4.0 out of 5 stars L'amour avec un grand A, September 28, 2010

This review is from: Fort Comme la Mort (Strong As Death, in French) (French Edition) (Kindle Edition)
Olivier Bertin, peintre parisien, a depuis des années une liaison avec la contesse de Guillefoy. Arrive sur scène la fille de cette dernière, jeune, fraiche, et qui rappelle au peintre les émotions lointaines d'un amour neuf, tant elle ressemble, de par sa voix, ses gestes et son visage, ce que fut sa mère.
Le roman décline l'amour sous toutes ses formes, des plus tranquilles aux plus désespérées. Le mariage urbain et sans histoire du conte et de sa femme, l'amour inquiet et jaloux de la contesse pour le peintre,et finalement, "l'amour éperdu d'un vieil homme pour une jeune fille" pour reprendre les termes de Guy de Maupassant.
En trame, le lecteur retrouve la vie parisienne d'un autre siècle. On y est imbu de soi-mÍme, tourné vers le plaisir, les ambitions politiques ou artistiques. Les sentiments prennent une place prépondérante dans ces vies ou peu de choses sont accomplies.
C'est une oeuvre magistrale et poétique. Attention cependant : l'édition pour Kindle est abominable. La mise en page coupe les phrases, certaines lignes ont un seul mot, on passe des lignes sans raison...c'est distrayant au point d'en Ítre fatiguant. 5 étoiles pour le texte, 1 pour l'édition !
