Resumé:
La vie privée de M. Bergeret connait un grand bouleversement lorsqu'il découvre que sa femme l'a trompé avec son meilleur élève, M. Roux. En conformité avec son caractère, M. Bergeret décide alors de ne plus adresser la parole à sa femme. Il la soumet ainsi à une torture morale lente mais irrésistible qui porte ses fruits, car son épouse décidé de quitter le domicile conjugal à la fin du roman. Cependant M. Bergeret souffre lui aussi, principalement dans son orgueil. Il cherche sa consolation dans les livres et les idées, ce qui a des conséquences dans ses pensées et sa conversation où il tient des propos amers sur la vie, qui n'est que souffrance, et sur ses contemporains qu'il compare à des chimpanzés.

Extrait:
"Dans son cabinet de travail, au bruit clair et mécanique du piano sur lequel ses filles exécutaient, non loin, des exercices difficiles, M. Bergeret, maître de conférences à la Faculté des lettres, préparer sa leçon sur le huitième livre de l'Enéide. Le cabinet de travail de M.

Ebook Le Mannequin d'osier read Online! Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1921 "in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament."

Anatole France began his career as a poet and a journalist. In 1869, Le Parnasse Contemporain published one of his poems, La Part de Madeleine. In 1875, he sat on the committee which was in charge of the third Parnasse Contemporain compilation. He moved Paul Verlaine and Mallarmé aside of this Parnasse. As a journalist, from 1867, he wrote a lot of articles and notices. He became famous with the novel Le Crime de Sylvestre Bonnard (1881). Its protagonist, skeptical old scholar Sylvester Bonnard, embodied France's own personality. The novel was praised for its elegant prose and won him a prize from the French Academy. In La Rotisserie de la Reine Pedauque (1893) Anatole France ridiculed belief in the occult; and in Les Opinions de Jerome Coignard (1893), France captured the atmosphere of the fin de siècle.
He was elected to the Académie française in 1896.
France took an important part in the Dreyfus Affair. He signed Emile Zola's manifesto supporting Dreyfus, a Jewish army officer who had been falsely convicted of espionage. France wrote about the affair in his 1901 novel Monsieur Bergeret.
France's later works include L'Île des Pingouins (1908) which satirizes human nature by depicting the transformation of penguins into humans - after the animals have been baptized in error by the nearsighted Abbot Mael. La Revolte des Anges (1914) is often considered France's most profound novel. It tells the story of Arcade, the guardian angel of Maurice d'Esparvieu. Arcade falls in love, joins the revolutionary movement of angels, and towards the end realizes that the overthrow of God is meaningless unless "in ourselves and in ourselves alone we attack and destroy Ialdabaoth."
He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1921. He died in 1924 and is buried in the Neuilly-sur-Seine community cemetery near Paris.
In 1922, France's entire works were put on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (Prohibited Books Index) of the Roman Catholic Church.[2:] This Index was abolished in 1966.
