Pascal Boniface souhaite ici redonner à l'auteur des Anarchistes et de C'est extra toute sa place dans l'histoire de la musique et de la poésie de son temps. Exercice d'admiration, ce livre est aussi une réflexion sur la trajectoire personnelle et les engagements politiques de l'un des plus grands poètes français du xx e siècle. " Il faudra réécrire l'histoire littéraire un peu différemment à cause de Léo Ferré ", proclamait Aragon. Auteur-compositeur-interprète d'exception, souvent éclipsé dans la mémoire collective par Brel ou Brassens, Léo Ferré a pourtant écrit quelques-unes des plus belles chansons du répertoire français – Avec le temps, La Mémoire et la Mer pour les plus connues. Il est aussi celui qui a le plus, et le mieux, mis en musique les autres poètes français, de Baudelaire à Verlaine et Rimbaud, en passant par Apollinaire, Aragon, Rutebeuf et Villon. Sa carrière se serait-elle limitée aux années 1950-1960, elle aurait suffi à faire œuvre. Mais l'histoire de Léo Ferré ne s'arrête pas là : après 68, il renouvelle son répertoire en se produisant avec des groupes de pop, puis dirige des orchestres symphoniques, faisant ainsi découvrir à un jeune public la musique classique. Le chanteur anarchiste connaît alors une véritable renaissance, incarnant beaucoup plus que d'autres l'esprit de la révolte des années 1970. Pascal Boniface redonne ici à l'auteur des Anarchistes et de C'est extra toute sa place dans l'histoire de la musique et de la poésie de son temps. Ce livre est aussi une réflexion sur la trajectoire personnelle et les engagements politiques de l'un des plus grands poètes français du XXe siècle.

David Servan-Schreiber was a neuroscientist on an urgent mission to bring hope and alternatives to those with cancer. Nineteen years after being diagnosed with the disease, an emergency MRI confirmed his greatest fear: his brain cancer had returned. Here, he shares his coming to terms with the news and, with courage and candour, examines his life from the perspective of one who understands that his illness is terminal—nevertheless living every day fully and with purpose. As the author of Anticancer and a doctor who has given hope to millions around the world, Servan-Schreiber frankly acknowledges the ways in which he departed from his own advice. Reaffirming the Anticancer program—nutrition, exercise, rest and meditation—he also weaves in the stories of a number of clinical cases and offers a rebalanced approach, emphasizing certain elements that he himself tended to ignore. Not the Last Goodbye raises many of the most complex and personal questions about how we choose to live and how we prepare for death, striking a delicate balance between the limits of medicine and the hope that sustains us as we confront them.

"Un complot dirige le monde." "L'islam est incompatible avec la démocratie." "Le Brexit est une catastrophe pour l'Union européenne." "Il y a de plus en plus de guerres." Elles traînent dans la presse, sur Internet, parfois vraies mais souvent fausses, les idées reçues sont partout. Même pour parler d’un monde que l’on sait complexe, on peine à s’en défaire ! En expert reconnu des relations internationales, Pascal Boniface s’amuse à répertorier ce prêt-à-penser-le-monde, ces certitudes souvent hexagonales qui nous abusent. Il les confronte à la réalité pour mieux les faire voler en éclats.

« Rien ne doit arrêter le poète, surtout pas le bon goût. » C'est avec empathie que Maurice Frot brosse le portrait du poète anarchiste. Celui qui fut son régisseur- conseiller artistique-chauffeur, mais aussi le dessinateur et l'ami du chanteur le raconte avec tendresse et vérité, dans un parler de titi parisien. Prosateur et romancier, Maurice Frot décrit avec gouaille le génie de ce poète maudit qui sut allier la ferveur musicale au brio littéraire : le chanteur anar ne se promenait jamais sans son gros cahier qu'il appelait « ma banque », et qui était sa boîte à malices ; il considérait les chansons comme une « auberge espagnole ». De « Pépée » à « Vingt ans », en passant par « Ni Dieu ni maître » et « La mémoire et la mer », il a fait de chacune d'elles un poème dont l'équilibre fragile repose sur le bricolage, les collages de plusieurs textes, mais aussi sur le « pain perdu (l'art d'accommoder les restes) ». Dans son style fait de mots crus, d'argot parigot, d'anglais, de préciosité et de poésie pure, le chanteur libertaire gueulait son nihilisme, sa solitude, une forme incandescente de folie et de rage, mais aussi son amour infini. On le suit avec passion dans ses chemins de traverse. Sa vie, son oeuvre sont évoqués par le petit bout de la lorgnette : celle de l'émotion pure et d'une verve de chaque instant. Ce livre est la réédition complétée de Je n'suis pas Léo Ferré (Fil d'Ariane, 2001).

