    1 thought on “Thérèse Desqueyroux”

    1. In this brief novel boiling with tension, we see the inner conflicts of the type in Madam Bovary or Anna Karenina, but a lot more compressed and intense. Usually, I don’t like dark novels of this type, but what kept me hooked is the powerful story-telling of Mauriac, an absolute masterpiece. A deeply flawed character, Therese, keeps us engaged, because Mauriac has skillfully transferred her point of view upon us, so we are with her even if we know she is doing something unethical.

    2. I know nothing of love save that it is the constant object of my desire, a desire that possesses me and blinds me, setting my feet on the ways of the waste land, dashing me against the walls, forcing me into bogs and quagmires, stretching me exhausted in the muddy ditches of life.Run away, Thérèse. The trees where she suffered alone moan that is human. She's not alone. Mauriac is right that it is a huge family, the unresting, and a recognition would burn like an outbreak of forest fire. I don' [...]

    3. "Ela não compreenderia que eu só me interesso por mim mesma, que estou inteiramente ocupada comigo. Anne, pelo seu lado, está só à espera de ter filhos para se anular neles, como fez a mãe, como fazem todas as mulheres da família. A minha preocupação é descobrir-me, esforço-me por me encontrar Ao primeiro vagido do fedelho que este anão lhe fará, sem despir sequer a jaqueta, Anne esquecerá a sua adolescência junto de mim e as carícias de Jean Azevedo. As mulheres da família aspi [...]

    4. There is a new movie version of this book but I always want to read the book first. A gift from my brother.This novel is based on a true story when in May 1905 (thanks Wayne for your important remark about it!), the author attended the trial of the poisoner Mrs. Canaby: L’affaire des Chartrons.Therese, as well as Madame Bovary in some way, lives in her own world since her husband is not able to understand her feelings. Even with the birth of their daughter, their faith won't change any more.Th [...]

    5. "One can make the most contrary judgements about the same person, and yet be right- that it is all a question of the way the light falls and that no one form of light is more revealing than another."This novel may be a foreign country to a male reader (despite the fact it was written by a man!) because it describes the servitude of women who, throughout history, have ached and desired and cried in silence for freedom. I, as a fellow woman, pity Theresa when she attempts to poison her husband by [...]

    6. Compassionate disgust. That’s how I’d sum up Mauriac’s view of humanity, or rather not of humanity but of the flesh of which humanity is composed. But this “flesh” extends beyond the actual flesh into all the background, all the buried impulses and motivations that lurk within our lives, leading our flesh into situations and traps, leaving it stranded and suffering and vying for an out, or at least a moment of tainted pleasure. The receptacle for this compassionate disgust in this volu [...]

    7. (ambiguo) profilo di donnaC’è chi si assoggetta (più o meno volentieri, più o meno consapevolmente) alle regole del vivere comune, al formalismo, al perbenismo di facciata o, perché no, alla moda del momento.C’è chi, invece, non vi si vuole assoggettare.Ma c’è anche chi – per temperamento, carattere, indole, natura – non vi si può assoggettare. E’ qui che sta il vero dramma.”Come spiegarle? Non capirebbe che io sono colma di me stessa, che mi occupo interamente. Anne aspetta [...]

    8. «زندگی حتی اگر سراپا به گناه آلوده باشد، باز هم عظمت وجود انسان را ضایع نمی کند کسانی که ظاهراً محکوم به بدی شده اند، شاید خداوند قبل از دیگران آنها را برگزیند و عمق سقوط آنان، درجه شایستگی و هدایت آنهاست.»فرانسوا موریاک باید اضافه کنم که فیلم فرانسوی ترز دکرو با اقتباس از این [...]

    9. François Mauriac begins Thérèse Desqueyroux with her criminal case being dismissed. Accused of poisoning her husband, Thérèse, is acquitted by Bernard’s own felonious testimony only to become victim herself of a virtual house arrest as much for propriety’s sake as punitive vengeance. The family has closed ranks to hide the dirty secret of her guilt, determined Thérèse will remain captive in one room for the remainder of her life. And yet it’s Thérèse’s ambivalence about the crim [...]

