselves in the head hanging themselves in the barn and one guy blew his head off with dynamite Women poisoned themselves with the plenty of rodent killers found on the farm drowned themselves in barrels and rivers or set themselves on fire one lady in a bath of kerosene The asylum must have been filled to the rafters with all the reports of committed people How many times I read of women with 8 to 13 children being committed as insane with symptoms of despondency and men who lost their jobs and wouldn t do anything were declared insane Of course then there were also the usual religious insanity the tobacco insanity the thinks the neighbours are after him insanity too All this and the other topics make for absolutely fascinating reading of a time when life must have been a hard road to travelThen along with the text between each year are sections of photographs which were taken by a local studio photographer Charley Van Schaick It was the finding of the glass negative slides that prompted the compilation of this book None of the photos are snapshots they are all photos taken because someone wanted them taken They are very striking and range from the morbid dead babies in coffins and old women who are scary to look at to studio shots of people but whose eyes are strangely lifeless and there are even some photos of picnics and local businesses The way they have been arranged though is not just a seuence of photos but is an artistic presentation I almost felt as if I were watching a silent movie at timesThe combination of the text and the photos together presents an unusual artistic viewing of social history in a manner not likely to be seen again I think this is only something to come about from the mindset of the seventies Both the preface and the authors ending thesis this was originally presented as his thesis at Rutgers suffer from a lot of seventies psycho babble but the history presented is unblemished and fascinating and macabre This is the type of book that would be a pleasure to own and dip into or just to come back to over and over for the pictures alone While not for everyone I highly recommended it for those who like me enjoy this sort of thing

Read & download Ö Wisconsin Death Trip 100 Review ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ô Michael Lesy Michael Lesy Ô 0 Characters First published in 1973 this remarkable book about life in a small turn of the centu. The time traveller stepped cautiously out of his machine and looked around the wide field The day was bright the country fecund He permitted himself a smile An elderly man was walking purposefully ahead of him Good day to you called the time traveller Not now not now came the reply I have just this moment taken the life of my wife her sister and three of her cousins who were visiting I am in a hurry now to take my own I intend to swing shortly from yonder elm The time traveller reeled back in alarm What was this He cast his eyes about and noticed for the first time various dark forms dangling from the larger branches of the nearby trees But then his eyes were taken up by an altogether gayer sight it was a cheerful bonfire in the mid distance As he approached he noticed various persons frantically throwing water from buckets onto the flames and he realised it was a domestic house ablaze Come help us please said one approaching Ralph Chase and his intire family are still within a local boy known as an incendiary has done this for sure and he handed the time traveller a bucket but suddenly sagged to the ground and began convulsing A woman ran up and dragged the time traveller away from the moribund Keep clear keep clear he has the typhoid for sure The time traveller turned to her and in terrified tones demanded of her What God Forsaken place is this Why sir she said this is Black Ferry Wisconsin 1896 This book is an affront to good tastea stone thrown into a ponda diatribean indictment of human beings in generala patchwork uilt of blood and deathan exercise in a particularly unpleasant form of voyeurisman original and extraordinary history essay a ripe example of the hipster s fascination for the outre for its own sake a vision of HellWhat you get is a snippets from a couple of local newspapers from this small area of Wisconsin between 1885 and 1900 All the snippets are about suicide murder insanity and disease Check the name of this book that s right It s not called A Pleasant day Out in Wisconsin b interpolated uotations from a couple of novelsc snippets from case studies of inmates at the Mendoza Asylum for the Insaned some bizarre photos by a local Wisconsin photographer all posed many featuring mannish women and men with frankly absurd tastes in facial hair eg you shave all your face EXCEPT under your chin and your throat so where your chin ends there s a big hair explosion hmm attractive Note to self must try this Oh yes several photos of babies in coffinse pompous essays by the authorcompiler and his professor pal Warren Susman if my old professor had written a piece this patronising for my first book I d have photoshopped his face onto some SM porn and posted it on the university bulletin board The final essay by Michael Lesy might actually be pretty good but you know what By the time I got to it I d had enoughRandom example 1 A wild man is terrorising the people north of Grantsburg He appears to be 35 years of age has long black whiskers is barefooted has scarcely any clothes on him and he carries a hatchet He appeared at several farm houses and asked for something to eat He eats ravenously and when asked where he came from points to the east he secretes himself in the woods during the day and has the most bloodcurdling yells that have ever been heard in the neighbourhood Random example 2 Henry Ehlers a Milwaukee butcher died from nosebleed His nose had been bleeding for 9 days He was 37 years of age and had been a great meat eater Random example 3 The family of Henry Miller of Cedarburg is sorely afflicted A 6 month old child died of diphtheria a week ago and now a 7 year old boy is dead A few weeks previous 2 children had died all of the same disease One child survives out of a family of 5 children and that too is down with the disease There s a great American traditional song called Railroad Boy which in retrospect encapsulates the casual brutality of many of these jarring anecdotes of damage I would have given the link for the great performance by Dylan and Joan Baez taken from Renaldo Clara but Youtube deleted that so here s just the words She went upstairs to make her bedAnd not one word to her mother saidHer mother she went upstairs tooSaying Daughter oh daughter what s troublin youOh mother oh mother I cannot tellThat railroad boy that I love so wellHe courted me my life awayAnd now at home will no longer stayThere is a place in yonder townWhere my love goes and he sits him downAnd he takes that strange girl on his kneeAnd he tells to her what he won t tell meHer father he came home from workSayin Where is my daughter she seems so hurtHe went upstairs to give her hopeAn he found her hangin by a ropeHe took his knife and he cut her downAnd on her bosom these words he foundGo dig my grave both wide and deepPut a marble stone at my head and feet And on my breast put a snow white doveTo warn the world that I died of loveAlthough in Wisconsin in the 1890s they were dying of a whole lot things than mere love
