Reviews of Moderato Cantabile

Overall customer rating: 4.000

New way of writing and reading.

by Joalissa on Apr 3, 2007

Marguerite Duras is a brilliant figure of the lfrench iterature vague called Nouveau-Roman. In Moderato Cantabile, the reader is first surprised by the concision, the shortness of the narration. Here the story is mainly told through the dialogues of a man and a woman who get together in a cafe to discuss the murder of a married woman by her lover. The narration is strip off of all things unecessary, the description of the actions of the main characters is objective without any judgment about the why. The reader is engaged in the intellectual effort of discerning what is true or false, how would the story end and such.
