Contemporary Studies in Literature and Language 1, 1 Self in this sense is a unique life story knitted in the social context one finds himself. This is the line McEwan follows and creates a series of novels that begins with Black Dogs , continues with Enduring Love and ends with Atonement

Joe Rose, the protagonist of the novel is a science journal writer who begins to narrate since he finds this act as a cure to his on-the-verge-of-collapse self and this decision resonates what Broyard argues: A rationalist, Joe tries to narrate a credible and reliable account of what has caused the current bedlam in his life. Stories make and break us. Joe, the first-person narrator of Enduring Love, is self-consciously aware of this function of stories.

As a journalist of science magazines, he is constantly preoccupied with the vital role of narrative. He tells that story just to make sense of his uncanny attachment to Jed. Such a redemptive function of narration is acknowledged by numerous theorists such as Alasdair Macintyre, David Carr and Theodore R.

Sarbin in their analysis of human psychology. A story is a symbolised account of actions of human beings that has a temporal dimension. The story has a beginning, middle, and an ending or as Kermode suggests, the sense of an ending.

Self-Making Narrative in Ian McEwan's Enduring Love | Seyed Javad Habibi -

The story is held together by recognisable patterns of events called plots. Central to the plot structure are human predicaments and attempted resolutions. It distinguishes between narrative per se and narrative fiction. His solipsistic personality confines him to the intuitive world of his consciousness so inescapably that he interacts with people as if they were fictitious characters created out of his own erotomaniac imagination.

In contrast to Jed, Joe, the major narrator, tries to use narrative for its therapeutic nature. It justifies why he relies on narration to combat the chaos that starts to hit his life.

The out-of-control balloon plays as a symbolic portent of the future disaster in his life. In this regard, Enduring Love is essentially a metafiction. Obsessed with the unreliability of narrative and disconcerted with his own narrative as misleading, Joe actually deconstructs both his journalistic writings and his active narration in Enduring Love. The ironical outcome of this disillusionment with narrative is his overt condemnation of factual discourse.

When sitting at London library and trying to concentrate on his scientific article, he self-consciously confesses: His anxieties about the unreliability of narrative and his consequent fretting at the difficulties he faces in telling his own story are both an appeal to honesty and what makes him a self-conscious narrator. He self-consciously dwells on the problematic nature of narrative that makes him always question the form and content of it throughout the text.

Even in chapter nine, Joe recounts the post-accident period from an interesting point of narration: Ironically, however, Joe uses his narration to defeat Jed and label him a manic subject. Assimilating the restrictive effect of scientific discourse, he implicitly attributes a manipulating power to his narration.

So labeled, Jed becomes an inexorable psychopathic subject unable to speak for himself as his words and actions are no more comprehensible. As a journalist who resorts to tell the story of a part of his life, Joe is torn between the world of narrative as a constructed universe, a product of the human mind, and the objective world existing independent of the mind.

He imagines that if narrative becomes factual and objective, there is no more the gloomy atmosphere of untruthful narrative. It moved into the universities; parsonical narratives gave way to hard-edged theories that could survive intact without experimental support and that had their own formal aesthetic.

At the same time, in literature and in other arts, a newfangled modernism celebrated formal, structural qualities, inner coherence, and self-reference.

A priesthood guarded the temples of this difficult art against the trespasses of the common man. Ironically, Joe enjoys the magical power spinning tales confers upon him and the satisfaction that it has brought to his life. He brags of his professional facility for narrating: There is this much evidence of his self-conscious role as a narrator.

The novel begins with the first-person narrator in chapter one. Then in chapter nine, Joe directly informs the reader that he is going to hand over the baton of narrative to Clarissa, though this never happens in that chapter as Clarissa turns to be only a focalizer and the narrative develops through third-person point of view.

There are two notable instances, as Malcolm attests, that support this idea. These scenes belong to the consequent period of the ballooning accident when Joe simultaneously acts and observes himself acting: As the one who affixed the unsent letter of Jed to Joe in appendix II, McEwan is responsible for interaction with the characters.

This mingling of authentic references with the imaginary one helps the establishment of the metafictional technique of blurring the boundary between the scientific facts and fictitious world.

This late appearance creates an ambiguity regarding the status of the section whether it is a part of the novel or exterior to it imposed by McEwan.
