Albert Camus et Louis Guilloux font connaissance chez Gallimard durant l’été 1945, à l'instigation de leur ami commun Jean Grenier. Guilloux a déjà derrière lui deux décennies d'engagement et d'écriture et une œuvre publiée importante. Camus, dont L'Étranger et Le Mythe de Sisyphe ont paru en 1942, n'a que trente-deux ans ; son implication dans wrestle lui vaut une notoriété grandissante.
Les différences ne manquent pas entre le Breton et l'Algérien. Camus semble plus solaire, Guilloux plus behavioré par le noir ; le superior est rongé par le doute et le moment aspire à l. a. lumière. Mais l'amitié entre les deux hommes est immédiate et sturdy, et leurs affinités nombreuses : "Je l'aime tendrement et je l'admire, écrira Guilloux en 1952, non seulement pour son grand expertise, mais pour sa tenue dans los angeles vie." Ces fils du peuple, qui ont connu l. a. pauvreté et los angeles maladie, sont animés par l'esprit de justice et de fraternité, prenant le parti des malheureux et des opprimés sans jamais s'inféoder à une enterprise qui voudrait les représenter. Tous deux partagent une moral sense aiguë de l. a. douleur, où ils reconnaissent los angeles 'constante justification' de l'homme et dont ils tirent les éléments d'une conduite morale et politique.
Cette correspondance croisée ponctue quinze années d'une profonde et tendre affection, nourrie d'innombrables causeries, lectures, promenades et repas partagés. Comme toute amitié, elle eut ses temps forts, telle los angeles visite de Camus à Saint-Brieuc en 1947, durant laquelle le futur auteur du superior Homme va sur los angeles tombe de son père, enterré au carré des soldats de l. a. Grande Guerre ; ou encore le séjour de Guilloux en 1948 en Algérie, où il partage un repas avec Camus et sa mère.

Hugo Claus
De jonge jaren

Hugo Claus (1929-2008) was once een van de belangrijkste en zeker een van de meest iconische Vlaamse schrijvers van de afgelopen eeuw. Hij heeft ons een rijk geschakeerd en royaal bemeten oeuvre nagelaten. In deze uiterst grondig opgebouwde biografie worden de jeugdjaren van Hugo Claus tussen 1942 en 1949 beschreven. Het bestrijkt in grote trekken dezelfde jaren als de autobiografisch geïnspireerde roman Het verdriet van België. Wat beide, leven en werk, gemeen hebben, is de indrukwekkende ervaring die de Tweede Wereldoorlog voor de puber is geweest. Het verhaal dat Georges Wildemeersch met veel eruditie en oog voor element brengt, plaatst de kunst en de literatuur centraal, vanaf de vertaling van het Duitse gedicht 'Mutter des Bergmanns' tot de definitieve doorbraak van het modernisme na de dicht- bundel Registreren, met eigen lino op de omslag, en de debuutroman De eendenjacht (De Metsiers). 'The baby is Father of the Man', schreef William Wordsworth. Met deze meesterlijke en verrassende reconstructie van Claus' jonge jaren naderen we iets dichter waar het in zijn wereld echt over gaat.

(1947) was once tot 2013 gewoon hoogleraar Nederlandstalige letterkunde aan de Universiteit Antwerpen, waar hij in 1996 het Studie- en Documentatiecentrum Hugo
Claus oprichtte. In Hugo Claus. De jonge jaren biedt hij een staalkaart van zijn jarenlang vergaarde kennis.

Er ist der Schöpfer von ›Moby-Dick‹: Herman Melville zählt zu den herausragenden Schriftstellern Amerikas. Sein grandioser Roman vom mythischen Weißen Wal hat längst Kultstatus erlangt. Arno Heller legt mit dieser Biographie eine umfassende Neubewertung von Melvilles Persönlichkeit vor. Er verfolgt die Stationen seines Lebens von der glücklichen Kindheit in ny über die abenteuerliche Walfang-Reise im Südpazifik bis zu den tristen Jahren als Zollinspektor. Melville erweist sich als politisch weitsichtiger, zutiefst pessimistischer Kritiker einer von Kapitalismus und Rassismus geprägten Gesellschaft. Doch die literarische Anerkennung blieb aus. Familiäres Scheitern und finanzielle Misserfolge bestimmten den Alltag. Erst das 20. Jh. verstand Melvilles Modernität. Arno Heller erzählt auch die Geschichte einer sensationellen Wiederentdeckung.
