Download La carte de l'empire (Pensées simples, Volume 2) by Gérard Macé PDF

By Gérard Macé

La carte de l’empire est un nouveau quantity de Pensées simples (le most efficient a été publié dans los angeles assortment Blanche en 2011). Les réflexions, notes de lectures, souvenirs et anecdotes qu’il rassemble au gré de trois sections pourraient passer pour disparates aux yeux d’un lecteur distrait.

Un principe d’ensemble en émerge néanmoins peu à peu, qui est justement los angeles négation de tout principe d’ensemble. Pour Macé il n’existe pas d’origine, ni de l’homme, ni des langues, ni de l. a. tradition. Tout est affaire de glissements, de déplacements d’un can pay à un autre, d’un sens à un autre, d’un son àl’autre, and so forth. (Un aspect de vue qu’il étaye de très beaux exemples, puisés dans l’œuvre de Rabelais, dans l’histoire du Japon, comme dans Lévi-Strauss.). Pas plus qu’il n’y a d’origine, il n’y a pour lui de centre (le présent manuscrit d’ailleurs n’en a pas). Macé s’exerce à regarder le monde, non depuis l’Europe, mais depuis le Japon, ou l’Afrique. Il met face à face les grands totalitarismes du XXe siècle quand on a l’habitude de les opposer. Il juxtapose les regards de cinéastes aussi différents qu’Ozu et Michael Cimino. Et quand il parle de littérature, il récuse le roman et sa domination, affirmant : los angeles poésie m’a sauvé l. a. mise.

Ces fragments opèrent entre eux et forment un discours de plus en plus internet et pénétrant. Un livre en forme de cupboard de curiosités, patiemment composé par un écrivain flâneur et érudit au goût et au regard très sûrs.
