Voyage avec un âne dans les Cévennes

République des Lettres
1

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Robert Louis Stevenson et d'une carte du chemin Stevenson. Après une randonnée en canoë d'Anvers jusqu'à Pontoise -- racontée dans "Un voyage sur le continent" -- Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) traverse à pied les Cévennes et relate son périple dans "Voyage avec un âne dans les Cévennes", publié à Londres en juin 1879. Parti le 22 septembre 1878 du Monastier, près du Puy-en-Velay (Haute-Loire), le futur auteur de "L'Île au Trésor" conte son cheminement en compagnie de l'ânesse Modestine jusqu'à Saint-Jean-du-Gard, près d'Alès (Gard), où il arrive 12 jours plus tard, le 03 octobre. Outre les descriptions poétiques des paysages et les réflexions que lui inspire la nature, ces quelque 195 km à pied à travers les Cévennes sont aussi l'occasion, pour l'écrivain écossais, d'évoquer l'histoire de la révolte des Camisards. L'itinéraire suivi par Stevenson est aujourd'hui devenu un chemin de Grande Randonnée, le GR 70.

This carefully crafted ebook: “Arabian Nights or One Thousand and One Nights (Andrew Lang) + New Arabian Nights (Robert Louis Stevenson)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. A medieval Middle-Eastern literary epic which tells the story of Scheherazade, a Sassanid Queen, who must relate a series of stories to her malevolent husband, the King, to delay her execution. The stories are told over a period of one thousand and one nights, and every night she ends the story with a suspenseful situation, forcing the King to keep her alive for another day. The individual stories were created over many centuries, by many people and in many styles, and they have become famous in their own right. The Arabian Nights include fairy tales, fables, romances, farces, legends, and parables. They have existed for thousands of years, consisting of tales told in Persia, Arabia, India and Asia. The Arabian Nights (also known as The 1001 Arabian Nights) have inspired writers the world over. There are versions of these stories in many languages and they all convey the great sense of adventure, truth, fantastic imagination, justice, and faith embodied by the great civilizations that contributed stories and ideas to the collection. These are versions translated by Andrew Lang in 1897. The Andrew Lang Version (published in 1897): INTRODUCTION BY ANDREW LANG THE ARABIAN NIGHTS PROLOGUE THE STORY OF THE MERCHANT AND THE GENIE THE STORY OF THE FIRST OLD MAN AND OF THE HIND THE STORY OF THE SECOND OLD MAN, AND OF THE TWO BLACK DOGS THE STORY OF THE FISHERMAN THE STORY OF THE GREEK KING AND THE PHYSICIAN DOUBAN THE STORY OF THE HUSBAND AND THE PARROT THE STORY OF THE VIZIR WHO WAS PUNISHED THE STORY OF THE YOUNG KING OF THE BLACK ISLES STORY OF THE THREE KALENDARS, SONS OF KINGS, AND OF FIVE LADIES OF BAGHDAD THE STORY OF THE FIRST KALENDAR, SON OF A KING THE STORY OF THE SECOND KALENDAR, SON OF A KING THE STORY OF THE ENVIOUS MAN AND OF HIM WHO WAS ENVIED STORY OF THE THIRD KALENDAR, SON OF A KING THE SEVEN VOYAGES OF SINDBAD THE SAILOR THE FIRST VOYAGE OF SINBAD THE SAILOR THE SECOND VOYAGE OF SINBAD THE SAILOR THE THIRD VOYAGE OF SINBAD THE SAILOR THE FOURTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD THE SAILOR THE FIFTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD THE SAILOR THE SIXTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD THE SAILOR THE SEVENTH AND LAST VOYAGE OF SINBAD THE SAILOR THE LITTLE HUNCHBACK STORY OF THE BARBER’S FIFTH BROTHER THE STORY OF THE BARBER’S SIXTH BROTHER THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE CAMARALZAMAN AND THE PRINCESS BADOURA NOUREDDIN AND THE FAIR PERSIAN ALADDIN AND THE WONDERFUL LAMP THE ADVENTURES OF HAROUN-AL-RASCHID, CALIPH OF BAGHDAD THE STORY OF THE BLIND BABA-ABDALLA THE STORY OF SIDI-NOUMAN STORY OF ALI COLIA, MERCHANT OF BAGHDAD THE ENCHANTED HORSE THE STORY OF TWO SISTERS WHO WERE JEALOUS OF THEIR YOUNGER SISTER New Arabian Nights by Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1882, is a collection of short stories previously published in magazines between 1877 and 1880. The collection contains Stevenson's first published fiction, and a few of the stories are considered by some critics to be his best work, as well as pioneering works in the English short story tradition. The first volume contains seven stories originally called Later-day Arabian Nights and published by London Magazine in serial format from June to October 1878. It is composed of two story groups, or cycles: "The Suicide Club" "The Rajah's Diamond" The second volume is a collection of four unconnected (standalone) stories that were previously published in magazines: "The Pavilion on the Links" (1880), told in 9 mini-chapters "A Lodging for the Night" (1877) "The Sire De Malétroits Door" (1877) "Providence and the Guitar" (1878)
