Les enfants de minuit by Salman Rushdie Summary

"Saleem Sinai, le héros de cet extraordinaire roman picaresque, est né à Bombay le 15 août 1947, à minuit sonnant, au moment où l'Inde accède à l'indépendance. Comme les mille et un enfants nés lors de ce minuit exceptionnel, il est doté de pouvoirs magiques et va se retrouver mystérieusement enchaîné à l'histoire de son pays. 'J'ai été un avaleur de vies, dit-il, et pour me connaître, moi seul, il va vous falloir avaler également l'ensemble.' Alors se déroule sous nos yeux l'étonnante et incroyable histoire de la famille Sinai : disputes familiales, aventures amoureuses, maladies terribles, guérisons miraculeuses – un tourbillon de désastres et de triomphes... Ce récit baroque et burlesque est aussi un pamphlet politique impitoyable. Élu en 2008 meilleur Booker Prize de l'histoire du prestigieux prix anglais, ce roman paru en 1980 a profondément influencé la littérature anglo-saxonne des trente dernières années."

The screenplay of Midnight's children by Salman Rushdie Summary

In 1993, Salman Rushdie's novel MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN was declared the 'Booker of Bookers', the best book to win the Booker Prize in its first 25 years. The BBC began the process of adapting it for television. After three years had passed, two producers and two directors had come and gone, and the first scriptwriter's attempts had been set aside, Salman Rushdie agreed to adapt his own work. The result has been hailed as one of the most brilliant adaptations in television history. Within months of the screenplay's completion, the project was ready to start filming on location in Sri Lanka. Then, just weeks before principal photography was to begin, the Sri Lankan authorities abruptly changed their minds and withdrew permission to film, without giving any reasons. In his enthralling introduction, Rushdie describes the evolution of the screenplay, and the project's political defeat. As for the screenplay itself, it cries out to be filmed. Perhaps one day it will be.

Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie,Simon Reade,Tim Supple Summary

Using a wide range of legal, administrative and literary sources, this study explores the role of the royal pardon in the exercise and experience of authority in Tudor England. It examines such abstract intangibles as power, legitimacy, and the state by looking at concrete life-and-death decisions of the Tudor monarchs. Drawing upon the historiographies of law and society, political culture, and state formation, mercy is used as a lens through which to examine the nature and limits of participation in the early modern polity. Contemporaries deemed mercy as both a prerogative and duty of the ruler. Public expectations of mercy imposed restraints on the sovereign's exercise of power. Yet the discretionary uses of punishment and mercy worked in tandem to mediate social relations of power in ways that most often favoured the growth of the state.

Classics by Jane Gleeson-White Summary

'What makes a classic? For me, it's a book I can't imagine having lived without; a truthful, wholly imagined world, in astonishing language, by a writer unafraid to probe those things that scare us and scar us and make us humana' - Charlotte Wood, author of The Submerged Cathedral, in CLASSICS Mark Twain defined a literary classic as 'something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read'. But what was true in the nineteenth century doesn't hold today. In our uncertain modern times, not only do books considered classics still fill the shelves of many bookshops, but these books continue to exert a powerful influence on contemporary culture - some in obvious ways, such as the film and television adaptations of of the works of Homer, Jane Austen, George Eliot, Charles Dickens and Henry James; other in less obvious ways, through their enduring impact on fellow writers, artists and musicians. When Jane Gleeson-White wrote an article on classic books for Good Reading magazine, she was amazed at the response it elicited: students, teachers and reading groups were hungering for recommendations from 'the canon', the list of classic texts that until quite recently was compulsory reading in Australian schools. The result is this beautiful book on why the greatest works of literature matter, and what they can give us today. As well, the book contains many great contemporary authors' lists of their favourite classics - from J.K. Rowling, who loves Jane Austen, to J.M. Coetzee, whose 'top ten' includes Cervantes and Samuel Beckett. CLASSICS is an accessible, impassioned and inspiring guide to the great books of the past, and will be eagerly embraced and discussed by passionate and grateful readers.

The Girl at Midnight - tome 1 : De plumes et de feu by Melissa GREY Summary

Un univers inédit qui sort des sentiers battus et explore une mythologie aux créatures originales loin des traditionnels vampires et loups-garous ! Sous les rues de New York, cachés aux yeux du monde, vivent les Avicen, une ancienne race d'êtres mi-homme mi-oiseau. Aucun humain ne les a jamais vus. À part Echo. Lorsqu'elle était enfant, les Avicen l'ont recueillie et à présent, âgée de 17 ans, elle joue pour eux les pickpockets à la surface. La jeune fille est maline, audacieuse, voir même insolente, mais surtout, loyale à la seule famille qu'elle connait. Alors quand la guerre contre les Drakharin, un peuple mi-homme mi-dragon, menace à nouveau, Echo accepte sans hésiter la mission qu'on lui confie : trouver l'Oiseau de Feu, un artefact magique que l'on dit chargé d'un très grand pouvoir. Mais la jeune fille n'est pas la seule à convoiter l'objet, et Caïus, l'étrange jeune homme qui accepte de l'aider pourrait bien être la plus grande menace pesant sur cette mission...
