Conhecimento Comum



I loved the first two sections and the concluding essay*; the other pieces I was more neutral on. Star ratings feel particularly silly for this kind of reading experience, but.

*Well, the concluding essay was frequently horrifying because it so deeply excavates certain pervasive strains of patriarchal self-conception (and, always through the self, a conception of the world). But informative, enlightening even.

Most reviews are by people who really liked this book. I did not like this book. So it goes. Some of the individual pieces of the book are really quite good
I remember the sky behind her was purple she
came towards me saying
Why are you alone in this huge blank garden
like a piece of electricity?Electricity?
Maybe she said cakes and tea true we were drinking gin it was long past
teatime but she was a highly original woman
as you'd expect from an accomplished poet writing a novel in verse. But the overall story annoyed and bored me. Geryon, the red winged monster of ancient myth, is re-imagined as a sad, pushed-around modern boy/adolescent/young adult. Herakles is his first love. Rather than slay him as in myth, Herakles merely breaks his sad young heart and Geryon meekly goes back to his mother's house. Years later, they hook up one more time. Geryon cries, Herakles says
Can't you ever just fuck and not think?
Modern myth never looked like such weak brew next to the ancient.

De schoonheid van de echtgenoot. Door: Anne Carson.

De eerste druk van De schoonheid van de echtgenoot verscheen in 2001 bij uitgeverij Meulenhoff, 23 jaar later brengt uitgeverij Koppernik een nieuwe versie uit.

Maggie Nelson is een grote fan van Carson, ze leest alles van haar las ik in een interview. Daarom lees ik Carson, grote fan van Maggie Nelson als ik ben. Ik begrijp (denk ik) wat Maggie zo aantrekt in het werk van Anne Carson: beiden hebben iets grensoverstijgends in hun denken en schrijven.

De schoonheid van de echtgenoot beschrijven is moeilijk. Op de cover staat: ‘een fictie-essay in 29 tango’s’. Ik zou daar aan toe willen voegen: tango’s volgend op een citaat van Keats. Een in elkaar stortend huwelijk wordt in woorden gevat. Woorden die poëtisch, filosofisch, fabelachtig, sprookjesgewijs aan elkaar worden geregen door een rode draad die schoonheid heet. Of waarheid. Echtheid.

Je leest dit best met mondjesmaat; om alles goed te laten doordringen en inwerken. Je leest het tot het einde en begint dan weer opnieuw. Omdat niet alles van de eerste keer duidelijk is maar dat hoeft ook niet. Dat is het echte leven, het huwelijk, ook niet. Je moet je er aan overgeven. Een spannend boek in feite. Geen ideaal geschenk voor Valentijn, of net weer wel.

There are lot of beautiful moments in here, lots of bittersweet which is my weak spot. I wish I could have taken my time with it, but I have a pile of books from the library and had to rush a bit.

I think I was expecting/hoping for more of a story arc and was disappointed when it ended up being pretty slice-of-life. Still, very good.
