1 Consolation - Anna Gavalda & Alison Anderson
Auteur : Anna Gavalda & Alison Anderson
Genre : Lettres
An international bestseller and French publishing sensation Consolation is a dazzling, heartbreaking tale of one man, two remarkable women and an unforgettable transvestite.

Charles Balanda is forty-seven; a successful architect, he is constantly on the move. But from the moment he hears about the death of the woman he once loved - Anouk, the tragically big-hearted mother of a childhood friend - his life begins to unravel until, one day, he finds himself on a Paris pavement covered in blood. But fate brings him one final chance to be happy in Kate, an enchanting young woman, herself damaged but fearless and in love with life.

The resulting story is a triumphant, spellbinding and ultimately consoling novel about the power of a second chance.

2 La consolation - Flavie Flament
Auteur : Flavie Flament
Genre : Romans et littérature
Je n’aurais jamais imaginé mener l’enquête sur ma propre vie. J’ai fait un long voyage dont je suis ressortie extraordinairement vivante, avide de mon prochain et d’existence. Mais le trajet fut long, solitaire, douloureux et angoissant.
Un voyage dans une mémoire enfouie, quelque part, au fond de moi, un coffre à secrets scellé du sceau de la honte, de la protection, des mensonges et des aveuglements. On l’appelle la mémoire traumatique. C’est un fantôme qui vous poursuit, assaillant invisible de vos nuits blanches et de vos bonheurs troublés. J’ai subi les premiers assauts du souvenir, sorte de flashs venant d’un infini indéfini, anéantie, soumise, interdite devant les hurlements d’un passé que plus rien n’empêchait de surgir. Alors j’ai décidé de faire face. J’ai laissé remonter les images de l’enfance, dans un désordre fou, j’ai essuy

Houellebecq
6 Houellebecq, l'art de la consolation - Agathe Novak-Lechevalier
Auteur : Agathe Novak-Lechevalier
Genre : Politique et actualité
« On colle volontiers à Michel Houellebecq l’étiquette d’écrivain cynique et dépressif. Il me semble pourtant assez improbable que les gens se précipitent pour acheter une littérature purement “déprimiste”. Le succès en librairie prouve plutôt que ses lecteurs, contre les polémiques et les anathèmes convenus, sentent d’instinct que ses livres proposent autre chose.
Lire Houellebecq, c’est faire l’épreuve d’une résistance au monde contemporain, c’est percevoir ce lien qui par le rire et l’empathie défie l’“effacement progressif des relations humaines” ; c’est surtout comprendre pourquoi la poésie peut seule triompher de la désolation qui est notre lot commun. Contre la souffrance, une seule consolation possible : la littérature. »

8 Love and Other Consolation Prizes - Jamie Ford
Auteur : Jamie Ford
Genre : Histoire
From the bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet comes a powerful novel, inspired by a true story, about a boy whose life is transformed at Seattle’s epic 1909 World’s Fair.

“An evocative, heartfelt, beautifully crafted story that shines a light on a fascinating, tragic bit of forgotten history.”—Kristin Hannah, author of The Nightingale

For twelve-year-old Ernest Young, a charity student at a boarding school, the chance to go to the World’s Fair feels like a gift. But only once he’s there, amid the exotic exhibits, fireworks, and Ferris wheels, does he discover that he is the one who is actually the prize. The half-Chinese orphan is astounded to learn he will be raffled off—a healthy boy “to a good home.”

The winning ticket belongs to the flamboyant madam of a high-class

12 The Nutmeg of Consolation - Patrick O'Brian
Auteur : Patrick O'Brian
Genre : Histoire
Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. Now, for the first time, they are available in electronic book format, so a whole new generation of readers can be swept away on the adventure of a lifetime. This is the fourteenth book in the series.

