Lawrence d'Arabie, ou, Le rêve fracassé by Benoist-Méchin( Book )

"Si Thomas Edward Lawrence (1888-1935) a été tour à tour archéologue, explorateur, agent secret, combattant, stratège, diplomate, écrivain et poète, ces activités n'ont été que les manifestations extérieures et successives d'une même obsession, d'un rêve éveillé. Un rêve de bâtisseur d'empire qui a poussé l'auteur des Sept Piliers de la sagesse sur les routes de l'Orient, d'Oxford au Caire et de Djiddah à Damas. Lorsque ce rêve s'est brisé, lorsqu'il a estimé trahie par son propre pays et par les Alliés la révolte arabe à laquelle il s'était voué, " il ne lui est plus rien resté, écrit l'auteur, que le désespoir, l'avilissement et cette implacable volonté d'autodestruction au terme de laquelle la mort est venue le fracasser au guidon de sa motocyclette ". Benoist-Méchin s'est placé au coeur de son héros pour retracer la trajectoire unique et explorer la conscience de ce personnage exaltant et tragique
