    1 thought on “The Same Sea as Every Summer

    1. Historia de un amor rebelde, que describe exquisitamente el amor sensitivo, el de las sacudidas de placer, y la entrega total al erotismo con un lenguaje metafórico, argumentos que permiten estudiar el cosmos con visión femenina.La protagonista, profesora, mantiene una relación amorosa durante unas pocas semanas con una alumna, Clara. Este amor se demuestra ilusorio, casi tanto como la enorme cantidad de cuentos infantiles a los que hace referencia, porque la mujer prefiere la realidad en la [...]

    2. Esther Tusquets first came to light in the heady post-Franco years. As Spain finally emerged from out of the shadow of its late dictator, the floodgates were opened and a spirit of cultural glasnost prevailed. El mismo mar de todos los veranos, first published in 1978, was emblematic of this new era, as its poetic exploration of lesbian sexuality pushed the envelope far beyond anything that would have been remotely permitted under Franco's regime.Though powerfully sensual, The Same Sea as Every [...]

    3. Novela sumamente pedante y, en consecuencia, tediosa. El mismo mar de todos los veranos divaga en alusiones cultas a personajes mitológicos, bíblicos o medievales, que no es que esté mal per se, pero se siente como si la narradora dijera "Soy culta, muy culta, y para demostrarlo vomitaré todo todito todo lo que sé para hacer del mío un libro culto e incomprensible lleno de simbolismos y metatextualidades, para que así en un futuro me estudien y hagan tesis doctorales sobre la intertextual [...]

    4. Una docente e una studentessa, la Spagna post-franchista, monologhi interiori e soliloqui condivisi, loro due "pubblico e spettacolo". E lo stesso mare di ogni estate. Decostruzione, promesse e destituzione finale dell’identità (e della coscienza che smette di fluire): “porque ha tenido siempre el éxito un precio exorbitante y loco o porque nos ha sido regalado por nada y no vale en consecuencia nada”. Questo accade per la signora. Della ragazza non abbiamo più saputo nulla. Il che ci f [...]

    5. One review I read said it bogs down in the middle -- "a rather common development in the Spanish feminist novel of the late '70s and early '80s.". Hmm. I must admit, though, every Spanish feminist novel of the late '70s and early '80s that I've ever read has sounded exactly like this book.

    6. "y Wendy creció".No basta con leer a Esther Tusquets en "El mismo mar de todos los veranos". No basta con intentar entender al monstruo que dormita bajo las páginas —sus sábanas— de la novela. Se merece mucho más que eso, una profunda reflexión, un detenerse un momento, una larga mirada al techo o al cielo. Un viaje en el tiempo."El mismo mar de todos los veranos" es, al mismo tiempo, homenaje a la infancia perdida, aceptación amarga de la conciencia mortal, hastío familiar y discurso [...]

    7. This was a beautifully written book. I read the version that was translated into English and was often simply awestruck by the way Tusquets touches all five senses with her writing; I could see, hear, smell, taste everything she described and with an intensity that gave me chills. I wondered what the Spanish version was like given the vivid, descriptive language in the English version.I felt like I was reading someone's journal when I started reading this book. It's written in a stream of consci [...]

    8. Me gusta la escrita clara; la narración directa. Los floridos y el abuso de metáforas me hastían. Por eso resulta extraño que, en últimas, este libro me haya gustado: está saturado de metáforas y la narrativa es laberíntica, "recobecuda" si tal palabra existiese. Pero, en el fondo, tiene ritmo y una vez agarrado, agrada.Llegué a él porque gusté de " y habíamos ganado la guerra" de la misma autora, pero me encontré con un libro totalmente diferente. Encontré exagerada (en sus sentim [...]

    9. Language is a skinMy language trembles with desire (Barthes, 1990)This novel is about desire, with a strong undercurrent of pscyhoanalysis running through its veins. The plot itself is simple yet the expressiveness of the narrator opens up a world of fears, insecurities, and most of all desires for the reader. What fuels our desire? What hinders it? Ultimately, how do certain events in our life change our paths of desire and attainment of that which we desire? All valid questions this novel forc [...]

    10. Me costó encontrarle el punto a esta novela, las primeras páginas me parecieron tan sumamente complicadas Esos monólogs que tiene la protagonista, que empiezan en una página y termina dos más tarde, esas referencias a la Mitología (Teseo, Ariadna, el Minotauro, Noxos, y más), ni un solo diálogo No estoy acostumbrada a este tipo de literatura, necesita una concentración enorme (por lo menos en mi caso) pero me ha gustado e intentaré leer más de esta autora, y de su estilo en el futuro. [...]

    11. I really want to say why I like this but I keep finding that it's more due to a feeling that I've been left with as opposed to one or more elements in the actual book. I suppose it's like a fairy tale in that respect, where it's just the simplicity and dream-like quality of the story that makes it stay with you.

    12. Highly recommended. A very interesting point of view on a woman who is trying to find a different kind of life than the one she has inherited from a wealthy and traditional catalonian family.
