Ne tirez pas sur l'oiseau moqueur by Harper Lee,Isabelle Hausser Summary

Dans une petite ville d'Alabama, au moment de la Grande Dépression, Atticus Finch élève seul ses deux enfants, Jem et Scout. Homme intègre et rigoureux, cet avocat est commis d'office pour défendre un Noir accusé d'avoir violé une Blanche. Ce bref résumé peut expliquer pourquoi ce livre, publié en 1960 - au cœur de la lutte pour les droits civiques -, connut un tel succès. Il ne suffit pas en revanche à comprendre comment ce roman est devenu un livre culte aux Etats-Unis et dans bien d'autres pays. C'est que, tout en situant son sujet en Alabama à une époque bien précise - les années 1930 -, Harper Lee a écrit un roman universel sur l'enfance confrontée aux préjugés, au mensonge, à la bigoterie et au mal. Racontée par Scout avec beaucoup de drôlerie, cette histoire tient du conte, de la court story américaine et du roman initiatique. Couronné par le Prix Pulitzer en 1961, Ne tirez pas sur l'oiseau moqueur s'est vendu à plus de 30 millions d'exemplaires dans le monde entier.

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee Summary

From Harper Lee comes a landmark new novel set two decades after her beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird. Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch – ‘Scout’ – returns home from New York City to visit her ageing father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past – a journey that can be guided only by one’s own conscience. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humour and effortless precision – a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context and new meaning to a classic.

Mockingbird by Charles J. Shields Summary

An extensively revised and updated edition of the bestselling biography of Harper Lee, reframed from the perspective of the recent publication of Lee's Go Set a Watchman To Kill a Mockingbird—the twentieth century's most widely read American novel—has sold thirty million copies and still sells a million yearly. In this in-depth biography, first published in 2006, Charles J. Shields brings to life the woman who gave us two of American literature's most unforgettable characters, Atticus Finch and his daughter, Scout. Years after its initial publication—with revisions throughout the book and a new epilogue—Shields finishes the story of Harper Lee's life, up to its end. There's her former agent getting her to transfer the copyright for To Kill a Mockingbird to him, the death of Lee's dear sister Alice, a fuller portrait of Lee’s editor, Tay Hohoff, and—most vitally—the release of Lee's long-buried first novel and the ensuing public devouring of what has truly become the book of the year, if not the decade: Lee's Go Set a Watchman.

Go Set a Watchman Teaching Guide by Harper Lee,Amy Jurskis Summary

Written in the 1950s but unpublished until recently, Go Set a Watchman is neither a prequel nor a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, and attempting to read it as a simple continuation of the story does not do the work justice. As the adult Jean Louise, "Scout," returns to Macomb to visit Atticus, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past—a journey that can only be guided by one’s own conscience. While many characters appear in both novels, some significant characters, like Boo Radley and Hank Clinton, exist in only one of the texts. Go Set a Watchman is also strikingly different in style and tone. Thematically complex and highly allusive, it is a novel that demands active and close reading. This ebook contains sample chapters from Go Set a Watchman and a teaching guide to help educators lead their students through an exploration of the themes, structure, and allusive references in Go Set a Watchman. Questions in the Guided Reading and Discussion section will help highlight the development of plot, character, and theme. Because the text features allusions that students are likely to be unfamiliar with, the guide also includes an index of annotated allusions to help facilitate close reading. Prompts for Writing and Research provide topics for longer writing tasks or research projects. Finally, this guide features an additional section that explores the writer’s craft by looking at both To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman.

Une comédie des erreurs by Nell Zink Summary

Dans une petite université de la Virginie, une jeune lesbienne idéaliste tombe amoureuse de son professeur de poésie, réputé pour ses frasques homosexuelles. Improbable mais pas impossible ¿ nous sommes au milieu des années 1960. S'ensuivent quelques nuits d'amour torrides, une grossesse inattendue, un mariage à la va-vite, un deuxième enfant, et un ressentiment qui tourne à la haine mutuelle. Alors Peggy plaque mari et fils pour disparaître avec sa fille de trois ans dans une cambrousse du sud des États-Unis. Elles squattent une bicoque délabrée et vivotent sous les identités usurpées d'une femme noire et de sa fille. La petite Karen est pâle et blonde, et alors ? À cette époque-là et dans ces régions-là, une goutte de sang noir dans un arbre généalogique suffit à justifier d'une appartenance à la race considérée jusque peu comme inférieure. Ce qui arrange Peggy, car c'est la planque idéale. Mais échappe-t-on jamais à ses origines? Les hasards du destin rapprocheront les membres de cette famille ô combien dysfonctionnelle, pour le meilleur et pour le pire.

To Kill a Mockingbird LP by Harper Lee Summary

"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel—a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice—but the weight of history will only tolerate so much. One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many dis-tinctions since its original publication in 1960. It has won the Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. It was also named the best novel of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal). HarperCollins is proud to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the book's publication with this special hardcover edition.

Mockingbird Grows Up by Michele Reutter,Jonathan S. Cullick Summary

Although Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird has attracted a great deal of scholarly and popular attention due to its engaging narrative and broad appeal to a sense of justice, little has been done to examine the modern classic through the lens of Lee's controversial "lost" novel Go Set a Watchman, published unexpectedly a year before the author's death. In Mockingbird Grows Up: Re-Reading Harper Lee since Watchman, Cheli Reutter and Jonathan S. Cullick assemble a team of scholars to take on the task of interpreting, contextualizing, and deconstructing To Kill a Mockingbird in the wake of Go Set a Watchman. The essays contained in this groundbreaking volume cover a range of literary topics, such as race, sexuality, language, and reading contexts. Critically, the volume revisits the question of African American characterization in Lee's work and reexamines the development of Atticus Finch, a character long believed to be an exemplar of justice and virtue in Lee's fiction. And perhaps most imperative, the editors take on questions regarding the publication of Go Set a Watchman, and Holly Blackford contributes an essay that places Go Set a Watchman within the pantheon of American literature. Literary scholars, educators, and those interested in southern literature will appreciate the new light this publication sheds on a classic American novel. Mockingbird Grows Up offers a deeper understanding of a canonical American work and prepares a new generation to engage with Harper Lee's appealing prose, complex characters, and influential metaphors.
