Le livre de Memory by Petina Gappah Book Summary:

« L’histoire que vous m’avez demandé de vous raconter ne commence pas avec la mort, d’une hideur déplorable, de Lloyd. Elle commence par une journée d’août, il y a bien longtemps, quand j’avais neuf ans, que le soleil brûlait mon visage couvert de cloques et que mon père et ma mère me vendaient à un homme étrange. » Enfermée dans le couloir de la mort, pour un crime qu'elle n'a pas commis, Memory se souvient : son enfance joyeuse dans le township près d'Harare, où la nuit les sorcières mangent les enfants. Son attachement pour cet homme blanc, mystérieux et érudit, qui lui a donné une éducation et l'amour des livres... Désormais, Memory partage ses interminables journées avec Verity et Jimmy, l'arnaqueuse et la prostituée. Entre rire et émotion, le passé resurgit et éclaire son improbable destin. D'une écriture étincelante, mélodique, ce roman plonge le lecteur dans un monde de mystères, de dérisions et d'énergie vitale. Traduit de l’anglais par Pierre Guglielmina

The Book of Memory by Petina Gappah Book Summary:

The story that you have asked me to tell you does not begin with the pitiful ugliness of Lloyd’s death. It begins on a long-ago day in August when the sun seared my blistered face and I was nine years old and my father and mother sold me to a strange man. Memory, the narrator of Petina Gappah’s The Book of Memory, is an albino woman languishing in Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison in Harare, Zimbabwe, after being sentenced for murder. As part of her appeal, her lawyer insists that she write down what happened as she remembers it. The death penalty is a mandatory sentence for murder, and Memory is, both literally and metaphorically, writing for her life. As her story unfolds, Memory reveals that she has been tried and convicted for the murder of Lloyd Hendricks, her adopted father. But who was Lloyd Hendricks? Why does Memory feel no remorse for his death? And did everything happen exactly as she remembers? Moving between the townships of the poor and the suburbs of the rich, and between past and present, the 2009 Guardian First Book Award–winning writer Petina Gappah weaves a compelling tale of love, obsession, the relentlessness of fate, and the treachery of memory.

The Book of Memory by Mary J. Carruthers Book Summary:

The Book of Memory is a magisterial and beautifully illustrated account of the workings and function of memory in medieval society. Memory was the psychological faculty valued above all others in the period stretching from late antiquity through the Renaissance. The prominence given to memory has profound implications for the contemporary understanding of all creative activity, and the social role of literature and art. Drawing on a range of fascinating examples from Dante, Chaucer, and Aquinas to the symbolism of illuminated manuscripts, this unusually wide-ranging book offers new insights into the medieval world.

The Book of Memory by Mary Carruthers Book Summary:

Mary Carruthers's classic study of the training and uses of memory for a variety of purposes in European cultures during the Middle Ages has fundamentally changed the way scholars understand medieval culture. This fully revised and updated second edition considers afresh all the material and conclusions of the first. While responding to new directions in research inspired by the original, this new edition devotes much more attention to the role of trained memory in composition, whether of literature, music, architecture, or manuscript books. The new edition will reignite the debate on memory in medieval studies and, like the first, will be essential reading for scholars of history, music, the arts and literature, as well as those interested in issues of orality and literacy (anthropology), in the working and design of memory (both neuropsychology and artificial memory), and in the disciplines of meditation (religion).

« Votre âge. Votre adresse. Le visage de votre amant. Jusqu’au nom de votre premier enfant.

The Writer's Book of Memory

The Book Of Memory Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Writer's Book of Memory by Janine Rider Book Summary:

Memory has long been ignored by rhetoricians because the written word has made memorization virtually obsolete. Recently however, as part of a revival of interest in classical rhetoric, scholars have begun to realize that memory offers vast possibilities for today's writers. Synthesizing research from rhetoric, psychology, philosophy, and literary and composition studies, this volume brings together many historical and contemporary theories of memory. Yet its focus is clear: memory is a generator of knowledge and a creative force which deserves attention at the beginning of and throughout the writing process. This volume emphasizes the importance of recognizing memory's powers in an age in which mass media influence us all and electronic communication changes the way we think and write. It also addresses the importance of the individual memory and voice in an age which promotes conformity. Written in a strong, lively personal manner, the book covers a great deal of scholarly material. It is never overbearing, and the extensive bibliography offers rich vistas for further study.
