  • Amadas and Ydoine (Routledge Revivals)by Ross G. Arthur

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 40.53

    This translation, first published in 1993, presents a little-known medieval romance to readers who do not know Old French, or who are generally unfamiliar with the literature of the Middle Ages. Probably composed between 1190 and 1220, the major interest of Amadas and Ydoine to modern readers is that its basic structure is unflinchingly conventional,... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 105.00

    A book about the role America plays in the French imagination, as it translates to the French stage. Informed by a rich variety of Western cultural scholarship, Essif examines two dozen post-1960 works representing some of the most innovative dramaturgy of the last half century, including works by Gatti, Obaldia, Cixous, Koltès, and Vinaver. more...

This book analyses Devi’s unconventional... more...

  • Andre Malrauxby Geoffrey T. Harris

    Palgrave Macmillan 1995; US$ 205.00

    This book analyses Malraux's writing from his journalism in Indochina to his novels, art studies and (anti)memorialist essays. Cutting through the established dual biographical image of Malraux as a committed leftwinger and revolutionary novelist turned unconditional Gaullist and diehard anti-Communist at the Liberation, it makes a balanced assessment... more...

  • Andre Malraux: An Age of Oppression (le Temps Du Mepris)by Roberta Newnham

    Intellect Books Ltd 2003; US$ 23.00

    Aimed to coincide with the centenary of Malraux's birth, André Malraux: An Age of Oppression is the first translation/annotated edition of Le Temps de mépris in a comprehensive format. The story (with the emphasis upon the psychological trauma suffered by a German political prisoner of the Nazis in the early 1930s) marks a significant moment in Malraux's... more...

  • The Androgyne in Early Modern Franceby Marian Rothstein

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 95.00

    Based on sources in Genesis and Plato's Symposium , the androygyne during Early Modern France was a means of expressing the full potential of humans made in the image of God.

  • André Maurois (1885-1967)by Lionel Gossman

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 46.66

    Respected by his peers and hugely successful internationally in his own time, André Maurois is now hardly read. Moderate and conciliatory in everything, including his literary style, he appealed to the educated reader of his time, but did those very qualities prevent him from achieving lasting distinction and impact? more...

  • André du Bouchetby Victor Martinez

    Editions Rodopi 2013; Not Available

    L’œuvre du poète français André du Bouchet (Paris, 1924 – Truinas, 2001) constitue un apport inédit pour les recherches en linguistique et poétique contemporaine. L’attention au « dehors » qui caractérise une telle poésie ne débouche pas sur une poésie descriptive, objective ou référentielle, mais sur l’idée que le rapport à la réalité est invisible... more...

  • Angelic Echoesby Ralph Sarkonak

    University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division 2000; Not Available

    Sarkonak shows that Guibert’s work is a brilliant example of the emphasis on disclosure that marks recent queer writing – in contrast to the denial and cryptic allusion that characterized much of the work by gay writers of previous generations. more...