Patrick O’Brian is regarded by many as the greatest living historical novelist writing in English. In The Nutmeg of Consolation, Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin begin stranded on an uninhabited island in the Dutch East Indies, attacked by ferocious Malay pirates. They contrive their escape, but after a stay in Batavia and a change of ship, they are caught up in a night chase in the fiercely tidal waters and then embroiled in the much more insidious conflicts of the terrifying penal settlements of New South Wales. It is one of O’Brian’s most accompl

C’est une Muse en deuil qui me dicte ces chants,
Aujourd’hui trempés de mes larmes.

Oui, les Muses, du moins, m’ont escorté sans peur
Dans la voie où mon cœur succombe ;
Gloire de mon printemps, d’une dernière fleur

15 Consolation et action - Guillaume Causse
Auteur : Guillaume Causse
Genre : Religion et spiritualité
Experts du discernement, impliqués dans la société, les jésuites ne cessent d’attirer par leur rayonnement et une spiritualité ouverte sur le monde. Dans ce livre, Guilhem Causse montre que si l’action est le but de cette spiritualité, elle passe par un préalable que saint Ignace de Loyola appelait « consolation », qui est issu de la décision d’aimer Dieu et de tout lui remettre. Face à la complexité de notre époque, la spiritualité jésuite provoque une réflexion exigeante et enthousiasmante sur la manière de vivre sa foi et de repenser l’orientation fondamentale de son existence.

L’unico in grado di darle conforto è Liam Dempsey, il migliore amico di suo marito, che le sarà vicino per onorare la promessa che aveva fatto ad Aaron prima che lui partisse per la sua ultima missione. Ma né Liam né Natalie potevano immaginare che da quella vicinanza potesse nascere un rapporto che andasse oltre la semplice amicizia, per diventare qualcosa di sconvolgente a cui neanche loro riescono a dare un nome.

Consolations
20 Consolations - David Whyte
Auteur : David Whyte
Genre : Philosophie
With the imagery of a poet and the reflection of a philosopher, David Whyte turns his attention to 52 ordinary words, each its own particular doorway into the underlying currents of human life. 

Beginning with Alone and closing with Work, each chapter is a meditation on meaning and context, an invitation to shift and broaden our perspectives on the inevitable vicissitudes of life: pain and joy, honesty and anger, confession and vulnerability, the experience of feeling besieged and the desire to run away from it all. Through this lens, procrastination may be a necessary ripening, hiding an act of freedom, and shyness the appropriate confusion and helplessness that accompanies the first stage of revelation.

Consolations invites readers into a poetic and thoughtful consideration of words whose meaning and interpretation

Auteur : Albine Novarino
Genre : Religion et spiritualité
« Pour moi, la mort est une rencontre longtemps retardée avec un ami. » « A l’heure de mourir, n’ayons pas peur. Nous nous verrons en pleine lumière devant notre père… » Il n’a cessé de l’appler de ses vœux. La mort n’a voulu de lui que le 22 janvier 2007 : l’abbé Pierre avait 94 ans. Porte-parole des plus démunis, il s’était fixé pour mission d’éveiller nos consciences, de mettre un terme à l’indifférence et l’injustice. Pendant plus de cinquante ans, il a œuvré, mais aussi transmis ses principes de vie, parfois en marge de sa condition d’ecclesiastique.
En s’appuyant sur une lecture de l’œuvre de l’Abbé Pierre, de ses discours, éditoriaux et textes peu connus, Albine Novarino a rassemblé ses écrits sur la mort, thème que le fondateur d’Emmaüs abordait sans tabou. Ces textes résonnent à la fois comme un testament et une le

27 The Consolation of Philosophy - Ancius Boethius
Auteur : Ancius Boethius
Genre : Philosophie
'The Consolation of Philosophy' has been described as the single most important and influential work in the West on Medieval and early Renaissance Christianity, and is also the last great Western work of the Classical Period. 

