Download La Grèce fantôme : voyage au bout de la crise (2010-2013) by Panagiotis Grigoriou PDF

By Panagiotis Grigoriou

En mai 2010, le FMI, l’Union européenne et los angeles BCE, ont missionné leurs specialists et mis le can pay sous leur tutelle : Trois ans plus tard, au lieu d’un redressement des funds, on assiste à un effondrement du can pay et à une disaster humanitaire. los angeles Grèce n’est plus que le fantôme d’elle-même. Panagiotis Grigoriou fait l. a. chronique de l. a. vie effroyable en temps de crise financière. Historien et ethnologue ayant longtemps enseigné en France, il choisit de vivre à Athènes en 2008 : dès le déclenchement des événements, il décide de rapporter le quotidien des Grecs dans un web publication, Greek trouble, qui connaît un succès immédiat. Ces histoires sont celles de los angeles classe moyenne qui disparaît partiellement du monde du travail, des actifs tous touchés par le chômage et, pour les plus « chanceux » d’entre eux, contraints à prendre le chemin de l’exil. Il dit le désespoir des petits commerçants, des étudiants, des diplômés ou encore des retraités, à l. a. recherche de stratégies de rechange, souvent dérisoires ou impossibles : quitter le will pay, changer de secteur d’activité, se répolitiser, se dé-socialiser, ou encore se suicider ou se laisser mourir… Ce sont les seules possible choices laissées à une inhabitants totalement déstabilisée, qui n’a plus d’autre standpoint que sa survie immédiate. l. a. crise ne s’est pas abattue sur l. a. Grèce à reason des errements réels et avérés de sa classe politique. L’explosion de l. a. dette du can pay n’est pas los angeles seule reason : los angeles Grèce a été choisie comme laboratoire des politiques d’austérité, elle est soumise à une expérience-limite. l. a. Grèce fantôme se veut aussi une réflexion sur le projet européen et ses incohérences, voire ses faillites.

Panagiotis Grigoriou a contribué à l’élaboration du movie documentaire Khaos. Les visages humains de l. a. crise grecque, réalisée par Ana Dumitrescu (2012).

Download Erotika Indiscreta: Ensayo Novelado (Spanish Edition) by Josef Carel PDF

By Josef Carel

Erótica no es sexo, tampoco romántica, pero es un preámbulo en el primer caso y un essential escondido, indiscreto en el caso del Amor. los angeles erótica provee a los humanos las posibilidades enormes de encuentro entre las personas; desde los angeles estética de los cuerpos y los objetos, el encuentro visible entre dos personas mirándose a los ojos con fruición; aromas, colores y formas, sonidos estéticos que alimentan pasiones. El erotismo está en todos y cualquiera, pero tiende a deformar y caer en l. a. banalidad, cuando el deseo supera las emociones y las ansias vulgares a las ambiciones de evolución ética
El término se origina en el dios griego Eros, pero en aquella sociedad, su estatua indicaba un lugar de reunión de hombres. Para el caso que más nos ocupa, los angeles belleza y el Amor entre personas, Afrodita es más representativa, aunque los angeles proliferación de dioses que versan sobre el tema, explica los diferentes aspectos del Amor. Y no obstante, Erótica
Cunde y se surte l. a. imaginación de tantas formas de goce y placer ante l. a. visión erótica. Estas narraciones vienen a aportar a nuestra memoria algo de aquello que es l. a. vida

Download Un mal poema ensucia el mundo: Ensayos sobre poesía, by Joan Margarit PDF

By Joan Margarit

«Nadie es más difícil de engañar que los lectores de poesía.»

Joan Margarit, probablemente el poeta catalán más leído de nuestro tiempo, en España y fuera de ella, ha creado con los años una obra en prosa paralela a su poesía, una prosa ensayística y reflexiva, vulnerable de considerarse y leerse autónomamente, cargada de intención, profundidad y gracia, e impregnada de esa "honesta intensidad" que nuestro autor ha reclamado siempre al poema y a los angeles vida. Breves ensayos hasta ahora dispersos y que, de l. a. mano de Jordi Gracia, quedan reunidos definitivamente en este volumen.

El resultado es un libro que cautivará los angeles sensibilidad y l. a. atención del lector, no sólo del lector de poesía o de los angeles poesía de Margarit en specific, sino de todos aquellos que, desde los angeles reflexión sobre el hecho poético —cómo, por qué y para qué escribimos poemas; cómo, por qué y para qué leemos poesía— deseen acompañarle aún más allá, a los angeles reflexión sobre las grandes cuestiones de los angeles vida: el dolor o los angeles felicidad, l. a. amistad o l. a. pérdida, los angeles soledad y el amor.
