Aug 31, Bertrand lse it liked it Shelves: For starters, the reader is quickly relieved to discover brxsillach the author has drastically reduced the insufferable lengths he had spent in the other two books setting the stage.
Second, there is a stylistic daring that seems quite unusual to Brasillach, allowing him to display his well honed writing skills and to echo his unlikely masters Gide, probably while it also make out for the reader what are his strength, and where are rooted his less savoury mannerisms. The book is divided in seven chapters, each presented by the author through a different writing mode: Each of those modes are actually thoughtfully fitted couleyrs the overall narrative, and beyond an exercise in style, reflect not only the mood and spirit of the story, but also seem to echo that textual and narrative self-image Brasillach, as with many fascists, has of himself.
What could have turned easily into a caricature is redeemed, I think, because this tension between the fascist cult of action, dynamism, violence, revolution on one hand, and the conservative bourgeois aspiration to peace and stability, reflects an internal conflict in the author himself and probably in French fascism at large, if we are to call it like that… — as it becomes clear further in the book, much of his perpetual eulogizing of youth and nostalgia is a strategy of kind to resolve this conflict.
The following chapter is of a lesser quality: He meets there a nazi who later finds him a job in a chamber of commerce in Germany. While in Germany he comes across an old acquaintance who implies that Catherine, despite her marriage in the meantime, brasilllach still in love with him. At the end of the chapter he abandons his German girl for a visit to France.
Les sept couleurs roman. (eBook, ) 
Much more interesting is the following chapter, which the author calls reflections or essay, but to me sounds somewhat like the aphoristic teachings of a Menalque or a Zarathustra. The theme, the common thread, is unsurprisingly that of youth, and its alleged waning at the approach of thirty: Its complex relationship to fascist ideology and aesthetics, I would venture, is clarified in those few pages: Youth, as often in fascist rhetoric from Marinetti onward is taken as the dynamic principle that fuels the fascist disregard for conventions and contingencies, but as comes its end, the crime, against good-taste and against modesty, is to perpetuate it artificially.
Age groups acquire something of the organic unity of the corporate state, oes defined in their function, moral, political and aesthetic, and nostalgia becomes, I suppose, the link that ensures cohesion of the whole.
Despite recurrent temptation to leave with Patrice, Catherine, in heroic passivity remain faithful to her husband, but following a misunderstanding this one leaves off and join the nationalist volunteers in the Spanish civil war. The introduction of phalangist songs here and there do add to the texture of the narration, but on the whole it seems all a bit gimmicky, or at least it would have gained from more room in the book. To conclude his story, Brasillach deliver a introspective monologue of Catherine, in the train to Spain where she is to meet her estranged husband, wounded in the war.
We learn little new about her apathy. All in all, if you need to read less Brasillach it should be this one: Beyond the historical interest Brasillach, after all, is chiefly remembered for his execution as a collaborator the book also hold some literary value, which, as far as I am concerned, was rare in the two previous books I have read of his.
It is an interesting novel which srpt romance trio story but it is told in an original and risky manner: The author chose two of his main characters adopting the fascist ideology during the s and how those point of views change due to marking events throughout Italy, Germany and Spain.
Some of the time his characters are passionate about fascism which could be for the reader a bit uncomfortable but this does not last for long during the book so there is not much to worry. A some moments I had found the letters cutting the great momentum that the “Story” part of the book had given to my reading but the story in overall is great.
