Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

20 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in French and English and held by 207 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

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
Afloat by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Afloat courts risk in both form and content, making itself up as it goes along. As a work of art, it is as fresh and startling as the paintings of Maupassant's great contemporaries van Gogh and Gauguin."--Jacket

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

Du pur amour est le récit autobiographique d'une passion amoureuse entre deux hommes. C'est ce qui a donné le titre de notre thèse: "La passion selon Jouhandeau: aspects de l'écriture de soi". L'homosexualité y est traitée à l'image de Platon. L'évolution de l'amour passionnel conduit aux désillusions de l'amour et à la recherche du Sacré. Jouhandeau est un mystique de l'Eros. Cette écriture de la passion est une démarche vers la passion de l'écriture: écrits épistolaires, discours amoureux, écrit du coeur. Les deux parties de la thèse s'imbriquent comme l'avers et le revers d'une même médaille, mais elles gardent leur propre identité. La passion amoureuse fusionne avec la passion de l'écriture

Littérature et religion. Le modèle hagiographique chez Flaubert, Bloy et Huysmans by Régis Mikail Abud Filho( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The crisis the Catholic Church went through during the 19th century spread into the literary universe. The relation between faith and aesthetics establishes itself in a different way from the catholic novelists of the first half of the century: the exemplary transmission of faith through religious discourse mingles with the representation of this transmission itself through hagiographic literature. This literary and aesthetic renewal puts both fiction and hagiography into perspective. For instance, in the works of Flaubert, Bloy and Huysmans, a sanctity claiming itself to be both primitive and terrifying disrupts a catholic art accused of sentimentalism. Moreover, narratives of hagiographical inspiration, intention or subversion question literary representations of naturalism and decadentism. Rewriting sanctity is accomplished as a parallel to the transformations which affect the novel, whereas fictional characters are more closely represented in the manner of saints. The character as a saint and the saint as a character lay somewhere within an indefinite land between the narrative of the novel and the hagiographic narrative. The faith of writers such as Bloy and Huysmans calls for reflections on the discursive subversion, characteristic of the literary discourse: can faith be subversive in spite of its intentions? Inversely, a novel structured on the medievel hagiographic models of the Legend of saint Julien the Hospitaller reveals that a certain respect of the form does not necessarily imply professing one's faith
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
