[E–Libro] (La femme rompue) Autor Simone de Beauvoir
Me I consider it a great book However I felt so bad fo Reading devastating French literature on public transport is my fave pastime It is not my habit to give books or anything lse star ratings but looking though other reviews I saw that four was a popular choice for this collection of short stories and that felt about right So went with four and indeed further reading confirmed that despite one trip to Rome there is nothing in this book about post war Italian politics or curly haired comedians So four star indeed and no movement on thatWhat we have is a collection of three short stories The Age of Discretion The Monologue and The Woman Destroyed They are all in the tragic mode I apologise if you saw the title of the collection and imagined something different from a not Soft Focus exactly cheerful but well observed depiction of unhappy states of mindEach story spoiler alert focuses on a womanach of the three women of unhappy states of mindEach story spoiler alert focuses on a woman ach of the three women in relationship to the narrator of Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter potential other adult selves maybe so all three women are not only French but specifically Parisian and what I would call from a British point of view upper middle class research scientists university academics potential government ministers and the like view spoiler though I suppose a government minister must by definition be upper class ven if they are not particularly classy but still I find myself bridling at that idea a curious thing one s own prejudices hide spoiler All around me the world lies like an immense hypothesis that I no longer verifyI found myself in a reading slump so I left my personal library and wandered into the public library of my new city there I ran across this collection I Faker enjoyed reading these cleverly worded paragraphs the shape of Beauvoir s sentences the intensity wrapped in lucid lines Her characters make sense of life on the page and when they discover the why in the actions of others the reader is invited along for the journey There is something special aboutntering the consciousness of another and Lawbreakers Suspense Stories exploring things about the world the loss of passion and intimacy the rediscovery of self and body There are three stories in this collection but I preferred The Age of Discretion and The Woman Destroyed for their sensory movement pacing and character transformation Unfortunately The Monologue s structure didn t keep me grounded Three stories The Age of Discretion Monologue and The Woman Destroyed make up this volume The Age of Discretion deals with ageing loss and a woman s refusal to accept her son s career choice as she stares down the tunnel of age Monologue was unreadable a woman s rant through New Year sve celebrations she s in her forties all alone bitter twisted By far the most powerful piece was The Woman Destroyed Moniue is forty four happy in her long marriage to Maurice The novella takes the form of her diary HIPPO IN THE GARDEN entries Then she discovers that Maurice is having an affair A friend counsels her to play it cool to let the affair play its course and then Maurice will come back to her But far from playing it cool or trying not to give in to jealousy Moniue finds that she cannot let Maurice have his affair without feeling jealous unhappy and understandably full of rage A brilliant heart felt piece I must admit I started this book with A LOT of negative reviews in mind I remember De Beauvoir being called pretentious petty and generally often treated like a joke at least by a great part of my teachers scholars that they uoted Despite my initial animosity the book is literally phenomenal The first story for me at least was really aesthetically pleasingly in the descriptions of the nature The main character was relatable in a lot of ways but because of that at thend I could feel the disappointment bitterness and chunks of grief The last story presented bit by bit woman s life crumbling as cliche as it is because of a male What I found the most moving was the contrast of how the Women started their stories secure accomplished and self confident but Spinal Trauma ended up in a place of seemingly no return to their past lives Of courseach one of them has dealt with their problems differently One was one tried to be rational while others have been tormented by Shadow (New Species, emotions Reading such detailed description of one smotions can be hard 細味人生100篇 especially if You are in bad place yourself On the other hand this book has one of the best descriptions of feelings I havever read It made me suffer
*with them share *them share hopes dreams and feel their hopelessness Even though the protagonists are miserable at best most of the times I feel like this book celebrates womanhood so beautifully Not only the MAIN focus is put on women and their thoughts but it makes one wonder if the book itself could be so genius if not written by a female What I mean is that it shows such The Gathering (Darkness Rising, emotional vulnerability which men at that time oftenven nowadays cannot stomach After reading this book I honestly dont care if being a fan of De Beauvoir s work makes me a crazy feminist and a rather laugh worthy part of literary society as my teachers would say In hindsight younger me should have known that people praising the so called dead white men club wouldn t be really objective on a piece of writing so overwhelmingly female and i mean it in the best way possible This book brought me great joy taught me a lot about my motions I would recommend to anyone who likes literature that is tender but at the same time drastic.

Rich and powerful writing in these three novellas I will definitely read of this author SPOILERS FOLLOW BELOW FOR ALL 3 NOVELLAS The first novella The Age of Discretion centers around the aging process and the Experiential Learning end of careers of both husband and wife In addition there s the bitter disappointment the woman feels after the son she has groomed to follow in her footsteps as a professor turns thirty and changes career and political outlook to go into government service His mother feels it s all about his wife and father in law pushing him to make money and get a real Job Amazingly she turns against her son in an incredibly brutal way She throws her son out of her house and says things like I cannot love anyone I do not respect And to her husband Do you think I ought to see him again This is their sonThe couple is both around 60 He still works as a scientist but feels only younger people can contribute Great scientists are valuable to science in the first half of their lives and harmful in the second uote from Bachelard She argues with him until her latest book that she thought of as filled with new insights is panned by both critics and friends as a summary of herarlier work In Die Neurobiologie des Glücks earlier days I never used to worry about old people I looked upon them as the dead whose legs still kept moving The second novella The Monologue is a bitter screed by a woman left alone and abandoned at age 44 Her daughter off on her own died five years ago It s flying in the face of nature that my own brother my own mother should prefer myx husband to me And I wanted decent clean children I didn t want Francis to become a fairy like Nanard I m not ill I live alone because your swine of a father ditched me he buttered me up then he tortured me he ven knocked me aboutI have weapons I ll use them he ll come back to me I shan t go on rotting all alone in this dump with those people on the next floor who trample me underfoot and the ones next door who wake me very morning with their radio and no one to bring me so much as a crust when I m hungry All those fat cows have a man to protect them and kids to wait on them and me nothing She A New Philosophy of History envisions hernemies roasting in hell You owe me this revenge God I insist that you grant it to me And of course through this screed she reveals so much of herself to us so that we see why she has been abandoned The title story The Woman Destroyed is written as a diary over six months or so A woman has a husband and two daughters one locally and one in the US that she seldom sees Her husband admits to her that he is having an affair With the advice of her friends she agrees to let him continue with it taking the attitude that men his age do these things it will pass That turns out to be a mistake All her life she only worked in the home He still has his career his wife his mistress and good times She has nothing Even with her women friends all she talks about is her situation with her husband When she hears his key in the lock there was that horrible taste in my mouth the taste of dread The same xactly as when I used to go to see horrible taste in my mouth the taste of dread The same xactly as when I used to go to see father dying
