    Alias Grace E–pub READ Margaret Atwood ó 6 READ FREE READ ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ó Margaret Atwood So so good Alias Grace uestions the existence of an absolute truth Moreover how is what we think of as the truth informed by power structures specifically gender and class disparages? Can someone who is deemed mad tell the truth? Who do you believe when push comes to shove? Even though this book was written in the 90s and is set in the middle of the 19th century it remains an incredibly relevant read I couldn’t help

Alias Grace

READ Alias Grace î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB In Alias Grace bestselling author Margaret Atwood has written her most captivating disturbing and ultimately satisfying work since The Handmaid's Tale She takes us back in time and into the life of one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of the nineteenth centuryGrace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vici. All the same Murderess is a strong word to have attached to you It has a smell to it that word musky and oppressive like dead flowers in a vase Sometimes at night I whisper it over to myself Murderess Murderess It rustles like a taffeta skirt across the floor Sketches made of Grace Marks and James McDermott during their sensationalized trialGrace Marks at the age of 16 in 1843 was arrested along with James McDermott for the murders of their employer Thomas Kinnear and his mistresshousekeeper Nancy Montgomery The murders were rather sensationalized in Canadian society what with the cold blooded brutality and the fact that a young rather beautiful young woman was involved McDermott was sentenced to hang while Marks was saved from the gallows by the spirited defence of her lawyer She spent the next thirty years of her life incarcerated first in an asylum and then in a prison This story really picked up several years later when Doctor Simon Jordan decided to make a study of her and hoped to unlock some of her missing memories See there were key elements that she didn t remember about that day that would help him to determine if she was truly a murderess or merely an unwilling accomplice Jordan was struck by her from the very first moment he met her Her eyes were unusually large it was true but they were far from insane Instead they were frankly assessing him It was as if she were contemplating the subject of some unexplained experiment as if it were he and not she who was under scrutiny And then there was this observation of Grace by Jordan as well She s thinner now less full in the face and whereas the picture shows a pretty woman she is now than pretty Or other than pretty The line of her cheek has a marble a classic simplicity to look at her is to believe that suffering does indeed purify Other than pretty implied further depths to her beyond just the surface beauty that captured the imagination of a ghoulish public He might not know it but he was already smitten with Grace and in danger of tumbling head over heels in love with her It is hard to keep control of a series of interviews if you have become interested in than just the deeds of the individual As an added distraction every mother in Toronto with a daughter was trying to manufacture ways to throw their pretty daughters in front of this very eligible bachelor He was a doctor after all As one season s crop of girls proceeds into engagement and marriage younger ones keep sprouting up like tulips in May They are now so young in relation to Simon that he has trouble conversing with them it s like talking to a basketful of kittens They were fresh so new they were barely out of the packaging of their youth and of course virginal What every man should desireright Well if one doesn t mind vacuousnessAs fascinating as Grace s story is I found myself becoming even engrossed with the story of Dr Simon Jordan and his desire driven demons His landlady whose husband had absconded on a bout of debauchery was also proving to be a damsel in distress as her only source of income became her one lodger Her face is heart shaped her skin milky her eyes large and compelling but although her waist is slender there is something metallic about it as if she is using a short length of stove pipe instead of stays Today she wears her habitual expression of strained anxiety she smells of violets and also of camphor She was a beauty past her prime but still she was compellingly sexy He felt this attraction against his will There was no hope for a relationship She was married and too old to ever be acceptable to his family or his class He was supposed to marry one of those inane young ladies It would be one way of deciding his fate or settling his own hash or getting himself out of harm s way But he won t do it he s not that lazy or weary not yet I can t help but think of Newland Archer from The Age of Innocence who allowed himself to be trapped into what was expected of him as well What if Archer had escaped with Countess OlenskaI still pine for him to escapeSo even though the landlady was forbidden bruised fruit he couldn t help but notice that Her lips are full but fragile like a rose on the verge of collapse This was one of the many times when I had to read a Margaret Atwood line many times rolled it around the surface of my tongue so that I could taste the sweet the bitter and the savory of that beautifully written line Dr Jordan was starting to have odd thoughts and unsettling dreams of murders committed by himself He started digging in the garden under the pretense of planting a garden but it seemed even to his subconscious self that he was loosening the soil forthe corpse of his landlord if he should return or maybe a stack of bodies of those from which he wished to escape It would put him on an eual footing with one particular woman Murderess murderess he whispers to himself It has an allure a scent almost Hothouse gardenias Lurid but also furtive He imagines himself breathing it as he draws Grace toward him pressing his mouth against her Murderess He applies it to her throat like a brand This novel is based on the true story of Grace Marks History lost track of her once she was released from prison after nearly thirty years of incarceration No tombstone is known to mark her grave She simply vanished into the woodwork of a new
