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.

Murger's work is largely based on his own personal experiences as poor writer living at the time in a Parisian attic and his interactions with other friends who were as well poor and struggling artists including a musician, poet, sculptor, painter and philosopher.
