Golding, William

Lord of the flies / William Golding ; whit notes prepared by the English Department of Loxford School of Science and Techology

Educational ed.

London : Faber and Faber, 2012

Résumé: Since it was first published in 1954, William Golding's classic debut novel has remained a stark allegory of civilization, survival, and human nature. As dystopian stories like Hunger Games and Battle Royale surge in popularity, this haunting tale of a group of young boys stranded on a desert island still captivates schoolchildren around the world, raising timeless and profound questions about how easily society can slip into chaos and savagery when rules and order have been abandoned. When a plane crashes on a remote island, a small group of schoolboys are the sole survivors. From the prophetic Simon and virtuous Ralph to the lovable Piggy and brutish Jack, each of the boys attempts to establish control as the reality- and brutal savagery-of their situation sets in. A teacher himself, Golding clearly understood how to interest children with a gripping story and strong, sympathetic characters. The novel serves as a catalyst for thought-provoking discussion and analysis of universal issues, not only concerning the capabilities of humans for good and evil and the fragility of moral inhibition, but beyond. The boys' struggle to find a way of existing in a community with no fixed boundaries invites readers to evaluate the concepts involved in social and political constructs and moral frameworks. Symbolism is strong throughout, revealing both the boys' capacity for empathy and hope, as well as illuminating the darkest corners of the human spirit. Ideas of community, leadership, and the rule of law are called into question as the reader has to consider who has a right to power, why, and what the consequences of the acquisition of power may be. Often compared to Catcher in the Rye, Lord of the Flies also represents a coming-of-age story of innocence lost.

Albert Camus [VIDEOREGISTRAZIONE] : le journalisme engagé / un film de Joël Calmettes

Chiloé Productions, 2012

Résumé: Prix Nobel de littérature, Albert Camus (1913-1960) ne s’est jamais dérobé aux responsabilités de son époque. Si son œuvre replace sans cesse l’homme au cœur de l’Histoire et de ses soubresauts, c’est dans la presse, comme journaliste, qu’il démontre que l’engagement ne s’opposait pas à la raison, la conviction à l’analyse, l’information à la rigueur. Avec pour guides la Justice et la Vérité, il dénonce sans relâche la misère des humbles, la responsabilité des hommes face aux idéologies qui déchirent le 20ème siècle ou l’immense espoir suscité par la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale. Il tentera d’infléchir le cours de l’Histoire en s’engageant dans l’Express en mai 1955 pour soutenir la politique de Mendès-France en Algérie. Basé sur de nombreuses archives (publiques et privées) qui balaient trente ans d’actualités, le film est construit autour des articles souvent visionnaires d’Albert Camus, de témoignages de ses proches et d’historiens. Il s’efforce de montrer comment, la parole d’Albert Camus donne, aujourd’hui encore, un sens aux mots « journalisme » et « engagement ».
