    Summary

    All Lena knows about silent Gracie before that moment, and all that she can convey to the reader, is an external observation. Anything else, everything else, that the reader—or Lena, our narrator—can access about Gracie is through the comfort code she chooses to express herself. Gracie’s repeated, but selective, assurances in Requiem that she remembers show the demarcations of fickle love: she remembers the people who remember her. She remembers the people who love her — the people who come back for her. She does not give courtesy to the people who took her silence as absence.

    Summary

    I decided to apply Silber’s test structure to two longer, related works to see if it holds true in the same way. Lauren Oliver’s Delirium trilogy has been of interest to me as a writer for the last several years because of its inconsistency: at a sentence level, all three books are beautiful, evocative, skilled prose, but structurally, as a trilogy, it makes no sense. The first book is written in linear time, or what Silber would call Classic Time, from one protagonist’s first-person close-distance point of view; the second uses Switchback Time to tell one-half of its plot in forward chronology and one-half in backwards chronology, so they “meet in the middle” towards the end of the novel; the third goes back to Classic Time, but introduces a second narrating character and pulls both sets of narrations back to a more distant first-person.

    Why is the second book, Pandemonium, written using Switchback Time when the other two books of its trilogy are not?

    Summary

    NO, OKAY, BECAUSE HERE’S WHAT’S SHITTY ABOUT MAKING IT LENA’S FATHER WHO “SUFFERED THE DELIRIA AND IS THOUGHT TO BE DEAD” RATHER THAN LENA’S MOTHER

    BECAUSE LENA’S MOTHER WAS A PARABLE FOR HOW BADLY SOCIETY TREATS A) WOMEN’S SEXUALITY, B) WOMEN’S EMOTIONS, C) WIVES AND MOTHERS, AND D) WOMEN IN GENERAL. SHE WAS TORTURED AND IMPRISONED FOR HAVING SEXUAL LOVE FOR HER HUSBAND AND FOR LOVING HER CHILDREN. SHE REFUSED TO BE BRAINWASHED – LITERALLY – BY SOCIETY INTO THINKING AND FEELING LIKE SHE NEEDED TO GO ALONG WITH THEIR IDEAS OF WHAT A SATISFACTORY LIFE SHOULD BE AND IN DOING THAT SHE SAVED HERSELF FROM BEING USED AS A BABY-MAKING VESSEL WITHOUT PERSONAL MOTIVATIONS OR DESIRE FOR HAVING HER OWN FAMILY AND HER OWN FREE WILL. SHE WAS CONSIDERED INSANE FOR HAVING LOVE FOR HER HUSBAND (WHICH IS PROBABLY A “HYSTERIA” METAPHOR, SINCE “DELIRIA” IS BORDERLINE THAT ANYWAY?)...
