Francesco Guccini - Tralummescuro. Ballata per un paese al tramonto
Italiano | 2019 | 288 pages | ISBN: 880988552X | EPUB | 1,1 MB

"Radici" è il titolo di uno dei primi album di Francesco Guccini, e radici è la parola che forse più di tutte rappresenta il cuore della sua ispirazione artistica. Radici sono quelle che lo legano a Pàvana - piccolo paese tra Emilia e Toscana dove sorge il mulino di famiglia, vera Macondo appenninica ormai viva nel cuore dei lettori - e radici sono quelle che sa rintracciare dentro le parole, giocando con le etimologie fra l'italiano e il dialetto, come da sempre ama fare. Oggi Pàvana è ormai quasi disabitata, i tetti delle case non fumano più. È in questo silenzio che il narratore evoca per noi i suoni di un tempo lontano, in cui la montagna era luogo laborioso e vivo, terra dura ma accogliente per chi la sapeva rispettare. Rinascono così personaggi, mestieri, suoni, speranze: gli artigiani all'opera in paese o lungo il fiume, i primi sguardi scambiati con le ragazze in vacanza, i giochi, gli animali e i frutti della terra, un orizzonte piccolo ma proprio per questo aperto all'infinito della fantasia..

Si l'on conteste la particule et le titre d'Antoine, comte de Rivarol, né à Bagnols-sur-Cèze (Gard) en 1753, personne ne met en cause son esprit, son style, sa finesse, son impertinence et son indépendance de pensée. Le Français par excellence, disait de lui Voltaire qui l'admirait. Il figure au premier rang des hommes les plus spirituels du XVIIIe siècle. …

René Magritte (Critical Lives) by Patricia Allmer
English | September 15th, 2019 | ISBN: 1789141516 | 240 pages | EPUB | 9.83 MB

The Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte redefined the way we think about art. Famous for his men in bowler hats, he inspired generations of later artists from Andy Warhol to Jasper Johns with his witty and provocative work. In this illuminating new biography, Patricia Allmer radically repositions Magritte's work in relation to its historical and cultural circumstances. Allmer explores the significant influence of events and experiences in Magritte's early childhood and youth that are recorded in his letters and essays, including his memories of visiting fairs and circuses, of magical shows and performances, of the cinema, and, in particular, of his first encounter with his future partner, Georgette, on a carousel.

Georges Dumézil, "Entretiens avec Didier Eribon"
Folio | 1987 | ISBN: 2070323986 | Français | EPUB | 224 pages | 0.2 MB

Georges Dumézil a toujours déclaré qu'un savant doit s'effacer derrière son œuvre. D'où son refus constant d'écrire ses mémoires ou de se livrer à la confidence autobiographique. Il a pourtant accepté de se raconter, de faire le récit de sa carrière universitaire, de sa vie intellectuelle et donc de sa vie tout court. Salué depuis de nombreuses années comme l'auteur d'une des œuvres les plus puissantes dans le domaine des sciences humaines, il donne ici de nouveaux éclairages sur son travail et sur les conditions dans lesquelles il s'est développé et imposé. …

François Kersaudy, "Winston Churchill"
Audiolib | 2019 | ASIN: B07MVHNZ4Q | Français | MP3@160 kbps | 25 hrs 56 mins | 1.7 GB

"Nous sommes tous des vers", avait modestement confié le jeune Winston à une amie, "mais je crois que moi, je suis un ver luisant !" Le mot n'est pas trop fort : Alexandre Dumas aurait pu inventer un personnage de ce genre, mais dans le cas de Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, la stricte réalité dépasse de très loin la fiction. Jusqu'à ses 26 ans, les aventures du jeune officier et du reporter évoquent immanquablement celles de Tintin, puis le personnage devient une synthèse de Clemenceau et de De Gaulle, l'humour et l'alcool en plus…
