Jean Giono

The warmth of the earth stole up into your loins; the grass was all round like a warm, sheltering sheepskin. I’ve read 3 of his books now, and only liked 1, but I know I will be reading more. Often beautiful, but after putting it aside for a while, I found it too dull to proceed to ggiono second of two parts. Nov 20, Lara Sappa rated it it was amazing.

Giono is the French equivalent of our Steinbeck, which makes this book good summer reading for those who want romantic rural settings and hearty characters. He also adopted the Stendhalian narrative technique of letting the reader into the experience of the protagonist by means of the interior monologuewhereas the dominant technique of his earlier novels had been that of the retain narrator.

regaij Time to read this one, I think. The subsequent period of renewal saw the self-educated Giono now turn to Stendhal as a literary model in the same way as previously he had been influenced by the Classics. A wonderful story about sacrifice and change and healing. But when sitting you were comfortable. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It’s a deeply personal story that says just about everything that’s worth saying about being human.

Jun 30, Sylvester rated it liked it Shelves: I love Jean Giono in general but I particularly like this one. His most famous novel is “Horseman on the Roof”, which was made into a movie starring Juliette Binoche. In fact, all the scenes of their initial meeting are bizarre, as if Giono was describing animals in heat – unthinking and entirely instinctual.

The Collapse of France. The novel is beautifully translated from French, bringing out intelligent, poignant prose of a man tied to the land,adamantly staying put just when everyone desserts the village. It was almost like an Adam and Eve story, except backwards – the couple go from savagery and desolation into peace and rrgain.

Lists with This Book. Sometimes the gegain captures his beautiful raw language. However, it’s written in Giono’s deliriously lyrical early style, which often reads more like poetry than prose. It didn’t work for me. I get hungry when his people eat.

Also worthy of mention is his Voyage en Italie Jun 05, Kalyrohey rated it liked it Shelves: Giono was a pacifist, and was twice imprisoned in France at the outset and conclusion of World War II. Together they replenish t Earth, peasants, melancholy and loneliness but joy and getting back to the land.

Like all of Giono’s early works, it’s a parable set outside of historical time, evoking the deepest mysteries of human nature and ecology, showing how people work together with each other and their natural communities to renew life on earth.
