Été 1793, los angeles Révolution française s'enfonce dans l. a. Terreur et los angeles Vendée se soulève. Ils sont trois : le marquis de Lantenac, vieil aristocrate chevillé à l'ordre ancien ; l'implacable Cimourdain, homme du peuple et de los angeles justice révolutionnaire ; et le clément Gauvain, noble moveé à l. a. République, neveu du most efficient et fils spirituel du second... Dans le nœud sanglant des événements, leur lien, fatalement, va se défaire, leurs destins s'affronter violemment. Par conviction de rang, par raison, ou par idéal – une certaine idée de l. a. loyauté qui conduira chacun à l'héroïsme, ou à los angeles mort.

Écrite dans l'écho de los angeles Commune de 1871, cette fresque épique et tourmentée est le dernier roman de Victor Hugo. C'est une imaginative and prescient de l'Histoire, sans partisannerie, où le retour de l. a. violence n'interdit pas l'espérance. Une ultime tribune, empreinte des préoccupations sociales et humanistes du poète légendaire, et une bold invitation à relire son œuvre puissante.

New PDF release: Les Amours jaunes (Classiques) (French Edition)

By Tristan Corbière

ISBN-10: 2253160830

ISBN-13: 9782253160830

Edition enrichie (Préface, notes, file sur l'oeuvre, chronologie et bibliographie)

« On peut aimer jaune comme on rit jaune », disait André Breton des poèmes de Corbière pour souligner leur dissonance majeure. Et ce sont bien, en effet, les fausses souffrances et les fausses grandeurs qui sont ici tournées en dérision par un poète qui s'éloigne de sa propre snapshot et, de soi à soi, vient creuser l. a. plus grande distance. L'écriture s'ouvre ainsi à l. a. parodie qui dénonce l'imposture des formes, et à toutes les ressources d'un jeu verbal où l'ironie dit amèrement los angeles discordance de vivre. Lorsqu'il paraît en 1873, le recueil ne rencontre guère d'écho. Un an plus tard, tout jeune encore, son auteur meurt, et ç'aura été son seul livre. Mais en faisant de Corbière, dix ans plus tard, un de ses « poètes maudits », Verlaine ouvre une nouvelle carrière aux Amours jaunes dont le héros de Huysmans, des Esseintes, apprécie de son côté, dans A rebours, los angeles veine excentrique et cocasse. Après quoi, les surréalistes situeront Corbière à sa véritable hauteur en faisant de lui, à côté de Rimbaud et de Lautréamont, l'artisan d'une révolution poétique essentielle.
