Rameaus brorson by Denis Diderot

By Denis Diderot

"Antingen det är fult eller vackert väder så har jag för vana att promenera i Palais-Royal vid femtiden på eftermiddagen."

Rameaus brorson (1762) är en roman i dialogform mellan berättaren och Rameaus brorson, som inte uträttat något och heller inte har velat uträtta något. Han är en snyltare som lever på andra. Hans motprestation är cyniska kvickheter och illusionslösa sanningar, han är ett slags hovnarr i de fina Parishemmen.Rameaus brorson överhopar berättaren med drastiska iakttagelser om narrspelen och gesterna i människornas värld, de förljugna poserna och de verkliga intressen som styr bakom alla moraliska fraser, i häftiga kast mellan ironi och allvar.

Denis Diderot (1713-1784) var upplysningsman och redaktör för den stora Encyklopedien som han trots myndigheternas motstånd drev vidare med outtömlig energi. Vid sidan av detta skrev han filosofiska avhandlingar, romaner, dialoger och dramer
