By Charles Dantzig
« Chef-d'œuvre. » Quand ce très vieux mot du Moyen Âge utilisé pour l'artisanat a-t-il commencé à être appliqué à l. a. littérature ? Y a-t-il un critère du chef-d'œuvre littéraire ? Mieux, une recette ? remark être sûr qu'un livre est un chef-d'œuvre ? Un chef-d'œuvre est-il éternel ? l. a. postérité est-elle le bon juge ? Crée-t-on encore des chefs-d'œuvre aujourd'hui ? remark définir le chef-d'œuvre ?
C'est à toutes ces questions que tente de répondre ce livre. Parcourant les grands livres, de Homère à Heine et de Boccace à Beckett, il suggest une examine inattendue de l'œuvre de James Joyce aussi bien que des considérations sur ce que l'on peut penser des Aristochats de Walt Disney. Charles Dantzig montre encore une fois que l'on peut associer le brillant et los angeles réflexion, los angeles virtuosité et los angeles profondeur, l'érudition et l'esprit.

S. ” Not all of the things that happen are to our liking, of course, and the “readability factor” for the new middle-class “knowledge workers” who (probably) constitute the market for crime fiction is increased by its subtext of social criticism. There is, for example, a recurring commentary on the transformation of Canada’s cities by development and gentrification—the latter somewhat ironic given the habit of renovation among the putative readership. Alison Gordon’s Kate Henry, for example, laments the transformation of her neighbourhood: I liked it the way it was, a nice mix of working-class WASPS who had lived in their houses for generations and immigrants, mainly Greek, who add some colour.
