By Guy Debord

C'est en 1979 que man Debord décide, une première fois, de quitter un Paris qui à ses yeux avait, depuis longtemps déjà, tout perdu de son charme.

Si le siège de l'état-major s'est déplacé, l'état de guerre, pour lui, reste everlasting : depuis los angeles scenario en Italie, dont il donne une examine lucide dans sa Préface à l. a. quatrième édition italienne de «La Société du spectacle», jusqu'à celle de l'Espagne de l'après-franquisme, qui le conduit à mener campagne en faveur des «autono­mes» emprisonnés à Ségovie, le tout entrecoupé de «jours tranquilles» passés ici ou là, durant lesquels conseils, traductions et courses se succèdent. Le five mars 1984, le mystérieux assassinat de son ami éditeur le pousse dans un nouveau kind de wrestle, cette fois contre une presse particulièrement déchaînée et hostile.

De ces années pleines de bruit et de fureur en tout style, beaucoup de choses vont être retenues et analysées qui alimen­teront les prochains Commentaires sur los angeles société du spectacle.

By Stefan Zweig

Variation enrichie (préface, notes, biographie de l'écrivain, bibliographie)

Qui est cet inconnu able d’en remontrer au grand Czentovic, champion mondial des échecs, véritable prodige aussi fruste qu’antipathique ? Peut-on le croire, quand il affirme qu’il n’a pas joué depuis plus de vingt ans ? Les circonstances dans lesquelles l’homme a acquis cette technological know-how sont terribles. Elles nous renvoient aux expérimentations nazies sur les effets de l’isolement absolu, lorsque, aux frontières de los angeles folie, entre deux interrogatoires, le cerveau humain parvient à déployer ses facultés les plus étranges. Une myth inquiétante, fantastique, qui, comme le dit un personnage avec une ironie douloureuse, « pourrait servir d’illustration à l. a. charmante époque où nous vivons ».

Traduction, préface et commentaires par Brigitte Vergne-Cain et Gérard Rudent.
