Jean Brodie is in her prime. At least that is what she says. She regularly informs her girls, her special set of students whom she is developing into the créme de la créme, that when one is in one’s prime, as she is, all manner of art and beauty is open to one. Mostly, however, her girls assume she is talking about sex. Maybe not when they were 10, when she first took them under her wing, but increasingly through the years in which they stay in close contact even after the two years she taught them directly. Her girls range from the bright to the dull, from the beautiful to the plain, but they all share an absolute devotion to Miss Brodie. Any act of betrayal on their part is almost inconceivable. And yet…

The writing here is marvellously subtle and playful as the narrator jumps between characters and over time-spans to reveal, early on, outcomes for the various girls. It is so light and knowing that you will be astounded at Spark’s reinvention of the school novel. If it is your first direct encounter with her writing, as it has been for me, you will immediately want to commit yourself to reading everything that Spark has written. But you’ll probably find yourself returning to Jean Brodie in her prime simply to admire the craft and sparkle of Muriel Spark’s prose.

Certainly recommended. ( )

about the author:1918-2006. Scottish novelist born in Edinburgh.

Having looked forward to reading Muriel Spark for a while, I was a bit uncomfortable a ways into this. Was this ok? Was I missing something? What perspective should I have here?

The novel is about an unorthodox school teacher and a handful of her devoted followers, the Brodie girls, who remain her girls even as they go on to higher levels of education. But Miss Brodie is a complicated uncomfortable creation. Progressive, inspiring and yet her self-confidence has narcissistic aspect, and she has some other some questionable elements. This reader's discomfort needed a little patience, along with a continual thinking and rethinking, trying to understand what Spark is doing. Spark works her way through the different perspectives, and her portrait begins to come through, first only between the lines. There are a lot of floating elements in this short novel, including some autobiographical ones, and some that can only exist in this window of time, and Spark constructs them in her own way, creating a certain balance of impact. It's really rather brilliant. And the reader may never be fully comfortable. I really enjoyed this and look forward to reading more of her novels.

In my opinion a rare example of a book that is not as good as the film based upon it. ( )
  LuxVestra | Nov 20, 2021 |
I read this because it was a "classic", although I'm unsure why. This was a story of an "unconventional" teacher of impressible girls ages 10-14ish at a junior school in Scotland. To be honest, I did not like the character of Miss Brodie. If found her to be cruel and crude. She blatantly and unabashedly picked favorites and ridiculed others. As to the writing, the narrative was exceedingly choppy switching from reminiscences to daydreams to current dialogue to future scenes at lightning speed. So not a fan of the story or the writing. Good thing it was not a long book or I would have abandoned it. 144 pages ( )

Did I like any of the characters in this book? I don't think so. But I did like the book very much. It's subversive, it's ambiguous, and it's clever. ( )

She writes with cool exactness, a firm voice (each tale has its own) and compassionate wit. In her new novel (originally published last fall, in shorter form, in The New Yorker), she deals with a violent woman whose romantic spirit is impatient with all but the Absolute.

The boys, as they talked to the girls from Marcia Blaine School, stood on the far side of their bicycles holding the handlebars, which established a protective fence of bicycle between the sexes, and the impression that at any moment, the boys were likely to be away.
