Example text

Alice responds “you mean newer,” and when he insists that he means higher, Alice says: “higher, [. ” (IL, 41–42). Whereas Peter creates another lofty, romantic image by insisting that his new love is beyond the physical, Alice deflates the image by taking the word literally. By returning “higher” to the physical realm, she ridicules and undercuts Peter’s apparently romantic but in the given context actually mean remark. He elevates his new love at Alice’s cost, and her piercing sarcasm enables Alice to take some control of the situation and shield herself from getting hurt even more.

By deconstructing coherent linguistic and narrative structures, the authors deframe the female subject. Thomas’s novel deals with how Alice Hoyle is framed into conservative notions of motherhood that she wishes to change but cannot abandon. Thomas reflects this double movement — the protagonist’s wish to hang on to and abandon conservative models of femininity — in her narrative technique. Thomas points out the “contra-diction — the diction that ‘speaks against’ convention” (New 1997, 176, his emphasis) within linguistic and narrative frames without, however, transcending them.

An affect is either translated into a symbol through narrativization or, when the affect is too intense, it turns into a trauma. The affect preserves certain memories as “micronarratives” that are stored disconnectedly in our mind. Such prelinguistic and protonarrative kernels of memory, according to Assmann, are positioned in between physical inscription and symbolic encoding. Affects form the material for secondary processes of narrative stabilization (1998, 152). Very often, this is what happens to Alice in Intertidal Life.
