Το Άσχημο Ρύζι Καρολίνα
Ένας συγγραφέας που γράφει για τη ζωή ενός άλλου συγγραφέα. Μια υπέροχη μυθιστορηματική βιογραφία του Μολιέρου που διαβάζεται σαν παραμύθι με πολλές και ενδιαφέρουσες πληροφορίες για το βίο και την πολιτεία του μεγάλου θεατρικού συγγραφέα, αλλά και γενικότερα για τη ζωή των ηθοποιών στη Γαλλία του 17ου αιώνα. Τί εποχές κι εκείνες! Ο Μολιέρος το ερωτεύτηκε το θέατρο. Ήταν αρκετά πλούσιος με πολύ καλές σπουδές και θέση στην αυλή του βασιλιά. Θα μπορούσε να περάσει μια ξέγνοιαστη ζωή στο Παρίσι, αλ ...more

Di solito, per approcciarsi all'autore, si incomincia con Cuore di Cane oppure con Il Maestro e Margherita, ma purtroppo questa non è stata una mia scelta. Da poco ho scoperto la passione per le biografie (sì, mi piace farmi gli affari degli altri). Bulgakov ci presenta la vita di Jean-Baptiste Molière in modo leggero grazie a capitoli molto brevi, i cui titoli inquadrano perfettamente le varie vicende, e non stila puramente un elenco di fatti, ma delinea, in modo molto curato, la Fran

The weakest part of many biographies is the opening. After all, Shakespeare and Lincoln were not actually distinguished by their birth -- or even the first few years of their lives. But you know that this book will be different when it opens with Bulgakov addressing Moliere's midwife, across three centuries, warning her to be careful with the premature infant in her arms and explaining how well he will be remembered all around the world for centuries to come -- more so than Louis XIV even, accor ...more

Mikhail Bulgakov was a novelist and man of the theater (his Black Snow is a pretty savage take on theater types, present even in the freewheeling era of Moscow in the '20s). This is a straight biography of a master, who nonetheless, like Bulgakov, was dependent on patronage -- in Moliere's case it was royal (or at least noble); in Bulgakov's it was the party apparatus, with Stalin at the apex (Stalin took an interest in literary matters unusual for a dictator). This book is a useful reminder of ...more

The Life of Monsieur de Moliere by Mikhail Bulgakov

Moliere seems to have been a fascinating writer, actor and homme du monde.
The French film which made me feel admiration and a terrible likeness for Moliere is explained here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0796335/?...
A magnificent Romain Duris and the equally wonderful Fabrice Luchini act brilliantly in a glorious film, presenting part of the life of Moliere…I presume. It may just be pure artistic license, but I like to imagine a Moliere who was a

مُحكمة تماما. سيرة ذاتية بأسلوب سردي رائع، غنية بالشخوص والمواضيع الجانبية. تقسيمة الفصول كانت جميلة وأضافت عمق كبير للأحداث المختلفة. أسلوب الراوي العليم (الغير عليم) زاد عنصر التشويق لأحداث قد تكون معروفة مسبقا.
Ana Rînceanu
E interesant cum Bulgakov a modificat unele detalii despre viata lui Molière şi i-a transformat căsătoria într-un caz dramatic de incest. Păcat că Bulgakov nu prea a pus mult umor în situaţie, fiindcă refuz să cred că genuiul umorist a lui Molière există numai în piesele sale şi nu în viaţa lui.

I must confess that I read this only because of my ongoing obsession with Mikhail Bulgakov and my curiosity as to why he felt such a kinship with fellow playwright Molière that he would write a book and a play about him, too. But I’m glad I read it, for its skillful immersion of the reader in the France of the 17th century and for introducing me to a writer about whom I knew virtually nothing, having only very vague notions of him as the author of Tartuffe and The Misanthrope.

هي تستحق ٤نجوم ونصف إلى خمسة، العمل متقن تماما، مثير ، عامر بالاحداث حقاً، لم اتوقع ان ٢٨٠ صفحة من موليير مرهقة جدا، العمل مليئ بالاحداث بشكل يذكرني بروايات الواقعية السحرية.

هناك سرد غريب عجيب، حيث الكاتب يخاطب القراءة على غرار: وذهب بطلي الى منطقة فرنسية لا اعرف اسمها لكني سأتأكد من هذه المعلومة قريباً


الرواية تتناول قصة المسرحي موليير الفرنسي، اجواءها قريبة جدا لرواية العطر للذين قرؤوها، تناولها المؤلف بتفصيل دقيق ومضغوط ايضا

A book written by a Ukrainian in Russian about a Frenchman translated into English. I loved learning about Jean-Baptiste Poquelin or more famously known by the mononym Moliere. Bulgakov wrote this biography in a style more similar to a novel than any other biography I have read. I really appreciated this because it turned what is, from my experience with biographies, normally a pleasant educational experience into a book I could hardly put down. I have consistently enjoyed Bulgakov's writing and ...more

محاولة لإعادة كتابة تاريخ موليير، هذه بطريقة ساخرة وسوداء، كل ما في فرنسا هو جزء من الرواية، كما لو كان موليير هو محرّك دمى تتحرك معه شخوص فرنسا كاملة.

