En sept courts récits, LeClézio brosse le portrait d'une galerie de personnages d'ici et d'ailleurs, de la grande ville moderne ou du désert. Avec Pervenche, Eva, Kalima, Samaweyn, il est question de la mort et de la peur de la solitude, des doux rêves de l'enfance, de l'amour de la liberté et des désillusions de la vie adulte, du désir... Tous ces personnages ont en commu ...more

Le Clézio garde son intérêt vers le destin féminin, ce qui me rappelle, naturellement, de "Printemps et autres saisons". Pourtant, il hisse le drapeau de l'attitude un peu plus négative et nous invite (de nouveau) à une promenade autour du monde. Ses histoires ont leur charme spécifique, étant entourées par l'atmosphère profondément mélancholique, mais elles ne réussissent guère, me semble-t-il, à s'intégrer dans un vrai recueil; elles sont, plutôt, "heurtées" les unes contre les autres, dans le ...more

A novelette and six stories. I'm not sure why he calls them "romances" as they seem to be the same genre as his other collections of "histoires."

The title story takes about about half the book. The title means "Heart burns", which seems to be as odd in French as in English; even the Nobel winner site puts an accent over the final e to make it "Burnt heart". However, the title obviously comes from the Provencal epigraph: "When the mountain burns, everyone is aware, when the heart burns, who is aw

Même lorsque je n'aime pas un livre, je trouve toujours des éléments qui m'ont plu, et qui me donnent du mal à me décider sur un nombre précis d'étoiles. Malheureusement, malgré tous les qualités dans le livre d'un écrivain qui a gagné le prix Nobel, je ne peux que donner une étoile à Coeur brûle. Je n'aime pas le livre.

Ou plutôt--je n'aime pas l'ensemble du livre. C'est une collection de nouvelles, de romances. Bien que certaines nouvelles m'ont assez intéressée et affectée pour que je sens mon

Inimă arsă (și alte romanțe, după cum precizează subtitlul) este o colecție de șapte nuvele de Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio, autorul pe jumătate francez, pe jumătate mauritian, care a primit în 2008 Premiul Nobel pentru Literatură.

Pervenche, Clemence, Eva, Sue, Rosa, Alice, Kalima, Maramu, Sara.

Povestirile lui Le Clézio au ca personaje principale numai femei, privite de cele mai multe ori prin ochi de bărbat – ori cei ascunși ai scriitorului, ori cei ai bărbaților de lângă ele. Niciuna dintre el

Dòng văn học Nobel, mua giá 10K ở hội sách Nhã Nam (giá bìa 30K). Sách hay mà ế. Truyện buồn, số phận các nhân vật hiện lên u uẩn và lững lờ không lối thoát. Hợp thì thích, không hợp chắc buồn ngủ

Ca un buchet de flori uscate, Inimă arsă e o carte recompusă din fragede tăceri capabile să ucidă pendulul. Tăceri care strecoară frigul în tine, precum niște ace muiate-n abisul nerostitelor dureri din copilărie. Grotescul nu are nevoie de supranatural, de morți vii sau demoni ca să-ți scrijelească spaima în oase. Aici realitatea mușcă din tine, moartea se ascunde în asasini și drogați. Aici se spun poveștile copilelor ce aparțin unor popoare nomade cu măști de antilopă și cu aripi de fluture, ...more
