Dix-huit monographies précieuses analysant l'oeuvre des auteurs qui se sont particulièrement illustrés dans ce genre périphérique à la littérature romanesque. Ce sont les héros, les personnages qui composent cette mythologie populaire, que le chercheur infatigable qu'est Lacassin a voulu surtout mythanalyser: Sherlock Holmes, Father Brown, Charlie Chan et autres. Chacun de ces portraits est accompagné d'une bibliographie exhaustive et, à l'occasion, d'une filmographie. Une bibliographie générale termine le second tome

Les Mystères de Paris by Eugène Sue( Book )
17 editions published between 1843 and 2005 in French and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On ne peut imaginer aujourd'hui l'impact que ce roman produisit sur la France entière et même sur l'Europe dès sa parution en feuilleton (1841-1842) puis en volume. Cet ouvrage devenait ##le## roman-feuilleton exemplaire, faisant loucher Balzac, invitant Féval à le transposer, influençant même Hugo en train de composer ##Les misérables##. Plus que l'intrigue stéréotypée mérite de revivre cette atmosphère très bien rendue, sociologiquement et poétiquement, du Paris romantique de 1830; à ce point de vue, le gros roman demeure l'un des chefs-d'oeuvre du genre. Comprend une préface (p. 7-20) et un dossier sur les réactions des lecteurs de l'époque (p. 1217-1305). [SDM]
Pour une contre-histoire du cinéma by Francis Lacassin( Book )
15 editions published between 1972 and 1994 in French and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The memoirs of Jacques Casanova de Seingalt by Giacomo Casanova( Book )
22 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in French and Undetermined and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Giacomo Girolamo Casanova de Seingalt was an Italian adventurer and author from the Republic of Venice. His autobiography is regarded as one of the most authentic sources of the customs and norms of European social life during the 18th century. He was so famous as a womanizer that his name remains synonymous with the art of seduction. He associated with European royalty, popes and cardinals, along with luminaries such as Voltaire, Goethe and Mozart. He spent his last years in Bohemia as a librarian in Count Waldstein's household, where he also wrote the story of his life. As noted in the introduction by Arthur Symons, these memoirs, "... are the history of a unique life, a unique personality, one of the greatest of autobiographies; as a record of adventures, they are more entertaining than Gil Blas, or Monte Cristo, or any of the imaginary travels, and escapes, and masquerades in life, which have been written in imitation of them."
