Download E-books Cahier Déon PDF

By Laurence Tacou, Michel Déon

Acteur et témoin de plus d’un demi-siècle de vie littéraire, en France et hors de France – où il a résidé le plus souvent –, Michel Déon occupe une position singulière dans l. a. littérature française contemporaine. Par l’amplitude chronologique de son oeuvre tout d’abord (Adieux à Sheila, 1944 - Lettres de château, 2009) et l’extrême variété de ses moyens d’expression : romans, essais, livres de voyage, mais aussi pièces de théâtre, journalisme, critique littéraire et dramatique, scénarios. C’est aussi un grand Européen qui a partagé sa vie entre l. a. Grèce, l’Irlande, le Portugal, l’Italie et los angeles France. L’omniprésence de ces cultures au sein de cette panoplie littéraire hors du commun révèle l’amplitude d’un rêve intérieur qui témoigne d’une curiosité insatiable pour les êtres et l. a. littérature, autant de signes d’une générosité intellectuelle peut-être sans égale dans sa génération.

Ce Cahier se suggest de mettre en viewpoint un grand nombre d’inédits ou de textes rares de Michel Déon, à côté des témoignages d’écrivains et amis : M. Kundera, C. de Rivoyre, F. Marceau, J. d’Ormesson, E. Carrère, F. Vitoux, Y. Reza, P. Morand, A. Blondin... Des correspondances inédites de J. Anouilh, J. Chardonne, S. Leys, okay. Haedens, S. Bellow, J. Cabanis ou F. Mitterrand. Sans s’apesantir en lourdes exégèses, des écrivains et universitaires, français comme étrangers, (M. Serra, X. Darcos, P. Joannon, L. Proguidis ou A.Wilhelm) étudient aussi bien les grands thèmes de l’oeuvre que les constantes de l’imaginaire qui los angeles nourrissent ou les paysages qui l’ont vu naître. Ils font ainsi le aspect sur une oeuvre à l. a. fois très connue et pourtant méconnue dans ses ressorts et ses intentions les moins visibles.
