Read full description of the books Poisson Scorpion:



Ce pourrait être le récit d'un séjour exotique, c'est le voyage intérieur d'un homme arrivé à Ceylan après un long périple, pour achever le voyage intérieur au bout de lui-même. Le narrateur fait lentement naufrage, enlisé dans la solitude et la maladie, frôlé par la folie. Et là, sous l'oeil indifférent des insectes qui se livrent autour de lui à d'effroyagles carnages, et des habitants qui marinent dans leur chaleur comme un sombre bestiaire fainéant, l'auteur reconstruit, avec patience et ironie, un monde luxuriant et poétique. Au fil des chapitres, il observe et nous apprend à voir le spectacle mystérieux de ce monde des ombres d'où émergent d'étonnants portraits. Ainsi le lecteur participe à une sorte d'envoûtement dans ce récit bourré comme un pétard d'humour, de sagesse et d'espoir.

Read information about the author

Ebook Poisson Scorpion read Online! Nicolas Bouvier (1929-1998) was a Swiss writer and photographer.

His travels all over the world incited him to recount his experiences and adventures. His work is marked by a commitment to report what he sees and feels, shorn of any pretence of omniscience, leading often to an intimacy bordering on the mystical. His journey from Geneva to Japan was in many ways prescient of the great eastward wave of hippies that occurred in the sixties and seventies - slow, meandering progress in a small, iconic car, carefully guarded idiosyncrasy, a rite of passage. Yet, it differs in that the travelogues this journey inspired contain deep reflections on man's intimate nature, written in a style very much aware and appreciative of the traditions and possibilities of the language he uses. (He wrote mainly in French, though he does mention writing a series of travel articles in English for a local journal during his stay in Ceylon.)

His most famous books are The Way of the World, The Japanese Chronicles, and The Scorpion Fish.