Written while Boethius was in prison awaiting execution, 'The Consolation of Philosophy' consists of a dialogue in alternating prose and verse between the author, lamenting his own sorrows, and a majestic woman, who is the incarnation of his guardian Philosophy. The woman develops a modified form of Neo-Platonism and Stoicism, demonstrating the unreality of earthly fortunes, then proving that the highest good and the highest happiness are in God, and reconciling the apparent contradictions concerning the existence of everything. 

This edition includes a lengthy introduction and detailed page notes by classical scholar H. R. James.

28 The Consolation of Philosophy - Boethius
Auteur : Boethius
Genre : Philosophie
The book called 'The Consolation of Philosophy' was throughout the Middle Ages, and down to the beginnings of the modern epoch in the sixteenth century, the scholar's familiar companion. Few books have exercised a wider influence in their time. It has been translated into every European tongue, and into English nearly a dozen times, from King Alfred's paraphrase to the translations of Lord Preston, Causton, Ridpath, and Duncan, in the eighteenth century. The belief that what once pleased so widely must still have some charm is my excuse for attempting the present translation. The great work of Boethius, with its alternate prose and verse, skilfully fitted together like dialogue and chorus in a Greek play, is unique in literature, and has a pathetic interest from the time and circumstances of its composition. It ought not to be forgotten. Those who can go to the original will find their r

Auteur : Charles Spurgeon
Genre : Christianisme
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers". Spurgeon was to 19th century England what D. L Moody was to America. Although Spurgeon never attended theological school, by the age of twenty-one he was the most popular preacher in London.

A strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, and opposing the liberal and pragmatic theological tendencies in the Church of his day, Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people, often up to 10 times each week at different places. Spurgeon was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London

There is not another point of view to compare with it in the capital of ideas. We feel ourselves on the quarter-deck, as it were, of a gigantic vessel. We dream of Paris from the days of the Romans to those of the Franks, from the Normans to the Burgundians, the Middle-Ages, the Valois, Henri IV., Louis XIV., Napoleon, and Louis-Philippe. Vestiges are before us of all those sovereignties, in monuments that recall their memory. The cupola of Sainte-Genevieve towers above the Latin quarter.

Une Consolation, pense Franca en chavirant dans les bras de Philippe Valdieu comme aux accents de la musique de Franz Liszt. Ce sera beaucoup plus. Pour elle, surtout. Une symphonie en passion majeure, bien tempérée, toutefois, par le regard lucide et volontiers narquois que Franca porte sur Philippe, prototype de l’égoïsme masculin, infidèle à son épouse mais fidèle, au fond, à son mariage. Et qui, en bon financier, sait parfaitement équilibrer la balance de ses comptes amoureux. C’est oublier qu’en amour comme en musique, le destin frappe toujours trois fois...

Enfant en Polynésie, adolescent à Madagascar, puis locataire à l'année d'une chambre d'hôtel parisien, Jean-Luc Coatalem a toujours aimé les voyages, fussent-ils immobiles. Devenu journaliste, il a aussi sillonné le monde, happé par un désir de voir autant que par une furieuse envie d'échapper, de recommencer. Ce récit faussement autobiographique, qui oscille entre humour et poésie, propose, au-delà d'un éloge du déplacement et de la découverte, une quête de ces hautes clairières où se mêlent le réel et l'imaginaire. Le Pékin mystérieux de Victor Segalen, les Marquises sublimées de Stevenson, l'île de Robinson, la Bretagne immémoriale et l'improbable rocher de Pitcairn, l'histoire d'une graine magique ou d'un aïeul subjugué par l'Indochine, autant de pistes et de traces que remonte notre auteur.

42 Penelope Fitzgerald and the Consolation of Fiction - Christopher J. Knight
Auteur : Christopher J. Knight
Genre : Critique littéraire
Christopher J. Knight’s Penelope Fitzgerald and the Consolation of Fiction is a study of the British author Penelope Fitzgerald (1916 – 2000), attending to her nine novels, especially as viewed through the lens both of "late style" (she published her first novel, The Golden Child, at age sixty) and, in her words, of "consolation, that is, for doubts and fears as well as for naked human loss." As in Shakespeare’s late, religiously inflected, romances, the two concerns coincide; and Fitzgerald’s ostensible comedies are marked by a clear experience of the tragic and the palpable sense of a world that verges on the edge of indifference to human loss. Yet Fitzgerald, her late age pessimism notwithstanding, seeks (with the aid of her own religious understandings), in each of her novels, to wrestle meaning, consolation and even comedy from circumstances not noticeably propitious.

