(Astérix et les Normands) Pdf ✓ René Goscinny
Fear is essential and vital to know your strength limits of you abilities Also this the first volume where Cacofonix is not beaten at the last page Resistance to modernism29 September 2012 Once again this entire adventure takes place in the little village we know so well One of Chief Vitalstatistix s nephews has been sent from Lutetia Paris out to Amorica to toughen him up and as it turns out he comes across as one of those young people who Dark Ties (Broken Saints Society do not understand the concept of work He arrives in a sporty chariot made in Milan which made me think of the Ferarri and in a way brings the idea of the city life out to the country However the album is than this because way up north in Scandanavia the Norsemen who are the Normans want to learn the meaning of fear so that they might be able to fly so they jump in a boat and sail to a random place which happens to be this little village we know so well to find out all about fear There are uite a few jokes about Normans and conuests here and a part of me when I read this album about ten years ago thought it was wrong However and I have not researched this I suspect that the Normans originally were Vikings thaturing the period of the Viking invasions came and settled in the region known now as Normandy The Vikings actually Um Fogo Eterno did that uite a lot There was a period of English history when the Danes pretty much controlled a large chunk of central England which at the time was called the Dane Law Further there are a number of jokes about how the Normans were not actually supposed to arrive for a few centuries yet Now I understand that Asterix is not necessarily supposed to be historically accurate but one thing that it is is satire As I read this one I came to understand what the whole basis of these albums are supposed to be As I said it is not necessarily political or social criticism but rather satire The idea that I came across is that struggle that exists between the pastoral idealism of the country and the modernising influence of the city Where the little village we know so well reflects the tranuil idealism of the country the Romans reflect the modernising influence that is rolling out over our world Many of us on the modernising side like to see our ideas as being progress however being on the intellectual university trained side we fail to see the pleasant aspects of a rural setting where thingso not change and have not changed for years For instance we have the green grass the singing birds the communal feasts and the general aspect where everybody knows everybody else However there tends to be a resistance among such places against the modernising influence as can be represented by Cacofonix the bard The truth is that it is not that Cacofonix is playing modern music it is simply that he cannot sing and cannot play music at all When the Lutetian tells him that he will be a hit in Lutetia it is not because he is any good it is because the variety of tastes that come about in the big city will mean that people will actually come to see that maybe this person that cannot play music for the life of him is simply somebody who is experimenting and trying something new humor history superheroes word play satire stereotypesMy French grandfather thoroughly enjoyed anything to Lawn Boy Returns do with word play so this aspect of the book feels right BUT what a challenge for the translators What s punny in one language is probably not so in the other One of theseays I ll read the original. Estamos en el ano 50 antes e Jesucristo Toda la Galia esta ocupada por los romanos Toda No Una aldea poblada por irreductibles galos resist.
French version and hopefully my French is strong enough to appreciate the work of the translatorsI may pick up another volume in this series My fav Asterix of all times 3 FINALLY The Northmen found their match And a little spoiled city brat learned to keep his gap tightly closed and grow the hell up Asterix oes it again This graphic album was a great find from a pile of clearance books at National Book Store in Centrio There were a few other Asterix titles on sale but this was the only one was by it original creators Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo It was at half price off so it was very hard not to buyDespite it being half price off truth be told I was hesitating to getting it It is not that I The Fairytale Hairdresser and Sleeping Beauty don t enjoy Franco Belgian comics I enjoy Herge s Tintin and Peyo s Smurfs It was that the first few Asterix I read Iidn t uite get the European style of humor But that changed with this volumeI thought the premise was idiotic Vikings who wanted to know the meaning of fear They were not even called Vikings here but Normans and although Normans may be related to Vikings they idn t settle in France a few centuries later Although since the word Norman actually means northman it was technically correct to refer to them here as NormansAnother plot involved the city kid that is Asterix s chief s nephew His father was worried that Justforkix was getting soft sent him to Asterix s village to grow up a littleI was initially puzzled how this two plots would merge as the story ends but it oes beautifully I thought it was corny at first but I ended up laughing at tbe last few pages as the graphic album winded The First Mistake down It also helped that Uderzo has just a great comic style that blended seamlessly with Goscinny s plots and wordsThis volume helped make me a believer It was plain to see why Goscinny and Uderzo were considered legends of Franco Belgian comics This one is a pretty ingenious story The Normanson t know what fear is and Jewelry Making For Beginners decide they need to learn it so they can fly They know of nobody who can teach them so they set off on a trip ultimately landing in Gaul In the meanwhile Chief Vitalstatistix has his nephew sent to him to be toughened up Of course he turns out to be the only person who knows what fear is This was pretty brilliant Though there wasn t much wordplay on the names the Norman names were still funny Cacofonix turns out to be a saviour for once and gets to feast with everyone else at the end The poor Normans ended up terrified and went back home the scared than the scaree My favourite pun The latest music band The Rolling Menhirs In which the Normanson t invade Gaul not uite yet at any rate They arrive at Gaulish shores on an expedition to seek out anybody who can teach them the meaning of fear Why Because it lends us wings fear oes apparently and therefore holds the secret to flight You have to love these booksThe Normans Vikings are epicted as a tremendously fearsome and belligerent bunch they The Penguin Book of English Verse drink apple brandy from the skulls of their slain enemies a fact that in itself paves the way for some fantastic puns Yet the Gauls aren t afraid either except of the sky falling on their heads so it s a bit of an impasse when it comes to this sort of thing In fact the Gauls welcome the possibility of a confrontation That is all except one the young nephew of Chief Vitalstatistix who is on a forced vacation of sorts he has been sent from Lutetia by his father who wants the Gauls to toughen him up a bit Itoes.
