New PDF release: Madame Bovary

Variation enrichie de Thierry Laget comportant une préface et un file sur le roman.

C'est l'histoire d'une femme mal mariée, de son médiocre époux, de ses amants égoïstes et vains, de ses rêves, de ses chimères, de sa mort. C'est l'histoire d'une province étroite, dévote et bourgeoise. C'est, aussi, l'histoire du roman français. Rien, dans ce tableau, n'avait de quoi choquer l. a. société du moment Empire. Mais, inexorable comme une tragédie, flamboyant comme un drame, mordant comme une comédie, le livre s'était donné une arme redoutable : le variety. Pour ce vrai crime, Flaubert se retrouva en correctionnelle.

Aucun roman n'est blameless : celui-là moins qu'un autre. Lire Madame Bovary, au XXIe siècle, c'est affronter le scandale que représente une œuvre aussi sincère qu'impérieuse. Dans chacune de ses words, Flaubert a versé une dose de cet arsenic dont Emma Bovary s'empoisonne : c'est un livre offensif, corrosif, dont l'ironie outrage toutes nos valeurs, et los angeles littérature même, qui ne s'en est jamais vraiment remise.

Sample text

It is a novel in which, as Holmes would later write, “the words were no longer words, but had become things. ” At the time Holmes read the novel with a kind of angry disbelief. Writing that he sometimes wished Kerouac “would blunt the edge” of his writing so that it might be given the recognition it deserved, Holmes later remembered going out to walk by the East River, cursing Kerouac in my head for writing so well in a book which, I was firmly convinced, would never be published. . I recall that I cursed him, rather than the publishers, or the critics, or the culture itself that was excluding him.

The famous image of Cassady and Ginsberg as “roman candles” is polished and reworked in subsequent drafts. In the scroll Kerouac writes, [Neal and Allen] rushed down the street together digging everything in the early way they had which has later now become so much sadder and perceptive . . but then they danced down the street like dingldodies and I shambled after as usual as I’ve been doing all my life after people that interest me, because the only people that interest me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing .

Nonetheless, tho I blush over its inadequacies, I want you to realize the damn thing took up the better part of three straight Benzidrene afternoons and evenings. ” 22 | HOWARD CUNNELL Kerouac’s response suggests that what most excited him about Cassady’s letter was what he might do with this method. Kerouac sounded at times as if he were talking to himself; as though he were writing rules for a new method he would soon apply. “You gather together all the best styles . . of Joyce, Celine, Dosty & Proust,” he wrote, “and utilize them in the muscular rush of your own narrative style & excitement .
