The convent school by Barbara Frischmuth( Book )

97 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara Frischmuth portrays the convent school's authoritarian conditioning and a young teenager's struggle to become her own person in spite of it. The fourteen briefly-sketched chapters are a kaleidoscope of the confusion teenagers face when caught in a well-meaning, but unfeeling, legalistic educational process. Frischmuth has a superb ear for language as a repressive and an expressive tool. She adroitly blends many voices - of the girls exploring "certain" passages of the Old Testament, or of the nuns preaching a strange mix of common-sense survival techniques with outrageous strategies for controlling a husband. Life for the young charges in the convent is "schooling" with a vengeance: a rigid and authoritarian system drills the girls in answers to all the problems of life. Frischmuth presents the reader with the story of an individual who manages to find a voice of her own in spite of the strict pedagogical system which does not encourage independence of spirit or thought. In the final chapter we hear her for the first time communicating in a voice completely her own, marking the dramatic shift away from her oppressive tutelage to the first stirrings of genuinely critical self-awareness
