Margaret Atwood ↠ 7 read Alias Grace characters Ñ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Propensa a vedere in lei ora una santa ora una carnefice la protagonista di uesto romanzo può finalmente raccontare la propria vita al giovane dottore Simon Jordan Convinto di mettere le proprie conoscenze al servizio della verità sul caso e al tempo stesso contribuire al progresso della scienza psicologica Jordan non potrà fare a meno di restare ammalia. and the real curse of Eve was having to put up with the nonsense of Adam who as soon as there was any trouble blamed it all on her Grace is a murderess She collaborated with her coworker to kill their master and his mistress So the people say So the people want to believe Because let s face it where s the fascination in a murder committed only by a man There s no sensation nothing to stir the crowds Whereas a woman who took a life Well there s the spectacle Never mind that she may be innocent This is a perfect chance to humiliate women to place the blame on them and continue the tradition that started at the beginning of timeBut Grace knows the truth Or does sheMargaret Atwood takes the story of one of the most famous female prisoners of the 19th century and weaves a masterpiece of a novel Set in the 1840s in Canada and spanning almost 30 years this is a confession and a fascinating journey to the mind and the life of a woman who has much to say and even to hide Is she a criminal An innocent bystander A cold blooded killer Is she a victim of her weak will A small animal captured in a man s well constructed trap And does anyone want to actually listen to her When a young psychiatrist decides to dive into the darkest part of Grace s mind everything will changeThis is a novel that I consider perfect on every level I ve always believed that the finest writers can give us the conclusion at the beginning of the story and we ll still be interested and invested in the development of the action This is exactly what happens here While Atwood doesn t reveal everything at once we have all the proper materials to guess the end and there is still much space for suspense agony and speaking strictly for me anger Anger was the feeling that became my loyal companion while I was reading Anger because of the double standards of the time the conviction that a woman is guilty by definition when accused the habit of regarding women as objects for the men s pleasure ripe for the takingAnd if we come to think of it these notions are still alive today in our so called advanced era when many believe that gender euality is all done and dealt with and achieved No when I feel frightened each time I walk down a darkly lit alley each time a man sideglances at me gender euality doesn t exist Forgive me if I digress but fury comes swiftly when I think that in many parts of our planet tyranny and violence against women are considered the norm they are alive and kicking and they will never stop And where do most of these false notions come from Prejudice superstition religious fundamentalism and the people there love to fall down in fits and talk in tongues and be saved once a summer or if available Jeremiah one of the most enigmatic characters of the story provides an excellent and extremely accurate description of the absurd religious panic that inflicts people of every race and every religion The pious God fearing citizens look upon men to save them and are all too willing to believe in the condemnation of women What I enjoyed in the way this theme is delivered in Alias Grace is that Atwood inserts the influence of such stereotypes in the field of Science as well Educated men aren t immune to prejudice and they attempt to research Grace s case with preconceived notions in their heads Enter Simon the young psychiatrist who tries a different approach to understand the incidents and the tribulations inside Grace s soul In the process he finds much than he expected I loved the way Atwood uses the newly born ideas of Mesmerism and Magnetism and the rising of Spiritualism that became in vogue a few years later In addition she addresses the issue of Hysteria the common belief that all women were prone to uncontrollable violent fits of rage another token of a society that refused to believe that women are actual human beings with the right to seek sexual pleasure and fulfillment God forbid these are principles solely belonging to menIt s hard not to get political when it comes to Atwood s brilliant novels Grace s background is a highly troubled one She comes from Ulster an extremely tormented area and becomes an immigrant to escape a country that is dying from famine and oppression Further Canada is still shaking from the 1837 uprising and the aristocracy has become even intolerant and cruel to those that are considered low and uneducated heathens In this historical and political context we can understand how crucial are the themes Atwood addresses and how relevant they are especially now The gap between the wealthy and the poor the discriminations against women the blind faithGrace is a complex intriguing character In my opinion she retains characteristics of the Unreliable Narrator because are we actually certain that her views on events and people are accurate She comes across as a very sympathetic level headed brave considerate dignified woman She s not afraid to express mistrust or uncertainty and has the self discipline to keep her most controversial thoughts secret until the opportune moment Atwood takes us into Grace s mind before she speaks and succeeds in creating a complete picture of our heroine However there is still an aura of mystery surrounding her and a strange underlying sensuality and dark innocenceApart from Grace we have two male characters that are eually interesting and mysterious Simon and Jeremiah Simon is very complex in my opinion Very real and perplexing He is not free from his own demons he has some fairly obscure ideas about sexual pleasure but he desires progress and knowledge He has travelled extensively and believes he has all the necessary means to tackle Grace s strange case However he isn t prepared enough for what is about to come Simon gave me much trouble as I was trying to understand him and realise his motives He is mysterious and there is definitely a darkness inside him so he is an excellent counterpart of Grace Jeremiah is a walking riddle A man of the world a magnetic presence an enigma This review may come across as passionate or even politically incorrect but when books make you feel so many powerful emotions after reading a few chapters you know they have succeeded When the author is Margaret Atwood you know you are in the safest hands possible This is a classic a novel that should definitely be included in the finest of the 20th century Oh and certain misogyniststrollspseudo scholars that have been lurking on GR lately better stay away from Atwood s novels like The Handmaid s Tale or Alias Grace They will prove bad for you sensitive moral values and blood pressure What is believed in society is not always the euivalent of what is true but as regards to a woman s reputation it amounts to the same thing My reviews can also be found on
