Summary / Abstract:

LTStraipsnyje nagrinėjamas dažniausias vyrų ir moterų santykių modelis aktyvios bei reprezentacine pripažįstamos rašytojos Renatos Šerelytės prozoje. Teigiama, jog pamatinis ryšio stimulas yra racionaliai neartikuliuota, bet nuolat jaučiama trauka, o konkrečias sambūvio formas lemia istoriškai nusistovėjusi ir tebegyvybinga hierarchiška lyčių samprata. Vyrai įsakmiai reikalauja, moterys linkusios jiems užleisti viršumą. Kūniškos sueities nepapildo psichologinis intymumas, smurto atmosferoje neužsimezga ilgalaikė lygiaverčių partnerių bendrystė. Šerelytė užaštrina psichologinį ir socialinį lyčių atotrūkį bei atskleidžia pačių moterų savimonės patriarchališkumą. [Iš leidinio]

ENThe article examines the dominant model of gender relations in the works of Renata Šerelytė (b. 1970), an established Lithuanian prose writer of the post-Soviet Independence period. It argues that her literary men and women are substantially linked by an instinctive, rationally unarticulated pull, while the concrete forms of coexistence are strongly influenced by powerful hierarchical understanding of gender. Šerelytė's short stories and novels present authoritative, commanding, brutal male and undemanding, passive, submissive female characters; underlines individual, social, and psychological alienation, and in particular focuses on the painful problem of domestic violence. Independently on a social background, level of education or professional achievement, Šerelytė's couples lack love, respect, and common interests; spiritual intimacy rarely accompanies their sexual intercourses. Women usually attach more significance to gender relations (some experience a real psychological addiction), make every effort, and sacrifice their own aspirations, while men almost never feel responsible either for household, neither for emotional ties and are keen on keeping double standards both in public and private life. The atmosphere of constant discomfort, psychological and physical abuse prevents from lasting relations and equal partnership of women and men.Šerelytė's considerably contributes to Lithuanian literary interpretation of the topic of gender relations by revealing some elements of patriarchal ideology in women's consciousness. Not only the conservative provincial society suppresses women's will and requires the traditional role of a carrying wife, but also young city professionals despite their Bohemian youth agree to meet the requirements of their traditionalist husbands (e.g., to cook family meals) or concede them a wheel of family life (for instance, husbands take a right to choose a family home without consulting their spouses). The separate extension of this dominant hierarchical model is gender relations based on the exchange of female body and male money. Young city women occasionally date middle-aged married men and in return get cosmetics, restaurant dinners, and love making in a back seat, or attain career promotion. They do not avoid accidental, experimental or reprehensible sexual contacts, but their thoughts, memories, and erotic fantasies reveal their true wishes and expectations: gentle touches, cosy conversations, and sincere interest in their life.
