Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Proulx's understanding is at its most remarkable in the astonishing 'Brokeback Mountain.' [She] knows what she could only know...by the infrared that allows a very few writers clear sight in the dark of the imagination."
-- Richard Eder, The New York Times Book Review

"'Brokeback Mountain' does some of the best things a story can do. It abolishes the old West clichés, excavates and honors a certain kind of elusive life, then nearly levels you with the emotional weight at its center."
-- Gail Caldwell, The Boston Sunday Globe

"A stand-out story...'Brokeback Mountain' is the sad chronology of a love affair between two men who can't afford to call it that. They know what they're not -- not queer, not gay -- but have no idea what they are."
-- Walter Kirn, New York

Présentation de l'éditeur

Annie Proulx has written some of the most original and brilliant short stories in contemporary literature, and for many readers and reviewers, "Brokeback Mountain" is her masterpiece.
Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they're working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer.
Both men work hard, marry, and have kids because that's what cowboys do. But over the course of many years and frequent separations this relationship becomes the most important thing in their lives, and they do anything they can to preserve it.
The New Yorker won the National Magazine Award for Fiction for its publication of "Brokeback Mountain," and the story was included in Prize Stories 1998: The O. Henry Awards. In gorgeous and haunting prose, Proulx limns the difficult, dangerous affair between two cowboys that survives everything but the world's violent intolerance.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Powerful story! 19 janvier 2006
Format:Broché
I highly recommend any of Annie Proulx's work. "Brokeback" is a short story not a novel, that has been expanded into a a full length feature film. The original Story appeared in the New Yorker in the Late 1990's and I remember being very touched by it back then. It was also interesting to read the McMurtry/Ossana screen play in which the roles of the women were enlarged--even created from scratch. There is a darkness to this story that troubled me, the underlying violent tensions. This is a raw story of true emotions. The actual movie bothered me because of the good looking actors portraying the main characters is not true to the story. I also do not care for all the "straight" hype concerning this flick. It has become a badge of honor for straight men to go see this movie and prove how enlightened they are, while other men immediately demean it because of the subject matter. I don't think most straight men are ever going to be comfortable watching a gay cowboy movie with explicit sex, its just not in their DNA. It doesn’t make them bad its just the way they are (just like the characters Jack Twist and Ennis Del Mar can't help the way they are).
I also enjoyed the writers essays on bringing this story to the big screen. The book also includes Black and white photos from the movie--which again take away from the story for me as the actors do not look like the characters described in the book. The book concludes with the movies credits which is probably of interest to movie buffs, but meant nothing to me.
In conclusion if you’re a big fan of the movie youll probably love this book. If you want the real deal I recommend Proulx's, "Close Range : Wyoming Stories" the compilation of short stories that includes "BrokeBack".

I recall a short story version of Brokeback Mountain many years ago in a major periodical (alas, I can't recall the periodical). I had an idea that it would, in the fullness of time, become a major motion picture, and that it has. It is an award-winning film already, and looks set for some sort of Oscar recognition.
However, in the hype surrounding the film, those interested would be wise to look at the book. There is much more depth here than in the film, much more about the interior workings of the main characters and what they must endure. This is ultimately not a love story, as the marketing has been spinning the film, but rather an expose on the dangers and drawbacks of living in the closet. For the purposes of this story, Annie Proulx has juxtaposed two diametrically opposite cultures in the American psyche - the gay culture and the cowboy culture (although history is, as it often is, in fact rather different from what the Hollywood-created current remembrance of it is). One comes to wonder at the resistance that all characters seem to have for breaking free of their bonds; ultimately, none of the relationships are satisfying, and there is an emotional desolation as wide and spare as brush land and prairies of the American West.
The lead characters meet while working for the summer as wranglers and watchers over herds. They form a bond that renews at regular intervals during their lives, lives that go on to other, more traditional and socially acceptable settings. Each gets married, each has children, each embarks (in one way or another) in a working life that would seem to preclude the other, but yet the tie that binds them draws them together again on a regular basis.

Format:Broché
Superbe nouvelle directe,sobre et poétique entre deux cow-boys amoureux des montagnes et de la nature sauvage américaine...Ce récit d'un amour impossible et pourtant vrai touche le lecteur en plein coeur. Ici, pas de chichis; juste deux êtres qui se cherchent et font avec la vie. Un petit chef-d'oeuvre illuminé par une écriture concise et de belles évocations de paysages!
