By William Marx
L. a. littérature n'a peut-être jamais été plus mal considérée qu'aujourd'hui. Tous les signes montrent cette fragilisation. Mais plutôt que de s'arrêter à los angeles description d'un mal contemporain dont nul ne doute, ce livre suggest de retrouver les factors profondes de cette baisse d'influence, qui résulte d'une évolution de longue durée. l. a. thèse est uncomplicated : entre le XVIIIe et le XXe siècle eut lieu en Europe une transformation radicale de l. a. littérature ; sa forme, son idée, sa fonction, sa challenge, tout fut bouleversé. Du magnétisme animal aux cultural stories, du elegant selon Boileau au plaisir selon Barthes, du tremblement de terre de Lisbonne au camp d'Auschwitz, de l'apothéose de Voltaire au départ de Rimbaud et aux silences de Beckett, le récit des métamorphoses de l. a. littérature est présenté en une vaste fresque européenne, qui met en évidence un mouvement de bascule conduisant inévitablement du sommet à l'abîme.
Comprendre ce mécanisme de dévalorisation, ce traumatisme de l'adieu, c'est pénétrer au cœur de los angeles crise existentielle permanente où se débat maintenant los angeles littérature. Mais c'est aussi se donner les moyens d'en sortir.

Likewise, intimate engagement with the writings of historians can deepen philosophers’ figuring out of the duty of figuring out the prior.
Je ne prise guère los angeles littérature d’idées. Ses angles droits sont trop fastidieusement masculins et sûrs d’eux pour capter l’émotion, le tremblement, l’inattendu du réel. Pourquoi récidiver ? Parce qu’on résiste moins, avec l’âge, aux impulsions du farfelu, jusqu’à se permettre quelques divagations sur les dieux et les hommes, le beau et le moche, le mort et le vif, et même sur l’avenir de l’humanité.
