La route bleue by Kenneth White( Book )
16 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kenneth White, essayiste, poète et philosophe, a largement mérité le prix Médicis étranger 1983, même si plusieurs de ses livres publiés antérieurement sont meilleurs que ##La route bleue## (cf. en particulier ##Lettres de Gourgounel##). Il s'agit du récit d'un voyage de Montréal au Labrador, au cours duquel l'auteur a confronté une lecture et un rêve d'enfance à la réalité, d'une quête initiatique sous le double signe du taoïsme et de la nordicité (on retrouve ici l'inspiration des poèmes de ##Terre de diamant##, A. Eibel, 1977). En nomade intellectuel, bon vivant, adepte des "méditations géomentales", l'auteur - le plus français des Ecossais (?) - a presque réussi à sortir de l'histoire pour entrer dans la géographie". La chose eût été plus simple si White n'avait pas emporté avec lui une bonne partie de sa bibliothèque (d'où l'abondance excessive des citations). Un bon livre quand même. [SDM]

L'esprit nomade by Kenneth White( Book )
11 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Le nom de Kenneth White est lié non seulement à une œuvre considérable de poète et de prosateur, mais aussi à un projet culturel d'envergure, qui a son point de départ dans la notion de " nomadisme intellectuel ". Si le terme général de " nomadisme "est dans l'air du temps depuis plusieurs décennies, ce livre, un des premiers, en a présenté une base théorique, précise et claire. La première partie, historique, plonge dans le contexte critique qui s'est ouvert en Occident dès le milieu du XIXe siècle pour en dégager la figure du " nomade " porteur de nouvelles énergies et d'un nouvel espace. Suivent cinq " œuvres-vies ", exemplaires par la diversité de leurs recherches, leur densité et leur puissance rayonnante. La dernière partie définit une géographie mentale inédite à partir de trois points de vue : philosophique, scientifique, poétique."--P. [4] of cover
