Présentation de l'éditeur :

Booth Tarkington (July 29, 1869 – May 19, 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams. He is one of only three novelists (the others being William Faulkner and John Updike) to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction more than once. The Magnificent Ambersons is a 1918 novel by Booth Tarkington which won the 1919 Pulitzer Prize for novel. It was the second novel in his Growth trilogy, which included The Turmoil (1915) and The Midlander (1923, retitled National Avenue in 1927). In 1942 Orson Welles directed an acclaimed film version of the book; Welles's original screenplay was the basis of 2002 TV movie produced by the A&E Network. The novel and trilogy trace the growth of the United States through the declining fortunes of three generations of the aristocratic Amberson family in a fictional Midwestern town, between the end of the Civil War and the early part of the 20th century, a period of rapid industrialization and socio-economic change in America. The decline of the Ambersons is contrasted with the rising fortunes of industrial tycoons and other new-money families, which did not derive power from family names but by "doing things." As George Amberson's friend (name unspecified) says, "don't you think being things is 'rahthuh bettuh' than doing things?" (wikipedia.org)

Description du livre Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2014. Paperback. État : New. Original, Unabridged. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Magnificent Ambersons is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Booth Tarkington. It was the second novel in his Growth trilogy. The story is set in a largely fictionalized version of Indianapolis. The novel and trilogy trace the growth of the United States through the declining fortunes of three generations of the aristocratic Amberson family in an upper-scale Indianapolis neighborhood, between the end of the Civil War and the early part of the 20th century, a period of rapid industrialization and socio-economic change in America. The decline of the Ambersons is contrasted with the rising fortunes of industrial tycoons and other new-money families, who derived power not from family names but by doing things. As George Amberson s friend says, don t you think being things is rahthuh bettuh than doing things? The family is the most prosperous and powerful in town at the turn of the century. Young George Amberson Minafer, the patriarch s grandson, is spoiled terribly by his mother Isabel. Growing up arrogant, sure of his own worth and position, and totally oblivious to the lives of others, George falls in love with Lucy Morgan, a young though sensible debutante. But there is a long history between George s mother and Lucy s father, of which George is unaware. As the town grows into a city, industry thrives, the Ambersons prestige and wealth wanes, and the Morgans, thanks to Lucy s prescient father, grow prosperous. When George sabotages his widowed mother s growing affections for Lucy s father, life as he knows it comes to an end. The Magnificent Ambersons is perhaps Tarkington s best novel, said Van Wyck Brooks. [It is] a typical story of an American family and town-the great family that locally ruled the roost and vanished virtually in a day as the town spread and darkened into a city. This novel no doubt was a permanent page in the social history of the United States, so admirably conceived and written was the tale of the Ambersons, their house, their fate and the growth of the community in which they were submerged in the end.
