The Medina -- the outdated urban -- of Fez is the best-preserved, medieval walled urban on the earth. inside of this bright Moroccan neighborhood, net cafes and cell phones coexist with a maze of donkey-trod alleyways, thousand-year-old sewer structures, and Arab-style homes, stunning with problematic, if frequently shabby, mosaic paintings.
While touring in Morocco, Suzanna Clarke and her husband, Sandy, are encouraged to shop for a dilapidated, centuries-old riad in Fez with the purpose of restoring it to its unique beauty, utilizing merely conventional craftsmen and hand-crafted fabrics. So starts a impressive experience that's bewildering, from time to time hilarious, and eventually immensely lucrative.
A apartment in Fez chronicles their meticulous recovery, however it can also be a trip into Moroccan customs and lore and a window into the lives of its humans as friendships blossom. while the riad is ultimately lower back to its former glory, Suzanna unearths she has not only restored an previous residence, but in addition her soul.

Variation enrichie (Introduction, notes, file et chronologie)
Placés sous le signe du temps qui passe, les poèmes d’Alcools récréent tout un monde : celui des lieux où son lifestyles a conduit leur auteur et dont ils entrecroisent les souvenirs, comme celui de ces grandes figures féminines qui ont traversé sa vie. Mais ils sont en même temps imprégnés d’une tradition à l. a. fois populaire et savante qui permet au poète de recueillir l’héritage du passé tout en s’ouvrant à los angeles modernité de los angeles vie ordinaire – les affiches ou bien les avions. On aurait ainsi tort de croire que ce recueil où s’inaugure los angeles poésie du XXe siècle soit, à sa parution en 1913, un livre de rupture. Nourri de poèmes anciens aussi bien que récents, le chant que font entendre ceux d’Apollinaire, à l’oralité si puissante, tire ses ressources du vers régulier comme du vers libre, et il ne s’agit pas pour le poète de céder au easy plaisir du nouveau : seule compte ici sa liberté et ce que lui dicte l. a. voix inimitable d’un lyrisme qui n’a pas cessé de nous toucher.
