Also as a side note, I picked up the french verb "devisager" from this reading Le premier roman fantastique que j'ai lu. C'est une re-lecture pour moi, pour les cours les 2 fois. Bye C'est une re-lecture pour moi, pour les cours les 2 fois. In breve la trama: un archeologo parigino che narra in prima persona giunge nel Roussillon per visitarne i siti, ospite di un ricco antiquario locale. Questi ha appena fatto una scoperta eccezionale: una statua bronzea di Venere, che egli attribuisce a Mirone, dall'espressione ambigua e che reca sul piedistallo una misteriosa iscrizione; negli stessi giorni il figlio dell'antiquario, rozzo e volgare, sposa una ricca fanciulla del luogo, e l'ospite parigino assiste alle nozze.
Anche nel secondo racconto di questo volume, Il vaso etrusco , le pulsioni erotiche e quelle di morte, strettamente interconnesse, costituiscono la cifra essenziale della vicenda. Il giovane Auguste Saint-Clair, dall'animo inquieto e non conformista, ama appassionatamente, riamato, la graziosa Mathilde de Coursy, giovane ed irreprensibile vedova.
This is an interesting tale with hidden and occult issues. Archeology, anthropology, and history give us clues and moves to lower the arrogance that almost always pervades modern societies, pointing out that many times we do not understand the beliefs, symbols, and powers that existed in earlier culturies and were even revered like gods or demons.

Neil Gaiman's book American Gods points to something like this: how gods can lose or gain power according to people's faith, memory, and presence in This is an interesting tale with hidden and occult issues. Neil Gaiman's book American Gods points to something like this: how gods can lose or gain power according to people's faith, memory, and presence in their time. This tale also deals about the confuse between a forgotten goddess or demon and a beautiful statue.
Could art representations of gods or demons carry something more inside them? A power, an enchantment, a soul? Other point of this tale is the reflexion about the superficial or scornful interpretation that a society can make of its symbols and from others cultures. An example that the author point to this direction is the constant comparative and even prejudiced dialogue that some characters have about the people, thoughts and customs from Paris and the interior of France and the dispute and a kind of patriotism that can be symbolized among other things by the sport.
C'est dommage, parce-que, a mon avis, plus de personnes devraient lire ce grand auteur. Je partage l'amour de Merime pour la mythologie greque. C'est une excellente lecture que je recommande. Are the events supernatural, or does reason prevail? The suggestion alone that it might not makes for good horror in both cases. Lovecraft relished that moment of hesitation as to whether "the fixed laws of Nature" had been corrupted or suspended. The story itself, set in Southern France, deals with the unearthing of a bronze Venus Pudica which may or may not have an evil will of its own - it appears to be deliberately maiming people in no time.
He subtly prepares a creepy tale built on ill omens, evocative description, highly suggestive conversation and the ever unnerving imprecision of the first-person narration "Nothing of verosimilitude occurred to me," laments the protagonist at one point. Above all the tale never betrays its own ambiguity. There's something deeply disturbing about a horror story that comes this close to revealing its mystery, yet fails to take the final step towards drawing its own conclusions - forcing the reader to do so instead.
Merimee was one of the most popular authors of 19th Century France, but aside from "Carmen" on which the opera was based I don't think any of his work made it into English. This is a shame as he was a superb story teller. La Venus d'Ille and the other stories in this volume will hold the reader spellbound waiting to see what happens next. Many of these stories have a supernatural component, including the title story.

How does literary fiction benefit you? Reading a fictional novel can help amplify your creative spark. Unlike non-fiction, the world of literary fiction is very much open to interpretations based on your perspective as a reader. This factor allows you to not only fully engage with the story but to also consider all the various paths it might take once you've seen the initial direction.
Whether you're looking for a crime thriller from Michael Connelly, a pure mystery from Agatha Christie, or a romance by Nicholas Sparks, most stories have a main character that the author attempts to humanize in a variety of ways. This process allows you to feel as though you, too, are a part of that story, sharing in the adventures and experiences of the protagonist.
Studies have shown that reading literary fiction improves both your social perception and empathy. While this is intrinsically useful, it can also help shape your leadership and entrepreneurial skills. Fiction can help improve your focus which in turn helps you tackle problems and overcome obstacles in your daily professional life. What are common types of fiction writing?
