Concierto barroco by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

22 editions published between 1976 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Venise, pendant le carnaval, un Mexicain déguisé en Moctezuma rencontre Vivaldi. Puis Scarlatti et Händel se joignent à eux pour visiter un couvent de nonnes musiciennes et pour aller prendre un petit déjeuner sur la tombe d'Igor Stravinski. Car les chronologies s'enchevetrent dans ce merveilleus concert baroque où la musique, forme sublimée du temps, mène le récit. Si Vivaldi avait pris sa plume, il n'aurait pas écrit autrement ce Concert Baroque

El aleph by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

14 editions published between 1967 and 2001 in French and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'Aleph restera, je crois, comme le recueil de la maturité de Borges conteur. Ses récits précédents, le plus souvent, n'ont ni intrigue ni personnages. Ce sont des exposés quasi axiomatiques d'une situation abstraite qui, poussée à l'extrême en tout sens concevable, se révèle vertigineuse. Les nouvelles de L'Aleph sont moins roides, plus concrètes. Certaines touchent au roman policier, sans d'ailleurs en être plus humaines. Toutes comportent l'élément de symétrie fondamentale, où j'aperçois pour ma part le ressort ultime de l'art de Borges. Ainsi, dans L'Immortel : s'il existe quelque part une source dont l'eau procure l'immortalité, il en est nécessairement ailleurs une autre qui la reprend. Et ainsi de suite... Borges : inventeur du conte métaphysique. Je retournerai volontiers en sa faveur la définition qu'il a proposée de la théologie : une variété de la littérature fantastique. Ses contes, qui sont aussi des démonstrations, constituent aussi bien une problématique anxieuse des impasses de la théologie. Roger Caillois."--Page 4 de la couverture

Un jeune militant révolutionnaire, pourchassé par ses amis qu'il a trahis, s'est réfugié dans la salle ... Entre les trois coups du début du spectacle et les trois coups de feu de la fin, c'est toute l'époque de la dictature de Batista, prélude à la révolution cubaine de Fidel Castro, qui est évoquée ici, dans un récit poignant, où le lecteur est tenu en haleine d'un bout à l'autre."
