  • Aventures et expériences littérairesby Amaleena Damlé; Gill Rye

    Editions Rodopi 2014; US$ 92.00

    Dans ce nouveau millénaire, le champ littéraire en France continue à nous offrir des écrivains et des écrivaines étincelant(e)s, qui ne craignent pas de provoquer et de prendre des risques littéraires et philosophiques. Plus que jamais, les écrivaines, qui ont longtemps lutté pour être reconnues comme artistes et penseuses égales aux hommes, se trouvent... more...

  • Reading Unrulyby Zahi Zalloua

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2014; US$ 35.00

    Drawing on literary theory and canonical French literature, Reading Unruly examines unruliness as both an aesthetic category and a mode of reading conceived as ethical response.

    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2014; US$ 72.92

    The epic tales of medieval France, called "chansons de geste", or "songs of deeds", provided the chief means of cultural and imaginative expression in the French language for over one hundred and fifty years (c.1100-1250), during one of the most significant periods of social change in the history of Western civilisation. Yet they remain largely unknown... more...

  • Subversive Literaturby Martin Mulsow; Dirk Sangmeister

    Wallstein Verlag 2014; US$ 26.12

    Im Zeitalter der Französischen Revolution erschienen in Deutschland zahlreiche Bücher, die so freisinnig und andersartig waren, dass ihre Verfasser vorsichtshalber anonym bleiben und die Verleger sich hinter phantasievoll fingierten Maskierungen verstecken mussten, um Zensoren, Häscher und Obrigkeiten zu täuschen. Auffällig viele dieser subversiven,... more...
