Soumission

A Parigi in un indeterminato ma prossimo futuro vive François studioso di Huysmans che ha scelto di dedicarsi alla carriera universitaria Perso ormai ualsiasi entusiasmo verso l’insegnamento la sua vita procede diligente tranuilla e impermeabile ai grandi drammi della storia infiammata solo da fugaci avventure con alcune stud. Wow Great satire of French of European of Western values or lack thereof So well done that the irony often slips by unnoticed Who the hell are we SoumissionSo what do you call a novel about Muslims taking over control of France A novel of generally cynical politics A novel where women appear mostly in sexually explicit scenes and have little to say except in defining themselves in relation to men some exceptions A novel where 15 year old girls become acceptable as second or third child wives A novel in which the much touted French intellectual defender of superior French culture appears to be willing to sell out in favour of the above In this case it is called Soumission In the Islamic religion one submits to Allah In Soumission one submits to what one believes is necessary for a happy life perhaps the same thing but most likely cynical to a point In any event the Christian belief in Christ belief in European values are found wanting no longer relevant So submission it is GR readers seem to be greatly divided on this novel Not only are there sharp divisions on ratings but even those who agree on ratings often seem to have read different books Who should read this Those who have a strong sense of irony a willingness to be uncomfortable with themselves and a well developed understanding of satire for this is satire at its best subtle but in your face at the same time A certain knowledge of French culture and current French politics would also help but can be uickly acuired as needed on line The English translation is scheduled to be out in October 2015 Michel Houellebec has written a book about a disaffected lonely somewhat cynical French university professor at Sorbonne III Fran ois Fran ois has many years back written his doctoral thesis on the writings and life of Joris Karl Huysmans a fact that is important to the novel Alcohol seems to play an exaggerated role in his life The reader is subjected to his innermost thoughts on his life his work French politics and his sexual activities both alone and with others The story unfolds in the first person as the world evolves before Francois eyes So it s 2022 and France and the world have continued to unfold on the current track Nothing much has changed as France enters its scheduled elections And the Earth moves and nothing happens The gist of the story which you can read in detail elsewhere preferably in the book is that France inadvertently elects a Muslim led government Plausible under Houellebec s view of his compatriots The newly elected Muslim Brotherhood party in coalition with the Socialists moves slowly and intelligently under Prime Minister Mohammed Ben Abbes a likeable and competent man to transform France Europe and the entire Mediterranean region into a moderate Islamic culture He is somewhat of a Constantine transforming Rome This change leaves Fran ois at somewhat of a loss in particular he has lost his teaching position non Muslims are not allowed to teach in publicly funded institutions and he has lost his young Jewish girlfriend who has moved with her family to Israel and met someone else He wanders in this new culture at a loss but he was somewhat at a loss before the changes Houellebec makes it clear throughout the book that French European culture is already bankrupt Can we see the Muslim takeover as a new opportunity for a better future I do not believe that Houellebec wants to say that Nor is he in disdain of the Muslim takeover His disdain is for his fellow French citizens who have lost all values All is not lost for Fran ois however The new administration comes calling They need him They need an expert in Huysmans on the faculty Indeed the new administration wants to support traditional French culture for all of its respectability They have no intention of interfering with the tradition of La Belle France It is Fran ois who hesitates First in trying to situate himself in the new France he has gone searching for his old passion Huysmans He has tried to follow Huysmans into the world he withdrew into a hundred years earlier when he too found himself adrift in a changing France and uickly flees back to France uestioning Huysmans commitment and sure of his own ability to suffer Christian commitment He needs stimulation not adulation Mostly he needs to satisfy his own sexual obsessions normal male sexual obsessions He has returned to Paris to try to fulfill his needs and to basically give up when the offer comes to return to the Sorbonne But as with all good deals there is a condition Of course Fran ois must become a Muslim and he cannot imagine doing so His recent experience with his Christian beliefs has left him drained of the possibility of believing in any religion And this is where Houellebec is at his best He introduces us to Robert Rediger a man recently promoted to be in charge of the Sorbonne but moving uickly up the ladder into the leadership of the new Muslim government He is charming intelligent extremely well read and Muslim He converted to Islam as a young man and comes across as sincere At the same time Rediger is enjoying all of the benefits of his situation a grand old mansion an overflowing library the best of wines and a new 15 year old wife to supplement his first middle aged wife who uietly moves around in the background serving his every need Rediger explains his own conversion many years before feeling unsatisfied with the values of the world in which he lived Belgium Cette Europe ui tait le sommet de la civilisation de la monde s est bel et bien suicid e en l espace de uelues d cennies European culture was collapsing and his favourite bar in Brussels in the Hotel Metropole noted for its Art Nouveau style was closing In contrast he saw Islam as providing stability of tradition unchanging in its values in its submission to Allah As the Metropole closed he became a Muslim a sincere Muslim He tells his story to Fran ois and then sets out to lay out why Islam has become the core of his life the concept of submission of woman to man as in the novel The Story of O Fran ois has been given a lot to think about Rediger has also given him a small book he has written on Islam it has sold millions He reads the book and on their next encounter poses some uestions uestions on bigamy His main concern as a professor is that he does not consider himself to be a dominant male Rediger clarifies that no university professors are by nature dominant males But then there is the real problem of how does a man chose the right woman Here too Islam has developed the perfect solution les marieuses women whose role it is to approach young women s families on behalf of men Simply put the process of finding a spouse or spouses is without stress Islam has taken care of that Worry free courting Houellebec has been accused of being anti Islamic but I think not Yes it is Islam that takes over France but it is not portrayed as evil or oppressive It simply is Definitely Houellebec portrays it as something much benign than the Christian takeover of the Roman empire some 1 600 years ago Pagans would have gladly suffered such a fate as French citizens face here losing your job with a full pension No not the Muslims nor women are Houellebec s target It is his fellow French intellectual the complacent unthinking European who has abandoned all semblance of cultural tradition who cannot relate to hisher own roots who cannot form real human relationships that he attacks Islam isn t a bad thing It is portrayed as being a energetic committed other which replaces the sloth of Europe A satirical warning that if values matter the need to be upheld If not then accept what comes One thing should be noted by those of us in the Americas We a barely thought of here I would guess that Houellebec considers that we already have nothing to lose We are already long have been little than barbarians This is a novel about values and I suspect Houellebec is in complete distain of what we have and have never had His concern is for what France has lost and continues to lose Homo Zodiacus ormai ualsiasi entusiasmo verso

