Amid bullets and bombs, this handful of passionate book-lovers safeguarded more than 10,000 unique, hand-written antique books and documents – the most important texts held by Sarajevo's Gazi Husrav Beg Library, founded in 1537. As the 20th anniversary of the start of the siege of Sarajevo approaches, a documentary airing tonight on BBC4 tells the story of this extraordinary bid to protect a nation's history.

L'art de la bifurcation : dichotomie, mythomanie et uchronie dans l'oeuvre d'Emmanuel Carrère - Mario Touzin

Alain Green1(*) La bifurcation, chez Emmanuel Carrère2(*), prend les traits d'un univers dans lequel le quotidien bascule et plonge dans un monde d'étrangeté où la frontière entre le réel et le fictionnel semble parfois difficile à définir, où la double vie, ou double réalité, se déploie en vie réelle et vie rêvée, et où la bifurcation fait en sorte que les personnages basculent de l'une à l'autre. Cette bifurcation met en scène les trois structures suivantes : la dichotomie, la mythomanie et l'uchronie. Par dichotomie, nous entendons une figure qui est celle de l'altérité : l'effet de miroir projetant parfois l'image d'un « je » qui est « autre ». Dans le Petit Robert, on donne comme définition de la dichotomie : « Divisions et subdivisions binaires (entre deux éléments qu'on sépare nettement et qu'on oppose). De la mythomanie à l'uchronie * 2 Emmanuel Carrère est né à Paris le 9 décembre 1957. Free Novels Cyber-Books.
