My Father's Glory & My Mother's Castle: Marcel Pagnol's Memories of Childhood

My Father's Glory & My Mother's Castle: Marcel Pagnol's Memories of Childhood

Bathed in the warm clarity of the summer sun in Provence, Marcel Pagnol's childhood memories celebrate a time of rare beauty and delight.Called by Jean Renoir "the leading film artist of his age," Pagnol is best known for such films as The Baker's Wife, Harvest, Fanny, and Topaze, as well as the screen adaptations of his novels Jean de Florette and Manon of the Springs (North Point, 1988). But he never forgot the magic of his Provencal childhood, and when he set his memories to paper late in life the result was a great new success. My Father's Glory and My Mother's Castle appeared on the scene like a fresh breeze, captivating readers with its sweet enchantments. Pagnol recalls his days hunting and fishing in the hill country, his jaunts about Marseilles, his schoolboy diversions, and above all his family: his anticlerical father and sanctimonious uncle, his mild and beautiful mother, and many others. This bright and lively book sparkles with the charm and magic that were Marcel Pagnol's own.

La Gloire De Mon Pere ( My Father's Glory in FRENCH )

La Gloire De Mon Pere ( My Father's Glory in FRENCH )

Un petit Marseillais d'il y a un siècle: l'école primaire ; le cocon familial ; les premières vacances dans les collines, à La Treille ; la première chasse avec son père... Lorsqu il commence à rédiger ses Souvenirs d'enfance, au milieu des années cinquante, Marcel Pagnol est en train de s'éloigner du cinéma., et le théâtre ne lui sourit plus. La Gloire de mon père, dès sa parution, en 1957, est salué comme marquant l'avènement d'un grand prosateur. Joseph, le père instituteur., Augustine, la timide maman., l'oncle Jules, la tante Rosé, le petit frère Paul, deviennent immédiatement aussi populaires que Marius, César ou Panisse. Et la scène de la chasse à la bartavelle se transforme immédiatement en dictée d école primaire... Les souvenirs de Pagnol sont un peu ceux de tous les enfants du monde. Plus tard, paraît-il, Pagnol aurait voulu qu'ils deviennent un film. C 'est Yves Robert qui, longtemps après la mort de l'écrivain, le réalisera. « Je suis né dans la ville d'Aubagne. sons le Garlaban couronné de chèvres au temps des derniers chevriers. »

Book Review: My Father's Glory and My Mother's Castle

My Fathers Glory Book

Please consider reading this amazing modern classic! I might be generous in giving is the term "modern classic" but this story feels so timeless. I neglected to mention that this was published in 1987 but set in the early 1900s.
