Sur la plage de Chesil by Ian McEwan, France Camus-Pichon

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Sur la plage de Chesil Such is Ian McEwan s genius that despite rambling nature walks and the naming of birds his subject matter remains hermetically sealed in the hearts of two people p It is when Edward and Florence and respectively marry and repair to a hotel on the Dorset coast for their honeymoon They are both virgins both apprehensive about what s next and in Florence s case utterly and blindly terrified and repelled by the little she knows Through a tense dinner in their room because Florence has decided that the weather is not fine enough to dine on the terrace they are attended by two local boys acting as waiters The cameo appearances of the boys and Edward and Florence s parents and siblings serve only to underline the emotional isolation of the two principals Florence says of herself she lacked some simple mental trick that everyone else had a mechanism so ordinary that no one ever mentioned it an immediate sensual connection to people and events and to her own needs and desires p p They are on the cusp of a rather ordinary marital undertaking in differing states of readiness willingness and ardor McEwan says Where he merely suffered conventional first night nerves she experienced a visceral dread a helpless disgust as palpable as seasickness Edward having denied himself even the release of self pleasuring for a week in order to be tip top for Florence is mentally pawing the ground His sensitivity keeps him from being obvious but he is getting anxious Florence on the other hand knows that she is not capable of the kind of arousal that will make any of this easy She has held Edward off for a year and now the reckoning is upon her p p McEwan is the master of the defining moment that place and time when once it has taken place nothing will ever be the same after it It does not go well and Florence flees the room As she understood it there were no words to name what had happened there existed no shared language in which two sane adults could describe such events to each other Edward eventually follows her and they have a poignant and painful conversation where accusations are made ugly things are said and roads are taken from which in the case of these two the way back cannot be found Late in Edward s life he realizes Love and patience if only he had them both at once would surely have seen them both through This beautifully told sad story could have been conceived and written only by Ian McEwan i Valerie Ryan i p
