The Sailor from Gibraltar
The young man accompanies Anna on her search - a journey which takes them to France and Africa - even into the heart of the jungle. Slowly, love grows between them, and the sailor becomes not a reason but an excuse which allows their love to flourish. Yet they exist in a state of fluidity - for the sailor may always turn up to claim Anna.
In this early novel, written in 1952, Marguerite Duras shows those preoccupations which have so deeply concerned her in her later novels and film scripts: loneliness, boredom, the inevitability and intangibility of love.
The lambent poetry of the book, the delicate probing of a woman's mind, her love and sense of the inevitability of that love are peculiarly Marguerite Duras. 'The Sailor From Gibraltar' was filmed by Tony Richardson with an international cast headed by Jeanne Moreau and Ian Nannen.
