Gor Saga Reviews
A great story, though Duffy has a really jarring way of moving the action. It often took me a couple lines to realize someone different in a different place was talking, and I would have to reread a bit. And hey, can you tell I'm using it in a paper I'm writing?...In this novel, we meet a new mad scientist, Norman Forester. A primate researcher, Forester secretly impregnates one of his research subjects, a gorilla named Mary. The result of this pregnancy is Gordon (Gor), half-human, half-ape. Once he realizes his experiment has succeeded, he feels "an almost divine right to do anything. Nature wept violated over him. Forester recalled from somewhere, though he couldn’t track down where, a picture of the rape of Lucrece, as English had made the Roman matron: the parting thighs and lips, the eyes between sparkle and horror at the complicity of her own lust, Tarquin’s raised dagger. Forester had taken a scalpel to her and she had given herself up to him." (16) Forester certainly sees Gor as less than human, but also less than ape, because Gor is not a natural being, but one owing his existence to Forester’s experiments. Forester would readily admit to “playing God.” In fact, he would boast about it. Creating Gor “gave him a sense of power and achievement so strong that it was almost an erotic pleasure” (62). Although critics have compared Forester to Victor Frankenstein, I think Moreau is a more apt parallel. Whereas Frankenstein is repentant almost immediately after his creation comes to life, Forester, like Moreau, never shows an ounce of regret about the suffering of his creation. Gor, like Frankenstein’s monster, gets a narrative voice. However, as Susan Squier notes, the “painful testimony” of Frankenstein’s monster still portrays him as an “alien object of scientific intervention” more than a speaking subject (371). In Duffy’s novel, however, “we experience fully half the novel through Gor’s eyes, and by the conclusion it is Gor’s perceptions, rather than those of the government or religion, that are affirmed” (371).
Despite jumping around from one scene to the next, which can be a little disconcerting, Maureen Duffy succeeds in capturing the imagination as she tells the tale of a half human, half gorilla boy thrust into the world by his unfeeling creator. It is thought-provoking stuff and the subject matter alone made it difficult to put down.
I watched the tv version of this back in the mid eighties as a child and it stayed with me, I was expecting so much more from the book but was left disappointed, far too much scientific jargon and not enough emotion
I may be prejudiced because of my love for post apocalyptic stories and, though not a survival tale in that genre, it does have a similar flavour.Dated now perhaps, but still a good read. I will no doubt take it down from the shelf and read it again in a year or twos time.
