READ La femme rompue

In salida la edad la soledad la agonía del amor Metáforas a la vez de esa parte de fracaso ue todo destino humano depara A pesar del tiempo transcurrido desde la escritura y pub. All around me the world lies like an immense hypothesis that I no longer verifyI found myself in a reading slump so I left my personal library and wandered into the public library of my new city there I ran across this collection I enjoyed reading these cleverly worded paragraphs the shape of Beauvoir s sentences the intensity wrapped in lucid lines Her characters make sense of life on the page and when they discover the why in the actions of others the reader is invited along for the journey There is something special about entering the consciousness of another and exploring things about the world the loss of passion and intimacy the rediscovery of self and body There are three stories in this collection but I preferred The Age of Discretion and The Woman Destroyed for their sensory movement pacing and character transformation Unfortunately The Monologue s structure didn t keep me grounded

Se escuchan auí las voces de tres mujeres en los tres relatos ue incluye esta obra La mujer rota La edad de la discreción y Mónologo ue se debaten con palabras en situaciones s. Rich and powerful writing in these three novellas I will definitely read of this author SPOILERS FOLLOW BELOW FOR ALL 3 NOVELLAS The first novella The Age of Discretion centers around the aging process and the end of careers of both husband and wife In addition there s the bitter disappointment the woman feels after the son she has groomed to follow in her footsteps as a professor turns thirty and changes career and political outlook to go into government service His mother feels it s all about his wife and father in law pushing him to make money and get a real Job Amazingly she turns against her son in an incredibly brutal way She throws her son out of her house and says things like I cannot love anyone I do not respect And to her husband Do you think I ought to see him again This is their sonThe couple is both around 60 He still works as a scientist but feels only younger people can contribute Great scientists are valuable to science in the first half of their lives and harmful in the second uote from Bachelard She argues with him until her latest book that she thought of as filled with new insights is panned by both critics and friends as a summary of her earlier work In earlier days I never used to worry about old people I looked upon them as the dead whose legs still kept moving The second novella The Monologue is a bitter screed by a woman left alone and abandoned at age 44 Her daughter off on her own died five years ago It s flying in the face of nature that my own brother my own mother should prefer my ex husband to me And I wanted decent clean children I didn t want Francis to become a fairy like Nanard I m not ill I live alone because your swine of a father ditched me he buttered me up then he tortured me he even knocked me aboutI have weapons I ll use them he ll come back to me I shan t go on rotting all alone in this dump with those people on the next floor who trample me underfoot and the ones next door who wake me every morning with their radio and no one to bring me so much as a crust when I m hungry All those fat cows have a man to protect them and kids to wait on them and me nothing She envisions her enemies roasting in hell You owe me this revenge God I insist that you grant it to me And of course through this screed she reveals so much of herself to us so that we see why she has been abandoned The title story The Woman Destroyed is written as a diary over six months or so A woman has a husband and two daughters one locally and one in the US that she seldom sees Her husband admits to her that he is having an affair With the advice of her friends she agrees to let him continue with it taking the attitude that men his age do these things it will pass That turns out to be a mistake All her life she only worked in the home He still has his career his wife his mistress and good times She has nothing Even with her women friends all she talks about is her situation with her husband When she hears his key in the lock there was that horrible taste in my mouth the taste of dread The same exactly as when I used to go to see my father dying in the nursing home It seems to me that I no longer have anything whatever to do I always used to be busy Now everything knitting cooking reading putting on a record everything seems pointless Women who do nothing can t stand those who work Did her husband s mistress really say that Good stories and excellent writingParis street scene from dreamstimecomPhoto of the author from alphaaeoncoimages

    ENGLISH SPANISH The Woman Destroyed by Simone de Beauvoir Warning do not read this if you can't stand unlikeable characters For the rest of you don't miss this In a current world where readers demand strong female role models the so called badass heroines kick ass fierce strong it might seem weird to read about the thoughts and reflections of women passed their 40's and even in their 60's full of flaws of doubts of fa

    I must admit I started this book with A LOT of negative reviews in mind I remember De Beauvoir being called pretentious petty and generally often treated like a joke at least by a great part of my teachers scholars that they uoted
