Ben-Hur by Lew Wallace Summary

"En reposant la plume après avoir fini d’écrire ce livre, je répétais en moi-même, avec Balthasar : « Dieu seul est grand ». J’étais devenu chrétien. " Si Lew Wallace est une figure historique aux États-Unis, il le doit moins à ses titres de général de l’armée de l’Union pendant la guerre de Sécession, de gouverneur du Nouveau Mexique, d’adversaire de Billy the Kid, qu’à celui d’auteur de Ben-Hur. Depuis sa première publication en 1880, cet ouvrage de 600 pages dépassa en tirage tous les autres (la Bible exceptée), jusqu’à la sortie de Autant en emporte le vent en 1936. Dès 1900 il avait été réédité 36 fois en anglais et traduit en 20 langues.

Ben-Hur by Lewis Wallace Summary

Lorsque Judah Ben-Hur retrouve son ami d'enfance Messala, celui-ci est devenu commandant des légions romaines en Judée. A la suite d'un accident qu'on l'accuse d'avoir provoqué, Ben-Hur est condamné à devenir esclave, tandis que sa mère et sa soeur sont jetées en prison et que ses biens sont confisqués. Cette sentence, Messala est chargé de l'exécuter. Et c'est ainsi que Ben-Hur se retrouve enchaîné au fond d'une galère. Là, il rencontre un chef romain nommé Arrius à qui il sauve la vie pendant une bataille en mer. Arrius l'adopte et fait de lui son héritier. Devenu immensément riche, il va ainsi profiter de cette fortune pour mener à bien son sombre dessein : la vengeance... Ben-Hur, roman de l'écrivain américain Lewis Wallace publié en 1880, relate l'histoire d'un prince juif fictif, Judah Ben-Hur, à l'époque de Jésus-Christ. Il s'agit de l'histoire d'un esclave qui se rebella et devint un champion de courses de chars. En 1900, Ben-Hur devient aux États-Unis le roman le plus vendu du xixe siècle, devant La Case de l'oncle Tom de Harriet Beecher Stowe. En France, le roman est publié dès 1885. Il a été traduit dans quasiment toutes les langues.

Bigger than Ben-Hur by Barbara Ryan,Milette Shamir Summary

First published in 1880, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ became a best-seller. The popular novel spawned an 1899 stage adaptation, reaching audiences of over 10 million, and two highly successful film adaptations. For over a century, it has become a ubiquitous pop cultural presence, representing a deeply powerful story and monumental experience for some and a defining work of bad taste and false piety for others. The first and only collection of essays on this pivotal cultural icon, Bigger Than "Ben-Hur" addresses Lew Wallace’s beloved classic to explore its polarizing effect and to expand the contexts within which it can be studied. In the essays gathered here, scholars approach Ben-Hur from multiple directions— religious and secular, literary, theatrical, and cinematic—to understand not just one story in varied formats but also what they term the "Ben-Hur tradition." Drawing from a wide range of disciplines, contributions include the rise of the Protestant novel in the United States; relationships between and among religion, spectacle, and consumerism; the "New Woman" in early Hollywood; and a "wish list" for future adaptations, among others. Together, these essays explore how this remarkably fluid story of faith, love, and revenge has remained relevant to audiences across the globe for over 130 years.

Ben-Hur by Barry Clifton Summary

For the love of a woman...For the love of his people...For the love of God...Ben-Hur: The Odyssey a legend lives again. A.D. 59 A shadow falls over the Roman Empire as Nero, the young emperor, begins to assert a foreboding independence. Disregarding the counsel of his advisers, he openly flaunts his unfaithfulness to his wife Octavia, and then orders the murder of his scheming mother Agrippina. Into this looming storm comes Judah Ben-Hur, his wife Esther and their friend, the great apostle Paul, who has been arrested for his missionary activities. Paul has appealed his conviction to Nero, and Judah - the founder of the church in Rome - offers to defend him, setting up a fateful collision of two worlds. Judah Ben-Hur, one of literature's great fictional heroes, rides again in this stirring sequel to the classic novel by General Lew Wallace. Like its predecessor, Ben-Hur: The Odyssey is woven into a solidly historical tapestry. Great events are brought to life from the first century's most turbulent decade, in this epic tale of love, passion and faith.
