La Tentation de Saint Antoine Characters Á PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Gustave Flaubert ↠ 2 Free read Read La Tentation de Saint Antoine Tres ses obsessions ses ténèbres Oeuvre de toute ma vie disait Flaubert elle est aussi le cabinet secret de son esprit selon Baudelaire ui voulait surtout attirer l'attention du lecteur s. The temptation of Saint Anthony is Flaubert s entire life s work He had had the first idea of it in 1845 in Genoa Italy by watching a painting by Breughel The Temptations of Saint Anthony Besides in the descriptions of the book we find many of Breughel s paintings Since that time he hasn t stopped thinking about itIn 1846 Flaubert launched into immense readings without any apparent goal but all of which gravitated or less around the Greco Latin antiuity and led by infinite detours on this terrible subject Saint AnthonyFlaubert works on his Saint Antoine episodically all his life long He wants to get into the skin of Saint Anthony This is also a book that mustn t fail to write I know what s missing now but it takes time time In 1869 Flaubert starts again working on his Saint Anthony He devours ecclesiastical memoirs and the Fathers of the Church He wants to find a logical link between the various hallucinations of the Saint This extravagant environment pleases himBut happen the death of his friend Louis Bouilhet and the Franco German war of 1870 Flaubert is morally depressed He can no read and writeThen he gets used to what is the natural state of man that is to say to misfortune and he works once in his Saint AnthonyIn April 1872 Flaubert s mother died Saint Antoine bothers its author like life itself I d need enthusiasm to finish it he writesIn June The Temptation of Saint Anthony is finally ended I m done with this work that has been my job for twenty five yearsFlaubert s work is slated by criticism in the pressPersonally it was not easy for me to read The Temptation of Saint Anthony To truly appreciate it one must probably be as erudite as Flaubert in matters of religion religions history of Greco Roman antiuity and I am notBut what does it matter if just like this poor Saint Anthony sometimes I lost myself in this fantastic tohubohu of ideas and images For Flaubert made me suffer like the holy man I made his dreams I suffered his nightmares I lived his hallucinationsBut I also met the temptress ueen of Sheba I am not a woman I am a world My cloak has only to fall in order that thou mayest discover a succession of mysteries She offers Saint Anthony all she has and the list is long Do you want the shield of Dgian ben Dgian who built the pyramids There it is Upon one side are represented all the wars that have taken place since the invention of weapons and upon the other all the wars that will take place until the end of the world The whole world in a woman all the wars of the world on a shield Aren t these sentences simple perfect a jewel of thought But the holy man is strong Hilarion says to him All the Capital Sins came hither But their wretched snares can avail nothing against such a Saint as you And he adds Hypocrite burying thyself in solitude only in order the fully to abandon thyself to the indulgence of thy envious desires What if thou dost deprive thyself of meats of wine of warmth of bath of slaves or honours dost thou not permit thy imagination to offer thee banuets perfumes women and the applause of multitudes Thy chastity is but a subtle form of corruption and thy contempt of this world is but the impotence of thy hatred against it Either this it is that makes such as thyself so lugubrious or else tis doubt The possession of truth giveth joy Was Jesus sad Did he not travel in the company of friends repose beneath the shade of olive trees enter the house of the publican drink many cups of wine pardon the sinning woman and assuage all sorrows Thou thou hast no pity save for thine own misery It is like a remorse that gnaws thee a savage madness that impels thee to repel the caress of a dog or to frown upon the smile of a childI uite agree with HilarionThere are so many interesting thoughts like this one Is not the word of God confirmed for us by miracles Nevertheless the magicians of Pharaoh performed miracles other imposters can perform them one may be thereby deceived What then is a miracle An event which seems to us outside of nature But do we indeed know all of Nature s powers and because a common occurrence causes us no astonishment does it therefore follow that we understand it Or this one Tertullien thinks that Jesus face was wild and repulsive forasmuch as he had burthened himself with all the crimes all the woes all the deformities of mankindBut Saint Anthony replies Oh no no I imagine on the contrary that his entire person must have been glorious with a beauty greater than the beauty of manAnd you what do you think Finally What is the purpose of all this Antoine asksThere is no goal the devil answers Things happen to you only through your mind Like a concave mirror it deforms objects and you lack all means to verify their accuracy You ll never know the universe in its full extent therefore you cannot get an idea of its cause have a fair notion of God or even say that the universe is infinite The form is perhaps an error of your senses the substance an imagination of your thought Unless the world being a perpetual flow of things the appearance on the contrary is all that is most true the illusion the only reality

This is a pretty damn weird book in the best possible way You always hear about Flaubert as a realist Flaubert as wanting to write a novel about nothing Flaubert as being obsessed with form and so on Well this was published 17 years after Madame Bovary and is not exactly a realist novel It s like a medieval passion play with historical people rather than personifications First Antony is tempted by biblical characters the ueen of Sheba Nebuchadnezzar then he confronted by heretics and theologians Marcion various Gnostics Origen and pretty much everyone else and finally he s given a vision of most of the gods anyone could be acuainted with by the 19th century I don t really know who to recommend this to except a friend of mine who is writing a dissertation on someone who was obsessed with gnosticism and another who s a junkie for church history On the other hand it s fascinating and moving And everyone should read it especially if you re into books which really don t have many precedents Faust aside

At age 24 Flaubert saw Bruegel s painting The Temptation of Saint Anthony and decided he would turn it into a play Like all his literary projects he took it very seriously He wanted to describe a third century hermit sitting on a mountain top in the Egyptian desert and being tempted by the Devil and he spent most of the rest of his life writing and rewriting it the final version came out nearly thirty years later only a few years before his death It s a poetic dream and it s one of the weirdest things I ve ever read It took me a while to get into it At first I think I was expecting it to make sense in an obvious way which it doesn t About halfway through I found that just reading it appreciating the sound and the images was enjoyable Flaubert succeeds in capturing the logic of a dream and I also started believing in his picture of Anthony s mind When you re a saint you spend most of your time thinking about God and trying to get closer to Him But you also think about many other things and often you aren t sure what brings you closer to God and what is just pride and lust in disguise It s natural to compare with TS Eliot s Murder in the Cathedral which could have been partially inspired by Flaubert s book In Eliot s version it s usually pretty clear when Thomas is being tempted In Flaubert it often isn t clear at all Several times he believed and I believed too that Jesus was speaking to him and then it turned out to be the Devil in one of his many subtle forms And these were really good temptations Sex keeps coming up and the sexy bits are very sexy When the Devil starts pointing out all the mistakes and inconsistencies in Holy Writ he doesn t pull his punches You can feel Anthony s pain as he wonders how to reconcile this with his faith that the Bible is God s word The Devil explains a host of enticing heresies and they are so enticing that even commentators who have spent years thinking about this book aren t sure There s a passage which explains the mystical nature of the Word and one commentator calls it deep poetic truth another says it s clever but not serious I think that s absolutely right Anthony is meant to be confused and we re meant to be confused with himI do not myself believe in God but I was moved by this portrayal of the religious world view from the inside Right now religion is being cheapened by people who cynically use it to achieve their worldly ends Gustave Flaubert thank you for reminding me that there s to it than the Christian Right and for trying to show us the beauty and terror of God s true form It s an impossible task but I think you got as close as any mortal is likely to come
