Rousseau, Rousseau, Rousseau Que dire Les confessions livre 1 6 est le premier crit de Rousseau que j ai lu Conclusion J aime bien sa mani re d crire C est, comment dire Entrainant Intrigant Quoi qu il en soit, c tait assez int ressant pour que je finisse la lecture En fait je crois que je suis jalouse de la jeunesse qu il a eue Il pouvait partir, voyager, dormir o bon lui semblait et faire des voyages pied, qui ne sont plus vraiment possible de nos jours Mais ne nous garons pas et retournons sur les confessions C est, certes, long et difficile lire Il faut donc s accrocher Mais si on trouve le courage et l envie de lire l autobiographie de notre tr s cher Jean Jacques, je pense qu il faut le faire Essai sur lui m me, J J Rousseau livre ses confessions Ce projet diphas e a, d une part, pour objet intime une connaissance de lui m me, et d autre part, l ouverture de son coeur et de son me au lecteur, o l auteur se justifie en se sens, il ne s agit pas de ses m moires, mais bien de ses confessions Si le r cit est chronologique d v nements, il est difficile de ne pas perdre le go t de la lecture tant la trame est jalonn d un trop plein voyages, rencontres et d tours. Sexist, boring trash. . Les confessions de Rousseau sont peniblement longs Elles sont remarquables pour sa candeur Rousseau avoue par exemple qu il a place ses cinq enfants naturels chez des orphelinats pour enfants retrouves Il y en plus de ce genre On s etonne toujours du fait que Rousseau avouait de son propre gre autant des actes deloyaux.Dans les derniers tomes, Rousseau ecrit dans un delire incoherent, evidement tres rancunier a l egard des Francais qui l ont oblige a s exiler en Angleterre.La lecture des confessions mene invevitablement a la conclusion que le grand philosophe a ete tout un salaud dans sa vie prive Son cas n est pas unique et je ne suis pas convaincu que ca vaut la peine de lire cet ouvrage grotesque afin de savoir tous les details. If I could get my hands on Rousseau I will slap him in the face again and again and again.Hated his confessions , didn t help I had to study it in school.
