Poison Shadow and Farewell is the valedictory volume of Javier Marías's spy novel whose prose style represents a calcification of the novelist's poetic images lines phrases and symbols all unfolding in slow motion in the pedantic mind of its narrator In the 1200 page opus Your Face Tomorrow we find Jacues Deza recently separated from his wife Luisa in Spain and employed in London as an interpreter and as a kind of behavioral consultant under the tutelage of his boss Bertram Tupra an enigmatic and strong character of an unidentified national descent we find Deza afloat in a thick fog of reminiscences and observations endlessly conversing with people with his father and with his mentor Peter Wheeler both old and ailing involved in some shady adventures with his superior and finally involved in his own personal battle What started as a mental bloodbath among spy wits in the previous two volumes ends as a voluble political treatise on actual physical violence of wars and conflicts the recent and modern wars between nations and the intimate personal conflicts between two menDespite its obvious uarrel with a straightforward plot there is an actual linear progression of story that builds from its feverish beginning to the point of spear and a bloodstain to dancing and dreaming and in this volume to the injection of poison to the transformation of a person into a shadow character and to a final farewell Here is how Deza's corruption began   As I looked and half looked and saw a poison was entering me and when I use that word 'poison' I'm not doing so lightly or purely metaphorically but because something entered my consciousness that had not been there before and provoked in me an immediate feeling of creeping sickness of something alien to my body and to my sight and to my mind like an inoculation and that last term is spot on etymologically for it contains at its root the Latin ' oculus' from which it comes and it was through my eyes that this new and unexpected illness entered through my eyes which were absorbing images and registering them and retaining them and which could no longer erase them as one might erase a bloodstain on the floor still less not have seen them The passage of course runs for longer than that but Jesus how weird it is for the man to still invoke the etymology of a word when he is strapped helpless and forced to view some graphic images Beyond the vocabulary lesson there is an insistence on the part of the narrator to capture the most suitable word to describe the increasingly envenomed state he's entering Stumbling upon the word inoculation as a conscious or unconscious translation of his condition almost provides a comic relief almost relegates the process to comedy Deza's acceptance that he is being 'inoculated' proceeds from a linguistic recognition that last term is spot on etymologically to a validation of that recognition it contains at its root the Latin ' oculus' from which it comes to a final recognition that he is now infected Awareness of what is happening to him brings with it a certain comfort since he is able to interpret the situation at the level of language at least His command of language is used as defense mechanism to 'process' images of unspeakable horrors into recognizable shapes into a semblance of comprehensibility He detects evil in what he sees and it is being passed on to himIt is innate in humans to try to act rationally in the face of the irrational And so the pedant Deza continually corrects the charismatic Tupra in their long drawn out conversation that culminates in the video showing For instance he corrects Tupra on the correct attribution of a uote Rimbaud on the right pronunciation of Coahuila and on many other linguistic matters which are seemingly at odds with the issue at hand the issue of the moral and ethical justifications of the use of force Deza's obsession with the precise application of language seems to him the very act that will restore order in the increasing imbalance against peace and good that the latest events are undermining But what practical and lasting use are one's powers of perception and linguistic skills in the face of an increasingly violent intolerant world In the face of bloody wars Through the videotaped images of atrocities the implications of 'careless talk' which Marías introduced in the first two volumes are now for Deza coming closer to home The book has traced the gradual progression of plot from talk to live action from language to reality The flood of words consistent in its unchecked spilling becomes the very material of the novel's movement and resolution Words betray Words sink ships Words can be instruments of one's undoing On the other hand words warn Words can be a ticket to salvation Words console Words memorialize For spies the exchange of words becomes both necessary and suspect a paradoxical situation whose balance a speaker constantly strives for whenever she opens her mouth whenever she decides with finality to finally communicate to finally speak out and declare a simple factThe plot is thin and the book thick The ideas are plentiful The writing style has crystallized and hardened to such an extent that it almost rivals the exuisite and delicious boredom of Henry James's last three poetic masterpieces However much the charismatic Tupra plead for our narrator not to linger and delay linger and delay he did in every significant incident as if the injunction is just the thing he needed to hear so he can disobey and freely follow his thoughts The narrative style is that of free thinking of freezing the frames of action and dwelling in them at leisure and then to branch out to other frames to go off tangent in the freedom of spaceThe work of translation according to Paul Ricoeur after Freud is an act of remembering and of mourning Throughout YFT readers are treated to Deza's constant allusion to the past to the things as they were before his separation from his wife a separation which decisively marked his life In the novel's store of stories readers are made privy to the reminiscences of Wheeler and Deza's own father In translating and interpreting Deza constantly goes back to the sources of language the etymology the idiomatic and popular uses of a word or phrase the puns and the historical cultural contexts behind words He remembers and at the same time he mourns with a sometimes tragic sense of loss for what might have been He mourns for what faithful meaning could have been substituted to some slippery word or statement Atmospherically the novel is so suffused with tones of elegy and melancholy as to be draped in black cloths of mourning Marías interfaces historical wars with an individual's private wars and demons This he made to bear on an ancient and modern conundrum a concern of the past present and future tomorrow's unknowable face how to tolerate the 'other' Why should one not hurt or kill people On hearing this brazen uestion the value system starts to rebel Our order loving sensibilities are offended Yet in YFT the novelist forces the reader to confront naive uestions like this To consider the larger implications of using violence in desperate times The reader may as well listen in rapt attention since these uestions as the poet Wisława Szymborska noted are the most pressing ones By giving it a proper context and narrative grounding in the novel that 'innocent' uestion turned out to be as guilty as it sounds Full review at

Al private lives and Veneno y PDF horrific acts The scenes enter him like a poison contaminating everything good yet he is powerless to counteract themMind and memory polluted Deza goes home to Madrid on leave to find his father gently slipping towards death and his wife Luisa in. Third and final part of the trilogy 'Your Face Tomorrow' another 500 pages and again but 1 single real scene of action As in the previous parts Jacues Deza keeps on observing registrating interpreting and above all reflecting pages and pages on end Yet something has changed In the previous part his boss Mr Tupra confronted Deza with the use of bold violence the intense scene in the toilet for the disabled and the suggestion that there are no real moral laws In this part Tupra adds something to this and Deza feels how a 'poison' filters into his brain This will encourage him to do a bold act himself the only action scene in this book but in the end he will keep on doubting This short summary again does injustice to this book Mostly because it does not honour the multi layered character of the story but foremost because it doesn’t honour the slow meandering writing style with continued side paths comments on comments reinterpretation of findings and conclusions and so on and so on Marias really drags you into an mesmerizing swamp He rewards your reading effort in this third part by clearing up some storylines such as the intriguing blood stain on the staircase in part 1 but above all by leaving you after the last page in a kind of trance and with the feeling not to know for sure where you are never to know for sure again what you see to know what you know to be what you are BrilliantSee also my review of the complete trilogy
