Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

First published in 1844, The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Esq. by Thackeray is a picaresque novel also known as The Luck of Barry Lyndon. It chronicles the life of impoverished Redmond Barry, an Irishman who wants to be an English aristocrat. An opportunist, rake, and gambler, he serves in the Seven Years War, first under the English flag and then, for money, in the Prussian Army. Continuing to play with his luck, he gains wealth in the beginning but eventually is punished for his many lovable imperfections. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Biographie de l'auteur

Thackeray, an only child, was born in Calcutta. He studied at Cambridge, but, never a keen student, he left the University in 1830 to travel the continent. He began to study law but gave it up and squandered much of his inheritance on gambling and poor investments. He studied art in Paris, but he did not pursue that professionally either, except to illustrate his own novels.He was a successful novelist, earning the adulation of the very people he satirized. His death at 53 was unexpected. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A worthy audiobook version of a tragic story. 1 septembre 2015
Par jblyn - Publié sur

Even in the days of its original publication, BARRY LYNDON was not one of William Makepeace Thackeray's most popular novels, and it perhaps would have remained obscure had not the late film director Stanley Kubrick read it, loved it and decided to make a movie based around it during the 1970s. Anyone coming to the novel by way of the movie will find that "based around" is an accurate description. It isn't only because whole sections of the novel are either truncated, altered or done away with entirely in the movie; it's that the entire tone of Redman Barry/Barry Lyndon's unfortunate history is completely different, with the only shared component being that the protagonist ends his days a penniless victim of his own hubris and folly.

The chief difference between novel and movie is the boisterous telling of the tale by Barry himself in the former, as opposed to the frequent dry observations of an omniscient third-person narrator in the latter. Throughout the book, Redman Barry portrays himself in glowing terms at every interval, boasting of his physical attributes, his skill, his daring and his bravery as he strives to become a true "gentleman" at any price. With every utterance, he shows the reader how complete a liar and fraud he really is, self-centered and self-pitying to the end even when owning up once in awhile to his faults. It takes a good narrator to keep the listener eager to hear this pathetic man's narrative to the end, and Jonathan Keeble is uniformly excellent in giving voice to Barry as he tells his tale. Not only does he convey the title character's delusions of grandeur and blindness to his failings with complete convincing skill, he gives the little nuances that show the listener that Barry is very much a human being and not just a caricature of one. In the few moments of tenderness that Barry exhibits, particularly in regard to his young son Brian, Keeble makes it possible for us to see that this is a man with a heart, however little of it he shows throughout most of the novel. Keeble is equally adept at giving voice to the other characters in Barry's story----his mother, his wife, his nemesis Lord Bullingdon and the rest-----and as complex as the novel's story is you're swept along, wondering what will happen next.

At 15+ hours, this is a lot of book to go through...but it's so wonderfully performed that you're sorry when it's over. Recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Swashbuckling egomania. Great stuff. 2 septembre 2016

Excellent story and very oriented toward the 17th-18th centuries as far as customs, habits, etc go; gives you an excellent feeling for the times, often unbelievable, but true if you're familiar with actual histories (as this is) of the times, but without the polish and cleansing of academic style historical writing. Highly recommended.

If you're looking for a book like the movie, this isn't it. Stanley Kubrick took quite a bit of the book, but not as much as he should have. I loved reading in the older English or Irish text. Great story of families and the dysfunction we all have. I highly recommend this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding Movie, enjoyable book 4 décembre 2015

Hated it first time I saw it when it first came out. Second time a few years later and thought "interesting, but not what I expected from Kubrick." Third time I reveled in it. I've seen it many times since and will certainly watch it many more. A masterpiece. Now finally read the book with a new appreciation for Thackery. Much of the best lines in the movie are lifted directly from the book. The big surprise though is the narrator. But I won't spoil it for you. Watch and read or read and watch, but do both! You won't be disappointed.

Couldn't get into this novel, which was disappointing because Vanity Fair (also by Thackery) is a really wonderful and still very modern book, that not only entertained me, made me think--still makes me thing--but taught me something about writing, too.
