Fourvel (Christophe) : Tant de silences

Nothing as mysterious and universal as silence. And yet not all the silences we experience have the same cause. There is the silence of speechless emotion, the silence in front of creation, the silence prompted by horror. Titian grows silent looking at his own Venus of Urbino, just like the Italian film director Ettore Scola in the twilight of his life, Liliane, the main character of a movie by Jacques Rozier, while dancing a summer dance, or just any of us when facing with the atrocities of war. This book is a portrait of silence in art and life, an inventory of the silences that take hold of us as fathers, mothers, children, lovers or disciples.
