The spirit of Mediterranean places by Michel Butor( Book )

2 editions published between 1962 and 1994 in German and French and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gathers French writer Michel Butor's essays on his travels in the Mediterranean. Included are pieces on Cordova, Istanbul, Salonica, Delphi, Mallia in Crete, and Ferrara and Mantua in northern Italy. There is an extended essay on Egypt, where, when Butor was twenty-four, he spent a year teaching French in a secondary school in a provincial city. Far from the bland comments on the landscapes by an enchanted walker, inspired by memories, Butor digresses on the history and the literature of the places that he visits. He raises what he calls "geographical criticism" to the rank of art, never forgetting that cities are not miracles of nature but the masterpieces of men. Emperors built palaces where conquerors had previously destroyed them. Sculptors erected statues and writers wrote books. Michel Butor registers these as a part of the memory of place. Butor went on to become one of the leading exponents of the avant-garde writing that emerged in France in the 1950s

Dès la première phase, vous entrez dans ce livre, ce livre que vous écrivez en le lisant et que vous finirez par ramasser sur la banquette du train qui vous a conduit de Paris à Rome, non sans de multiples arrêts et détours. Le troisième roman de Michel Butor, paru en 1957, la même année que la jalousie d'Alain Robbe-Grillet, le vent de Claude Simon et Tropismes de Nathalie Sarraute, reçut d'emblée un excellent accueil de la critique. Couronné par le prix Renaudot, traduit dans vingt langues, c'est encore aujourd'hui le plus lu des ouvrages du Nouveau Roman

Degrés; roman by Michel Butor( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Tuesday, October 12, 1954, Pierre Vernier, a teacher in a Paris lycee, begins writing what he wants to be the complete record of his life, his students, and his fellow teachers. He begins by meticulously documenting the facts he already knows about his students - their names, ages, the relationships among them, and the books they're studying. Then he enlists his nephew - a student in his class - to report on the private lives of the other boys. He then studies the school manuals for every subject and class these students are taking - for to record all reality, he must know all that has passed, is passing, and will pass through his students' minds." "But Vernier finds that the core of what he actually knows is useless unless he can spin around it a concentric web of larger suppositions, endowed with varying "degrees" of truth. Relying on his nephew's information, he writes Part Two of his manuscript as if it were being written by his nephew. Finally, in Part Three, the raw material of life overwhelms his delicate literary structure, thus exposing the impossibility of his obsession and the damaging effect this obsession has on both himself and those who surround him."--Jacket
