Pour Azoth, survivre est une lutte de tous les instants. Le petit rat de la guilde a appris à juger les gens d’un seul coup d’œil et à prendre des risques,comme proposer à Durzo Blint de devenir son apprenti. Mais pour être accepté, il doit commencer par abandonner son ancienne vie, changer d’identité, aborder un monde d’intrigues politiques, d’effroyables dangers et de magies étranges, et sacrifier ce qui lui est le plus précieux...

Les Animaux fantastiques : Les Crimes de Grindelwald - Le texte du film by J.K. Rowling Summary

Le précédent film Les Animaux fantastiques se terminait sur la capture du puissant mage noir Gellert Grindelwald à New York grâce à Norbert Dragonneau. Mais, mettant sa menace à exécution, Grindelwald s'échappe de prison et s'attèle à recruter des partisans, dont la plupart ignorent sa réelle intention : faire régner les sorciers de sang pur sur les êtres non-magiques. Afin de contrecarrer les plans de Grindelwald, Albus Dumbledore fait appel à Norbert, son ancien élève à Poudlard, qui accepte de lui venir en aide, loin d'imaginer les dangers qui l'attendent. Dans ce monde des sorciers de plus en plus divisé, l'amour et la loyauté sont mis à l'épreuve, les amitiés les plus sincères et les liens familiaux ne sont pas épargnés. Le texte de ce deuxième film écrit par J.K. Rowling est illustré par les splendides dessins au trait de MinaLima. On y apprend plus sur les événements antérieurs qui ont façonné le monde des sorciers, et on y trouve de nombreux liens avec la saga Harry Potter, qui réjouiront les fans des livres comme des films.

Le Prince des marées by Pat Conroy,Françoise Cartano Summary

Dans le sillage des grands noms de la littérature du Sud des États-Unis, Pat Conroy s'est imposé en 1986 avec un chef-d'oeuvre, Le Prince des marées, aujourd'hui réédité dans une traduction révisée. Au coeur des somptueux paysages maritimes de la Caroline du Sud, cette « histoire d'eau salée, de bateaux et de crevettes, de larmes et de tempêtes » fouille la mémoire d'une famille troublée, dans un Deep South encore marqué par la ségrégation raciale. Tom, Luke et Savannah Wingo ont été élevés à la dure, entre joies et tragédies, par un père pêcheur de crevettes, alcoolique et violent, et une mère fantasque et mythomane. C'est cette vie-là que va raconter Tom à la psychiatre Susan Lowenstein après la énième tentative de suicide de sa soeur, désormais installée à New York. Pour aider la thérapeute à sauver Savannah, Tom accepte de se replonger dans les souvenirs d'une enfance marquée par un terrible secret. Ses confessions, empreintes d'humour et d'émotion, vont faire revivre la bouleversante saga du clan Wingo. Eet peut-être leur offrir à tous une chance de rédemption. « Un tour de force qui a imposé Pat Conroy comme un immense conteur digne de William Styron ou de John Irving. » (L'Express)

Histoire de l'Italie by Pierre Milza Summary

Y a-t-il en Europe une terre qui ait connu en quatre millénaires davantage de bouleversements que l'Italie ? La Péninsule aura expérimenté tous les modèles d'organisation politique et elle les a souvent exportés. Elle aura subi aussi, de tous temps, des bouleversements démographiques et des brassages sans équivalents combien d'invasions, d'occupations, de descentes, de raids ? Quel invraisemblable empilement de civilisations sur un même sol, où presque tous les peuples du continent et tous les empires se sont un jour donné rendez-vous. En dépit de cette instabilité, c'est en vain qu'on chercherait une époque où l'Italie aurait cessé d'illustrer le génie humain : de l'Empire romain à la Cité-Etat, du latin au toscan qui a été fixé bien avant les autres langues vernaculaires, des sciences à la peinture et à la sculpture, de l'architecture au cinéma et à la musique, etc., elle n'a pas souffert d'avoir eu dix ou douze villes capitales rivales (la France n'en a jamais eu qu'une seule !), au contraire, elle en a fait une force qui l'a transformée en institutrice des autres nations qu'elle féconde depuis des siècles et des siècles... A la différence de quelques autres « miracles » que les historiens relèvent ici ou là dans l'espace et le temps mais qui sont souvent éphémères, le miracle italien est permanent. Il fallait toutes les connaissances, toute la culture et toutes les affinités électives de Pierre Milza avec le pays de ses aïeux pour faire le récit le plus documenté et le plus vivant qui soit de cette histoire longue et complexe. De l'âge du bronze à Berlusconi, il guide son lecteur sur tous les fronts : l'événement bien sûr, le portrait d'une longue cohorte d'hommes d'exception, mais aussi la civilisation, c'est-à-dire les champs culturel et spirituel. Le biographe de Mussolini accomplit, en à peine un millier de pages, un véritable tour de force qui fait de cette somme le livre de chevet des francophones qui visitent l'Italie, qui travaillent avec elle, qui aiment leur « soeur latine » et veulent la comprendre.

Tolkien: Light and Shadow by AA. VV. Summary

A collection of essays by ten international experts on J. R. R. Tolkien’s Legendarium, focussed on Light and Shadow. Such leading threads of his literary production are here taken as universal themes to be interpreted in several different senses – ethical, philosophical, psychological, spiritual, historical and biographical – with further insights into their numberless nuances. The Professor’s main works (above all, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion) are explored in their multifacete aspects, in connection with his life’s events and bearing in mind his own opinion on them, through his Letters and his essay On Fairy Stories. Thanks to these sharp and compelling reflections, a wide range of viewpoints on his entire opus emerges, confirming its utmost relevance to the history of Literature, and offering some indeed new intuitions on the spirit of his creations.

