Summary:

Après trente-six ans, Zuckerman l'écrivain retrouve Seymour Levov dit «le Suédois», l'athlète fétiche de son lycée de Newark. Toujours aussi splendide, Levov l'invincible, le généreux, l'idole des années de guerre, le petit-fils d'immigrés juifs devenu un Américain plus vrai que nature. Le Suédois a réussi sa vie, faisant prospérer la ganterie paternelle, épousant la très irlandaise Miss New Jersey 1949, régnant loin de la ville sur une vieille demeure de pierre encadrée d'érables centenaires : la pastorale américaine. Mais la photo est incomplète, car, hors champ, il y a Merry, la fille rebelle. Et avec elle surgit dans cet enclos idyllique le spectre d'une autre Amérique, en pleine convulsion, celle des années soixante, de sainte Angela Davis, des rues de Newark à feu et à sang... Passant de l'imprécation au lyrisme, du détail au panorama sans jamais se départir d'un fond de dérision, ce roman de Philip Roth est une somme qui, dans son ambiguïté vertigineuse, restitue l'épaisseur de la vie et les cicatrices intimes de l'Histoire.

Summary:

Now a major motion picture based on Philip Roth's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece American Pastoral, starring Ewan McGregor and Jennifer Connelly ‘Swede’ Levov is living the American dream. He glides through life sustained by his devoted family, his demanding yet highly rewarding (and lucrative) business, his sporting prowess, his good looks. He is the embodiment of thriving, post-war America, land of liberty and hope. Until the sunny day in 1968, when the Swede’s bountiful American luck deserts him. The tragedy springs from devastatingly close to home. His adored daughter, Merry, has become a stranger to him, a fanatical teenager capable of an outlandishly savage act of political terrorism that plunges the Levov family into the political mayhem of sixties America, and drags them into the underbelly of a seemingly ascendant society. Rendered powerless by the shocking turn of events, the Swede can only watch as his pastoral idyll is methodically torn apart.

Summary:

Parlons travail : ou comment la littérature se fait dans la conscience de l'écrivain sans cesse sollicitée par les affaires du monde. Dans l'intimité de la rencontre intellectuelle, Philip Roth et des auteurs d'origines et d'horizons divers évaluent l'incidence du milieu, de la politique et de l'histoire sur leur œuvre, en rapportant le processus singulier de l'art au contexte souvent traumatique de sa création : Primo Levi, Aharon Appelfeld, Ivan Klíma, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Milan Kundera et Edna O'Brien sont ses interlocuteurs. Dans ces entretiens, Philip Roth, s'effaçant derrière celui qu'il interroge, se révèle un auditeur attentif. Mais cette discrétion ne l'empêche pas de dessiner, au travers de ses questions, un autoportrait intellectuel. On trouvera aussi un échange de lettres avec Mary McCarthy et les portraits de deux amis disparus, jusqu'au bout habités par leur vocation, l'écrivain Bernard Malamud et le peintre Philip Guston qui illustra Le sein. L''atelier idéal du livre' se referme sur Saul Bellow dont Philip Roth relit ici l'œuvre magistrale avec la conviction exceptionnelle d'un confrère enthousiaste.

Summary:

This book is a historical novel in which the protagonist recounts her life, begun in the simplicities of the Ohio frontier of 1820 and ending in Kansas in 1909 with the complexities of a newer world dominated by railways. Naomi is a strong-minded woman who has married three times but remains childless, devoting herself to raising the orphans she's adopted. The long journey of her life comes to an end when at the age of 80 in Jewell County, Kansas, she marries her third husband, a former cavalry soldier who still wears cavalry boots and keeps a sword-- and who has never taken orders from a woman. It's not that she means to give him orders, but he needs someone to tell him what to do and by God she's the woman to do it. The last chapter of the book is told from the third husband's point of view, that of a man whose personal trek began in New York state and passed through the Civil War. He suffers from epilepsy, a malady whose visionary ecstasies and maddening descents he is only beginning to understand. He recounts the final episodes in the lives of himself and Naomi, as on a dark night he picks up a symbolic sword of command and stops his wife's nagging once and for all. Found innocent by reason of insanity, he spends his last years in Parsons State Hospital in Labette County, Kansas, not far from where the notorious Bender family slew so many trusting travelers twenty years before. There at last he receives proper medication and struggles to understand the forces that have determined the chaos of his life.

Summary:

Après onze ans de réclusion volontaire dans la campagne du Massachusetts, Zuckerman remet les pieds à New York, pour une intervention bénigne mais qui le renvoie à sa déchéance physique. Dans la ville accablée par la réélection inattendue de George W. Bush, trois rencontres vont bouleverser ses plans : Amy Bellette, vieillie et presque mourante, elle qui, dans l'éclat de sa jeunesse, fut la muse de E. I. Lonoff, son mentor ; Richard Kliman, jeune arriviste insupportable qui le harcèle parce qu'il veut révéler les secrets de Lonoff ; et puis, surtout, un jeune couple d'écrivains avec qui il envisage un échange de maisons. Et voilà Zuckerman, qui se croyait immunisé, en proie à un dernier coup de foudre. Pour Jamie, la très charmante jeune femme du couple. Va-t-il passer à l'acte? Ou se servir de ce dernier amour pour écrire encore – traduire dans une fiction les fantasmes qu'il lui inspire?

