El diablo en el cuerpo by Raymond Radiguet (5 star ratings)

As a result, his sudden death seems all the more unjust. There must exist in us seeds of resemblance that are germinated by love. This edition also has a foreward which added further information about Radigeut’s short life, and the impression this story had on early 20th century France, and the impact it still has today.

Which amounts to saying I still loved her. Through seeing it so often, they cease to see it at all. A man who had been near to death thinks how he knows death. Writers experiment with life and words and this, in turn, shape what they write and those writers who follow in their train. In reaction to this death Francis Poulenc wrote, “For two days I was unable to do anything, I was so stunned” Ivry Just when you think you’ve heard every profound thing that could be said about love, this one offers some that I hadn’t quite read stated in this way before.

It is no wonder why this book caused such a stir in its time in France — and had even been banned — though one wonders at least how Raymond could have possibly matured as a writer had he not died of Typhoid at 20 years of age. Je n’ai pas du tout compris le titre. Needless to say, read this. Marta soon finds herself again, while Jacques, who has become her husband, set out to fight.

This was the schoolboy in me: Thank god I’ve read this as a twenty-five year old and not as a teenager–I have a feeling I would have been so distracted with a burning envy of Radiguet’s precocious prose that my younger self would have missed how deeply felt this novel is in its elegant austerity.

Between her and the young boy is born a love, total on the part of Marthe, semi-cynical, semi-sincere on the part of the narrator. Exceedingly sophisticated material written in the tone of a mature narrator looking back on the dramatic and often terrible behavior of his youth — which is amazing, when you consider that this novel was written by a youth.

Marthe announces to her young lover that she expects a child; a child of him, the adolescent of sixteen years.

El diablo en el cuerpo / The body devil : Raymond Radiguet :

As it was written sl a teenager, it has a very authentic teenage voice – a rare Picking up this book, I was not expecting much. This masterpiece was written by an year old in and Raymond Radiguet died in having left the swine of posterity a literary pearl of high price.

The virus of non-conformity is spread through language.

OK, tout va bien. Again, Radiguet impresses me because he dared at 14 to have an affair with an older woman.

Any vestige of scandal disappeared from contemporary judgments so as not to leave a single place of admiration. Yukio Mishima, I read, was influenced a lot by this teenagers work. No one learns anything; no one atones. The illicit love is mutual but given the nature of adultery and the illicit nature of the relationship, the tale must end tragically, with the death of Marthe. A sexual coming-of-age novel told in the first person, it has the limited scope but almost unbearable emotional density of the adolescent perspective as the protagonist discovers–as if for the first time ever–what it is to love, to have sex, to experience what seems to be the extreme injustice of fate oh, those teenage years In some way, this confliction stopped me having sentimental feelings towards the characters, which then strangely made me see the novel through a more cold-hearted reading, thus finding more of a connection with the Francois and his cold, analytical, mindframe.


It is his mistress who benefits from this accumulation. Critics, who initially despised the intense publicity campaign for the book’s release something not normally associated with works of literary merit at the timewere finally won over by the quality of Radiguet’s writing and his sober, objective style. Through thinking of Marthe so much, I thought of her less and less.

Radiguet captures teenage infatuation like no other author I have read. I found Radiguet more devilish, subtle, incisive and extremely insightful, perfect for my ripe old age.

Now that I was sure I no longer loved her, I was beginning to do so. He torments her physically and mentally partly e, of his own feelings of doubt and ambivalence.

Et soyons franc, c’est chaotique. Naturally I had no wish to cause my father distress; yet I desired the very thing that would distress him most. Of course, all tragedies of this kind arise from fleshly passions, rationalized and indulged in via literary influences.