Salue par les surrealistes, reconnu a son epoque a la fois comme un grand interprete et comme un auteur compositeur de premier plan, Ferre est aujourd'hui une reference. Cet essai parcourt dans son foisonnement toute l'oeliguvre de Leo, longue de pres d'un demi-siecle, jusqu'a ses manuscrits inedits: auteur de plus de 300 chansons, il a aussi ecrit de la musique instrumentale, des operas, des pieces de theatre, un roman, des recueils poetiques... Sans s'interdire un regard critique, ce livre s'attache a comprendre le paradoxe Ferre, ou comment, malgre tous les constats d'echec qui la rythment, cetteoeuvre ne cesse de se depasser.

“I'm sick of you punks,” Micaela said. “And I'm warning you now. I'm going to get you for that murder!” In the title story, the Latino community in East L.A. suffers horrible gang-related violence. Children are killed in the crossfire and young people use and sell drugs. But the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl is the last straw for Micaela Clemencia, a local teacher. With the help of other women in the neighborhood, Micaela keeps her promise to punish the murderer. And much to the dismay of the police and other city officials, the women take control of the barrio, their “little nation.” While some characters face a violent world driven by greed, others long for a sense of belonging or a place to call their own. In “Mama Concha,” a grandmother shares her ancient wisdom with her grandson, teaching him to appreciate the land and the fruits and vegetables she grows. In “The Gardens of Versailles,” a home with beautiful gardens is a local favorite, until it stands in the way of “progress” that will benefit the entire community. And in “Prickles,” an artist who is a grotesque oddity because of the thorny tumors that sprout all over his body develops a special, unusual relationship with the Virgin of Guadalupe. Alejandro Morales returns to his native Southern California community of Montebello in four of these five stories. Originally written in Spanish, this volume includes the first-ever English translation of these thought-provoking stories, in which Morales explores the Chicano community's marginalization and search for a space to call its own.
Schubert's Winter Journey

Schubert's Winter Journey

Author: Ian Bostridge
Publisher: Vintage
ISBN: 0307961648
Pages: 528
Year: 2015-01-27
An exploration of the world’s most famous and challenging song cycle, Schubert's Winter Journey (Winterreise), by a leading interpreter of the work, who teases out the themes—literary, historical, psychological—that weave through the twenty-four songs that make up this legendary masterpiece. Completed in the last months of the young Schubert’s life, Winterreise has come to be considered the single greatest piece of music in the history of Lieder. Deceptively laconic—these twenty-four short poems set to music for voice and piano are performed uninterrupted in little more than an hour—it nonetheless has an emotional depth and power that no music of its kind has ever equaled. A young man, rejected by his beloved, leaves the house where he has been living and walks out into snow and darkness. As he wanders away from the village and into the empty countryside, he experiences a cascade of emotions—loss, grief, anger, and acute loneliness, shot through with only fleeting moments of hope—until the landscape he inhabits becomes one of alienation and despair. Originally intended to be sung to an intimate gathering, performances of Winterreise now pack the greatest concert halls around the world. Drawing equally on his vast experience performing this work (he has sung it more than one hundred times), on his musical knowledge, and on his training as a scholar, Bostridge teases out the enigmas and subtle meanings of each of the twenty-four lyrics to explore for us the world Schubert inhabited, his biography and psychological makeup, the historical and political pressures within which he became one of the world’s greatest composers, and the continuing resonances and affinities that our ears still detect today, making Schubert’s wanderer our mirror.

This edited collection explores the ways in which our understanding of the past in Dutch history and culture can be rethought to consider not only how it forms part of the present but how it can relate also to the future. Divided into three parts – The Uses of Myth and History, The Past as Illumination of Cultural Context, and Historiography in Focus – this book seeks to demonstrate the importance of the past by investigating the transmission of culture and its transformations. It reflects on the history of historiography and looks critically at the products of the historiographic process, such as Dutch and Afrikaans literary history. The chapters cover a range of disciplines and approaches: some authors offer a broad view of a particular period, such as Jonathan Israel's contribution on myth and history in the ideological politics of the Dutch Golden Age, while others zoom in on specific genres, texts or historical moments, such as Benjamin Schmidt’s study of the doolhof, a word that today means ‘labyrinth’ but once described a 17th-century educational amusement park. This volume, enlightening and home to multiple paths of enquiry leading in different directions, is an excellent example of what a past-present doolhof might look like.

Year: 2016-05-03
The definitive Paul McCartney biography, written with his approval by bestselling biographer Philip Norman. Since the age of twenty-one, Paul McCartney has lived one of the ultimate rock-n-roll lives played out on the most public of stages. Now, Paul's story is told by rock music's foremost biographer, with McCartney's consent and access to family members and close friends who have never spoken on the record before. PAUL McCARTNEY reveals the complex character behind the façade and sheds new light on his childhood--blighted by his mother's death but redeemed by the father who introduced him to music. This is the first definitive account of Paul's often troubled partnership with John Lennon, his personal trauma after the Beatles' breakup, and his subsequent struggle to get back to the top with Wings--which nearly got him murdered in Africa and brought him nine days in a Tokyo jail. Readers will learn about his marriage to Linda, including their much-criticized musical collaboration, and a moving account of her death. Packed with new information and critical insights, PAUL MCCARTNEY will be the definitive biography of a musical legend.
