Very early in my life it was too late and Death came before the end of his story When he was still alive it had already happened The first very striking uote is on the opening page Like the second uote it teases about horrors not yet explained that may never be Marguerite Duras wrote this autobiographical novella over a few months around her 70th birthday The narrative is dreamy and disjointed Her family is damaged and disjointed She slips between first and third persons tenses and sheets The main characters are nameless and pronouns sometimes ambiguous I collected the shiny tesserae gradually constructing patches of story Some fit tightly others less so There s an erotic diversion to describe the innocently irresistible body of a schoolmate H l ne Lagonelle You could almost read the snippets in any order like JG Ballard s The Atrocity Exhibition which I reviewed HEREImage Scene on the ferry from the 1992 film which I ve not seen SourceThe pages exude the heat and humidity of French Indochina now Vietnam in 1929 Soporific fever drives lust and hormones Desperation changes standards Taboos are breached The writing is beautiful but there are constant allusions to fear madness and murder A powerful dissonance The crux of the story is a relationship she had as a 15 year old with a 27 year old man from Cholon after an encounter on a ferry She is white French but from an impoverished dysfunctional fatherless family He is rich but Chinese Race class and wealth should keep them apart And ageI was captivated by the mysterious undercurrents of a broken family and the lifelong ripples from a chance encounter on a mundane river crossing A metaphor for the whole story A child becomes an adult in an instant Red Flags He breathes her in the child It s not like other bodies it s not finished It launches itself wholly into pleasure as if it were grown up I became his child It seems unfair to compare this very personal piece to Lolita see my review HERE but I think one must Although Duras story takes place long before Nabokov s she wrote it long after and must have known of it Like Lolita the strange beauty of Duras language lures one into a distasteful story of an abused childThis teenager is also a vulnerable immature tomboy albeit not as knowing as Lolita is portrayed But we only see Lolita through Humbert s deluded self justifying eyes whereas in The Lover the author is describing herself making peace with her past The shocking aspect here is that her mother and older brothers are fully aware of what s going on They permit enable and defend it How can innocence be disgraced So asks her mother when her daughter s relationship is challengedEveryone the girl the man from Cholon her family acknowledges that she doesn t and won t ever love him though he claims to love her Her family enjoy lavish meals and financial benefits though won t even talk to the man himself This is child prostitution Image Woman waving a red flag SourceIn 18 months they don t talk about themselves let alone their future She likes the idea of his having other women which raises uestions about her own self esteemThe man is a victim of sorts ruled by fear especially of his father and looked down on by colonials because of his skin But he is an adult wanting to avoid or at least delay a suitable marriage so that he can prolong Love in its first violence Ambiguous MoralityDuras interpretation of the relationship is cloudy and contradictory When writing of her most vulnerable times she sometimes switches to third person as if distancing her adult self from her younger self She makes the point that the ineuality of age and wealth were counterbalanced by ineuality of race She writes with hindsight that she immediately realised her power over him and that the choice was hers alone But she also writes that she s where she has to be placed here which sounds like less of a choice Most unsettlingly of losing her virginity to this man she says in the third person She doesn t feel anything in particular no hate no repugnance either so probably it s already desire Ambiguous Truth The story of my life does not exist Duras provokes the reader on this point Photos are a small recurring and significant trope In particular she muses on a non existent one a photo of herself aged 15 that might have been taken but wasn t In it her clothes were chosen for crucial ambiguity The reader wonders what would not have happened if she d caught a different ferry that day If perhaps she actually didHowever long before she wrote this Duras wrote another semi autobiographical novel The Sea Wall in 1950 It presents a similar picture but notably different in other ways See Jim s excellent review hereIt would be easier to think this story is fiction but evidently the general narrative is true Tragedyuotes The light of the sun blurred and annihilated all colour and at night the light fell from the sky in cataracts of pure transparency in torrents of silence and immobility It s not that you have to achieve anything it s that you have to get away from where you are When I was a child my mother s unhappiness took the place of dreams Their disgrace is a matter of course Both are doomed to discredit because of the kind of body they have caressed by lovers kissed by their lips consigned to the infamy of a pleasure unto death the mysterious death of lovers without love ConclusionThis is a brilliant piece of writing but not at all what I expected There are far mentions of fear madness and death than of love or even passion It is disturbing or should be than expected I have friends and have read of others who ve had under age age gap relationships like this and sworn they were positive milestones One couple are still together after 35 years

L'Amant author Marguerite Duras review ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Aistra meilė mirtis ir atminimas Kurdama šį romaną septyniasdešimtmetė rašytoja pasinėrė į prisiminimu. And the time comes when we ve to make peace with our past to let go of moments we cherished dearly or of those which brought torment endless the love we lived or the one we denied emphatically the people we admired foolishly and the ones we d to abandon things fall apart and what is left are the crumbled spikes we call memories And time comes when those fragmented pieces of the past are to be jotted down the unspoken tale to be spoken after all to let out the stories inside us not to seek a sympathetic heart or to moan over our losses we say our hearts just for the sake of saying to breathe freely to be at peace Here is the tale told in most apathetic fashion touching the innermost chords of the flesh in us which beats with the same rhythm as of the indifferent narrator after all we ve all been the lovers and we ve loved A love like this so strong it never happens again in a lifetimenever There s nothing new in the tale if you re looking for a love story you re gravely mistaken There s no such love nor the story The kind of love that starts with dewy glances and perturbs hearts the kind of love with the happy ending of togetherness or the kind of love that longs for the beloved in dark nights with juices flowing down the loins marguerite pens down events from her childhood in most detached of voices hers is not the lush style with poetic diction there s a marked dispassion in the tone and daunting flair in descriptions of her Indochina which is Vietnam today and of her Chinese lover a man of twenty seven besotted by the skinny French girl of fifteen who hides her poverty stricken face under a Manish hat who wears clothes that were in fashion a dozen years ago who has a body of a child and no flesh to attract men but a face of a half goddess and half prostitute veiled behind his limousine glass the lover falls for her in a fair morning in his way to cholon he can never marry her he tells the child every time he makes love to her this stripped naked reality saddens the most erotic of scenes tooLike a father he tends to her needs like a lover he worships her passionately as for her she s found a haven in him a home away from home from those desperately poor people that are her family the child loves his skin as he loves her untainted soul they never promise nothing they weave no future as the lovers know they have none Sometimes we just want to lie next to someone and sleep knowing our hearts are safe the surety of sharing the same sky appeases much as duras penned it down in her 70s her heart must ve been swelled with the thought of her lover the faded face the gone fragrance the screaming silence of her war ravaged Saigon I see the war as like him spreading everywhere breaking in everywhere stealing imprisoning always there merged and mingled with everything present in the body in the mind awake and asleep all the time a prey to the intoxicating passion of occupying that delightful territory a child s body the bodies of those less strong of conuered peoples Because evil is there at the gates against the skinHe will always feel the same for her he said
