He would be honored by her book about him, I think, but also he'd make fun of her seriousness, including some of the (very few) observations of an educated daughter, though she is careful to honor him though her use of language. New codes to learn, a chasm between the old world and the new one and the impossibility to make the old world and the new one mesh properly because they have no common ground. Và tôi đã phải bỏ việc dọn nhà sang một bên, để đọc lại cuốn sách một lần nữa, có lẽ chỉ vì cái tên mang lại nhiều đồng cảm với tình trạng hiện tại của bản thân, ừ thì, ai lại chẳng cần một chỗ trong đời, nhưng "chỗ" ấy là một nơi chốn cụ thể nhưng cũng có thể chỉ là một ai đó để ta nương tựa mà chỗ của ta là ở bên cạnh người đó.

Ao mesmo tempo que faz uma homenagem a seu falecido pai em O lugar, Annie Ernaux parece realizar uma autocrítica. I kept thinking about this scene while I was walking to the bus stop, with anger and something resembling shame. I thought I'd start with a four book subscription - beginning with King Kong Theory - which I quickly re-upped for a further twelve books, and A Man's Place was the first title in that second run. But still she does it – and it is thrilling to read Ernaux working out, word by word, what she deems appropriate to include in each text.

Ernaux usa uno stile anteriore, mette fra la penna e il sé sulla pagina una distanza oggettiva che crea una storia di fiducia e innocenza e nel linguaggio lirico ci consegna un segreto fedele al riparo necessario, alla comune salvezza, alla sorvegliata destinazione. Everything that touches on language is, in my memory, a cause for resentment and painful bickering, much more than money. These two authors do so much with deceptively simple language that it takes a skilled translator to capture and reflect that clever simplicity.

I was certainly fully aware of my privilege at growing up with all the education and cultural capital available to me. I waited there until they came to fetch me for my practical, which involved giving a lesson in front of an inspector and two assessors, both distinguished lecturers in French.As for the book itself, A Man's Place , which won the prestigious Prix Renaudot in 1984, is a fascinating overview of Annie Ernaux's complex relationship with her father.

Imajući sve ovo u vidu, stiče se utisak da se neozbiljno pristupilo kako prevođenju ovog dela, tako i lekturi i mislim da je potrebno ili ispraviti sve što je nezgrapno, propušteno ili netačno, ili uraditi jedan sasvim nov prevod na srpski. Maybe I can turn to writing about my own father again because she urges me to, as she urges us all to do. Mas Annie Ernaux optou por nada omitir como se necessitasse de castigar-se a si própria com as recordações e simultaneamente abalar o leitor.S’autoriser les chemins de traverse et les pas de côté, parler surtout de livres, donc, mais ne pas s’interdire d’autres horizons. It's therefore no surprise to find that some people compare Ernaux's work to Modiano's, such as in the case of Sarah Elizabeth Cant 's thesis , which is referenced in the Further Reading section of Ernaux's Wikipedia entry . I don't know, it's an unspectacular story and style, at least in this translation, but also quietly moving. In their 2019 interview with the author , The Guardian referred to her as "perhaps the greatest chronicler of French society in the last 50 years – a kind of guardian of collective memory.

Ernaux was pushed on by her mother, who had left school aged 12 but was a voracious reader and believed books and learning were the ticket to a different future. My father was taken out of school to work on his parent’s land at age 8; however, he lived at home until he married my mother. in a humorous tone, it connects to shame and inadequacy felt by her father due to his humble working class background wherein he is doomed to a life of solitude and distrust; the shame that also binds him to his social settings and prevent him to move along with the flow time and evolution. Annie Ernaux climbed up the social ladder and landed in the academic middle-class world through school. His greatest satisfaction, possibly even the raison d’être of his existence, was the fact that I belonged to the world which had scorned him.Even she keeps an analytical tone, it is very moving and I could hear my blue-collar grandmother’s mentality in her words. I liked it, thought it felt quite familiar to me, almost as if I had written it myself about my own father, who was born in 1913 and died at the age of 76, close to twenty years ago, on the operating table, in heart by-pass surgery.
