Characters On Leave

Andful of reviews it was never reprinted it disappeared from view With no outcome to the war in sight its power to disturb was too much to bear Through David Bellos's translation this lost classic has been rediscovered Spare forceful and moving it describes a week in the lives of a sergeant a corporal and an infantryman each home on leave in Paris What these soldier. One of the things I appreciated most about On Leave was that and how much it highlighted the mundane the business of everyday living as opposed to the Xs and Os of war and I felt this way for two reasons 1 most of life is mundane even for soldiers and 2 when a novelist gets into the mapping of battle and motives and causes and outcomes we as readers begin either rationalizing or condemning the conflict under discussion and if the writer s hope is to demonstrate the horrific waste of war the focus must be on what has been lost on the shells the soldiers are in the process of becoming Anselme nails this he doesn t give a damn about whether or not the war is useless or can be justified because one shouldn t give a damn War lays waste to the futures and welfare and health of those who fight it and because those futures are precious nothing else matters Some reviewers see a thinness of character development but I think Anselme gives us a great deal in his protagonists with which to empathize Lachaume s abandonment and his fear of confronting his wife and the grotesue existence of such a fear in a world riddled with much immediately pressing things to fear like death on a battlefield Valette s having been pressed into a conflict that he is at ideological odds with and the impotent rage he feels about needing his family to do what he cannot to vouchsafe his future Lasteyrie s randiness and his flouting of convention and rules as means to reclaiming his sense of self from the political and militaristic mechanisms that have appropriated it if the characters ever feel less fleshed out or well rounded than we re accustomed to seeing characters it s because their own ideas about what they have become and are becoming is dictated by one thing and one thing only the need to live and their belief that they will not If the other characters feel like faces that merely enter the frame on occasion it s because they are our protagonists don t know them any The book therefore pins down the experience of alienation almost as well as I ve ever seen a writer address that theme and I found it all exceedingly moving at times particularly in Anselme s development of the theme in images metaphors and situations most obviously Lachaume s irrational paralyzing fear during the lunch at the Valette home that he and Valette were in fact dead and most beautifully in Lachaume s observation of the man and woman walking ahead of him holding hands and parting when oncoming pedestrians force them to only to return to one another s side to touch hands how easy it is to take connection for granted how unbearable when the circumstances of one s life have made connection impossibleAnother thing I really loved is how good the translation must be I don t read French but one can tell a bad translation if the prose feels labored or overly concerned with ornamentation see Archer s translation of Kristin Lavransdatter for a bad example Nunnally s translation of it for a good example This translation reads so lucidly and so like a novel written in the mid late 50s as it was that the translation feels like a noteworthy achievement The prose felt a little like Salinger s at times and a great deal like the prose one finds in Capote s Breakfast at Tiffany s and Plath s The Bell Jar it s crisp and contained and precise And the novel felt very much cut from the cloth of its time and place thematically too as I was reading I was increasingly reminded of one of my favorite films Cleo from 5 to 7 released in 1962 and in which we see in real time a French pop star wandering around Paris as she awaits the results of a cancer test she like the soldiers in On Leave is killing time as she awaits a terminal likelihood or eventuality and during her walk she encounters and befriends a young soldier waiting to disembark for Algeria Both the Anselme novel and the Agnes Varda film are piercing contemplations of feeling wholly cut off from collective existence wholly adrift and incapable of even knowing what to do with one s terror I appreciate the different ways Anselme allows this to manifest in his narrative whether it s Lachaume s flashes of anger Valette s breakdown in the arms of his father on the train platform or Lasteyrie s constant gaming of controlled systems which seems an attempt by him to persuade himself that if a phone booth or a pinball game can be manipulated perhaps his fate can too I really loved these characters as characters and as peopleI also loved how evocative the novel was how canny its descriptions of Paris bit even so how canny its descriptions of one s apprehension of place I ve never been to Paris but as the characters walk along the Seine marveling at the view s power to intoxicate I was reminded of my need of Wyoming s open spaces and my adoration of London The lunch scene was my favorite bit in the book in large part because it showed powerfully the disconnect between life as it is and life as idealists wish it were and just how raw and filled with sorrow the space between those positions those who live in the world and those who condemn that world from a distance because of its failure to suare with their political dreams can be We see a similar disconnect in the novel s first scenes with the veteran reciting his memoirs war has become some romanticized thing to him and is anything but for the protagonists there beginning a respite from it If characters are talking of frog legs and snails it s partly because they re purposefully avoiding the elephant in the room the crushing devastation these young men have experienced and the horrors they ve likely both witnessed and perpetrated Anselme s awareness that human beings skirt these things with small talk rings absolutely true and makes the presence of that elephant in the room all the haunting and heartwrenchingAnyhow loved On Leave It was chosen in my book club and I don t mind saying I was very apprehensive about it It had been a three star book until that lunch scene and then it rose to four stars and might have hit five stars had the last page or so not felt so polemical Anselme made explicit at the very end what had throughout been wonderfully implicit and so the very ending felt like a minor letdown But otherwise bravo Mr Anselme Wild power to disturb was too much to bear Through David Bellos's

    I read the edition translated by David Bellos Penguin 2014As I have not read the original French text I cannot say whether it is poorly translated or difficult to translate However I found the novel dull and depressing and in some places either lacking in meaning or lacking in context Maybe Anselme meant it to

    I received this as a Goodreads Giveaway While I found this book extremely sad and depressing it gives the American reader a very uniue view of how soldiers in another country France were treated when they came home from an unpopular war These young men were as our Vietnam Vets were treated A difficult read because you want these young men to be understood They have given up their lives for their country so than

    I really enjoyed this book I agree that the characters didn't have a chance to really develop but I think that was the point Anselme was perhaps trying to make Soldiers at wartime don't have time to stop and ponder a lot of the existential dilemmas we would like for them to explore On top of that a soldier onl
