Read full description of the books:



La vieille Yannou est au chevet de sa petite-fille, âgée de quelques jours à peine et déjà gravement malade. Au fil des heures de veille durant lesquelles elle se remémore sa vie passée, elle découvre qu'elle n'a jamais vécu que dans la servitude. Elle se persuade alors que son devoir est de délivrer - par tous les moyens - les petites filles de l'enfer qui les attend. Ecrit en 1903, Les Petites Filles et la Mort (dont le titre original se traduit par La Meurtrière) est le maître livre de Papadiamantis. Dans une tragédie qui va bien au-delà du tableau de mœurs, il invente une langue somptueuse et propose une réflexion sur la condition féminine, tissée d'obsessions personnelles, qui se révèle d'une inquiétante modernité.

Né à Skiathos dans les Sporades du Nord en 1851, d'un père pope, Alexandre Papadiamantis consacre sa vie à l'écriture. Après avoir écrit des romans historiques, il s'est ensuite exclusivement adonné au genre de la nouvelle, laissant à sa mort, en 1911, près de deux cents récits qui font de lui le plus grand nouvelliste grec. Il reste, pour reprendre les mots de Milan Kundera, " l'ambassadeur du Roman au pays de Byzance ".

Read information about the author

Ebook Les Petites filles et la mort read Online! Alexandros Papadiamantis (Greek: Αλέξανδρος Παπαδιαμάντης) was an influential Greek novelist and short-story writer.
He was born in Greece, on the island of Skiathos, in the western part of the Aegean Sea. The island would figure prominently in his work. His father was a priest. He moved to Athens as a young man to complete his high school studies, and enrolled in the philosophy faculty of Athens University, but never completed his studies.
He returned to his native island in later life, and died there. He supported himself by writing throughout his adult life, anything from journalism and short stories to several serialized novels. From a certain point onwards he had become very popular, and newspapers and magazines vied for his writings, offering him substantial fees. Papadiamantis did not care for money, and would often ask for lower fees if he thought they were unfairly high; furthermore he spent his money carelessly and took no care of his clothing and appearance. He never married, and was known to be a recluse, whose only true cares were observing and writing about the life of the poor, and chanting at church: he was referred to as "kosmokalogeros" (κοσμοκαλόγερος, "a monk in the world"). He died of pneumonia.
