The experience of such trauma 14 invokes a crisis of reality. It overflows the boundaries of rational containment. There are 15 no mechanisms with which to apprehend such an event, and because of this it cannot 16 be comprehended; because it cannot be comprehended it cannot be processed. Although removed from the location and events of her trauma, Babette remains 18 the resident of an austere and colourless environment, her gifts repressed, her brilliance 19 unseen. Healing comes to Babette through her willingness to revisit her true self, a self 20 that has been crushed under the weight of grief and trauma.
How you will enchant the angels! Dinesen chose to repeat a motif, word-by-word, in two passages that at first glance appear incommensurable.
Surely Babette, the Parisian cook who brings the abundance and excess of a great feast to Berlevaag, did not renounce the sensuous and aesthetic as did Philippa. Her feast, however, cannot be perpetual, despite all its magic.
Thus an unexpected parallel emerges between what has otherwise been read as two conflicting viewpoints, played off against each other in order to heighten the comic nature of the narrative: the Puritan, ethical North versus the Catholic, sensuous South.
Many have observed the Eucharistic resonances of a feast at which twelve people are assembled and which commemorates the death of the founder of a religious movement.
In a manner which would previously have been unthinkable to its partakers, Babette renders the ordinary and earthly transparent to the Divine through the worldly means of sumptuous food and drink. In all this, Dinesen elaborates on how the sensual can lead to an apperception of the presence of the Divine. She powerfully develops Abundance and Simplicity 19 the vision of an aesthetic and ultimately Eucharistic connection between heaven and earth, suggesting a participatory ontology in which beauty is an instance of the Divine and in which mundane, bodily realities are the scene of divine mediations.
More surprisingly, this very same vision is associated also with the puritan North. A lucid beauty attaches to Martine and Philippa, the Puritan sisters, with regards both to their appearance and their character.
This fairness is heightened and sustained by their pure and virtuous nature. Martine, just as her sister, epitomizes a wondrous simplicity, made manifest in a true continuum between what she appears to be and what she is. Likewise, the sisters exemplify a rare continuity between inner and outer beauty, where there is no rupture between the soul, its intentions and bodily actions.
The fair simplicity of the sisters reflects, as it were, divine simplicity, and their kenotic charity renders divine love incarnate. I actually carry my stories in my head for a long time, before I write them.
