  • Poetik der Fülleby Constanze Fröhlich

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2014; US$ 38.32

    Sämtliche Texte des französischen Dramatikers Valère Novarina, die Leser und Zuschauer beständig mit einem Zuviel an sprachlicher Information konfrontieren, sind dem Prinzip sprachlicher Fülle verpflichtet. Hinter diesem verwirrenden Überfluss verbirgt sich eine leidenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Sprache und dem Sprechen, die nicht nur in... more...

  • L?idéologie politique de Marguerite Yourcenar d?après son ?uvre romanesqueby Mireille Blanchet-Douspis

    Editions Rodopi 2013; US$ 63.00

    Marguerite Yourcenar a répété qu?on ne comprenait bien l?histoire du présent qu?à la lumière du passé. Dans cette affirmation, il y a assurément une vérité difficilement réfutable. Cependant, ne juger que d?après le passé, n?est-ce pas poser a priori que le présent n?en est que la reproduction et que rien ne change jamais dans l?histoire de l?humanité... more...

  • Against Autobiographyby Lia Nicole Brozgal

    UNP - Nebraska 2013; US$ 50.00

    The work of Tunisian Jewish intellectual Albert Memmi, like that of many francophone Maghrebian writers, is often read as thinly veiled autobiography. Questioning the prevailing body of criticism, which continues this interpretation of most fiction produced by francophone North African writers, Lia Nicole Brozgal shows how such interpretations of... more...

  • Marcel Proust in the Light of William Jamesby Marilyn M. Sachs

    Lexington Books 2013; US$ 99.99

    Although William James was a significant presence in Paris at the dawn of the 20th century, his psychological and philosophical theories well known, any role he played in the gestation of Marcel Proust?s ground-breaking novel À la recherche du temps perdu has been neglected by scholars on both sides of the Atlantic?until now. Much of what made... more...

  • Alfred Jarryby Karl Pollin

    Editions Rodopi 2013; US$ 78.40

    D?Alfred Jarry, on ne retient souvent de nos jours que le scandaleux Ubu Roi. Cela revient cependant à passer sous silence la singulière expérimentation, placée sous le signe de l?enfance, dans laquelle l?existence de l?écrivain s?est peu à peu abimée. Au creux de sa voix lézardée se devine un désir éperdu de mettre en mots les forces de déflagration... more...
