Read full description of the books:



Algernon est une souris de laboratoire, Charlie Gordon un simplet employé aux médiocres besognes. Tous deux vont emprunter, grâce à une découverte du docteur Strauss et du professeur Nemur, le chemin vers l'intelligence.

Suivi par la psychologue Alice Kinnian dont il tombe rapidement amoureux, Charlie va faire de grands progrès sur le plan intellectuel. Ainsi, au terme du troisième mois de traitement, il consigne dans son journal, originellement intitulé CONTE RANDU :

J'ai téléphoné à Landsdoff au New Institute for Advanced Study, au sujet de l'utilisation des paires d'ions produites par effet photo-nucléaire, pour des recherches exploratoires en biophysique. La progression est fulgurante. Mais le plus dur est à venir, et la découverte du monde qui l'entoure sera sans concession.
Puis soudain le rêve s'effondre, Algernon décline et finit par mourir.
A rapprocher de Quotient intellectuel à vendre de John Boyd, cette fable émouvante conviendra autant aux jeunes lecteurs avides de découvertes qu'aux amateurs qui seraient passés à côté de ce livre aujourd'hui classique. Il obtint en effet le prix Hugo en 1960 et fut porté à l'écran par Ralph Nelson en 1968 sous le titre de Charly. --Laurent Schneitter

Read information about the author

Ebook Des fleurs pour Algernon read Online! Daniel Keyes was an American author best known for his Hugo award-winning short story and Nebula award-winning novel Flowers for Algernon. Keyes was given the Author Emeritus honor by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 2000.

Keyes was born in Brooklyn, New York City, New York. At age 17, he joined the U.S. Maritime Service as ship's purser. He obtained a B.A. in psychology from Brooklyn College, and after a stint in fashion photography (partner in a photography studio), earned a Master's Degree in English and American Literature at night while teaching English in New York City public schools during the day and writing weekends.

In the early 1950s, he was editor of the pulp magazine Marvel Science Fiction for publisher Martin Goodman. Circa 1952, Keyes was one of several staff writers, officially titled editors, who wrote for such horror and science fiction comics as Journey into Unknown Worlds, for which Keyes wrote two stories with artist Basil Wolverton. From 1955-56, Keyes wrote for the celebrated EC Comics, including its titles Shock Illustrated and Confessions Illustrated, under both his own name and the pseudonyms Kris Daniels, A.D. Locke and Dominik Georg.

The short story and subsequent novel, Flowers for Algernon, is written as progress reports of a mentally disabled man, Charlie, who undergoes experimental surgery and briefly becomes a genius before the effects tragically wear off. The story was initially published in the April 1959 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and the expanded novel in 1966. The novel has been adapted several times for other media, most prominently as the 1968 film Charly, starring Cliff Robertson (who won an Academy Award for Best Actor) and Claire Bloom. He also won the Hugo Award in 1959 and the Nebula Award in 1966.

Keyes went on to teach creative writing at Wayne State University, and in 1966 he became an English and creative writing professor at Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio, where he was honored as a professor emeritus in 2000.

Keyes' other books include The Fifth Sally, The Minds of Billy Milligan, The Touch, Unveiling Claudia, and the memoir Algernon, Charlie, and I: A Writer's Journey.