    10. Notam-se ecos da tradição Faubertiana em Mauriac. Thérese D. pertence àquela categoria de livros grandes demais para o número de páginas que albergam. Deve-o à densidade da escrita e ao que se intui da mesma. Neste livro conhecemos a ilustre Thérese, logo à saída do julgamento onde foi absolvida pela tentativa de homicídio do marido, por envenenamento. Através de analepses descobrimos a sua personalidade e o seu móbil, compreendemos o seu crime, para no fim a julgar. Manteremos o ve [...]

    11. An indelible memory - I read this French classic a long time but have never forgotten it. Not sure if it's translated in English, but it certainly deserves to be discovered in this country. Mauriac is one of the great masters of the French language, and this novel is, deservedly so, one of his most famous and most celebrated. The title character, a murderess, is fascinating and her story is riveting. It's also a formidable portrait of French bourgeoisie.

    12. Having recently watched the 2012 film version of Francois Mauriac classic novel, I felt the need to go back to the original novel that I read decades ago when I was in my late teens. Reading Therese Desqueyroux with a twenty first century lens, I was fascinated by Mauriac's complex and multi-faceted presentation of her "case". Inspired by a "fait divers" concerning an actual court case that he read in his youth, Mauriac became deeply drawn to the young woman at the centre of it: what motivated h [...]

    13. The full title of this novel is actually Therese Desqueroux, and the inclusion of the protagonist's married surname is important to the theme. Francois Mauriac, who wrote most of his novels in the 1920s through the 1950s, is sometimes known as France's Catholic writer, but he was a rather uneasy Catholic who questioned orthodoxy and tended to write more sympathetically towards his characters who were in one kind or another of a personal or spiritual crisis. This 1926 novel asks the reader to con [...]

    14. An unforgettable portrayal of a complex,fascinating woman trapped by provincial life.Reminds me of Madam Bovary.They all know Therese is guilty but family honour means she walks free after being acquitted!But as she looks back towards the events that led to this she begins to wonder if her punishment has just begun.A brilliant novel with exquisite prose.Now to continue the story as I find there are three more stories that follow on from this.

    15. The two novellas, and two short stories, which follow Mauriac's most famous literary creation, Therese Desqueyroux, are set in Bordeaux and Paris. They chart her 'passionate, tortured life Her story, brilliantly and unforgettably told, affirms the beauty and vitality of the human spirit in "the eternal radiance of death"'. Of Mauriac's writing, Justin O'Brien tells the following in the New York Times: 'Both his subject and his style frequently recall Racine and Baudelaire; and indeed we often fe [...]

    16. Quando il cattolicesimo non è dogmaticoFrançois Mauriac è uno scrittore francese oggi forse un po' dimenticato. Eppure è stato, per un cinquantennio, un'epoca cruciale che va dagli anni '20 alla fine degli anni '60 del secolo scorso, uno degli intellettuali francesi più noti e influenti. Cattolico, unì all'impegno letterario quello civile: si schierò contro il franchismo in Spagna e la Repubblica di Vichy, e nel dopoguerra condannò il colonialismo francese e la repressione in Algeria. Ne [...]

    17. Ohhhhhhhhh my my my. What a hard book to read! So complex. Although I really love Therese but sometimes I couldn't connected to her in some ways. Her voice and mind are very complex to read of. This book was so intricate for me that I need to put it down and take a walk, play with cats after I read every 10 pages or so and then pick it up again. The plot was quite simple but the way it laid it out and connected it with a complex character mind and how she 'act and react' to it was quite amazing. [...]

    18. "Romance inspirado em factos de crónica que chocaram a sociedade da época e marcaram profundamente o autor, ao ponto de nunca mais abandonar a sua personagem, Thérèse Desqueyroux, por muitos apenas comparável a Madame Bovary, é considerada uma das obras mais significativas e intemporais da litetatura do século XX"Estes "factos de crónica que chocaram a sociedade da época" referem-se a um caso, que ocorreu na França, no qual uma mulher tentou envenenar o marido. E é a partir deste caso [...]

    19. une petite déception je dois l'avouer. Je trouve le récit tout d'abord assez daté dans son style. Deuxièmement, je considère la plume de Mauriac terriblement masculine. Je ne suis par partisane de la "gender literature" attention, néanmoins j'ai profondément ressenti le "genre" de l'auteur derrière ses écrits. Lorsque Mauriac expose les pensées profondes de Thérèse, à chaque fois, je me suis dit "voilà une remarque peu féminine". J'ai trouvé Thérèse peu attachante, je ne me sui [...]