E che cresce e si sviluppa come un incubo che travolge anche François Sottomissione è il romanzo più visionario e insieme realista di Michel Houellebec capace di trascinare su un terreno ambiguo e sfuggente il lettore che come il protagonista François vedrà il mondo intorno a sé improvvisamente e inesorabilmente stravolger. Would a society based on Moderate Islam be such a bad thing This seems to be the kind of book that divides critics into the two eually useless camps1 This is islamophobic and racist garbage2 Bravo A dark satireMy view is that it s neither All Houllebec is saying is that a completely secular society is like a vacuum Given the opportunity it will let itself be filled If you don t want to risk it being filled with something you don t like then you shouldn t have emptied it completely in the first place With this in mind Houellebec goes on to show how the polarization in French politics could pave the way for a Muslim party to get into power and what it could mean for the French populationReturning to the uestion in the title would that be a bad thing Well it turns out not necessarily From a perspective of power comfort and freedom at least not for men half the population Or at least the heterosexual and educated part of itI don t see this novel as an attack on Islam I am no expert on religion but most of what he says about it seems to be accurate If anything he is merely pointing out that Islam as a religion is much capable of social change due to it s hereditary element and ability to bind large amounts of people to it s cause whether it s for good or bad The sense of cultural loss and inability to feel any sort of connection to your own roots which dominates the French secular society in Soumission and perhaps also real life appears as a no less bleak situation than what Islam offers namely a life with meaning and a clear direction The downside The return of the patriarchyJust some minor details concerning women s rightsHouellebec is criticizing everyone and no one really He isn t pointing fingers of laying blame He is merely pointing out that a secular society is fragile very fragile and that it to a certain extent has to be combined with a set of cultural values if it is to remain in place Otherwise it will slowly erode under the pressure of other ways of life which in this case just happens to be Islam For better or worse Better for some and worse for others like every other society in the history of mankind Houellebec doesn t presume to have the answer he is simply saying that it will be different and that it might very well happen

    It seems as though Houellebec wrote the novel to stir up not debate but controversy I'm afraid to say that charging a small segment of French population with so much power and influence is way too out of proportion French Muslims have no power

    I have never been a big Houellebec fan finding his obsession with his own intellect and genitalia annoying so when a friend assured me that this book Submission from 2015 was his masterpiece and was not just a paen to his intellect I gave it a shot Well aside from the novel premise of an islamic conversion of France in the 2017 election and a few comical observations here and there the book is still primarily about his own intelle
