Wow This was really good.
The start was slow and contemplative, but then all of the doom started rushing in It made my heart hurt I loved the non typical, non romantic setting of Northern industrial Spain All the characters say repeatedly how ugly it is, how dirty, without charm.
I loved the supporting characters, the phlegmatic and understanding Don Pablo why isn t he my friend, my father , the cerebral uncanny Milagros, the bitter circle of other Irish misses , and the bitter unbending Conlan And I loved how she said that being Juanito s lover would ruin her, would ruin him, and then she did it anyway No, not did admitted Like some things are so true that they have to be admitted into existence, even though you know how there will never be any going back, though you know it s going to break your heart in two still it must exist.

5Indagando nella complessa psicologia di Mary Lavelle, l autrice dipinge il nitido ritratto di una donna coraggiosa la cui anima sensibile divisa tra un a impossibile e la sua forte coscienza cattolica.
Intenso, passionale, tuttavia con qualche alto e basso sulla narrazione che rallenta il coinvolgimento iniziale Mary sal la scala per andare al piano di sopra Ma fatti cinque o sei gradini si volt Anche Juanito, accanto alla porta del salone, si era fermato a guardarla, prima di seguire il padre nella stanza Il sole del tramonto, riversandosi dalla finestra del pianerottolo, illumin entrambi con dolcezza, avvolgendoli in un alone fatale.

I picked up this book despite its unattractive cover because it was a Virago Classic Mary Lavelle goes to Spain to be the companion of three young Spanish girls and to help them improve their English Ireland evidently has been supplying young women with no other prospects to serve in this capacity to wealthy Spanish families Mary doesn t quite fit the profile because she is stunningly beautiful and is also engaged to be married For her, this is a last fling before settling down.
Everyone loves Mary, even the mother, though she is somewhat wary of Mary s beauty, knowing of the natural amorousness of Spanish men Not only is Mary a well brought up young Catholic woman with a sweet disposition, she also begins to genuinely like Spain and its people She even begins to see the beauty in a bull fight The other Misses , as Mary and her ilk were called, mostly didn t bother learning Spanish and were not as appreciative of the Spanish culture as was Mary.
When Mary falls for the married son of the family employing her, she first tries to talk herself out of it Then she does everything she can to keep her distance from him I have no trouble believing that two people can be strongly drawn to each other to the point of infatuation And the two lovers were quite heroic in their struggle to not betray their commitments to others But I guess I didn t rate it any higher because I couldn t totally connect with Mary I kept turning back to the cover and wondering whose measure of beauty was displayed there I loved her going away gift at the end, though.
This is a wonderful bildungsroman about a young Irish woman who goes to Spain as a governess, and to get away for a time from her home and her stolid Irish fiance She wants to learn about the world, and works for a Spanish grandee family The family s fathter is an aging liberal, and his son Juanito is also concerned with the reform of Spanish politics His son is married, with a young child, and falls in love with Mary Una storia d a e di vita appassionante in una Spagna assolata e densa di umori, bellezza, convenzioni e trasgressioni.
You know one of the things I really like about this book Conlan does not jump off a bridge, or otherwise perish horribly.
I seem to be one of the few men to have read this book, at least by the evidence of the reviews on Goodreads This book was apparently banned in the thirties in Ireland when it came out, and it is only in the second half that you discover why It is quite daring for an Irish novel published in 1936, with adultery and open discussion about same sex attraction I like you the way a man likes you I enjoyed the novel much than I was expecting Mary Lavelle, a middle class Irish woman in her early twenties goes to the Spanish Basque country to work as a governess for a year She is engaged to be married back in Ireland to John, solid but dull and not very enlightened The strengths of the novel lie in two areas The first is the description of Mary s rapid fascination with Spain, with the people, the bullfights which repel and intrigue her , the language, the landscape The second is the portrait of the world of the misses the community of Irish governesses that are charged with educating the youth of the Basque upper class They all refer to each other by their surnames O Toole, Conlan, Lavelle, etc, and nearly all of them are snobby, whinging, contemptuous of their adopted country, incapable for one reason or another of going home It is an intriguing perspective on a little known community.
Mary discovers passion there in Spain, and in four short months the impression is that she has learned and developed than in her whole life in Ireland The book is a kind of love letter to Spain, a wistful, affectionate, at times intense portrait of a young woman who is opened up by living in another place, in another milieu The writing is intense and precise and full of detailed descriptions of characters, emotions and places, though it never gets top heavy The best thing I can say is that I would certainly read Kate O Brien again.
