Ce degonfle de Harang avait tout de suite rapplique pour tenter de la demolir. Ou Guenassia. Presence et chaleur stylistique.
Mais que viulez vous : les gros sabots Albin Michel ne vaudront jamais la blancheur persil de Minuit aux yeux des bobos. De quoi s inquieter sur le palmares a venir. Daoud ou Salvayre sauveraient l honneur. Encore que? Pas sur d etre passionne par le podium cette annee. Apparemment pas le seul, comme Assouline le faisait remarquer avec un semblant de derision roborative. Je ne ferme absolument pas mon blog. Affirmation fausse. Il est ouvert. Ce faisant, par son holisme, cette critique devient paradoxalement une sorte de discours de la mode. Assouline comme J. Clopine fait pareil dans le Bray pour faire rappliquer le Clopin : elle pousse un meuglement le dernier samedi du mois….
On sent un connaisseur! Barozzi: Chill out Man! For a blind test, it would be a pleasure, the next time,You would come in the french Alps, and if it happens next winter, to have un moment extraordinaire: a ski lesson of mine. Je dois prendre la route, avec plein de fleurs. I absolutely devoured it.
The only part I wasn't sure about was the Jesuits showing up and their discussion of christian love linking in with the true love of Dao Sheng but even that was ok. A wonderful read, the English translation is very good, though if you can read the French I'd of course recommend that. I'm now going back and reading the rest in French Sigh I wish my French were better!!!
I can read wonderfully scholarly books on Taoism but struggle so much with novels!
I tried to read this several years ago and gave up and read the English translation. The was a beautiful story and lovely prose, even in translation but I'd much prefer to be able to read the original. Having to rethink my French re Sigh I wish my French were better!!! Having to rethink my French reading again to actually start improving. Je ne serais certainement pas partie chercher ce roman toute seule. J'en aurai mis Belle histoire d'amour en Chine.
Encore que? Il ne sait pas du tout ce qui va se passer ensuite et son esprit bat la campagne. XXII, dans Causeries du lundi, 27 juin , t. Mar 27, mintaka rated it it was amazing Shelves: french-lite-read. Mais le jour imperceptiblement grandissait. Sous toutes les pierres on trouvait des scorpions. The story is remarkably concentrated as far as time and space are concerned.
I hate saying this, but reading this book wasn't a pleasure at all. I did not get into the story, i tried But nothing So the storyline is great, the characters are really interesting, but I still wait for the spark I recommend it anyway! Quelle plume magnifique! Qui ne voudrait vivre une telle histoire d'amour?
This is a very beautiful and delicate novel about the enduring power of love, in all its forms. A mature healer monk gets to finally live the love of his life, now a forlorn wife, when he is called upon to take care of her health. They had met once and had felt the immediate burn of love in that one defining moment of their youth. Their love will unfold and bloom in eternity, which will be their time and place. While Cheng celebrates the couple's mystical union, he creates a counterpoint to This is a very beautiful and delicate novel about the enduring power of love, in all its forms.
While Cheng celebrates the couple's mystical union, he creates a counterpoint to the story that declines the very same mystical union, this time of a man and his god, as depicted through the arrival of Jesuits in China. This is a masterfully crafted novel, full of a profound understanding of man's relationship to loving as an active principle and a path to fullfilment.
Francois Cheng is a master craftsman who excels in his nuanced approach to the depiction of the human heart. Sep 08, Manatee rated it it was ok. This is one of the few times that I actually went out of the way to find a NoveList recommendation. The book did deliver at first. I was looking for a love story set during the Ming dynasty with concubines and courts and a stratified society.
The love story was delightful as a set up between a high born lady and a musician who catch glimpses of one another at a wedding. The musician falls instantly in love and this love changes the course of his whole life. So far, things are perfect and romanti This is one of the few times that I actually went out of the way to find a NoveList recommendation.
So far, things are perfect and romantic. But at the end the story just stopped without any conclusion. It just kind of faded away as if the author did not know how to pull everything together. It was weak.
Feb 25, Rebecca rated it liked it. After finishing this book I researched Buddhism and Taoism and found it added a whole new realm of understanding and interest in the book. When I also understood the authors background also researched I found the writing to be the most interesting part of the book.

They teach the 'right' way of thinking. Paris takes the cash that the rest of France does not get, but does that make them good. They lost the excellence finding for research because, well they were just not excellent. And would you really want to breathe the air of paris for a year?
It is better to look at courses and not universities, that is where the innovation in research and teaching lies. There is a real France beyond the myth, and a student will probably be better there. The French higher education system and French social and political structures as a general rule follows the Humboldt model and does not seek to make profit, but to educate its citizens this starkly contrasts, for instance, with the Anglo-American model.
French universities also publish in French though more and more do so in English as well today , which gives them less visibility when faced with universities that will do their utmost to meet the criteria laid out in the above-mentioned rankings, especially as far as research and publishing is concerned.
German universities face the same problem also based on the Humboldt model , but no one would consider either France or Germany to be anything but leaders in many fields. By contrast, I have met and taught to far too many students from top British and American universities, and sadly the average student had a much lower academic level and general knowledge than the average French student and - most importantly - had not been taught the value of critical thinking, an approach which is the building block of French education.
Both offer the highest level of academic teaching and obtaining a Master's degree in either can only suggest you are both highly resilient and disciplined.