Summary:

From the moment that his debut book, Goodbye, Columbus (1959), won him the National Book Award, Philip Roth has been among the most influential and controversial writers of our age. Now the author of more than twenty novels, numerous stories, two memoirs, and two books of literary criticism, Roth has used his writing to continually reinvent himself and in doing so to remake the American literary landscape. This Companion provides the most comprehensive introduction to his works and thought in a collection of newly commissioned essays from distinguished scholars. Beginning with the urgency of Roth's early fiction and extending to the vitality of his most recent novels, these essays trace Roth's artistic engagement with questions about ethnic identity, postmodernism, Israel, the Holocaust, sexuality, and the human psyche itself. With its chronology and guide to further reading, this Companion will be essential for new and returning Roth readers, students and scholars.

Summary:

The incongruence if not antagonism between modern liberalism and the Jewish sense of the world has been most notably articulated by Lionel Trilling. Certainly the imaginative limitations and intellectual smugness he discerned in his own ideological party found a parallel, in his view, in the embrace of liberalism by the American Jewish community. The consequences of that embrace entail both a superficial intellectual and religious culture and a misunderstanding of the social and political dimensions of Judaism. In Classical Liberalism and the Jewish Tradition, Edward Alexander engages in a wide-ranging exploration of the roots of the fundamental antagonism between liberalism and Jewish tradition from the nineteenth century to the present day. Central to Alexander's arguments is his incisive critique of the distortion of modern Judaism as a child of the Enlightenment and the notion that specifically Jewish concerns, whether with Zionism, the Holocaust, or sacred and secular writings, constitute a narrow and parochial betrayal of liberal interests. The chapters are divided among political, religious, and literary subjects. The opening chapter on Mill's ambivalent attitude toward the Jews establishes terms of conflict between Judaism and liberal secularism and universality as do chapters on the antisemitism of Thomas Arnold and Marx and the more ambiguous Jewish self-identification of Disraeli. Alexander examines such disparate topics as the hostility to the idea of a Jewish state on the part of numerous Israeli intellectuals, the disdain among liberals toward the specifically Jewish dimension of the Holocaust, and the capitulation of the Modern Language Association to the anti-Zionism of Edward Said. Turning to the uneasy status of Jewish religious texts and secular literature as sources of cultural revitalization, Alexander deals with the attempt by the Israeli scholar Adin Steinsaltz to bring the Talmud to the attention of contemporary Jewish readers and includes a chapter on his nineteenth-century precursor Emanuel Deutsch and his relationship to George Eliot. An analysis of Ruth Wisse's efforts to establish a modern Jewish literary canon is rounded out by chapters on two of the major figures of that canon: Isaac Bashevis Singer and Philip Roth. While diverse in subject matter, Classical Liberalism and the Jewish Tradition is consistent in its unapologetic advocacy of a Jewish point of view and in its depth of scholarship in tracing the historical roots of contemporary attitudes and ideologies.

Summary:

While one of the central drives in classic American letters has been a reflexive desire to move away from the complexity and supposed corruption of cities toward such idealized nonurban settings as Cooper's prairies, Thoreau's woods, Melville's seas, Whitman's open road, and Twain's river, nearly the opposite has been true in African-American letters. Indeed the main tradition of African-American literature has been, for the most part, strikingly positive in its vision of the city. Although never hesitant to criticize the negative aspects of city life, classic African-American writers have only rarely suggested that pastoral alternatives exist for African-Americans and have therefore celebrated in a great variety of ways the possibilities of urban living. For Frederick Douglass, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and Ralph Ellison, the city, despite its many problems, has been a place of deliverance and renewal. In the words of Alain Locke, the city provided "a new vision of opportunity" for African-Americans that could enable them to move from an enslaving "medieval" world to a modern world containing the possibility of liberation. More recent African-American literature has also been noteworthy for its largely affirmative vision of urban life. Amiri Baraka's 1981 essay "Black Literature and the Afro-American Nation: The Urban Voice" argues that, from the Harlem Renaissance onward, African-American literature has been "urban shaped," producing a uniquely "black urban consciousness." And Toni Morrison, although stressing that the American city in general has often induced a sense of alienation in many African-American writers, nevertheless adds that modern African-American literature is suffused with an "affection" for "the village within" the city. Gwendolyn Brook's poetry and Gloria Naylor's fiction, likewise, celebrate this sense of cultural unity in the black city. In addition to these writers, the sixteen new essays in this collection discuss the works of Claude McKay, William Attaway, Willard Motley, Ann Petry, John A. Williams, Charles Johnson, Samuel R. Delany, Ed Bullins, Adrienne Kennedy, and Lorraine Hansberry. The authors of these essays range from critics in America to those abroad, as well as from specialists in African-American literature to those in other fields.
