Chapters 19-24 Enduring Love
Transcript of Chapters 19-24 Enduring Love
Joe stops in some woods to try out the gun, races back to London, enters the flat and, after some tense moments with Jed and a knife, shoots Jed in the elbow. No charges are pressed against Joe, but he lives with an enduring image of Clarissa's expression of 'repulsion and surprise' at his using a gun.
HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU READ THIS ?
Chapter 19 - Clarissa's birthday lunch with Joe and her godfather, Professor Jocelyn Kale. Kale gives Clarissa her present - a double helix brooch - and regales them with tales of the discovery of DNA. Joe finally gives her his present - a first edition of Keats's Poems of 1817. A man in the party of three on the next table is shot and wounded, and a lone man (Jed Parry) at another table prevents the would be assassin from finishing off his victim
Back at the police station, and grateful and relived that at last the truth will out, Joe is shocked to discover that his version of events is not believed by the police - not helped by the fact that everyone's version is slightly different. Joe reflects on the impossibility of objective truth. Back at the flat Joe searches through his address book, finally finding the person - Johnny B Well - most likely to be able to get him what he wants - a gun.
Joe and Johnny go to pick up the gun from Johnny's ex-hippy contacts, Steve, Xan and Daisy. After a tense and violent encounter Joe leaves with the gun, only to be phoned by Jed who is in Joe's flat with Clarissa.

MOMENT OF CLIMAX
Not a hugely useful chapter but it's handy for two things. What do you think they are?
EMPATHY FOR JOE
Think about how we feel when we learn of Tapp's credibility as a victim. Do we feel sorry for Joe - certain that nobody will believe him? (I felt my isolation and vulnerability)
How about during his interview with Wallace - do we empathise with his powerlessness?
WALLACE - a caricature of a policeman?
CARICATURE: a picture or description that ludicrously exaggerates the peculiarities or defects of persons or things: think back to chapter 18!
Caricatures of Steve, Jonny, Xan and Daisy
CLOSINGS - Jed's phone call!
Useful as a comparison of SETTING if considering the flat
Useful if considering the characterisation of Jed
Worth noting that it is here that the relationship between Joe and Clarissa appears irreconcilable.
This is the culmination of the tension from the previous paragraphs
Whilst acknowledging that he was in some ways right about Jed Parry, and that he has saved her life, Clarissa nevertheless still blames Joe for the way he has handled the situation, and fundamentally sees it as his fault. From her point of view Joe, as well as Jed, has serious problems.
You were manic, driven and very lonely.
Together we might have deflected...
I always thought our love was the kind that was meant to go on and on. Perhaps it will. I just don't know.
Joe and Clarissa drive to Oxford to see Jean Logan, ten days after the shooting and the day after Joe's meeting with Joseph Lacey. They talk awkwardly and impersonally about Keats, electric cars and life on Mars before arriving at Mrs Logan's. After a picnic by the Thames they are joined by James Reid, Euler Professor of Logic, and Bonny Deedes, his student. Reid explains that Bonny is his 'mistress', and was not Logan's, who was merely giving them a lift after their car had broken down. The main narrative ends with Jean Logan's daughter Rachael asking Joe to tell her brother Leo about the river.
The final chapter - closings
It was much the same as before...
though I came nowhere near shouting, as she suggested...
Unreliable narrator? Who?
She and the police forced my isolation.
Clarissa was unobtrusively packing the picnic away.
we were pitching our own requests for mutual forgiveness.
