Then, when she was 20, came the world war. The careful attempt in Testament of Youth to recreate this context — the book begins in the nineteenth century and doesn't end until the s — is what makes it such a powerful read.
When the war comes, it is seen not as some isolated ordeal of shelling and trenches, nor as a political collapse — but as the Apocalypse for an entire society that was already struggling with class relationships and gender imbalances, and whose failure to address these issues was in fact central to the way it faced military conflict.
It's hard to write about this memoir objectively because reading it is such an emotional experience.
Day after day it left me drained and speechless, partly in sympathy with the losses she suffered and partly in admiration at her technique.
Her narrative voice is absolutely flawless; she finds a dry, amused tone which is drenched in a kind of sad wisdom and which positions her squarely in a tradition of English irony that I adore.

We are taught that God wants us to live differently than others in the world Ezra-Nehemiah , and also that God likes life and worldly things Proverbs and Song of Songs. Through the Writings we are encouraged to interact with God in the midst of our various experiences as humans. The Writings offer us vocabulary for worship and praise, but also of lament. At times we are to acknowledge that we are guilty, and in other moments we insist to God we have been faithful. We are shown lessons for life, but also that living this way is not a promise that it will all work out for us.
The Writings show us that. Thourgh the Lenses of Urban Youth By reading Scripture together with Karina, I was able to borrow her eyes in order to see the text in a new way. I asked Karina to read Ecclesiastes and the beginning of Proverbs and to tell me what rap songs it reminded her of. Wisdom is saying that if people do not listen to her, she will laugh at their calamity and mock them when terror comes Same concept.
