À quoi sert le Discours de los angeles méthode devant los angeles tristesse qu'éveille l. a. mort annoncée d'un dad or mum ? Que valent les pensées les plus distinguées, les spéculations les plus audacieuses, si elles demeurent éloignées de los angeles vie ordinaire des hommes ?
Telles sont les questions que le narrateur, en cost d'une mère dont le corps et l'esprit peu à peu se dégradent, pose directement à René Descartes, enjambant d'une seule foulée les quatre siècles qui le séparent du grand homme.
Ne trouvant nul secours dans les traités du philosophe qu'il apostrophe et morigène, ne sachant se défendre de l'angoisse que lui motivate le vieillissement maternel, il finit par consulter, non sans défiance, l'extravagante et très peu cartésienne Mila.
C'est elle qui, par des voies que nous ne dirons pas, saura l'initier à l'amour (ce jeu où l'on perd quand on gagne), lui transmettre son goût des fables (qui disent los angeles vérité illogique et furtive des choses) et l'amener à s'orienter dans le brouillard sans trop le craindre.
Avec une allégresse ravageuse, Lydie Salvayre réhabilite l. a. technology du cœur.

If we shift our focus from endings to formal and conceptual beginnings, the sense of a binary structure, which valorizes an idyllic notion of motherhood over a demonized masculinity, is dislodged. What is revealed instead is that Wharton is as skeptical of an idealization of motherhood as she is of the patriarchal system under which the characters live. While Charity certainly seeks both a surrogate mother as well her own maternal biological origins, these origins are not the ideal she hopes to find.
As equals for good” (10). 5 A focus on the ending of Summer has sparked significant debate among critics. Many of these scholars accurately depict Wharton’s strong critique of patriarchal social structures that contain and appropriate female agency. But many of these same critics also want to see embedded in this critique a type of idealization of motherhood, which has been “depreciated, disdained, and ultimately, destroyed” by the representations of patriarchy in the novel (Elbert 4). Monika Elbert reads Wharton as mourning the loss of “motherhood,” represented by the “primeval mother within [Charity]” (7).
In many ways, Wharton’s novel is an example of what Margaret Homans and other theorists have called an adoption narrative. A particularly apt exemplification of what Homans calls “the unknowability of origins,” the narrative illustrates the fact that although knowledge about Charity’s past is “intensely but apprehensively sought” it is “not finally available” (“Adoption” 5). This unavailability or fictionality is directly connected by Wharton to the fictive nature of the maternal ideal. . usually understood as the key to a character’s identity” (Homans, “Adoption” 10).
