The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in French and English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oeuvre d'un poète partagé entre ses propres contradicitons, qui s'inspira autant de la réalité que de l'idéal abstrait en célébrant des faits immondes et a priori sans valeur. Composée de pièces et de poèmes, sa publication fut suivie d'un procès. Le texte de l'édition de 1861 est accompagné des principales variantes, de poèmes supplémentaires de l'édition de 1868, de projets de préface, etc

An Iceland fisherman by Pierre Loti( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in French and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About a group of French fishermen who leave Brittany to fish in the rough but bountiful waters off the coast of Iceland, this book is as much about the struggles they face in the violent weather of the North Atlantic as it is about the heartbreak faced by those left behind. Full of vivid descriptions of life both at sea and on land, the range of emotions felt by these men of the sea has never been better captured--from the solitude and isolation after many weeks at sea, to the jubilations of returning home after many months away
Poussières de Paris by Jean Lorrain( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthologie de chroniques parisiennes issues de deux recueils qui reprenaient pour l'essentiel des articles parus dans "l'Echo de Paris" (1894-1895) et dans le "Journal" (1899-1900). Représentant de l'esprit fin-de-siècle et du décadentisme, leur auteur s'est livré à un travail journalistique qui illustre les changements opérés entre la fin du XIXe siècle et l'aube du XXe siècle
L'Atelier de Baudelaire by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Afloat by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Afloat is a book of dazzling but treacherously shifting currents, a seemingly simple logbook of a sailing cruise along the French Mediterranean coast that opens up to reveal unexpected depths, as Guy de Maupassant merges fact and fiction, dream, polemic, and documentation in a wholly original manner. Humorous and troubling stories, unreliable confessions, stray reminiscences', and thoughts on life, love, art, nature, and society all find a place in Maupassant's pages, which are, in conception and in effect, so many reflections of the fluid sea on which he finds himself - at once happily and precariously - afloat."

La passion selon Jouhandeau aspects de l'écriture de soi dans "Du pur amour" de Marcel Jouhandeau by Anne-Yvonne Plessis-Ferre( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pure Amour is the autobiographie of a passionate love affair between two men. It's thus the title of our thesis : « Passion according to Jouhandeau : aspects of writing about oneself ». The first part refers to the narrative about passion : how a passionate love affair begins and then how the body exults. Homosexuality is viewed through Plato, not only with great tolerance, but also with exceptional dimension. But, the evolution of passionate love leads to disillusions of love and the search for the Sacred. That's how Jouhandeau falls into a passionate desire which fortunately leads him in a world of sublimation and into Pure Amour, influenced by Fenelon. Because Jouhandeau is a mystic in search of wisdom, and especially, of the mysticism of Eros. This narrative about passion leads towards the second part of our study : the passion of writing analysing the epistolary process, the dissertation about love and the writing from the heart. In Pure Amour, Jouhandeau tries to make us believe in a passionate exceptional love for Robert and ending by its death. Let's emphasize that the two parts of the thesis overlap as the two faces of the same coin, and it's therefore impossible to separate them as they keep their own identity. The passionate love fusions with the passion of writing

Pierre Loti, le temps à l'oeuvre by Gaultier Roux( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pierre Loti is still considered by most readers as old-fashioned. But being old-fashioned, or even moreout-of-fashion is an essential characteristic of Loti's mind and stylistics. This study aims at showing how time isa fundamental key in reading Pierre Loti's books and in understanding his aesthetics, which betray his rathertemporal than geographic relationship to the world. Loti is not less than obsessed by time: time goes by in apermanent flow that generates loss - an ambivalent loss which is both positive and negative, desired and feared.The past is comforting because intangible. This research explores Loti's childhood as a retrospective memory, aliterary construction and a mythologizing of self. Childhood is a paradise lost which Loti will always regret witha deep melancholy as his own travels can be seen later on as a quest for Eden, but for an Eden that will alwaysappear already ruined. Then, the essay suggests an analysis of the construction of a heteronymic identity: JulienViaud becomes Pierre Loti by the powers of literature, travesty, parties' entertainment and scenographies of theself. This other self, completing, not competing with the other one, can be considered as a construction fulfillingthe losses of his own life. In the same manner, the death of his older brother determines his search of fictive andreal manly otherness, as well as it innervates his work with further disappearances replaying the original one.Therefore, the essay highlights the staging of failure in different novels of the author, the death of heroes leading to an explanation of Loti's fascination for death. At last, Loti's work is being looked over through thecriteria of melancholy of sight, nostalgia of writing and blandness of stylistics, in order to unveil the width of hisfondness for things past, always preferred to the present ones, or to events to come. An this because the past -even if chimerical - is Loti's only refuge against his feeling of the vanity of life
Les traductions italiennes de Colette un aspect de la fortune de Colette en Italie : traduction et réception by Paola Cadeddu( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Le travail présenté dans cette thèse s'inscrit tant dans le domaine de la littérature française que de la réception littéraire. Visant à comprendre le rapport déséquilibré qui lie un grand écrivain français de la portée de Colette à l'Italie, nous avons procédé à une analyse comparative menée sur les traductions italiennes des quatre œuvres colettiennes. Ce travail nous a permis de comprendre que l'image que les lecteurs italiens ont de Colette ne correspond que grosso modo à la perception du public français. Considérée en France comme l'un de plus grands écrivains du XXe siècle, elle avait été réduite par la critique italienne à une "femme à scandales", auteur de romans érotiques. En Italie, le travail de l'édition, de la critique littéraire et des traducteurs avait tellement contribué à consolider cette image qu'aujourd'hui il semble impossible d'imaginer une Colette autre que celle qui a écrit les Claudine ou La Vagabonde.Notre étude vise à restituer à ce grand écrivain français sa place dans le panorama littéraire contemporain, une place qu'elle avait durement conquise grâce à un travail minutieux et incessant sur la langue française.Ce travail a pour ambition de permettre au public italien de redécouvrir une Colette inédite et aux mille visages, un écrivain caméléonesque qui a su s'adapter à toute situation narrative. En effet, seul une connaissance approfondie peut consentir une relecture consciente de l'œuvre colettienne capable d'ouvrir des nouvelles perspectives et de bâtir une nouvelle perception totalement détachée des clichés jusque-là répandus
