The Danish GirlNow a major motion picture starring Eddie Redmayne and directed by The Danish PDF or Tom Hooper THE DANISH GIRL is a shockingly original novel about one of the most unusual and passionate love stories of the th centuryLoosely inspired by a true story this tender portrait of marriage asks What do you do when t The Danish Girl is a delicate elegant novel about the search for one’s true self when one’s body as an external encasement doesn’t mirror what is on the inside; in short when a man is born a man in body but not in spirit It is also about what makes a marriage and how far a woman will go to let her husband find his true self knowing that she will likely lose him in the process The novel is based on real characters who lived in Copenhagen in the 1920s The story was groundbreaking at the time in the attitudes that needed to be turned around and in medical history The novel caught my eye because I’d seen a trailer for the movie which is hitting cinemas these days at least in Denmark starring Eddie Redmayne as Einar WegenerLily Elbe The cinematography from the trailer alone tells me that the elegance has translated well to the big screenHowever though the author mentions in the afterword that it’s a work of fiction I find it slightly problematic that only some of the names and the overall story about EinarLily are kept while his wife Gerda has been turned into an American from Pasadena in the novel called Greta but not in the movie She was as Danish as Einar but David Ebershoff himself is from Pasadena While this choice seems odd to me it didn’t prevent me from enjoying the novel It was uietly paced beautifully wrought and somehow otherworldly This brings me to the proseThe story is painted in empathetic hues – and it really is painted both Greta and Einar are artists and it is a painting which first triggers Einar’s gravitational pull towards the feminine Greta is finishing a painting of an opera singer and asks Einar to stand in for the sitter Einar puts on the dress and stockings and shoes for this and Greta unwittingly unleashes Einar’s transformation Einar could concentrate only on the silk dressing his skin as if it were a bandage Yes that was how it felt the first time the silk was so fine and airy that it felt like a gauze a balm soaked gauze lying delicately on healing skin Even the embarrassment of standing before his wife began to no longer matter for she was busy painting with a foreign intensity in her face Einar was beginning to enter a shadowy world of dreams where Anna's dress could belong to anyone even to himNobody ever touches a paintbrush or looks at a piece of furniture without our knowing what colour it is and what it’s made of It is a sensual world which perfectly conjures up Einar and Greta’s apartment in Copenhagen their brief sojourn to Paris Einar’s hospital visit in Dresden and Greta’s Pasadena In other books it would have been too much of what James Wood calls ‘thisness’ and to be honest I didn’t need to be constantly reminded that the wardrobe was made of ash wood for instance; or to know what everyone’s face looked like no matter how irrelevant they were to the novel I would have enjoyed many of the beautiful similes if they had not been so abundant here and there drawing too much attention to themselves rather than serving the story Still this is a story filled with tenderness love and sacrifice What I mostly take away from this novel is a wife’s undying and unconditional love for her husband the many different tones and shades that paint a life and what we will do to try to find happiness
