Tietoja tekijästä

Andre (Georges) Malraux, 1901- 1976 French novelist Andre Malraux was born in Paris to a wealthy family. His father was Fernand-Georges Malraux, a stockbroker, and his mother was Berthe (Lamy) Malraux. He attended the Lycee Condorcet and studied oriental languages at the Ecole des Langues näytä lisää Orientales. His parents separated when he was a child, and his mother brought him up. His father committed suicide in 1930. Malraux was also considered an adventurer, art historian, and statesman. He was the Minister for Cultural Affairs for eleven years from 1958-1969. He worked as an art editor at Gallimard publishers in Paris. He attended archaeological expeditions in Iran and Afghanistan. At the age of twenty-one, Malraux went to Cambodia with his wife, writer Clara Goldsmidt, where he was imprisoned for taking bas-reliefs from a Khmer temple. In 1925, he went to Saigon and joined the anti-colonial Young Annam League. In World War II, Malraux served in a French tank Unit. He was wounded and captured, but he managed to escape and join the Resistance where he met General Charles de Gaulle. He escaped a second capture in 1944 and received the Medaille de la Resistance, the Croix de Guerre and the British Distinguished Service Order for his service. Malraux's short novel "Le Temps De Mapris" (1935), tells the story of a Communist who's held prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. In the Spanish Civil War, Malraux fought for the Republicans (1936-1939). He was wounded twice in the effort to stop Franco's advance on Madrid. His novel "L'Espoir" (1937) tells of Republican Spain in combat. This was also adapted for the screen in 1938 and the film was titled Sierrade Teruel. After "L'Espoir", Malraux divorced and had a liaison with Josette Clotis. She died in a railroad accident in 1945. At this time, Malraux broke from communism and began writing non-fiction. In 1948, Malrauxe married Marie-Madeline Lioux, a concert pianist and widow of his half-brother. In 1961, he lost his two sons in an accident. In 1958, when de Gaulle came to power, he was appointed first Minister of Information and then, a year later, Minister of State for Cultural Affairs. In 1967, Malraux's autobiography "Anti-Memoires" was published. In it, Malraux mixed fact with fiction and excerpts from his novels. Later volumes of his personal recollections involved Pablo Picasso, Leopold Sedar Senghor and de Gaulle. In "Felled Oaks" (1971), Malraux tells of his conversations with de Gaulle, his political idol. After leaving politics, Malraux retired to a suburb of Paris and continued to write until his death on November 23, 1976. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

De Gaule : Pourquoi les Espagnols ne m’aimeraient-ils pas ? Ils aiment bien Don Quichotte !

Un roman de Malraux que je ne connaissais même pas de nom, inspiré de sa dernière rencontre avec Charles de Gaulle, à Colombey-les-deux-églises quelques semaines avant sa mort. Je ne sais pas ce qui est réel et ce qui est fictif dans ce texte, mais il est plein de l’admiration de Malraux pour le Grand Charles, en même temps qu’il montre une grande érudition et une analyse politique de long terme intéressantes. C’est un joli texte, plein d’amour et de nostalgie. Principalement destiné aux admirateurs de Malraux ou de de Gaulle, voire des deux.

About the Chinese Revolution 1927.

The novel is the story of the 1927 Shanghai massacre as experienced by several fictional characters representing various points of view including Chinese and Russian Communists, terrorists, Western businessmen and dilettantes, and members of the factions of the Kuomintang. In addition to the multiway political strife, there is personal animosity, philosophical existential angst and betrayal. Malraux was an interesting character himself, perhaps somewhat of a self-invented con man (http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/10/books/review/malraux-one-mans-fate.html), but I don't think any less of the novel for that - after all, he did write it.
Ultimately, I found the story moving (Nabokov apparently ridiculed it as melodramatic), but the text was sometimes awkward and difficult to read. It won the Prix Goncourt in 1933 and I suspect that the problem is with the translation. There is another English translation by Alastair MacDonald; it is out of print, but I recommend looking for it.
----------
Randomly chosen examples of these not infrequent difficulties are:
"If you don't have confidence in the International, mustn't belong to the Party." [Is there a word missing here?]

" 'Yes, Gisors, Kyoshi.(1)'
1. Kyo is an abbreviation." [Is abbreviation the correct English word to mean nickname?]
---------
And...a favorite quote that might be useful in the future:
"When you're through prostituting yourselves to the State, you take your cowardice for wisdom, and believe that to be a Venus de Milo all you need is to be armless..."

Nel 1925, dopo un paio di esperienze in Asia e prima della sua "trilogia asiatica", Malraux pubblica questo dialogo immaginario fra un francese e un cinese, strumento per esprimere le sue idee sulle "tentazioni" (e sulle malattie dell'occidente). Come rimarcano le note editoriali, questi pensieri degli anni '20 prefigurano la sensibilità del pensiero francese a (breve) venire, anticipando molte riflessioni sul senso del controllo del proprio destino, sul rapporto fra cultura e tecnica, sulla spettacolarizzazione della vita, nonché sui semi in nuce della mutazione - o forse della decadenza - della cultura cinese stessa. Da leggere.… (lisätietoja)
