Inspired by the process of creating a library for his home near the Loire, in France, Alberto Manguel, writer on books and reading, has taken up the subject of libraries. "Libraries have always seemed to me pleasantly mad places, and for as long as I can remember I've been seduced by their labyrinthine logic." In this personal, deliberately unsystematic, and wide-ranging book, he offers a meditation on the meaning of libraries. Manguel, a guide of irrepressible enthusiasm, conducts a unique library tour that extends from his childhood bookshelves to the Internet, from Ancient Egypt and Greece to the Arab world, from China and Rome to Google. He ponders the personal libraries of Charles Dickens, Jorge Luis Borges, and others. He recounts stories of people who have struggled against tyranny to preserve freedom of thought, oral "memory libraries" kept alive by prisoners, libraries of banned books, and the library of books never written.--From publisher description.… (mere)

A partir da sua mítica biblioteca pessoal, Alberto Manguel, um dos mais conceituados bibliófilos do mundo, conta-nos tudo o que sabe sobre a história, o fascínio e os enigmas das bibliotecas.

Ao construir a sua biblioteca com mais de 40 mil livros num antigo presbitério em França, Alberto Manguel debateu-se com as mesmas questões de um qualquer bibliotecário caseiro: é melhor dividir por línguas? A ordem alfabética será a mais prática? Os géneros não deviam estar agrupados? Mesmo que não existam respostas certas, neste livro Manguel conta pelo menos as melhores histórias: Há bibliotecas públicas com secções como «Esgotos: Obras Seleccionadas», e umas privadas onde, alfabeticamente, os amigos-escritores Borges e Bioy Casares ficam lado a lado; há bibliotecários corajosos que alteram registos de requisição para salvar livros, e livros corajosos que salvam homens torturados; há livros perdidos, livros proibidos, livros digitais, livros que ficam numa prateleira demasiado alta e livros imaginados – mas todos eles ocupam um espaço e enchem estantes pelo mundo, tal como preenchem esta "Biblioteca à Noite".

The author seems a bit full of himself. I own the books I do because I enjoy them, not to impress others about how literate I am.

I have bookcases in the rooms we live in, not a separate library with a wall from a medieval castle. Well, good for him, but it makes relating to what he writes very difficult. I gave up fairly early. ( )
  MarthaJeanne | Jan 30, 2020 |
A. Manguel, comme dans ses précédents essais, nous livre une réflexion riche, érudite et humoristique sur les bibliothèques du monde et de la sienne en particulier ( )

A book about libraries and reading is a bit of an easy mark, but this one was done well. The prose is lucid and familiar, the subject is broad across time and place, and the curious facts and incidental stories are frequent. My kind of book. ( )

In my fool hardy youth, when my friends were dreaming of heroic deeds in the realms of engineering and law, finance and national politics, I dreamt of becoming a librarian.


I did not, but have always felt safe there, even when I walked into the bottom of a concrete staircase and was nearly knocked unconscious. There's unfortunately something mercenary about me. I love used bookstores more. I also leer at the books of other people when I am in their homes.


Manguel spends excessive time with the physical aspects and functions of libraries. There are dabs of criticism, almost poetic but I wanted more. I want someone to capture the way I feel when approaching Powell's or The Strand. ( )

The Library at Night, fortunately, is more than a tour of the microcosm contained in Manguel's converted barn. Its fondness for leathery bindings and its fussy annoyance about the 'evil white scabs' of price-stickers slimily glued to book jackets soon give way to a crusading defence of the library as a mental sanctuary, a repository of memory, the only kind of home that has any emotional value for Manguel the deracinated cosmopolitan.
tilføjet af Ludi_Ling | RedigerThe Observer, Peter Conrad (Apr 22, 2008)
 
Manguel beschrijft de vele facetten en problemen van het verzamelen, zowel voor de particuliere verzamelaar als voor de professionele bibliothecaris.
Wie het boek van Alberto Manguel leest, maakt een boeiende en interessante reis door de boekenwereld van vele eeuwen. Boeiende beschrijvingen, doortrokken met anekdotes die in Manguels fabelachtige geheugen liggen opgeslagen. Ik raad iedereen die meer dan honderd boeken heeft aan dit boek te kopen en te lezen
 
De bibliotheek bij nacht is een boek over de manieren waarop de mens door de eeuwen heen boeken heeft verzameld en bibliotheken heeft vormgegeven. Manguel is niet alleen geïnteresseerd in geschiedenis en architectuur, maar ook in de psychologie van de bibliothecaris, waarbij hij volop ruimte biedt aan anekdotes die ergens in zijn fabelachtige geheugen lagen opgeslagen („Ik denk in citaten”).

Den spränglärde Alberto Manguel har skrivit en faktaspäckad bibliotekshistoria med poetiska och en del humoristiska och tragikomiska inslag. Om dock, som sagt, alltför välfylld
tilføjet af andejons | Redigerdagensbok.com, Eva Björnberg (Oct 26, 2007)
 
Manguels bok har den där sällsynta kombinationen av lätthet och tyngd, oväntade infall och uppfordrande eftertanke.

The library in which I have at long last collected my books began life as a barn sometime in the fifteenth century, perched on a small hill south of the Loire.

If a library is a mirror of the universe, then a catalogue is a mirror of that mirror.
Writing about the librarian's action [hiding the books], Borzykowski remarked that it was carried out "without any consideration as to whether anyone would ever need the saved books": it was an act of rescuing memory per se. The universe, the ancient cabbalists believed, is not contingent on our reading it; only on the possibility of our reading it.
In order for these nightly imaginations to flourish, I must allow my other senses to awaken—to see and touch the pages, to hear the crinkle and the rustle of the paper and the fearful crack of the spine, to smell the wood of the shelves, the musky perfume of the leather bindings, the acrid scent of my yellowing pocket books. Then I can sleep.
