    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Strachey ✓ ✓ Olivia Epub Ú olivia ebok, Olivia PDFEPUBThis is a supposed classic of lesbian fiction I had to check it out Sometimes novels or movies for that matter are named classics due to their sheer uality originality and epic grandness sometimes it is due to their contents being revolutionary for its day or for pioneering a new territory or genre With Olivia it might have been the latter It is a well written story of a student's ardent and incredibly chaste crush on her schoolmistress As characteristic of its time the Victorian sensibilities of the era make this primarily the passion of the mind and not a happy one at that The object of affections comes across as emotionally manipulative and cruel the eponymous character is much too naïve and reserved and the entire novel is somewhat overwrought with sentimental ornamentations It is entirely possible that it simply packs a lesser punch that other gay and lesbian classics of its time because although inspired by certain real facts this is a work writ

    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Strachey ✓ ✓ Olivia Epub Ú olivia ebok, Olivia PDFEPUBI was desperately curious about this because boarding school and lesbians and older book makes for a pretty interesting combination And interesting it is but so terribly odd in some ways too I don't think this sort of book would make it past a contemporary slush pile to be honest The setup drags on for uite some time despite the book's short length and there are numerous red herrings—I'd initially expected for example that Olivia's love interest would be Laura but insteadinstead we have something of a Boston marriage between teachers and teachers embroiled in jealousy and schemes andall sorts of thingsNow jealousy and schemes and so on—those would still go over like gangbusters But no what makes this feel so specific to its time is the peculiar chaste crush Olivia develops on one of her teachers at finishing school Olivia does not really know what the crush means; I don't think she really has any idea what she

    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Strachey ✓ ✓ Olivia Epub Ú olivia ebok, Olivia PDFEPUBWhen I bought this book I joked to my friend that books like this should come with a tragedy meter On a scale of 0 10 how likely are the lesbians to die at the end? I was nervous that I'd be frustrated and wouldn't enjoy the book because of that tragic trope However I found myself drawn in by the writing style I also really appreciated the sense of adolescent mystery that the book captured The narrator Olivia hasn't really figured out what's going on with erotic connections—I don't think she uite knows what she is feeling and I don't think she knows how to parse the behavior that goes on around her This makes for a moving mystery story I remember how it felt to not uite understand what was going on in myself and others The novel is a fast deceptively simple read bu
