Mangeclous : surnommé aussi longues dents ... by Albert Cohen( Book )

97 editions published between 1938 and 2010 in 13 languages and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" Mangeclous est un vaste roman jovial et gaillard - mais dont la belle humeur est veinée d'humanité et de mélancolie. Comme dans Solal, un des lieux de l'action est l'île grecque de Céphalonie et son curieux ghetto. Les Juifs de Cohen ne sont pas ceux de Zangwill. Ce sont de bienheureux naïfs qui participent à la joie d'un climat lumineux, d'une mer tiède et d'un ciel bienveillant. Dans cette foule grouillante se détache un merveilleux quintette, les Valeureux, tous des Solal, issus de Juifs originaires de Provence mais installés à Céphalonie depuis des générations. Beaux parleurs, brouillons et passionnés, paresseux, menteurs, ingénus, universellement incompétents, naïvement amoureux de la France qui est demeurée leur patrie et dont ils parlent la langue. Dans Solal, les Valeureux ne jouaient qu'un rôle de second plan. Dans Mangeclous, ils ont pris la meilleure place. Ils y folâtrent et s'en donnent à cœur joie. L'écrivain épouse l'âme de sarace en des scènes et des dialogues d'une vérité comique irrésistible. Le famélique Mangeclous, l'homme aux cent métiers, est un faux avocat, toujours en quête de nourritures et de profits. Truculente figure que ce grandiose menteur doué d'une éloquence torrentielle et d'une faim implacable. A Céphalonie il vaque avec passion à des occupations chimériques, sublimes et commerciales, pieds nus mais en chapeau haut-de-forme, toujours toussant - et avec une vigueur qui met à mal les vitres des fenêtres. Mais un jour, un mystérieux cryptogramme arrive à Céphalonie, et Mangeclous s'embarque, accompagné de ses amis. C'est alors que commence une série d'aventures "extravagantes et hilarantes", à Genève entre autres..." (Payot)

Bella del Señor by Albert Cohen( Book )

28 editions published between 1987 and 2018 in Spanish and English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Situada en Ginebra y Francia, en 1936, en una época en que el antisemitismo alcanza en Alemania su paroxismo, esta novela relata, con lirismo romántico unido a su ironía feroz, la relación exasperada entre Solal, judío, alto funcionario de la Sociedad de las Naciones, y Ariane, la aristócrata aria casada con un subordinado de Solal, desde su encuentro hasta la agonía final , pasando por la conquista, la pasión y la implacable degradación de los sentimientos. Para combatir la saciedad, los amantes recurren a todo tipo de métodos: celos retrospectivos, humillaciones morales y todas las recetas eróticas; este libro de amor es tambien un retrato de los horrores de la carne. Tanto por el análisis de los celos como por el relato de la seducción o por su pesimismo radical, casi metafísico, respecto al mito del amor puro, Albert Cohen, en esta búsqueda del Absoluto a través del amor, nos ha dejado páginas que pertenecen ya a la leyenda y que durante largo tiempo continuarán forjando la sensibilidad de los lectores.
