  • Proust et Flaubertby Mireille Naturel

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 135.80

    En 1908, écrire « un essai sur Ste-Beuve et Flaubert » fait partie des projets de Proust. Certes, il y aura l’article de la NRF , en 1920, « À propos du “style” de Flaubert », mais l'essai annoncé ne verra jamais le jour. Proust aurait-il oublié son auteur de prédilection, celui qu'il... more...

In Burma, the “détective de choc”... more...

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 56.00

    Maurice Blanchot est certainement l’un des plus éminents penseurs et écrivains du vingtième siècle, dont le retrait et la discrétion ont laissé la marque même de son effacement comme événement de l’expérience littéraire. C’est par une démarche de dialogue avec les artistes qui... more...

    Editions Rodopi 2005; US$ 70.00

    Much has been written on Simone de Beauvoir, one of France’s leading intellectual figures of the 20th century.

  • New Impressions of Africaby Raymond Roussel; Mark Ford

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 17.95 US$ 16.33

    Poet, novelist, playwright, and chess enthusiast, Raymond Roussel (1877-1933) was one of the French belle époque's most compelling literary figures. During his lifetime, Roussel's work was vociferously championed by the surrealists, but never achieved the widespread acclaim for which he yearned. New Impressions of Africa is undoubtedly Roussel's... more...
