Knut Hamsun

1,000 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Portuguese translation here

Knut Hamsun is a mystery. While almost all his works have been translated into French, while there have been quite a few movie and television adaptations, while—unlike so many others—his  books are “neither out-of-date nor obsolete” (Hubert Nyssen), he is still ignored by the French public.

Niccolò Machiavelli by Santi di Tito: “I prefer my fatherland to my own soul.”

838 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Even his own name has been turned against him. Indeed it is hardly flattering to be described as “Machiavellian.” One immediately envisions a hint of cunning and treacherous violence. And yet what led Machiavelli to write his most famous and scandalous work, The Prince, was concern for his fatherland, Italy. Read more …

The Warrior & the City

717 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Translations: Portuguese, Spanish

In 1814, at the end of the Napoleonic wars, Benjamin Constant wrote with relief: “We have arrived at the age of commerce, the age that must necessarily replace that of war, as the age of war necessarily had to precede it.” Naïve Benjamin! He took up the very widespread idea of indefinite progress supporting the advent of peace between men and nations.
