Download PDF by Philippe Forest: Aragon (Biographies) (French Edition)

By Philippe Forest

ISBN-10: 2070140474

ISBN-13: 9782070140473

Aragon s'est beaucoup raconté, en prose et en vers ; il n'a cessé d'appliquer avec virtuosité le principe du "mentir-vrai" à sa vie riche déjà de tant d'énigmes et de paradoxes : enfant illégitime à qui le mystery de ses origines fut longtemps caché ; antimilitariste décoré de l. a. Grande Guerre puis médaillé de l. a. Résistance ; dandy dadaïste devenu militant discipliné du parti de Staline et de Thorez ; poète surréaliste converti au réalisme socialiste ; homme à femmes – et quelles femmes ! – métamorphosé en chantre de l'amour conjugal, avant de découvrir sur le tard le goût des garçons... Tous ces personnages différents n'en font qu'un seul dont l'itinéraire littéraire, intellectuel et politique transcrit le génie et le chaos du siècle.

Philippe wooded area recompose à nouveaux frais le roman somptueux de cette longue life, avec ses chapitres glorieux et ses pages lugubres. Il révèle le jeu de miroirs par lequel se réfléchissent l'œuvre et los angeles vie d'un écrivain surdoué à qui aucune des formes de l. a. littérature n'était étrangère. Et si cette œuvre proceed à nous toucher, alors que cette vie n'en finit pas de nous déconcerter, c'est qu'elle possède une jeunesse, une insolence, une énergie sur lesquelles le temps n'a guère european de prise.

Aragon a été targeté autant que haï, admiré autant que décrié, à l. a. fois pour de bonnes et de mauvaises raisons. Il ne s'agit dans ces pages ni de l'acquitter ni de le condamner, mais d'en revenir au mystère même de celui dont on a pu dire qu'il avait été sans doute "le dernier des géants de notre temps".

Figura geniale e contraddittoria, dedita ai vizi quanto agli affetti familiari, los angeles storia di De Sica si intreccia con icone del calibro di Luchino Visconti, Totò, Gina Lollobrigida, Sophia Loren, Alberto Sordi. Ma è dal sodalizio con Cesare Zavattini che nel dopoguerra nascono i capolavori che lo consacrano nel pantheon dei grandi registi: Sciuscià, Ladri di biciclette, Miracolo a Milano, Umberto D. raccontano magistralmente gli albori dell’Italia democratica dal punto di vista dei deboli, di coloro che sono tagliati fuori dal cosiddetto “miracolo economico”. E, finita inesorabilmente l. a. stagione del neorealismo, sa reinventarsi mettendo l. a. sua sensibilità artistica al servizio di grandi interpreti e di produzioni come l. a. ciociara, Ieri, oggi, domani e Matrimonio all’italiana. Dando vita a personaggi che hanno saputo raccontare un’Italia tragica e intensa, costantemente sospesa tra los angeles goliardia e l’amarezza.
