À vau-l'eau La Retraite de monsieur Bougran free read à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Through its brilliant unrelenting detail Huysmans’ early masterpiece captures the minutiae of misery and boredom in a day in the life of a man who—for the moment—refuses to go with the flow It is published heRostitute but ultimately finds that nothing can relieve him of his disgust and boredom with the business of living Joris–Karl Huysmans art critic and author of Against Nature is a leading figure in France’s Decadent Moveme. This edition contains the novella With the Flow coupled with the short story 'M Bougran's Retirement'; it was a good editorial decision In my experience people enjoy misery than one would expect so long as the misery is not their own Why one has to wonder why a show like Steptoe and Son was so popular when its primary focus is how badly life with some small assistance from his father treats Harold Steptoe I've seen the American version and it's nowhere near as bleak Maybe it's a British thing We'll root for the underdog in a tennis match but still relate to them when they loseFrom what I've read the French also seem to have a soft spot for underdogs those Dickensian and Kafkaesue clerks who waste their lives away in service to some large corporation or government department Joris Karl Huysmans presents us with two fine examples in this slim volume Monsieurs Folantin and Bougran The former is a copy clerk who has been passed over for promotion a number of times and is resigned to the fact that a copy clerk is all he's going to be until he dies; the latter is a fifty year old who on a technicality and probably to make room for someone who is owed a favour is forced into early retirement Neither has found the time to get married; their lives revolve around work Folantin's main preoccupation other that that is with food He can't find a decent book to read can't find a decent play or opera to watch or even a decent other to befriend But worst of all he can find an establishment that cook up a decent meal to suit his pocket This is what drives the novella and Huysmans delights in vivid descriptions of some awful meals Bougran is for me the sadder of the two because he's completely lost without work so much in fact that he recreates his office within his home and starts living in a fantasy world He writes letters to himself and then answers them It's really rather pathetic actually and although it has its funny moments there will be many retired people who will relate to his plight and won't find it funny at allI've read that neither of these are among Huysmans’ best works If that's true I must find of which of his books evidence his best writing and read them because I thoroughly enjoyed these two tales