Tolkien and Alterity by Christopher Vaccaro,Yvette Kisor Summary

This exciting collection of essays explores the role of the Other in Tolkien’s fiction, his life, and the pertinent criticism. It critically examines issues of gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity, language, and identity in The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, and lesser-known works by Tolkien. The chapters consider characters such as Lobelia Sackville-Baggins, Saruman, Éowyn, and the Orcs as well as discussions of how language and identity function in the source texts. The analysis of Tolkien’s work is set against an examination of his life, personal writing, and beliefs. Each essay takes as its central position the idea that how Tolkien responds to that which is different, to that which is “Other,” serves as a register of his ethics and moral philosophy. In the aggregate, they provide evidence of Tolkien’s acceptance of alterity.

J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert E. Howard and the Birth of Modern Fantasy by Deke Parsons Summary

The birth of modern fantasy in 1930s Britain and America saw the development of new literary and film genres. J.R.R. Tolkien created modern fantasy with The Lord of the Rings, set in a fictional world based upon his life in the early 20th century British Empire, and his love of language and medieval literature. In small-town Texas, Robert E. Howard pounded out his own fantasy realm in his Conan stories, published serially in the ephemeral pulp magazines he loved. Jerry Siegel created Superman with Joe Shuster, and laid the foundation for perhaps the most far-reaching fantasy worlds: the universe of DC and Marvel comics. The work of extraordinary people who lived in an extraordinary decade, this modern fantasy canon still provides source material for the most successful literary and film franchises of the 21st century. Modern fantasy speaks to the human experience and still shows its origins from the lives and times of its creators.

J. R. R. Tolkien's Sanctifying Myth by Bradley J. Birzer Summary

Since the appearance of The Lord of the Rings in 1954, J. R. R. Tolkien’s works have always sold briskly, appealing to a wide and diverse audience of intellectuals, religious believers, fantasy enthusiasts, and science fiction aficionados. Now, Peter Jackson’s film version of Tolkien’s trilogy—with its accompanying Rings-related paraphernalia and publicity—is playing a unique role in the dissemination of Tolkien’s imaginative creation to the masses. Yet, for most readers and viewers, the underlying meaning of Middle-earth has remained obscure. Bradley Birzer has remedied that with this fresh study. In J. R. R. Tolkien’s Sanctifying Myth: Understanding Middle-earth, Birzer explains the surprisingly specific religious symbolism that permeates Tolkien’s Middle-earth legendarium. He also explores the social and political views that motivated the Oxford don, ultimately situating Tolkien within the Christian humanist tradition represented by Thomas More and T. S. Eliot, Dante and C. S. Lewis. Birzer argues that through the genre of myth Tolkien created a world that is essentially truer than the one we think we see around us every day, a world that transcends the colorless disenchantment of our postmodern age. “A small knowledge of history,” Tolkien once wrote, “depresses one with the sense of the everlasting weight of human iniquity.” As Birzer demonstrates, Tolkien’s recognition of evil became mythologically manifest in the guise of Ringwraiths, Orcs, Sauron, and other dark beings. But Tolkien was ultimately optimistic: even weak, bumbling hobbits and humans, as long as they cling to the Good, can finally prevail. Bradley Birzer has performed a great service in elucidating Tolkien’s powerful moral vision.

Holy Curiosity by Amy Hollingsworth Summary

One passage, two verses, four words. As a writer and an adjunct professor of psychology, Amy Hollingsworth is on her way to becoming an "expert" on creativity. But just days before delivering her first professional seminar on the topic, she has an unsettling dream. The dream awakens her to the fact that she has missed a crucial element in understanding what true creativity is. Trying to unravel the dream, she soon discovers its contents reflected in a single passage of ancient literature. In this passage she sees for the first time creativity's core, its spiritual roots, and as its meaning unfolds through months of spiritual reflection and study, it confirms the very scientific theories she's been teaching all along. In fact, she discovers the underpinnings of the whole body of creativity research tucked into four small words penned centuries ago, kernels of truth that explode with a new depth of meaning. As she digs deeper, she uncovers for the reader God's blueprint for cultivating the creative spirit in everyday life, through a practical outworking of her spiritual findings. In the end, both writer and reader come away with a new understanding of their own creative abilities--and a profound sense of what's truly holy about holy curiosity.

Tolkien in the New Century by John Wm. Houghton,,Janet Brennan Croft,Nancy Martsch Summary

Widely considered one of the leading experts on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, Thomas Alan Shippey has informed and enlightened a generation of Tolkien scholars and fans. In this collection, friends and colleagues honor Shippey with 15 essays that reflect their mentor's research interests, methods of literary criticism and attention to Tolkien's shorter works. In a wide-ranging consideration of Tolkien's oeuvre, the contributors explore the influence of 19th and 20th century book illustrations on Tolkien's work; utopia and fantasy in Tolkien's Middle-earth; the Silmarils, the Arkenstone, and the One Ring as thematic vehicles; the pattern of decline in Middle-earth as reflected in the diminishing power of language; Tolkien's interest in medieval genres; the heroism of secondary characters; and numerous other topics. Also included are brief memoirs by Shippey's colleagues and friends in academia and fandom and a bibliography of Shippey's work.
