The Mexican dream, or, The interrupted thought of Amerindian civilizations by J.-M. G Le Clzio( Book )

54 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not one dream but many unfold in J.M.G. Le Clezio's conjuring of the consciousness of Mexico, a powerful evocation of the imaginings that made and unmade an ancient culture. "What motivated me," Le Clezio has said, "was a sort of dream about what has disappeared and what could have been." A widely respected French novelist who for many years has studied pre-Columbian Mexico, Le Clezio imagined how the thought of early Indian civilizations might have evolved if not for the interruption of European conquest." "In an unprecedented way, his book takes us into the dream that was the religion of the Aztecs, which in its own apocalyptic visions anticipated the coming of the Spanish conquerors. Here the dream of the conquistadores rises before us, too, the glimmering idea of gold drawing Europe into the Mexican dream. Against the religion and thought of the Aztecs and the Tarascans and the Europeans in Mexico, Le Clezio also shows us those of the "barbarians" of the north, the nomadic Indians beyond the pale of the Aztec frontier." "Finally, Le Clezio's book is a dream of the present, a meditation on what in Amerindian civilizations - in their language, in their way of telling tales, of wanting to survive their own destruction - moved the poet, playwright, and actor Antonin Artaud and motivates Le Clezio in this book. The author's deep identification with pre-Columbian cultures, whose faith told them the wheel of time would bring their gods and their beliefs back to them, finds fitting expression in this extraordinary book, which brings the dream around."--Jacket

"Que reste-t-il des émotions, des rêves, des désirs quand tout disparaît? L'homme d'Aden, l'empoisonneur de Harrar sont-ils les mêmes que l'adolescent furieux qui poussa une nuit la porte du café de la rue Madame, son regard sombre passant sur un enfant de neuf ans qui était mon grand-père? Je marche dans toutes ces rues, j'entends le bruit de mes talons qui résonne dans la nuit, rue Victor-Cousin, rue Serpente, place Maubert, dans les rues de la Contrescarpe. Celui que je cherche n'a plus de nom. Il est moins qu'une ombre, moins qu'une trace, moins qu'un fantôme. Il est en moi comme une vibration, comme un désir, un élan de l'imagination, un rebond du cœur, pour mieux m'envoler. D'ailleurs je prends demain l'avion pour l'autre bout du monde. L'autre extrémité du temps."--Back cover
