By Albert Camus

Chaque matin quand je sors sur cette terrasse, encore un peu ivre de sommeil, le chant des oiseaux me surprend, vient me chercher au fond du sommeil, et vient toucher une position précise pour y libérer d’un coup une sorte de joie mystérieuse. Depuis deux jours il fait beau et los angeles belle lumière de décembre dessine devant moi les cyprès et les pins retroussés.

Entre 1951 et 1959, Albert Camus écrit L’Été, los angeles Chute, L’Exil et le royaume. Il réagit aux polémiques déclenchées par L’Homme révolté, à l. a. tragédie de los angeles guerre d’Algérie, voyage en Italie et en Grèce, reçoit le prix Nobel… Ses Carnets témoignent de son désir d’harmonie, auquel il have a tendency 'à travers les chemins les plus raides, les désordres, les luttes'.

On trouvera à los angeles fin de ce quantity un index général des trois tomes.

Example text

But it would scarcely do to explain that essential, and most typical, feature of Homeric religion, the suppression of all chthonian elements including the worship of Mother Earth, of Ge and Demeter, by contending that the great barons of Thessaly deliberately distinguished their religion from the crude superstitions of the peasants. No, this differentiation had to wait until the colonists in Asia Minor severed their ties with their home soil and its hallowed cult centres. The transparent clarity of the Homeric creed is a fruit of the detached sophistication of the aristocrats in the cities of Asia Minor; in departing from Greece they had left the dark powers of the earth behind them, and were able to raise their sky-god Zeus to his domination over gods and men.

The grace of God manifests itself in His willingness to cancel the natural order of things; before God nothing is impossible. In the Greek tales, likewise, the hero will at times ask for a visible token of divine assistance; he will pray for a stroke of lightning, a bird flying by, a fit of sneezing--signs which -28under ordinary circumstances could not be expected to come about just at the desired moment, but which are not impossible, and might indeed occur agathei tychei, by a happy coincidence.

As Archilochus removes the mask from the face of the mannered general, -49Anacreon unveils the true aspect of the parvenu Artemon who travels in state (54): Once he walked on foot, a Cimmerian tarboush on his head, with dice of wood in his ears, and about his ribs a hairy oxhide which had not been washed since it served as the cover of a wretched shield. He used to go about with bread-women and whores, making his living by fraud. Often he had his neck in the stocks, or bound to the wheel; often his back was scourged with the raw-hide whip, and his hair and his beard were plucked.
