    Viva Chama, Tracy Chevalier

    “Essa mulher só escreve fanfics?” “Puta merda, a Europa no século xviii era nojenta...pouca coisa mudou” “A maior fanfic de todos os tempos, depois de Percy Jackson, As crônicas de Nárnia e Garota com brinco de pérola” “Passei a odiar mostarda depois que li” “Maggie apenas enfiou a faca, quem matou foi Deus” - A Megera (in)domada, NY Times, 2021.

    isso será - provavelmente - mais sobre Garota com brinco de pérola.

    Tracy Chevalier, libriana quase de escorpião, é uma romancista muito conhecida por sua fanfic...digo, romance, intitulado “Garota com brinco de pérola”, cuja adaptação cinematográfica foi estrelada por Scarlett Johansson. O fato de eu desprezar essa fanfic...digo, romance, é algo que não cabe aqui pontuar, maaasss é um fato curioso, pois, apenas descobri que a Tracy escreveu Garota com brinco de pérola depois que acabei Viva Chama, se tivesse me atentado a isso antes (isso porque vem escrito na capa do meu livro: da mesma autora de Garota com brinco de pérola - eu chamo a fanfic de Garota e não Moça, como o quadro), leria Viva Chama com o coração fechado. 

    “Mas Megera, por que você diz que ela escreve fanfics?” Explico, pequeno padawan. Acontece que, tanto em Viva Chama como em Garota com brinco de pérola (não sei outras obras da Chevalier), a autora pega alguns fatos históricos, pessoas que realmente existiram e escreve um romance. Por exemplo, na história do brinco de pérola, Tracy, baseada em alguma pesquisa e nas vozes de sua cabeça, escreve a história que teria inspirado o quadro mais famoso de Johannes Vermeer. Já em Viva Chama, o contexto histórico, principalmente o político, e os personagens reais, como William Blake e os Astley, são apenas o pano de fundo do romance de Maggie e Jem, dois pimpolhos que estão iniciando a adolescência. É bem fofo como eles são aparentemente opostos e até brigam bastante, mas estão tentando entender os próprios sentimentos que têm um pelo outro, bem adolescente de 12, 13 anos mesmo. 

    A questão dos opostos é algo que se você for ler apenas por ler (como eu), talvez não fique tão evidente. Não são opostos apenas Maggie e Jem no sentido de que um é do interior e o outro é da cidade, um é medroso e o outro não, um sabe ler e o outro não, a família de um é mais retraída e a do outro mais dada...e por aí vai. Todos os personagens são - em si mesmos - opostos, bons e maus, daí senti uma pegada bem crua na história, bem real, fora a descrição dos cenários da época, é impressionante. Parece que a Tracy realmente esteve lá. A descrição da podridão de Londres é algo que dá pra quase sentir. Senti o mesmo lendo a descrição de delirium tremens em O iluminado. Adoro quando isso acontece. Os efeitos do trabalho na fábrica de mostarda também são muito bem descritos...Retratar cenários e efeitos é algo que a autora sabe fazer muito bem. 

     No fim do livro a Tracy explica que “pegou as referências” de oposição de "Canções da experiência” e “canções da inocência”, de William Blake...Ah, William Blake, merecia mais.

    Como disse, os personagens reais são apenas pano de fundo pro romance. O que aconteceu com o Blake. Aqui ele é apenas um homem bom e meio maluco que gosta de ajudar as pessoas, desenhar, escrever poemas e transar com a esposa no jardim. Ocasionalmente ele se impõe contra a monarquia, mas esse momento é apagado porque começam a cantar no meio da perseguição...ah, sim, em alguns momentos sempre aparece alguém cantando, o que, acredito, tira um pouco do feeling do momento. 

    Em resumo, achei o livro péssimo? Não. Achei o livro ótimo? Ótimo é uma palavra muito forte. Não odiei, é um pouco mediano comparado ao que já li, e geralmente eu esqueço as coisas medianas

    You're so calm and quiet, you never say. But there are things inside you. I see them sometimes, hiding in your eyes.
