New PDF release: De la France

By Emil Cioran

De l. a. France fut écrit en roumain en France, en 1941. Cioran trentenaire, auteur de cinq livres, aime avec scepticisme, déteste avec amour et joue de los angeles plume avec maestria.

Le portrait qu’il fait de los angeles décadence de los angeles France est d’autant plus cinglant, qu’il est dramatiquement actuel.

Ce texte émaillé de mots en français, laisse percevoir le tournant dans l’écriture de Cioran, qui décide quelques années plus tard d’abandonner l. a. langue roumaine.
