Synopsis

Une édition de référence de Carmen de Prosper Mérimée, spécialement conçue pour la lecture sur les supports numériques.

« Je me jetai à ses pieds, je lui pris les mains, je les arrosai de mes larmes. Je lui rappelai tous les moments de bonheur que nous avions passés ensemble. Je lui offris de rester brigand pour lui plaire. Tout, monsieur, tout ; je lui offris tout, pourvu qu'elle voulût m'aimer encore !

Elle me dit :

– T'aimer encore, c'est impossible. Vivre avec toi, je ne le veux pas.

La fureur me possédait. Je tirai mon couteau. J'aurais voulu qu'elle eût peur et me demandât grâce, mais cette femme était un démon. »

(Extrait du Chapitre III)

 

About Prosper Mérimée

Nikolai Vasilevich Gogol was born in 1809 in the Ukraine. His father was an amateur playwright who had a small estate with a number of serfs. From the ages of 12 to 19, young Gogol attended a boarding school where he became known for his sharp wit and ability to amuse his classmates. After school he worked as a government clerk. He soon began writing memories of his childhood. His quaint depictions of the Ukrainian countryside marked his style and helped to make him famous. Gogol quickly gained fame and formed a friendship with the influential poet, Aleksandr Pushkin. Gogol is largely remembered for his realistic characterizations, his rich imagination, and his humorous style. His works include Mirgorod, a collection of short stories including Taras Bulba. Gogol's wit is evident in his short story, The Nose, where a man's nose wanders off around town in a carriage. Gogol's masterpiece is the novel Dead Souls. In this work, a swindler plots to buy from landowners their dead serfs. Towards the end of Gogol's life, his creative powers faded and he fled to Moscow. Here, he came under the power of a fanatical priest. Ten days before his death he burned some manuscripts of the second part of Dead Souls. He died of starvation in 1852, on the cusp of madness.
