The first sign that I should not have read this book was the discrepancy in hours between the abridged and unabridged versions on audible Unabridged 21 hours Abridged 3 hours I bought it anyway and soon discovered why There s about 15% story and 85% fluff in Ben Hur It is hands down the best argument for editing I have ever read For example there was a section in the beginning where two men embraced That s all we need to know right No no Of course not We have to hear that they threw their right arm around each other keeping the left to the side as was custom at that time They then touched chins to each other s shoulder withdrew and did the same thing on the other side all the while smiling and wishing each other wellThat might not seem so bad But when every facet of every scene is so unrelentingly explored it gets old real uickThe book proceeds for the next four hours to retell the birth of Jesus in painstaking detail Want to know what kind of trimming lined each of the wise men s shawls Then READ THIS BOOKThe moment that really made me want to stop reading was when the author admitted how exhaustive his story was When finally introduced to Ben Hur in hour five he decided to take a moment to describe the rise and fall of Herod and the ensuing political uprisings With all of this detail behind he said The reader shall be spared a full chapter on Jewish politics Spared Are you kidding You realize how boring your book is don t youUg I ll keep going but I m not happy about itNovember 23rd Just can t do it 月下夢幻譚神無夜話 4 left to the side as was custom at that time They then touched chins to each other s shoulder withdrew and did the same thing on the other side all the while smiling and wishing each other wellThat might not seem so bad But when every facet of every scene is so unrelentingly explored it gets old real uickThe book proceeds for the next four hours to retell the birth of Jesus in painstaking detail Want to know what kind of trimming How to Fly with Broken Wings lined each of the wise men s shawls Then READ THIS BOOKThe moment that really made me want to stop reading was when the author admitted how exhaustive his story was When finally introduced to Ben Hur in hour five he decided to take a moment to describe the rise and fall of Herod and the ensuing political uprisings With all of this detail behind he said The reader shall be spared a full chapter on Jewish politics Spared Are you kidding You realize how boring your book is don t youUg I Swimming to the Moon ll keep going but I m not happy about itNovember 23rd Just can t do it

Historical fiction as a genre was first developed by the writers of the Romantic school which arose around the end of the 18th century the Romantics were drawn by the exoticism of historical settings and the drama of epochal events and even of daily life in a time was life was wilder and dangerous Lew Wallace s masterwork stands suarely in this tradition but takes it in a new direction For the first couple of Romantic generations history largely meant European history Biblical history outside of the text of the Bible itself simply wasn t that well known archaeology was in its infancy and neither writers or readers could really imagine the Biblical world as it actually wasBy 1880 however scholarship had pulled back the curtain of obscurity enough to bring to light the basic contours of that ancient and Near Eastern world and a full fledged epic novel of the time of Christ had become possible It was Lew Wallace s destiny to write it A lawyer politician with a military background in both the Mexican and Civil Wars he was already a successful historical novelist At the time he embarked on writing Ben Hur by his own statement he had no particular religious beliefs but during the seven years of research he put in for the writing of the novel his study of the New Testament and its historical background led him to become a Christian believer Although title character Judah Ben Hur is the novel s protagonist this is also very much as the subtitle says a tale of the Christ who will be the decisive influence in the protagonist s life and the author s treatment of Christ and his ministry is thoroughly reverentThe novel isn t without its flaws Having a background in Biblical scholarship I m prone to notice factual errors in the historical cultural details and despite Wallace s research there are several of them here though in the interests of time I ll refrain from cataloging them Besides his typical 19th century diction which doesn t bother me personally though it does some modern readers his pacing can be slow especially in the opening chapters and a few passages of dialogue basically take the form of long sermon like discourses or expositions that can be on the dry side His prose style is often description heavy and there sometimes isn t a corresponding gain in the clarity with which readers can visualize the scenes for instance despite the laborious attempt to describe the appointments of the ampitheater at Antioch I can t say I really have a clear mental picture of it though that may be my fault and not his He inserts miraculous Divine activity into some contexts where the New Testament writers don t and in common with most 19th century Christians he belabors a false dichotomy between Christ as a savior and spiritual king vs his role as future king of the physical world a dichotomy which IMO makes nonsense of both Old and New Testament eschatology though Wallace is right in recognizing that Christ s mission in his first coming was vastly profound and less militant than the role the Zealots wanted to cast him inHowever the pluses here strongly outweigh the minuses This is a substantial novel dealing with serious spiritual moral and psychological issues and embodying them in the experiences and decisions of very well drawn lifelike characters To be sure there is the full panoply of a Romantic school novel of excitement and adventure with plenty of appeal to strong emotions miscarriage of justice galley slavery piracy shipwreck a high stakes chariot race with the possibility of death or injury for the contestants a romantic triangle revenge betrayal the horrors of leprosy and above all the intense real life drama of the crucifixion of Christ here depicted with as much horrific force as prose can give it without the visual element All of this of course is something the Realist critical establishment of Wallace s day and ours sees as literary mortal sin and deprecates accordingly and which I do not But it s coupled with a significant message that s as profound as that of any other classic novel that s stood the test of time That combination made this the best selling novel of the 19th century and ensured that it s never been out of print since It was the decisive influence in opening up the Biblical world as a setting for historical fiction which innumerable authors since have made use of and in opening up the minds of conservative Protestant readers in the English speaking world to the legitimacy of fiction as an art form These are no mean achievements by any objective measure Wallace ranks as one of the most influential and significant American authors of his period although you would never discover this from most of the official literary histories and academic survey coursesNote I read
