Summary La petite fille ui aimait trop les allumettes La petite fille ui aimait trop les allumettes Review · PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Gaétan Soucy Alone with their authoritarian father on a vast estate where time has stopped two siblings speak a language and inhabit a surreal universe of their own making shaped by their reading of philosophy and tales of chivalry When Wow I hardly know what to say after having finished this book I am shaken Reading this book was sort of like having bandages removed from your eyes layer by layer Things become lighter and lighter clearer and clearer and you are excited by the anticipation of the possibilities of the world you will behold once your vision is completely unobstructed And then the picture begins to emerge and there you are drowning in burning blinding light raw and unprotected Part of you wishes you could unread what you have read unknow what you now know and go back to letting the flitting beauty of the skillfully naive language wash over you unenlightened My feet move lightly following the example of the birds that take their flight around my body that are the colour of my eyes for all the birds waltz with me that s my secret even those at the other end of the earth I ve often dreamed of being able to dance on the summits of pine trees the way elves do as warm and light as candle flames sheaves of powdered gold would tumble from my hands to spangle the countryside with starsThe hidden brutality of this book is what makes it so incredible It begins with this Wittgenstein uote The experience of feeling pain is not that a person I has something I distinguish an intensity a location etc in the pain but not an owner What sort of a thing would a pain be that no one has Pain belonging to no one at all Pain is represented as something we can perceive in the sense in which we perceive a matchbox And I guess in a sense it ends with it tooI think it is probably an incredible feat of translation My edition was translated by Sheila Fischman in 2000 The language is so dense and relies heavily on wordplay which comes off perfectly in English All of the puns in the original French must be completely different It would be interesting to compare them

Summary La petite fille ui aimait trop les allumettes La petite fille ui aimait trop les allumettes Review · PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Gaétan Soucy Brilliant masterful story in which nothing is as it first seems The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches is a triumph of suspense linguistic invention and playfulness that peers into the heart of guilt cruelty and violenc This is much better appreciated if you can forget or ignore any detailed reviews If you manage to trying to figure out what is going on becomes like solving a cryptic crossword and piecing together the various clues Living alone with their authoritarian father on a vast estate surrounded by forest a pair of siblings speak a language and inhabit a world of their own invention When their father commits suicide they are forced into contact with the nearby villagers and gradually the startling truth reveals itself Soucy s writing balances naivet with the grotesue and debauched and creates a gripping story where nothing is as it first seems The reader is left to decipher what initially feels like a fairy tale but it s not long into it until the horror emerges His fascination with guilt cruelty and violence are perversely compelling to discover the truth behind all the secrets and distortions It s a piece of writing like no otherAnd a word for the translator Sheila Fischman as this is a piece of translating like no other also