يعطي بولغاكوف لنفسه حق إعادة كتابة التاريخ من جديد، فبولغاكوف في هذه الرواية يتحول لصانع حدث من أجل إخراج صورة نهائية ومشتهاة لموليير، صورة الإنسان الذي يسخر من الحياة والتاريخ ويسخّرها لنفسه، فتنحني له، من الجائز للمتتبع لسيرة بولغاكوف أن يقول هو موليير ذاته، أو هو يكتب سيرته بشخص موليير وكل الشخوص الذين وقعوا في وسط الحدث الروائي مجرد استعارات ل

Not too bad

A fairly decent biography of the actor/playwright Moliere. Perhaps he was his worst enemy, in that he should have known the limits to his own abilities and have read his audience better.
The author’s first chapter almost lost me as he waxed and wained too poetic.

lecture interrompue 70 pages avant la fin. je croyais que le roman allait suivre la forme de dialogue à un sens entre le narrateur et la vie de Molière du début et non prendre la forme d'une sorte de biographie.

سيرة حياة ملك المسرح الكوميدي موليير مكتوبة على شكل رواية وباسلوب بولغاكوف الرائع تقسيم الفصول كان محكما والرواة مختلفون لكنه لا يؤثر في السرد كتاب يستحق القراءة

اسلوب الكاتب رائع . مما جعل السيرة مشوقة و رفيعة المستوى. لكن خلفية الكاتب الروائية جعلت سيرته تحتوي على ثغرات .على العموم لو قرأنا الكتاب على انه ارهاصات من حياة موليير .فيمكننا اعتباره كتابا جيدا.

Булгаков с первых страниц показывает Мольера в качестве величайшего из людей, но никак это утверждение не раскрывает. Любое величие рождается в противостоянии с кем-то, хотя бы с безликой массой несостоявшихся соперников. Допустим, Мольер пересмотрел понимание театрального искусства, но как именно? Всего лишь призывал к естественности на сцене? Может иначе Мольер не умел играть? И тут Булгаков сохраняет молчание. Он просто рассказал о жизни замечательного человека, мало уделив внимания его творч ...more

Mir war von "Herrn de Molière" nur ein Theaterstück bekannt, nämlich "Der eingebildete Kranke", dass wirklich sehr sehenswert ist, da man einfach nicht anders kann, als über diese Komödie zu lachen. Ähnlich ergeht es einem bei diesen Buch - bei aller Tragik, die auch in diesem Buch steckt, das von den Rückschlägen, Skandalen und Triumphen von Molière erzählt, kann man doch an manchen Stellen nicht anders als zu schmunzeln. Nichtdestotrotz geht bei die Gesamtaussage dieses Werkes nicht verloren o ...more

Театрален Роман

Започна много мудно и се задържа така малко след средата, където вече започва да става нещо, има действие и тук-там някой комичен елемент за разнообразие.Краят обрича нашият герой на зависимост от театъра и, следователно, на постоянни мъки.
На мен ми остави странен вкус на незавършеност.

Notable libro sobre la vida de Molière, con una buena mezcla de estilos: narrativa, opinión, biografía, ensayo, historia, teatro…, aderezado con su siempre ácido y crítico humor (muy similar al del propio comediógrafo), Bulgákov logra confeccionar una interesante historia. Bien documentado y con un estilo sugestivo y ágil nos hace una detallada semblanza del gran dramaturgo francés, que se puede leer como una amena novela o como un minucioso estudio sobre la vida de M

Having been in a play by Moliere in high-school, the encounter with Bulgakov's biography was a pleasant surprise. It made me remember the hours spent rehearsing, the nervousness on the day of the 'grand premiere', all the details from one of the happiest periods of my life so far. But nonetheless, I also enjoyed Bulgakov's style of writing (particularly the original introduction concerning Moliere's birth). Whether or not 100% accurate, the book was easy to read - truly a delight!

Una biografía de Jean-Baptiste Poquelin (alias Molière) escrita por uno de los grandes de la literatura, Mikhaïl Boulgakov, no puede más que ocasionar que se haga agua el cerebro. En todo caso, a mí no me hizo falta más para motivarme a leer este libro.

I wasn't familiar with Monsieur Moliere history until I read this book. He was a very peculiar person who finds his abilities not in drama, but at comedy plays. Bulgakov's way of writting is delightful.

He studied and briefly practised medicine and, after indigent wanderings through revolutionary Russia and the Caucasus, he settled in Moscow in 1921.
