In the past I’ve read a few articles written by Alain Finkielkraut and I’ve appreciated his point of view.
This is my fist book written by him: the subject is what got me interested.
I’ve had the opportunity to listen with great pleasure to good readers reading out loud extracts from some of the books of Charles Peguy (“Le Mystère de la charité de Jeanne d’Arc”, “Le Porche du mystère de la deuxième vertu” and “Le Mystère des saints Innocents”)
Fascinated by the content I’ve tried a couple of time to read the books myself, but without success: it looks like they don’t work, at least for me, on the page but only when listening.
This book was a great opportunity to better understand the thinking of Charles Peguy and also the reasons why he’s relegated in a small niche.
Original title: Le Mécontemporain. Charles Péguy, lecteur du monde moderne
