Download E-books Les enfants naturels PDF

By Jacques Audiberti

Jacques Audiberti (1899-1956) fut greffier et journaliste de faits-divers. Influencé par Mallarmé et Breton, c'est un artificier du langage. Il en a utilisé toutes les ressources dans une oeuvre nombreuse ou l'on trouve poésies : L'Empire et l. a. Trappe, Race des hommes, los angeles Nouvelle Origine ; romans : Abraxas, Monorail, Des Jardins et des fleuves, et surtout du théâtre : L'Ampélour, Le Mal courtroom, Le Cavalier seul, L'Effet Glapion, l. a. Logeuse. Les historiettes de L'Opéra du monde ont été rééditées en Cahiers Rouges. Quand Jacques Audiberti dresse los angeles généalogie des enfants naturels, il refait le monde dans un livre qui ressemble à une pochette-surprise. Si Dieu est un enfant naturel, Adam, « dont on trouva un spécimen, connu sous le nom de primate des Gaules, jusque dans los angeles Haute-Marne, à Colombey », en est un autre. Sans oublier Joseph et Marie, et Jeanne d'Arc, « tout entière métissage météorique et double passeport ». Plus près de nous, Audiberti retouche le portrait des fils « parfaits, absolus », ces « orphelins phosphorescents » nommés Drieu los angeles Rochelle, Malraux, Montherlant, Aragon. Au rayon de l'état-civil spirituel, Paul Valéry « paraît être né, tout cuit, de Mallarmé qui eût fait l'amour avec los angeles charmante Racine », Mauriac a pour mom and dad Maine de Biran et François de revenues, Jean Genet descend d'Orphée et d'Elisée-Reclus, Breton a hérité de Bossuet, et Sartre a « l'aveugle acharnement sans humour » de Pascal. On l'a compris, Les Enfants naturels (1956) est une fête de l'esprit, du gratuit ; les mots dansent, c'est un jeu de rôles lexical. Derrière ce joyeux désordre se profile une réflexion sur le temps, une pensée agile, risquée, restituant les pleins pouvoirs à l. a. mythologie. Fantaisie chez Audiberti rime avec poésie.

Download E-books Den ensamme vandrarens drömmerier PDF

By Jean-Jacques Rousseau

"Så är jag då ensam i världen; jag har varken broder, släkting, vän eller sällskap, ingen annan än mig själv."

Den ensamme vandrarens drömmerier blev Rousseaus sista verk, han hann inte ens fullborda det, males det har helt och hållet karaktären av en avslutning och avsked. Det är en slagen och bruten guy som talar, en melankolisk drömmare som har dragit sig bort ifrån världen. males Rousseaus promenader rymmer också naturbeskrivningar och botaniska exkursioner som är ingenting annat än poesi.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) grundlade sin berömmelse då han i 40-årsåldern debuterade som författare, och hans skrifter har kommit att utöva ett stort inflytande på eftervärlden. below sin livstid blev Rousseau både ärad och hatad, förföljd och uppskattad.
