"The Power of the Dog" by Thomas Savage is a novel set in the American West during the early 20th century. The story centers around two brothers, Phil and George Burbank, who come from a wealthy Montana ranching family. Phil, the older brother, is domineering, cruel, and manipulative, while George is sensitive, artistic, and kind-hearted.
As the brothers grow older, their differences become more pronounced, and their relationship becomes increasingly strained. When George falls in love with a widow and her son, Phil sees it as a threat to his own power and sets out to destroy them.
Savage's novel is a powerful exploration of family dynamics, masculinity, and the destructive nature of power. It is a haunting and deeply affecting work that has earned a place as a classic of Western literature.
- "He [Phil] thought: We can't bear the truth about ourselves. We all have to lie to ourselves to live. Otherwise we'd go crazy."
- "He [George] thought of Phil and then he thought of himself and then he felt sick and then he thought he was going to die."
