Omtale fra forlaget

I DISSE FORTELLINGENE rendyrker Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) det mytiske aspektet ved sin litteratur, og henter frem typiske eventyrmotiv: ynglingen som forlater fellesskapet, som møter fremmede og settes på prøve i en drømmeaktig verden av fjell, elver og fergemenn, konger og vismenn, blomster og fugler, metamorfoser og fantastiske tildragelser. males der den klassiske eventyrhelten ender opp med å vende tilbake til sin hjemlige verden, er Hesses skikkelser stort sett overlatt til seg selv og til det fremmede: Det er sjelens ensomme kamp som settes i scene hos Hesse.

Så nær som ett ble alle disse eventyrene til i perioden omkring første verdenskrig, da Hesse også gjennomgikk et psykisk sammenbrudd. På bakgrunn av en generell undergangsstemning uttrykker Hesses eventyr en higen etter absolutt renhet, en lengsel etter foreningen av det skjønne og det gode, og en flukt lodge i et fullkomment vakkert univers bakenfor vår kaotiske virkelighet.

Download e-book for kindle: Les départs exemplaires by Gabrielle Wittkop

By Gabrielle Wittkop

ISBN-10: 2070138267

ISBN-13: 9782070138265

Ce recueil de nouvelles assassines de Gabrielle Wittkop nous présente, à travers siècles et continents, cinq récits baroques qui sont autant de « départs exemplaires ». Au coeur d’un burg romantique allemand, perchée sur une travel en ruine et livrée aux corbeaux, une jeune femme de bonne famille agonise, devenue l’objet d’un fait divers absurde et lugubre. Un dimanche d’octobre dans une ruelle de Baltimore, un écrivain aux yeux noirs succombe, ivre mort, après avoir perdu sa valise. Dans un ny contemporain, l. a. vie de Seymour M Kenneth ressemble à une lente descente aux enfers ; il s’éteint en vagabond dans les entrailles de los angeles ville. C’est dans un fossé moite de l. a. jungle malaise que s’achève mystérieusement celle de Mr T, esthète et espion, emportant avec lui ses derniers secrets and techniques. Enfin, dans l’atmosphère sadienne du XVIIIe siècle français, Claude et Hippolyte, les deux jumeaux hermaphrodites mis au monde par los angeles comtesse de Saint-Effroy, sont assassinés.
La mort est au coeur des cinq nouvelles – dont deux inédites : « Les Derniers secrets and techniques de Mr T. » et
« Claude et Hippolyte » – qui composent cette réédition augmentée des Départs exemplaires. Elle
est organique, marque les corps, s’imprime dans les chairs des femmes élégantes, des monstres
androgynes et des dandys rongés par l’alcool ; elle est destin ou hasard malchanceux, meurtre ou
énigme, guidant vies et intrigues de ces fictions taillées sur mesure ; elle se lit dans les signes et
augures quasi fétichisés – papillons ou corbeaux, perles de grenat, bottines vernies – et engendre le
charme vénéneux de l’esthétique de Wittkop, son ton macabre et raffiné, de nos jours inégalé. Au fil d’une prose ornée et mordante, précise et précieuse, dont l. a. tonalité varie en fonction des époques et des décors abordés, l. a. mort fait aussi mystère. Elle fait pencher successivement ces textes « caractérisés par los angeles découverte et le malentendu », vers le fantastique ou l’enquête – c’est bien la
silhouette d’Edgar Poe qui se faufile dans « Les Nuits de Baltimore » et celle d’un agent de l. a. CIA
en Asie derrière ce curieux Mr T. – ou vers le conte légendaire comme cette femme, cheveux au
vent, criant au sommet d’une journey allemande qui rappelle des esquisses de Goya ou de Hugo. Le
recueil, d’une uniqueness unité thématique, semble donc décrire, par l’exemplarité des destins et los angeles edition des décors, l. a. permanence d’anciens mythes monstrueux et dérangeants. Ultime strength de ce livre, l. a. narratrice (ou l’auteur) mène voluptueusement les drames et personnages à leur variety tragique, irréversible. Mais si le kind s’acharne avec cruauté, non sans humour et un definite goût du supplice, ces victimes expiatoires sont aussi l’occasion de questionner los angeles nature du lien entre vie, trépas et beauté qu’avaient proclamée le romantisme noir ainsi que les esthétiques du XIXe siècle dandy. Ces références constituent alors le fondement spectral de l’art de Gabrielle Wittkop, qui les met à distance pour s’imposer comme une « Peintre de l. a. mort » résolument moderne.
