La Russie et la tentation de l'Orient by Lorraine de Meaux Book Summary:

Si, à partir de Pierre le Grand, la Russie a tout fait pour s’arrimer à l’Occident, un voile recouvre l’autre versant de son identité : sa composante orientale. Au xixe siècle, la construction d’un vaste empire colonial pousse la puissance russe toujours plus loin à l’est et au sud, du Caucase jusqu’à l’océan Pacifique. Entre la fondation de Saint-Pétersbourg en 1703 et la création de Vladivostok en 1860, on assiste à une véritable « orientalisation » de l’Empire. Militaires, savants et diplomates, écrivains et artistes nourrissent alors l’imaginaire de la Russie et fortifient sa vocation universelle. De Catherine II à Lénine, de Pouchkine à Diaghilev, cet ouvrage offre pour la première fois une présentation générale de la colonisation russe en Orient, des rêves suivis parfois de réveils cruels qui l’ont accompagnée, et dont certains durent encore. Lorraine de Meaux est agrégée et docteur en histoire. Spécialiste de la Russie, elle a dirigé l’ouvrage Saint-Pétersbourg. Histoire, promenades, anthologie et dictionnaire (Robert Laffont, collection « Bouquins », 2003).

Le Phénomène Soljénitsyne - Nouvelle édition by Georges Nivat Book Summary:

Ce livre embrasse tous les aspects du « phénomène Soljénitsyne » : la naissance d’un athlète de la dissidence, le labeur d’un écrivain comparable à Balzac, l’érection de deux « cathédrales » d’écriture, L’Archipel du Goulag sur la fabrique d’inhumain en utopie, et La Roue rouge sur le « déraillement » de l’histoire russe, enfin, le poète philosophe des « Miettes en prose », de La Maison de Matriona, des dialogues stoïciens du Premier Cercle. Alexandre Soljénitsyne lut attentivement la première version de ce livre en russe (publiée à 800 000 exemplaires à Moscou, en pleine perestroïka) et il porta ce jugement : « Une vision littéraire pleine d’acuité, une intuition morale très fine, et des conclusions générales qui visent juste. » (Esquisses d’exil). Le nouvel ouvrage tient compte de plusieurs remarques envoyées par Soljénitsyne à l’auteur. L’ancien volume est totalement refondu et largement augmenté. Georges Nivat y conduit la réflexion littéraire et morale jusqu’au terme de la longue vie d’écrivain lutteur d’Alexandre Soljénitsyne. Georges Nivat, slaviste réputé, professeur honoraire à l’Université de Genève, est l’auteur de Vivre en russe (L’Age d’Homme, 2007) et Sites de la mémoire russe, 2 tomes (Fayard, 2007, 2019).

Ma collection littéraire by Alexandre Soljénitsyne Book Summary:

C’est après avoir terminé ses deux titanesques « cathédrales d’écriture », l’Archipel du Goulag d’une part, la Roue rouge d’autre part, qu’Alexandre Soljénitsyne entreprit de lire ou de relire la littérature russe, celle du XIXe siècle, comme celle du XXe siècle. Ma collection littéraire est ainsi, à l’état brut, le fonctionnement mental d’un grand écrivain défrichant le texte d’un autre. On trouve dans ce premier tome des lectures d’écrivains du grand siècle classique : Lermontov, Tchekhov, Alexeï Tolstoï, et d’autres du suivant : celui des années soviétiques (1920-1930) : Andreï Biély, Mikhaïl Boulgakov, Iouri Tyniavov, Pantéleïmon Romanov, puis des années 1970 comme Iouri Naguibine, ou de la dissidence comme Guéorgui Vladimov.Ce volume est tout sauf un essai de critique ou un cours de littérature, mais un texte où, tour à tour admiratif, rageur, emporté, un maître de l’écriture dévore ce qu’il lit et perce le mystère de l’écriture.Alexandre Soljénitsyne (1918-2008) a obtenu le prix Nobel de littérature en 1970. Déchu de sa nationalité en 1974 après la parution en Occident de l’Archipel du Goulag, il fut expulsé d’URSS, émigra aux Etats-Unis, où il vécut vingt ans avant de revenir en Russie.

