By Biagio Marin

ISBN-13: 9788811687580

Faceva ancora il liceo Claudio Magris quando nella Trieste degli anni Cinquanta conobbe Biagio Marin, figura leggendaria di intellettuale e maestro, ma soprattutto poeta luminoso, ammirato dai critici seppure ancora lontano dalla fama nazionale che sentiva di meritare. Il quasi mezzo secolo di età che li separava non impedì lo sbocciare di un’amicizia febbrile, coltivata in step with quasi trent’anni attraverso incontri e, sempre più frequentemente, lettere che qui si pubblicano consistent with l. a. prima volta, grazie all’appassionata cura di Renzo Sanson. Gli scambi tra i due testimoniano di un rapporto tra allievo e maestro fatto di stima e ammirazione: Marin aveva perso in guerra il figlio Falco, e riversò l’affetto di un padre su Magris, «figlio d’anima»; Magris in Marin trovò il suo modello di libertà. Rivelano un affetto fortissimo, ma testimoniano senza pudori di scontri, asprezze e incomprensioni, raccontando due vite parallele che si intrecciano e si ritrovano nel corso degli anni: Marin vorrebbe Magris suo erede esclusivo, pur sapendo che sarà impossibile, e soprattutto gli chiede di aiutarlo a conquistare quel riconoscimento che ancora pare sfuggirgli; Magris, soprattutto negli anni della sua formazione e della crescita intellettuale, gli chiede spesso consiglio e conforto, ma non esita a replicare l’eterno dramma del conflitto con il padre quando avverte il peso della personalità e della irruenza di un uomo non a caso chiamato in famiglia «fronte di tempesta». Attraverso pagine ricche di forza e di umanità, Ti devo tanto di ciò che sono disegna così l’inedita autobiografia di due grandi scrittori, l’uno espressione del Diciannovesimo secolo («voce di una generazione maturatasi prima della Grande Guerra, esperta delle crisi ma non incrinate da esse», nelle parole di Magris), l’altro proiettato nelle nevrosi e nelle inquietudini del Novecento.

Un roman pour les femmes à l. a. découverte de leur féminité


Prélude d’Ane-Juin 2010

Je n’aime pas les montres. Ni les Cartier ni les Pierre Cardin. Les montres quadrillent le temps. Elles dressent sans culpabilité d’ignobles barrières sur l’épiderme d’une jeunesse qui ne demande qu’à s’attarder. Sur le cadran de leurs arrogances naissent les rides. Je n’aime pas les rides. Elles ponctuent l. a. vie. Elles plissent les yeux et fanent souvent le regard. Je n’aime pas les montres qui carrellent le temps et fatiguent les yeux de rides qui en disent lengthy sur les chemins de traverse d’une vie. Les montres trahissent. Je préfère le maquillage. Celui qui dissimule les lines que laissent les flâneries d’une montre. Celui qui atténue et module, en les grimant, les passages du temps.


- « Un roman fait de mots, de maux, d’émotions, de successions de substantifs et d’épithètes enrobés de couleurs diverses. Peut-être ce livre doit-il être lu à voix haute pour en percevoir le greatest de plaisir tant los angeles musique qui émane du verbe est en harmonie avec lui. Comme une avalanche, les mots se chevauchent, se suivent, se bousculent parfois, se complètent souvent, s’opposent aussi et s’entrecroisent pour mieux se transcender et ainsi, faire mieux passer les sentiments d’Ana, une femme torturée. » Maurice Vandeweyer, L’Avenir

- « A quarante ans Ana se remet en questions sur sa vie passée et destiny. Elle despatched qu’elle ne peut plus vivre dans l’ombre, elle a besoin de s’affirmer telle qu’elle est avec ses rondeurs, ses imperfections et ses fragilités. Une histoire remplie d’émotions, qui touche surtout les femmes mais tout autant les hommes. » Le Suricate Magazine

- « l. a. musicalité de sa ligne d’écriture est une invitation. Dès le départ, le rythme est donné. Et nous voici précipités dans le monde d’Ana, dans sa vie de femme moderne et lively. » Culture Remains


« Romancière depuis peu, poète depuis toujours, Sylvie Godefroid s’introduit avec humilité dans le paysage des Lettres belges, promenant une émotivité et une mélancolie dissimulées sous une faconde de bon aloi et dans les vagues d’un sourire everlasting… Philippevillaine de souche, Bruxelloise d’adoption, elle voit le jour en 1973. Le “Pays Noir” tracera au fusain les détours d’une personnalité mélangée, plongée dans les lavis d’une belgitude aux couleurs vagues, éveillée aux pinceaux de l’imaginaire. Sylvie Godefroid imagine pleinement une telle bâtardise qui l’apparente aux grands hivers de Jacques Brel comme au peuple des brouillards et des rêves. » (Michel Joiret)

En d’autres temps le sens de l. a. vie fut connu ; alors les hommes n’ignoraient rien d’essentiel, puisqu’ils savaient
