LES FLEURS DU MAL
LE LIVRE DE POCHE, 1999

Resumen del libro

A vec Les Fleurs du Mal commence la poésie moderne : le lyrisme subjectif s'efface devant cette « impersonnalité volontaire » que Baudelaire a lui-même postulée ; la nature et ses retours cycliques cèdent la place au décor urbain et à ses changements marqués par l'Histoire, et il arrive que l e poète accède au beau par l'expérience de la laideur. Quant au mal affiché dès le titre du recueil, s'il nous apporte la preuve que l'art ici se dénoue de la morale, il n'en préserve pas moins la profonde spiritualité des poèmes. D'où la stupeur que Baudelaire put ressentir quand le Tribunal de la Seine condamna la première édition de 1857 pour « outrage à la morale publique et aux bonnes moeurs » et l'obligea à retrancher six pièces du volume - donc à remettre en cause la structure du recueil qu'il avait si précisément concertée. En 1861, la seconde édition fut augmentée de trente-cinq pièces, puis Baudelaire continua d'écrire pour son livre d'autres poèmes encore. Mais après la censure, c'est la mort qui vint l'empêcher de donner aux Fleurs du Mal la forme définitive qu'il souhaitait - et que nous ne connaîtrons jamais. Préface d'Yves Bonnefoy. Edition de John E. Jackson. ... Leer resumen completo

Lo avevamo lasciato con una domanda: riuscirò mai a tornare lì, dove solo gli innamorati vivono, tre metri sopra il cielo? E le risposte stanno per arrivare. È questo il seguito di "Tre metri sopra il cielo". Perché nessuna storia finisce mai davvero. E a volte si trasforma in ciò che non avresti mai potuto immaginare. Step è partito e sta per tornare. Sta per scoprire che niente è mai uguale a come lo avevi lasciato. O meglio, a come ricordavi che fosse. Così tutto cambia e rivela la sua vera faccia.

It begins with a letter ...The letter contains a request - think of a number, any number - and a sealed envelope. Inside the envelope is that number. When Dave Gurney, retired NYPD homicide detective, is contacted by an old college acquaintance about some startling letters he's been receiving, it is at first little more tha n a diverting but sinister puzzle. Until the acquaintance is brutally killed. Suddenly Gurney finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation that makes no sense. The killer seems to have known his victim intimately.

Fecha Lanzamiento: 31/10/1997
HARPERCOLLINS PUB.

Resumen del libro

First volume of a brilliant new fantasy trilogy: the most powerful, original and absorbing new epic since Stephen Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. The first volume of George R R Martin's glorious high fantasy tells the tragic story of treachery, greed and war that threatens the unity of the Seven Kingdoms south of the Wall. Martin unfolds with astonishing skill a tale of truly epic dimensions, thronged with memorable characters, a story of treachery and ambition, love and magic. Set in a fabulous world scarred by battle and catastrophe over 8000 years of recorded history, it tells of the deeds of men and women locked in the deadliest of conflicts and the terrible legacy they will leave their children. In the game of thrones, you win or you die. And in the bitter-cold, unliving lands beyond the Wall, a terrible winter gathers and the others -- the undead, the neverborn, wildlings to whom the threat of the sword is nothing -- make ready to descend on the realms of men. A Game of Thrones begins the most imaginative, ambitious and compelling fantasy epic since The Lord of the Rings. Thronged with memorable characters, it unfolds with astonishing skill a tale of truly epic dim ... Leer resumen completo

LA PESTE
GALLIMARD, 2008

Resumen del libro

« C'est moi qui remplace la peste », s'écriait Caligula, l'empereur dément. Bientôt, la « peste brune » déferlait sur l'Europe dans un grand bruit de bottes. France déchirée aux coutures de Somme et de Loire, troupeaux de prisonniers, esclaves voués par millions aux barbelés et aux crématoires, La Peste éternise ces jours de ténèbres, cette « passion collective » d'une Europe en folie, détournée comme Oran de la mer et de sa mesure. Sans doute la guerre accentue-t-elle la séparation, la maladie, l'insécurité. Mais ne sommes-nous pas toujours plus ou moins séparés, menacés, exilés, rongés comme le fruit par le ver ? Face aux souffrances comme à la mort, à l'ennui des recommencenments, La Peste recense les conduites ; elle nous impose la vision d'un univers sans avenir ni finalité, un monde de la répétition et de l'étouffante monotonie, où le drame même cesse de paraître dramatique et s'imprègne d'humour macabre, où les hommes se définissent moins par leur démarche, leur langage et leur poids de chair que par leurs silences, leurs secrètes blessures, leurs ombres portées et leurs réactions aux défis de l'existence. La Peste sera donc, au gré des interprétations, la « chronique de la résistance » ou un roman de la permanence, le prolongement de L'Étranger ou « un progrès » sur L'Étranger, le livre des « damnés » et des solitaires ou le manuel du relatif et de la solidarité - en tout cas, une œuvre pudique et calculée qu'Albert Camus douta parfois de mener à bien, au cours de sept années de gestation, de maturation et de rédaction difficiles... ...

