Jean Giono (Author), Henri Fluchere (Author), Geoffrey Myers (Author) & 0 more. I'm glad to see there is ongoing interest in Giono's unique novel, and that Counterpoint has taken it up. This book expresses something about being fully alive in the natural world that is rarely so beautifully articulated.

The Song of the World (French: Le Chant du monde) is a 1934 novel by the French writer Jean Giono. The story contains references to the Iliad. Its themes and view on nature were heavily inspired by Walt Whitman's poetry collection Leaves of Grass. It was adapted into the 1965 film Le Chant du monde, directed by Marcel Camus.

Jean Giono, Henri Fluchere (Translator). Geoffrey Myers (Translator). With its taut, fast-paced story and pastoral setting, The Song of the World is another triumph from the celebrated author of the Man who Planted Trees.

from The Books in My Life by Henry Miller. It was in the rue d’Alésia, in one of those humble stationery stores which sell books, that I first came across Jean Giono’s works. It was the daughter of the proprietor-bless her soul!-who literally thrust upon me the book called Que ma joie demeure! (The Joy of Man’s Desiring). In 1939, after making a pilgrimage to Manosque with Giono’s boyhood friend, Henri Fluchère, the latter bought for me Jean le Bleu (Blue Boy), which I read on the boat going to Greece.

This author is very unusual. I find myself reading the book very, very slowly, because I don't want the world he's created to end. I lost my first copy, and so ordered this quickly. It's a very right-brained book; I totally love it.

I first read Jean Giono's (1895-1970) vivid narrative, written in 1934, when the now defunct North Point Press lovingly re-issued this classic in 1981. I'm glad to see there is ongoing interest in Giono's unique novel, and that Counterpoint has taken it up. This book expresses something about being fully alive in the natural world that is rarely so beautifully articulated. I explored forests and mountains, running at night with stars for company; Giono captures that vitality and mystery. A review can't say more than the writer himself:

"Antonio heard the sound of ... the night teeming with life in the forest ... It filled all the tree-clad hills with its presence. It was in the sky and on the earth like rain; it came from all sides at once and it surged up slowly like a heavy wave, rumbling ... Life in its fullness flowed gently over the hills and dales of the earth" (page 10).

"Night. The river shouldered its way through the forest. Antonio walked out to the far end of the island. On one side, the deep water, sleek as cat's fur ... Antonio felt the oak. He listened through his had to the shiverings of the tree. It was an aged oak, more sinewy than a man of the mountains. it stood at the very tip of the isle of jays, right in the rush of the stream, ans already, half its roots emerged from the water" (3). "Usually he began the day by crossing the large black branch of the river. He drifted along with the currents; he felt the swirls of each eddy... From all that, he knew whether he had to take the net with the wide or the small mesh, the hand net ... or whether he had better go and catch fish with his hands in the pebbled shallows of the ford. He knew whether the pike shot out of the banks, whether the trout swam upstream" (18).

Enjoy!

This book, and Giono's Joy of Man's Desiring, are the two of the most beautiful, wise, transformative works of fiction that I know -- even in translation. The translations are excellent, but Giono's writing, and his vision, are among the wisest and most eloquent in any language -- it is these books that gave me the impetus to be a writer. If you care for nature, and the prospect of humankind living in genuine participation and reciprocity with earthly nature, these are your books. An essential tonic for our collective ecological insanity...

This may be the most curious and powerful book you have never heard about. Operates at a strange subconscious level in a most primitive way. Deserves to be counted among the great classics of the 20th Century.

Odd to judge it this way, but Giono's other works are largely life-affirming, joyous, magical. THE SONG OF THE WORLD is dionysian, cruel, without hope, a curse on humanity --- it says we are fated animals without minds. Reading it is a nightmare. Patriarchy, tyranny, lust, cruelty, brutality, animality (Johnny Rotten once said "I hate everything that ends with a Y.")

Yes, it is a marvellous saga, well-written, magically worded, astounding. But its product is death in a wild world before individual humans could construct their own lives according to their principles and wishes and thoughts. A dangerous book.
I have read and re-read TO THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE, TWO RIDERS OF THE STORM, and JOY OF MAN'S DESIRING several times (though JOY too verges on the dangerous, as does HARVEST). Giono is a writer of genius. Tread carefully.
