araya giren iki dünya savaşı, değişen toplumsal ihtiyaçlar, bakkalların yerini alan süpermarketler, toprak zeminli müstakil evlerin yerini alan toplu konutlar… 70 sayfada daha ne anlatılabilir bilmiyorum. The real personal experiences of life can’t be conveyed through language as words get falter when pushed to their very limits, so in a way language was the inadequacy of Ernaux like her father.

Annie Ernaux’s father died exactly two months after she passed her exams for a teaching certificate. Annie Ernaux chose literature to explore her ambivalent feelings towards her father and her background.The big change post-war is that intelligent people from lower social classes had more opportunities than they would have had in the previous generation. Though his father had been a countryman at heart with his life completely different to that of her daughter but eventually he found satisfaction in the fact that despite his own limitations ( one day he said: ‘Books and music are all right for you.

His lack of proper education affected his confidence and caused a lot of friction in his relationship with his daughter (author). Sadly the link doesn't take you to the thesis itself, but I'm keen to track it down as she references another author who is new to me: Daniel Pennac . The author emphasises at every turn her father's keen sense of his own inferiority and his constant, secret fear that his speech, his writing, his clothes or his manners would disgrace him, and her, in the eyes of those he believed to be his superiors. So this is a book about class, an “ordinary” lived life, not a biography, exactly, as it is about 100 pages.Annie Ernaux's father died exactly two months after she passed her exams for a teaching certificate.

What is hard is to move into intellectual/cultured circles when you don’t come from the same background. But there are some memories which we consciously keep suppressed through our life, perhaps because of some fear, or shame, these memories, which have been suppressed for long, strive to come out, to be expressed so that one could make peace with them. I waited there until they came to fetch me for my practical, which involved giving a lesson in front of an inspector and two assessors, both distinguished lecturers in French. Although I’m a lousy photographer and my pictures have no monetary value, I’d appreciate that you ask permission before downloading the photos I insert in my posts. Barely educated and valued since childhood strictly for his labour, Ernaux's father had grown into a hard, practical man who showed his family little affection.

L'autrice ha insegnato e conosce il potere del giudizio e il discrimine minore che traccia nella coscienza. seneler’de de söylemiştim, her ne kadar ernaux’nun bahsettiği dönemle aramızda en az bi 35-40 yıl olsa da, yaşadığımız ülkelerin gelişmişlik düzeyi farkı ile aramızdaki zaman boşluğu kapanıyor. Ipak, ono što oboje uspeju da izvuku iz nerečja je ne samo krajnje upečatljivo već i događaj po sebi. No conseguía concentrarme en la lectura, al llegar a alguna página de ese libro mi padre ya no viviría. Il a toujours appelé ainsi le travail de la terre, l’autre sens de culture, le spirituel, lui était inutile.

Narrating his slow ascent towards material comfort, Ernaux’s cold observation in A Man’s Place reveals the shame that haunted her father throughout his life.If on the other hand I indulge in personal reminiscence, I remember him as he was, with his way of laughing and walking, taking me by the hand to the funfair. Bambaşka bir coğrafyada, bambaşka bir kültürde babasıyla ülkemizdekine benzer şekilde ilişkilenmiş / ilişkilenememiş birileri olduğunu okumak da ayrıca çok acayipti. I think there was quite a lot of this kind of social dislocation when postwar reforms gave educational opportunities to people who had never had them before. Rather than picking up traditional realism in the style of Balzac or Flaubert, she elects for a sparse, factual prose, albeit one dealing with an intensely personal topic … she sifts through the soil of her roots. You can see her reaching forth, attempting to draw connection from her early childhood memories, attempting to infuse images with feelings.
