SUMMARY Written on the Body REVIEW ò Written on the Body Jeanette Winterson ✓ 1 REVIEW Hronicles the consuming affair between the narrator who is given neither name nor gender and the beloved a co It is hard to review Jeanette Winterson Every single one of her short novels is a work of art beautiful and painfully true while magically exploring the limits of realityI read The Passion and thought I would not like it because I don t do historical fiction It was breath taking unbelievable eye opening The recurring theme accompanies me ever since Somewhere between fear and sex passion isI read Sexing the Cherry and thought I could not possibly like it because The Passion made such an impression on me and I was blown away Pure magic To evaluate the other novels by her I have read I have to reread them because the language and the plot are always so carefully interlinked it is hard to explain the massive effect of her words from memory This weekend I started the process with Written On The Body which I remembered only vaguely thinking I had liked it despite not being fond of love stories And I swear the book now is tattooed written into my soul Picking up the recurring themes of desire passion and deceit it explores the nature of love against all odds against rational thinking against one s own bodyThe main idea is to describe the complete surrender a person experiences when he or she loves unconditionally and how that leaves traces not only on the soul but on the body itself The intensity of the feeling is engraved on the bodyIt is shockingly honest in its approach to adultery deceit and the randomness of love Love is all consuming but rarely something purely beautiful Its start can be a banality the door to love opened by accident Her butler opened it for her His name was Boredom She said Boredom fetch me a plaything He said Very good ma am and putting on his white gloves so that fingerprints would not show he tapped at my heart and I thought he said his name was Love As always Winterson mixes deep feelings with sarcastic comical effectsIt would have been good to have lain down there and made love under the moon but the truth is that outside of the movies and the Country and Western songs the outdoors is an itchy businessThe nameless main character plays many different relationship roles over the course of the story The adventurous affair the unhappy love the comfortable stable partnershipI was rigorous hard working and and what was that word with B againYou re bored my friend saidI protested with all the fervour of a teetotaller caught glancing at the bottle I was content I had settledAnd then the big LOVE strikes the one that goes straight through the body and soul and leaves the character marked for life literally No rational thinking helpsWisdom says forget The body howlsIn the end there is something like a happy ending a beginning as well a couple of human beings let loose in the open fieldsThis is a Winterson through and through every word weighing heavily every emotion raw Read it if you can bear to have the pain of love written on your body

SUMMARY Written on the Body REVIEW ò Written on the Body Jeanette Winterson ✓ 1 REVIEW The most beguilingly seductive novel to date from the author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry Winterson c The pads of your fingers have become printing blocks you tap a message on to my skin tap meaning into my body Your morse code interferes with my heart beat I had a steady heart before I met you I relied upon it it had seen active service and grown strong Now you alter its pace with your own rhythm you play upon me drumming me taut I got completely lost in this book in a good way I was wholly wrapped up in the writing basking in the beauty of the prose I ve not read a lot of Jeanette Winterson yet but what I know so far is that she is like a composer of music Her words are a song that serenades the listener this novel an exuisite ballad When the breathless hush blankets the crowd after the conclusion of the piece my greatest desire is to experience it all over again I ve tried to get you out of my head but I can t seem to get you out of my flesh I think about your body day and night When I try to read it s you I m reading When I sit down to eat it s you I m eating When he touches me I think about you The skin of this story is an affair between a married woman and a narrator whose gender remains unnamed throughout The flesh is the grand passion between these two the sensuality of two bodies joined together At the pit or core you will find unconditional selfless love I don t want to be your sport nor you to be mine I don t want to punch you for the pleasure of it tangling the clear lines that bind us forcing you to your knees dragging you up again The public face of a life in chaos I want the hoop around our hearts to be a guide not a terror The middle section reads like a poem about the various landscapes of a lover s body The beautiful verses still resound in my head I was ready to forgive Winterson for overlooking a plot to her novel until I realized there in fact was one Beneath all that seductive style a story is revealed It shook me up and then crushed me I loved it Many waters cannot uench love neither can floods drown it What then kills love Only this Neglect Not to see you when you stand before me Not to think of you in the little things Not to make the road wide for you the table spread for you To choose you out of habit not desire to pass the flower seller without a thought
