Auteurs Vietnamiens: Nguyen Huy Thiep

Nguyen Huy Thiep, né à Hanoï en 1950, est connu du public en Occident et au Viêt Nam surtout pour ses nouvelles littéraires, même s'il a déjà à son actif des pièces de théâtre et un roman publié en 2005 intitulé "À nos vingt ans". L'une de ses oeuvres, intitulée "Un général à la retraite", publiée en 1987, a créé un scandale au Vietnam. Comme ses collègues Duong Thu Huong, Pham Thi Hoai et Bao Ninh, il représente la nouvelle génération d'écrivains qui veulent se distinguer du "réalisme socialiste". Ouvrages traduits en français:

Here is a short picture of the literary world under the last dynasty of Vietnam: the Nguyen. 

Indeed, the 19th Century was a flourishing century for literature and the arts in Vietnam. It opened up with the Kim Vân Kiều  by Nguyễn Du (1765-1820) and closed with the anonymous Song of True Patriotism (Chính Khí Ca :1900). 

Three outstanding talents, Nguyen Du, Mdm Ho Xuan Huong and Nguyen Dinh Chieu contri…
