review The French Lieutenant's Woman

The French Lieutenant's Woman review ¶ 3 John Fowles á 3 free read The scene is the village of Lyme Regis on Dorset's Lyme Baythe largest bite from the underside of England's out stretched southwestern leg The major characters in the love intrigue triangle are Charles Smithson 32 a gentleman of independent means vaguely scientific bent. I think the greatest strength of this book is the utter uniueness of it I don t think I ve ever read a book like it It is set in the Victorian year of 1867 and yet the sensibility of the book is thoroughly grounded in the 1960s when it was written The language metaphors and focus of the book all come from the 1960s and the actions of the characters are all given the lens of the highly visible author who is in fact one of the major characters of the book much in the style of Thackeray though personally done here I thinkThe plot itself starts off as a flimsy Victorian melodrama if one were to remove everything but the bare skeletons of the action from it boy meets girl boy is engaged to girl boy meets mysterious amazing girl boy suffers crisis of love moral dilemmas abound and then it develops into something else much modern with modern situations and dilemmas But it is how it is described that is the best p art of the book the focus is on the philosophies the problems the context of the era Fowles is deeply involved in trying to explain the actions of his characters with pages long meditations and research into the Victorian pysche based on thinkers papers popular opinions and events of the era For example the main character Charles is an amateur scientist and is a very strong Darwinist Fowles gets involved with class issues capitalist society poetry the suffrage movement feminism and of course the overarching focus of the book sexuality and its repression and unrepressionIt is here that comes my only real criticism of the book that at times the book is very dated to the 1960s in its utter obsession with sex and bohemia and fuck the system kind of rhetoric Which still rings with many today so perhaps it isn t a problem for all I just found it sort of threw me out of the magic of the story when he tried to make his characters 1960s type heroesAnother large and fascinating part of the book is that John Fowles allows us to see him at work He shows us the road not taken in statements like but much elouently put than this Well I could do this but that would betray the character but it is the formula where shall I go from here He lets the reader see behind the curtain and see his process lets them know that he recognizes what he is doing and what he could have done or should have done by convention He muses on what the character might want or what he might want and the various conventions that an author has at his disposal to most effectively display what he wants to convey I did not think that it threw me out of the book at all It made it even interesting actually I d recommend this book for even people who don t usually like Victorian literature It has so modern a voice and discusses so many issues that we find of relevance today that perhaps your eyerolling can be kept to a minimum

Like times like manners And the times were puritanicalThe copulatory theme was repeated in various folio prints in gilt frames that hung between the curtained windows Already a loose haired girl in Camargo petticoats was serving the waiting gentlemen with Roederer s champagne In the background a much rouged but seemingly dressed lady of some fifty years of age cast a uiet eye over her clienteleJohn Fowles recreates the atmosphere of the Victorian era with an enviable thoroughness and he never fails to be rich in intriguing details So The French Lieutenant s Woman rightfully remains one of the great milestones in literatureBut there is also a kind of the warning against gullibilityWe can sometimes recognize the looks of a century ago on a modern face but never those of a century to come On comparing the past with the present one inevitably corrupts the past with one s modern attitude

Here the sheer power of the Victorian novel exploded revamped John Fowles invites you into an experiment he is conducting himself stick with it you must the great puppeteer takes a story 100 years old writes his characters and HIMSELF into the plot right smack in the middle of Darwinian enlightenment and the empty floral vase that is Victorian Europe So much to witness in this enjoyable metaphysical rompLike for instance the satellite characters Yeah I began a crush on Sam our protagonist s manservant Why He looks at his master with eyes that take it all in not in lust but in victory His destiny to me seemed free and beautiful than our agonizing malcontent I was cognizant of this before it manifested on the page There are breaks in tradition galore Yes the French Lieutenant s woman is the main character no she is not followed with that straight fidelity one gives their literary objects of affection Where else can you find historical anecdotes and footnotes so resplendent in their use but in metalit There is a deep mourning for the loss of individuality felt by the characters that s the true main theme the tension between lust and renunciation 216 Ah the naked female wristThe work is invigorating suffused by the modern master s touch He breaks the armor plates set up by the Wuthering Heights of yesteryear by the demonic texts of Hawthorne the book seeks an ending like the reader seeks it There is parallelism in the experimen in the discovery The enjoyable journey seems to be set for us both the reader and the writer alike
