But there are some memories which we consciously keep suppressed through our life, perhaps because of some fear, or shame, these memories, which have been suppressed for long, strive to come out, to be expressed so that one could make peace with them. I don't know whether the author was actually confused about her love towards her father due to the grief associated with her father's death or whether the central idea was lost in translation. In the above paragraph, I sense her emotions of separation, the feeling of her father as unknowable, the sense of a lack of connection between them.

Od pomoći mogu samo biti trunčice sećanja, niti koje nas vezuju sa nama samima i sa onima zbog kojih smo tu gde jesmo. More recently she received the International Strega Prize, the Prix Formentor, the French-American Translation Prize, and the Warwick Prize for Women in Translation for The Years, which was also shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize in 2019. There are no emotions – rare case considering the novel is an elegy for the death of the father of the narrator (Annie? In British English (I can’t speak to others) ‘one’ has class connotations, so that’s probably why that wasn’t used. I had similar reservations while reading Joan Didion's "Blue Nights", the feeling that intense grief and deeply personal regret, even when beautifully expressed, should be kept private.

There is a translucent quality to the way that she colours her mother’s life in the book that is dedicated to her, but her father’s life here is depicted as a packed up, boxed entity. cuốn sách gây ấn tượng bởi sự giản dị và đi vào lòng tôi bởi sự chân thành, tình yêu của người con gái đối với bố nhưng lại cứ tỏ ra dửng dưng, chối bỏ tình cảm ấy. Barely educated and valued since childhood strictly for his labor, Ernaux's father had grown into a hard, practical man who showed his family little affection. It pains me that I only discovered her work last year, but then I'd only just discovered Patrick Modiano the year before, so I guess this journey is all about stumbling across new things that are well-established and have a rich pedigree.

I explained twenty-five lines – referenced by number – taken from Balzac’s novel Le Père Goriot to a class of sixth-formers from the maths stream. Between the lines you occasionally notice some self-doubt, namely whether she has not betrayed her own environment by her entry into the world of bourgeoisie; and perhaps that's the reason why she wrote this book: “Je hasarde une explication: écrire c'est le dernier recours quand on a trahi. Por opção, afinal, Annie Ernaux ao narrar a vida do seu pai, uma vida sujeita a necessidades, não pretendeu fazer algo de apaixonante ou emocionante; não há poesia de recordação, nem de escárnio jubiloso. And in doing so, taking him part by part, we discover everything that made him be, parent’s parts we may even recognize, in ours.

C’è molto dolore in queste pagine: scavato, analizzato, scandagliato, sezionato con semplicità e nitidezza. The original French title, La Place , means quite literally 'the place', but it also cleverly adds the feminine element to what is ostensibly the story of a man. There have been a few references in the book which shows the inadequacy of the life of the father of author, however, beneath the surface it represents something more poignant and deeper about our life itself. It’s like reliving memories as you do with old suppressed memories, sometimes to re-imagine them, sometimes to get away with them. Ernaux could only achieve this through a State scholarship she had received, but his pride led them to keep those details quiet.

She just collates her father’s words, tastes, and mannerisms, the main events of his life, all the external evidence of his existence, which is coincidently shared by her too. aynı zamanda köle gibi çalışılan bir zamandan işçiliğe, sonrasında ise esnaflığa uzanan bir sınıf yolculuğu bu.São as lutas diárias de pai e mãe que propiciam à autora o seu futuro, mas cada vez mais a distância da realidade vivida até o início de sua idade adulta, como se fosse necessário fugir desse passado e da vida rústica e interiorana. While the use of gender in French grammar makes it both difficult, and potentially quite problematic, it also adds something - especially in situations like this where more can be read into it.

Thực sự thì tôi đã đọc cuốn tiểu thuyết mỏng này cách đây 6 năm, khi nó vừa được xuất bản, một cuốn sách được viết với sự điềm tĩnh đáng ngạc nhiên khi thực ra đây là một cuốn tiểu thuyết bán tự truyện kể về chính cha của tác giả. This neutral way of writing comes to me naturally, it is the very same style I used when I wrote home telling my parents the latest news.
