I met the man who became my husband at a book party in a downtown loft in late spring. In retrospect, meeting that way was auspicious, an indication of a shared passion, if not for the particular book being feted that evening — one about the dawning gig economy that has long since been surpassed by bleaker fare — than for books in general.
But at the time, I wanted nothing to do with him. I was tired. I was wary. The encounter would have ended there had Mark not demonstrated unusual and, given the circumstances, inexplicable persistence. He obtained my email address from a mutual friend and energetically deployed it. We exchanged the names of our favorite novels and joked about the fact that he had not read mine, nor I his.
There were more meals after that, along with, at crucial intervals, handwritten cards featuring lines from my favorite novel. Or that James had put them in the mouth of the duplicitous Gilbert Osmond to whom the trusting Isabel Archer is soon bound in unhappy marriage? Not to me. Nor did it strike me that there was anything unusual about courtship mediated by a literary classic.
Of shopworn phrases prettily repackaged and offered as revelation? Romantic love may top the list of linguistically overdetermined human experiences, and yet the beauty of it is that it always feels brand-new. Alert readers know this is not a good sign. The book is set in the s; poststructuralism is all the rage.
Thus, as Madeleine embarks on a relationship with Leonard, she is on very shaky phenomenological ground. The narrative scripts and plotlines that have governed romance for centuries are under attack, and with nothing in the wings to replace them, a sense of impending crisis prevails.
The answer he works out in his book is clever; there is a marriage and lots of love, but the marriage seems unlikely to last, and Eugenides seems determined to grant his characters freedom to construct their futures outside its constraints. Yet his ending is also ambiguous enough that it may leave some readers unsatisfied.
As did my relationship with Mark. Did I mention that he, too, had been a semiotics major at Brown? With the advent of dating apps and DMs, the narrative conventions surrounding romance have necessarily shifted.
Why copy passages from novels when you can text your date directly and, by selecting from a pre-existing menu of affect-specific emojis, let her know just how you felt about the evening while being spared the awkwardness of doing so to her face, in your own words? The point is this: When it comes to romance, no words have ever been, or will be, your own.
Even in our post-marriage-plot age of instant and endless communication, romance is still scripted. It remains an exercise in ventriloquism, only the textual references have become deeply suspect. The four central characters mingle and separate, migrating from sexual partnerships to platonic friendships, from marital unions to adulterous affairs and back again, just as their interactions morph from face-to-face talk over dinner and in bed to virtual exchanges over cellphones and email.
Love, when it comes up, is dismissed as fantasy, self-delusion, a capitalist plot leading to the procreation of ever more workers and consumers. What is a conversation? When the day arrived, I still had a chapter to go. I read the last page in my wedding dress that morning.
