5.0 étoiles sur 5 "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
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A delightful read 19 décembre 2008
Par Jasmine Guha - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ...and I lost her forever 29 décembre 2008
Par Not Miss Havisham - Publié sur Amazon.com
In this classic text, Lee reminisces and recounts his childhood in a Cotsworld village, including the of course famous and titled experience of drinking cider with Rosie.
Lee's rich imagery and nostalgic descriptions transport the reader to the setting of his youth. Being quite reflective myself, I enjoyed his stories, his humour and his matter-of-factness about life and simply being, simply growing up and being an organic part of the world around. His ideas and experiences, woven throughout the story, of female warmth, gender expectations, relationships and family had a near adoring quality to them, a loyalty and love which now often (indeed) seems to belong to the long-gone era that Lee recalls.
The losing of Rosie appears to be the culmination of the loss of that era, the loss of that which one holds dear but may never be recovered, only remembered. In this, likely, lies the secret of the success of the book.
4 stars as it is a bit blokey for me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Incredibly candid, lyrical, emphathetic memoir of his childhood and a way of life 24 avril 2013

that ended when his childhood ended. Truly beautiful writing that was moving without any sentimentality, at times it moved me to tears. The earliest memory of his loving sisters faces surrounding him and the chapter on his mother are memorable, insightful, and heart-wrenching. The grannies in the wainscotting, the school years, and life in the village before the automobile destroyed the secluded community and its self-sustaining social supports provide a glimpse of how much life has changed in a relatively short time in rural England. This is without question one of the memoirs I will keep alongside Gerald Durrell's My Family and Other Animals. Lee's writing has a wonderful, easy cadence and a gentle elegance that leads you so lightly that you don't realize you are completely immersed in his world. A memorable and touching memoir of a time and place that cannot be re-created now except in our imaginations.
