Analysis of Tales of Burning Love by Louise Erdrich

Louise Erdrich is one of the brightest American writers of the contemporary Indian literature in the United States. Along with such prose writers as John Welch, L. Silk, T. King, and others she started in the 1970s the Indian literary renaissance.

A conceptual foundation of Erdrich’s works is mythology, history, and culture of Indians Ojibwa the author belongs to.

By portraying pressing human problems of the indigenous population of America in a cycle of works about the Indians of North Dakota, Erdrich attempts to reconcile Anishinaabe with the dominant white society. The author shows the destructive impact of socio-cultural discrimination against ordinary people in order to stop it.

This caught the attention of critics of the United States and Europe to Native American literature and reaffirmed its universal significance.

Some of the elements of Indian oral narration are similar to postmodern features: dual code of each novel (perception of works by Indian and non-Indian audience), the mask of the author (trickster narration, collective we), numerous allusions and reminiscences (different versions of the events of the novel) create a meta-text according to the postmodernist terminology. In Indian literature, it means that all the components of the work are combined by a basic common idea.

As a result, there is a hyper-text, which is read in accordance with the author’s key. In this case, Erdrich the third novel of Erdrich Tracks chronologically should be read as the first one; the second is The Beet Queen; the third is The Bingo Palace; the fourth is Tales of Burning Love; and the first novel Love Medicine is logically the last work of the tetralogy.

All of the main characters of Tales of Burning Love are corrupted in the beginning, before they start to love. Jack is a womanizer, and no major changes happen to him in the course of the novel. He only responds to Eleanor after resolving his relationships. Eleanor also tries to clarify her relations with Jack.

At first, Marlis seems to be the person who needs to feel power over others, but in fact she treats others better because she is loved by Candice. Candice on the other hand feels fulfilled with her love to Marlis and Marlis’s child. Dot still loved Gerry, although they are separated.

White color is constantly present in Tales of Burning Love, which has an ambivalent semantics. In addition to positive characteristics as light, purity, truth, it has negative characteristics as well – sadness, cold, paleness, and even death. Main events of the novel happen during a very snowy winter. The death of June is also predictable by the semantics of the white color.
