We stumble through it, thinking we are somehow in control, and it's what happens nevertheless while we are furiously busy making other plans, or simply fretting about making up our minds.
This is a literary novel, in the best sense, and I was surprised to read some critics cramming it into the diminutive genre "campus novel. The marriage plot, you see, is the genre form of which that work is representative.
Eugenides wants to know whether the marriage plot is dead as a meaningful literary form, now that marriage seems hardly worthy as the ultimate goal of youthful aspirations. Then there's the theme of semiotics. I studied with Roland Barthes yes, I'm that old and back then I don't think the term semiotics even existed.
At least, I don't recall his ever having used it. But he talked incessantly about structuralism, that a novel is a long sentence spoken by its author, a literary construct waiting to be parsed.
Understand, I didn't get any of this from him back then, just from what others, including Susan Sontag, have written about him since.
His lesson plan was built around Balzac's short story "Sarrasine," which is the engrossing tale of a man obsessed by an opera star who turns out to be both a castralto and the "kept woman" of a powerful priest.
But why Barthes chose that story for his criticism totally escaped me at the time, and I can only surmise now what his intentions were. But back to Eugenides. The characters meet in a semiotics class at Brown, and the author gives a lot of detail about the subject and its impact on their personal thoughts.
