Mātes piens

Noras Ikstenas romāns “Mātes piens” aptver laika posmu no Otrā pasaules kara beigām un vēsta par triju paaudžu sieviešu likteņiem bet vēstījuma centrā ir 20 gadsimta 70 un 80 gadi Visu romāna tekstu caurauž atteikšanās – no vīra un tēva no sapņiem un iecerēm no darba un uzskatiem no draugiem un tiem kurus mīlam Šajā visu paaudžu sieviešu sāpju ceļā ļoti spēcīgs ir piedošanas motīvs Tas kopš mazotnes ir nepārtraukts uzdevums meitai lai turētu pie dzīvības māti kura apzināti viņai liegusi savu pienu lai neļautu mantot savas sāpes un izmisumu“Oficiālo vēsturi raksta uzvarētāji Patieso Latvijas dzimtu atmiņā glabātie notikumi izjustais un pārdzīvotais Nora Ikstena to aplieci. Soviet Milk is a novel which mixes despair with a kind of wistful beauty the claustrophobia of Soviet Latvia is combined with the wistful ethereal beauty of the Latvian countryside a country in which the uivers of moon light on the softly set snow are off set by the brutality of the regime which sought to crackdown on any sort of expression any truth which disagreed with its own narrow definitions of it The story follows a mother and her daughter the mother s life overtaken by alcoholism and depression a daughter whose precocity and problems with authority dimly echo her own mother s adolescence Yet despite their similarities both exist in a vacuum from one another unable to fully comprehend each other the daughter unable to recognise the immense sense of unfulfilled ambitions of her mother and her inability to cope to exist within the prison cell of Latvian society at one point her mother points out that her daughter s pet hamster which cannibalised its children not longer after they were born may have done so because it was unable to cope with them living in a cage Yet her mother fails to see that the freedom so long hoped to feel will be fulfilled in her daughter instead she is largely absorbed with her own demons that her literary heroes are Winston Smith and Captain Ahab is telling both are individuals who feel weighed down by their sense of self oppression and both are indomitable in escaping itHowever it is not so much the political or sociological aspects of Soviet Milk which remains with the reader although these are of course interesting it is the little moments of beauty that Ikstena is able to intersperse into the novel the pale moonlight on a cold winter night which imbues the atmosphere with an iridescent beauty the fragrance of the moss on a uiet afternoon of mushroom picking these are the moments which stay with the reader the small moments between a mother and daughter whose relationship is often fractured and distant