Requiem for a Lost Empire by Andreï Makine Book Summary:

In this remarkable novel, which spans eighty years of the twentieth century, Andreï Makine describes, beautifully but unsparingly, the almost uninterrupted succession of violence, misery, and horror that has been visited on the Russian people since the October Revolution of 1917. For those quick to forget, or too young to remember, he paints a graphic portrait of those years in a three-generational novel that is as moving as it is revealing. A young Russian army doctor is sent to distant shores to bind the wounds of those in Africa, the Near East, and South America that are pawns in the global political chess game during the Cold War. Recruited by an intelligence agent, he experiences the bloody reality of revolution on the ground. The book casts its eye back toward his grandfather Nikolai, a Red cavalry soldier fighting the Whites in 1920, and his father, whose story of World War II is invoked with a passion and force that bear comparison to the best writing on the subject. From the battlefields of the 1920s to the harsh African heat and dust of the desert in the 1980s, from the orphanage where the narrator spent his youth to the art galleries and chic salons of the glittering new West, Requiem for a Lost Empire has all the sweep and depth, all the beauty and insight of the great Russian novels. It is, as the eminent French critic Edmonde Charles-Roux noted, "an astonishing novel, one that will surely stand the test of time."

The Crime of Olga Arbyelina by Andreï Makine Book Summary:

The summer of ’47. In the sleepy town of Villiers-la-Forêt, roughly an hour from Paris, the peaceful radiance of the day is interrupted by the discovery that, along a nearby riverbank, the body of a man has washed up, a gaping wound in his skull. Beside him rests a beautiful, nearly bare-breasted woman, her dress soaked and in tatters. An accident or foul play? A crime of passion? Soon there are almost as many speculations and theories as there are townspeople. The woman, it turns out, is a Russian princess, Olga Arbyelina, a refugee from the Bolshevik revolution who in the 1930s had settled in town along with many of her compatriots. Rumor was that Olga's husband, a dashing prince given to gambling and revels, had deserted her some years after the couple's arrival in France, leaving her alone to care for their young son. About the victim, also a Russian refugee, little is known: many years Olga's elder, he was a taciturn, rather coarse, slightly ridiculous man name Sergei Golets, thought dismissively to be a former horse butcher. What on earth could have brought these two unlikely souls together? Makine meticulously re-creates Olga's past—her enchanted childhood; her pampered youth and fevered, transitory embrace of the revolution; her arduous flight toward freedom; her encounter with the dashing White Army officer who saved her life; her marriage and arrival in France; the birth of her adored son. Love has its limits, its limitations and boundaries. But in a woman of great passion, what do such limits mean when you know that each day may be the last for your son?

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke Book Summary:

In the Hugo-award winning, epic New York Times Bestseller and basis for the BBC miniseries, two men change England's history when they bring magic back into the world. In the midst of the Napoleonic Wars in 1806, most people believe magic to have long since disappeared from England - until the reclusive Mr. Norrell reveals his powers and becomes an overnight celebrity. Another practicing magician then emerges: the young and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's pupil, and the two join forces in the war against France. But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wild, most perilous forms of magic, and he soon risks sacrificing his partnership with Norrell and everything else he holds dear. Susanna Clarke's brilliant first novel is an utterly compelling epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the two magicians who, first as teacher and pupil and then as rivals, emerge to change its history.

My Fellow Skin is a beautiful, affectionate novel told from the point of view of an impressionable young boy. The novel opens before the boy can talk, and we follow Anton’s first, tentative steps on the path to adulthood. He gradually begins to grasp an understanding of time and death, and when he goes to school he falls in love for the first time – not with the schoolgirls his peers are interested in, but with his classmate, Willem. A gentle, protective relationship develops between them, and this gives Anton his own, new identity, his ‘fellow skin’. But their love ends tragically, and Anton ultimately loses not only his love, but also his youth, the protection of his parents, and the old house in the village. He is left desolate.

The Thousand and One Borders of Iran by Fariba Adelkhah Book Summary:

A country marked by controversy, Iran’s social, cultural and political dynamics are too often reduced to a few misleading clichés. Islamism is widely considered to shape all social relations in Iranian society and, while Iranian society is indeed Islamic, this term’s multiple meanings in everyday life and practices go far beyond the naïve and monolithic idea we are used to. The Thousand and One Borders of Iran analyses travel as a social practice, exploring how diasporas, margins and so-called peripheries are central in the construction of a national identity and thus revealing the complexities of Iranian history and society. Written by a leading anthropologist, it draws upon fieldwork carried out in Iran and Iranian migrant communities across Dubai, Tokyo and Los Angeles from 1998 to 2015. While casting new perspectives on the place of transnational relations in an increasingly globalized world, this work also sheds new light on the evolution of Iranian society, countering the explanation furnished by nationalist ideology that has been reproduced by the Islamic Republic itself. Its unique approach to the analysis of Iranian society through the theme of travel and borders considers the links and even the quarrels between the centre of Iranian society and the periphery, and the foreign elements that have contributed to society’s development. Travel is key to these interactions and, following the travels of merchants and workers, students or the faithful, elected officials and experts, or exiles and refugees, this book offers an anthropological study of travel that re-thinks Iranian history and national identity. This book would be of interest to students and scholars of Iranian Studies, Middle Eastern Studies and Anthropology.
