Les Derniers Jours de Pompéi

République des Lettres

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Edward Bulwer-Lytton. "Les Derniers Jours de Pompéi" restent, près de deux siècles après leur parution, un exemple littéraire unique. Roman d'amour et de passion à la fois historique -- voire archéologique -- sur l'Antiquité, et roman ancré dans la réalité littéraire de son temps -- le romantisme --, son succès ne s'est jamais démenti. Centré sur la destruction de Pompéi lors de l'éruption du Vésuve en 79 après J.-C., "Les Derniers Jours de Pompéi" sont un hymne à l'eau et au feu. Pompéi, la belle cité baignée par les eaux protectrices et dominée par le feu du Vésuve, devient le symbole de la destinée humaine qui roule sans cesse entre les eaux calmes et les feux ardents des passions.

About the author

Brillant orateur, Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873) est un homme politique londonien. Tout au long de sa vie, il se consacre en parallèle à la littérature, en explorant tous les domaines : poésie, romans sociaux, récits d'épouvante. Mais ce sont ses romans historiques, inspirés de Walter Scott, qui ont fait sa notoriété.