1984
Fecha Lanzamiento: 08/02/2007
SIGNET. PENGUIN PUTMAN, 1990

Resumen del libro

The year is 1984; the scene is London, largest population center of Airstrip One. Airstrip One is part of the vast political entity Oceania, which is eternally at war with one of two other vast entities, Eurasia and Eastasia. At any moment, depending upon current alignments, all existing records show either that Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia and allied with Eastasia, or that it has always been at war with Eastasia and allied with Eurasia. Winston Smith knows this, because his work at the Ministry of Truth involves the constant "correction" of such records. "'Who controls the past,' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'" In a grim city and a terrifying country, where Big Brother is always Watching You and the Thought Police can practically read your mind, Winston is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. He knows the Party's official image of the world is a fluid fiction. He knows the Party controls the people by feeding them lies and narrowing their imaginations through a process of bewilderment and brutalization that alienates each individual from his fellows and deprives him of every liberating human pursuit from reasoned inquiry to sexual passion. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. ... Leer resumen completo

This book features many of the characters who are well-known: Valjean, the criminal trying to escape his reputation; Javert, the police agent trailing him; the unfortunate Fantine and her daughter, Cosette; the rascally Thenardier; and above all the splendid street urchin, Gavroche. Among the unforgettable descriptions are those of the Paris sewers, the battle of Waterloo and the fighting at the barricades during the July Revolution. There are few more complete, or more vivid, pictures of France at the beginning of the nineteenth century. "Les Miserables" is at once a thrilling narrative and a social document embracing a wider field than any other novel of its time. ... Leer resumen completo

TEACHER MAN
Fecha Lanzamiento: 13/12/2006
HARPERCOLLINS PUB., 2007

Resumen del libro

This is the third memoir from the author of the huge international bestsellers "Angela's Ashes" and "'Tis". In "Teacher Man", Frank McCourt details his illustrious, amusing, and sometimes rather bumpy long years as an English teacher in the public high schools of New York City! Frank McCourt arrived in New York as a young, impoverished and idealistic Irish boy - but one who crucially had an American passport, having been born in Brooklyn. He didn't know what he wanted except to stop being hungry and to better himself. On the subway, he watched students carrying books. He saw how they read and underlined and wrote things in the margin and he liked the look of this very much. He joined the New York Public Library and every night when he came back from his hotel work, he would sit up reading the great novels. Building his confidence and his determination, he talked his way into NYU and gained a literature degree and so began a teaching career that was to last 30 years, working in New York's public high schools.Frank estimates that he probably taught 12,000 children during this time and it is on this relationship between teacher and student that he reflects in "Teacher Man", the third in his series of memoirs. The New York high school is a restless, noisy and unpredictable place and Frank believes that it was his attempts to control and cajole these thousands of children into learning and achieving something for themselves that turned him into a writer. At least once a day someone would put up their hand and shout 'Mr. McCourt, Mr. McCourt, tell us about Ireland, tell us about how poor you were!' Through sharing his own life with these kids, he learnt the power of narrative storytelling, and out of the invaluable experience of holding 12,000 people's attention came "Angela's Ashes". Frank McCourt was a legend in such schools as Stuyvesant High School - long before he became the figure he is now he would receive letters from former students telling him how much his teaching influenced and inspired them - and now in "Teacher Man" he shares his reminiscences of those 30 years and reveals how they led to his own success with "Angela's Ashes" and "'Tis". ...

