summary The Library at Night review The Library at Night 103 read ¹ eBook or Kindle ePUB Í Alberto Manguel A partir da sua mítica biblioteca pessoal Alberto Manguel um dos mais conceituados bibliófilos do mundo conta nos tudo o ue sabe sobre a história o fascínio e os enigmas das bibliotecasAo construir a sua biblioteca com mais de 40 mil livros num antigo presbitério em França Alberto Manguel debateu se com as mesmas uestões de um ualuer bibliotecário caseiro é me Alberto Manguel understands youHe knows that you look at your shelves at night remembering a favorite passage or how you acuired a book as your gaze moves across titles on spines in the moonlightHe sympathizes with your attempts to figure out new ways to organize your books a task that becomes urgent and at the same time impossible as time passes and your collection grows outside the spatial boundaries of your shelves or perhaps even of your home He understands your frustration when you realize that you have forgotten books that you already have read or that you remember specific passages or illustrations but can t remember the book they come from He accepts your practice of looking at books at friends and acuaintances houses scanning titles and analyzing organizational schemas to glean some clues about their owners likes dislikes even their identity He understands you because he is also a passionate bibliophile He openly admits his own habits and foibles around books And he s made a career out of writing books about books for people who love books In The Library at Night Manguel starts with his personal project to oversee the renovation of a 15th century barn south of the river Loire to house his own library Once you shake off the envy a 15th century barn as a personal library renovating it to your specifications in France you can accompany Manguel on his thematic exploration of the meanings of libraries across history personal libraries as well as public libraries Manguel has organized each chapter around a specific function or theme connected to libraries The Library as Myth The Library as Order The Library as Chance The Library as Oblivion etc He studies each theme from many perspectives his personal experience historical accounts and literary evidence illustrations uotes and many wonderful anecdotes I am not including any specific examples of the stories he tells since part of the joy of this book is in being surprised when you turn a page alternating with feeling a sense of familiarity with Manguel s expressing a feeling or experience that you share Be warned though this is the sort of book that leads you to follow friends family members and colleagues around as you say excitedly Just listen to thisMy main criticism of the book is that the reproduction of the images especially photographs is not the best On the other hand Yale University Press has created a book that readers can afford to buy for their own libraries even if they have already spent the majority of their last paycheck on other books Highly recommended for bibliophiles everywhere especially if they read it at night
