Joanthan Livingston seagull

"Most gulls don't bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight--how to get from shore to food and back again," writes author Richard Bach in this allegory about a unique bird named Jonathan Livingston Seagull. "For most gulls it is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight."
Flight is indeed the metaphor that makes the story soar. Ultimately this is a fable about the importance of seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock, tribe, or neighborhood finds your ambition threatening. (At one point our beloved gull is even banished from his flock.) By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan gets the ultimate payoff: transcendence. Ultimately, he learns the meaning of love and kindness.

Jonathan Livingston le goéland.

Depuis toujours, Jonathan Livingston s'afflige de n'être ni albatros ni pélican, en bref, de n'être doué ni pour le looping ni pour le vol plané. A la consternation de ses parents, il s'entraîne jour et nuit pour améliorer sa vitesse et sa qualité de vol. Le Grand Conseil finit par se réunir et par exclure ce drôle d'oiseau qui ne respecte pas les limites de sa race ! Jonathan en effet ne considère pas le vol comme un vulgaire moyen de déplacement, mais comme la chance d'accéder à la perfection et de donner un sens plus noble à la vie. Sa pénitence se transforme en paradis lorsqu'il rencontre Chiang l'Ancien et les autres exclus assoiffés d'infini. Chiang lui apprend l'absolu, mais aussi la responsabilité, la confiance, l'amour, la liberté.
