Sample text

Yeah that’s it really yeah ((slight laugh)). Extract 5 CG, male, born 1930, lines 885–90 CG: I apologise if I appeared smug during ((the interview)). I’m so happy. and I have been so lucky, I have had a very happy life. and that’s been partly dependent on the fact that I have three super kids, good marriage, an interesting job, never a shortage of money – I have no excuse to be resentful about age. The beginning of TE’s story of enjoyment is rendered in impersonal terms. It is as if the speaker was not merely speaking about himself and his desire to enjoy himself in his mid-years.

Full stop. whereas before I would be jumping up and down and all that sort of thing ((laughs)). The interviewee begins with a gender-free account of his ‘hot temper’, as he puts it. There is no hint in his narrative that he is referring to himself as a man or positioning himself in roles that imply masculinity. Instead, he is speaking with a gender-free subject position, as a person, rather than as a man. Moreover, he explicitly links the changes in his emotionality to age. It is only when he is asked to exemplify what he was saying that he implicitly takes on the role of a man/husband.

In this reference to popular culture, I do not mean, however, the exploits visually rendered by movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone or, more recently, Mel Gibson. It is not about macho heroism. Rather, I mean the deep emotional commitment to the fallen other that leads to sacrifice. In Hollywood terms, it is much more Forrest Gump or Saving Private Ryan than the likes of First Blood. This is indeed what I think the informant is talking about. I do not believe that the silence he speaks of is a reference to men’s inability to feel, or to talk about things.
