Il brulicare dei significati
[dopo la seconda lettura, febbraio 2018]

Chi non apprezza particolarmente Antonia Byatt trova i suoi libri – e questo in modo particolare – prolissi o pesanti o troppo eruditi. Io invece li apprezzo molto e potrei al massimo dire che sono libri densi. Densi perché stipati, pieni di oggetti, di descrizioni, di pensieri, di personaggi, di citazioni, dichiarate o meno. E questi libri densi, solitamente, io me li godo proprio, pagina dopo pagina.
Le varie forme dell’arte, la letteratura, il teatro, le ossessioni per le spiegazioni onnicomprensive dell’universo e della società, l’incontro-scontro-incrocio tra religione e scienza (qui qualcosa rimanda anche a Angeli e insetti, oltre che ai successivi capitoli del “quartetto”); e come tutto questo si unisce ai rapporti interpersonali, alla scoperta-costruzione di sé, al sesso, alla famiglia: tutti i temi principali di Byatt mi interessano e ammiro la sua capacità di calarli in luoghi e tempi molto precisi.
E poi mi interessano tutti i suoi personaggi; mi piace la grande attenzione ai particolari, ai vestiti, ai movimenti dei corpi, alle parole, che rivelano identità sociali e psicologiche. E mi piace come questi libri densi, che stimolano il desiderio di soffermarsi sul particolare, di approfondire, di uscire dal testo per trovare altri riferimenti, immagini, vicende storiche, allo stesso tempo riescano ad essere intessuti di vicende che trascinano con forza avanti (qui l’energia di Daniel, il desiderio di scoprire la vita e di scintillare di Frederica: “Voglio, voglio, voglio…”).
È il primo momento del “quartetto di Frederica Potter”, ma in questo primo romanzo Frederica è solo uno dei personaggi principali, non annulla certo gli altri.

Per concludere, due citazioni, che nel testo sono legate a situazioni ben precise, ma che – estrapolate – possono diventare epigrafi del tutto:
«una sorta di dickensiana nostalgia per i dettagli di una vita svanita».
«Tutto brulicava di possibili significati».