44 Separation, Mourning and Consolation in la Route D'altmont. - Quebec Studies
Auteur : Quebec Studies
Genre : Histoire
Gabrielle Roy's first novel was permeated by loss and separation; its title Bonheur d'occasion (1945) even suggests the attempt at replacement that, as we shall see, often is part of consolation. However, the central role of mourning in Roy's works has only come into sharp focus with the appearance of her posthumous texts. The first part of her autobiography published in 1984 included an account of the death of her father; the culmination of the Lettres a Bernadette (1988) is her anticipated mourning for her dying sister,(1) and the initial stages of her grief work for her mother occupy the whole of the Le Temps qui m'a manque (1997). In fact, the 1943 death of her mother Melina Roy, which she relived first in the death of her sister Anna in 1964, and even more intensely through the death of her dear Dedette six year later in 1970, penetrates most aspects of her writings. In a sense, muc

48 The Consolation of Philosophy - Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius
Auteur : Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius
Genre : Philosophie
Consolation of Philosophy (Latin: Consolatio Philosophiae) is a philosophical work by Boethius, written around the year 524. It has been described as the single most important and influential work in the West on Medieval and early Renaissance Christianity, and is also the last great Western work of the Classical Period.
Anicius Manlius Severinus Boëthius, commonly called Boethius (c. 480–524 or 525 AD), was a philosopher of the early 6th century. He was born in Rome to an ancient and prominent family which included emperors Petronius Maximus and Olybrius and many consuls. His father, Flavius Manlius Boethius, was consul in 487 after Odoacer deposed the last Western Roman Emperor. Boethius, of the noble Anicia family, entered public life at a young age and was already a senator by the age of 25. Boethius himself was consul in 510 in the kingdom of the Ostrogoths. In 522 he saw his

49 Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy as a Product of Late Antiquity - Antonio Donato
Auteur : Antonio Donato
Genre : Philosophie
In the last fifty years the field of Late Antiquity has advanced significantly. Today we have a picture of this period that is more precise and accurate than before. However, the study of one of the most significant texts of this age, Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy, has not benefited enough from these advances in scholarship. Antonio Donato aims to fill this gap by investigating how the study of the Consolation can profit from the knowledge of Boethius' cultural, political and social background that is available today.
The book focuses on three topics: Boethius' social/political background, his notion of philosophy and its sources, and his understanding of the relation between Christianity and classical culture. These topics deal with issues that are of crucial importance for the exegesis of the Consolation. The study of Boethius' social/political backgrou

50 Lettre de consolation à un ami écrivain - Jean-Michel Delacomptée
Auteur : Jean-Michel Delacomptée
Genre : Lettres
" Évidemment, il y a de quoi sourire. Il existe aujourd'hui des problèmes plus considérables. Le pays marche de travers, il a d'autres chats à fouetter que de s'étendre sur les douteux mérites de sa production romanesque. Excepté un quarteron de lecteurs en retraite, d'écrivains dépités de leur peu d'exemplaires vendus, de journalistes le nez au vent et de libraires guetteurs de messies, qui s'inquiète de ce qui nous captive, vous, moi, et encore quelques autres ? Précisément, c'est tout le problème. " J.-M. D.
Cette Lettre s'adresse à un ami écrivain désespéré de n'avoir obtenu aucune critique ni audience pour son dernier livre, pourtant magnifi que. Elle vise à comprendre et à faire comprendre pourquoi des oeuvres puissantes restent confi nées dans l'ombre, alors que des textes médiocres connaissent un grand succès.
