2ème lecture -fev. 2017 :
C'est fascinant de relire un tel livre, adoré enfant.
De la prose de Kessel, aux thèmes, puissants et cruels, abordés, Le Lion est un roman poignant. Une réflexion sur l'enfance, un roman d'initiation, un voyage somptueux. Mais surtout, pour moi, Kessel décrit magnifiquement l'attrait, l'appel que la nature la plus sauvage, mêlée de cruauté et de beauté, exerce sur l'homme.
Kessel est peut-être un journaliste avant d'être un écrivain. Et on le sent dans cette certaine froideur avec laquelle il accueille les propos extrêmement racistes des trois protagonistes. Il les observe, les analyse mais ne les excuse pas. Ce qui fait du roman aussi un intéressant témoignage, bien que dérangeant, sur le colonialisme de l'époque.
C'est drôle, j'en gardais un souvenir beau et touchant, je le redécouvre aussi dur et cruel. Mais toujours magnifique.

-------------------------------
Lu gamine, cette fascinante amitié entre une petite fille et un lion m'a laissé un souvenir très fort, un de mes plus jolis moments de lecture. Il faudra que je me fasse le plaisir de le relire adulte!

Joseph Kessel was a French journalist and novelist.He was born in Villa Clara, Entre Ríos, Argentina, because of the constant journeys of his father, a Lithuanian doctor of Jewish origin. Joseph Kessel lived the first years of his childhood in Orenburg, Russia, before the family moved to France. He studied in Nice and Paris, and took part in the First World War as an aviator.

Kessel wrote several novels and books that were later represented in the cinema, notably Belle de Jour (by Luis Buñuel in 1967). He was also a member of the Académie française from 1962 to 1979.
