The Armies Of The Night Pdf
The Armies of the Night is a nonfiction novel written by Norman Mailer and published by New American Library in 1968. It won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-fiction and the National Book Award in category Arts and Letters. The book’s full title is The Armies of the Night: History as a Novel/The Novel as History. Mailer essentially created his own genre; as the subtitle suggests, the narrative is split into historicized and novelized accounts of the October 1967 March on the Pentagon. Mailer’s unique rendition of the non-fiction novel was one of only a few at the time and received the most critical attention. In Cold Blood (1965) by Truman Capote and Hell’s Angels (1966) by Hunter S. Thompson had already been published, and three months later Tom Wolfe would contribute The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (1968).
The Armies Of The Night Summary
Written in the third person with Norman Mailer as the protagonist, this section is purported to be a first-hand account of Mailer’s activities during the March. After beginning with an excerpt from Time, the novel begins with Norman Mailer at home answering a call from Mitch Goodman, a friend from college, asking him to join the March on the Pentagon and specifically join a demonstration ” at the Department of Justice to honor students who are turning in their draft cards”. Convinced, Mailer promises to join him, but “I can’t pretend I’m happy about it”. In Washington, Mailer begins to meet up with the other literary minds of the movement, including Robert Lowell and Dwight Macdonald, and it is decided that Mailer would be the MC for an event at the Ambassador Theater. It is this event which Mailer drinks too much, embarrasses himself and has Time write that “mumbling and spewing obscenities as he staggered about the stage—which he had commandeered by threatening to beat up the previous M.C.—Mailer described in detail his search for a usable privy on the premises”.
