Scènes de la vie de Bohème. The libretto La Bohème, by authors Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based of the novel La Vie de Bohème by Henri Murger, tells the story of six bohemians finding love and struggling to live in 19th-century Paris

Scènes de la vie de Bohème. 1417916214 (ISBN13: 9781417916214). The libretto La Bohème, by authors Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based of the novel La Vie de Bohème by Henri Murger, tells the story of six bohemians finding love and struggling to live in 19th-century Paris. La Bohème is a story I am very familiar with, as I have seen both the opera and the modern adaptation, Rent (a musical), both of which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Scenes of Bohemian Life (original French title: Scènes de la vie de bohème) is a work by Henri Murger, published in 1851. Although it is commonly called a novel, it does not follow standard novel form. Rather, it is a collection of loosely related stories, all set in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1840s, romanticizing bohemian life in a playful way. Most of the stories were originally published individually in a local literary magazine, Le Corsaire.

The Bohemians of the Latin Quarter: Scenes de la Vie de Boheme. Scenes From the Latin Quarter (Capuchin Classics). The book's style, well-caught by the translator, aptly complements the joyous life of the bohemians, free of the grinding concerns of commerce, worried about little but the demands never too strict-of their artistic calling. The episodic nature of the book's construction seems apt as well, echoing as it does the uneven lives of the bohemians. Lovers of Puccini would do well to read this book, and no resident of Bohemia should miss it. Highly recommended for most collections.

Interesting to compare the book with La Boheme, makes you think about how a story is presented in opera versus in a novel. Also interesting as a document of an artistic counterculture of the 1840s in Paris, which at its heart is surprisingly modern. But poorly written, very wordy, archaic, and formless. In the end only read it if you love La Boheme and want to see where it came from. 2 people found this helpful.

Colorful atmosphere and mostly vivid characters. Interesting to compare it to the Puccini opera that it inspired. Compared to the opera, Murger's original feels vaguely long-winded, but the same can be said of almost any literary work that is transformed for the stage. Certainly, I feel my time was well-spent reading it.

I am reading this book right now. Although I found the Preface VERY hard to get through, I am really enjoying the book itself.
However, I was very disappointed to see a major error on the part of the publisher. Chapters 1 and 2 are the same EXACT things, even though the titles of the Chapters are different. Through google, I was able to determine that this is NOT how it is supposed to be. The Chapter 1 on google is totally different than what my edition shows. For the amount of money I paid for this book, I would expect better from the publisher. This is the reason for my lower than average rating. The title of Chapter 1 is "How the Bohemian Club was Formed" and now thanks to this error I will never know how it WAS formed!
However, I am pleasantly pleased by the writing style. I was thinking that an 1800s French book would be tough to read, but it's a comical book that has totally kept my interest so far. And I have to admit the design of the book is quite nice with the colorful photo of the cover. The book almost looks like a mini-textbook.

I have been involved with the Italian opera La Boheme and found that it was based on this novel. I want to find out more about the original story. Have not finish reading the book, but it helps me to appreciate more the opera.

The episodic novel that inspired Puccini's La Boheme -- priceless!
  • Murn
Classic novel, I felt like I was in Paris in the 1800s
  • Painshade
I loved reading this. The language is florid but effective and pulls you in to the world of the bohemians. The characterization is rich and full of life. I recommend this to anyone, it's a great read.

CAUTION: Students and educators might be troubled that this book is printed on demand and bears no publisher imprint. Nor does it identify the translator. Some people will read it only with some difficulty since the margins are narrow on the inner page edges and the print is very small. On the plus side, the book is attractive enough, it has a precreased spine, and the outer margins are broad.
