Childhood by Nathalie Sarraute

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Childhood As one of the leading proponents of the i nouveau roman i Nathalie Sarraute is often remembered for her novels including i The Golden Fruits i which earned her the Prix international de litterature in But her carefully crafted and evocative memoir i Childhood i may in fact be Sarraute s most accessible and emotionally open work Written when the author was eighty three years old but dealing with only the first twelve years of her life i Childhood i is constructed as a dialogue between Sarraute and her memory Sarraute gently interrogates her interlocutor in search of her own intentions more precise accuracy and indeed the truth Her relationships with her mother in Russia and her stepmother in Paris are especially heartbreaking long gone actions are prodded and poked at by Sarraute until they yield some semblance of fact imbuing these maternalistic interactions with new deeper meaning Each vignette is bristling with detail and shows the power of memory through prose by turns funny sad and poetic Capturing the ambience of Paris and Russia in the earliest part of the twentieth century while never giving up the lyrical style of Sarraute s novels this book has much to offer both memoir enthusiasts and fiction lovers .

The setting of Nathalie Sarraute s Do You Hear Them is a dinner conversation between a father and his old friend about a recently acquired pre Columbian statue As they discuss the merits of the piece and art in general the father hears his children upstairs giggling This childish mirth is barbaric and devastating to the father for in their laughter he hears them mocking his old fashioned viewpoint and the energy he wastes by collecting lifeless objects In his mind they have no respect for what has been of greatest importance in his life, No description available, Dans une action concentr e o tout ce qui compte est ce qui n est pas dit deux hommes s affrontent prennent tour de r le la position du dominant ou du domin deux amis se brouillent peut tre pour un oui ou pour un nom La tension qui existe sous les mots les plus simples les mouvements physiologiques et psychiques souterrains communiquent au public une sensation de malaise en m me temps qu ils le fascinent Car cette dispute est la n tre ces mots nous les avons prononc s ces silences nous les avons entendus Tout un pass refoul se repr sente une profondeur inconsciente des pulsions agressives Par les mots nous nous d chirons nous m mes et nous d chirons les autres Mais le silence est pire, A young writer has his heart set on his aunt s large apartment With this seemingly simple conceit the characters of The Planetarium are set in orbit and a galaxy of argument resentment and bitterness erupts Telling the story from various points of view Sarraute focuses below the surface on the emotional lives of the characters in a way that surpasses even Virginia Woolf Always deeply engaging The Planetarium reveals the deep disparity between the way we see ourselves and the way others see us
