E' abbastanza difficile dire due parole su questo libro. La prima tentazione sarebbe quella di dirne tutto il male possibile, a causa della sua violenza ceca. Ma proprio la violenza ceca, l'urlo disumano di orrore, l'invettiva, i toni polemici, sono i pregi del libro, che diventa una enorme invocazione di aiuto.
Una invocazione mal posta, un atteggiamento di provocatoria rivolta, eppure l'urlo di un pacifista che teme una nuova guerra, e, tragicamente, rivolge la sua invettiva contro le vittime c

Recommends it for: Céline fans (wake up!)
People change. Writers are people. Céline looked into the face of meaningless and nihilism, and wrote a few great works. He also looked far too long into the abyss. This long suppressed book features him at his most frothy, directing all his existential rage at the Jewish people. He felt they were going to victimize and enslave Gentiles in the coming second world war. The man was so nihilistic, he forecasted the polar opposite of actual events. Many, including Céline & his heirs, would like ...more

Bagatelles pour un massacre conduit une charge d'une grande violence contre les juifs. Le style accusatoire, agressif, elliptique qui forme l'œuvre de Céline, donne ici à son antisémitisme une allure de réquisitoire implacable et d'appel au peuple à agir contre les juifs.

La logique de l'auteur est la suivante : le juif est par nature belliciste (« pousse-au-crime » et « mégalomani[aque] conquérant[] »). Ses desseins : anéantir le peuple chrétien (et/ou « aryen ») au moyen des deux complots ; le

Un livre que j'ai lu en ayant une vague idée quand même de ce qu'il était - étant un inconditionnel d'une partie de l'oeuvre de Celine - pour me faire ma propre opinion sur l'antisémitisme dont il a été accusé, et voir si cela pouvait être soumis à interprétation ? Le constat implacable, c'est que ce pamphlet, car c'en est un sans l'ombre d'un doute, est réellement une incitation à la haine raciale, un amalgame honteux, un mélange de faits, de réalités, noyé dans un tissus d'idées préconçues, de ...more

These antisemitic pamflets are difficult to rate, because I do not agree with their racist content. It is impportant to read them though, if you want to understand his thinking and world view.

Louis-Ferdinand Celine, pen name of Dr. Louis-Ferdinand Destouches, is best known for his works Voyage au bout de la nuit (Journey to the End of the Night), and Mort à crédit (Death on the Installment Plan). His highly innovative writing style using Parisian vernacular, vulgarities, and intentionally peppering ellipses throughout the text was used to evoke the cadence of speech.
