  • At the Periphery of the Centerby Thomas J.D. Armbrecht

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 39.20

    At the Periphery of the Center is the first comparison of two of France’s most important twentieth-century authors, Julien Green and Marguerite Yourcenar. It examines textual elements in their plays and novels to draw conclusions about the ways that they represent homosexuality in their texts. Both Yourcenar and Green turned to drama to explore... more...

  • Marcel Proust et l’imaginairby Maarten Van Buuren

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 49.00

    A la recherche du temps perdu repose sur une théorie de l’imaginaire qui se rapproche de celle des phénoménologues: Husserl, Fink, Sartre. Mais tandis que ceux-ci partent à la recherche de l’essence des choses ( eidos ) et restent dupes d’une vision essentialiste, Proust développe une théorie anti-essentialiste.... more...

  • From Surrealism to Less-Exquisite Cadaversby Michelle Emanuel

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 56.00

    Les nouveaux mystères de Paris (1954-1959), Léo Malet’s fifteen-novel detective series inspired by Eugène Sue’s nineteenth-century feuilleton , almost achieved the goal of setting a mystery in each of the twenty Parisian arrondissements, with Nestor Burma at the center of the action. In Burma, the “détective de choc”... more...

  • Maurice Blanchot et l’art au XXème siècleby Emmanuelle Ravel

    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...

  • Writing against Deatby Susan Bainbrigge

    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. The sheer volume of her autobiographical writings testifies to her indefatigable questioning of the nature of existence and her personal and public engagement in the world over the best part of a century. This study aims to re-evaluate... more...

  • Henri Michauxby Nina Parish

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 98.00

    Henri Michaux is both a recognised poet and visual artist, arguably one of the greatest ‘double artists’ of the twentieth century.

  • Ces forces obscures de l’âmeby Christine Margerrison

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 100.80

    This is the first major investigation of Camus’s prose fiction to explore the developing presentation of women, from the author’s earliest writings to his last, unfinished novel. Avoiding the traditional relegation of this subject to an emotional or private sphere, it traces Camus’s intellectual development in order to demonstrate the... more...

  • Georges Bataille, à l’extrémité fuyante de la poésieby Sylvain Santi

    Editions Rodopi 2007; US$ 102.20

    A l’heure où l’œuvre de Georges Bataille a acquis une nouvelle dimension avec la publication de ses romans et de ses récits dans la Pléiade, il est temps de reconnaître toute son importance au mot de poésie qui, dans son œuvre, éclaire le mieux le rapport complexe que cet auteur entretint avec la littérature,... more...
