    Vietnam and the Colonial Condition of French Literature explores an aspect of modern French literature that has been consistently overlooked in literary histories: the relationship between the colonies?their cultures, languages, and people?and formal shifts in French literary production.

  • Authority in Crisis in French Literature, 1850–1880by Seth Whidden

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 104.95

    Considering the crises of literary authority in nineteenth-century French literature against the backdrop of the Second Empire (1852-1870) and the aftermath of the bloody Paris Commune of 1871, Seth Whidden focuses on the phenomena—literary collaboration, parody, destabilized poetic form, the substitution of one poetic or narrative voice with... more...

  • You Must Remember Thisby Michael Bazzett

    Milkweed Editions 2014; US$ 16.00

    A woozy logic dominates these poems: a heart can become a buzzing hive of bees, a rooster can trigger a series of bombs, a young man can embrace a city bus as his spirit animal. Yet Bazzett slices through his poems with a dangerous sense of humor. “Your humor is deft and cutting / my fingers off one by one,? as one poem puts it. Once dismembered,... more...

Malanga... more...
