"Je ne jalouse pas ces pompeux imbéciles Qui s'extasient devant le terrier d'un lapin Car la nature est laide, ennuyeuse et hostile ; Elle n'a aucun message à transmettre aux humains." Maîtrisant à la perfection la forme classique sans toutefois s'embarrasser des modes, Michel Houellebecq met en scène dans ses poèmes un quotidien à la fois contemporain et urbain. Ses vers...more

"Gli abitanti del Sole lanciano su di noi uno sguardo impassibile: apparteniamo definitivamente alla Terra

e ci marciremo, mio impossibile amore,

mai i nostri corpi straziati diverranno luce."




Tutto quello che c'è da sapere su M. Houellebecq. Questo libro raccoglie la sua prima variegata produzione degli anni '90: i suoi prime due scritti ("restare vivi" e l'antologia di poesie "la ricerca della felicità"), una serie di "interventi" (in cui parla di tutto: di filosofia, di letteratura, arte, inform...more

Houellebecq's poetry is even more damning of society as a whole than his novels.

Alexandrins and sonnets oppose themselves starkly to the hypermodern setting and überdepressive "message" hammered through by the author.

In the end, the "Pursuit of happiness" is just as futile as the pursuit of beauty in modern poetry, and in the modern world.

L'entretien de Houllebecq avec la nature colore tous ces poemes. Ayant écrit beaucoup de vers sur la malaise qu'elle se pose, en effet ces poemes montrent comment il la considere comme determinant notre vie. Il n'est pas un grand poete, c'est sure, mais Houllebecq tient un voix authentique, meme s'il est trop pretentieux la plupart de temps.

La prima parte in versi è proprio brutta, la seconda modesta, con qualche poesia che spicca, ma era anche facile capitasse.
L’intermezzo in prosa rimane in linea con la media del libro, niente di notevole, salvo un paio di episodi.

Michel Houellebecq (born Michel Thomas), born 26 February 1958 (birth certificate) or 1956 on the French island of Réunion, is a controversial and award-winning French novelist. To admirers he is a writer in the tradition of literary provocation that reaches back to the Marquis de Sade and Baudelaire; to detractors he is a peddler of sleaze and shock. Having written poetry and a biography of the h...more