THE SHORT SECOND LIFE OF BREE TANNER: AN ECLIPSE NOVELLA
Fecha Lanzamiento: 08/06/2010
LITTLE BROWN AND COMPANY, 2010

Resumen del libro

Fans of the Twilight Saga will be enthralled by the riveting story of Bree Tanner, a newborn vampire introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery and romance, the novella chronicles the newborn vampire armys journey as they prepare to close in o n Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion.The novella was originally conceived as a short story for The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide. Im as surprised as anyone about this novella, said Stephenie Meyer. It was simply an exercise to help me examine the other side of Eclipse. I thought the Guide would be a good fit for my Bree story. However, the story grew longer than I anticipated. The character Bree not only features prominently in the book Eclipse, but in the upcoming movie The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which will be released in South Africa on 30 June 2010. Director David Slade, who read a draft of the novella in preparation for filming, said, I think fans are going to love the fascinating details involved in the loves, fears and actions of an emerging vampire. ...

FELTRINELLI EDITORIALE, 2010

Resumen del libro

Caino è protagonista e voce narrante. È lui che racconta della blasfema convivenza fra Eva e il cherubino Azaele, l'assassinio del fratello Abele e il suo successivo dialogo filosofico con dio, la maledizione, il marchio e l'incontro con l'insaziabile Lilith nella città di Nod. E attraverso i suoi occhi che assistiamo al sacrificio di Isacco, alla costruzione della Torre di Babele, alla distruzione di Sodoma. E lui che dialoga con Mosé in attesa sul monte Sinai e che vede nascere l'identità israelita, fino a un ultimo duro confronto con dio. Se nel Vangelo secondo Gesù Cristo José Saramago ci ha regalato la sua visione del Nuovo Testamento, con Caino irrompe l'Antico, e ancora una volta Saramago, dichiaratamente non credente, rivendica il diritto a dire la sua in materia di religione. E lo fa, anche questa volta, a voce ben alta, con quella sua inconfondibile ironia capace di trasformare in sublime letteratura la storia di un Caino che accetta, si, il proprio castigo per l'uccisione di Abele e il destino di errante, ma, insieme, insorge contro un dio crudele e sanguinario che considera corresponsabile. E a questo dio che Saramago, per voce di Caino, chiede spiegazioni, per affermare ancora una volta che "la storia degli uomini è la storia dei loro fraintendimenti con dio, perché lui non capisce noi, e noi non capiamo lui". ...

EMMA
Fecha Lanzamiento: 26/11/2004
BROADVIEW, 2004

Resumen del libro

Jane Austen's Emma (1816) tells the story of the coming of age of Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, who had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her. Typical for the novel's time, Emma's transition to womanhood is accomplished through courtship - both of those around her a nd, ultimately, her own. As in other Austen works, education and courtship go hand in hand, and Emma's process of learning to relinquish the power of having her own way is also a process of falling in love. However, in Emma this classic plot is both complicated by and reflective of a collection of contemporary issues, assumptions, and anxieties that highlight just how political even the most conventional of courtship plots can be. This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction and an extensive collection of historical documents relating to the composition and reception of the novel, the social implications of England's shift from a rural agrarian to an urban industrial economy, the role of women in provincial society, and the contemporary preoccupation with health and the treatment of illness. ...

BLOOD AND GOLD
BALLANTINE BOOKS (RANDOM), 2002

Resumen del libro

Time heals all wounds, unless, of course, you're a vampire. Cuts may heal, burns vanish, limbs reattach, but for the "blood god," the wounds of the heart sometimes stay open and raw for centuries. So it is for Marius, Anne Rice's oft-mentioned and beloved scholar. We've heard parts of his tale in past volumes of the Vampire Chronicles, but never so completely and never from his own lips. In Blood and Gold, Rice mostly (but not entirely) avoids the danger of treading worn ground as she fills out the life and character of Marius the Lonely, the Disenchanted, the Heartsick--a 2,000-year-old vampire "with all the conviction of a mortal man." Plucked from his beloved Rome in the prime of his life and forced into solitude as keeper of the vampire queen and king, Marius has never forgiven the injustice of his mortal death. Thousands of years later, he still seethes over his losses. Immortality for Marius is both a blessing and a curse--he bears "witness to all splendid and beautiful things human," yet is unable to engage in relationships for fear of revealing his burden. New readers to the Chronicles may wish for a more fleshed-out, less introspective hero, but Rice's legions of devoted fans will recognize Blood and Gold for what it is: a love song to Marius the Wanderer, whose story reveals the complexities and limitations of eternal existence. --Daphne Durham --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. ...
