These two authors do so much with deceptively simple language that it takes a skilled translator to capture and reflect that clever simplicity. Un pueblo donde los vecinos vigilaban la blancura y el estado de la ropa tendida a secar, y sabían si se vaciaban los orinales todos los días.

By choosing to expose the web of his life through a number of selected facts and details, I feel that I am gradually moving away from the figure of my father.Me doblegué a la exigencia del mundo donde vivo, que se esfuerza por hacerte olvidar los recuerdos del mundo anterior como si fueran algo de mal gusto. This description beckoned me to explore her writing so I’m pleased to have finally read one of her books. I think that movin into an upper social class is easier when it’s making money through trade and being richer than your family was.

I have read A Woman’s Story by the author previously, which was about her mother, A Man’s Place is apparently about her father. I kept thinking about this scene while I was walking to the bus stop, with anger and something resembling shame. Talvez isso tenha feito com que eu demorasse muito tempo para escrever essa resenha, como se eu precisasse entender o que aquelas poucas páginas deixaram em mim. She is obviously feeling guilty for distancing herself from her father while transitioning towards middle class.

Nessa leitura, inclusive, Annie faz isso de forma mais nítida, já que ela utiliza a figura do pai para refletir sobre a relação entre os dois e fazer uma análise de sua realidade social. There's a desire to rise above and transcend his own roots, as well as to impress those of a 'higher class' with his decorum and manners.

Nonetheless, a title is a title, and when we get deeper into the actual translation of this book, it's remarkably well done. Thực sự thì tôi đã đọc cuốn tiểu thuyết mỏng này cách đây 6 năm, khi nó vừa được xuất bản, một cuốn sách được viết với sự điềm tĩnh đáng ngạc nhiên khi thực ra đây là một cuốn tiểu thuyết bán tự truyện kể về chính cha của tác giả.Arnold-Arnie, my father's name--taught me his working-class ways: How to bowl, hunt, fish, repair a car--men’s things, and he was both proud and fearful that I went to college to become a teacher with few really practical skills.

She just collates her father’s words, tastes, and mannerisms, the main events of his life, all the external evidence of his existence, which is coincidently shared by her too. Even she keeps an analytical tone, it is very moving and I could hear my blue-collar grandmother’s mentality in her words. Dok je kod Handkea reč o neverici, odloženoj konsterniranosti i bezdanu koji nosi samoubistvo majke, Erno pišući o svom umrlom ocu, piše o boji jednog vremena i o sebi u njemu. Annie Ernaux’s father died exactly two months after she passed her exams for a teaching certificate.he had been able to provide a life of grace and class to her daughter which led her ultimately to be part of the ‘civilized’ world. Despite the obvious influence (and indeed nature) of history and memory in her books, Ernaux does not like to be considered a memoirist or have her work referred to as autobiography.