    20. Nobel Prize ProjectYear: 1952Winner: François Mauriac Review: This volume consists of Mauriac's two novels about Thérèse, Thérèse Desqueyroux and The End of the Night, as well as two short stories about her life. Collectively the two novels, especially Thérèse Desqueyroux. The issue is that these novels mix together the traditional novel and traditional themes with hints of modernism in a way that makes it feel very dated. This has not aged well. I'm glad I read the books, because they ar [...]

    21. رغم أنها رواية صغيرة لكنها "رواية" وليست "نوفيلا"، برع بكتابتها فرانسوا مورياك بأسلوب روائي مبدع ومتقن ومتمكن من أدواته. "تيريز ديكيرو" رواية كتبها مورياك عام ١٩٢٧، تتحدث عن الفوارق العقلية بنفس مستوى الطبقة الإجتماعية. تيريز، تربت يتيمة الأم في كنف والدها العلماني الذي لا يك [...]

    22. This is without a doubt the masterpiece of Francois Mauriac, the Winner of the 1952 Nobel Prize Literature. It is the story of an arranged marriage involving the provincial nobility of France. Our heroine Therese finds her husband to be such an unspeakable bore that she attempts to get out of her marriage by attempting to poison him She administers a good number of doses of arsenic before the pharmacist turns her in. Her good-natured if boring husband agrees to grant her a divorce.The characteri [...]

    23. Sans trop dévoiler, je vais tout simplement dire que cette histoire est bien du Mauriac. On y rencontre ses personnages tourmentés, l’hypocrisie des familles, le climat lourd qui semble tout envelopper…L’écrivain tel un analyste des passions essai de jeter de la lumière sur le mal, son origine, son déclic, ses motivations, ses conséquences. Or est-il possible de fouiller si profondément dans les tréfonds de l’âme humaine? Une chose est claire : le mal, ou le péché, est un vrai [...]

    24. Amor não correspondido é tramado. O divórcio às vezes tornas as coisas mais fáceis mas naquela altura não se usava de todo. A Teresa é tramada e consegue levar a sua vontade avante. Teimosa e obstinada tem os seus recursos. Belo livro apesar de curto.

    25. After Mauriac had written the novella Thérèse Desqueyroux, about a woman in 1920s rural France who is acquitted of attempting to poison her husband, he kept writing. Over the next 10 years he wrote three additional sections that he would tack onto the novella; two very short ones, in which Thérèse has left her tiny hamlet and her infant daughter and husband and moved to Paris as a single woman, and a longer one, equal in length to the original novella, in which her heart ailment becomes incr [...]

    26. Inspired from his youth by the real-life case of Blanche Canaby, accused of the attempted murder of her husband, Mauriac developed the classic tale of Thérèse Desqueyroux, a character who fascinated him so much that she figures in two subsequent novels.In the opening chapter, the charge of poisoning her husband Bernard is dropped against Thérèse Desqueyroux, after he has lied to "get her off the hook" for the sake of appearances. The rest of this short novel is an exploration of why she comm [...]

    27. A fascinating novel in which an unhappy young wife tries to poison her husband, but for reasons that are not clear even to herself. Mauriac examines how even someone as intelligent and adept at self-examination as Thérèse can remain a mystery to herself. He also shows how such institutions as religion and the family can become stifling and even inhumane when charity is superseded by materialism and obsession with social (and political) correctness. Raymond Mackenzie's new translation is wonder [...]

    28. This book wasn't very easy to read in French, but it is certainly very well written. The style is very poetic, which contributes to the difficulty but also to the beauty of this book. The psychology of the different characters is deeply explored. As a result, I felt deeply for Thérèse, who suffers terribly. Mauriac depicts the emotions of the protagonist very well, which renders this novel really compelling.

    29. e livre étonnant nous plonge dans les tourments d'une femme de la bonne bourgeoisie du sud-ouest qui tente d'assassiner son mari. Tout le livre est une enquête pour connaître les motivations et fouiller l'âme de cette femme brillante mais aliénée. L'élégance de l'écriture offre un contraste saisissant avec la violence des sentiments et du propos. C'est vif, brillamment construit, fin : on ne décroche pas de ce court roman.
