    (L'Autre Monde ou les États et Empires de la Lune) [Kindle] Ö Cyrano de Bergerac Wildly hereticalPublished posthumously and probably for the best considering the content Even with the liberal editing deletions by his friend prior to press But remember that Gallileo was forced to recant his theories in 1633 and Voyage to the Moon was published 24 years laters two years after De Bergerac's death Clearly written earlier and it is a forceful pro testa for the thesis and for science Predating Swift's Gulliver's Travels yet I

A Voyage to the Moon belongs on a shelf with Gulliver's Travels Gargantua and Pantagruel and Candide but I suspect you'll have trouble finding the book in English which is a shame Fortunately Google Books has an electronic late seventeenth century translation that comes with some great illustrations This is the edition that I have read It somet

This book may be appealing to those interested in the history of ideas or studying Cyrano However most of it is dialogues and monologues on ideas that today are extremely dated Discussions on in what way Aristotle s four elements compose all objects whether the sinless state of cabbages means they deserve special treatment and so forth Perhaps I ve taken clearly strange examples to get across the point but little of it seems applicable to modern conditions and understandingThe setting would justify calling this proto science fiction but most of it is discussion rather than exploration even in the sense of Gulliver s Travels The translator does try to find parallels with science fiction for instance since it s argued on spiritual grounds cabbages must have high intellects the translator thinks this is relevant to first contact issues I did not find such suggestions convincing but apparently some people do

Read L'Autre Monde ou les États et Empires de la Lune Cyrano de Bergerac ✓ 6 review review L'Autre Monde ou les États et Empires de la Lune ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ization and a scathing attack on the values and institutions of 18th century French society The real life Cyrano de Bergerac 1619–1655 made famous by Edmond Rostand was a dramatist and poet; in his prose works he shows himself to be the forerunner to Jules Verne and Johannes Keple. A delightful read Bergerac uses the conceit of travelling to another world populated by sentient intelligent beings whose ideas of life and living are different from those on earth Thus the author can legitimately present alternative world views and present philosophical arguments for and against different conceptions The book then becomes a sort of time capsule of the times in which Bergerac lived using the rather primitive to our eyes scientific ideas of the time although to be honest doesn t every child at heart dream of having a space ship powered only by balloons yet can operate as a way of opening his readers minds to the possibilities that there are alternative concepts of morality and customs than one s own

Read L'Autre Monde ou les États et Empires de la Lune Cyrano de Bergerac ✓ 6 review review L'Autre Monde ou les États et Empires de la Lune ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB What if the moon were another world for which ours served as the moon An absurd notion but one which leads our narrator to travel to a paradisiacal world in which he is a monster a malfunction of nature and a myth The dream uickly becomes a nightmare however when the ruling ecclesiast. Cyrano de Bergerac was a real person He wrote poetry plays and books as well as being the inspiration for Edmond Rostand s best known work the play titled Cyrano de Bergerac In the fascinating introduction to A Voyage To The Moon we learn about Cyrano he did serve in the Guards an elite unit of noble young men of his day and he was not a Gascon by birth but by the force of his personality His feud with the actor Montfleury was real and so was Bergerac s infamous nose It appears in all the portraits of which there are four And in all of these it is the same not a little ugly nose flat at the top and projecting at the bottom in a little long gable turned up at the end but a large generous well shaped nose hooked rather than retrouss and planted suarely in the symmetrical middle of the face not ridiculous but monumentalCyrano himself describes it in a play that I would love to be able to read since according to the author of the introduction Cyrano was responsible for introducing to the stage the comical peasant which Moliere later relied upon in his own works But back to The Nose Here is what Cyrano says about it in his play Le Pedant Joue Comedy This veridic nose arrives everywhere a uarter of an hour before its master Ten shoemakers good round fat ones too go and sit down to work under it out of the rainOf course he was the only person ever allowed to say anything about The Nose Many duels were fought over it and than ten men were killed because of it So this passage from Chapter 15 of A Voyage To The Moon is obviously Cyrano s way of thumbing that Nose at the world Cyrano had gone out for a walk and returned late for dinner and explained to his hosts that no one told him the a clock when he asked they merely made strange faces at him Then he learns how to tell time on the Moon How cried all the Company did not you know by that that they shewed you what it was a Clock Faith said I they might have held their great Noses in the Sun long enough before I had understood what they meant It s a Commodity said they that saves them the Trouble of a Watch for with their Teeth they make so true a Dial that when they would tell any Body the Hour of the day they do no but open their Lips and the shadow of that Nose falling upon their Teeth like the Gnomon of a Sun Dial makes the precise timeNow that you may know the reason why all People in this Country have great Noses as soon as a Woman is brought to Bed the Midwife carries the Child to the Master of the Seminary and exactly at the years end the Skillful being assembled if his Nose prove shorter than the standing Measure which an Alderman keeps he is judged to be a Flat Nose and delivered over to be gelt You ll ask me no doubt the Reason of that Barbarous Custom and how it comes to pass that we amongst whom Virginity is a Crime should enjoyn Continence by force but know that we do so because after Thirty Ages experience we have observed that a great Nose is the mark of a Witty Courteous Affable Generous and Liberal Man and that a little Nose is a Sign of the contrary Wherefore of Flat Noses we make Eunuchs because the Republick had rather have no Children at all than Children like themWell enough about the man s nose what about the book he wrote right Okay This was great fun for me to read especially considering that during Cyrano s day the debate was still raging about whether the Earth revolved around the sun or vice versa Imagine letting your imagination fly to the moon in those days How would you get there and what would you find when you landed Books with covers made of mother of pearl and operated with a little key that you wound up long enough for the book to play you a chapter Towns that move according to the seasons of the year by using wheels and giant bellows built into the walls of the palaces so that when activated they sail along like a ship at sea Other towers that are furnished with giant screws that will twist them down into the ground during bad storms The true reason that all good cooks are fat even though they never seem to sit down and eat they get their nourishment from the steam coming out of their cooking pots Beds that are nothing than layers of flowers three feet deepCyrano s voyage gave him the chance to discuss philosophy politics and the origins of Man with the people of the Moon which of course meant he was able to share his own ideas on those topics Sometimes I got a bit lost during these discussions but mostly I could follow along without too many What Did He Say moments I thought the book was ingeniously clever I was absolutely delighted with all of it and wish once again that I could have met and talked with Cyrano de Bergerac I very greatly doubt I could have kept up with his wit in person but it would have been such fun to try
