On my Top Ten List. 9 août 1999
Par Ian J. Wilson MD - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book was required reading during my childhood and, of course, I couldn't have dragged myself more slowly through it. How wise we become with age. This is an astonishing book. Lee is such a master of description that, after only a few pages, you slowly start to smell the fresh country air and hear the languid sounds of summer as you are inescabably drawn into the world of his childhood - a world that you realize has already faded into the mists of history. But this special time has not been lost - it has been captured forever in this irreplacable series of pictures. The people in these stories become more real than seems possible with only pen and ink: his characterizations are as clever as anything by Dickens or Dostoevski, and he catches the very essence of the sights, sounds and people around him with a charm unmatched by any other English writer. But this is not a story-book universe: the people in his young life have all the frailty, vanity, delight and tragedy that you would expect in any small community - but what other has been crystallized with such talent and wisdom. A wonderful work of art.

"I belonged to that generation which saw, by chance, the end of a thousand years' life." 16 novembre 2008
Par C. Ebeling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
CIDER WITH ROSIE has two things going for it, what it tells and how it tells it. Author Laurie Lee (1914 - 1997) wrote this memoir of his childhood in a rural English village in 1959, restoring to memory something ancient that had been lost, how villages used to get on before progress intervened. His family moved to tiny Slad, in Gloucestershire, in the Cotswolds region, when he was three. It was a large family--four older half-siblings, plus Lee and his three siblings--and their mother. Their father essentially abandoned the family there in a crumbling old house that flooded with every rain, though he occasionally sent support. Like all the villagers, the Lee clan lived without plumbing or electricity or motor vehicles, in a social structure that reached back, he says at one point, to the Stone Age. The family was poor, but it survived rather happily, and Lee enjoyed a full range of delights, from boyhood roughhousing to church outings, all at the eight miles per hour pace of a horse drawn vehicle. The village unit was a balanced one, one that absorbed eccentricities and the occasional crime, with a way of life made purposeful under the watchful eye of the church and the local Squire. Just as Lee comes of age, it changes dramatically, with the arrival of cars, the death of the Squire, the slipping grip of the church on its parishioners, and, in the family, the loss of the older sisters to marriage.

Lee documents all of this in language that captures the child's worldview and wonder. The first chapter is a three-year-old's kaleidoscopic impressions of his environment, which grow more sharply into focus as Lee ages. It is very immediate, and it is as if the village as it was had never entered the twentieth century. Lee writes lyrically, but also honestly. His prose is warm, witty and full of love, without sacrificing reality or slipping into the phoniness of nostalgia or sentimentality. At the center of the book is the complete portrait of his mother, whose ditziness and undying hope that her husband would return to her someday probably kept her sane as she kept the family together.

This is part one of what became a trilogy. Lee's account of leaving the village and experiencing first London, then Spain as Civil War breaks out there, AS I WALKED OUT ONE MIDSUMMER MORNING, is also terrific.

Exquisite language captures a rich world's slipping away 28 décembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was introduced to this book in a recent class taught by literati Doug Marx in Portland, Oregon. The book was the summit of 10 weeks' studying how to read good works to learn to write masterfully. Cider with Rosie was introduced as the penultimate example of the fusing of poetry, prose, nonfiction, and personal essay. Laurie Lee tells the tale of growing up in the last of the feudal villages in the post WWI Cotswolds. He paints with luxuriant language his single mother of seven, scatterbrained and cloudminded, his older doting sisters, a dottering squire, feuding spinster neighbors, seasons of pure hot and pure cold, whole village excursions by omnibus...all simple and quaint, but heartbreaking in their recent passing into history. Sensuous, breathtaking, heartstopping in its ability to pluck that which is familiar and delicious in the human experience. The poetry is Dylan Thomas made understandable. Recommend this book above almost any other.

Rooted in the fertile English Cotswolds of the 1920's 3 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Rooted in the earth and shining with long gone summers and freezing winters this is a beautiful and poignant flower of a book. Written in a sensuous and lyrical poetic prose it tells the story of the authors's boyhood in the Cotswolds of the West of England. Spinning round the great orb of his clutter-minded and loving mother are his sisters and wider village life. There is Illness, murder, private sorrow, boiling summer and frozen winter and finally the running down of the feudal clock as long awaited change comes to the valley. A book, more even - a place to be visited again and again...

A delightful read 19 décembre 2008
Par Coolox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is pure poetry. It's an account of a childhood spent in Gloucestershire, England during and after world war one. The author describes his family, village life, his time at the village school, holiday celebrations and so forth. It is a delightful insight into rural life at the beginning of the 20th century. The reader is introduced to the simple and delightful pleasures of those times, and at the same time, the true hardships, such as the chapter in which he describes his childhood illnesses. I would highly recommend this book to those who are interested in British social history.
