Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee Book Resume:

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.

Furious Hours

Reading Harper Lee Understanding To Kill A Mockingbird And Go Set A Watchman [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Furious Hours by Casey Cep Book Resume:

In Furious Hours, Casey Cep masterfully brings together the tales of a serial killer in 1970s Alabama and of Harper Lee, the beloved author of To Kill a Mockingbird, who tried to write his story. Reverend Willie Maxwell was a rural preacher accused of murdering five of his family members, but with the help of a savvy lawyer, he escaped justice for years until a relative assassinated him at the funeral of his last victim. Despite hundreds of witnesses, Maxwell’s murderer was acquitted—thanks to the same attorney who had previously defended the reverend himself. Sitting in the audience during the vigilante’s trial was Harper Lee, who spent a year in town reporting on the Maxwell case and many more trying to finish the book she called The Reverend. Cep brings this remarkable story to life, from the horrifying murders to the courtroom drama to the racial politics of the Deep South, while offering a deeply moving portrait of one of our most revered writers.

'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird' Meet Scout, the narrator of this book.

Ne tirez pas sur l'oiseau moqueur by Harper Lee,Isabelle Hausser Book Resume:

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.

Mockingbird Grows Up

Reading Harper Lee Understanding To Kill A Mockingbird And Go Set A Watchman [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Mockingbird Grows Up by Michele Reutter,Jonathan S. Cullick Book Resume:

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.

Atticus Finch

Reading Harper Lee Understanding To Kill A Mockingbird And Go Set A Watchman [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Atticus Finch by Joseph Crespino Book Resume:

Who was the real Atticus Finch? A prize-winning historian reveals the man behind the legend The publication of Go Set a Watchman in 2015 forever changed how we think about Atticus Finch. Once seen as a paragon of decency, he was reduced to a small-town racist. How are we to understand this transformation? In Atticus Finch, historian Joseph Crespino draws on exclusive sources to reveal how Harper Lee's father provided the central inspiration for each of her books. A lawyer and newspaperman, A. C. Lee was a principled opponent of mob rule, yet he was also a racial paternalist. Harper Lee created the Atticus of Watchman out of the ambivalence she felt toward white southerners like him. But when a militant segregationist movement arose that mocked his values, she revised the character in To Kill a Mockingbird to defend her father and to remind the South of its best traditions. A story of family and literature amid the upheavals of the twentieth century, Atticus Finch is essential to understanding Harper Lee, her novels, and her times.

Des nouvelles du monde by Paulette Jiles Book Resume:

Hiver 1870, le capitaine Jefferson Kyle Kidd parcourt le nord du Texas et lit à voix haute des articles de journaux devant un public avide des nouvelles du monde : les Irlandais migrent à New York ; une ligne de chemin de fer traverse désormais le Nebraska ; le Popocatepetl, près de Mexico, est entré en éruption. Un soir, après une de ses lectures à Wichita Falls, on propose au Capitaine de ramener dans sa famille, près de San Antonio, la jeune Johanna Leonberger. Quatre ans plus tôt, la fillette a assisté au massacre de ses parents et de sa sœur par les Kiowas qui l'ont épargnée, elle, et élevée comme une des leurs. Le vieil homme, veuf, qui vivait jadis de son métier d'imprimeur, profite de sa liberté pour sillonner les routes, mais l'argent se fait rare. Il accepte cette mission, en échange d'une pièce d'or, sachant qu'il devra se méfier des voleurs, des Comanches et des Kiowas autant que de l'armée fédérale. Sachant aussi qu'il devra apprivoiser cette enfant devenue sauvage qui guette la première occasion de s'échapper. Pourtant, au fil des kilomètres, ces deux survivants solitaires tisseront un lien qui fera leur force. Dans ce splendide roman aux allures de western, Paulette Jiles aborde avec pudeur des sujets aussi universels que les origines, le devoir, l'honneur et la confiance.

A la grâce des hommes

A la grâce des hommes by Hannah KENT Book Resume:

" Voici une nouvelle voix originale, qui tient son histoire avec une remarquable maîtrise de la langue. Le premier roman d'Hannah Kent, A la grâce des hommes, est un pur bijou, sa prose aussi froide et étincelante que le paysage nordique qu'elle dépeint. " Geraldine Brooks, auteur de L'Autre Rive du monde, Le Livre d'Hanna et La Solitude du docteur March Dans le nord de l'Islande, en 1829, Agnes Magnúsdóttir est condamnée à mort pour l'assassinat de son amant, Natan Ketilsson. En attendant que la sentence soit exécutée, Agnes Magnúsdóttir est placée en résidence surveillée à Kornsá, dans la ferme de l'agent de sécurité du canton, Jon Jonsson, avec sa femme et leurs deux filles. Horrifiées à l'idée d'héberger une criminelle, les membres de la famille évitent tout contact avec Agnes, qui leur inspire autant de peur que de dégoût. Seul Totti, le jeune révérend que la meurtrière a choisi comme guide spirituel pour la préparer à sa fin prochaine, tente de la comprendre. Alors que les mois passent, contraints de partager le quotidien, de travailler côte à côte cette terre gelée et hostile, le fermier et les siens se laissent peu à peu apprivoiser par la condamnée. Encouragée par le pasteur, Agnes livre le récit de sa vie, de son amour pour Natan, et des semaines qui ont conduit au drame, laissant entrevoir une vérité qui n'est pas forcément celle que tous pensaient connaître. Inspiré de la véritable histoire d'Agnes Magnúsdóttir, la dernière femme condamnée à mort en Islande, A la grâce des hommes est un roman sur la vérité, celle que nous croyons savoir et celle à laquelle nous voulons croire.

Reading Harper Lee Understanding To Kill A Mockingbird And Go Set A Watchman [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Nous sommes l'eau by Wally LAMB Book Resume:

Après Le Chagrin et la Grâce, celui que la presse surnomme le " Dostoïevski des temps modernes " livre un nouveau chef-d'œuvre. Des fifties aux années Obama, une fresque polyphonique poignante, âpre et vertigineuse qui, au travers du destin d'une famille, retrace un pan de l'histoire des États-Unis. Toute sa vie, Annie Oh a été terrifiée. Terrifiée à l'idée de tomber amoureuse ; de se dévoiler à Orion, son ex-mari psychologue si désespérément prêt à l'épauler ; de ne pas être une bonne mère pour ses trois enfants ; de ne pas savoir soulager les colères de son fils, les angoisses de ses filles ; d'affronter le souvenir des drames qui ont dévasté son enfance. Cette terreur, Annie a tenté de l'évacuer dans ses sculptures, ses tableaux chargés de rage. Alors qu'elle s'apprête à se remarier avec Viveca, charismatique galeriste new-yorkaise qui l'a rendue célèbre, la peur la saisit de nouveau. Comment avouer à la femme qu'elle aime les raisons qui l'empêchent de célébrer leurs noces à Three Rivers, Connecticut ? Comment lui révéler ce qui s'est réellement passé dans cette ville, un soir de 1963 ? Chaque jour qui sépare Annie et les siens du mariage les rapproche de vérités terribles, indicibles, qu'ils devront faire éclater pour tenter de renaître, enfin.
