Joel's Review of The World of Apu
The World of Apu(1960)
The final installment of the Apu Trilogy comes full circle with now Apu in his adult years. Recently graduated from college & a burning passion to write a novel.
However he finds himself lonely & longing for company & unintentionally finds himself married when his friend flees on his wife wedding day. Although not in love at first the couple fall in love quite quickly.
Sadly a tragedy strikes & Apu is truly unable to move on due to all the previous loss & grief & loses his mind. Arguably in this state he truly finds himself. A beautiful, sad & tender end to a trilogy of a human life.
