Pequena biografia
Saul Bellow est un écrivain et universitaire américain.

Il est né en 1915, à Lachine, une banlieue industrielle de Montréal, le 10 juin 1915. Ses parents ont émigré deux ans auparavant de la Russie du tsar, de Saint-Pétersbourg. Le père de Saul, Abraham Bellow – le « gentilhomme » évoqué dans le roman le plus autobiographique, Herzog –, après avoir fait faillite comme boulanger, exerce plusieurs petits métiers.
Enfant, Saul Bellow grandit dans un quartier miséreux de Montréal, au contact de la communauté juive. Lorsqu'il a neuf ans, la famille Bellow émigre de nouveau et s'installe dans un quartier polonais du West Side de Chicago.
Saul a une enfance rêveuse et solitaire – studieuse aussi, car il est très tôt attiré par les choses de l'esprit. L'influence juive est prépondérante; il suit d'ailleurs un enseignement talmudique.

Étudiant brillant, il fréquente l'université de Chicago, puis la Northwestern University où il étudie l'anthropologie et la sociologie. Jeune écrivain, pour gagner sa vie, il collabore quelque temps à l'Encyclopaedia Britannica tout en enseignant dans un collège de Chicago. Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, il sert dans la marine marchande; dès la fin du conflit, il s'installe à New York.

Au confluent de trois cultures - américaine, russe et yiddish -, Saul Bellow se veut un moraliste, un chroniqueur de son siècle et un découvreur d'idées nouvelles. Cet humaniste est peut-être l'écrivain américain qui récapitule le mieux l'expérience des immigrants ou fils d'immigrants à la découverte de leur Amérique, en porte-à-faux dans leur pays et dans leur époque : de cette instabilité, de ce désarroi du moi, il a fait le thème de toute son œuvre, laquelle atteint rapidement une audience internationale et est couronnée du prix Nobel en 1976.

Huckleberry Finn and this outstanding book are comparable in terms of significance and creative writing abilities. A significant book to appreciate for its exquisite writing.

I didn’t do this book justice. I listened to it on my walks, and I let my mind wander too often. Herzog’s letters to the living and dead were full of philosophical meandering and worthy of a closer listen. Bellow has a terrific mind. I’d love to discuss his life views over dinner.

Reason read: Reading 1001 TBR takedown, January 2024. Dangling Man was written by Saul Bellow in 1944 and takes the form of a diary. the story centers on the life of an unemployed young man named Joseph, his relationships with his wife and friends, and his frustrations with living in Chicago and waiting to be drafted. This is the author's debut novel and is not his best by a long shot. I do think that a man who is not working and has no motivation is probably a miserable man and this man is miserable and is set on making everyone around him miserable even the reader of the book. Little plot otherwise. I rate it 2 stars.… (mais)
