Attention ce livre a strictement la même couverture que la traduction de Robin Hard dans l'édition Oxford World's Classics mais n'a rien à voir avec cette édition ! La traduction Robin Hard est ici :

Marc Aurèle, un auteur dont je connaissais l'existence, et que je souhaitais lire.
j'aime la version Kindle que je peux feuilleter partout et quel que soit l'environnement.

Je n'ai pas tout lu, mais j'avance, petit à petit.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's worth trying different translations 26 septembre 2013
Par davidhmorgan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I don't know who did the translation for this one but I found it very difficult to follow. This prompted me to look around and I found another translation by George Long (Thoughts of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus 1862). Even though it's not a recent translation, Long's version is often easier to understand. Compare the translations of the first paragraph for example:

This version:

Of my grandfather Verus I have learned to be gentle and meek, and to refrain from all anger and passion. From the fame and memory of him that begot me I have learned both shamefastness and manlike behaviour. Of my mother I have learned to be religious, and bountiful; and to forbear, not only to do, but to intend any evil; to content myself with a spare diet, and to fly all such excess as is incidental to great wealth. Of my great-grandfather, both to frequent public schools and auditories, and to get me good and able teachers at home; and that I ought not to think much, if upon such occasions, I were at excessive charges.

George Long's version:

From my grandfather Verus I learned good morals and the government of my temper. From the reputation and remembrance of my father, modesty and a manly character. From my mother, piety and beneficence, and abstinence, not only from evil deeds, but even from evil thoughts; and further, simplicity in my way of living, far removed from the habits of the rich. From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a man should spend liberally.

Having said this however, it's still worth comparing both translations which are free on the Kindle.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another translation 4 janvier 2013
Par Thomas W. Blakey - Publié sur Amazon.com

Of the various translations of the Meditations, I think this is the best. The Loeb translation, while excellent, uses archaic English - lots of "thee" and "thou" and, for me this distracts. This translation combines the excellence of the content with ease of reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Incredible insights to living a happy life 9 décembre 2012
Par Dan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've only recently been introduced to Stoicism, but I've found Meditations to contain incredible insights into the nature of the universe. Conveying several concepts that are similar to Buddhist ideas, Aurelius stresses the importance of understanding that everything changes, that our negative experiences are a result of the interpretations of events rather than the events themselves, and that we are all a part of a whole system and our failure to realize this causes unnecessary suffering. He encourages humility and living according to the laws of the universe. This will definitely be a book that I will read regularly in the future.

As far as the translation is concerned, it is clear and seems to accurately reflect the original message (though I've only briefly compared different translations).

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard, accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.”

Before I get into details, I must say that reading Meditations was one of the hardest, but most rewarding experiences in my own personal growth. The book has done so much to ferment my prior beliefs and has helped a lot to broaden my mind and encourage me to be all that I can be.

It is very difficult in today’s world to believe in anything, whether it be divine beings, other people, or even ourselves. It is an epidemic that buries potential and love deep down and leaves anger and frustration to dictate life.

There is no reason to feel unhappy, unfulfilled, or unappreciated , and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius offers advice to anyone who is looking for self help, self love, and a rational way of directing life.

Before reading this book it is interesting to know the man that wrote it. Marcus Aurelius was the last of The Five Good Emperors of Ancient Rome. He took the title of Augustus after the death of his adopted father, Antoninus Pius, the adopted son of the late Emperor Hadrian.

However Marcus Aurelius had tried to pass on the emperorship, for he prefered a much more simple philosophic lifestyle. He accepted the honor with the sole demand that Lucius Verus, his adopted brother, would share the seat with him.

Sharing his seat of power is the one move that summarizes Marcus Aurelius’s entire life; the fear of power and the duty embedded in him through his interest in Stoicism, a philosophy that grounds itself on self-restraint, reason, and fate.

His work is a reflection of his life, and the words inscribed in Meditations are the product of his own thoughts and his own experiences. While reading this book good feelings will begin to surface through introspection, and in turn bad feelings will be expelled.

In my everyday life quotes from his book swim in my mind when I am met with difficult situations, and they enable me to make smarter more thought out and rational decisions. It is fascinating and rewarding each time I don’t simply act on impulse.

This book is not for entertainment, not for adventure, and it is definitely not a “light read.” It is a book that will help those who seek help, irritate those who don’t, and fascinate those who wish to learn and grow.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not much to it 11 septembre 2012

A very simple how-to, not a lot of detail, just the minimal basics of meditation. A bit religious for my tastes.
