387 Short Stories : Day 69 : Story 69 : Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx

Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx Title: Brokeback Mountain
Author: Annie Proulx

There is always this time when you are incomplete if you have not read a particular short story. For me, that time existed till I read Brokeback Mountain, way back in 2002. We all know of Brokeback Mountain as probably the “gay” movie; however it is more than just that.

Brokeback Mountain to me is just love between men. It is there. Long and still and never changes, not even after death. Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist are hired to herd sheep on Brokeback Mountain and that is how it all begins. They marry, have kids and yet their love for each other only deepens. They cannot do anything about it, but meet once in four years or so. And then there is the twist in the tale that changes everything.

Brokeback Mountain is one of the most tender love stories you will ever read. I cannot do any justice to it. I can only tell you to read it and cry.
