Madeleine by Kate McCann - II  By John Blacksmith
Thursday, 30 June 2011

Madeleine as a primary source & historical record
.......... What about as a record for future students of the case by one of the two central figures? How reliable is it?

The remainder of the book, the greater part in fact, is of little importance: 


 In this section we shall look closely at the first period and analyse it in detail; we can consider the couple's experiences at the hands of the Portuguese police later on in the third part of this review, where we discuss the value of the book as a self-portrait of Kate McCann.



....... that they might lose their younger children to UK social services on the grounds of parental neglect perhaps justified a certain caution in their accounts of events; 

with the passage of time, however, the likelihood of any such action has dropped to zero. 



Construction

..........Out of the 368 pages of the work some 27 are devoted to the week of the disappearance, culminating in her 10PM visit to apartment 5A — pages 44 to 71. Two of these are diagrams, leaving just 25 pages of text or some 7.5% of the work.

The structure of the section is as follows:

1) A day to day account of the minutiae of the holiday, reading rather like an appointments diary. Much of .............................

2) This takes up around 18 pages. The remaining 7 consist of insertions into the narrative — about a page and a half or so of complex memories of Madeleine and some 5 pages of justification by Kate for her actions written from outside the story itself.

............the words they use: in Kate McCann's case there is what we call an extreme disjunction between the words on the page and the real feelings of the author — such as they are — as expressed in that mystery, the tone of a piece of writing.

Apart from the insertions it is more of a drone than a tone. .........................

Now, ........... –
the owl-like and pompous but comically accident-prone David Payne, for example, his silkily ambitious wife (the one with the scarves) whose perfume can almost be smelt on the page, the embittered and hostile Russell O'Brien, deep-down conscious that his carefully planned career will never be the same again, the stage-comedy scatty old lady Dianne Webster, who can't even remember her own address .............

Then what about the Madeleine passages? Can we be fairly sure that they don't spring from the narrative either? They certainly don't seem to. Significantly our first real view of Madeleine on holiday — on the aircraft steps — is given not from direct memory but from the video made by the group. A few pages after that the bare recitation of events and lengthy descriptions of the apartment is interrupted:

.......

The next is on page 57:

"It chokes me remembering how ...... OK, OK — but this wasn't strictly the child in Praia da Luz either, but a photograph:

"... that I ran back to the apartment for my camera to record the occasion." The child herself is momentarily excluded as Kate McCann shifts time and space once more,

On page 65 she .......................Praia da Luz:



Her characterization of the child throughout these interpolations is flimsy and as for the dynamics of the relationship between mother and daughter — and anyone with children of Madeleine's age knows how extensive and complex the relationship has already become — there is almost nothing.

I stress these points not at all to criticise Kate McCann as a mother but to illustrate the way in which the child does not emerge naturally from the narrativeand that is because she is not really part of it. Perhaps .........

"...I have ....... these contentious areas come down to three episodes: the decision not to use babysitters, the supposed visit of David Payne to her apartment on the early evening of May 3 and the notorious problems of the evening "timeline."

This piece which purports to describe Madeleine's last known week is a sadly unworthy memorial to a small and unfortunate child. 


As a historical record Kate McCann's Madeleine is, as we have seen, self-serving and actively resistant to the truth.


 It is worthless.
