Read full description of the books Le Chevalier inexistant:Venu passer ses troupes en revue, Charlemagne découvre que sous l'armure de l'exemplaire paladin Agilulfe il n'y a personne... Agilulfe n'existe pas. Ce qui ne m'empêche pas de combattre ni de commander à son écuyer Gourdoulou - lequel existe bien, mais ne le sait pas. Derrière son ironie burlesque, Italo Calvino nous livre une profonde réflexion sur la guerre et le sens de l'histoire, et nous confie, en filigrane, ses pensées sur l'écriture.
Read information about the authorItalo Calvino was born in Cuba and grew up in Italy. He was a journalist and writer of short stories and novels. His best known works include the Our Ancestors trilogy (1952-1959), the Cosmicomics collection of short stories (1965), and the novels Invisible Cities (1972) and If On a Winter's Night a Traveler (1979).
His style is not easily classified; much of his writing has an air of the fantastic reminiscent of fairy tales (Our Ancestors, Cosmicomics), although sometimes his writing is more "realistic" and in the scenic mode of observation (Difficult Loves, for example). Some of his writing has been called postmodern, reflecting on literature and the act of reading, while some has been labeled magical realist, others fables, others simply "modern". He wrote: "My working method has more often than not involved the subtraction of weight. I have tried to remove weight, sometimes from people, sometimes from heavenly bodies, sometimes from cities; above all I have tried to remove weight from the structure of stories and from language."
