As if the physical passions are almost to die of, but not in a beautiful way, but in a way that almost causes thoughts of real disgust. The book is about being in control of your own life, and being liberated from childhood in the sense of knowledge and being able to make your own decisions.

Duras also claimed to have been beaten by her mother and her older brother. Since the story jumps around in time, I ended up pretty confused. And I really wanted to like this book. Financial struggles, sexuality and her relationship with her mother playing big roles in the book.

As I read, however, I felt these emotions only minimally, if it all.

Marguerite duras biography

Her father became ill and returned to France for treatment; he died in France shortly thereafter. Is he her son or truly her younger brother? In my opinion, the story is not cohesive enough to be a novel either. Poor child. One day, I was already old, in the entrance of a public place a man came up to me. Another interesting thing is the way she keeps death and sex, pleasure and the grotesque so close to each other. Which gives us a feeling of the forbidden love, even more so than the age difference. As if the physical passions are almost to die of, but not in a beautiful way, but in a way that almost causes thoughts of real disgust. The one area in which The Lover unequivocally shines is the relationship between Duras and her lover. I connected with Duras best when she described the fragility of first love. Duras also claimed to have been beaten by her mother and her older brother.
