“Meneseteung” by Alice Munro | Bibliophilopolis
Munro is something of a rare bird among writers, choosing to specialize in short stories as her primary form. Each chapter is introduced by a few lines of her poems.
I must say I found the structure of this story a little tedious, as points of view and points in time jumped around quite a bit. There were also times when a fictional local menwseteung, the Vidette, is quoted as a way to introduce new topics or passages. Though I struggled with the format, there was some indisputably amazing writing in the story, especially when Munro describes life in the province where she grew up. Swamp oaks, soft maples, tamarack, butternut.
As soon as a man and woman of almost any age are alone together within four walls, it is assumed that anything may happen. Spontaneous combustion, instant fornication, an attack of passion. Brute instinct, triumph of the senses.
What possibilities men and women must see in each other to infer such dangers. Or, believing in the dangers, how often they must think about the possibilities.
Perhaps, like many, it just requires a deeper dive on the readers part. Menesteung, this week I lacked the time and energy to read this one over again. The odd title of the story refers to the name of a river in the region of Ontario where the story takes place.
So, happy early 83rd to Alice Munro! Have you read any Alice Munro?

I still have not read any of her stories, but I have the volume you mentioned with this story in it. July 7, at 7: Almost as great an honor as having now been read three times by DMI participants!
