Henrik Ibsen: Mennesket og masken

By Ivo de Figueiredo

Ivo de Figueiredos tobindsbiografi om Henrik Ibsen - "Mennesket" og "Masken" (2006/2007) - ble en kritikersuksess av de sjeldne. I biografien forener han den gode fortellingen med historikerens grundighet. Ibsens liv og litterære verk blir sett i sammenheng med det norske og europeiske samfunnet som skapte ham - og som han i sin tur var med å forme.
Med "Henrik Ibsen. Mennesket og masken" blir fortellingen om Ibsen samlet i ett bind. Biografien er revidert og forkortet og dermed lettere tilgjengelig for et større publikum. Samtidig vil også denne utgaven være en standardbiografi for studenter og alle litteraturinteresserte lesere.

«Ibsen-biografien står i stil med objektet: uovertruffen ... Dette er stor, norsk sakprosa ... mesterlig gjennomført.»
Tom Egil Hverven, Klassekampen

«Med en grundighet og en lærdom som tar pusten fra en, kommer han med en fortelling som virker både troverdig og manhattan, og velskrevet.»

Theatre complet - Tome 3

By Jean Giraudoux

De 1928, date des premières représentations de Siegfried, à sa mort, en janvier 1944, Jean Giraudoux a écrit une quinzaine de pièces de théâtre qui font de lui, avec Claudel, l'auteur français le plus very important de los angeles première moitié du XXe siècle.
S'il a continué à être joué et lu depuis los angeles guerre, c'est qu'il a été le dernier écrivain à croire que le théâtre faisait partie intégrante de los angeles littérature. Loin de tout réalisme, ce théâtre prolonge jusqu'à nous les prestiges du classicisme français, dont Giraudoux a retrouvé le kind en le teintant d'ironie savante. l. a. tradition, chez lui, ne peut faire oublier son modernisme ni son appartenance à une époque qu'il a voulu placer entre les parenthèses de deux guerres.
Grand créateur de personnages, vus souvent à travers les acteurs prestigieux de l. a. troupe de Jouvet qui les ont interprétés en preferable, Giraudoux se signale à nous non seulement pas los angeles perfection de l'écriture, mais par une sensibilité qui lui fait retrouver, si abstrait et si raffiné soit-il, l. a. réalité des passions. Son humour léger ne l'écarte pas non plus d'une morale du bonheur, où l'éternel féminin joue un rôle de most appropriate plan.
Qu'il utilise les grands thèmes classiques ou qu'il invente des events et des personnages inédits, le théâtre de Giraudoux, plus grave qu'il ne paraît, veut nous réconcilier avec los angeles vie. man Dumur
