PROSPER MÉRIMÉE (1803 -1870)
By his accurate, rugged and picturesque style, Prosper Mérimée moves to the forefront of the french writers of the 19th century. No one was able to evoke with dramatic accuracy a period or a country. Colomba is his masterpiece. It's Corsica with its fierce and its ancient customs which relives before us.
Lieutenant Orso della Rebbia is back in Corsica. He is expected by Colomba, his younger sister, who press him to punish the killers of their father. Confrontation of rival families, archaic customs, clandestine life in the scrub. With Colomba, Mérimée gives us the great image of a wild island, inhabited by strange superstitions...
